    Nine Lives: in Search of the Sacred in Modern India is a 2009 travel book by William Dalrymple.

    Dalrymple's seventh book is about the lives of nine Indians, a Buddhist monk, a Jain nun, a lady from a middle-class family in Calcutta, a prison warden from Kerala, an illiterate goat herd from Rajasthan, and a devadasi among others, as seen during during his Indian travels. The book explores the lives of nine such people, each of whom represent a different religious path in nine chapters.

    * The nun's tale.
    * The dancer of Kannur.
    * The Daughter of Yellamma.
    * The singer of epics.
    * The red fairy.
    * The monks tale.
    * The maker of idols.
    * The lady twilight.
    * The song of the blind minstrel.

    The book was published by Bloomsbury to great acclaim, The Observer remarking that it "ranks with the very finest travel writing". On publication it went to the number one slot on the Indian non-fiction section best seller list. Hirsh Sawhney, writing in The Guardian, admires the book's 'awareness of the world's innate cosmopolitanism' and 'remarkably diverse array of characters'.
