The Global India

Sivaji Rao Vallurupalli (Author)
Synopsis Mark Twain, American novelist and writer, stated that "India is the credit of the human race, birthplace of human speech, mother of history, grandmother of legend, and great grandmother of tradition; and our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only." Romain Rolland, French writer and Nobel laureate, observed that “ there is one place on the face of earth where all dreams of living men have found home from the very earliest days when man began the dream of existence, it is India"

Why they and others had believed so is explained in this book in the form of a factual account of India's unparalleled and unrivalled but little appreciated and understood 10,000-year long achievements and contributions to mankind since the Vedic ear and their spread to all parts of the globe. The material encompasses India's civilization, culture, societal structure, religions, languages, Vedic and post-Vedic scriptures, scientific discoveries, trade, pacifism, intellectual capital, knowledge, etc. it also includes the post-independence accomplishments in her relentless and steady quest to regain the splendour and glory lost under the 190-year British colonial oppression.

About the author

Sivaji Rao Vallurupalli

Dr. Sivaji Rao Vallurupalli, born on December 6, 1940 in Gudiavalleru, Krishna district, Andhra Pradesh, India, is a career weed scientist and agronomist credited with significant long-lasting contributions to agricultural science for about 40 years. He earned master's degree in agricultural science in 1963 in India and Ph.D. degree in 1973 at Cornell University, lthace, U.S.A. After serving on the research faculty of Cornell for two years, he went back to India in October 1975 to work at various governmental and  nongovernmental research institutions as senior scientist, director and adviser for over 19 years. Dr. Rao published dozens of research papers national and international journals besides the two editions of a popular reference-cum-textbook "Principles of Weed Science" by Oxford & IBH Publishing Company, India, in 1983 and Sciences Publishers, USA, in 2000. This professionally accomplished agricultural scientist returned to the U.S. in 1995 to continue his profession. Despite pursuing his chosen career, he has always nursed an avid and abiding interest in ancient history of the world, with particular reference to India. Having been taught the British-morphed history lessons and seen the contours of the magnificent Indian history through British lens, it become a challenging task to students of his generation to search for the true story and put it in proper perspective. This pursuit, which required a relentless research effort, has been lying dormant waiting for an opportune time to culminate. This decades-old effort has finally materialized in the form of this current book which exposes, narrates, describes and discusses the un-matched, peer-less and deep-rooted history and accomplishments of ancient, medieval and current India. Dr. Sivaji Rao and wife Nirmala Devi live in California, U.S.A. as also their daughter (Madhavi Lata). Son (Srinivas), son-in-law (Rajiev), daughter-in-law (Neelima), grandsons (Nikhil) and (Milind) and granddaughter (Ria).
