What do a sari, Mahatma Gandhi, the IITs, an autorickshaw and paan have in common? The answer is simple India. All of them can trace their roots back to India, even if some have now migrated to other cultures as well. Symbols of India explores the origin, development and relevance of these and many others. Some of them, like the Bhagavad Gita, have been around since centuries; others, like Bollywood, are relatively new. Some, like the curry, have become internationally renowned, while others, like the maharaja, seem to be on their way out. More than eighty symbols taken from every age, place and section of Indian society have been discussed in this book. With not-so-well-known facts and vivid descriptions, this book will appeal to all those who want to gain a better understanding of what India is all about.
