The Indian subcontinent is an amalgamation of peoples, cultures, languages and philosophies. Throughout history Indian culture has been subject to myriad different influences, from the Mughal Empire to the British Raj to the now globalized nation in transition.

This book studies 200 classic objects dating from antiquity to the present day, giving an overview of what makes Indian design so special. Rather than following a chronological order or concentrating on the (often anonymous) designers, this book separates the objects into abstract categories anchored by Hindi words chosen to illuminate how each object fits into the lives of Indians.
