Book Excerpt: Land of the Seven Rivers

History and geography have always fascinated me. It is my firm belief that geography is the greatest determinant of history. 

Land of the Seven Rivers - A Brief History of India's Geography is one of the best history (and geography) books I have read in the last two decades. I strongly urge you to read this brilliant work by Sanjeev Sanyal, the chief global strategist for Deutsche Bank. The book offers great insight into the Indians' sense of history and civilizational continuities in almost walks of life.
