This volume deals primarily with methodology, and is pioneering effort in problem-oriented research. Most meaningfully, cogently and in a very readable style in produces a broad theoretical basis for the comprehension of archaeological material- within the framework of anthropology for anthropology for the first time-bearing upon Indian Civilization. It makes a timely, in fact a long overdue, plea for broad contextual issues raising crucial questions that help construct a total picture of the life of early peoples of India. It has produced a model for cultural evolution in South Asia.

I am so pleased! the Shawl arrived today - it had been held up in customs, sliced open, inspected and finally reached me today. There was no damage to the shawl and it is JUST PERFECT! Thank you so much. I have waited a long time for this shawl and I AM VERY PLEASED. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Barrie, Ontario
I fall in love with Exotic India last year when I found accidentally a beautiful blue kaftan with a little printed elephant on it. Since then I am a fan of this lovely place and I am sure that I will be a lifetime. I feel that my relation with Exotic India is special because I like every article, they are unique, made with passion and each piece relates a magical, mythical story. I want to thank you for your promptitude by shipping so fast my order, it arrived directly from India to Romania (Transylvania) on the fourth day after I have set my order. I did not expect it so soon, my heart was filled with joy by such an amazing surprise. I appreciated it! I wish all the joy and beauty you bring to me turn back to you!
Noemi
I would like to thank Exotic India for the very superior packaging and shipment of my order. Much appreciated! The order arrived very quickly. Many thanks!! I will always check Exotic India first for books in the future.
Teresa, USA
Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)
Walter
I really found this site to be very well designed, and the number of items amazing. From my careful inspection of the high resolution photos, the quality of work appears to be outstanding.
Sanjay, USA
The statue was delivered today. It is exceedingly beautiful. My thanks to the creator of the statue for such a lovely idol and to yourselves for the great service.
