Description

About the Book:

This book entitled Socio-Economic Ideas in Ancient Indian Literature brings out the great richness of the ancient Indian literature and also demonstrates the relevance of the Indian classical thoughts for the contemporary challenges of life. It contains many innovative suggestions for realising maximum human welfare in the midst of the present-day social, cultural and the political setting. It has compiled, at one place, the excerpts from the different sources of the Indian classical literature, dealing with the diverse subjects such as Agriculture, Animals, Plants, Forest and Gardens, Food and Drinks, Education and Environment. Two interesting themes of contemporary relevance, viz. Corruption such as Krsiparasara, Vrksayurveda etc. have also been quoted. The Sanskrit quotations are drawn from diverse sources such as Vedas, Puranas, Upanisads, Smrtis, and literary compositions. The various chapters contain brief discussion of the themes and translations of the Sanskrit quotations in English.

The style of presentation in the volume is very lucid and communicative. The book is commended both to the scholars and to the students of the Indian classical literature.

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
