The Penguin Book Of Hindu Names
The Penguin Book Of Hindu Names
Description
The product of several years of research, The Penguin Book of Hindu Names is comprehensive compilation of Hindu names in current use. The meaning of each of the approximately 20,000 names in the volume is extensively discussed and information on sources and usage is also provided. The book is cross-referenced to make it easier to use. The aim of the work is twofold: to serve as a practical guide for parents choosing a name for their offspring; and to provide a precise and in depth sourcebook for scholars, pundits and lay readers who would like to know what familiar (and not so familiar) Hindu names actually mean.

Reviews:

" Good, serious, authoritative research well presented." - Sunday Observer.

" The dictionary offers hours of fascinating browsing pleasure." - Deccan Herald.

Testimonials
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.
