Some Customer Reviews
I am a doctor in Gwalior. It was only the other day, that I bought from Delhi, yourmultimedia CD - India Mystica. Hats off to you for a great effort. All of us have like liked the content and the presentation in its entirety.
- Dr. Deepak Johri MD ([email protected])
We the young of 21st century, modern -so to say; with awareness of our rich heritage only for using as a catch word, shallow/ pseudo thinkers needed something like this to shake us up ... Your articles are: Very well, written, precise, short (to cater to most people's reducing attention spans), informative & instill pride and awareness in India.

Very Impressive effort, Greatly inspiring , Keep it up
- Dr. B. Rajesh Srinivas (New Delhi, India)
In all its facets, right from clear chimes of ringing bells at the temples to the chanting of reverential Vedic hymns, digitized motion videos of important ceremonies, animation of episodes of the great epics, rich baritone voice of the opening commentator and in the sheer articulation of all its details, your work has emerged a distinct winner. Also considering that a good deal of lead time would have gone into its creation, the format and aesthetics of presentation do have a practical, contemporary appeal.
