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

20607 Nan Umrigar
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

Nothing definite is known regarding the author or the date of the One Hundred Aphorisms of Sandilya, "They are the work of some anonymous teacher" according to Cowell, "who ascribed his doctrine to the ancient rsi Sandilya partly because he wished to conceal its modern origin under a name belonging to Vedic times, and also because the Sandilya-vidya supplied a convenient vantage-ground for his main doctrine of the necessity of faith."

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8121508274; Second Revised Edition; Cloth; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
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.

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

20638 Nandi Bhatia
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.

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.

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

Languid Bodies Grounded Stances: The Curving Pathway of Neoclassical Odissi Dance
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789386392411; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Widely believed to be the oldest Indian dance tradition, odissi has transformed over the centuries from a sacred temple ritual to a transnational genre performed throughout the world. Building on ethnographic research in multiple locations, this book traces the evolution of odissi dance and reveals the richness, rigor, and complexity of the form as it is practiced today.Dance travels via physical bodies, and although odissi is performed the world over, the bodies performing it are defined and restricted by passports, visas, capital flows, language, and gender. Even dancers who do not (or cannot) perform outside their “local” areas must face this new globalism of odissi, and consequently compete for resources with other dancers in local, national and global arenas.Through interviews with dancers, gurus, writers, critics and presenters, and woven with critical analysis, Sikand, a dancer-choreographer herself, explores how these performers continuously define odissi dance in new and creative ways using the practice of sadhana and odissistan. As author shows, the story of odissi is ultimately a story of postcolonial India, one in which identity, nationalism, tradition, and neoliberal politics dramatically come together.Languid Bodies, Grounded Stances is relevant to scholars of dance, performance, postcolonial, and women’s and gender studies.

20648 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

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

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

This book is a study of the mysterious phenomenon of dreams. Dreams have fascinated mankind for ages. Civilisations over time and varied cultures have attempted to interpret the occurrence and meaning of dreams in different ways. Various theories have been extended from time to time to interpret this phenomenon. Dreams are generally viewed as displays of the subconscious and the unconscious which know everything of the past, the present and the future and constitute an interrelation between these. The book analyses the states of thought, the sleep cycle and occurrence of dreams, presenting viewpoints of various religious and cultural traditions like the tantric view, that of the Guiana Indians, the Korean tradition, and so on. It discusses the views of scientists and psychologists on dreams, examining the beliefs of each school -- the Freud school, Jung school, Hall school among others -- in detail. It classifies dreams in different ways and deals with aspects of contemplation, emotions, and feelings in dreams. It also takes up dream healing and numerology, explaining how one can understand the structure of a dream and its significance and use it for achieving something in life. It contains accounts of dreams experienced by famous personalities in history which were closely linked to their real lives.Printed Pages: 224. 100463

D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8124606501; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Soul-psychic Sleuthing will help us bring peace, harmony and welfare of society we live in. When it will be applied extensively, it will minimize troubles and traumas, corruption, and terrorism in the so-called civilized societies. The Hindu scriptures talked of atma-manthan (soul-churning) because it is only atma, i.e. soul which being one with the Universal Consciousness, knows the truth, which in turn can reach the best solution. Truth shall win. This enforces the application of the Soul-psychic Sleuthing. There are many techniques of the soul-psychic sleuthing. However, this book concentrates only on three of these — telepathy, clairvoyance, and psychometry. Based on Taoist and Confucius wisdom texts, and the views of the modern psychologists, this study provides in detail the methods to develop these talents. Presenting the sleuthing practised by seers and mystics, psychic readers and trackers, telepathists, consultants in their areas and others, it delves into each of the three techniques in-depth. The soul-psychic sleuthing needs reason, courage, majesty, morals, ethics, values and a tranquil mind besides the absolute purity of thought and intention.Printed Pages: 303. 100465

D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8124602581; Softcover; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The book attempts to examine those occult sciences that deal with the birth- and name-related attributes of human beings, their bodily features and their style of writing for deeper insights into personality and fate -- topics like astrology, numerology, palmistry, physiognomy, phrenology, moleosophy and graphology. In a simple language and with easy-to-understand examples and illustrations, Dr Nandlal Vanvari reveals the way in which these sciences explain aspects of human character and mind by going beyond the environmental conditioning of man and his trait of reducing everything to automatic reflex. Keeping the modern scientific perspective in mind throughout, he delves into horoscopes and effects of the planets and constellations, the significance of numbers in numerology and their association with planets, the palm lines, significance of moles located in different parts of the body and so on. The work will be useful for those associated with the sciences of the mind as well as general readers interested in occult sciences.Printed Pages: 336. 100467

20683 Narayan Chandra Bandyopadhyaya
Kautilya or An Exposition of his Social Ideal and Political Theory
Low Price Publications/D.K. Publishers Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2005; 817536386X; Hardcover; New; New; 
Next to the heroes of the Epics or the Puraana, no name is more familiar to Indians than that of Chaanakya or, as he is otherwise known, Kautilya or Vishnu-gupta. Throughout the whole of India, nÏtis or wise sayings attributed to him, are even now taught to beginners. This nÏti literature is not confined to India, but has travelled to distant countries like Ceylon, Burma Tibet, Siam, and even to Persia and Arabia, and has found place in the literatures of those countries.The very fact that this almost universal adoration is paid to his memory, shows that Kautilya was in his own days regarded as a master, whose worldly wisdom and foresight gained for him the veneration of his contemporaries. Their reverence was transmitted from one generation to another, and his real history having been forgotten, tradition surrounded his name with a halo of intellectual glow that marked him out for the spontaneous veneration of posterity, not only in his own country but in the world outside.No authentic history of this remarkable man has reached us, except references to his success in diplomacy or proficiency in the Art of Government, of which he was a redoubtable exponent in the remote past. Of this, again, we have no clear details, and even when such are obtainable, they clearly transport him from the region of history proper and make him the hero of a cycle of semi-mythical legends, of which we shall give some account later on.

A journalist sits in a café waiting for his subject?an artist called Drishya about whom he wants to write a novel. But Drishya doesn?t come. For that morning he has been visited by Maoists at his home and abducted by them? So begins Palpasa Café, the extraordinary novel by Nepali journalist Narayan Wagle, which has become a sensation in the country. Starting with the murders of the royal family, it tells the troubled story of contemporary Nepal through the eyes of a romantic artist who falls in love, wanders the war-struck countryside and dreams of creating a café named after his beloved which serves the best coffee in the country. Playful, moving and melancholic, fusing the boundaries between fiction and non fiction, Palpasa Café presents a rare picture of Nepal at war. It is one of the most important novels to come out of the country. Printed Pages: 264. 112954

20697 Narayana Guru
Darsanamala: Sri Narayana Guru Viracita
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8124601097; First Edition; Softcover; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Narayana Guru was a rishi as well as a sutrakara (the author of a sutra text) of the Age of Science. Of his Sanskrit works, the Darshanamala stands out as prominent. This work of one hundred verses considers the ultimate, non-dual Reality from ten different philosophical angles, where each angle is revealed in a chapter comprised of ten verses. Each such vision (darshana) is unique, while the non-dual vision running through each remains the same. As such, all visions can be visualized as forming a single garland (mala) united by a common string. The present commentary in Sanskrit by Professor M.H. Shastri is a free rendering of a Malayalam commentary on the Darshanamala, which was the first of its kind, and was written by Swami Vidyananda. Swami Vidyananda was a direct disciple of Narayana Guru and it was he who took down the Guru's dictation which would come to form the original poem.Printed Pages: 112. 100485

Woven into its fabric seamlessly is an analytic-synthetic examination of human consciousness, as well as a critique that indicates the essential and universal content shared by all religions. The present commentary, being intended for beginners, is simple and lucid.Printed Pages: 162. 100480

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8121512182; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This book unveils the secret world of Indian classical theatre?the fundamental principles of sublime grace, stage presence, and effective communication of emotions. It analyzes the techniques of Centripetal Effect, Centre Point, and the Introspective Illusion that influence the presentation of plays. It also analyzes the secret of grace. Bharata Muni has given an unbelievably detailed study of the facial muscles and head movements. He orders What to do but not Why? The first chapter gives the rationale behind every sloka dealing with this. The second chapter (Acting with the Face) and the third chapter (Acting with the Body)?both analyze the logic of using various parts of the body to create bhava. This book is unique since it studies the unrevealed secret of dramaturgy; no other work has ever attempted such a logical study of grace and bhava. Printed Pages: 207. 037328
