From the Jacket

The Gita which has been translated into almost all the languages of the world, is one of the finest works of literature produced by man. This book is for the present-day generation who is unable to read it in the original Sanskrit. While elaborating on the spiritual and metaphysical teachings of the Gita, the book analyses some vital social issues in the contemporary context, such as the caste system, the position of women in society, religious tolerance and communal harmony. The salient facts abut India's glorious past have been gleaned from the most authentic sources.
