About the Book

He became a legend in the Indian Army, who is still revered by the jawans. Brilliant General, brave fighter, Field Marshal Cariappa was first of all, a soldier of the people.

Joining the Army, under the British Raj, he displayed great valour and organizational abilities and broke the racial barrier to become the first Indian commanding officer. During World War II, fighting in the Middle East and the daunting terrain of the North West Frontier, Cariappa proved his mettle as a commander.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
