It is by a rare privilege that The Coins of India through its association with Inumismatics has been accorded the generosity of offering the published history writings by the eminent historian Dr. Shashank Sinha. A note from Arthur Needham. "I have always relished my meetings with Dr. Sinha. Conversations that are educational, probing, definitive, energetic and remarkably cutting through the flummery of expansive dialogues make me wish for more meetings with this incisive mind".
Please work through these illustrated wonderful concise pieces of real history.
