Great Indian Emperors
Great Indian Emperors
Description
In this bumper issue, we have included the stories of three great emperors of ancient India - Ashoka, Samudra Gupta and Harsha. History chronicles innumerable kings who were brave conquerors and valiant soldiers. But Ashoka stands above them all because he is the only one who at the Zenith of his conquests saw th futility of violence and had the courage to renounce it. That is why, H.G.Wells in his 'Short History of the World' says that Ashoka's 'reign for eight and twenty years was one of the brightest interludes in the troubled history of mankind'. When one recalls the 'Glory that was Ind' one first thinks of the golden age of the Guptas. Emperors and empires, India had seen earlier, but the power and the splendour of the Guptas were unique and none in the dynasty strove harder than Samudra Gupta to achieve them. If Harsha is remembered till this day as a great ruler, it is not only because he was a brave military leader, but also because he was a man of noble impulses, a great patron of learning and letters and he had great scholars like Banabhatta, Mayura and Divakara in his court. Banbhatta's 'Harshacharita' gives a detailed account of Harsha's life till he rescues Rajyashri. We know more about the political and economic condition of his times form the account of Hiuen Tsang, who visited India during his reign.

I am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable. I hope you continue to be this good in your helpfulness. I have found books about rare cultural heritage such as Kodava samaj, Dhrupad and other DVDs and CDs in addition to the beautiful sarees I have from your business, actually business is not the right word, but for lack of a word I am using this.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
