Indian Air Force: The Case For Indigenisation
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904497; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Just think: the last combat aircraft designed by the 74-year old HAL (Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd) with its expansive infrastructure was in the 1950s - and it was an excellent aircraft. Thirty years later an ad-hoc, interim institution called ADA (Aeronautics Development Agency) was set to design the LCA (Light Combat Aircraft) under the DRDO management. Thirty years later the aircraft has yet to enter service although the Indian Air Force has ordered 40 aircraft knowing they do not meet the qualitative requirements set in the early 1980s, leave alone the 21st century! Even the primary trainer for rookie pilots has just begun to be imported. Obviously something is wrong for a long time; and obviously it is a systemic problem.This volume sets out to historically examine and present a balanced understatement of the facts. Some of the leading experts in the profession of aerospace identify the problems. The reader is left to form his judgment and what appears an obvious solution. The Air Force is the most concerned stakeholder in the quality and quantity of military aircraft; but it seems to have been left on the sidelines in the process of to be criticised as being against indigenisation. We recognise that India is way behind the developed countries and China now, in design and development of military aviation. We dont have to go far to find the way ahead. Ninety-five percent of the Indian Navys warships and submarines are designed and manufactured in the country (tough many systems inside, like its missiles, may be acquired from the best in the world). The reason is starkly so simple that South Block itself does not notice it! Naval Head Quarters contain within its organisation under the leadership and the Chief of Naval Staff, the Directorate of Naval Design as well as the Controller of Warship Production besides the other supporting organisations like WESEE etc. Hence when the indigenous INS Delhi sailed out in the 1990s, the international community began to look at Indian Navy with new respect. Why cant similar system be established for the Army and the Air Force? Read the volume to ask your questions and mull over possible solutions.Printed Pages: 280. 104327

Asian Defence Review 2012
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904565; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
With the shift of global power from West to East, we have entered the era of an Asia-centred century. The rise of China and India, the recovery and resurgence of Russia on one side and Japan on the other, and the nature of the international order are leading to enormous changes. These transformational changes in the military, economic and political dynamics of Asia are accelerating with the passage of time. Historically, changes in the international order and equations of power among national have been almost inevitably accompanied by conflicts and wars.The challenge ahead of the international community in general and Asian countries in particular would be how to ensure that this is avoided, and competition, so necessary to shaping the future, is managed below the levels of armed conflict. This is crucial for most countries like India so that their comprehensive national development can progress without adverse developments. In order towork toward such goals, it is necessary to look at security and military-related issues as objectively as possible.This volume, a resource base for the professional and the general reader, is the sixth in the series of the annual publication of the Centre for Air Power Studies under this title, which aims to fill a critical information and knowledge gap in current strategic literature dealing with military strategy, defence politics and trends in military capabilities that impact countries in Asia. In particular, it covers some of the important areas that affect Asian countries, with a focus on China, India and Pakistan, to provide the requisite regional balance.Printed Pages: 232. 104328

Essays on China
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789381904237; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The People’s Republic of China is not only a large country, spanning from the Pacific Ocean in the East to cover most of the Asian landmass till Central Asia in the West. The geographical spread is not the only challenge that China poses; understanding China poses a far bigger challenge. And limited transparency makes it that much more difficult. It has generally been accepted across the world that global power is shifting from West to East essentially due to the rise of China and India. Hence, there is a fundamental need for Indian scholars to study different aspects of China and its policies. Other parameters point toward the 21st century being much more of an Asian century. But history also tells us that Asia is the area where the longest wars have been experienced; where nine nuclear weapons states interact with each other; and where the challenges of human development are most acute. It is against this background that we have undertaken this venture to put together a collection of essays on China on various issues and from different perspectives. We hope that this approach would help the reader to choose the area he or she wants to look at more closely and grasp the essence of China and its future policies, especially in relation to India. I am grateful to the contributors for their Herculean efforts; but the errors and shortcomings are mine and I apologise for them. We are confident that you will enjoy reading this book.Printed Pages: 312. 104340

India-Russia Relations
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789381904053; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
There is an apparent global power shift from the West to the East, essentially due to the rise of India and China and, as a consequence, the US has called for greater presence in the East in the midst of a major economic crisis and huge defence cuts. Many, after the Cold War, considered the international order to be unipolar; however, the rise of India and China, with Russia, Japan and South Korea assuming significant roles, appears to indicate a shift to a polycentric global order. Hence, the Indo-Russia dialogue assumes critical importance in the 21st century as a result of new evolving power centres and the relative decline of some older ones. The proceedings of the seminar highlight the requirement of a new relationship based on the Indo-Russia framework rather than on the earlier Indo-Soviet model in the midst of the changing regional strategic landscape. The book also draws attention to the shift in the US policy in East Asia. The economic and military rise of China and India; the lacklustre economic performance of Japan; the emergence of India as a nuclear weapon power; and the relative decline of US credibility as a security provider have altered the strategic landscape of the region. China’s assertiveness and North Korea’s emergence as a nuclear power are challenging the US presence in the region and, therefore, forcing the US defence policy to ‘Look East’. This book brings out an exciting analysis of future Indo-Russia relations based on defence, civil nuclear energy, space and science and technology.Printed Pages: 120. 104345

The 15 Minute Heart Cure:The Natural Way To Release Stress And Heal Your Heart in Just Minutes a Day
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8126529865; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Stress activates a reflex in our body known as the fight or flight response which leads to a number of bodily changes. These bodily changes in response to stress are the invitation to participate in the heart-mind conversation, and when you learn to hear the conversation you can quickly call on the BREATHE (beginning, relaxation, envision, apply, treatment, heal, end) tool to stop stress in its tracks. The BREATHE technique combines two proven forms of relaxation guided imagery and breath work and puts a modern spin on ancient wisdom. Both of these techniques elicit the relaxation response which is opposite the stress response. When practiced regularly, like toning your muscles in the gym, you'll develop a special neural network that will help you focus and find a sense of calm when faced with one of life's unexpected stressful challenges. The BREATHE technique can be used to help heal and protect your heart as well as help you focus and concentrate. It has been used successfully in health, business, academics, and athletics.Printed Pages: 256. 104856

Droughts and Integrated Water Resource in South Asia: Issues, Alternatives and Futures
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8178298597; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Droughts have formed an inseparable part of South Asian history and culture, with tragic consequences for a region that houses the greatest number of the world’s poor. However, this volume challenges the popular conception of drought, which is presented as an absolute shortage-scarcity with respect to an implicit understanding of the sufficiency of water. It highlights the fact that while available water supplies may be a given quantum, droughts are differentially experienced, politically inspired and socially constituted. It emphasises that the relative water scarcity needs to be appreciated, and argues that water scarcity means different things for diverse constituencies of water users. Policy prescriptions based on definitional premises will be flawed, as a misrepresentation of drought as merely water scarcity serves a political agenda. The editors and contributors of this volume critically evaluate the concept of drought, the way it is defined, its origin/derivation, and the purposes/interests it serves. This book is broadly divided into three major sections: the thematic section, country overviews, and case studies. Through these, it attempts to: - Understand the concept of drought. - Map diversity in drought situations across South Asia. - Identify responses to drought. - Outline viable options for more integrated approaches to drought policies and mitigation strategies. - Initiate a process of dialogue on a more comprehensive public policy for drought management. Comprehensive, thought-provoking, informative, and featuring new research data, this collection will provide policy makers and professionals with the opportunity to discuss and debate policies for sustainable livelihood support systems and drought management. It would also be an invaluable source of information for students and teachers working in the fields of Water and Natural Resource Management, Environmental Planning, Agricultural Economics, Rural Development, Public Policy and Public Administration.

Who Wants Democracy? (Second Edition)
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125045511; Second Edition; Softcover; New; 
The internal structure of Indian democracy has seen rapid changes since the implementation of the Mandal Commission recommendations in 1989. Who Wants Democracy? defines two important shifts in the polity. Even as the elite are increasingly stepping back from active participation, the less privileged classes are coming forward to engage vitally with democratic processes. Javeed Alam highlights how the poor return in every election to choose their representatives and what the voting patterns reveal about the links between regional voices and national unity, between the politics of community and the ideal of citizenship.This second edition includes a Prologue in which the author takes up certain theoretical issues. Discussing the democratic possibilities that modernity still offers, he says that the ‘presence of critique’ within modern thought can enable people to deepen their understanding of the idea of freedom.Printed Pages:188. 101943

The Red Sari: A Dramatized Biography of Sonia Gandhi
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789351941033; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
In the year 1965, Sonia Maino, a 19-year-old Italian student met a young Indian boy, Rajiv Gandhi, while they were both studying in Cambridge. She was born into a modest family in suburban Turin, where her father was a strict man who kept a close eye on his three daughters. Much to his chagrin, his painfully-shy middle daughter, of whom he was especially protective, fell in love with a man belonging the most powerful family in India. This marked the beginning of a story unlike any other – of a carefree Italian girl who was compelled to take on the murky world of rajneeti. With information sourced from close friends and colleagues, this book examines how Sonia’s courage, honesty, and dedication have made her a leader in the eyes of one-sixth of humanity. From her idyllic childhood to her passionate love affair, and from her days as a docile daughter-in-law to her current status of being the only Indian politician to have refused prime ministership – The Red Sari tells the story of an extraordinary woman whose dreams of home, hearth, and anonymous living were struck down by the hands of fate. This book examines the lives of the famous Nehru-Gandhi family set against the backdrop of the Bangladesh War, the Emergency, Operation Blue Star, and other events that have shaped modern Indian history. Author Javier Moro, a tireless investigator, writes the true story of a naïve young woman, confronted by the complicated and dangerous world of Indian politics and surrounded by the intrigues of a family that is both reviled and admired.

Vyayama Yoga: The Art of Dynamic Breathing
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 8178221748; Softcover; New; 
Vyayama Yoga is an energetic and curative exercise, easy to practise by any person of any age. Its exercises are easy to perform and provide great benefits, due to the continuous coordination between movement and breath. Even though it originated in ancient India prior to the time of Buddha, the persecution the masters and the schools were subjected to, firstly by the Muslims and then by the British Raj, helped contribute to its disappearance. The basis of its knowledge is found in many tantra texts, but only a few direct vestiges have survived and have been passed down through time, such as certain sculptures and carvings in some temples of India. This book will become a historical document, for being the first methodological Vyayama book ever published, not only in Spain, but in the whole world. The book will open the door to a universe of possibilities capable of improving and transforming the quality of life, health and well-being of the practitioner.Printed Pages: 162. 102302

13236 Jawahara Saidullah
The Burden of Foreknowledge
IndiaInk/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8186939318; Softcover; New; 
In 16th century India, when Nadee is swept away by the raging Yamuna, her life itself becomes a journey. A journey that takes her from her devastated village, Zameerpur, to the burning ghats of Kashi, to the courts of Agra and then on to the city of dreams, Fatehpur-Sikri. Even as her life intertwines with history barriers between the future and the past, the dead and the living break down until they becomes indistinguishable. In Akbar's Hindustan, Nadee is the eternal wanderer and soothsayer. She is doomed to love Kashi's unattainable king of the dead, the Dom Raja, to serve the legendary courtesan, Chhappan Chhoori, and then the almost mythical emperor, Akbar. When her new born son, the legacy of her love, disappears, she slides further into madness and despair as she searches desperately for her one link to herself. Nadee is blindingly aware of her destiny, though she remains powerless to change it. The Burden of Foreknowledge is a story that traces an unusual life, a life that brushes against greatness but remains inexorably trained towards its own ultimate fate. As the boundaries between reality and fantasy collide, the story reaches its climactic conclusion in the abandoned and desolate city of dreams, when Nadee finally achieves what has been predestined.

13238 Jawaharlal Nehru
Glimpses of World History: Being Further Letters to His Daughter, Written in Prison and Containing a Rambling Account of History for Young People
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0143031058; Reprint; Paperback; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
On New Year's Day, 1931, Jawaharlal Nehru began a remarkable series of letters on the history of the world to his daughter, Indira, then thirteen years old. Over the next thirty months, Nehru wrote nearly two hundred letters in this series, which were later published as Glimpses of World History. With its panoramic sweep and its gripping narrative flow, all the more remarkable for being written in prison where Nehru had no recourse to reference books or a library, Glimpses of World History covers the rise and fall of empires and civilizations from Greece and Rome to China and West Asia; great figures such as Ashoka and Genghis Khan, Gandhi and Lenin; wars and revolutions, democracies and dictatorships. An enduring classic, this book is dazzling testimony to the breadth of Nehru's world view, his grasp of the lessons of history, and of the forces and personalities that shape it.

Written over five months when Jawaharlal Nehru was imprisoned in the Ahmadnagar Fort, The Discovery of India has acquired the status of a classic since it was first published in 1946.

An Autobiography
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0670058025; Reprint; Hard Cover; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
Jawaharlal Nehru's life was closely intertwined with the history and destiny of modern India. His Autobiography, written between 1934 and 1935 when he was in prison, is more than the personal story of an individual—it is also an account of the political awakening of a nation, its struggle for freedom from British rule, and its search to reshape itself as a modern society, rid of the cultural and economic shackles of the past. Through this narrative, written with extraordinary eloquence and honesty, and illuminated with vibrant descriptions of Mahatma Gandhi and other leaders of the national movement, emerges the portrait of the author himself—a complex and introspective personality with a brilliant and questing mind, a deep love of nature, an engaging zest for life and, above all, a passionate commitment to democracy and secularism.

Letters for a Nation: From Jawaharlal Nehru to His Chief Ministers (1947-1963)
Penguin Books India Pvt. Ltd.; Delhi, India; 2014; 0670087726; Hardcover; New; New; 
In October 1947, two months after he became independent India’s first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru wrote the first of his fortnightly letters to the heads of the country’s provincial governments – a tradition that he kept until his last letter in December 1963, only a few months before his death. Carefully selected from among nearly 400 such letters, this collection covers a range of themes and subjects, including citizenship, war and peace, law and order, national planning and development, governance and corruption, and India’s place in the world. The letters also cover momentous world events and the many crises and conflicts the country faced during the first sixteen years after Independence. Visionary, wise and reflective, these letters are not just a testimony to Nehru’s statesmanship and his deep engagement with every aspect of India’s democratic journey, but are also of great contemporary relevance for the guidance they provide for our current problems and predicaments.Printed Pages: 400. 103396

The Maverick Republic
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174362134; Softcover; New; 
An alarming paradox emerges from witnessing prevalent national currents over the past three decades. The ominous paradox is that despite the demonstrable political wisdom of the humble voter and the valiant attempts of the common citizen to seek a semblance of material progress and social equity, those with money, power and influence have relentlessly pushed the country into a wildly individualistic quagmire of greed, self-indulgence and cruelty. A country where there are no standards, no rules or principles to carry out even the simplest transaction, where everything is permissible, where anything goes. The largest democracy has become The Maverick Republic. Printed Pages: 240. 108572

Crafts Atlas of India
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8189738372; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 24 x 30 Cm 
Mapping India’s crafts was a mammoth task that took eleven years. During this period, many new crafts were born, skills rejuvenated and some may have languished and faded away. The nature of crafts production in India is both ephemeral and resilient. India’s crafts journey resembles the progress of a river from the mountains to the ocean, picking up material, depositing some, changes course, disappearing underground to surface somewhere else. Yet, the tradition continues forever. The Dastkari Haat Samiti, a national association of craftspeople, undertook the enormous task of documenting whatever skills and crafts it could find and created artistic crafts maps of each state of India. Three new states were born during the process. A traditional art form of each state provides the backdrop for information meticulously gathered from first and second hand sources. The maps provide resource material to people working in different disciplines and a source of aesthetic joy to anyone who uses them as wall posters. The vibrant illustrations and academically rich content are recreated as an atlas of India’s crafts, handmade textiles and traditional arts, covering India’s cultural history. Crafts Atlas of India is therefore a unique documentation and a rare visual treat. Printed Pages: 464. 037128

Woven textiles of Varanasi
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 9789383098378; Hardcover; New; New; 
One of the strongest and best known traditions of weaving in India is situated in Varanasi. It has had a tumultuous history of ups and downs but has steadfastly refused to be obliterated. Many cities have risen and fallen, but Varanasi clings to its title as the oldest living city in the world. The River Ganga flows by, offering a sense of sacredness, continuity and eternal salvation for those whose last rites are performed on its banks. Hundreds of thousands of visitors touch upon Varanasi as a place of pilgrimage, to connect with history or to get under the skin of India’s spirituality. Against this backdrop, the author, Jaya Jaitly, emphasises the need to acknowledge the beauty of Varanasi’s textiles emerging out of age-old traditions and techniques. She highlights the danger of the loss of livelihoods and highly sophisticated skills. The erosion of identity and importance in the wake of machine-made imitations being produced in other parts of the world has already begun. The book also presents a significantly curated cross – section of the textile treasures offered by Varanasi. She combines the past and the present, linking them to different moments in the city’s history, and makes a powerful case for rediscovering, preserving and patronizing these textile treasures that are inextricably bound to the ancient aura of the city.Printed Pages: 128 with 118 colour photographs. 106608

Child Marriage in India: Socio-legal and Human Rights Dimensions
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195668901; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
Despite the existence, since 1929, of legislation banning it, child marriage continues to be a social reality today. This book provides a thought-provoking analysis of the reasons why such marriages, which effectively deprive children of their childhood, in particular the girl child, are allowed to take place. It shows that a disproportionate number of girls are married off in childhood, as compared to boys. It goes on to establish that child marriage has a devastating effect on the health and overall development of the girl child. Jaya Sagade provides a powerful critique of the state of Indian law--the lacunae, confusions, contradictions, and lack of gender sensitivity inherent in the provisions of various statutes which deal with the age of marriage, of consent, and the validity of marriage. Using the methodology of feminist legal analysis, this book makes a major contribution to the scholarship on child marriage. It examines domestic law in the context of international human r ights law, and shows how this custom violates every human right to which a child is entitled, including the right to health, education, equality, liberty, and security of person, and of course, the right to make a free and informed choice of a spouse. The role of civil society in challenging the status quo is also highlighted. Printed Pages: 250. 008702

China Unveiled: Insights into Chinese Strategic Thinking
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904435; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book seeks to afford an objective, incisive insight into China. Written by a veteran Indian analyst with over 25 years of experience monitoring developments relating to contemporary China, it is an attempt to inform and promote understanding of Chinas policies and actions and, especially, the implications for India. The 32 essays that comprise the book present a comprehensive tour de horizon of present-day China ranging across a variety of subjects. Each of the aspects touched upon have direct relevance for the international community and particularly for India and the Asia-Pacific region. The first section deals exclusively with Chinas currently evolving internal political situation. The outline sketches of Chinas two top leaders suggest their personalities influence Beijings policies and that Chinas domestic and foreign policies will undoubtedly bear their imprimatur. Other articles examine the equally important and rapidly evolving political scenario in China, especially concerning the selection of cadres to the Chinese Communist Partys highest echelons. The absence of veteran leaders of pre-eminence and unquestioned authority has accentuated competition within the Chinese Communist Party and indicators of potential discord, like the political upheaval involving ex-Politburo member Bo Xilai, have been identified. The book notes the attempt by Chinas leadership to rearrange national economic developmental priorities to remain competitive in a changing international environment and includes a debate centering on the Yuan rivaling the US dollar. Two articles assess the implications of Chinas maritime ambitions and Cyber strategy, both of which are centerpieces of Chinas military strategy. Other articles discuss in some detail the India-China relationship, Chinas relations with some of Indias neighbours, and Sino-US relations described by Beijing as Chinas single, most important relationship. A subject usually less focused upon though of vital strategic importance to India, namely Chinas strategy regarding Tibetan Buddhists and the Dalai Lama, is scrutinized in the books concluding section. This includes the developmental activity in Tibet and plans to divert the waters of the Brahmaputra, both of which have a serious potential to impact on India.Printed Pages:330. 104320

Jaina Relativism and Relativity Physics
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8120838157; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Einstein's theory of relativity which appeared in the early twentieth century. Shook many fundamental concepts in physics such as space, time, mass, energy and gravitation. However, it led to many misconceptions. Lay persons often equated it with the concept of non-absolutism, relativity or relativism which is found in many philosophical systems.Unfortunately, the theory spawned many misconceptions. Lay persons asserted, "Everything is relative", "You can go back in time". Those who were familiar with the western as well as eastern philosophy of relativism or relativity or non absolutism claimed, "Our ancestors talked about relativity long back" or "Our forebears had anticipated Einstein long ago." Most of these misperceptions stem form the fact that Einstein uses the word "relativity" for his theory in physics. Undoubtedly there are many theories of philosohical relativity. They assert on-absolutism of knowledge. Most of these theories are idealist which deny objective cognition and content that human knowledge does not reflect the objective world.In Jaina relativism called anekantavada or syadvada one finds a rare combination of non absolutism and objectivity. Anekantavada is one of the main pillars of Jaina philosophy and religion. It believes in rationality, objectivity and like science relies on empirical evidence.Printed Pages: 171. 102028

The Mystique of Om (Second Edition)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8178222817; Second Edition; Softcover; New; 
Om is the most sacred mantra in major Indic religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. It symbolizes affirmation, benediction and peace, and is used ritualistically in prayers, invocations and ceremonies, religious as well as secular. It is also a magical symbol beyond compare and is regarded as a vehicle of attaining liberation (moksha). Not only this, at the highest level, it is identified with Brahman, the Ultimate Reality. Using the Vedas, Upanishads, Yoga, Tantra and several religious texts as his sources, the author describes a plethora of interpretations of this mystical monosyllable which has since time immemorial captivated its worshipers, put yogis into trance, made Tantra practitioners ecstatic, and sent its changers into religious frenzy. The author also explains secular interpretations of Om in linguistics, psychology and structural analysis.Printed Pages: 192. 102094

In this book the author analyzes the concepts of sunya (zero), void, nothing and other similar notions found in various fields – mysticism, religion, philosophy, science and mathematics. This exploration reveals a strange but fascinating world of nothingness: a weird world with its mind-boggling contradictions and irrationalism conveying the central message of nihil, where one finds prophets and philosophers trying to harmonize contraries, non sequiturs and irreconciliables.Printed Pages: 311. 102208

Buddhist Logic and Quantum Dilemma
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8120835522; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Buddhism is a religion, but not a dogma. Its agnosticism and rational outlook has attracted many western scientists. There is abundant literature on similarities between Buddhism and Science. Two theories, relativity theory and quantum theory shook the very foundation of physics in the 20th century. Of the two, quantum theory reveals a truly mysterious sub-atomic world with its mind-boggling phenomena. For example, such entities as electrons, protons and photons (light particles)or waves as the occasion demands. This is called matter-wave duality. In Buddhist philosophy scholars have found a doctrine called catuskoti which is astonishingly similar to matter-wave duality. violate the Aristotelion laws of thought. The book analyzes two apparently contradictory parallels; (1) similarity between Buddhist philosophy and scientific thought, and (ii) resemblance between mystical catuskoti and mysterious matter-wave duality. The book also tries to dispel misconceptions harboured by lay persons about quantum theory.Printed Pages: 430. 102345

The World of Rhythm Called Rituals
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8178223325; Softcover; New; 
When someone mentions rituals we usually think of religious rituals such as prayer, puja, marriage ceremonies, sermons and so on. However, if we introspect a little, we realize that we spend most of our life in performing rituals of one type or another. Most of our activities from morning till night are ritualistic. This book explains how rituals are closely connected with verse, music and dance. It asserts that like music and dance rituals belong to the world of rhythm. By ritual we mean any stylized behaviour that recurs. Rituals abound in all walks of life: social intercourse, military affairs, law and politics, education and so forth. In most rituals rhythm is manifest and loud. In a few rituals which have a slow tempo, some analysis is necessary to detect rhythmic patterns. The author beautifully portrays the types of rituals and the rhythms they generate from the babbling of a child to a band parade or the chanting of a mantra. He explains the initiation and completion of patterns that form the rhythm. This book shows that like music and dance, rituals belong to the world of rhythm. A discussion on ritual instinct is given at greater length. The book further proceeds to ‘Hermeneutics’ or the science of interpretation and explains rituals in their light. There are many technical words from music, dance and religion. These have been explained in the text. A glossary which can be used for ready reference has been provided. The notes which have been added after each chapter are meant for those who would like to know more about the relevant topic.Printed Pages: 164. 102496

13287 Jayant Burde; Foreword By Frits Staal
Rituals, Mantras and Science: An Integral Perspective
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8120820533; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 17 Cms x 25 Cms 
In this book the author discusses the place of science in rituals and mantras. Using structual analysis he shows that rituals in general, whether religious, political, social or otherwise have common structural patterns. These patterns are shared by poetry, music, dance and gymnastics, but not by language. Consideration of animal rituals and pathological (compulsive) rituals leads him to propose a general theory which unifies all ritual-like activities. He also introduces the concept of ritual instinct which can make the theory simpler and more elegant. He shows how knowledge can be divided into science, non-science and pseudo-science to understand the true status of such strange phenomena as miracles, supernatural powers, siddhis, samadhi, rebirth and ESP.

Facts and Speculations in Cosmology
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2009; 0521134242; First Edition; Paperback; New; 160 x 240 Mm 
A thought-provoking insight into the evolution of cosmology for undergraduate students and general readers, this book shows that the mystery of the origin of the universe is far from being solved. Cosmology has advanced over time through observational evidence as well as a lot of speculation. In this historical approach, the authors argue that the speculative element has become a dominant part of modern cosmology. They show how assumptions have been made and portrayed as confirmed facts. This unique book gives not only a critical assessment of the big bang theory, but presents a host of anomalous observations, and puts forward an alternative, controversial theory on the origin of the universe. A non-mathematical account, it contains analogies from everyday life so that readers can understand the concepts easily and follow the arguments presented. Contents 1. Ancient cosmologies 2. The Greek epicycles 3. Reaching out to the milky way 4. Our position in the galaxy 5. The world of galaxies 6. The expanding universe 7. Modelling the universe 8. What is the geometry of the universe like? 9. A universe without a beginning and without an end 10. The cosmological debate 1950-1965 11. The origin of the chemical elements 12. Cosmic microwave background 13. The very early universe 14. Dark matter and dark energy 15. An alternative cosmology 16. Unfaced challenges in cosmology 17. Epilogue.

Water, Ecosystems and Society: A Confluence of Disciplines
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 817829933X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is an articulation of the much needed paradigm shift in the knowledge base for water systems management. It discusses the ecological and socio-economic dimensions of water, inclusion of which in sustainable and integrated water systems management has become essential the world over. It is path-breaking in terms of its conceptualisation since water management in India has traditionally been associated with the domain of engineering which tries to increase the quantity of water, to cater to increasing needs of human settlements and demands from irrigation and industry. This work, however, conceives water management as an interdisciplinary subject which needs to be understood not in terms of engineering alone, but in terms of its economic, sociological and, of course, ecological dimensions. Water, Ecosystems and Society: A Confluence of Disciplines is an excellent guide to interdisciplinary knowledge on water. It draws attention to ecological benefits of floods, economic productivity of water systems and the feasibility of the proposed river-link project of India. It focuses on the need to recognise ecosystem services provided by rivers as well as the necessity of environmental flows in such a system. The book deals with emerging areas of research, by connecting ecology, economics and water management. It will be a compelling read for academicians and students working in the fields of geography and environment science, development economics, environmental sociology, ecology, integrated water management, and so on.

India-Bangladesh Relations: Current Perspectives
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380502649; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
The importance of a thorough analysis of the current state of India-Bangladesh relations can hardly be exaggerated. Sceptics may observe that India can afford to remain indifferent to relationships with Bangladesh, whereas Bangladesh cannot do so vis-à-vis India. But realities do not admit of such skeptic oversimplification. With India’s northeast region remaining chronically unstable, and with count ries across this region, e.g. China and Myanmar, trying to improve their relations with Bangladesh (which itself provides a commercial gateway to India’s northeast region), India has to upgrade substantially its relations with Bangladesh in order to safeguard some of its vital interests. The necessity to strengthen the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) provides an additional impetus to the urgency of such upgradation. The disparity in the size and resources of India and Bangladesh are but a misleading indicator of the present importance of India-Bangladesh relations.Printed Pages: 104. 104379

Parliamentary Democracy in North East Indian
Kalpaz Publications/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789351281610; Hardcover; New; New; 
As mentioned in the beginning of the “Acknowledgement”, I found a general absence of political sense in the tribes of North-east India when I was conducting extensive and intensive field study to understand the socio-cultural characteristics of the Buddhist tribes of Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim. (I had earlier studied a similar aspect amongst the Tibetans in India—both refugees and traditional settlers, who had come as traders many centuries back and become Indian citizens). These tribal communities are vehemently conscious of their language, culture and way of life and their “politics” is fighting for those basic rights from both the State governments and the Government of India. We are fully aware of the long-term struggle of the Bodos and the Karbis of Assam. They, unlike the Ahoms or the Bengalis or any other language group of India, are least bothered about problems of India as such, not even if and when Pakistan or China attacks India! They only want their very special identity established. I took up Meghalaya and Sikkim out of the seven sisters of the North-east because their political systems and the awareness amongst the electors and the elected both appeared diametrically opposite! There was no Opposition in Sikkim Assembly (till the recent 2014 election) and no single majority party (again till the recent election) in Meghalaya! The government was of coalition and the Opposition too, was of coalition! In Sikkim the voters appeared so very fully contended with Pawan Chamling as the Chief Minister that they could not think of any other party other than SDF. The deep anti-Congressism (which had sprung up due to Congress Party's role in annexing Sikkim to the Indian Union when the common people were quite contended with the utterly benevolent monarch) had also made Sikkim Democratic Front utterly popular. In Meghalaya no party or no leader appeared to be above board thus leaving the voters totally confused. So, they mostly voted for the leader they personally liked ! There was no political consideration. The vote-seekers too, had no specific or attractive agenda that could possibly mobilize the voters successfully. They were unhappy with whichever coalition that came to power without realizing that too many cooks spoil the broth! They lacked the political sense to realize that a steady government can possibly indulge into some developmental activity. The parties and the leaders too, had no specific manifesto. Thus parliamentary type of democracy was missing in all the States I studied. It is for my readers to find out where they went wrong and where I went wrong!.Printed Pages: 282. 106126
