The book covers stunning rock sites in the Telangana region. It is authored by Mr. Narendra Luther, a writer, former civil servant, author and columnist who is an authority on the history and culture of the erstwhile state of Hyderabad and President of the Society to Save Rocks.
“Marvels of Nature” is a visual treat of the 2,500 million-years-old Natural Heritage consisting of spectacular granite formations that define the landscape of the Deccan Plateau. Besides contributing to the ecosystem by feeding lakes and providing a special habitat for flora and fauna, the rocks greatly add to the aesthetics of our City. The book shows the antiquity of Rocks, the speciality of Deccan granites, their integration into everyday life and finally the urgent need to preserve these irreplaceable sculptures of Nature for future generations. This publication was made possible with technical inputs and data from multi-disciplinary teams with eye-catching photographs taken by professionals and members of the Society.
“Marvels of Nature” is definitely a must-have for every home not just to appreciate the sheer beauty of rocks but to comprehend the intrinsic connection between human life and all of Nature - to save Man, we have no choice but to focus on saving Nature and saving rocks is a big part of this equation. Rock sites are healthy lung spaces much needed in the midst of concrete jungles that have sprung up all around us. The rocks lend themselves to adventure sport and family entertainment, being in the midst of urban layouts.
