Diversity that characterizes Indian civilization has seized attention of scholars world across. Many pundits shut the windows of wisdom to avoid looking at the 'incomprehensible India' in totality. Einstein once stated, 'The most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible. 'Similar thought about India arises after reading this book.

Rainbow of Indian Civilization is a bold attempt to neatly fit in manifold dimensions of Indian culture and civilization into a sutra. Sutra is the Sanskrit term for the thread as well as aphorism. This work is like an aphorism of Indian cultural history. The book begins with exposition over eco-philosophy of India as the world-view of rhythm and oscillations, generated through the monsoon that mediates not only geography but also the thought-currents between the high peaks of the Himalayas and the oceanic currents of the Indian Ocean. Interconnection appears as the major theme throughout the work. The connection spans between land and ocean, Buddha and Rama, dialogue and fusion, creepers and kundalini. The work is divided into seven parts corresponding to the seven colors of the rainbow-Shiva, Rama, Buddha, Tantra, Camatkara, Samvada and Shunya. The book is a pilgrimage of mind from Shiva to Shunya! Reading itself is analogous to a tirth-yatra for discovering Bharat-tattva.
