India On The Move is a free to download eBook.  A photographic record of our four-week train journey around Northern India.  Our base was in New Delhi.  We started off with the deeply religious Varanasi, in the monsoon.  Moved on to the classic tourist destination of Agra.  Then on down to the gem city of Jaipur.  Thereafter we headed for the desert, which scarcely resembles a desert, at Jaisalmer in Rajasthan.  Taking the time to camel safari, visiting the nomadic and village people.  Finally, we headed up to Amritsar, home of the Sikhs and the Wagah Border with Pakistan.

 

“India on the Move” is a flavour of what we saw as we navigated the classic marble triangle that tourists visit, always reminded that this is the second most populous country in the world.  The book captures everyday life and life on and from the train.  There is something awe-inspiring about travelling second class AC sleeper and wakening up in the morning to the sight of India flying past the window and watching the sunrise over the Rajasthan or Punjabi countryside.
