Literature and Social Change
Kalpaz Publications/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789351280880; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Dalit Discourse, in India have occupied significant place in the discipline of literature as well as in the discourse of social sciences. Like any other socially active discourse, this is also dynamic and keeps engaging with newer ideas and themes. The literary expression of political consciousness, and movements among or for the Dalits across India is the new emerging trend. This trend has served enormously to the cause and widened its constituency. The present book explores relationship between politics and literature with a critical analysis of texts from the Hindi literature both by Dalits and non- Dalits. It underlines not only the major issues and concerns of the literature, but also to demonstrate that political consciousness is also expressed through many more innovative and creative methods like art and literature. This book also claims to be a provocative and thoughtful account of the debates among Dalit writers on how Dalit literature should be approached.Printed Pages: 232. 106169

22307 Parna Sengupta
Pedagogy for Religion: Missionary Education and the Fashioning of Hindus and Muslims in Bengal
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125045058; Hardcover; New; New; 
Offering a new approach to the study of religion and empire, this innovative book challenges a widespread myth of modernity—that Western rule has had a secularizing effect on the non-West. Sengupta reveals instead the paradox that the pursuit and adaptation of modern vernacular education, mainly imported to the colonies by Protestant missionaries, opened up new ways for Indians to reformulate ideas of community along religious lines. Debates over the mundane aspects of schooling, rather than debates between religious leaders, transformed the everyday definitions of what it meant to be a Christian, Hindu, or Muslim.Thus instruction in science also became a means to instruct the Indian child about the primacy of reason and rationality over superstition. Modern education, Pedagogy for Religion argues, did not secularize religious traditions in India as much as it reformulated definitions of religion and religious community as a part of a larger global process.Printed Pages: 224. 101831

Aftab, a young Kashmiri boy, leads a double life. By day, he is a normal, bubbly teenager whose prime concerns are cricket, family and friends. The night holds the secrets of the life of a child, one who sneaks away to confabulate with Akram and his fledgling group of tearaway terrorists. Akram, so handsome, so exciting. But what Aftab doesn’t realize, so dangerous. Aftab is in complete awe of Akram and is willing to follow him to the ends of the earth. And Akram is more than willing to send him there. A complelling story of a child born into unrest. Though set against the militancy in Kashmir, this novel could belong anywhere in today’s world where violence is just a breath away. A brave story, never told in so raw a form, this is ‘reality fiction’ at its most real. A book for teenagers-and for adults of all ages- who live in a world where ‘cops and robbers’ is not fun anymore, but a deadly game. Printed Pages: 173. 009959

Pure Sequence: A Story of growing old gracefully or otherwise
IndiaInk/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8186939563; Softcover; New; 
Pure Sequence is not a beginning, middle and end kind of novel, but rather a story of women in their twilight years; aglow with their past, learning to cherish their present and not worrying too much about the future. It is about the realities that confront us all, sooner or later. Those who leave their parents to lead their own lives; those whose own children are flying out of the nest; those who are forced into believing that their life is done behind them; to those who admire the strength and fortitude of their grandmothers. Pure Sequence is about the quiet confidence of women growing old gracefully or otherwise, realizing that they are in yet another prime of their lives. Printed Pages: 168. 108489

Weed
IndiaInk/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8186939415; Softcover; New; 
After Umer's father leaves to join the jihadis, the family is pushed to the brink of poverty and desperation, but his mother will have nothing to do with her husband. The government and charities working in Kashmir, in their better wisdom, believe it is best not to offer sustenance to the children and windows of militants. Isolated by society and trapped in adversity, will the mother's determination to turn her back on violence crumble? Will Umer go his father's way? What choices will this family make? Weed, a follow-up of the award winning No Guns at My Son's Funeral, is a hard-hitting exploration of uneasy questions that keep raising their insistent heads in the 'war against terror'. Complex issues are examined through the innocence of a child caught in a web he never spun. Printed Pages: 142. 108504

22317 Partab Ramchand
India's Captains: From Nayadu to Ganguly
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0143031678; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
The captain of the Indian cricket team has to be a man of a different breed. Cricket evokes such tremendous passion among its followers in India that every action of the cricket team, particularly of its captain, is assessed under a microscope, and public reaction can swing from the highest praise to the harshest and often personal criticism. The position evokes respect, admiration and even a certain awe, just as it is also a hotbed of intrigues, jealousies and rivalries, often having nothing to do with the game itself. India's Captains is a comprehensive account of the various aspects of cricket captaincy in India. It discusses the individual roles played by each captain—from C.K. Nayudu in 1932 to Rahul Dravid in 2004—and the unique strategies employed by them, even as it takes the reader into the world of behind-the-scenes wheeling and dealing often involved in the selection of the captain. In the process, it offers insights into the peculiar circumstances leading to the appointment of four captains in a single series in 1958_59, the controversy surrounding Krishnamachari Srikkanth's dismissal even after the team he led to Pakistan in 1989 performed so well, and the reasons for Vijay Merchant never leading the country in an official Test and M.A.K. Pataudi becoming the youngest ever Test captain at twenty-one. It also analyses how the mantle of captaincy can affect the on-field performance of even the best batsman in the world, Sachin Tendulkar, and what it takes to be Sourav Ganguly, India's most successful captain. Interesting and often provocative, this is a book all followers of the game will enjoy reading. Printed Pages: 288. 003262

Alexander the Great's Art of Strategy: Lessons from the Great Empire Builder
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 014303197X; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
Alexander the Great (356-323 BC) was arguably the greatest military strategist, tactician and ruler in world history. At the age of 20, he ascended to the throne of his father’s kingdom. By the age of 23 he had defeated Persia, his nation’s greatest enemy. And by the time of his death, aged 33, his armies had conquered virtually the entire known world, from the shores of the Mediterranean to the foothills of India, including the lands of modern-day Iraq and Afghanistan. Alexander’s achievements have inspired and influenced a great number of past and current military, political and business leaders. This book provides the wisdom and secrets of this great empire builder, demonstrating how they can be applied to conquer today’s challenges. Blending insights from his years of business experience with his lifelong study of Alexander, Partha Bose interweaves a gripping biography with compelling analyses of strategies, tactics and leadership approaches of successful institutions—including Dell, GE, Honda, IKEA, the Harvard Law School and the East India Company—and individuals, such as Elizabeth I, Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Bernard Montgomery, Gandhi, Jack Welch and Lou Gerstner. This is a provocative and invaluable book for leaders, and readers, in all fields, everywhere. Printed Pages: 320. 022880

22325 Partha Chatterjee
The Black Hole of Empire: History of a Global Practice of Power
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8178243733; Softcover; New; 
The Black Hole of Empire follows the ever-changing representations of this historical event and founding myth of the British Empire in India, from the eighteenth century to the present. Partha Chatterjee explores how a supposed tragedy paved the ideological foundations for the “civilizing” force of British imperial rule and territorial control in India. Chatterjee takes a close look at the justifications of modern empire by liberal thinkers, international lawyers, and conservative traditionalists, and examines the intellectual and political responses of the colonized, including those of Bengali nationalists. The two sides of empire''s entwined history are brought together in the story of the Black Hole memorial: set up in Calcutta in 1760, demolished in 1821, restored by Lord Curzon in 1902, and removed in 1940 to a neglected churchyard. Challenging conventional truisms of imperial history, nationalist scholarship, and liberal visions of globalization, Chatterjee argues that empire is a necessary and continuing part of the history of the modern state.Printed Pages: 440. 101958

Subaltern Studies XI: Community, Gender and Violence
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8178240335; Softcover; New; 
In its early phase, Subaltern Studies dealt extensively with community and violence in the context of peasant uprisings. Once the problem of peasant involvement in the modern politics of the nation had been posed, complexities in that relationship began to emerge. A new dimension was introduced when the relationship between community, gender and national politics came to be taken seriously. The present volume confronts the whole range of new issues raised by the relations between community, gender and the politics of violence.Printed Pages: 360. 101972

The Selected Papers of Partha Dasgupta brings together the works of one of the most distinguished economists working today. Professor Dasgupta was Knighted in 2002 for services to economics and his research interests have covered welfare and development economics, the economics of technological change, population, environmental and resource economics, the theory of games, and the economics of undernutrition. This two-volume collection represents a body of work spanning 40 years and contains a selection of Dasgupta's most original papers on six key themes. Both volumes feature foundational papers and substantial original introductions. The articles reflect inter-disciplinary scholarship in the author's search for a unifying way to analyse the problems people face in trying to allocate resources over time, among groups, and across uncertain contingencies. Each volume opens with an extended essay explaining the motivation underlying economics; the concept of what economics is about and how modern economists move within it. The author makes essential use of findings in anthropology, demography, ecology, geography, moral philosophy, and the environmental and nutritional sciences, but studies social phenomena through the lens of economics, to unravel the pathways by which scarce resources are produced, exchanged, and disseminated.

Much Maligned Monsters: History of European Reactions to Indian Art
Oxford University Press; 2013; 0198089716; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Originally published by the Clarendon Press in 1977, Much Maligned Monsters, one of the first comprehensive work dealing with the Western response to Indian art, is considered a classic on the subject. In this fascinating study interspersed with more than 120 visuals, eminent historian Partha Mitter traces the history of European reactions to Indian art, from the earliest encounters of explorers with the Exotic East to the more sophisticated but still incomplete appreciations of the early-twentieth century. This revised and updated edition includes an Introduction that reflects upon the profound changes in Western interpretations of non-Western societies over the past 35 years since the book was first published in 1977.

The Triumph of Modernism: India's Artists and the Avant-garde, 1922-1947
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0195693361; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
This richly illustrated book explores the contested history of art and nationalism in the tumultuous last decades of British rule in India. Western avant-garde art inspired a powerful weapon of resistance among India’s artists in their struggle against colonial repression, and it is this complex interplay of Western modernism and Indian nationalism that forms the core of this book. The Triumph of Modernism takes the surprisingly unremarked Bauhaus exhibition held in Calcutta in 1922 as marking the arrival of European modernism in India. Partha Mitter examines the decline of ‘oriental art’ and the rise of naturalism as well as that of modernism in the 1920s, and the relationship between primitivism and modernism in Indian art: with Mahatma Gandhi inspiring the Indian elite to discover the peasant, the people of the soil began to be portrayed by artists as ‘innocent children of nature’. A distinct feminine voice also evolved through the rise of female artists. Finally, the author probes the ambivalent relationship between Indian nationalism and Imperial patronage of the arts. With a fascinating array of art works, the book throws much light on a previously neglected strand of modern art, and challenges the dominance of Western modernism. Readership.

The G20 Macroeconomic Agenda: India and the Emerging Economies
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2014; 110705110X; Hardcover; New; New; 
As the premier forum for global economic governance G20 was successful in warding off the global economic crisis of 2008–09 and preventing it from becoming a full-blown depression. In its wake G20 initiated a series of financial sector reforms and managed to achieve unprecedented global cooperation by bringing together the G7 and newly emerging economies for improved global macroeconomic management. As the global economy recovered in 2010 G20 expanded to include a development agenda in particular achieving food security controlling commodity price volatility recycling global savings to boost infrastructure investment and enhancing energy and environmental sustainability. Despite the emergence of BRICS there is no scholarly compendium on emerging economy concerns and perspectives set in the context of G20 reform initiatives and impasses. This book assesses the progress of the G20 with a focus on India. It discusses the role India has played in the success of the G20 process and more importantly delineates the possible barriers to India’s enhanced involvement in the G20 and in global governance in general. As the global economy remains mired in uncertainties ? stemming from the Euro crisis lacklustre economic performance in the United States and slowing of major emerging economies ? this volume fills the need for a collection of analytical research papers from the perspective of emerging economies and takes stock of the performance of the G20 thus far. It also points towards the unresolved issues and the future course of action in global financial and macroeconomic stance.Printed Pages: 316. 101412

Indian Tax Administration: A Dialogue
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8125051805; Hardcover; New; New; 
Born out of a first-of-its-kind series of discussions between tax officials and practitioners, Indian Tax Administration: A Dialogue identifies and addresses challenges facing India as it contemplates tax reforms. Both, the dialogue and A Dialogue, have been organised by eminent tax policy analyst Parthasarathi Shome whose recommendations on tax administration policy have been included not only in India’s Ninth and Tenth Five-Year Plans, but also in more than thirty countries where he has given technical assistance in taxation. This volume gives detailed analyses of the organisational structure, risk assessment and management in audit selection, dispute resolution and computerisation of both Direct and Indirect tax administrations. An investigation into the newly-established Large Taxpayer Units and a statistical study of the effectiveness of Value-Added Taxes of state administrations render it a broader appeal. Presenting successful models from across the globe, A Dialogue composes a veritable picture of tax reform for India to keenly consider.Printed Pages: 348. 101812

Ebrahim Alkazi: Directing Art
Mapin Publishing; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789385360107; Hardcover; New; New; 
A doyen of India’s art and theatre scenes, Ebrahim Alkazi has been credited with garnering worldwide visibility for Indian art. Directing Art explores how his unique way of locating Indian art within a broader framework led to several formal engagements for artists such as MF Husain, FN Souza, SH Raza, Gieve Patel, and Anish Kapoor, among others. This volume brings together over 400 paintings, many of them exhibited at Art Heritage, and previously unpublished, thereby tracing Alkazi’s landmark exhibitions of European modern art in 1954, a result of his and his wife Roshen’s passionate engagement with contemporary artistic production. Featuring several conversations and essays, Directing Art provides a context for the Alkazis’ participation in the evolution of a transnational history of modernism, and their long association with the Progressive Artists Group. Also included is an intimate portrayal by Amal Allana, Alkazi’s daughter, who talks of her father’s passion for art and theatre, his revolutionary multi-disciplinary paradigm, and the bohemian world of Mumbai’s post-colonial art scene.A chronicle of the remarkable life and work of Ebrahim Alkazi, Directing Art is an invaluable education in Indian art.

The Torana in Indian and Southeast Asian Architecture
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8124605343; First Edition; Hardcover with a Slipcase; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
The present work discusses in depth the subject of toranas (arched portals or festoons) in the ancient and medieval architecture of South- and South-east Asia, with special emphasis on Indian representations. Their antiquity and rationale; their continued presence in association with stupas, caves, temples, mosques, cities, forts, and palaces; their myriad forms and transformations; and their aesthetic and symbolic relationship to the structure in question are analyzed stage-by-stage in this book. The rich corpus of toranas included here has been critically and comparatively analyzed in relation to traditional practice, as well as in the light of the medieval architectural treatises, historical records, and other literary sources. The approach is ‘micro’ in the sense of being focused on a specific architectural element but ‘macro’ in its regional and temporal span. In addition, the exposition reveals the grammar as well as the manifold visual formulations of the torana as representative of the basic principles of traditional Indian architectural ornament: integral to the structure, functionally apt, aesthetically significant, and visually evocative, with sound and sophisticated design principles. The text is richly illustrated, bringing together material scattered over several well-known as well as remote sites, museums, and archival collections. Whereas a major part of this book details the journey of the torana in ancient and medieval India, the section on early beginnings also includes references from Pakistan and Afghanistan, and the final chapter surveys, with a view to compare, parallel yet distinct expressions in Cambodia, Thailand, Champa, Indonesia, Myanmar, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.

Tracing an Indian Diaspora: Contexts, Memories, Representations
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8178298333; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The concept of diaspora has been much debated during the past decade in terms of the essential and additional features that go with it, arguing which groups or communities could beuld not be designated as diaspora. The Indian diaspora today, with a strong community constituting more than 20 million and spreading across a hundred countries, continues to grow in size and making its transnational presence felt. This collection of essays traces some of the plurality with the Indian context as well as in the context of globalization, and transnationalism. The book discusses the migratory movements that have led to the formation of the Indian diaspora and formation to diasporic practices-the ways and means of remembering and enacting diasporic belonging and the sites and spaces where such narratives of belonging are performed and how these issues are played out through texts, and rituals such as pilgrimages and building temples.

Sanskrit Natikas
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1986; 8121500753; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The present work deals with the delineation of natika. India has witnessed three distinct forms of entertainment based on Nrtta, Nrtya and Natya. The form of entertainment based on Nrtya, our dramaturgists called Uparupakas and the one based on Natya, they designated as Rupakas. Dasarupaka is called Rasabhinaya or Vakyarthabhinaya, but Uparupakas make music sometimes predominant and generally omit or subordinate vacika abhinaya or speech as a result of which there is full scope for Abhinaya. They are therefore not called drama (Rupaka) strictly, but only Nrtya depicting only Bhava, and they are therefore Bhavabhinaya or Padarthabhinaya. Pure Abhinaya or rendering of a small connected theme or a number of isolated Muktaka themes through the art of gesture, aided by music is the chief characteristic which distinguishes the latter i.e. Uparupaka. Therefore inadequate Vacika, Aharya and Sattvika produce Nrtya varieties. Natya emphasizes all and especially Sattvika. It tries to have as much Lokadharni, realism or natural conditions, as possible, whereas in Nrtya, there is a maximum amount of idealism, Natyadharni. The dominant Rasa in the Natika is Srngara (love). To evoke the Srngara in the hearts of the Sahrdayas is the purpose of the Natika for which various sentiments are described. Because women predominate in the Natika great importance is given to the physical, the natural, (i.e. Liba, Vilasa etc.), and involuntary graces (i.e. Sobha, Kanti etc.) of the young women. Therefore Natika is said to be characterised by Lalitabhinaya (graceful acting). Printed Pages: 246. 015722

22371 Pashupatinath Shastri
Introduction to the Purva Mimamsa (Second Edition)
Chaukhamba Oriental Studies/Chaukhamba Orientalia; New Delhi, India; 1980; Second Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
It was in 1923 that this Book by our late lamented father Dr. Pashupatinath Shastri, M. A.3 B. L., Ph. D.3 Vidyasudhakara was first published in Calcutta. The book was submitted for the doctorate degree of the University of Calcutta and the award came in 1924. Hardly four years had passed when The Author left this world on February 4, 1928. It was rather unfortunate that the book could not be printed in a well-equipped printing-press with the result that quite a number of mistakes could not be avoided. Particular mention should be made of the fact that the diacritical marks so indispensable for a book of this nature could not be offered. Nevertheless, we were gratified to see that the book went rapidly out of print due to the interest shown by the academic world. Decades later, our younger brother. Dr. Kailash-nath Bhattacharya, M. A. (Mathematics), M. A. (Statistics), B. L., D. Phil., Calcutta University, expressed his desire to us that the book should be reprinted in the interest of the present generation of scholars working in the field of the Mlmarhsa. We are very happy to record that Dr. Vachaspati Upadhyaya, M. A., Sastri, D.Phil., D. Litt., Lecturer in Sanskrit at the University of Delhi and one of our best students in Mimamsa philosophy could negotiate with the present publishers and persuade them to print the book. The present printers and publishers have not spared themselves in seeing the book through the press with great care and we offer our thanks to them which they eminently deserve. It may be mentioned that this book of our father was the first one written for the doctorate degree by a member of the Department of Sanskrit at the University of Calcutta. The learned author took his M. A. degree twice, in Veda and Mimamsa, in the years 1910 and 1911. With the creation of the Post-graduate Department in Arts at the University, he was appointed lecturer in Veda and Mimamsa and continued to be there until the time of his death in 1928, at the early age of 41. During his tenure of office as lecturer, he earned an enviable reputation amongst his colleagues and his devotion to the study of Sanskrit endeared himself to all lovers of Sanskrit in our country. It may not be out of place to mention here that there were very few scholars in those days, who had worked in the subject of his choice. Among the Indians, Dr. Ganganath Jha and Mahamahopadhyaya Kuppusvami Sastri had their contributions to this field of study and it was Professor A. B. Keith whose Karma-Mimamsa was the only-respectable treatise written by a scholar from abroad. It will be worthwhile mentioning in this Context that many of the cardinal texts in the Mimamsa that have been published in the second and third quarters of the present century, were available in manuscripts only, preserved in the various libraries of the country and were, therefore, not easily accessible to scholars who contemplated to utilize them in the course of their investigations. Another point worth mentioning is that the tradition of Mimamsa study had been dying out in this part of the country landing our scholars in the difficulty of understanding and interpreting the intentions of the masters on the subject. It must be said that notwithstanding all that is mentioned above, our author could bring out in such A Clear and lucid manner the deeper implications of some of the most important topics of the Purva Mimamsa. His deliberations in Chapter Three on God, Atman and Liberation bear eloquent testimony to his critical acumen and rare power of evaluation of topics of a complex nature. It is also gratifying to note that the author has brought his knowledge of Hindu Law to satisfy the inquisitive minds to know how the maxims of the Purva Mimamsa could be applied to it. It is not desirable on our part to review the excellences in the writings of the author as that would not be in good taste for us who happen to be his beloved sons. But, before we conclude, it is only in the fitness of things that we must acknowledge the most kindly assistance rendered by Panditaraja K. Subrahmanya Sastri in checking up the references to original texts to our complete satisfaction. He is a scholar of outstanding eminence and he is equally at home in all the three systems of Indian philosophy, Mimamsa, Vedanta and Nyaya.Printed Pages: 246. 100701

Mohandas K. Gandhi: A Biography
Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 8184950470; Softcover; New; 
Mohandas K. Gandhi, known as Mahatma (great soul) Gandhi, is a revered figure worldwide for his nonviolent action to free India from British rule. His iconic status endures in the United States, through his influence on Martin Luther King, Jr., and in popular culture, including quotations, a blockbuster film, and interest in Hindu spirituality and practices. Readers will discover how Gandhi came to be a member of the exalted pantheon of men for the ages. They will follow him from his family’s home in the provinces to an early arranged marriage, solo sojourn in England to prepare for a law career, and growth from a timid new barrister in South Africa to India’s foremost negotiator with the British power structure. He is shown evolving from a loyal British subject to become the champion of Home Rule for India often inciting illegal actions to get himself and his supporters arrested to further the cause, and risking his life with his famous hunger strikes.Printed Pages: 184 with DVD. 105435

Word and World: Practice and the Foundations of Language
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2004; 0521537444; First Edition; Paperback; New; 228 x 152 Mm 
This important book proposes a new account of the nature of language, founded upon an original interpretation of Wittgenstein. The authors deny the existence of a direct referential relationship between words and things. Rather, the link between language and world is a two-stage one, in which meaning is used and in which a natural language should be understood as fundamentally a collection of socially devised and maintained practices. Arguing against the philosophical mainstream descending from Frege and Russell to Quine, Davidson, Dummett, McDowell, Evans, Putnam, Kripke and others, the authors demonstrate that discarding the notion of reference does not entail relativism or semantic nihilism. A provocative re-examination of the interrelations of language and social practice, this book will interest not only philosophers of language but also linguists, psycholinguists, students of communication and all those concerned with the nature and acquisition of human linguistic capacities. • Radical re-interpretation of nature of language that takes an unfashionable new view of the subject • Book draws on work of Wittgenstein whose work remains widely influential in general, though not in philosophy of language itself Contents Introduction; Part I. Scepticism and Language: 1. The prison-house of language; 2. Referential realism; 3. Out of the prison-house; Part II. Names and Their Bearers: 4. Russell’s principle and Wittgenstein’s slogan; 5.

The 5 Things We Need to Be Happy and Money isn’t One of Them
Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 8184952686; Softcover; New; 
Looking for happiness?Try counting to five and then look again!What do you think will make you happy?A higher-paying job?A longer vacation?A Caribbean cruise?Better health?A slimmer, trimmer you?Think again,says Patricia Lorenz. As a single mother of four children, struggling to make ends meet, Lorenz discovered that happiness was all around her, just waiting to be enjoyed: sharing laughs and potato chips, or turning a stay-at-home-subzero day into a surprise formal tea party or a bike ride into a prayer service on the go. Lorenz knows the things that make her happy, and she’ll share how they can make you happy, too. This how-to of happiness will show you how love, laughter, a passion for what you do, a can-do spirit and a heart full of faith can put you on the road to living your dreams. And money has nothing to do with it!.Printed Pages: 240. 105276

None of Us is as Good as All of Us: How Mcdonald'S Prospers By Embracing Inclusion and Diversity
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8126528257; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
None of Us is As Good As All of Us tells the first insider story from any major corporation on how diversity within the organization translates into success in business. Although everyone knows McDonald's, very few people realize that its overwhelming, worldwide sensation is due, in part, to its commitment to inclusion and diversity throughout its three-legged stool of owner/operators, suppliers, and employees. Patricia Sowell Harris has interviewed more than 60 key players who brought diversity alive at McDonald's; and she makes the company's remarkable story accessible to all readers. Each of the accounts of franchisees, employees, and suppliers who were an essential part of the evolution of diversity at McDonald's is more awe-inspiring than the last. Harris's lessons serve as a template on how to embrace and value people of different races, religions, languages and other factors, and turn those unique traits into unifying business achievement.Printed Pages: 192. 104764

Mosques of Cochin
Mapin Publishing; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8189995243; Softcover; New; 
Cochin—a historic port city on the Malabar Coast in Kerala—has for centuries remained a centre of maritime trade along the Indian Ocean. These commercial contacts brought with them the earliest influences of Christianity, Judaism and Islam to India, resulting in a cosmopolitan mosaic of people in the region. Against this backdrop, some of the very first Indian mosques were built, located in compounds replete with coconut palms. These tropical mosques reveal a distinctive legacy in form, acknowledging and celebrating the place, history, and building techniques of the region.Mosques of Cochin documents the surviving vernacular mosques, which stand as powerful and visible expressions of Islam’s integration into the culture of Malabar. Many of these fine, old mosques have recently been demolished or remodeled, and replaced by generic concrete structures. In highlighting the beauty and historical importance of the mosque architecture of Kerala, the book aims at bringing greater recognition to these remarkable structures constructed by merchants, labourers and artisans.

Finding the Demon’s Fiddle: On the Trail of the Ravanhattha
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789385152023; Hardcover; New; New; 
A European arrives in India and comes upon an ancient mythical instrument. This instrument, the Ravanhattha, is not only the earliest ancestor of the western violin, but was also, according to the early versions of the Ramayana, invented by the Great Demon King, Ravana.Who exactly was Ravana? Was he just the vengeful abductor of Sita and the sworn enemy of Lord Ram? Or was he the wise and compassionate ruler of Lanka? Could Ravana be responsible for the birth of Zen Buddhism in Japan? How did Ravana contribute to the invention of Chinese Kung Fu? As the author’s fascination for the Ravanhattha and his growing obsession with the Demon King himself take over, he is drawn into a world of desert musician-priests, obscure traditions and vibrant characters. This intimate and often humorous account of Patrick Jered’s visit to India and Sri Lanka, reads like an engaging page-turner of a novel. The author skilfully interweaves a personal travel narrative with the history, scripture and arcane religions surrounding the Ravanhattha, drawing together several tales that all eventually reach their own surprising conclusions. 109708
