"I travel, therefore I am - apologies to Descartes for twisting his noble thought." This is how M.P. Prabhakaran explains his passion for travel. In terms of academic qualifications, he has a Ph. D. in Political Science from a prestigious university in America. But his greatest learning experience came not from academe, he insists. It came from his frequent travels around the world. He shares that experience with the readers through the pages of this book. He introduces them to the geopolitical, historical and cultural landscapes of various countries stretching from Argentina to China. He narrates in fine English prose the scenic beauty of some of the places he visited and personal stories of people he met. In the course of interacting with those people, he also projects among them the real image of India - the image of a country which, in spite of being multi-religious, multiethnic and multicultural, has remained intact as one political entity and become the most vibrant democracy in the world. The book is a page-turner.
