The thing common to all people who've had great experiences is talkativeness.
And since Anju has a flair for words and a publisher too, you get a whole book.
Crossword, a reputed bookstore, is arranging an interaction with Anju Poddar, the author of "A Journey to the Heavens". Basically a social worker, Anju is also a member of many social organizations. She has an honors degree in arts from the Meerut University, and has done her B.E. from the University of Oklahoma. A daughter of noted industrialist K N Modi, Anju is passionate about reading, and loves contemporary art, textiles, making friends and traveling.
Anju will today discuss her enlightening journey to Mount Kailash and the majestic Manasarovar at Crossword.
Pilgrimage is an activity common to many religions. The faithful set off on long journeys to particular places with the hope of gaining virtue and merit. What distinguishes Mount Kailash is that for many people of different faiths in south and central Asia, it is the holiest mountain on earth. Moreover, even for those with no specific faith, the mountain's physical form and color make it a natural symbol of purity.
In "A Journey to the Heavens", Anju Poddar shares her own experience of making a pilgrimage to Mount Kailash in Western Tibet. Besides narrating her experiences, she includes practical advice to any who are inspired enough to follow in her footsteps.
Chandana Khan, Secretary, the Department of Tourism, will be chief guest on the
occasion. Please contact Naresh Sharma, Crossword, at 776-3239/42 for further
