About the Book: 

Travelling across North East India can be both exciting and challenging. The verdant landscapes and the cultural diversity captivate visitors to no end while the lack of communication facilities and insurgency could be a real challenge to those travelling in the region. On the Grass Trail takes you on an exciting journey across the high mountains, valleys and river-plains of the North Eastern states of Manipur and Arunachal Pradesh while providing insights into the historical, cultural and socio-political background of the region. The travails of the author’s journey to the remotest parts of North East India, overcoming adversities and uncertainties, will keep the reader engrossed and riveted to the narrative.
The Andaman and Nicobar Islands have an irresistible charm that beckons travellers from across the world. The firsthand account on the exquisite charm of the islands, its chequered past, the life and struggle of the islanders, the status of native tribes and their uncertain future make this book a compelling read


About the Author: 

N V Nair is a former scientist of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), currently living in Coimbatore. A geneticist by profession, he has travelled widely across the country in connection with the documentation and conservation of bio-resources related to sugarcane. These travels provided him with the opportunity to explore the remotest and most inaccessible parts of the country and experience the life beyond cities and the countryside. The ethnic and cultural diversity existing in the country and its historical past always interested him, and the present book is based on his experiences in North East India and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands during these visits.
