Dr D V Gundappa's ‘Samskrti (Culture)’, originally written in Kannada, is a comprehensive but condensed analysis of the complex concept of culture. It is written in an epigrammatic, Baconian style. With his legendary erudition, DVG juxtaposes Western thinkers like Shakespeare, Mathew Arnold, John Henry, Cardinal Newman and Emerson with the opinions of Eastern savants like Valmiki, Manu, Bhasa and Bharthrihari and gives examples from characters like Sri Rama, Bharata, Arjuna and Anjaneya to present his concept of Culture. At the same time, he defines Culture thus - "If an object in nature is beautified by the discrimination of man, it is Culture." This book is translated into English by Sri. S Ramaswamy.
