Description
Preface

101 Daughters of India who Shaped the World, is another title in the series of 101 . . . To select only hundred one women from the world of Great Daughters India has produced is in itself a hard task to perform. It is just an honest attempt to present to the readers an interesting and informative description of some of the remarkable Indian Daughters. The book attempts to portray life and works of the women of different eras and styles. Attempt has been made to include daughter of different ages who had made their marks in their respective fields. Their works are still relevant and proved to be milestones for the coming generations. A very brief sketch of every daughter's life makes the reading interesting and it also gives the historical background of that period. The book also details their struggle and achievement in life and how they overcame and conquered obstacles and hardships to pursue their passions.

Great daughter like Jhansi Ki Rani, Laxmibai, Arundhati Roy, Chand Bibi, Kalpana Chawla, Indira Gandhi or Teejan Bai present a kaleidoscopic view of different fields. On one hand, where Rani Laxmibai portrays beginning of the freedom struggle, on the other hand, Kalpana Chawla always loved stars and became one herself. And others give the picturesque scenario of changing faces of historic/modern India. This book tries to present the best-known works of the women from varied fields. Artists with their distinct styles and crafts give the book a variation in reading which will keep the interest of the readers intact till the end.

Here, it is important to mention that the book does not go into the intricacy of the artworks and the field adopted by the different women of various generations. It does not go either in giving the critical analysis of the merits and demerits of their work. I, however, does mention the phases and periods and the times of those works. Appreciations and accolades received from different sections of society, either common people of people from high rank or profile have been mentioned in the book in the same vein as the criticism and disapproval of any work received from any quarter.

This book is aimed not only for art lovers but also for genera readers for whom it will open a vast new world of arts which are timeless and monumental in their grandeur. The struggle, these women have gone through in their lives, will prove inspirational for anyone from any walk of life. So, dive deep into this art world to get the gems of life.

Robert, UK

Kileigh
Thanks again Exotic India! Always perfect! Great books, India's wisdom golden peak of knowledge!!!
Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
Steven, USA
Great Website! fast, easy and interesting!
