The Present volume is a reprint rather than a revised edition. At the same time, there are minor factual changes relating to population and development which will be helpful to the child who is reading the book today, more than twenty years after it first appeared.

This book was published to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Indian Republic. Communication with the young readers is achieved through visual materials familiar to the Indian eye. The main thrust of the content is Indian culture and the Indian way of life. Traditional motifs from classical, tribal, folk and modern art are used to explain these to the child. As such the original design and format of the pages is an integral part of the author’s intention.
