This is the Official Holiday FM Travel Guide to Delhi, including information from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s Know Before You Go campaign.As you step out of New Delhi airport, it’s hard to figure out what is more overwhelming – the intense heat that immediately washes over you, or the swarms of taxi touts blocking your path.

From here, you can book up a ride to anywhere in New Delhi. You should be on your way in a matter of minutes, which is just enough time to prepare yourself for the heart-exploding chaos of Indian roads. Make sure you have an open mind, and New Delhi is an adventure in waiting.This audiobook is designed to be listened to before you go, on the plane or whilst you are walking around town.

Delirious Delhi: Inside India´s Incredible Capi...

Delhi exists in a kind of quantum state: In Delhi, all things are true at once. When the Big Apple no longer felt big enough, Dave and Jenny moved to a city of 16 million people and, seemingly, twice that many horns honking at once. Delirious Delhi depicts India´s capital as the two experienced it, from office life in the rising tech hubs to the traffic jam philosophy that keeps people sane in the gridlock leading to them. With only their sense of humour as their guide, Dave and Jenny set out to explore a city in which ancient stone monuments compete with glass-clad shopping malls to define the landscape. What follows is a top-to-bottom snapshot of a city in the thick of loud and accelerating change. Anyone new to Delhi will have their understanding of it magnified by this book. And anyone who already knows Delhi will appreciate this candid tribute to a city that´s everything to everyone at the same time. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sanjiv Jhaveri.

In this hour, novelist Erin Morgenstern´s darkly magical novel revolves around a mysterious circus and a contest that pits two young students of magic against each other. Next, Alex Stone is a professional magician with a physics degree. In a new book, Fooling Houdini, he breaks ranks with his fellow magicians, revealing some of the tricks of the trade and their basis in cognitive science. He performs a feat of psychic magic with our radio audience.Then, the last remaining magician´s colony in India -- Kathputli, in Delhi -- is slated to be be bulldozed to make way for shopping malls and high rises. Filmmakers Jim Goldblum and Adam Weber are documenting this thousand-year old tradition of conjuring and illusion before it disappears forever. After that, in traditional cultures, magic can be more than performance -- it can be a way of seing the world and a form of medicine. Philosopher and ecologist David Abram shares lessons from his experiences with shamanic healers. He also performs a little sleight-of-hand in our studio.Following that, historian Deborah Harkness studies the history of alchemy and Elizabethan magic. Her best-selling novels, A Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night involve magical historical manuscripts, time travel, and witches and vampires with very impressive academic credentials. She talks with us about the historical connections between magic and science.And finally, Evolutionary biologist and celebrated (and occasionally reviled) atheist Richard Dawkins attempts to redefine ´´magic´´ as a reality-based, non-supernatural function of the mind.

The White Tiger, Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 382min
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Meet Balram Halwal, the ´White Tiger´: servant, philosopher, entrepreneur, murderer. Over the course of seven nights, by the scattered light of a preposterous chandelier, Balram tells his story.... Born in a village in the dark heart of India, the son of a rickshaw puller, Balram is taken out of school by his family and put to work in a tea shop. As he crushes coal and wipes tables, he nurses a dream of escape, of breaking away from the banks of Mother Ganga, into whose murky depths have seeped the remains of a hundred generations. His big chance comes when a rich village landlord hires him as a chauffeur for his son, his daughter-in-law, and their two Pomeranian dogs. From behind the wheel of a Honda, Balram first sees Delhi. .The city is a revelation. Amid the cockroaches and call centres, the 36,000,004 gods, the slums, the shopping malls and the crippling traffic jams, Balram´s reeducation begins. Caught between his instinct to be a loyal son and servant and his desire to better himself, he learns of a new morality at the heart of a new India. As the other servants flick through the pages of Murder Weekly, Balram begins to see how the tiger might escape his cage. For surely any successful man must spill a little blood on his way to the top. The White Tiger is a tale of two Indias. Balram´s journey from the darkness of village life to the light of entrepreneurial success is utterly amoral, brilliantly irreverent, deeply endearing and altogether unforgettable. 1.
