Whistling in the Dark: Twenty-One Queer Interviews
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8178299216; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Whistling in the Dark: Twenty One Queer Interviews is a book on gay narratives from India and other countries in the form of 20 interviews with homosexual/bi-sexual men and a lone interview with a woman. The interviewees represent a cross section of society ranging from university professors, gay rights activists and students on the one hand to working class men such as office boys, autorickshaw drivers, and even undertrials who have served prison sentences on the other, conducted in the manner of a sting operation. They shed light on major issues in the field of sexuality studies such as sexual identity, sexual politics, the institution of marriage, hetero-patriarchy and hetero-normativity, homosociality and the segregation of sexes, masculinity, women's rights, section 377 of the Indian Penal Code, police atrocities against gays, gay bashing, sex in jails, sex tourism, and so on. The narratives are queer, not just in the sense of being with persons who posses a queer sexuality but also because they go beyond the conventionally decorous questions put to interviewees by their interviewers, and enter the very private lives of the respondents and the private spaces they inhabit.

Urbanization and Urban Systems in India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 1997; 0195629590; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This substantive and original contribution to the study of urbanization in India critically analyses the strengths and weaknesses of the Indian urban system and provides new insights into contemporary urban problems. The author's perspective of urban development in India interrelates the geographical dimension with historical and socio-economic aspects. The book focuses on the processes of urbanization and the nature of interdependence among urban centres and between urban centres and their hinterlands. The approach is at the macro level. The first chapter provides an overview of studies of urbanization in India, and a detailed chapter on the history of urbanization follows. These provide the necessary background to the chapter on urbanization processes. The locational aspects of urbanization are covered in the next five chapters which discuss the problem of defining an urban place, spatial patterns of urbanization, classification of cities, theories of settlement location and the analysis of settlement systems. The relationships between a city and its surrounding area are then studied at two levels - the larger area of city dominance and the city fringe area. Finally, the author examines the fundamental issues involved in framing a national urbanization policy, and expresses the hope that the development of smaller cities and towns may provide some relief from the problems of overcrowding and unplanned growth.

Hindu Nationalism and the Indian Church: Towards an Ecclesiology in Conversation with Martin Luther (Interfaith Treasures Uncovered: 1)
Christian World Imprints/B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8192512169; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In this book, the author attempts to re-construe an Indian ecclesiology vis-a-vis the narrowly defined ideals of Hindu nationalism in contemporary India by analyzing and investigating the ecclesiological thoughts of Martin Luther, the 16th century Protestant Reformer. The book brilliantly places the teachings of the Reformer within `the social and historical travails of that time and brings them to bear on the ongoing constructive task of living into a relevant and appropriate Indian ecclesiology (and thereby, Indian Christian theology) today'.In this process, it is being maintained that the Indian Church must transform itself into a "Perichoretic Communion", in which the diverse Christian ethnic groups and the plurality of cultures of India must interpenetrate in order to form one unit, while keeping their respective ethnic, linguistic and cultural identities intact. The author draws his insights from Luther's fundamental theological/ ecclesiological principle: unity of the opposites or distinction and integration, and passionately proposes that it must be the principle of the Indian Church today. This theological writing presents an important and pioneering opus. It clearly focuses on contemporary contextual issues, concerns and challenges, and offers insights of general validity, not only for the Indian world but also from a global perspective. It is a timely volume and is well advised for the worldwide Church and the public at large.Printed Pages: 490. 106421

Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/MLBD; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8120818512; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Caturda??iprakasika (c. CE 1650) of Venkatamakhin is a fundamental treatise of Karnataka music and marks the rearguard in the renaissance of Indian music. It has launched a crucial, conceptual revolution which has metamorphosed this musical system into an enduring and attractive paddhati. It has been profoundly influencing every musician, musicologist and composer of south India ever since it was written. This influence will remain undimmed in the foreseeable future. The Caturda??iprakasika is written in ten chapters: Sruti, Svara, Mela, Raga, Alapa, ?haya, Gita, Prabandha and Tala. It is being issued in two volumes: The first volume consists of the critically edited text, English translation, text-critical comments, critical and explanatory notes, several indices and a detailed critical introduction. The second volume contains a critical study of rare commentary of this text called Makhih?daya.Printed Pages: 1191. 101612

Ragalaksanam of Sri Muddhuvenkatamakhi
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/MLBD; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8120834089; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Ragalak?a?am was composed by Mudduve?ka?amakhin in Tanjore in the early eighteenth century CE. It is an important text of Karnataka music and appeared in an effervescent epoch in the development of this music system of which it deals only with raga.It collects, classifies, codifies and characterizes the entire music base of the Indian peninsula. The author was a musician, musicologist and music composer of high order. His contribution to the world of music is twofold; systematization of the theory of raga content of his times and creating music to crystallize the character and scope of each raga described. The author derived his inspiration from his great-grandfather, Ve?ka?makhim who revolutionized the theory and practice of Indian music through his scheme of seventy-two melas. His Caturda??iprakasika illustrates the four fun dam en tal components ( da??i of music-gita, alapa, ?haya and prabandha, which his paramaguro (teacher's teacher) Tanappa postulated and illustrated. His own guru was his father Govindadik?ita who made the first da??is in practice in his Sa?gitasudha. Thus a line of four important musicians­ musicologists-composer of south India - Tanappa, Govindadiik?ita, Ve?ka?amakhin and Mudduve?ka?amakhin -built up or reorganized a textual tradition which supported a living dynamic tradition of performed music in which hundreds of composers, thousands of performers and countless listeners endeavoured to continuously strengthen and nourish it. The Ragalak?a?am marks an important phase of this great evolution.Printed Pages: 393. 101614

India of Ideas: 175 Years of News Generating Views
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 9789382299806; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
India is not just the world's largest democracy, it is a cacophony of voices. There is everything that one could wish to find in this country. Yet, we cling on, not yet descending into the anarchy that we seem to outsiders. Odes can be sung about India's voice, and it still wouldn't do justice. When one part of it says "yea," another shouts "nay." Yet it is this cacophony that forms the soul of everything that is inherently Indian about out great country. In India of Ideas, Rupa Sengupta selects articles, editorials, reader's feedback and more from over 175 years of the Times of India's existence, taken right from its archives. In doing so, she lends some semblance of order to the chaos of India, and shows us that even in this disarray, we are united, and definitely proud to be what we are. Indians. 104689

Aristotle’s Philosophy of Science
Global Vision Publishing House; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8187746645; Hardcover; New; New; 
Aristole was primarily an encyclopedist and with the partial exception of Democritos, he was the first one. Earlier philosopher had tired to explain the universe, but Aristotle, who shared their ambition, was the first to realize that such an explanation should be preceded by as complete an inventory and description of it as possible. He did not simply understand that need but, what is more remarkable, he satisfied it. The totality of this works represents an encyclopedia of the available knowledge, much of which was obtained by himself or because of his leadership. It is easy to find holes or errors in that encyclopaedia, but the amazing thing is that it was as good, as comprehensive and durable, as it was. This book will give various facets of Aristotle?s vast knowledge of science. Printed Pages: 302. 110078

This is one of the earliest works on Buddhism and a pioneer attempt to analyse the deeds and doctrines attributed to Gotama. It also gives a compendium on the ontology and ethics of Buddhism with an appendix indicating the twelve sources from which the materials were drawn by the learned author, who collected no less than four hundred and sixty-five works from Ceylon in original Sanskrit, Pali and Sinhalese and Elu. The author begins his thesis with the system of the Universe, and deals in the subsequent chapters with the primitive inhabitants of the earth, the Buddhas who preceded Gotama, the Bodhisat: his ancestors, his legendary life, his dignity, powers and virtues, his teachings on caste, in fact, every cognate matter that is associated with the founder of Buddhism.

Kalyug
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789384030650; Softcover; New; 
He looked at his gun once more. The helplessness left him, in its place was a hardened resolve that he would still have the final say. A third option. The middle-finger to the middlemen who had driven him to this. A few moments later, Major General Iqbal Qureshi fired the shot that shook the nations conscience.The death of a decorated war veteran, one of India’s foremost military officials, triggers a chain of events that threatens to spiral out of control.The democratically-elected government is overthrown and a new one is formed in its place.A fierce and pure regime that promises it’s people the people the kind of governance they have been deprived of. Just. Fair. Unyielding.Operation Kalyug has begun.Caught in the middle is Bala Murali Selvam, a writer who is still tormented by the memories of his persecution at the hands of the erstwhile-establishment. As the new government battles factions fighting for control, International intervention, personal agendas and incompatible motives, Selvam is swept along, a bewildered-pawn in a high-stakes game. Forced to question everything he has believed so far, even his innate sense of justice, Selvam struggles to choose sides. Will his instincts fail him when he needs them the most? 109693

India's Higher Defence: Organisation and Management
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 201; 9789380502564; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Experts have repeatedly affirmed that the military debacle of 1962 is directly attributable to the failure of the Higher Defence Management. If the Indian leadership of 1947 had the resolve to establish the Higher Defence Organisation (HDO) through a Cabinet resolution within weeks of gaining independence, what went wrong in the first fifteen years? The Kargil episode was another sad reminder of the state of affairs, as brought out by the Kargil Review Committee and the Group of Ministers’ (GoM’s) report on Reforming the National Security System. This book dwells in detail on various reforms undertaken since Kargil and surveys the shortcomings that continue to plague defence decision-making in India. Almost a decade after the submission of the GoM’s report, the book is an aide memoire of the fact that the time has arrived to take a fresh look at higher defence and analyse where we stand now. Exploring the past and discovering the genesis of Indian Defence Management since the Vedic Age, the book covers a large ground in analysing the role of HDO during the inter-state conflicts since independence, issues in defence planning, post-Kargil reforms, functioning of the Chiefs of Staffs Committee, the CDS impasse and the functioning of the National Security Mechanism.Printed Pages: 322. 104384

Christian World Imprints/B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789351481072; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The book is an outcome of explorati on of two great traditi ons – the early Christi an traditions and Cultural traditi ons of Northeast India with a special reference to Mizo society. The author asserts that the uncriti cal acceptance of ecclesiology that these tribal churches are inheriti ng from the Western church traditi ons has resulted in the proliferati on of tribal people in line with diff erent denominati ons. Also, uncritical rejecti on of the local cultural traditions has contributed to the superfi cial character of the church which failed to respond to peoples’ problems. The author sought to construct a contextual ecclesiology for tribal Christi ans, based on the early Christi an traditi ons and Tribal cultural traditi ons, by adopti ng a criti cal synthesis method.

There remains coverage of classic topics such as varieties of language, speech as social interaction, the quantitative study of speech, and linguistic and social inequality. Like the first, the second edition of Sociolinguistics is an exceptionally clear and helpful overview of the relationship of language and society. Printed Pages: 295. 001738

Conservation of Buddhist Monuments in Central India
Sharada Publishing House; Delhi, India; 2015; 9789383221059; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
The Buddhist site of Sanchi was discovered by General Taylor in 1818 for the educated world. But the memory of Sanchi as a Buddhist establishment was alive till 1728 when Dost Mohammad founder of Bhopal dynasty admonished his brother Aqil for desecrating a Buddhist statue in Sanchi. This emphasises that the memory of Sanchi did not die but survived. In spite of desertion of the site by the Buddhist monks towards the end of seventeenth century and movement of monks towards western side of Malwa, Sanchi was in know of the people. The authentic description of Sanchi appeared in 1819 and it became known to the western world. From 1818-1851 no substantial investigations were carried out. In 1852, unsystematic excavations were carried out by Alexander Cunningham at Sanchi and other sites (Sonari, Satdhara, Bhojpur-Pipaliya and Andher), but no initiative was taken for the preservation till 1912. Between this period of half a century, more damage was caused to the Sanchi in the name of restoration and other sites suffered. John Marshall initiated conservation at the request of Bhopal state and the results of these operations were published in 1940. The fate of other sites in terms of survey, excavation and conservation remained neglected. In 1991 efforts were made to survey these Buddhist sites again along with Sanchi, which thrived more than fifteen hundred years. The survey of Satdhara and Bhojpur-Pipaliya revealed many facets of these establishments which had remained in oblivion for one and a half century. The present study deals with the survey, excavation and conservation. Much more work needed to be done around these sites. Hope future archaeologists will take it forward what has been done in the last fifteen years.Printed Pages: 180 with 62 colours & 126 b/w illustrations. 102716

Buddhist Monasteries of Ladakh
Sharada Publishing House; Delhi, India; 2014; 8192698300; Hardcover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
Government of India opened Ladakh for foreign tourist in 1975. This initiative of the Government attracted European scholars and tourists and gave a boost to economic activities. From 1975-85, large number of tourists visited Ladakh and created an inquisitiveness and interest in the Tibetan art and artifacts. Dozens of Kashmiris and locals opened kiosks and started selling local handicrafts. In the process replicas of thang-kas and ritual objects were also sold in the market. This period of ten years of commercial activity in the art objects started posing a threat and it was felt necessary by the government to support the monasteries financially and other institutions to undertake the safety and protection measures for the cultural heritage of Ladakh. For quite a considerable period this endeavour of government did not yield any tangible results, but definitely laid the beginning of a dialogue between monasteries and government. Government institutions initiated study and preservation of various monasteries and inculcated a sense of significance in the minds of Lamas and other concerned.The present study is a molecule attempt in understanding the monasteries and the objects housed therein. Much more remains to be done in different parts of Ladakh to assess the enormous wealth of art, architecture and literature. Hope future scholars may take forward what has been done in the present study.Printed Pages: 331 with 26 figures, 131 colour & 95 b/w illustrations. 102721
