Description

Indian Through the Ages is a book that takes the reader on an unforgettable journey, exploring a fascinating country. India, in stages of growth from an ancient civilization to a modern, strong democracy is brought alive in a vivid and detailed manner here.

The book introduces readers, to a panoramic view of her history and civilization. It brings the saga of her sages and scientists, warriors and vagabonds, poets and philosophers, who, at various periods scripted the destiny of the Indian subcontinent. It enables conscious and sentimental men and women, to understand the national philosophy that has made Indian people a curious mixture of extremes.

What conditions and circumstances led Indian society to be passive and reflective rather that acquisitive and combative? The reader may be able to find answers to the enigma that makes Indian society fascinate the world from time immemorial. India’s freedom struggle and Gandhi’s leadership is also dealt with in detail. In short, it is the Indian history with all its important facets packed into one volume, which reads like a free flowing novel and proves to be a good reference source for generations to come.
