We Lived Together
Pragati Publications; New Delhi, India; 2000; 817307075X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Throughout its History India has witnessed innumerable small and big instances of social tensions, political rivalries, economic instability and such other problems arising out of its religious and cultural diversities. But inspite of all these the people of India have lived together in harmony. The articles included in this volume directly or indirectly bear this out. However, the vast and varied experience of India obviously cannot be presented in its entirety in a modest volume like this and so we had to be selective. While some of the papers are confined to specific subjects covering a particular region and period Others deal with broader area and period of time. The Book covers a wide range of subjects such as the contribution of mystics to amity, globalization and cultural impact, Syrian Catholics and India, contribution of Sikh saints, Neo Vaishnavites, communal relations, assimilation of cultures,. social relations, cultural transformation, co-existence and so on. What is remarkable about the authors is that they have been able to avoid being either doctrinaire or sentimental even when the subject offered all the temptation to be so. Encompasses experiences of ancient, medieval, modern, and contemporary periods of Indian history.Printed Pages: 374. 101199

Dispelling the Silence: Stories from the Commonwealth Countries
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8125037047; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
This anthology, Dispelling the Silence: Stories from the Commonwealth Countries has been put together with the intention of introducing the undergraduate student to the literature and sociocultural contexts of eight nations that once belonged to the British Commonwealth. The selection has been made on the basis of the literary and aesthetic value of the stories themselves and also on the basis of the literary position occupied by the writers in the context of modern literature. As representative stories by representative writers, the collection has an eminent place in the history of world literatures. It includes the prose fiction of Rabindranath Tagore, Shashi Deshpande, Janet Frame, Chinua Achebe, Bessie Head and Henry Lawson among others. It leads the young reader from familiar to more unfamiliar experiences, from a perception of similarity to an understanding and appreciation of differences, from the sense of diversity to the sense of a deeper unity, all in the context of individual and sociocultural landscape. The exercises that follow each story draw the attention of students to the thematic and technical aspects and also lead them on to additional insights into the creativity of these writers. The anthology would be usable in general English as well as English major courses. Printed Pages: 140. 031451

Tribal Religions (History of Science, Philosophy and Culture in Indian Civilization: Vol. VII, Part 7)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8187586524; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 Cms x 29 Cms 
The Volumes of the Project of History of Indian Science, Philosophy and Culture [PHISPC] aim at discovering the main aspects of India's heritage and present them in an interrelated way. These volumes, in spite of their unitary look, recognize the difference between the areas of material civilization and those of ideational culture. The Project is not being executed by a single group of thinkers and writers who are methodologically uniform or ideologically identical in their commitments. In fact, contributions are made by different scholars with different ideological persuasions and methodological approaches. The Project is marked by what may be called 'methodological pluralism'. In spite of its primarily historical character, this Project, both in its conceptualization and execution has been shaped by many scholars drawn from different disciplines. It is for the first time that an endeavour of such a unique and comprehensive character has been undertaken to study critically a major world civilization. This Volume comprises twenty five papers on the traditional religious beliefs and ritualistic practices of various tribes of India, more particularly the tribes of North-Eastern India. Although tribal population constitutes eight percent of the total population of India, many Indians are ignorant of the tribal socio-cultural life and belief systems. Most of the tribes are still living in isolation from the Indian mainstream without much improvement in their socio-economic condition even after six decades of India becoming an independent republic. Moreover, the tribals are facing serious problems challenging their survival and cultural identity due to exploitation by the financially and politically privileged among the non-tribals. Their Indigenous religious faiths and practices have also been threatened by interference from some other communities, especially by the activities of the preachers and missionaries of other religions. The learned papers written by the experts in their own fields of specialization have thrown great light on the religion of various tribes and also addressed some of the pertinent problems that the tribal people have confronted.

Health Status of the Urban Elderly: A Medico-Social Study
B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8176462462; Hardcover; New; New; 
Health and well being of the elderly are found to be affected by many interwoven aspects of their social and physical Environment. Understanding the health study of elderly and the factors associated with it is important, as it helps to evolve suitable measures to improve the health condition of the elderly. Dr. S. Siva Raju has adopted a medico-sociological approach in this study, in which both the subjective perspective of the elderly and the professional perspective of a qualified medical practitioner forms the basis in assessing the health status of the elderly. The study is based on the field investigation of 300 elderly (with an equal proportion of men and women) belonging to three class categories - poor, middle income group and well-to-do, in 13 localities of Mumbai. The findings of the study showed that the influence of factors like, educational status, economic status, age, marital status, perception on living status, addictions, degree of feeling idle, anxieties and worries, type of health centre visited and whether or not taking medicines, on both the perceived and actual health status of the elderly is significant and vary considerably across and sexes of the elderly. The findings are unique in many respects and should have far-reaching, theoretical, methodological, policy and programme implications in the programmes meant to improve the quality of life of the elderly.

Networking of Organisations Working for Care of Older Persons in Mumbai: Issues and Implications
B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2002; 817646354X; Hardcover; New; New; 
The agencies working for the welfare of the elderly in India are categorized broadly into : Old age homes, day care centres, senior citizens associations and associations for retired persons. Given such variety of organisations with varying levels of activity in the field of geriatric care, it was felt necessary to focus on various activities of these organisations. In this book Networking of Organisations Working for Care of Older Persons in Mumbai-Issues and Implications Dr. Siva Raju has focused on their role, coverage, nature of activities, strengths, inadequacies, future programmes, extent of interaction with other organisations and their readiness to associate with other similar organisations. Altogether 70 organisations were found to be functioning in the city of Mumbai and they were all covered in the study. The study has brought out factors like, duration of establishment, status of registration, availability of medical professionals, financial sources and number of beneficiaries which are found to significantly influence the perceived strengths, inadequacies. and readiness of the organisations for networking. Their influence is differentially noticed among the various categories of organisations under focus. The findings reveal the urgency on the part of all those involved in the networking of the organisations to channelise their efforts and strengthen the activities of the organisations working for the care of the elderly in the city, and are unique in many respects and should have far-reaching policy and programme implications in the promotion of programmes with the networking of organisations working for the care of the elderly.

Towards a Theory of Rationality in Science: A Plea for Reasonableness
Global Vision Publishing House; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8182204534; Hardcover; New; New; 
This journey towards reasonableness, I trust, will be pleasant and useful not only for those who are familiar with philosophy of science, but also those who are really interested in science. All those who like to have a constructively critical look at science and all its activities and all those who dearly expect science to be human and holistic in all its endeavours, I hope, will find this journey inspiring and informative. Main features of this book are as follow: (i) to show that science is neither the paradigm of absolute knowledge, rational and objective to the core, nor an enterprise where ?anything goes?, with no rationality, no stability, no methodology and no objectivity; (ii) to show that both the rational and the non-rational models of science don?t give the actual picture of science, as it is revealed and substantiated by the recent historians of science; (iii) to show the need to go beyond the traditional accounts of rationality in order to have an adequate of understanding of what happens in the realm of science, including the issues of rationality in science; (iv) to explicate some features of the notion of reasonableness and show how these factors, especially the notion of Consensus in the Scientific Community, which are usually neglected in the traditional accounts of science, need to be earnestly considered to arrive at an integrated understanding of rationality in science in terms of reasonableness; and (v) to bring out some of the implications of taking reasonableness seriously in the Cotemporary Science and Society.

Rights, Deprivation and Disparity: Essays in Concepts and Measurement
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0195676432; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Welfare economics, social choice theory, distributional analysis, and poverty assessments are all-important ingredients of problems in concepts and measurement. These problems, in turn, have a bearing on the normative evaluation and critical description of development issues and policy intervention. As such, they constitute an important part of the normal discourse and activity of all involved citizens of a country. The issues under consideration in this book are therefore too important to be left entirely, or even in large measure, to the mercies of the ‘specialist’. The role of the latter is perhaps best confined to the endeavour of elucidating the analytical bases of such notions as freedom, liberty, inequality, and deprivation which all of us habitually think and talk about. This book, which is a collection of work done on these themes over a period of two decades, is an attempt at such elucidation. The underlying effort has been to deal with the salient conceptual issues informing the book’s concerns in direct and straightforward way. Printed Pages: 312. 015688

Bharatayuddha: An Old Javanese Poem and its Indian Sources
Aditya Prakashan; New Delhi, India; 1993; 8185689431; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Oriental Research he Bharatayuddha provides an extensive introduction, a Romanized text, an English translation, detailed annotations and indexes, of the Old Javanese poem or kakawin, uniquely written by two poets, mpu Sedah and Panuluh, in 1057 AD. The number of its manuscripts available today is an indication of the high esteem accorded to it throughout the centuries. With the ninety odd manuscripts that are now listed in the catalogues of public libraries in various countries, this kakawin of just over 730 stanzas is by far the most often copied Old Javanese work that has come down to us. The great war between the Pandawas and their cousins the Korawas is still the best known story among the Javanese people. The Mahabharata grew, developed and flourished in the island of Java, in -various forms of artistic expression, such as literary genres, sculpture, Painting and performing arts. More than half of the kakawin Poems discussed by Zoetmulder in his survey of Old Javanese belles-lettres have heros and heroines from the Mahabharata. Among them the Bharatayuddha is the most outstanding poetical work. The present edition of the Bharatayuddha is preceded by a detailed introduction on the relationship of the Sanskrit Mahabharata and the Parwas in prose, composition of the Bharatayuddha in the twelfth century, its comparison with the Mahabharata and the OJ Parwas, all its available manuscripts, their selection and arrangement. The Bharatayuddha is one the few OJ works that can be dated with certainty and thus provides a milestone in the literary chronology of Indonesia. The commencement of its composition can be determined to the day: 6 September 1157. It was written under the patronage of king Jayabhaya, who appears in the poem five times and is also known from three inscriptions. Sedah's work "faultless in its poetic qualities" was completed by poet Panuluh. By the order of king Jayabhaya himself, Panuluh undertook the task of completing the unfinished poem, commencing from the episode of Salya becoming commander of the Korawa army. This dual authorship is unique in Indonesian kakawin writing. The entire poem consists of 52 cantos with 731 verses : it is a saptasati or setticento. Panuluh has left to posterity two other major kakawins : Hariwamsa and Ghatotkacasraya, which makes him one of the most prolific kawi writers from ancient Indonesia. The editor Dr. S. Supomo draws comparison between the Bharatayuddha (BY) and the Sanskrit Mahabharata, and not with the Parwas : since only two parwas, Udyoga and Bhisma, are available in Old Javanese. Every verse of the BY is concorded with the Sanskrit text in the Critical Edition of the Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institute, with a summary of every Sanskrit passage. References to the corresponding passages of two parwas are also given. The BY follows the episodes of the war as recounted in the Sanskrit Mahabharata and its dependence on the Sanskrit Epic is clear. Certain parts of the narrative are derived from the OJ prose Parwas, and not directly from the Sanskrit itself. The prose Parwas had been in existence for more than a century and a half before poet Sedah began his composition of the BY. The ultimate source of the third part of the BY is the Dronaparvan in the Northern recension. Though the BY is less than four percent of the six corresponding Sanskrit parvans, it has passages with no comparable parts in Sanskrit. Additions and variations adapt the Epic to the Indonesian genius : for instance aji or battle scenes are one of the important requirements of a kakawin. New female characters like Ksitisundari and Sugandhika seem to have been widely known through oral tradition or wayang performances. The editor Dr. Supomo opines that OJ Dronaparwa, Kamaparwa, Salyaparwa and Sauptikaparwa existed before the composition of the Bharatayuddha in AD 1057. Then ten manuscripts, whose variant readings constitute the critical apparatus, have been described at length. This work is an in-depth study of the processes of acculturation with innovation. It is A Rich contribution to the History of the classical literature of Indonesia. It makes a delightful reading of the poem in its simple English rendering that echoes the charm of the original. The translation conveys the deft thrust of Indonesia's golden voice, the shapes of her heart, the spilling over of her Classical sparkle, as subtle as incense, the breath of her own heaven, whom the gods watch over.

The sutra-sthana contains the fundamental principles and basic concepts of Ayurvedic medicine and it happens to be one of the examinations going subject at the end of very first semester of BAMS course throughout the country. In recent years, because of the growing popularity of Ayurveda, many of the students, who have studied in English medium schools, colleges are also opting for BAMS course and because of non-availability of a student friendly English version of Astanga Samgraha-Sutrasthana are facing many hardships in grasping the subject matter in true spirit at the entry level itself. The English translator of this book, who taught Astanga Samgraha-Sutrasthana for number of years at Dr. BRKR Govt. Ayurvedic College, Hyderabad, knows the 'needs' of modern Ayurvedic students as well their 'Mindsets' very well. Keeping all these in mind, this book have been written in a student friendly language and style.A number of figures, illustrations and flow charts are incorporated to make the subject more appealing and revealing.In short, it is a value added English version of classical 'Astanga Samgraha' (Sutrasthana), especially 'made easy' to the beginners of Ayurveda."Printed Pages: 356. 100934

Landmarks of South Asian Civilizations: From Prehistory to the Independence of the Subcontinent

The Landmarks of South Asian Civilizations outlines the history and civilization of South Asia from prehistory to the Independence of the Sub-continent. Like other works on the subject it does not ignore Sri Lanka (Ceylon). Although it discusses the political development, the work mainly concentrates on trying to understand the process of continuity and change in life and condition of people through the ages. It analyses the main currents of religion, society, literature and art on the sub-continent in considerable depth. The chapter on the struggle for Independence is also detailed. The work is based mainly on original sources and the latest research on the subject. However, on the pattern of Cambridge histories and similar works, it has been decided not to burden it with footnotes although its presentation is critical. Printed Pages: 544. 002323

Freedom Struggle in Uttar Pradesh: Source-Material, 6 Vols.
Oxford University Press in Association with Indian Council of Historical Research; New Delhi, India; 2011; 0198069715; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Uttar Pradesh (UP) was the centre of great socio-political unrest during the tumultuous years 1857–9. Much of the story of this struggle lay undiscovered in files, bastas, official reports and original consultations, trial proceedings, newspapers, periodicals, diaries and memoirs of officers, and contemporary works—both in English and the vernacular. The six-volume Freedom Struggle in Uttar Pradesh brings together these hitherto unexplored sources to provide a detailed and authoritative account of the events of those turbulent years. The first volume in this series delves into the nature and origins of this struggle. It traces behind-the-scene activities leading to the uprising and identifies key players involved. The second volume, and perhaps the most exciting, on Awadh, covers the outbreak of the struggle, its development into a protracted war and its subsequent transformation into a series of guerrilla skirmishes. The third volume, with its focus on Bundelkhand and adjoining areas, focuses on figures like Maharani Laxmi Bai of Jhansi, Tatya Tope, Firoz Shah, Rao Saheb, and Martan Rao Tatya. The events unfolding in the eastern districts of UP form the core of the fourth volume, while the fifth focuses on the western districts, particularly the areas of Rohilkhand, Meerut, and Agra. The final volume provides a comprehensive chronological index of the names and places that will facilitate scholars and researchers as they navigate the sweep of people and events covered in these volumes. With rare original documents, detailed annotations, and painstaking translations of vernacular sources, this book is an invaluable sourcebook for research scholars, professional historians, teachers, and students of modern Indian history, particularly those concerned with the 1857 struggle. Vol. I: 1857-59: Nature and Origin; Vol. II: Awadh: 1857-59; Vol. III: Bundelkhand and Adjoining Territories: 1857-59; Vol. IV: Eastern and Adjoining Districts: 1857-59; Vol. V: Western Districts and Rohikhand: 1857-59; Vol. VI: Consolidated Index and Chronology. 036310

The studies included in this book are intended to open up new vistas of research into the history of the Middle Ages in India. They analyse the factors which were responsible for the ever changing alliances between the Muzaffarids of Gujarat, the Mamluks of Egypt, the Ottomans of Turkey and the Safavis of Persia in their confrontation with the Portuguese. They also examine the causes which led to the emergence of the mercantile class in Gujarat and assess the influence exercised by some of the business houses of the Mughal Court. Finally they explode some of the accepted theories in respect of Mughal India and throw revealing light on hitherto neglected archival heritage of our country.. Printed Pages: 194. 032773

25798 S.B. Misra (Author) & Sam Pitroda (Frwd)
Dream Chasing Dream, Hope, Betrayal, Grit, Sacrifice, Triumph.
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174368191; Softcover; New; 
In Deora, a remote village near Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh, Shiva Balak walked 24 kilometres to and back from his school each day, only to be left wondering why there were no schools in his own village. A brilliant student, he struggled through extreme hardships, and achieved laurels by winning a scholarship to fund his post-graduate degree in geology in Canada. 'This book chronicles the journey of an extraordinary Indian who has the courage to be ordinary. I went to his village and came away humbled. Dr Misra turned his back on what the affluent West had to offer him, and returned to his country to serve the people of rural India. His is an underdog story of a young scientist from an Indian village whose credit as a discoverer was snatched by his Western colleagues . who had to honour him decades later. This book is a must read for every Indian.' - Mahesh Bhatt, Filmmaker S.B. Misra became a star in the scientific community when he discovered 565-million-year-old fossils that were the oldest records of multicellular life on earth. However, he pondered over the long walk to school each day, which thousands of children were still making in his rural backyard. Abandoning a promising world of fame and recognition, he returned to India to realize his dream - a dream of education for young children in his village. This is an inspiring story of an ordinary Indian in rural India, where class barriers and gender discrimination still exist. This is a story of courage, determination, faith and the will to dream big and fulfill those dreams in the face of adversity. Printed Pages: 199. 108525
