The construction of this Website was possible by the hard work and dedication of many individuals.  At the time of publishing, there remain many segments to be written.  As it is difficult to do justice to a topic that spans the life of a civilization as old as India's, the decision was made to add the remaining segments as they are written.  We welcome authoritative articles from any reader, but we will retain the rights to edit all submissions to suit this site.  However, we will give the author the opportunity to review such changes, before we post the articles/submissions to this site.  When this site is completed, we hope it will become both a reference site for students and teachers about anything Indian and also as a platform for interchange of ideas.  A short description of the respective roles of the writers and other contributors so far, will follow:
