Glimpses of Kerala Culture
Glimpses of Kerala Culture
Description
Back of the Book

“The book is usefully organized in three sections the first discussing the Dravidian of Non- Vedic Stream, and the third the synthesis of the two. The result is a delightful, instructive and yet highly readable volume which will afford hours of pleasure and education to anyone seeking an in-depth appreciation of Kerala culture. I commend it unreservedly to the discerning reader.”

 

About the Book

Glimpses of Kerala Culture offers an impressive and highly readable introduction to the carious art forms of the rich and ancient culture of Kerala.

The book gives profound and erudite insights into the four defined purposes of Hindu life, the origins and nature of dance forms of Kerala and its unique martial arts.

The book is divided into three parts, dealing with the Dravidian or the Non-Vedic Stream of civilization, the Vedic or the Aryan Stream, and the colours of the ‘United Stream’.

Glimpses of Kerala Culture provides a wealth of information while delineating various art forms and reflecting on a host of cultural aspects. The colorus of Kerala come alive in the vibrant mosaic of Indian heritage. The reader is amply rewarded and establishes an easy communion with Kerala.

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.
