23402 Papiya Ghosh; Introduction By Biswamoy Pati
Community and Nation: Essays on Identity and Politics in Eastern India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0195693000; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Papiya Ghosh, an avid researcher of the history of colonial and modern India, was an endearing presence to her fellow historians and the academic community. Bringing together for the first time essays written over the last three decades, this book showcases her analytical insights, nuanced understanding, and empirical rigour. Community and Nation is a tribute to the versatility and intensity of a committed historian whose efforts helped put Bihar on the national and international academic map. This posthumous volume of the author’s best-known essays focuses on the history of Bihar from 1920s to independence. The first six chapters delineate aspects of identity, perceptions, and political articulations of Muslims integrating developments in colonial Bihar. The last four chapters explore complexities associated with those who were forced to leave their homes, such as the exodus of Bihari Muslims to Dacca after the 1946 riots. The author’s work shows the diversities within a stereotypical and homogenized conception of ‘Muslim politics’. By focusing on Bihar and not exclusively on ‘high’ politics, she weaves together the projection of ideas and visions with the shifts, changes, and interactions that marked the intricate relationship between ‘community’ and ‘nation’ in colonial Bihar. 026941

23404 Parag D. Parobo
India's First Democratic Revolution: Dayanand Bandodkar and the Rise of the Bahujan in Goa (New Perspectives in South Asian History)
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8125059261; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Goa features in academic and popular discourse as a place of exceptions, contrary in several ways to national trends. Along with its small geographical size, Goa’s legacy of Portuguese colonialism is often cited as the leading reason behind its character. However, such explanations disregard its complex history and fail to address one of its most important distinctions: the fact that it brought to power in the Assembly elections of 1963, a government driven by the Bahujan Samaj; the first of its kind in India. This government was headed by Chief Minister Dayanand Bandodkar, a lower caste mine owner and philanthropist, whose popularity continued to wax over the next decade. Parag D. Parobo tackles the question of Goan exceptionalism in India’s First Democratic Revolution, focusing not solely on its Portuguese past, but rather on the variety of influences that shaped modern Goa. Central to this issue are the comparatively little explored story of caste-based land and power relations in pre-colonial and early colonial Goa; emerging caste movements and identity politics among both upper castes and lower castes in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries; and the interactions of caste politics with competing colonialisms, both Portuguese and British. Parobo traces the history of land relations and caste movements into the post-Liberation period of Bandodkar’s far-reaching land reforms, which destroyed the centrality of land in power-privilege relations, liberated lower caste tenants from crippling dependence on landlords, and opened up new employment opportunities for the Bahujan. Accompanied by substantial investments in education and health, they ushered in greater equity and democratisation. Goa, therefore, scripted a distinctive story of Bahujan success. This volume explores that history, and its implications for Bahujan politics in India. Printed Pages: 295. 102268

23406 Parag Saigaonkar
The Perfect Storm
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789384030711; Softcover; New; 
The new Indian manager, since coming to India in 2005 in his role as a corporate leader, Parag Saigaonkar has watched the Indian business environment from up close and has also been an enthusiastic participant in the India success story. 21st century India is a world away from the license Raj India of the 1970s and 80s. With its large youth population, impressive English speaking man power and deep pool of professionals, India could well become a leading player in the world economy. But the challenge is that while being well equipped to take on the world, corporate professionals in India have also entered the perfect storm. Economic turbulence, an under equipped work-force, the need for soft-skills, balancing social pressures and other factors could well combine to sink all but the sturdiest of ships. The perfect storm is an insightful and measured assessment of corporate life, its demands and its up sides and downsides. Its astute observations and seasoned advice, coming as they are from a veteran corporate professional with years of experience in India and abroad, make it a must-read for any young manager poised for a career in the corporate world. 109697

23411 Paramahamsa Omkarananda Saraswati
Who is Guru? and Other Inspiring Speeches
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8120835360; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Who Am I? - Before I was born, I was. After I die, I will be. A timeless Being came from, and into timeless Eternity. Time was formed, and time is dissolved, and I remain what I have always been, a Being with depths to which there is no beginning, and heights to which there is no end. Since the supreme Divintity as the Timeless Eternity and as the Time Eternity-Sadashiva Tripurasundari - is dwelling in my Heart, Life, Consciousness, and as there is no difference between that and me and me and that, I am dwelling in the Soul of all Gods and Goddesses, all Saints and Sages, all being visible and invisible. And, yet I am what I am, the Transcendent Reality. If you know here on earth the greatest Sage, Saint, Guru, the greatest clairvoyant, prophet, or anyone to whom supernormal power of perception, or anyone to whom daily contact with God, is attributed - then, ask that person, who Swami Omkarananda is. He will confirm to you that the only true and correct description of Swami Omkarananda is the one he himself has given. - Swami Omkarananda.Printed Pages: 128. 102494

Indian Giants Crack AIM: Vivekananda, Ambedkar and Aurobindo. Their Outburst Against the So-Called Aryan Race and Aryan Invasion Myth
YNN; Kolkata, India; 2003; 8190012789; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The theory of the Aryan invasion of India was invented in support of the Western imperialism both political and cultural. The Western imperialists made us think that the Rig Veda is the work of barbaric invading horde and consequently there is no culture and civilization in the Rigveda and the Christian missionaries got an excuse to show that Vedic culture came from Middle Eastern culture, the cradle of the Bible and Christianity, showing that Hinduism or Vedic religion is an offshoot of the religion and civilization of the West. The showing of the primitive nature of the Vedic allowed the sciences of India to be given a Greek basis. "This approach also discredited the genealogy of the Puranas and the long list of kings before the Buddha and Krishna, as having no historical basis. Printed Pages:293. 000853

Mapping Social Exclusion in India: Caste, Religion and Borderlands
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2013; 1107056098; Hardcover; New; New; 
Mapping Social Exclusion in India assesses the problem of defining exclusion the need for its contextualization and establishes a relationship between social exclusion deprivation and discrimination. It studies the distinctive character of Indian society and system marked with the existence of exclusionary practices and structures on the basis of caste. The usage of the concept of exclusion is more inclusive than any other competing concepts of discrimination or deprivation though these concepts are interchangeably used to denote it. It is therefore important to conceptualize exclusion and in the process come across different shades of its interpretations. The social phenomenon of exclusion that mars societies globally is studied by various scholars who put together their diverse research studies perceptions and ideas and most importantly their years of expertise to focus on a central theme of social exclusion in Indian society. This cohesive volume highlights the causal link between discrimination and exploitation. The contributors study the role of the state as an interventionist force and look into the mobilization strategy as a reaction to exclusion. They take a critical look at the reservation policy and argue that state intervention creates certain new forms of exclusion.Printed Pages: 298. 101484

Divided We Stand: India in a Time of Coalitions
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0761936637; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This topical and absorbing book, written by two eminent journalists, explains why India has entered a new era of coalition politics and analyses the consequences and implications of this relatively recent phenomenon. Transition from single party domination to multi-party configurations or coalitions, the authors argue, is neither temporary nor an aberration. Dismissing the notion of bi-polarity, and resting the debate on whether coalition governments are here to stay, the authors debate on whether coalitions are at best a necessary evil or are better than single-party governments. Among other issues the authors dwell upon are: - The quagmire of coalition politics and the fate of the leading political players—a gradual revival in the fortunes of the Congress and the `honeymoon` with the Left coming under cloud, the power struggle within the BJP, `social engineering` and victory of the BSP in Uttar Pradesh. - The rise of the new dominant Left, the internal differences and the influence on the country`s economic policies. - Political coalitions leading to better governance and greater federalism and reduced incidence of corruption. - The new politics of economic liberalisation and globalisation, together with the crucial issue of growth with equity. - The crucial question of whether coalitions can provide stable governments and under what circumstances. Challenging many widely held views on the Indian political process, this book is a must read for anyone interested in contemporary Indian politics at the beginning of the 21st century.

A Time of Coalitions: Divided We Stand
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0761932372; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 5.5" x 8.5" 
This topical and absorbing book, written by two eminent journalists, convincingly argues against two commonly held beliefs concerning Indian politics. Their basic premise is that India has come a long way from the time when a single party, the Congress, dominated our polity. Instead, it has given way to multi-party configurations or coalitions which, they demonstrate, are neither temporary nor an aberration—coalitions are here to stay, they say, at least in the foreseeable future. Second, they expertly dismiss the view that India’s polity is essentially bipolar, led by either of the two largest parties—the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Congress Party—and that other political parties have no option but to choose which of these two they will align themselves with. The authors take the view that coalition governments are in fact better equipped to deal with the tensions of a divided society while single-party governments tend to both centralise and homogenise. Among the numerous issues and trends cogently discussed are: - the rise of the BJP from the time it was virtually wiped out of Parliament in 1984, and it’s current faction-ridden character - the dramatic decline of the Congress, especially the fact that the minorities and oppressed groups, once its largest constituency, are now deserting it in large numbers - the continuing fragmentation of the Indian polity and the rise of regional parties which are not necessarily narrow and partisan, but capable of looking at issues from a wider perspective - the changing tactics of the Left and their internal differences - the crucial question of whether coalitions can provide stable Union governments - the possibility of alternate political formations—headed neither by the BJP nor the Congress—coming to power at the centre - the extent to which political coalitions have led to better governance, brought about a greater degree of federalism, and reduced the incidence of corruption - the manner in which successive governments have handled the new politics of economic liberalisation and the central issue of growth with equity Printed Pages: 408. 001422

Foundations of Tilak's Nationalism: Discrimination, Education and Hindutva
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8125039198; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Foundations of Tilak’s Nationalism: Discrimination, Education and Hindutva shows how, as opposed to being simply a struggle of the colonised against the coloniser’s oppression, the anti-colonial struggle in India was much more nuanced and complicated. In this process, it examines the role of Bal Gangadhar Tilak and draws attention to issues concerning education, gender, caste, peasantry and communalism, how these were interlinked and had a decisive influence on his anti-colonial nationalism. The study also deconstructs the categories of the moderate and the extremist, the reformer and the orthodox and questions the validity of calling reformers like M. G. Ranade, G. K. Gokhale, N. G. Chandavarkar and G. G. Agarkar as moderates, collaborators and compradors of colonial rule. This book critically analyses Tilak’s stance against a single Indian nationality free from caste and religious prejudices and gender inequalities, of how he advocated the hegemonic control of the landed elites over society contrary to that of the Reformers and inquires into the debates concerning the Nationalist agenda of preventing women and non-Brahmins from gaining access to education. Tilak’s was a patriarchal and orthodox position, that ideated that teaching Hindu women to read and write would ruin their traditional virtues making them immoral and subordinate. Criticism of the caste system and allowing education to women and non-Brahmins, were according to Tilak, ‘un-national tendencies’ and ‘against the Hindu nation’. The author also addresses the origin of the concept of ‘Hindutva’ and locates it not in the conflict of interest between the Hindus and Muslims, or the Hindus and the British, but in the discarding of religious neutrality and the enforcement of caste restrictions. In this context, the author presents the ideology of Hindutva as one further away from the concept of Hinduism, a rigorous representation of the ‘Muslim other’ and traces in it the consequent rise of communalism. In refuting the value premises of viewing an individual independent of caste identity, this book also sheds light on Tilak’s constant ridicule of the Reformers’ emphasis on the Bhakti tradition as a source of spiritual guidance. It introduces the reader to the vehement Nationalist critique of Vedic revivalism, i.e., the advocation of the Vedic religion and a Vedic way of life, which included Vedic rituals, relaxation of rigid caste restrictions and improvement in the condition of women by adopting post-puberty marriage, widow marriage and the education of girls that attempted to incorporate the lower caste groups into its fold—shattering the social and economic hegemony of the Brahmins. This meticulous piece of scholarship is a crucial insight into Tilak’s role in India’s struggle for independence and questions the basis of his status as an uncompromising champion of the freedom movement and his being projected as the greatest Maharashtrian. In trying to read history from an entirely new perspective, this book will be useful to students and scholars of modern Indian history, education, political science and gender studies.

New Perspectives in the History of Indian Education
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125051252; Hardcover; New; New; 
New Perspectives in the History of Indian Education brings together essays on the milestones in the development of modern education in India since the mid-nineteenth century. It offers readings on a wide range of interconnected themes and the debates which have shaped the contours of the educational policy of contemporary India. The essays critique the existing anti-imperialist, postmodern and nationalist historiographies of Indian education, and bring forth the shortcomings of these approaches. Basing themselves on archival sources, they overturn the existing myths created by these historiographies and shed new light on the role of the colonial state, missionaries and Indian nationalist leaders. The empirically rich essays focus on the initiatives to promote education among the socially and educationally backward Dalit communities and the status of Dalit institutions. The authors argue forcefully about the centrality of education in fostering social mobility and change. The essays on women’s education discuss how intensely controversial it was to educate girls, and how women struggled to establish their identity and make their voices heard in a traditional society undergoing a transition to modernity. The essays also critically examine the colonial state policy and the attitude of nationalist leaders towards the introduction of mass and compulsory education.Printed Pages: 650. 101829

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.

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 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

23498 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
