19201 Madhukar Thompson
Enlightenment May or May Not Happen
Zen Publications/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 0966524519; Softcover; New; 
“How can I tell if I’m making progress in my spiritual search?” “Can I speed it up at all, and if so -- how?” Answers to these and other crucial recurrent questions can be found in this book. But be warned: these answers are uncompromising and may shatter your misconceptions. Ramesh S. Balsekar -- life-long devotee of Ramana Maharshi, and disciple of Nisargadatta Maharaj-has been sharing his wisdom with seekers from all walks of life, for the past 20 years. Gently but insistently, he points to the fact that there is nothing anyone can do hasten his or her spiritual progress, because the individual seeker, the “me”-entity, just does not exist. The outcome of our spiritual search is not in our hands. Rather, it is in the hands of that power -- call it Consciousness or God-which turned us into seekers in the first place. All manifestation is a reflection of that same impersonal Consciousness, and it is That which is seeking and which does or does not become enlightened, according to Its own ineluctable functioning. Madhukar Thompson recorded, transcribed and edited all conversations featured in this book. Brimming with earnestness and authenticity, they stand as a vivid testimony to the modern-day seeker and provide invaluable insights into his/ her predicament. The text is illustrated with a series of cartoons which underscore key aspects of Sri Balsekar’s teaching. They ensure that the book, and the seeking itself, are lively experiences, full of enjoyment and liberally sprinkled with laughter. Printed Pages: 300. 111627

19202 Madhukar Thompson
Enlightenment
Zen Publications/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 0966524527; Softcover; New; 
“I no longer care if I get enlightened or not. In fact, I don’t care even if I do care !” Such is the seeker’s attitude just prior to the occurrence of enlightenment, according to Ramesh S. Balsekar -- a life-long devotee of Ramana Maharshi and disciple of Nisargadata Maharaj. This book -- the sequel to Enlightenment May or May not Happen-deals with a wide range of topics including karma, reincarnation, the nature of manifestation, the guru-disciple relationship and the contrast between enlightened and unenlightened experience. The central theme, however, is the spiritual search and what can or cannot be done to speed up its progress. All conversations featured in this book were recorded, transcribed and edited by Madhukar Thomson. Brimming with earnestness and authenticity, they document Ramesh’s unique ability to adapt ancient Advaita Vedanta teachings to suit the predicament of the modern-day seeker. The text is illustrated by a series of cartoons which serve to remind us that even the serious business of spirituality has its funny side, and which ensure that the book, and the seeking itself, are lively experiences, full of enjoyment and liberally sprinkled with laughter.

19203 Madhukar Thompson
Gentle Hammer, Friendly Sword, Silent Arrow
Zen Publications/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 0966524535; Softcover; New; 
This book encapsulates the Advaita Vedanta teachings of Ramesh S. Balsekar. The first part-Gentle Hammer-features a series of aphorisms, each of which sums up one element of his teaching. Once the seeker’s ego has been weakened by this gentle but persistent hammering, the Friendly Sword is ready to finish the job.This second part consists of Ramesh’s answers to 24 key questions put to him by the editor, Madhukar Thompson, at a seminar given in the idyllic surroundings of Kovalam Beach, Kerala, India.The third part-Silent Arrow-is a reprint of “The Search for God-Truth-Reality,” an article that Ramesh contributed to “The Mountain Path,” a bi-yearly magazine published by the Sri Ramanashram. In this article, Ramesh manages to condense his entire teaching into a few pages. It is written with such precision and profound insight that, while reading it, the reader is led to experience silence-the highest form of teaching. The pithy aphorisms, the brevity of the question-and-answer exreacts and the zen-like clarity of the article make this book an ideal introduction to Ramesh’s teaching. Printed Pages: 184. 111633

Alternative Standpoints: A Tribute to Kalidas Bhattacharyya
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8192570290; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The anthology Alternative Standpoints: A Tribute to Kalidas Bhattacharyya is a tribute to Prof. Kalidas Bhattacharyya, the eminent thinker of twentieth-century India, on his birth centenary by his students. A distinguished philosopher and an academician, Prof. Bhattacharyya presented philosophy in an original way with scientific spirit. He was essentially a metaphysician and his metaphysics was deeply rooted in the traditions of Advaita Vedanta and Shaivism. His ultimate concern was to present a theory of freedom and a theory of the possibility of realizing that freedom.In this collection eminent scholars have written on different aspects of his philosophy. This anthology is divided into four parts – the first one concentrating on his metaphysics, the second part dealing with his views on freedom, the third one with education and science and the fourth one is a reminiscence of his student and his family members. In short this anthology tries to present a picture of Kalidas Bhattacharyya as a philosopher and also as a man within the two covers.This volume is expected to familiarize students and present-day philosophers the persona of Prof. Bhattacharyya and his philosophical positioning and pedagogical skillset.

Displaying India's Heritage: Archaeology and the Museum Movement in Colonial India
Orient BlackSwan; Hyderabad, India; 2015; 8125059024; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Displaying India's Heritage describes the history of museum-making in the Indian subcontinent in the 1800s and 1900s with special emphasis on the experience of Bengal. It details the connection between the museum movement and the broader political and cultural environment of the time. The central discussion focuses on the colonial Indian Museum in Calcutta, which began as a natural history collection and soon became a repository of archaeological artefacts from across the subcontinent. The emerging contest between imperialism and nationalism shaped the visualisation in the display boxes here. In describing this history, the book also highlights the complex relationship between knowledge and power. During the period of high nationalism, when regional histories-often blended with mythical narratives-became popular, scientific history writing placed an emphasis on archaeological knowledge. Local museums began asserting their right over excavated artefacts and princely states presented the pre-eminent position of their families through palace museums; through these histories of provincial and local museums, the book shows how museum-making was intimately tied to competing political loyalties and identities. It presents a convincing case to consider museums as a modern public sphere where the territorial and cultural bases of nationhood were negotiated. Issuing from strong archival research, Displaying India's Heritage draws a connection between the 'culture of history'-constituted by the knowledge of history and the historical imagination of people-and a series of individual endeavours in history-writing, collecting and museum-building. This volume will interest students of modern Indian cultural history, museology, archaeology and cultural studies. Printed Pages: 400 with 4 colour and 15 b/w images. 038347

Ecology, Culture and Philosophy
Abhinav Publications/Kaveri Books; New Delhi, India; 817017239X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
"Ecology, Culture and Philosophy is an important collection of essays that illustrate the continuing validity and relevance of the system of metaphysics developed by Basanta Kumar Mallik, one of the great 20th century Indian thinkers. One of the contributors unravels issues in ecology, and discusses how radically new ways of thinking can offer a way out of the crisis of the modern industrial system which threatens the survival of the human species. Another study attempts to see the conjection of musical development and cultural values in relation to both tradition and modern human experience. Yet another essay examines the domain of philosophical enquiry and develops a new perspective on the relationship between ideas and patterns of thought. 108005

Gangadhar Meher: Selected Works
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8173052123; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Gangadhar Meher (1862-1924) is well-known all over Orissa as swabhaba kabi, a born genius', for his poetry that is delightfully direct, spontaneous and full of natural grace. He occupies as distinguished a place in Oriya poetic canon as Radhanath Ray and Madhusudan Rao, his senior contemporaries and synthesizes the best of both poets such as the former's artistic beauty and the latter's philosophical depth with his own a rich fare of authentic human sentiments, moral concerns and staunch spiritual faith, all animated by a mythopoeic imagination and culminating in a cosmic vision of ananda or divine bliss. Meher's oeuvre is immense, characterized by a wide range of formal and tonal variations. His long epic narratives, namely' Tapaswini, Pranaya Ballari and Kichaka Badha have been regarded as classics of Oriya poetry. Printed Pages: 950. 100291

Unfolding: Contemporary Indian Textiles
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 9789383098835; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This is an unusual and vital examination of how has the rich and diverse textile craft tradition been adopted and adapted by craftsmen, designers and artists. Traditional techniques and motifs are re-worked in entirely different ways; experimentation not perfection is the goal. The author looks at ‘new interpretations made within the current cultural landscape by designers who dare to take steps into the unknown’. These range from NGO’s working in rural districts to small designers in the cities. Separate chapters examine discuss the work of twenty-three designers in terms of their experimentation in texture, reduction to minimalism, surface treatment and the joy of maximalism. For example, Raw mango glories in the minimalism of ‘dot drop’ while Bai-Lou takes the small motifs found in traditional jamdani weaving and scaled them up into large bold, geometric patterns. In Kutch, architect and designer Kirit Dave has deconstructed the rigidly arithmetic system of ikat weaving into deliberate fracture and dissonance, while Raj Shroff constructs, deconstructs, pierces, frays and embellishes fabrics to make highly theatrical garments that allude to Punk subculture. Street culture is brought out in the work of Play Clan, while Good Earth draws motifs from elements of architecture, history, nature and Bollywood. The last chapter looks at the contemporary artists such as Mithu Sen, Manisha Parekh and Gopika Nath that use fibre and fabric to express their views.

Tämän kirjan avulla halutaan kannustaa perheitä ja nuorisoa lähtemään ulos huomaamaan, mikä luonnonvara maamme metsät ovat. Metsässä liikkumiseen ei tarvita erityisiä taitoja, terveellä järjellä pärjää hyvin lyhyehköillä retkillä. Jotkut kirjassa kuvatut toiminnot vaativat kuitenkin maanomistajan luvan ja kalastamiseen tarvitaan, pyyntitavasta riippuen, ehkä kalastuslupa. Printed Pages: 127. 114417

The Purva Minamsa Sutras of Jaimini: Translat
Chaukhamba Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This volume is extracted from probably the most famous and authoritative reference work on Hinduism, titled-The Sacred Books of the Hindus. The series was devised by the well-known scholarly institution-the Panini Office in Allahabad, for the exclusive purpose of making available some of the most important sacred books of the Hindus providing the original Sanskrit text along with its English translation. The translation work of the individual books was entrusted to expert scholars in the field. The Sacred Books of the Hindus Series brings together the best writings upon philosophical subjects from the sacred scriptures of the Hindus. These historical and critical texts provide a complete framework for the understanding of the philosophical and spiritual tenets of the Hindus. Many of these texts are very uncommon and are useful today not only to teachers, but the researchers, students, philosophers and above all the general reader. The Sacred Books of the Hindus is the result of one of the most impressive publishing endeavours of the twentieth century. The work was devised along new lines, a simple system envisaged by the Panini Office and B.D. Basu, and its contributors included some of the leading scholars of the day. It represented the first attempt to bring a coherent method to the compilation of Hindu scriptures which could be of use to both, the scholar and the lay educated person. We are proud to make available individual volumes of the series on popular demand from the readers. The complete series in 30 volumes and 38 parts is also available.Printed Pages: 543. 100658

19281 Maharajaj Sir V.S & Rangarao Bahadur (Authors)
Hindu Religion
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1995; 8172680791; Hardcover; New; New; 
Is Hinduism homogenous or heterogeneous in character. The variety in worship, usages and observances often detracts one from the quality of oneness in religion. The sacred writings of the Aryan people are the product of several ages intended for the propagation of particular doctrines, as they were taught from time to time by the founders of the several schools of theology and philosophy. One has thus to endeavour to evolve a rule of guidance out of conflicting statements and practices. This is the objectives of this book, translated from the original in Telgu. One has to consider the Hindu religion as a combination of heterogeneous beliefs. The objects of worship extend from the elements and inanimate objects to Siva and Kesava. But a common name, Hinduism, has been adopted because what ever may be the individual convictions in the greatness of particular deities, Siva and Kesava are, for all Hindus, the general objects of adoration. The book concentrates on four broad aspects of Hinduism: Worship, Observances and Usages, Practical Hinduism and Philosophical Hinduism. All beliefs, images, schools of thought and the mysteries of the Hindu heritage have been studied here in great detail. Printed Pages: 198. 112352

19291 Mahasweta Devi: Translated By Pinaki Bhattacharya
Romtha
Seagull Books; Kolkata, India; 2004; 8170462576; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
'. . . one day, Sharan arrived. His virile body, his golden hair, the look that glowed in his pale eyes, intense, brooding-all of this threw her into a turmoil. Subhadra fell madly in love.' A beautiful young man condemned to death for a crime of passion; his lover, the beautiful courtesan whom he kills but continues to mourn and yearn for; and a lonely young widow burning with unrequited desire. This love triangle set in twelfth century Bengal, moving between the royal city of Gaur and the forests and rivers of rural Bengal, centres on the fate of the romtha, the branded criminal who awaits his own death. Ironically named Sharan-refuge-there is no refuge for the protagonist of this tale of passion, vengeance and the overwhelming hunger for life. MAHASWETA DEVI is one of India's foremost writers. Her powerful, satiric fiction has won her recognition in the form of the Sahitya Akademi (1979), Jnanpith (1996) and Ramon Magsaysay (1996) awards, amongst several other literary honours. She was also awarded the Padmasree in 1986, for her activist work amongst dispossessed tribal communities. PINAKI BHATTACHARYA is a consultant, teacher, writer and actor who lives and works in Calcutta. In the Name of the Mother : four stories Intro. and Tr. by Radha Chakravarty ISBN 81 7046 211 8 Fiction/Women's Studies Price : Rs 275 £ 9.95 $ 14.95 His mother's gone, there's no one to cook hot rice when it's evening . . . No one to say, 'Son, sit near my lap and eat.' 'Ma, from Dusk to Dawn' is the story of a woman from a nomadic tribe, catapulted by her circumstances into the role of a spiritual mother whose so-called mystical powers depend upon her denial of maternal affection towards her own son during daylight hours. 'Sindhubala' describes the anguish of a childless woman forced to play the role of a semi-divine healer called upon to save other people's offspring. 'Jamunabati's Mother' offers a stringent critique of a consumerist society indifferent to those on the margins and 'Giribala' presents the plight of a village woman whose daughters are trafficked by their own father, to pay for the house he dreams of building. The stories in this volume are linked by a common thread: the idea of the mother. They represent a range of responses to the concept of the maternal, exposing how the traditional deification of motherhood in India often conceals a collective exploitation and attempt to restrict women to their socially prescribed roles while denying them the right to articulate their individual needs and desires. At the same time, they also show the strategies evolved by women to survive and circumvent the repression inflicted on them by social norms. The maternal thus emerges as an ambivalent concept, with both restrictive and emancipatory potential Twist in the Folktale Jokumaraswami/CHANDRASEKHAR KAMBAR Pebet/H. KANHAILAL Charandas Chor/HABIB TANVIR With an Introduction by Ananda Lal ISBN : 81 7046 229 0 Playscript Price : Rs 200 £ 14.95 $ 20.95 'What could possibly ally a southern fertility drama from Karnataka, an eastern tale from Manipur about a bird family fighting a cat, and a northern story rendered into Chhattisgarhi about a truthful thief?' -Ananda Lal Each of the playwrights in this collection takes a folktale and turns it into a contemporary experimental play, intervening in the traditional material and reshaping conventions from an urban perspective. Although the folk and rural elements remain embedded in the body of the narratives, it is interesting to note the shifts and intersections which occur in the process of rendering folklore as a present-day performative text. Jokumaraswami by leading Kannada playwright and poet CHANDRASEKHAR KAMBAR is a vibrant, earthy play which creatively reworks the folk myth of a phallic god of fertility into a powerfully contemporary anti-feudal message. Pebet is a folktale about a mother bird fighting to protect her children from a predatory cat politicized by H. KANHAILAL, who transforms this familiar story into a struggle against the political and cultural colonization of Manipur. Charandas Chor by veteran playwright/director HABIB TANVIR, performed by Naya Theatre's Chattisgarhi folk artists, is a contemporary Indian classic depicting the irrepressible folk hero and 'honest thief', Charandas, a Robin Hood figure who charms his way into everyone's hearts. The Third Race Ashok Ahuja ISBN : 81 7046 247 9 Price : Rs. 400 £ 12.95 $ 19.95 The Third Race is a fable. At its heart is a little tortoise but this is not his story. It is a story of the river that flows as it must, in order to be itself. No, this is not a book of wisdom; only a chronicle of a journey. It is a tale of awe and of wonder, with a range of emotions, taking us across the thin line that often separates confusion and despair, from faith and hope. The central character of this fable is a little tortoise making his first long journey alone. His destination is the 'Source of all Stories' - his grandmother, the 'original' storyteller. He sets his sights on the sun and the stars, following their crossings while the sky and earth watch over him, lending their expanse to his eventful journey. His encounters along the way, with a bird, a fish, a snail, a flower, a rock… help us understand our place in the world. Through the dialogue between the past and the present, Time unfolds itself, laying bare for our consideration, many of the most fundamental issues of our time, and of all time. Ashok Ahuja trained as a Film Director, and has written, produced, and directed award-winning feature films in India. He has been a Senior Fellow in Residence at the Harvard University Center for the Study of World Religions. The Third Race is his first book. Printed Pages: 94. 000986

19293 Mahatma Gandhi
Healthy Living: According to Gandhi
Orient Publishing/Orient Paperbacks; New Delhi, India; 8122205739; Softcover; New; 
A discerning selection of thematic essays on health & sustainable wellness by one of the truly great figures of the twentieth century.True health is a balanced state of physical, emotional, spiritual, mental and social well-being attained only by living in obedience to the laws of Nature.Illness is the result not only of our actions but also of our thoughts. More people die out of the fear of disease than the disease itself.Nature has given our body an innate capacity to heal itself. Our role is to help promote this process by removing obstacles to healing so that body can take care of itself.Ignorance is the root of disease. We often get bewildered at the most ordinary diseases, and in our anxiety to get better simply make matters worse. Our ignorance of the most elementary laws of nature and health leads us to adopt wrong remedies..."It is far easier and safer to prevent illness by observing the laws of health than to set about curing it... It is the duty of all thoughtful men to understand aright the laws of health... The object of (this book) is to give an account of these laws. We shall also consider the best methods of cure for some of the most common diseases." — Gandhi.Printed Pages: 160. 106677

Samartha Theory of Panini and Sentence Derivation
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1984; 8121501261; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Panini's Astadhyayi is a compendium of linguistic theories. Panini bases his grammatical description of the language on certain concepts underlying his sutras, but for which he could not have exhausted the description of the Bhasa. Here is the theory of Samartha pervading the whole grammar of Panini. The author brings out the original import of Samartha and explains the theory as a unique type of linguistic concept thoroughly useful not only for ancient Indian grammarians but also for modern linguists. The author has pioneered in demonstrating the genuine derivational process, defying the traditional texts in form of commentaries, and the present pedagogy prevailing in the universities etc. The author proves with internal evidences of implications and application of the sutras that Panini's Astadhyayi is basically meant for the derivation of the sentences, word-derivation being only an intermediatory step. The author incidentally brings out the language-theory of Panini which is found as an integrated system and not a piece-meal one. The book reserves for itself the credit to reveal the real stand of Panini as grammarian and linguist. The work is altogether unique and thought-provoking which will be found to pen a new dimension and to provide the lead to the modern mind with respect to the studies in Panini in the East and the West.
