Hampi the splendour that was M S Krishna Murthy R Gopal
Located on the Tungabhadra river, about 120 km west of Bellary in Karnataka, south India, Hampi: earlier called Vijayanagara, was founded in 1336 AD. From 1336 to 1565, the site served as the capital of Vijayanagara Empire: perhaps the most glorious Hindu kingdom, which was founded in the wake of Muslim invasions of peninsular India. As the seat of a military state that dominated the whole of South India, barring the Kerala coast, Vijayanagara: ‘the City of Victory’, was built up by its rulers...

India in the world of physics then and now edited by Asoke N Mitra
None can possibly question the remarkable Indian contributions of the pre-independence era – through the seminal researches of home-grown stalwarts, like S. Ramanujan, J.C. Bose, C.V.

This book, accordingly, presents a cross-section of Indian contributions to physical theory since independence – the contributions that have had a distinct global impact. It is an...
Historical paintings of Srirangapatna a stylistic study Veena Shekar

Both he and his father, Hyder Ali are notable in Indian history for their resolute resistance against the rising power of the British in India. Srirangapatna today is renowned for the seemingly impregnable fort of Tipu Sultan. And is about 15 km...
Mint road milestones RBI at 75 editors Bazil Shaikh Ranjeeta Dubey S M Khot
It is not the history of Reserve Bank of India (RBI), but a retrospective, a chronicle of events as they happened since its inception in 1935. An effort to relive the past, the book is written with a sense of nostalgia. And with a bit of pride as well. As the central bank of the country, RBI performs not only traditional banking functions, like monetary and currency managements -- serving as a banker to the government and as a banker to banks, but also has played a pioneering role in diverse...

Many of these publications are of great merit and valuable contribution keeping the cultural, ethnic and linguistic pluralities of the Indian society in mind. However, not all of them are easily accessible. Indeed, finding a...
