Monuments of India (Vol. 1): Delhi, Agra, Khajuraho, Jaipur (The Golden Ring)
Monuments of India (Vol. 1): Delhi, Agra, Khajuraho, Jaipur (The Golden Ring)
Description
About the Book:

India's monuments are not mere stone structures, or testimonials, or even memorials of a past, their strength lying just in some kind of structural hugeness or architectural perfection. They are rather an inseparable part of India's great creative tradition, an outcome of her thought, experience and technical skill, a reflection of her faith and aspirations, an embodiment of her vision and conceptualisations, an evidence of her all embracing outlook and a wider, broader and more liberal life-style, a witness of the journey of a great creative genius across a passage of over three thousand years, and a manifestation of a great mind, glorious past and a magnificent people. The monuments of India are endowed with an intrinsic meaning besides what they externally convey.

'Monuments of India' seeks to interpret a monument in its totality, in most of the contexts and with all its meaning. Its spectacular aspect is as strong as its endeavour to reveal to view a monument's aesthetic beauty and its essential intrinsic meaning. It seeks to see in a monument its timelessness, the quality to endure beyond time, and its divine power to perpetually delight.

Monuments of India' has not any of its parameters, or its own angles, or even its own diction to define or delineate a monument. It endeavours to read a monument's own diction, see from its own angle and asses its magnitudiousness by its own parameters. Its vision of Taj is shere poetry, as Taj is a poem, a song, an elegy composed in marble, its interpretation of Khajuraho sculptures and building structures of Fatehpur Sikri is thought provoking as they were created by a mind that thought in a special way, and its depiction of forts for they were built for defense needs and their aesthetic beauty only mirrored their creators' taste.

The 1st volume of 'Monuments of India', with its almost 170 photographs and comprehensive, though somewhat condensed, text, is an effort to see the monuments of Delhi, Agra, Fatehpur Sikri, Khajuraho, Jaipur and Amber in their fulness. It visualises their spectacular and aesthetic beauty, tried to assess their structural and architectural worth, finds their various related contexts and interprets their intrinsic meaning. 'Monuments of India' is a better vision of India's monuments.

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
