Description

About the Author

 

There are a number of books in English and Indian languages on ancient India but there is something unique about this book. The learned author due to his knowledge of Sanskrit and study of Vedic and Pauranic texts in original has given a comprehensive narration and analysis of ancient Indian concept of administration, justice, education, finance, faith, republicans and monarchies, their standard and culture, art, literature, social customs, ancient Indian penology, criminology, law and order, organization of police force, inherent unity in thought and culture from Vedic period till date and the science of astrology, mathematics, astronomy. This book has been further enriched by detailed description of the system of village councils, panchayat raj, local self government and democracy always at the base of monarchies also. Due to his knowledge of Pali the author has drawn a good deal from inscriptions and engraved proclamations. To him ancient India covers the period upto 1100-1200 A. D. from Vedic period but factually upto the end of the rule of Harsh Vardhan (606-647).

 

This publication not only provide revealing pages of ancient Indian history, also a lucid and interesting reading.

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
