Antarctica, a land of mystery and wonders,
is the Earth’s last great wilderness. Fifty
million years ago, it had evergreen forests
with many types of animals and plants.
Today, the continent is a white desert and
known to be the coldest, driest, stormiest,
windiest, and the most inaccessible place
in the world. It is a continent of extremes.
Nearly six months of continuous day, six
Months of continuous night, a lowest
temperature of-89.6 C, and winds that
reach a speed of 190 km per hour during
blizzards, make this continent a unique
place. This no-man’s continent has nearly
ninety per cent of the world’s freshwater
deposit in the from of ice. If the ice is
allowed to melt, the Earth’s sea-level will
rise by several metres thus submerging
a major part of the Earth. India’s journey
to this remote, isolated and extreme
continent began in search of knowledge
and with a desire to unravel its mystery.
Antarctica: India’s Journey to the Frozen
Continent is about a journey, a mission,
an initiative, a challenge, an adventure, a
dream, and finally, about establishing the
scientific capability of India in the world.
This book not only describes the beauty of
this enigmatic continent and origin of
India’s Antarctic venture but also gives us
an account of the first-hand experiences
of two different persons: one, a leader
and the founder of India’s Antarctic
programme and the other, a research
scholar who undertook his maiden
journey to this continent.
