About the Book

Narmada : The Eternal River is the outcome of a unique river journey accomplished by persons who traversed the entire Narmada river, a distance of more than a thousand kilometer, right from the Amarkantak to Bay of Cambay. The authors, well-known academicians wrote what they observed though their swimming expedition. The aspects covered in the book are archaeology, history, prehistory, geography, geology and human culture of Narmada Valley.
The present book is a humble step towards introducing the great river which united the two great cultures of India which flourished in Uttarakhand and Dakshinapath more than five thousand years ago. Narmada Valley has a distinct identity of its own. This may be visualized by going through this book.
