In this photographic alphabet, the author introduces young readers to some of the customs, religions and cultures - both ancient and modern - that make up this fast-developing country.

Dd is for Dhobi ghat, an open-air laundry near the river bank, where dhobis - washermen and women - bring all the town's dirty clothes to wash and spread out to dry.
Ee is for Eid, two of the year's most important Islamic celebrations. Eid-Ul-Fitre, marks the end of Ramadan, the month of fasting, and Eid-Ul-Addha is celebrated after Hajj, the pilgrimage to Mecca. Girls give each other bangles and decorate their hands with henna. Families feast together, give presents, and say special prayers at the mosque to celebrate.
