1 Rai Govind Chandra
Indian Symbolism: Symbols as source of our customers and beliefs with a foreword by R.P. Tripathi
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1996; 8121500818 / 9788121500814; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 
Symbols have great significance for understanding early Indian religion, beliefs, art and culture. Of these symbols, some were widely current, and continued to be in use for several centuries and are found delineated in sculpture, architecture, pottery, coins, paintings, etc. Rai Govind Chandra in his Indian Symbolism: Symbols as Sources of Our Customs and Beliefs has taken up for study twelve symbols, the Purna Kumbha or Purna Ghata, Svastika, Srivatsa, Nandipada, Cakra, Vardhamanaka, Matsya or Matsyayugma, Bhadrasana, Caturbhuja Cinha, Triratna, Vaijayanti, and the Kalapataru and the Kalpalata. Each of these symbols is important particularly from the point of view of art and iconography. Rai Govind Chandra has discussed in great detail about the origin, meaning and diffusion of all these symbols. Having traced their occurrence in different periods and cultures as well as in different mediums, both in India and outside, the author has been able to demonstrate their primitive and naturalistic beginnings. Rai Govind Chandra's Indian Symbolism is an extremely important contribution and is an indispensable work for scholars and researchers of Indian art, culture and religion.

2 Rai Govind Chandra
Indo-Greek Jewellery
Abhinav Publications/Kaveri Books; New Delhi, India; 8170170885 / 9788170170884; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In this monograph the writer has tried to show how the Greek jewellery motifs were imported into India, which have been discovered in the jewellery found in Taxila and other border towns where Alexander had allowed his soldiers to settle down. Among these soldiers were goldsmiths who just manufactured jewellery on Greek patterns but later influenced by Indian motifs began to mix these with Greek ones. This Indo-Greek jewellery found a ready market among the Indo-Greeks who inhabited these towns. The writer has dealt with the jewellery found under different chapters entitled the jewellery for the head, ears, neck, arms, wrist etc. This analytical thesis is of interest of all Indologists and is specially useful for scholars studying Indian jewellery and ornaments of the first century A.D.
