The issues enlarged upon in this volume have often been discussed by Dr. Vatsyayan, including the interconnectedness of the arts and the integration of body, mind and senses in the Indian artistic traditions. She pursues the possibility of establishing linkages between the arts, education and the sciences on the one hand, and those between the world of traditional knowledge systems, cultural expression, indigenous languages, and the more structured formal educational systems, on the other, shedding brilliant insight and perception into yet another realm of scholarly enquiry that is likely to impact our understanding of the workings of culture, the nation state, education, and policy in India.
