Description

About the Author

 

There are a number of books in English and Indian languages on ancient India but there is something unique about this book. The learned author due to his knowledge of Sanskrit and study of Vedic and Pauranic texts in original has given a comprehensive narration and analysis of ancient Indian concept of administration, justice, education, finance, faith, republicans and monarchies, their standard and culture, art, literature, social customs, ancient Indian penology, criminology, law and order, organization of police force, inherent unity in thought and culture from Vedic period till date and the science of astrology, mathematics, astronomy. This book has been further enriched by detailed description of the system of village councils, panchayat raj, local self government and democracy always at the base of monarchies also. Due to his knowledge of Pali the author has drawn a good deal from inscriptions and engraved proclamations. To him ancient India covers the period upto 1100-1200 A. D. from Vedic period but factually upto the end of the rule of Harsh Vardhan (606-647).

 

This publication not only provide revealing pages of ancient Indian history, also a lucid and interesting reading.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
