Kosalananda Mahakavyam
New Bharatiya Book Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8187418036; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
As the Raghuvamsa in the form of Kavya literature rings with praises of Raghu's digvijaya, so also the palm-leaf manuscript kosalananda rings with the whole History of dakshina Kosala i.e. Ancient Chhattisgarh in the beautiful Sanskrit verse from which historians may collect enough pebbles on its shore to build the complete history of Chhattisgarh (1000-1664). The present Kavya was lying in oblivion and is being published for the first time. Though this Kavya history of chhattisgarh opens itself to the large numbers of lovers of Sanskrit throughout the world and at once becomes a part of the vast Sanskrit literature with a history of thousands of years. Kosalanand Mahakavyam is sthe first ever Sanskrit Mahak-avya (written in 1664 by Gangadhar Mishra) on the history of Kosala i.e. Chhattis-garh. There in on doubt that the keen student of the history of Chhattisgarh may find something substantial in the Mahakavya to feed his own cultural ambition in the domain of research and antiquities.Printed Pages: 207. 104058

11711 Hiranmay Karlekar
Bangladesh: The Next Afghanistan
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0761934014; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
In recent years, Bangladesh has experienced an alarming rise in Islamist fundamentalism. The world began to take serious notice of this after the grenade attack on the Awami League`s rally in Dhaka on 21 August 2004 almost succeeded in killing off the entire top leadership of the party. This book shows that terrorist acts such as this are part of a systematic attempt to destroy Bangladesh`s secular and democratic political parties, as well as its vibrant intellectual and cultural life, and to convert the country into a hardline Islamic one. The author further argues that the headquarters of Islamic terrorism is shifting from Afghanistan to Bangladesh, which he describes as a `soft` state with an ineffective government and police force, and which Islamist groups, with their organized and well-armed cadres, can easily dominate. Islamists are being systematically placed in key positions in government, and an Islamist state within a state is being built for the ultimate takeover of Bangladesh as the base for Islamist—including Al Qaeda and Taliban—operations in South and Southeast Asia. This lucid, hard-hitting and well-documented book analyses in detail the circumstances—historical, social, cultural and political—which account for the rise of violent Islamist fundamentalism in Bangladesh, a country known for its cultural plurality and religious tolerance. The author also discusses the chances of halting the process, through a determined and well-strategized effort by those committed to keeping Bangladesh a moderate and tolerant modern Islamic nation.

11716 Hiro G. Badlani
Hinduism: Path of the Ancient Wisdom
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8178224550; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Hinduism is the oldest surviving religion in the world. It has evolved from prehistoric times through various phases of ongoing development and includes religious and spiritual literature which is vast and diverse. This book provides a well groomed summary of all aspects of Hinduism in a simple and straightforward language. It includes 63 chapters spread over 367 pages. Chapters 1 through 18 discuss the origin of Hinduism and its scriptures, Hindu spirituality, Hindu code of conduct, soul consciousness, the divine path of virtue, and Hindu Trinity. Chapters 19 through 42 include topics such as teachings of Ramayana, Mahabharata, Bhagavad Gita, ancient philosophy of Yoga, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, teachings of Bhagavatam and spiritual teachings of some of the popular Hindu saints such as Vivekananda, Paramahansa Yogananda, Swami Chinmayananda and many other spiritual masters. Chapters 43 through 56 provide discussions on Hinduism and science, meditation, satsanga (holy company), Ayurveda, vegetarianism, Hindu wedding, Hindu symbols and icons, Hindu customs, festivals, interfaith issues and Hinduism and fine arts. The remaining chapters 57 through 63 include discussions on evolution of Hindu temples, a pilgrimage through India, Hindu temples in USA and rest of the world, and Hindu prayers. Message from Baba Hari Dass, Mount Madonna, Santa Cruz, California. 'Hinduism: Path of the Ancient Wisdom' gives the ancient history of Hinduism. The book is like a map of Hinduism, which shows from where one should start his or her spiritual journey, and where the journey ends. This is also a guidebook to those who don't know what Hinduism is, especially for those Hindus who are settled in foreign countries and have no knowledge of their own religion.Printed Pages: 412. 102042

11717 Hiroichi Yamaguchi and Haruka Yanagisawa (eds.)
Tradition and Modernity: India and Japan Towards the Twenty-first Century
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1997; 8121508053; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
To talk of modernization is a daunting task, much more when it comes to a comparison of countries like India and Japan. Being a collection of nineteen papers, ten Indian and nine Japanese, presented at the two Indo-Japanese seminars in 1990 and 1992 and revised, this book aims exactly at doing it. This is, to quote from the late Professor Sukhmoy Chakravarty, who was the moving spirit on the Indian side of those seminars, "the first of a series of dialogues" between the scholars of the two countries in social sciences and humanities. The papers cover the philosophical and religious expressions of modernization and its economic, technological, social, political, and international substance. They also cover the self images of India and Japan and the images of each other. Each subject is treated not isolated but in wider perspective. Together they represent the so far unprecedented attempt to introduce Japan to the Indian readership. Some water has flowed into the Indian and the Pacific oceans since those seminars were held. But this book will provide a solid ground upon which further and more sustainable dialogues can be held, and are actually being planned. This book is being published in commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of India's freedom. Printed Pages: 320. 002224

The Wisdom of Compassion: Stories of Remarkable Encounters and Timeless Insights
Three Rivers Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2012; 0593071824; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The Wisdom of Compassion offers rare insights into the Dalai Lama’s life as he interacts with remarkable people from all walks of life. In these deeply engaging behind-the-scenes stories we see not only the Dalai Lama at his most human, and most humane, but also the way he approaches the world with humour and optimism. As he empathizes with those who are suffering, and demonstrates the tangible benefits of practising forgiveness and compassion, the Dalai Lama reveals the many lessons he has learned, including how * his collaborations with leading neuroscientists, psychologists, teachers and students from around the world have taught him how to educate the heart; * his inspiring friendship with a blind Irishman, the only person he calls his hero, has taught him how one can overcome adversity; * through his encounters with illiterate grandmothers learning how to harness solar power for their communities, a beggar girl, and his soulmate, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, he has discovered how compassion can be translated into action. Enhanced by the Dalai Lama’s seven decades of practice and illuminated through captivating anecdotes, The Wisdom of Compassion can help readers to lead more fulfilling lives. The Dalai Lama also shows how, when we open our hearts and minds to others, we are on the surest path to true happiness. 037374

The Acquisition of Complex Sentences
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2004; 0521831938; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 228 x 152 Mm 
This book presents the first comprehensive study of how children acquire complex sentences. Drawing on observational data from English-speaking children aged 2 to 5, Holger Diessel investigates the acquisition of infinitival and participial complement clauses, finite complement clauses, finite and nonfinite relative clauses, adverbial clauses, and coordinate clauses. His investigation shows that the development of complex sentences originates from simple non-embedded sentences and that two different developmental pathways can be distinguished: complex sentences including complement and relative clauses evolve from simple sentences that are gradually expanded to multiple-clause constructions, and complex sentences including adverbial and coordinate clauses develop from simple sentences that are integrated in a specific biclausal unit. He argues that the acquisition process is determined by a variety of factors: the frequency of the various complex sentences in the ambient language, the semantic and syntactic complexity of the emerging constructions, the communicative functions of complex sentences, and the social-cognitive development of the child. • The first ever comprehensive study of how children acquire complex sentences • Based on observation of five English-speaking children between the ages of 2 and 5 • Looks at the acquisition of a broad range of different constructions, such as complement clauses, relative clauses, adverbials and co-ordinates Contents 1. Introduction; 2. A dynamic network model of grammatical constructions; 3. Towards a definition of complex sentences and subordinate clauses; 4. Infinitival and participial complement constructions; 5. Complement clauses; 6. Relative clauses; 7. Adverbial and co-ordinate clauses; 8. Conclusion.

Why has Christianity chosen to ignore its connections with the religions of the East, and to dismiss repeatedly the numerous claims that Jesus spent a large part of his life in India? This compelling book presents irrefutable evidence that Jesus did indeed live in India, dying there in old age. The result of many years of investigative research, Jesus Lived in India takes the reader to all the historical sites connected with Jesus in Israel, the Middle East, Afghanistan and India. As well as revealing age-old links between the Israelites and the East, the evidence found by theologian Holger Kersten points to the following startling conclusions: In his youth Jesus followed the ancient Silk Road to India. While there he studied Buddhism, adopting its tenets and becoming a spiritual master. Jesus survived the crucifixion. After the ‘resurrection?Jesus returned to India to die in old age. Jesus was buried in Srinagar, the capital of Jammu and Kashmir, where he continues to be revered as a saintly man. The tomb of Jesus still exists in Kashmir. The author, Holger Kersten, specializes in religious history. He studied theology and pedagogics at Freiburg University, Germany and has travelled extensively in the Middle East and India. He is the co-author of The Jesus Conspiracy. Printed Pages: 296. 029092

The Iliad

“Let me not then die ingloriously and without a struggle, but let me first do some great thing that shall be told among men hereafter.” In the final year of the siege of Troy, Chryses tries to ransom his daughter, Chryseis, who is held a captive by the Achaean leader, Agamemnon. As Agamemnon refuses to release her, Chryses beseeches Apollo, who inflicts plague on the Achaeans. When Achille, the Myrmidons leader, calls upon a council to discover the cause of the plague, Agamemnon is compelled to send her back. What happens as Agamemnon demands for Briseis, Achille’s captive; and enraged, Achilles refuses to the fight the war? With twenty-four thrilling books which celebrate and glorify war, Homer’s The Iliad is an exquisite composition.

Intuition: Its Nature and Uses in Human Experience
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8120817729; Hardcover; New; New; 
Given the foregoing view of intuition, as it is generally understood, the challenge which has been set before the author in writing this book was to legitimate the belief in and use of intuition by presenting an explanation as to its nature and uses which is not at odds with what rigorous thinkers take knowledge to be. The core idea of that has been take in intuition to be in the writings of Sarvepalli RAdhakrishnan. Briefly, intuition, so viewed, is taken to be an integral process of the mind, which culminates in an act of insight. The process involves reasoning, but the insight in which the process culminates does not.Intuition, is not a form of knowledge; rather it is only one means to knowledge which together with reason, sense-experience, and revelation (in the Heideggerian sense) make possible knowledge and understanding. 102193

History of Mental Illness in India: A Cultural Psychiatry Retrospective
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8120833708; Hardcover; New; New; 
Examining “mental illness” in societies where different world views, thought worlds, and habit patterns prevail is ordinarily frowned by social scientists since it involves analysis of phenomena steeped in modern conventions of knowledge. This book contravenes this position giving reasons for and ways of circumventing social science scruples. It formulates and provides details about the system of healing of conditions of psychiatric interest that would have been found in ancient traditional and early modern period. It draws on the findings of Indian epidemiologists who have surveyed the prevalence and distribution of psychiatric disorders in modern and traditional settings of contemporary India. Their findings support the position that such conditions would have been found in earlier historical epochs. In the book, information from cultural anthropology is used to formulate ideas and a perspective that encompass salient cultural and historical parameters of India as a socio cultural entity which have stood the text of time. Emphasis is placed on how Indian culture, religion, morality, sociology, and philosophical psychology which shape the world view and habit patterns of Indian peoples everywhere and throughout millennia. This nexus of ideas constituted the ontology and epistemology about psychiatric conditions in earlier historical epochs. It shaped their form, content and meaning and it provided a basis for approaches to healing. Normal and not so normal conceptions about behavior and well being are discussed based on indigenous systems of meaning. The manner in which psychiatric conditions were and still are formulated in the compilations of Caraka, Susruta, Vagbhata, and Bela are reviewed and compared along with religious and spiritual viewpoints. Discussion of approach to conditions of psychiatric interest rooted in traditional Indian values provides a basis for critique and plea for broadening the scope and depth of the already vibrant and scientifically compelling psychiatry of contemporary India. The book aims to make modern psychiatry more responsive to India’s understanding of the human condition.Printed Pages: 723. 102672

An Introduction to Vedic Astrology: Spiritual Science of the Ancients
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1999; 8121206677; Hardcover; New; New; 
No doubt, today there is a resurgence of interest in the West towards the Spiritual sciences of which Astrology is most prominent. Unluckily, in spite of this in West, it is viewed as a purely esoteric science, without a basis of Scientific understanding, hence misunderstood. Ironically, most of the people have little (or no true) Knowledge of this Holy science, thinking it to be a fantasy. The Author accepts this fact that Vedic astrology is not only extremely accurate in helping an individual to understand what his or her future will be during this lifetime, but also gives an understanding as to the true Nature of matter and spirit, allowing knowledge to be gained of who we are and how to achieve success on all three levels, i.e. physical, mental and spiritual. The main Purpose of the author to prepare this Study is to teach how to actually cast horoscopes, rather than simply as an aid to understanding a chart. Having your Horoscope done it should help you to make the right choices in life to gain success in all you desire.The author has divided this study into three sections. First section is concerned with the practical applications of Vedic astrology in different areas of life, the second section gives descriptions of the characteristics and representations of the planets, signs, houses and stars and the last section tells about the remedial measures to help Balance disharmonic influences within the horoscope.Printed Pages: 230. 105900

Ahmedabad: Shock City of Twentieth-Century India
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125046615; Hardcover; New; New; 
At least three times in the last century Ahmedabad was a “shock city”, an arena in which developments of national importance took place first and most intensely. Gandhi led India’s independence struggle; Ahmedabad was his home. He and his fellow citizens, together, honed their strategies for national freedom and for urban development. Immediately after Independence, as India began its modern industrialization, Ahmedabad’s textile magnates entered into multinational agreements to expand into new entrepreneurial directions based on chemicals and pharmaceuticals. They also brought to Ahmedabad such modern institutions as the first Indian Institute of Management, the National Institute of Design, and the Physical Research Laboratory. They chose to work with the Textile Labour Association, enabling that Gandhian union to flourish as a model for all of India, and later to give birth to SEWA, one of India’s most important women’s organizations.Printed Pages: 348. 101813

India China Boundary in Kashmir
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 8121208262; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Kashmir section of the northern boundary is the heart of India?s boundary dispute with China. That is because Ladakh, of which the contentious Aksai Chin is a significant part, and Gilgit that stretched to the Little and Taghdumbash Pamirs, are central to India?s economic, political and military interests. Over these could run a distinctly possible autobahn or even a rail road to provide India her own commercial and political access to Central Asia. But then so are Tibet and Xinjiang, along the boundary, to which roads run from Ladakh and Gilgit, central to China?s interests. Therefore the eyeball to eyeball confrontation on the boundary for 50 years. The central and eastern sectors of the northern boundary are only pawns, an ultimate trade off, for Aksai Chin when time, China feels, is propitious for her. The boundary dispute is accentuated by an escalating economic and political rivalry worldwide between the two countries. This volume debunks many notions about the boundary dispute, delves deep into its different aspects to give a blow by blow account of as to how and why a conflict arose over the boundary. So also of the cloak and dagger diplomacy of Britain in Jammu and Kashmir State from day one it was born on 16th March 1846. Printed Pages: 344. 111530

Lynsdale Raj
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 9789383098583; Softcover; New; 
John Lynsdale was born to be the King of England. Deprived of his birthright by a weak father and a scheming woman, John follows his repetitive dream to India, a land of opportunity riven by little men squabbling for power. In Britain, too, the restless Scots want their own king, the common people are miserable and the hostile kingdoms of Europe are a looming threat across the narrow English Channel..John Lynsdale’s world, 300 years ago, was much like ours today. This is the story of his adventures, the intrigues he faced in the multinational East India Company, his many loves and mystical awakening.In Fort St. George, Madras, he encounters the cold, ruthless, Norbert Kline and, together, they are besieged in a monsoon-drenched fortress and emerge victorious. But when he falls in love with the beautiful Armenian woman, Ann Hawkenian, the petty-minded expatriates in the Fort spurn him for choosing a ‘country-born’ wife. Lured to Calcutta by a suave mercenary agent, John Lynsdale and Ann then set off to find their dream kingdom in the Himalayas. This is John Lynsdale’s swashbuckling story, but is his story History? Perhaps. Sometimes fact and fiction converge curiously.Printed Pages: 288. 106550

Intriguing India: The Alluring North
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 8192091279; Softcover; New; 
What is the origin of the fear that a monster lies beneath the surface of the high, blue, lake of Pangong Tso? Who was the Englishman who carved out his own kingdom in the Himalayas? What gourmet dish was created by a ruler to feed his famished subjects? What is the epic tale of the white shrine where the weapons of a martial saint are revered?This is not a travelogue, or a guide book, or even a retelling of ancient folklore. It is a little bit of all three. It is a conversation with two well informed people who have travelled, and questioned, and analysed. They are convinced that every legend, every custom has grown out of a hard core of fact, a historical event whose impact was so great that it was branded into the racial memory of the community. It then became encased in multiple layers of myth.Printed Pages: 172 with 105 colour photographs. 106614

Intriguing India: The Historic South
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 9789381523414; Softcover; New; 
In their travels around southern India, Hugh and Colleen Gantzer look beyond history. What is the link between Daroji in tropical Karnataka and the mysterious beast that prowls the snowy wastes of the High Himalayas? Why were boulders carved as temples of varied architectural styles in an ancient port? Did an extreme rural sport in Tamil Nadu originate thousands of years ago in the Mediterranean lands? Did supermen walk the earth in the sixth century BC and has the image of one been captured in stone? This is not a book about history or archaeology or anthropology or any of the other very specialized sciences concerned with delving into the past, weighing and measuring it all, and presenting it as the mind of the historian sees it. History is, too often, his-story: the view of a specialist conforming to the rigours of his profession. The Gantzers ask you to join them as they let their intuitions roam freely to unravel the mysteries of Intriguing India.Printed Pages: 180 with 121 colour photographs. 106615

They discover an intriguing world: a crater lake dug by a Thing from Outer Space; a cool, green, hill-station where no cars are allowed; deep wells that are beautifully sculpted water pavilions; the only wilderness in the world where the rare Asian Lion still roams free; a walled town in the desert with curiously painted houses; a sacred city where Time is worshipped.This is not just a travel guide. This is an informal conversation with two people who like discovering new places, having new experiences in old places, asking questions, and giving their own, often provocative, answers.Printed Pages: 208 with 210 colour photographs. 106616

Tantra: Sex, Secrecy, Politics, and Power in the Study of Religion (Second Edition)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; Second Edition; Softcover; New; 
A Complex body of religious practices that spread throughout the Hindu, Buddhist, and Jain traditions; a form of spirituality that seemingly combines sexuality, sensual pleasure, and the full range of physical experience with the religious life-Tantra has played a central yet conflicted role in the Western imagination ever since the first "discovery" of Indian religions by European scholars. Always radical, always extremely other, Tantra has proved to be a key factor in the imagining of India. This book offers a critical account of how the phenomenon came to be. Tracing the complex genealogy of Tantra as a category within the history of religions, Hugh B. Urban reveals how it has been formed through the interply of popular and scholarly imaginations. tantra emerges as a product of mirroring and misrepresentation at work between East and West-a dialectical category born of the ongoing play between Western and Indian minds. Embracing historical detail, textual analysis, popular cultural phenomena, and critical theory, this book shows Tantra as a shifting amalgam of factasies, fears, and wish fulfilment, at once native and other, that strikes at the very heart of our constructions of the exotic Orient and the contemporary West.Printed Pages: 388. 102326

11794 Hugh Kearney
The British Isles: A History of Four Nations
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 1995; 052148488X; Paperback; New; 
This is a unique account of the British Isles from pre-Roman times to the twentieth century, distinguished by its stress on the fact that English history forms only part of a wider 'history of four nations.' To ignore this wider dimension is to distort our view of the past and hinder our understanding of the present. Wide-ranging, the book transforms and challenges traditional accounts of what constitutes national history. Printed Pages: 336. 008678
