This valuable work enables the common reader to easily comprehend the choicest treasures of India’s rich cultural heritage. Though dealing only with verses from Vedic hymns to Ashokan Edicts to classical Sanskrit Kavyas, the book encompasses distinctive specimens of poetry from five periods of Indian history.

Written in easy-to-read, simple English, the book brings flavors of Indian classical heritage more closer to the readers who are otherwise deprived of experiencing the brilliance of these works, owing to their inability to understand the classical languages in which they were written.

An interesting book, not only for students of history and literature but for all those who are interested to know Indian history more closely.
