Abstract:

An engaging book of journeys to the South Indian temple towns of Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, Beyond the Gopurams takes a close and interested look at the different faces of religious faith and devotion. Impelled both by the need to belong and the desire to not be rigidly rooted, it explores the idea of home in all its delightful and elusive flavours. Since each journey in the outside world can be a journey within too, this travelogue traverses the inner terrain of the author's consciousness and records its changing landscape under the impact of each new experience. Personal and honest, the author takes us on an uplifting journey where we effortlessly witness the world through her eyes.
