Harappan Civilization and Vedic Culture

Shashi Tiwari (Editor) Ancient Indian Literary Heritage
A study of ancient Indian literary heritage is extremely relevant not only to appreciate India’s glorious past, but also for an enriched understanding of the many modern disciplines in right perspective.  Scholars and researchers of Vedic and Sanskrit literature recognize that there is a wealth of knowledge available in ancient texts and a deeper research will bring forth valuable information about chronology, civilization, culture, history and many other fields.  Such an endeavour will present the constant brilliance of Indian insight.  

The present volume comprises thirty seven selected papers of well known scholars that primarily work in the field of Vedic and Sanskrit Studies.  Papers by Dr. Kalyanaraman, Mr. Bhagwan Singh, Dr. S.P. Gupta, Mr. Michel Danino, Dr. Bhu Dev Sharma, Dr. Madan L. Goel, Dr. Bal Ram Singh, Dr. Pushpendra Kumar, Dr. Vedagya Arya and Dr. Fateh Singh definitely add increased value to this literary work.  All the papers are divided into two sections on the basis of medium of presentation – English or Hindi.  Among them, twenty two papers look at various issues associated with the Indus Civilization, while the rest, present certain aspects or concepts related to Vedic culture and civilization with a view to bring forth a fresher outlook on ancient Indian civilizations.  Most of these papers were presented in the twelfth India Conference of Waves, held on the theme ‘Harrappan Civilization and Vedic Culture’, and focus on our grand traditions.

We hope that researchers and scholars of Veda, Sanskrit and the Ancient Indian History will find invaluable insights and a unique glimpse into the ancient Indian culture and psyche through this publication.
