Cultural History of India has been divided into three parts to discuss various aspects of development of Indian culture. It talks about how religions such as the Vedic religion, Buddhism, Jainism, Saivism and Vaisnavism aimed at securing social harmony, moral upliftment, and inculcated a sense of duty in the individual. The development of Indian art and architecture was a creative effort to project symbols of divine reality as conceived and understood by the collective consciousness of the people as a whole. The book also focuses on social intuitions, educational systems and economic organisation in ancient India. Finally, the book discusses the dietary system of Indians from pre-historic times to c. 1200 A.D. The basis for inclusion of food and drinks in the book on Indian culture is that ancient Indians believed that food not only kept an individual healthy, but was also responsible for his mental make up.According to the author, "It is of utmost importance that the present generation imbibe those elements of Indian culture which have kept India vital and going through its long and continuous history".Cultural history of India is an extremely useful journal on Indian history and culture for all readers, both in India and abroad.
