14104 Janis Amatuzio, MD
Forever Ours: Real Stories Of Immortality And Living From A Forensic Pathologist
Yogi Impressions; Mumbai, India; 8188479136; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 x 20 Cm 
Janis Amatuzio, MD, is a recognized authority in forensic medicine. She became a pathologist in part because it allowed her to help unravel the mystery of each person's death. She found that by listening and talking to the loved ones of the deceased, she could offer them some sense of closure. In the course of her work, she has heard extraordinary stories from grieving family members, patients near death, police officers, and colleagues - stories of the spiritual and otherworldly experiences concerning the transition between life and death. These stories affirmed Dr. Amatuzio's belief that, contrary to the attitudes of many in the medical community, there is more to death than just the cessation of breath. From the experience of one of her first patients - who on the day of his death told of being "visited" by a friend who had been dead forty years - to incredible coincidences - such as two daughters thousands of miles apart experiencing unexplained sensations at the precise moment their father passed away - Dr. Amatuzio began recording the stories she heard. Forever Ours presents these heartfelt accounts, exploring the realms of visions, synchronicities, and communications on death's threshold. Told in the voice of a compassionate scientist and medical expert who sees death every day, these stories eloquently convey the comfort Dr. Amatuzio has found in what she sees and hears. The book offers readers hope, comfort, and profound lessons on living. Printed Pages: 224. 015952

Mustan Aukon Blues ja muita ääniä Ulkoavaruudesta
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2016; 9525985350; New; 
Mustien aukkojen törmäys ei valaise taivasta, vaan rysäyksessä vapautunut valtava energia leviää avaruutta vavisuttavina gravitaatioaaltoina. Ainoa todiste törmäyksestä on soiva avaruus. Albert Einstein ennusti gravitaatioaaltojen olemassaolon jo sata vuotta sitten, mutta vasta kilometrien mittaisilla LIGO-interferometreillä ne onnistuttiin ensimmäistä kertaa havaitsemaan suoraan. Teoksessaan Mustan aukon blues ja muita ääniä ulkoavaruudesta Janna Levin päästää LIGOn aikaansaaneet ihmiset ääneen ja luo vivahteikkaan ja elävän kertomuksen vaikeasti tavoitettavien aaltojen etsinnästä. Kirja paljastaa ajatusleikistä kummunneen löytöretken inhimillisen puolen, jossa niin politiikka, raha kuin henkilösuhteet näyttelevät suurta osaa. Printed Pages: 236. 114334

Livet genom en Lins
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2015; 9515833418; New; 
Den västnyländske veterinären och amatörfotografen Bernhard Åström (1884?1959) fotografier omspänner nästan ett halvt sekel. Kameran blev redan i tidiga år Åströms ständiga följeslagare.

Bland motiven finns allt från porträtt, djur och veterinärsysslor till biltävlingar, flygplan och skärgårdsliv. Åströms motivval är ofta överraskande och fångar ögonblick av lekfullhet och allvar.

Mankby: A Deserted Medieval Village on the Coast of Southern Finland
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2016; 9526732979; New; 
In August 1556 a village of six farms was abandoned in Espoo in Southern Finland. Mankby, as the village was called, had been a prosperous dwelling place since the 13th century, but all this changed when king Gustav Vasa decided to found a royal demesne nearby and incorporated the fields of Mankby in the new estate. During a rapid desertion process, the peasants moved to new homes, and the old village plot became uninhabited until this day. During seven years of excavations, 2007–2013, archaeologists from Helsinki University and Espoo City Museum have unveiled remains of the village of Mankby. Mankby. A Deserted Medieval Village on the Coast of Southern Finland presents the results of this research, shedding light on many different aspects of medieval life. The main excavated structures, the results of the scientific analyses and the artefacts found during the excavations are presented in this volume, as well as the medieval settlement structure of the region and its prehistoric predecessors. Mankby has shown to be one of the best preserved village sites in Southern Finland, and the research on this site has updated our view on medieval peasants and their life conditions. The studies discuss new aspects on dwellings, contacts, trade, subsistence, diet and social structures. The village and its rich find material reflects the historic phenomena of its time: the medieval Swedish colonisation of the Finnish coast, the influence of the Hanseatic League and the dawn of early modern society. The results of the research in Mankby offer both micro-historic glimpses into the past and insights into the larger picture of history. Printed Pages: 192. 114099

Vedic and Sanskrit Historical Linguistics (Papers of the 13th World Sanskrit Conference Volume 3)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8120836324; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This volume contains 10 articles based on papers presented at the Linguistics sessions of the 13th World Sanskrit Conference (Edinburgh, July 2006) and shows the engagement of scholars with all aspects of Vedic Grammar, including phonology, inflectional and derivational morphology, syntax, semantics, lexicography, and stylistics. In many cases the articles constitute integral parts of long-term research projects of their authors that are ongoing even at this date of publication and therefore present the broad sweep of the field of Vedic linguistics as it is currently being practised. The contributions include two on phonology (Kobayashi and Kummel), two on morphology (Garcia Ramon and Tucker), three on syntax (Bubenik, Hettrich, and Hock), one on the semantics of tense and aspect (Dahl), one on lexicography (Krisch), and one on stylistics (Klein). In several instances these papers fit integrally into the research agendas of their authors, representing parts of larger projects reflected in recent publications (Bubenik, Dahl, Garcia Ramon, Hettrich, Klein, Kobayashi) or deal with issues touched on repeatedly by their authors over a number of years (Hock). In one case (Krisch), the work announced has in the interim begun to appear and represent a broad reflection of research projects currently underway in Sanskrit Linguistics. That all but one of the papers focus exclusively on Vedic is simply a reflection of the reality that in Western countries the study of Sanskrit has frequently been treated as an entrée to Indo-European linguistics, and it is especially the oldest texts that have been mined for whatever nuggets they can yield relative to our understanding of the proto-language.Printed Pages: 309. 102040

Classical Greek Architectural Design
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2013; 9526721160; New; 
The aim of this book is to change the prevalent paradigm in Greek architectural design studies: detecting patterns in a set of measurements is to a high degree a statistical question and scholars who ignore this fact risk confusing the discussion rather than clarifying it. The foundations on which Greek architectural design analyses are built are not necessarily as stable as is often taken for granted. Recognising complex patterns in data sets requires expertise both in the field of the study in question and quantitative methods. The emphasis of this monograph is on methodology.

Bridge Across The Rivers: Partition Memories from the Two Punjabs
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789385285738; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The history of the Partition is neither singular nor static. It appears different from different perspectives. The past is never over, its presence looms large over our presents.The Partition narrative exceeds the bounds of history, to the large scale exodus often referred to as the third partition—most painful and long-lasting in its emotional, political and social contexts. It impacted both collective and individual identities. In some ways it rendered the individual invisible with identity being transformed into a stereotype which evoked conventional patterns of behaviour. The heartache and anguish of divided families and frustrated, failed individual lives lay heavy on the joy of a much coveted freedom.Oral histories break the hegemony of the written. Fictional narratives offering psychological insights and a history of relationships move beyond facts to cultural constructs, the psychology of fear, and the uncertainty and bewilderment of the moment. They enter individual psyches to explore morality and ethics, guilt and regret.This collection seeks to debate issues and throw light on discourses other than those of violence and darkness, working with a chronology, located in time. The narratives unfold expectation, hope and harmony, flight and violence, psychological fallouts, gender issues and questions of guilt and reflection. As the stories trace the shifts in emotions and focus on individual wills, the undercurrents of cultural oneness form a counter discourse. Printed Pages: 202. 113919

Defence from the Skies: 80 Years of the Indian Air Force (Second Edtion)
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904534; Second Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Indian Air Force now completes 80 years since it was formed as an independent component of India’s armed forces. Time and again, the air force has performed magnificently even against severe odds, and built up a professional reputation that is the envy of leading air forces of the word. This volume, as the Second Edition of the earlier volume published in 2007 has been extensively revised and updated. Air Forces are unique in the sense that they are the only national military institution exclusively devoted to military operations in the aerospace continuum. The Indian Air Force is no different. But their dominant role in modern warfare, the high costs of aerospace power, and a host of other factors demand closer attention to their role in modern defence and the protection of national interests. Air Forces don’t win wars by themselves; and no one in the Indian Air Force has ever claimed it. But no war can be won without them. We learnt that seminal lesson the hard way when we did not use the potent force of the IAF’s combat fleet in the Sino-Indian War of 1962. It is from this perspective that this study — or rather an interpretative essay reflecting on the significant issues and events of the past 80 years — approaches the challenges the Indian Air Force faces in the coming decades. IAF combat force levels have slumped while its commitments are rapidly growing in consonance with our expanding economic and political interests well beyond our territorial boundaries.Printed Pages: 430. 104298

China's India War 1962: Looking Back to see the Future
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904725; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
A potential competition exists between India and China, and there is also no doubt that China started the war. Highlighting the mistakes made by India rather than empirically analysing the available data can be regarded as the primary causes for the confusion that exists today. Though complete details and evidence of the developments are available and documented, few of us have attempted to draw up a pragmatic and realist analysis.The consequences of that war have yet to die down entirely and are frequently raked up with issues on recent developments which are not widely dissimilar to those of 1962. China is a complex country. To understand this rapidly progressing nation is even more difficult. There are many perceptions on this country and many of them are formed on account of some international events and China’s growing assertiveness. It may be far-fetched to expect for a paradigm change in stance and motive which could give China an uncertain negotiating position. This edited volume provides the reader an excellent blend of the historical run-up to the aberration, the military developments and consequences. It is also provides useful material to understand the geographical boundary issues between India and China and developing Chinese strategies both on the political and military front.Printed Pages: 332. 104305

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 to work 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 fifth 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: 240. 104349

The ICON: Marshal of the Air Force, Arjan Singh, DFC (Second Edition)
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380502694; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This is the story of one man who has been the ICON of the Indian Air Force (IAF) for decades – but in reality it is also the history of a family called the IAF. Arjan Singh joined this family in his teens when the Second World War started, and rose to be the sole Marshal of the Indian Air Force, the highest military rank attainable which before him only two army chiefs, Carriappa and Sam Manekshaw, had achieved. At the ripe old age of 24, he commanded No. 1 Squadron, flying Hurricane fighters in defence of Imphal, in1944 beseiged by the Japanese, where the Supreme Commander SEAC, Lord Mountbatten, in an unprecedented step, personally awarded the DFC (Distinguished Flying Cross) to him on the battlefield itself for his leadership and performance in defeating the Japanese.Arjan Singh had a meteoric career and led the Indian Air Force to an unequivocal victory in Pakistan’s War in 1965. In spite of enormous difficulties, shortages, internal challenges and restraints, the IAF clearly dominated Pakistan Air Force (PAF), stopping their armour offensive on 1st September in its tracks while providing near 100 per cent of the required direct offensive air support to our army.This biography by India’s leading defence expert, unambiguously debunks the myths of Pakistani superiority, promoted by their propaganda and our own negligence of history and empirical evidence. And it does so on the basis of hard facts, a large number of them brought to light for the first time, and explains the political and operational restrictions that applied to the air operations. The IAF was shooting down three Pakistani fighters for the loss of one of their own besides providing full support to our Army. It was shooting down three Pakistani fighters for the loss of one of their own besides providing full support to our Army. It was not only the Gnats that became “Sabre Killers” but Hunters and Mysteres shot down a large number of Sabres and Starfighters in air combat, while Canberra bombers defied the PAF by providing daylight close air support to our troops.Printed Pages: 370. 104375

Indian Aircraft Industry
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380502519; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Aviation came to India quite early, in fact a century ago, and an aircraft factory, Hindustan Aircraft Ltd., had been set up 70 years ago in Bangalore. But India, from its 25 percent share of global manufacturing in 1750, had been deindustrialised in the previous two centuries and its technological and economic capacity had been emasculated by the Raj. Hence, it had no industry, leave alone defence industry, to talk of at the time of independence. But by 1948, the first Indian design of a primary trainer, the HT-2, was started and soon, the licensed production of the first jet fighter, the Vampire, commenced at HAL.During the 15 years before the Sino-Indian War in 1962, HAL moved ahead rapidly, designing a number of light aircraft. It began the design of the jet trainer Kiran, and manufactured the famous Gnat fighter which acquired the reputation of “Sabre Killer” in the 1965 War with Pakistan. Above all, it started an ambitious project in 1956 to manufacture a multi-role combat aircraft, the HF-24 Marut, which turned out to be an outstanding design. Notwithstanding our inability to get an adequately powerful engine for it, three squadrons equipped with the aircraft served the country well in the 1971 War on the Western front.During the Nehru era, the aircraft industry rested on three strands of self-reliance: indigenous design and development, licensed manufacture, and outright import in some cases. Unfortunately, after the 1962 War, the need for expansion of the IAF led to enormous demands of modern aircraft of all types, and the country’s defence needs were mostly met by licensed production of hundreds of fighter and transport aircraft and helicopters. We seemed to have become complacent (or incapable of professional thinking). In the process, the self-reliance model of three strands shrank to just two strands, with indigenous design and development, which is the most crucial element in creating autonomy in aircraft and other industrial enterprises, suffering a serious setback amounting to neglect for more than three decades. This has been changing during the past decade and new opportunities are opening up with a sustained high economic growth on one side and opening up of new sources of technology and arms on the other. But major institutional and structural reforms would be required to take advantage of the new opportunities. This volume by the country’s leading defence expert, points out to the nature of these reforms after examining the Russian and Chinese experiences. This book is a must for military and industry professionals, students of defence, those interested in aviation and the general reader.Printed Pages: 312. 104390

Military Leadership for Tomorrow
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8187966580; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
A leader, military, political or in any other profession, is inevitably a lonely person, and yet a successful leader, especially in the military profession, must be a very sensitive person to be able to lead successfully through the motivation, dedication and loyalty of those he leads. In the military profession, of course, this acquires even greater salience since the profession, at one level, demands a willingness and readiness to make the supreme sacrifice, and, at another, involves victory or defeat of the country that nurtures its military power.According to an American saying, “There are three types of leaders: those who make things happen, those that watch things happen, and those who wonder what happened!” This is why the military needs leaders of the first kind, and who can not only manage and motivate people, but also ideas and concepts for which they must acquire knowledge on a broad basis. Modern military power is highly technology oriented and even dominated by it. Current trends indicate that this will increase in future. Contrary to conventional wisdom, this will increase the premium on the quality of the man dealing with the machine at all levels. In the air forces, this would matter even more since “so much will depend on so few.”We need strategists at all levels; and the chiefs of the armed forces of 2040 are already in active service. They would have to provide military professional advice to the political leadership at crucial times under enormous uncertainties where “actionable” intelligence would not be available, and their own knowledge and experience would have to guide them. To enable them to do so successfully, these officers would have to be given broad-based education and knowledge. Above all, successful military leadership would require very high standards of professional integrity as well as personal integrity – at all levels.This volume brings together eminent experts well versed in the theory and practice of leadership and the knowledge that needs to be available to them. The issues explored in this volume are equally applicable to other professions, especially in the corporate world.Printed Pages: 28. 104427

India’s defence spending experienced a marked decline since the late 1980s.From 3.6% of the GDP in 1987, defence spending came down to 2.1%, which was the lowest figure in nearly four decades. Modernisation, training and preparedness suffered heavily as a consequence since other segments of the expenditure remained pre-committed. Decline in defence capability was a major factor encouraging Pakistan to launch Kargil War in 1999.Printed Pages: 276. 104474

The sudden and devastating financial crisis which swept East Asia in 1997,the continuing problems of economic restructuring in Russia, the perennial war in Afghanistan, the emerging challenges of energy security, trans-national terrorism, the continuing reliance on nuclear weapons, the transition of India and Pakistan across the nuclear threshold in May 1998(followed by their limited border war in Kargil in May-July1999) are only some of the more urgent issues of security which need to be evaluated comprehensively by all the countries of Asia, especially since all indications are that the next century will be an Asian Century.Printed Pages: 290. 104478

Role of Indian Air Force in 1971 War
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904503; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Indian Air Force which was initially created as an independent military force proved to be an independent and versatile component of Indias military power in 1971 War. This book provides insightful essays and material to critically review and revalidate some of the continuing concepts and approaches to the planning and execution of military operations. This edited version delves into the national interest protection and legitimate compulsions for India to go into war. The compilation also lays out the canvass for a comparison study with the one in 1965. The analyses on military strategy of Pakistan and avenues of shortcoming in joint planning bring out important lessons in force employment. The aggressive dimensions of offensive actions by all the three Services have been well documented.The 1971 War proved the heroism, steadfastness and courage of junior leadership that, incidentally, has also been the hallmark during Kargil in 1999. Despite frequent criticisms on jointness, instances of combined resoluteness and mutual trust during 1971 War contributed immensely to the victory. Valuable lessons can be inferred from instances where objectivity in political decisions brought about judicious outcomes through demonstrable use of military power.The book also provides a few analytical horizons on the background framework of Simla Agreement and certain events in the past that could have developed a different template for history. Air power may be difficult to understand but an evaluation of the purpose, cost and expected gains as evident from various instances of history including 1971 War would bring an end to many irreconcilable and inchoate debates. This book makes for a compelling read for those in quest of understanding the competence of air power and its dominant influences to shape victory.Printed Pages: 238. 104326

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

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

Attempting to put the unsavory experiences of her life behind her, Sunaina returns to the Doon valley. But the once idyllic valley is now a bustling metropolis with its old world charm eroded by the harsh realities of modern day life. Drawing upon the constancy of her childhood friend Tanuja, she begins her journey inwards, following the light and shade of the many hued classical music ragas. Delicately and sensitively, Jaskiran Chopra guides her protagonist in her search for inner strength as she accepts both the beauty and the pain of her past and one day at a time, begins to build a future, symbolized by her daughter, Roop. Ultimately, Autumn Raga is not only a wistful sigh for the past, with its warm and comfortable shadows, but a powerful argument for the hope of a tomorrow.Delicately and sensitively, the author guides her protagonist in her search for inner strength as she accepts both the beauty and the pain of her past and, one day at a time, begins to build a future, symbolized by her daughter.Printed Pages: 200. 106537

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

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.

14197 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.

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.
