Travellers from Imperial Russia to India brings to you the story of numerous Russian pioneers whose contribution over generations forms the bedrock of relations between Russia and India.

This anthology is an exposition of a galaxy of Russian nobility, diplomats, doctors, philosophers, artists, researchers and traders spanning a wide period from the fifteenth to the twentieth century. From the arrival of the legendary merchant-traveller Afanasy Nikitin in India in 1467 to the account of Vladimir Khavkin whose anti-cholera vaccine was a life saver in India, the book has it all.

On the seventieth anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Russia and India, the book celebrates the time-tested friendship and multifaceted cooperation between the two countries.
