This book suitable for post graduates in Physics and Astrophysics aims at introducing the theory of general relativity as an important background for doing astrophysics.

Starting from a detailed discussion of the various mathematical concepts for doing general relativity, the book introduces the geometric description of gravity.

It gives a brief historical perspective to classical mechanics and electrodynamics making an attempt to establish the necessity of special relativity as propounded by Einstein extending to General Relativity.
