The Sukraniti - An Old Book
The Sukraniti - An Old Book
Description

About the Book:

Sukraniti occupies an important position in Indian literature, primarily as a work of secular nature, providing much information on the positive background and foundations of Hindu culture and sociology. This 'Treatise on Morals' of the sage Sukracharya was also asserted to be the sole authoritative text-book on political science which should be used by kings and statesmen. For the historian it provides ample data on the social, economic and political life of the times. Besides, it is a mine of information on geography, climate and soils, meteorology, geology, flora and fauna, ethnology, architectonics, mineralogy, metallurgy, botany, zoology, etc.

The present translation of Sukraniti by Prof. Benoy Kumar Sarkar fulfils the long-left need of scholars interested in the subject. The book is divided into five chapters of which the first three deal with the duties of the princes, the functions of the crown prince and other state officials, and general rules of morality. The fourth chapter, divided into seven sections, discusses the characteristics of friends, treasure, arts and sciences, social customs and institutions, the king's functions, fortresses and the army. The last chapter spells out the rules of morality laid down in the Sastras for the welfare of the State and the people. An index to important Sanskrit words in Sukraniti and an English index have further enhanced the value of the book.

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!

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. ;-)
