“[...] what a wonderful book and so poetically written. [...] I would surely recommend it to any one who wants to know more of India.” —Jasmine D'Costa, Curry is Thicker than Water
"Ward [...] combines a journalist’s eye for detail with an unapologetic passion for India, and the result is a splendidly personal account of the country’s transformation of her philosophy of life (and death). Ward’s experiences center around Yoga and spirituality, but her uplifting, informative tales will appeal to Indophiles of all stripes." —Niranjana Iyer, Brown Paper blog
"“Song of India” gives you a deeper look at India than many of the other similar stories on the market today. [...] If you need inspiration to visit the land of bindis and curry, this book will get you there." —Christine Garvin, Living Holistically
