The classifications of Gita subject-wise has been done by each and every commentator and translator in his own way. But all these are as per the order of the chapters of Gita – 1st to 18th. No one has yet attempted to break away the very order of it. This seems to be the first attempt of its kind to reclassify it topic wise, and the compiler is worthy of praise for his labours to attempt to present Gita in novel way. (See Foreword)

The book will serve as an important aid to the philosophical teachings of Gita to the curious readers. The novelty of the work lies in the fact that the author has taken great pains in classifying the thematic contents of Gita.

I am happy, indeed privileged, to contribute this ‘introduction’ to this study of Gita, not in the usual ‘Chapter wise’ manner but topic wise by the author… he has laboured hard to avoid what he considers are ‘repetitive’ and even prone to confuse any who is not a scholar. (See Introduction)

…Something which didn’t strike any scholar or students of the great book all these centuries.
…The book may prove a landmark in the studies of the Gita. The manuscript makes a fascinating reading and one gets surprised over the range of topics covered in the original book. Apart from the expected topics of dharma, meditation, devotion, karma, there are the unexpected ones like pleasure, passion and even food.
