The book contains paper pertaining to the Vedic wisdom and Indian culture both in classical and contemporary contexts. It is an outcome of the study of classical literature with a positive and constructive mind. At places, it is a creative interpretation and reconstruction of the traditional ideas with a view to restoring their pristine purity and removing the contamination they have suffered from perverting influences due to travesty of history.

But for all these exercises there is sufficient basis in the Vedic literature. In undertaking this task the author is guided by the firm belief that no culture can survive and thrive if its seminal ideas, key concepts and fundamental doctrines fet fossilized and sterlized and do not admit of creative interpretation and reconstruction in keeping with the needs and aspirations of the particular age. The Vedic wisdom has displayed this vitality and that is why it has withstood the onslaughts of adversaries and vagaries of time.
