Living Rock : Buddhist, Hindu and Jain Cave Temples in the Western Deccan
Marg Publications; Mumbai, India; 2013; 8192110672; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
Living Rock offers new perspectives into the fascinating world of Buddhist, Hindu and Jain cave sites in the western Deccan. From the 2nd century BCE to the 10th century CE, rock cut temples and monasteries appeared at various sites in the subcontinent - most notably across the western Deccan. Carved on the edge of the basaltic plateau, the cave sites were strategically placed near ancient trade routes and fertile land, showcasing architectural spaces designed for a variety of worship practices and monastic uses. With a wealth of material evidence, Living Rock presents elected case studies that explore fresh avenues of investigation. Contributions by archaeologists, art historians, historians and scholars of religion trace the cultural and religious phenomena associated with the development of these sites. Some proposed investigative models suggest new relationships between literary and visual evidence; others connect cave centres to religious and artistic contexts located outside the western Deccan, placing the rock-cut monuments in a wider cultural landscape.

21811 Pico Iyer
Abandon: A Romance
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0670049603; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
John Macmillan is an Englishman in California studying Sufism, and in particular Rumi, the thirteenth-century Islamic mystic and at present the best-selling poet in America. Traveling to Damascus, he hears rumors of a secret, heretical manuscript that might have escaped from Iran during the chaos of its Revolution, and taking a message back to California, ends up encountering Camilla Jensen, an open if somewhat wayward Californian, who seems in some way connected to the world of fugitive texts. Following the trail of mystical poems through Spain and India to Iran, and trying to unravel the mystery that lies behind Camilla, John finds himself descending ever deeper into a world of passion and bewilderment. Then, suddenly, a manuscript appears, and Camilla disappears, leaving him closer to an understanding of some things, yet further from a real understanding of what is most important to him. Abandon is a mystical romance in the classic Persian tradition brought into the bleached sunlight of Southern California today. But it is also an unexpected and distinctive look at the clash between Islam and the West, at a time when Los Angeles is partly run by Iranian exiles and the long-closed cities of Iran are slowly opening up to Westerners. Eerie and incandescent, Abandon displays Iyer’s unique gift for showing the dance of dreams and desires and preconceptions that ensues when cultures collide. Printed Pages: 368. 002732

21813 Pico Iyer
The Open Road: The Global Journey of the Fourteenth Dalai Lama
Penguin/Viking; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0670082244; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
One of the most acclaimed and perceptive observers of globalism and Buddhism now gives us the first serious consideration—for Buddhist and non-Buddhist alike—of the Fourteenth Dalai Lama’s work and ideas as a politician, scientist, and philosopher. Pico Iyer has been engaged in conversation with the Dalai Lama (a friend of his father’s) for the last three decades—an ongoing exploration of his message and its effectiveness. Now, in this insightful, impassioned book, Iyer captures the paradoxes of the Dalai Lama’s position: though he has brought the ideas of Tibet to world attention, Tibet itself is being remade as a Chinese province; though he was born in one of the remotest, least developed places on earth, he has become a champion of globalism and technology. He is a religious leader who warns against being needlessly distracted by religion; a Tibetan head of state who suggests that exile from Tibet can be an opportunity; an incarnation of a Tibetan god who stresses his everyday humanity. Moving from Dharamsala, India—the seat of the Tibetan government-in-exile—to Lhasa, Tibet, to venues in the West, where the Dalai Lama’s pragmatism, rigor, and scholarship are sometimes lost on an audience yearning for mystical visions, The Open Road illuminates the hidden life, the transforming ideas, and the daily challenges of a global icon.

Tanjavur Brahahisvara: An Architectural Study
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1995; 8185503044; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 27 x 37 Cm 
The Brhadisvara temple also known as the Rajarajesvara temple built by Raja Raja I in 1010 A.D. has been acclaimed as the finest achievement of Chola art. The perfection of its architectural plan, its impeccable balance, the sculptural reliefs and murals and the bronzes have been commented upon by art historians. Some inscriptions have been studied as invaluable sources for evidence of the administrative machinery of the Cholas. Each of these facets emerge from an integral vision where each part is related to the whole. In its totality, it is not a mere architectural monument, instead it is a living bio-organism which has served as a centre of social, economic and political life in many succeeding centuries. Movements travelled to it and in turn its influence permeated many others parts both far and near. During the Vijayanagar period, it had very active dialogue with Andhra and Karnataka; during the Maratha regime with North India and Western India. The significance of the temple and its patterns is not at the level of archaeology alone, it is exceedingly important as a centre of the region which provides milieu for interaction with other parts of India as also South East Asia. Its artistic excellence lies in the perfect balance of the parts and the whole, the architecture, sculpture, painting, the stone and the bronze images, the idols within, the reliefs without. The inscriptions on the walls of the temple provide a vast corpus of information at the level of economic, social, cultural, organizational and administrative patterns and structures. The Chola monuments, the Brhadisvara temple at Tanjavur in particular along with the Gangaikondacholapuram temple, have attracted the attention of archaeologists, epigraphists, literary critics, musicians, dancers, craft specialists, sociologists and anthropologists. The present volume on the Architecture of the Brhadisvara temple is the first of technical monographs as a result of the project. It is only appropriate that the architectural plan of the monument should precede the other studies relating to inscriptions, sculptural programme on inner and outer wall, murals in the garbhagrha, karanas on the upper storeys, inscriptions and much else. A standard code has been devised so that all subsequent studies will follow the same code. It is the monument which provides centrality to the region and constitute the steel frame for further studies on other aspects. Kapila Vatsyayan.

Educational Theories and Practices from the Majority World
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8178298775; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This work provides a healthy, comprehensive counterpoint to the ethnocentrism engrained in the widespread belief that scientific knowledge about education is typically Western. Stressing that the Western ‘minority’ perspective cannot hold true for the ‘majority’ of the world population situated outside Europe and North America, this edited volume explores traditional educational theories and practices developed in the majority world to study how they can improve modern schooling globally. Educational Theories and Practices from the Majority World probes the elements of culturally appropriate, quality schooling for various indigenous people in India, the Pacific and the Americas. One of the sections dwells on how to synergise the systems used in modern schools with the ones used in non-Western formal schools linked to religious institutions, such as Koranic, Sanskrit, Buddhist and Vodoo schools. Another section delves into educational policy issues in the context of globalization. This compilation brings together difficult-to-access theories and research by contributors from Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, Oceania, and South America. It is an invaluable resource for policy makers in Education and for students, researchers and academicians studying Education and Anthropology. Printed Pages: 424. 033187

Dewana, Khoimala and the Holy Banyan Tree
Seagull Books; Kolkata, India; 2004; 8170462584; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
'The hero of our story, Dewana, appears in the very first episode.' 'What does dewana mean?' 'Someone who's mad.' The image of this love-crazed hero haunts Khoimala, the gentle brahman girl, and her low-caste sweetheart, the young boatman, Golak, as they live out their doomed love story: doomed because social and religious taboos damn their forbidden love. On the one hand, eighteenth century rural Bengal, quickening to the pace of urban development, undergoes swift changes, as local markets thrive and traders flourish; on the other; a destitute young woman who is trapped in the darkness of harshly prescriptive custom to the despair of the boatman lad who can neither rescue her nor declare his love. In this masterful and deeply sensitive tale, Mahasweta Devi once again inter-weaves a social tapestry and the detail of human lives, creating a powerful tale of love, longing and passion set in a rime when the British are beginning to consolidate their hold on Bengal. Mahasweta Devi is one of India's foremost writers. Her powerful, satiric fiction has won her recognition in the form of the Sahitya Akademi (1979), Jnanpith (1996) and Ramon Magsaysay (1996) awards, amongst several other literary honours. She was also awarded the Padmasree in 1986, for her activist work amongst dispossessed tribal communities. 000985

21847 Pingali Suranna; Translated from Telugu By Velcheru Narayana Rao and David Shulman
The Sound of the Kiss or the Story That Must Never be Told
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2003; 019566499X; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Composed in the mid-sixteenth century, Pingali Suranna's Telugu novel The Sound of the Kiss, or The Story That Must Never Be Told could be considered the first novel written in South Asia. Suranna's masterpiece comes from a period of intense creativity in Telugu, when great poets produced strikingly modern innovations. The novel explodes preconceived ideas about early South Indian literature: for example, that the characters lack interiority, that the language is formulaic, and that Telugu texts are mere translations of earlier Sanskrit works. Employing the poetic style known as campu, which mixes verse and prose, Pingali Suranna's work transcends our notions of traditional narrative. "I wanted to have the structure of a complex narrative no one had ever known," he said of his great novel, "with rich evocations of erotic love, and also descriptions of gods and temples that would be a joy to listen to." The Sound of the Kiss is both a gripping love story, a complex rel igious allegory and a profound meditation on mind and language. Shulman and Rao include a thorough introduction that provides a broader understanding of, and appreciation for, the complexities and subtleties of this text. This magnificent novel is hard to put down, and will appeal to anyone interested in classical Indian literature. Printed Pages: 224. 033791

This is the first comprehensive introduction to Quakerism which balances a history of the theology of the Quakers or Friends with an overview of present day practice.

The book focuses in particular on notions of 'endtime', 'spiritual intimacy', and what counts as 'the world' as key areas of theological change. The second half of the book uses extracts from Quaker texts to highlight differences in belief and approach between the different traditions and analyses their future prospects. The book is generously illustrated and includes numerous diagrams to help the reader. Undergraduate and graduate students will find this an essential introduction to the Quaker movement. • Balances a history of Quaker theology with an overview of present day practice • Includes numerous illustrations, supplementary text panels, charts and diagrams • Comprehensively indexed and thoroughly cross-referenced Contents Introduction; Part I.

21862 Piyadassi Thera
The Buddha's Ancient Path
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8121511461; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
This is a book on basic Buddhism with a difference, for it is written by a monk who was native of Ceylon, a scholar and a well-known preacher and broadcaster in Ceylon. He had the Pali canon and the commentaries at his fingertips, so that his book is full of apposite stories and quotations of what the Buddha said-many of them appearing in English for the first time. In recent years a number of expositions of the Buddha's teachings have been published in English. But most of them lack authenticity and do not represent what the Buddha taught correctly. Hence the need for this authentic book based on the Four Noble Truths about suffering which are the central conception of Buddhism and on the Noble Eightfold Path which is Buddhism in practice. This should prove the standard textbook from which basic Buddhism or the Theravada is taught for many years to come. It cannot be stressed too strongly that the Mahayana Buddhism in Tibet, China and Japan is based on and developed out of this basic Buddhism of the Theravadins in Ceylon. Printed Pages: 280. 008870

A Hundred Small Steps
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 817829950X; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
While previous reports have focused solely on the ‘big’ issues like capital account convertibility, bank privatization, and priority sector norms, A Hundred Small Steps: Report of the Committee on Financial Sector Reforms goes deep into other areas where reforms are less controversial, but perhaps as important. The report argues that we need a change in mindset for the financial sector, one that recognizes that efficiency, innovation, and value for money are as important for the poor as they are for our new Indian multinationals, and these will come from improved governance, new entry and competition. Indeed the Committee believes that the road to making Mumbai an international financial centre runs through every village in India. The report is divided into separate self-contained chapters; the underlying theme behind all the proposals is the need to enhance inclusion, growth, and stability by allowing players more freedom, even while strengthening the financial and regulatory infrastructure. The role of the government is to create an enabling environment by building sound financial infrastructure. The Committee has focused primarily on broad principles and directions, without entering too much into details of implementation. It emphasizes three important reasons for financial sector reform: to include more Indians in the growth process; to foster growth itself; and to improve financial stability, flexibility, and resilience and thus protect the economy against the kind of turbulence that is affecting the world today. The Committee recognizes this is a difficult time to propose financial sector reforms in India. The near meltdown of the US financial sector seems to be proof that markets and competition do not work. This is clearly the wrong lesson to take from the debacle. The right lesson is that markets and institutions do succumb occasionally to excesses, which is why regulators have to be vigilant. The report argues for skilled regulators who encourage growth and innovation even while working harder to contain risks. Printed Pages: 208. 028558

Vikram and Vetal
Puffin; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0143334980; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms Dipankar Bhattacharya 
The king slashes his way through the forest, his sword cutting down the terrifying rings of leaves and branches. He climbs a tamarind tree and brings down a corpse hanging from its highest branch. Just as he turns to make his way out of the gloomy forest, an eerie voice cackles in his ear . . . Thus begins the saga of Vikramaditya, the brave and noble king, and the Vetal, his tormentor from the spirit world. As Vikramaditya trudges through the forest, the Vetal narrates stories to him, ending each with a riddle that tests the king’s famed sense of justice, his ideas of right and wrong. Many centuries later, a twelve-year-old girl, disgusted at the way her summer holiday is turning out, runs away to a dusty field where she meets a strange old man sitting under a large tree. The man tells her stories about kings and queens and people of long ago, tales of generosity, courage and wisdom as well as of treachery, deceit and great stupidity. Incredibly, each of the stories deals with ideas and issues that are being debated at home by her eccentric grandmother. She also learns that these are the ancient Vikram and Vetal stories, and that King Vikramaditya had asked for a boon wanting these tales to be handed down generations. But who is the old man? And what connects the girl to a king from ancient times? Deftly weaving together the age-old Vikram and Vetal stories with the mysterious happenings of a summer holiday, Poile Sengupta brings alive these classic tales in a new, energetic way. Funny, sad, serious and weird, this unique retelling proves how relevant these tales remain even today. Printed Pages: 163 with numerous b/w illustrations. 011595

Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789384030643; Softcover; New; 
If anyone could transform laughter to light, she did, Inga. Radiance upon radiance of laughter, chime upon bell chime of light sparkled and shone everywhere. It was as if the sky showered tiny star grains that scattered, glinting, on the hay heap we were cocooned in; they sparkled on the leaves of the jackfruit tree above and dusted my arms with gold. Who could resist such a dance of light…? I couldn’t, I never could. Almost never.Rapa is born into a Tamil Brahmin family, full of dark secrets. She is brought up in Delhi where an ‘English’ education introduces her to literature that is both fascinating and foreign. Her summer holidays are spent in the confines of the family home in Kerala, where she has for companion her cousin Inga. But as the two girls grow up, their lives change through a tortuous, pain-filled process.Forty years after her death, Rapa’s husband has her notes published, the story of her struggles against her family, her marriage and her final encounter with Inga.A tragic tale of yearning and hope, of derision and rage, of miracles and dreams, of commitment and utter rejection. 109692

Prehistoric Culture of Madurai Region
Sharada Publishing House; Delhi, India; 2014; 8192698319; Hardcover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
The archaeological studies of Tamil Nadu so far are primarily based on selective excavations carried out mainly in the prehistoric and early historic sites. No doubt, various scholars attempted in reconstructing the past with help of the data is quite admirable. They took all pain in assembling together all these data but faced difficulties in framing theories due to the inadequacy of the materials which the present volume meets these lacunas. The present book is in fact, the result of the author’s seven years of field observations made in the areas ruled by the Sangam Age chieftains mainly covering the Vaigai, Maratar and Gundar river basins of the southern district of Tamil Nadu. This comprehensive study has put the geological wealth and geographical position of a particular region in a better perspective to understand the evolutionary process of the particular culture. The vast archaeological data delineates the settlement pattern of Palaeolithic, Microlithic, Neolithic also Megalithic cultures of the people. Invention of the new techniques, paved the way for permanent settlements. Of this, Stone Age cultures, varies from regional to region. This book describes the significance of archaeological remains of the study area.Printed Pages: 203 with 16 b/w illustrations. 102725

Economic Democracy Through Pro Poor Growth
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 817829849X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This volume addresses a central dilemma of our times from a perspective based on lessons from the ground—persistence of structural poverty after sixty years of independence amidst rapid economic growth, widening social anomie, political crisis and failing policy. . The collection presents an alternative school of thought which has been evolved by scholars and activists over decades, in which the poor are presented not as the problem but as an essential resource. Among this volume’s distinguishing ideas are: a new role for the poor, raising mass consciousness, a core methodology for transformation, restructuring the state, pro-poor partnerships for all social constituencies, insistence on holism and values, learning from the poor and new social movements, and eschewing a priori thinking. This perspective powerfully argues the validity and feasibility of sustainable and transformative societal change. . The compilation is rich in lucidly presented case studies and illustrative examples. The strategies advocated would catalyse the process of achieving political and economic democracy at the grassroots and facilitate sustainable development. They would also help in the democratization of the phase of transition and growth. This work is an excellent reference source for development economists and students, researchers and faculty studying governance, poverty and human rights, and issues of security and human rights.

Satyagraha: The Story Behind the Revolution
Om Books International; New Delhi, India; 9789383202737; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This is the story behind the story of the revolution. It is the story of the hard work that went on for months. It is the story of fun on the sets. It is the story of costume crises and art direction accidents! It is the story of how a city was constructed in three months and torn down in two weeks. It is the story of actors putting the story above themselves. It is the story of how people come together with one passion—the passion to tell the story of a revolution. This story, too, is no less than a revolution. At Prakash Jha Productions, the vision is ‘Cinema with Power’. The emphasis is on fresh ideas, a strong narrative, original plots across different genres and piloting fresh trails which are commercially viable. The motive is to present to audiences in India and around the world fascinating and enthralling stories crafted by filmmakers from India and abroad.Printed Pages: 232. 105169

T-Junction: Crossing Over for Change
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380942698; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Times of India Books’ title ‘T- Junction’ by Poonam Srivastava sketches life stories of Crossover Indian Social Innovators who have capitalized on their mainstream professional skills to start parallel experiments of change impacting many lives. The 'T' metaphor represents the total path change between left or right like at a T- Junction traffic signal.We are concerned about the common thread of unrest running through recent traumatic events in seemingly unconnected places like Egypt, Greece, streets of burning London or our own backyard of Naxalite stress zones. We cannot ignore the unifying denominators of economic depravity and free radical forces of youth that threaten to ignite the tinder box of prevalent social inequities, one of the primary reasons behind such growing global unrest. Given such turbulent times, T- Junction is not just a book but a larger idea to inspire change. The ‘T’ metaphor brings many possibilities in its fold. It becomes the Tipping point Traction moment of Transition; showing methods of Triumph over Troubles in times of Travails, resulting in scale Transformation steered by a culture of Total Team play.The book hopes to intrigue and inspire readers, especially the younger generation, about some celebrated and some less known but equally amazing tales of 'cool' 'awesome' human effort. It aims to bridge a warm connect between the readers and the documented causes.T- Junction stories can play the role of a Torchbearer for motivating many others desiring to walk the path of social impact but lacking clarity on strategy and modalities. Hence, we are keen to maximize outreach for the book to benefit greater number of interested readers. We would be very indebted for your support in achieving this goal.Printed Pages: 344. 104934

China: Confucius in The Shadows
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789383649358; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Earlier this decade a statue of Confucius appears suddenly in Tiananmen Square in Beijing. It is facing Chairman Mao’s statue in front of the Forbidden City. Mysteriously, it disappears a few days later. Why was it removed overnight? Where is it now??No clear answers seem to have emerged. Most communist regimes have tried to make a break with the traditions of the past believing them to be the cause of all ills in society. But has the historical experience of Communist regimes shown that to be true? Today, Buddhist, Daoist and Confucian temples across cities and villages in China are crowded with people offering prayers. People swarm to pay their respects to their traditional sages. Like the warp and weft of a fabric, China has the mark of traditions and ancient ethos present in its society and this has come handed down over the centuries and across generations.Confucianism has been among the most well absorbed, best known and documented value systems in China. It was and still is a living tradition, a way of life and a philosophy. Propounded by Confucius (551-479 BC), this value system has had a lasting and deep seated influence on the Chinese. A philosopher and a thinker of the Spring and Autumn period, Confucius has been considered a wise and fair teacher and a shrewd strategist in war.In spite of the fact that Confucian values have been present beneath the surface in China along with Buddhist and Daoist beliefs for generations, it is interesting to study why Confucius is being talked about so much of late. Over the years in Communist China, Confucian thought had been swept under the carpet but resurrected in part depending on whether it suited the then current leadership. While Mao rejected Confucius’s ideas, he did not hesitate to use them whenever it suited him.A study of Confucius and his value systems at this moment in time makes sense and is important for a number of reasons. In the evolving socio political milieu of China, interpreting Confucian philosophy as being non confrontationist, benevolent and with values such as filial piety and harmony could help the current political regime deal with such problems as corruption and rising inequalities. In the quest for the answers relating to the psyche of the Chinese people there will always be questions. Many will be answered, many answers may change even as we attempt to write about them. However, it can be said that inspite of Marxist and Communist ideologies, regimes and political change, tradition and Confucian values in China have never been far from the surface and often above it. Through the history of China, this has held true, inspite of Communism, inspite of Mao and inspite of the current regime.Printed Pages: 282. 105040

Witnessing to Students: Efficacy of UESI in India (Christian Heritage Rediscovered: 16)
Christian World Imprints/B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789351480402; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The significant feature about India is that has "a wide variety of religious traditions." The Christian missions among these traditions face a great challenge. One of the observation in Indian missions is that the church has made a significant impact on `Dalits' and `Tribals', but its impact on Hindu and the Muslim communities is insignificant.The `Union of Evangelical Students of India', popularly known as UESI, has been one of the prominent ministries contributing to this end. This book meticulously evaluates the modus operandi employed by this ministry for the attainment of this objective.With a strong combination of academic as well as practical research. Author provides a wealth of information with regard to how to do effective students' ministry in India. It also reflects Author's wide experience, insights and passion for the work of evangelization. The book is meant to seek answers of some unanswered questions like: Why Christian missions in India had been stagnated among the `Dalits' and `Tribals' only? why they are not able to succeed in witnessing the Gospel to upper caste Hindus and Muslims also?This factual and figurative presentation is going to be a manual for all those who passionately follow the teachings of Lord Jesus Christ and want to share the Gospel not only to the large student population of India but also meaningfully to the South Asian individuals and communities with relevance and sensitivity so that they could undergo a spiritual rebirth and pave their way towards revealing the Divine.Printed Pages: 114. 106402

A Theological Response to Street Children: An Empirical Study (Christian Heritage Rediscovered: 19)
Christian World Imprints/B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789351480532; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is meant to be a squeaky wheel to bring up the issue of street children evaluating their present condition globally as well as locally. This well-explored presentation focuses on the subject which otherwise was always neglected within the social sciences especially in theological studies. Presently, several Social Work Agencies & NGOs are working to rehabilitate these street children, but still this social disease needs serious attention by the public at large and especially by the Christian community.During the Biblical times `street children' was not a serious issue as it is now, but there are instances that can help us to understand God's concern for the poor and rejected people on the streets, which includes children also. The Bible has much to say on the provision and protection of the children. Contrary to the Bible sayings, these runaway kids get involved in social crimes as well as sexual abuse and consequently develop HIV infection. The missiological research on children proves that this is the right age to help them to know God who can liberate them from all the oppressive structures.The Author carefully ties in the problem of street children around the world with the humane acts already done by Christians. But, he is also concerned with the increasing number of street children especially in India. This well-researched, compassionate, and groundbreaking book is for those who have a real concern for these special gifts of God.Printed Pages: 120. 106396
