Welcome to Bombay, circa 1850!

Meet Deepak Dalal and allow him to take you on a tour of the Sahyadri mountains and Bombay in the mid 19th century.

If you are one of those who loves to travel and also to read, you must have read the novels by Deepak Dalal.

From his first book, Lakshadweep Adventure, (1997), Dalal has taken his readers to a different part of India with every story — a wildlife sanctuary in Ranthambore Adventure; the snow-capped heights of Ladakh in Ladakh Adventure and its sequel, Snow Leopard Adventure; and to the heart of a tribal way of life in Andaman Adventure.

As the names suggest, at the heart of each story is an intriguing adventure surrounding two teenagers, Vikram and Aditya. Hence, the series is also called the Vikramaditya Series.

In May, Dalal will come out with his next story after seven years. It is called Sahyadri Adventure and is set in the Sahyadri mountain range in Maharashtra. The first book is called Anirudh's Dream, while the second is Koleshwar's Secret.
