Praise for this book

<p>With this visual feast that defines the lifestyle, customs and heritage of remote North-Eastern mountainscapes, Anu Malhtora argues that the ancient and pristine tribal way of life, in pace with the earth’s timeless cycles, may offer solutions for modern living to escape mindless development. Warriors and shamans, hunters and weavers, mothers and wives—all find place in this extraordinary narrative that explores how cultures and customs are polluted by invasion, repopulation, urbanisation, and migration. <em>Soul Survivors</em> is a record of the relics, festivals, worship, customs, manners, food, and topography of a&nbsp;forgotten India that is slowly opening itself up to the world.</p> <p><em>Soul Survivors</em> is a compassionate tour de force, with insights describing living cultures that can teach us how to lead better lives.</p> <p><strong>Ravi Shankar Etteth</strong><em>, Author</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Anu Malhotra’s journey into the lives and complex philosophies of ancient communities reinforces the crying need to restore those fundamental values and ethos of humankind that once defined living in harmony with the natural environment, an inherited legacy that has been rudely brutalised by unthinking, random and exploitative ‘modernisation’. There is much to learn from these peoples’, much to reintroduce into our insular lives, much to reinvent for changed times from tried and tested philosophies and traditions. We need more ‘Anu Malhotras’ to explore the true and living wealth of our planet.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Malvika Singh</strong>, <em>Publisher &amp; Editor, Seminar</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Pictures that will haunt me long after I’ve gone home, portraits that will stay with me in my moments of silence and meditation, photographs that have successfully glimpsed into the innermost intimacies after piercing through but retaining the outermost shells.</p> <p><strong>Kishore Singh</strong>, <em>Art Crtic &amp; Writer</em></p>
