The Concept of Time in Vedic Ritual
New Bharatiya Book Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2001; 818315106X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Time is an important factor in the performance of vedic ritual. It is very much essential that every detail in the ritual be performed at its proper time. Vedic texts abound in numerous speculations about the mystic connection of time and ritual. A detailed study of such speculations was a long felt desideratum. The present thesis is an attempt in this direction. Aspects such as duration, order, frequency, auspicious and inauspicious time, symbolic time, time in respect to microcosm and macrocosm, etc. have been dealt with in this book.Printed Pages: 322. 104106

Nuclear Energy in India's Energy Security Matrix: An Appraisal
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789382652359; Hardcover; New; New; 
Energy is essential for the economic growth of a nation. Its absence or deficiency makes a nation highly vulnerable to international arms twisting as well as internal disturbances. As such, it is an important element in a nation's security matrix. India which is in the lower half of the countries as far as the energy consumption per capita is concerned. One of major reasons is the gap between the demand and the capacity of the country to supply the energy from indigenous sources. One of the important sources that hold promise in Indian context is the nuclear energy as it is clean and the resource; thorium to produce power through this route is available indigenously. However despite a well developed plan for energy conversion in place, using indigenous resources for over half a century, it is still considered only promising. Relevant questions in this regard are; whether perceived promise is realizable? If so, in what time frame and at what cost? Will it be safe keeping in view its capacity to cause wide spread devastation? Is there a need to seek technical collaboration with other countries or will it be better to go indigenous route only? How do we tackle the widening demand- supply gap during the interim? And finally is there a case for a review for the existing decision loop/energy management system? An attempt has been made in this book to address these issues. It is also expected that the concept advocated in this book for achieving energy security for India by 2030 will initiate a wider debate on the subject.Printed Pages: 334. 103232

Water: A Source for Future Conflicts
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789382652069; Hardcover; New; New; 
Water, air and sun light are the three most important resources for the sustenance of life on the planet earth. While human race has hardly any control on air and sun light, water from time immemorial has always been used by various kingdoms/ states/ groups of people as an important aspect of their respective security policy to exercise their influence over their adversaries through a control/ denial of common water resources. Such a conflict of interest has often led the concerned stake holders, to go for dispute resolution through an armed skirmish/ battle. It needs to be appreciated that the shortage of water affects food security and the energy security of a country. With depleting resources and increasing demands; the situation is gradually becoming extremely critical and a number of flash points for future conflicts are emerging.Printed Pages: 288. 103245

Role of Pakistan in India's Energy Security
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789382652182; Softcover; New; 
India's energy security concerns. It sheds light on India's energy insecurity and explores its various dimensions, its nature and extent. It examines the role that trade, foreign and security policy should play in enhancing India's energy security. It is argued that the key challenge for India is to increase economic growth while at the same time keeping energy demands low. This is especially challenging with the transition from biomass to fossil fuels, the growth of the motorized private transport and rising incomes, aspirations and changing lifestyles. The book suggests that at this time there are strong arguments to lessen India's fossil fuel dependence and it argues for a need to engage with all the key sources of this dependence to implement a process of energy change.Prinred Pages: 96. 103265

Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380177625; Hardcover; New; New; 
The current paradigm of violence in South Asia is based on militancy and strategic terrorism drawing from extremist ideologies, be it religion, ethnicity or sub nationalism across the region.

Discovering Life: A Poet Within
Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789380828466; Hardcover; New; New; 
Discovering Life, a Poet Within is a beautiful flow of thoughts, observations and reflections about mystery of life by a former senior army officer. His urge to unravel this mystery, so close to our hearts, yet so distant, deepened when he ventured to share his thoughts in his first book, Seasons of Life, Extraordinary Life of an Ordinary Soldier.Spurred by wide acceptance and readability of his first book, his quest continued with a renewed vigour and has now found an expression in this book. But this time in a totally new language, the preserve of the literary wizards, the forbidden domain, the artistic domain of poetry. This book is a collection of 100 poems, all on different topics, all about various facets of life, all with a subtle message and all in the first person. The author feels that, this was not done with a design, but has emerged to be so. Perhaps, instinctively.The book traces the intricate web of emotions and various facets of life like, the sublime feeling of love, misery and pain in life, the dilemma of conflicting thoughts, the nature and its cosmic manifestations, stretch of his poetic imagination to crystal gaze into this world and the world beyond, and finally the memories, what these hold for us in store. Each of these themes has been expressed beautifully in many of his poems. The Author feels that there is a poet residing within each one of us, waiting for an opportune moment or a trigger to surface.Overall, the frank and free flow of thoughts coming straight from the heart and expressed beautifully strikes a chord. There is so much to pick up from this book. Printed Pages: 240. 107246

Trade Commerce and Security in the Asia Pacific Region
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789382652083; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Asia Pacific region is a dynamic but complex area where much of the history of the 21st Century will be scripted. Although the strategic and economic importance of the region continues to grow, challenges of reconciling national interests with regional and global interests continue. Security architectures during the Cold War were based primarily on military alliances. However the need today is to base these architectures on shared values, interests and challenges. We need not only define but believe in these universal values. This book brings out this important aspect of this region and explains them briefly.Printed Pages: 186. 103237

Peace and Stability in Afghanistan: The Way Ahead
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 9789380177205; Hardcover; New; New; 
Even after almost eight years of international community's efforts in Afghanistan the instability and turbulence in Afghanistan has increased rather than abated. Not only has Afghanistan seen ever increasing levels of violence and loss of life the virus of instability and culture of violence has also spread across the Durand line with hardly any silver line on the horizon. A deadly insurgency, higher opium production, increasing civilian casualties, rampant corruption, an unstable neighborhood and an uncertain political future remain the defining features of the complex and combustible situation that obtains in Afghanistan.This book based on the seminar on peace and stability in Afghanistan and the way ahead is built around four themes of security, governance, development and examination of likely future scenarios and offering recommendations for policy and strategy choices which can be made now so as to move towards a better and brighter future for Afghanistan and in effect for rest of the international community.Printed Pages: 240. 103252

Param Vir: Our Heroes in Battle

This is the story of men under fire, of the courageous Indian soldier inspired by his officers. While war is an extension of the politics of a nation, it ultimately fall to the lot of the soldier to face combat on the ground. Schooled in the culture of "Service before Self", soldiers of the Indian Army take their challenges head-on, turning adversity into opportunity, overcoming impossible situations with a smile. While some of their deeds of valour are rewarded, many more need to be remembered. What makes these men the way they are? This book helps us understand better the Indian soldier and his degree of commitment to the Indian Army, and to the nation that he serves. -Thirty years after the 1971 Indo-Pak war: Pak Brigadier confesses to Arun Khetarpal's father. The Brigadier had shot his son. I have something to tell you and it concerns your son. Arun Khetarpal is a national hero... the youngest recipient of Param Vir Chakra and you and I have become very close friends. But on that fateful day, at the battle of Bade Pind, we were soldiers unknown to each other, fighting for the safety and honour of our respective countries. I regret to have to tell you that your son died at my hands. Arun's courage on the battlefield was exemplary and he moved his tank with fearless courage and daring, totally unconcerned about his own safety. Tank casualties on both sides were very heavy, till finally it was just the two of us who faced each other. We both fired simultaneously... it was destined that I was to live and he had to die.

Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789385285264; Hardcover; New; New; 
This is the inspiring true story of one of India's most iconic mountaineers - Major HPS Ahluwalia, who was the member of India's first successful expedition to Everest. But the story does not end with this spectacular achievement. In fact this is where the real story begins - for the struggle to climb Everest was but a preparation for an even bigger challenge that lay ahead.Just four months after his success, Major Ahluwalia suffered a grievous spinal injury in the Indo-Pak war of 1965. In a man of lesser courage, this could have destroyed his spirit but in Major Ahluwalia's case, it ignited a deep passion.This is the story of how he fought 'the impossible fight' towards rehabilitation and how he achieved the 'seemingly unattainable dream' of building India's first world class Spinal Injuries Centre.This is ultimately the story of how Major Ahluwalia conquered a Summit even higher than the Everest, the Summit of the Mind.

17635 Makarand Paranjape (ed.)
The Penguin Swami Vivekananda Reader
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0143032542; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
On 11 September 1893, Swami Vivekananda (1863–1902) made his first public appearance on the world stage as a last-minute, uninvited participant at the Parliament of Religions in Chicago. There he proclaimed his message of tolerance and universal acceptance in the ‘name of millions and millions of Hindu people of all classes and sects’. Speaking against sectarianism and bigotry, this young speaker in flaming robes sounded the death-knell of all fanaticism. In his brief life of less than forty years, Swami Vivekananda wrote four outstanding treatises on Hindu philosophy: Jnana Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Karma Yoga and Raja Yoga. He also taught, lectured and travelled tirelessly. After his death, his message spread all over India and in many parts of the world through the various activities, efforts and services of the Ramakrishna Mission and Math, the monastic order that he had founded in the name of his guru. The Penguin Swami Vivekananda Reader is the first major compilation of Vivekananda’s selected works aimed at a general audience. It includes speeches, essays, letters, poems, conversations and excerpts from his books on subjects that have contemporary relevance: celebration of the Indian spirit, karma, spirituality, reincarnation, realization of the Absolute. Swami Vivekananda’s writings do not merely inspire, but propel action. With a detailed biography and a scholarly introduction, the Reader provides a rare insight into one of India’s greatest minds.

The Ramayana of Valmiki: translated into English
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8121500931; Tenth Reprint; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Makhan Lal Sen's The Ramayana of Valmiki is a modernized version in English prose of the great Sanskrit epic Ramayana. The appeal and freshness of epic poems transcend all limitations imposed by time, space, age, caste, creed, society and language. All, irrespective of their age, succumb to the charms and fascinating personalities of its heroes, who have inspired countless men of different generations and spurred them on to perform almost superhuman task. Modern civilization owes most of dazzling achievements to such inspiration. Valmiki's Ramayana is something more than an epic. No one has built shrines in honour of Horner's heroes, to worship them as God. In contrast, from the time of its composition to this day, Valmiki's hero never lacked devotees. The reason for this strange phenomenon lies in this: in the Greek epics the cause is ambition, and the effect is the valour of its heroes; in Ramayana the cause is the moral welfare of society and the effect is the ideal conduct of its heroes under the most trying circumstances that destiny can weave. Rama is a personification of all that is expected of an ideal son, ideal brother, ideal husband, ideal prince, ideal ally, ideal commander and an ideal king. Translation of epics and rendering them in prose, is, at the best of times, an hazardous and arduous job. Here the translator has done his best to capture to a remarkable degree the grandeur of the epic, the loftiness of its thought, the simplicity and elegance of its enduring beauty. This book, being one of those rare ones which elevates one's soul, should find a place under every roof. Printed Pages: 624. 017710

The Famine of 1896-1897 in Bengal: Availability or Entitlement Crisis?
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8125023895; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
This book is a focussed treatment of a famine both as an 'event' and a 'process'. It is a close-up of a peasant economy in the throes of a crisis which temporarily eroded the value-system determining the normal pattern of entitlements. An investigation of the socio-economic, ecological and cultural determinants of the famine helps evolve a coherent framework. The emphasis is on the distinctive problems of the various economic regions, most notably the tribal belts. Chakrabarti applies Amartya Sen's theory of exchange entitlements to a nineteenth century famine situation in Bengal, and finds that a market-based entitlement failure precipitating severe famine conditions, "even without receiving any impulse from food production", has little relevance here. Though teh book underlines the predicament of the subalterns, the famine is not seen from the viewpoint of any specific group or community. The focus is, rather, on the phenomenon of famine in its totality---on the agony and trauma of a peasant society thrown out of gear in an abnormal situation, and the crisis of identities that ensued.

When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education.

At sixteen, she has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest ever nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize. I Am Malala is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism of the fight for girls education and of Malala's parents fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons.

Learning from Children What to Teach Them
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0761936114; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This enriching book explores quality education at the grassroots level for disadvantaged children. It evolves and evaluates strategies for the promotion of the overall development of children in the motor, cognitive, language, emotional, social and moral domains. The methods used revolve around children, with a larger purpose of shaping young minds as opposed to solely enhancing academic skills. The essence of the book lies in what adults can learn from children while teaching them. Though the book stems from case studies of schools in rural Karnataka, it has implications for effectively providing quality education to children across the nation. It quantitatively evaluates the process of intervention that consists of 20-25 hours of group work with the school children and qualitatively describes the outcome in terms of promotion of psycho-social development.

Memories of Belonging: Images from the Colony and Beyond
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 9789383098590; Hardcover; New; New; 
Memories of Belonging can be read as a collection of slightly offbeat musings on certain aspects of over a century and a half of this country’s history. Whether the photograph, lithograph, painting or cartoon is the focus or illustrates a point or an argument, the visual is integral to each piece. A rough historical sense divides the volume into three sections: the first sets the stage for the appearance of the colonial state – not through the usual tropes of political and economic domination but more with vignettes about institutions, people and unusual choices. The second section is a whimsical journey through India while the final section is all about modes of travel used by a century and a half of people on the move, beginning with the palki and ending with experiences of the railways. Through its easy style, well-chosen visuals and details peppered with anecdotes, the reader will quickly journey through colonial India into its more recent past, garnering interesting and often little-known facts and snippets along the way.Printed Pages: 228 with 90 colour photographs. 106577

This professionally designed, well-produced volume provides a more holistic understanding of what is learnt through the written word, memory, and recall. This book will be of great interest to general readers, students and scholars of gender studies, history, sociology, culture and media studies photographers, photo-journalists, archivists, and art historians.

The Trial of the Templars
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2006; 0521856396; Second Edition; Hardcover; Brand New; Brand New; 228 x 152 Mm 
The Templars fought against Islam in the crusader east for nearly two centuries. During that time the original small band grew into a formidable army, backed by an extensive network of preceptories in the Latin West. In October 1307, the members of this seemingly invulnerable and respected Order were arrested on the orders of Philip IV, King of France and charged with serious heresies, including the denial of Christ, homosexuality and idol worship. The ensuing proceedings lasted for almost five years and culminated in the suppression of the Order. The motivations of the participants and the long-term repercussions of the trial have been the subject of intense and unresolved controversy, which still has resonances in our own time. In this new edition of his classic account, Malcolm Barber discusses the trial in the context of new work on the crusades, heresy, the papacy and the French monarchy. • The story of the Templars is one of the most dramatic, the best known but the most mythologised stories of the Middle Ages • This is the most in-depth and authoritative treatment of their trial ever written • In this definitive new edition the trial is discussed in the context of new work on the crusades, heresy, the papacy and the French monarchy Contents Preface; Introduction; 1. The participants; 2. The arrests; 3. The papal intervention; 4. The papal and episcopal inquiries; 5. The defence of the Order; 6. The end of resistance; 7. The charges; 8. The trial in other countries; 9. The suppression; 10. Conclusion; Notes; Chronology of the trial; Recent historiography on the dissolution of the Temple; Bibliography; Index.

The Trial of Templars (The New Cambridge History of India)
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 1993; 0521457270; Paperback; New; 
On 18 March 1314, Jacques de Molay, Grand Master of the Templars, was burned at the stake. For almost two centuries, the knights of the Order of the Temple had flourished during the Crusades in Palestine and Syria, and in the West, notably in France. But in 1307, the Templars in France were arrested by King Philip IV’s officials in the name of the Inquisition, their property seized and the men charged with serious heresies, including the denial of Christ, homosexuality and idol worship. Confessions, extracted under torture, were brought before royal and papal tribunals, but in 1310 a number of Templar brothers mounted a defence of their Order, refuelling the controversies which continued for a further four years before the final executions. Malcolm Barber’s fascinating account, assessing the charges brought against the Order, once again puts the Templars on trial. Contents Preface; Introduction; 1. The participants; 2. The arrests; 3. The papal intervention; 4. The papal and episcopal inquiries; 5. The defence of the Order; 6. The end of resistance; 7. The charges; 8. The trial in other countries; 9. The suppression; 10.

Accordingly, this book delves upon how clues from Ashtadhyayi help in identifying compound types; how Ashtadhyayi’s digital edition can be structured and implemented; the completeness analysis of a Sanskrit reader; graph-based analysis of parallel passages; some relation-specific issues in parsing Sanskrit texts, text normalizer for Sanskrit; extended Nyaya-Vaisheshika ontology; and a search engine for Sanskrit, among others. The invited papers focus on lexicography, with special reference to Encyclopaedic Dictionary of Sanskrit on Historical Principles; some aspects of semantics in early India in understanding the meaning of words; and the computational database of Panini’s grammar. This collection, thus, is an important initiative in the filed of Sanskrit computational linguistics as it records insightful current trends in the field, making it a “must buy” for students, researchers, and all those interested in Sanskrit grammar.Printed Pages: 334. 100488

17685 Malini Adiga
The Making of Southern Karnataka: Society, Polity and Culture in the Early Medieval Period, AD 400-1030
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8125029125; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
Southern Karnataka emerged as a regional entity between the fourth and eleventh centuries AD. Although interest in the nature of early medieval states and their social formations has defined much historical research since the 1970s, studies have, until now, been limited to clarifying only the political-dynastic history of the region. In this path-breaking new study, Malini Adiga reveals the political, social and cultural features that characterised the region. Its distinct identity is explored by examining the processes that created this political and cultural entity: the various social strata, the nature of the socio-political structure, the developments in the field of religion, and the manner in which the early medieval state patronised and utilised the various religious cults and sects to legitimise itself. Based on an extensive analysis of the inscriptions from the region and period under study, this book also drwas on the region's literary sources to explain its characteristic social ethos. Exhaustively researched, carefully analysed and richly descriptive, this book is essential reading for all those interested in early medieval Karnataka. Printed Pages: 464. 031542

Development of Buddhist Iconography in Eastern India: A study of Tara, Prajnas of five Tathagatas and Bhrikuti
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1980; 812150208X; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 23 Cms x 29 Cms 
This book deals with the unwritten rules of Nepalese religious art as laid down in 'model books'; manuals for the artists, in which they can find the correct way to represent, in visual art, any of some 2000 godly figures. The author has traced the development in time of some 150 popular Hindu deities in order to see if the representation of these gods is in any way related to changes in society. The author has studied the sketches in numerous model books and compared them with written iconographic descriptions in ancient texts as well as with executed art such as paintings, woodcarvings and miniatures. The main area of her study was the town of Bhaktapur. Printed Pages: 218 with 54 b/w illustrations. 026367

Tibetan Refugees in India: Education, Culture and Growing Up in Exile
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125054979; Hardcover; New; New; 
Tibetan Refugees in India focuses on the issue of education for the Tibetan community as an important ingredient conceived to not only protect and preserve tradition but also engage with modernity by the Tibetan Government in Exile. The volume recognises the dilemmas that the community grapples with in trying to achieve a balance between ‘tradition’ and ‘modernity’ in education and the strategies it has employed to deal with the issue. Life in exile is seen as a continuous learning experience for the community with trying to be ‘exclusive’ yet also to prevent ‘exclusion’ in a modernised world.The Introduction sets the tone with the idea of and about refugeeism as a complex and problematic global reality. The chapters examine the educational options available to the Tibetan youth—Tibetan schools and Indian schools respectively. It details the curriculum and pedagogy in both sets of schools and the impact it has on the Tibetan youth, their sense of identity, nationhood, Tibet in their imagination and their attitude towards the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan struggle.Printed Pages: 328. 101759

100 questions from my child
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174366865; Hardcover; New; New; 
In this touching book, Mallika Chopra explores 100 questions children ask - sometimes whimsical, often mystical - and shares insights on how you can craft your answers in a way that will foster a child's imagination, creativity and sense of self. Chopra writes: 'As a mom, I realized early on that my children were looking to me for answers. Even before they could speak, they were asking questions - questions about how to interact with the world. And it was my reaction to these questions that began to shape their worldview, their sense of security and trust. Chopra teaches us that each question a child asks presents a chance to change the future. With warmth and wisdom, she shares her own quest to answer her children's questions with lessons that last a lifetime.'In our rush-rush world, it's sometimes hard to slow down and match the pace and the natural, wide-eyed wonder of our kids. Chopra shows the harried parent how much power rests in those small moments, and how parents can turn each one into an opportunity to teach empathy, understanding, and spiritual growth.'

Battleground India Prognosis of Hindu-Muslim Exclusivism
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380828497; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Battleground India: Prognosis of Hindu-Muslim Exclusivism is an interpretive study of the historical spectrum of India from 10 ' ' ' Century to the present period. This period witnessed rise and collapse of Muslim politico-military powers in India and gradual sprouting of Hindu nationalism and later germination of Muslim nationalism. Hindu aspirations to assert nationalism, cultural and religious identity, and achieve self-rule; and Muslim endeavour to assert separate identity as a distinct linguistic, cultural and religious and political entity; have been projected. Initial Hindu reaction to treat the British as deliverer and Muslim attitude of aversion led to disproportionate growth of Hindu and Muslim fortunes. The book interprets how the Ashraf Muslims and British connived to thwart the Hindu nationalists and perpetuated the Two Nation concept on the basis of religion, which finally fruited in dividing the people irreconcilably. The evolution of Muslim separatism since 1857 has been scientifically studied and discussed. Growth of Hindu majoritrainism and assertion of identity has also been chronicled. The aspect of 'living together separately ' psychology persisted even after Independence. The Indian Muslims continued to carry the burden of minority identity crisis. The ambience of exclusivism continued unabated. Alleged minorityism practised by the state and Muslim clamour for better share has generated sharp Hindu reaction. Battleground India has examined all these aspects both at macro and micro levels. The first unbiased projection of the deteriorating grassroots conflict situation prognosticates bad news for national unity and integrity.Printed Pages: 504. 104547
