A Vision of India the Country
A Vision of India the Country
Description
Introduction

There has been a long-felt need for attractive and information books about modern day India. Books that are neither textbooks nor encyclopaedias, but are specifically attuned to the visual and reader-friendly requirements of the contemporary child.

A Vision Of India has been conceived as a continuing series, planned with the purpose of unveiling India’s modern profile for young readers. The individual volumes will then be compiled into a unique compendium on India. The information has been presented in the form of wide-ranging questions and answers, supported by colourful and accurate illustrations. The textual style has been kept simple but incorporates a wealth of interesting and varied knowledge.

This first book, A Vision of India Book 1-The Country, acquaints the reader with India as a country, its physical setting and political framework, its variety of people, their languages and scripts, national symbols and holidays, as well as other related information.

This series, dealing with post-independence India and the national identity, is perceived as a valuable addition to schools and libraries, as well as to the bookshelf of every child who is proud to be a citizen of India.

Back of the Book

Which tributary of the Indus river is believed to flow underground Why is the sand of Lakshadweep pure white?

Which is India’s largest tribal group? These are just a few of the many fascinating questions to which you will find answers in this book - The Country. Colourful illustrations enhance the wide-ranging information.

“I am an Indian and India is my country” - saying these words is not enough. Nationalism is much more than mere words. We must know the country we live in thoroughly. So let us begin our voyage of discovery here. This book is a part of our on-going series, A Vision of India.

Testimonials

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!
Charles (Rudra)
I just wanted to say that this is I think my 3rd (big) order from you, and the last two times I received immaculate service, the books arrived well and it has been a very pleasant experience. Just wanted to say thanks for your efficient service.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
