Description

Introduction

 

The book PROFILES IN EXCELLENCE, in the series A VISION OF INDIA, features a few of the many eminent Indians who have made their mark in various fields such as the performing arts, sports, science, industry, literature and others. The book is an attempt to acquaint readers with contemporary Indians and their contributions to the country.

 

The book captures the genius of sports people like Kapil Dev, Viswanathan Anand, and P.T. Usha; scientists like Homi Bhabha and Vikram Sarabhai; film-makers like Satyajit Ray, and many other personalities from varied walks of life. All of them have achieved great heights in their fields and have made India proud.

 

With each profile, there is a section titled ‘DO YOU KNOW?’ which provides additional information to the reader in the related fields - a novel combination of knowledge and stimulation.

 

A VISION OF INDIA has been conceived as a continuing series. The books have been planned with the goal of unveiling India’s modem profile to young readers. The information is presented in a style that is simple and attractive, using visuals and language that would appeal to the young mind. The books will be a valuable addition to school libraries, as well as to the bookshelf of every child who is proud to be a citizen of India.

Dheeranand Swamiji

Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
Steven, USA
