Now available in paperback edition a book providing insights into design concepts which can benefit modern day living.
Almost fifteen hundred years before modern architecture came into its own, Vaastu Shastra, the classical Indian treatise on architecture, had set down principles of good planning and design which have been in practice in this country ever since.
Today, people expect a Vaastu application to provide them instant cures and unending prosperity by relocating an entrance, window or room. However, Ananth, in this meticulously researched book, seeks to place Vaastu in its proper perspective as a highly evolved science, ridding it of the myths surrounding it. She examines the schools of thought existing in the tradition, the system's application, and the responsibilities of the designers.
Supplemented with beautiful illustrations, this book is an authoritative text which combines traditional with the needs of a modern and transitional society.
