Throughout its history India has witnessed innumerable small and big instances of social tensions, political rivalries, economic instability and such other problems arising out of its religious and cultural diversities. But inspite of all these the people of India have lived together in harmony. The articles included in this volume directly or indirectly bear this out. However, the vast and varied experience of India obviously cannot be presented in its entirety in a modest volume like this and so we had to be selective. While some of the papers are confined to specific subjects covering a particular region and period others deal with broader area and period of time. The book covers a wide range of subjects such as the contribution of mystics to amity, globalization and cultural impact, Syrian Catholics and India, contribution of Sikh saints, Neo Vaishnavites, communal relations, assimilation of cultures, social relations, cultural transformation, co-existence and so on. What is remarkable about the authors is that they have been able to avoid being either doctrinaire or sentimental even when the subject offered all the temptation to be so. Encompasses experiences of ancient, medieval, modern, and contemporary periods of Indian history. Contents:- Foreword 1. Ladders and Snakes : Cyclical Shifts in Culture Process 2.
