 DESCRIPTION
spacer
Volume 1 -- This book illuminates the mystery of advent of humans in India based on latest scientific data. The illustrative description of weaponry, cave-dwellings and rock paintings of Stone Age unravels the life-style, living condition and creative faculties of the primitive Indians. The 5000 years old Sindhu-Saraswati valley civilization has been rediscovered showing the achievement of ancient Indians in the field of engineering, sculpture, art and trade. And new light has been thrown on its decline. The cultural life and activity of Vedic Indians including their skill in mining and metallurgy have been evaluated from synthesis of their literature. The custom and tradition of Indian Megaliths have been highlighted with reference to their expertise in iron smelting and making iron tools. The themes of all the chapters are illustrated with colour photographs and maps. It is hoped that this book will bring delight to common readers as well as students of science. Volume 2 -- India possessed knowledge of building stone monuments before the Christian era. Ancient Indians evolved the tripartite classification of rock and formulated guidelines for use of different types of stone for architectural and sculptural works. The vast terrain of India is endowed with good quality building stones that influenced construction of innumerable stone monuments still surviving in different parts of the country. Monuments spread over different parts of India including all those of World Heritage status have been described in this work with respect to their architectural style, construction approach, site condition, foundation, building stones and quarry sites. They represent diverse types of structure (e.g. stupa, rock-cut cave, temple, mosque, tomb, church etc.) constructed of different varieties of building stones during early historic to British time. A vast collection of colour photographs and maps illustrate the mystery and marvels of the monuments under description in this book and it will be a treat to all readers including the tourists and arm-chair travelers who are interested to see the creative excellence of Indian monuments.
