Spiritual Life and Liberation
Parimal Publications; Delhi, India; 2011; 8171103820; Hardcover; New; New; 
Indian School of Spirituality (Adyatmavada) is the beacon light in this materialistic age. The Vedas are the foundation of all the orthodox Schools of Indian Spirituality. The School of Vedanta (Uttara Mimamsa), which is affiliated to the end portion of the Vedas, is now widely accepted by the spiritual seekers. There are three schools of Vedanta viz., Dvaita (Dualism), Vishista Dvaita (Qualified non-Dualism) and Advaita (Non-dualism). Advaita Vedanta is the culmination of all philosophy. The goal of spiritual life is liberation of the soul. Spiritual life manifests the divinity of the soul in the mortal body. Liberation is possible only through purification of inner being and not through rational analysis of science. Spirituality is beyond the sense and therefore its approach is intuitive and not analytical. The goal of spiritual life is liberation of the soul.

Sandhya Vandanam, Gayatri Vidya and Enlightenment
Parimal Publications; Delhi, India; 2010; 8171103618; Hardcover; New; New; 
The intellect (Buddhi) is the most important instrument in self-evolution of the soul. Intellect is the discriminative faculty which reveals the ephemeral nature of things around and brings faith in the eternal nature of the soul. The one, whose intellect has been carried away by the violent sense-organs, quickly perishes. Therefore, purification and enlightenment of the intellect is the prime means for self-protection. Sandhya Vandanam of body, life and mind and then enlightens the intellect through Gayatri Upasana. This Book presents the theory and practice of Sandhya Vandanam and Gayatri Vidya which facilitates the entry of the soul into the plane of Vijnana. The purpose of this book is to reveal the various planes of soul-existence and not merely a mechanical performance of rituals. This book brings about a synthesis of Karma, Upasana and Jnana by rendering English translation of three minor Upanishads dealing with Gayatri Vidya. The ultimate aim is to eliminate all desires from the intellect and confer Brahma Vidya on the seekers of liberation. The author has been an earnest seeker of the spiritual knowledge for more than a decade. Having completed his graduation in Engineering from National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirapalli, Tamil Nadu, he went on to pursue Masters Degree in Business Administration from Sri Sathya Sai University, Prasanthi Nilayam, Anantapur District, Andhra Pradesh.

Thanjavur: A Cultural History
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8189738623; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 8.5 x 11 Inches 
In this fascinating study in words and images Pradeep Chakravarthy and Vikram Sathyanathan narrate the cultural history of Thanjavur starting from its early days of grandeur in the Chola empire when the Chola king Raja Raja I built the Rajarajeswaram Temple now known as Brihadeeswara temple which celebrates its 1000th year of consecration in 2010.They weave together known and unknown histories of various rulers of Thanjavur - the Cholas, the Nayaks, the Marathas and the British, into a rich tapestry of cultural heritage that is Thanjavur. They reveal to the reader the treasure house that is Sarasvathi Mahal Library, lead the reader into the narrow lanes or sandhus where the painters who created the now famous Thanjavur style lived along with bangle-sellers, the textile merchants, perfumers and the devadasis, They also take the reader along a trip on the fertile river banks of Kaveri where Carnatic music and Bharatanatyam as we know them today were created and flourished alongside drama forms like the bhagavata mela and yakshagana. The temples, the palace, the bronzes, the paintings, the frescoes, cuisine, the weapons of war, ivory dolls, the kalamkaris, and literary genres like the abhyudayamu, prabandham and kuravanji are all brushstrokes that make up a colourful painting that tells the story of the city of Thanjavur.

Kodaikanal: Vanishing Heritage of an Island in the Sky
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 9789383098569; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Palni Hills, including Kodaikanal and the surrounding villages, is a very special part of the Western Ghats, with its own distinctive flora and bird life, especially in the upper plateau. The climate of the area is as effective a barrier to species’ migration as the waters of the ocean are to an island. That is why we refer to these hills as an ‘island in the sky’. The rare and precious natural heritage of this ‘island’ needs to be preserved and nurtured. The Palni Hills receive the heaviest rainfall in southern Tamil Nadu. Water supplies from the Palnis are thus crucial for farmers down below, and we highlight the need to safeguard this vital catchment. The heritage buildings in Kodaikanal have been built with local material–stone quarried from the hills, red clay from the mountains as mortar, and local wood. The ground-hugging elevations of the old buildings blend beautifully with the hill landscape, and carry the much needed message of a nature friendly architecture. The only way to preserve the heritage is to educate and sensitise residents and visitors to appreciate the delicate balance and understand the symbiotic nature of its existence–flora, fauna, and human. Only such an awareness will ensure that development efforts are environmentally suitable and sustainable. The contributors, representing INTACH, Kodaikanal Chapter, hope that this book will contribute to enlightened management of this ecologically vulnerable and beautiful part of India.Printed Pages: 236 with 197 colour & 7 b/w photographs. 106570

Kailash Mansarovar
Abhinav Publications/Kaveri Books; New Delhi, India; 8170173361; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
"The Mt. Kailash-Lake Manasarovar region, in the west of Himalayas, is a wonderful place, especially for those fascinated by the stories and tales of gods and domons. Mt. Kailash is the only place of pilgrimage in the world where four mighty religious communities-Hindus, Buddhists, Jains, and Tibetan Bonpas perform their religious rites. For Shaivites, the worshippers of Lord Shiva, Kailash is the most sacred of all the Hindu pilgrimages. Lake Manasarovar was formed from the mind of Lord Brahma, and hence called Manasa-sarovar. The holy lake Manasarovar, through its everlasting enchantment, washes away the sorrow of all mortal beings throughout the ages. 107950

M.F. Husain: A Pictorial Tribute
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2012; 819209121X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 30 x 30 Cm 
A master painter, a colourful persona, a filmmaker with a difference, a lover of the most expensive cars on earth, a painter who preferred to walk barefoot—Maqbool Fida Husain was an enigma even to those who knew him best. M.F. Husain’s was an inspiring story of rags-to-riches. Through it all, he remained a true artist, whether painting hoardings, designing furniture or making films. That Husain was one of the greatest artists in the world is beyond doubt. His expression of creativity can be seen not only in his paintings but also in the love he had for the places and people that shaped his legendary status. In this richly photographed book, Pradeep Chandra pays tribute to M.F. Husain, an artist who he has been photographing for decades. Chandra paints a picture of the man behind the artist in an attempt to understand the legendary painter through his work, installations, cinema, family, friends, the women who inspired him and his undying love of art. It celebrates the life of a great artist and a great man, whose passing has left a lacuna in the world of art and in the lives of those who love and admire him.

22718 Pradeep Damodaran
Borderlands: Travels Across India's Boundaries
Hachette India/Prakash Books; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789351950233; Hardcover; New; New; 13 x 22 Cm 
For most residents of India'’s bustling metros and big towns, nationality and citizenship are privileges that are often taken for granted. The country’s periphery, however, is dotted with sleepy towns and desolate villages whose people, simply by having more in common with citizens of neighbouring nations than with their own, have to prove their Indian identity every day. It is these specks on the country's map that Pradeep Damodaran rediscovers as he travels across India’s borders for a little more than a year, experiencing life in far-flung areas that rarely feature in mainstream conversations. In Borderlands, he recounts his encounters with the war-weary fishermen of Dhanushkodi at the southernmost tip of Tamil Nadu, who live in fear both of the Indian Coast Guard and the Sri Lankan navy; farmers in Hussainiwala, a village on Punjab’s border with Pakistan, who are unwilling to build concrete houses for fear of them being destroyed in the ever looming war; Tamil traders of Moreh, a town straddling the Manipur-Myanmar border, who pay bribes to at least ten different militant organizations so they can safely conduct their business; and ex-servicemen in Campbell Bay who were resettled there three generations ago and have long been forgotten by the mainland.From Minicoy in Lakshadweep to Taki in West Bengal, Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh to Raxaul in Bihar, Damodaran’s compelling narrative reinforces the idea that, in India, a land of contrasts and contradictions, beauty and diversity, conflict comes in many forms.

Indian Ocean Challenges: A Quest for Cooperative Solutions
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904657; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Indian Ocean Region (IOR) is of immense strategic significance on the global maritime map – not just on account of its centrality to the current trade and energy flows, but also because of the extreme disparities and inherent volatility of the region. The region faces an array of security challenges, both traditional and non-traditional. These include security of SLOCs, the problem of piracy, the possibility of renewed terrorism at and from the sea and the pervasive smuggling of people, narcotics and arms. The narrative of regional maritime security is also characterized by oscillating economic growth, growing military presence and a rapidly deteriorating ecological balance in the Indian Ocean.A stand-out feature of the IOR is the lack of correspondence between nations on issues concerning ‘security’. While using the high seas for trade, transportation of energy, major powers have tended to neglect the impact of the economic activities on the sea itself. In contrast, smaller regional countries and island states with developing economies have, at best, been able to use only those resources of the sea which are vital to their survival.A stand-out feature of the IOR is the lack of correspondence between nations on issues concerning ‘security’.

Geopolitics of the Indo-Pacific
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789383649099; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In recent years, the descriptive term ‘Indo-Pacific’ has entered the geo-strategic lexicon as a substitute for the more established expression ‘Asia-Pacific’. Defined as an integrated strategic system that best captures the shift in power and influence from the West to the East, the concept has dominated strategic debates and discussions, gaining rapidly in currency and acceptance. Popular though the term has become, its strategic context and underlying logic are still sharply contested. While proponents of the ‘Indo-Pacific’ advance compelling arguments in its favour, the debate over whether it is a valid construct, is not quite settled. Consequently, it is yet to gain full acceptance among regional analysts and policy makers who appear unsure about embracing the idea without any qualifying caveats. Even so, the Indo-Pacific has emerged as a significant strategic space and a theatre of great-power competition. From a maritime security perspective, its importance as a geo-economic hub is accentuated by the growing presence of non-traditional threats. Piracy, terrorism, gun running, illegal fishing, trafficking, global warming and natural disasters represent challenges to maritime security that are inherently transnational in nature – where dynamics in one part of the system influence events in another, necessitating coordinated security operations by maritime forces and strategic relationships between stakeholder states. Papers put together in this book seek to appraise the Indo-Pacific, by examining the concept holistically, deciphering the trends that impact maritime security in the region and identifying its emerging patterns. Apart from examining the inherent logic underpinning the concept, these provide perspectives on security in the Indo-Pacific region, evaluate the strategic implications of competition, conflict and instability in the region, and bring out the operational implications of using a frame of reference that combines two contiguous albeit disparate maritime theatres.Printed Pages: 158. 104270

Indian and American Perspectives on Technological Developments in the Maritime Domain and Their Strategic Implications in the Indian Ocean Region
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904770; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The maritime domain, hosting the highways of global prosperity—through trade, industrial raw material and energy links—rates high in its potential for conflict. As the global pendulum of economic vibrancy swings eastwards, the Indian Ocean Region (IOR) has been receiving increasing attention from all actors, state as well as non-state ones, and now presents itself in sharp focus as one of the volatile seascapes on this earth. The navies operating in the region will, therefore, need to depend on high technology and associated doctrines and procedures, so as to effectively deal with the wide spectrum of challenges therein. It will also become incumbent upon such littoral states as can afford the high cost of technology, to catch up so as to maintain their relevance in the great game being played out in their very own backyard.The United States as a leader in inventing and exploiting technology sets its own benchmarks in internalization of advanced technologies to undertake maritime missions at and from the sea in support of its military operations ashore. China, on the other hand, has been striving towards achieving asymmetric war-fighting capabilities, supported by other developing technologies as well as core capabilities like the Beidou position-fixing system, which would be central to network-centric operations, including missile guidance systems. As the IOR increasingly transforms into an arena of extra-regional power play, the implications of technologically enabled confrontations and their impact on resident states are poised to weigh in on a scale never imagined before. There is thus, a greater need for India to gain in-depth knowledge of and develop a perspective on advanced technology sensors, weapons, supporting infrastructures, doctrines and futuristic concepts in the maritime domain and their potential as strategic game changers in the IOR.Printed Pages: 176. 104304

Lokayata/Carvaka: A Philosophical Inquiry
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2015; 0199460639; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Philosophy in the Indian tradition is often believed to be essentially religious in character. Even schools like Nyaya and Buddhism correlate their logic and epistemology with a transcendent religious goal. Yet, there exists a purely secular and rational exercise within the Indian philosophical traditions—the Lokayata/Carvaka school of philosophy. Owing to a lack of substantial literary sources, Lokayata has received only scant attention from scholars till now. This book is the first attempt to examine the philosophical energies inherent in the scattered Lokayata/Carvaka literature. Through a critical analysis firmly grounded in textual evidence, the author presents a systematic philosophical development of the pluralistic interpretation of this school. Claiming that the diversity in the Lokayata school is greater and much more complex than generally imagined, the book explores the cognitive scepticism of Jayarasi, the extreme empiricism popularly attributed to Carvaka, and the mitigated empiricism in its two versions: positivist and common-sense-oriented. It discusses these in a wider philosophical perspective in terms of their implications and their Western parallels. Printed Pages: 240. 104495

Drawing from his extensive business management experience, Pradip Chanda turns traditional wisdom on its head when he proposes that brand loyalty is inversely proportional to the income and education levels of the 'knowledge consumer'. He examines how and why brands have become strategic assets, traces the evolution of knowledge consumer and what can companies do to protect equity of the brands they have nurtured over decades. A new approach to building brand loyalty that gives marketers a competitive edge in today's high-tech, high-stakes and brand-hostile environment.

Foundation of Indian Musicology

"This book is an attempt at a rational reconstruction of the fundamental principles of Indian Musicology and tries to indicate how the basic aesthetic appeal of the Ragas could be best interpreted. Challenging the idea that Indian music is a closed orthodox set of so-called rigid rules and principles, it treats Indian music as rooted in man’s spiritual vision. Music unfolds this vision spontaneously through proportionate note-sequences and it is the unending pilgrimage of man, which opens richer and greater horizons where man can find his home to be a hernmitage of abiding peace and blissful joy. 107985

History of Science and Philosophy of Science: A Historical Perspective of the Evolution of Ideas in Science (History of Science, Philosophy, and Culture in Indian Civilization: Vol. XIII, Part 6)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 8131719308; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
History of Science and Philosophy of Science, a primarily interdisciplinary study, deals with the historical and philosophical perspectives of science and explores the mutuality of the relations between the two disciplines. To present the study in a reader-friendly format, it has been divided into two parts, with the first volume (Part 6) dedicated to the ‘history’ of science and the second volume (Part 7) to the ‘philosophy’ of science. The first volume, History of Science and Philosophy of Science: A Historical Perspective of the Evolution of Ideas in Science, seeks to present a history of science where science is believed to proceed along with the operation of a number of mechanisms that are instrumental to its growth, thus making science a part of a creative culture. This part works out the relation not between history and the history of science, but between science and the history of science. Though the volume focuses mainly on physics and mathematics, it also includes essays on life sciences and consciousness studies. The order of essays is guided not by chronology but by a philosophical interpretation of the development of major reforms and revisions in the field of science both in India and abroad. Some authors have paid full attention to Indian science and its logic, while some others have preferred to deal with Western science. Presented in a fairly non-technical language and readily accessible even to non-specialists, these volumes will be of interest to researchers and well-informed general readers.

This book is a critical study of the political economy of communications in India.

It deals with a variety of issues that are key to understanding the political economy of communication—from intellectual property to audio-visual trade and media ownership, liberalisation, privatisation, and media politics.

Strong Religion, Zealous Media: Christian Fundamentalism and Communication in India
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8178298341; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Strong Religion, Zealous Media: Christian Fundamentalism and Communication in India is the first in-depth cultural and social analysis of the growth of conservative forms of Christianity within the Protestant tradition in India and the many ways in which these new churches use the media. Arguing that Christian broadcasting needs to be seen as an essential aspect of a `muscular` Christianity that has increasingly colonised globalising cities such as Chennai, the book concludes with a strong validation of multi-religious India and the need for a robust inter-faith media response to combat religious fundamentalism. This is a highly recommended reading for students, researchers and social scientists involved in religion and media issues, religion departments, seminaries, civil society involved in inter-faith issues and all those who are interested in exploring the politics of religion in the subcontinent.

Jugnu Rani, a tiny firefly, ponders over her insignificance and witnesses the gradual distancing between trees and humankind.

One day, when the forest is in danger, Jugnu Rani discovers the light within her and finds her purpose. Soon no one is afraid of the dark anymore.Rendered in the Mithila style of painting, this story is a charming introduction to human relationship with the environment.

The Politics of Climate Change and the Global Crisis: Mortgaging Our Future
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125045031; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Irreversible, catastrophic climate change represents the greatest threat to human kind's survival today. Relentlessly rising greenhouse gas emissions are heating up the atmosphere. Planet Earth is hurtling towards disaster, with rapidly melting ice-caps and glaciers, rising sea levels, rainfall pattern changes, and a breakdown of fragile climate balances. The earth can cope with maximum global warming of 1.5-2 degree C. But temperatures are set to rise way beyond this-unless greenhouse emissions are drastically reduced by 2020.Yet1 the world has failed to reach agreement on this. Industrialised countries, which are primarily responsible for climate change, balk at cutting their emissions. They continue to occupy climate space at the expense of the developing countries' climate-vulnerable poor people. Equally unfairly, their emissions-reduction pledges are lower than the poor countries’. The climate crisis thus aggravates the global developmental crisis. It is also intimately linked through the prevalent iniquitous development model to grave economic, social and political crises in evidence globally. This unique book has a dual focus: impacts of climate change, and the politics of the international climate negotiations; and second, lndia as an example of an 'emerging economy' major polluter, which can potentially both aid or obstruct the fight against climate change. It analyses the role of the new BASIC (Brazil, South Africa, India, China) grouping and the short-term calculations of other major players in the climate talks. Yet, there are alternatives to this dismal situation, based on equity, resource conservation, curbs on luxury consumption, promotion of renewable energy and new patterns of production and consumption which sustain low-carbon development. What the global effort lacks is candid acknowledgement of the need for a qualitative change in the growth model and the will to bring it about through democratic popular participation. Written lucidly, The Politics of Climate Change and the Global Crisis: Mortgaging Our Future is mandatory reading for social scientists, environmentalists, civil servants, social activists and environmentally conscious citizens.

22757 Prafulla Roy
In the Shadow of the Sun
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8174363335; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 8.5 x 5.5 Inches 
Here are sixteen of the finest of Prafulla Roy’s short stories, stories made fascinating merely by the realities of everyday life and the quirkiness of human character. This combination of the mundane with the odd – sometimes the exotic – is Roy’s simple recipe for great literary interest. We have a jungle-beater-cum-stray-dog-catcher and his role in the birth of a child; we have two strangers enjoying a passing moment of love after a vicious fight with an animal over food; we have a little girl – the daughter of a prostitute – who, in her own way, reaches the moon with Neil Armstrong. Then there are stories of the dreams – of beggars, of bird-catchers, of a tiger man and of a would-be film extra. There are stories of self-sacrifice on the part of those who have nothing, and of the exploitation of the weak by those who have everything. There are hypocrites and idealists, holy men and whores. There are the bidi-makers who do burlesque mimes, and there are small town thugs and manipulators. We meet the pathetic down-and-out who cannot get away from his roots, and we feel for the untouchable woman desperate for the protection of her seventh husband. In all, we have a colourful, tragic, heroic, amazing vista of underprivileged life in rural India. WINNER OF THE SAHITYA AKADEMI AWARD FOR LITERATURE 2004 Printed Pages: 247. 003360

22758 Prafulla Roy (Author) & John W. Hood (Tr.)
Freedom's Ransom
IndiaInk/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8186939407; Softcover; New; 
In rural India, two worlds co-exist in extreme contrast to one another. There is the world of the big landowners, extraordinarily wealthy and hungry for power, and there is the world of the underclass - mostly untouchable landless labourers, toiling for a mere pittance and living in virtual thraldom. Prafulla Roy's contemporary masterpiece, translated here as Freedom's Ransom, encompasses these two worlds as he develops the intertwining story of a rich landholder's quest for political power and the touching tale of a young dalit couple and their dream of freedom from years of bonded labour. With remarkable candour and sensitivity, Prafulla Roy depicts the world of the rural underclass in what is a richly detailed social document, a critique of contemporary India and - as in all his works - a powerful story.

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1993; 8121505453; Reprint; Cloth; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
Not a few of the specialists in the field of history of Indian philosophy are of the opinion that the philosophical significance of then Bhagavadgita has often been overestimated. But even they cannot deny that it classes among the most important Sanskrit texts in terms of the History of Ideas and the influence exercised by it even on outstanding intellectual figures of pre-independent and modern India and that it is perhaps the most frequently read work of the whole of Sanskrit literature, in India as well as abroad. Therefore the necessity of making again available Prahlad C. Divanji's Critical Word-Index to the Bhagavadgita hardly needs justification, all the more as it is based on a number of different editions of the Gita. There is no tool like this index, of equal importance both to the professional Sanskritist as well as to all those interested in this text and wishing to read and understand the original itself.

Rgvediya Sankhayayan Rudradhayay
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2009; 818550315X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
During Shiva worship, Nandi worship and other Shaiva rituals, the recitation of Rudradhyaya has been essential in both Shrauta and Smarta traditions. Any person reading and reciting traditionally a particular branch of the Vedas should also necessarily recite the particular Rudradhyaya as assigned to that particular branch. Till today only Rudradhyaya related to the Shakala Samhita of the Rigveda was available. For the first time a Rudradhyaya from Rigveda of Shankhayana Shakha, which has been preserved and recited by the Nagara brahmanas of Baaswara district, in southern Rajasthan is being published. This edition of Rudradhyaya is superior in many aspects than the ones available earlier as this gives an exposure to the most superior form and tradition of recitation.Printed Pages: 112. 100482

Essays on India’s Political Economy
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789383649280; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This monograph is an attempt to understand the symbiotic relationship between politics and economy in India since independence. A few essays are presented to delineate this relationship in simple, non-technical language. But a discerning reader could easily decipher a specific interpretation throughout the text: the process of economic transformation is viewed as a function of the decision makers’ changing calculus of political pay-offs.Indian Political Economy is divided into three phases: (1) Nationalist Political Economy (1947-68); (2) Populist Political Economy (1969-1990) and (3) Competitive Political Economy (1991- ). The grand coalition in the first phase enabled the state to play an interventionist role and to estimate payoffs for the entire country; the minimum-winning coalition in the polarised politics of the second phase played a redistributive game and carefully calculated payoffs of its own supporters only and the uncertainty resulting from a fragmented politics in the third phase did not allow any party to be assured of a winning coalition and, therefore, made it difficult for any political party to predict political payoffs. Economic reforms of the 1990s were the result of this political uncertainty. The radical changes in economic policy transformed contemporary politics. A running theme in these essays is that while political actors face uncertainty in a competitive political economy, the citizens, as consumers of public policies, are further empowered to question, accept or reject any policy initiative. Citizens and groups are able to assert their rights and, if necessary, throw out the non-performers. Rights dominate over welfare in this new policy regime.Printed Pages: 104. 104254

Reading Culture: Theories, Praxis, Politics
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2006; 076193474X; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
The theory, methods and politics of cultural studies are examined in this book which is concerned with the ways in which public culture reflects the relations between identities, race, gender and class. Adapting a range of theories and approaches, the author demonstrates how a cultural form effectively disseminates meanings - a political act - by marginalizing certain identities, norms, modes of thinking and knowledges while valuing others. The book covers topics as diverse as comic book superheroes, patriotic songs in Hindi films, the projection of 'authenticity' in tourist brochures and the poetics of display in museums.

Virtual Worlds: Culture and Politics in the Age of Cybertechnology
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0761932291; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This interdisciplinary cultural study of the new technologies discusses cyberculture as it mediates, and in turn is mediated by, the contexts of globalisation, politics, medical science and war, and the realms of everyday life such as learning, identity, consumption, and leisure. It pays attention to common and visible expressions of technoculture - including music videos, niche marketing, literature, and cosmetic surgery - in order to highlight its distinguishing features. Using a range of insights from theorists such as Donna Haraway, Stuart Hall, Manuel Castells, Paul Virilio and Katherine Hayles, Virtual Worlds explores the dissemination of cybertechnology into the social and political fields.

Citizenship and Identity in the Age of Surveillance
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2015; 1107080584; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is a study of cultures of surveillance from CCTV to genetic data-gathering and the new forms of subjectivity and citizenship that are forged in such cultures. It studies data bodies and space as domains within which this subjectivity of the vulnerable individual emerges. The book also proposes that we can see a shift within cultures of surveillance where from active participation in the process of surveilling a witness-citizen emerges. The book therefore seeks to alter surveillance as a mere top-down system instead arguing that surveillance is also a mode of engagement with the world enabling trust accountability and eventually a responsible humanitarianism.Printed Pages:240. 101486

States of Sentiment: Exploring the Cultures of Emotion
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8125041990; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book proposes that our responses to various situations, events and representations are not entirely private, individual and internal. They have a crucial social dimension. Emotions are a result of the internalisation of cultural codes and discourses that inform, and even determine the appropriateness or inappropriateness of emotional responses. We see a terrorist as a threat, a cyclone as worrying, a rags-to-riches story as a feel-good moment. We mourn the sudden death of Michael Jackson, we rejoice in the victory of a triumphant Tendulkar and we react with horror and shock to 9/11. All of these are emotional responses to specific representational strategies that present these people and events in particular ways. These strategies in turn construct our emotional relations to the events and people. Exactly how sentiments of care, passion, desire, pleasure, fear, sympathy or pity are discursively commodified (made a commodity) in the mass media, films, reportage and the other public culture forms today is the subject of this book. It demonstrates how cultures today are getting emotion-driven. The book is organised around four ‘sentiments’—well-being, suffering, aversion and hope. It uses reality TV, hate speech, self-help literature, media coverage of 9/11 and 26/11, autobiographies, websites and films, and blends theoretical insights with elements of innovative inquiry, to show how emotions are packaged and how these emotions then determine social relations itself.Printed Pages: 316. 101866

Gandhi: An Illustrated Biography
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 9789351941224; Hardcover; New; New; 25 x 25 Cm 
His life and ideals remain an inspiration across the world but in reality, it was the complexity of his character that made Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi such a fascinating subject. Yet, much of the finer details of his life and intellectual growth has been obscured by the greatness of his achievements. To bring them all together in this illustrated biography is to bring alive one of the most revered figures in modern Indian history, and in a way that is a departure from earlier works. Gandhi: An Illustrated Biography is an intimate study into the evolution of a mischievous, fun-loving boy, into the Mahatma. From his schooling and early marriage in Kathiawar to his first brushes with the grandeur of London; from his chance employment for a legal case in South Africa to a train ride in Pietermaritzburg that led to his first fight for equality; from a relatively unsuccessful lawyer to a globally celebrated crusader for human rights – Gandhi was that rare rebel who redefined the meaning of mass resistance for generations to come. This book is the result of intensive research and tracks Gandhi’s life through photographs sourced from across the world. The chronological text and accompanying photographs bring out his unique complexities – his failures and successes, the intimate relations he shared with his contemporaries, and the difficult one he shared with his own family. This book is a labour of love and an attempt to portray Gandhi’s methods and his message for a new generation of readers. Printed Pages: 324 with numerious colour illustrations. 107412
