Culture India (Philosophy, Religion, Arts, Literature, Society)
Description
From the Jacket:
India's culture is broad and many-sided and, though encyclopaedic works are available on the subject, no book of a medium size has been there for the general intelligent reader. The present work was planned and published several years ago during the Tagore Centenary Year, which made a part of the Tagore Centenary Volume, consisting of another work on Rabindra Nath Tagore.

Published under the 'Woolner Indological Series' of the famous V.V. Research Institute, Hoshiarpur, Pb., with a foreword by then Minister of Education, Govt. of India, Prof. Humayun Kabir - and edited by Mahendra Kulasrestha, English Editor of the Institute at the time- it had contributions on most aspects of Indian culture by well known authorities in their respective areas. It formed a balanced and readable compendium on the hoary subject for the general reader, and was much commended for the reason. Several universities in America accepted it as suggested reading.

It is being revived for the modern reader whose need of knowing about various aspects of Indian culture is increasing every passing day.

INDIA BOOK VARSITY provides the best of philosophy, religion, arts and history of the most ancient, essentially thought-oriented, secular-democratic, federative and peace-loving community and culture-India-for the new generation now spread all over the world, looking for their roots, identity and seeking authentic knowledge about it.

This is in part a revival of already published works of great quality by Western scholars over a century ago, thoroughly edited, keeping in view the mindset and requirements of the present-day fast progressing youth, and the globalisation of life in all its aspects.

Any ideas and suggestions, as well as support, would be welcome

The Series-Editor, Mahendra Kulasrestha, has been the first editor of the well known Orient Paperbacks has been associated with the Bharatiya Vidya Bhawan, Mumbai, V. Vedic Research Inst,. Hoshiarpur, Pb.; Vision Books; Hind Pocket Books; Rajpal and Sons; Indira Gandhi Memorial Trust; HUDCO; DDA (Slum Wing); SEWA Delhi, etc. He has planned and edited the useful Public Concerns Series, and been Consultant Editor of International Books Update.

His books include: Japan-An Enigma, An Anthology of Japanese Literature in Hindi, Tagore Centenary Volume, The Genius of Tagore, Aspects of Indian Culture, World Poetry Number of a Hindi Literary Magazine, An Anthology of Hindi Short Stories, Existence and Other Poems (English translations of Amrita Pritam's poems), A study of 14 Western philosophers in Hindi, etc.

Testimonials
I've been happy with prior purchases from this site!
Priya, USA
Thank you. You are providing an excellent and unique service.
Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
