Help Cibi To Publish Illustrated Books On The History Of Ancient India

Greetings. 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 our homeland India, in particular the Mauriyan timeline - the India which Megesthenes saw, the India that Chanakya and Ptolemy wrote about, the India that Greeks saw and Alexander wished to conquer.

We have planned take up this project and complete it within 2020. 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.

In addition to requesting for generous donations, we are also actively seeking suggestions for a suitable title for the book and areas of ancient history that must be represented.  

 Our target is to complete it by the year 2020 and dedicate it to Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam Sir's vision 2020. 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 have our hands busy till 2030.  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. Let's own our history. Jai Hind !

Dear Donors,

Right now, one of our digital artist is making a digital image of the Indian Portal city, with the input provided by a Gujarat based architect I hired. This image will be released soon and will be used for further funding pitch. This is really coming well and I cannot wait to share this with you.

Probably within Dec end, we will have a wonderful video for fundraiser coming up which will have most of the paintings that has been done so far. Thank you !
