Foreward : Cosmonaut Rakesh Sharma
This book, over eight years in the making, is a dramatic photo exploration of the Indian subcontinent from the air. The breathtaking visuals – many of them taken from over 30,000 feet from the cockpit of MiG fighter planes, and others from AN-32 aircraft and choppers – are a poetic mosaic of the stunning variety of India’s landscape, from ocean to sky.
A visual feast unlike any attempted before, the book extends from the southern tip of the Andaman Islands to the northernmost point on the Siachen Glacier. It brings alive the relentless beauty of nature’s handiwork together with human embellishments over the ages.

In 1992 she became the first woman in India to fly with the Indian Air Force’s fighter fleet as the principal still photographer during the shooting of the IAF’s history. Her pioneering aerial images of the Siachen and Karakoram regions have found expression in various publications and she has produced more than fifty documentaries under the KaleidoIndia banner in the last 15 years.
