Connoisseurs of Conventional & E-publishing Trends

Indumukhi Publications is not one more added name to ‘exploit’ writers for running a creamy business. Experiences revealed to us that even though it is the writer who authors a book, conceives, imagines, plans and produces its contents, he is the last in profit-sharing. On an average, authors hardly get some 10% of the total income – the dregs and dross ‘left over’ after all have partaken of their shares. We have dared to turn the table by putting the authors on top.

Starting with our own simple but quality-packed books, Indumukhi Publications stretches its arms to take in its embrace all budding writers – ambitious, confident though rejected from everywhere.   At the same time, it opens up vistas for all those who want to strike a good business by selling and promoting books of abiding values. They include young boys and girls promoting our books at schools and colleges and other avenues with potentials readers. They may also include distributors, book-shoppers and agents working with us for justified profit. Our policy is to keep them ‘exploitation-free’ and keep us ‘burden-free’ also.

Indumukhi Publications is dedicated to a noble lady – (late) Mrs. Indumukhi Mishra (1932-1977) – who died in her prime age leaving behind us a small personal library with scores of books and, above all, an avid longing in the heart of her progeny for books that can truly change lives.  She bloomed like a wild flower, away from the parks of fame and glory, but the fragrances of her mental highness, her struggles and ever-fervent quest for knowledge will always be retained in each book published and promoted by this publication house bearing her name.

Children are our special assets and our most targeted readers because we believe that each child is a candle of hope in this morally dark world. Here, with our humble efforts in the area of knowledge, we declare our solemn pledge that our publications will continue keeping its focus on children – today and tomorrow – till these beautiful lines of the poet John Addington Symonds incorporating the vision of Baha’u’llah (The Messiah of this new age) will see the light of realization:

These things shall be, a loftier race
Than ever the world hath known shall rise
With flames of freedom in their souls,
And light of knowledge in their eyes.
They shall be gentle, brave, and strong
To spill no drop of blood, but dare
All that may plant man's lordship firm
On earth and fire, and sea, and air.
