A Divinity in Flow – Ganga
Published in 2008 by Vision India Publications
Text by : Vijay Singal | Photographs : Atul Bhardwaj | Foreword by : Amitabh Bachchan | Released by : Aamir Khan
‘While this book through its vibrant photographs and exhilarating encounters in an outstanding journey along the river, it is also a humble invitation to the people of India to care for and protect this divine legacy’ – Amitabh Bachchan.
This book is the result of three years of extensive travel along the 2510 kms. long river-right from the Gangotri glacier (the source of the river) down to the Ganga Sagar, where it merges into the Bay of Bengal. Its uniqueness lies in its approach to the subject. It does not focus only on the popular destinations such as Rishikesh, Haridwar and Varanasi. Instead, more than 300 pictures portray the daily life of millions of people living around this river, as it grows from gentle streams, flows through the planes of north India and is consumed through the vast delta of the Sunderbans.
‘The book presents an interesting combination of mythology, art, culture, spirituality and
history related to the mighty river’ – The Indian Expres

This book is a pilgrimage through the length and breadth of the sacred land called Punjab which has been blessed from time to time by rishi-munis, the great gurus and other religious teachers.
The book has explored different aspects such as social conditions, religious beliefs and economic progress of this blessed land. Uniqueness of a beautiful culture has been brought out nicely in simple words and through marvelous pictures. This book has described so succinctly the sweetness of melodious songs, simplicity of music and energy of irresistible dances of Punjab. It has succeeded in capturing alive the vigor, vitality and vivacity of a common Punjabi.
Bhagavad Gita – Saying it the Simple Way
Published by Vision India in 2018
Text by : Vijay Singal | Launched by : Akshay Kumar
Numerous commentaries have been written on Bhagavad Gita by men of eminence, from time to time. Each and every word of this sacred scripture of Hindus has been analysed, Interpreted and re-interpreted. It has variously been described as a religious classic, a philosophical treatise ; or a compendium of practical wisdom.
Various authors have given their own interpretations and illustrations, as per their own world view and understanding. My purpose in writing this book is not to create another work of academic excellence but to make available to every common reader a translation of each shloka of Gita in simple, straight forward and easy to understand language (both Hindi and English). While doing so, every care has been taken to not compromise, in any manner, with the exact meaning and real intent of the couplets.
I am personally convinced that the translation of the shlokas has been done in such a manner that no further commentary or explanation of individual shlokas ; or the text as a whole would be required.
To reach out to more and more people, I have regularly been putting these shlokas on my twitter handle @vijaysingal
Hinduism: From Maya to Moksha

This book is no ordinary work on Hinduism.

Both the strengths and weaknesses of this religion of eternity, Sanatan Dharma, have been flagged emphatically. Misplaced perception of multiplicity of gods has been demolished, with great conviction.
This book has highlighted the fact that Hinduism, though religion of antiquity, is not only equally relevant today, but is also fully equipped to face the challenges of future. Such a perspective can instill bonding, pride and confidence in adherents of this great stream of liberal thought. It can also help others in acquiring an appropriate understanding of this great tradition of universal brotherhood.
