The Department of Sanskrit of South Campus has done. well in organizing an All India Seminar from 14-16 December, 1989 on the subject, "India as revealed in the Puranas and their role in national integration". The Depart ment, it is quite heartening to see, has published the proceed inks in a book form. The work incorporates wide range of topics and presents before the reader a rich and varied form. The Department certainly deserves the gratitude of all those who are interested in Puranic studies. The role of the Puranas in national integration has been well brought out here. The respective Puranas go to the minor details and preach the supremacy of one or the other sect. But at the same time, there is an over-riding theme of the oneness of reality. They delve on the diverse aspects of socio-religious practices but have always underlined the unity of Indian culture and tradition.
Rabindra Nath Tagore, in one of his great poems, Bharata-Tirtha (India as the great Holy Spot), has expressed in beautiful language, how different peoples came into India from pre-historic times right down to recent centuries, and have co-operated in building up a great culture, which does not seek to exclude anything, but is all-inclusive, and does not take up an attitude, which would deny to any people its right of self-expression. As a matter of fact, the great culture of India is fundamentally a synthesis-a synthesis of not only blood and race, but also of speech and of ways of thinking as well as of cultures-material, intellectual and spiritual; which give idealogies and determine attitudes and actions.
No culture or civilization has come into being in any country, and at any age, in a completed and a perfected form. There has always been an evolution in the development of man and his surroundings, Man is forever-becoming, and like all other things mundane, his affairs are always in a state of flux and change.
