In this neat volume the learned Swami has depicted the national life of India with the outlook and precision of a true historian. His able marshalling of facts in their correct perspective throws a flood of light on the various aspects of Indian life, culture and civilization.

The volume is an exposition of India – ancient, mediaeval and modern. It covers the Indian life not only in its practical ways. It is an all-round account of India and her people. The Foreigners or Indians, who will feel an interest to know about India proper, will be highly helped by this work of supreme importance.
