The Great Indian Mind
The Great Indian Mind
Description
Preface

The Great Indian Mind is an anthology of essays and speeches by some of the most persuasive Indian thinkers. Renowned as freedom fighters, educationists, people of letters, philosophers and scientists, they are men and women who shaped the destiny of a nation. The writings exhibit synthesis and extrapolation of a common endeavour to enhance the frontiers of knowledge and the understanding of social concerns from diverse perspectives.

This book is an attempt to expose readers to a wealth of philosophical, scientific and literary thought which spans two centuries. Here they can reflect on the path-breaking ideas of great minds on subjects as diverse as poetry, science, religion and patriotism. The anthology takes the readers through a historic period when idealism was tempered by pragmatism, viz. an age when actions spoke louder than words.

A brief introduction to each piece gives the leaner a profile of the writer, with a glimpse of the text that is to follow. It enables the learner to comprehend the writing in its historical perspective. The glossary provides guidance so that learners can read independently and understand the complex issues that are discussed The exercises that follow are contextual and extrapolative in nature. The questions test local, global and inferential comprehension.

The Great Indian Mind has been compiled with the hope that it will inspire young readers to be sensitive to the richness and variety of our national heritage. It is an amalgam of critiques on Indian society that, even today, continues to enjoy relevance, both in India and abroad.

You have a great selection of books, and it's easy and quickly to purchase from you. Thanks.
Ketil, Norway
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.
Mike, USA
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.
