Encyclopædia Britannica opens India Book of the Year 2004

Mumbai: This is a forthright and succinct insight to the year gone by… from the glory of successful sportspersons; to dig or not to dig with ASI, and walking the Taj Corridor; the gruesome attack on Andhra Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu; the unending telecom battles, ravishing Aishwarya Rai at Cannes, and Indian nightingale Lata Mangeshkar turning 75.

From breaking news, to in-depth special reports and expert opinions, it's all here in the India Book of the Year 2004 — A kaleidoscope of the events of 2003.

Very well illustrated and superbly planned, the 400-plus pages present a unique analysis of behind-the-scenes stories of all the developments that grabbed headlines in India this year. Designed on the lines of the Britannica Book of the Year (published annually in the US since 1938), the India Book of the Year 2004 (IBOY 2004) is Encyclopædia Britannica's endeavour, exclusive to India.
