"If there is one place on the face of this Earth where all the dreams of living men have found a home from the very earliest days when Man began the dream of existence, it is India."

- Romain Rolland - French Philosopher 1886-1944

Continuity and Change: Caprisoned Elephants lumber along the Raj Path in New Delhi as a part of India's Republic Day parade.

This book aims at disproving the generally held belief that in ancient times India had only been a land of spiritual development with modest achievements as far as material culture goes. In the opinion of many Westerners as well as some educated Indians, ancient India was only a land of sages, seers. hermits and philosophers or Sadhus, Sanyasis, Rishis and Gurus as they are called. But though spiritual philosophies did flower in India, they were not the only contribution of India to human civilization.

The impression that India is only a land of spiritual development exists because India has been the birthplace of non-temporal values and attitudes like renunciation, meditation, the physico-psychic discipline of Yoga, the concepts of non-violence (Ahimsa), Equality among religions that has found its expression in our policy of religious tolerance 'Sarva Dharma Samabhava'., etc.
