"Indian culture has been Veda centric. It was, therefore considered necessary to make a rapid survey of what constitutes the Veda in the beginning.
Vedas are the oldest literature of the world. They are the holy books of the Hindus and are the foundation of Hindu religion (Vedo akhilo dharma mulam) and such the chief object of the nation's greatest reverence and admiration.
They have been so thoroughly and religiously preserved that despite their huge bulk and elapse of thousands of years since their codification not a single variation in the reading has been detected. No country has taken care so meticulously and tediously to(less)

One well-known orchid firm in England not long ago employed experienced travellers to explore the tropics, especially of America and Asia, for rare orchids, chartered ships for transporting them to England, and built a railway station adjoining spacious hot houses where special trains unloaded their precious cargo. It may not be easily credited in a country where orchids of one sort or another are found almost on every tree, that as much has been paid for a single orchid as would purchase a good-sized estate in Ceylon.
In the tropics orchid-growing is capable of affording infinite pleasure, and need not by any means be regarded as the(less)

Whilst recognising that allopathic medicine has its place, this useful book enables the reader to take charge of their own health and well-being thanks to a comprehensive listing and description of the complementary treatments available for specific conditions. Pills and surgery do not always cure the underlying problem and can create new symptoms and side effects.
The Project is not being executed by a single group of thinkers, methodologically uniform or ideologically identical in their commitments. Rather, contributions are made by different scholars of diverse ideological persuasions and methodological approaches.
The Project is marked by what may be called methodological pluralism. In spite of its primarily historical character, this project, both in its conceptualization and execution, has been shaped by scholars drawn from different disciplines.
It is the first time that an endeavour of such unique and comprehensive character has been undertaken to study critically a major world civilization. This Volume endeavours to present the perceptible facets of the(less)
