It features paintings from his student days – from the Calcutta College of Art and Crafts, when Burman was heavily influenced by the school of Impressionism and painters like Paul Gauguin and Vincent Van Gogh, and from the time he spent at the L’Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts in Paris in 1956.As Burman continued to live in Paris – he relocated to Delhi in 2009 – and travel around Europe, the infusion of motifs from Western art history is evident in his work as is the introduction of subjects from Indian myths upon repeated visits to his homeland.

Darfur and the Crisis of Governance in Sudan: A Critical Reader
Cornell University Press; Ithaca, New York, USA; 2009; 0801475945; First Edition; Paperback; New; 18 x 24 Cm 
The ongoing conflict in the western Sudanese region of Darfur has received unprecedented attention from the international media and human rights organizations, and it has captured the attention of millions of people around the world. Those seeking to learn about the conflict, as well as those who have reported on it, often rely on information produced by the various organizations that are addressing the humanitarian crises spawned by the conflict. In turn, most coverage of the Darfur crisis provides only a cursory understanding of the historical, economic, political, sociological, and environmental factors that contribute to the conflict. Moreover, the perspectives of the people of Darfur and the Sudan have not been adequately heard. As a result, Sudanese civil society’s active engagement in resolving the country’s problems goes unrecognized. Darfur and the Crisis of Governance in Sudan remedies this situation by bringing together a diverse group of contributors from Sudan and beyond—scholars, activists, NGO and aid workers, members of government and the Darfurian rebel movements, and artists—who share a deep knowledge of the situation in Darfur and Sudan. Together, they provide the most comprehensive, balanced, and nuanced account yet published of the conflict’s roots and the contemporary realities that shape the experiences of those living in the region. The cross-disciplinary dialogue fostered by Salah M. Hassan and Carina E. Ray yields a comprehensive understanding of the causes, manifestations, and implications of the ongoing conflict. Many of the contributors emphasize that despite the international attention Darfur has received, it is those within Darfur and Sudan—both in preexisting organizations and in newly formed alliances—who have taken the lead in seeking local solutions. This book features a portfolio of affecting full-color photographs of daily life in Darfur by the acclaimed photographer Issam A. Abdelhafiez and, significantly, an extensive appendix of official local and international documents about the conflict—laws, decrees, resolutions, reports, and governmental statements—that have shaped both the crisis and its global perception. Collected here for the first time, these documents are invaluable as primary sources for researchers, students, activists, NGOs, and anyone else trying to understand the complexities of the crisis.

26511 Salahuddin Ahmed
A Dictionary of Muslim Names
Hurst & Company; London, UK; 1850653577; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
The resurgence and revitalisation of Mulsim culture have created a growing interest in the sudy of Muslim names. Throughout the world Muslims share similar names, be they in the Middle East, the Indian subcontinent, South-East Asia or new migrants in the West. And it should not be forgotten that the first thing Allah taught Adam was names. The predominant language in Muslim names is Arabic, followed by Persian (Farsi), the two major languages which transmitted Muslim culture in its early stages and later expansion. An important source of Mulsim names consists of the ninety-nine attributes of Allah mentioned in the Qur'an and the hadith. According to Islamic belief, the relationship between man and his Creator is that of servant and master, and therefore a Muslim feels gratified to be named as a servant of one of the attributes of Allah. The purpose of this dictionary is to give the meaning or bearing on Islamic heritage of the words, Arabic or Persian, which form parts of Muslim names. By way of illustration, it gives references to Muslims who left their mark on history in different ages, in different fields, and in various parts of the world. Where appropriate, The Qur'an is cited. Therefore it is not merely a compilation of Mulsim names but a reference work pertaining to the broad field of Islam. For most people, a name appears more significant when it is identified as having been borne by an Imam, a Khalifa, a Mujahid (fighter for the cause of Islam), a Sultan, a saint, an author or a jurist who shaped the history of Islam. Many Muslims with names that comprise Arabic or Persian words are unaware of their meaning or bearing on Islamic heritage, particularly if they are unfamiliar with these languages. It is important for parents and guardians to devote time to selecting suitable names for children by consulting authentic books on manes and re-checking them from standard Arabic-English and/or Perian-English dictionaries. This dictionary simplifies this process. Contents Introduction Male Names Female Names Bibliography. Printed Pages: 367. 027166

Management Development: A Psychological Approach
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1993; 8121204445; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book presents a Framework which facilitates Designing need-based, result oriented Management Development interventions. The Human Resource Development may be optimized in Organizations in General and public sector organizations in particular on the Recommendations made in the book. The HRD may be optimized in public sector organizations especially the loss-incurring sick organizations units through strategies and approaches suggested in the book. The latest Humanistic Organism perspective offered by management researchers and practitioners has vital global applicability potential. Based on this perspective a Research Study was carried out and the Results strongly support the Humanistic organismic perspective. Perceptions of training experience of managers is found to be influenced crucially by psychological correlates, personality variables, individual differences and attitudes. Unfortunately, the psychological Bases to behaviour have not been given due Importance and therefore interventions in Management Development need to be given adequate importance to these bases. The study strongly support the hypothesis that Perception of training experience of managers can be predicted by psychological correlates. The book provides an interesting reading and an insight into design of meaningful and enriching Management Development interventions for managers who are responsible to bring about total HRD in an organization. The study thus becomes an important hallmark to bring about HRD and its Optimization in public sector organizations especially the sick public sector units which are presently causing greater concern to the government.Printed Pages: 214. 105768

26516 Salil Misra
A Narrative of Communal Politics: Uttar Pradesh 1937-39
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2001; 0761995056; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 5.5" x 8.5" 
The promulgation of the Government of India Act of 1935 not only reinforced the phenomenon of separate electorates on the basis of religion but led to a dramatic change in the nature of communalism in the Indian subcontinent. This is the story of how the different political forces in Uttar Pradesh—the Congress, the Muslim League, the landlords and the Hindu Mahasabha—responded to the new context, and how they strove to establish control over the available political space. This seminal work is a significant departure from other studies of the period, in that it addresses communalism as an independent force, acutely conscious of its interests and very keen on preserving itself, and not allied to either the Congress or the British.

26517 Salil Tripathi
Detours: Songs of the Open Road
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789385152924; Softcover; New; 
When Salil Tripathi began writing a travel column for a well known newspaper, he consciously decided to veer off the beaten track and not showcase the food and drink or the fabulous hotels and world class restaurants of a country. Instead, it was his insights into a place that defined a country and its people when viewed from the prism of history, culture and literature.Culled from his extensive travel writings, Detours: Songs of the Open Road is split into three parts, the first section called, War & After is a riveting account of places that were shattered due to terrible wars or human rights violations; the second titled, Words & Images, about places he visualised better because certain writers or artists made those places fascinating; and the third called Loss & Remembrance, is a wonderful personal journey about countries he visited with his wife who died in 2006 and which he later revisited with his sons as remembrance to a beloved.Detours: Songs of the Open Road is a remarkable travel diary of a man who holds your hand and takes you through fascinating journeys which you make your own by the end of his travel. 109741

26520 Salim Ali
The Illustrated Salim Ali: The Fall of a Sparrow
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0195687477; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The Fall of a Sparrow tells the real life story of adventure and self-discovery of Sálim Ali, India’s original bird man. Chronicling an era gone by and vividly describing forgotten landscapes, this engaging tale describes how a childhood curiosity for nature and an intrepid adventuring spirit led to an unusual career choice. Eighty-seven at the time of writing and an internationally renowned figure, Ali vividly describes his childhood adventures in the wild and subsequent expeditions to almost every part of the Indian subcontinent. The birdwatching stories are interspersed with lively details of family life and youthful adventuring. The more than 100 visuals—comprising photographs, line drawings, and paintings of birds by past masters like G.M. Henry, J.P. Irani, and C.J.F. Coombs—are an unusual feature of this adapted edition. These paintings were originally prepared for the ten-volume Handbook of the Birds of India and Pakistan (OUP, 1971) which continues to be in print even today. The colour plate section, featuring some of these paintings in their original avatar, makes this illustrated edition a delight both for young readers and for collectors. 027229

26521 Salim Ali
The Book of Indian Birds 13th Edition
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2003; 0195665236; Thirteenth Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
This much-awaited revised edition includes the extensive changes in the scientific and common bird names that have taken place since the last revision in 1996. Following the publication, in 2001, of the list of Standardized Common and Scientific Names of the Birds of the Indian Subcontinent in the Buceros 6 (1), the common and scientific names have been modified based on this list. It is expected that this will provide uniformity in the names used throughout the Subcontinent and outside, and help birdwatchers to communicate better while exchanging their observations. The Alternate Common Names given in the earlier edition have been removed. The Index of common names of species, giving plate and serial numbers, has been replaced with separate Indexes of Scientific and Common names according to page numbers. Minor errors that were overlooked in the earlier edition have also been rectified. Dr. Salim Ali last revised and enlarged the BOOK OF INDIAN BIRDS in 1979 when the eleventh edition was published. This edition described and illustrated 296 species, and was last published in 1992. Thereafter, it was decided that the Book should be enlarged to cover the common and interesting birds of all biogeographic zones in India to make the book a useful field guide for the Subcontinent. This revised and enlarged edition of the book is being brought out to commemorate the centenary of Dr. Salim Ali and his seminal contribution to the popularisation of the study of birds in India, which began with the publication of the 1st edition of the BOOK OF INDIAN BIRDS fifty-four years ago, in 1941. The edition covers 538 species, the descriptions of which have been compiled from Dr. Salim Ali s writings to maintain the same style and format. The illustrations are new and have been specially prepared for this edition by the noted bird artist Carl D Silva except for one plate on the mynas which was prepared by Dr. Salim Ali s favourite bird illustrator Mr. J. P. Irani. The 538 species have been accommodated in 64 plates. Each of the species illustrated in the plates has been provided with brief captions giving status, whether resident or migratory, size and form, key identification characters, habitat and distribution. The book ends, as did the earlier editions, with Dr. Salim Ali s notes on nesting, migration, bird watching, etc. The book remains a guide to the beginner and a handy reference for the serious amateur as well as for the professional ornithologists.

26529 Sally Howard
The Kama Sutra Diaries: Intimate Journeys Through Modern India
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789383260942; Softcover; New; 
Sally Howard, a self-confessed child of the Western Sexual Revolution, sets out on a ‘Sexploration’ through modern India by train, plane and auto-rickshaw. From the heat of anti-rape protest on the streets of New Delhi to the cool hills of Shimla, playground of the Raj from a Gujarati retirement home for gay men and eunuchs to a busy sex clinic in Chennai from patriarchs to matriarchs, GIGs (Good Indian Girls), BIGs (Bad Indian Girls) and the fleshpots of Bombay, she accompanied by feisty Delhi girl Dimple lifts the bed sheets on India’s sexual revolution. And it’s a revolution that’s full of fascinating surprises and contrasts for India – the land that gave us the exuberant guide to sexual pleasure, the Kama Sutra is also a land where women remain cloistered in purdah while teenage girls check out porn online where families bow down to a conjoined phallus and vagina, the ‘Shivaling’, while couples fear to hold hands in public and where the loveless arranged marriage is still the norm. Colourful, compelling, confounding, The Kama Sutra Diaries reveals what India has to tell us about modern-day love, sex and sexuality.‘Absolutely riveting. I could not put it down. Everything you wanted to know about sex in India, but never dared to ask.’ – Mark Shand, author of Travels on my Elephant and winner of the Travel Writer of the Year award. 109650

26530 Salma Ahmed
Cutting Free: The Extraordinary Memoir of a Pakistani Women
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174365044; Softcover; New; 
Beginning with a privileged childhood in an elite family of pre-partition India, to a troubled youth in Pakistan, this is the inspiring story of Salma Ahmed - a woman who surmounted formidable odds to achieve extraordinary success in business and politics. In this strikingly honest and candid account, Salma talks of her three marriages - to a naval officer, a scion of a leading feudal family, and a cricketing star; her conflicts as a mother as she makes the agonising decision to give up two of her six children; and her efforts to build a career as an entrepreneur and political figure in an emerging Pakistan. As she recounts the events of a life filled with dramatic highs and equally painful lows, she does not spare herself any more than she does other players in her story.This is a book that unabashedly reveals many of the hidden taboos of contemporary Pakistani society, bringing into question customs that are an integral, if unpleasant, part of subcontinental culture. Salma Ahmed's gripping narration of her political career is fast-paced and often amusing. The book relates events of the 1985 Assembly, which no other author has yet commented on. Her interaction with the late President Zia-ul-Haq and Prime Minister Mohammad Khan Junejo, MQM leader Altaf Hussain, the charismatic Pir Sahib Pagaro, and several others, gave her a unique opportunity to witness first-hand the intrigue, power plays and unfolding drama of Pakistani politics. Her frequent visits to India brought her into contact with Indira Gandhi, her son Rajiv, and many other leading figures of the sub-continent. This is the absorbing tale of a woman who was a pampered child, an unhappy wife, a repentant mother - but one who emerged triumphant as a woman of substance, in business and politics.

The Syntax of Chichewa
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2004; 0521573785; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 228 x 152 Mm 
This comprehensive book provides a detailed description of the major syntactic structures of Chichewa. Assuming no prior knowledge of current theory, it covers topics such as relative clause and question formation, interactions between tone and syntactic structure, aspects of clause structure such as complementation, and phonetics and phonology. It also provides a detailed account of argument structure, in which the role of verbal suffixation is examined. Sam Mchombo’s description is supplemented by observations about how the study of African languages, specifically Bantu languages, has contributed to progress in grammatical theory, including the debates that have raged within linguistic theory about the relationship between syntax and the lexicon, and the contributions of African linguistic structure to the evaluation of competing grammatical theories. Clearly organised and accessible, The Syntax of Chichewa will be an invaluable resource for students interested in linguistic theory and how it can be applied to a specific language. • Clearly written and accessible • Author has unparalleled expertise on Chichewa, with good balance of coverage and depth • Includes rich referencing of contemporary African literature on Bantu Contents 1.

Development Under Stress: Sri Lankan Economy in Transition
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0761935363; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Sri Lanka is credited with being the pioneer of economic liberalisation in South Asia. Why, then, is economic progress painfully slow with the outcome being far below the country’s potential? This book examines the process of development and the implementation of reforms in Sri Lanka after the economic liberalisation of 1977. The author shows that while part of the story lies in the ongoing conflict in the North-East, which has lasted over 20 years, there are a number of other factors which have impeded economic progress, thereby, designating it development under stress The book describes the key features of the Sri Lankan socio-political and economic system that prevented the country from achieving higher levels of economic growth. It explains why the country could not match the economic achievements of South Korea and Malaysia— countries that had similar per capita income levels to that of Sri Lanka in the 1950s. The author focuses on five core themes: - Economic development since Independence - The debate on economic liberalisation - Macroeconomic management - Sectoral policy - Employment and poverty.

South Asia in the WTO
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0761936149; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
South Asia, with its large population, has emerged as an important player in the WTO and the current negotiations under the Doha Round. Nevertheless, the countries in the region face a formidable challenge in analyzing and synthesizing proposals and submissions made by other WTO members. Previous studies have looked at the subject from a WTO issues-based perspective but not necessarily from the country capacity perspective. In this book the contributors examine the position of each South Asian country in the multilateral trading system as defined by the WTO and highlight various concerns they have on key WTO issues in agriculture, industry, services and development. The possibility of South Asian countries formulating a common position in the WTO negotiations is also explored in detail. This book is useful for academics, policy makers, civil society activists, undergraduate students of Development Economics and anyone with an interest in the WTO vis-a-vis South Asia.

Trade in Services in South Asia: Opportunities and Risks of Liberalization
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8178299372; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This collection of essays explores the opportunities and risks of the liberalization of trade in services in South Asia. It offers an overview of the entire region on market access and regulatory issues as defined by the GATS framework of the WTO and exposes areas for regional and bilateral liberalization. It provides policymakers and other stakeholders in the region with better comprehension of the problems pertaining to these, and consequently, shows them a clearer vision of how to overcome them. The compilation provides insight into the offensive and defensive interests in trade in services of the whole region. The essays survey the formidable challenges that South Asia faces—cost implications, “policy space” restrictions, stakeholder managing—while trying to comply with the GATS regulations on the one hand, and the often inadequate legal provisions and regulatory structures of the individual countries, on the other. It will hold great value for students, researchers, and faculty working in the fields of Economics and Development Studies and South Asia Studies, besides being a useful resource for policy makers.

This Divided Island: Stories from the Sri Lankan War
Penguin Books India Pvt. Ltd.; Delhi, India; 2014; 0670086037; Hardcover; New; New; 
In the summer of 2009, the leader of the dreaded Tamil Tiger guerrillas was killed, bringing to a bloody end the stubborn and complicated civil war in Sri Lanka. For nearly thirty years, the war’s fingers had reached everywhere: into the bustle of Colombo, the Buddhist monasteries scattered across the island, the soft hills of central Sri Lanka, the curves of the eastern coast near Batticaloa and Trincomalee, and the stark, hot north. With its genius for brutality, the war left few places, and fewer people, untouched.What happens to the texture of life in a country that endures such bitter conflict? What happens to the country’s soul? Samanth Subramanian gives us an extraordinary account of the Sri Lankan war and the lives it changed. Taking us to the ghosts of summers past, and to other battles from other times, he draws out the story of Sri Lanka today—an exhausted, disturbed society, still hot from the embers of the war. Through travels and conversations, he examines how people reconcile themselves to violence, how religion and state conspire, how the powerful become cruel, and how victory can be put to the task of reshaping memory and burying histories.Printed Pages: 336. 103395

Notes from Gandhigram: Challenges to Gandhian Praxis
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8125036881; First Edition; Paperback; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
In a critical departure from books that concentrate on Gandhi the person, Gandhian thought and Gandhism, Notes from Gandhigram focuses instead on the institutions and individuals that have adopted the Gandhian approach as a means of social transformation. It looks beyond the conceptual and symbolic into the concrete to determine whether Gandhi is passé, redundant or insightful. The relevance of Gandhian thought is examined through a critical analysis of the experience of the Gandhigram Trust, a sixty-year old organisation based in the Dindigul district of Tamil Nadu. Retaining objectivity, but without being judgmental, the study validates the enduring relevance of Gandhi in converting a vision into a social engagement, creating a vibrant community with a culture of concern, humility and care. While Gandhigram has been buffeted by the conflicting relationships between individuals and the institutions, the people and the volunteer, economics and politics, tradition and modernity, self-interest and social interest, the Trust has endured. In today's world, where the legacy of Gandhi has been reduced to lip-service, this book places Gandhi squarely into the ongoing debates on globalisation, freedom and the relationship between the individual and society. It thus makes a valuable addition to the literature on Gandhi. Printed Pages: 264. 031555

Politics of Globalization
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 817829947X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Politics of Globalization presents an up-to-date perspective on the kaleidoscopic politics of globalization. The authors analyse the existing definitions of capitalism and argue that globalization and the consequent growing multi-polarity in world politics is not a crisis but a proliferation of capitalisms. This network of capitalisms becomes the framework of the politics of the new globalization. This compilation by social scientists across the globe is an empirical and theoretical exploration of the socio-political responses to globalization. The authors examine the impacts of the decline of the US domination in trade and finance and compare it to the rise of Asian economies, with special focus on China and India. The articles explore the multiple impacts of globalization: the impact of new global political relations on 21st century international division of labour, the relation between gender equality and globalization, trade union politics and globalization, ecological politics and globalization discourse, dual citizenship and global politics, and globalization of language and culture. They also discuss the anti-globalization movements and argue that these might change the course of current trends in globalization processes. This book will be of great value for social scientists and economists as well as politicians, social activists, and other professionals interested in the study of globalization and its consequences.

Blisters on their Feet: Tales of Internally Displaced Persons in India's North East
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 076193653X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
India's North East is fast becoming yet another zone of natural and man-made disasters, intercommunity strife, and violent conflicts. This has lead to its accounting for the largest number of people constantly on the move in the country, and hence the analogy in the book title with Blisters on their Feet. This book is a compendium of case studies drawn from Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, and Tripura - the four worst-affected states of the region. This book is the first of its kind, weaving the stories of the people of this region with rare insight, sensitivity, and commitment, and without any theoretical pretensions. The editor's introduction serves as a useful key to conceptualizing internal displacement as a research problem and a matter of national concern. The book helps us understand the human tragedy of this region in a wider comparative context. Printed Pages: 352. 028092

India: Democracy and Violence
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2015; 0199451834; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Violence is usually located outside the democratic domain. Its recurrence is understood as a direct threat to democracy. Democracies are called upon to 'manage', 'tackle', or 'deal with' it, not necessarily through democratic means. Today, democracy is sought to be 'exported' across continents by waging war on countries that, according to the exporting countries of the West,are yet to become democratic. This book contests and demystifies the celebrationist understanding of democracy and argues that violence is embedded in democracy as much as democracy is embedded in violence. Their interconnected existence has only made democracy violent and violence one of the many ways of trying to make a democracy work. So, more of democracy does not necessarily mean less of violence and vice versa. Viewed in this light, this book examines the connection as organic and one of mutually spiralling nature. Democratic institutions and violence are thus implicated in an endless dialogue and confrontation. The alternative to democracy can only be a better democracy.Printed Pages: 268. 104488

The Unwaba Revelations: Part Three of the GameWorld Trilogy
Penguin; London, UK; 2007; 0143103520; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 x 20 Cm 
Under the all-seeing eyes of the assembled gods, armies are on the move. The Game has begun. And when it ends, the world will end too . . . In The Unwaba Revelations, the third and concluding part of the GameWorld trilogy, a way must be found to save the world; to defeat the gods at their own game. A daunting prospect under any circumstances, made worse by the fact that the gods, who control all the heroes, are blatantly cheating by following only one rule—that they cannot be defeated by their own creations. As epic battles ravage the earth, Kirin and Maya, guided only by an old, eccentric and extremely unreliable chameleon, and egged on by the usual rag-tag gang, carry out their secret plan; a plan so secret that, in fact, no one involved has any idea what they are doing! Monsters, mayhem, mud-swamps; conspiracies, catastrophes, chimeras; betrayals, buccaneers, bloodshed—The Unwaba Revelations continues the roller coaster journey that began with The Simoqin Prophecies and gathered momentum with The Manticore’s Secret. Traversing earth, sea and sky, realms both infernal and celestial, worlds both imagined and material, this book will draw you irresistibly into a tantalizing, action-packed, epic race to reclaim the flawed, magical world of its heroes.

The Simoqin Prophecies: Part One of the GameWorld Trilogy
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0143030434; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
The Simoqin Prophecies marks the debut of an assured new voice. Written with consummate ease and brimming with wit and allusion, it is at once classic sff and subtle spoof, featuring scantily clad centauresses, flying carpets, pink trolls, belly dancers and homicidal rabbits. Monty Python meets the Ramayana, Alice in Wonderland meets The Lord of the Rings and Robin Hood meets The Arabian Nights in this novel-a breathtaking ride through a world peopled by different races and cultures from mythology and history. The Prophecies foretell the reawakening of the terrible rakshas, Danh-Gem, and the arrival of a hero to face him. But heroes do not appear magically out of nowhere; they have to be found and trained. And sometimes the makers of prophecies don't know everything they need to know... As the day of Danh-Gem's rising draws closer and the chosen hero is sent on a quest, another young man learns of terrible things he must do in secret and the difficult choices he must make in order to save the world from the rakshas. Drawn from a variety of sources ranging from Greek and Indian epics to spy novels, fairy tales to superhero comics, The Simoqin Prophecies is a compelling tale, marked by meticulous plotting and artful storytelling-a page-turner sure to grip you from start to finish.

Local Monsters
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789383260249; Softcover; New; 
That first year in a new city is always tough, especially if that city is Delhi. New job, new friends, new problems. Falling in love, dealing with your neighbors, simply surviving, the sitcom life. It’s difficult enough for humans. For monsters it’s far worse. Because a few fangs and horns and supernatural powers really don’t equip you to deal with the sheer hostility of the everyday world around you. But they do make you a target. You have secret government agencies, inter-dimensional conspiracies and all kinds of other bizarre nonsense to deal with. Everyone you meet wants to kill you or run your life. But you still have to pay the electricity bill in time. Meet Latha, Bela, Tashi and Indra. They’re your Local Monsters. “Finally, a book that understands people like me. Humans should enjoy it too” – Vikram Singh, rakshas. “I thought it was just me, this made me feel ok about eating my landlord” – Akanksha Patel, were tiger. “We deny everything. There is no Government department that deals with monsters and if there were, it would be efficient and corruption free” – Murali Ganesh, Govt. spokesperson. 109607
