Did ancient India witness the Great Flood? Why did the Buddha give his first sermon at Sarnath? How did the Europeans map India?

Combining scholarship with sparkling wit, Sanjeev Sanyal sets out to explore how India's history was shaped by its geography--answering questions you may have never thought to ask. Moving from geological and genetic origins to present-day Gurgaon, Land of the Seven Rivers is riveting, wry and full of surprises.
