Book ‘Relevance of Traditional Cultures for Present and Future’

2019 ias preliminary exam test series

The Vice President of India, M. Hamid Ansari has released the book titled ‘Relevance of Traditional Cultures for the present and the future’ edited by Shri Nalin Surie and Shri K. Raghunath and published by India International Centre and Konark Publishers.

The present volume, writes Dr. Vatsyayan in the Preface, is just one part of the ongoing efforts to bring together scholars from Asian countries (though not exclusively so) in a ‘sustained, long-term series of interactions, to stimulate scholarship and research in Asia, and to provide a productive forum for dialogue and cross-cultural interaction’, in the hope that it would create greater public awareness and bring to light the ‘significant affinities and commonalities among the Asian cultures’.

While examining the boarder contours, its focus remains on Asian societies today.
