China, Xinjiang, Tibet, Turfan, Llasa – Heaven's Heaven Vikram Seth

Lake Heaven Lake is a travel book. The description is both suitable and restrictive. It is worth considering the notion that traveling is just one of the ways of collecting the nostalgia collection for future regurgitation. However, the author's Chinese journey – initially west-east and then north-south in the early 1980s – this description of the species did not necessarily add potential fuel to the memorable fire of the future.

It was hardly common for a person to travel alone in China, not to mention Qingha or, more unlikely, to leave Tibet to Nepal. But that was exactly what Vikram Seth did, and to add the icing to the access cake he had a favorite way of transport. Much of this is the mechanics and logistics of travel that provides the contents of the book.

Vikram Seth was a student in China, so the goal was to have less-visited parts of the country And finally to India to reunite for years with college and family. He had a language without which he was forced to bureaucracy, because he would have forced bureaucracy, certainly did not achieve his purpose. Near the beginning of the book, the author has visited Turfan in East China. The other end of the axis beginning in Tibet must be one of the strangest places in the world. He fried in the summer and freezes in winter, in the middle of a steep desert, but lives in a very successful agriculture. By visiting the ancient irrigation irrigation channels that bring water from distant hills, the author swims unwarranted at the advice of his council. The author is in difficulty. And this seems to be a lot of topics coming back from the "Heaven Lake" story. A particular first person appears to intend to enforce a fairly blind individuality in the context of a society that respects compliance and excludes any distinction that implies differences. In a conflict that is fundamentally different, we present a travel catalog that does not seem to show much about the potential experiences of the country through which it travels. Thus, most of the book deals with the process of travel rather than its experience.

However, Heaven Lake is worth reading. Next to Turfan, we visit Urumkyt and the Altitude Lake, which gives the title the book. The tour runs to Xianba, Lanzhou, Dunhuang, then Qinghai to Tibet and especially Llasa. It occupies most of the city in the text and highlights that the visit is largely at the heart of the author's consideration.

We meet some interesting people along the way, but largely bureaucrats, executives or officials associate the author's travel conditions. Given the experience of Vikram Seth in the country, here there seems to be a missed opportunity for more people to embroider the text with more interesting and more durable details than repetitive travel problems.

The lake is perhaps a unique account of travel that some contemporary travelers would have thought, not to mention. Today, he still presents an interesting account of a personal challenge but offers too little contemporary experience to motivate the general reader to stay on board.
