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.

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
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
