16005 Kumaran Sathasivam
Marine Mammals of India
Universities Press; Hyderabad, India; 2003; 8173714657; First Edition; Paperback; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The intelligent dolphins, the giant whales and the inoffensive Dugong or sea-cow are among the most fascinating creatures in the wild. Every aspect of their way of life is astonishing—some of them use sound to “see” in the water, some of them dive to incredible depths in search of food, and some of them sing complex songs. Marine mammals are so intriguing that worldwide there is a multi-million dollar industry in just watching these animals. Yet, in India few are even aware that there are many of these creatures in the seas around the country—a full fourth of the world’s 120 or so species, in fact. This is due to the lack of information about them. Most existing records are scattered in various scientific journals. No book published so far covers this group of Indian wildlife adequately. This book is meant for a wide range of readers including children, wildlife enthusiasts and serious students. A significant part of the book is devoted to the more than 30 species accounts, which make the book a useful reference. Glimpses of their lifestyles are given through several essays dealing, for example, with the phenomenon of mass strandings of whales or the reputed ferocity of the Killer Whale. Further, color illustrations and character matrices meant for easy identification make Marine Mammals of India a useful field guide. The extensive bibliography makes the book a valuable research aid. The accounts of whaling and other threats faced by marine mammals highlight the conservation requirements of these animals. Printed Pages: 228. 027802

16007 Kumkum Chatterjee
Merchants, Politics and Society in Early Modern India: Bihar: 1773-1820
E.J. Brill; Leiden, The Netherlands; 1996; 9004103031; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
This monograph deals with the social and political context of commercial activity in early modern India - a period during which Eastern India (and Bihar) experienced the transition to British colonial rule. As a point of departure from existing scholarly literature that usually studies this transition in material terms, this volume uses an approach that takes into account the configuration of social relations and political connections within which, it argues, commercial activity was embedded. Using merchants and bankers as its subjects, this book deals with the structure of trade and banking, the position of merchants in the cultural order and the role of the state in perpetuating this order. 'Thus this work adds much to our knowledge of the interaction beween commerce, politics and society in Bihar and contains insights that are of general relevance to many other regions of India.' S. Arasaratnam, South Asia. Readership: All those interested in the history of British imperialism, the social and economic history of early modern India and the nature of the impact of colonial rule on India. Kumkum Chatterjee, Ph.D. (1989) in History, Calcutta University, is Assistant Professor of History at the Pennsylvania State University. The author of several journal articles, she has a broad research interest in the social and economic history of early modern India. Printed Pages: 285 with 7 illustrations and maps. 038884

Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 9789381523117; Hardcover; New; New; 
“8000 photographs, all of them shot inside a 12-room house with 10 residents. These aren’t impersonal records, but the result of a real life journey through complex terrains of intimacies. In photographing the office-goers, the unemployed, the petty clerks, the retirees, the ageing and the unglamorous, Kushal Ray announces his loyalty towards those who’ve lost out in the race for success, for whom life must and does go on without unnecessary pathos. Poised between fiction and facts, Kunal Basu’s narrative brings to life the remarkable world of the photographer and the photographed.Printed Pages: 152 with with 106 b/w photographs. 106585

16019 Kunal Sinha
A Banarasi on Varanasi
Bluejay Books (An Imprint of Srishti Publishers); New Delhi, India; 2004; 8188575240; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Varanasi is, quite simply, Hinduism's holiest, and one of the world's oldest living cities. For centuries, travellers have written about the experience of being swept away by the religious fervour that it has inspired. It is an entirely different perspective that Varanasi born and bred author, Kunal Sinha, brings to this book. It is a view from within, detailed in observation, sweeping in scale and evocatively Banarasi. Going beyond the usual tourist trail, the author takes the reader through a rich visual and verbal experience that only an insider could possibly provide.

16025 Kunga Samten Dewatshang
Flight at the Cuckoo's Behest: The Life and Times of a Tibetan Freedom Fighter
Paljor Publications/Library of Tibetan Works & Archives; New Delhi, India; 1997; 8186230114; Softcover; New; 
The Dalai Lama very Tibetan remembers with sadness and regret, was a Turning Point in the History of the 'Roof of the World'. With the Chinese communist occupation of their country and the genocidal destruction that followed, peace and freedom came to an end for the six million Tibetans. The only ray of hope in this bleak outlook was the safe arrival of His Holiness the Dalai Lama in India. Here is an account of His Holiness the Dalai Lama's escape, told by one of those most closely associated with it. Risking his life and the safety of his family, Kunga Samten Dewatshang, a leader of the Chushi Gangdrug guerrillas, escorted the Dalai Lama from the Norbulingks summer palace, right under the Chinese army's nose, on the first lap to freedom. This is the story of a courageous man, a typical Khampa, A Native of eastern Tibet, who recalls a way of life that is now gone forever.And yet there remains hope. This is also a story of resilience, of people who, having lost almost everything, managed to recreate their lives and pass on their faith and values to their children. Crucial to this success has been the abiding Inspiration of the Dalai Lama's Presence. And thereby hangs the importance of his having been able to escape.Printed Pages: 235. 103652

People and Life on the Chars of South Asia: Dancing with the River
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789382993780; Hardcover; New; New; 
With this book Kuntala Lahiri-Dutt and Gopa Samanta offer an intimate glimpse into the microcosmic world of ‘hybrid environments’. Focusing on chars – the part-land part-water low-lying sandy masses that exist within the riverbeds in the floodplains of lower Bengal – the authors show how both as real-life examples and as metaphors chars straddle the conventional categories of land and water and how people who live on them fluctuate between legitimacy and illegitimacy. The result a study of human habitation in the nebulous space between land and water charts a new way of thinking about land people and people’s ways of life.Printed Pages: 294. 101488

16037 Kurian Kachappilly (Ed.)
Mystic Musings in Art and Poetry: Mystic Musings in Art and Poetry
Christian World Imprints/B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8192512118; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
`Mysticism' is "the pursuit of communion with, identity with, or conscious awareness of an ultimate reality, divinity, spiritual truth, or God, through direct experience, intuition or insight". The International Conference "Mysticism without Bounds" makes an attempt to explore the "mystical consciousness" from different disciplines, like religions (Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Taoism, etc.), sciences (biology, new physics, neuroscience, and logic), humanities (philosophy, theology, spirituality, psychology, etc.), and art forms (poetry, music, dance, visual arts and rituals).Researches reveal that certain common grounds do exist among the various forms of consciousness, scattered among the world's religions, theologies, sciences, philosophies and art forms. The discovery of such points of convergence holds out the possibility of creating a `new worldview', and this new world view can create an awareness of the essential `unity' of humanity. Let these scholarly papers, presented from different domains of art and poetry, help the inquisitive readers to discover this essential unity, which is often conceived and interpreted in terms of `God-experience' with its basis within non-phenomenal self, and a unity that promises the unity of all experiences within the phenomenal world.Printed Pages: 199. 106433

A woman both in the eye of law and the society is not merely a person either in the gender or the existence. She has an inherent personality since birth called 'womanhood'. Unfortunately, a woman, in our country, belongs to a class or group of society who are in a disadvantaged position on account of several social barriers and impediments and have, therefore, been the victim of tyranny at the hands of men with whom they, fortunately, under the Constitution enjoy equal status. Women have the right to life and liberty; they also have the right to be respected and treated as equal citizens. Their honour and dignity cannot be touched or violated. They also have the right to lead an honourable and peaceful life. They must have the liberty, the freedom and, of course, independence to live the roles assigned to them by Nature so that the society may flourish as they alone have the talents and capacity to shape the destiny and character of men anywhere and in every part of the world. India needs to fast justify its reputation as a leading Civilization of the World and this book will contribute to this journey.Printed Pages: 392. 103331

Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789382711490; Softcover; New; 
In a culture described as 'punctuated by question marks', what is the role of women? Is she a meal ticket? A punching bag? A caretaker for old parents, offspring etc.? A business deal maker? The working partner ? The third wheel? Or a person in her own right—holding on to her space, her identity while countering intimidation? Kusum Choppra's hitherto untold stories, tongue-in-cheek or serious, offer insights into the functioning of women's minds: Of different approaches to life after a divorce; Of the greedy exploitation of the widows of Kargil's martyrs; Of a sister fighting for inheritance to protect her mother from her brother; Of a burnt bride fighting her way back—to life and emotional freedom; Of a simple village woman protecting her aged in-laws from the greed of her husband and his new wife; Of widows grasping at their slices of life. And why not? Of a challenge to Pati Parmeshwar's right to select surrogates! The stories are of women surviving their ordeals to move on in life. Printed Pages: 284. 107214

16065 Kwai-Yun Li
The Last Dragon Dance: Chinatown Stories
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0143064363; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 x 20 Cm 
'Kwai-Yun Li’s debut collection . . . about being Chinese in 1950s India, proves her a natural story-teller’—Tehelka On a hot summer day in 1942, sitting outside her shoe shop in Bentinck Street, a mother fixes her six-year-old daughter’s marriage to her neighbour’s son. A widow converts a part of her house to a temple so that she can support her family with the donations. During a border skirmish in the north-east, Chinese mothers prepare packages for life in concentration camps giving special instructions to the children, lest they get separated. A gentle bookseller and his daughter disappear in the middle of the night when they are deported to China for his political sympathies. And in the delightful story ‘Uncle Worry’, Uncle Chien worries when his daughter Pi Moi forgets to call him: he worries that she and her husband, Mohamed, have had a falling out. He worries when Pi Moi does call, for she must be fighting with Mohamed, otherwise why would she call? From crumbling shops in Chinatown to decaying tanneries in Tangra, Kwai-Yun Li’s The Last Dragon Dance: Chinatown Stories, exposes us to the life of the little-known Chinese community in Calcutta. While the arrival of the Chinese in India abounds in legends, the mass exodus of this dwindling community is not as romantic: political and economic upheavals have forced them to abandon their home. Even though theirs is so much a story of assimilation and syncretism—growing up in 1950s’ Calcutta one never paid much attention to which customs were Indian or Chinese—the Chinese have often felt the brunt of their foreignness. The rift between Mao and Chiang Kai Shek led to the deportment and imprisonment of hundreds of Maoist sympathizers. This collection gives voice to such concerns without being overtly sentimental or sensational; Li never fails to see the humour in the idiosyncrasies of her community. These inspired-from-life stories wonderfully capture the mood of the time with unassuming grace. Printed Pages: 132. 026724

European Integration: Trade and Industry
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 1993; 0521012627; Paperback; New; 
Much recent research has been devoted to the consequences of the completion of the European internal market in 1992. Existing estimates of the effects of market integration remain exploratory, however, and many important issues have yet to be adequately addressed. These are the issues concerning this book. Edited by L. Alan Winters and Anthony Venables, the volume examines such questions as the extent of gains to be expected from both ‘internal’ and ‘external’ economies of scale following integration, the implications of 1992 for the European Community’s trade with its traditional EFTA partners, the potentially valuable new East European markets, and the rest of the world. There are also chapters considering the implications of the internal market for the design of appropriate technology and taxation policies, and a study of the role of Japanese foreign direct investment in European manufacturing. Contents 1. Completing the internal market in the European Community: factor demands and comparative advantage Michael Gasiorek, Alasdair Smith and Antony Venables; 2. External effects and Europe’s integration Riccardo Caballero and Richard Lyons; 3. The multifibre agreement and the quality of production of textiles and clothing Riccardo Faini and Alberto Heimler; 4.

Symbolism in Hindu Architecture: As Revealed in the Shri Minakshi Sundareswar
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8173052042; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 18 x 25 Cm 
The theme of this work is the symbolic significance of The Magnificent Architecture of a unique South Indian temple in Madura. Due to its largely isolated state from external disturbances throughout history, South India developed its own style of Dravidian Architecture. In its latter periods the Nayaks of Madura were builders of great temples throughout the region. The temple at Madura is one of these characteristic temples, which began around 1550 and finished around 1640. The temple, in the Shaivaite tradition, is dedicated to Shiva and to his consort, Parvati Minakshi, the fish-eyed goddess is an aspect of Parvati, and Sundareswar is an aspect of Shiva. It was under this form that he married a local maiden and this occasion is perpetuated in the Great Temple at Madura. Shri Minakshi Sundareswar temple is thus in its very name and in its architectural arrangement the symbol of the union of divine 'masculinity' and 'femininity', of Purusha (Essence) and Prakriti (Substance), Metaphysical principles unmanifasted in themselves, but from which union and from which union alone universal manifestation proceeds. The passage through the temple is described and illustrated with a single goal in mind gaining Insight into the meaning of the symbols of space and the architectural configurations, tracing the way from the exterior to the interior, from the peripheral to the central, from the contingent to the essential, from the finite to the infinite. The text, the photographs and diagrams fathom the unbreakable bond between the spatial arrangements of South Indian sacred architecture and the metaphysical principles from where the formal arrangements derive. The approach of interpretation seeks to stay faithful to traditional orthodox Hindu doctrine, based on the Vedas in the first place, on the Puranas, and on the Shilpa Shastras - which deal with the arts in general - and the Vastu Shastras -which deal with the Science of architecture. It is hoped that by illustrating not just the Temple but also the metaphysical and symbolic meanings that underlie, the reader will be helped to understand the deepest essence of the civilization and be given opportunities to better comprehend man and his aspirations.

Empowerment and Disempowerment of the Olds
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8186921605; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The book emphasises on a deeper understanding of ageing in the society of today, viewing it as a precarious process, both at the individual and at the societal level. It takes into consideration the position of the aged within the family and in the society, and the changes that have come about over the last few decades. Effects of globalization, break-up of the joint-family system, and the growing materialism and commercialization of society make the elderly viewed only from the "economic" perspective. The book examines certain theories on gerontology, pointing out that the workable theories should focus more on application so that the aged can benefit from such theories. It analyses the literature on the old: how different scholars and specialists have viewed ageing and its different aspects like the impact of genetic influences and the environment on ageing. Based on a field study, involving elderly from all castes and religious groups both in urban and rural areas, it delves deep into the need for empowerment of the aged. It argues that religion, community and the institutional stay have a direct correlation with the empowerment and disempowerment process, which has more impact on the upper than the lower castes. It undertakes case studies and comes up with interesting and significant observation. Personal income is considered the main source of empowerment. It significantly views institutional care of the old in the context of empowerment and disempowerment, analysing factors that force the old to choose to live in the old-age homes. The volume is a meticulous research work that will prove extremely relevant to scholars and students as a sociological study on ageing and the elderly especially in the Indian context.Printed Pages: 239. 100494
