Insights and Commentaries: South and Central Asia
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789383649631; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This volume emerged out of a search for scholarship that has studied connectivity between South and Central Asia from a variety of perspectives. Geographically and culturally, the vision that India has had of the region she referred to as Central Asia is of a space extending across China westward upto the Aral Sea and including within it Balkh, Bukhara and Samarkand. The Indian fascination with the region extends to various levels as this is the region out of which invading tribes entered India, across whose Silk Routes trade flourished and also the region where Indian culture and religion spread. Keeping this in mind the volume begins with an overview of positions from which the region has been traditionally situated from the Indian perspective as also reflections on the current scenario in terms of the geopolitical transformations of recent times. It then moves on to examine the history of the political, cultural and economic connections between the two regions from comparative perspectives. Written by specialists from Uzbekistan the articles reflect on connections that had ancient roots and shared historical experiences. The first set of articles focus on the historical linkages between the two regions. Another set looks at similar developments in the region in terms of transformations in the socio-political life of the people as also in the economy. Encounters and the necessity of security cooperation between the two regions is the focus of a third set of articles. The second part of the volume looks into certain issues that are significant in both South and Central Asia. Written with Uzbek insight they reflect on Soviet and post-Soviet state policies on a range of issues from gender and maternity policies, ethnic policies and social stratification, information policy and policies related to global organizations that have comparable relevance in the Indian context.Printed Pages: 422. 105029

KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789383649297; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This volume examines the Eurasian engagement with geographies of globalisation through an understanding of the intersection of space and place in Eurasia, Eurasian encounters with globalisation in terms of shifting spheres in politics, economics and culture, levels of integration and the intricate patterns of roads and routes. It also takes note of challenges encountered by social groups and communities in the face of globalising tendencies. The role of emerging alternatives within the region and community partnerships in Eurasia has also been addressed. Written by Eurasian scholars and others working on the region, it takes note of the formal and informal linkages between local communities and the larger global arena of which they are a part. The Eurasian context and the changing contours of Eurasia’s globalised space have been addressed in this book. The book would be of value to scholars and practitioners engaged in policy debates and area studies.Printed Pages: 396. 104251

The State in Eurasia: Performance in Local and Global Arenas
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904473; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Since the emergence of post-Soviet states in the Eurasian space there has been considerable reflection on the role that the state has played in the local and global arenas. Transformation from being part of the Soviet to independent existence has meant state involvement in the forging of new nations out of disparate identities based on the criteria of national languages, the reinterpretation of historical events, depiction of personality-centric themes, the portrayal of illustrative careers and the rhetoric of development. This volume focuses on some of the aspects of this involvement through studies of the performative role of the Central Asian states in the arena of politics, diplomacy, culture, historical memory, and their interaction within the Eurasian space. It reflects on ways in which the state reacts to society and how discourses in the field of economy, society and culture dovetail with or diverge from the political discourse about state-building.Relations between formal institutions and informal structures; emerging conceptions of democracy in the context of the Tulip Revolution in Kyrgyzstan and the disruptive events in western Kazakhstan during the twentieth anniversary of the republics independence; the nature of bilateral and multilateral alignments among regional and interregional actors are some of the aspects through which the role of the state has been examined by the authors. The volume seeks to address the question of how the state acts as an agent of influence and control not just on performative traditions but also in the creation of a single community as the basis for a nation.Printed Pages: 300. 104321

Learn Chinese Through English
Goodwill Publishing House; New Delhi, India; 8172451091; Softcover; New; 
(LEARN CHINESE THROUGH ENGLISH) is intended to be an intensive course book for beginners who have just started learning Chinese. This book lays emphasis on improving the ability of the learner to use Chinese for conversation.In recent years, the opportunities for business and educational trips to China have increased rapidly. Without some knowledge of the Chinese language, however, you will be either confined to your hotels and offices where English is spoken or totally dependent on the services of an interpreter.This book provides you the sentence pattern you will most often need and the vocabulary with which you can create new sentences. I have used not only easy-to-understand language, but also simple grammar. By recognizing the grammatical patterns each time they reappear, you will soon be able to use them on your own.In all the chapters, the English sentence is followed by its pronunciation in Chinese, known as pinyin which is the official transliteration of Chinese characters. This is followed by Chinese characters, known as Hanzi. The Hanzi used in this book are the simplified characters of China. Meaning of each Chinese character is given under it in English. If you have difficulty in pronouncing a Chinese word or phrase, you can point to the accompanying Hanzi and ask the Chinese with whom you wish to communicate to read it.In pinyin, I have given tones as they are listed in. the dictionary. In the introduction, I have explained how tone of some words depend on the tone of the word following; so while speaking Chinese, do keep in mind this change in tones.The key to learning a new language is repetition. Begin by practising a few simple phrases and then carry on with difficult ones. I am very grateful to Mr. Wushan whose expertise in writing pinyin was a great help to me. I am very-much indebted to - husband Surinder, who is also in the field Chinese language, for valuable suggestions. Printed Pages: 304. 108083

The Bakkarwals of Jammu and Kashmir: Navgating Through Nomadism
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8189738488; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 29 x 26 Cm 
Sedentary patterns of living are often termed as ‘civilized’, yet, in semi-arid regions, pastoral nomadism remains an efficient subsistence-base. While seven per cent of India is nomadic, a majority have little access to development programmes. Research across continents reveals that the success of such initiatives among nomads is contingent upon their sensitivity to a mobile lifestyle. The pastoral Bakkarwals of Jammu and Kashmir herd goat and sheep and are a subset of the buffalo-herding Gujjars of the State. They migrate and return annually from the hills of the Jammu-Poonch region through the insurgency-riddled Pir Panjal into the Valley, to beyond the tree line atop the highland pastures of the Greater Himalayas. The Bakkarwals of Jammu and Kashmir: Navigating through Nomadism presents this almost entirely nomadic community, through an ethnography of their social association, religion, language, folklore and material culture, normative beliefs and indigenous knowledge, the contexts for development, gender relations, the nature of power and reciprocity, as well as the indices of change, with the aim to sensitize the reader to the precariousness of their lives, as also to their remarkable vitality and grace.

Gender, Space and Resistance: Women and Theatre in India
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8124606927; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This book explores the presence and contribution of women to the recorded history of Indian theatre. It provides a platform to raise, discuss and debate issues, aesthetics and techniques connected with the Indian theatre in the backdrop of political, social and moral values of women in theatre. An attempt to fill up the vacuum of scholarly literature on the role of women in theatre, this book expects to create enough academic value and interest. Its content unearths the dynamics of gender in the history of theatre. It extensively deals with the theoretical and practical aspects of women's theatre. This anthology also addresses the various social issues associated with gender inequality through essays, play-texts and interviews. In a similar vein, it delves deep into the relationship among theatre, public/private sphere and gender. This work purports to address a variety of needs of feminist researchers and laymen who are not conversant with the contribution of women to theatre and its obvious political and transformative intent. This collection also intends to see how the theatrical space could unsettle the gendered binaries regulating women's presence in public space, and proposes to see why and how relevant feminist politics is in re-imagining a vibrant and inclusive concept of gender fairness and justice in contemporary India. It extends high referral value for researchers, students and even laymen with interest in the role of women in theatre.Printed Pages: 673. 100495

For the Record: On Sexuality and the Colonial Archive in India
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8125040250; First Indian Edition; Paperback; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
For the Record considers the relationship between sexuality and the colonial archive by posing the following questions: Why does sexuality (still) seek its truth in the historical archive? What are the spatial and temporal logics that compel such a return? And conversely, what kind of “archive” does such a recuperative hermeneutics produce? Rather than render sexuality’s relationship to the colonial archive through the preferred lens of historical invisibility (which would presume that there is something about sexuality that is lost or silent and needs to “come out”), Arondekar engages sexuality’s recursive traces within the colonial archive against and through our very desire for access. The logic and the interpretive resources of this book arise out of two entangled and minoritized historiographies: one in South Asian studies and the other in queer/sexuality studies. Focusing on late colonial India, Arondekar examines the spectacularization of sexuality in anthropology, law, literature, and pornography from 1843–1920. By turning to materials and/or locations that are familiar to most scholars of queer and subaltern studies, Arondekar considers sexuality at the centre of the colonial archive, rather than at its margins.

Maya Running
Puffin; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0143334921; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Mayasri Mukherjee is a bright girl with an irrepressible imagination, born in India and raised in a Canadian town. She loves the land of maple leaf and snow, but sometimes she is not sure where she belongs. The only brown-skinned teenager in her school, she cannot speak Bengali or pirouette to save her life. Just as Maya captivates the gorgeous Jamie Klassen, her beautiful cousin Pinky arrives from India. Her long shiny hair, sandalwood fragrance and magical dancing skills bewitch Maya's friends. Woe of woes, Jamie falls for Pinky too. Pinky has brought a little statue of Ganesh, and Maya pleads with the Remover of Obstacles to get rid of all barriers to her happiness, a plea that backfires in hilarious and painful ways. In this delightful debut, Anjali Banerjee captures the dreams and turmoil of a teenager searching for her identity, her family and her own special culture. Printed Pages: 200. 010564

Images of Women in the Folk Songs of Garhwal Himalayas
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8170228964; Hardcover; New; New; 
Leela sings while cutting grass on the hill-side. Her voice reverberates in akasha, unifying her song with all the elements. She expresses her lived experience to a friend near by, who responds to her song with a few lines. This creative dialogue is the song of individual experience, of participation, It brings richness and meaning to the lives of the women of Garhwal Himalayas. This book reiterates the significance of looking at the lived experience of communities with the nation of empathy, participation and wholeness, Wholeness means in that all parts belong together, that they partake in each other, Understanding culture is more that what the words imply. It involves an in-dwelling, listening to the hum behind the spoken word. Songs are to be understood as a matter of actual experience, of participation and of keen observation. All this means that a new form of perception, a different spiral of understanding other then that of objectivity is required. This approach is radically different from the normal linear methodologies of social science research which tend to fragment disciplines and treat human beings as passive objects. The way the songs have been looked at in this book provides very significant answers in terms of the new directions which need to be taken into account wherever human communities are involved. The validity of this approach is especially relevant for India because here cultural traditions are largely transmitted by oral means. This is the core-methodology of this book and one of its major contributions in order to set up clear guidelines for an alternate paradigm in anthropological field research.

Women Survivors of Violence: Genesis and Growth of a State Support System
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8125059156; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
In the 1980s, a field action project, which later developed into a socio-legal service to address Violence against Women (VAW), was initiated and developed by an academic institute of social work in strategic partnership with the police in Mumbai and Maharashtra. This service, termed the ‘Special Cells’, worked in tandem with the police force, and in the past three decades, has been replicated in eight states across India. Women Survivors of Violence is a first-person account of the evolution of the Special Cells. In the mid-1980s, the author was the first social worker of the TISS-initiated ‘field action project’—working on the issue of violence against women from within the police system. The result was the introduction of Special Cells in the police system. This narrative traces the 29-year-old journey of this institution, and provides a deeply personal account of the effectiveness of a multi-agency coordinated response to VAW, in the form of a partnership between an academic institute, the police system, and the violated woman. This books adds to the limited literature available in India on the processes and lessons learnt from developing and implementing an intervention on VAW. It details the processes of understanding the violated woman and the police; setting up of systems to work with women from within the police system; and engaging with the state as the instrument that can secure the right of women to a safe and secure life. It critically reflects on the learnings of the Special Cells from the women, police, the state, law, and social work practices, in the context of the ongoing struggles to respond to violence against women. An informative and deeply important account, this book will be of interest to students and educators in departments of Social Work and Women’s Studies, government personnel, trainers in police academies, and administrators. Those interested in women’s issues will also find it fascinating.Printed Pages: 219 with b/w illustrations. 102271

Cinema of Enchantment: Perso-Arabic Genealogies of the Hindi Masala Film
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2015; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 22 Cm 
A fascinating account of the theatrical beginnings of Bollywood and the Indo-Islamic storytelling traditions of the subcontinent, the volume looks at how Islamicate cultures have richly informed and structured mainstream Hindi cinema. It tells us how it was Urdu which provided the language of quintessential romance, passion and poetry for it. Acknowledging the central contribution of Hindu mythology, narrative visual arts and epics on storytelling in film, the volume isolates Bollywood’s generic debt to the Perso-Arabic legacies of tilism or enchantment, qissa and dastan, which have been marginalised in the construction of popular Hindi cinema as national cinema. It looks at the structure and narrative form of Orientalist genres of the Silent period, stunt films, costume dramas, and their continuity in the ‘masala’ film of the 1960s and 1970s. As opposed to the lens of fantasy through which the dream-world of Hindi cinema has been traditionally perceived, it suggests that tilism may provide a framework for examining its magical and enchanting universe. The influence of Urdu writers, pre- and post Partition, Urdu poetry and Sufism on film scripts, dialogue and music ensured that the language of Firdausi, Ghalib and Zafar lived on in popular imagination. Bollywood, thus, provided one of the last havens for preserving and performing India’s famed syncretic ‘Ganga-Jamuni tehzeeb’ wherein Hindi and Urdu are not two but are deeply implicated in one another-even as it disappeared from other public spaces.Printed Pages: 260. 102273

Indian Diaspora in the United States: Brain Drain or Gain?
Orient BlackSwan; Hyderabad, India; 2011; 8125042660; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Indian Diaspora in the United States looks at the topic of brain drain from a new lens. It uses Indian migration to the United States as a case study. Its approach is different from the conventional way of looking at international migration from India. The book includes discussions on “brain gain” and “brain circulation” for source countries. Recipient-countries not only benefit in the form of remittances, investments and savings but also by networking and bringing ideas and technology into India. By achieving success in and visibility in host countries, the diaspora community further influences economic and political benefits for their home countries. This groundbreaking work brings economic and political issues to the dimension of migration and concerns over brain drain. With its rigorous, network approach, this book is a valuable contribution to the studies of Indian diaspora, labour, and globalization. Printed Pages: 264. 036605

In this book, author have consistently discussed and explained the influence of religion in political development from divine power to public power. It is no doubt that religion has given our society much of its character and coherence, permeating human behaviour in various ways either directly or indirectly. It is undeviable that the rise of modern political system was strongly influenced by the Jewish Christian religious heritage. Despite the great secularising process that has taken place during the last four centuries, belief in God has continued to play a relevant role in political ideas. Printed Pages: 176. 110059

Black Tongue
IndiaInk/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8186939326; Softcover; New; 
Set in contemporary Communist-ruled West Bengal, Black Tongue explores the story of a young servant girl and her employer whom destiny brings together in an intricate dance of love and hate. Street-smart and sassy, 16-year-old Maya has aspirations beyond her means. Then, she disappears. Amrita, Maya's employer and a social worker, is charged with her death. The ubiquitous Party also begins to investigate the murder, a murder that turns out to be not quite what it seems. Maya believes that her black tongue has wrecked Amrita's beautiful world. Hate simmers in her. Amrita, in a bid to save herself, turns to ex-lover Paresh, the minister's right-hand man. Maya's brother, Naren, a cadre worker, sees an opportunity to make a fast buck in her disappearance. Is this part of a sinister, bigger plan? Or are they shielding somebody? Through the novel, Anjana Basu, explores the contradictions that connect middle-class Kolkata and its urban slums with rural West Bengal. As the events unfold, the story looks askance at a strange, but recurrent socio-political phenomenon typical of West Bengal: pre-modern superstition existing in the interstices of an enlightened political apparatus.

Seed of Genius: Nurture Your Natural Multiple Intelligences
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789381626740; Softcover; New; 
Each person is born with the potential to be whatever they want to be. As a person grows, their mental faculties open up, they learn to use their intelligence in whatever task they are doing.Intelligence implies the ability to understand a concept, deconstruct, analyze and re imagine it. It is the ability to use all the mental faculties well. And, Intelligence is not fixed. If a person gets a low score in an IQ test, they can improve it the next time they take the test through practice. Thus, intelligence can be improved, it is not something that is allotted in a set quantity to each person.The author says that to function at an optimal level, to use their intelligence fully, a person first has to know himself. They have to realize their own strengths and weaknesses, what they are interested in and so on. Each person has particular areas where they are strong, and areas where they do not do so well. Once a person realizes their own strength, they should concentrate on developing it, not get obsessed and side-tracked by their weaknesses.This book aims to take people through the steps to identifying their own potential and realizing it. To use their natural abilities to the full extent. The book has been arranged to logically proceed from realization to growth. The author draws an analogy between how the book has been arranged to the stages in boarding a flight. The first part is waiting in the departure lounge. In this section, the author introduces the basic ideas. He begins with the chapters, Our Origin and Arise Awake. The next stage is the preparation for take off. Here the author discusses the concept of intelligence, the Intelligence Quotient tests and the futility of trying to measure actual intelligence. The chapters in this section are Interesting Intelligence, and Measuring Methods.The next stage is the actual flying. This is the core of the book, where the reader begins to really understand the concept of intelligence. The chapters in this part are Plural Potential, Genetic Genius and Assessing Access. After this comes the post flight process. Here, the author discusses the ways to let the seed grow, to nurture intelligence, like a seed is nurtured by a combination of soil, water, fertilizers, and sunlight. In this section he focuses on topics like Brain Basics, Mind Matters and Future Focus.Seed Of Genius: Nurture Your Natural Multiple Intelligences teaches its readers ways in which to awaken to their own potential, and how to realize that potential through the use of their various mental faculties. The iQuiz and iTry sections in the book lets the readers assess their own intelligence and become aware of what they are capable of. 109579

A Carnival of Parting: The Tales of King Bharthari and King Gopi Chand as Sung and Told By Madhu Natisar of Ghatiyali, Rajasthan
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1993; 8121506220; First Indian Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
Madhu Natisar Nath is a farmer with no formal schooling. Here is also a singer, a musician, and a storyteller. At the center of present work are Madhu Nath's oral performances of two linked tales about the legendary Indian kings, Bharthari of Ujjain and Gopi Chand of Bengal. Both characters, while still in their prime, leave thrones and families to be initiated as yogis-a process rich in adventure and melodrama, one that offers unique insights into popular Hinduism's view of world renunciation. Authoress presents these living oral epic traditions as flowing narratives, transmitting to Western readers the interactive dimensions, the moods, and the pleasures of a village bard's performance. Three introductory chapters and an interpretive afterword, together with an appendix on the bard's language by David Magier, supply the work with a richly detailed ethnographic, historical and cultural backdrop. Authoress gives a frank and engaging portrayal of the bard Madhu Nath and her work with him. She examines the Nath caste and their oral epic traditions as an important stream within North Indian Hinduism, showing how Madhu Nath's versions of Bharthari's and Gopi Chand's well-known tales surface as distinctive moments within complex legendary and historical currents. While embellished with miraculous displays of magical powers and evocative of profound spiritual dedication, the tales translated here are most profoundly concerned, authoress argues with human rather than divine realities. In a compelling afterword, she highlights the thematic emphases on politics, love, and death. Although both narratives frequently invoke as ultimate authority the causal black hole of fate, they in no way acquiesce to fatalism. Madhu Nath's vital colloquial telling of Bharthari's and Gopi Chand's stories depict renunciation as inevitable and interpersonal attachments as doomed, yet celebrates human existence as a "carnival of parting."

Rules for Nuns According to the Dharmaguptakavinaya (Buddhist Tradition Series), 3 Vols
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8120818008; Second Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
The purpose of this work is, on the one hand,to give an annotated English translation of the Chinese version of the bhiksunivibhanga of the Dharma-guptakavinaya, and on the other hand to study the life and the career of Buddhist nun as described in the vinaya literature. This vinaya laid the foundation of Chinese monastic life. As the Dharmaguptakavinaya came into being in symbiosis with other vinaya traditions, a comparison is made with these other traditions on important issues. Given the fact that the Dharmaguptakavinaya is the most important vinaya in China and that it lays the foundation of the monastic life, the author has chosen to translate and to study the discipline for nuns of this vinaya. One should, however, always keep in mind that the Dharmaguptakavinaya came into being in symbiosis with other vinaya traditions, often only transmitted in Chinese. In the Introduction, the place of the Dharmaguptaka tradition, the career of a Buddhist nun and the rules of discipline are discussed. The notes to the English translation provide relevant references to technical terms and to parallel passages from the discipline for monks as well as from other vinaya traditions. The work is supplemented with indexes, glossaries and a concordance of the rules for nuns and monks of the Dharmaguptaka tradition.Printed Pages: 1225 102404

Chinese Sculpture: A Great Tradition
Serindia Publications; Chicago, USA; 2007; 1932476288; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 22 x 27.5 Cm 
Archaeological discoveries over the last fifty years have revolutionised knowledge about Chinese sculpture, revealing the length and strength of a hitherto unsuspected tradition stretching back to prehistoric times. This tradition was concerned with the powers of statuary. Unwritten, it was based on beliefs shared by all classes on the nature of the cosmos, the importance of maintaining contact with the ancestors and the idea that images contain power to influence events in the seen and unseen worlds. With many previously unpublished photographs, the book traces the history of Chinese sculpture through the imperial period. By outlining the principles which underlie all forms of statuary, regardless of size and material, the text aims to elucidate the extent to which sculpture in China has been adapted to serve the political, practical and spiritual needs of its rulers through two thousand years. Sculptures were a vital part of palace, tomb, temple or other complexes intended to further harmony between worldly society and the cosmos. Printed Pages: 560 with 361 colour illustrations. 018752

The Ethnographer's Eye: Ways of Seeing in Anthropology
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2002; 0521773105; Reprint; Hard Cover; Brand New; 16 Cms x 24 Cms 
Grimshaw’s exploration of the role of vision within modern anthropology engages with current debates about ocularcentism, investigating the relationship between vision and knowledge in ethnographic enquiry. Using John Berger’s notion of ‘ways of seeing’, the author argues that vision operates differently as a technique and theory of knowledge within the discipline. In the first part of the book she examines contrasting visions at work in the so-called classical British school, reassessing the legacy of Rivers, Malinowski and Radcliffe-Brown through the lens of early modern art and cinema. In the second part of the book, the changing relationship between vision and knowledge is explored through the anthropology of Jean Rouch, David and Judith MacDougall, and Melissa Llewelyn-Davies. Vision is foregrounded in the work of these contemporary ethnographers, focusing more general questions about technique and epistemology whether image-based media are used or not in ethnographic enquiry. Contents Part I. Visualizing Anthropology: The Modernist Moment and After, 1895–1945: 1. Anxious visions: rivers, cubism and anthropological modernism; 2. The innocent eye: Flaherty, Malinowski and the romantic quest; 3. The light of reason: Grierson, Radcliffe-Brown and the Enlightenment project; Part II.

This book presents an array of contexts that operated in Shakespeare's plays. These include ideas about kingship and authority; gender roles; prejudices, antipathies and stereotypes regarding national, racial, gender or ethnic identities; views about the world outside England, or about the classical world; and the world of the theatre, among many others. The book analyses how these contexts are reflected, examined, interrogated and sometimes subverted, in his plays. Printed Pages: 256. 110987

Kalamkari Temple Hangings
Mapin Publishing; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789385360046; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Victoria and Albert Museum in London has the world’s most important collection of 19th-century temple hangings from South India. Commissioned by Hindu temples and monasteries (maths), and by individuals for religious use, the hangings were produced in the kalamkari style of hand drawing, mordant-dyeing and painting. Striking in artistry, and imposing in size, these temple hangings represent a complex technique that reached its highest expression in southern India.The majority of these pieces are from coastal Andhra Pradesh or Tamil Nadu, with one extraordinary Ramayana hanging from Sri Lanka. All of them date from the 19th century except for one astonishing 20th-century hanging from Srikalahasti, depicting the life of Christ in the traditional Hindu kalamkari style. A first of its kind, this volume presents a fully illustrated compilation of nineteen pieces from the V&A collection, accompanied by translations of their inscriptions, and a summary of the story depicted therein. The ‘frame-by-frame’ analyses of these narratives yield a fascinating range of stories, from versions of the Ramayana to local epics. Bringing this previously unpublished collection together, the book provides us with a new look at the remarkable variety of regional artistic traditions, and allows us to celebrate the master craftsmen whose names are now known to us.

Reverse Glass Painting In India
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789385285349; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Reverse Glass Painting is a fascinating yet comparatively unknown facet of Indian art that flourished in the mid-19th century. Created by Chinese and Indian artists, these 'exotic' paintings in luminous colours were much favoured by royal patrons, and also by prosperous landowners and city merchants in colonial India. The themes ranged from portraits of rulers, their families, nobles, dancers and courtesans, to landscapes and a wide variety of religious subjects drawn from the Puranas and the Epics. Many of the portraits depict western style settings and offer a charming insight into the tastes and lifestyle of the western-educated urban elite in mid-19th and early 20th century India. Over a 100 colour images highlight the rare gems of reverse glass painting from numerous private collections in India. Printed Pages: 252. 112629

The Intimate Other: Love Divine in Indic Religions
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8125028013; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
The Intimate Other explores the theme of the devotional element in Indic Religions not only in Hinduism in which bhakti has become the dominant form, but also in Budhism, Jainism, Sikhism and Islam. The essays by scholars of international repute, show the strength of this devotion to the divine as a living and powerful source of value, aesthetic imagination, creativity and well-being . They also analyse the sometimes divergent interests of scholar and devotee, problematising devotion and exposing its historical development as complex, contested and 'political'. Of particular interest are the chapters on the Jain and Buddhist traditions where the existence of devotion has often been doubted or denied. Contributors investigate widely raging topics: these include an analysis of bhakti within the Sanskrit epics; a text-historical approach to Valmiki; Kabir's authorship of the poems attributed to him; contemporary attitudes to devotion to the Ganga: devotion within a syncretistic Jain movement, in Theravada Budhism, subcontinental Sufi Islam, young Sikhs in Britain and in the shared musical and poetic traditions of Hindus, Sikhs and Muslims. The volume ends with a sensitive exploration of the devotional love that overpowers death within the Hindus, sikhs and Muslims. The volume ends with a sensitive exploration of the devotional love that overpowers death within the Hindu bhakti context. Together they demonstrate vividly just how passionate love for the intimate other penetrates and inspires so many aspects of the religious culture of South Asia. Printed Pages: 436. 031534

Past Perfect: Letters to Aditi
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789383260263; Softcover; New; 
Cricketer Anna Varughese was only four when she was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, a serious chronic abdominal disease. From then on, her life was dominated by severe food restrictions, doctors and hospitals. Despite all that, encouraged by her incredibly strong mother, Anna never gave up. She went on to do her MBA, marry her college mate and best friend TC and have a daughter, Aditi. When Anna was thirty one came a grim verdict, her liver was so badly damaged that a transplant was her only hope of survival. By 2002, Anna, who had spent nine months in a small London apartment with her mother, waiting for a donor, had almost given up hope. It was then that Past Perfect took shape. If she couldnt live to tell Aditi the tale, Anna was determined that her daughter would still read her story that of a wonderful past and an ordinary but lovely life. Here is that captivating story, full of humour and laughter, of a Kerala childhood packed with family, cousins playing ever ending games, gatherings around tables groaning with food and celebrations of weddings, festivals and ordinary days with equal gusto. Anna found her donor in September 2002. Her refusal to let the disease define her or destroy her love for life, will bring hope to anyone faced with a life threatening condition and to their families who fight the battle with them. 109608

Goa: Paradise-on-Sea
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8174362843; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 11 x 8.5 Inches 
If you were to drop a bomb on Goa, it would land either on a cross or on a tavern - so goes the saying. Goa: Paradise on Sea faithfully represents it. The book is strongly marked by the Goan passion for life, which is on song the whole of 365 days. The ubiquitous singing, the famed beaches, the inevitable tot of wicked feni, the typical Goan-Portuguese cuisine do not leave space for much seriousness. Goa talks of the small state, liberated from 450 years of colonial rule in 1947, which is also heir to a unique inter-religious culture. Christian altars are decorated with Hindu motifs; Hindus, Christians and Muslims celebrate Carnival and Shimogi (the Goan festival of lights). Half the female population prefers the sari; others are comfortable in trousers and Western dresses. All, however, bow to the sweet spirit of St. Francis Xavier, the patron saint of Goa. Religious edifices unerringly index the glorious heights to which architecture aspires in Goa. Well-appointed homes and elegant mannerisms attest to its people’s warmth. Goa imbibes everything of the Goan spirit and is a heady read. Printed Pages: 79 with colour illustrations. 000642

Kampil: Archaeological Study of a Site in the Ancient Kingdom of Panchala
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8121512360; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Kampil, located in the South Panchala region where the bases of the culture of the Indian civilization were developed, very probably played a role in that process. Cunningham realised, back in the nineteenth century, the archaeological potential of the site and identified Kampil with Kampilya. But the archaeological excavations will be the only way of knowing whether the name of Kampil was Kampilya, as Cunningham maintained, or whether the identity was only temporary, as the authors believe, or alternatively whether Kampil had nothing in common with the ancient capital. In the meantime, despite the predictable difficulties (the present built-up area occupies a large part of the mound), there are sufficient reasons to carry on in-depth researches about the site. The book brings together the indications obtained from Kampil, all the known information referring to the site and some hypotheses the authors have formulated. It is not possible to write about Kampil without widening the discussion to Panchala, one of the best-know protohistoric mahajanapadas, probably involved in Kampilya events. Anyone looking for definitive and archaeologically certain elements in the book will be disappointed because the intention here is to transmit, above all, ideas and stimuli for further archaeological research.

The Making of Navi Mumbai
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8125026002; Softcover; New; 
This book uses the case of the Navi Mumbai urban project to bring out many of the problems inherent in the urbanisation process and in the nature of urban policy-making in post-colonial India. It illustrates how even a new city, built from scratch, is riddled with social and economic contradictions---well-planned and serviced areas coexisting with slums and shanties. The work questions some of the accepted solutions to urban policy especially with regard to urban land and distribution of civic infrastructure. Navi Mumbai is being used as a model for building new towns outside other cities in India. This detailed case study of Navi Mumbai reveals the strengths and weaknesses of this model of urbanisation and indicates the policy directions that can obliterate the duality that has characterised the Indian city all through the twentieth century.Printed Pages: 312. 101844

Despite the daunting barriers of geography and language that separate them, Buddhism and contemporary feminism have much to say to each other. Buddhist practices such as mindfulness (in which calm centering and keen awareness of change coexist) and compassion (in which the self is recognized as both powerful in itself and interdependently connected with all others) can be important resources for contemporary women, while feminism can expand the traditional horizons of Buddhist concerns to include social, historical, and psychological issues. The image and ritual of the Great Bliss Queen, an important Buddhist figure of enlightenment, from the unifying theme of the book, modeling the practices and theory that can assist each of us being at one with ourselves and fully engaged with others.Printed Pages: 325. 102389
