About the Author
Hergé (Georges Remi) was born in Brussels in 1907. His pseudonym comes from his initials backwards (R.G., as pronounced in French). Over the course of 54 years he completed 23 albums of The Adventures of Tintin series, which is now considered to be one of the greatest, if not the greatest, comics series of all time. With translations published in over 80 languages, more than 230 million copies sold worldwide and a Hollywood movie to its name, Tintin dominates the Comics and Graphic Novels chart even today. Sadly, Hergé died in 1983, leaving his 24th album, Tintin and Alph-Art, unfinished, but his hero continues to be one of the most iconic characters in both adult and children’s fiction.

Also noticed that Flipkart may give more discount but adds 40-90 bucks for delivery when checking out / buying as default thus reducing the discount - this is fooling people by giving wrong price in the beginning and charging something when going to buy. Not an ethical way to attract customers.
Thank fully, have not seen this behaviour from Amazon and price shown are honest till checkout. Thanks Amazon.
Now, I can afford to fulfill my dream and it is always fresh as morning dew even when you re read it.
More over the creativity by herge is marvelous.the details in illustration , perspective ,etc. Especially the country /place in the background ,where the story is taking place is portrayed to it's true nature.

Herge always did research to some extent about the subjects, places and cultures before writing his another book of Tintin. In this one, it is pleasure to find Indian culture, Indian citiies and the bull in Indian street with which Captain Haddock has fun when they arrive in Delhi. It is also pleasure to see Tibetan culture and monks when they arrive in Tibet in search of the missing friend. Still there is some, not mistake I'd say, but confusion here.
The plane that crashed in Goshain Than, the mountainous range in Nepal, is flying from Patna, India to Kathmadu, the capital of Nepal. Nepal lies between Tibet (China) in north and India in south, east and west. The north side of Nepal and the south of Tibet are covered with snowy high mountains or the Himalayas. There it showed a little bit of culture of Nepal where Captain Haddock eats dried chilli thinking it was fruit. This you get to see around the streets of Kathmandu. The costume worn by kids, porters and people and the architectures are also what you get to see around there. And so far as I'm concerned, Sherpas like Tharkey are the local Nepalese guides for the mountain expedition.
Nepalese (Nepali), the national language, is spoken all around Nepal. When Captain Haddock collides with the porter, he shouts back at him in Indian language (Hindi). Nepali and Hindi share similar phonetics and alphabets as both languages are descended from Sanskrit, the ancient language. Although Hindi is understood there, it is not spoken in daily life. Herge later admitted it as an error.
Never mind ! Tintin is always the greatest fun to read.
Now in my late 20's, I have decided to purchase all the Tintin books so that when my 2 year old is a bit older, I can share the world of Tintin with him :-D
I might be 60 now but I remember reading these as a young boy, the oldest now in my possession, The Calculus Affair, cost me the princely sum of 35p but unfortunately is no longer in great shape but I will never get rid of it.
