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.

The papers included in this book explore recent issues related to the socio-economic position of women in tribal and rural societies.

The Gardeners Song
IndiaInk/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8186939350; Softcover; New; 
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.

Nazrul, The Poet Remembered is a beautifully produced book in the format of a photo album—a personal approach to understand the towering presence behind an astonishing corpus of one of the most influential Bengali poets of the twentieth century. The life of Kazi Nazrul Islam (1899-1976) is an extraordinary story of courage and determination as he faced political challenges of British imperialism and personal challenges of poverty and socio-religious prejudices. he countered these with a rebellious spirit advocating equality and justice. 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

16540 Kalyani Menon-Sen and Gautam Bhan
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.

16544 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

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

16590 Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay
Inner Recesses Outer Spaces: Memoirs
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 9789383098392; Hardcover; New; New; 
1903-47 marks a period of fundamental change in India. A strong force swept the country, which compelled the world to recognise the power of spiritual energy. Mahatma Gandhi evolved the spiritual methods, and a rare band of individuals adopted them. Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay is such a person who changed the course of her comfortable existence to join the national struggle first as a Sevika-volunteer, later designated as an organiser of women workers in the Indian National Congress and finally as a member of the National Working Committee of the Congress. In this book Kamaladevi describes the events of the turbulent years as she lived and experienced them. She writes about her close association with fascinating leaders of the nationalist movement including Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Rabindranath Tagore, Sarojini Naidu, Motilal Nehru, Acharya Kriplani, Jayaprakash Narayan. She spent a total of 5 years in jail, and here recalls some of her experiences. After Independence, Kamaladevi left the Congress, and did not join the government though invited to in several capacities. She did not consider it necessary to be in political power to execute powerful ideas. The urgent task before her was rehabilitation of the refugees. She sought Gandhiji’s advice who promised her his support on condition she generated her own energy and labour and did not depend on the government. She set up the Indian Cooperative Union. She persuaded thousands of homeless refugees from West Pakistan to mobilise their internal strength, and to rebuild theirlives through their own labour, through cooperatives. The original township of Faridabad in Haryana is testimony to the combined efforts of the refugees who had lost hope, and the persons who restored their faith in themselves. Kamaladevi has focussed on revival of the theatre, puppetry and handicrafts as a component of cultural renaissance in the country. Travelling to inaccessible areas in search of authentic handicrafts, she remarked, “There is so much beauty in the simple articles which are used in village homes. But we have forgotten to honour the craftsperson.” As chairperson of the All India Handicrafts Board, she introduced national awards to be conferred on worthy craftsmen. Women’s advancement has been the focus of Kamaladevi’s activities, and she has not only lobbied for national social legislation, but has also promoted farreaching educational reforms. The book contains important accounts of outstanding women of the period-Bhikaji Cama, Annie Besant, Margaret Cousins and others. Kamaladevi has travelled widely in Asia, Europe, America and Africa. She has a reputation for being an adventurer, both in her journeys and her ideas. Author of several books, Kamaladevi has a subtle style of expression, and in this book she chronicles the tumultuous events in her personal and national life with intensity and humour. Above all, the book filters an exquisite light on the personality of the author, with her deep commitment to human dignity.Printed Pages: 424. 106513

The Top of the Raintree
IndiaInk/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 818693930X; Softcover; New; 
In The Top of the Raintree, Kamalini Sengupta deftly explores Calcutta in its heyday. Intricate personal, social, political and religious ironies are reflected through the surreal, the mundane and the real, The Rajmahal, a magnificent turn-of-the-century Calcutta mansion on Chowringhee, is imbued with a life of its own, its spaces inhabited by pigeons, ghosts and a diversity of tenants. Surjeet Shona, a complex hybrid, gets involved with the tenants, and their problems - a British couple adjusting to the new India, a Russian patron of Bengali theatre overwhelmed by the Great Bengal famine, an Anglo-Indian widow fighting alcoholism, an ageing Bengali fobbing off a younger brother desirous of his inheritance and an elegant Muslim family caught in the post-Partition Hindu-Muslim dichotomy. Brick by brick, the mansion grows old; chapter by chapter, stereotypes tumble. Printed Pages: 293. 108501

The Granth of Guru Gobind Singh: Essays, Lectures, and Translations
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2015; 0199458979; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In the Granth of Guru Gobind Singh, the authors offer new insights into the Sikh scripture Dasam Patshah Ka Gra?th , or the Dasam Gra?th, which has traditionally been attributed to Guru Gobind Singh. While many studies have adopted a polemic approach and focused on the authorship of the text, this book takes a multi-disciplinary approach and considers the relationship of the scripture with the newly discovered manuscripts, apocryphal translations, and relics. The manuscript tradition of the Gra?th shows how it was written and compiled during Guru Gobind Singh's time and how its compositions were transmitted through material items such as swords. The authors have included in this volume translations of selected compositions from the scripture. This book, in essence, takes the reader through relevant history of the Sikh dharam and establishes the centrality of the Dasam Gra?th within it.Printed Pages: 298. 104498

Globalisation, Governance Reforms and Development in India
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2007; 978076193583; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Globalisation has emerged as a very powerful force affecting the whole world. In case of Third World Countries it is manifest in the introduction of a set of neoliberal reforms at the behest of multilaterals such as the World Bank and International Monetary fund under the tutelage of the trinity of advanced capitalist countries headed by u.s. representing the interests of global finance and corporates, but also with the cooperation of ruling regimes in many instances. Such reforms have been introduced in India starting with the BoP crises of 1991, which marks a clear shift in the model of development adopted in the country, from a state-directed model to a market-centred model. Globalisation amply benefits the privileged all over but adversely affects the marginalised peoples and countries in the world. This book provides a theoretico-conceptual overview of globalisation, and an analysis of state-level reforms, and the social, cultural and political dimensions of globalisation and reforms in India. This volume will be of much interest to researchers, teachers and students, The issues discussed in the volume will also draw the attention of civil society organisations and NGOs engaged in advocacy activities.
