India is a unique country. One of the most distinctive features of its history lies in its mind-boggling diversity - in food, language, custom, tradition, climate and religious faith. What charms and astonishes sincere and unbiased students of its history is that its culture and religious traditions have withstood the onslaught of many foreign invasions for centuries without losing their original texture and color. This book is an attempt to give a glimpse into this rich heritage of India from Vedic times to the advent of Sri Ramakrishna. It contains pictures of exquisite paintings displayed at Vivekanandar Illam, the place where Swami Vivekananda stayed after his triumphant return from the West.
