As you all know, there are hundreds of books on the history of Rome, Egypt, Babylon, China which are spectacularly illustrated. There isn't one book that represents the history of India, in particular the ancient timeline - the India which Megesthenes saw, the India that Chanakya and Ptolemy wrote about, the India that Greeks saw and Alexander wished to conquer.
It is an undertaking as expansive as the history of India herself. We cannot do it without your help. In order to engage the future generations of India and grab their interest young, we need to have illustrations that are comparable or surpassing the best books out there. There are numerous excellent illustrators world-wide and I am in the process of engaging with them. We don't want to compromise on the quality but, it does come at a cost.
The generous donations that you make will serve to pay the artists that are working for the project and to buy books, travel allowances etc.
21 topics from textile technology to war, from Astronomy to Ship building all in 350 pages or more will make the Illustrated Encyclopedia of Indian History - Volume 1 : From the Beginnings upto the end of classical period.
Our target is to complete it by the year 2021 and dedicate it to Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam Sir's vision 2021. His birthday is what we are aiming for in all earnest. We also have our next vision planned and are super excited about it - a series of Children's books which expand on the foundation laid in this book. We will flood the market with authentic history aided by kid-friendly colourful pictures and digital art. If you share our vision, please donate for our cause generously.
