Vakils, Feffer & Simons Pvt. Ltd.

Vakils, through its associate company Vakils Feffer & Simons Pvt. Ltd. (VFS) publishes books that cover a range of subjects - from mythology and spirituality to cuisine, health and art. It is renowned for its attention to detail and high production value.

VFS has been in the forefront of the renaissance of Indian culture. It has demystified the gods and goddesses in the pantheon through the very successful Introduction series. Simultaneously, it has reached out to health-conscious Indians (publishing books on yoga, heart-disease, learning difficulties, child-care), and cuisine-lovers (with writers such as Tarla Dalal, Katy Dalal and Geeta Maini.)

In the recent past, VFS has also published books that deal with management, law, poetry and biography.

Several VFS books have been national bestsellers, and some titles have gone into as many as twenty-eight editions. Be it The Pleasures of Vegetarian Cooking by Tarla Dalal, or Dr. R. K. Anand's Guide to Child Care or Hinduism - An Introduction by Shakunthala Jagannathan, VFS books are known to excite critical praise and appreciation.

Over the course of its sixty year old history, VFS has collaborated with the University of Pennsylvania Press, publishing educational books on Indian history and art. In fact, 'Kishangarh Paintings' has won the Best Art Book award at an international book exhibition in Leipzig.

Besides publishing its own titles, VFS has also been involved in producing high quality art books for reputed Indian and international publishers such as Lalit Kala Academy, Bharat Kala Academy, The Prince of Wales Museum, The Smithsonian Institute, The American Institute of Indian Studies and Franco India Foundation.
