17302 L.F. Rushbrook Williams
Great Men of India
Bharatiya Kala Prakashan; Delhi, India; 2007; 8180901394; Hardcover; New; New; 
This Book is an attempt to tell the story of some of the greatest of the men who have made and are making Indian history. In the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, India herself tended to forget her great and splendid past. The legacies of her cultures, her art, her literature, the records of her History were neglected. But during the last fifty years India's national spirit has revived, and with that revival has arisen a new generation of India leaders.The subjects of this book are divided into eight sections according to the varied manifestations of their genius. Yet they might well be divided into two parts only, for any classification of the great men of India falls naturally into two main groups. There are the men who made the India of the past with its rich culture, its deep philosophical wisdom, and its stirring examples of courage and chivalry. There are the men of to-day who, turning again for guidance to the history of their land, are taking the best from the past, and making of it a foundation on which to build an even greater India of the future.

Lalita-Sahasranama: A Comprehensive Study of One Thousand Names of Lalita Maha Tripurasundari (With Original Text in Sanskrit, Roman Transliteration and Critical Explanation of Each Name) (Tantra in Contemporary Researches: 2)
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2017; 8124603537; Fourth Edition; Softcover; New; 15 x 22 Cm 
In the Hindu sacred literature, Sahasra-namas: the texts embodying literally "the Thousand Names" of a deity, constitute a genre in their own right. And Lalita-Sahasranama (LS) is a veritable classic in the traditional writings of the kind -- a classic widely acknowledged for its lucidity, clarity and poetic excellence. A medieval work of unknown authorship eulogising Shakti: the Mother Goddess, this Sahasranama is not just a masterly exposition of Shri Lalita's cult, but also sets out the deity's diverse epithets -- like, for instance, Kundalini, Nirguna, Saguna, Parashakti or Brahman -- which continue to evoke reverence as mantras with 'mystic powers'. Also included among these names are the goddess's other panegyric descriptions that have come to have profound, esoteric connotations in tantric practices -- epitomizing, thus, the fundamental tenets of tantrashastra. Here is a brilliant critical edition of Lalita-Sahasranama meticulously analysing, for the first time, each of Shri Lalita's thousand names -- by a variety of themes, like the Goddess's conceptual representations, anthropomorphic forms, disposition, abodes, kinships/consorts, ritualistic worship, and her supremacy in pantheonic hierarchy. Also explaining and interpreting anew these thousand names on the basis of time-honoured commentaries, Dr. Joshi under-scores the high importance of Lalita-Sahasranama in philosophy, tantra, yoga, sahasranama literature, and rituals of various descriptions. The book includes the original Sanskrit text of LS, its romanised transliteration and, additionally, an Appendix listing Sri Lalita's thousand names in the A-Z sequence.Printed Pages: 491 with 7 coloure illustrations. 100462

Bioinformatics and Bioprogramming in C
Universities Press; Hyderabad, India; 2009; Fifth Edition; Paperback; New; 156 x 240 Mm 
With the flood of information originating from genome sequencing projects, biology is being transformed from a laboratory-based science into an information science. Now, a stage has been reached where students and scholars of biology cannot study or carry out research in biology without using the tools of computers and bioinformatics—tools which an ordinary biologist may not be proficient in. Bioinformatics and Bioprogramming in C is designed to introduce C language to the biology, biochemistry, microbiology and biotechnology community as a tool for solving biological problems. To help in understanding the concepts, most of the terminology used is biocentric and the programs written help in real-life problems like gene sequence analysis and prediction. The book moves gradually from simple ideas to more complex programming concepts, thus equipping the reader to comprehend the case studies on dynamic programming and PAM matrices included at the end. Special Features The programs in the book are all bio-centric. Hands-on approach Has already been prescribed as a textbook in Osmania University for bioinformatics students Printed Pages: 274. 028493

The Doctrine and Discipline of Advait Vedant
New Bharatiya Book Corporation; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8183150993; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Advait vedant is not only the highest philosophy but also the Religion which has influenced Indian culture literature and the way of life tremendously not only in India, but world abroad. It has a universal philosophical and religious message to deliver that can appeal the people from every nook and corner of the world. Swami Vivekanand and Ramtirth are among the dedicated men who for the first time proclaimed the message of Vedant before the world and rejuvenated Indian culture and religious consciousness. Both the Saints had a powerful personality and were sensitive to the present problems and potentialities of India and her people.Present work is a compendious study of Advait Vedant with special reference to Vivekanand and Ramtirth's doctrines and views. The Book sincerely and thoroughly deals the subject with all its aspects as the great teacher Shankar expressed in his classical works and the Advaitism of the two savants. The contribution of the two saints is treated fully. This book presents Vedant as a practical, universal, spiritualistic and the philosophy of our age with a new religious outlook to the needs of the contemporary world.Printed Pages: 388. 104108

Indian English: A Bibliographical Guide to Resources
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1988; 8121202361; Hardcover; New; New; 
English is a Window to the world today. Approximately 700 million people speak English as their Mother Tongue and in 33 Countries 300 million people use it as a second language. In 56 countries 100 million people us it as a foreign language.English played the role of the common Language between the British rulers and their Indian subjects as its being the official language of the Raj. It is still recognised as an associate official language.Indian Writing in English which started as a trickle in 1801 grew tremendously in the present century. It has produced such outstanding writers like Sri Aurobindo, Mahatma Gandhi, Sarojini Naidu, Jawaharlal Nehru, R.K. Narayan, Raja Rao, Mulk Raj Anand, Nirad C. Chaudhuri and a host of others. Sixty per cent of publications in India are still in English.No systematic and exhaustive Bibliography was available on Indian English. The absence of such a tool made the Study and Research in the area a time consuming and arduous task for scholars. L.S. Ramaiah has ably filled in the vacuum by his well-researched work.This volume is a professionally classified bibliography of all the writings on Indian English to date. All sources available in India have been consulted and compiled to make it as exhaustive as possible. Scholars, researchers, journalists, and lovers of Indian English will find the bibliography a worthwhile reference work.Printed Pages: 155. 105693

Bengal District Gazetteer: Santhal Parganes
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1999; 817268021X; Hardcover; New; New; 
The preparation of district, provincial and Imperial gazetteers was part of a tradition set up by the Raj. British civilians in India undertook the preparation of these enormously useful projects under their supervision. District officers or Deputy Commissioners assisted in the collection of material and often wrote entire report themselves. These official records provide a wealth of material on all aspects of the regions covered be they districts or provinces. They also include detailed information about the inhabitants, their way of life, habits, customs, religious rites and rituals, festivals and indeed every thing concerning them. This reprint of a District Gazetteer deals with the picturesque region known as the Santal Parganas in Pre-Independencce India. Santal Parganas comprised the area bounded in the north by the districts of Bhagalpur and Purnea in present day Bihar; on the eastern side by Birbhum, Murshidabad and Malda; on the southern boundary by Burdwan and Manbhum; and in the west by Hazaribagh and Bhagalpur. A part of the Bengal Presidency, it derived its name from the colourful tribe the Santal who inhabited the area. This tribal community even today consists of one of the largest, most cohesive and resilient tribes in eastern India. They have certainly been the most written about in song and literature beginning from the days of the Raj. E.G. man in his Sonthalia and the Santhals describes them as â??an uncouth, truth-telling, savage tribe differing entirely from their immediate neighbours in their physique, habits and superstitions. But he has also remarked on the faithful similarity of views on the ideas of race, religious ceremonies and customs, held by Santhals living as far apart as 300 miles. This timely reprint of a district gazetteer should be invaluable as a reference tool for researchers today. Anthropologists and sociologists will also find substantial material for a restudy of these fascinating people while the lay reader will delve into its pages with great profit. Some of the topics dealt with by the author, L.S.S.O` Malley I.C.S. are physical aspects, history, the people agriculture and land revenue administration, natural calamities, means of communication, local self-government and general administration Printed Pages: 311. 112180

In the present work which is a critique of Vedanta the author has applied Dr. A.N. Whitehead's approach to philosophy and in particular his definition of an entity which entails a process metaphysics. Having deeply studied the ultimate metaphysical positions of the Vedantic School of thought, he has subjected the three well-known systems of Advaita, Visistadvaita and Dvaita to a critical analysis in the light of rational metaphysics based on an adequate analysis of our common and immediate experience in its widest scope. This book is an original attempt which is bound to stimulate new thinking among protagonists of India's Vedanta philosophy. This work is an unprecedented critical exposition of the logical structure of three main Vedantic schools and merits consideration by all lovers of truth in philosophy. Printed Pages: 292. 001258

17386 Lady Herringham
Ajanta Frescoes
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8173051240; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 28 x 43 Cm 
"Ajanta is the great surviving monument of the painting created by the Buddhist faith and fervour in the land which gave birth to that religion. The most beautiful of these paintings are taken from the Jataka stories, the legends of the earthly life of the Buddha in various successive existences. They also illustrate the court life and popular life of the time, as told in the romances and plays. "The paintings of Ajanta represents the pinnacle of an ancient tradition, even the earliest among them is marked by the refinement of style and technique. These painting exerted powerful influence over other regions artistic production: the beginnings of Buddhist painting in Tibet, Nepal, Central Asia, China, and Japan all can be traced to the inspiration of Ajanta. Indeed, Ajanta is unique in its scope, combining painting, sculpture, and architecture, and illustrating the development of Buddhism over the centuries of the caves' excavation. It is a Buddhist site that thrived in a Brahmanical world and at zenith of its artistic achievement it represented the pervasive classical culture of the Gupta age. "In the words of the scholar Ananda K. Coomaraswamy, "almost all that belongs to the common spiritual consciousness of Asia, the ambient in which its diversities are reconcilable, is of Indian origin in the Gupta period." The entire importance of Ajanta today lies in this legacy. Propped by the charity of kings and commoners, Buddhist monastic life hummed in an environment of artistic creativity from the second century B.C. to the seventh century A.D. "On the hundred walls and pillars of these rock-carved temples a vast drama moves before the eyes, a drama played by princes and sages and heroes, by men and women of every condition, against a marvellously varied scene, among forests and gardens, in courts and cities, on wide plains and in deep jungles, while above the messengers of heaven move swiftly across the sky. From all these emanates a great joy in the surpassing radiance of the face of the world, in the physical nobility of men and women, in the strength and grace of animals and the lovelines and purity of birds and flowers; and woven into this fabric of material beauty we see the ordered pattern of the spiritual realities of the universe. "It is this perfect combination of material and spiritual energy which marks the great periods of art. In the copies here reproduced Lady Herringham and her able lieutenants have been successful, through their perception of this characteristic of the Ajanta paintings, in conveying a great deal of the passion and energy of the original forms. "So true is the psychological character of these paintings, so remarkable the delineation of human and animal forms, so profound the spiritual portrayal of Indian life, that they may still serve today, in the absence of contemporaneous works of the kind, to represent the culture and character, rapidly changing though they now be, of the Indian people."

'The Arya Samaj is undoubtedly a potent spiritual ferment in the Punjab, combining what may be called a "Protestant" reformation of the secular abuses and legendary accretions of orthodox Hinduism with a Puritan simplification of life and a Roundhead insistence on the development of Indian intellectual life and thought. Of this movement and in this social service, Mr. Lajpat Rai has been long a leader. He adds a new service to us all by bringing its history, its aims and its achievement to the notice of the ever-growing English-reading public, not only in the United Kingdom and America, but also in India and Japan.'

The Philosophical Concept of Samskara
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 812083612X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The purpose of this book is to throw some light on the originality of the Concept of Samskara in which ritual, psychological, and philosophical aspects are intermingled. Keeping in mind the various implications of the word in the Hindu Darsanas as well as in Buddhist thought, some relevant comparisons are drawn with Western Philosophy and PsychoanalysisA review of texts and contexts shows that in domains as different as Rituals, Anthropology, Logic, Epistemology, Psychology, Ethics, Soteriological Philosophy, the concept of Samskara works like a universal key in the mind of Indian authors. The enquiry in this book based on Sanskrit and Pali texts helps to discern its denotation, connotation, evaluations. The word Samskara applies not only to the Hindu Life-cycle perfective rites which imprint the psyche, but also to all sorts of "psycho-physical compositions", dynamic traces and tendencies, predispositions, habits, traits of character. These morally qualified residuelle impressions: bodily, vocal, mental, cause of memory and dreams, condition and encumber the psyche or subtle body. Although beneficial on the pragmatic level, present in instincts till refined intelligence, samskaras are considered to be obstacles in the path of deliverance (moksa), specially when, appearing as blind urges or unconscious drives. Hence the role played by samskaras, (explaining the inexplicable), in the enigmatic psycho-cosmological register of the Law of karman and the doctrine of samsara. Yoga born anti-samskaras, traceless indeed, help in de-conditioning and dis-encumbering the psyche. The book concludes that samskaras are factors of cohesion, liaison, intelligibility, mediation and continuity in space and time, mainly, factors of bondage and release.Printed Pages: 246. 102149

Movements with the Cosmic Dancer: On Pilgrimage to Kailash Manasarovar
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2006; 8178222809; Softcover; New; 
"Lakshmi Bandlamudi`s description of her journey to Kailash and Manasarover, representing as they do Purusha and Prakriti, the masculine and the feminine nature of existence, is deeply moving because she connects it to her own inner spiritual quest. Replete with mythical stories regarding Shiva and Parvati, and written with a special emphasis on the feminine, this book is a moving testament of a living faith which has persisted for thousands of years." "Lakshmi Bandlamudi`s script is a sublimely cosmic dance in itself hinting at a difficult life and a less than easy journey; she nonetheless describes her journey to Kailash the home of Shiva, as a transcendental pilgrimage of the soul. The story Tibetan territory she must traverse becomes almost irrelevant in her soul`s searching for answers to questions, which are both personal and universal." 102093

17398 Lakshmi Kannan (Author & Tr.)
Genesis: Select Stories
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125053808; Softcover; New; 
Lakshmi Kannan has translated fifteen of her own stories. In ‘Genesis’, two scholars in a US campus are kindred souls but the Indian woman is held back by generations of denial. Ancient temples with their hallowed ambience can bestow some life-affirming experiences, as in ‘Cryptic Chords’ and ‘Rhythms’. ‘Kasturi, the Musk Deer’, set in Delhi, depicts the Tamil reality of the fifties as sixteen-year-old Shankari is subjected to strict control by her orthodox family, her parents rejecting her idea of buying kasturi because its fragrance might act as an aphrodisiac. 'Mangal's Requiem’ is about the last hours in the life of a dacoit who writes poems perhaps to seek release from his anguish, revealing what the world and his mother and wife cannot grasp; the young wife experiences relief when her abusive husband hangs. ‘India Gate’ showcases the regressive, unchanging elements in the author’s community, even educated, professional women being subjected to the patriarchy of their marital homes; the female protagonist bravely decides to go it alone. ‘Sable Shadows’, based on true incidents, focuses on a form of apartheid marring even international literary events while narrating a tale of friendship and understanding between a Nigerian man and an Indian woman.Printed Pages: 228. 101884
