What is the extent of Greek influence on the Art, Culture and Civilisation of Ancient India? To this basic question that concerns the very history of our land, there are two diverse answers, extremely opposed to each other. There is one school, mainly consisting of European scholars, that asserts that everything Indian has been, in its early beginnings, influenced by our contacts with Greece. There is the other patriotic achool that refutes this theory and upholds the absolute independence of Indian thought and culture. The author, one of the few eminent historians which India has ever produced, has approached this question objectively and analysed the slight yet stimulating influence of Greece on Indian thought and culture in all its manifold aspects, since the time of Alexander's invasion. The book is of such importance that no student of Indian History or Culture can claim his study to be complete without it.
