Blurb/Shorttext:
Hindu civilization & culture has been in vogue ever before present. Has yielded myriads of icons. General iconological process has been from symbols→animal to human models. Not so for Sri Ganesa-the pan Asian deity. Defied every scholarly attempt to unravel his evolution pathway. Tusker headed + human torso, large tummied, dwarf. Lovely & unique art form. A enigma. Was an independent order; distanced from Siddhanta-Adhyatam-Sanatan way of life; Laid-back-life styler; prosperity oriented; urbane; paddy man; celibate; battle axe yielder. Buddhists; Saivas fought him, adopted-elevated him. Others kept his side. Recalcitrant; belligerent; irrepressible. A peerless sentinel; patron.Loved & Revered; popularity rising.Aided-abetted propitiators. Associated with Katakas(cantonments). Was a war trophy; victory memorial; sovereign. What not? Creation of the genius minds. A process continuum. 15 chapters; 90 figures; Tables; Cartographs; Diagrams; 345 pages; 15yrs research. A tome of 1st time facts; Extensive Bibliograph; Ancient palm Leaf Mss. Un-putdownable Hand Book On Indian Art & Iconology for scholars world wide. ‘Best' for India visitor. Ganesa was-is the sentinel of India. Rare book.
