Help Cibi To Publish Illustrated Encyclopedia Book on Indian History

Greetings and Namaskaram !

 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.

Hello Donors,

Am working out things beyond architecture and costumes as that is mostly done. We are now going into trade and occupation of ancient India, of different communities. We are going to paint the workshops of them.

Things are moving slow because of the lockdown. But hopefully I will be able to progress faster in these months. A massive set of books worth Rs. 33,800 has been ordered from the previous withdrawal. They are yet to come. Thanks for your support.

Pranam,

Dear donors,

The Architects have made wonderful progress in reconstructing ancient Indian Buildings from the Mauryan upto gupta period. I think I have shown the sketches and 3d models to some of you.

We are using varied references like the Shilpa shastras, books of historians like Ananda Coomaraswamy, Dieter Shlingloff and so on. We are getting guidance and inputs from historian - architects who have made unparalleled contributions in the field of ancient Indian architecture.

We are using this money to complete the painting of an ancient Indian  port city called Poompuhar, to complete the fund rasing video that I have discussed in the previous letter to you.

You have all been so helpful in making the dream of bringing ancient India colourfully alive to come true. Thank you so much. Incase if you have questions regarding any aspect of the project, please write to me at : cibirajsingaravelu@gmail.com. I will help the best I can.

Wait for the city view in few weeks. Thank you !

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 !
