Have you wondered if there is more to the stories of
Mahabharata than what we have heard from our
ancestors? Are they the only ones or there are more facts
hidden? The Chariots of Mahabharata is a story of the
unknown characters of the great Hindu epic,
Mahabharata. This story doesn’t limit to the great epic,
but extends to the people, the progeny, who pulled the
story of Mahabharata on their shoulders to let Dharma
win over evil. You may have only read the Mahabharata in
terms of Kauravas and Pandavas. Now, read more about
how Draupadi was insulted in an open court and about
the little-known, land of Mohoma. Mohoma was a courtier
in the kingdom of King Shantanu and it was his legacy,
which had a great role to play in the war of Mahabharata.
Surprisingly, the land of Mohoma is nowhere mentioned
in the depths of time. Read on to find out how his family
was cursed and was, hence, divided while taking sides of
Kauravas and Pandavas. Dive into the story of the family,
which went through turmoil because of someone else's
war, the war, which was a result of their master's rivalry,
and the story of how they and the two great armies of
Kauravas and Pandavas looked at the entire war. Find out
the answers for yourself if the Pandavas were really
correct or if the Kauravas were so wrong in doing what
they did.

Terricolous lichens, a habitat specialist group of lichens play a vital role in maintenance and ecological stability of soil crusts with reference to their physical stability, hydrology and growth of soil microflora. Terricolous Lichens in India, Volume 2: Morphotaxonomic Studies is the first lichenological study of this functional group. Based upon extensive field collections and the investigation of approximately 4,500 specimens preserved in various national and international herbariums, Terricolous Lichens in India: Volume 2: Morphotaxonomic Studies focuses on the morphotaxonomy of terricolous lichens in India. Divided into two chapters, the first chapter describes the basics of soil lichen curation from Indian habitats, presents the various morpho-anatomical and chemical techniques for taxonomic identification, and introduces the morpho-anatomical features of terricolous lichens. The second chapter focuses on the taxonomy of 312 terricolous lichen species and includes detailed identification keys and taxonomic descriptions.

Written by experts in the field and complemented with over 50 color photoplates and maps, Terricolous Lichens in India: Volume 2: Morphotaxonomic Studies is a valuable resource for researchers and students interested in the field of lichenology.

Terricolous lichens, a habitat specialist group of lichens play a vital role in maintenance and ecological stability of soil crusts with reference to their physical stability, hydrology and growth of soil microflora. Terricolous lichens in Indian lichenological studies haven't been taken up as a functional group.



Terricolous Lichens in India, Volume 1: Diversity Patterns and Distribution Ecology is the first ever publication dealing with soil lichens of India. Divided into five chapters, this volume discusses the lichenological researches in India with reference to terricolous lichens, the altitudinal distribution patterns of terricolous lichens, comparative assessment of distribution with global patterns, and the photobiont diversity and influence of novel molecular clades of photobiont in determining ecological preferences of soil lichens in India.



Written by experts in the field and supplemented with numerous photographs, Terricolous Lichens in India, Volume 1: Diversity Patterns and Distribution Ecology is a comprehensive resource that addresses the major drivers of terricolous lichens distribution in India.
