19201 Matthew Toulmin
Language History of the Kamta and Cooch Behar Region
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8175968974; Softcover; New; 
The Indo – Aryan languages and dialects constitute a dialect continuum characterised by variable non – discrete boundaries between speech communities. In order to reconstruct linguistic history it is necessary to take stock of this sociolinguistic context and adjust the methods of reconstruction accordingly. This study presents a theoretically robust sociolinguistic framework for historical reconstruction which supplements a traditional comparative reconstruction of phonology and morphology. The language varieties examined in this book are known by a number of names including ‘Kamta’ ‘Rajbanshi or simply the ‘deshi bhasha’ of north Bengal and west Assam. This study provides evidence for a protolanguage termed ‘proto Kamta’ (c. AD 13 – 16 century) which was the point of common origin for these lects and defines them as a subgroup within Indo – Aryan.Printed Pages: 274. 101445

Why Meditate?: Working with Thoughts and Emotions
Hay House/TBI; New Delhi, India; 9789380480442; Softcover; New; 
Why meditate? On what? And how? In his latest book Why Meditate?â€"an instant bestseller in the author’s native Franceâ€"Matthieu Ricard aims to answer these very questions. As a molecular geneticist turned Buddhist monk, Ricard brings a wholly unique perspective to the practice of meditation. Often referred to as “the happiest man in the world,” he advises us in the ways to imbue our lives with a true sense of serenity and fulfillment. In simple, clear language, Ricard walks readers through the theories and practicalities of meditation, demonstrating its many benefits in our modern world. He shows readers how to achieve emotional balance, enhance mindfulness, expand altruistic love, and develop a sense of inner calm; while also reducing anxiety, vulnerability to pain, and tendency toward depression and anger. This enlightening book conflates the spiritual with the scientific, the transcendent with the pragmatic, and the Western world with Eastern wisdom. No matter what point of view you approach it fromâ€"whether that of personal transformation or physical healthâ€"meditation emerges as a prominent part of leading a balanced life. In the accompanying 60-minute CD, Ricard explores the concepts of freedom and self, expands on the benefits of meditation, and advises on the benefits of creating a regular meditative practice.

On the Path to Enlightenment: Heart Advice from the Great Tibetan Masters
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1611800390; Softcover; New; 
Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche inspired Matthieu Ricard to create this anthology by telling him that “when we come to appreciate the depth of the view of the eight great traditions [of Tibetan Buddhism] and also see that they all lead to the same goal without contradicting each other, we think, ‘Only ignorance can lead us to adopt a sectarian view.’” Ricard has selected and translated some of the most profound and inspiring teachings from across these traditions.The selected teachings are taken from the sources of the traditions, including the Buddha himself, Nagarjuna, Guru Rinpoche, Atisha, Shantideva, and Asanga; from great masters of the past, including Thogme Zangpo, the Fifth Dalai Lama, Milarepa, Longchenpa, and Sakya Pandita; and from contemporary masters, including the Fourteenth Dalai Lama and Mingyur Rinpoche. They address such topics as the nature of the mind; the foundations of taking refuge, generating altruistic compassion, acquiring merit, and following a teacher; view, meditation, and action; and how to remove obstacles and make progress on the path.

19206 Matthieu Ricard; Translated By Charles Hastings
Monk Dancers of Tibet
Shambhala; Boston, USA; 2003; 1570629749; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 21 Cms x 30 Cms Matthieu Ricard 
In the midst of the devastation that has been wrought on their culture, the monk dancers in the Shechen monastery in Kathmandu, Nepal, are devoted to preserving the sacred dances central to the Tantric tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. The dances, which originated in India and flourished for centuries in Tibet, are teaching stories—each mask, costume, movement, and gesture has a specific significance and embodies the values of Buddhism. The dances are the monks' spiritual gift to the lay community. The origin of the sacred Buddhist dance, or cham, goes back to the ninth century, when Guru Padmasambhava introduced Buddhism to Tibet. Through the ages, the practice has been advanced by great masters whose visionary experiences enriched and enhanced the dance forms. The sacred dances were then transmitted as accurately as possible by the masters' disciples from generation to generation. The dances are now preserved in exile in India, Nepal, and Bhutan, and have been presented in the West, by the monks of Shechen and other Tibetan monasteries, in the same spirit of sharing a profound inner experience. In vivid, full-color photos and illuminating text, the well-known author and photographer Matthiew Ricard reveals the painstaking preparations for and meanings behind the dances, as well as the intriguing history of this uniquely colorful teaching practice.

The Truth about Jihad
Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 9789380828107; Hardcover; New; New; 
Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loveth not transgressors. And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter; but fight them not at the Sacred Mosque, unless they (first) fight you there; but if they fight you, slay them. Such is the reward of those who suppress faith. But if they cease, Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.’Qur’an 2: 190-192 Those who believe (in the Qur'an), those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Sabians and the Christians,— any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness—on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.Qur’an 5:69Many a prophet had godly people fight along with him, without ever wavering under pressure in the cause of God, nor did they hesitate or become discouraged. God loves the steadfast. 107254

Building the Tatmadaw: Myanmar Armed Forces Since 1948
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380502793; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Ever since Myanmar regained her independence in January 1948, the Tatmadaw (Myanmar Armed Forces) has been crucial in restoring and maintaining law and order. It is one of the most important institutions in Myanmar politics. Various aspects of the Tatmadaw have been studied. The most notable area of study has been the political role of the military. This study looks at the organizational development of the Myanmar armed forces. It analyses four different aspects of the Tatmadaw: military doctrine and strategy, organization and force structure, armament and force modernization, and military training and officer education. It sets out security perceptions and policies, charting developments in each phase against the situation at the time, and also notes the contributions of the leading actors in the process. Since early 1990s, the Tatmadaw has implemented a force modernization programme. This work studies rationales and strategy behind the force modernization programme and examines the military capabilities of the Tatmadaw. Drawing extensively from archival sources and existing literature, this empirically grounded research argues that, while the internal armed security threat to the state continues to play an important role, it is the external security threat that gives more weight to the expansion and modernization of the Tatmadaw since 1988. It also argues that, despite its imperfections, the Tatmadaw has transformed from a force essentially for counter-insurgency operations into a force capable of fighting in limited conventional warfare.Printed Pages: 270. 104368

(iii) It is a tool for future editors of Vedic texts. (iv) It is a repertory of the most archaic Hindu prose. (v) It also provides some miscellaneous uses to the future researchers in the domain of Vedic studies and sciences.A must buy for all universities, colleges, institutions, scholars, researchers, and students who are engaged in Vedic studies.Printed Pages: 1100. 100323

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 crčme de la crčme 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

19262 Maxim Gorky
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.

The Promise of Power: The Origins of Democracy in India and Autocracy in Pakistan
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

This book explores devotional Hinduism in a modern context of high consumerism and revolutionised communications.

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

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.
