English-Hindi / Hindi-English Thesaurus and Dictionary launched

Penguin Books India and Yatra Books have launched The Penguin English-Hindi/ Hindi-English Thesaurus and Dictionary. Compiled by Arvind Kumar and Kusum Kumar, the book was launched recently by Smt. Madhu Goswami, Deputy Secretary Hindi, Ministry of External Affairs. The three-volume Penguin English–Hindi/Hindi–English Dictionary and Thesaurus is billed as a landmark in bilingual lexicography. Today, just as more Hindi-speakers than ever before are eager to master English, a large number of Indians and non-Indians are learning Hindi through the medium of English. Global communication and educational systems today demand a bilingual dictionary and thesaurus that covers a wide spectrum of social and cultural terms, both Indian and non-Indian. This book, arranged thematically with two bilingual dictionaries and indexes and extremely easy to use, fits the bill well.
