18807 Maurice Winternitz (Author) & V.S. Sharma (Tr.)
A History of Indian Literature (Vol. I: Introduction, Veda, Epics, Puranas and Tantras)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8120802640; Hardcover; New; New; 
Nearly seventy-five years ago Maurice Winternitz, the famous Austrian scholar and wrote the first volume of his A History of Indian Literature in German. This was followed by the second and third volumes after a few years. This English translation is based on the original German work and has been revised in the light of further researches on the subject by different scholars in India and elsewhere. The volume is divided into two sections. Section 1 relates to veda (the four samhitas), Brahamanas, Aranyakas, Upanisads, Vedangas and the literature of the Ritual. It discusses some of the most complicated problems such as the Age of the Veda, etc. on which Vedic scholars have differed widely. Section II relates to the study of two great Epics of India: The Ramayana and the Mahabharata. It carries out a general survey of the Puranic literature, and provides ample information about the Tantras too. The book presents a history of ancient culture of the Veda, the philosophical thought of Upanisads, the ethos of the epics and Puranas, spiritual and material contents of the Tantra literature.Printed Pages: 602. 102588

Elements of String Cosmology
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0521868750; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 175 x 255 Mm 
The standard cosmological picture of our Universe emerging from a 'big bang' leaves open many fundamental questions which string theory, a unified theory of all forces of nature, should be able to answer. The first book dedicated to string cosmology, it contains a pedagogical introduction to the basic notions of the subject. It describes the new possible scenarios suggested by string theory for the primordial evolution of our Universe. It discusses the main phenomenological consequences of these scenarios, stresses their differences from each other, and compares them to the more conventional models of inflation. The book summarizes over 15 years of research in this field and introduces current advances. It is self-contained, so it can be read by astrophysicists with no knowledge of string theory, and high-energy physicists with little understanding of cosmology. Detailed and explicit derivations of all the results presented provide a deeper appreciation of the subject. • First book fully devoted to string cosmology, summarizing the results of 15 years of work • Includes self-contained introductions to cosmology and string theory • Contains detailed derivations of all presented results allowing for a deeper understanding and aiding preparation for independent research Contents Preface; Acknowledgements; Notation, units and conventions; 1. A short review of standard and inflationary cosmology; 2. The basic string cosmology equations; 3. Conformal invariance and string effective action; 4.

The Very, Very Rich and How They Got That Way
Vision Books/Orient Paperbacks; New Delhi, India; 8170949130; Softcover; New; 
This classic reveals how truly big money is made. It recounts the spectacular success stories of 15 crème de la crème of the self-made super-rich. Now, the wealthy are not just ordinary people, and the very, very rich are an even more special breed — and it was the desire to discover their mindset and approach that spurred Gunther's inquiry.This book is terrific entertainment, for these stories are stories of ordinary human beings rising to stunning heights. Each is a man who took his material environment as he found it and conquered it absolutely. In a sense, then, these are fairy tales.Which brings up the second good reason for reading this book: The lives of the very, very rich gathered here are highly instructive. Their secrets and methods can be learned from, adapted and applied by all those who themselves harbour dreams of supreme fortune."COME WITH ME NOW, ye seekers, and stand before this great golden door. In a while we will turn the jewelled key and go in. Step softly. Speak in whispers. We are about to enter the presence of Wealth . . ." Printed Pages: 296. 106690

Brand New World: How India, China, Russia, Brazil are Reshaping Business
Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 8184951329; Softcover; New; 
We live in a brand new world where marketing is taking on incredible new forms, especially in the hyper-developing countries India, China, Russia and Brazil. The almost unimaginable economic growth in these nations is revolutionizing marketing across the world.Take, for instance, India’s best version of a hustling oligarch: Vijay Mallya. In 1983 he inherited the Bangalore-based UB Group, a liquor company that was third-tier at best. United Breweries is now India’s biggest brewer, buoyed by the Kingfisher brand. Vijay Mallya started an airline with the same name after a ban on beer advertising. The Indian oligarch parlayed the beer brand to launch a flourishing surrogate one. Focus Media Holding, founded in 2003, has transformed China’s advertising landscape with over 190,000 screens scattered throughout the country. The founder Jason Jiang has amassed an estimated $1.8 billion fortune. An ex-advertising executive at a Shanghai agency, Jiang bet it all on a hunch that Chinese consumers wouldn’t mind watching ads while waiting for an elevator. And he was right.In this book the author shares other such groundbreaking business models and marketing strategies that every business visionary needs to understand. Brisk, fascinating, and a little bit shocking, Brand New World is an indispensable guide for the new era of global marketing.Printed Pages: 280. 105580

They all share the conviction that there is suffering in the world and that has to be removed.The present study by Max Muller is a comprehensive analysis of all the six schools of Indian thought.

18829 Maxim Gorky
Mother
Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 8179920224; Softcover; New; 
Mother, the immortal classic of Maxim Gorky, one of the world's best-loved writers, is the story of the radicalization of an uneducated woman from her dull peasant existence into active participation in her people's struggle for justice. Through her work she frees herself from the cowed state into which she has been beaten, and her simple motherly concern for her son becomes a motherly concern for all oppressed.To read Mother is to undergo a great emotional experience. It is a novel of strength and power, a tribute to the dignity of the individual. As one well-known literary critic puts it : "and then I came on Mother, the first of Gorky I had ever seen, and much of what I had read became thin and tasteless by comparison. It was tapestry after cotton and burlap, living, breathing people after cardboard cutouts... it was the hope and zeal of all human beings."Printed Pages: 396. 105487

The Other Side of Policing
Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8189766724; Hardcover; New; New; 
Forgotten and buried deep behind the uniform is a common man. As The Other Side of Policing attempts to break the stereotype of policing as an obsession with guns, crime and criminals, it insists that even the cops have a penchant for humour. At times, for people like Maxwell, it is the humour that makes them survive in a system that kills initiatives.The book is based on the author’s own experiences as a policeman for nearly 35 years where he provides an insider’s account of someone who has experienced everything at close quarters and can afford to be critical of the system as a whole. He recounts gripping stories about how policeman learn to survive under the axe of the media, politicians, common people and their own seniors.In his anecdotal account, the author talks of various incidents and projects the men behind uniform as human beings who could succumb to the trials and tribulations of power. He talks about the inability of cops to do anything when high profile politicians enact stage dramas to stay in the limelight, how the cops take liberties to kill at will, how a South Indian to whom all Sikhs looked the same learnt to differentiate between them and how an April Fool’s prank resulted in a senior officer waiting at the airport to receive a VIP when none was scheduled to arrive.His narration laced with humour provides a fresh look at unexplored alleys and brings home the point that at the end of the day we all need our daily dose of banter and policing provides ample opportunities for that. The author hopes that this book will connect easily with the man on the street and help bridge the gap between police and people. Printed Pages: 278. 107263

Indian Media in a Globalised World
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8132104013; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book explores the transformation of Indian media in the context of two major developments: globalisation (which Sociologist Anthony Giddens terms as being ‘revolutionary’) and advances in communication technologies. It is rich in empirical details of how the Indian media has evolved in the past two decades, particularly in the context of potential to transform, construct and nurture particular identities in response to globalisation. The study of the transformation of Indian media is significant because not only has globalisation allowed access to a host of things hitherto represented as ‘foreign’ to Indian culture by the media, but has also opened the floodgates for foreign media. Adopting a multi-disciplinary approach, this book looks at the role of media in purveying political, economic and cultural identities, the current definitions of ‘we’, ‘they’, and the ‘other’, and how the ‘other’ is perceived in contemporary India. The discussions cover all forms of media, that is, newspaper, films, radio, television and online media, along with media policy and other economic challenges facing the media.

Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 1107046068; Hardcover; New; New; 
Under what conditions are some developing countries able to create stable democracies while others have slid into instability and authoritarianism? To address this classic question at the center of policy and academic debates The Promise of Power investigates a striking puzzle: why upon the 1947 Partition of British India was India able to establish a stable democracy while Pakistan created an unstable autocracy? Drawing on interviews colonial correspondence and early government records to document the genesis of two of the twentieth century's most celebrated independence movements Maya Tudor refutes the prevailing notion that a country's democratization prospects can be directly attributed to its levels of economic development or inequality. Instead she demonstrates that the differential strengths of India's and Pakistan's independence movements directly account for their divergent democratization trajectories. She also establishes that these movements were initially constructed to pursue historically conditioned class interests. By illuminating the source of this enduring contrast The Promise of Power offers a broad theory of democracy's origins that will interest scholars and students of comparative politics democratization state-building and South Asian political history.Printed Pages: 254 with 8 b/w illustrations, 1 table & 3 maps. 101458

Hindu Selves in a Modern World: Guru Faith in the Mata Amritanandamayi Mission
Routledge; London, UK; 041533988X; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This book explores devotional Hinduism in a modern context of high consumerism and revolutionised communications.

By drawing upon multi-sited ethnographic fieldwork among the Mata's primarily urban, educated 'middle class' Indian devotees, the author provides crucial insights into new trends in popular Hinduism in apost-colonial and rapidly modernizing Indian setting.

Confessions of a Thug
Asian Educational Services; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8120603303; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 22 Cm 
The Thugs were a secret society of highway robbers and murderers who struck havoc in India. So secret was the fraternity that they remained undetected for centuries till the labours of William Sleeman traced them out and destroyed them. The Thugs, usually disguised as a party of pilgrims, joined up with other caravans and at the opportune moment strangled the hosts and decamped with the spoils. Their method of killing was strangulation with a yellow scarf and they believed that their occupation had divine sanction. They had their own language - Ramaseena, and operated all over India. This book is the tale of a fictious Thug called Ameer Ali: even though the protagonist is ficticious, the novel is grounded firmly in fact and elucidates all the rites, customs and operations of this murderous clan in faithful detail.Printed Pages: 342. 102889

18854 Mechthild Guha
Danube, Ganges, and Other Life Streams
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8178243792; Hardcover; New; New; 
Of this short but deeply thoughtful memoir Mechthild Guha says: “It had never occurred to me that it would be possible to pack the memory of seventy years into a few pages. Nevertheless, out of an eventful and varied life, I have tried to select those aspects which not only speak of me but also the many people and places that make up my memories.” A lover of nature, cats, and solitude, Mechthild Guha’s sensitivity, humanity, and curiosity also make her an insightful observer. Among the many fine things about her account is her refusal to defer to reputation: in her observations and assessments there is always the assumption that social status is irrelevant, and she relates well only to those she likes as human beings.Printed Pages: 126. 101784

Exploring Medieval India: Sixteenth to Eighteenth Centuries (Vol. II: Culture, Gender and Regional Patterns)
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8125041044; Softcover; New; 
Probing different aspects of India’s society and culture, this volume comprises four thematic clusters—diverse forms of culture; gender and medievalism; patterns of transition; and region, regional formations and the Mughal Empire. A comprehensive introduction places the essays in perspective showing how the Mughal Empire remained composite, intricate and loosely-structured, perhaps hegemonic but over a disparate, divergent, energetic and lively economy and society. Focusing on culture in its diverse forms, section one brings to the fore the expansion of Persian as the language of power, the development of insha as a literary trend, the nuances of Mughal architecture, the importance of Mughal paintings and how they became a medium of recording the history of the Mughal empire, the various genres of music and their explicit manifestations of the gender politics. Concepts of love, the politics of marriage and reproduction, and the role of women within and outside the confines of the Mughal household, form the second section. The third section discusses the emergence of provincial and regional political configurations, the shifts in the Indian economy and traces the growing European influence in the rise of the East India Company. The last section contributes to the understanding of how and to what extent different geographical conditions determined the logistics of the outer frontiers of the Mughal empire, the importance of centralisation of authority around local rulers, the reasons behind Akbar’s territorial expansion, and the continued presence of pluralistic socio-cultural centres characterised by Hindu-Muslim symbiosis.Printed Pages: 518. 101950

Women in Malayalam Cinema: Naturalising Gender Hierarchies
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8125038655; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Drawing on contemporary critical theories and academic debates, Women in Malayalam Cinema: Naturalising Gender Hierarchies analyses Malayalam cinema and the question of women from different perspectives. In its focus on woman-cinema interface, as depicted in a century of Malayalam cinema, this book addresses a wide range of themes crucial for a nuanced understanding of Malayalam film culture—gender stereotyping, marriage and family, the aftermaths of matriliny, caste and gender relations, hegemonic patriarchy, female friendships and soft porn. These diverse concerns are held together by a key focal point: the paradox of regressive modernisation in Kerala’s cultural politics. While the widely discussed and extolled ‘Kerala Model’ has yielded much grist to the statistical mills of Left-liberal developmental sociologists, questions concerning more precise connections between the impressive developmental indices and the cultural politics that shape the lives and subjectivities of women within this ‘model state’ have remained relatively unexplored. Deconstructing patriarchal dominance in Malayalam cinema, mainstream and avant garde, this collection elucidates how films offer stereotypical images of women conforming to subordination. Be it Vigathakumaran (1928), or Sthree (1950), or a more recent one Achanarangathaveedu (2005)—there is a constant failure across films to look beyond the portrayal of woman as someone ‘who loves to cook and clean, wash and scrub, shine and polish for her man’. This volume, a first of its kind on Malayalam cinema, has diverse contributions from litterateurs, film critics and screenwriters, and will be of interest to scholars of film, media and gender studies.

Rama and Ayodhya
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8173054517; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 22 Cm 
This work briefly examines the antiquity of the Rama Katha and spread of the Rama cult over the Indian subcontinent in the context of claims of Left academics on its late popularity. Its main focus is the conflict at Ayodhya over the Ramjanmabhumi temple allegedly destroyed by the Mughal Emperor, Babar, in 1528. It examines the accounts of foreign travellers in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and British administrator-scholars in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, which testify to Ayodhya’s continuing importance as a pilgrimage centre associated with Rama’s birthplace. The extended litigation over the Ramjanmabhumi/Babri Masjid in colonial times further attests to the persistence of the claims to the Janmabhumi. From the late 1980s, Left historians have been in the forefront of the campaign against the Rama temple. They have argued that Rama worship was an eighteenth-nineteenth century phenomenon and the present-day Ayodhya acquired its standing and identity only in the fifth century AD, during the rule of the imperial Guptas. According to Left academics, the identification of the Ramjanmabhumi in Ayodhya was “a matter of faith, not of historical evidence”. They also rejected any possibility of the Babri Masjid being built on the site of the Janmabhumi temple. Excavations by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) proved the inaccuracy of these assertions. And finally, the judgement of the Allahabad High Court (Lucknow Bench) marked a decisive moment in the dispute over the Janmabhumi. The writings of Left academics, the findings of the ASI, the extended arguments in the Allahabad High Court and its eventual verdict form the subject of this study.

Cultural History of Medieval India
Social Science Press and Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8187358300; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Cultural History of Medieval India is a part of the series, Readings in History. The books in this series have been edited and put together by eminent historians for their students. This anthology of readings seeks to explore Indian culture in the medieval period through five themes: kingship traditions, social processes of religious devotion, inter-cultural perception, forms of identities, and aesthetics. Written by well-known scholars, the eleven essays in this book present sub-cultures in diverse regional settings of the subcontinent. The articles suggest that culture does not exist as fragments of the ‘great’ and ‘little’, or ‘classic’ and ‘folk’ in any given tradition. In fact, variants within a given tradition interact with one another and assimilate new characteristics over time. These interactions also take place across boundaries of different religious and cultural spheres, and in the process, give meaning to the notions of the ‘self’ and the ‘other’. In an attempt to define the ‘other’ one discovers the ‘self’. These readings introduce a new way of understanding medieval Indian history by engaging with interdisciplinary methods of research on issues that are significant to everyday existence in a plural society like that of India. This book will be of great value to students of history, as well as to other readers interested in the culture of the medieval period in India. Printed Pages: 300. 031446

Elusive Terrain: Culture and Literary Memory
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2008; 019569208X; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Various strands exist in the tangled texture of our plural existence—language, translation, religion, politics, gender, caste, community, films, migration, and nostalgia for a lost home. Elusive Terrain weaves them together in thirteen essays addressing diverse issues pertaining to literature and culture in modern India. ‘Locality of Culture’, the first section, examines a few of these strands in the context of the present and looks at literary debates that cut across regional barriers in India. The essays in the second section, ‘Uses of the Past’, go back in time to inquire into aspects of religion, the construction of the nation, and forming of community identities that constitute our past. The concerns reflected in the volume are too elusive to be neatly labelled. Though written at different times, the essays are linked by the point of view of a bilingual Indian reader. Bypassing global categories like ‘postcolonial’ or ‘postmodern’ they look at the way ideas travel across language and region, and how cultural memory is selectively retrieved. 021615

'The trouble with my life is that it`s like a bra strap when you put your bra on wrong . . .` At twenty-five, life`s innumerable entanglements are getting to Arshi. Her blonde American step-mom`s trying too hard (she`s taken to welcoming guests with a traditional aarti). The gorgeous guy who has Arshi all flushed and dreamy doesn`t seem to be trying at all (he`s the Ice Prince who thaws at his own convenience). Her best friend Deeksha`s going to be married in a few months (Arshi`s still in the process of finding the correct labels for the men in her life). And, her otherwise unruffled, cocktail-concocting flatmate Topsy`s getting testier by the day because her conservative family will never approve of the darling guy she`s in love with. What`s more, there`s a cheating ex-boyfriend, a weepy neighbour and a heinous boss who need to be told where to get off. Her head spinning wildly with the sheer gravity of her life`s quandaries, Arshi realizes what she needs most now (besides a barrelful of alcohol and some serious postcoital cuddling) are just a few epiphanies of the right kind . . . Saucy, wise and audaciously candid, You Are Here introduces a bold and irresistible new voice. Printed Pages: 272. 024213

Who needs love? It only leads to trouble. Noor is having the worst year of her life. First her mother decides to leave her father. Then her dad's mother, the Horrible Old Crone, moves in to look after Noor (who's sixteen and doesn't need looking after, thank you very much). And she just knows the HOC is going to be mean about her mother because she never wanted her son to marry a Muslim. And now Noor has to attend some children-of-divorce thing after school and her gang canNOT find out. THEN she meets Ishaan. He's funny and nerdy, and likes all the same things she likes. Except love is stupid, as she's told everyone, and Ishaan isn't her type anyway. He wears glasses, participates enthusiastically in the lame children-of-divorce thing, and would rather read than play football in the break like all the other boys. Could love happen with someone who is the complete opposite of everything you've ever stood for? Can forgiveness squirm its way in with love? Printed Pages: 256. 107273

Children: Voyage into Problem Space
Abhinav Publications/Kaveri Books; New Delhi, India; 8170171814; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is an outcome of the research work conducted for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Delhi, Delhi. This work joins the new paradigm in Psychology, which is governed by the study of processes rather than products. It was heralded by the Information-Processing theory. The strategies evolved by the young school-going Indian children for voyaging through their perceived cognitive 'problem-space' towards solving a problem/making a decision were delineated and also analysed in terms of their psycho-sociological variables. The ingenious construction of the 'problem series' utilising indigenous materials is a significant contribution to the field of Cognitive Psychology where the lack of testing materials is strongly felt even today. The present research work points towards utilization of the science of Computer for psychological investigations. The importance of this work was internationally recognized when the author was invited to present it at the First Asian Regional Conference of the International Association for Cross Cultural Psychology, University of Hong Kong in March 1979.

Living the Body: Embodiment, Womanhood and Identity in Contemporary India
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8178299011; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This is a book about embodiment and identity in the context of particular women's lives in an urban setting. It is concerned with the development of a sociology of embodiment in the context of women's lives in contemporary, urban India. The focus on embodiment is mediated by gender and class, two critical elements that constitute identity in relation to embodiment. The study is based on material collected from interviews with working class women in an urban slum and with professional, upper class women, with young women in secondary schools and from material from a women's magazine. Apart from theoretical considerations, the book gives centrality to women's voice in the construction of her identity as an embodied being, located in particular socio-economic settings in urban India. The book also attempts to provide an understanding of resistance in the context of women's lives, both as a conceptual tool and a strategy in everyday life. Printed Pages: 216. 028105

Contested Spaces: Citizenship and Belonging in Contemporary Times
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8125040927; Hardcover; New; New; 
Individuals and groups negotiate increasingly complex relationships between the local, the national and the global. Contested Spaces: Citizenship and Belonging in Contemporary Times focuses on the everyday experience of divided or contested allegiances, and foregrounds the experiential, the embodied and the emotional, while also examining the social and the cultural. Divided into three sections, this volume is broadly grouped around the themes of exclusionary practices, experiences of identity, and gender. The first section opens with a powerful commentary on the practices deployed by the state to enforce adherence to a desired narrative of the nation-state. It goes on to show how the state uses the concept of ‘time’ in schooling practices as a means for the further marginalisation and exclusion of underprivileged subjects. It also demonstrates how immigrant and minority students experience processes of ‘othering’ in multicultural/ institutional context. In discussing the question of identity, the second section analyses the role of the state and shows how immigrants, seeking to establish a legitimate place for themselves, have to constantly grapple with their dual allegiance. Issues of identity are reflected in art as well as where the state plays a role in either promoting or modifying folk art. Aesthetics, as a result, become embroiled with politics when traditional tribal art and craft become politicised—it may be deployed in protest, or co-opted to facilitate assimilation. Section three variously examines the changing nature of masculinity in Sri Lanka and its relevance to the dynamics of conflict within the self and the nation; the Buddhist Medaw nuns of Myanmar, whose heightened asceticism to create an identity for themselves is co-opted by the state; and four films made by Muslim women in the West that seek to sensitise Western audiences about the war in Afghanistan by using an approach that valourises the West and denigrates Islam and Afghanistan.Printed Pages: 284. 102006

Conciousness Time and Praxis
New Bharatiya Book Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8183150608; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The essays on Consciousness and Time inspired evidently by different views in philosophy try to see how the intellectual edifices built in the other disciplines regarding these rest often on processes which formulate no established hypotheses about their origin, structure and nature. The debates and disputes continue as much as their inaccessible nature. The various viewpoints in the disciplines of physics and philosophy merely facilitate a direction that could possibly be taken for further investigation, at times, leading to yet another mystery. The notions and boundaries of our understanding however, have not allowed human activities to be complacent and hence, enquiries and explorations continue. The essay on Praxis discovers young Marx's discerning views on the other side of the economic theories that had baffled him for something. Interestingly, this concept of Praxis maintain similarity in perceptions that the Bhagavadgita has earlier brought out through 'niskama karma'.Printed Pages: 146. 104031

Women Writing Gender: Marathi Fiction Before Independence
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8178243369; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book tells the several stories of how Maharashtrian women found a ‘voice’ in the late nineteenth century. It shows how they created a literary space for themselves, deploying fiction to depict worlds other than those available in male writing, as well as dreams and aspirations unseen in society before they were articulated by their fiction. Having been excluded from mainstream prose, women also created a parallel reform discourse which displayed various shades of feminism. After an introductory overview of men and women writers of Marathi fiction before Independence, this book presents in translation the work of six iconic women writers: Kashibai Kanitkar, Indirabai Sahasrabuddhe, Vibhavari Shirurkar, Geeta Sane, Shakuntala Paranjpye, and Prema Kantak. Their novels and short stories unfold the journeys of articulate women towards new paradigms, and ultimately towards a demand for gender equality—which is women’s gift to Marathi literature.Printed Pages: 386. 101881

Nivedan: The Autobiography of Dharmanand Kosambi
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8178243253; Softcover; New; 
The autobiography of Dharmanand Kosambi (1876–1947), pioneering scholar of Pali and Buddhist Studies, is one of the most moving and spellbinding life stories ever written. Born in rural Goa, Dharmanand came under the spell of the Buddha’s teachings during his adolescence. At an early age he set off on an incredible journey of austere self-training across the length and breadth of Britain’s Indian Empire, halting to educate himself at places connected with Buddhism. His sojourns included living in Sri Lanka to master Pali, in a Burmese cave as a bhikshu, and in some viharas of North India—begging for monastic sustenance—as well as in Nepal and Sikkim which he reached after arduous, sometimes barefoot, treks. Over these itinerant years Dharmanand acquired such mastery of the Buddhist canon that he was variously appointed to teach and research at Calcutta, Baroda, Harvard, and Leningrad.Printed Pages: 204. 101917
