    I much prefer travel guides that are written by ‘actual’ people, who have a passion and a love for a particular destination. In the case of Taj Mahal and Tea, the author is not only a fine storyteller, but an observant raconteur who brings to life the human nuances of Indian culture and community. Humour pathos, sincerity – the book has it and more. I can heartily recommend it.

    Such a wonderful and heart-warming book 🙂 A definite must read!
    A truly inspirational journey of self-realization which each individual should experience as the discovery is the best reward and fulfillment

    I’d have to say i absolutely loved the introspective “Selfies, Surprises and Self-Realisations”… it is amazing to read how what started out as a trip turned into such a life altering experience. I don’t want to give away too much, but the end of the book had me in tears… Are cute, funny travel books supposed to do that?

    Good book

  11. Nivedita Singh

    This book is really good if anyone really likes to know or explore Indian culture, general people’s behavior, Holi festival, Diwali festival, the lifestyle of cities and village, architecture, and also the problem while traveling India. And also good for the people of India to know the expectations and feelings of people outside India. The way of explaining the journey of Isabel is very amazing, I really like this book.

    Amazing book

  13. Diane Bothner

    A heartfelt, genuine exposé of a journey through a vibrant, colourful country whose charm and culture helped ease the pain of loss and plant the seeds for renewed hope, love of life and family.

  14. Anshika Singh

    Isabel’s honesty and humour is what makes this book incredible. Loved the funny observations, tickles and non-stop commentary on simple things in lndia that could never have been put in a better way by anyone else apart from her. The book is filled with funny incidences from her travels but has deeper messages and sweeter moments. It is great to read about the festivals and even the day to day activities being described in such unconventional and unique way.
    In times like these it is important to have such reminders to be courageous and full of life. If you love good storytelling dipped in generous dose of humour and yet something very philosophical and profound, then this is the book for you.

    Every now and then, we all tend to go down memory lane. Visit those quaint little insignificant places that others might just walk past yet they hold such joyful memories for us and mean the world.

    That’s how I felt as I took my trip down memory lane through this wonderful book. I thoroughly enjoyed the detailed account of the journeys taken by the author. The small anecdotes that would put a smile on the faces of people who know and have been to India, while intriguing (as well hopefully enticing them to visit) the people who don’t.

    Perfectly capturing the essence of India, one can almost feel the warm embrace of hospitality, smell the aromas on the streets, feel the bumps on the roads, taste the foods and the Chai – not to mention, jostle with the movements in the trains through the very descriptive tales.

    It’s almost impossible to comprehend that we could all live the same experiences, albeit separately and yet, they all bind us together as Taj Mahal & Tea does.
