India, in this chronology of events, stands for the country as it is today and as it was before the Partition in 1947. It takes off from 1424 BC, the year widely accepted by historians as that of the Battle of Mahabharata. Until the end of the 17th century, it mostly covers historical events with reference to matters concerning religion as well as the lives of luminaries. Divided into four parts, the encyclopaedia contains (A) a chronology of events, year wise, with cross-references to other years, (B) arrangement of the events by calendar dates, (C) a list of important dynasties, and (D) a full index section, as well as an extra feature, First time in India -- General and Women.

Author Biography - S.B. Bhattacherje
S B Bhattacherje, though not a historian, is keenly interested in developing a chronological record of various events in India. His specialisation in 'Sales Management' demanded extensive travelling all over the country during his service career with Imperial Chemical Industries, Union Carbide and even thereafter. His avocation prompted him to avail of every opportunity to pick up the country's evolutionary past, right at the source, weaving a serialised structure: The outcome of his sustained efforts, over several years, is this unique Encyclopaedia.
