Ganesh
Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 8184955138; Softcover; New; 
In India, statues of Ganesh are placed at the inner-gates of many temples, symbolizing his role as a keeper of sacred spaces. Here, pilgrims and passersby pay homage and seek his blessings. It is this symbolic presence at the entrance of our most holy places that makes Ganesh such a vital figure in our lives. Stationed at the threshold of sacredness and awareness, mediating between the possibility of the profound and our often habitual, mundane perception of the world, Ganesh is the guiding force behind this very moment of experience where desire meets possibility. Ganesh: Removing the Obstacles offers practical and meaningful interpretations of folk narratives and sacred texts concerning the larger-than-life elephant-headed god, Ganesh.Printed Pages: 100. 105354

The History of Christianity in India: From the Commencement of the Christian Era (In Five Volumes)
Christian World Imprints/B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789351480419; Reprinted; Hardcover; New; New; 
There has been no extensive work available providing the History of Christianity in India at one place and whatever available of earlier annals of the Indian Churches and Church History were scanty, and, hence, this all-time classic work which fills that gap. As the Author contends, the chief solicitude of this ecumenical account of Christianity in India is to provide `History of Facts'. He affirms that in the book, there is not even one task of doubtful authority as its sole purpose is to promote the glory of the Lord.This voyage of reviving historical facts goes chronologically, beginning with the intercourse between the Western Nations to the then East Indies covering Ceylon & Burmah, continuing with the phase where Missions were employed in the then Mogul Empire, and further going on to provide an elaborate picture of the establishment of the British Empire in India. It inter-alia exhibits Missions carried out in areas like: Southern India including Madras; Eastern India including Bengal & Calcutta; Northern India including Agra; and Western India including Bombay & Goa.This monumental presentation has been accomplished in 5 Volumes. Vols. 1 & 2, contain an account of the introduction of Christianity into India, from the commencement of Christian era, together with the History of the Syrian and Roman Churches in India. Vols. 3 & 4 exhibit History of all the Protestant Churches in the East, right from their commencement. Finally, Vol. 5 contains a minute and authentic account of the progress of the several Missions of the Christian Knowledge, Church Missionary, and Propagation Societies; also of the American, Baptist, and the London Missionaries; the Wesleyan Societies, and of the establishment of the Scottish Missions. Also, Vols. 4 & 5 are duly equipped with Appendices for readers' better understanding.The Author has spared no pains to obtain access of all the authentic documents like original reports and correspondence of the Dutch, Danish, German, American, Portugese, and English Missionaries; to ensure the integrity of the work. It covers subjects like History, Missions, Religion, Regional Studies, and details of the episcopate of various bishops that were established in different parts of the Country. This superlative work fully presents itself for the Undergraduate and Postgraduate Students of History, Researchers, Christian Religious Scholars, Historians, Educationalists, Christian Laity, Church Clergies, and also for those who wish to look beyond the picture, on the advent & propagation of one of the leading world' s faith, in India. 106413

Penguin Books India Pvt. Ltd.; Delhi, India; 2014; 0143423584; Softcover; New; 
Can you work in India while you live in Bharat? James Joseph was in his late thirties, well ensconced in his job as a director with Microsoft, when he decided to take a family vacation in Aluva, Kerala.

I wish I could eat the fruits from this tree every year.’ Part memoir, part how-to, this is his amazing story of starting out from the backwaters of Kerala, becoming a corporate leader in America and then finding a way to have a successful career while working out of his village in Kerala. This book also contains tips and techniques for anyone frustrated with living in cities. How do you set up a home office? How do you integrate with the local community? Where do your kids go to school? How do you convince your company to give you this opportunity? God’s Own Office may well inspire you to transform your life.Printed Pages: 240. 103407

13624 James Manor (Author) & Niraja Gopal Jayal (Frwd)
The Writings of James Manor: Politics and State-Society Relations in India
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8125062505; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
The Writings of James Manor: Politics and State-Society Relations in India is a definitive collection of essays which depicts Manor’s range of interests. They are divided into five sections. The first is a commentary on the emergence of a consolidated democracy in India, and discusses two major themes—political awakening and political decay—which, together with political regeneration, forms the three key processes at work in Indian politics over the past forty years.If one aspect of the management of democratic affairs is linked to the Indian voters and their shifting political choices, the other is where political leaders step in; and Manor is equally interested in both. He devotes three sections to the nature of political parties, the trends of regional politics, and how, at all these levels, political actors manage the challenges of governance. He addresses the regional dynamics of politics through the lens of political leadership in the fourth section. In the last section, he comments on the more recent phase of Indian politics.The Foreword by Niraja Gopal Jayal is a fitting tribute from a colleague. A celebration of the singular scholarship of one of the leading chroniclers of Indian politics, this will be invaluable for students, teachers and everyone interested in the politics of India.

13626 James Mason
The Art of Chess
Goodwill Publishing House; New Delhi, India; 8172454643; Softcover; New; 
This is a completely unabridged revised edition of the most famous general study of chess ever written. It is designed to teach the beginner and the intermediate player just about everything he or she needs to know about openings, middle game, and end game. It is remarkable in presenting both ideas and actual moves (taken from the masterplay) in the most easily assimilated form.Revised and brought up to date by Fred Reinfeld and Sidney Bernstein, this book explains and makes easy for you more than 90 different openings, ranging from the classical Ruy Lopez to the work of Alekhine, Reti, Nimzovich and others. Combinations are analyzed and presented so clearly that you will soon find yourself seeing moves ahead more clearly than you did before. You will learn how to plan your game with a purpose, how to attack, sacrifice, defend, exchange, and govern your general strategy. Endings are also thoroughly covered. All in all, there is not an aspect of practical chess which is not treated, and there is hardly a player living below the rank of grandmaster who could not profit from Mason's work.

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8121501172; Reprint; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This book deals with the unwritten rules of Nepalese religious art as laid down in 'model books'; manuals for the artists, in which they can find the correct way to represent, in visual art, any of some 2000 godly figures. The author has traced the development in time of some 150 popular Hindu deities in order to see if the representation of these gods is in any way related to changes in society. The author has studied the sketches in numerous model books and compared them with written iconographic descriptions in ancient texts as well as with executed art such as paintings, woodcarvings and miniatures. The main area of her study was the town of Bhaktapur. Printed Pages: 201. 000355

The Sankhya Aphorisms of Kapila with extracts from Vijnanabhiksu's Commentary
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8121509831; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Traditionally and historically it is affirmed that Kapila is the real founder of the philosophical school known as Sankhya, or Enumeration. The school is so termed on account of it having given rise to twenty-four categories of existence or what may be called evolutes. Prior to Kapila, Indian philosophical scene was in a state of diffusion, in that the Sankhya elements of thought were scattered in various Upanisadic texts, which meant no systematic presentation existed insofar as philosophical reflection was concerned. The task of giving a systematic shape to philosophical reflection fell upon Kapila, which he accomplished with dexterity in his aphorisms. Kapila accomplished this task by synthesizing the scattered elements of philosophical reflection as well as by giving birth to technical terms that would give appropriate expression to the problems of ontology and epistemology. In this way Kapila laid the proper foundation for the future development of Indian philosophy, which with the passage of time, found its proper expression in such diverse schools of thought as Vedanta and Tantrism. The present translation of Aphorisms of Kapila by J.R. Ballantyne is so rendered as to make it possible for an average reader to understand the complex thought structure of Sankhya philosophy in a language that is easy and graspable. It will be of great help to those who are desirous of knowing not only the historical background of Indian thought, but also want to know as to how existential questions of life and death have been tackled.

Man of Everest: The Autobiography of Tenzing
Pilgrims Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8177691910; Reprint; Paperback; New; New; 5.5 x 8.5 Inches 
Man of Everest is the story of a man who had been inspired by, and finally devoted his life to the mountains of the Great Himalaya. Spoken as a true son of the soil Tenzing through the capable pen of James Ramsey Ullman, tells us in his own word of his devotion to and fascination with the greatest of all the Himalayan Peaks Cholomungma commonly known to us as Mount Everest and of how in the end with his colleagues of the famed Hunt expedition, he finally was one of the first to set foot on is summit. Though this event was not free of the controversies that often accompany such achievements, Tenzing whilst recounting his memories of the actual surmounting of the summit has dealt with subject very candidly as may be clearly seen in the text, and for the first time a description of the actual happenings in tenzing's won words were made available to the world. Ullman's introduction to Tenzing and his commissioning to write this autobiography were all through the good offices of the United Press Agency. Tenzing had shown his reluctance to work with a British writer and showed his preference for working with an American writer instead. The great humility of the man was shown in his appreciation of the fact that fortune had allowed him to be one of the main participants in achieving this great fead. In his own words he says, "For I like to think that our victory was only for ourselves not only for our nations but for all men everywhere. What I felt was a great closeness to God and that was enough for me." "Tenzing, a simple man from the mountains, who overnight became an international hero. tenzing always a gentleman never allowed the fame to change this basis simple ways, I was privileged to be his friend."

Risk: The New Management Imperative in Finance
Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 8179922162; Softcover; New; 
Advances in technology and risk modeling have boosted derivative markets. The resulting increase in arbitrage activities has narrowed profit margins in all financial markets. Consistent risk methodology is now an essential tool for overcoming competitive pricing and for anticipating the consequences of market turbulence.It is now possible to calculate the potential impact of every major deal on the overall risk profit of the firm. Market risk and credit risk can be quantified and considered against the expected contribution to share-holder value or return on capital. These measurements create a theoretical framework for harmonizing activity at financial firms.In practice, today’s markets and technologies evolve so rapidly that the requirements and the capabilities shift before any reengineering cycle can be completed. A quagmire of data seriously confounds the task of extracting reliable information for risk management. The data problem becomes acute when you move to global risk management, because a flaw anywhere affects the whole process and is much harder to trace.Printed Pages: 296. 105567

Particularly fascinating is his account of the Jaina temples at Dilwara, Palitana and the Girnar hills and the ancient remains at Chandravati, Anhilvad Patan, Ahmedabad, Junagarh, Bhuj and other towns. Equally important are the traditions, sects and beliefs, palias or hero-stones which Tod could understand and explain with felicity on account of his first hand experience in Rajasthan. Included in this account of travels is an appendix containing translations of inscriptions referred to by Tod in the book. This account also contains fine wood-cut illustrations of monuments, plans of some of the places as well as drawings of sundry items observed by Tod.

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8121510228; Reprint; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The Annals and Antiquities of Rajasthan, after its publication brought to entire world not only the resounding echoes of drums and cavalcades from the remote highlands of Rajasthan, awakening people to a blazing trial of imagination about the traditions of courage, chivalry, romance and sacrifice but also its geographical background, economic resources, social system, political organization and religion. This book has been considered by scholars as an indispensable storehouse of material dealing with various facets which usually find no place in any historical account and has thus rightly been called 'an encyclopaedia ob the land including some parts of central and western India in general and Rajasthan and the Tajputs in particular. The collection of material as a vital precondition to the writing of history was never lost sight of by Tod. During his connection with Rajputana he showed an untiring zeal in the search for the historical data which is very well reflected in this book. Despite it's shortcomings, as this being the first historical work of its kind the book serves as one of the original contributions on Rajasthan which had laid the foundation of the systematic study of the history of the land.

Annals and Antiquities of Rajasthan
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174365796; Hardcover; New; New; 
A landmark historical work, written at the cusp of modernity in the early nineteenth century, Annals and Antiquities of Rajasthan was Lieutenant Colonel James Tod's classic tribute to this grand desert region of India. Tod - mesmerized by this region and its inhabitants, the Rajpoots - dedicated himself to examining everything about Rajasthan through indigenous documentation, architectural relics, inscriptions, and medieval poetry. For twenty years, Tod delved deep into its long history, its legends and folklore, its social customs and its art. He also conducted geographical research and made the first accurate map of Rajasthan in 1815. This pioneering book condenses the two thick volumes of Tod's Annals and presents them in an accessible and comprehensive manner. While Tod's original style has been preserved, some gaps and inaccuracies have been clarified by the author. A treasury of invaluable material for historians and general readers alike, the Annals cover the history of six important regions of Rajasthan - Mewar, Marwar, Jessulmer, Bikaner, Amber, and Haravati - and give an engaging account of Rajpoot life from the twelfth century onwards. Many of the surviving traditions of Rajpoots that have their roots in bloody battles, tribal conquests, or petty rivalries, and the Rajpoots'inherent chivalry, loyalty, devotion and zeal have been perceptively discussed. This abridgement also illuminates how the history of the subcontinent was successively written and perceived by the British. Printed Pages: 384. 108513

Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8178350386; Hardcover; New; New; 
Morally insane and Legally sane-this is a eliche in Police subculture. Don't worry about the morality of your act, but be cautious about the legality of your action-this is the advice given to younger generations by the elders in police. They consider morality as something not applicable to police work or as something which does not have anything to do with police job. The author thinks that any Law without a morality is a jungle law and the policemen cannot enforce jungle law n a democracy. Human conscience is a mental energy which generates restlessness, discomfort, compulsive behaviour in people when they commit moral wrongs and if that is so, it cannot be otherwise in people who wear police uniform. All people have negativity in abundance and immorality is a negativity. The negativity in police has resulted in custodial violence, torture, death, suicide, rape, coercion and what not in police subculture/ The author says that the police do not require any encouragement to become immoral, but they need enlightenment to become moral in police works. Police Ethics I s a new area and precisely therefore, the book would attract not only policemen but also moralists, judges, lawyers, researchers and public administrators.Printed Pages: 262. 106024

Blood That Cries Out from the Earth: The Psychology of Religious Terrorism
Oxford University Press; New York ,USA; 2008; 019533597X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Religious terrorism has become the scourge of the modern world. What causes a person to kill innocent strangers in the name of religion? As both a clinical psychologist and an authority on comparative religion, James W. Jones is uniquely qualified to address this increasingly urgent question. Research on the psychology of violence shows that several factors work to make ordinary people turn "evil." These include feelings of humiliation or shame, a tendency to see the world in black and white, and demonization or dehumanization of other people. Authoritarian religion or "fundamentalism," Jones shows, is a particularly rich source of such ideas and feelings, which he finds throughout the writings of Islamic jihadists, such as the 9/11 conspirators. Jones goes on to apply this model to two very different religious groups that have engaged in violence: Aum Shinrikyo, the Buddhist splinter group behind the sarin gas attacks in the Tokyo subway system, and members of the extreme religious right in the U.S. who have advocated and committed violence against abortion providers. Jones notes that not every adherent of an authoritarian group will turn to violence, and he shows how theories of personality development can explain why certain individuals are easily recruited to perform terrorist acts.

Timeless Rapture: Inspired Verse of the Shangpa Masters
Snow Lion Publications; Ithaca, New York, USA; 1559392045; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 6 x 9 Inches 
Throughout history awakened ones have celebrated the rapture of mystical states with inspired verse, sung extemporaneously. This book offers a rare glimpse into the mysticism of the Shangpa Kagyu lineage, a tradition based mainly on the profound teaching of 2 women. This compendium of spontaneous verse sung by tantric Buddhist masters from the 10th century to the present includes translations as well as short descriptions of each poet's life and a historical overview of the lineage. "Our lineage's past spiritual masters used songs to express their manifest experience and realization of the spiritual path's vital subjects, such as the trio of basis, path, and result; or view, meditation, and conduct; as well as dispelling hindrances and enriching meditative experience. The blessings of the lineage enter our heart, the very best technique to realize our mind's abiding nature, Great Seal. I pray that all who see, hear, or read this book be blessed."-- Bokar Rinpoche "Only a fraction of Tibet's vast literature of mystical poetry has yet been translated into other languages. Now, with the gift of Ngawang Zangpo's inspired English translations, the exquisite expressions of inner experience sung by the greatest men and women of the Shangpa lineage of Tibetan Buddhism are available to the world."-- Cyrus Stearns, author of The Buddha from Dolpo, Hermit of Go Gliffs, and Luminous Lives "Ngawang Zangpo's fluid translation and rich commentary truly brings us into the presence of the extra-ordinary masters of the Shangpa Kagyu tradition. As we listen to their verse, we are transported by their devotion, awakened wisdom, and blessing to the Vajra world that has become their home."-- Lama Drupgyu Tenzin "Ngawang Zangpo has given us, for the first time in English, the complete translation of the Songs of Realization of the Shangpa masters. This is a living, unbroken lineage, of fully realized mahasiddhas, both female and male, whose teachings burst forth in spontaneous song. Through the centuries these pith instructions have inspired and brought to full realization generations of yogis and yoginis. I highly recommend Timeless Rapture for its illuminating and joyful transmission."-- Lama Palden Drolma, Sukhasiddhi Foundation Printed Pages: 416. 001689

The Life of Longchenpa: The Omniscient Dharma King of the Vast Expanse
Snow Lion/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1559394188; Softcover; New; 
Renowned as a peerless teacher, practitioner, and scholar, Longchenpa thoroughly studied and mastered every one of the many Buddhist vehicles and lineages of teachings existing in Tibet at his time. Through his radiant intellect and meditative accomplishment, in both his teachings and written works, he was able to reconcile the seeming discrepancies and contradictions between the various presentations of the view and the path within the many lineages of transmission. His written works are also famous for being able to transfer true blessings just by reading or hearing his enlightened words.Compiled from numerous Tibetan and Bhutanese sources, including Longchenpa’s autobiography, and stories of his previous lives and subsequent rebirths, The Life of Longchenpa weaves an inspiring tale of wonder and magic, of extraordinary visions and spiritual insight, set in the kingdoms of fourteenth-century Tibet and Bhutan. It also reveals for the first time fascinating details of his ten years of self-exile in Bhutan, stories that were unknown to his Tibetan biographers. Printed Pages: 224. 112849

The Poverty Regime in Village India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0195690834; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This book is a companion volume to the recently published Labour Bondage in West India. Both the volumes are an outcome of the author’s return to the villages of his earlier fieldwork in south Gujarat between 2004 and 2006. His aim was to ascertain whether economic growth during the last half century had indeed helped to improve the lot of the rural proletariat. As before, the poverty-stricken landless labourers are the subject of this study. Challenging the economists’ views on the meaning, magnitude, and dynamics of poverty, Breman presents a case for analysing deprivation within a wider social context. His findings show that the landless may not have become poorer than they were half a century ago but the gap separating them from the better-off in the village economy has widened enormously. The market economy has not created more economic, political, and social space for them. Footloose, underemployed, and working for paltry wages, this class is stuck far below the poverty line. The author disputes the view that his findings are specific for the region under investigation. The data compiled and the variation within it—nature of the agricultural economy, proximity to urban centres, access to industrial employment, and caste and class identity of the employers—clearly establishes that work and life in the rural slums has to be understood in the wider setting of marginalization leading to exclusion. 020782
