We are living in the era of accelerated scientific and technological progress for which computer and Internet are playing the major role. Keeping the essence of growth and necessity of ancient knowledge, this book lays down the principles of designing websites using our ancient Vedic concepts of Vastu Shastra to enhance our growth on the net. This book deals with a very new subject – Web Vastu, which is a fusion of the modern computer science with the Indian ancient science of directions i.e., Vastu Shastra. The world comprises five basic elements (Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Space), also known as the Paanchbhootas. Similarly, every website has five elements and any disturbance in any of these established elements can affect the performance of the website business directly or indirectly and this is what is introduced in this book.

John Fowler was an interior decorator who set fashions and changed tastes. The English country house style, which he developed with Sibyl Colefax and Nancy Lancaster, his partners in the firm of Colefax & Fowler, has proved a source of continuing inspiration to decorators and home-owners on both sides of the Atlantic and indeed across the world. Today, a hundred years after his birth, his influence is almost as powerful as it was in the mid 20th century, when he was working on many of Britain's finest and most famous houses, including Uppark, Chequers and Buckingham Palace, as well as dozens of more modest projects. Fowler's style has been so widely imitated that it is easy to forget what an innovator he was. In the 1930s and 1940s his style was a breath of fresh country air, sweeping away heavy velvets and damasks in favour of crisp cotton chintzes, replacing glossy mahogany with painted Regency furnishings, elaborate porcelain and glitzy ormolu with modest pottery and painted tin. Even after the war, when he came to specialize in the decoration of architecturally important interiors, he continued to prefer 'humble elegance' and 'romantic disrepair' to pomposity.
