The 4 Contracts of Meaningful Work
Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 8184950209; Softcover; New; 
More and more organizations and management scholars are acknowledging the need to find new ways to motivate workers and make them creative and effective. The traditional management models, which are based on best practices that were suitable for the industrial age, are no longer effective to take organizations to new heights and create fulfilling work lives for their workers. Hierarchies, bureaucracy, control, and processes are preventing the information age workers to explore and realize their true potential and help their organizations to grow to new heights. Workers and organizations are yearning for new ways to become creative, competitive, and most importantly meaningful and purpose-driven. Karmic, Inc. introduces a new management paradigm that goes above, and beyond traditional management thinking. It shows ways to fuel the growth and vitality of the information age workers and organizations. As the information age evolves to the new age of knowledge and wisdom, organizations need the tools described in this book to thrive.Printed Pages: 224. 105560

Economic Growth and its Distribution in India
Orient BlackSwan; Hyderabad, India; 2015; 8125059016; First Edition; Paperback; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
After a boom in the early twenty-first century, India witnessed a macroeconomic reversal marked by a slowdown in growth that has lasted a little longer than the boom. At the same time, a fresh criterion of governance, namely inclusion, has emerged and become a priority for the state. Written against the backdrop of these developments, the essays in this volume represent a range of perspectives and methods pertaining to the study of growth and its distribution in India. The essays in Section I take the long view of growth in the country. They represent issues of abiding interest and provide the canvas upon which the rest of the articles may be seen as placed. Section II takes a macro view of the recent history of the economy. The essays explore the reasons for the shift from a regime of high growth and low inflation to one of low growth and high inflation, deconstruct the ‘dream run’ of the economy over 2003–08, and evaluate the United Progressive Alliance government’s performance. Section III comprises essays that study the economy at the next level down, covering its agriculture, industry and services. Another essay reflects upon the desirable space for finance in India, a topic that has assumed some relevance after the global recession. Finally, the essays in Section IV address the emergence into the public sphere of the idea that growth must be inclusive. Accordingly, the essays here assess the extent to which recent growth has been inclusive, approaching the issue from various angles. Assembling authoritative voices on the economy of contemporary India, this volume will be indispensable for students of economics, management, development studies and public policy. It will also prove useful to policymakers and journalists. Printed Pages: 516. 038351

Economic Reforms and Growth in India: Essays from Economic and Political Weekly (Readings on the Economy, Polity and Society)
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8125042717; Softcover; New; 
This volume investigates the nature of economic growth in India, its pace over time, its relationship to changes in the policy regime and the role of the external sector, and uses data to evaluate the policies that have implicitly underpinned the changes. Presenting a range of approaches, views and conclusions, this collection comprises papers from the Economic and Political Weekly that are marked by an empirical awareness necessary for an understanding of a growth history. The articles reflect a certain groundedness in their approach in that they privilege content/context over methodology. The introduction outlines the importance of putting together the writings of almost a decade on the subject, explains why the issue of development is conspicuous by its absence, and presents this book as a complement to studies addressing a wider set of issues around the economy since 1990.Printed Pages: 468. 101821

The Seven Sisters: Kitchen Tales from the North East
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789384030674; Softcover; New; 
The Seven Sisters: Kitchen Tales from the North East takes us on a journey through the villages, sleepy towns and burgeoning cities of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura, culminating in the kitchens where families gather around the stove to cook, eat and celebrate life.As North Easterners from across India and around the world disclose both family lore and the secrets of cuisine passed down generations, we meet a daughterin- law who preserves the recipes she learnt as a bride in the house of her new family, a son who keeps alive the memory of his mother through the dishes that enchanted his childhood, a grandson on distant shores who sees the sunset of his hometown in the aromatic haze rising from his kitchen stove–and much more.Here we are led on a discovery of culinary delights and cultural revelations of an unsung region. There is more to food from the land of the Seven Sisters than momos, and, no, dogs do not vanish from their streets only to appear in kitchens, and frogs don’t leap onto the dining table! In fact, while much of the world has woken not so long ago to the wonders of slow cooking, seasonal products and a no-oil, no-sugar diet, in the North East, that flavour is a time-tested one. The smorgasbord has something of everywhere–from the killer Raja Mirchi of Nagaland to the simple delicacy of Pork Bharta from Tripura (cover image), to the mildly flavoured Chahou Kheer (purple rice porridge) from Manipur…Pick up this passport and newly discovered kitchen turf in the hills, plains and valleys of this colourful region. 109694

23135 Purnima Bose
Organizing Empire: Individualism, Collective Agency & India
Zubaan; New Delhi, India; 8189884018; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 140 x 215 Mm 
Organizing Empire critically examines how concepts of individualism functioned to support and resist British imperialism in India. Through readings of British colonial and Indian nationalist narratives that emerged in parliamentary debates, popular colonial histories, newslettes, memoirs, biographies, and novels, Purnima Bose investigates the ramifications of reducing collective activism to individual intentions. Paying particular attention to the construction of gender, she shows that ideas of individualism rhetorically and theoretically bind colonials, feminists, nationalists, and neocolonials to one another. She demonstrates how reliance on ideas of the individual - as scapegoat or hero - enabled colonial and neocolonial powers to deny the violence that they perpetrated. At the same time, she shows how analyses of the role of the individual provide a window into the dynamics and limitations of state formations and feminist and nationalist resistance movements. From a historically grounded feminist perspective, Bose offers four case studies, each of which illuminates a distinct individualising rhetorical strategy. She looks at the parliamentary debates on the Amritsar Massacre of 1919, in which several hundred unarmed Indian protestors were killed; Margaret Cousin's firsthand account of feminist organizing in Ireland and India; Kalpana Dutt's memoir of the Bengali Terrorist Movement of the 1930s, which was modeled in part on Irish anti-colonial activity, and the popular histories generated by ex-colonial officials and their wives. Bringing to the fore the constraints that colonial domination placed upon agency and activism, Organizing Empire highlights the complexity of the multiple narratives that constitute Britihs colonial history.

23137 Purnima Mehta Bhatt
Her Space Her Story
Zubaan/Atlantic Publishers & Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789383074495; Softcover; New; 
Centuries ago, in the arid landscape of Gujarat, where water is scarce and rains scanty, stepwells sustained life and enabled crops to flourish. Women played a major role in the construction and patronage of many of these stepwells, which were unique structures that linked three worlds: the subterranean, the earthly and the celestial. Women also frequently served as inspiration for their construction — these were often built to honour a virtuous wife or benevolent mother, a local goddess or a beloved mistress. As a gathering place for women, the stepwells also became a favourite subject in folklore. Every stepwell yields tales of love and betrayal, courage and sacrifice. Through a historical analysis and visual documentation of these distinctly female spaces, Purnima Bhatt sheds light on the relationship between women, water, architecture and religion. Examining the artistic and aesthetic aspects of these structures, the author describes the art of the stepwells as looking beyond the patriarchal gods of classical Hinduism and celebrating the feminine principle. She also explores the idea of these wells acting as indicators of women’s changing social and economic status and challenging the stereotypes of the passivity of women. Her focus on ‘the woman factor’ aims to give voice to countless women who are forgotten and neglected by history, thereby making the invisible, visible. Printed Pages: 174. 109480

23138 Purnima Mehta Bhatt (compiled and translated); Introduced By Svati Joshi
Reminiscences: The Memoris of Shardaben Mehta
Zubaan; New Delhi, India; 8189013653; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
IN THE AFFLUENT and confident capitalist society of nineteenth century Gujarat, debates on social reform, including women’s reform, were conducted entirely by men, and were largely of academic interest since the historical transition to British rule had brought about little change in the existing social structure. In this context, the interventions of Sharadaben Mehta, a progressive educationist and social worker, represented a pioneering attempt by a woman in the early twentieth century at questioning, analysing and changing the conditions of women’s lives. The story of her life, as told by her in this memoir, is not that of an individual woman struggling to realize her personal aspirations, rather it is the story of an educated woman, equipped with independent views and fearless convictions, determined to open up a space for other women to enable them to experience the freedom and joy denied to them in their daily lives in patriarchal society. This book, made up of short pieces that she wrote at regular intervals for publication, tells the story of Sharadaben’s life and times, giving us insights into Indian history, viewed from the point of view of a participant in the freedom movement, and provides rich insights into the area of women’s education and the many campaigns in which they were involved. As well, it documents a life of intellectual companionship and action, one committed to women’s freedom and independence.

Horizons of the Self in Hindu Thought: A Study for the Perplexedr the Perplexed
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8124608504; Third Edition; Softcover; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Introduction. 1. Self in Brahmanism: The vedas and upanishads. 2. The Samkhya alternative. 3. Destiny of the self: karma, rebirth and eschatology. 4. Purushartha: the human Kingdom of ends. 5. On Shankara’s attempted reconciliation of ‘You’ and ‘I’. Bibliography. There is a variety of competing ideas about the nature of self in the Hindu tradition. Efforts to bring them together under a unitary conception were underway for many centuries. Much of the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Oriental scholarship and the latter-day popularist movements made considerable effort to obscure the complexity and diversity of the idea of the self and its horizon in the broad spectrum of Hindu beliefs. This modest study discusses the different conceptions of the self, and answers questions such as what is the self? And where does the self come from? How does the personal self retain its identity over time and space? In answering these questions it draws from the Vedic texts, Upanishads and the Vedanta system, especially Advaita (non-dualism). It also looks at the Samkhya system and its radically different conception of the self, which varies considerably from that of Upanishadic formulation. Buddhist and latter-day criticisms of the Hindu positions on the self via the ‘neo-self’ theory are discussed.The book also addresses questions such as what happens to the self, what does it do? Where does it go? And where ought it go? Discussing fate or destiny of the self in the context of karma, dharma, death and rebirth. Issues such as ends or goals towards which a person has to strive, realizing the fullest potential and purpose of the self, are well deliberated upon. Shankara’s concept of the self and critique of the non-self are also examined. Printed Pages: 102. 110949

Elusive Peace: India and Pakistan
Kaveri Book Service; New; 2006; 8174790780; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The history of Indo-Pakistan relations has mainly been a story of conflict and discord, mutual distrust and suspicion. A continuing Seige mentality on both sides, fuelled by bitter historical memories, deep rooted prejudices and undying mistrust, is a powerful political tool for fanning public passions in the hands of those decision makers and governmental institutions having vested interest in perpetuating hostilities. Hard line politicians and policy makers on both sides, denigrate dialogue and promote enemy images, aided in their task of manipulating public opinion by sympathetic segments of the media, and years of indoctrination through state controlled educational systems. This book introduces the subject and gives a general description of the problem to be investigated.

An Agenda for The Nation
Mapin Publishing; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8189995901; Softcover; New; 
For over two decades now, India is seen to be on the cusp of claiming. its place in the ‘Asian Century’. The country—the largest democracy in the world—is generally considered an emerging power due to its large and stable population, policy of free-market economics, rapid advancements in science and technology, rule of law and culture of peace.With all these factors seeming to be in favour, what is holding the nation back from fulfilling the promises it has held out to its people? India still has to overcome major challenges such as regional and societal income disparities, moving up the value chain towards greater innovation, and bringing about an overhaul in its manner of governance for the nation to prosper and actually step into the future. Also, the vision of India as dreamed by the forefathers at the time of Independence seems to have been lost sight of along the way.This visionary document presents India’s national assets, its problems/liabilities and their inter-relationships to identify those at the top of the hierarchy, and the quality of life and lifestyles we wish to achieve in various sectors (urban, rural or tribal). The authors then delineate important actionable points and the steps that Indian government(s) ought to take in order to use our assets to overcome our problems so that the nation can reach the goals, towards which all development should take us.This agenda would be of tremendous help to all political parties to plantheir manifesto and will help citizens to understand the issues important to them individually, and to India’s future.

The Two Faces of Beauty: Science and Art
Mapin Publishing; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8189995693; Hardcover; New; New; 
Science and art are both manifestations of beauty and creativity. As mankind has evolved intellectually and socially and as science has progressed, artistic creations by humans have tended towards increasing harmony with nature and they have become more abstract—like mathematics, which is the abstraction of all sciences. The authors of this unusual work postulate some critical ideas on science, art and aesthetics, and establish that we need both, a scientific temper and the temper of art.Evidence to support these theses is drawn from mathematics, physics, studies in molecular biology, and also from music, fine art and design. Readers are taken through lucid prose with the help of illustrations of natural phenomenon such as spiral galaxies, spider web, the Fibonacci series and fractals in lightning, and of products of human creativity such as paintings of masters like Picasso, Husain and Escher, musical pieces, textile fragments and Ajanta caves frescoes.

Kautilya's Arthashastra: An Appraisal
Nag Publishers; Delhi, India; 1989; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The present Book is a compendium of scholarly contributions at the seminar held at South Delhi Campus in March 1988 on the Arthasastra of Kautilya. It covers a vide range of topies on the Kautilya's Arthasastra ranging from Economics, financial administration, taxation, Architecture, trade routes, system of spies and Agriculture etc. It also reveals the underlying thought-current of Kautilya on various social Institutions prevalent in his. times. All these authors have tried to look afresh on various social problems-which were welthought of by Kautilya and he tried to find out the solutions in his own way. He was, it seems, far ahead of his times. The present study will encourage and stimulate the scholars to explore this treasure-house of knowledge and to mould our modern day socio-political thinking in the wider and far-reaching interest of our nation. A comprehensive Introduction by Prof. Pushpendra Kumar is of an additional interest and helps in the understanding of Kautilya's magnitude and heights.Printed Pages: 300. 103961

Tara: The Supreme Goddess
Bharatiya Vidya Prakashan; Delhi, India; 1992; Hardcover; New; New; 
Tara is the most popular goddess in the Buddhist pantheon. She holds the same place in Buddhism as the goddess Durga has in Brahmanism. Etymologically Tata means the goddess who makes the devotees to cross the sea or ocean, broadly speaking the very ocean of existence. The Buddhists consider Tara to be the great Mother-goddess, the symbol of primordial female energy and the consort of Avalokiteswara, the god of compassion. Acceding to her Sadhanas, the enables her devotees to surmomt all sorts of dangers, calamities and eight Mahabhayas.This Monograph on Tara discusses the date and place of the origin of the goddess. The cult of the goddess, though now restricted only to Tibet and Nepal, was a popular one in Bihar, Bengal, Assam, Uttarpradesh, Orissa and Hill states. Even in Kashmir, it was a very popular deity. A Good number of sculptural representation of Tara have been found in the Buddhist caves of the western Deccan such as Ellora, Aurangabad, Kanheri and Ajanta. Nagarjuni Konpla rums have also revealed the traces of this goddess, its wide popularity has been proved by a large number of images and paintings on Manuscripts. The most creative period for this goddess in India was from 5th century A.D. to 13th century A.D., later on it flourished in Nepal, Tibet and Ladakh region.The author has discussed the various theories about the origin of the goddess Tara, and given us a detailed account of the various forms of the goddess. A detailed and critical treatment of the various types of images of Tara, gives us a deeper Insight to appreciate and admire the activities of the artists of the various periods. The present work will make you to realize the inner feelings of her devotees and artosts as well as the canons and scriptures. The work will surely be fulfilling the long desired needs and hopes of the students and scholars of Indians art and religion. 103758

Indian Fast Food
Lustre Press/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174364978; Hardcover; New; New; 
Indian Fast Food offers much more than convenient finger foods or a quick bite to quell the pangs of hunger. They cater, almost effortlessly, to different tastes and combine nutrition with ecstatic aesthetic experience. The most interesting thing about the recipes in this book is that these can be very easily adapted as per individual requirement and do not depend on any indispensable, exotic ingredient. A substitute can often be pressed into service while cooking abroad without any appreciable difference in its impact. Usually savoured informally, recipes like pav bhaaji, jhinga biryani, shorshe maach and many more can also be easily included in a formal, celebratory menu. Printed Pages: 95. 108616

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8121509130; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 19 Cms x 25 Cms 
Buddhist Divinities is a thoughtful contribution to the history of Buddhism comprising both history of religion and art. It presents a systematic account of many renowned scholars of Buddhist religion, philosophy and literature who worked and studies in the monastic universities of Bengal and Bihar. These scholars contributed most to the history of Buddhist religion and for this they recieved respect above god for their learning and character. Besides these deified historical personages a detailed list is made of Buddhist gods and goddesses (on the basis of images discovered), both major and minor with their symbold, attributes, characteristics and iconographical details, in the hope that it may help to give a broad and general idea of the peculiarities of Buddhism which were developing in some of its later phases. The book is a comprehensive treatment of these subjects which are vital from the point of view of history of Buddhism, both history of religion and art; but which are least understood and studied in systematic manner.

Philosophical Perspectives of K. Satchidananda Murty
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8124606781; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This book, on the philosophical contribution of Prof. K. Satchidananda Murty, critically examines his contribution to global under-standing of Indian ethos, philosophy and Vedànta. Dr Boaz explains that Murty has rightly interpreted Indian philosophy with reference to socio-political and physical conditions at different periods of Indian history. Boaz presents that for Murty, man in his existential condition and world of experience does not satisfy himself with what is around him or what he perceives with his senses. This impulse of man and his intellectual pursuit further lead to know things beyond, which results in metaphysics. Here one explores the profoundity of Murty's philosophy about man and the transcendent. Prof. Murty's spectrum of philosophy is far and wide, and extends to the Far East. With his wide understanding, he also addresses the Indian spirit and tries to clarify certain misconceptions about Indian culture, ethos and history, and adopts a humanistic approach to the study of philosophy as a whole. This book is of great reference value to the students and teachers of philosophy for it reveals the extraordinarily different perspective of Indian philosophy by a philosopher of our times.Printed Pages: 168. 100421

Telangana People's Struggle and Its Lessons
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789382993858; Softcover; New; 
This book provides a comprehensive account of the Telangana People’s Struggle during 1946–51 to point out the political lessons that emerged from this movement. Beginning with an account of feudal oppression in the Nizam-governed Hyderabad state and the organization of masses against the backdrop of the national movement the book recounts the shaping of an alternate nationalism that gave particular emphasis to the struggle for the depressed classes. It discusses the sacrifices of the fighting peasantry of Telangana and the Visalandhra state unit of the Communist Party which led the uprising. During the course of the struggle the peasantry in about 3000 villages succeeded in setting up gram raj on the basis of village panchayats. About one million acres of land was redistributed among the people and all evictions and forced labour service were abolished. The movement also paved the way for rewarding the political map of India on a national democratic and linguistic basis. After this movement the Communist Party emerged as the biggest opposition group in the first parliament following the 1952 general election. The book analyses a series of issues such as the role of the peasantry in the people’s democratic revolution the significance of partisan resistance and rural revolutionary bases the concept of working class hegemony and the role of the Communist Party in a developing country.Printed Pages: 302 with 472. 101439

Basic Principles of Indian Philosophy of Language (Jadavpur Studies in Philosophy)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8121511232; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
Basic Principles of Indian Philosophy of Language is a concordance of the theories of sabdapramana or philosophy of language in Indian tradition. An analytic approach has been made on the theories available in Paninian, Nyaya-Vaisesika, Purvamimamsa and Cedanta schools to show the consistency of the discourse made by traditional philosophers who claim themselves to be astika or Vedacentric. Attempts also have been made to establish that the traditional Indian theories of language are undoubtedly relevant for solving some problems raised in modern philosophy of language.
