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.

Testimonials

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.

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.
Shashi
I'm so proud of your Company, it's so rare to have a good service after sales.... I will recommend you to all my friends.

I am a repeat customer of your store. I have bought several items from you and like the quality and service. Please keep up the good work of providing Puranas and Vedas.
Raghavan, USA
