This online collection aims to digitize almost 6,000 ancient Hindu manuscripts so they are available for generations to come. Written on fragile palm leaves by scholars over 1,000 years ago, each are having high-resolution digital copies made which will be published online as part of a joint project between DAV College, Chandigarh Library and Mr S.P. Lohia (Chairman of Indorama Corporation). In addition, we plan to translate the manuscripts from Devnagiri and Sanskrit into Hindi and English. The project is ongoing and a long-term commitment which will take many years to complete.
