Gandhi the Pacifist
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8192570223; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Mahatma Gandhi has been studied extensively as a multifaceted personality from the backdrop of India’s freedom movement. Volumes have been written about him. His world-view and his ethical and spiritual self-discipline as well made him an unparalleled persona of his time. This book portrays him as a philosopher of action (karmayogi), an ideal in which he was deeply rooted, than a philosopher (darshanik). While discerning the Gandhian idealism, this study analytically examines the different qualities of Gandhi such as his firm belief in peace as an embodiment of spirituality, his approach to conflict resolution, his world-view on corruption and human values, his economic philosophy and his outlook on socialism vis-à-vis that of Karl Marx, among others. It also makes an endeavour to reappraise Gandhi in the present-day context. The book, therefore, attempts to familiarize Gandhi to the present generation and reminds us that Gandhian thought in all its aspects is still relevant in this era of globalization and suggests many ways to overcome or face the challenges of modern consumerism, absorbing the quintessence of a karmayogi.This book aims at invoking keen interest among people of different walks of life, be it academia, students, or common populace, who would like to know more about Mahatma Gandhi’s ever-enticing personality.Printed Pages: 133. 100307

Do We Care?
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 0199469547; Hardcover; New; New; 
India is one of the fastest-growing economies in the world. Yet health is not a part of our ambitious development story. In fact, India’s disproportionately stingy healthcare budget makes some of the poorer nations look better in comparison. Statistics, however, speak louder than critics: we have one of the highest numbers of women dying in childbirth and under-five mortality rates. Every year nearly sixty million people get pushed below the poverty line due to the health expenditures that they incur. But there are a few bright spots too: India has eradicated polio and reversed the incidence of HIV/AIDS by an impressive margin.Drawing on her experience as the former union health secretary, K. Sujatha Rao gives us an unsparingly candid insider’s view of India’s health system. This richly detailed book favours increasing the health budget, greater use of technology, and providing leadership and good governance. Rao argues that unless good health is prioritized as a national goal, India’s growth story will remain largely self-congratulatory. Printed Pages: 478. 111568

The Scar
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8125037055; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Growing up as a boy from the Parayar caste, in the milieu of Christian, Hindu and Muslim communities, K.A. Gunasekaran narrates the familiar tale of caste oppression and prejudice prevalent in the villages of Tamil Nadu. As the narrative unfolds, the reader is shown how the ‘low’ caste negotiates differently with the three religious communities. The deep pain of the Paraya surfaces through the risible anecdotes that ridicule the grievously unjust practices of the ‘upper’ castes. The book emphasises the fact that Indian villages are doubly caste-conscious and cruel, and that Dalit emancipation rests in better education for the community. Gunasekaran writes in an earthy and colloquial style to capture the innocence, cruelty and drama of a South Indian village. Considered the first modern Dalit autobiography in Tamil, The Scar is an important book calling for Dalit assertion and emancipation. Printed Pages: 120. 031650

Pragmatic Rural Development: A Pioneering Paradigm
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; 818069030X; Hardcover; New; New; 
The book is concerned with rural poverty alleviation in India. In 1999-2000, even after fifty years of independence, 27.09 per cent of rural people were still below the poverty line. Administrators and rural development workers entrusted with the task of implementing rural poverty alleviation programmes must know what rural poverty is and how to tackle it, so that poverty is and how to tackle it, so that poverty alleviation can be accelerated. At present, literature on rural poverty and its alleviation methods are not readily available in an integrated manner. The available literature is in a scattered form. The book is divided into two pats. Part I with five chapters deals with the concept of rural poverty, causes of rural poverty, poverty related situational facts and results of the efforts made so far to alleviate rural poverty. Part II of this book provides details of pragmatic rural development. It is hoped that this book will help development planners, development administrators and local leaders of Non Governmental Organisations engaged in the task of rural development, academicians and students of rural poverty studies and all those who are moved by the bane of poverty in the country.

A History of Hindi Literature: with a foreward by Dr. Amaranatha Jha
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1993; 8121504546; Second Revised and Enlarged Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The ballads of Rajput prowess, the aphorisms of Kabir, Tulsidas, Ramayana, the bhajans of Sur and Mira, the poetical rhetoric of Kesava, the closed-packed epigrams of Behari, the lyrics of mystics Prasada, Pant and Mahadevi make Hindi literature an 'enchanted garden'. The present work seeks to give a glimpse of that 'enchanted garden' to those whose mother-tongue is not Hindi. At the end there is an anthology of Hindi verse containing best pieces of the 'nine gems' of mediaeval Hindi. A glance through the anthology may enduce the reader to read the full text in the original. From the Chhandas of the Vedas to the Khadi Boli of the present day is a long span of five thousand years. From Chhandas to Sanskrit, from Sanskrit to Prakrit, from Prakrit to Apabhramsa, from Apabhramsa to local dialects Dingal, Pingal, Avadhi, Brajbhasa, Maithili, Bhojpuri, Bundeli, Dakhani, and finally a wrench from the past and the birth of a new language, the Khadi Boli of today-is a phenomenon unparalleled in the history of any language.

An Epitome of Jainism
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1988; 8121500583; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
PYTHAGORAS called 'three' the perfect number-expressive of beginning, middle and end. The concept of Trinity is common to most religions. The Christians have the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. The Hindus have the Brahma, Vishnu and Mahes. The Buddhists have Buddha, His Order, and the Law. The Jainas' Holy Trinity consists of Right Belief, Right Knowledge and Right Conduct. If we have to anthropomorphize abstract virtues, we have had in modern times the three Ascended Masters-Barrister Jugmander Lal, Brahmchari Sital Pershad and Pandit Ajit Prasada. Between them, they exhausted all possibilities of translation and interpretation of the Sacred Scriptures. It is not possible for a layman to go through all that copia verborum in a lifetime. This volume is an attempt to put the wisdom of the Ancient in a nutshell. Printed Pages: 242. 000535

Handbook of Urbanization in India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195672399; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
This book comprehensively analyses urbanization trends in India using, for the first time, the 2001 Census data. It looks at definitional problems in the identification of urban settlements for comparative analysis. The realistic quantification of migration, its share of urban growth in large cities, the role of small and medium towns, and growth of large urban agglomerations are also considered. Covering 17 major states across India the study takes into account regional dimensions--both at the state- and district- level as well as urban population growth across states. Micro-level perspectives are included by bringing in district-level analysis of two developed states--Maharashtra and Punjab, and two relatively backward states--Rajasthan and Bihar. The study analyses: the extent, patterns, and trends as well as the socioeconomic and spatial characteristics of urbanization interdependencies between urbanization and available infrastructural facilities trends o f rural-urban migration and its relationship with employment situation globalization and lopsided urban growth Professional urban planners, state urban development authorities, as well as national and international donor agencies will benefit from this well researched study.

The Concept of Truth in Science and Religion
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2005; 818069190X; Hardcover; New; New; 
Gandhi did not consider political philosophy as a distinct, autonomous intellectual system separated from ethics, economics, sociology etc. as he viewed life in its totality. He looked at life en face, not in profile. Though there was for him no antithesis between spiritual and worldly matters, he had certain fundamental beliefs from which he never budged an inch. The moorings of his overall world outlook is, of course, to be found in philosophical idealism. The book discusses in detail his views on state, power, politics, democracy, means and ends as well as human rights, nationalism and internationalism. Printed Pages: 228. 112054

Karpasa in Pre-Historic India: A Chronological and Cultural Clue
Aditya Prakashan; New Delhi, India; 1982; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Moves towards a general revision of ancient Indian History. Taking the aid of archaeological discovery, documentary material and linguistic study, it seeks to bring about a radical change in (1) comparative chronology, (2) the sequence of cultures and (3) the cultural character of several phases of India's career in antiquity. By a close investigation of the term karpasa for cotton in Sanskrit literature and by an alignment of its first occurrence with the first ascertained cultivator of the cotton-plant in our country, the body of Indian writing called Sutras is shown to be in its early stage contemporary with the Harappa Culture, the Indus Valley Civilization, of c. 2500-1500 B.C. The natural consequences are a new date for the Rigveda which is commonly held to have started in c. 1500 B.C. a thousand years before the Sutras, and a new understanding of the Indus Valley Civilization as at once a derivative, a development and a deviation from the Rigveda a millennium after this scripture's beginning. However, the argument from karpasa does not stand alone. Its import is buttressed from several other directions. Pointers from India are rendered sharper by significant suggestions caught from the Mesopotamian region with which the Indus Valley Civilization had commercial and cultural contacts. In agreement with several scholars but with an eye to more particulars, a name for this Civilization is discerned in the Sumerian records. It is then matched -- again with a closer scrutiny than given before by like-minded scholars -- with a name applied from more inland India to people of the Indus Valley for the first time in the Satapatha Brahmana which just precedes the earliest Sutras and would thus synchronize by the new chronology most appropriately with the initial development of the Harappa Culture. The riddle of the Indus script is also confronted and a fairly long debate held on the claims of Proto-Tamil and Proto-Prakrit for the language embodied in it. The latter is adjudged more likely to be the base though other elements as part of the superstructure are not brushed aside. At the end, as a key-insight, the vocable karpasa itself is disclosed as functioning under a transparent veil in several lists of Sumero-Akkadian words which are connected with the trade between the Harappa Culture and Sumer. The above summary hints at only a few aspects of the manifold research pursued along new lines with a sustained thoroughness. Printed Pages: 214 . 100022
