Dalhana and his Comments on Drugs
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1982; 8121501598; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Dalhana is immortal by his single monumental work, the commentary on the Susruta Samhita known as Nibandha Samgraha. Nibandha Samgraha compiles views of a large number of authors and commentators and critically analyses them to arrive at a logical conclusion hence the title is quite meaningful. Dalhana was a versatile scholar and as such has contributed in discussing various allied topics which leads to clear understanding of the basic concepts. His outstanding contribution is picturesque interpretation of drugs mentioned in the Susruta Samhita. The commentator belongs to the early medieval period and as such gives valuable information on the cultural condition of his times. The present work is the first of its kind which inaugurates the critical study of the commentaries on the ancient texts of Indian medicine which, apart from being a faithful guide to understand the ancient compendium, presents a rich panorama of cultural data which may be helpful in proper historical understanding.

popular he becomes, he remains an enigma. This book is a glimpse of a man through pictures and not too many words. The aim is to portray, not propagate. This book takes the reader on a journey from his humble beginning in a small mofussil village in India to now when the country looks towards him to relieve it from the quagmire that it finds itself in. The reader is invited to share his triumphs and his failures, his dreams and his aspirations, not for himself but for his motherland. Because as we discovered, Modi essentially is what his country makes of him and he makes of it.... Printed Pages: 186. 107221

Antisemitismi Suomen evankelis-luterilaisessa kirkossa 1917- 1933
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2017; 9525031861; New; 
Antisemitismin eli juutalaisvastaisuuden juuret ovat syvällä kristinuskossa. Juutalaisiin kohdistetut uskonnolliset syytökset ulkokultaisesta uskonharjoituksesta aina Kristuksen tappamiseen ovat säilyneet kirkollisessa opetuksessa lähes 2000 vuotta. Kun tällaiset näkemykset yhdistyivät maalliseen, niin sanottuun moderniin antisemitismiin, muodostui 1900-luvun alussa monien kirkonmiesten käsitys juutalaisista varsin kielteiseksi. Paavo Ahosen teos Antisemitismi Suomen evankelis-luterilaisessa kirkossa 1917-1933 on ensimmäinen perusteellinen tutkimus itsenäisen Suomen kirkollisesta antisemitismistä. Vuosina 1917-1933 antisemitismiä esiintyi niin kirkollisissa lehdissä, virallisissa keskusteluissa, kirkollisten toimijoiden julkaisuissa kuin piispojen henkilökohtaisissa muistiinpanoissa. Ahosen tutkimus osoittaa, että antisemitismi oli maassamme ensimmäisen maailmansodan jälkeen huomattavasti yleisempi ilmiö kuin aiemmin on käsitelty, ja se ulottui aina Suomen evankelis-luterilaisen kirkon johtoon saakka.

Suomen maalaisseurakuntien köyhäinhoito luterilaisen ortodoksian aikana (1571-1686)
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2013; 9525031748; New; 
Tutkimus on ensimmäinen luterilaisen Suomen alkutaipaleen köyhäinhoitoa käsittelevä tutkimus. Se täydentää keskeisiltä osin historiantutkimuksen kuvaa suomalaisen hyvinvointiyhteiskunnan rakentumisesta. Tutkimus kuvaa Suomen maalaisseurakuntien köyhäinhoidon todellisuutta ja nostaa ensimmäistä kertaa esille maaseudun köyhiä ja kerjäläisiä. Mittavaan lähdemateriaaliin perustuva tutkimus tuulettaa piintyneitä käsityksiä luterilaisesta köyhäinhoidosta ja kertoo, mitä köyhäinhoito oli käytännössä. Tutkimus havainnollistaa köyhyyden rakennetta ja pyrkimyksiä ratkaista köyhyyden aiheuttamia ongelmia. Samalla se antaa merkittävää historiallista taustatietoa nykypäivän köyhäinhoitokeskusteluun.

We can make an attempt to describe an object or a matter which can be perceived by our organs of sense. But it is difficult to describe anything that our eyes cannot see, ears cannot hear, tongue cannot taste, skin cannot feel and the nose fails to smell. We use our organs of sense to gather information from outside world. Sometimes it makes us wonder who is responsible for the working of these organs.Printed Pages: 212. 102147

Public Administration in India
National Book Trust/Sangam Book Depot; New Delhi, India; 8123717822; Softcover; New;

It is based on the insights gained by an administrator in more than 35 years of experience at the state, national and international levels.

It will suit the needs of both the layperson and the student as it is an informative down- to-earth book on administration in India. It will serve as a good guide to aspirants and entrants to the civil services, to whom, in the beginning, government and administration appear formidable and inhibiting.

University, Baroda. She has had an illustrious ca- reer as a member of the Indian Administrative Service from 1956 to 1992, holding responsible positions in the State (Kerala), in the Government of India and with the United Nations.

The Ever After of Ashwin Rao
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789384030384; Softcover; New; 
Shorlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize 2014 From internationally acclaimed New Face of Fiction author Padma Viswanathan, a stunning new work set among families of those who lost loved ones in the 1985 Air India bombing, registering the unexpected reverberations of this tragedy in the lives of its survivors. The Ever After of Ashwin Rao demonstrates that violent politics are all-too-often homegrown in North America but ignored at our peril.In 2004, almost twenty years after the fatal bombing of an Air India flight from Vancouver, two suspects finally — are on trial for the crime. Ashwin Rao, an Indian psychologist trained in Canada, comes back to do a “study of comparative grief,” interviewing people who lost loved ones in the attack. What he neglects to mention is that he, too, had family members who died on the plane. Then, to his delight and fear, he becomes embroiled in the lives of one family caught in the undertow of the tragedy, and privy to their secrets. This surprising emotional connection sparks him to confront his own losses. The Ever After of Ashwin Rao imagines the lasting emotional and political consequences of a real-life act of terror, confronting what we might learn to live with and what we can live without. 109675

23737 Padmakara Translation Group (trs); Commentary By Jamgön Mipham
Introduction to the Middle Way: Candrakirti's Madhyamakavatara with Commentary By Jamgön Mipham
Shambhala; Boston, USA; 2005; 1590300092; First Edition; Paperback; New; 6 x 9 Inches 
Introduction to the Middle Way presents an adventure into the heart of Buddhist wisdom through the Madhyamika, or "middle way," teachings, which are designed to take the ordinary intellect to the limit of its powers and then show that there is more. This book includes a verse translation of the Madhyamakavatara by the renowned seventh-century Indian master Chandrakirti, an extremely influential text of Mahayana Buddhism, followed by an exhaustive logical explanation of its meaning by the modern Tibetan master Jamgön Mipham, composed approximately twelve centuries later. Chandrakirti's work is an introduction to the Madhyamika teachings of Nagarjuna, which are themselves a systematization of the Prajnaparamita, or "Perfection of Wisdom" literature, the sutras on the crucial but elusive concept of emptiness. Chandrakirti's work has been accepted throughout Tibetan Buddhism as the highest expression of the Buddhist view on the sutra level. With Jamgön Mipham's commentary, it is a definitive presentation of the wisdom of emptiness, a central theme of Buddhist teachings. This book is a core study text for both academic students and practitioners of Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism. Printed Pages: 432. 038720

Gender & Salvation: Jaina Debates on the Spiritual Liberation of Women
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1991; 81-215-0553-2; First Indian Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
Among the religious traditions of India, only that of Jainas includes a substantial number of women in the community of religious aspirants who renounce the household life and take the vows of mendicancy. This phenomenon might suggest that Jaina women enjoy a status of religious and spiritual equality unparalleled elsewhere on the subcontinent, but even within the Jaina tradition there exists a deep schism concerning that status. In this volume, Professor Jaini brings to light heretofore untranslated texts evidencing a centuries-old debate between the two principal Jaina sects, the Digambaras and the Svetambaras, on the critical issue of whether or not women can attain spiritual liberation (moksa). The debate focuses on the question of whether total renunciation of clothing is a prerequisite to moksa. For the Digambaras, the example of total nudity set by Mahavira (599-527 B.C.), the central spiritual figure of Jainism, mandates an identical practice for all who aspire to the highest levels of religious attainment; Digambara monks therefore go about naked. For the Svetambaras, the renunciation necessary for such attainment is neither affected nor confirmed by the absence of clothes; Svetambara monks therefore go about clad in cotton robes. Both sects agree, however, that nudity is not permitted for women under any circumstances. This necessitates the conclusion that for the Digambaras a woman cannot attain moksa, while for the Svetambaras she can. From this conclusion follows a heated debate on a question of fundamental importance, namely, the manner, in which gender-based differences of biology and life experience may condition or limit an individual's ability to accomplish the ultimate religious goal. In addressing that question, the Jaina thinkers whose words are here translated demonstrate through logical analysis is a level of insight into the constraints on women and their spiritual attainments that transcends the context of the discussion and relates directly to current debates on the effect of gender in our own society.

The Jaina Path of Purification
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8120815785; Fourth Reprint; Softcover; New; 
The religious tradition of the Jainas, unique in many respects, presents a fascinating array of doctrinal and social structures that stem from the anti-vedic movements of ancient times. Drawing extensively on primary sources, Professor Jaini provides a comprehensive introduction to the Jaina experience. Beginning with the Life of Mahavira the author elucidates the essentials of Jaina cosmology and philosophy as well as of the "path of purification" through which the soul may escape from its Karmic defilements and attain eternal salvation. This path constitutes the integral element within the broader frame-work of Jaina literature, lay ritual and the socio-historical factors, which enabled Jainism to survive and prosper to the present day. In particular, the author has examined the cardinal doctrine of ahimsa (non-harming), both in its impact upon Jaina religious consciousness and as a standard in applying its sacred principles to the conduct of every day life.Printed Pages: 392. 102441

Women and Work (Readings on the Economy, Polity and Society)
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125047778; Softcover; New; 
The notion of ‘work and employment’ of ‘work and employment’ for women is complex. While economic factors predominantly determine a man’s participation in employment, the reasons why women work, or do not work, or whether they work part-time or full-time, can be diverse and are often rooted in a complex interplay of economic, cultural, social and personal factors. In India, as in most other parts of the world, fewer women participate in employment compared to men. This is the backdrop against which Women and Work analyses a wide range of issues—from what counts for ‘work’ to the economic contribution of women to how gendering of work has many significant and related consequences. The introduction talks of how oppression faced by wage-earning women is the result of patriarchal norms and capitalist relations of production. It also demonstrates how policies and programmes anchored around data based on national income accounts and/or labour force surveys seriously disadvantage women in more ways than one. Divided into four sections, the articles focus on women engaged in varied work—paddy-growers in West Bengal, beedi-rollers in Tamil Nadu, laceworkers in Andhra Pradesh and bardancers in Maharashtra—all of whom live and work in dismal conditions, and earn paltry incomes. Bringing together well-known sociologists and economists, this volume will be useful for students and scholars of sociology, economics, political science and women’s studies.Printed Pages: 408. 101748

Recess: The Penguin Book of Schooldays
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0143100114; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Whatever else we forget in our lives, memories of our schooldays stay on forever. We may think of them with longing or wish that we could forget about them, but there’s no getting away from them. That crucial winning run scored in an inter-class match will act as a salve for all future failures; that prefectship denied in high school will fester despite the progress one may have made in life thereafter. Recess: The Penguin Book of Schooldays brings together over fifty moving and human accounts of school, covering a period of around 200 years, as seen through the eyes of some of the finest minds India has produced—from Lal Behari Dey and Dayananda Saraswati to Premchand and Harivansh Rai Bachchan; from André Béteille and Nirad Chaudhuri to Vikram Seth and Amit Chaudhuri; from Ismat Chughtai and Sheila Dhar to Dilip Simeon and Shuddhabrata Sengupta. The poems, essays and stories in Recess take us to the heart of the Indian school experience covering missionary, religious, residential, municipal, village and refugee schools; and reflect on the different emotions that this institution evokes: indifference, rage, fond nostalgia. While Satyajit Ray remembers participating in an event called ‘musical drawing’ and writing with ‘nibs that had to be dipped into the inkwells built into our desks’, Ved Mehta writes about learning Braille for the first time and taking part in a variety of races: Biscuit Race, Leapfrog Race. Mihir Bose reminisces about his days at St. Xavier’s High School, Bombay, and its sports master Father Fritz who predicted Sunil Gavaskar’s rise to greatness as a cricketer even as P.T. Usha shares her experiences at the Cannanore Sports Division, training for future glory while coming to terms with eating eggs and meat. Farrukh Dhondy’s delightful take on the eternal conflict between day scholars and boarders contrasts with Omprakash Valmiki’s sombre account of the obstacles he faced as an untouchable in order to become the first high school graduate of his neighbourhood. This magnificent collection casts a clear and mostly unsentimental eye over a familiar childhood battleground, making us recall and re-examine our own schooldays. Palash Krishna Mehrotra’s delightfully irreverent introduction sets the tone for what is the most comprehensive anthology on the subject to date. Subversive and honest, Recess will remain the definitive record of the Indian experience of school for years to come. Printed Pages: 376. 026652

Punjabi Parmesan: Dispatches from a Europe in Crisis
Penguin Books India Pvt. Ltd.; Delhi, India; 2013; 0670086290; Softcover; New; 
In 2009, after several years in China, journalist Pallavi Aiyar moved to Brussels, the headquarters of the European Union, to discover a Europe plagued by a financial crisis, and unsure of its place in a world where new Asian challengers are eroding its old and comfortable certainties. With a lively mix of memoir, reportage and analysis, Aiyar takes the reader on a romp across the continent as she meets workaholic Indian diamond merchants in Antwerp, upstart Chinese wine barons in Bordeaux, Sikh farmhands in the Italian countryside, and Indian engineers running offshore energy turbines in Belgium.In the Europe of today everything is in flux, as she discovers through conversations with Muslim immigrants struggling to define their identities, the austere bosses of Germany’s world-beating companies, and bewildered Eurocrats struggling to save the EU from splitting apart. Examining the diverse challenges the continent faces today—among them, bloated welfare states, the accommodation of Islam, the European ambitions of Indian and Chinese entrepreneurs, and the fissures that threaten to break up this union of diverse nations—Punjabi Parmesan takes a panoramic look at Europe’s first-world crisis from a unique India–China perspective.Printed Pages: 344. 103438

Trade and Empire in Western India" 1784-1806
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 0521058937; Reissue; Paperback; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This study examines the influence of commercial interests on the expansion of the British Empire in Western India in the age of Cornwallis and Wellesley. It questions some of the assumptions which have been accepted as explanations of British imperialism in that part of India. The chief of these is that the reform of the East India Company's administration in the 1780s brought the policy of the Bombay presidency under the firm control of the governor-general in Bengal and of the Court of Directors and the Board of Control in London. The interpretation which has followed this assumption is that the East India Company extended its possessions along the west coast of India as a defence against the renewed French threat to India. The conclusions reached in this study are that, on the contrary, British policy in Western India are still largely independent of the authorities in Bengal and London, and that territorial expansion was a response chiefly to local conditions which were restricting the commercial interests of private British traders.

The Writings of Pamela Price: State, Politics, and Cultures in Modern South India (Honour, Authority, and Morality)
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8125051147; Hardcover; New; New; 
This volume brings together ten of Pamela Price’s essays that appeared between 1979 and 2010, presenting studies from different political domains and linguistic areas. They represent the author’s long involvement with political culture in south India. They focus on conceptions of honour, authority, and morality. Price examines both change and continuity in ideas, values and symbols in colonial and post colonial south Indian politics. She outlines evolution in cultural meanings of power and influence under imperial rule and later under electoral regimes, giving evidence of individual agency in cultural constructions. A running theme in political performances in post-colonial state politics, and one which she pursues in several of the essays in this collection, is the politics of honour and respect commanded by public figures that sheds light on the multifaceted nature of domination. Honour and respect and the dynamics of competition to command these attributes are topics of increasing interest in scholarship on south India to which she has made significant contributions.Printed Pages: 348. 101939

The Historiography of Modern Architecture
The MIT Press; Cambridge, Massachussets, USA; 1999; 0262201178; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; As New; 18.5 Cms x 24 Cms 
Literature, according to Panayotis Tournikiotis, has always exerted a powerful influence on architecture. Indeed, the study of modern architecture cannot be separated from a fascination with the texts that have tried to explain the idea of a new architecture in a new society. During the last forty years, the question of the relationship of architecture to its history -- of buildings to books -- has been one of the most important themes in debates about the course of architecture. The "historiography" of the title refers to the writing of history. Tournikiotis argues that the history of modern architecture tends to be written from the present, projecting back onto the past our current concerns, so that the "beginning" of the story really functions as a "representation" of its end. In this book, the buildings are the quotations, while the texts are the structure. Tournikiotis focuses on a group of books by major historians of the twentieth century: Nikolaus Pevsner, Emil Kaufmann, Siegfried Giedion, Bruno Zevi, Leonardo Benevolo, Henry-Russell Hitchcock, Reyner Banham, Peter Collins, and Manfredo Tafuri. In examining these writers' thoughts, he draws on concepts from critical theory, relating architecture to broader historical models. Panayotis Tournikiotis is Assistant Professor at the School of Architecture, National Technical University of Athens. Printed Pages: 358 with 34 illustrations. 018175

Sanctity is the very foundation of Indian life. The Etiology of the maladies today, including the deteriorating environment, stems from the erosion of purity.

The Yoga practices, the spiritual discipline and techniques of Meditation enable an aspirant to attain the knowledge of the Supreme Reality, the Paramataman. As Yoga and its therapeutic procedures have caught the attention of even Medical experts the world over today, a classical Yoga Sanskrit text like Hathayogapradipika is felt a necessary compendium.

23786 Pandey Bechan Sharma 'Ugra'; Translated from Hindi and with an Introduction By Ruth Vanita
Chocolate, and Other Writings on Male-Male Desire
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0195674863; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
The first public debate on homosexuality in modern India occurred in the 1920s, in the thick of the movement for national independence. It was sparked off by a collection of Hindi short stories entitled Chocolate (1927), by Hindi nationalist writer Pandey Bechan Sharma, better known by his pen-name ‘Ugra’ (extreme). The stories created such an uproar that almost every major public figure, from Premchand to Gandhi, joined in the debate. This first-ever English translation of Ugra’s work raises issues as salient today as eight decades ago: the interpretation of text, the role of fiction in relation to society, and the morality of same-sex erotic relationships. Ugra’s writings provide a window on nationalist constructions of Indian identity, especially in relation to ideas of India’s past; of gender, masculinity, and sexuality; and of Hindu-Muslim and Indian-foreign relations. Many of the prejudices and ideas bandied about in the 1920s still hold centre stage, and resurface in debates about sexuality, obscenity, censorship, and the civil rights of gay people. In her introduction, Ruth Vanita, who has extensively studied the pre-modern and modern history of same-sex relationships in India, discusses the book’s ambivalent portrayal of homosexuality and the debate it sparked off among Hindi littérateurs and nationalists.

The Illusion of Honour
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789380828923; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
"The Rai Bahadurs of Rasulabad are an old aristocratic family that has seen better days. Rahul, the scion of the family and a brilliant lawyer, is bitter about the rapid decline of his family's social standing in a world where everyone is taking the short cut to success. He is at the centre of a corruption scandal in the judiciary and it is hard to believe that he has been framed by a spurned lover. Sita, an abandoned child brought up by the Rai Bahadurs, discovers that she is an heiress. But when the mystery of her mother's identity is revealed it brings Rasulabad to the edge of a communal conflagration. She was groomed to be Rahul's wife one day. Can her hero worship of Rahul withstand his legal travails and her changed circumstances? Shahnaz has the world at her feet but wants more from life than high society can give. Will her growing involvement with community work at Rasulabad bring her closer to Rahul and displace Sita? The novel depicts the jet set lives of high society, precariously perched on a foundation of eroding values and growing social tensions. In the middle of this tumult is a simple love story of a boy who thought he wanted power and had no time for love; and a girl who had the world at her feet but gives it all up to follow her dreams."
