The Puranas, as suggested by their name, describe through stories, events deep in the Earth’s past. To find a complete cosmology in the Puranic texts that is most aligned to the view of cutting-edge science is almost incredible. Notion Press, India’s leading self-publishing platform, presents From The Beginning Of Time by Ganesh Swaminathan; an enthralling narrative pieced together by exploring familiar stories from the Puranas in great depth.

With recent advances in space-science, the significance of the various Puranic stories is now becoming apparent.

This book explores many such stories, in the context of modern science to come up with a compelling chronicle about our universe.
