Glimpses of Kerala Culture
Glimpses of Kerala Culture
Description
Back of the Book

“The book is usefully organized in three sections the first discussing the Dravidian of Non- Vedic Stream, and the third the synthesis of the two. The result is a delightful, instructive and yet highly readable volume which will afford hours of pleasure and education to anyone seeking an in-depth appreciation of Kerala culture. I commend it unreservedly to the discerning reader.”

 

About the Book

Glimpses of Kerala Culture offers an impressive and highly readable introduction to the carious art forms of the rich and ancient culture of Kerala.

The book gives profound and erudite insights into the four defined purposes of Hindu life, the origins and nature of dance forms of Kerala and its unique martial arts.

The book is divided into three parts, dealing with the Dravidian or the Non-Vedic Stream of civilization, the Vedic or the Aryan Stream, and the colours of the ‘United Stream’.

Glimpses of Kerala Culture provides a wealth of information while delineating various art forms and reflecting on a host of cultural aspects. The colorus of Kerala come alive in the vibrant mosaic of Indian heritage. The reader is amply rewarded and establishes an easy communion with Kerala.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
