Shanti Shanti Balagan

In early september 2001 Dorit and Tsur Shezaf took their three daughters (ages 14, 11 and 8) for a year long family tour of India, with no school and no work. They discover a land of marvels, complex, colourful and intoxicating: hidden valleys in the Himalayas, a long journey on camels in Rajasthan, a full moon party in Goa, spiritual supermarkets in Pune and Dharamsala, Israeli colonies in Pushkar and Hampi; from Amritsar to Kochi, from Mahabalipuram to Kolkota and from Varanasi to a short walk around the Anapurna which almost costs them their lives. Shanti Shanti Balagan is a book about Israelis in India, one particular Israeli family in India, and about an India that embraces them all.
