East Indian Baazaar Online

A unique Coffee Table book covering those glorious 500 years which changed the history of the world. Years which saw the East Indian community rise up to great heights and become the celebrated “Children of the soil”. 
 The book was launched at a high profile event at St Andrew’s Auditorium, Mumbai after private readings at the Sheraton, Philadelphia and the heritage Chanler Hotel at Rhode Island.
The book has crossed the seas from UK, USA and Canada to the Middle East, New Zealand and Australia and has raised a tidy sum for charity.
Here are a few highlights:

Egyptians, Phoenicians, Jews, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Venetians, Portuguese, French and finally the British found their way here.
