The cultural diversity of these monuments also points to an enter cultural spirit that exists throughout the history of Indian civilization and the stones speak for themselves.
An exhibition, with limited space needs to be focussed on the theme although the stones themselves vary nature and provenance. A book, however, permits to digress and helps to complete the picture and gives an opportunity to talk about the geological evolution of India and the birth of these rocks which form the cornerstone of all the monuments. This is where the importance of the second author comes in. As an eminent geologist with varied interests and a number of books to his credit. Professor Ganpat Roonwal is ably suited to do justice combining his knowledge of the geology of India to bring to life the 'silent witnesses which are the rocks.
