All human societies have medical beliefs that provide explanations for, and responses to birth, death and disease. Throughout the world, illness has often been attributed to witchcraft, demons, adverse astral influence, or the will of the Gods, ideas that retain some power, with faith healing hand shrines, still common, although the rise of scientific medicine in the past two centuries has altered or replaced many historic health practices.
This book chronicles the growth and evolution of this field from the beginnings of civilization itself, with special emphasis on the systems of medicine and healing that have been practiced(less)

A form of micro-mechanics, the main theme of this science lies in the control of matter in the range of 1-1000 nanometers, and the fabrication of devices along the same length scale. A highly multi-disciplinary field, nanotechnology is viewed by many as an extension of previous sciences applied to the sub-micron scale, or a re-casting of existing sciences using a new, modern term.
The book chronicles the development of nanotechnology as it is today, from the time of Richard Feynman's lecture; however space has also been given to a brief discussion of pre-nanotechnology. It future gives a meticulous and well-researched documentation of(less)

"India is in the process of attaining higher levels of food production for matching the demand of the growing population. Much emphasis has been laid on intensive agriculture sustainable practices because of indiscriminate use of chemical fertilizer and pesticides has led to the deterioration of soil health, contamination of air, water and food.
It is an alarming issue at global level, especially among the agricultural and environmental scientists. Therefore, attention has now been given to conventional system of agriculture for harmful chemicals-free and safe food for human consumption.
Organic farming is an agriculture without chemical input. India needs organic farming as a farmers' movement.
This will help to get safe food, control soil erosion, structure and improve(less)
As pointed out in this volume, the word 'Hindu' is derived from 'Sindhu', the Sanskrit name for the river Indus, and the original inhabitants of the Indus Valley and beyond were so called by foreigners, especially by the Islamic invaders. Because of the lack of any fixed dogma or doctrine, the absence of any one holy book propounding any fixed doctrine and the absence of any organized church or institution that can bring its followers together, Hinduism has emerged as a complex religion based as it is, like the ancient Greek religion, on freedom of thought, belief and expression and also on tolerance and non-violence.
At the same time Hinduism presents the students of world religions with a serious difficulty of bringing together the various beliefs, doctrines, customs and institutions under the same roof called Hinduism. Various accounts of Hinduism published so far therefore, give us only partial pictures of this unique faith.
In this Volume 45 scholars representing various disciplines and in different professions, have come together to contribute 63 chapters on various colorful aspects of Hinduism covering historically a very wide area, from vedic religion to modern Hinduism. Topically they cover various basic concepts, textual studies, customs, rituals and legal institutions, studies of Hindu social organizations, various movements and cults, like Saivism, Vaisnavism etc.
, Hindu art aesthetics and architecture, response to and relation with other Indian religions, and modern Hinduism represented by great reformists like Raja Rammohun Roy, Swami Dayananda Saraswati, Ramakrishna, Swami Vivekananda, Sri Aurobindo, Mahatma Gandhi, Rabindranath Tagore etc., and finally the volume concludes with a chapter on the reaction of Hinduism to science and technology.
The methodology of study as a whole is objective, balanced and unbiased, neither partisan nor unfairly critical, and no attempt has been made to defend any of the shortcomings of Hinduism or to glorify any of its merits(less)

"From the beginning of history, religion and philosophy has been admittedly the most vital force in shaping the human civilisation at various developmental stages. Although many scholars have worked on the history of oriental religio-philosophical tradition, but till date no such complete and comprehensive work on this subject is available to us.
Keeping this in mind, we have planned to publish multi-volumes Encyclopaedia of Oriental Philosophy and Religion in four phases successively in every year. The main emphasis has been given to provide comprehensive information about Hinduism, Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Jainism, Buddhism, Shintoism, Taoism, Confucianism, Islam, Sikhism and on other minor Oriental Religio-Philosophical system.
In the first phase of this encyclopaedic project, Hinduism in three volumes and Judaism in two volumes had been released in 2005. In the second phase of this project, we are publishing five volumes again on(less)
