Description

About the Author

H Kumar Vyas has had a long and fruitful association with the National Institute of Design (NID) spanning a period of thirty years. He had his early training as an industrial designer at the Central School of Art and Design, in Britain, where he subsequently worked as a professional designer for over five years. Prof. Vyas joined the NID in 1962 to start its Faculty of Industrial Design and to commence programmes directed towards training the first cadre of Indian Industrial designers.

Since 1977 Prof. Vyas has been actively engaged in acquainting those he terms as 'non-designers' with the concepts of design and design thinking. The Training Kit Design and Environment specially prepared for this purpose comprises an introductory manual and a series of short films which incidentally have been telecast on the National Educational Programme.

The last position Prof. Vyas held at the NID was as Professor, Design Research Chair. The present book is the outcome of one of the projects completed during this period.

Testimonials

I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Love the website and the breadth of selection. Thanks for assembling such a great collection of art and sculpture.
Richard, USA
Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.
Walter
Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.
Gregory, USA
Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.
Shankar, UK
The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
