The Indian Tricolour
The Indian Tricolour
Description
From the Jacket :

The one national-mascot that stands for and represents a country in the world arena is its National-flag. The Indian Tricolour pays homage to our National flag, the symbol that gives India its unique identity.

This book offers the readers a brief history of flags, their evolution and significance. It traces how our National-flag, Tiranga, came into being, took its present form, and how a young man fought for the right to fly his National-flag every day of the year. Comprehensive and interesting, this extensively researched book also comprises numerous illustrations, rare photographs and fascinating trivia on flags.

It is, undoubtedly, the ultimate, reference book on flags in general, and an authority and guide on the Tiranga in particular.

About the Author :

Lt. Cdr. KV Singh (Retd.) was a commissioned officer, and was in the West Bengal Civil Serice (Executive) as a Deputy Collector and Magistrate before joined the services. He is widely traveled within the country and abroad.

He has authored four books (Quiz India, Our National Flag, Colourful World of Flags and Our Coins) and compiled two (An Insight Into World Religions and Rites and Rituals of Hindus and Muslims of Undivided India) besides contributing articles, stories and poems to national dailies and other periodicals. He has also been an anchor and participant in numerous television programmes.

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!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
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
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
