What these rare books tell us; It is a record of fascinating part of our history, well documented and extremely well written. They are very informative, and give you lot of insights of the period. Amazingly, they have been preserved with lots of care by the universities and other educational institutions abroad, but some are still available in India as well. Now they are being digitised with equal care, dedication and commitment for the sake posterity, and are freely available to download. You read them and you will never have the same allergic and myopic attitude, of that particular period of our past.
