What is the greatest treasure that India has bestowed to the world?
Ahimsa or non violence, it is the weapon of the strong.
Nitin Mehta’s book ‘India – A Civilization The World Fails To Recognize’ explores the power of non violence and much more through its pages. The book traces Indian History from the beginning of human civilization to the present day Indian diaspora. India… the name conjures up many images. Most of them negative. However there is an amazing, incredible India. While many much more smaller countries are consumed by violence and civil wars, India remains a vibrant and stable democracy. It is an outstanding example of how people can co-exist in the midst of immense diversity. From the earliest astronomers and scientists of this great land to the visionaries of today, Nitin Mehta examines the impact on the modern world and asks the questions we would all like answers to.
Published by Educreation, the book provides a keen perspective on the glory of India through the ages.
