Description
Introduction

The book Profiles in Excellence - 2, in the series A Vision Of India features a few more of the many famous Indians who have achieved great heights in their respective spheres of activity.

The book captures the genius of twenty-two men and women who have made their mark in varied fields such as sports, arts, literature, sciences, industry, etc. An attempt has been made to acquaint readers with their lives, works, thoughts and achievements and their contributions to society at large.

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 planed with the goal of unveiling India’s modern 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.

Join us in this book, Profiles in Excellence, where we profile twenty-two inspiring Indians who have made us proud. “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 began our voyage of discovery here. This book is a part of our on-going series, A Vision of India.
