15701 Kalidasa
Meghadutam
Penguin Books India Pvt. Ltd./Prakash Books; New Delhi, India; 067008798X; Hardcover; New; New; 
"As punishment for failing in his duty, an unnamed yaksha is cursed by the god Kubera to endure a hard year in exile. Thus separated from his beloved wife, he longs to send her word of his undying love and the pain he suffers over their parting. Unable to do so himself, the lovelorn yaksha implores a passing cloud to act as his messenger. And so entrusted with this impassioned message, the cloud must travel a vast distance to the city of Alaka in the Himalayas, where the yaksha’s wife waits, consumed by thoughts of her beloved. Filled with lush imagery—from the magnificence of the bountiful earth to the glory of the celestial gods, from the hypnotic lilt of birdsong to the passionate lovemaking of courtesans—The Cloud Message is as moving and resonant today as it was centuries ago. In Srinivas Reddy’s new and ingenious translation, Kalidasa’s celebrated poem comes to life in vivid detail. " Printed Pages: 200. 111467

15704 Kalindi Charan Panigrahi (Author) & Bikram Das (Tr.)
Born of the Soil
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789385285585; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Matira Manisha ('The Man of the Soil') is one of those uncommon artistic creations which prove that good art does not have to be convoluted or obscure. The novel's enduring appeal lies in its very starkness. It is the story of an Odia peasant family whose simple joys and sorrows are bound up with the soil. Baraju Padhan, who becomes the head of the family after the death of his father, Shaama Padhan, inherits his humanism and is committed to the traditions and ideals of joint family existence, but his younger brother, Chhakadi, instigated by his wife Netramani, is determined to split up vthe home. The book is remarkable not only for its depiction of enduring human values but also for its realistic portrayal of the culture of rural Odisha. The language of the novel is a bold attempt at capturing the idiom of the people whose life it presents. Matira Manisha lies close to the hearts of Odia society, and has been made into an award-winning Odia film by Mrinal Sen. Printed Pages: 136. 111053

Decolonisation, Development and Disease: A Social History of Malaria in Sri Lanka
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125054294; Hardcover; New; New; 
The 1901 Census of Ceylon identified malaria as a “bane” of the island. And through the ensuing century a story of development has sprung around the control of this endemic disease. A story of development that is scripted by a postcolonial state, as it grew to espouse a hegemonic Sinhala nationalist ideology. Decolonisation, Development and Disease looks at the dynamic interplay between malaria and its social, political and environmental milieu in Sri Lanka over an 80-year period from 1930 to 2010. The volume begins with an ethno-historical account of the accumulated body of indigenous knowledge and practices and cultural adaptation to fevers and how it saw a rapid decline with the arrival of western medicine. Then it analyses the consequences of the devastating malaria epidemic of 1934–35, which, affecting mainly the Sinhala South, in some ways shaped Sri Lanka’s transition from a colony to a postcolonial developmental state. The book also examines the manner in which civil war (1983–2009) triggered yet another outbreak of a malaria epidemic. Employing postcolonial studies, post-development and discourse analysis, and examining colonial records, government statistics, oral history, ethnographic research and newspapers, this book challenges the conventional modernist wisdom relating to the role of tropical medicine in combating disease and points to the social and historical embeddedness of malaria epidemics. Arriving at a time of reconciliation in Sri Lanka, this volume will be of interest to ethnographers, social historians, public health experts, administrators and students of political science.Printed Pages: 272. 101923

15706 Kalipada Deb
The Great Betrayal: India's Development Experience Since Independence with Reference to Central and Western India
Kalpaz Publications/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789351280026; Hardcover; New; New; 
What happened to these lofty objectives ultimately? How much could be achieved after six decades of development efforts? Did the government try its utmost to provide food and other basic necessities to the semistarved billions? Were there adequate efforts t o reduc e t he regional imbalance in development? How far the rural-urban disparity could be reduced over the decades? Did the government exert itself fully to mobilise all possible resources? This study makes an i n- dept h analysis of these questions with particular reference to the Central and Western part of the Indian states — i.e., UP including Uttaranchal, MP including Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra and Gujarat. The Great Betrayal brings out how an overwhelming majority of the country 's population were deprived by the government over the last six decades due to the misgovernance and endemic corruption? The development efforts made benefitted hardly a fifth of the total population. The Constitution was distorted to serve vested interest. Corruption became rampant everywhere, and the elections held turnedout to be a mockery of democracy. The use of money and muscle power to win elections became common everywhere. Not surprisingly, a large number of criminals became members of Parliament and state legislatures. This study will provide a deep insight towards these anomalies and immensely beneficial to all the researchers, academicians and students.Printed Pages: 336. 106209

Breaking the Mould: Alternative Schools in India
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789385152290; Softcover; New; 
Understanding Alternative Schools India’s education system has attracted bouquets and brickbats in equal measure. On the one hand, there are the IIT success stories many of whom go on to head MNCs and found successful businesses in India and abroad. But on the other hand, the rote learning which is de rigueur in most schools has been blamed for the lack of creativity and innovation that the Indian education system is said to suffer from.The ‘system’ has its supporters and its detractors. Into this hugely contested space are a handful of alternative schools that seek to go against the grain. In recent years, these schools have attracted a great deal of attention as many parents seek a more relaxed and humane education system for their children. But doubts and questions about whether what they are doing is right for their child persist. In Breaking the Mould, Kalpana Pathak unpackages the world of alternative schools. She delves deep into their philosophy, practices and curriculum. Extensively, researched, this book will satisfy all doubts that one might have about alternative schools. A directory at the end of the book lists all the alternative schools in the country with their addresses and contact details.All in all, a must-have on the bookshelf of every parent. 109718

In India, about three fourth of the population, still live in Rural areas. The notion that Women in rural Societies enjoy relatively Higher social status appears to be a myth. Gender Discrimination is a social reality irrespective of the Nature of societies and no universally applicable rule exist to measure the degree of status of women in various societies. There is an imperative need to delineate the factors determining the social and economic status of women and to make efforts to strengthen the process that Help women to raise their status in the Society through educational, Political and economic empowerment.The present volume contains 18 papers by eminent scholars who are authorities in the field of social anthropology. The papers included in this book explore recent issues related to the socio-economic position of women in tribal and rural societies. The issues include - health, nutrition, education, adoption, inheritance, succession, marriage, Divorce and participation in Panchayat Raj. The papers of the volume also conclude that inspite of government's so called efforts, the agony of rural women continues.It is our hope that the material incorporated in this volume will provide fresh information to the researchers and scholars alike.Printed Pages: 230. 106082

Every Homicide file has one last blank page marked LR. That page is meant for Lalli... Sixtyish and silver-haired, she's officially retired from the force, but she's still their Last Resort when it comes to solving a murder... When Lalli's niece finds herself at Hilla Driver's seaside villa for a foodie weekend, murder is the last thing on her mind. She's too busy falling in love with the cook. Also present are a number of Page 3 regulars: a best-selling novelist, a jazz dancer, a broken-hearted model, a fiery feminist with a dramatic past and a respectable housewife with a sordid one, a doctor with a fashionable practice and an industrialist with a yen for horses... Each with a secret waiting to spill. It should have been a great party. But the cook serves up more than food at the Millennial Banquet. There's murder on the menu and luckily for Hilla, Lalli takes charge. For Lalli is not your ordinary houseguest. Printed Pages: 289. 029130

On the stroke of seven, death annexed Mr Rao.. Building has four floors and four flats on each floor, making sixteen homes in all. Fifteen of these would thrill at the thought of something happening to Mr Rao. Mr Rao made it his business to know everybody and very soon all made it their business not to know him. In curiosity, Mr Rao was a very Elephant's Child. 'Let but a fly fart in Building,'Patherphaker said coarsely, 'Mr Rao knows about it even before the fly does.' Mr Rao believed in the citizen's right to information. From him came the news that Mrs Kamath's gynaecologist had refused to oblige with a fifth abortion, from him why Ramachandran's daughter's wedding was precipitately called off, from him the story behind Patherphaker's premature retirement and from him too the truth about Kumudben's nervous breakdown. Then, just as Building decided something must be done about it. Mr Rao died, upsetting them all. Printed Pages: 219. 108494

India as Reflected in the Divyavadana
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1995; 8121506247; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
Divyavadana is a quite voluminous book written in mixed Sanskrit and belonging to the school of the Sarvastivadh Buddhists. The main emphasis in the text is on the "Buddhist concept of Karma" and the consequent result (phala). Religiosity and charity have been consciously stressed by the author/authors of the text to increase the interaction between the laity and the monastic establishments. Being a student of Buddhist philosophy as well as history, the author has tried to study the text from various angles with a multidisciplinary approach. Some questions have been raised for further research work. The work hopefully will benefit the students of Buddhist studies particularly for the study of changes in thought as well as in religious perception that took place in different Buddhist schools. It will also help the students of ancient Indian history as the text is replete with information on the socio-economic, political and religious ideas and institutions of India during the first few centuries of the Christian era.

In November 1989, an Indian couple are discovered murdered in a small town in upstate New York. They lie together as though just disengaged from a long embrace. Yet their murder has been two centuries in the making.County Sligo, Ireland, 1843. Seventeen-year-old Brendan McCarthaigh and his best friend Padraig have everything ahead of them. Quiet Brendan is in love with books and headstrong, spirited Padraig is madly in love with Brigid. But when the sanctimonious Father Conlon discovers Padraig and Brigids clandestine affair, he sets in motion a chain of unforeseeable, irrevocable events that will propel one to North America and the other to Bengal.Weaving together private histories and real events and taking us on a journey across the globe -Kalyan Ray has crafted a sweeping, epic, multi-generational saga spanning two centuries. A rich, compelling tale of home and exile, identity and belonging, it is also a story of oppression, friendship and compassion and the few intimate degrees of separation that lie between love and murder.

In an age where communal riots were rife and gender bias prominent, his was the voice that spoke of equality?beyond divides of religion,?caste and region. Using his powerful pen to focus on social and?political issues, he wrote fearlessly and profusely in a spirit?of pioneering journalism in several newspapers and journals. The same spirit of revolt found expression in his literary work and in the prolific composition of songs which inspired generations of youth fighting for India’s freedom.Printed Pages: 255. 106839

Swept Off the Map: Surviving Eviction and Resettlement in Delhi
Yoda Press; New Delhi, India; 819061861X; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
In January 2004, the Tourism Ministry of the Government of India announced its plan of developing a 100-acre strip of land on the banks of the Yamuna into a riverside promenade, to be marketed as a major tourist attraction in the lead-up to the Commonwealth Games. In February and April 2004, homes and community buildings in this area were razed to the ground leaving thousands of people homeless. This book, the outcome of a two year long research study, tracks the lives of nearly 3,000 of these evicted households who were relocated to Bawana on the margins of the city, and describes their struggle to live with dignity in the face of assaults on their identities, homes, rights and lives. The book presents data and evidence on a wide range of social and economic indicators to show how eviction and resettlement have eroded the rights and undermined the livelihoods of resettled families, leaving them in a state of permanent poverty from which escape seems unlikely if not impossible. A critical exposé of the human consequences of the push to make Delhi a ’world-class city’, Swept off the Map raises uncomfortable questions about present trends in urban development and makes a powerful case for bringing the voices and views of all citizens – not just the elite (or aspiring-to-be-elite) classes – into debates on the future of the city. Contents Acknowledgements Towards a World-class City: The Politics of Eviction and Resettlement in Delhi Methodology 1. Shelter for All 2. Economic Development 3. Quality of Life 4.

15757 Kama Maclean
Pilgrimage and Power: The Kumbh Mela in Allahabad, 1765-1954
Oxford University Press; New York ,USA; 2008; 0195338944; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Today the Kumbh Mela in Allahabad, India, is a major Hindu religious pilgrimage and the largest religious gathering in the world. In 2001, according to the government of Uttar Pradesh, 30 million pilgrims were drawn to the confluence of the rivers Ganga and Yamuna on the most auspicious day for bathing. In an impressive feat of organization and administration, the first mela of the new millennium was managed to the overwhelming satisfaction of most, with an impressive health and safety record. The loudest complaint had to do with the intrusive presence of the media. Journalists, largely representing foreign media outlets, had swarmed to the mela, intent on broadcasting to a global audience sensational images of naked (or wet-sari-clad) Indians taking part in "ancient" religious rituals. Resistance to foreign interference with the mela has roots that go back 200 years. The British colonial state and the colonized had different ideas about what the Kumbh Mela represented: for the former, it was a potentially dangerous gathering that demanded tight regulation and control, but for the latter it was a sacred sphere in which foreign domination and interference were intolerable. In this book Kama Maclean examines this tension and the manner in which it was negotiated by each side. She asks why and how the colonial state tried to manipulate the mela and, more important, how the mela changed as Indians responded to the colonial power. In recent years many scholars have emphasized the extent to which the Kumbh Mela has been monopolized by the Hindu nationalist movement. Maclean seeks to situate the history of the Kumbh Mela in Allahabad within a much broader context. She explores the role of a pilgrimage fair like the Kumbh Mela in disseminating ideas, particularly political ones like nationalism and ideas about social reform. Kama Maclean tells the mesmerizing and important story of the Kumbh Mela with exciting detail as well as careful scholarly attention, illuminating for the reader the full scope of the event's historical and socio-political context.

Yoga Psychology: A Handbook of Yogic Psychotherapy
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8124607117; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Yoga psychology is both a positive and a normative science. It not only analyses human personality and its growth, but sets normative ideals and prescribes techniques to achieve such objectives, as well. Thus, expansion of consciousness and making oneself the master of his/her mind are the broad objectives of yoga psychology. The topological aspect of mind as described by Freud in terms of conscious, subconscious and unconscious levels was well detailed in the yogic literature, thousands of years ago. The sound practice of yoga enables one to have a disease-free body and keen intellect. The book, thus, details the impact of various yoga practices on psychology and specifies that consciousness has a wider conation in yoga. Yoga presents vivid and sound meditation procedures for the attainment of psychic consciousness through the awakening of kundalini. Homeostasis or balance is the central principle in yoga psychology, and it holds that any sort of imbalance in the system — physical, psychological or pranic — creates disorders and the solution lies in rebalancing it. Here comes the role of yogic psychotherapies such as prarthana, mantra sadhana, spiritual couselling, pranayama, yajna, sankirtana, svadhyaya and vrata anushthana. This volume enunciates that yoga psychology is an applied science, and thus has remedies for many individual and social problems. It deals at large with the application and benefits of yogic practices in developing one’s personality traits and leveraging them further to keep him/her happy and experience a blissful life.Printed Pages: 215. 100441

D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8124608407; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This volume addresses and analyses the different aspects of yoga and consciousness using scientific and pedagogical tools to fit well into an academic framework. The essence of yoga is the search to know our true selves to discover the real nature of consciousness. It starts with the body, goes to the mind and aims to realize the inner nature. Yoga is a way of life; it provides excellence in action; it removes our own evils and weaknesses, leading us to a higher level of consciousness paving the way for peace, bliss and harmony.This book has been structured as a textbook on yoga. It conforms to the course content of yogic science of Indian universities and should serve as an authentic reference book on the subject. Efforts have been made here to navigate the readers with different aspects and planes of yoga and consciousness smoothly.While dealing with topics such as the concept, science, psychology, and problems and challenges of consciousness, this volume delves deep into topics like human consciousness in philosophical thought; yoga and expansion of consciousness; and the current issues in the science of consciousness and yoga. It also familiarizes one with the different methods of evolution of consciousness in Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism and Sikkhism.This book is specifically targeted at university teachers and students of yogic science. It should also raise keen interest among practising psychologists, psychoanalysts and general readers. Printed Pages: 215. 107457

Disability, Education and Employment in Developing Countries: From Charity to Investment
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2015; 1107064066; Hardcover; New; New; 
With several empirical evidences this book advocates on the importance of human capital of persons with disabilities and demands the paradigm shift from charity into investment approach. Society in general believes that people with disabilities cannot benefit from education cannot participate in the labour market and cannot be contributing members to families and countries. To invalidate such assumptions this book describes how education in particular helps make persons with disabilities achieve economic independence and social inclusion. For the first time detailed analyses of returns to the investment in education and nexus between disability education employability and occupational options are discussed. Moreover other chapters describe disability and poverty followed by the discussion of barriers behind why persons with disabilities are unable to obtain education despite the significantly higher returns. These foundational themes recur throughout the book.Printed Pages: 286. 101487

FDI in retail a self goal
Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789382711179; Hardcover; New; New; 
Over two decades of the neo-liberal policies have further intensified our chronic poverty and imposed a severe livelihood crisis on nearly one billion socially excluded Indians. The project wholesale globalization has become its own victim as seen in massive and unsustainable current account deficit, reckless inflation, decline of the external value of the Rupee and loss of confidence by the foreign investors in India policy regime. Even India's own companies are happier investing abroad than in India.The irony is enhanced as a way-out of the blind alley has been sought in throwing open even the retail trade sector to displacement investment by the biggest MNC retailers. We have succumbed to their lobbying and the entire policy space has been spread before them to freely write the policy script by way of pre-conditions for entry and subsequent regulation.It is a sad story of going beyond free markets and self-regulation. It robs the adversely included scores of millions of Indian penny capitalist small traders and hawkers of their toehold in the economy. Thus the global super rich, the 0.1 percent at the top, have subverted both our 'democracy and development', courtesy cronies in government and the Indian corporate houses. The wooing of FDI in retail on the latter's terms is nothing but a case of self-goal. The book examines this question in a broad socio-economic and political framework and shows how the neo-liberal establishment considers no price too high to accomplish its partisan agenda. Debunking the TINA syndrome, the book advances some alternatives to the disastrous policy of opening up retail trade to the most nefarious retail MNCs. Printed Pages: 192. 107210

Public Administration in India: Case-Studies
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1999; 8121206294; Hardcover; New; New; 
This volume of fifteen case-studies dealing with several facets of public administration in India marks the continuation of the IIPA's long-standing practice of publication of case-study volumes. The complexity of Indian reality, the daunting Nature of the tasks and challenges facing the Indian administration call for innovative measures. In turn, these pose difficult methodological questions concerning the appropriate modes of comprehension, conceptualisation, codification and documentation, and their effective communication. The critical point is that a process of learning by doing must be activated by wider sharing of the lessons of experience. It is such attempts which become the basis for inductive theories, with their wider canvass. In this process case-studies Play an important practical, heuristic and pedagogic role. It was in this perspective that this volume was conceived.A number of these case-studies were awarded on the basis of the Perception of our chosen experts, while others too were considered suitable material for wider dissemination and sharing. These case-studies are both Teaching cases as also Research case-studies and present a rich mosaic of administrative experiences.It is hoped that these case-studies touching upon various aspects of public administration in India would be found useful both by the practitioners and the students of public administration. Since these are relevant and contemporary to the India, context, this volume will also assist the trainers and Teachers of public administration to avert the Criticism that they may lean on out-of-date case-studies and that too of far-away situations.Printed Pages: 198. 105920

Kasi the Sacred City of Lord Siva
Sangeeta Prakashan/ Chowkhamba Sanskrit Series Office; Varanasi, India; 2007; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Among the several sacred cities of the world, Kasi has a distinct individuality that gradually developed over the ages since the hoary past when the city was founded four thousand years ago, and in consequence the people of this ancient city have in course of these centuries evolved philosophy of life quite distinct from that of other place in India or outside of the nation. Starting from the righteous Vedic Culture Kasi continued to develop along normal Aryan lines. There was plenty of spiritual exaltation from the Rigvedic lore combined with the music of the Sama and the scientific sprit of the Atharva, strengthened later by Vaisheshik philosophy; but simultaneously there was the bard who "tells the lore of living" and a combination of these religious and philosophical elements with the scientific and the utilitarian produced the Aryan concept of life and how it was to be lived. Kasi (popularities known as Varanasi) however soon started on its own individual course and when one of its kings became a top philosopher of his times, it was realized that spiritual and intellectual bliss was an essential element for the achievement of beatitude, and so Varanasi developed an attitude of mind unaffected by physical and 'other worldly adversities, which were merely the punishment for earlier sins and had to be borne in any case. Where was the good of crying over these unimportant aspects of life and the graciousness of Goddess Annapurna, and Visvanatha gave additional strength to bear calamities and even continuous suffering with a smile and with a contentment not usually met with elsewhere. Why weep for the present passing phase of suffering. Thus while faith strengthened the will to wear a smile even in misfortunes of life, it; also gave the strength to bear them without flinching, in addition to the feeling that Lord Visvanatha was in Varanasi, and so "all is right with the world that is Lord Siva at Kasi his own established city sacred an Ancient Fond of betel and his mouth full of it, the typical person of Kasi roamed about in his scanty dress, with a flower garland round his neck (which he had just received from his Lord in the temple) and saffron sandal paste on his forehead, serene and contented, and "cared for no man he" and , if he had the good luck of having a draught of the famous Varanasi Thandai coloured with the favourite herb intoxicant of the city, he considered himself no way inferior to a king. Early morning walks to distant gardens or across the Ganga to the sands on the other side on a boat, a draught of freshly prepared thandai there and a return to the holy river for a bath followed by some sort of worship, and then a bee-line to some temple. That was the routine and as he left the fane after paying his obeisance to his Lord, he was a happy man indeed-full of bliss that was not of this earth. He greeted his friends with hearty smile and did not mind a Joke or two at his expense-or even A Few loving abuses, and was able to give a hearty laugh even against himself on suitable occasions it is only due to the grace of Lord Siva. Caste, religion, sect and even nationality have never been barriers in the matter of accepting the Kasi Samskriti and persons of all persuasions could and did become followers of this creed inspite of their diversity in other respects. All who came to make Varanasi their home become converts to this view of life soon enough, and even if they went out again they did not cease to be its votaries in realms beyond. One could recognize a Varanasiman in other cities-even in foreign countries-such was the stamp of its culture that he carried about it, and even today he is clearly marked out in this respect. In spite of its distant to place and he remains there as clearly marked out personality, and own individuality if one were to sum up the entire gamut of Kasi Culture in one or tow words, they would be Mauj and Masti-two words which seem to have no parallels in the English language. The former epitomises all that goes by the generic terms enjoyment, conviviality, festivity, jollity, gaiety, and other similar ideas while Masti envisages contentment, serenity, placidity, tranquility exhilaration, geniality, buoyancy, self-esteem, heartiness, and even recklessness wayward obstinacy.Printed Pages: 170. 100907

Zero Point Bombay: In and Around Horniman Circle
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174366598; Hardcover; New; New; 
Zero Point, from which all distances to the city are measured, is an apt metaphor for Horniman Circle. Located in the heart of the 'Fort', it holds within itself the early history of the Portuguese and British presence, going back to the mid-sixteenth century. It is the very birthplace of Bombay. It is, at the same time, a hub of contemporary Mumbai, anchored in its economy and ethos. The co-presence of varied institutions - financial, commercial, governmental, intellectual - gives it a special character. The dual orientation to the past and the present, the multiple weave of institutions and the diversity of people who work in them and their mutual connections, continuities and disjunctures form the theme of this book, which seeks to document the intangible heritage of the Horniman Circle. The twenty essays and photographs by a range of academic and creative professionals, in a style that is lively and engaging, combine historical and ethnographic research. They describe, analyse and reflect on not only the architectural and historical artifacts, but also the distinct work ethos and leisure activities, democratic and civic impulses, public spaces, commercial dynamism, traditions of scholarship and journalism, reading and food culture. Responding to Mumbai's increasingly proactive civil society groups, the book addresses a broad spectrum of readers - from professionals to informed laypersons - with a serious, critical yet empathetic approach to issues of urban heritage. Zero Point: from which distances to the city are measured. Mumbai's Zero Point used to be St Thomas's Cathedral in the Horniman Circle. It was later moved to the GPO. Printed Pages: 173. 108591
