India Booked | Travelling Tales of Tibet

‘The ‘Other’ Shangri-La: Journeys through the Sino-Tibetan frontier in Sichuan’ is a narrative  travelogue based on author Shivaji Das and his wife’s journey which explores the region’s history  and the lives and cultures of the people inhabiting these remote lands in detail. 

In this episode of India Booked, Shivaji Das and Yolanda Yu recount their journey to Tibet as writers  and more significantly as travellers, embellishing it with quirky incidents and fascinating anecdotes.  

The travel enthusiasts and companions share with Ayushi Mona the highlight of their trip with  surprisingly different approaches, one recounting how they got entangled in the unfolding of a love  triangle, while the other underlines the realities of them travelling on rugged roads fraught with  danger.  

The podcast narrates the adventures of travelling into lands far away, the edge of touring as a  couple, the culture and habits of migration amongst the Tibetans and the dangerous journeys they  undertake that “make men out of boys”, as Shivaji puts it. 

Tune in to hear them discuss elements of nature that are worth going back to and draw parallels  between the two diverse cultures of India and China. This episode is for writers and travellers alike,  as it explores the routines they follow as writers and the thrills they experience as travellers on a  journey!
