21201 Nishant Tiwary
Celebrating Bihar: The Heritage of Nalanda
Oxford University Press; 2013; 0198098839; Hardcover; New; New; 
Highlighting the legacy of Nalanda, the home of the world's first residential university (c. AD 450), this book celebrates the state of Bihar that completed its centenary in 2012. It narrates the story of the confluence of many belief systems- Buddhism, Jainism, Sufism, and Hinduism-and showcases the heritage of Nalanda. Affording insights into archaeological sites, such as the ruins of Nalanda University, Ashokan stupas at Girijak, the Cyclopean walls, the Swarna Bhandar, the Maniyar Math, Jarasandh ka Akhada [Banquet Hall of King Jarasandh], King Bimbisara's Jail, Teladhaka monastery, and the antiquities found in the village Jiar among others, the work provides a comprehensive picture of Nalanda and its surroundings. With around 160 colour photographs melding into one another, the volume creates a rare visual continuity perhaps experienced only in motion pictures.

21206 Nissim Ezekiel
Collected Poems
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195672496; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
The period in modern Hindi literature known as 'Chayavad' marked the first blossoming of poetry in the language which, for its originality, depth, and technical resourcefulness, still remains unsurpassed. This anthology provides a sampling of the works of four major poets of this revival--Jayshankar Prasad, Suryakant Tripathi 'Nirala', Sumitranandan Pant, and Mahadevi Varma. Like the Romantic age in the West, Chayavad was marked with elements of symbolism and mysticism. Upa nishadic teachings, the English Romantic poets, the French Symbolists, Rabindranath Tagore, Sanskrit aesthetics--all influenced this genre. In Chayavad poetry, modern Hindi attained an incontestable brilliance and elegance of expression. Chayavad poets are known outside India by the few available translations of their elegant, yet often baffling, short lyrics. This unique volume brings together translations of a few significant long poems--Prasad's Amsu (a poem of philosophical import) and Nirala's Ram ki Shakti-Puja (a short epic on the theme of war). Also included is a selection of the more typical short lyrics by all four poets, many of them previously untranslated. Printed Pages: 144. 028429

21207 Nita Mathur
Cultural Rhythms in Emotions, Narratives and Dance
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8121509939; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Art is a vital component of culture in a generic sense and of being cultured in a specific sense. This book identifies the interplay between dance and lifestyle in the specific context of Tamil Brahmin culture. It sets out an agenda which raises fundamental issues concerning cultural construction of identity in the matrix of symbolic configurations, experience and expression of emotions, rituals, dance and life philosophy. The rhythms of Tamil Brahmin culture integrate creativity, self-expression and collective identity in various processes of life at one level and merge with the universal rhythm of cosmic order at the other. The concern is with appreciating cultural rhythms that run as an undercurrent throughout the book. The major contribution of this work is in evolving multidisciplinary research methodologies and models for the study of art in living and art of living in a culture. Printed Pages: 232 with 22 4-colour illustrations, 55 line drawings and 2 maps. 000358

Wisdom Tree; New Delhi, India; 818328258X; Softcover; New;

21215 Nitin J. Vyas
A Dialogue with Faiths and Flora
Bharatiya Vidya Prakashan; Delhi, India; 2000; Softcover; New; 
It is indeed a fact, inspite of a great development in Science and technology, the deep attitude for Religion in man exists as a constant historical continuity all over the world. This unique trait is witnessed in the deeper layers of human mind beyond all spatiotcmporal and relative prejudices. The call for all religions presently consists in critical and rational guarding against closed extremity and opaqueness to fresh ideas and changes. They must remain constantly conscious and adequately prepared to squarely meet the stupendous complexities of the developing world. Authoritarianism and converting impositions, cloistered subjectivity and blind fanaticism possess no place in this nobler pursuit of a new vision. This critical spiritual reawakening pre-supposes a total acceptance of all religious quest and its value to the mankind. The piquant irony, however, that rests with us is that there is a crisis of faith in the religions of the world on one hand and too much emphasis on science and technology as the panacea for all human solutions on the other hand. As a result, humanity finds itself at crossroads everywhere. What is patent, however, is A Clear hope for future still existing with the way of all faiths. For unity and harmony, order and oneness are considered as organic and intrinsic factors of this great world. The world of faiths still holds this potency in directing man to the creative and constructive existence. Hence there has to be a constant inquiry and dialogue with all faiths in Context of this totality of all existence. 103765

Self Calling is an assortment of Self-Reminder meditatlons in which Nitin Ram’s spontaneous insights relentlessly destroy all concepts of ‘Self’, pointing you towards the wordless ‘Nothingness’, a state beyond any need.Carrying on the legacy of his Gurus, Sri Osho and Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, Nitin’s inspired words of Wisdom and Love, flrst engulf and then gulp what you think is ‘You’.You may discover that these intention-less pointers not only bestow deep reflection but also have a way of circumventing the mind and striking deep into the heart . . . dropping ‘you’ into the ever-existing Natural state.These pointers will help shed all misunderstandings about ‘Enlightenment’ being personal for the ‘assumed’ personality trying to seek it. “The ‘seeking entity’ that is trying to recognise the illusion,” Nitin points out, “is the Mother of All Illusions!”With sparkling wit and ripened wisdom Nitin uses what he calls ‘the double-edged sword of Love and Truth, compassionately edging the reader to topple beyond the Known. “To know by BEING is direct knowledge, sans knower. FULL STOP.” These intuitive quotes may help setyou free from your (mis) concepts of bondage and freedom, helping you discover Independent Joy as your Real Nature.A heartfelt invitation to sit back and enjoy this book . . . as Totality unfolds infinite possibilities.

Tsunami 2004 The IAF Story: A Few Good Men The Angry Sea
Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789382711544; Hardcover; New; New; 
When the tsunami hit the Indian coast on a bright Sunday morning on December 26, 2004, it shocked India and the world. It was as if the sea had washed away hubs of human activity in an instant. In India’s far eastern outpost, the Andaman & Nicobar Islands, the 9.0 magnitude earthquake under the Indian Ocean killed 10,136 people. The Car Nicobar Islands were among the worst affected.The Indian Air Force lost 116 personnel at its devastated Car Nicobar base. With a 100day deadline, seven Indian Air Force officers, including then Wing Commander Nitin Sathe, and a group of dedicated IAF personnel undertook the tough task of rebuilding the IAF’s Car Nicobar air base. Ten years on, now an Air Commodore, Nitin Sathe reveals how the IAF, with courage and determination, brought its Car Nicobar base back to life. A FEW GOOD MEN AND THE ANGRY SEA is the inspiring story about how human endeavor on a tiny corner of the earth overcame one of the greatest natural disasters in history. 107209

The Science of Enlightment: Enlightment, Liberation and God
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8124601305; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
What is the precise nature of Reality or God? And what exactly, in scientific terms, is the much-talked about spiritual phenomenon called Enlightenment? Is it at all scientifically possible for a state devoid of ego to exist? And can a person do his normal duties in life in such a state? This book answers these and kindred questions convincingly: in a way that should appeal to a scientist, a spiritualist and a lay person alike. Uncommonly combining in him the rationality of a medical scientist and the profundity of his religio-philosophical studies, the author demonstrates how the spiritual phenomena of Enlightenment and Liberation do have an eminently satisfactory scientific explanation -- an explanation which he also reconciles with conventional spiritual teachings. Finally, flitting adroitly from Advaita to Tao, Zen to Sufism, Buddhism to Christianity, Dr. Trasi shows how the teachings of different faiths aren't different in essence, but just constitute intricate parts of the one and the same grand, big picture. With deep insight, forceful logic and supporting references, Dr. Trasi's book not only dispels many of the myths, mis-conceptions and distortions woven around Enlightenment, the Liberated State, the Soul and Death, but explores the rationale behind wide-ranging traditional beliefs as well. Also set out is a scientific explanation of diverse spiritual terms. Nor is the practical aspect neglected here -- including, as it does, a scientifically-backed guide to offset the oft-recurring doubts and questions that nag the average spiritual enthusiast. Written lucidly, the book is bound to interest scientists, sceptics, and anyone else even remotely concerned with spirituality.Printed Pages: 336. 100425

India is a land where spiritual masters and mystics have blossomed from time to time, sharing their spiritual experience and knowledge for the benefit of all. They have explored a variety of spiritual, religious and philosophical dimensions to unravel the meaning of existence and significance of life. This book throws light on a rarely-studied aspect of Indian spirituality, its women mystics. The work is an account of the life of a master mystic, Shiva Yogini Amma, a woman who traversed new realms of experience in her spiritual quest. It is a record of her life from her birth to her attaining the nirvikalpa samadhi and after, and her teachings. It details the process of her spiritual realization; a unique experience exploring spiritual states with a foreknowledge and mastery. It explains her understanding of spiritual concepts relating to form and formlessness, maya, reality. It deals with her method of using the body and mind to attain the goals of the spirit. Based on one of her first woman disciples, Satyananda Yogini's recollections, the account elaborates on life in Shiva Yogini Amma's ashrama. It examins her growth as a samnyasin by delving into her daily activities, trances, interactions with disciples, and her teachings, particularly yoga instructions, to learners. The book will be useful to all those interested in spirituality or in studying it as a subject.Printed Pages: 262 with 8 coloured & 4 b/w illustrations. 100417

Good Women Do Not Inherit Land: Politics of Land and Gender in India
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8187358653; Softcover; New; 
‘Good women should not claim a share in the inheritance, even if they have no brothers. ...’ Notions such as this have, in their own way and over time, given the women in the Santal Parganas the resolve to wrest what is rightfully theirs. This is a powerful book in the way in which it unfolds the lives and anxieties of Santal women in the two villages of Dumka district, Jharkhand. From the very beginning, adivasi women come alive through separate life histories.They span different situations and social patterns but all of them relate to rights in landed property, and their own troubled identities in the backdrop of harsh living conditions, social discrimination and lack of state support. Land for the Santal women is not a mere economic resource. It stands for security, social position and identity, and in this men have a distinct advantage. Soon after, writing in a personal vein, the author unfolds how these anxieties of the Santal women resonate her own.Printed Pages: 368. 101771

Primitive Tribes of Orissa and their Development Strategies
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8124602735; First Edition; Softcover; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Tribal people living in the remote areas of the territory forms an indispensable part of the Indian population. More than 250 different tribal groups inhabit in India, of which 62 tribal groups live in Orissa, each varying in culture, language, economic life and level of literacy. The thirteen tribal groups, namely Birhor, Bondo, Didayi, Dongria-Khond, Juangs, Kharias, Kutia Khond, Lanjia Saoras, Lodhas, Mankidias, Paudi Bhuinyas, Soura and Chuktia Bhunjia, having pre-agricultural level of technology and extremely low level of literacy have been recognized as "Primitive Tribes" of Orissa. These tribal groups remain confined to their own small world and a probe into its history clearly shows that after a few generations the past turns into mythology. It was realized only after the Independence that to have a well-developed and prosperous nation, the needs and problems of the tribals were to be addressed and their welfare to be taken care thereof. The book presents an in-depth study of the various measures and provisions adopted, schemes introduced and plans implemented, since the Fifth Five-Year Plan, to redress the problems of the tribals; and apprises the readers about the on-going attempts in bringing them to the national mainstream through the 13 Micro Projects. Besides, the book presents an extensive detail of the ethnographic features of the entire Primitive Tribes with particular reference to their economic activities, social sanctions and varied problems faced by them. The realistic description of their pathetic life, deprived of all modern facilities, is highly touching and makes one wonder, do such people really exist in the 21st Century? The book will universally appeal to all readers and is highly recommended for the scholars of sociology and anthropology in particular.Printed Pages: 327 with 2 maps & 65 coloues & b/w illustrations. 100487

Material Culture of the Orissan Tribals: An Illustrated Study of Kutia, Dongaria and Malia Kondhs
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8124604231; First Edition; Softcover; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The book contains the material culture of the three sub-groups of the Kondhs, a major tribal community of Orissa, situated in the districts of Koraput, Kalahandi and Phulbani. It examines the cultural life aspects of the Kutia Kondhs, the Dongaria Kondhs and the Malia Kondhs which remarkably differs from one another even though there is much commonality in their social and cultural life. With numerous illustrations of their settlements, artefacts and art objects, items of material culture and plans of their houses, the book deals with similarities in socio-cultural, religious and aesthetic aspects of their life -- varying occupations, habitats, ecosystems and housing types. It attempts to show that a study of their material culture reveals unity in diversity. For the purpose, it deals with their household objects, quest for good personal care, dress, adornments, religious objects and musical instruments. It describes each artefact/common items of use along with its name (local dialect) in the Kondh communities. Giving an ethnographic account of the different sub-sects as well, the analysis systematically finds out what aspects of their culture has changed over the time and what has seen the least change. The work, both interesting and enlightening, is an attempt to unravel the social and cultural aspects of one of the most ancient and rich tribal traditions of India. It will be an invaluable asset to scholars of a variety of disciplines, mainly anthropology and sociology.Printed Pages: 226. 100497

Sacred Complex of Orissa
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8121206804; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Scared Complex of Orissa has had its origin and development, since time immemorial. Its evolution is traced back to different ancient dynasties. Later, it flourished under the partronage of the rulers of Solar dynasty and Gajapati Rajas of Orissa. As Puri has become the most important pilgrim centre, many Sadhus and Sanyasis visit it and have their own places of abode which have been developed into monasteries. With the growing ramification and elaboration in ritual services at the Jagannath Temple many ritual functionaries are appointed to serve Lord Jagannath. Thus, Puri has grown into a centre of Sacred Complex with its sacred institutions spread in its hinterland. In fact, the Scared Complex comprises the following: 1. Sacred Geography of Puri, 2. Gajapati Rajas and Lord Jagannath Temple, 3. Ritual functionaries 4. Monastic Order, 5. Brahmin Sasan Villages 6. Minor Rulers of Feudatory States, 7. Pilgrims, Public and Government. These aspects are closely related and dislocation in any of the them has severe repercussions throughout the whole nexus. This study of the Sacred Complex highlights the changes which have taken place in recent times and further, this study has implications for broader enquiries into some of the processes of secularization of modern Hinduism.Printed Pages: 366. 105964

Rabindranath Tagore: A Pictorial Biography
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 8189738755; Hardcover; New; New; 
Rabindranath Tagore, a name very close to our hearts, evokes a feeling of pride, awe and inspiration and continues to arouse our curiosity to know more about this multi-faceted personality. Biographers have either tried to analyse his works in the light of his life or in the perspective of his contemporary time. This book chronicles the Poet’s contributions in the context of the period to which he belonged, bringing into light those incidents, anecdotes and issues which have often been overlooked but which nonetheless are significant as they enable us to understand Tagore better.His role as a son, brother, husband, father; his accomplishments as a poet, philosopher, writer, painter, choreographer, actor; his relations with his family, friends, contemporary writers and poets, as well as predecessors; his correspondences with the political leaders of his time within the nation as well as abroad; and above all, his interpretations about life, revealing his quest for love, faith and devotion and his deep-rooted anguish, his unfulfilled dreams and expectations as projected in the broad sweep of this lucid narration reveal two facets of the Poet—a man of extraordinary abilities yet a man having ordinary expectations, who could thereby understand the joys and sorrows of the common man keeping aside his own gains and losses. And it is for this reason that Tagore remains dear to all people cutting across boundaries, generations, caste, creed or sect.Printed Pages: 280 with 172 b/w photographs. 106516

Recovering Subversion: Feminist Politics Beyond the Law
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8178240858; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This books is about the relation between law and feminist politics. The area it traverses ranges from feminist initiatives on sexual harassment to the parity movement in France. Nivedita Menon addresses a particular dilemma for radical politics—in particular, feminist politics—in India. The dilemma has become visible over the last two decades and arises at the interface of radical political practice and the logic of constitutionalism. By 'constitutionalism' she refers to the specific method adopted by modern democracies of safeguarding the autonomy of the individual self. It is now generally recognised, however, that this objective is achieved by enforcing universal norms that marginalise and de-legitimise contesting worldviews and value systems. This particular method of organising democracies has a specific history and arose in a particular location—in Europe in the seventeenth century. By historicising this method, Menon shows us how, four centuries later, we live in a very different world. The dilemma that faces radical politics today is therefore what Menon terms the 'paradox of constitutionalism'. This occurs when various differing moral visions come up against the universalising drive of constitutionality and the language of universal rights. By examining three issues that the women's movement in India has engaged with—the practice of selective abortion of female foetuses, sexual violence, and reservations for women in representative institutions—Menon unfolds a two-pronged argument, namely that (a) the language of rights and citizenship is no longer unproblematically available to an emancipatory politics; and (b) that specifically in the context of feminist politics it has become increasingly difficult to sustain 'woman' as the subject of such a politics, despite (or perhaps because of) the explosion of 'gender' as a category of analysis in official state and NGO discourse. The book concludes by exploring the consequences of this understanding for feminist theory and practice. Printed Pages: 288. 031565

Critical Studies in Politics: Exploring Sites, Selves, Power
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125052704; Hardcover; New; New; 
Critical Studies in Politics is a collection of essays that redefines the discipline of political science. It brings into view objects of study not normally visible to the discipline, through a creative engagement with other disciplinary formations. The volume is divided into four broad intersecting sections. The question of constructions of selfhood emerges as a central pre-occupation in the first titled ‘Exploring Selfhood'. The essays in this section--ranging from the modern Dalit self to the construction of the Asura over time--investigate the construction of the Self in the face of the Other; and looks at selfhood, not so much as a question of past cultural memory but as self-fashioning in the present. The second section--'Spatiality and Power'--analyses the idea of spatiality and explains its relationship with power. It discusses issues ranging from urbanisation and the politics of SEZs, to the entry of cinema halls in Delhi, and its implications for the formation of the 'public'. The third section titled 'State and Governmentality' examines state practices as they render legible various aspects of populations--from prison labour under colonialism to the organisation of official memory by the postcolonial state. 'Reconfiguring Categories of Thought'--the final section--seeks to unsettle conceptual categories such as 'capitalism', 'science', 'politics' and 'development'. Located in the 'interstices of disciplines', these essays by scholars from mainstream political science departments are at once contemporary and historical. This volume will be of interest to students and scholars of political science, film and culture studies, gender studies and anthropology.Printed Pages: 564. 101978

Solutions for the World's Biggest Problems: Costs and Benefits
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0521733146; First Edition; Paperback; New; 150 x 230 Mm 
The world has many pressing problems. Thanks to the efforts of governments, NGOs, and individual activists there is no shortage of ideas for resolving them. However, even if all governments were willing to spend more money on solving the problems, we cannot do it all at once. We have to prioritize; and in order to do this we need a better sense of the costs and benefits of each ‘solution’. This book offers a rigorous overview of twenty-three of the world’s biggest problems relating to the environment, governance, economics, and health and population. Leading economists provide a short survey of the state-of-the-art analysis and sketch out policy solutions for which they provide cost-benefit ratios. A unique feature is the provision of freely downloadable software which allows readers to make their own cost-benefit calculations for spending money to make the world a better place.

How do we understand the ethics of humanitarian intervention in today’s world? After Western intervention in Libya's civil war this new edition of A New Generation Draws the Line provides timely answers.

Other chapters examine the West’s uses and abuses of 'humanitarian intervention' including detailed studies of East Timor and Kosovo.The actions of Muammar Gaddafi and the trial of Serbian military commander Ratko Mladic have re-energised narratives about the role of the 'civilised' West. In this book, Chomsky deploys his forensic method - asking the difficult questions the West would prefer to avoid. Printed Pages: 184. 111694

New Horizons in the Study of Language and Mind
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2000; 0521658225; First Edition; Paperback; New; 228 x 152 Mm 
New Horizons in the Study of Language and Mind is an outstanding contribution to the philosophical study of language and mind, by one of the most influential thinkers of our time. In a series of penetrating essays, Chomsky cuts through the confusion and prejudice which has infected the study of language and mind, bringing new solutions to traditional philosophical puzzles and fresh perspectives on issues of general interest, ranging from the mind-body problem to the unification of science. Using a range of imaginative and deceptively simple linguistic analyses, Chomsky defends the view that knowledge of language is internal to the human mind. He argues that a proper study of language must deal with this mental construct. According to Chomsky, therefore, human language is a ‘biological object’ and should be analyzed using the methodology of the sciences. His examples and analyses come together in New Horizons in the Study of Language and Mind to give a unique and compelling perspective on language and the mind. • Written by Noam Chomsky, one of the most influential thinkers of our time • Explores the concept that knowledge of language is internal to the human brain (i.e. the concept of innate language) • Offers new solutions to - and fresh perspectives on - traditional philosophical puzzles and issues of general interest in the study of human language and the mind Contents Foreword by Neil Smith; Preface; Acknowledgements; 1.

The Divinity of Krishna
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1984; 8121501199; First Edition; Cloth; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This book deals with the extremely popular theme of Krishna. This is a thorough and thoughtful analysis of a subject of importance both to Sanskrit literary history and to the history of Hindu religion. Tracing an interesting and important span in the history of the religions of Krishna, this book studies the development in the understanding of Krishna's divinity as depicted, in his biography in the Harivamsa, the Visnupurana and the Bhagvatapurana. Each of these texts come from a different century; and each shows a distinct attitude towards its subject, attitudes that might be reduced to the terms hero worship orthodox piety and mystical love. It is in the analysis and comparison of these attitudes that the distinct contribution of the present book lies. After analysing how these three texts in their treatment of the very same episodes in the life of Krishna paint a progressively more divine portrait of Krishna, the book traces the evolution of philosophical and theological concepts concerning Krishna. Thus the understanding of Krishna's divinity, while a mere sapling in the Harivamsa, grows in the Visnupurana and attains to full maturity in the Bhagavata. Printed Pages: 196. 001262

Land Revenue Administration Under the Mughals (1700-1750)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1989; 8121504775; Second Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
The Mughal Empire of the great Mughals always evoked stock images of splendour, and scores of authors wrote volumes on it. But only a dedicated few like Dr. Noman Ahmad Siddiqi took enormous pains to analyse and interpret the infrastructure of the Mughal Empire-the contemporary land administration and agrarian institutions. In this book, Dr. Siddiqi probes into the conflicting, but not mutually exclusive, rights and interests involved in the landholdings under the Mughals. With Clarity and understanding, he analyses the administrative practices of the Mughals. Referring to a mass of patiently collated data, Dr. Siddiqi shows how the Mughal administration sought to lessen or resolve the contradictions inherent in the land-revenue system. The stability of the Mughal government, the oriental extravaganza of power and the magnificence of the successive emperors, all, Dr. Siddiqi holds, rested on the success of agrarian administration-the base of the many-splendoured Mughals. This well-documented study delineates the decline of the Mughal opulence that came in the wake of a breakdown in the land administration. The overwhelming increase in the number of jagirdars, who claimed shares in the surplus produce, accelerated the pace of disintegration. Dr. Siddiqi's treatment of the working of the institutions of the zamindari, revenue-assignments and revenue-free-grants is characterised by the unyielding objectivity of a trained historian. His exposition of the social and economic role of the zamindars and madad-maash holders is a valuable contribution to our understanding of the land-relationship in the Mughal Empire.

Subhashini’s narrative unfolds a story, within a sea of stories, which has remained silent in the dominant historical discourse. Her memory evokes contrasting images of violence, martyrdom and Partition. Not 1947 but 1942—the year of her father’s ‘martyrdom’—is recalled as a violent rupture in her memory. Partition is a moment of celebration, revenge, divine retribution, empathy, remorse, tragedy and fear. Translating Subhashini’s oral testimony, Nonica Datta recreates the memory of a colonial subject, living in postcolonial times, as a historical narrative. Moving beyond a historical event and well-established historical facts, Violence, Martyrdom and Partition is a parallel history of events and non-events, memory and history, testimony and experience. Breaking the silence of an oral testimony and presenting memory as history, this work opens up the historians’ territory. This testimony defies the opposition between subject and agent, victim and victimizer, witness and survivor, aggressor and spectator, perpetrator and bystander. Subhashini’s candid, repetitive narrative suggests a remarkable interplay of individual and collective remembrance, and reveals the shifts, ambiguities, silences and contradictions in an individual memory. 026924

My God is a Women
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2012; 818976652X; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
An innocuous article in a magazine lands nine-year-old Safia Mehdi in the world of purdah. Her father gets her married to Abbas Jafri, son of the famous Jafri family of Lucknow. Abbas is a barrister and author of a controversial book. Safia’s father hopes that she would be able to bring back her deviated husband to ‘God’s true faith’. Ironically, Abbas who dreams of a liberated India where women enjoy equal rights as men, leads Safia to break free from the stereotype of a traditional Muslim woman. Set against the tumultuous period of pre-Independence, the husband-wife duo embarks on a journey, elucidating the way to a progressive nation. However, just when everything seems alright, Abbas is issued a fatwa for confronting the Imam, preaching inequality between men and women. His Marxist Party too ostracizes him for criticizing the Shariat for the sorry state of the Muslim women in the country. Consequently, Abbas is killed by Muslim fanatics and Safia is left all alone to fend for herself and her daughter.With time, Safia gains grit and common sense. Armed with her forth righteousness and sheer belief in her 'power' of being a woman, Safia walks on, championing the cause of women empowerment. But does she manage to bring about that much-awaited change or falls a victim to the repressive dogmas of the society? Can she help the Muslim women to step forward, wrench their tightly closed fingers open and set out to build a world to suit their destiny? Can women become the God that they were always meant to be? My God is a Woman tries to seek answers to some of these questions.Printed Pages: 306. 104755

Denied by Allah: Angst Against Archaic Laws of Halala, Triple Talaq, Mut'ah and Khula
Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789382711582; Softcover; New; 
Facing the indignity of having to sleep with a stranger just to return to a husband who has pronounced Triple Talaq in a fit of anger; running from pillar to post to end a marriage by begging for Khula, Denied by Allah is a book that mirrors stories of women for whom even God does not seem to have mercy. These are women who have opened the windows of their bleak, painful lives in these pages; some surviving Mut'ah (pleasure), a temporary marriage, eq­uivalent to prostitution.This book discusses medieval laws irrelevant in the 21st century, sexist biases that pass for conventions, life impacting decisions made only by men which have denied women basic respect and protection, dignity and humaneness, often in the name of religion. The book asks, what has the community gained by keeping half of its population backward, ill-educated, chained to archaic laws, unwell and deprived? And how long will the laws for Muslim women in democratic India remain the same as in any Shariah-governed country? Printed Pages: 160. 107208

Meena Kumari: The Poet, A Life Beyond Cinema
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8174369678; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Meena Kumari was not only an iconic star of Hindi cinema, she was also a poet of great flair and delicacy. This book contains a compelling selection of her poems in the original Urdu and in brilliant English translations by Noorul Hasan. Haunting, crystalline and precisely observed, Meena Kumaris poetry reveals a side of her personality that was rarely on display in her films. It proves beyond any doubt that she was a much more sensitive and self-aware woman than her fans tend to realize. With a selection of critical and biographical material on Meena Kumari, including a concise introductory essay in which Daisy Hasan and Philip Bounds argue that much of Meena Kumaris poetry can be read as a barbed critique of Indian popular culture, this book is an essential reading for all her many admirers.Printed Pages: 160. 037861

Tuberculosis in India: A Case of Innovation and Control
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2015; 812505961X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 22 Cm 
India is the country with the highest number of patients with active tuberculosis (TB). Emerging drug resistance poses a huge threat, but migration, urbanisation, poverty and the complexity of public and private healthcare challenge the control efforts as well. Innovation for TB control is urgently needed and is often imagined as providing new drugs, diagnostics and vaccines. In this book, Nora Engel argues that innovations of services, organisations, strategies and delivery mechanisms are crucial too. In a unique analysis on how innovation for TB control is practised, this book provides extensive coverage of four cases of innovation in public TB control in India: the involvement of private sector players, the emerging policy responses to multidrug resistant TB, the development of new diagnostic technologies and of new treatment guidelines. The book asks how diverse actors (public and private health providers, patients, activists, researchers and policymakers) engaged in TB control in India are balancing innovative activities with ongoing control work. This shows that innovation for TB control is not a linear process of improvement, but rather a complicated, continuous undertaking, in which different perspectives and practices often clash. How can innovation be fostered without jeopardising the control efforts? And how is an infectious disease to be controlled without stifling innovation?Using approaches from science and technology studies (STS), innovation studies, medical anthropology and sociology, the book provides suggestions on how innovation and control could be balanced, and offers a relevant and unique contribution to the literature on innovation in global health and on TB in India.Printed Pages: 281with b/w illustrations. 102274

Krishen Khanna: Images in My Time
Mapin Publishing; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8188204951; Hardcover; New; New; 
Krishen Khanna’s work is placed in its biographical, historical and social context through the examination of several of his paintings among which are Flagellation and a series of bandwallahs (musicians) in the 1970s. The book combines Krishen Khanna’s monograph with the discussion of the socio-political context which motivated a generation of Indian artists.Khanna’s style is discussed by Norbert Lynton—the artist dabbled in abstraction but returned to representational art as a member of the Progressive Artists’ Group. The depiction of the musicians has motivated two writers—Gayatri Sinha and Marilyn Rushton—to look at Khanna’s work in relation to the theme of music.

21285 Norbert Peabody
Hindu Kingship and Polity in Postcolonial India
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 8175963662; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Through the analysis of eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century texts on the Hindu Kingdom of Kota in Rajasthan, Norbert Peabody explores the ways in which historical consciousness, or memory, is culturally constructed and how this consciousness informs social experience. By building on the premise that no society receives the past in a transparent, universal and objective way, he unravels how the past in Kota has been fashioned. His analysis demonstrates how different styles of historical interpretation sustain different regimes, and how specific varieties of social and political activity are founded upon these different perceptions of the past. In this way, he suggests that different societies not only establish different co-ordinates of value in their constructions of the past, but also that the very processes of social and political transformation differ from society to society. This is a fascinating and challenging book which promises to become a classic in the field. Contents 1. The King is dead, long live the King!: or Karmic Kin(g)ship in Kota 2. In whose turban does the Lord reside?: Kings, Saints, and merchants in Western India 3. Military fiscalism and the cultural economy of devotion in eighteenth century Rajasthan 4. From ‘Royal Service’ to ‘maternal devotion’ during the Jhala Regency: Local politics at the end of the Old Regime 5. An incidental history of a supplementary article: Hindu Kin(g)ship and early Colonial rule. Printed Pages: 206 with 9 halftones, 5 figures, and 2 maps. 027110

Folk Tales of Tibet
Paljor Publications/Library of Tibetan Works & Archives; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8185102260; Reprint; Softcover; New; 
Folk Tales occupy an important place in Tibetan literature and often enrich the genre with their flavour and originality. But folk tales have remained unwritten and unrecorded. As such these fascinating tales have remained stored in the memories and were transmitted orally from generation to generation. In the process, a folk tale undergoes numerous changes, both gaining and losing a lot of their flavour. They are delightful nevertheless and never cease to surprise us with their store of princesses and witches: Dogs and demons and frogs and mirgos intermingled in an innocently evil world of their own. It is only in exile that Tibetans have taken up the important work of recording and documenting the many facets of Tibetan civilisation, including the folk tales.Printed Pages: 181. 103629
