New Travelouge Delivers an Intimate and humorous, look at life in Indonesia in, ‘JOURNEYS WITH THE CATERPILLAR: TRAVELLING THROUGH THE ISLANDS OF FLORES AND SUMBA, INDONESIA’.
Shivaji Das's ‘Journeys with the caterpillar: Travelling through the islands of Flores and Sumba, Indonesia' brings a first-hand look to the beauty that can be found in the midst of the grinding poverty that is sometime evident in these islands.
“The crowd lined the street, shoulder to shoulder. Fathers held young boys high, the older children climbing trees for better views. The pressure of the crowd built behind me, while before us, an opening formed in the crowd. About fifteen men assembled around a tied buffalo: the sacrifices were about to begin.”
The aforementioned is the style of writing Das uses to bring to life his, ‘JOURNEYS WITH THE CATERPILLAR: TRAVELLING THROUGH THE ISLANDS OF FLORES AND SUMBA, INDONESIA’.
Reminiscent of the works of Paul Theroux and Elizabeth Gilbert, Shivaji Das' vivid description of his journey through Indonesia is presented with beautiful photographs about the landscape and people. These photographs have been exhibited in galleries and photo festivals worldwide. ‘JOURNEYS WITH THE CATERPILLAR’, is a fresh new approach that brings an entirely new perspective to travel books.
