Description
About the Book

Indian civilisation is marked by its length and a remarkable continuity. And through this civilization runs a cultural diversity enriched by the interactions with several other civilisations over time. This book explores some of India's cultural dimensions-religion and philosophy, music, drama and dance, art and architecture, language and literature-in their classical as well as folk traditions. Modern developments, such as the cinema and the growing importance of media in the cultural stream, have also been discussed.

Dear friends, I just placed my order for one Radhe-Shyam copper bangle and I am looking forward to seeing the quality of your products. I have been searching for years for this price range of bangle with 'Radhe Radhe' or 'Radhe-Shyam'. I may add more items as I was not through shopping when I clicked on PayPal. Thanks sooo much for providing such hard-to-find and fair-priced items! Sincerely, David Briscoe

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
