Culturally, socially and environmentally conscious communities contribute to long term and sustainable growth and prosperity of their nation. NHP Centre is a humble effort to develop a framework of diverse, creative and integrated initiatives that aid in cultural progress and social consciousness of communities and considered as essential indicators for measuring the happiness quotient, growth and success of its members.
The Centre is a humble yet path-breaking effort to introduce an alternate culture of community work. The approach adopted by us in our work tends to be such where there are no missions to be served or milestones to be reached but only a humble journey to be made: where giving is not perceived as a charity but a responsibility; where one who receives is not recognised in any way smaller than the one who gives; where programs delivered are not listed as an accomplishment but a service; where engagements are not in the form of tutorials but as dialogues; and where youthful energy is reflected in actions, entrepreneurial acumen in decision making and humility in conduct.
Ours is an engagement of the equals!
The Institut français en Inde’s mission is to facilitate Indo-French exchanges through country festivals encompassing varied events at regular intervals so that peoples of our countries can get to know each other better, share and learn from each other.
By creating the Institut français, the French government has given the mandate to the same organization to promote French cultural action overseas, be it in the matter of artistic exchanges, promotion of French thought and ideas through the printed word or audio visual medium, of French language, and of French know- how via student, academic, researcher and scientific exchanges.
The dynamism of the IFI (Institut français en Inde) translates into action by the dedicated efforts of the Alliance Française network in India that represent local Indian organizations who help disseminate French culture, promote budding Indo French cultural exchanges and teach French across the Indian territory.
The Institut français en Inde is part of the huge cultural network of over 100 IFs (Institut français) worldwide working in close relationship with over 1000 Alliance Françaises. In India alone there are 16 Alliances Françaises, some with multiple campuses.

Lord Buddha attained enlightenment under the peepal tree. Newton made a path-breaking discovery below the apple tree. The mythical kalpavriksh (wishing tree) occupies a position of prominence in the Indian pantheon. True seekers attained knowledge through sources which sung in harmony with nature and throbbed with timeless wisdom like the mother who introduces her child to the world and through her knowledge, the little one perceives a world that waits to be discovered, explored and understood. We, at Wisdom Tree, continue this timeless tradition of sharing wisdom through our books with tremendous precision and care. Books, we believe, are as priceless as trees in life and publishing to us, is a mission to propagate the idea - 'Read more books and grow more trees'.
Ours is the zeal of fire, the passion to disseminate knowledge, to create a bridge between the source and sink of intelligence and ideally, take seekers along the path not tread before. We welcome you to be a part of the process on either ends of our supply chain and contribute to the nobility of our cause. Our philosophy is divine, our path noble, our mood upbeat and our progress, ecstatic.
For us, at Wisdom Tree, publishing is a passion and the process of it, an art. Our authors are the best in their spheres; eminent editors tenderly nurture our manuscripts and our proofs are comprehensively tested for quality. Our in-house production centre forms the backbone (pre-press, printing and post-press) of our quality control system. Our distribution network has one of the widest reaches in India.
We, at Wisdom Tree, enjoy creating books that are meaningful to you and hope each one of you derives as much joy reading them.

As India continues to stride into 21st century, rapid social, cultural, political and economic changes are resulting in the country. An important question that arises at this stage is what kind of future must we build and what legacy should we leave, for our children? The seeds of thinking on this subject must come from the literary minds of the country. Poets, writers, artists and other creative minds should assume a central role in imagining the “India of future” and compliment the effort of policy makers, academics and economists in shaping India into 21st century.
