Comes from the IAS officer himself, its a must book for absolute understanding of the subject. I would suggest everyone to have the book for UPSC Art & Culture --ByParikshit Rajurkaron 25 November 2017
It's a lovely book. Not only the content, but the print quality and overall aesthetics is also brilliant. You'd love the feel of the book in your hands. Most importantly, the content quality is amazing, comprehensive yet focused. A must have. --By Pankaj Kasanaon 7 January 2018

Not the best book in the market.
The arrangement of the text is theme wise unlike 'An Introduction to Fine Arts - NCERT' which presents the content chronologically. For example, the first chapter is about Indian Architecture from ancient to modern times, the next chapter about Indian Paintings and so on. The Fine Arts NCERT presents all that happened in the pre-Harappan times in a chapter with the next one dealing with Harappan period. I find this presentation useful from two perspectives -
1. Its easier to memorise
2. Questions are asked in this pattern.
This is a one stop solution to Indian Art & Culture for all exams. No more scanning the web for NIOS material, browsing for indiaculture.nic.in or CCRT. Believe me, I have done that. And I wouldn't be writing this review if I had not cleared the UPSC prelims in 2019.
