1601 Amitav Ghosh
River of Smoke
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 0143424718; Paperback; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
In September 1838 a storm blows up on the Indian Ocean and the Ibis, a ship carrying a consignment of convicts and indentured labourers from Calcutta to Mauritius, is caught up in the whirlwind. When the seas settle, five men have disappeared—two lascars, two convicts and one of the passengers. Did the same storm upend the fortunes of those aboard the Anahita, an opium carrier heading towards Canton? And what fate befell those aboard the Redruth, a sturdy two-masted brig heading East out of Cornwall? Was it the storm that altered their course or were the destinies of these passengers at the mercy of even more powerful forces? On the grand scale of an historical epic, River of Smoke follows its storm-tossed characters to the crowded harbours of China. There, despite efforts of the emperor to stop them, ships from Europe and India exchange their cargoes of opium for boxes of tea, silk, porcelain and silver. Among them are Bahram Modi, a wealthy Parsi opium merchant out of Bombay, his estranged half-Chinese son Ah Fatt, the orphaned amateur botanist Paulette and a motley collection of others in pursuit of romance, riches and a legendary rare flower. All struggle to cope with their losses—and, for some, unimaginable freedoms—in the alleys and crowded waterways of nineteenth-century Canton. As transporting and mesmerizing as an opiate induced dream, River of Smoke, book two in Amitav Ghosh’s Ibis trilogy, will soon be heralded as a masterpiece of twenty-first century literature.

1602 Amitav Ghosh
The Calcutta Chromosome
Penguin/Viking; New Delhi, India; 0143066552; First Edition; Paperback; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
In this extraordinary novel, Amitav Ghosh navigates through time and genres to present a unique tale. Beginning at an unspecified time in the future and ranging back to the late nineteenth century, the reader follows the adventures of the enigmatic L. Murugan. An authority on the Nobel Prize-winning scientist Sir Ronald Ross, who solved the malaria puzzle in Calcutta in 1898, Murugan is in search of the elusive ‘Calcutta Chromosome’. With its astonishing range of characters, advanced computer science, religious cults and wonderful portraits of Victorian and contemporary India, The Calcutta Chromosome expands the scope of the novel as we know it, as Amitav Ghosh takes on the avatar of a science thriller writer.

1608 Amitav Ghosh
The Shadow Lines
Penguin/Viking; New Delhi, India; 2009; 0143066560; Paperback; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
As a boy, Amitav Ghosh’s narrator travels across time, experiencing different worlds, all brought to life by the tales of those around him. Set against a backdrop of war and strife, each story becomes an extension of his life. Through them he traverses the unreliable planes of memory, unmindful of physical, political and chronological borders. But as he grows older, he is haunted by a seemingly random act of violence. Bits and pieces of stories, both half-remembered and imagined, come together in his mind until he arrives at an intricate, interconnected picture of the world where borders and boundaries mean nothing, mere shadow lines that we draw dividing people and nations. Out of a miraculously complex web of memories, relationships and images, Amitav Ghosh builds an intensely vivid, funny and moving story. He questions the meaning of political freedom and the force of nationalism in the modern world. Exposing the idea of the nation state as an illusion, an arbitrary dissection of people, Ghosh reveals the absurd manner in which your home can suddenly become your enemy. Printed Pages: 288. 037853

1611 Amitava Kumar
Husband of a Fanatic
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0143031899; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
In the summer of 1999, while the Kargil War was being fought, Amitava Kumar married a Pakistani Muslim. That event led to a process of discovery that made Kumar examine the relationship not only between India and Pakistan but also between Hindus and Muslims inside India. The result is this fiercely personal essay on the idea of the enemy. Written with complete honesty and with no claims to journalistic detachment, this book chronicles the complicity that binds the writer to the rioter. Unlike both the fundamentalists and the secularists, Kumar finds—or makes—utterly human those whom he opposes. More than a travelogue which takes the reader to Wagah, Patna, Bhagalpur, Karachi, Kashmir, and even Johannesburg, this book, then, becomes a portrait of the people the author meets in these places, people dealing with the consequences of the politics of faith. With a writer's eye for detail, Kumar has drawn a map of violence. Informed more by a traveller's sense of observation than a safe, academic moralism, Husband of a Fanatic refuses to monumentalize suffering—instead, it presents tragedy as ordinary, and hence, more difficult to accept easily. In a village beside the Ganges near Bhagalpur, in a psychiatric ward in Srinagar, in a classroom in Ahmedabad ... everywhere that the author goes, the reader is compelled to accompany him on a journey to the heart of hatred.

It demonstrates the use of PLA tools in the evaluation of an integrated rural development project, in impact assessment villages hits by disasters, in evaluating (in the orthodox sense) developmental organization, in evaluating a primarily agricultural development project, and in 'participatory Evaluation' of a system of Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation established for housing projects in Nepal and Sri Lanka. The book then is a combination of conceptual specification of PM&E, four case Studies from India of evaluation of different kinds of development project) where participatory tools have been used for traditional evaluation and two case studies on participatory evaluation from Nepal and Sri Lanka.

Participatory Rural Appraisal: Methods and Appications in Rural Planning (Essays in Honour of Robert Chambers)
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8180691055; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is the most comprehensive treatise available on the subject of application of methods and tools from the repertoire of Participatory Learning and Action (PLA) in micro-level planning for rural development. It contains authoritative discussions on conceptual issues, principles, databases, methodologies and case studies in PLA as applied to rural development planning. There are nine Chapters in the book. Chapter 1 is on the architecture and engineering of PLA and its sources. Chapter 2 deals with the similarities and potentials of micro-level planning and PLA, which in effect contains a clear analysis of the principles and philosophies of the two disciplines, as it were. Chapters 3 and 4, provide the soft system and the hard system approach to micro-level planning using PLA methods. The details of databases and kinds of data required for different levels of micro-level planning are in Chapter 5. Chapters 6 and 7 are case studies from Africa where PLA has been used for preparing micro-level plans. In Chapter 8, a case study exhibiting use of PLA techniques for a Block Plan in India has been included. Chapter 9 provides a tactical plan for village development from Indonesia. All these plans are real plans, involving the community in full measure. Though the primary focus of the book is on micro-level planning for rural areas, the principles and methodologies apply as much to urban planning as well. The book, like its earlier edition, will be an invaluable guide to practitioners, academicians, planners, development functionaries and government officials who are interested in participatory micro-level planning.

Bankim's Hinduism: An Autobiography of Writings by Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8178243237; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The great novelist and thinker Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay (1838–94), associated with his famous hymn ‘Vande Mataram’, is sometimes seen as mainly a creator of Hindu nationalist icons. This is unfortunate, for Bankim was an enormously learned man, a deep and subtle thinker. A relatively unknown side of his work comprises his religious and philosophical thought, in particular his carefully argued ideas on Hinduism. This collection of Bankim’s writings—many translated into English for the first time and excerpted from the author’s Complete Works in the Bengali original—brings out some of the inner anxieties and ambivalence within the novelist-intellectual’s work on religion, ethics, and philosophy. By reading this book one may detect in Bankim a rational-functionalist approach to religion, as also a deepening faith and piety transcending that intellectual perspective. Bankim anticipates contemporary scholarship in claiming that Hinduism is the common name given to a variety of religious thoughts and practices; and yet, paradoxically, his writings—all penned in the colonial era of Indian subjecthood—also argue for a common Hindu heritage, as well as a unified religious and cultural world for contemporary Hindus. A substantive Introduction and detailed annotations help to situate Bankim’s life and thought in his times.Printed Pages: 379. 037529

Master on Masters
Penguin Ananda/Prakash Books; New Delhi, India; 2017; 0670089540; Hardcover; New; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
‘Vaid fluidly describes the violent turns of an emotional kaleidoscope’ India Today None Other conjures a vivid portrait of a man who is old, alone and dying. Trapped in his house, consumed with lust, shame and loathing, he scribbles his frenzied ramblings in his notebooks. But what begins as a bitter tirade transforms into an anguished meditation on loneliness and the quest for solace. In Here I Am if I Am, translated into English for the first time, a hunchback at a desolate roadside contemplates the precariousness of his own existence even as his tormented mind unravels. Hypnotic and unsettling, Vaid’s highly innovative novellas expertly explore some of our biggest anxieties: the fear of abandonment, the treachery of memory, the uncertainty of life and the imminence of death.

Is the Divine Energy of Love and Light amidst us in the form of Sri Sathya Sai Baba to bring us back to the path of Truth, Love, Righteousness, Peace and Non-violence, to usher in the "Golden Age of Peace, Love and Harmony on Earth?" Will this cleansing involve geo-physical and political upheavals of unimaginable proportions? The author, a retired researcher in the medical sciences, examines these questions in the light of our collective ancient wisdom, the teachings of Sai Baba and current scientific revelations. She also offers valuable insights into how we can empower ourselves to lead a healthy and peaceful life.Printed Pages: 294. 102489

The introduction presents a short analysis of the religious-philosophic ideas conveyed by the Naciketa story throughout the generations, based on the author's Ph.D. dissertation. It divides the Naciketa story corpus into three patterns, and leaves extensive scope for further research-literary, religious, philosophic, etc.Printed Pages: 335. 102095

Transnational Media and Contoured Markets: Redefining Asian Television and Advertising
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0761934847; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
In a world increasingly polarising into media-rich and media-poor nations, the rapid spread of satellite and cable television has triggered a vigorous debate on the globalisation of media and markets. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, media and communications technologies have been converging at an unprecendented pace worldwide. Transnational Media and Contoured Markets brings a multi-faceted perspective to bear on the transformation of the broadcast and advertising industries in Asia at the turn of the century. Drawing on case studies of satellite and cable channels across South, Southeast and Northeast Asia, the author argues that the globalisation of the media and advertising can only be understood within the broader context of economic, political, social and cultural processes within nation states, subnational regions and transborder ethnic communities. Additionally, this book raises the deeper socio-ethical issues of relentless globalisation for developing countries and transnational economies worldwide. Printed Pages: 272. 028910

This book has been written to guide a growing girl through the difficult years of adolescence and make the transition from childhood to adulthood smooth.

It is an endeavour to bridge the chasm between improper information from dubious sources and lack of information from seers. It provides useful knowledge about the anatomical, physiological and psychological developments that take place at this stage of life; helps discern the difference between normal and abnormal changes, between safe and high-risk behaviour. It educates the vulnerable teenager on reproductive health and hygiene, which is as important to her well being as physical, mental and social health. Printed Pages: 133. 110923

1653 Amrita Grover & Anju Grover Chaudhary (Eds)
Rama Janamabhoomi
Low Price Publications/D.K. Publishers Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8184541562; Hardcover; New; New; 
Ever since the demolition of the `Baburi Masjid` at Ayodhya on December 6, 1992, we have been swamped with contentious literature on this topic by numerous scholars offering varied perspectives, resulting in division amongst politicians, historians and religious groups. The material presented in this book is based on critical historical analysis and a scientific study of the land rights of Janmasthan versus `Baburi Masjid` and dispels several misleading theories on the said subject.Professor B.R. Grover examined original land revenue documents, maps of Ayodhya, recorded eyewitness accounts of travels to Ayodhya as well as Babur`s Memoirs and other documents and manuscripts available at various libraries in Persian, Arabic, Chaghatay-Turkish, Urdu, Sanskrit, Punjabi and English to arrive at the conclusions presented in this book. Among other things, Professor Grover set the record straight regarding the location of the ancient city of Ayodhya, the exact location of Janamasthan, and the ownership-occupation of the land. He established that the area on which the structure of the `Baburi Masjid` stood is a part of the Janamasthan and that despite the construction of the `mosque` on the Janamasthan site, the Hindus never surrendered their claims of worship at this site all through the centuries.One significant point clarified by Professor Grover is view held by some that the 19th century works of English and Muslim writers on the history of Awadh were biased and based upon the British `Divide-and-Rule` policy. Upon an examination of the revenue documents and judicial records, Professor Grover iterated that the tussle between the Hindus and the Muslims over Janamasthan vs. `Baburi Masjid` existed during the Nawabi period and it was not a creation of the British `Divide-and-Rule` policy. Another significant theory of the All India Baburi Masjid Committee was proved as invalid by him through an examination of Shah Jahan`s original Farman of 3rd July, 1648 that a Muslim masjid once dedicated to Allah cannot be surrendered as temple of another religious community. Based on the documentary evidence, Professor Grover concluded that `...any `masjid` constructed on the premises of a temple can be restored to the original owner-religious community to which it belonged`. This throws a significant light on the present controversy whether a temple can be re-built on the site of the masjid.The documentary evidence presented in this book will, hopefully, set the record straight and dispel the earlier fallacious theories regarding the Ayodhya controversy as well as assist in reducing political and communal discord.

In the times of Love and Longing

The love letters of Amrita and Imroz are an interesting insight into the personalities of two highly creative minds. The reader gets intimate glimpses of the extraordinary relationship between the renowned author and poet and her artist companion.The handwritten letter delivered by the government postal service was the only recourse available to Amrita and Imroz while they charted their careers in different cities, Amrita in Delhi and Imroz in Mumbai. And they discussed each day’s happening with each other, even if it took days for the other to receive the letter.The creative mind yearns for satisfaction, and for love and recognition. These letters offer a peek into these creative minds, they are also a record of social history of those times, a far cry from modern quick service times.., and therein lies the significance of the letters.Amrita Pritam (Aug. 1919 – Oct. 2005) was considered the first and most prominent woman Punjabi poet, novelist and essayist. Her most noted work was Pinjar, in which she created her memorable character, Paro, an epitome of violence against women, the novel was made into an award-winning film.Known as the most important voice for women in Punjabi literature, she became the first woman to win the Sahitya Akademi Award.

Revisiting India’s Partition: New Essays on Memory, Culture, and Politics
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8125064125; Hardcover; New; New; 
Revisiting India’s Partition: New Essays on Memory, Culture, and Politics is a contributory volume on the Partition of India on the eve of Independence. There are 19 essays in the book drawn from interdisciplinary backgrounds on several topics pertaining to the Partition, including decolonisation and post-colony, economic development and nation-building, cross-border skirmishes, terrorism, and nationalism. The volume covers areas beyond Punjab and Bengal and includes analyses of Sindh, Kashmir, Hyderabad, and more broadly South India, the Northeast, and Burma. It, in fact, extends and expands on the original notion of the ‘Long Partition’ to examine the cultural, political, economic, and psychological impact the Partition continues to have on communities in South Asia and throughout the diaspora. Useful for scholars in literary and cultural studies, history, political studies, sociology, Asian/South Asian studies, and women’s studies, the book has a thought-provoking introduction which provides a multi-vocal, multi-focal, transnational commentary on the Partition in relation to motifs, texts, and regions that have earlier been ignored.

Teaming: How Organizations Learn, Innovate and Compete in the Knowledge Economy
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8126535628; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Teaming shows that organizations learn when the flexible, fluid collaborations they encompass are able to learn. The problem is teams, and other dynamic groups, don't learn naturally. Edmondson outlines the factors that prevent them from doing so, such as interpersonal fear, irrational beliefs about failure, groupthink, problematic power dynamics and information hoarding. With Teaming, leaders can shape these factors by encouraging reflection, creating psychological safety, and overcoming defensive interpersonal dynamics that inhibit the sharing of ideas. Further, they can use practical management strategies to help organizations realize the benefits inherent in both success and failure.Printed Pages: 416. 104852

Hidden Treasures of the Himalayas: Tibetan Manuscripts, Paintings and Sculptures of Dolpo
Serindia Publications; Chicago, USA; 2010; 193247644X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 27 x 31 Cm 
In 1999, a hidden library was found in the Nesar Temple at a remote village of Bicher, in Dolpo, Nepal. It contains more than six hundred volumes of Tibetan manuscripts, ranging in date from the late 11th to the early 16th century. This library in many ways constitutes a cultural history of Dolpo in this period thanks to some sixty volumes with historical prefaces explaining the commission of the manuscripts for the Nesar Temple, while more than one hundred other volumes have illuminations of the scenes of the life of the Buddha and episodes from the Prajnaparamita (Perfection of Wisdom) texts. These illuminations inform us about the donors, their costumes, their Buddhist rituals while the dedications tell us about the systems of patronage and donation. Some illuminations reflect the ancient manuscripts of Tabo and Tholing, others reflect the sophisticated Newar aesthetic of Kathmandu and all these diverse tendencies reached Dolpo where they were appreciated.  By studying these texts within and examining the styles of the manuscript illuminations, Amy Heller was able to shed light on the history of this remote Tibetan enclave, the spread of Buddhism in the Himalayas and its artistic legacy. The manuscripts, sculptures and mural paintings discovered in Dolpo are the concrete expression of the complex economic, political, artistic and religious interactions between the people of Dolpo and their neighbours in India, Nepal, and Tibet. In addition to the illuminations selected for publication, the reader will find in this volume a complimentary DVD that includes photographs of all volumes with historic dedications, all the illuminations and historic documents preciously conserved in Bicher village. A combination of Amy Heller’s fine contributions, beautifully illustrated photographs, and a useful and accessible DVD makes this volume an important addition to the library of every scholar, collector, and academic institution with an interest in Himalayan studies.

Standardizing Written English: Diffusion in the Case of Scotland 1520-1659
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 1989; 0521364469; First Edition; Hard Cover; Fine; 16 Cms x 24 Cms 
This book offers a new view of the linguistic process of standardization, the movement of specific language features towards uniformity. Drawing on theoretical arguments and empirical data, it examines the way in which linguistic conformity develops out of variation, and the textual and social factors which influence this process. After defining and clarifying the general theoretical issues involved, Professor Devitt takes as a specific case study the standardization of written English in Scotland in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and shows that standardization is a gradual process, that it encompasses periods of great variation, and that it occurs concurrently with sociopolitical shifts. The interrelationship of linguistic features, genres, and social pressures shapes the nature and direction of standardization. This is a readable and accessible book which will appeal to those involved in the study of Scots-English, and is of importance for linguistic methodology and the study and teaching of literacy.This book offers a new view of the linguistic process of standardization, the movement of specific language features towards uniformity.

This is a guide to Portuguese usage for students who have already acquired the basics of the language and wish to extend their knowledge. It covers both the Brazilian and the European varieties of the language, and differentiates clearly between them.

It also contains a special chapter for students who are familiar with Spanish, highlighting key similarities and differences between the two languages. Careful consideration is given throughout to questions of style, register, and politeness which are essential to achieving an appropriate level of formality or informality in writing and speech. Clear, readable and easy to consult via its two indexes, this is an essential reference for learners seeking access to the finer nuances of the Portuguese language. • The latest in our unique and highly successful series of books on contemporary language use • Helps the intermediate learner grappling with issues of style and register in Portuguese; special chapter for students already familiar with Spanish provides guidance on similarities and differences • Clearly laid out with two indexes (Portuguese and English) for ease of access Contents 1.

1693 Anagha Joshi
Sambhuya Samutthana (An Ancient Indian Form of Co-Operative Enterprises)
New Bharatiya Book Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8183151388; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Here, we have given a idea of Sambhuya Samutthana as surveyed through Vedic period to modern period. The principle "rising up by coming together' is widely applicable in all types of cooperative activity. So co-operation is the ladder to rise up. Definitely there are changes which naturally occur in the course of the long period of time. But this principle has not changes at all. To conclude, one may say that in the beginning the concept of Sambhuya Samutthana (Le. The first cooperative enterprise) was related to the Vedic sacrifice only, but as time went on we find the form of Sambhuya Samutthana developed through various stages up to the modern concept of partnership.Printed Pages: 174. 104082

1696 Anamika Pathak
Pashmina
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8174362398; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 9 x 9 Inches National Museum, New Delhi and Victoria & Albert Museum, London 
A four-thousand-year-old sandstone bust depicts a bearded priest covering his left shoulder with a shawl or mantle. Even today Indian men wear shawls similarly. In fact, the woollen tradition in India spans more than four millennia, right from the days of the ancient Indus civilization. Pashmina is an adventure of considerable scope and daring, taking you through a grand tour of the finest fabric known to the world. Its subject matter is nothing less than Indian textile history brought up to date with the patterns and colours of present-day attire. At first, the book presents an overview: the royal patronage that nourished the industry, the techniques that went into the making of a pashmina shawl, the slow and subtle evolution of brilliant motifs. It then goes on to present a more detailed picture: individual patterns, their differences in style, and their continuity with or departure from tradition. A brilliantly illustrated book, Pashmina brings out vividly, in colour and in detail, the particular inspiration that guides each thread within a pashmina fabric.

1699 Anand A. Yang
Bazaar India: Markets, Society, and the Colonial State in Gangetic Bihar
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8121509262; First Indian Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
The present edition of the writings of the late Indrani Ray has been planned around certain identifiable factors that determined India's changing tryst with the Indian Ocean in the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. While the protagonist in these writings is the Indian merchant, the biographer is the French East India Company's Official. Using a wide array of French sources, the author reconstructed the changing world of the Indian merchant as he rubbed shoulders with the European trading companies in the palmy decades of the seventeenth century and retreated into his shell in the turbulent decades of the eighteenth. Taken together, these essays underscore both the prosperity and vitality of Indian trade in the seventeenth century as well as its inherent fragility in the face of political uncertainty and unrestrained competition in the succeeding years. The conclusions arrived at, tend to reinforce some of the better known propositions about the nature and orientation of pre-modern Indian trade and the making of its material context. Individually, the essays constitute important interventions in ongoing debates about the extent and logic of Mughal decline, the benevolence of the Mughal state towards matters maritime and about the relative importance of European trade vis-à-vis Asian trade in the economy of eighteenth century Bengal. The Introduction attempts to identify these interventions and knit the essays around the current debates on the eighteenth century crisis in Indian history. The introduction, will help to situate the relevance of the French connection in the complex trading grid of the Indian Ocean. The fact that the French were the most serious rivals of the English for empire and very nearly succeeded in the imperial game is often obscured in the flush of English victories. In terms of the historiography on maritime India, this has meant a subtle neglect of French language sources in the reconstruction of the trading world of the Indian merchant and seafarer. That this omission is entirely unwarranted is amply borne out by Indrani Ray's analysis of French archival sources and documents like the Roques' manuscript, which in terms of both range and detail is of enduring value.
