The Ramayana of Valmiki: An Epic of Ancient India (Volume 5: Sundarakanda)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8120831667; Hardcover; New; New; 
The fifth and most popular book of the Ramayana of Valmiki the Sundarakanda recounts the adventures of the monkey hero Hanuman in leaping across the ocean to the island citadel of Lanka. Once there he scours the city for the abducted Princess Sita. The poet vividly describes the opulence of the court of the demon king Ravana the beauty of his harem, the splendors of the palace gardens and the hideous deformity of Sita`s wardresses. After witnessing Sita`s pathetic state and her stern rejection of Ravana`s blandishments, Hanuman reveals himself to the princess and restores her hope of rescue. The great monkey then wreaks havoc on the royal park and fights a series of hair raising battles with Ravana`s generals. Robert Goldman and Sally J. Sutherland Goldman are both professors in the department of south and southeast Asian Studies at the University of California Berkeley. Printed Pages: 601. 102101

25905 Rosalind R. Brooke
The Image of St Francis: Responses to Sainthood in the Thirteenth Century
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2006; 0521782910; First Edition; Hardcover; Brand New; Brand New; 228 x 152 Mm 
An important new study of the way in which St Francis's image was recorded in literature, documents, architecture and art. St Francis was a man whose personality was deliberately stamped on his Order and Rosalind Brooke explores how the stories told by Francis's companions were at once brilliantly vivid portrayals of the man as well as guides to how the Franciscan way of life ought to be led. She also examines how after St Francis's death a great monument was erected to him in the Basilica at Assisi and how this came to reflect in stone and stained glass and fresco the manner in which some Popes and leading friars believed his memory should be fostered. Highly illustrated throughout, including colour and black and white plates, this book will be essential reading for medievalists and art historians as well as anyone interested in St Francis and the Franciscan movement. • A fresh and penetrating study of a major figure and a major movement in medieval religious history • Examines St Francis’s image across literature, documents, architecture and painting • Interdisciplinary approach Contents 1.

An Introduction to Econophysics: Correlations and Complexity in Finance
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0521039878; First Edition; Paperback; New; 170 x 245 Mm 
This book concerns the use of concepts from statistical physics in the description of financial systems. The authors illustrate the scaling concepts used in probability theory, critical phenomena, and fully developed turbulent fluids. These concepts are then applied to financial time series. The authors also present a stochastic model that displays several of the statistical properties observed in empirical data. Statistical physics concepts such as stochastic dynamics, short- and long-range correlations, self-similarity and scaling permit an understanding of the global behaviour of economic systems without first having to work out a detailed microscopic description of the system. Physicists will find the application of statistical physics concepts to economic systems interesting. Economists and workers in the financial world will find useful the presentation of empirical analysis methods and well-formulated theoretical tools that might help describe systems composed of a huge number of interacting subsystems. • This book is on an important field of econophysics, which applies ideas from statistical physics to economics and finance • Gene Stanley is a distinguished and very well-known physicist and author • This work was highlighted in a page 1 article in the Wall Street Journal on November 6, 1998 Contents Preface; 1. Introduction; 2. Efficient market hypothesis; 3. Random walk; 4. Lévy stochastic processes and limit theorems; 5. Scales in financial data; 6. Stationarity and time correlation; 7.

The Vedas: An Introduction to Hinduism's Sacred Texts
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2014; 0143066382; Paperback; New; 
Legend puts them into four parts, and claims that they were sorted thus by Krishna Dveipayana Vyasa, an act so important to Hinduism that he was renamed Veda Vyasa for it. Passed on by oral recitation, there is no original record of the Vedas, but their origin itself is set as entirely in legend and religion as their content. Considered the holy tenets of Hinduism, they are divided into the Rig, Yajur, Sama and Atharva, four principal parts of the entire body of mantras which form the basis of the Hindu religion. This companion introduces readers to the history behind the myths and legends, and tries to put the Vedas in a strong historical root. Explaining the situation of the country during the time that they were probably composed, Roshen Dalal speaks with the voice of an expert in the subject and sorts centuries of information and speculation to answer questions which have been asked since time immemorial. Who wrote the Vedas? Why were they composed? Did they originate in India? She explains the possible lives people led to have brought out such a library of work, and stresses on the whole Indian nature of the body through socio-economic, archeological and linguistic research. An authoritative book, it will interest anyone desiring to know the background story of the cornerstone of Hindu faith. Printed Pages: 424. 037860

Lucknow: Then and Now
Marg Publications; Mumbai, India; 8185026610; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 23 Cms x 29 Cms Ravi Kapoor 
Although many people believe that Lucknow's finest period was during the time of the nawabs, its history did not begin in 1775 when the court of Awadh returned to Lucknow permanently, any more than it finished in 1856 when the last nawab Wajid Ali Shah travelled into exile and Lucknow presented the picture of a looted city. Pre-nawabi Lucknow was a flourishing city that lay mainly to the south of the Gomti with several Mughal structures along the river. Under the nawabs the city became synonymous with extravagance, the creative arts and patronage of artists, and extraordinary buildings. It went on to become a battleground between the East India Company and opponents of British rule. After 1858, the British reorganized Lucknow and some of the finest architects were commissioned to build here. The city became known for its fine educational institutions. Today, once again it is a city in transition, with a move away from the old city into the new suburbs.The last twenty years have seen an enormous amount of research and writing about the many-faceted city which has something for everyone - the historian, the artist, the photographer, the social anthropologist. The present volume focuses on less well-known aspects of Lucknow life and history - the present-day attraction of this city in transition, the bazaars with delectable foods to tempt the palate, the craftspeople who even today create delicate works of art; the architecture, from imambaras and karbalas to Victorian, Edwardian, and modernist structures, and educational institutions including the legacy of Claude Martin; and the charm of 18 and 19 century Faizabad and Lucknow preserved in paintings and photographs. Thus, in three sections - the living city, secular and religious institutions, and the visual arts - the chapters present a lively range of subjects, some of which will be enlightening even for those who live in Lucknow.

Bombay Before Bollywood: Film City Fantasies
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 812505362X; Hardcover; New; New; 
Bombay Before Bollywood offers a fresh, alternative look at the history of Bombay cinema. Eschewing the conventional focus on India’s social and mythological films, it foregrounds the subaltern genres of the ‘magic and fighting films’—the fantasy, costume and stunt films popular in the B- and C-circuits in the decades before and immediately after independence. It explores the influence of this other cinema on the big-budget masala films of the 1970s and 1980s, before ‘Bollywood’ erupted onto the world stage in the mid-1990s. The book reminds us that a significant stream of Bombay cinema has always revelled in cultural hybridity, borrowing voraciously from global popular culture and engaging with transcultural flows of cosmopolitan modernity and postmodernity. This volume will be a welcome addition to the fields of film studies and cultural studies. It will also be of interest to the general reader.Printed Pages: 344. 101850

Freedom and Beef Steaks: Colonial Calcutta Culture
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125047646; Hardcover; New; New; 
Freedom and Beef Steaks explores path-breaking debates to do with the literary, with identity, and with cultural authenticity in nineteenth-century Calcutta--- debates arising from the flux of creative and critical work in that period. The seven essays collected in this book range across a diverse field of interests that have been, so far, under-researched. Crucial to our understanding of the making of modern Indian culture in a particular location, these are issues that uncover the complexity of the postcolonial field and further extend its scope. A humorous poem written by Henry Meredith Parker (1796–1868) about the newly educated youth of Calcutta is used to frame debates for and against meat-eating as the issue played itself out against the backdrop of a developing Indian nationalism. A closer look at the political poetry written by a radical iconoclast such as Derozio reveals the communal stereotyping of the ‘Muslim’ as Other—representations in keeping with British historiographical orthodoxies of the time. Scrutinising early letters written to the Calcutta Journal in 1819 about the community’s thoughts on naming and defining itself, Rosinka Chaudhuri also deals with the early history of the Anglo-Indians.Printed Pages: 228. 101863

Boundaries of Religion: Essays on Christianity, Ethnic Conflict, and Violence
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2013; 0198090404; Hardcover; New; New; 
Religion is deeply intertwined with modern Indian society and polity. Boundaries of Religion is a collection of essays that brings together critical writings by Rowena Robinson spanning the past two decades that map the course of community interactions and ethnic and religious conflict in India. The author looks at Hindu-Muslim ethnic violence; the ideology of Hindutva; the survival strategies of victims of violence under the shadow of majority-minority politics; popular Christianity and the varying forms of intercultural engagement emerging out of conversion; the sharing of traditions across boundaries; and the battles over religion, conversion, and secularism in contemporary India. Focusing on the study of non-Hindu communities, this book, at first, looks at Christians, and their field of interaction with Hindus, bringing to the fore the various manifestations of religion in ritual and practice specifically, and, on a larger scale, its relation to politics and the state. It goes on to analyze the ways in which periodic violence reshapes the Muslims` understanding of themselves and their relations to other communities and the state. The memory of violence imprints itself on the awareness of time, the use of space, dress codes, and the mobility of both men and women. Analysis is made of how violence disfigures relations of kin and family, distorts social and economic trajectories of individuals and households, and deforms the everyday. The book brings out the gendered consequences of ethnic violence and strategies of survival. Printed Pages: 328. 110230

Marketing Champions: Practical Strategies for Improving Marketing's Power, Influence and Business Impact
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2011; 812652958X; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Marketing Champions explains to marketing professionals how to make the marketing department an influential, powerful, and critical part of any organization. Because many CEOs don't currently perceive their marketing departments as delivering sufficient value, the author posits that it is up to marketers to prove them wrong and seize organizational significance. He outlines the three key dimensions of value required to effectively manage marketing as an asset of any organization, and leads the reader through the steps necessary to achieve them -- first, how marketers must prove that they manage demand so as to create and harvest cash flow; second, how they must demonstrate profitability, showing a clear link between marketing activities and financial returns to the firm; and third, how they must establish repeatable, transparent processes to show the line of reasoning behind their proposals and decisions.Printed Pages: 288. 104741

In the Shadow of the Taj: A Portrait of Agra
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2007; 014302656; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Agra has more than mere mention in the Hindu scriptures. And the city’s position of strategic importance astride important trade routes historically attracted empire-builders ranging from the Lodhis and the Mughals to the British. Now, says Royina Grewal, Agra has fallen prey to a lassitude that has caused large swathes of the once magnificent capital of emperors Akbar, Jahangir and Shah Jahan to succumb to decay and haphazard development. Delving into myth and history, drawing deep conclusions from her lengthy conversations with varied citizens of multi-cultural Agra, Grewal weaves grand strands from the past with the humbler textures of present-day Agra to explain why the home of the world’s best-known monument has been allowed to disintegrate, and why the once mighty Yamuna is merely a stream of sludge. But there is hope, says Grewal. Drawing inspiration from the many enlightened individuals she met on her peregrinations in and around Agra, she points to ways in which the city can be saved. In the Shadow of the Taj may be a map of the city’s history, but it can also be a drawing board that offers insights for a sustainable future. Printed Pages: 280. 021130

Saris: Tradition and Beyond
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8174363742; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 31 x 31 Cm 
The sari is the most representative apparel of India that has intrigued men and tempted women all over the world. Worn in a variety of ways, the sari is a fabric-length of varying densities in its body, borders and end pieces often woven by combining a range of cottons and silks in colours and patterns that are constantly evolving. This book is an exhaustive overview of this fascinating unstitched garment and a cutting-edge documentation of design and all that supports it socially, culturally and economically. Travelling district by district, village by village, the book explores an entire spectrum of traditional weaver and printer settlements in fourteen sari-producing states of India. Thus emerges the first comprehensive compilation of the whole range and scale of the sari: the structures, designs, colours, the format and technology that make up the lingua of the sari; the inspiration, living experience and sensibilities of the weaving and printing communities; their economic viability and market system; and their predicament in an age of transition. For the first time, this book offers a step-by-step guide for atleast 108 ways of draping the sari, through a series of line drawings and colour photographs, after revealing the rationale of the varying lengths and widths of the sari in the distinctive wearing styles of every region. Produced after twenty years of research, Saris illustrates the vibrancy and splendour of this age-old garment through extensive documentation and stunning photographs. A vivid account of how saris come into being for the lay reader and the specialist – be they textilists, designers, scholars or developers who will find this book equally engaging.

Domesticity and Power in the Early Mughal World
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 0521145546; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
In a fascinating and innovative study, Ruby Lal explores domestic life and the place of women in the Mughal court of the sixteenth century. Challenging traditional, orientalist interpretations of the haram that have portrayed a domestic world of seclusion and sexual exploitation, the author reveals a complex society where noble men and women negotiated their everyday life and public-political affairs in the 'inner' chambers as well as the 'outer' courts. Using Ottoman and Safavid histories as a counterpoint, she demonstrates the richness, ambiguity and particularity of the Mughal haram, which was pivotal in the transition to institutionalisation and imperial excellence. Contents 1. Introduction 2. A genealogy of the Mughal haram 3. The question of the archive: the challenge of a princess's memoir 4. The making of Mughal court society 5. Where was the haram in a peripatetic world? 6. Settled, sacred, and all-powerful: the new regime under Akbar 7. Settled, sacred, and 'incarcerated': the imperial haram 8. Conclusion.

Coming of Age in Nineteenth-Century India: The Girl-Child and the Art of Playfulness
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 1107045916; Hardcover; New; New; 
In this engaging and eloquent history Ruby Lal traces the becoming of nineteenth-century Indian women through a critique of narratives of linear transition from girlhood to womanhood. In the north Indian patriarchal environment women's lives were dominated by the expectations of the male universal articulated most clearly in household chores and domestic duties. The author argues that girls and women in the early nineteenth century experienced freedoms eroticism adventurousness and playfulness even within restrictive circumstances. Although women in the colonial world of the later nineteenth century remained agential figures their activities came to be constrained by more firmly entrenched domestic norms. Lal skillfully marks the subtle and complex alterations in the multifaceted female subject in a variety of nineteenth-century discourses elaborated in four different sites - forest school household and rooftops.Printed Pages: 247 with 4 b/w illustrations with 2 maps. 101432

Nehru and Bose: Parallel Lives
Penguin Books India Pvt. Ltd.; Delhi, India; 2014; 0670087238; Hardcover; New; New; 
‘Nobody has done more harm to me ... than Jawaharlal Nehru,’ wrote Subhas Chandra Bose in 1939. Had relations between the two great nationalist leaders soured to the extent that Bose had begun to view Nehru as his enemy? But then, why did he name one of the regiments of the Indian National Army after Jawaharlal? And what prompted Nehru to weep when he heard of Bose’s untimely death in 1945, and to recount soon after, ‘I used to treat him as my younger brother’? Rudrangshu Mukherjee’s fascinating book tracks the growth of these two towering figures against the backdrop of the independence movement, delicately tracing the contours of a friendship that did not quite blossom as political ideologies diverged, and delineates the shadow that fell between them—for, Gandhi saw Nehru as his chosen heir and Bose as a prodigal son. Nehru and Bose: Parallel Lives brings to light the riveting story of two contrasting personalities who would go on to define modern India.Printed Pages: 288. 103397

The Penguin Gandhi Reader
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 1993; First Edition; Paperback; Good; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869-1948) was born in Porbander on the western coast of India. His childhood and early upbringing were undistinguished but as an adult he initiated and was involved in a series of novel forms of peaceful protests which established him as one of the most important leaders of the twentieth century and one whose message and relevance transcended national boundaries. This meticulously edited volume culled from the Collected Works of Gandhi contains a representative selection of his writings focusing on themes which were central to Gandhi’s philosophy. The reader is divided into eight sections and discusses the following in detail: Gandhiji’s complete rejection of what is known as modern civilization together with its materialistic nature; the doctrines of swaraj and swadeshi, which meant more to him than mere independence for the British; the creed of non-violence, the centrepiece of his political theory; his role in mass movements particularly in the Non-Co-operation Civil Disobedience and Quit India movements; his views on women and sex; his arguments against caste and untouchability; his thoughts on capitalism and socialism; his commitment to a united India; his firm belief in religious tolerance and finally, his lifelong struggle towards the attainment of both Home Rule and Self Rule.

Srikantha’s Philosophy of the Monotheistic Vedanta
Global Vision Publishing House; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8182200555; Hardcover; New; New; 
Srikantha is the most celebrated of all the Saiva Vedantists and his Brahma-Sutra-Bhasya is taken to be the most authoritative Vedanta-Bhasya of the Saivas. He has very ably explained the Vedanta philosophy from the standpoint of Saivaism. Srikantha propounds his central philosophy that Brahman is Siva. Siva is taken to be the sole Creator, Sustainer and Destroyer of the Universe, as well as the sole Cause of Salvation. In his Commentary, he identifies ?Brahman? with ?Siva,? attributing to the latter all the usual qualities and activities of a Monotheistic God. Printed Pages: 429. 110075

25996 Rumer Godden
Rungli-Rungliot (Thus Far and No Further)
Speaking Tiger Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789385288395; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
In the 1940s, as the Second World War raged elsewhere, author Rumer Godden lived for a year in Rungli-Rungliot—an isolated tea estate three thousand feet down the mountain from Darjeeling—with her two daughters, their nanny Giovanna, and four Pekinese. Rungli-Rungliot, which means ‘Thus Far and No Further’, is a memory of the time Godden spent there.In this journal, Godden records her days in spare, unadorned words: the endless, driving rain of monsoon and the impossibility of staying dry; seeing her daughters anew, and finding that she has perhaps never seen them at all; sowing an autumn garden that refuses to heed direction; the extreme solitude, which strips the material world away and lets the spirit soar; an almost aborted Christmas; and the eternal snows of the Kanchenjunga and Pandim peaks, which look on at everything in serenity.Lyrical, and suffused with gentle melancholy, Rungli-Rungliot evokes a precise sense of place. This book is perfect for lovers of the mountains and the quiet, meditative life.Printed Pages: 176. 103372

25999 Rupa Bajwa
The Sari Shop
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0143031589; First Indian Edition; Paperback; New; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
A gem of a novel about the stuff life's made of It is another working day in Amritsar, and Ramchand is late again. He runs through the narrow streets to Sevak Sari House, buried in the heart of one of the city's main bazaars. There, amongst the Bangladesh cottons and Benaras silks, Ramchand and his fellow shop assistants sit all day, patiently rolling and unrolling yards of coloured fabric. Then, one afternoon, Ramchand is sent to a new part of the city with a bundle of saris carefully selected for a trousseau. His trip to Kapoor House jolts him out of the rhythm of his daily routine and his glimpse into this different world charges him with an urgent sense of possibility. And so, armed with a second-hand English grammar book and a battered Oxford Dictionary, a fresh pair of socks and a bar of Lifebuoy soap, Ramchand attempts to realize the dream that his childhood had promised. But soon these efforts turn his life upside down, bringing him face to face with the cruel reality of his very existence. The Sari Shop heralds the arrival of a writer who combines a profound sensitivity with humour and unflinching honesty. Rupa Bajwa's story is both heartbreaking and very real, and depicts a modern world in which hope and violence are permanently entwined. Printed Pages: 256. 002721

26000 Rupa Gulab
Girl Alone
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0143033387; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
Cough-syrup junkie, emotionally insecure intellectual snob (she’s an English literature graduate from Calcutta University), faithful advocate of the ‘Why me?’ brigade, Arti believes that rock bands help her get centred better than shrinks. And that large doses of D.H. Lawrence and Woody Allen dilute the emotional neediness coursing through her veins. In Bombay now, on her domineering mother’s orders to get a job or else marry a loser hand-picked from the matrimonial columns, Arti’s one objective (apart from bombing her Super-Bitch Boss’s office) is to keep alive her unrelenting search for the man with whom she can live happily ever after. But Arti has the unique talent of always falling for the wrong men. And as she stumbles from one disastrous relationship to the next, she realizes the potency of that all-important, universal truth: men only want you when you don’t want them any more . . . An irresistible blend of satiric wit, romance (not of the mushy kind) and saucy tips on surviving single in the city, Girl Alone is a rollicking read from start to finish. Printed Pages: 216. 010415
