Description

Introduction

 

The book PROFILES IN EXCELLENCE, in the series A VISION OF INDIA, features a few of the many eminent Indians who have made their mark in various fields such as the performing arts, sports, science, industry, literature and others. The book is an attempt to acquaint readers with contemporary Indians and their contributions to the country.

 

The book captures the genius of sports people like Kapil Dev, Viswanathan Anand, and P.T. Usha; scientists like Homi Bhabha and Vikram Sarabhai; film-makers like Satyajit Ray, and many other personalities from varied walks of life. All of them have achieved great heights in their fields and have made India proud.

 

With each profile, there is a section titled ‘DO YOU KNOW?’ which provides additional information to the reader in the related fields - a novel combination of knowledge and stimulation.

 

A VISION OF INDIA has been conceived as a continuing series. The books have been planned with the goal of unveiling India’s modem profile to young readers. The information is presented in a style that is simple and attractive, using visuals and language that would appeal to the young mind. The books will be a valuable addition to school libraries, as well as to the bookshelf of every child who is proud to be a citizen of India.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
