Lovely Landscapes

 " Some travellers have described India as a land of princes and palaces, of elephants, snakes and tigers. Admittedly, it has all these things, but they constitute only a part of the big picture that is India. The real India comprises broad fields, innumerable villages and many cities with well-equipped factories and buildings and the amenities of modern life."
Well, What is new in this, perhaps you will think. This was written in 1960 in a book published by the publications division, Government Of India in the introduction of the country.
Here are some lovely landscapes representing the geographical diversity of India. The name of the photographers are not given. The photolines are from the book only. More things from the book later.
