In this book, author has tried to bring to the problem a worked-out theory of meaning as well as of the phenomenon of naming and reference. It suggests a way of fitting a theory of proper names into general framework. The importance of this study is for a better understanding of contemporary religion, history and culture. The compound, complex and phrasal place-names found in the twin districts of Raipur and Durg concern themselves with human coordination and commands of enterprising acts and are of great historical significance.

The book is a linguistic probe to look into the realms of the place-names in particular and names in general to formulate an opinion from the structural, semantic, linguistic, socio-linguistic and psycho-linguistic view-points. A leak of relatively more informations is traced out to discover the antiquity more precisely than history can afford.
