Andaman & Nicobar Islands, is a distant holiday destination. An Indian Union Territory, famously known as 'Kalapani' in the earlier days. These Islands are with full of vegetation, untouched sea, beaches, coral reefs, mangrove plantation, mud volcanoes, water sports, historical memorial 'Cellular Jail' and many other attractions which attract many Indian and foreign tourists. The book is a sincere effort to describe the beauty of India's one of the most magnificent holiday destinations. It also cater about the life, recreation, foods, occupation of Islanders. The book also describes the only volcano of India, 'Barren Island' and few unique species of flora and fauna. This book is written with author's personal experience of the place from his childhood and anecdotes gathered from his grandparents and surrounding people and elders who had migrated from mainland India in earlier days before and after Independence. 


Review: 


If Kerala is referred to as God's own country, then Andaman and Nicobar Islands can truly be called as a paradise. What made me say so? Did I visit the place? No. The book I read helped me paint a visual picture of what these islands would look like. 


Andaman and Nicobar Islands - throughout my childhood, I've known that these two islands are part of India. I never got a chance to know more about them. Reading this book was educative enough. I felt satisfied reading this book. 


The book begins with a few beautiful pictures which depicts the awesome view and marvels that these islands are blessed with. And then from the next chapter onwards starts the journey to Andaman and Nicobar islands. The author gives a quick introduction to the place before going into the details. He presents to you one place at a time and talks about its geographical location, the best spots to visit, and many more things. 


The narration is engaging and informative. You will paint a mental picture about the place in your mind. The simple and lucid language with an engaging narration makes you hook on to this book. 


I, personally, loved this book so much that I am surely trying to write out something on similar basis on my state - Goa. This book has inspired me to write about Goa. 


I rate: 
Cover: 3/5 

I rate 'Andaman and Nicobar Islands' with 4/5 stars.

You can buy your copies of this exciting book on Amazon.
