The Marwari Heritage

D.K. Taknet (Author) Veena Baswani (Editor)

From the early Vedic period, the Vaishyas, the oldest mercantile community of India, generated wealth for the nation through their remarkable efforts. Their Marwari offshoots were appointed by many rulers as ministers, advisors and diwans and were recognized as the first philanthropists in India. The Marwari Heritage takes the readers on a voyage of discovery of the Marwaris who migrated from Rajputana, Haryana, Malwa and its adjoining regions to other parts of India and abroad. They became the uncrowned kings, first of trade and business, and later of industry. They joined the freedom struggle with a true spirit of patriotism and many courted imprisonment and even achieved martyrdom. Today, the roots of the Marwari community, a leading business community of India are deeply enmeshed in the social, cultural and economic fabric of India.

This pictorial book had been researched over five years, research teams travelled over 3,50,000 kilometres and spent over 2000 days researching and interviewing over 10,000 people directly or indirectly associated with the Marwari community to complete the research study on the past, present and the future of the community. The book comprising of 511 pages+8 end pages on the imported art paper and richly illustrated with over 700 rare, illustrations, paintings, documents, etchings, colored and black & white photographs. This coffee table book also serves as an inspiration to any and everyone who dares to dream and reach for the skies.
