The book provides single year gender wise age tables of India starting from zero age up to the age of 100 completed years for the decades starting from 1881 to 2001, and projections to 2011 and 2021. The work based on census data. The book took two decades to complete; and 500 pages to tell about the tables. Some of the mathematical works that the author innovated and used do not appear in any textbook or other publication. The single year gender wise and complete age tables are assets, and they help several classes of users. For India, the book fills a long felt need of information. It does so in the same manner late respected Professor V. K. R. V. Rao filled India’s information gap in 1940’s with his national income figures; and Professor P. C. Mahalanabis did that with his writings on “floods” in the domain of the river Damodar. The book partly provides the demographic history of India. It estimates the out-migrating indentured Indian labourers before mid 1920’s, missing Indians due to famines in Bengal and Orissa, partition of India and exchange of population between India and Pakistan in 1940’s. There are revelations: India’s Baby Boom in 1950’s, and Mass In-migration in 1970’s are two of them.
