26012 Rishad Saam Mehta
Hot Tea Across India
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789381626108; Softcover; New; 
Combining travel and tea, Hot Tea Across India documents interesting incidents on the writer’s journeys across India, from the Himalayan region to Delhi and Mumbai. The author mostly travels on his Bullet where he can, and where he cannot, he sends his bike on to destinations where he can use it. He talks about the incidents where he lost his vehicle, and he was even compelled to sell it at one point. He had to bribe policemen and railway clerks to ensure that he could keep possession of his precious bike and take it everywhere with him.A big part of the book is dedicated to his travel experiences while driving across the Himalayan region, including places like Ladakh and Kashmir, and also the ‘Dhabas’ and eateries along the way. He narrates his experiences in Raid-de-Himalayas, an annual off-road motor sport event. Hot Tea Across India has tongue-in-cheek descriptions of the travails of travel in India, like the one about the ‘Luxarey’ bus that he travelled in, from Haridwar to Manali. He recounts his various experiences on the way, including the time when he was apprehended as a terrorist to hitching a ride on a truck from Mumbai to Delhi.The linking factor in all these accounts is the author’s experience of drinking tea, wherever he went. Each place had its own unique tradition and specialties, and the author managed to locate a tea stall wherever he went, even in the remotest corner of the country.The book also contains a description of Mehta’s memorable dining experiences and the various places that he stayed in. He describes the varied cuisines he tasted across the country, and also provides tips on how to find the best places to dine in. Hot Tea Across India is anecdotal and filled with interesting incidents. Hilarious and witty, this travelogue attempts to offer an insightful read. 109569

A newspaper ad that fell into his hands by chance, an application for a job made on a whim, and Rishad embarked on the life he had always dreamt of: to travel, experience history, scare himself silly, climb a mountain, explore an underwater coral, jump out of a plane, have a good conversation over wine, make friends with an elephant, and photograph rainbows.

In this delightful travelogue, Rishad takes readers along with him on road trips in a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and Ferrari; a pilgrimage to Poland where The Great Escape was filmed; a spur-of-the moment New Year trip to see snow; and spectacular treks in the Himalayas.

26018 Rishikant Pandey
Speech Act and Linguistic Communication
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8180695131; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book critically analyses Austin speech act theory and comments on it raised by a number of distinguished philosophers. Initially, Austin argued for two sorts of utterances; the constative and the performative. Eventually, he shrugged off this distinction and advocated in favour of speech act theory, which is the theme of this book. Numerous other philosophers have conferred about the pros and cons of this doctrine. This book presents a position that in the perspectives of speaker intention, one may justify the distinction between the constative and the performative utterances. The author has argued that this discussion is trivial and he has raised a new issue of language, i.e. how performatives work in varied socio-cultural conditions. In addition, the relations of intention with language and behaviour are also examined and leading to a conclusion that behaviour is the more appropriate device to judge the real intention of the speaker. This book is expected to be adopted as a supplementary text for master level course on Analytical Philosophy and it would be advantageous for the scholars of linguistics, communication and of great interest to the general readers.

Handcrafted Indian Enamel Jewellery
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8174362479; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 9 x 9 Inches 
Beauty and glamour are the enduring qualities of jewellery. Kundan and enamelling are two outstanding forms of crafting jewellery. While kundan is used to decorate the front of an ornament, enamelling is used for decorating both sides. Enamelling not only enhances the value and beauty of jewellery, but also serves as a parameter to test the purity of precious metals. Introduced by Europeans, enamelling was widely used during the Mughal period. The best specimens of enamelled jewellery have been produced during this period. Surprisingly, little has been written about this art. Handcrafted Indian enamel jewellery examines the history and varied techniques of enamelling, and also discusses techniques that closely resemble enamelling, but are distinct from it. With time, the art of enamelling has deteriorated, yet the demand for quality work, found only in old pieces, may lend a new lease of life to this art form. Printed Pages: 144. 015180

The Burden of Refuge: Partition Experiences of the Sindhis of Gujarat
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8125036733; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Unlike most partition narratives, the narratives of the Sindhis is not marked by violence and bloodshed. The Hindus of Sindh came to India by ship, camel and train, and were unharmed most of the time. The Burden of Refuge is about Partition, and the resettlement and fragmentation of the Sindhi Hindus of India. Rita Kothari traces the trajectory of the Sindhi Hindus from Sindh to India, specifically to Gujarat. The Burden of Refuge tells the story of the Sindhi Hindus of Gajarat beginning with colonial Sindh and tracing the socio-political dynamics of the pre-Partition days. Through personal narratives, Kothari begins to life the story of various Sindhis as they migrate to India and begin their process of resettlement. She delineates the contexts that made an atypical commodity like the Sindhis re-modify themselves to suit more textbook notions of Gujarati bourgeois society. In their desire to assimilate with the India (especially Gujarat), the Sindhis gained much, but also suffered many losses. Though Sindhis have risen from the ashes of Partition as a model immigrant community, the Sufi syncreticism that informed their former life has been tragically damaged and they have also suffered the loss of their language. In Gujarat, their loss are accompanied with a desire to become ‘popular’ Hindus by adopting a more monolithic Hindu identity and by denying their ‘Sindhiness’. Using intergenerational voices and combining history with personal narratives, Kothari’s book examines the phenomena of psychological violence during and after Partition, and explores a different facet of Partition Studies. Going beyond Partition Studies, this book also makes an important contribution to the area of identity politics in contemporary India. This multidisciplinary study is relevant to everyone interested in India’s past and present. Printed Pages: 236. 028506

26028 Rita Kothari
Translating India
Foundation Books; New Delhi, India; 8175963050; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Post nineteen eighties, what made English translation from Indian languages a culturally desirable activity? This question leads Kothari to examine the changing cultural universe of urban, English-speaking middle class in India. She examines in detail readership patterns, attitudes to English, and the course of translation studies in general. The comfort with which English is used with an Indian language as in ""Yeh Dil Maange More"" or ""Hungry Kya"" reflects a sense of familiarity that has been made with English. From this broader context of bilingualism in the first part of the book, Kothari moves on to the state of Gujarat. Taking up the case of Gujarati, she demonstartes the micro issues involved in translations and politics of language. Kothari asks new questions in translation studies and makes the production, reception and marketability of English translation her chief concern. Translating India brings amultidisciplinary perspective to literature and translation, authenticity and representation. Contents Acknowledgements 1. Introduction 2.

26030 Rita Kothari (Author) & Urvashi Butalia (Frwd)
Memories and Movements: Borders and Communities in Banni, Kutch, Gujarat
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8125050493; Hardcover; New; New; 
Memories and Movements is an ethnographic account of present-day Banni society, where the rhetoric of ‘change and development’ have made inroads quietly but surely. Poised on the brink of socio-economic transformation, it hosts huge tourist populations for a few months every year. The result is an immense demand for its distinct products and services such as its handicrafts and music. The labour of its women feeds the embroidery industry in Banni. Kothari raises poignant questions, among others, about the position of Banni’s women: Do the handicraft industries give women more freedom and self-determination? Or do they entrench gender-inequality further? The author also tells the story of the entrepreneurial success and resultant social mobility of a hitherto ‘untouchable’ community. In presenting a picture of Banni’s complex, tiered society, she shows how its people navigate social borders on an everyday basis and transcend territorial borders through memory, song and story. In her insightful foreword to this volume, Urvashi Butalia highlights how Kothari’s ‘questioning of the very notions of region and nation’ is ‘remarkably free of jargon, and yet deeply informed by theory’.Printed Pages: 200. 101937

The No Nonsense Guide to Minority Rights in South Asia
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8178298910; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
The No Nonsense Guide to Minority Rights in South Asia is a practical primer on issues related to minority rights in South Asian countries. It delves into all major concepts and cutting edge theories that constitute the evolving minority rights discourse. The ‘minority’ in South Asia is typically characterized by ‘non-domination’ and powerlessness, two major markers apart from language, culture, religion and ethnicity. This book explores the process of this kind of ‘minoritization’ in the region, evaluating the weaknesses of constitutional and legal frameworks that contribute to it. In doing so, it examines in detail the State’s role in the socio-political recognition, protection and exclusion of minorities. By taking a rights-based approach, the book argues that nation-building in South Asia has been devoid of the commitment to expand the democracy and equality agenda and has instead been dominated by majoritarian and authoritarian policies. While elaborating on such politics of recognition and inequality, the author goes on to explore and analyze the ethnic composition of each South Asian country—India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Bhutan. She also highlights the role of minority agencies in resisting injustice and exclusion, thus providing a comparative and holistic understanding of the minority discourse in the region. This book is an important reference resource for students and academics working in the areas of politics and international relations, especially on human rights, minority rights and state-building. It will also be a useful guide for activists. Printed Pages: 328. 028572

Politics and the Right to Work: India’s National Rural Employment Guarantee Act
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789386296771; Hardcover; New; New; 
India’s National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA), passed in 2005, has been among the developing world’s most ambitious anti-poverty initiatives. By ‘guaranteeing’ 100 days of work annually to every rural household, NREGA has sought to advance the Indian constitution’s commitment to securing citizens’ ‘right to work’.Politics and the Right to Work offers a detailed analysis of the politics surrounding NREGA: the approach to political change that informed its design, the public advocacy and parliamentary tactics involved in its passage, the political dynamics shaping implementation at state and local levels, the institutional constraints on reforming how NREGA operates, and its complex impacts on the political capacities of poor people.Based on their extensive—primarily qualitative—field research, the authors examine how rights are being reconceived to promote pro-poor development and the challenges of making states more accountable to their most disadvantaged citizens. Their analysis of the politics of NREGA provides a window into the inner workings of Indian democracy and the complex character of the Indian state as it seeks to upgrade the country’s social welfare provision to match its growing economic strength.This book will be invaluable to scholars and students of political science, social policy, and the political economy of development.

Power, Policy, and Protest: The Politics of India’s Special Economic Zones
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 0198097344; Hardcover; New; New; 
India`s attempt to spur growth, boost exports, and create jobs by establishing Special Economic Zones remains a paradox. While the policy represents an intensification of the country`s increasingly market-oriented development paradigm, implementation has required active government involvement. But an industrialization strategy pioneered in authoritarian China has faced huge political resistance in democratic India. Protest movements arose in many localities where SEZs were proposed. A crucial point of contention has been the alienation of private and community-owned land by business interests, abetted by the state. To date, no systematic study of the politics of India`s SEZ experiment has been undertaken. This volume fills this gap, examining variations in protest movements within and between eleven states where SEZs were proposed. Detailed case studies investigate differences in the nature and extent of SEZ-related political mobilization and the means employed by governments to manage dissent. By covering a broad range of regional contexts, industrial sectors, and political conditions, this volume furnishes a comprehensive picture of the politics surrounding one of India`s most controversial reform measures.

Demonic Divine: Himalayan Art and Beyond
Serindia Publications; Chicago, USA; 2004; 1932476083; First Edition; Paperback; New; 8.75 x 11.5 Inches 
Demonic Divine: Himalayan Art and Beyond marks the Rubin Museum of Art's opening season as the first exhibition to focus on the "wrathful" image in Himalayan Art. Centuries after early missionaries first claimed these works and the artists who made them "demonic", the accompanying catalog takes an in-depth look at the role of "wrathful" deities in Himalayan art and in the world at large. Focusing on 66 works of art, the book investigates how the violence, grotesque features, and explicit postures of these "wrathful" figures portray protection and benevolence. With nearly two hundred color images highlighting both the visual power and artistic craftsmanship of the artwork, the margin between horror and beauty becomes slim. This extensive catalogue includes entries of all exhibited works along with comprehensive essays by the exhibition's curator, Rob Linrothe (Associate Professor of Art History at Skidmore College), Jeff Watt (Director of the Himalayan Art Website), and Marylin Rhie (Professor of Asian Art at Smith College.) Matthieu Ricard contributes the catalogue's foreword. Although drawing primarily from Himalayan work in RMA's permanent collection the catalog also includes non-Asian art on loan from major museums and private collections. The "demonic divine" is a fundamental paradox not limited by time or geography. Works included range from ca. 13th century Tibet through 20th century Mexico. This volume is an essential reference for libraries, art historians, connoisseurs, and any reader seeking horrific beauty - an illustration of the "Demonic Divine."

26056 Rob Nairn; Foreword By His Holiness the Seventeenth Karmapa
Living, Dreaming, Dying: Practical Wisdom from the Tibetan Book of the Dead
Shambhala; Boston, USA; 2004; 1590301323; First Edition; Paperback; New; 15.5 Cms x 23 Cms 
The Tibetan Book of the Dead is one of the best-known Tibetan Buddhist texts. It is also one of the most difficult texts for Westerners to understand. In Living, Dreaming, Dying, Rob Nairn presents the first interpretation of this classic text using a modern Western perspective, avoiding arcane religious terminology, keeping his explanations grounded in everyday language. Nairn explores the concepts used in this highly revered work and brings out their meaning and significance for our daily life. He shows readers how the Tibetan Book of the Dead can help us understand life and self as well as the dying process. Living, Dreaming, Dying helps readers to "live deliberately"—and confront death deliberately. One thing that prevents us from doing that, according to Nairn, is our tendency to react fearfully whenever change occurs. But if we confront our fear of change and the unknown, we can learn to flow gracefully with the unfolding circumstances of life rather than be at their mercy. Of course, change occurs throughout our life, but a period of transition also occurs as we pass from the waking state into sleep, and likewise as we pass into death. Therefore the author's teachings apply equally to living as well as to dreaming and dying. Through meditation instructions and practical exercises, the author explains how to: Explore the mind through the cultivation of deep meditation states and expanded consciousness Develop awareness of negative tendencies Use deep sleep states and lucid dreaming to increase self-understanding as well as to "train" oneself in how to die so that one is prepared for when the time comes Confront and liberate oneself from fear of death and the unknown Printed Pages: 302. 007397

The Psychology of Buddhist Tantra
Snow Lion Publications; Ithaca, New York, USA; 2006; 1559392630; First Edition; Paperback; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
This book masterfully clarifies the nature of tantric practice. In contrast to the approaches of conventional religion, tantra does not attempt to soothe the turmoil of existence with consoling promises of heaven and salvation. The tantric practitioner chooses to confront the bewildering and chaotic forces of fear, aggression, desire, and pride, and to work with them in such a way that they are channeled into creative expression, loving relationships, and wisely engaged forms of life. In order to make the processes of tantra psychologically intelligible for a contemporary reader, Rob Preece makes judicious use of the work of modern psychotherapy, forging a compelling link between a Western tradition that hearkens back to the alchemical traditions of our own past and the comparably alchemical strategies of Tibetan Buddhist tantric practices. In keeping with the pragmatic and therapeutic aims of both psychotherapy and Buddhist meditation, The Psychology of Buddhist Tantra never loses sight of the central importance of applying these ideas to the concrete realities of day-to-day life. By illuminating the richly symbolic language of tantra through the intermediate language of psychology, The Psychology of Buddhist Tantra points to the transformative nature of tantric practices.

Ageing and Development
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8125035265; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
That we all live longer is perhaps one of the greatest achievements of human progress. Yet increased life expectancy and lower fertility rates across the globe are having a huge impact on the structure of populations, offering both challenges and opportunities for the future. Ageing and Development is an authoritative analysis of the social and economic implications of this trend. Can we provide enough pensions for old people to live comfortably? How can old people be empowered to play a more positive role in society? What will the role of grandparents be in the emerging new social structures? What are the implications for health services? How can the very old be cared for? Providing a wealth of statistical and quantitative evidence and compiled by leading economists working at the forefront of this area, this book argues that these challenges are not insurmountable, but societies everywhere need to put in place the required policies to confront these challenges effectively. This is a timely and definitive guide to the impact of ageing populations. Printed Pages: 272. 031429

Excellence demands that you be better than yourself.Develop your own style. No one has had the life experiences you have had; no one has the contributions to make that you can make.Some people are outgoing, while others are introspective. Some are thinkers rather than doers. Some are leaders; some are followers. But whatever category you are in, right now you can make that single, deliberate decision to move towards a life of excellence and grow beyond yourself.Printed Pages: 192. 106715

"I am often asked what are the most impressive, informative and inspirational books I have ever read, and what books have I been reading this year? I answer both the questions in one word; 'Persons'.I watch people. I learn from them. I 'read' people's word and their work, their play and their prayer. I read their hurts and their hopes, their successes and their failures, their dreams and their disappointments, their sin and their salvation. I 'read' them as I listen to them while we sit and have fellowship; while they deliberate, debate or dictate. In doing so their life story is unfolded. In doing so I am reading the books that haven't been written yet.This is one such book. A book of dreamers and doers; of faith builders, the optimism generators, the 'let's-make-it-happen' people." — Robert H Schuller.Printed Pages: 192. 106721

The Handbook of Tibetan Buddhist Symbols
Shambhala; Boston, Massachusetts, USA; 2003; 1590301005; First Edition; Paperback; New; 18 Cms x 23 Cms Robert Beer 
The first comprehensive sourcebook of its kind, The Handbook of Tibetan Buddhist Symbols is a portal into the rich, multifaceted, and profound symbolism of Tibetan sacred art. Author Robert Beer presents a deep and encompassing insight into the vast array of symbols and attributes that appear within the complex iconography of Tibetan Buddhism. The succinct descriptions that accompany the detailed line drawings reveal the origins, meanings, and functions of these symbols, which are derived from India, Tibet, and China. Beer unravels the multiple layers of symbolism and meaning contained within the iconography, affording the reader a panoramic vision into the deeper dimensions of this sacred art. Drawn largely from Beer’s monumental work The Encyclopedia of Tibetan Symbols and Motifs, the meticulous brush drawings in this book were created over the course of nearly eight years.

The Entropy of Capitalism
Aakar Books; New Delhi, India; 9789350024409; Softcover; New; 
The project of applying general systems theory to social sciences is crucial in today's crisis when social and ecological systems clash. This book concretely demonstrates the necessity of a Marxist approach to this challenge, notably in asserting agency (struggle) as against determinism. It similarly shows how Marxism can be reinvigorated from a systems perspective. Drawing on his experience in both international systems and low-input agriculture, Biel explores the interaction of social and physical systems, using the conceptual tools of thermodynamics and information. He reveals the early twenty-first century as a period when capitalism starts parasitising on the chaos it itself creates, notably in the link between the two sides of imperialism: militarism (the 'war on terror') and speculative finance capital.
