DESCRIPTION:

‘‘मेरे लिए यात्रा, मेरे भीतर अनवरत चलती एक तलाश का जैसे प्रत्युत्तर है। न जाने क्यों सुदूर देश की धरती, उसकी सुनी-अनसुनी कहानियाँ, वहाँ के निवासियों के प्रति एक अपरिभाषित उत्सुकता मेरे मन में रहस्य का एक तन्तुजाल बुनती है जो मेरी चेतना पर छा कर मेरे अस्तित्व को बेचैनी से भर देता है। बहुधा कहा जाता है कि प्रसन्नता कहीं बाहर नहीं प्राप्त होती, उसका स्रोत मनुष्य के भीतर है, मनुष्य के हृदय में है, फिर भी हम प्रसन्नता को बाहर खोजते हैं - सांसारिक वस्तुओं में या अपने से दूसरे के अस्तित्व में। सबके लिए प्रसन्नता के अर्थ भिन्न होते हैं, उसी के अनुसार हर कोई अपने जीवन में अपनी इच्छाओं और रुचियों को ढालता चला जाता है, शायद इसीलिए अनुसंधान के लिए यात्रा या यात्रा के मध्य अनुसंधान मेरा आकर्षण बन गया है।’’

                          DESCRIPTION:

                          A Backbreaking Misadventure in the Himalayas.

                          A psychedelic odyssey like no other, spanning the exotic foothills of the eastern Himalayas.

                          In the summer of 2011, two bleary-eyed kids, teetering on the cusp of adulthood, decide to drop out of the daily grind and just travel. But once they hit the road, their plans go out the window. Soon, they are barreling over potholes the size of lunar craters in Nepal, bungee jumping in Rishikesh, waking up to Buddhist chants in Sikkim and cycling down the world’s highest motorable pass in Ladakh. On the way is a constant stream of oddballs, like the five-second-tea lady, the flute-playing hotel manager, flying Sonam, reggae junkies and many more – this journey is all about rolling with the punches.

                          Special Lassi is one part funny, two parts crazy and a whisper of wistful – for the best things are ephemeral and a lust for life is a dangerous thing.

                                              You should be writing on one of our great Indian papers, then you will really be starting to understand us'. A chance conversation with her greengrocer about the media's portrayal of India inspired journalist Justine Hardy to leave London and following in the footsteps of Rudyard Kipling, spend a year reporting for an Indian newspaper. Following the direction of her eccentric landlord -an erstwhile Rajput prince and an editor at The Indian Express, her new life takes her across the Himalayas, Assam tea gardens and city slums, exploring marriage, spirituality and the remnants of Empire in the heart of modern India.

Without an agenda or expectations, Ms. Dallal sets out to live in five Islamic cultures for 40 days each. She finds herself in the tsunami-ravaged city of Banda Aceh, Indonesia, then ventures deep into the Egyptian Sahara to the Siwa Oasis, where donkey carts are the main form of transport. She follows a beautiful song to the forgotten island of Zanzibar, where sun and surf crash against a tumultuous past. Next, she lands in Jordan, a peaceful kingdom and haven for refugees from strife-torn lands and finally spends 40 days in China's largest province, the predominantly Muslim Xinjiang Autonomous Region. Join the adventure, release your fears and gain a new perspective on a wide slice of our world that we hear so much and know so little about. You will be surprised, delighted and sometimes shocked at the fascinating web of true-life tales told by this 21st century Scheherazade.

He sets his sights on Campbell Island near New Zealand -the point on the planet opposite to his home in Newcastle. In an adventure wrapped in nonsense, he travels by car, bus, boat, plane and train, sleeps in five-star luxury and on no-star sofas, resorts to the hair of the dog in multiple time zones and schmoozes with Hollywood A-listers -all the while wearing the same pair of underpants.

The chase for India's most wanted terrorist. The lives of three of Mumbai Police's best informers collide in this shady underworld. It's a bad, bad world. A world of crime, sex, drugs, murder and betrayal. He who lies, lives to see the light of another day... a day replete with even greater risks. From shady underworld dealings to switching gang loyalties, the men graduate to selling information on terrorism. Then begins the chase, to catch India's most wanted terrorist: Riyaz Bhatkal, the man with an ominous track record of masterminding twenty-two blasts across the country since 2005. The search takes them to the most unassuming yet dangerous terror hubs across India. With trust in short supply, time ticking away and the sword of Damocles over their heads, the men can only hope that they are not on a wild goose chase

                                                                                                                              As a journalist on the crime beat, the author has spent long hours talking to those in uniform, those in the underworld and those in the grey zone -people who work as police informers. Much of what he has seen, heard and observed in over a decade of covering crime has found its way into print. But there's a lot that's spoken of in hushed tones or buried in underworld lore. The underworld speaks its own language and words are invented on the spur of the moment. A shooter is referred to as an "artist", an informer is simply "zero dial", Dubai is "Delhi", while arrest is "get admitted". Most of these are aimed at sending the police or adversaries on a wild goose chase. It's a world that thrives on the spirit of enterprise, actively courts power and danger and has conquered fear. The rules are straight and the ethics sacrosanct. The principles of 'dhanda' apply equally here -risk, profit and competition are at the very core. An informer will think nothing of selling precious information on a rival if it can earn him extra bucks or goodwill from the police.
