The book, Communication through the Ages: An Indian Perspective, is based on an altogether new concept and a multi-dimensional definition of the word, rather, term communication, going much beyond its conventional definition 'to connect' and not limiting it to verbal, written, or print and electronic media, or radio, television, satellite, computer and cellular telephony means and tools of connectivity. At a mundane level, it includes audio-visual presentations by means of theatre, folk songs and classical music as well as through medium of dance - all leading to aesthetic and sublime experience not necessarily making knowledge of language essential for their appreciation. And at a supra-mundane level it connects man with other worldly experience and extra-sensory perception, viz., god, heavenly bodies and transference of vital energy through the means of reincarnation etc. The book comprises of twenty contributions of experts and specialists belonging to different schools of thought and diverse disciplines.
