Book 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
