Description of this Book

3,000 years ago, deep inside the forests of India, a great 'thought- revolution' was brewing. In those forest labs, the brightest scientist-philosophers contemplated the universe and reflected upon the already-ancient texts called the Vedas, gaining some startling insights into questions that we still have no watertight answers to, like: * What is the universe made of? *How do I know I'm looking at a tree when I see one? *Who am I? My body, my mind, my intelligence, my emotions, or NOTA? And where did they put those explosive findings? In a sprawling body of goose-bumpy, thought-provoking and fascinating oral literature called the Upanishads! Intimidated? Don't be! For this joyful, fun guide to some of India's most enduring and secular wisdoms, reinterpreted for first-time explorers by author Roopa Pai, is guaranteed to keep you turning the pages. Why haven't you read it yet?

Author's Bio

Roopa Pai is a computer engineer who always knew she was going to write for children. She is the author of Taranauts, India's first fantasy adventure series for children, and has several other published books to her credit. To make a living, she brings together three other loves - history, working with young people, and her home town Bangalore - in her day job as a guide with Bangalore Walks, a history and heritage walks and tours company. She is currently hard at work trying to earn the right to this epitaph: She was often content.
