The Early History of Gold in India
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1992; 81-215-0548-6; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
Despite the magnitude of the discovery, there has never been a full scale study of the gold artifacts uncovered from a number of sites in India. An attempt has been made to reveal the importance of these archaeological discoveries through proper investigation and research. Besides a general discussion on the types of gold objects found, observations have been made on the techniques of gold ornaments in prehistoric and early historic India. The discoveries of the Indo-Greek, Kushan, Roman, and Gupta gold coins indicate the extensive use of the metal in the early historic period. The literary data suggest an abundance, and a wide diversity of gold and gold objects, which is not even remotely matched by the archaeological data. The present work analyses the relevant literary data and emphasizes virtually all important aspects of the Indian and foreign literary allusions to Indian gold. The geology of gold has been exhaustively presented. A detailed consideration of the geological data throws interesting light on the number of areas and ways in which the metal concerned could be obtained. Thus, the present work is an attempt at integration of data of all kinds on the early history of gold in India. The author has tried to bring out a basic history pattern by a systematic and critical evaluation of the available geological, archaeological and literary data.

Competing with the Best: Strategic Management of Indian Companies in a Globalizing Arena
Penguin Portfolio; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0670081787; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
When after forty years of licence-permit-raj India opened up its markets and took its first tentative steps in the global economy, no one could have imagined that in less than two decades Indian companies would be in a position to shape the global marketplace. With a sea change in their capabilities, beliefs and aspirations, Indian companies today come across as confident, aggressive and world class as they self-assuredly take over multinational giants like Corus. The closest analogy would be to Japanese companies of the early 1970s, and their potential impact on the world of business in coming decades could be as much, if not more. For this, Indian companies need to evolve original approaches, rather than depend on borrowed ideas, to engender inimitable and sustainable advantages in the global marketplace. Rajnish Karki, with over ten years’ experience in research and advisory work on the strategic management of Indian organizations, has evolved strategic management approaches for Indian companies, which are original and are grounded in the Indian economic and sociocultural context. In this book he shows how breakthrough strategic management results from seeing the big picture and aspiring high, conceiving well-aligned business and organizational components, and moving on with clarity, commitment and conviction. Competing with the Best bridges the theory and the practice of strategic management, focusing on under-explored yet globally significant aspects of Indian companies. Using the narrow-angle of eight case studies and the wide-angle of patterns and trends at aggregate level, it identifies four viable and effective configurations for Indian companies and describes the process of transformational and incremental changes. Competing with the Best is perhaps the first world-class book on the strategic management of Indian companies—an important constituent of emerging markets—and will prove indispensable for senior and top corporate executives, as well as researchers and students of management Printed Pages: 256. 022593

The Hindu Widow in Indian Literature
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2002; 0195658442; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book examines the theme of widowhood, over the last 150 years, in novels as different as Indira Goswami’ s Neelkanthi Braj Bankimchandra’ s Vishavriksha and Krisnakanter Uil Rabindranath Tagore’ s Chokher Bali and Gora Saratchandra’ s Bada Didi and Charitraheeen Premchand’ s Prema and Vardaan Mohan Rakesh’ s Antaral and Rajinder Singh Bedi’ s Ik Chadder Maili Si. The author shows how these novels written in eight Indian languages— Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Marathi, Oriya, Punjabi and Urdu— reveal attitudes, often contradictory, towards widows in upper-caste Hindu society.

Social Movements in India: Poverty, Power, and Politics
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0195678389; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
The role of social movements in Indian politics has always been important, even before independence from colonial rule in 1947. During the Nehruvian era, poverty alleviation was a foundational standard against which policy proposals and political claims were measured. At that time, movement activism was directly accountable to this state discourse. Today, however, the nature of social movements have undergone a transformation. In this volume--the first to focus on poverty and class in its analysis of social movements--a group of leading India scholars shows how they have had to change because poverty reduction no longer serves its earlier role as a political template. With key cases from across states and sectors, the book analyses their role in the constantly changing political landscape. It has distinctive chapters on gender, lower c astes, environment, the Hindu Right, Kerala, labor, farmers, and biotechnology mirroring change and social movements in a comprehensive fashion. With contributions from renowned academics, this informed, accessible, and analytical anthology will be of immense importance to students and researchers in political science, sociology, and history. It will be indispensable for postgraduate courses on social movements. Policy planners and an informed general audience will also find it useful. Printed Pages: 320. 013587

The Origins of the Kashmir Dispute and Pakistan
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789383649419; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
India and Pakistan have disputed over many ‘facts’ related to their 1947-49 conflict over Jammu & Kashmir but none so heavily as India’s conviction that the government of Pakistan was involved in the tribal invasion of Jammu & Kashmir in October 1947. This study is a re-examination of that conflict, its immediate background and aftermath, against the twin backdrops of de-colonisation and the early Cold War. Simultaneously, it attempts to go beyond and cover the comparatively less written about British interests and initiatives in Kashmir. Covering the early history and the historiography of the dispute, it is a chronologically arranged narrative from the events in Poonch and Gilgit over August-September 1947, through the action-packed months of October-December, the diplomacy around the war, to the summer and winter battles of 1948 and ceasefire of January 1949. It is a story of individuals, issues, the times in which they emerged and their inter-connectedness with the fears and hopes of others who shared that time and space. It is a story of the sub-continental desires and the international within which the dispute evolved in its first two years. It traces a diverse and dynamic geo-political context of the conflict and shows the elements of continuity and change from the historical understanding of the defence of the Indian sub-continent, in the aftermath of its independence and partition. Based on considerable primary and published sources, this study takes a re-look at the hopes, fears and desires of India, Pakistan and Britain from the 1947-49 Kashmir conflict. Emerging alongside the embers of partition of British India in 1947, the dispute continues to smoulder. In this case too, as Ilan Pappe demonstrated elsewhere, the deeply involved British offer the ‘best vantage point’ for describing conflicts in the wake of empire. These can be helpfully understood by situating them in their wider context and by examining the inter-linkages between their local, regional and international dimensions.Printed Pages: 78. 105048

Religion Dharma and Polity
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8180698602; Hardcover; New; New; 
The purpose of this collection is to underscore that tradition forms the framework of political thought in India. It evidences continuity and change, adaptive of new situations and search for unending potentialities for sustaining purposive sovereignty. Indifferent and unresponsive thinking in intellectual analyses and indifference to even the minor impartiality of appreciation of the diverse aspects of human achievement deceive the self-satisfied distinctiveness of colonial mind-set and stereotypes. This is misleading about the concept of religion and dharma. The misunderstandings again put a question mark on the role of religion and dharma in politics. In this volume, eminent theorists have contributed to resolving the above dilemma and for this purpose they have analysed the major thought of representative Indian thinkers.

Monetary Policy in a Globalized Economy: A Practitioner's View
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2009; 0195697359; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
As a result of comprehensive but gradual and calibrated reforms, India's financial sector has undergone a transition from the highly controlled and repressed regime of the early 1990s to one that is increasingly market-based. A similar regime shift has characterized the conduct of monetary policy and operations in India. The reforms have contributed to a noteworthy acceleration in growth. Most importantly, unlike many other economies, financial stability has been maintained even as there has been a significant opening of the economy. Over the past decade, interest in the conduct of monetary policy and in the regulation and supervision of the financial sector has attracted global attention. This volume focuses on the evolution of banking and finance and the role of central banking. It provides the perspective of a practising central banker on a range of topical issues relating to the conduct of monetary policy and management of the financial sector. The impact of the ongoing global financial crisis on India and the policy responses are also discussed. 029163

As an only son, Kiran has obligations - to excel in his studies, find a nice Indian girl, and, make his mother and father proud. If only Kiran had anything in common with other Indian kids besides the colour of his skin. They reject him at every turn, and his cretinous American schoolmates are no better. Kiran's not-so-well-kept secrets don't endear him to any group. Playing with dolls; choosing ballet over basketball; taking the school's annual talent show way too seriously. the very things that make Kiran who he is also make him the star of his own personal freak show. And then one fateful day, a revelation: perhaps his desires aren't too earthly, but too divine. Perhaps the solution to the mystery of his existence has been before him since birth. For Kiran Sharma, a long, strange trip is about to begin - a journey so sublime, so ridiculous, so painfully beautiful, that it can only lead to the truth. Printed Pages: 248. 108478

Secular India: Politics of Minorityism
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789380828688; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Appeasement politics is a double-edged sword. The section of the population that is treated as more equal than others is never quite satisfied with the magnitude of doles coming its way, and the section that is treated as merely equal accuses the state of step-motherly treatment. Then begins an unseemly tussle between the appeaser and its counter-communal rival to treat the two groups as their respective vote banks. In the process, the nation stands divided forever. Secular India... is a compilation of essays by country's prominent citizens that go beyond boundaries of religion and caste. Issues have been examined to deal with backwardness.Printed Pages: 255. 104823

Valabhi Temples in North India
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8173053952; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 22 x 28 Cm 
"The main modes of North Indian temples include Latina, Phamsana, Shekhari and Valabhi types. They have been discussed in most of the works on Indian temples. However, separate studies on these forms have not been attempted so far. This monograph is a pioneering attempt in this regard. It is focussed only on the Valabhi mode of temples, which comprise ayatakara talachhanda yojana (rectangular ground plan), a doorway to one of its longer parsvas (side) and a semi-cylindrical sikhara (superstructure). About fifty percent of there temples are in Uttarakhand, most of which have been brought to light by the author and his colleagues. Other temples discussed in this work are located in Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, West Bengal, Orissa, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Gujarat. Apart from documenting the existing Valabhi temples, this work traces the evolution of Valabhi structure, its transformation into a temple, literary references, dedication and architectural features in a chronological order, from the very beginning to the medieval period. The comprehensive study, lavishly illustrated with photographs and analytical drawings, is expected to provide new insights into the appreciation of Valabhi temples and its various aspects."

Invisible City: The Hidden Monuments of Delhi
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 8189738771; Hardcover; New; New; 
Of all the metros in the country Delhi holds the distinction of being the nerve center of power not only in present times but also in the years past. This is all the more reflected in the multitude of old-world buildings that grace the historic landscape of the city. It comes as a surprise to know that many of these historic buildings are exiled from public view simply because nobody knows about their existence. Rakshanda Jalil’s book Invisible City: The Hidden Monuments of Delhi focuses on 49 such monuments and provides the reader with quick facts about the buildings, their surroundings, genesis and current conditions. Divided into seven short sections: Pre-Sultanate, Sultanate, Tughlaq, Saiyyid, Lodi, Mughal and post-Mughal, it has a foreword by the renowned writer Khushwant Singh. It is packed with pictures, illustrations and maps and is definitely a great resource for history buffs as well as to all those wishing to preserve the historical heritage of the city.Printed Pages: 342 with 293 photographs & 1 map. 106568

Pigeons of the Domes: Stories on Communalism
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789385285097; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Pigeons of the Dome: Stories on Communalism is a collection of short stories depicting the various hues and shades of the demon of communalism that lurks within Indian society.A word that crops up repeatedly in the stories included here is fasaad in Urdu and danga in Hindi; translated as ‘riot’ in English, it has an entirely and peculiarly Indian connotation. When used in India, a riot is more often than not a clash between two communities and is a word loaded with communal intent unlike the original English usage whereby the word, free of any sociological baggage, merely refers to unruly or disorderly conduct by a group of people.Using the analogy of the beasts, exploring the situation in large cities and in small hamlets, the authors and translators bring to the fore the lurking danger that threatens the secular fabric of the country. An excellent collection that makes the reader pause and analyse.Printed Pages: 283. 103608

New Urdu Writings from India and Pakistan
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789383260379; Softcover; New; 
This could easily be for audiences who read in both languages: Hindi and English. Further with Sufism coming up on the charts in music and films, this anthology could well become a favorite with those who are passionate about the sensibilities in the subcontinent: India, Pakistan and even Bangladesh. The sense of a great literary tradition and emotions which are similar. As the editor of this collection, Rakhshanda Jalil makes it amply clear in the Introduction It will make very little difference if you read this book from back to front or the other, more conventional way, around and puts the 30 stories from India and Pakistan in the context of a shared language involving similar emotions. If in the Mourner of the Feet, an itinerant shoe witnesses an adulterous wife with merciless hips conducting her marital life, in Revulsion a young boy chances upon the sexual escapades of an ageing maid with young servant boys, almost mirroring the desperation of the household ; in Joginder Pauls story, the futility of war between countries throws up a tragic-comic situation involving the picture of a girl child, even as a father awaiting his sons arrival on an airplane fervently prays for his co-travellers in Mansha Yads story; Laila in Jeelani Banos Empty Bottles is urban affluent and decidedly rejects her poetic lover for the comforts in her parents home and Sonu in Tarannum Riyazs City struggles to care for his infant sister and a dead mother in their fortified and spacious flat; Farzana blames her burqa for her transgression involving the murder of her children while Noor Bano is forcibly married to the Holy Quran and defiantly 109617

Immunising the Children of the World
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8125064192; Hardcover; New; New; 
In Immunising the Children of the World, Ralph H. Henderson tells the story of WHO’s contributions to the global efforts to ensure worldwide immunisation. He served with the Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI) during its formative years as Programme Manager and then Director from 1977 to 1989 before becoming a WHO Assistant Director-General from 1990 to 1999. Written in the form of a professional memoir, the author describes the technical details and political intrigues behind these efforts. The book begins by describing his service with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in West Africa. It concludes with an account of an attempt to establish for WHO the ‘Health Leadership Service’, a young professionals programme modelled on the Epidemic Intelligence Service of the CDC. His story is supplemented with posters, photographs, and detailed charts and figures that bring to life a largely ignored public health triumph.Engaging and informative, this book will be of interest to students, scholars and researchers of public health and medical sociology.

This book is based on the philosophy of Kashmir Shaivism. The style of writing is cryptic and as such the author expects the readers to be quite alert and receptive. In a number of cases more than one reading may be necessary to understand the true import of some of the statements. Some changes may appear to be abrupt and unrelated to the context. However at the end a clear and deep pattern emerges and it transforms the reader. 102315

The Bureaucratic Experience: The Post-Modern Challenge (Fifth Edition)
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2010; 9789380502175; Fifth Edition; Softcover; New; 
The essential concepts of Ralph P. Hummel’s various editions of “The Bureaucratic Experience” are unfailingly about freedom. This edition emphasises the impact of the bureaucracy on freedom, reason and the self-made order of free people. It transcends the traditional discourse between the critical school of bureaucratic analysis and those who find a measure of value in the operations of bureaucratic operations. It uses another perspective to shed light on the two-sided debate to see if there is a fresh antithetical understanding that helps appreciate the bureaucratic experience. This fifth edition remains true to the idea that humans are not a form of intelligence easily replicated by machines and takes on the computer as the representative of bureaucracy itself. After the journey through philosophical thinking, the book makes its way to an independent point, a tradition with the author. Most people will identify with the title of the book, because who among us has not had “The Bureaucratic Experience”? This is a compelling book that must be read by all to determine what must be the future of free men and women capable of reasoning out their own fate.Printed Pages: 268. 104410

The Famous Ghalib: The Sound of My Moving Pen
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 9789351941071; Softcover; New; 
The second edition of Ralph Russell’s critically acclaimed The Famous Ghalib has been put together according to guidance left by the author/translator before his death in 2008. This book introduces Ghalib to anyone who wants to find out why his poetry has inspired generations of Urdu speakers and many others besides. It explains the form of poetry in which Ghalib wrote, and how he used its symbolism to express his response both to the universal experiences of life and to the times that he himself lived through. With over 200 couplets in Ralph Russell’s translations, alongside the original Urdu – and also transcribed using both English and Hindi scripts, this is a must have for all poetry lovers. The translations are as concise as the original, matching Ghalib’s intensity with words chosen to convey precise meaning; and they do this in English which flows naturally and with unobtrusive poetic metre.

Hymns of the Rgveda
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1999; 812080046X; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Rgveda, the oldest literary record of the Aryan race and the sacred book of the Hindus, has very few authentic translations in English. Most of the translations are only the imitations of interpretations which the mediaeval Hindus, as represented by Sayana, have offered. Griffith`s is the only translation which, though guided by Sayana, ventures to deviate from him widely and frequently. It may be ranked as an independent translation hitherto made in English. But this century old translation needed re-editing, necessitating a new edition incorporating improvements without disturbing the original. In this edition the Greek letters have been romanized wherever there are references in the footnotes from the Greek language. The system of transcription has been modernized even in regard to Avestan words in the footnotes, following the system of Bartholomae. The complete translation has been published in a single volume for the convenience of the reader. Each and every figure in the index has been duly checked and revised.Printed Pages: 719. 102071

Hymns of the Samaveda: trans. Into English with a popular Commentary
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8121500222; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Third in the order of the Vedic Samhitas or collections, the Samaveda represents the middle phase of the older Vedic literature. It also exemplifies an early stage of literary activity in the Indian context and bears reflections of Indo-Aryan religious life and thought. Samaveda, which mainly consists of musical hymns largely drawn from the Rgveda, the oldest of the four Vedic texts, is only next in sanctity and liturgical significance to the latter. On account of melodious nature of its verses which were intended to be sung by the udgatri or chanter-priest during the course of the performance of grand sacrificial rituals connected chiefly with the preparation of juice out of the sacred Soma creeper, the giver of mystic joy, it had special importance. In fact the Samaveda together with the Yajurveda, marks an important period of the growth of Vedic sacrifices from a simple domestic ritual to a complex and grand ceremonial conducted by four special priests. Besides, it also has deep connections with the antiquity of Indian Music, with at least two specialized groups of chanters viz., the Udichya-Samagas or the northern singers of Sama (melody) and the Prachya-Samagas or eastern singers, of which the former might represent the older tradition of Sama recitation. According to the traditional view, the Samaveda had originally about a thousand sakhas or branches but today only a few of them are extent, the rest are believed to have been lost before the text itself was reduced to writing. The present translation of Samaveda is considered as one of the authentic rendering of the Vedic text in fine metrical English with explanatory notes and useful indices without any element of subjectivity or prejudice.

Hymns of the Rgveda: trans. Into English with a popular Commentary, 2 Vols.
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1999; 8121500419; Reprint; Cloth; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The Rgveda or the Veda of Praise is the oldest extant literary work in the world. The Hindus have always revered it as the fountain of divine wisdom. All schools of Hindu philosophy claim inspiration from it. The Rgveda contains 1017 hymns (or 1028 according to Valakhilyas) arranged in ten mandalas or books. The first book contains hymns of different character; the seven books, from the second to the eighth, consist of groups of hymns, each group ascribed to one sage or to the members of his family. The groups arranged in order of deities, with Agni in the vanguard followed by Indra, Vayu and others. The poetic quality of the hymns has had different appeal. Most scholars agree that some, if not all, touch sublime heights of poetry. The monotonous repetition of poetasters. They consider the merits of the Rgveda more historic and less poetic. The present translation of Rgveda is considered as one of the most authentic rendering of the Vedic text in fine metrical English with explanatory notes and useful indices. Mainly he has relied on Sayana's commentary for exposition, though departing from it at his convenience. Printed Pages: 1490. 024243

The Texts of the White Yajurveda or Vajasaneya-Samhita: trans. With a popular Commentary
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1987; 8121500478; Reprint; Cloth; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The four Vedas, Rg, Yajur, Sama and Atharva, the foundations, on which the grand and most ancient edifice of Hindu religion and philosophy are built. The Yajurveda ranks second in importance and is divided into two collections, Taittiriya and Vajasaneya, better known as Krishna or Black and Shukla or White Yajurveda. The latter is called white because its arrangement is systematic, orderly and free of obscurities which bedevil the former. The Yajurveda is actually a handbook or manual for the Adhvaryu priests, who specialized in conducting sacrifices. The White Yajurveda contains 2000 hymns arranged in forty books. Most of the hymns are culled from the Rgveda. The Yajur or sacrificial formulas are in prose, to be intoned in measured cadence. The important sacrifices dealt here are: Asvamedha or horse sacrifice, Purushamedha or sacrifice at full and new moon. Griffith's translation is true to the original. It explains recondite portions with the unobtrusive commentary of Mahidara. Printed Pages: 400. 018992

Hymns of the Atharvaveda: trans. Into English with a popular commentary, and with intro. And new appendix by Dr. S.R. Sehgal and a foreword by Dr. Siddheshwar Varma, 2 vols.
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8121500230; Reprint; Cloth; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
In India both the Rgveda and the Atharvaveda represent the earliest age in the history of sacred literature. However the spirit of the Atharvaveda breathes of a prehistoric stage. Some of its charms, witchcrafts and exorcism go back to Indo-European period. Dr. A. Kuhn has proved how some of its spells for curing bodily ailments agree in purpose and content as well as to some extent even in form, with certain old German, Lettic and Russian charms. Every evil thing in nature, from a drought to a fever or bad qualities of the human heart, is personified and made the object of terror-stricken propitiation, or of attempt at circumvention through witchcraft, or the instrument of harm to others through the same compelling nature. Here as there, worship takes the form of conjuring, not prayer; its ministers are sorcerers, not priests. The synonyms of the Atharvaveda like Atharvangirasah, Bhrgavangirasah and Brahmaveda speak of the development and the status it has enjoyed from time to time. In domestic sacrifices the Atharvan influence has been indelible. A deep study of the Atharvaveda and other Vedic texts unfolds new dimensions to modern sciences namely Comparative Philology, Comparative Mythology, Comparative Religion and Comparative Literature. Though Vedic literature the practical teaching of the classical languages in Europe has undergone an important change. The intellectual debt of Europe to India has thus been immense. It may perhaps become greater still in these post-independence years. Its special features include: a comparative study of the Saunaka and the Paippalada schools; and pointed references to the latest but lesser known researches expressed in Sanskrit language in the sixteen volumes Vedic Padanukramakosa by Acarya Dr. Vishva Bandhu Shastri and his distinguishes colleagues. This will evoke response from enlightened scholars for our prospective publications on other works. Printed Pages: 954. 018991

Night of the Gods: Durga Puja and the Legitimation of Power in Rural Bengal
Orient BlackSwan/RCS Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8192304612; Hardcover; New; New; 
Durga Puja is the most visible annual event in West Bengal. This ethnographic account shows that Durga Puja in the countryside was a very different event from the modern version of the puja, one that symbolized legitimacy and counterposed generous redistribution against the ruthless collection of revenues. The offerings and sacrifices that were integral to the traditional pujas provided communion for the landholding families as well as their dependents in the community. Printed Pages: 240. 101797

Thirteen Festivals: A Ritual Year in Bengal
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8192304639; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
An expression common among Bengali Hindus says baro mase, tero parban, ‘in twelve months there are thirteen festivals.’ While each of these occasions is built around the worship of a particular god or goddess, they are also performances where setting, attire, ornamentation, recitation, music, and sometimes theater are brought together. Thirteen dramatically understates the number of such occasions around the year. Previous books in this series have described and analyzed the axial rituals in the annual cycle in the village of Kelomal, Purba Medinipur, West Bengal. These are the famous Sanskritic Durga Puja, the high point of the autumn in Bengal, and the less well known vernacular spring ritual of Gajan, devoted to Siva. The present work deals with the great variety of rituals that take place during the remainder of the year, including worship of Sitala, goddess of disease and mother of the village; Manasa, goddess of snakes; Laksmi, embodiment of prosperity dwelling in the rice crop; Krsna, who offers the possibility of liberation; Satya Narayana, who has a Muslim personality as Satya Pir; and the goddesses worshiped by women within the house: Sasthi, goddess of children; the auspicious Mangal Candi; and Bipattarini, who saves people from danger.
