Volume 2 (Brahma’s Creation) aims at demystifying and understanding what is one of the most challenging areas of the country. The Great Himalayan Wall that separates India from Tibet culminates in Arunachal Pradesh on its eastern extremity. With heights extending up to 23,000 ft, this is a land of vast rocky expanses, glaciers and icy rivers.
The upper reaches dominated by Lamaistic Buddhism give way to the many shades of tribal animism in the middle zone and Theravada Buddhism and Hinduism in the foothills. The area is drained by one of the world’s most majestic river systems – the Brahmaputra.
