Book Description Bharatiya Kala Prakashan, Delhi, 2002. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. Culture and civilization, like homosapiens are evolutionary in nature. The significance of culture and civilization is continually felt by the people. It remains a lighthouse to the sea of humanity. The world, today, is too small to allow anyone to live a segregate existence. The social animals always look for symbiotic relationship. However the materialistic culture invaded earth and made strife eternal among people. The cultural aspects of people have been pushed to the background. As such the noble ideal of achieving Universal Brotherhood remains elusive. In the present context, the need for correct understanding and appreciation of people and the knowledge of different cultures arise. The present has its origin in the past and also indicates the future. The future of humanity depends on the present. Any digression in the onward march of humanity has to be corrected immediately with the help of the past. The current scenario of the world and of India clearly indicate how the diversive forces are operating and destroying humanity. As such International Peace or Unity in Diversity is possible only when there is a real appreciation of the sensibilities of other people. In the preparation of the book "Tamil Civilization in Epigraphy" considerable academic assistance has been made from the inscriptions. So for no sincere and serious attempt have been to write about the civilization of the Tamils based on inscriptions. It is a serious and fresh attempts in this field. CONTENTS: Foreword; Preface; 1.
