Indian Culture“ has just been released by Rupa & Co, New Delhi (ed. Claudine
Bautze-Picron) (and a pair of rAjahaMsa appears also there !). It contains
22 papers which were presented during a conference organized in April 2004
in Paris and cover various aspects as seen in the table of contents below
