Description
Foreword

Kautilya's 'Arthasastra' is one of the greatest works of Ancient India.It is full of a great deal of information about Ancient India,much of which is still relevant.The work contains a number of technical terms which are somewhat obscure today.That is why this project was undertaken.In this Project, the authors were ably assisted by Sm.Shomosree Roy Chaudhury Project Assistant,DSA Sanskrit,for which the authors are grateful to her.WE hope this work will be of use to scholars.

Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
