26401 Rai Govind Chandra
Indo-Greek Jewellery
Abhinav Publications/Kaveri Books; New Delhi, India; 8170170885; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In this monograph the writer has tried to show how the Greek jewellery motifs were imported into India, which have been discovered in the jewellery found in Taxila and other border towns where Alexander had allowed his soldiers to settle down. Among these soldiers were goldsmiths who just manufactured jewellery on Greek patterns but later influenced by Indian motifs began to mix these with Greek ones. This Indo-Greek jewellery found a ready market among the Indo-Greeks who inhabited these towns. The writer has dealt with the jewellery found under different chapters entitled the jewellery for the head, ears, neck, arms, wrist etc. This analytical thesis is of interest of all Indologists and is specially useful for scholars studying Indian jewellery and ornaments of the first century A.D.

Inarilappisches Wörterbuch IV
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 1991; 951940340X; New; 
Akateemikko Erkki Itkosen inarinsaamen kielen sanakirja on Suomalais-Ugrilaisen Seuran suuria sanakirjahankkeita. Suurteos muodostuu neljästä osasta ja sisältää kaiken kaikkiaan 1 550 sivua. Sanakirja perustuu lähes sadan vuoden mittaiseen keruutyöhön: vanhimmat tiedot kokosi A. V. Koskimies Inarissa 1886. Aineiston systeemaattisen täydennystyön aloitti Erkki Itkonen 1950-luvulla ja sanakirjan toimitustyö alkoi Suomen Akatemian rahoituksella 1963. Julkaisutukea kirjalle on saatu opetusministeriöltä. nInarinsaame kuuluu maailman harvinaisiin kieliin; sitä puhutaan ainoastaan Suomessa. Inarinsaamelaiset, lukumäärältään nykyisin noin 400, ovat Inarin kunnan alkuperäisasukkaita. Vasta 1700-luvun puolivälissä heidän kotiseudulleen alkoi levittäytyä suomalaisia ja 1800-luvun puolivälistä myös pohjoissaamelaisia. 1940-luvulla kuntaan asutettiin rajan taakse maansa menettänyt kolttakansa. Nykyisin inarinsaame on omalla alueellaankin vähemmistökieli, jonka elinmahdollisuuksien turvaaminen on valtion toimenpiteiden varassa. Printed Pages: 217. 116400

J.V. Snellman: Valtioviisas Vaikuttaja
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2006; 9517466781; New; 
J. V. Snellman loi pohjan suomalaisuudelle, jonka perustana on omakielinen kirjallisuus ja sivistys. Snellman oli lannistumaton lehtimies: kansankiihottajan mielipiteet sysäsivät vauhtiin sekä aatteellisen suomalaisuusliikkeen että sen konkreettiset seuraukset eli kasvatuksen, koulutuksen, yliopistopolitiikan, kulttuurin ja talouselämän uudistukset. Tämä teos kuvaa mukaansatempaavasti Snellmanin työuraa, teoksia sekä yksityiselämää. Printed Pages: 138. 115752

Tieteen rannalla: Pohdiskeluja tieteen arvosta ja merkityksestä
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2005; 9525329402; New; 
Tieteellä ja erityisesti luonnontieteillä on meille valtava merkitys sekä materiaalisten olosuhteiden että maailmankuvan muuttajana. Jatkuvaa keskustelua käydään kuitenkin siitä, miltä osin vaikutus on ollut kielteistä ja miltä osin myönteistä. Kirjassa Raimo Lehti esittää puheenvuoronsa matemaattis-fysikaalisten tieteiden, erityisesti tähtitieteen näkökulmasta. Lehden mielestä paras keino vastata pessimistisiin kysymyksiin on kertoa tieteestä, sen metodeista ja vaikeuksista sekä myös aikaansaannoksista. Printed Pages: 235. 114375

26415 Raimond Gaita
The Philosopher`s Dog
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174362789; Hardcover; New; New; 
In this lyrical and beautifully written book, Raimond Gaita tells inspirational, poignant, sometimes funny but never sentimental stories of the dogs, cats and cockatoos that lived and died within his own family. He asks fascinating questions about animals: Is it wrong to attribute the concepts of love, devotion, loyalty, grief or friendship to them? Why do we care so much for some creatures but not for others? Why are we so concerned to prove that animals have minds? Reflecting on these questions, Raimond Gaita pleads that we seriously ask ourselves what it means to be creatures of 'flesh and blood'. He discusses mortality and sexuality, the relations between story telling, philosophy and science, our attitudes to insects and, from his own experiences, the spiritual love of mountains. Drawing acutely on philosophers such as Rene Descartes, Ludwig Wittgenstein and Simone Weil; and writers such as Isak Dinesen, George Orwell and J.M. Coetzee, The Philosopher's Dog is above all a book about our creatureliness and its place in the understanding of our humanity. An arresting book by a profoundly original thinker, The Philosopher's Dog is a triumph of both story telling and philosophy. Printed Pages: 213. 108575

This anthology collects the most crucial texts of the Indian Sacred Scriptures ñ in all more than 500ñnewly translated into contemporary English.

Excerpts are taken from the oldest hymns, such as the Rig Veda; from the Brahmanas, the Aranyakas, or ëForest Treatises,í and finally the Upanishads, which represent the mystical and philosophical culmination of the Vedas. This is a book for meditation, for reading, public and private, as well as for thorough study at this wellspring of human wisdom. It should, moreover, facilitate that meeting of East and West so long desired and delayed, and now so imperative. Printed Pages: 974. 110017

26422 Rainer Maria Rilke
Letters To A Young Poet: A Beloved Classic of Writerly Wisdom
Yogi Impressions Books Pvt. Ltd.; Mumbai, India; 2015; 8188479977; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
The ten letters that form this beautiful little book are some of the most famous letters ever written. They range freely over a variety of subjects, from the dangers of an ironic worldview to the value of faith. The reason they have proved to be so popular over the years is that they are the work of a great soul; an expansive and inspiring spirit pervades them.For almost a hundred years, the voice that reached out to the aspiring artist with the most clarity and consolation was that of Rainer Maria Rilke. How is it that such a slim book, written so long ago in a time very different from our own, still speaks to us with such authority today? The answer lies in the simple fact that these letters are the result of a unique conjunction of circumstances that created an almost magical alchemy of thought and feeling.Because of their depth of sentiment and sense of wise detachment, readers often assume that they are the work of an older man looking back on the struggles of youth. But, in fact, these letters were written between Rilke’s twenty-eighth and thirty-third years – during which he was struggling to find himself artistically. However, it is the great, overarching shadow of the French sculptor Rodin that helps lift Rilke’s insights from the profound observations of a sensitive and talented young man to the status of timeless utterances about the mysteries of life and the creative process.Printed Pages: 128. 103506

God's Own Death
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789351042433; Softcover; New; 
The author's articulation of the episodes of H.H. the sixteenth Karmapa in this book exudes the subtle aspects of compassion, serenity and fearlessness so naturally displayed by H.H. in his life even when challenged by severe terminal illness. At the same time, the author being a scientist himself, the readers of this book are fortunate not to miss the details of the book which would have perhaps sneaked out had the author been inclined towards piety. This book also paves the way to the scientists and the lay audience alike not to close the door to ponder upon the possibilities of the existence of various dimensions of reality unknown to the world of science at this moment. Paradigm-shift from the current belief of the ontological reality can happen to the present science anytime as happened at the time of the emergence of Theory of Relativity and Quantum Theory. This is a rare account of the last few weeks of the Karmapa's life. It is a true story by an Indian military doctor who attended on the 16th Karmapa during his treatment in hospitals around the world until his death on 5th November 1981 at the American International Cancer Hospital, in Chicago, U.S.A. Forty-five days before the Karmapa's death, in broad daylight, the doctor had seen the Karmapaís cremation while sitting in the latter's room in Queen Mary Hospital, Hong Kong. On 20th December 1981, at the Karmapa's cremation, the doctor remembers having seen the same scene three months earlier and receiving a message from the Karmapa.Printed Pages: 274. 102362

Dalit Personal Narratives: Reading Caste, Nation and Identity
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8125042504; Softcover; New; 
Autobiography as a literary genre is diverse and complex–and Dalit Personal Narratives is an attempt to understand its multiple meanings expressed and mediated through different identities such as caste, class, ethnicity, religion, language and gender. Raj Kumar's pioneering book primarily examines Dalit autobiographies. It is a historic breakthrough because till recently, Dalits in India were voiceless. These narratives thus symbolise how Dalits are breaking down the age-old barrier of silence. Focusing on multiple marginalities pertaining to caste, nation and identity, the author has followed an inter-disciplinary approach across disciplines such as history, sociology, law, religion, philosophy and gender studies apart from English literature, to bring to the reader the remarkably different personal narratives of both Dalit men and women. The autobiographies are located against a socio-cultural background, along with the emergence of Dalit literature, Dalit life-narratives, while revealing their everyday caste and class exploitations that call for the restoration of dignity and self-respect. In itself, the very emergence of Dalit autobiography is an act of resistance because Dalits are using this opportunity to assert their identities through their writings. Through the autobiographies, one gets a glimpse into the life of a community struggling against deprivation, discrimination and exploitation at the hands of a society ridden with caste biases and unequal opportunities. It also traces the origin of autobiographical writing in the West and follows its development both thematically and structurally by analysing the autobiographies of Saint Augustine, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Benjamin Franklin and J. S. Mill. Also discussed are autobiographies of upper caste Indian public personalities, including M. K. Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru. The personal narratives of upper caste Indian women, however—like Rassundari Devi, Binodini Dasi and others—reveal their under-privileged status in a patriarchal system. Raj Kumar is an Associate Professor in the Department of English, Delhi University. His research areas include autobiographical studies, Dalit literature, Indian writing in English, Oriya literature and post-colonial studies. He has been a Fellow at the Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Shimla in 1999 and has published in journals such as Social Action, Sateertha Bulletin, The Fourth World, Creative Forum and Language Forum. Raj Kumar has also translated literary texts from Indian languages, especially from Oriya into English.Printed Pages: 308. 101778

Annie Besant`s Rise to Power in Indian Politics 1914-1917
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1981; 8170221579; Hardcover; New; New; 
After 1914 the political situation in India changed from that of mere petition and protest to a more vigorous plan of action. Indian aspirations were crystallised into a definite scheme of self of self-government. This study attempts to analyse the nature and character of Annie Besants political leadership during this crucial period of Indian history. This work is as much a contribution to intellectual history as to the political history of the times and the significance of Annie Besants ideas in Indian politics has been studied in the context of the social, economic and cultural backgrounds. In this exploratory quest of understanding her political behaviour the tools of analysis such as social, economic and psychological motivations have been used to unravel the complexities of her role and the political situation in India during 1914-1917. Students of modern Indian history and political science should find this extremely useful both because of the focus of the study and its interpretation. Printed Pages: 182. 112157

Kuchipudi, from Andhra Pradesh, was originally a dance-drama form. This is the first attempt to demystify the nuances of a form that has always been the preserve of the males. The dramatic content of the form was passed from one generation to the other without any written script. It was only in the last century that pure dance sequences have been culled out to evolve a style that is distinct from the form of the same generic name.

26458 Raja Rajendrelal Mitra
The Chandogya-Upanisad
Bharatiya Kala Prakashan; Delhi, India; 2001; 8186050809; Hardcover; New; New; 
The knowledge of Brahman is called Upanisad, because it completely annihilates the world, together with its cause (ignorance) with regard to such as possess this knowledge, for this is the meaning of the word sat (`to destroy`, `to go`) preceded by Upani (upa, `near`, ni `certainty`). A work which treats of the same knowledge is also called Upanisad. The Chandogya Brahmana of the Sama Veda, whereof this Upanisad forms a part, contains ten chapters (prapathakas); of these the first two are called the Chandogya Mantra Brahmana, the rest constitute the Chandogya-Upanisad. Many students of Indian philosophy enamoured of the idea of moksa taught by it seek to achieve it by various processes, physical or mental, generally, known as Yoga. Those who do so without being fully saturated with the spirit and substance of the Upanisads merely take a leap in the dark and court certain death, spiritual as well as physical. The first requisite is proper familarity with the first principles of Advaita philosophy (Sravana) ; and entire love with them (Manana). Then follows that sublime state wherein the sense of separateness is being slowly forgotton. But even here nothing but strict practice of the noble virtues and perfect altruism will be necessarily required of the student. CONTENTS: Preface; 1. Sankara`s Introduction 2. First Chapter 3.

Agricultural Development
Abhinav Publications/Kaveri Books; New Delhi, India; 8170172993; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
"The present book offers a comprehensive and coherent account with evaluation of the impact of irrigation on agricultural growth in Sharda Sahayak Command Area. Here, the main thrust is on irrigation as a key factor for agricultural development of the area, which ultimately leads to increase in yield per unit land. Inefficient management of irrigation system emanating from lack of coordination, failure of irrigation department in the provision of proper distribution system, drainage facilities and appropriate steps for reduction of seepage losses, was realized by the Government during the Third Plan period. Consequently, a planned programme of area development through a unified multi-disciplinary organization was thought of. This concept of area development necessitated the creation of Command Area Development Projects in the country. Sharda Sahayak Command Area Development Project was established in 1973-74. The main objectives of the study were set to examine the definite and positive impact of the project, to boost agricultural production and to suggest effective remedial measures. To achieve these objectives, the study aims particularly at making an assessment of the following core functions of the project: (a) integrated water management, (b) farm development works, and (c) agricultural inputs and extension services. 107968

The Greying of India: Population Ageing in the Context of Asia
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0761998020; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book argues cogently that India’s policymakers need to urgently take up the cause of the elderly in order to create an environment that insures them against various risks and allows them to maintain as much economic independence and self-sufficiency as possible without disturbing the intergenerational balance. The first of its kind to be based on data from the National Sample Survey Organisation and providing a global perspective, this book constitutes the most comprehensive analysis of the causes and consequences of ageing in India. The major objectives of the book are to: - Document the rapid growth of older populations in India. - Address the key issues and topics related to ageing. - Assess the implications of demographic changes for programmes and policies for the aged. - Present an Elderly Status Index based on available data. Timely, stimulating and challenging, this book is packed with relevant and hitherto unanalysed data on ageing in India. In particular, it provides an exhaustive discussion on various conceptual and measurement issues relating to population ageing. Printed Pages: 472. 028698

Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 019946085X; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
India’s maritime contact with eastern Mediterranean and classical Rome (c. 1st century BCE–3rd century CE) has often been celebrated as ‘Indo-Roman trade’—a prominent theme in Indian historiography. Rajan Gurukkal critically rethinks this exchange relation—he argues that the expression ‘Indo-Roman trade’, when examined in the light of extant source material and theoretical insights, is a misnomer. Exchange of goods between the Mediterranean and the contemporaneous eastern world was a combination of multiple forms of exchanges in which trade was just one of many and was confined to Rome. Managing this ensemble was a highly collaborative, extensively networked, and document-based enterprise. It necessitated a stratified society, state system, and the entailing political economy of demand for luxury goods. Considering that such institutional and social structures were absent in contemporaneous peninsular India, this book dismisses the claims in south Indian historiography that early Tamil chieftains conducted overseas commerce. Neither there existed adequate naval technology to allow merchant bodies to conduct independent overseas trade nor was it necessary. Printed Pages: 330. 107464

Hotel Calcutta
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 9789381523735; Softcover; New; 
The century-old Hotel Calcutta run by an Englishman, is under threat from land sharks who want to raze the building and build a shopping mall. As the staff stare at uncertain times, a monk turns up at the Calcutta hotel and prophesies that the hotel will still stand if a wall of stories can be built. Peter Dutta – the manager – though a little unsure, is ready to give it a shot and begins looking for a storyteller. A painter, who has just stepped into the bar, volunteers to tell the first story. Next it is Peter’s turn.From day to day, as the storytelling fever catches on, new guests arrive, among them a shifty-eyed producer of porn flicks, an American woman who hears the footsteps of a dead soldier in the corridor and finally an odd pair who pretend to be war historians but may be detectives. Soon it seems they have all arrived there with a purpose. Will their stories protect the hotel or will Hotel Calcutta crumble under the sledgehammers of the land sharks?Between techno-angst, deathless love, surreal adventure and an epidemic of thievery, this is a novel that taps into the power of stories to light up our age of trenchant uncertainties and powerful illusions.Printed Pages: 224. 106547

Quest for Space: The Indian Connect
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789383649020; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Human endeavours in space over the past six decades have reached a stage that just about every facet of human life today has some complement of space capability contributing to it, encompassing the entire spectrum from telecommunications, navigation, weather forecasting, remote sensing, broadcasting and disaster management. Space exploration actually owes its origins to matters military, with civil applications coming about as a by-product. Capability building in space thereafter has witnessed frenzied progress, in the spheres of both the military and the civil/commercial.With an ever increasing number of countries joining the space bandwagon, space is getting congested and competitive. International legislation on space, though well meaning, is largely viewed to be inadequate to address the concerns of equitable access to space and more alarmingly, is reticent on the issue of militarisation and weaponisation. The Indian presence in the global space order is rather significant. Ranking sixth globally in terms of space budget and technological ca pability, India is capable of going beyond its calling. Its multi-dimensional space programme spans almost the entire spectrum from space launch to satellite construction and their employment in a large array of development-centric applications, and in recent years, in missions beyond the Earth. The Mangalyaan mission to Mars currently underway symbolises India’s indigenous technological prowess and is a harbinger of its capability of cementing its status as a responsible space player at the global level.Printed Pages: 296. 104271

26490 Rajee Seth and Raji Narasimhan (trs.)
Not Without Reason and Other Stories
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125045120; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
A warm humanism marks this collection of stories by Rajee Seth, some of which are vibrantly feminist. Woman suffers, and man too, and Seth tries to dissect the reasons why. A clinical detachment is tempered by empathy and understanding. The protagonist in ‘Amma’s Gold’, who lost in an earlier war, and wants to sell her ornaments to donate to the National Defence Fund during the Kargil battle, cannot be deterred by her grasping other son. Partition forms the background of ‘Wait, Intezaar Hussein’: on Independence Day, a man, while reading a book about the watershed in history, assailed by the memory of his beloved who perished in the Lahore riots forty years ago. In ‘Yatra’, an old man getting reconciled to his son after long servitude at his master’s mansion discovers that being fettered is demeaning to the human spirit. The title story is about childlessness where the man, himself the cause, stigmatises his wife, who gets wind of her mother-in-law’s plans to seek another bride and decides to leave. ‘Morass’ lends itself to pharaphrasing Ivy Compton-Burnett’s words: pride goes before a fall, but male pride may continue after. In Raji Narasimhan’s precise and vivid translations from their Hindi originals, the stories truly come in. Apart from the general reader, Not without Reason and Other Stories will appeal to students of gender studies and comparative literature. Printed Pages: 136. 037023

Justice: Political, Social, Juridical
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0761936475; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book looks at concepts of justice from points of view of various religious and cultural traditions (Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Cosmopolitanism, Tribal Cultures) and different methodological perspectives (historical, theological, philosophical, sociological). One common thread in these essays is the reflection on ethics universally and reference to the basic values of the Indian constitution. People from different backgrounds were included in the dialogue process on justice that lead to this publication. This volume attempts to express the opinions of people whose voices were not very prominent in theoretical debates on justice and its practical implications. Their perspectives on justice are contrasted with mainstream conceptions of justice, whose representativeness for India today is thereby challenged. Both plain universalism and relativism lack a common point of reference to assess relevance and adequacy of a given conception of justice. Neither plain universalism nor relativism defined by traditional norms is sustainable. The contributors offer a concept of `internal universalism` as an alternative to plain universalism. Combining various forms and stages of `reflective equilibrium` as conceived by John Rawls, this framework provides us with the necessary reference point to assess the relevance and adequacy of conceptions of justice and engage in a comprehensive dialogue on questions of justice.
