12201 Harold Waldwin Percival
Thinking and Destiny: The Descent of Man, The Eternal Order of Progression
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8120817834; Hardcover; New; New; 
In Thinking and Destiny, something new, although older than time, is now made known to the world--about Consciousness. The information is largely about the makeup of the human, where man comes from, what becomes of him; it explains what thinking is; it tells how a thought is created, and how thoughts are exteriorized into acts, objects and events, and how they make his destiny. Destiny is thus shown to be self-determined by thinking; and the process of re-existence and the after-death states are told in detail. A single reading of any one chapter of Thinking and Destiny brings rich rewards in new understanding of life`s puzzling mysteries. To read the entire book is to come nearer to knowledge of one`s destiny and how to shape it than is possible through study of anything previously written in the English language. Both the casually curious glancer at books and the most avid seeker for knowledge will be intrigued by the index, which lists more than 400 subjects in Thinking and Destiny, and by the fifteen chapter headings in the Table of Contents, which identify the 156 sections. The Foreword contains the only pages in which Mr. Percival uses the first personal pronoun. Here he relates some of the amazing experiences through which he was able to grasp the knowledge he transmits, and to acquire the ability to do so.Printed Pages: 1044. 102210

12202 Haroon Khan Sherwani
Muslim Political Thought and Administration
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1981; 8121501962; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This is the most comprehensive study of the political theories of Muslim thinkers. His survey of Muslim political thought begins with the Ideal State as depicted in the Quran, and provides an insight not only into the working of the political mind of some of the most eminent Muslim thinkers but also gives a running commentary on the working of the political institutions under which they lived in order to find out whether there was any link between their political ideas and the atmosphere in which they flourished. Since it was first published in 1942, the learned author has revised it several times, including a mass of new data and a number of explanatory notes in order to make the book more comprehensive, instructive and equally useful to the student and the scholar. This scholarly work is, in fact, interesting and thought provoking. Printed Pages: 228. 017189

Terrain path optimization using the connectivity graph approach applied to GIS data Structures
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2009; 9514292391; New; 
The main objective of this dissertation is to investigate alternative methods for converting GIS data representing terrain traversability conditions into a connectivity graph representation, enabling the determination of optimum terrain traversal paths, and implement them in the GIS environment. In addition to implementing variations of the conventional grid-based approach, an alternative grid-based method as well as a vector-based method for terrain path optimization is proposed and implemented in this study. Furthermore, special emphasis is put on the post processing of terrain paths. 115231

Kummat Kuvat: Näkökulmia valokuvan Kulttuureihin
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2016; 9522227366; New; 
Käsityksemme modernista elämästä on teknologiaa, erikoistumista ja tulevaisuuteen tähyävää kehitysoptimismia. Siihen sisältyy kuitenkin muutakin: särmikkäitä fantasioita ja kuvaoikkuja – kaihoisaa kumman kaipuuta. Kummat kuvat syventyy yhdeksässä artikkelissaan modermin kuvakulttuurin unohdettuihin varhaisvaiheisiin. Lukialle avautuu näköalapaikka marginaalin tuntumassa: valokuvien ja postikorttien äärellä, viihteen ja taiteen rajamaastossa. Aikakausi, jonka historiankirjoitus on pukenut rationalismin kuosiin, paljastaa salaisen viehtymyksensä fantasiaan, poikkeavuuksiin ja eri taiteiden välimaastossa viihtyvään visuaaliseen magiikkaan. Kummat kuvat havahduttaa ja saa pysähtymään kuvien eteen. Nykyajan digitaalisessa kuvavirrassa tekee hyvää muistella sadan vuoden takaista visuaalista murrosta – aikakautta, jolloin kuvia tuotettiin villimmin kuin koskaan aikaisemmin. FT Harri Kalha on taidehistorian ja sukupuolentutkimuksen dosentti Helsingin yliopistossa sekä visuaalisen kulttuurin tutkimuksen dosentti Turun yliopistossa. Printed Pages: 280. 114237

Muodon Vuoksi: Lasin ja keramiikan Klassikoita
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2013; 9522224022; New; 
Muodon vuoksi kertoo suomalaisen muotoilun sankaritarinan elävästi, historiaa ja esineyksilöitä kunnioittaen. Kohdevaloihin asettuvat innovatiivinen muotokieli, tekniset oivallukset ja taiteelliset ihanteet: esineet muuttuvat elämyksiksi. Muotoiluklassikot henkivät aikaa, jolloin sisukas valtio nousi sodan raunioista suunnannäyttäjäksi. Kansallinen yhteishenki ja usko kauniimpaan tulevaisuuteen kirjattiin näkymättömänä viestinä aikakauden esineisiin. Kirjaan valittujen teosten myötä lukija pääsee samalla kurkistamaan maailmanluokan yksityiskokoelmaan, jonka ovet ovat tähän asti pysyneet kiinni. Printed Pages: 335. 114255

Tom of Finland: Taidetta seksin Vuoksi
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2012; 9522223719; New; 
Maailmalla tunnetuin suomalaistaiteilija Touko Laaksonen alias Tom of Finland tavoitti töillään mittavan kansainvälisen yleisön. Harri Kalha sukeltaa uusimmassa teoksessaan Tom of Finlandin häkellyttävään kuvamaailmaan. Kuvien kautta avautuu värikkäitä näkymiä seksuaalisuuden, taiteen ja homokulttuurin historiaan. Kirjoittaja johdattelee lukijan kädestä pitäen kohtaamaan korskeiden kuvien haasteen, ja huomaa samalla kysyä: onko valtavirta kesyttänyt alakulttuurin kuvat? Printed Pages: 214. 114270

Tapaus Havis Amanda
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2008; 9522220450; New; 
Helsingin kauppatorilla syyskuussa 1908 yleisölle paljastettu Ville Vallgrenin Havis Amanda herätti hilpeyttä, mutta myös oudoksuntaa ja suoranaista kauhistusta. Jyrkimmät vastustajat vaativat tekeleen poistamista. Mihin raju vastustus perustui? Mitä kaikkea yksi taideteos kertoo ajastaan ja sen arvoista, kauneusihanteisiin kätkeytyvistä ideologioista?

Tapaus Magnus Enckell tutkii kielen, taiteen ja seksuaalisuuden hauraita kosketuskohtia syventyen yhteen historialliseen tapausesimerkkiin, taidemaalari Magnus Enckelliin (1870–1925). Tuloksena on raikkaasti polveileva historiografinen tutkimus, joka purkaa kanonisoituneita mielikuvia Suomen taidehistoriasta ja yhdestä sen salaperäisimmistä ja kiehtovimmista hahmoista.

Kokottien Kultakausi: Belle Époquen mediatähdet modernin naiseuden Kuvastimina
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2013; 9522224723; New; 
Kokottien kultakausi tempaa lukijansa 1900-luvun alun Belle Époquen, ”kauniin aikakauden” pyörteisiin. Varhaiset naisjulkkikset olivat skandaalinkäryisiä seikkailijattaria, joiden epäsovinnaista elämää paheksuttiin äänekkäästi – ja ihailtiin salaa. Moderni naiseus tanssittiin maailmankartalle varieteenäyttämöillä. Se poseerattiin julki paheellisissa parrasvaloissa, joiden hämärässä loisteessa tarkentui myös suomalainen naisihanne. Kokottien kultakausi nostaa esiin nämä historian unohtamat sankarit. 1900-luvun alun orastavaa julkkiskulttuuria tarkastellaan niin kuvataiteen ja kaunokirjallisuuden kuin teatterin, tanssin, muodin ja median näkökulmista. Keskiössä on miljoonayleisön tavoittanut valokuvateollisuus, joka teki kohteistaan globaaleja modernin elämän ikoneita. Printed Pages: 354. 115492

Nasal Motifs in Maya Iconography
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2006; 9514109945; New; 
The book covers all media of artistic expression employed by Maya artists that have survived until now. This allows Harri Kettunen to explore Maya iconography in a radically different and much more profound way and to raise Art Historical questions concerning the development of styles and the representational qualities of artistic media. The application of this method and of research presented in this book can be used not only to define regional styles, artistic innovations, and the evolution of new ideas and ideologies. It can also be used to date and locate works of art with no or little understood archaeological context. This new methodology will have to be taken into account by all future scholarship in the field. Printed Pages: 780. 114304

Myrkyttäkää, Ruiskuttakaa, Hävittäkää: Ruotsalaisten ja Suomalaisten Maatalouden Ammattilehtien Kasvinsuojeluvalistus 1940-1980
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2000; 9517462115; New; 
Toisen maailmansodan aikana kehitetyt uudet kasvinsuojeluaineet olivat osaltaan vauhdittamassa tehomaatalouden läpimurtoa Euroopassa ja Pohjois-Amerikassa. Maatalouden ammattilehdistä tuli ensivaiheessa tärkeä kasvinsuojelutietouden levityskanava viljelijöille. Torjunta-aineista välitettiin pelkästään positiivista kuvaa aina 1950-luvun lopulle saakka. Luonnonsuojelutahojen ja kriittisten tutkijoiden kiinnostuminen kemiallisten kasvinsuojeluaineiden aiheuttamista terveys- ja ympäristöhaitoista pakotti ammattilehdet tarkistamaan kasvinsuojeluvalistuksen sisältöä ja tavoitteita. Kasvinsuojelukysymykset yhteiskunnallistuivat ja politisoituivat ammattilehtienkin palstoilla. Printed Pages: 211. 114061

Uncle Tom's Cabin

Published in 1852, Uncle Tom’s Cabinis an account of the trials and tribulations of the eponymous character and other slaves in antebellum America, and is a testament to the fact that literature can bring about social change.

Meticulously edited and annotated, this edition features a detailed introduction providing contextual and thematic information. The novel is further supplemented by two essays—a nineteenth-century critical response to the novel soon after it was published, and an erudite critical study by Kenneth Hada that presents a modern-day perspective.

C.G. Mannerheim's Chinese Pantheon
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 1993; 9519403671; New; 
Vapaaherra C. G. Mannerheim matkasi ratsain salaisissa tiedustelutehtävissä halki Aasian lännestä itään 1906–08. Matkan todellinen tarkoitus peitettiin kansatieteellisen tutkimusretken julkisivun taakse. Hankkeen tieteellinenkin anti oli merkittävä: mm. muistiinpanoja ja kansatieteellistä aineistoa. Zanzhoussa Mannerheim sai haltuunsa sarjan piirroksia kiinalaisista kansanjumalista. Kirja esittelee tämän harvinaislaatuisen kokoelman, kaikkiaan 443 piirrosta selityksineen ja kirjallisuusviitteineen. Printed Pages: 318. 115127

Matka Kiinaan: Tiedusteluraportti 1906-1908
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2013; 9522224618; New; 
C. G. Mannerheim teki vuosina 1906–1908 Venäjän yleisesikunnan toimeksiannosta matkan ratsain Aasian halki Pekingiin. Hän esiintyi matkallaan muinaistutkijan ja kansatieteellisen keräilijän roolissa, vaikka todellisuudessa toteutti vakoilu- ja tiedustelutehtävää. Mannerheimin matkapäiväkirja on julkaistu jo aikaisemmin, mutta matkan päätulos, hänen Venäjän yleisesikunnalle laatimansa raportti, on jäänyt tuntemattomaksi. Nyt tämä sotilasstrateginen tiedusteluraportti julkaistaan ensi kertaa suomennettuna ja Mannerheimin itsensä ottamilla valokuvilla kuvitettuna. Printed Pages: 240. 115503

Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 1998; 952515016X; New; 
Gustaf John Ramstedt (1873–1950) kuuluu merkittävien suomalaisten tiedemiesten joukkoon. Hän aloitti luotettavalla kenttäaineistollaan uuden ajanjakson altailaisten kielten ja kansojen tutkimuksessa. M. A. Castrénin luomalle perustalle Ramstedt rakensi vertailevan altaistiikan nykyaikaisena tieteenä. Suomalais-Ugrilaisen Seuran perustajan professori Otto Donnerin tuella Ramstedt teki tutkimusmatkoja mm. Mongoliaan, kalmukkien maille, Kaukasiaan, Kiinan Turkestaniin ja aina Afganistanin rajoille asti. Vuonna 1919 Ramstedt velvoitettiin lähtemään Suomen 1. asiainhoitajaksi Japaniin. Kymmenvuotisen diplomaatintyön ohella hän tutustui ja syventyi korean kieleen. Ramstedt oli kaikkiaan merkittävä ja monipuolinen humanisti, runoilija, diplomaatti ja tiedemies. Nyt julkaistu kirja kertoo mielenkiintoisesti hänen tapahtumarikkaasta elämästään. 115931

No One Would Listen: A True Financial Thriller
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8126527722; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This is the story of Harry Markopolos, the whistleblower who discovered that crimes against investors were being committed by Bernie Madoff, whose Ponzi Scheme would ultimately become the biggest and longest-running financial investment fraud in history. Madoff's impact, both financially on individuals and institutions, continues to send shockwaves across the financial system and represents a major failure to investigate by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the nation's top market copy. The unraveling of the Madoff investment fund will go down as the crowning story of an era that has ended with the most troubled, turbulent, and uncertain global economy. How Madoff was enabled, by investors and fiduciaries alike, is nothing short of breath-taking and spell-binding. But how Madoff was allowed to operate by the SEC, despite repeated written and verbal warnings by whistleblower Harry Markopolos, is something that can only be told Harry himself and his team of financial sleuths.Printed Pages: 368. 104762

Indian Foreign Policy: An Overview
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8125063145; Hardcover; New; New; 
India now plays an important role on the global stage. Its political clout has increased, along with its economic and military growth. Considered a balancing power in the Asia-Pacific region, it is also seen as a democratic ally in the West, even as it challenges it on issues such as non-proliferation or global trade. India’s rise in global politics has confounded policy-makers and observers alike. However, while India is more confident of its capabilities than in the past, it remains unsure of its role in the world.This book presents an overview of Indian foreign policy today. It looks at the range of factors shaping India’s foreign policy, from domestic politics to material capabilities, as well as India’s relations with the world and neighbouring countries. Key global issues, such as India’s role in international and regional organizations, nuclear proliferation, democracy, or climate change, are also discussed. In addition, “snapshots” focus on important issues such as the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) grouping and terrorism.Written by an expert in the field, Indian Foreign Policy will be a key resource for scholars and students studying Indian politics, comparative international relations, Asian politics, as well as globalization.

Radha: From Gopi to Goddess
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789383098064; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In tracing the evolution of Radha from that of a gopi to a goddess one traverses not only a span of several centuries, but travels through cultural divides, political dynasties and philosophical debates. She occupies a space which moves from the aesthetics of shringara rasa to the theology of shringara bhakti, from the madhurya of Pushtimarg Vaishnavism to the prema of Gaudiya Vaishnavism, taking in its stride the philosophies of Advaita and Dvaita, the traditions of Shakti and Shakta, she takes us from the devotional poetry of Bhaktikal to the courtly poetry of Ritikal and even beyond to the modern poetry of Adhunikkal. Radha is both kamini and ramani, desirable and beautiful and through her persona we understand the role of kama or desire in the workings of the human mind and especially in the aesthetics of shringara, she is both a gopi and a nayika and through her we feel the presence of Krishna in Vrindavana and the opulence of the Vaishnava Rajput courts, she is a devi in the temples of the Gaudiyas and through her we are able to worship Krishna, and finally she is even a kalankini or the defiled one and through her we are privy to the folk literature of Bengal and modern middle class psychology of the bhadralok. Radha: From Gopi to Goddess portrays in poetry and painting, dance and drama, sculpture and icon, songs and stories how Radha occupies a special place in sociology and psychology, aesthetics and theology.

Parijata Haran: Kusna Steals the Parijata
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8124608040; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Krishna Steals the Parijata (Parijataharana) is a collection of a few accounts, edited by Harsha V. Dehejia, on Krishna forcibly taking away Parijata from Indra, which finds expression through the paintings of different kalams. Christopher R. Austin relates this event to the citations and narrations in Mahabharata and Harivamsha, wherein the focus is on Krishna’s effort to appease his perturbed wife Satyabhama, by fulfilling her desire to have Parijata from Indra’s abode. Mahendra Kumar Mishra approaches this incident from Sarala Mahabharata angle. Here the narrative and episode are little different though the centre theme and characters remain the same. The third narrative is in Hindi by Narmada Prasad Upadyaya. He approaches this story from a different viewpoint that by forcibly taking away the Parijata tree from Indraloka, Krishna broke Indra’s Himalayan pride. The main characters in the episode are same here too: Krishna, Indra and Satyabhama. In the final article, Harsha V. Dehejia provides a visual narrative account of the event. The story looks almost similar to that of Austin with little more narration and a few additional characters. The sequentially given paintings tell the story faster than the literature. In a nutshell the book is an exemplar attempt to visually covey a well-known, well-rooted story where Krishna is the central character. Printed Pages: 52 with 54 coloure illustrations. 100302

Parul: A Love Story
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174369597; Hardcover; New; New; 
Praful is a Professor, a dyed-in-the-wool academic who is shaped by the life-denying philosophy of Shankara’s Advaita Vedanta. Parul, on the other hand, is a sensual, earthy woman who believes in the veracity of love and the reality of the many beautiful things that life offers. A chance meeting between the two leads not only to a romantic relationship spread over eleven purnimas, but becomes a dialogue between two philosophical systems, the Advaita of Shankara and the Madhurya of the Bhagvata Purana. As romantic moments between the two unfold, intellectuality interacts with sensuality, questioning the validity of each, and as Chaitra moves to Magh, a transformation takes place. As Harsha Dehejia weaves this romantic story, where meetings by the Parijataka and conversations underneath the Champa, are not only moments of shringara but introspections on the meaning of life, we hear and feel the sensuality of love as it merges seamlessly with the intellectuality of a philosophic discourse. In this heart-throbbing romantic relationship, there is the spiritual quest of ultimate reality along with the pleasures of the sound of the wind and the song of a bird. Metaphysical thoughts and tender feelings, evocative colours and resonant sounds, intoxicating aromas and patterned textures, myths and metaphors, intermingle in the hushed conversations of two people in love.

Radhayan: The Story of Radha through Myth, History and Fiction
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2018; 8124609012; Hardcover; New; New; 25 x 25 Cm 
Of all the mythic characters in the Hindu pantheon none is more enigmatic and evocative than Radha. Appearing for the first time in Jayadeva’s Gita Govinda, where she is the ultimate beloved, she traverses political dynasties, royal ateliers and social barriers to emerge as a consort of Krishna. Brought alive by poets, developing a colourful presence in the hands of painters, dancing through prosceniums and acquiring a lyrical life through songs, both classical and popular, Radha is present in homes and havelis, celebrated by the the samajika and the rasika, has a presence in temples and roadside shrines as a symbol of pure and eternal love. And yet there are so many questions about her life; poets differ in their portrayals of her, historians argue, dancers claim her through their interpretations and for the common person she is now a shringara rasa nayika and now a goddess. But Radha stands steadfastly alone refusing to be bound down by poets or potters, dancers or singers. Harsha V. Dehejia weaves an enchanting story of Radha with a multicoloured thread, where myth blends into history and fiction challenges reality and Radha emerges in all her poetic glory in this spellbinding story.Vijay Sharma and his team of artists bring Radha colourfully alive with miniature paintings, for it is there rather than sculpture that Radha resides. She is essentially kavyamaya, her origins are in the minds of poets, it is there that she grows, dallies and evolves. And while her voice is heard in songs and her footsteps resonate with dancers, it is in miniature paintings, through line and colour, that Radha comes alive as a multidimensional, many-nuanced paragon of love. This is Radhayan. Printed Pages: 95 with numerous colour illustrations. 116193

The Love Songs of Vidyapati
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8124607281; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Vidyapati (c. 1352–1448), called second Jayadeva in his lifetime, is immersed, charged and inspired by the love of Radha and Krishna. He wrote emotionally-intensive love songs in Maithili, for the queens of Shiva Simha, his patron, and the common folk. Though drawn inspiration from Jayadeva, more than him, Vidyapati presents in his poetry a rare, tender and sensitive understanding of Radha’s psyche. In his love songs Radha, not Krishna, is in the centre stage and through his nayika Vidyapati is reaching out to each and every woman in Mithila. Vidyapati presents his songs from a woman’s heart, and describes his nayika’s slowly awakening youth, her sensuous beauty, her coyish charm, her naïve innocence, her surrender to love and her anguish on being neglected. She is invariably sensual, spiritual, physical and emotional. Though she did not inspire painters of the time, she ruled the hearts of the people of Mithila. Vidyapati’s love songs are written in honeyed words and are sung with mellifluous notes in homes, fields, chowks and havelis, across eastern India. And thus he still rules their heart.This portfolio, based on the ten love songs of Vidyapati, presents lovely paintings on the varied love moods of Radha, the love queen. In doing so, different artists have displayed their dexterity in Jaipur, Caurapancashika, late Mughal, Manaku, Kishangarh, Jain, Kangra and Basohli styles.Printed Pages: 16 Leaves. 100343

Love Songs of Narsinh Mehta
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8124608032; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Love Songs of Narsinh Mehta is a commentary on Narsinh Mehta’s love songs. Narsinh (1408-65), a Vaishnava bhakti poet of medieval India, is considered as the adi-kavi of Gujarat. He is also regarded as a shringara kavi, a poet of romance. The quintessence of his bhakti is prem and his prem has inherent bhakti, and therefore his poetry is regarded as shringara bhakti kavya. Essentially shringara is the romantic celebration of the other, and when Narsinh's other is none other than Krishna, his shringara kavya becomes Krishna bhakti, where Krishna is both divine and human, at the same time. Singing for Krishna, Narsinh celebrates his swami through amorous verses and divine surrender like Jayadeva. He sat in a temple and relentlessly sang for his Lord, living through absolute poverty. Nothing made him more jovial than singing the glory of his Krishna. The only man for Narsinh is Krishna, and for the latter Narsinh is a woman at heart. Narsinh, through his songs, brings in the cue of all romantic feelings and moments, recreates the idyllic Vrindavana in one’s mind, and he returns that Vrindavana a Vaikuntha with the footfalls of his Krishna. Through this commentary, the author Harsha V. Dehejia introduces one to the fullness of Narsinh’s poems, thereby making one known to Narsinh in and out.

Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8174363025; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 9 x 11 Inches 
A Celebration of Love celebrates the romantic heroine in the Indian arts. It is a visually rich journey which takes us to opulent havelis and bucolic groves, temples and courtyards, where we meet kings and nobility and also artists and artisans, as we hear whispers of gopis and the footfalls of Krishna. We encounter the nayika in miniature paintings and temple sculptures, pothis and calendars, dance and music but above all hear resonances of her heart throbbing longingly in our own selves for ultimately the nayika in the Indian tradition is a paradigm of the perennial quest of mankind for a divine and transcendent love. At the heart of the many and varied artistic expressions of the romantic sentiment is the nayika or the heroine. Her various adornments and trysts, the many moods of her love realized through amorous moments of longing or belonging, her strong presence in the Krishna lore and equally in the Sufi narratives, her portrayals in the Ragamala and the Barahmasa traditions of poetry and painting, through the beautiful depictions in miniature paintings as well as popular arts, have captivated our attention through the many centuries of Indian artistic representations. Her footfalls have been heard in courts and temples, she has been celebrated by the raja and the praja, she has a presence in homes and mansions and her persona resonates in enchanted forests and groves. She is all this and more, but above all she is the epitome of perfect beauty and the paradigm of the seeker of ultimate reality. In these essays, she comes alive in all her splendour and radiance, she captures our attention through her sheer sensuality as she looks into the mirror and prepares for that special moment. She delights in the many romantic situations and brings alive the concept of bhakti shringara or a certain spirituality that can only arise from indulging in love, but above all she stands self-assured and dignified, whispering that not only is there truth in love but that love is truth. Harsha V. Dehejia, who has a double doctorate, one in Medicine and the other in Ancient Indian Culture, both from the University of Mumbai, India has a deep and abiding interest in Indian Aesthetics and especially in the artistic expressions of the romantic emotion. He is a practising physician, and Professor of Religion at Carleton University. He lives in Ottawa, Canada. Printed Pages: 304. 021797

Gods Beyond Temples
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2006; 8120829638; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The sacred in the Indian tradition is more an experience than a concept and goes much beyond the narrow confines of an organised temple or even a shrine. The gods of this tradition, as well as those who hold them sacred, are simple and unpretentious yet dignified and self-assured. Whether it is a tree that is held sacred or a naturally occurring stone that is reverred, a river that is the embodiment of divinity itself, an ancestor that is the embodiment of divinity itself, an ancestor that is worshipped, a fabric that is simply draped, a road side shrine on a busy street or a votive terracota horse that is lovingly made and offered, a narrative scroll that holds its audience spell-bound; here is religion at work that is as spontaneous as it is intense, charged with faith, fervor and commitment; now private and now shared, that forms an integral part of the lived lives of these common people, be they rural or urban, tribal or traditional. The rituals and practices for these deities are neither scripted nor canonized, but what they may lack in grandeur, erudition and ceremony, they more than make up in the faith and feeling that they generate. In a civilisation which has encountered majestic truths and erected grand temples, these sacred manifestations and expressions of the ordinary people tend to be sidelined or dismissed by scholars as well as the world at large, as minor or lesser gods worthy of curiosity but not of serious study, but it is important to remember that they have a beauty and presence of their own in the pluralistic Indian tradition.Printed Pages: 102064

Painted Words: Kangra Paintings of Matiram's Rasraj
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8124606129; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
No celebration of ritikavya can be complete until we have enjoyed the sonorous poetry of Matiram and the sensuous images of Purkhu. With well sculpted words and lyrical rhythms Matiram takes us into the rarefied world of the nayak and the nayika, their amorous exchanges, the sensuality of loving glances, the charged moments of romantic feelings, the heart throb of belonging, the poignancy of longing and above all the fulfilment of desire. Line by line and doha after doha, Matiram leads us into the emotionally charged world of shringararasa and for those of us who are chastened by harishringara we go from one level to another till we hear the flute of Krishna. And when we find that these sonorous words of Matiram have been brought alive by none other than Purkhu and his school of painting under the patronage of Sansar Chand of Kangra our joy is doubled and Matiram's words become visual poetry. In the hands of Purkhu words become lines, emotions take on a colour and desire becomes palpable through the magic of his kalam. Printed Pages: 176 with numerous illustrations. 036916
