Architecture in India (History of Science, Philosophy and Culture in Indian Civilization, Vol. VI, Part 2)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8187586699; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
The volumes of the PROJECT ON THE HISTORY OF SCIENCE, PHILOSOPHY AND CULTURE IN INDIAN CIVILIZATION aim at discovering the main aspects of India’s heritage and present them in an interrelated way. In spite of their unitary look, these volumes recognize the difference between the areas of material civilization and those of ideational culture. The project is not being executed by a single group of thinkers and writers who are methodologically uniform or ideologically identical in their commitments. The Project is marked by what may be called ‘methodological pluralism”. Inspite of its primarily historical character, this project, both in its conceptualization and execution, has been shaped by scholars drawn from different disciplines. It is for the first time that an endeavour of such a unique and comprehensive character has been undertaken to study critically a major world civilization like India. In this volume an attempt is made to present a panoramic view of the development of art and architecture during the early and the medieval periods of Indian history in the whole country from Kashmir in the north to Kerala in the South, from Maharashtra in the west to Bengal in the east. Altogether there are sixteen research papers which have given authentic accounts about the material, technique, style and idiom of the prominent religious and secular architectural structures, sculptures and other historical monuments constructed at different times under the patronage of various rulers of great kingdoms.

Jaisalmer: Life and Culture of the Indian Desert
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8124606595; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm Oki Morihiro 
This volume juxtaposes the history, culture, occupation and the lifestyle of people in the desert district of Jaisalmer of western Rajasthan, bordering Pakistan. Popularly called the “Golden City in Desert”, the city has much more to say beyond its popular fort and palaces. Jaisalmer was an old city of commercial magnitude for centuries till the onset of British rule in India. It was en route connecting the East and West in trade. It has now been transformed to a tourist destination, enticing people from India and abroad. The book details its past glory, lost significance and the regained charm through centuries of developments. It also accounts for the brief history of Marwar, its rajas of valor, and their heroic struggle for existence and survival against foreign attacks. The picturesque portrayal of the fort, the people of Jaisalmer, their cultural, ethnic and religious mores, and the “must see” spots in the city are the quintessential focus of the book. Moving away from the city life, the book also focuses on the village life, exploring the mysteries and charm of the desert life. It unearths the hidden charms and the warmth of village life in this desert region, alongwith a brief account of occupation of people around. This connoisseur's collection would motivate also researchers of ancient monuments and history, and enthuse tourists who would like to visit the Golden City in Desert.Printed Pages: 160. 100510

Studies in History of the Deccan: Medieval and Modern
Pragati Publications; New Delhi, India; 2003; 817307075X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This Book is a collection of 28 articles from eminent scholars spread in various parts of the world who have done some serious work on the History of the Deccan during the medieval and modern periods. Professor A.R. Kulkarni to whom this work is dedicated as a felicitation volume has done commendable service to the world of scholars interested in the study of medieval and modern Deccan. Various aspects of the history of the Deccan such as society, polity, economy, culture, education, art and monetary system are discussed in this work. The emphasis of this work has not been to present as chauvinistic history of a region, but to illuminate its history so as to give some coherence to this volume. This region has been chosen on the basis of the fact that Professor A.R. Kulkarni, in his long and distinguished career as Professor and founder head of the Department of History, Poona University, Chairman, Indian Council of Historical Research and Vice-Chancellor of Tilak Maharashtra Vidyapeeth, has illuminated unexplored parts of this geographical segment helping us to understand our past. He inspired a number of scholars to take up the history of this region for their research and teaching. This justifies the title of the book and its contents.Printed Pages: 352. 101202

India Wins Freedom
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8125005145; Reissue; Paperback; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
One of the makers of modern India tells the story of the partition of India as never before, with intimate knowledge and feeling. India Wins Freedom has at last won its own freedom. The full text of this autobiographical narrative was confined, under seal, in the National Library, Calcutta, and in the National Archives, New Delhi, for thirty years. What we now have is the complete text, released in September 1988, by a court directive. Not only have all the words and phrases of the original been reproduced, the original tone and temper have been fully restored. The text now reveals that the controversy that has simmered for so long about the hitherto unpublished pages, was fully justified. Printed Pages: 283. 033442

Dravidian Studies: Selected Papers Introduction by BH. Krishnamurthi
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1994; 8120808584; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Of these 27 articles on Dravidian subjects, 23 deal with linguistic topics, several ranging through the Dravidian family as a whole; others concentrate on specific languages, such as Toda, Kota, Kodagu, Brahui, but all attempt to fit specific language data into the comparative study the languages of the family. The author has realized that the comparative study of a language family depends on the firm identificatioin of etymologies, and several of the papers concentrate on etymological study. Such general questions as India as a some-what unified linguistic area, or the structure of personal names, or the ethnological basis of some lexical items, appear in several papers. Four of the papers are on specific Toda subjects; in three of these the approach is in the first place linguistic. These results of some 50 years of study further knowledge of the Dravidian component of India`s people and culture.Printed Pages: 495. 102551

Amazing Arunachal Pradesh: Land, People, Culture
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8173054495; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 22 x 31 Cm 
The present volume is a comprehensive illustrated survey of land and people of tribal dominated Arunachal Pradesh which attained statehood in 1987. The relationship of the land and people of Arunachal Pradesh with the Indian civilization has a very long past. This is evident from various myths and legends, Buranjis-the Ahom Chronicle, and from archaeological sites. The records of Hiuen Tsang mention the hill people of this region he had encountered during his travel to India in the early part of the seventh century. Muhammad Kasim in the days of Aurangzeb has also mentioned the Daflas (the present Nyishis) of this region. The Monpa and Khampti communities have been professing Buddhism and thereby have contact with the Buddhist centres in the country. Neo-Vaishnavism of Assam, as propounded by Sankardev, had inroad to Nocte community before the British came to the region. The existence of the pilgrim centre Parashuram Kund dates back to the time of composition of Kalika Puran and Yogini Tantra, i.e., 8th century AD. Archaeological sites at Malinithan, Bismakanagar, Naksaparvat and other places trace the connection at least to the 13th-14th century. Needless to say, the tribal communities were not living in absolute isolation, but with some degree of interaction or contact with the Indian civilization. This volume makes an illustrative presentation of the land and people along with their traditions and the transition noticed in various communities of Arunachal Pradesh for the common readers. In the process of presentation, the commonalities and differences in the lifestyle of similar and different ethnic groups have been highlighted. Printed Pages: 192. 100131

Globalising Rural Development: Competing Paradigms and Emerging Realities
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0761934790; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Ever since rural development emerged as an independent field of inquiry in the 1950s, it has been subjected to many changes in emphasis and ideology. These changing perspectives have resulted in shifts in policies and programmes and have influenced the international discourse on rural development. The recently initiated process of globalisation has brought in its wake yet more rethinking on the most appropriate approach to rural development. Conceived against this background, this volume examines the impact of the changing paradigm of rural development on poverty alleviation, equity, gender, food security, employment and sustainability. The volume’s major concern is: Can the goals of rural development be achieved in a globalised world? The central argument is that the new paradigm of rural development reflects the core-periphery dichotomy, in which the core imposes on the periphery—in a top down approach—in all major interventions. As a result, maintain the contributors, the new paradigm is ridden with limitations in addressing the highly differentiated needs and contexts of rural development both in developing and developed countries. Divided into four sections including the introduction, the volume -examines the inherently contradictory relationship between the new development paradigm and the goals of rural development; -studies the new role of the state and state-led interventions in the context of globalisation, and the role and potential of NGOs in rural development; - highlights the rural livelihood framework and the impact of endogenous efforts at rural development in various European and Asian countries; and, -presents participatory methods for addressing problems like food security, women’s empowerment, and poverty alleviation.

Hindu Religion and Ethics
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1994; 8173050481; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 x 20 Cm 
The Book discusses in length the myths, beliefs, systems, traditions, rites, rituals, ceremonials, thought, scriptures and philosophies of Hinduism. The book would prove to be useful to all those who want to understand the basic nature of Hinduism. The Religion based on the Vedas, the Sanatoria Dharma, or Vaidika Dharma is the oldest oflivingreligions, and stands unrivalled in the depth and splendour of its philosophy, while it yields to none in the purity of its ethical teachings, and in the flexibility and varied adaptations of its rites and ceremonies. Of undesirable antiquity it has grown through the ages in its present forum. The present volume discusses in length the myths, beliefs, systems, traditions, rites, rituals, ceremonials, thought, scriptures and philosophies of Hinduism. Divided into three parts and eleven chapters, the book begins with a learned introduction defining Sanatana Dharma. In its various chapters, the authors have tried to explain the complex character and beliefs of Hinduism supported by extracts from Sanskrit scriptures and simple interpretations. The text discusses concepts like 'the One' (the Brahman), manifest and unmanifest, karma, rebirth, purity, rites, four-stages of life, caste-system and related issues in a lucid manner. The book would prove to be useful to all those who want to understand the basic nature of Hinduism. It is hoped that the book would be welcomed in India and outside, by scholars, students and common readers. Printed Pages: 420. 100259

Folklore, Public Sphere and Civil Society
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/National Folklore Support Centre; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8190148141; Hardcover; New; New; 
The discipline of folklore has always addressed the travel of folklore by consistently paying attention to several versions of the same texts and by offering meticulous sociological accounts for their existence. The philosophical premise of acknowledging versions even when they are contradictory lends itself, by expansion, to a vision of a multitude of public spheres inside a civil society. The emerging vision of society is one of polyphonic concert punctuated by recognizable gestures. What we see is a "performing society" that generates public opinion not necessarily through rational verbal arguments and dialogues but also through gestures, genres, frames, versions, performances, stories, narratives and codes.It is precisely in this context that folklore studies reveal how communities break hierarchies, articulate aspirations that are political and otherwise, constitute new identities, establish inter-cultural contacts and undergo changes through cultural borrowings. As identities are constantly created and recreated, what we encounter through folklore is a complex cultural phenomenon not necessarily rational but in alignment with the logic of the cultures concerned. Such processes do create and influence public opinion.Printed Pages: 327. 101713

A Comparative Study of All Sanskrit Grammars
Bharatiya Kala Prakashan; Delhi, India; 2001; 8180902226; Hardcover; New; New; 
The present work, the comparative study of all Sanskrit Grammars to scholars. Grammar composition is a very delicate and difficult task in the sense that it is both a science as well as an art. it is science in the sence that it should be objective, formal and at the same time comprehensive of all the linguistic data. Also it is an art in sense that the skill of framing grammatical rules depends upon the individual grammarian. We can see that the linguistic activity in India, which started from pre-Vedic times and was carried on by the post-Vedic grammarians and linguistics like Panini was further carried on even after Panini?s times in spite of the fact that Panini?s grammar was a master-piece in grammar composition and threw back all the pre Paninian grammars into total oblivion. Thus, the whole subject of the coparative study of all Sanskrit grammars with special reference to past passive participles is treated on modern linguistic and not only on pure traditional grammatical leve. This linguistic approach has given out certain interesting and important conclusions. In the present work, the study and comparison in mainly centered round the problem of finding out and comparing the grammatical principles of language-description and the techniques employed by the grammarians to arrive at the formations available in usages.

Jaiprakash Ki Aakhiri Jail Emergency Ka Kuchakra
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789380828206; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
The country is reminded about JP today as never before. There is hopelessness and despair all around. Corruption has become a monster and people want change at all cost. Anna movement galvanized the nation against corruption but could not translate the support into an organized movement for social change. This book will guide and inspire those who want to become the instruments of change. It is a moving history about JP how he came into the movement despite his failing health. Noted poet Ramdhari Singh Dinkar prayed to Lord Tirupati that rest of his life be given to JP to lead the movement. Dinkar died in the lap of JP in Ramnath Goenka's house and thus was born the JP Movement. This book is about: The deep-dark period of autocracy (1975-77) in India. Those were months of draconian laws, extinguished freedom, Gestapo-type arrests, severe Press censorship, forced sterilization and abject surrender marked by terror of the minions and slavery of the elites that made India a fascist-type police state. The return of the sunlight of democracy due largely to the defiance of a 73-year old Jayaprakash Narayan, a congenital democrat. The Emergency was not only the defeat of JP and his movement against corruption, inflation and misrule, but also of the entire population that loved freedom. The state power of Indira Gandhi lost whereas the moral authority of JP won. Vulnerability of India's institutions of governance and how effectively the President, Union Cabinet, Parliament, Supreme Court, Governors, State Assemblies, senior civil servants, police and intelligence agencies and the Press were manipulated by a dictatorial prime minister and exploited by her 'unprincipled' son. New perspective on the movement in view of the classified papers accessed by the author.Printed Pages: 240. 104700

JP Movement-Emergency and India’s Second Freedom
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380828619; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The deep-dark period of autocracy (1975-77) in India imposed by a 58-year old Indira Gandhi. Those were months of draconian laws, extinguished freedom, Gestapo type arrests, severe press censorship, forced sterilization, impotency of intellectuals and abject surrender marked by terror of the minions and slavery of the elites that made India a fascist-type police state. The return of the sunlight of democracy due largely to the defiance of a 73-year old Jayaprakash Narayan (JP) popularly called Loknayak, a congenital democrat. Emergency was not merely the defeat of JP and his Movement against corruption, inflation and misrule, but that of the entire people. The state power of Indira Gandhi lost where as the moral authority of Jp Won. Vulnerability of India 's Institiutions Of governance and how effectively the president, Union Cabinet, Parliament, Supreme Court, Governors, State Assemblies, senior civil servants, police and intelligence agencies and the Press were manipulated by a determined prime minister and exploited by an unprincipled son 'operating from behind her sari. Above all, the crucial chapters of India 's post-Independence history – JP Movement, Emergencyy and Second Freedom that have been blacked-out from school-texts, books, forums, media and other avenues – placing it before the people of India in its true perspective. This would open up the wounds for the older generation and the new ones to see the truth as to how the nation has been bleeding and how freedom and democracy. Which they all take for granted was virtually extinguished and then restored by the indomitable spirit and sacrifice of a patriot called Jayaprakash Narayan.Printed Pages: 288. 104701

Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2006; 8174364293; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 8.5 x 5.5 Inches 
When Indira Gandhi declared a state of Emergency in 1975, the people of India were deprived of their freedom and fundamental rights. The event remains a dark chapter in the history of the sub-continent. Jayaprakash Narayan, branded ‘Enemy No.1’ of the State, was arrested under MISA (Maintenance of Internal Security Act) and dispatched to Chandigarh’s ‘Emergency Jail’. Faced with the State’s brute force, individuals and institutions surrendered and the world’s largest democracy was drifting towards dictatorship. JP, who had tirelessly toiled for the triumph of freedom, dared the might of Emergency dictatorship and fought to restore democracy in India. During JP’s six-month confinement, India’s ‘Second Mahatma’ trans-formed defeat into triumph; the ‘Delhi Durbar’ indulged in a series of intrigues to isolate and incapacitate him and reconciliation between Indira Gandhi and JP was sabotaged by a ‘coterie’ wielding ‘veto power’. A riveting first-person, authentic and uncensored account by M.G. Devasahayam, who as District Magistrate and Inspector-General, Prisons, at the time, was in effect JP’s custodian, and closely associated with him throughout his confinement.

The In-Between World of Vikram Lall
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0670058041; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
It is 1953 in colonial Kenya, and eight-year-old Vikram Lall witnesses the celebration of Queen Elizabeth's coronation, even as the Mau Mau guerilla war challenges British rule. Vic and his sister Deepa, whose grandfather came to Kenya from Punjab to build the railways, must find their place in this uncertain world of violent upheaval, confusing loyalties and conflicting ideologies. And among their newly acquired playmates, the brother and sister, neither Black nor White, find themselves in between British Bill and Annie, and the African Njoroge. These friendships will haunt them the rest of their lives. We follow Vic from the changing Africa of the fifties, to the sixties—a time that holds immense promise. But when that hope is betrayed by the corruption, fear and repression of the seventies and eighties, Vic finds himself drawn into the official orbit of graft and power-brokering. Njoroge, on the other hand, can abandon neither the idealism of his youth nor his love for Deepa. Neither the cynicism of the one nor the idealism of the other can avert the tragedies that await. Acute and bittersweet, vividly portrayed and finely nuanced, The In-Between World of Vikram Lall is told in the voice of the exiled Vic from the shores of Lake Ontario, as he contemplates the historical events that have shaped him—`one of Africa's most corrupt men'—and the choices he has made.

The Assassin's Song: A Novel
Penguin/Viking; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0670081264; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
The Assassin’s Song is a stunning evocation of the physical and emotional landscape of a man caught between filial obligation and personal yearning, between the ancient and the modern. It is the story of Karsan Dargawalla, the estranged elder son of the Saheb of Pirbaag, and of Nur Fazal, a mysterious thirteenth-century sufi saint. In the aftermath of the Gujarat violence of 2002, Karsan, heir to the now destroyed Pirbaag, shrine to the medieval sufi, begins to recall not only the rich history of his forefathers and his beloved Pirbaag but also the bittersweet journey that took him from his dusty village in Gujarat to the ivy covered campus of Harvard, and from the halls of academia to the blissful reverie of North American suburbia. Drawn back to where it all began, Karsan finds that in the circle of life, he forged his own identity independent of his father’s position and Pirbaag; lost and rediscovered his faith; watched his family be ripped apart by abandonment and death; and now, as he slowly remembers the bol of his forefathers and sings the ginans of Pirbaag, it is redemption that he seeks. But as he picks up the threads of a life he rejected decades ago, Karsan realizes there may be no absolution. A novel of grand historical sweep and intricate personal drama, The Assassin’s Song is a heartbreaking ballad of life irrevocably tainted by the bigotry of narrow thought and rigid faith.

Encyclopaedia of SAARC Nations, 3 Volumes
Kalpaz Publications/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2002; 817835067X; Hardcover; New; New; 
With the dawn of numerous new developments, having deep bearing on the security of several Regions of the globe, it was thought to be an essential phenomenon to devise security measures of South Asian countries. In fact after the end of the Second World War, several acute problems cropped up, which needed a reasonable solution. Hence the Birth of this organisation, with certain aims and objects.SAARC is a small but significant organisation comprising India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Maldives and Bangladesh. It is in fact a major socio-economic step in a long march towards a united South Asia. Although a distant dream at the moment, it's ultimate goal is the Formation of a unified zone, on the Pattern of European Union.Printed Pages: 926. 106055

Islamic Terrorism: Myth or Reality, 2 Vols
Kalpaz Publications/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2002; 817835117X; Hardcover; New; New; 
Islam is perhaps the most misunderstood Religion in the contemporary world. Thanks to half-baked works by folks, who have little Knowledge about real Islam, the situation has deteriorated further.The motivation, behind the presentation of this work is, to project the real approach, Teaching and Philosophy of Islam, viz., Militancy and violence. In fact, Islam provides no room for using Violence or coercion as a weapon to gain unholy goals through unfair means. So, whatever is in vogue these days, in the name of Criticism of Islam, as a Militant Faith or a Doctrine of life, advocating Terrorism is totally baseless, false and unethical.The objective of this Study is to erase the Myth and depict reality in an academic, empirical and convincing manner. The book, divided into two volumes, is the result of painstaking Research and a thorough analysis, without any bias or prejudice.Printed Pages: 750. 106069
