12001 Indrani Sanyal
Modality, Essence and Possible Worlds
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8192570266; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This volume includes ten essays written by Prof. Indrani Sanyal in different phases of her long academic career. Essays collected in this volume document the author’s attempt to negotiate with some of the unmitigated issues frequently raised, debated and discussed in the domain of Anglo-American Analytic Philosophy. Viewpoints of some of the major philosophers like W.V.O. Quine, Ruth Barcan Marcus, Pranab Kumar Sen, David Wiggins and Ludwig Wittgenstein along with many others have come up for discussion and elaboration. The first six essays of this volume deal directly with the issues relating to modal logic, quantification, essence and possible worlds. In the next three essays, the author has discussed the viewpoints of the earlier Wittgenstein and later Wittgenstein on logical space, limits of language and the nature of understanding. The last essay of this volume concentrates on the idea of structural universals and debates centring its feasibility. The book has been written in a clear and lucid language without forgoing the required technicalities of the subject matter. Anybody interested in Philosophy in general and Philosophical Logic and metaphysics in particular will find the volume to be interesting. Scholars and researchers will be definitely benefitted by this volume. Printed Pages: 292. 107455

12002 Indrani Sanyal
Through the Lens of Dharma-Ethics
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8192611426; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 22 Cm 
Notwithstanding the profound and vast dimension of the concept of Dharma as such, Through the Lens of Dharma-Ethics, the author has endeavoured to put forward some of the metaphysical affirmations on which the feasibility of Dharma-Ethics as a discipline reposes. This volume primarily concerns itself with the elaboration and analysis of the Vaidika ethics as one of the exemplars of Dharma-Ethics, to answer the basic question as to why should one be moral.An attempt has been made in this volume to rearrange and reformulate the answer by discussing the concepts of Dharma and its allied concepts, different kinds of karmas - prescribed for the individuals, the fourfold scheme of purushartha, psychology of human volition, roles of different psychological traits, nature of motivational force conveyed through the imperative statements and many other relevant issues.A sustained analysis has been carried out to explain the sense of transcendence of the empirically existent, in terms of abhyudaya, mukti for which this Dharma-Ethics is a supportive ladder. “If there is hope for man, why should there not be hope for mankind?” possibility of this sort has also been addressed. The human-centric Dharma-Ethics has been deciphered as a description and also as a prescription for the embodied humans with their various sort of indebtedness, about how they live and how they ought to live in the truth of Dharma.

12013 Indu Anand
Akbar the Aesthete
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8124607389; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
Mughal miniatures are a vivid account of the cultural, sociopolitical scenario of the Mughal era. Jalal-ud-Din Muhammad Akbar, the most powerful Mughal emperor, was a great aesthete and promoter of arts. Eminent Persian and Indian artists thronged his Royal Studio and were encouraged to paint numerous emotive miniatures of style and substance, communicating highly complex narratives. These miniatures are a beautiful manifestation of human expressions, vividly encapsulating moments of history for posterity. This book combines the sources and methodology of history and art history of the Mughal era, and is an analysis of a select group of paintings of Akbar's reign. The miniature paintings incorporate a wide variety of rich, vibrant and varied themes, ranging from durbar scenes, depicting Akbar in different moods and forms, the princes and nobles in their finery, hunting and battle scenes, elaborate scenes of royal births, construction scenes, ascetics, common man, and countryside scenes, to the flora and fauna. Individual analyses of these miniatures, shows the manner of their composition and the inherent value of their sociocultural content in a lively manner. These paintings became a passion and a diversion for Akbar, who had an innate aesthetic sense. However, there are hardly any true-to-life paintings of women of the royal seraglio. This book thus attempts to cover some images of femininity, whether it is of Queen Alanquwa, Akbar's mother, or of Madonna as sacred mothers, and women, per se, in different roles. These miniatures make one wonder how much these women contributed to the life of Mughal India. This unique volume, having given transliteration and translation of the original Persian text of the miniatures, provides an insight into Akbar as an aesthete, and will help academics and laymen alike in appreciating the beauty and history of Akbar's period.Printed Pages: 316. 100327

12017 Indu Shekhar
Sanskrit Drama: Its Origin and Decline
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1977; 8121502535; Second Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
The problems relating to birth and evolution of Sanskrit Drama have been engaging attention of scholars in East and West over 75 years. Surprisingly, except a few casual observations the scholars and critics, by and large, only played to the gallery by dwelling extensively on the achievements of the leading dramatists, ignoring vital information on the possible causes that led to early decay of ancient drama. Perhaps, hypnotized, by the all-round achievements of the Aryans, attention could rarely be focused on the role of non-Aryans and Dravidians in the evolution of dramatic and other allied arts of ancient India. Shifting the emphasis from the fixed and traditional belief of Aryan Supremacy, the author seeks to spotlight the non-Aryan elements which may have contributed to the establishment of Sanskrit Drama. His penetrating study of the subject also brings into focus various factors, including prejudices and evils of class-distinctions, which accelerated the pace of disintegration even before the drama was firmly rotted. It is entirely a new yet uninhibited approach to the problem and when judged against the background of recent discoveries in the field of Indus Valley Civilization and other well-preserved South Indian traditions, it offers an interesting study by casting a flood of light on the problem.

The Feast of Roses
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0143031538; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
The love story of Emperor Jahangir and Mehrunnisa, begun in The Twentieth Wife, continues in The Feast of Roses. Mehrunnisa, the first woman Jahangir marries for love, is now Empress Nur Jahan. He loves her so deeply that he eventually transfers his powers of sovereignty to her. But power and wealth do not come easily to Mehrunnisa—she has to fight for them. She has a formidable rival in the imperial harem, Empress Jagat Gosini, who has plotted against Mehrunnisa from early on. Beyond the harem walls, she battles powerful ministers who consider her a mere woman who cannot have a voice in the outside world. Mehrunnisa fits none of the established norms of womanhood in seventeenth-century India. She combats all her rivals by forming a junta of sorts with three men she can rely on—her father, her brother and Jahangir’s son Prince Khurram. She demonstrates great strength of character and cunning to get what she wants, sometimes at the cost of personal sorrow when she almost loses her daughter’s love. But she never loses the love of the man who bestows this power upon her Emperor Jahangir. Printed Pages: 504. 002730

12024 Infrastructure for Human Development
Madhya Pradesh: Human Development Report 2007
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0195689569; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
An enabling and supporting environment is important for human development as any other initiative in furthering growth and build equity. At the same time it means putting people at the centre of development, building their capabilities, and enhancing their opportunities. Infrastructure and human development are linked closely and basic infrastructure makes a significant impact on people’s development. For Madhya Pradesh, with its historical backwardness, creating infrastructure is a major challenge as well as a great opportunity. While implementing programmes, the Government needs to ensure that its policy priorities and investment decisions in infrastructure are guided by where it is required most—the marginalized citizen. This is the fourth report looking at human development in Madhya Pradesh, following the first report published in 1995. While the previous reports identified areas of concern and gaps in programme implementation, the Madhya Pradesh Human Development Report 2007 is an advocate of making basic infrastructure the priority. It further explores the deficit zones that need immediate attention for equitable growth in the state. 020918

12035 Institute of Social Sciences (Ed.) & Ashis Nandy (Frwd)
Re-imagining India and Other Essays
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8125041966; Softcover; New; 
Re-imagining India and Other Essays brings together a collection of writings that originated from annual lectures, organised at the Institute of Social Sciences, by leading economists, political and legal thinkers, sociologists, linguists and historians. Addressing a diverse array of themes, the essays are bound by a common thread—concern for humanity. This volume explores a wide range of issues as varied as—need for basic education, poverty, human development index, self-employment over wage employment, the apartheid regime in South Africa, the role of democracy in counter-striking terrorism, the function of multiculturalism in preserving solidarity of a nation, the rise of Hindutva and its ideological implications, and the relevance of Gandhian and Nehruvian ideals in shaping of modern India. Commemorating well-known economist Professor D. T. Lakdawala’s contributions in the contemporary context, the scholars emphasise on the need to replace profit maximisation by profit-making and social returns. As the global economy struggles with an unprecedented recession—which has led to millions becoming unemployed and small investors and pensioners losing their life-long savings—the contributors underline the importance of revisiting the social-political-ideological structure, which largely shapes our policy making.Printed Pages: 280. 101988

Perso-Arabic Sources of Information on the Life and Conditions in the Sultanate of Delhi
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1992; 81-215-0535-4; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
The present work is outcome of a search for fresh contemporary evidence about the life and conditions in the Sultanate of Delhi during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. Besides the contemporary Perso-Arabic works, the literary works produced under the patronage of the Sultans of Delhi and nobles also contain information about important institutions and scientific inventions and instruments that found their way into India along with the immigrants from Central Asia and the Middle East. In view of the paucity of source-material on the life and culture in the known political histories of the period, fresh historical information contained in the contemporary Perso-Arabic sources, hitherto unknown or neglected has been represented in this work in the translation with comments. The work will not only enlarge the understanding of the scholars, interested in the history and culture of India but also open new vistas for further research. Printed Pages: 216. 002297

The Laghukatha: A Historical and Literary Analysis of a Modern Hindi Prose Genre
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8121512352; First Indian Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
The book presented here is the first work of Western literary criticism to examine the Hindi Laghukatha—a modern Indian prose genre that has been published since the 1970s in Hindi newspapers and magazines and is characterized by its concise form (500 words on average) and socio-political agenda. The importance of the genre within the Hindi literary scene lies in the fact that the Laghukatha is based on indigenous genres which have been modernized. Whereas the Hindi short story and the novel are Western genres that have been appropriated and Indianised. A thorough investigation of around 280 primary texts accompanied by an evaluation of the relevant Hindi criticism gives a comprehensive literary analysis of this genre and its historical development. This allows, in conclusion, to delineate an “ideal type” of Laghukatha, suggesting a range of compulsory, desirable and optional features. English translations of almost fifty representative Hindi texts complete the picture and thus provide an insight into this genre so far unknown to a Western audience. Printed Pages: 356. 037050

The Koh-I-Noor Diamond
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174369279; Softcover; New; 
A courtesan had told Nadir Shah that the priceless diamond lay hidden in Mohammed Shah’s turban. Citing an ancient tradition, the victor demanded an exchange of headgear. At last the diamond was his. Or was it? Hastily he undid the folds… Wonderstruck at the gem’s size, brilliance and beauty, he exclaimed, ‘Koh-i-noor’! 1739: the gem now had a name. One fabulous diamond whose value could feed the entire world for two-and-a-half days. Four races: Indian, Afghan, Persian and English, whose destinies were inextricably involved with this gem. A Persian oilman’s son who went on to virtually rule Golconda and its vast diamond mines. A Mughal prince, hated by history, who was sinned against as much as sinning. Only an Indian or a Persian could tell this great story with all its nuances. Printed Pages: 212. 108570

Kinship Organization in India, first published in 1873, has become a standard work on Family Structure in India. The author, a distinguished anthropologist, has divided the country into different zones in accordance with the marriage practices followed in each. Her analysis of the southern marriage pattern, based on the chronological division of kin into older and younger kin rather than on the principle of generations, is an important contribution to Indian anthropology. This revised edition includes a new chapter which comprehensively surveys-property, succession and inheritance, topics of importance to all students of the subject. This book is in fact 'essential reading' for students of Indian social institutions. Printed Pages: 410. 017374

Yuganta: The End of an Epoch (Reissue)
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8125032282; Softcover; New; 
Yuganta studies the principal, mythical-heroic figures of the Mahabharata from historical, anthropological and secular perspectives. The usually venerated characters of this ancient Indian epic are here subjected to a rational enquiry that places them in context, unravels their hopes and fears, and imbues them with wholly human motives, thereby making their stories relevant and astonishing to contemporary readers. Irawati Karve, thus, presents a delightful collection of essays, scientific in spirit, yet appreciative of the literary tradition of the Mahabharata. She challenges the familiar and formulates refreshingly new interpretations, all the while refusing to judge harshly or venerate blindly.Printed Pages: 224. 101894

Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 1998; 0195646584; Paperback; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Medieval Indian history has gained much from recent researches, based on a more extensive and critical use of sources and directed towards the illumination of aspects of political, social, economic and cultural history that had previously been inadequately treated. The papers collected in this volume draw mainly upon work done at Aligarh, the principal seat of Medieval Indian studies today. They aim at exploring new themes without abating the rigour of the `orientalist' tradition. The period covered extends from 1200 to 1750, and the themes touched upon belong to agrarian relations, civil engineering, ruling-class and religion. There is also a translation from and notes on an important document dating to Aurangzeb's reign. Printed Pages: 234 with maps and tables. 033601

What India means may elicit different answers from people today. The answers might have been given a thousand, two thousand or three thousand years ago would have been possibly quite different. This volume explores how notions of India have grown: even as a geographical expression the notion (under whatever name) took time to form. Political factors and cultural diffusion both helped in the formation. Nor is the role of outsiders in looking at India as country with some identifiable features of custom, belief, and language, to be ignored. The different contributions in this volume bring out how the idea of India has changed as Indian civilization has developed and received various cultural streams. The contributors also essay the issue of India's transformation into a nation under the stresses generated by the colonial conquest, resistance and the influx of modern ideas. The volume closes with discussions how the future of the nation was conceived in the past and what message this has for the people of India today. Printed Pages: 280. 015716

The Girl from the Train
Harpercollins India Publishers Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 0529102374; Softcover; New; 
A sweeping international love story that celebrates the triumph of the human spirit over the inhumanities of war and prejudice. Six-year-old Gretl and her sister jump from a train bound for Auschwitz, her mother and grandmother unable to squeeze between the bars covering the windows. The daughter of a German soldier, Gretl understands very little about how her grandmother's Jewishness brought her first to the ghetto, then to the train, and now, to the Polish countryside where she wanders, searching for food and water for her dying sister. Soon, Gretl finds refuge with Jakob, a Polish freedom fighter, and his family, where she is sheltered until the end of the war. Gretl is then sent away to a new life, a new name, and a new faith in Apartheid-era South Africa. As she comes of age in this strange place, she confronts its prejudices as she hides the truth of her past from her new family. When Jakob makes his way to South Africa many years later, Gretl and Jakob are reunited in a love story that transcends time and distance and survives the ravages of hatred and war.
