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

Lord Lyttons' Indian Administration 1876-80: The Untold History
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1988; 8121201373; Hardcover; New; New; 
The rule of Lord Lytton as the Viceroy and Governor-General of India was crucial on in Indian history. The British imperialism consolidated its hold during the crucial years of 1876-80.

Till Lady Betty Balfour salvaged the letters, official papers, minutes, dispatches and memoirs and exposed the era for historical scrutiny. One gets and authentic and documented record of the period with the Political cross-currents, social life, economy, and the polity of the time. It is therefore a unique, untold story which tells eve5rything about the British Policies and policy-makers of the day and the impact they had on the years to come. In all, a slice of the History of the Raj truthfully documented for reference and reading pleasure.Printed Pages: 560. 105695

17744 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

17757 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

Dr. Lakshmi Narain Lal (born 1925) is a noted literator in the realm of creative literature in Hindi. Basically a playwright, he has a prolific pen which revels in turning out literary output of deep aesthetic value. His present work Mr. Abhimanyu is a resourceful recreation of a mythical character caught in a dreadful whirlpool of contemporary society. The fruitless attempt to escape is postulated in an inimitable way. Starkly realistic it bristles with sharp punches on the hallowness of contemporary society and its sham piety.Printed Pages: 62. 102601

The French East India Company and the Trade of the Indian Ocean: A Collection of Essays By Indrani Ray
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1999; 8121508657; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The present edition of the writings of the late Indrani Ray has been planned around certain identifiable factors that determined India's changing tryst with the Indian Ocean in the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. While the protagonist in these writings is the Indian merchant, the biographer is the French East India Company's Official. Using a wide array of French sources, the author reconstructed the changing world of the Indian merchant as he rubbed shoulders with the European trading companies in the palmy decades of the seventeenth century and retreated into his shell in the turbulent decades of the eighteenth. Taken together, these essays underscore both the prosperity and vitality of Indian trade in the seventeenth century as well as its inherent fragility in the face of political uncertainty and unrestrained competition in the succeeding years. The conclusions arrived at, tend to reinforce some of the better known propositions about the nature and orientation of pre-modern Indian trade and the making of its material context. Individually, the essays constitute important interventions in ongoing debates about the extent and logic of Mughal decline, the benevolence of the Mughal state towards matters maritime and about the relative importance of European trade vis-à-vis Asian trade in the economy of eighteenth century Bengal. The Introduction attempts to identify these interventions and knit the essays around the current debates on the eighteenth century crisis in Indian history. The introduction, will help to situate the relevance of the French connection in the complex trading grid of the Indian Ocean. The fact that the French were the most serious rivals of the English for empire and very nearly succeeded in the imperial game is often obscured in the flush of English victories. In terms of the historiography on maritime India, this has meant a subtle neglect of French language sources in the reconstruction of the trading world of the Indian merchant and seafarer. That this omission is entirely unwarranted is amply borne out by Indrani Ray's analysis of French archival sources and documents like the Roques' manuscript, which in terms of both range and detail is of enduring value.

Kunjamma...Ode to a Nightingale-M.S. Subbulakshmi
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2003; 81-7436-273-0; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 20 Cms x 23 Cms 
In Kunjamma—Ode to a Nightingale, Lakshmi Vishwanathan explains why she believes knowing M.S. Subbulakshmi has been the greatest blessing of her life. The author, whom M.S. has referred to as a ‘daughter’, retraces the life of a legend—its divine and human angularities—with love, sympathy and insight. As a child, ‘Kunjamma’—Madurai Shanmukhavadivu Subbulakshmi—learnt to play the veena from her mother and sang in the temples of Madurai. This biography traces her journey from there to Madras, the cultural hub of South India, and the impregnable male bastion of classical music, where M.S., as she came to be popularly known, would reign as the Queen of Music for decades. Equally memorable is her foray into films. Cast as Meera, Krishna’s self-willed mortal consort, M.S. became the incarnation of the people’s vision of this saint-poet—an identity she would willingly embrace at the behest of her husband. Kunjamma—Ode to a Nightingale deals with every aspect of M.S.’s glorious career—be it her mastery of the classical tradition or her unforgettable screen performances. Most importantly, it speaks of her immortal bhajans, sung in virtually every Indian language with singular devotion. That is why M.S. has won a place for herself in the hearts of the people—the final destination that fate had ordained for her. Printed Pages: 127. 000328

Taking Social Development Seriously: The Experience of Sri Lanka
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2010; 813210465X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book presents a historical and analytical overview of social development in Sri Lanka within a social policy conceptual framework. The author identifies three distinct phases of development of social policy in the country—that of the early, late and post colonial state. Further, he shows how Sri Lankan social development has since been reframed by a combination of neo-liberalism and a protracted civil war. This shift from the country’s unique social welfare structure to one marked by warfare is examined in the context of the impact of a new `welfare regime` on its society. Printed Pages: 248. 033360

Discerning the Buddha: A Study of Buddhism and of the Brahmanical Hindu Attitude to it
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8121501385; Reprint; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
What is the Brahmanical Hindu understanding or misunderstanding of the Buddha and Buddhism? Modern enlightened 'Hindus' wedded to the Vaidika/Sanatana Dharma tradition hold that the Buddha was a 'Hindu' reformer, Buddhism a 'Hindu sect'; that original Buddhist teaching was Vedantic or 'Hinduistic', and that the Buddhists have misunderstood the fulfillment of 'the Hindu religion' and distorted the original teachings of the Great Master! On the other hand, stalwarts like Swami Vivekananda and Sir Radhakrishnan Also say that the Buddha is one of the makers of 'Hinduism'. The former even said that the Buddha was the greatest 'Hindu Seer, Philosopher, Vedantin, Karmayogin, and the only God who walked on the earth. Satkari Mookerjee has declared that 'every Hindu is a Buddhist'. The ancient and medieval scriptures of Brahmanical Hindus, however, regarded the Buddha as a 'barbarian', an 'outcast', a 'nihilist', and a 'non-aryan' teacher of the religion of the evil age (kaliyuga). The Puranas inform us that the Son of Suddhodhana, born among the non-aryan tribe of 'Kikatas', was no other than the Supreme Lord Visnu who had assumed a false avatara for the sole purpose of misleading demons! This incarnation of God had criticised the Vedas, opposed the sacred Vedic ceremonies, and questioned the supremacy of the brahmanas. He was pure, compassionate and dispassionate; He practised renunciation and meditation, and was very wise; many people worshipped Him in this kaliyuga. But He was an 'atheist', opposed to the holy Veda; He taught equality of brahmanas and untouchables, men and women, and black and white castes and races. Those who followed His religion proceeded to hells! Such are the conflicting attitudes towards the Buddha and Buddhism in the land of the Dharma famous for religious tolerance and synthesis. The present volume attempts an analysis and a systematic study of the traditional Brahmanical now called 'Hindu' attitude to Buddhism in India. The bulk of the volume, however, is devoted to an exposition of the fundamental doctrines of Buddhism in the Indian context. The author follows a combined methodology, although he reviews several current approaches to the study of the history and doctrines of Buddhism. Historical interactions and mutual favours between Brahmanic and Sramanic traditions, the role of Buddhism in the transformation of early Brahmanism into new Brahmanism and the evolution of 'Hinduism', the differences between Buddhism and Brahmanism/Hinduism, the differences between the ancient and medieval representatives and modern representatives of the Brahmanical tradition to Buddhism, Buddhist responses to this modern 'Hindu' attitude, and a review of Buddhist contributions to Indianism, are some of the subjects discussed in this book. One of the most important parts of this book deals with what the author has called 'God's Alternative in Buddhism'. An outline of Buddhology as a systematic study of the idea of Buddhahood, is one of the new themes discussed here. Another often neglected subject is a brief account of the possible Buddhist influences in the Judeo-Christian religious tradition. The volume is offered as a basis for further study and scholarly dialogue in the area of intercultural and historical hermeneutics in the study of religion in South Asia. Printed Pages: 298. 024799

The Adhyatma Ramayana
Sri Satguru Publications; Delhi, India; 2008; 8170308763; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
"In former times filled with affection towards her devotees the Goddess Parvati reverently questioned Shiva desirous of knowing the nature of Rama. The Lord of the Mountains himself recited to his dear consort that great mystery known as the Adhyatma Ramayana which is great amongst the Puranas. He who reads with devotion even a shloka or half a shloka of the Adhyatma Ramayana, is purified of all sins that very moment. He who daily recites reverently the Adhyatma Ramayana with a mind directed to no other object, is daid to be Jivan Mukta (Emancipated in this very life). One who casually listens to the Adhyatma Ramayana from another without showing reverence, even he is freed from sin. He who bows to the Adhyatma Ramayana, having approached it, obtains the fruit of worshipping all the Gods. This greatness of the Adhyatma side of Rama's deeds was told to the Sage Narada by the Lotus-seated Brahma. He who reads or listens to it with faith attains to the Abode of Vishnu and is worshipped by the Gods."Printed Pages: 454. 101165

Buddhist Tantra: A Philosophical Reflection and Religious Investigation
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8180696472; Hardcover; New; New; 
Lord Buddha, after the attainment of Nirvana under Bodhi Tree at Bodh Gaya through the practice of Tantra Sadhana reflected on the nature and significance of Nirvana which resulted into the birth of a new school of philosophy and a new religious order known as Buddhism. Buddhist Tantra is the sublime and profound form of spirituality. It is monotheistic. It presents the highest form of Monism. In Buddhist Tantra, Advaya means the eternal co-existence of Prajna and Upaya which constitute the infinite unity and transcendent reality (Boddhi Citta). Buddhist Tantra has made great contribution to the speculative metaphysics in the form of Vijnana Vada, (Yogacara) and Sunyavada (Madhyamika). The most profound ontological doctrine is considered to be the Madhyamika which claims Sunyata to be intrinsic nature, to be the ultimate mode of existence of phenomenon. One can experience Sunyata only when the mind is liberated from all kinds of mental reification. Buddhist Tantra is aware of futality of speculative metaphysics and hence it recommends the practice of intuitional science and esotericism for the realisation of ultimate reality. In this intuitive experience of Prajna and Upaya, essence and existence becomes identical. Tantra is not based on false asceticism. The significance of mystic symbolism of Tantra cannot be understood without one initiation (abhisekha) in its intuitional science and esotericism. It is full of symbolism. The symbolism of sex and wine under some esoteric discipline is supposed to sublimate the baser instincts. Tantra recognises that sex is inherent in man but it can be sublimated. In the recognition of the gradual development and transformation of human consciousness Tantra takes cognizance of baser and crude aspect of human nature and introduces spiritual and esoteric techniques and practices to sublimate them into higher forms of divine life. The significance of Five M i.e. Mansa (Meat), Matsya (Fish), Mudra (Parched Rice). Madya (Wine) and Maithuna (Copulation), is esoteric. It cannot be grasped in its manifest form. Maithuna (Copulation) refers to the union of Prajna and Upaya in Usanisa Kamala. The esoteric significance of the Madira (Wine) is the pineal nectar that imanates from the Usanisa Kamala.

Science, Spirituality and Ontological Mysticism: The Philosophical Enquiry and Reflection
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789351252214; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is the outcome of two decades of author’s reflection over this subject. Ontological mysticism is the basis for the philosophical and the scientific truth and reality. Twenty first century is ushering in an era of spiritual renaissance. There is a convergence of science and spirituality. The relativity and quantum mechanics are coming closer to Vedantic and Buddhistic concept of truth and reality. The book analyses and examines different philosophical and scientific concepts both from the transcendental and the relativistic perspective. It has also introduced a new concept in the form of cosmic consciousness as the ultimate reality and the scientific and philosophical importance of subject or perceiver. Subject or perceiver may be accepted as the fifth dimension. The cosmic consciousness is the only reality that exists. This book is full of paradoxes and contradictions, it is full of allegories and metaphors: they are not truths but pointer to deeper and profound truth. Sometimes myths and metaphors, fables and allegories speak out greater truth than truth itself as truth is mystical and metaphysical. Printed Pages: 396. 112131

Tantra: Its Mystic and Scientific Basis
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8180696405; Hardcover; New; New; 
In quest of identity and destiny man discovered philosophy and religion. In search of realization of philosophical truth and religious summum bunum of life Lord Siva expounded scientific and mystic tradition known as Tantra. Tantra forms the esoteric basis of all religion and provides sound philosophical foundation of spirituality. This book presents an indepth analysis and reflection of the root concepts of Tantra such as Kundalini, Mantra and Yantra. Tantra provides an esoteric and physiological significance of Pancamakara Sadhana. Tantra believes that poison that kills a man when scientifically cultured by physician it becomes the elixir of life. Sex when sublimated, it opens the door for salvation. Tantra is a happy and harmonious blending of enjoyment (Bhoga) and salvation (Yoga). It is neither a dogma nor lifeless rituals. It is an intuitional science. The Canonical literature of Tantra is written in Twilight language (Sandhya Bhasa). Its apparent meaning is quite different from the real meaning. Only those who get initiated by a proper Guru in Tantra Sadhana understand the mystic significance of different symbols and esoteric practices. This book provides a deeper insight into the scientific and mystic significance of Kundalini, Mantra and Yantra which are the main constituents of Tantra. This book presents a scholarly analysis and evaluation of Tantra and explains both its mystic and scientific basis. Printed Pages: 236. 112141

Judgment According to the Deeds: An Appraisal of Article X of the Presbyterian Church of India's Confession of Faith 
Christian World Imprints/B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789351480808; Hardcover; New; New; 
"The Presbyterian Church of India's Confession of Faith Article X deals with the doctrine of the Last Day. Its main theme is the resurrection of the dead and the subsequent ""final judgment"" where the living and the dead ""shall be judged according to the deeds done in this present life."" But the understanding and interpretation of the word ""shall be judged according to the deeds"" has often been held in tension with the basic theological principle of the Reformation, namely, ""justification by grace alone through faith."" 110819

In Crocodile Country
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 9789381523605; Softcover; New; 
In Crocodile Country is a play that is packed with high drama and portrays, through the voice of its characters, the whole gamut of emotions—good and evil—lurking inside each of us.The country is on the brink of erupting into nation-wide communal riots. Seven people —supposedly strangers— take refuge in an off-the-highway Christian-owned resort believing they will be safe in there. While they are sorting out their tangled lives and trying to deal with the consequences of their pasts, two murderous gangs are advancing on the highway— one coming up the road and other down the road. There is no place to hide and there is no place to run. When there is nothing left to lose, deep rooted instincts come to the fore. But if life is uncertain, so is death. Read on to find out how the night brings out in each of them the realisation of their self, truths about themselves that they will have to live with…if life and/or death gives them a chance.Printed Pages: 192. 106548
