The Paramaras C. 700-1305 A.D.)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1970; 8121504104; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
The present work is the history of the Paramaras and the territories ruled over by them. Coming from somewhere in the vicinity of Mt. Abu of which the Agnikula myth may be a distant echo, the Paramaras established a number of kingdoms in Malwa and the adjacent districts, Arbudamandala, Vagada, Bhimal-Kiradu and Jalore. During the course of nearly five hundred years of their political existence (c. 800-1305 A.D.) they ruled over extensive territories, the combined strength of which was more than that of any other contemporary Hindu dynasty of Northern India. Among all the Paramara kingdoms that of Malwa rose to great heights. Founded by Upendra sometime in the last decade of the 8th Century A.D. it became the strongest kingdom in central and western India under its ambitious and imperial rulers Vakpati-Munja (974-994 A.D.) and Bhoja (1010-1055 A.D.). Thereafter, passing through varying fortunes it continued its existence till the early years of the 14th century A.D. when it finally succumbed before the Khalji Sultans of Delhi. The greatest contribution of the Paramaras seems to be in the spheres of literature, arts and architecture. The names of Munja and Bhoja have become a legend. Their capital cities Dhara and Ujjain became centres of literary and artistic activities where scholars and artists gathered from all over the country. An attempt has been made for the first time into the investigation of the administrative system, religion, social and economic conditions in the Paramaras' kingdoms. A brief survey of the literary and artistic achievements, accompanied with a number of illustrations has been added in order to give some completeness to the picture of life as it was lived in those days. In reconstructing the history of the Paramara kingdoms the author has made a critical and judicious use of information scattered through a wide range source-material-epigraphs, literary works of the Brahmanas and the Jainas and the archaeological evidence. She has taken cognizance of the recently published monographs based on research done into the history of all the contemporary dynasties..

Human Rights Regime Dialogic and Debates
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 812121310X; Hardcover; New; New; 
Human Rights Regime encompasses all aspects of human development, not only in terms of per capita income but also in terms of enhancing equity (including gender dimensions), enabling greater voice and participation (including youth), confronting environmental pressures and demographic changes reducing vulnerabilities and building resilience for sustained progress. Human Development Report 2015 has taken it up further by focusing the human rights discourse on work, rather than jobs which has been a narrowed concept, despite all expertise and skills. The love, care and creativity at work have been acknowledged while setting up standards of growth and progress, wherein satisfaction and happiness at work seem to be the next concern of human development agenda. The book analyses different aspects of Human Rights Regime which has expanded its universe to new horizons and new paradigms overshadowing the existing world order and international politics. We hope that the book would contribute to further expansion of Human Rights Regime through dialogue and healthy debates. Printed Pages: 296. 111547

She juggles school work and fun, amidst schoolgirl crushes on boys including Ankit, and gossip and girl talk with her best friend. However, one day, an innocent crush explodes into a chain of irreversible events that result in changing her life forever. 18 years later, Diksha, the feisty, fun loving teenager, has been replaced by a very different version of her younger self. Now, at the age of 35, she is a jaded and bored housewife beneath the facade of a happily married woman. Married at 19 to Sandeep, a successful professional, and mother to a bright young boy, she is an unhappy woman who is dissatisfied in her loveless marriage and trapped in a domestic setting she no longer feels connected to.When an unfortunate incident involving her cousin’s husband takes place, it brings all her unmet hopes and desires to the fore, opening up possibilities Diksha never felt she would find again.

Why We Love the Way We Do
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789385724183; Softcover; New; 
Is it possible to tell if it is love or lust? How important is sex in a relationship? Why do break-ups hurt so much? How often should you message a person you fancy? How do you tell if someone is too young or too old for you?When it comes to relationships, these are the questions that most of us ponder. No matter how young or old we are, we are all looking for ways to make our relationships better. The best way to do that is to understand what makes us behave the way we do.Why We Love the Way We Do is a collection of essays on relationships based on Preeti Shenoy’s hugely popular columns in a national daily, in which the bestselling novelist discusses some of those issues and questions that people in relationships, or those hoping to be in one, face. The topics range from those particular to our modern, technology-filled world: how to move from an online relationship to a real-life one, how to find and keep love online, whether casual sex is worth the effort; to those immortal issues such as how men and women communicate differently, how to deal with a broken heart and how jealousy ruins a relationship.Filled with wonderful insights, sharp observations, humour and real-life examples, and written in her trademark lucid style, Preeti Shenoy brings to this book a perceptiveness about love and friendship that has made her the country’s highest-selling woman writer. 109747

Gender Discrimination in Land Ownership
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8178299429; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Contemporary India demonstrates a curious labyrinth of land ownership patterns and rights for women co-existing in various states and the inter-regional and intra-regional differences between communities and caste groups. Initiated by the Centre for Rural Studies of the Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration, Mussoorie, this volume is a collection of essays on Land Reforms in India by social scientists across disciplines from fourteen different states. The editors offer an in-depth analysis of the laws governing access and control of land and its ownership by women in the various states of India. They examine the diverse ways in which discrimination is experienced by them in their respective states and propose ways to counter this rampant gender inequality. With the help of data the book shows the differences in land ownership patterns and land rights for women across regions, communities and castes. It understands how and why the state laws in relation to agricultural labor, tenants and other farmers, land ceilings, allocation of surplus lands, distribution of ownership titles and other land reforms have failed to accommodate women. Gender Discrimination in Land Ownership examines the dominant role played by cultural and customary practices in depriving women of legal rights which they may have had, and proposes ways, based upon extensive field work as well as interaction between legal experts, social activists and bureaucrats, to counter gender inequality in all the major zones of India. This interdisciplinary study with its wide contemporary reach will encourage debates on existing society and the augmentation/implementation of laws and rights required to establish a more just and equitable society.

Press and Politics in India 1885-1905
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1970; 8121504090; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The two decades following 1885 constitute a germinal period in the history of Modern India. The general upsurge in the wake of nineteenth century renaissance began to express itself passionately in animated discussions and in the formation of political associations of which the Indian National Congress was a manifestation. The consequent release and interaction of such diverse forces as imperialism and independence, nationalism and separatism, obscurantism and enlightenment, moderation and extremism let to a strange alignment of political forces that have shaped India's political destiny. Besides depicting the variegated hues of this eventful period, the present study breaks new ground by analysing the hopes and aspirations of the people as reflected in the contemporary press. In the age of manually operated printing machines, journalism was so to say a cottage industry of the intelligentsia which had perceived the potentialities of this medium as a disseminator of views. After Ripon's repeal of the Vernacular Press Act, the development of press was so phenomenal that newspapers, more than any other institution, were reverberating the throbbing pulse of Vivekananda's age. This projection of the fourth estate adds a new dimension to the study, and, at the same time rescues from oblivion of the role of journalists (many of whom belonged to the vernacular press) who nourished nationalism at the grass roots and widened the base of freedom struggle. Events like the mass upheaval at the partition of Bengal, the Surat split in the Congress, the foundation of the All India Muslim League, legislative and constitutional reforms and the development of Paramountcy can be viewed in a new perspective.

Managed Chaos: The Fragility of the Chinese Miracle
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 813210076X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Managed Chaos reads into the resounding events of Chinese politics and economy, ending the schizophrenia that the readers have lived with. It delves deep into both elements: the economic narrative that China has sustained a near 10 per cent growth rate for 30 years and the political narrative that China is an increasingly fragile state, trapped in an incomplete transition from a totalitarian to a democratic market economy. For the first time, in his reading of China, the author consolidates this paradox by inferring that the cause behind both the growth and the political discontent is the politics of China. The defining features of this book are: " Armed with an original application of Michal Kalecki's theory of intermediate regimes, this book provides an explanation of China's explosive growth. " It indicates the formation of a new stratum, through winding up of centralised planning, the stratum of 'proto-bourgeoisie', consisting of the local cadres of the communist party, who can counter the central cadres for capturing investible resources of the state. " It creates a single politic-economic model that explains China's economic and political development. The causal connections in the model make it possible to predict China's future, and the challenges it faces. This book makes a significant contribution to the literature on Chinese political economy over the last three decades. It is a must read for all informed and serious readers. Policy makers and those studying international relations and politics will also find it useful. Printed Pages: 204. 028134

Development of Ladakh Himalaya: Recent Researches
Kalpaz Publications/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8178350955; Hardcover; New; New; 
Ladakh is one of the highest land in the world. The altitudes of the major inhabited areas in the region vary from 8,787 ft. in Kargil district to around 20,000 ft. in some places in Chang-Thang sub-division of Leh district. High altitude climate is notorious for its extremes. The raging duststorms on summer afternoons, seldom cloudy an unexpected snowfall are the uniqueness of this region.Ladakh, though, difficult part for the researches yet there is urgent need to have more pragmatic, problem oriented and field based research. The foregoing analysis gives a very dismal look for the coming years unless a new environmental ethic is involved wherein the nature of research, appraisal of the resources and the characteristic socio-economic aspects and the development measures will have to be reoriented so that these provide the basic outline for working out concrete strategies for dealing with the problems in the most appropriate manner.Printed Pages: 308. 106049

24488 Prema Srinivasan
Pure Vegetarian
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789382618867; Softcover; New; 
The key to the best vegetarian food of the Tamil world is home-style cooking. Prema Srinivasan leads us to that world with her Pure Vegetarian Cookbook, a guide which will have cooks and foodies perking up their ears and cleansing their palates in anticipation. If you thought rasams, sambhars and idlis summed up the cuisine of the area, Srinivasan points you to the countless variations on such dishes and others. The more than hundred recipes in this book offer up ways, influenced by region, community or simply, the seasons, to put the best platters on the table. They showcase the wide variety and infinite inventiveness of the Tamil kitchen. Lesser-known dishes, featuring specific types of grains and an awesome array of chutneys and pickles, are also lovingly included. Each section is accompanied by anecdotal explanations of the history and culture around the recipe and by beautifully illustrated plates showing the ingredients, the utensils, the presentation and of course, the food itself, each in relation to the rest. This book is a much-needed addition to the library of any discerning gourmet or anyone with an interest in the food and culture of Tamil India. 109590

The Illustrated Premchand: Selected Short Stories
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0195684184; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Munshi Premchand needs no introduction. In this collection, twelve stories from his oeuvre, carefully adapted and specially illustrated keeping young readers in mind, offer a vivid glimpse of life in the villages and small towns of north India. Each story is unique in its own way. ‘The Road to Salvation’ traces the theme of revenge and human folly, while ‘January Night’ is as much about the plight of Halku, a poor farmer at the mercy of the local landowner, as it is about the bond he shares with his dog Jabra. ‘A Catastrophe’ narrates the suffering of an old, destitute widow, and shows that bad deeds never go unpunished. ‘Penalty’ is a surprisingly short story about finding kindness and sympathy in a cruel world. ‘A Lesson in the Holy Life’ varies the tone of the volume with its humorous dig at fake saintliness. ‘Festival of Eid’ celebrates young Hamid’s act of love and sacrifice over the childish self-centredness of his friends. The self-appointed arbiter of correct social behaviour in ‘A Car-Splashing’ makes ‘good’ his escape in the end before himself coming to be judged. ‘The Story of Two Bullocks’ is a moving account of the close companionship shared between man and animal. ‘The Thakur’s Well’ exposes the cruelty of a caste-ridden society. ‘My Big Brother’ is a tender yet comic story about the changing relationship between two brothers. ‘The Naďve Friends’ looks at the misadventures of Keshav and Shyama as they go about trying to safeguard the eggs of a bird which has made a nest in their house. And finally, ‘The Power of a Curse’ is a dramatic tale of human deception, wrongdoing and its effects, and fear of divine retribution. The simplicity of these stories of everyday life and the accompanying visuals will delight young readers and Premchand fans alike. 027232
