      ‘Letters to Gauri’ is a book written by M. V. Kamath, an Indian writer. Gauri is the grand-daughter of the writer. This book consists of the letters written by M.

      V. Kamath to Gauri. In this book, there are 84 letters written by M. V.

      Kamath. Gauri is a teenager studying in school. In his letters, the author is trying to enlighten her on such subjects as our national anthem, how to draw maps or how the great temples came to be built etc. In a series of letters written to Gauri, he covers a large number of subjects in a very scholarly way.

      These letters are not sentimental letters and are not like any other typical letter written by a grand-father to his grand-daughter. These letters contain in them information and knowledge. In these letters, you can find wit, wisdom and very valuable information in a way which is easily understandable by a teenager. I found this book a very valuable one.

      The letters are filled with information and it is good to read it. M. V. Kamath has done a good job in writing these letters and in making a book out of it.

      This book is extremely valuable for all students.

      • The book covers a wide variety of subjects out of which some are national anthem, old names of India, ancient travelers in India, uncertainties of travel in the ancient times, art of cartography, early Indian cosmology, concept of God, the Indian epics, scientific view on evolution, origin of man and animal life, rise of intellectuals and religions in ancient Inida, Indian saints, ancient India’s contribution to science and medicine etc. It is a point to be noted that sentiment is missing in the letters. Gauri is studying in a far-off school and M.

        V. Kamath feels that she needs guidance

        and help. He feels that she needs knowledge and information on various subjects. Gauri welcomes these letters which are nothing but treasure-houses of information and knowledge.

        Gauri, who is thirsty for knowledge, finds that her thirst for knowledge is quenched upon reading these letters. In my opinion, this is an unusual and excellent book. This is a book worthy to be read. When I was reading the book, I felt that the author was writing the letters to me.

        The book gives you a lot of knowledge and it is ideal for all those who are thirsty for knowledge. I rate this book full 10 points.
