India is not only a vast country but is also rich in history and tradition. It is not an easy task to get information on India. This encyclopaedia provides authentic information on Indian events by dates and years and offers an extensive list of dynasties. This book covers the happenings from the year of the battle of Kurukshetra up to 2001 onwards. The author picked up threads from all over the country to weave them into a texture of national panorama embedded with the events of history, politics, social reform, art, science, literature, cinema, theatre, sports, etc. These are interspersed with anecdotes to make it more interesting reading. In this book the name India in the title has been used in the historical sense till the march of events divided the country into India and Pakistan in 1947. This book will have a universal appeal where India's past and present progress are studied and discussed. Indians who live abroad and are separated from the mainstream are likely to find it quite handy. It will also help the upcoming generation to keep themselves abreast with the country's evolutionary process. To assist readers plenty of cross-references of years are given within bracket. The exhaustive index has more than 11,000 entries to pinpoint any specific information. This book is a wealth of knowledge with sections on first time in India, general and women. This book meets the acute need of the absence of any source having a chronological list of Indian events. Author Bio: S B Bhattacherje specializes in Sales Management. He has traveled widely throughout India. His avocation provided him with opportunity to pick up the country's evolutionary past right from the sources. This compilation took more than thirty years.
