Hymns of Guru Naka (Illustrated)
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2006; 8125011617; Reissue; Hardcover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
In this translation of some of Guru Nanak’s finest devotional poems, the fifteenth century founder of the Sikh religion points the way to self-realisation by love, devotion, and service to man and God. The hymns have as direct and strong a message today as they did when they were first composed. The elements of faith and passion are sensitively brought out in Arpita Singh’s paintings which, in colour and inspired drawing, heighten the aesthetic and spiritual dimensions of Guru Nanak’s divine verse.

Burial at Sea
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0143032615; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
In this, his first novella in five years, one of India’s most widely read authors returns to territories he knows best: twentieth-century Indian history, bogus religion, and sexuality. After Nehru, Victor Jai Bhagwan is Mahatma Gandhi’s favourite Indian—a brilliant young man with the temperament of a leader and fiercely committed to his country. Though Victor adores and respects Gandhi, he disagrees with the Mahatma’s vision for the future of India. He returns from university in England determined to bring the benefits of modern industry to the subcontinent and, within a few years of India’s independence, becomes the country’s biggest tycoon. But this is not the only ideal of Gandhi’s that he defies: facing a midlife crisis, he falls passionately in love with a tantric god-woman (who keeps a tiger as her pet and has a dubious past). She introduces him to the pleasures of unbridled sexuality, but also becomes the reason for his downfall. Comic, tender and erotic by turns, Burial at Sea is vintage Khushwant Singh.

Truth, Love and a Little Malice: An Autobiography
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2002; 0143029576; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Born in 1915 in pre-Partition Punjab, Khushwant Singh, perhaps India’s most widely read and controversial writer, has been witness to most of the major events in modern Indian history—from Independence and Partition to the Emergency and Operation Blue Star—and has known many of the figures who have shaped it. With clarity and candour, he writes of leaders like Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi, the terrorist Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, the talented and scandalous painter Amrita Shergil, and everyday people who became butchers during Partition. Writing of his own life, too, Khushwant Singh remains unflinchingly forthright. He records his professional triumphs and failures as a lawyer, journalist, writer and member of Parliament; the comforts and disappointments in his marriage of over sixty years; his first, awkward sexual encounter; his phobia of ghosts and his fascination with death; the friends who betrayed him, and also those whom he failed.

Delhi: A Novel
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 0140126198; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
Thus begins Khushwant Singh’s vast, erotic, irrelevant magnum opus on the city of Delhi. The principal narrator of the saga, which extends over six hundred years, is a bawdy, ageing reprobate who loves Delhi as much as he does the hijda whore Bhagmati—half man, half woman with sexual inventiveness and energy of both the sexes. Travelling through time, space and history to ‘discover’ his beloved city, the narrator meets a myriad of people—poets and princes, saints and sultans, temptresses and traitors, emperors and eunuchs—who have shaped and endowed Delhi with its very special mystique… And as we accompany the narrator on his epic journey we find the city of emperors transformed and immortalized in our minds for ever.

Obituaries: Death at My Doorstep
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2009; 817436708X; First Edition; Paperback; New; 8.5 x 5.5 Inches 
For Khushwant Singh who wrote his own obituary in his twenties, death is not sacred but he reflects on it increasingly these days. In Death At My Doorstep, a collection of obituaries written over the years, he presents the dead in death, as in life—good, bad or ugly. Be it on the twilight hours of Bhutto, the gory end of Sanjay Gandhi, the sycophantic M.O. Mathai, the Marxist millionaire Rajni Patel, the overbearing Lord Mountbatten, or on his pet Alsatian Simba, each obituary bears out his irreverence or affection. Cocking a snook at death, he has also penned his own epitaph. Yet outliving those whom he admired has moved him to tears, and many of his obituaries have left the reader with a heavy heart. While Death At My Doorstep is Khushwant Singh’s demystification of death, it also ferries his message to Badey Mian, in the words of Allama Iqbal: Baagh-e-bahisht say mujhay hukm-e-safar diya thha kyon? Kaar-e-Jahaan daraaz hai, ab meyra intazaar kar. (Why did you order me out of the garden of paradise? I have a lot of work that remains unfulfilled; now you better wait for me.)

India: An Introduction
Vision Books/Orient Paperbacks; New Delhi, India; 8170943876; Softcover; New; 
India: An Introduction is a highly readable and rewarding initiation into a complex, ancient civilization, by one of India's most widely-read writers and journalists.Khushwant Singh tells the story of the land and its people from the earliest time to the present day. In broad, vivid sweeps he encapsulates the saga of the upheavals of a sub-continent over five millennia, and how their interplay over the centuries has moulded the India of today. More, Khushwant Singh offers perceptive insights into everything Indian that may catch one's eye or arouse curiosity: its ethnic diversity, religions, customs, philosophy, art and culture, political currents, and the galaxy of men and women who have helped shape its intricately inlaid mosaic. He is also an enlightening guide to much else: India's extensive and varied architectural splendours, its art and classical literature.Khushwant Singh's own fascination with the subject is contagious, showing through on every page, and in every sidelight that he recounts. India: An Introduction holds strong appeal for just about anyone. who has more than a passing interest in the country, Indians as well as those who are drawn to it from farther afield. And for a traveller, it is that rare companion: erudite, intelligent, lively.Printed Pages: 216. 106661

Sahibs Who Loved India
Penguin/Viking; New Delhi, India; 2010; 0143415808; First Edition; Paperback; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
A rare collection of essays that invites the reader to revisit a vanished era of sahibs and memsahibs. From Lord Mountbatten to Peggy Holroyde to Maurice and Taya Zinkin, Britishers who lived and worked in India reminisce about topics and points of interest as varied as the Indian Civil Service and the Roshanara Club, shikar and hazri, the Amateur Cine Society of India and the Doon School, Rudyard Kipling and Mahatma Gandhi. Selected from a series of articles commissioned by Khushwant Singh when he was the editor of the Illustrated Weekly of India these delightfully individualistic and refreshingly candid writings reveal a fascinating array of British attitudes, experiences, observations, fond memories, the occasional short-lived grouses and, above all, a deep and abiding affection and respect for India.

The following quotations from the book speak for t h e author’s rational and pragmatic approach to the whole issue.“Spirit of patriotism must come from within. It is not to be injected. ”“ There may be hundred reasons to hate each other but the balance shall always tilt in favour of innumerable reasons to love each other .” “Religion is also a moral code and moral codes may differ . One should learn to live with a difference. Moral codes and beliefs should not divide the people.

Title of the book ''Maulana Abul Kalam Azad and APJ Abdul Kalam-Exemplary legends for All Times'' is a clear indication of what the book contains. Both these great sons of India shall always be remembered for their respective contributions to our country. Maulana Azad will be remembered for his spiritual intellect and political achievements as also for the sacrifices he made for the country, particularly in an extremely adverse pre-partition situation while APJ Abdul Kalam would be remembered for his technical contribution to the country and as a symbol and practical example of India really being a secular country in which son of a Muslim fisherman can become Head of the state .Let the nation salute both of them for centuries and centuries to come.

Under the visible life
Hachette India/Prakash Books; New Delhi, India; 1781256381; Softcover; New; 
Half Chinese and half Canadian, Katherine Goodnow struggles through a 1950's childhood hostile to all she represents. Then, as a teenager, she discovers jazz, and her life is transformed. Her talent for the piano brings her freedom, adventure and a sense of purpose, helping her survive unexpected motherhood and her incurable love for the unreliable father of her children. Half American and half Afghani, Mahsa Weaver is only twelve when, after the death of her parents, she is sent to live with strict relatives in Karachi. Struggling to break free, she escapes to Montreal, but the threads of her past are not so easily severed and she finds herself forced into an arranged marriage. For Mahsa, too, music becomes her solace and passion, allowing her to dare to dream of a life that is really her own. When these two women meet in New York, they begin a friendship that will change everything. Vividly rendered and sweeping in scope, under the visible life is a stunning meditation on how hope can remain alive in the darkest of times, if we have someone with whom to share our burdens.

"Elämää rahaa käärien ja velkoen": Pohjois-Karjalan maaseudun sekatavarakauppiaat ja heidän velallisensa 1860- ja 1870-Luvulla
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2001; 9517463022; New; 
Sekatavarakaupat ovat harveneva, mutta yhä suomalaiseen maaseutumiljööseen olennaisena osana kuuluva näky. Tämä maalaisromanttinen ilmiö on kuitenkin suomalaisena instituutiona nuori: ensimmäiset kaupat perustettiin vasta 1860 – tätä ennen kaupanpito oli maaseudulla kiellettyä. Kaarniranta luo teoksessaan elävän, monipuolisen kuvan näistä maaseudun sekatavarakaupan todellisista tienraivaajista, ensimmäisistä kauppiaista, jotka yrityksen ja erehdyksen kautta opettelivat kaupanteon saloja. Teos ei keskity kuitenkaan yksinomaan sekatavarakauppaan, vaan kiinnittää huomiota myös kauppiaiden monipuolisiin eri alojen liiketoimiin. Printed Pages: 272. 115777

Suomalainen Kapina: Talonpoikaislevottomuudet ja poliittisen kulttuurin muutos Ruotsin ajalla (n. 1150-1800)
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2002; 9517463065; New; 
Teos kertoo, kuinka tavallinen ihminen nousi esivaltaa vastaan. Aseellinen kapina, erilaiset protestit ja tottelemattomuus olivat talonpoikien tapoja osallistua politiikkaan. Kirjan tapahtumat sijoittuvat aikavälille Lallin verityöstä 1150-luvulla Ruotsin ajan loppuun. Pitkä tarkasteluväli tuo esiin muuttumattomalta näyttävän menneisyyden suuret muutokset. Tapahtumat kuvataan tarkasti, kapinallisille annetaan kasvot. Talonpoikaa vastassa olivat kirkko, kruunu tai aateli, joskus kaikki yhdessä. Mutta myös talonpojat etsivät liittolaisia. Kapinat paljastavat myös sen, kuinka esivalta alamaisiaan hallitsi. Printed Pages: 531. 115897

Reliability of measurement Scales
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2000; 9529128185; New; 
Methods for assessing the reliability of measurement scales were investigated. Reliability, which is defined as the ratio of the true variance to the total variance, is an important property of measurement. In order to estimate the reliability, the concepts of measurement model and measurement scale are required. The model specifies the structure of the measurement, and the scale, which is a combination of the measured items, represents a realization of the theoretical notions. The focus was on two measures of reliability: Cronbach 's alpha, which is widely applied, and Tarkkonen 's more general measure. Printed Pages: 116. 117148

The Dilemma of Popular Sovereignty in the Middle East: Power from or to the People?
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789383649112; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The ongoing political turmoil in the Middle East as a whole would seem to be essentially a contest between the minimalist and maximalist positions on popular sovereignty: should power merely come from, and be exercised in the name of, the people? Or, should those in power be fully accountable to the people? The dilemma warrants a closer look. The present volume comes out of an international conference held in Calcutta, India organised by the Institute of Foreign Policy Studies and the Centre for Pakistan and West Asian Studies, University of Calcutta in March 2013. This volume aims not at a definitive analysis of why what happened did happen; it aims instead at getting a sense of what was actually happening, and what is at issue.Printed Pages: 200. 104264

The Namo Story: A Political Life
Lotus Collection/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8174369384; First Edition; Paperback; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
One of the truly enigmatic personalities on the contemporary Indian political canvas, Narendra Damodardas Modi is difficult to ignore. From his humble beginnings as a RSS pracharak to his rise in the Hindutva ranks, and from being Bharatiya Janata Partys master planner to one of the its most popular and controversial state chief ministers, Modis mantra of change and development is gradually finding many takers. Though he evokes vastly different reactions among the citizens for his alleged role during the Godhra aftermath, what is absolutely clear is that he indeed is racing towards the centre stage, making the 2014 General Elections look more like a Presidential system where, you either vote for him or against him. And that, as they say, is the Modi effect. Kingshuk Nag paints the most vivid portrait of the extraordinary politician who is poised to take on a new role in the coming years.

International Business and Culture
Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 817992758X; Softcover; New; 
International Business And Culture is a book devoted to the effects of culture on international business operations. Many costly errors have been made by international businesses that have not realized the extent to which the needs and behaviors of consumers and employees vary among regions and nations. Change has created many conflicts between the established ways and the introduction of new ideas and different behaviors. As firms further their internationalization efforts more and more employees will find that they are being exposed to greater cultural diversity. This is increasingly the case due to efforts to expand hiring of indigenous persons to staff “foreign” locations. Often new managers from foreign subsidiaries are provided training in the domestic offices exposing not only them, but also those around them, to different ways of thinking. This internationalization of the workplace has placed increased pressures on human resource departments, managers and staff. As such, companies will find it increasingly difficult to respond to differing languages, values and perceptions in a manner that maximizes diverse personal qualities and achieves company goals. As Internet use, international travel and communication speed all increase it is certainly reasonable to assume that the velocity at which cultures collide will increase as well. The seven articles included in this book provide valuable insights into dealing with these issues.Printed Pages: 172. 105602

Journal of Gender and Justice, Volume 1
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 2250-2165; First Edition; Softcover; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
India has been labelled as a land of gender inequality and a challenging place for a woman to live. For centuries, social reformers were fighting for women rights and thus taking the country out of this social stigma and injustice, and they invested a lot on educating and empowering women. But they have met with only partial success. The numerous cases of female infanticides, sex-selective abortions and atrocities on women endorse this fact. We have yet to undergo a sea change in our attitude towards the dignity, education, employment and empowerment of women. The society has to appreciate their strength and treat them as quintessentials in nation-building. There is no society in the world in which women do not experience some gender inequality, be it in political, economic, social, or legal fronts. But in many countries, the gender inequality is really acute. Therefore these important issues -- the invisibility, dstortion and marginalization of gender as a category of analysis in mainstream disciplines and their canonozation -- need serious deliberations. The objectives of Journal of Gender and Justice are both academic and social. It expects to change the present attitude and values in society regarding women's roles and rights to one of equal participation in all social, economic and political processes. It is designed to help in bringing a culture shift in attitudes and values in society regarding women's roles and rights. This "annual" journal from the stable of Banares Hindu University's Centre for Women's Studies and Development, Varanasi, will also target at fulfilling a special responsibility to teachers, who are aware of the need of non-sexiest education, who would pick up the challenge to promote value of equality, including the gender equality.Printed Pages: 183. 100505

The Inheritance of Loss: A Novel
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0670058785; First Edition; Soft Cover; New; New; 16.5 x 25 Cm 
Kiran Desai's first novel, Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard, was published to unanimous acclaim in over twenty-two countries. Now Desai takes us to the northeastern Himalayas where a rising insurgency challenges the old way of life. In a crumbling, isolated house at the foot of Mount Kanchenjunga lives an embittered old judge who wants to retire in peace when his orphaned granddaughter Sai arrives on his doorstep. The judge's chatty cook watches over her, but his thoughts are mostly with his son, Biju, hopscotching from one New York restaurant job to another, trying to stay a step ahead of the INS, forced to consider his country's place in the world. When a Nepalese insurgency in the mountains threatens Sai's new-sprung romance with her handsome Nepali tutor and causes their lives to descend into chaos, they, too, are forced to confront their colliding interests. The nation fights itself. The cook witnesses the hierarchy being overturned and discarded. The judge must revisit his past, his own role in this grasping world of conflicting desires—every moment holding out the possibility for hope or betrayal. A novel of depth and emotion, desai’s second, long-awaited novel fulfils the grand promise established by her first. Printed Pages: 336. 023039

Jinnah Often Came to Our House
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789385152931; Softcover; New; 
India, 1904. The young and dashing Sultan Kowaishi has just returned from London to Bombay after passing his barrister exam. Among the first persons he meets is Mohammed Ali Jinnah, already an advocate of note, and is quickly drawn to him. It is also the time when Jinnah decides to join the Indian National Congress, soon to become its brightest star. The stir against the British rule holds no interest for Sultan but it attracts his wife Rehana, and, inexorably, weaves its way into their lives. In this brilliant saga of love and betrayal, pain and redemption, set amidst the long struggle for freedom and its terrible twin, the call for Pakistan, we confront questions that are as relevant today as they were a hundred years ago. Questions of identity, of purpose, of the shackles of a thousand memories. 109742

Beyond Desire: Sexuality in Modern Tamil Literature
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 8121509769; Hardcover; New; New; 
Moving away from a dominant cultural equation of love, desire, and intimacy with marriage, Beyond Desire offers a radical view that reinstates the body as an enduring symbol of desire. Drawing on the works of seven twentieth-century male Tamil writers beginning with K.P. Rajagopalan, this book explores a spectrum of male–female intimacies wherein desire, liberated from the sexual act, acquires its own creative agency. Through a reading of selected works of writers like T. Janakiraman, Karichan Kunju, Mauni, M.V. Venkatram, Dandapani Jeyakantan, and Tanjai Prakash, this book focuses on the category of the sensual that intertwines the sexual and other modes of relating to the world through spirituality, social reform, and artistic labour. As most of these narratives are articulated through male characters, many of whom are torn between expressing their desire and preserving their religious integrity, the overarching mission remains rooted in discerning the shifts in male perception. The first book in English on modern Tamil literature, it offers alternative readings of sexualities that resist social and sexual definitions, and is a significant contribution to literary scholarship in Tamil.

Village and Village Life in Ancient India: A Study of Village and Village Life in Northern India from 6th Century BC to 1st Century BC
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8173052611; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 19 Cms x 25 Cms 
In this work, an attempt has been made to present in a concise form the various and variegated facets of village and village life in Northern India from c. sixth century BC, a great landmark in Indian history in several fields, to c. first century AD, by linking together pieces of evidence culled from literary and archaeological sources. The first chapter deals with time frame, area of study and sources and their relative merit for historical reconstruction. The next two chapters discuss the form and character of villages and their position vis-a-vis towns and cities. The fourth chapter discusses socio-economic stratification, and the fifth, sixth and seventh chapters, aspects of social, economic and religious life, respectively. Administration and taxation forms the subject of the eighth chapter. Then follow two appendices dealing with ownership of land, and grant of agricultural land and villages, respectively, a bibliography and an index. Forty-five line-drawings and twelve photographs have been added which throw light on various aspects of the life of the village folk. Similarities and diversities between villages and towns have been highlighted, and an attempt has been made to distinguish between ideal and real, common and rare, and change and continuity.

Asoka: The King and the Man
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8173054339; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
The present volume comprising 11 Chapters deals variously with political and economic background and sources; classification and features of edicts; early life and family; conquests and extent of empire; administration; faith in Buddhism; dhamma; religious harmony; society and religions; monuments; and estimate of Asoka. Of five Appendices, the last one deals with the latest discovered Asokan inscription, brought to light by the author. Some points may be highlighted. If Taxila Aramaic inscription was engraved during Asoka's viceroyalty, then Priyadarsi, occurring in it, was not his coronation name. The first five lines of the Panguraria inscription do not refer to Asoka as viceroy on pleasure tour. Identifications and status of Asoka's queens suggested by scholars are rejected, and alternate suggestions offered. The views that Asoka allowed the slaughter of two peacocks and one deer because he was fond of their meat, or because their meat was offered to family deity, have been countered. It is argued with evidence that Chandragupta, and not Bindusara, married a Greek princess. Asoka ruthlessly attacked Kalinga, as in the war of succession, its king had sided with his rival. Asoka has been criticized for granting merely three days for making appeal against death sentence, its review, judgment on the review and conveying the same to the petitioner. The circumstances of the presence of the Separate Rock Edicts at Sannati have been critically examined. Literary and epigraphic evidences show that elephant in Asokan art symbolises Buddha, and so the view that the Dhauli elephant represents Asoka is not correct. Asoka's statement that as a lay Buddhist, after association with samgha, by exerting much he made people extremely pious, clearly shows that the dhamma he propagated was Buddhism, and leaves no scope for debate about it.

In Phone Clones Kiran Mirchandani explores the experiences of the men and women who work in Indian call centers through one hundred interviews with workers in Bangalore Delhi and Pune. As capital crosses national borders colonial histories and racial hierarchies become inextricably intertwined. As a result call center workers in India need to imagine themselves in the eyes of their Western clients – to represent themselves both as foreign workers who do not threaten Western jobs and as being ‘just like’ their customers in the West. In conversation with Western clients Indian customer service agents proclaim their legitimacy an effort Mirchandani calls ‘authenticity work’ which involves establishing familiarity in light of expectations of difference. In their daily interactions with customers managers and trainers Indian call center workers reflect a complex interplay of colonial histories gender practices class relations and national interests.Printed Pages: 188. 101492

Jacopo Bassano Freskomaalarina
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2008; 9525031462; New; 
Jacopo Bassanon kahteen Veneton alueen maaseutukirkkoon maalaamat freskosarjat ajoittuvat hänen myöhäistuotantoonsa ja liitetään tutkimuksessa katolisen kirkon Trenton konsiilin (1545–1563) aikaansaamaan uuteen kirkkopoliittiseen tilanteeseen. Konsiilin päätökset ja päätelmät niiden seurauksista luovat historiallisen kontekstin, joka toimii lähtökohtana tekijän freskojen kuvaohjelmista esittämille rekonstruktioille ja tulkinnoille. Tutkimus kertoo uusien lähteiden ja tulkintojen kautta Veneton maaseudulla 1500-luvulla toimineen taiteilijan suvusta ja perheestä, elämästä ja toiminnasta, tilaajakunnasta ja työhuonejärjestelyistä.

Saaristolaisia: Elämä, arki ja vanhemmuus laivuriperheen Kirjeenvaihdossa
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2017; 9522228877; New; 
Kustavilaisen talonpoikaislaivuri Simon Janssonin ja hänen vaimonsa Wilhelmina Widbomin kirjeet kolmelle pojalleen avaavat harvinaisen näkymän 1800-luvun saaristolaisten elämään ja arkeen, lapsiaan kouluttavien vanhempien tulevaisuudentoiveisiin sekä sosiaalisen nousun mahdollisuuksiin. Arkisista asioista - rahahuolista, ruokalähetyksistä ja saaristoyhteisön uutisista - kertovien kirjeiden tarkka analyysi tuo uutta tietoa talonpoikaispurjehduksella vaurastuneen saariston elämäntavasta ja ajatusmaailmasta sekä valottaa ensimmäisen polven sivistyneistön rakentumista 1800-luvun puolivälissä. Teos kuvaa yhden perheen maailmaa ajalta, jolloin harva säätyläistön ulkopuolella osasi kirjoittaa. Se tuo lukijan lähelle menneisyyden ihmisten oman äänen ja haastaa sivistyneistön luomaa kuvaa 1800-luvusta. Saaristolaisia avaa yhden perheen elämänpiiriä yksityiskohtaisesti ja tarkasti, mutta arjen kuvauksen rinnalla kulkee vahva teoreettinen rakenne, joka nojaa ranskalaiseen ja hollantilaiseen egodokumenttien tutkimukseen. Se etsii vastausta kysymykseen, kuinka yksityistä, perhepiiriin keskittyvää kirjekerrontaa voi hedelmällisellä tavalla käyttää historiantutkimuksen lähteenä. Teos hyödyttää ennen kaikkea kirjeenvaihdon ja muiden omaelämäkerrallisten tekstien sekä itseoppineiden kirjoittajien tutkijoita. Se sopii myös saariston ja merenkulun historiasta sekä elämäkerroista kiinnostuneille. Printed Pages: 232. 115322
