      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Description

    KiMu KiPi (Tamil) traces human history from the dawn of time to the period leading up to the Christian Era. Written in an easy and engaging style, this is one history book that even people who find history boring might connect to.

    Summary Of The Book

    KiMu KiPi (Tamil) begins with the birth of the Earth and covers the evolution of human beings. It presents human history from before the dawn of the human race, in a way that will appeal to all readers, especially the young, who like history presented to them in short doses.
    The book appeared in a serialized form in Kumudam magazine. The short chapters and an easy conversational style keeps the narrative interesting. The author highlights interesting facts and episodes in human history. For instance, he points out that the known ancestor of mankind was actually a woman, from Africa. He describes the slow migration of human beings out of Africa and on to other parts of the world.

    He also explains how the trek might have been helped by the fact that plate tectonics kept changing the face of the earth. Continents that are now separated by miles of ocean between them were once joined together, facilitating the spread of the human race across the entire world
    KiMu KiPi (Tamil) talks about the evolution of culture and civilization, about the emergence of powerful empires, like the Greek, Roman and Egyptian empires. He also focuses on Indian history and traces the emergence of the first historical empire in India, the Mauryan empire, that defended the country against the Greeks, who had reached India under Alexander the Great.

    The book is a very interesting read, and is an introduction to human and world history, from the emergence of human like creatures, to the dawn of the human race and its development in all its facets, language, religion, culture, politics and ancient empires. It ends with the birth of Christ and the beginning of the Christian Era.

    Not promising

    The book is not as promising as the title or as the description says. It is just a compilation of some historical facts. Certainly not what was expected from a seasoned author as Madhan. I bought this book after reading his "Vanthargal Vendrargal". This book is a complete let down.

    But all in Madhans style, narrating is extremely good and he doesnt bore readers not going indepth in every path.

    Very brief history of human civilization till the birth of Jesus Christ

    This book can't be seen as detail history book but it is a brief description on evolution of human civilizations. Madan's intend is to provide some glimpse of history which would stimulate the reader's interest, to read more about the subject area. And he succeeds in it.

    Setting the right expectation is very important. Madan is not an historian. He has written in way it is interesting for layman. This book and "Vanthargal Vendrargal" both are of the same category. One may feel this book is n...

    Interesting !Quick Readable

    The book "KiMu kiPi" by Madan provides a well written overview from start of the earth
    till before birth of Jesus.It covers more on Egypt,Athenes.Not much on south India.Probably
    it may be covered in part2 of the book!
    In my school days I was not interested in History but after reading this book my awareness
    on bc(KiMu) changed from zero to knownlevel.Interesting bookQuick Read.
    After reading this I am curious to know more on history of India .
