Rabindranath Tagore is one of the best known Indian renaissance figures. A man of many talents, he was a writer, poet, philosopher, painter, educationsist, composer of songs and above all a patriotic visionary. Despite being educated in England he was firmly rooted to the Indian way of life. He was the first Indian to be conferred the Nobel prize which he got in 1913 for his work Gitanjali. The selected quotes included in this book reveal Tagore’s wisdom, deep insight and sensitivity towards people and the world around him.

This book is an account of how Dr. Kalam visualizes Information and Communication Technology mining the rural talent. Here, Dr. Kalam presents his dream of schools in India at 2020 as symbiotic nerve centres connecting teachers, students and community; personifying knowledge that exists in the world. He also makes a clarion call to accelerate the process of societal transformation. This would involve raising the standards of governance and safeguarding the sanctity of public institutions. The book uses the metaphor of a tree to describe the process of knowledge bearing fruits of prosperity in the contemporary globalised world where different phases, formative, adult working life, and post-50 experienced senior citizens, call for different kinds of learning. The book refers to a contextual contribution of a large number of Indian scientists and artists and proves that there is no age bar to blossom. He advocates creation of conditions that favour growth of diverse individual talents akin to a garden and calls for a scientific mind-set guided by conscience, consensus and by actions that take our social and moral values into account in building our own systems.
A Hindu, to sum up the conclusions arrived at, is he who looks upon the land that extends from Sindhu to Sindhu, from the Indus to the seas, as the land of his forefathers, his pitrabhu, who inherited the blood of that race whose first discernible source is traced to the Vedic Saptasindhus, which, on its onward march, assimilated much that was incorporated and ennobling. The Hindus, who inherited and claimed as their own the culture of that race, as expressed chiefly in their common classic language, Sanskrit, and represented by a common history, a common literature, art and architecture, law and jurisprudence, rites and rituals, ceremonies and sacraments, fairs and festivals, and who, above all, address this land, this Sindhustan, as their punyabhu, as the holy land, the land of their saints and seers, of godmen and gurus, the land of piety and pilgrimage. These are the essentials of Hindutva – a common rashtra, a common jaati, and a common sanskriti. All these essentials could best be summed up by stating in brief that they are Hindu to whom Sindhustan is not only a pitrabhu but also a punyabhu.
—Excerpts from this book
This classic and unique book, Hindu Rashtra Darshan by Swatantrayaveer Savarkar, gives the true meaning and correct picture of the Hindu Rashtra, wherein everyone living on the land this side of Indus river is a Hindu by culture, by values and not by the religion in its narrow definition. The book is divided in three major parts—First part is Hindu Pad-Padshahi, Second is Hindu Rashtra Darshan and third part is Essentials of Hindutva. It is a must read book for all Bharatiyas.
विश्व के सबसे बड़े स्वयंसेवी संगठन ‘राष्ट्रीय स्वयंसेवक संघ’ के द्वितीय सरसंघचालक श्री माधवराव सदाशिवराव गोलवलकर उपाख्य ‘श्रीगुरुजी’ आध्यात्मिक विभूति थे। सन् 1940 से 1973 तक करीब 33 वर्ष संघ प्रमुख होने के नाते उन्होंने न केवल संघ को वैचारिक आधार प्रदान किया, उसके संविधान का निर्माण कराया, उसका देश भर में विस्तार किया, पूरे देश में संघ की शाखाओं को फैलाया।
निष्कपट भाव से ईश्वर की खोज को ‘भक्तियोग’ कहते हैं। इस खोज का आरंभ, मध्य और अंत प्रेम में होता है। ईश्वर के प्रति एक क्षण की भी प्रेमोन्मत्तता हमारे लिए शाश्वत मुक्ति को देनेवाली होती है। ‘भक्तिसूत्र’ में नारदजी कहते हैं, ‘‘भगवान्् के प्रति उत्कट प्रेम ही भक्ति है। जब मनुष्य इसे प्राप्त कर लेता है, तो सभी उसके प्रेमपात्र बन जाते हैं। वह किसी से घृणा नहीं करता; वह सदा के लिए संतुष्ट हो जाता है। इस प्रेम से किसी काम्य वस्तु की प्राप्ति नहीं हो सकती, क्योंकि जब तक सांसारिक वासनाएँ घर किए रहती हैं, तब तक इस प्रेम का उदय ही नहीं होता। भक्ति कर्म से श्रेष्ठ है और ज्ञान तथा योग से भी उच्च है, क्योंकि इन सबका एक न एक लक्ष्य है ही, पर भक्ति स्वयं ही साध्य और साधन-स्वरूप है।’’
