Former Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh launched the Hindi adaptation of one of the most exhaustive and the best-selling History book on Ancient and Medieval India "A history of Ancient and Early Medieval India" in New Delhi.
This book is the most recommended book for all the undergraduate and postgraduate students who are pursuing History and is a key reference for all the civil service aspirants. The book is written by Dr. Upinder Singh, who is highly acclaimed Historian and Head of Department -History at DU.
This book covers history from stone-age to 12th century.
Apart from Dr. Upinder Singh and Dr. Manmohan Singh other eminent personalities such as Gopal Krishna, Former Governor of West Bengal, Prof. Nayanjot Lahiri, Professor of History at the Ashoka University and Mr. Vikas Singh, Vice President - Higher Education & Test Preparation, Pearson India were also present at the event.
On the auspicious occasion Dr. Upinder said "We have seen increased interest and enrolment of under-graduate students in the subject of history over the past few years. In fact, a substantial number of students in colleges and universities in North India have enrolled for the history course in Hindi and are more conversant in Hindi than English. This represented a void and an opportunity to adapt the content of the English book for Hindi students to further build their competencies in the subject. We are glad to once again partner with Pearson for this project. Being the industry leader, they possess the right expertise and knowledge in the domain. "
