Of the thirty-three publications of Umaprasad, about thirty document his travel experiences and hence he can be regarded as primarily a travel writings are available in print, all of them titled Vraman Sangi(Travel Companion).

She is a creative writer, critic and translator and her articles, poems, short stories and translations have been published in journals of distinction in India and abroad.

From the jacket

Manimahesh is a prose text that represented a different genre and travelogues have always drawn readers, as they generally combine documentary data, topical information and autobiographical impressions. The first hand experience of the traveller on the trek is of immense benefit to the intending traveller and if the traveller happens to be Umaprasad, it becomes a two-in-one journey, a conducted trek through the Himalayas and an intellectual bonanza of facts, figures and philosophic discourse. In Manimahesh we find very interesting descriptions of the Himalayan hill tribes, especially a description of the Gaddis and the Kinnors and Kinnoris. This book has an immense value as resource material for researchers, anthropologists, Himalayan trekkers and casual readers.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
