Synopsis: In addition to possessing a population asset and a fast growing economy it is often said that India has a deeper and more profound power arising from its ancient heritage expressed by its religions and philosophy, its arts, crafts, dance & theatre and architecture, among other manifestations. This book reveals the universal resonance in Indian art and culture, offering an authoritative overview of both the visual and performing arts. Votive traditions are also taken up, followed by an inquiry into traditions and rituals. The impact of Islam on Indian art and culture; cultural linkages with Central, South and Southeast Asia; India s festivals; the sociology of Indian music and cinema; the role of mathematics in arts are among the other topics covered in this well-researched and beautifully illustrated book.

He has also written 33 books, including Hindu Joy of Life (Niyogi Books, 2006), which has gone into a second edition.
