The Cultural Heritage of the Trans-Himalaya (Kinnaur)
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8124608113; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
The work is a study of the cultural heritage of the trans-Himalayan area of Himachal Pradesh, especially Kinnaur, that involves documentation of traditional institutions like temples, monasteries, Bon chos, artefacts, forts and old dialects of various ethnic groups. Relying on field studies, the volume throws light on the socio-economic and cultural life of the people of the region of Kinnaur including a study of their customs and architectural heritage. It discusses the indigenous deities (“Shu” on rathang or Shu Republic) that rule and run the administration of the ethnic communities alongside the development administration and democratic set-up from the Panchayats upwards. It deals with the universe under the various indigenous deities of cults like those of Vishnu, Shaiva and Shakti based on an actual field study of the public proceedings of the Shu Republic in 15 deshang or villages of Kinnaur and the U-Khyang and Dhang-U-Khyang, i.e. the festival of flowers and the festival of the Dakhrain, in some deshang. With reference to the deshang, it provides more than a glimpse into their administrative set-up and customary laws and traditions, and describes various architectural designs of the native residential buildings. The book emphasizes the need for necessary conservation measures for the preservation of the cultural heritage of Kinnaur. It would be useful to scholars and students concerned with the study of cultural heritage of India.Printed Pages: 421. 100547

India and ASEAN: Partners at Summit
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8187966572; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
India's relations with ASEAN have surpassed the original contours of the Look East policy. ASEAN has been used by India as a springboard to reach out into the wider Asia-Pacific region. India's early diplomatic initiatives and the various steps through which she graduated to the Summit level with ASEAN are thoroughly analysed in this book. Association with the ASEAN has enabled India to gain access to several regional and multilateral forums such as the ARF, East Asia Summit and ASEM. As a matter of fact, interaction with ASEAN has fuelled greater dynamism to India's regional multilateralism in contrast to that by SAARC. Certainly, the scope and level of India's involvement in ASEAN are greater than that with the South Asian regional forum. Summit status with ASEAN (ASEAN Plus One) has enlarged India's involvement in many sectors, not just economic and political, of the member countries. The India-ASEAN Partnership Agreement (2004) laid out a broad canvass of intersectoral engagement between the parties. The book discusses the potentialities and limitations of the cooperative areas chartered bythe Partnership.This book is an exercise, by regional specialists, in assessing the different dimensions of India-ASEAN relations. As Asia-Pacific has become the foci of great power involvement, one cannot ignore the relevance of such involvement to the India-ASEAN relations. For, dealing with ASEAN means engaging its individual member countries as well as those other powers and forums affiliated with that organisation. Hence, India's relations with the individual countries, ASEAN's affiliated bodies as well as the impact on India of great power relations, say China, with the ASEAN are broadly debated. Just as India's rapid engagement with ASEAN is a matter of concern to the regional powers, New Delhi too would have equal reason to take cognizance of the role and relevance of other powers in ASEAN.The book attempts to deviate from an economic-centric treatment of the India-ASEAN engagement Much of the existing literature overemphasized the economic content of the mutual intercourse. While trade and investment no doubt had been a core objective of the Look East drive into Southeast Asia, the strategic dimension was not a secondary objective. Geo-politics, like geo-economics, as much was the driving force behind India's Eastern drive. Hence, bilateral and regional geo-political aspects of the bourgeoning Indian involvement in the Asia-Pacific are debated at length. It is a serious attempt to view the Indian engagement with ASEAN from the perspective of academia, diplomats, policy-makers, regional and country specialists. The critical essays carried by this book offer valuable inputs to scholars interested in looking at India's Look Eastpolicy from either side of the Straits of Malacca.Printed Pages: 452. 104444

Impact of Television
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 8121204178; Hardcover; New; New; 
The radio and television regularly present national and international political information to their audience. The programes such as The News focus, election broadcasts, group discussions and features are part of the information service. But how much do our people, particularly the poor rural folks, receive the political broadcasts and telecaste? -How many realise the importance of their own participation in the national, regional or local scene? -How many of them have the basic political knowlege about the functioning of the government? -How many are aware of the political system on which a decmocracy functions? -How many have the bare minimum political background to understand the nuances of politics? These and many other such questions have no be answered if one wants to gain an insight into the impact of the mass media on political communications. This study is an attempt to assess the impact of Doordarshan on rural folks and to see now far the present political programmes on television are useful to the masses in creating political conciousness among them.Printed Pages: 208. 105754

Dalhana and his Comments on Drugs
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1982; 8121501598; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Dalhana is immortal by his single monumental work, the commentary on the Susruta Samhita known as Nibandha Samgraha. Nibandha Samgraha compiles views of a large number of authors and commentators and critically analyses them to arrive at a logical conclusion hence the title is quite meaningful. Dalhana was a versatile scholar and as such has contributed in discussing various allied topics which leads to clear understanding of the basic concepts. His outstanding contribution is picturesque interpretation of drugs mentioned in the Susruta Samhita. The commentator belongs to the early medieval period and as such gives valuable information on the cultural condition of his times. The present work is the first of its kind which inaugurates the critical study of the commentaries on the ancient texts of Indian medicine which, apart from being a faithful guide to understand the ancient compendium, presents a rich panorama of cultural data which may be helpful in proper historical understanding.

popular he becomes, he remains an enigma. This book is a glimpse of a man through pictures and not too many words. The aim is to portray, not propagate.

The reader is invited to share his triumphs and his failures, his dreams and his aspirations, not for himself but for his motherland. Because as we discovered, Modi essentially is what his country makes of him and he makes of it.... Printed Pages: 186. 107221

The Ever After of Ashwin Rao
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789384030384; Softcover; New; 
Shorlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize 2014 From internationally acclaimed New Face of Fiction author Padma Viswanathan, a stunning new work set among families of those who lost loved ones in the 1985 Air India bombing, registering the unexpected reverberations of this tragedy in the lives of its survivors. The Ever After of Ashwin Rao demonstrates that violent politics are all-too-often homegrown in North America but ignored at our peril.In 2004, almost twenty years after the fatal bombing of an Air India flight from Vancouver, two suspects finally — are on trial for the crime. Ashwin Rao, an Indian psychologist trained in Canada, comes back to do a “study of comparative grief,” interviewing people who lost loved ones in the attack. What he neglects to mention is that he, too, had family members who died on the plane. Then, to his delight and fear, he becomes embroiled in the lives of one family caught in the undertow of the tragedy, and privy to their secrets. This surprising emotional connection sparks him to confront his own losses. The Ever After of Ashwin Rao imagines the lasting emotional and political consequences of a real-life act of terror, confronting what we might learn to live with and what we can live without. 109675

Introduction to the Middle Way: Candrakirti's Madhyamakavatara with Commentary By Jamgön Mipham
Shambhala; Boston, USA; 2005; 1590300092; First Edition; Paperback; New; 6 x 9 Inches 
Introduction to the Middle Way presents an adventure into the heart of Buddhist wisdom through the Madhyamika, or "middle way," teachings, which are designed to take the ordinary intellect to the limit of its powers and then show that there is more. This book includes a verse translation of the Madhyamakavatara by the renowned seventh-century Indian master Chandrakirti, an extremely influential text of Mahayana Buddhism, followed by an exhaustive logical explanation of its meaning by the modern Tibetan master Jamgön Mipham, composed approximately twelve centuries later. Chandrakirti's work is an introduction to the Madhyamika teachings of Nagarjuna, which are themselves a systematization of the Prajnaparamita, or "Perfection of Wisdom" literature, the sutras on the crucial but elusive concept of emptiness. Chandrakirti's work has been accepted throughout Tibetan Buddhism as the highest expression of the Buddhist view on the sutra level. With Jamgön Mipham's commentary, it is a definitive presentation of the wisdom of emptiness, a central theme of Buddhist teachings. This book is a core study text for both academic students and practitioners of Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism. Printed Pages: 432. 038720

21082 Padmanabh S. Jaini
Gender & Salvation: Jaina Debates on the Spiritual Liberation of Women
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1991; 81-215-0553-2; First Indian Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
Among the religious traditions of India, only that of Jainas includes a substantial number of women in the community of religious aspirants who renounce the household life and take the vows of mendicancy. This phenomenon might suggest that Jaina women enjoy a status of religious and spiritual equality unparalleled elsewhere on the subcontinent, but even within the Jaina tradition there exists a deep schism concerning that status. In this volume, Professor Jaini brings to light heretofore untranslated texts evidencing a centuries-old debate between the two principal Jaina sects, the Digambaras and the Svetambaras, on the critical issue of whether or not women can attain spiritual liberation (moksa). The debate focuses on the question of whether total renunciation of clothing is a prerequisite to moksa. For the Digambaras, the example of total nudity set by Mahavira (599-527 B.C.), the central spiritual figure of Jainism, mandates an identical practice for all who aspire to the highest levels of religious attainment; Digambara monks therefore go about naked. For the Svetambaras, the renunciation necessary for such attainment is neither affected nor confirmed by the absence of clothes; Svetambara monks therefore go about clad in cotton robes. Both sects agree, however, that nudity is not permitted for women under any circumstances. This necessitates the conclusion that for the Digambaras a woman cannot attain moksa, while for the Svetambaras she can. From this conclusion follows a heated debate on a question of fundamental importance, namely, the manner, in which gender-based differences of biology and life experience may condition or limit an individual's ability to accomplish the ultimate religious goal. In addressing that question, the Jaina thinkers whose words are here translated demonstrate through logical analysis is a level of insight into the constraints on women and their spiritual attainments that transcends the context of the discussion and relates directly to current debates on the effect of gender in our own society.

The Jaina Path of Purification
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8120815785; Fourth Reprint; Softcover; New; 
The religious tradition of the Jainas, unique in many respects, presents a fascinating array of doctrinal and social structures that stem from the anti-vedic movements of ancient times. Drawing extensively on primary sources, Professor Jaini provides a comprehensive introduction to the Jaina experience. Beginning with the Life of Mahavira the author elucidates the essentials of Jaina cosmology and philosophy as well as of the "path of purification" through which the soul may escape from its Karmic defilements and attain eternal salvation. This path constitutes the integral element within the broader frame-work of Jaina literature, lay ritual and the socio-historical factors, which enabled Jainism to survive and prosper to the present day. In particular, the author has examined the cardinal doctrine of ahimsa (non-harming), both in its impact upon Jaina religious consciousness and as a standard in applying its sacred principles to the conduct of every day life.Printed Pages: 392. 102441

Women and Work (Readings on the Economy, Polity and Society)
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125047778; Softcover; New; 
The notion of ‘work and employment’ of ‘work and employment’ for women is complex. While economic factors predominantly determine a man’s participation in employment, the reasons why women work, or do not work, or whether they work part-time or full-time, can be diverse and are often rooted in a complex interplay of economic, cultural, social and personal factors. In India, as in most other parts of the world, fewer women participate in employment compared to men. This is the backdrop against which Women and Work analyses a wide range of issues—from what counts for ‘work’ to the economic contribution of women to how gendering of work has many significant and related consequences. The introduction talks of how oppression faced by wage-earning women is the result of patriarchal norms and capitalist relations of production. It also demonstrates how policies and programmes anchored around data based on national income accounts and/or labour force surveys seriously disadvantage women in more ways than one. Divided into four sections, the articles focus on women engaged in varied work—paddy-growers in West Bengal, beedi-rollers in Tamil Nadu, laceworkers in Andhra Pradesh and bardancers in Maharashtra—all of whom live and work in dismal conditions, and earn paltry incomes. Bringing together well-known sociologists and economists, this volume will be useful for students and scholars of sociology, economics, political science and women’s studies.Printed Pages: 408. 101748

Whatever else we forget in our lives, memories of our schooldays stay on forever. We may think of them with longing or wish that we could forget about them, but there’s no getting away from them. That crucial winning run scored in an inter-class match will act as a salve for all future failures; that prefectship denied in high school will fester despite the progress one may have made in life thereafter. Recess: The Penguin Book of Schooldays brings together over fifty moving and human accounts of school, covering a period of around 200 years, as seen through the eyes of some of the finest minds India has produced—from Lal Behari Dey and Dayananda Saraswati to Premchand and Harivansh Rai Bachchan; from André Béteille and Nirad Chaudhuri to Vikram Seth and Amit Chaudhuri; from Ismat Chughtai and Sheila Dhar to Dilip Simeon and Shuddhabrata Sengupta. The poems, essays and stories in Recess take us to the heart of the Indian school experience covering missionary, religious, residential, municipal, village and refugee schools; and reflect on the different emotions that this institution evokes: indifference, rage, fond nostalgia. While Satyajit Ray remembers participating in an event called ‘musical drawing’ and writing with ‘nibs that had to be dipped into the inkwells built into our desks’, Ved Mehta writes about learning Braille for the first time and taking part in a variety of races: Biscuit Race, Leapfrog Race. Mihir Bose reminisces about his days at St. Xavier’s High School, Bombay, and its sports master Father Fritz who predicted Sunil Gavaskar’s rise to greatness as a cricketer even as P.T. Usha shares her experiences at the Cannanore Sports Division, training for future glory while coming to terms with eating eggs and meat. Farrukh Dhondy’s delightful take on the eternal conflict between day scholars and boarders contrasts with Omprakash Valmiki’s sombre account of the obstacles he faced as an untouchable in order to become the first high school graduate of his neighbourhood. This magnificent collection casts a clear and mostly unsentimental eye over a familiar childhood battleground, making us recall and re-examine our own schooldays. Palash Krishna Mehrotra’s delightfully irreverent introduction sets the tone for what is the most comprehensive anthology on the subject to date. Subversive and honest, Recess will remain the definitive record of the Indian experience of school for years to come. Printed Pages: 376. 026652

Within the Tantra tradition, reliance upon and devotion to one's Guru are of paramount importance—without them progress on the path to Enlightenment cannot be made.
