Description

Introduction

 

The book PROFILES IN EXCELLENCE, in the series A VISION OF INDIA, features a few of the many eminent Indians who have made their mark in various fields such as the performing arts, sports, science, industry, literature and others. The book is an attempt to acquaint readers with contemporary Indians and their contributions to the country.

 

The book captures the genius of sports people like Kapil Dev, Viswanathan Anand, and P.T. Usha; scientists like Homi Bhabha and Vikram Sarabhai; film-makers like Satyajit Ray, and many other personalities from varied walks of life. All of them have achieved great heights in their fields and have made India proud.

 

With each profile, there is a section titled ‘DO YOU KNOW?’ which provides additional information to the reader in the related fields - a novel combination of knowledge and stimulation.

 

A VISION OF INDIA has been conceived as a continuing series. The books have been planned with the goal of unveiling India’s modem profile to young readers. The information is presented in a style that is simple and attractive, using visuals and language that would appeal to the young mind. The books will be a valuable addition to school libraries, as well as to the bookshelf of every child who is proud to be a citizen of India.

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.

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
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
The statue has arrived today. It so beautiful, lots of details. I am very happy and will order from you shop again.
Ekaterina, Canada.
I love your company and have been buying a variety of wonderful items from you for many years! Keep up the good work!
