19611 Nalinaksha Dutt
Buddhist Sects in India
New Bharatiya Book Corporation; New Delhi, India; 8183151981; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
This extraordinary Book is the only authentic document of its kind. Beginning with a detailed and lucid exposition of the political background of India from Ajatasatru to Mahapadma Nanda, it goes on to trace the sources of the Second Buddhist Council, to locate with unerring exactitude the disruptive forces in the Sangha and, in the fourth chapter, to classify the sects. In the chapters that follow, the learned author deals with the Mahasanghikas, doctrines of group II-V schools. In every chapter, if not on every page, current but ill-founded assumptions are rejected and their illogicalities exposed to the reader's view. The eager student is given a panoramic view of the doctrinal developments that took place during the period concerned by this book. With irrefutable arguments and considerable ratiocinative skill does the writer conclude that the Mahasanghikas were evidently the earliest school of the Hinayanists to show a tendency towards conceiving Buddha docetically.

19614 Nalini Jameela
The Autobiography of a Sex Worker
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 8189975110; Softcover; New; 
‘Sex workers are free in four respects: we don’t have to cook for a husband; we don’t have to wash his dirty clothes; we don’t have to ask for his permission to raise our kids as we deem fit; we don’t have to run after a husband claiming rights to his property.’Fiery, outspoken and often wickedly funny, this candid account of one woman’s life as a sex worker in Kerala became a bestseller when it was first published in Malayalam. Nalini Jameela, who takes her name from both Hindu and Muslim traditions, worked as a child in the clay mines. She has been a wife, mother, successful business woman and social activist – as well as a sex worker – at different stages of her life. This is Nalini Jameela’s story, told in her inimitably honest and down- to-earth style, of her search for dignity, empowerment and freedom on her own terms. 109533

19622 Nalini Rajan (Ed.)
Covering and Explaining Conflict in Civil Society
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125054847; Hardcover; New; New; 
Covering and Explaining Conflict in Civil Society is a collection of essays that highlights issues of ethics specifically in journalism of conflict. The media takes an active interest in reporting cases of conflict as political unrest has a direct and immediate impact on people’s lives. In the first part, this volume presents four such reportages; one each from Libya, Pakistan, Turkey and Khairlanji (India). Devoted to reportage, these case studies raise an important question: How far can a reporter prescribe and opine in her reportage? The authors explain, by their own example, the need for a journalist to be aware of this question during live reportage. The second part of this volume is a critical look at the contemporary media scene in India. The authors draw our attention to the vibrant civil society that shook the administration when allegations of corruption cropped up. Citing instances of corruption within the media, the essays delineate the conflict between vested interest and ethics in journalism. In the concluding part, the authors focus on social media, as a new medium of civil society, playing an active role in the reportage of conflict—through clicks and shares. The essays here provoke the reader to ask if journalistic ethics do find a place in social media at all. Printed Pages: 216. 101852

19624 Nalini Rao (Ed.)
Sindhu-Sarasvati Civilization: New Perspectives (A Volume in Memory of Dr. Shikaripur Ranganatha Rao)
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8124607435; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
Sindhu–Sarasvati Civilization: New Perspectives. A Volume in Memory of Dr Shikaripur Ranganatha Rao is a compilation of the papers presented at the International Conference on the Sindhu–Sarasvati Civilization: A Reappraisal held in Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, during 21-22 February 2009. Here, eminent archaeologists, philologists, anthropologists and historians re-examine recent researches and existing theories upon the nature of the interrelation between the two most ancient prehistoric cultures of the South Asian subcontinent: the Indus (Sindhu or Harappan Civilization) and the Vedic Civilization. The scholars touch upon areas of consensus and contentions, with a tentatively conclusive interdisciplinary understanding about the pluralistic culture and shared identity of the two riverine cultures between 3000 and 1500 bce. They rightly swing the balance of the argument away from the archaic and now exploded Aryan Invasion Theory to the well-grounded Vedic Sarasvati milieu as the home of the Harappan Civilization. Thus it opens a new window to the cultural content of the prehistoric period of the subcontinent. The eminent personalities that have contributed include Ashok Aklujkar, Shiva G. Bajpai, Giacomo Benedetti, R.S. Bisht, Edwin Bryant, Michel Danino, Subhash Kak, Robin Bradley Kar, Nicholas Kazanas, Mark Jonathan Kenoyer, Prem Kishore Saint, Jim J. Shaffer, Diane A. Lichtenstein, Shrikant Talageri, Lavanya Vamsani as well as Sundara Adiga, S.R. Rao, and Nalini Rao. This volume is poised to evoke keen interest among archaeologists, researchers, historians and students of history and archaeology.Printed Pages: 676. 100340

19629 Nam-Kha Pel
Mind Training Like the Rays of the Sun
Paljor Publications/Library of Tibetan Works & Archives; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8185102716; Softcover; New; 
The mind training teachings are a great vehicle instruction, because they are mostly concerned with developing the awakening mind, the altruistic mind of enlightenment. They are directed primarily towards the practitioner of great capacity, and deal essentially with transforming our mental attitudes. One special feature of the mind training teachings is the advice to transform adversity into advantage. So, not only do these instructions help us open out towards other beings, but they also help us transform whatever difficulties come our way into something valuable.The Mind Training like the Rays of The Sun exemplifies Tsong-khapa's presentation of mind training. The author, Nam-kha Pel, as he mentions in his introduction, received the lineage of the explanation of the Seven Point Mind Training, which is the fundamental text here, from various sources including Je Rinpoche, his principal teacher. What is distinctive about this presentation is that he has managed to combine both the mind-training instructions as they are recorded in Geshey Che-ka-wa's text with the pattern of the Stages of the Path.Printed Pages: 185. 103617

19636 Namita Gokhale
Mountain Echoes: Reminiscences of Kumaoni Women
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 9789351941385; Softcover; New; 
‘The history of women is left to us in folklore and tradition, in faintly-remembered lullabies and the half-forgotten touch of a grandmother’s hand, in recipes, ancestral jewellery, and cautionary tales about the limits of a woman’s empowerment. Mountain Echoes describes the Kumaoni way of life through the eyes of four highly-talented and individualistic women. Their recollections mirror a social universe that no longer exists, that has been dissolved in the mainstream of modernization and urbanization, of democracy, education and emancipation. Shivani, Tare Pande, Jiya, and Shakuntala Pande were all alive and well when this book was first published in 1998. In the midst of all the rapid and unrecognizable charge that surrounds us, their stories and their memories are distilled into an even more precious evocation of times past.’ Printed Pages: 174. 108553

He then turns his attention to the musteries of the ancient symbolic languages that conveyed WISDOM inexpressible in conventional terms; and he concludes by elucidating the complexities of the pre-Buddist Bon Religion in the Context of its 12 'lores' or 'sentences'.Printed Pages: 347. 103622

19644 Namrata Goswami
Just War Theory and India’s Intervention in East Pakistan, 1971
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789383649181; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
This study offers an assessment of the Indian Intervention in East Pakistan in 1971 by locating it within the framework of Just War Theory. The Just War Theory has evolved two streams of thought in judging the use of force. These are the jus ad bellum (recourse to war) and the jus in bello (conduct in war). The jus ad bellum has six principles. They include: just cause, competent authority, right intention, force must be the last resort, proportionality of ends and probability of success. Jus in bello has two principles; namely, proportionality of means, and discrimination and non-combatant immunity. The study makes the argument that the Indian intervention in East Pakistan qualifies as one of the fit cases of humanitarian intervention when judged through the criteria of Just War Theory as it resulted in a positive humanitarian outcome for the East Pakistanis. India’s argument was that its use of force was in conformity with the humanitarian purposes of the UN Charter. The intervention not only ended the West Pakistan military operation in the East, but also restored the political rights of the Bengalis. The intervention also enabled the ten million or so Bengali refugees, who had fled from East Pakistan to India, to return home. India’s decision to intervene in East Pakistan certainly had mixed motives — it was informed by humanitarianism and was also strongly influenced by its national interests. In the end, the intervention was vindicated as the end result was a positive humanitarian outcome for the East Pakistanis. The study offers detailed discussion on the events that led to the intervention as well as undertakes an in-depth analysis of the intervention from the perspective of Just War. It provides thoughtful analysis on the recourse and conduct of India’s intervention in East Pakistan with critical lessons for humanitarian interventions in general especially on significant normative criteria like right intention, probability of success, force as last resort, proportionality of means and ends, and non-combatant immunity.Printed Pages:90. 104261

Nan Huai-Chin has provided an overview of the history and the tradition, tracing Buddhism from its inception in India to its transmission to China, and its subsequent blossoming throughout the world. He shares the basics and origins, relating the many stories surrounding the life of Shakyamuni, the founder of Buddhism, as well as the cultural and religious setting of India that fostered the initial rise of Buddhism.He discusses Buddhism in the rest of Asia, Europe, and America, and brings us to date with a discussion of Buddhism in the 20th century. An extensive appendix explains the Zen Monastic System, with an especially interesting discussion of living in the Zen Hall, Zen Master Baizhang’s enlightenment, and the twenty essential rules of the Zen community. For a solid understanding of contemporary Buddhism in its varied forms, this is an indispensable book.Printed Pages: 256. 105389

Khamoshi Ki Awaaz: Sounds of Silence (in Hindi)
Yogi Impressions Books Pvt. Ltd.; Mumbai, India; 2015; 9789382742203; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
"I had absolutely no leanings towards spirituality or spiritualism for that matter," says Nan Umrigar. "And I must admit that the space for God remained restricted to simple visits to the Zoroastrian fire temple on birthdays and auspicious occasions. But all of this changed with the death of my son Karl, a champion jockey, whose accident on the race track of Mumbai cut short a brilliant career. After Karl's death, we felt betrayed and gave up God and religion and the belief that if you were good, kind and truthful, nothing would go wrong. My grieving family questioned the unjust hand of fate, and nothing could fill the void, till the time I met some people who communicated with their loved ones from the spirit world." Soon, Nan also began communicating with her son and received messages that were to change her life forever. Karl was determined to show his mother the way to happiness. Sounds came in from the silence – conquering the great divide and proving that there is something far beyond the life we live. Sounds of Silence traces in moving detail her joy at coming in touch with Karl once again, and her gradual introduction to Meher Baba, her son’s guru in the afterlife. In Sounds of Silence Nan bares her soul, reflecting her own initial scepticism and doubts, until the weight of the evidence left her in no doubt about the reality of the messages. This is a book that challenges many concepts about life and death and particularly life after death. Originally self-published, Sounds of Silence fast became an ‘underground’ bestseller, and a tremendous source of strength for thousands who were drawn to it. This is a story of a mother’s unrelenting hope, and of a love that never dies.Printed Pages: 320. 103466

Maharsi Vedavyasa was staying in his hermitage at Badarikasrama. One day the celestial hermit Narada turned up there in the course of his usual wanton rambles. The great Vyasa welcomed him with due rites, and on his taking seat, asked: "Prophet of Gods! The soul of man seeks to get free from the hold of pleasure and pain, and craves for deliverance from the bondage of the world. But the path of Action (karma) does not lead directly to the goal. Knowledge (jnana) of course, does; nevertheless, without the leaven of Devotion it can achieve very little in substance. Devotion (bhakti) is the only way of attaining salvation; all the others have importance only insofar as they are auxiliary to it. Therefore I humbly ask you to explain to me the doctrine of Devotion." The divine Narada at once surveyed the mind of Vyasa and replied, "Great sage! You have come down on earth for the redemption of mankind. Your present enquiry has been prompted by that desire alone. By you disciple Jaimini, you have already in the Purvamimamsa discoursed upon the problem of Action, and you have yourself completed the enquiry into the problem of knowledge in the Uttaramimamsa. And now you have taken up the problem of Devotion. I am going to explain it. But its full explanation will be given by you in your Srimadbhagavatam which will be a nature of a commentary upon your Brahmasutras. My sutras will be read as such an explanation of your very short description of Devotion given in the Uttaramimamsa." Printed Pages: 64. 001231

The Samkhya Philosophy: Containing Samkhya-pravachanasutram, with the Bhasya of Vijnanabhiksu and Extracts from the Vrittisara of Mahadeva Vedantin; Tatvasamasa; Samkhyakarika; Panchasikhasutram
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 812151097X; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The Samkhya of Kapila has influenced every school of Indian philosophy. Among the treatises explaining its teachings, only two have survived intact, the rest being either in fragments or totally lost. One of these, the Samkhya-pravachana-sutram with two commentaries by Aniruddha and Vijnana-bhiksu form the body of this book, and the others Kapila-sutram, Samkhya-karika of Isvarakrisna and Panchasikha-sutram are given in appendices. The Samkhya relies on the ruler of logic for establishing the validity of its tenets. Its object is to differentiate between the soul and the non-soul. It starts with the primordial cause called prakriti or pradhana which resulted in effect, this world. It has put forward a theory of evolution to explain all objects, animate and inanimate, of this world as an infinite number of permutations and combinations of the three gunas-sattva, rajas and tamas. Its essence consists of two principles : Prakriti and Purusa. It opposes Vedic sacrifices but not the Vedas. It does not deny God but states that His existence cannot be proved. Its importance can be gauged from the fact that the Vedantasutra devotes sixty out of hundred and three aphorisms to refute its doctrines. The appendices provide all the available texts with indices for aphorisms and words. The translation, with its lucid explanation of the texts and commentaries, brings the ideas of the renowned Samkhya within reach of all. 037378

Imagining India: Ideas for the New Country
Allen Lane: An Imprint of Penguin Books; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0670081965; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Since the early 1990s, India has witnessed great social, political and cultural change. As the world’s largest democracy, its most diverse nation and one of its fastest growing economies, India is now, sixty years after Independence, universally regarded as an emerging superpower. In this sweeping and comprehensive book, one of the country’s finest and most dynamic minds examines the central ideas that have shaped modern India, and offers an original perspective on our past, present and future. Infosys co-founder Nandan Nilekani, who has been a key player in India’s growth story, points out that the country’s future rests on more than simply economic growth; it also depends on reform and innovation in all sectors of public life. Looking closely at India’s recent history, he examines the ideas and attitudes that evolved with the times and contributed to the country’s progress, as well as those that kept it shackled to old, unproductive and fundamentally undemocratic ways. He discusses how India’s early socialist policies, despite good intentions and astonishing idealism, stifled growth and weakened democracy; how, contrary to received wisdom, the country’s large and overwhelmingly young population has now become its greatest strength; how information technology is revolutionizing not just business but also governance in the everyday life of a vast majority of Indians; and how rapid urbanization is transforming both society and politics. Nilekani also gets to the heart of charged debates about caste politics, labour reform, infrastructure, higher education, the English language in India and the role of the state in a globalized world where the wealth of big corporations exceeds that of some nations. And as he does this, he asks the key questions of the future: how will India as a global power avoid the mistakes of earlier development models? Will further access to the open market continue to stimulate such extraordinary growth? And how will this growth affect—and be shaped by—the country’s young people? India is in the middle of a huge transformational process, Nilekani argues, and only a safety net of ideas—from genuinely inclusive democracy to social security, from public health to sustainable energy—can transcend political agendas and safeguard the country’s future.

Rebooting India: Realizing a Billion Aspirations
Penguin Books India Pvt. Ltd./Prakash Books; New Delhi, India; 0670087890; Hardcover; New; New; 
India is sitting on a demographic dividend, expected to become the world?s youngest country by 2020 with 64 per cent of its population, roughly 800 million people, of working age. But our country cannot become a global powerhouse unless we resolve the contradictions and bridge the gaps that distort our society. The challenge before us is to enable every one of India's 1.2 billion citizens to realize their aspirations. According to Nandan Nilekani and Viral Shah, the only way to do this is by using technology to radically reimagine government itself. Rebooting India identifies a dozen initiatives where a series of citizen-friendly, high-tech public institutions can deliver low-cost solutions to India's grand challenges. Based on their learnings from building Aadhaar, the world's largest social identity programme, the initiatives Nilekani and Shah propose would save the government a minimum of Rs 1,00,000 crore annually, about 1 per cent of India's GDP - enough to fund 200 Mangalyaan missions a year.It doesn't take 10,000 people or even a thousand, say Nilekani and Shah. All it would take is a small focused team of highly skilled, enterprising individuals, and a supportive prime minister.Printed Pages: 340. 106487

Acts of Authority/Acts of Resistance: Theater and Politics in Colonial and Postcolonial India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0195672127; First Indian Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
Despite its importance to literary and cultural texts of resistance, theater has been largely overlooked as a field of analysis in colonial and postcolonial studies. Acts of Authority/Acts of Resistance seeks to address that absence, as it uniquely views drama and performance as central to the practices of nationalism and anticolonial resistance. Nandi Bhatia argues that Indian theater was a significant force in the struggle against oppressive colonial and postcolonial structures, as it sought to undo various schemes of political and cultural power thorugh its engagement with subjects derived from mythology, istory, and available colonial models such as Shakespeare. Bhatai's attention to local histories within a postcolonial framework places performance in a global and transcultural context. Drawing connections between art and politics, between performance and everyday experience, Bhatia shows how performance often intervened in political debates and even changed the cours e o f politics. One of the few studies of Indian theater to link the aesthetics and the politics of that theater, Acts of Authority/Acts of Resistance combines in-depth archival research with close readings of dramatic texts performed at critical moments in history. Each chapter amplifies its themes against the backdrop of specific social conditions as it examines particular dramatic productions, from The Indigo Mirror to adaptations of Shakespeare plays by Indian therater companies, illustrating the role of theater in bringing nationalist, anticolonial, and gendered struggles into the public sphere.

An important forum for progressive writers and political activists in the early twentieth century, it has served to raise concerns in post-Independence India as well. Modern Indian Theatre brings together critical essays, excerpts, and theoretical and political statements that reflect upon the changing visions for theatre since the late nineteenth century. Representing a wide spectrum of perspectives including those of playwrights-directors themselves, important voices in theatre criticism and history, practice, and direction, the articles reveal the multifaceted, hybrid, and contested formations of modern Indian theatre. The writings address questions relating to theatre’s negotiation with issues of class, caste, and gender; the ways in which ‘nation’ came to be imagined at critical historical moments; the response of drama to the emergence and domination of mass media, and the proliferation and influence of Western media in India; and the role of actors and the myriad meanings of scenery, performance spaces, architecture, and language. With a perceptive Introduction by Nandi Bhatia that enables an informed understanding of theatre’s ambivalent and paradoxical relationship to ‘modernity’, this reader will engage and inform students and teachers of Indian theatre and performance studies, theatre critics, as well as general readers. 033297

19683 Nandini Bhattacharyya-Panda
Appropriation and Invention of Tradition: The East India Company and Hindu Law in Early Colonial Bengal
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0195690486; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The beginning of Anglo—Hindu jurisprudence was occasioned by decisive developments in the cultural, intellectual, and legal history of India. This book deals with the appropriation of the Dharmasastras—a powerful written tradition—and its codification, in the construction of Hindu law. It explores the significant connections between this process of formalization and the consolidation of the empire in Bengal. Bhattacharyya-Panda analyses the shifting administrative and political needs of the colonial regime as well as the perceptions and attitudes of the officials in this process of codification. Through a careful study of the compilations, Vivadarmavasetu and Vivadabhabgarnava alongside their late eighteenth-century colonial translations, she brings out the ways in which ancient textual traditions—the prescriptive, normative, and moralistic rules of the Dharmasastras—were metamorphosed into legal rules to be directly administered in courts. Investigating the intricate and dynamic links between power and knowledge in the evolution of institutions under colonial rule, this book underlines innovative ways of looking at the legal history of colonial India. 022787

Rohinton Mistry: An Introduction (Contemporary Indian Writers in English Series)
Foundation Books; New Delhi, India; 8175963115; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Contemporary Indian Writers in English (CIWE) is a series that presents critical commentaries on some of the best-known names in the genre. With the hgh visibility of Indian writing in Englihs in academic, critical, pedagogic and reader circles, there is a perceivable demand for lucid yet rigorous introductions to several of its authors and genres. Rohinton Mistry has provided some of the most sustained explorations of post-Independence Indian society through his chronicles of individual and community lives. Mistry's fiction covers many themes, from politics to Parsi community life and economic inequality to national 'events' such as wars, rigorously examining the impact of historical forces and social events on 'small' lives. Nandini Bhautoo-Dewnarain's study, a schematic introduction to Mistry's works, looks at the process of marginalization or 'Othering' in his fiction. Exploring Mistry's themes of tradition, ageing and families, Bhautoo-Dewnarain demonstrates how his fiction moves from the local to the universal. Contents Series Editor's Preface 1. Introduction 2. The Local and the Universal 3. 'Otherness' in Mistry 4. Politics in Mistry's Fiction 5. Recurring Themes 6.

19686 Nandini Gooptu
The Politics of the Urban Poor in Early Twentieth-Century India (The New Cambridge History of India)
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 0521443660; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Nandini Gooptu’s magisterial history of the labouring poor in India represents a tour-de-force. By focusing on the role of the poor in caste, religious and nationalistic politics, and on their contribution to the urban economy, the author demonstrates how they emerged as a major social factor in South Asia during the interwar period. The empirical material, concentrated on Uttar Pradesh, provides compelling insights into what it meant to be poor in the urban environment: exploitation in the workplace, the problems of finding housing, police harassment, social and political exclusion by the elite. Approaching the history of early twentieth-century Indian politics from this perspective, the author takes issue with current interpretations of sectarian and nationalist politics which argue the salience of community identity and the irrelevance of class in political analysis. This book will interest those concerned with urban social history, ethnic and sectarian conflict, nationalism, and the politics of poverty, labour and class relations. Printed Pages: 490. 008597

19691 Nandita Bhavnani
The Making of Exile: Sindhi Hindus and the Partition of India
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789384030339; Softcover; New; 
To date, most books on Partition have ignored or minimized the Sindhi Hindu experience, which was significantly different from the trials of minorities in Punjab or Bengal. The Making of Exile hopes to redress this, by turning a spotlight on the specific narratives of the Sindhi Hindu community. Post-Partition, Sindh was relatively free of the inter-communal violence witnessed in Punjab, Bengal and other parts of north India. Consequently, in the first few months of Pakistan’s early life, Sindhi Hindus did not migrate and remained the most significant minority in West Pakistan. Starting with the announcement of the Partition of India, The Making of Exile firmly traces the experiences of the community – that went from being a small but powerful minority to becoming the target of communal discrimination, practiced by both the state as well as sections of Pakistani society. This climate of communal antipathy threw into sharp relief the help and sympathy extended to Sindhi Hindus by other Pakistani Muslims, both Sindhi and muhajir. Finally, it was when they became victims of the Karachi pogrom of January 1948 that Sindhi Hindus felt compelled to migrate to India.The second segment of the book examines the resettlement of the community in India – their first brush with squalid refugee camps, their struggle to make sense of rapidly changing governmental policies and the spirit of determination and enterprise with which they rehabilitated themselves in their new homeland. Yet, not all Sindhi Hindus chose to migrate and the specific challenges of those who stayed on in Sindh, as well as the difficulties faced by Sindhi Muslims after the formation of Pakistan, have been sensitively documented in the final chapters. Weaving in a variety of narratives – diary entries and memoirs, press reportage, letters to editors and, advertisements, legends and poetry, dozens of interviews and a wealth of academic literature – Nandita Bhavnani’s The Making of Exile is one of the most comprehensive and multifaceted studies of the Sindhi experience of Partition while formation of Pakistan. 109672

19692 Nandita Haksar
The Many Faces of Kashmiri Nationalism: From the Cold War to the Present Day
Speaking Tiger Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789385288180; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Nandita Haksar’s magnum opus traces the tortured history of Kashmiri nationalism through the lives of two men: Sampat Prakash, a Kashmiri Pandit and Communist trade union leader who became active in politics during the Cold War years, and Mohammad Afzal Guru, a Kashmiri Muslim who became active in the early days of the Kashmir insurgency. The ideas and deeds of many other individuals and groups are woven into this twin account which tries to examine how Kashmiri nationalists are caught in the web of international intrigue, as they negotiate the rivalries between the old and new superpowers and also the competing nationalisms of India and Pakistan, which invariably translate into Hindu-Muslim antagonism.Both Prakash and Guru refused to give up the idea of a more inclusive Kashmir, with space in it for all faiths and nationalities. Their paths crossed at a juncture of history when both believed that their vision of Kashmir was possible. But their dream has been all but destroyed by the forces of history, leaving Prakash and his comrades alone and isolated, and leading to the hounding and execution of Guru.This nuanced, multi-layered book combines personal and public narratives, political analysis and the rare insights of an activist who led the campaign to save Mohammad Afzal Guru from the gallows. Singular in scope and focus, and spanning a period of over eight decades, from the 1930s until 2015, this is an unprecedented examination of the history of modern Kashmir.Printed Pages: 352. 103374

The Book of Vishnu
Viking; New Delhi, India; 2001; 0670049077; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 12.5 Cms x 19.5 Cms 
Vishnu, the Supreme Being, is the preserver, the protector of the good and the guardian of dharma. Seated on Adi Shesha, the many-hooded serpent, in the primeval waters, he watches over his devotees and rewards the pious. And whenever dharma is in danger, he incarnates himself on earth to rid it of evil. Beginning with an investigation of the possible non-Vedic, Dravidian origins of Vishnu, this book describes his form, aspects and attributes, and his avatars or incarnations: Matsya, the fish; Kurma, the tortoise; Varaha, the boar; Narasimha, the man-lion; Vamana, the dwarf; Parashurama; Rama; Krishna; and Kalki, the final destroyer. Combining the skill of a storyteller with the insight of a scholar, Nanditha Krishna has brought to glorious life perhaps the most powerful and revered god in the Hindu pantheon.

Madras Then Chennai Now
Lustre Press/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8174369147; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Madras Then is an extensively researched collection of pictures showcasing the city as it once was. From images documenting the construction of the artificial Madras harbour to the fateful day when the German cruiser Emden attacked Chennai (making it the only Indian city to have sustained a direct attack during the Great War). The beginnings of modern Madras culture have been well documented with alluring pictures of some of Indias earliest businessmen, industrialists, parliamentarians, actors and actors turned politicians. This book features images sourced from the private archives of the citys prominent families with some of them being published for the first time. Be it politics, sport, movies, education or even the independence struggle, Madras then features pictures and paintings of almost every event and sociocultural phenomenon that has left an indelible mark on Indian history. Awarded the title of the best metro by a magazine survey conducted in 2013, Chennai is a city of dichotomies home to some of Indias glitziest malls and retail chains and yet a city where the streets still come alive with kolam drawing competitions. The proud base of some of the countrys premier software companies but where the highly educated techie employees still enter office with vibhuti on their foreheads. A place often written off as being conservative but located in the region that hosts the largest festival of transgenders in the country. Chennai Now perfectly captures the many ironies of Chennai, featuring aerial photographs (unpublished thus far) of the city that document its changing skyline. A fascinating insight into India's most livable city. Printed Pages: 240. 037721
