Ebooks

ChitrapurEbooks.com is a community website dedicated to digitising and collating eBooks, articles, commentaries that are iconic in the collective memory of the Chitrapur Saraswats.

The Community (aka Bhanaps/Amchis) has experienced exponential and (sometimes) turbulent change in its 300 years+ of existence, and our endeavour is to glean the positivity from it, and look at the present & future, through the prism of it's past. The works presented here are unedited, mirroring the life and times they were written in, giving the reader a flavour of the past, thereby refreshing memories across communities and people. We hope this corpus of writings will provoke and sustain reader interest, and continue to connect The Community to it's rich, lively Heritage.
