A lucid enunciation on various aspects of Indian culture in the back-drop of world culture in a remarkably persuasive style.

Culture implies an integrated personality and neither time nor eternity can be left out of it. The cultured man reconciles the universal with the particular and the claims of time with the claims of eternity.

If European civilization is tending to transform old native civilization of Asia and Africa, the old native civilization of Asia is tending to beget on Europe a new spiritual era in the West. This is how a global culture may come into its own, gathering together the best that has been felt, thought and done in different parts of the world.

For it is here, on Indian soil, that the pattern of the world culture of tomorrow is on the anvil for being fashioned in all its unity and complexity.

Author, an eminent writer and educationist, has drawn various conclusion which deserved the consideration of all right-minded Indians who believe that an understanding of one's own culture in its interactions with other cultures is one of the prime requisites of the progress of mankind.
