Unific Publishing House

Dr. Govind Singh is associated with UPH which actively encourages writers, researchers, “thinkers” and budding authors to publish their work. The UPH was founded in 2018.

India is know for its rich heritage of literature, both oral and written. Every Indian must be proud of the fact that scriptures, books and manuscripts were first written in the Indian sub-continent, at a time when civilization was not found to exist in other parts of the world. Every India must also embrace this rich tradition by educating oneself so one is able to better appreciate the work of our very knowledgeable, ancient forefathers. The next step is to create new literature for building and assimilating knowledge by standing on the shoulders of these giants. This is the motivation that drives the functioning of the Unific Publishing House (UPH).
