About the Book

This book covers a spectrum of topics related to culture and development that Dr. Kapila Vatsyayan present on different occasions and platforms. "Culture" has a wide meaning and varied interpretations. The term "development" is equally loaded and complex. Both the terms mean different to different persons. Development sans cultural values and ethos makes no sense. Therefore, interlinking of developmental programmes with cultural and educational programmes is imperative.

The volume thus discusses topics such as underlying concepts of the Indian cultural heritages,; cultural configuration; profiling of cultural development; cultural tourism, its scope and impacts; new educational policy and the need to incorporate cultural goals in it; cultural osmosis between India and Indonesia; cultural patterns of India; what is culture from the Indian perspective; challenge in institutionalizing culture; cultural relations between India and Indo-China countries; and the contribution of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes for providing a unique identity to Indian culture.

It also deals with Mahatma Gandhi’s blueprint on development and the report of World Commission on Culture and Development; Lenin’s role in making culture available to the Soviet masses and speaks about on ecology of human resources; and contributions of the Orientalists and the present status of Oriental Institutes, among some other topics.
