Muslim Communities in Gujarat: Preliminary Studies in their History and Social Organization
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1985; 812150077X; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
Nothing in Indian studies is more fascinating-or more instructive-than an inquiry into the process of social and cultural dynamism of which Indian society and Indian culture are direct results. The rise and growth of Indian communities especially of communities like the Indian Muslim communities, the adaptation of the Great Tradition to the Little in a land where emergent social forms were the rule rather than the exception, and the resultant, configurations, social and interpersonal-in brief, the symbiosis which has been the warp and the wood of Indian life and society and a process which is peculiarly and characteristically India, required to by studied in its manifold aspects. The present study is an attempt in this direction, a preliminary effort to analyse some aspects of this process as they have been illustrated in the evolution of the Muslim communities in Gujarat and in their present-day social configurations. In the words of Professor G.E. von Grunebaum, "it opens the door to one of the least investigated sectors of the Islamic world and it provides a rich introduction to the composition and stratification of Gujarati Islam and the social realities within which the Muslim faith is lived in the complexities of an area where traditions are commingled rather than blended."

Communalism: A Socio-Political Study
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8121206936; Hardcover; New; New; 
As the world enters the third millennium, there would still be many a social, economic and Political ailments that the 21st century has inherited from the 20th century. In the specific Context of the Indian subcontinent, of those ailments, communalism still remains a significant and disturbing feature both in the National and International context. The Ethnic strifes, intercommunity disharmony and social tension do not seem to ebb out either in Asia or in Europe, On the contrary in the ethnic and communal context the world has seen numerous mini-wars. Nearer home the History of the British Raj in India displays distinctly that they, instead of curbing 'Communalism', partitioned India. They also left a communal legacy, which has grown during last 53 years in spite of Creating two nations, viz., India and Pakistan, as two uncomfortable neighbours. The British legacy of Two Nation Theory has since led to the making of a 3rd nation in Bangladesh. What exactly happened during the British governance of India, therefore, deserves to be studied in depth. This scholarly book makes a specific modest attempt to examine the social, economic, political and allied aspects of communalism up to the year 1947, as they grew and then led to the dismemberment of the Indian subcontinent. It is expected that this Study may throw some light on the method of good governance for multi-cultural Societies in future.Printed Pages: 428. 105933

Religion, State, and Society in Medieval India: Collected Works of S. Nurul Hasan
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195667654; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
S. Nurul Hasan acquired the reputation of a pioneering historian of the medieval period soon after he began his brilliant career. The ideas put forth by him continue to remain significant even after his death. His collected essays, written over the span of a lifetime, cover a wide range of topics: historiography and new sources state, religion, and the ruling class and urban and rural life. The various essays demonstrate Professor Hasan s varied interests and the evolution of his ideas on medieval Indian history. Professor Satish Chandra s introduction familiarizes the reader with his personality, achievements, and monumental contribution to Indian history-writing. The section on historiography deals with the manner in which Indian history has been distorted, both in the past, by British imperial historians, and in more current times by Indian communal historians. It also raises the problem of nationalities in medieval India, once a subject of intense debate. Part II of the volume deals with the state, religion, and ruling classes. It offers a new interpretation of Akbar s religious views, and also includes a number of articles on the crucial role of zamindars in medieval India. There is also a well-researched essay on the theory of the Nur Jahan Junta. The third section of the book examines urban and rural life in the period and includes essays on agrarian production and prices of food grain in the territory of Amber. The final section looks at some important sources of late Mughal history, and also considers the Afghan-Mughal conflict. Printed Pages: 340. 011786

The Problem of Caste (Readings on the Economy, Polity and Society)
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125055010; Softcover; New; 
Caste is one of the oldest concerns of the social sciences in India that continues to be relevant even today. This book tracks how scholars from different disciplines have responded to the caste question in independent India and highlights recent shifts in perspective.The general perception about caste is that it is an outdated concept that was slowly but inevitably dying out until it was revived by colonial policies and promoted by vested interests and electoral politics after independence. However, this hegemonic perception changed irrevocably in the 1990s after the controversial reservations for the Other Backward Classes recommended by the Mandal Commission. Mandal triggered a new awakening by revealing that only a privileged upper caste minority believed in the declining significance of caste—for the vast majority of Indians caste continued to be a crucial determinant of life opportunities. This volume collects significant writings spanning seven decades, three generations and several disciplines. The introduction contextualises established perspectives in relation to emergent concerns, and is followed by forty essays organised into six sections.Printed Pages: 436. 101745

Holy Smoke:
Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789382711148; Softcover; New; 
Holy Smoke, It's a Godman is a first person narrative delivered from a jail in Copenhagen. In autobiographical mode, it invites the reader to take a journey across India with Jogender Dutt alias Redney Yog, a boy from Rajasthan who runs away to Mumbai and due to a series of bizarre circumstances, lands up in an ashram in the Himalayas where spirituality is merely a cover for nefarious activities. And then onto Denmark, to marry a gorgeous blonde and merge into a 21st century hippie community.Along the way, Yog has encounters with colourful characters like Sikh truck driver Rounak Singh, a Catholic gay Father Goodwin, slumdog Ali Murtaza and Aghori sadhu Baba Mastana. He is exposed to the best of Hindu philosophy and yet, in the same environment, plumbs the depths of human depravity.Why does he thank President George Bush for changing his life? Why does he kill Chacha Imam, a Muslim fundamentalist in Copenhagen? With unexpected twists and turns, and a light-hearted questioning of politics, morality and drug laws, it offers a glimpse of how exciting our globalised lives have become.

The Eyes of the Thar brings the desert in western Rajasthan alive through the sensitive eyes of the multi-talented artist Satish Gupta. His poetry and drawing come together, words and images weaving an intricate web of reflection, repose, distance and intimacy as they meld thought and feeling and compel one to pause and wonder. The reader is taken on a timeless journey through the carved havelis, the frescoed walls, the wondrous life of royalty and the colours of desert fairs to the vast open expanses of the dunes with nomads on camel back winding their way through eternity. Satish Gupta has travelled extensively in the Thar desert in western Rajasthan, living with nomads and experiencing the desert in all its intensity. He has held one-man shows on his desert series in New Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, Calcutta, the Gallery Bose-Pacia Modern in New York and the Gallery GO in Amsterdam.

Satish Jacob from Hotel Palestine Baghdad: Pages From A War Diary
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8174362924; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 8.5 x 5.5 Inches 
The only eyewitness account of the US-led war to topple the Iraqi President, Saddam Hussein. A day-by-day retelling from the battlefield by Satish Jacob, the only Indian correspondent in Baghdad. From Baghdad’s Hotel Palestine, Satish’s spirited reports were the only eyewitness accounts of the drama of those days on Indian television. They were also special in that his perception of the events differed significantly from that of the Western media more prone to accept uncritically the invading armies’ version of events. From Hotel Palestine, Satish Jacob writes of a nation devastated on a whim, and explains Iraq’s role in the Arab world, the complex relationships that divide the region’s Muslims, Christians and Jews. Above all, he applauds the courage of the Iraqis in this war of unequals, and shows us that while Saddam may be a loathsome monster for some, he is a nation-builder like Turkey’s Ataturk to others.

India’s National Security: Annual Review 2007
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8187966734; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
India is moving ahead in improving its relations with the major and middle powers and availing of the opportunities being offered by strategic partnerships and economic cooperation agreements with such powers. India's relations with the United States have acquired special importance as the United States opens up to India for transfer of high technology, including that in the defence and nuclear fields, in the hope that India will be a valuable partner in maintaining international stability and countering global terrorism. However, the great debate in India pertaining to the Indo-US nuclear deal of 2005 persists with the objective of preserving India's strategic autonomy while accessing the benefits of a stronger relationship with the United States.The relationship with Russia continues to be strengthened, particularly in the field of defence cooperation. However, relations with China, despite improvement in trade, hang in the balance until the border dispute is resolved. There is still mistrust between the two countries which stands in the way of concretizing their strategic partnership. Pakistan remains a source of threat even though atmospherics have become more positive. Militancy and terrorism in J&K and other parts of India originating from Pakistan cast a dark shadow over Indo-Pak relations, with no end in sight.While such a mix of hope and despair constitutes the external security environment of India, there is nothing but despair as regards the internal security situation. These and various other aspects of India's national security, including the threats and challenges that face the country in the years ahead, have been discussed in great detail in this seventh volume of India's National Security Annual Review.Printed Pages: 674. 104448

26826 Satish Saberwal and Supriya Varma (eds.)
Traditions in Motion: Religion and Society in History
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195669150; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This collection of original essays engages with the historical dynamics of traditions and their ways of surviving and adapting. Part of a critical and conscious task of representing and analysing tradition, these essays unravel the theoretical dimensions of the term. In doing so they also examine musical, literary, architectural, political, and historical traditions that have been crucial to South Asia. In a comprehensive introduction, the editors draw out the implications that representation and analysis of traditions have for the humanities. They demonstrate that traditions are continuously renewing themselves and can be carriers of political and cultural meaning while deriving sustenance from available social practices. The editors also point to the function of institutions -- religious, social and political -- in maintaining, negotiating, and re-creating traditions. With this analysis, Saberwal and Varma prepare the framework for the essays -- covering a wide range of themes tha t ultimately have a bearing on contemporary reality. Beginning with the challenge of locating social reality in the architectural remains of a tradition, and demonstrating that all traditions have breaks and disjunctures, these essays traverse the spectrum to assess older textual traditions for voices of authority. Varying representations of the Ramayana -- including those recently televised -- as well as oral traditions in Islam reveal the workings of cultural practices over time. This collection also covers important aspects of the evolution of religious traditions within the context of syncretic practices as well as cultural boundaries, and gender and caste divisions. The later contributions demonstrate the continuities between religious tradition, caste mobility, and political legitimacy. This collection is significant for contributions from eminent scholars as also for the insider's view through voices across disciplines. This volume will be of great interest to students and scholars of history and sociology as well as those interested in living institutions and cultural and political practices.

Understanding Japjee Sahib: The Essence of Guru Granth Sahib
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789383649013; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
It is said that if you want to understand the whole of Guru Granth Sahib, you can do so by understanding Japjee alone because Guru Nanaks message was complete in Japjee itself. The rest of the Guru Granth Sahib is an interpretation, elaboration and explanation of Japjee Sahib. Japjee, the first composition of Guru Nanak, contains the most valuable and authentic expression of the divine experience he had when he went missing for three days. Japjee was his first utterance when he returned after his encounter with the divine. Japjee contains the gist of his entire journey through which he was transformed from a seeker to the enlightened master. It is a roadmap for those who wish to walk this path. Understanding Japjee Sahib is an attempt to capture the essence of Guru Granth Sahib. The original script is presented in three languages to cater to the readers who do not know the Gurmukhi script. The translation is given in the poetic form to highlight the meaning rather than present a word-for-word translation. In addition, it is an attempt to dive deep into some very profound concepts to make it easy for the readers to grasp them and imbibe them in their day-to-day life.Printed Pages: 148. 104280

Understanding Guru Granth Sahib: The Living Guru
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2010; 9789380502342; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Guru Granth Sahib, the holy book of the Sikhs, is considered the living guru. When the tenth master, Guru Gobind Singh declared that after him there will be no human guru, he instructed his followers to seek guidance from the eleventh and eternal guru, the Guru Granth Sahib. Guru Granth Sahib is unique in more ways than one. First of all, the entire voluminous scripture of 1430 pages is composed in poetry and can be sung with full-throated ease. Almost all of it has been set to music based on 31 ragas. It contains verses composed not only by the Gurus but also by Hindu and Muslim bhagats. Understanding Guru Granth Sahib by Satjit Wadva is a beginner's guide to approach and understand Guru Granth Sahib. It gives a glimpse of what it contains and outlines the context of how it came to be revered as the living guru. While it summarises the essence of the Guru Granth Sahib in simple and easy-to-understand language, it highlights the beauty of the poetic diction, the economy of words, the depth of thought and its rendition in the prescribed ragas— all this to awaken a thirst in the seekers' hearts so that they approach their guru directly without depending on interpreters or intermediaries.Printed Pages: 204. 104401

Understanding The Spiritual Dialogue: Siddha Goshti
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789383649587; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Siddha Goshti is Guru Nanak’s dialogues with some sages. These sages had renounced the world and were living in caves in the Himalayas. They were yogis who believed in practising physical and mental exercises for the attainment of spiritual powers (siddhis), which would ultimately lead to moksha (liberation). These dialogues are a summary of Guru Nanak’s views on life in general and spirituality in particular.While these ascetics asserted that one must withdraw from society and family to attain detachment, Guru Nanak said that attachment and detachment were a state of mind. You don’t have to give up anything; you can achieve detachment right in the middle of the marketplace. In fact, true detachment is that which can remain unruffled even in the thick of temptations. The ascetics live away from society but are dependent on the men and women of the world for their survival. Guru Nanak said that all human beings must perform their duties and fulfill their responsibilities so as not to be a burden on society.Printed Pages: 134. 105035

Three Basics of Sikh Religious Thought: Faith, Grace and Prayer (Second Edition)
Pragati Publications; New Delhi, India; 2004; 817307044X; Second Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In all probability, this is the first ever-critical study of faith, grace and prayer in Sikh religious thought from the viewpoint of present day philosophy.Dr. Satnam Kaur all along avails of the two major approaches in philosophy today, namely, those of Phenomenology and linguistic analysis. Thus, care has been taken to unravel the fabric of the (Sikh gurus') living experience of faith, grace and prayer-with minimal damage to its intricate singleness; and, at many a place, meticulous attention to the literal and suggested meanings of Gurbani has enabled the authoress to improve upon the current translations of the Adi Granth.Printed Pages: 342. 101215

Guru Nanak's Japuji: A Look Anew
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 812460701X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The ultimate reality, God or Brahman, may well be said to outstrip the reach of thought; but if we do not try, as thoughtfully as we possibly can, to get at what Guru Nanak really says in this seminal work Japuji — a daily prayer book — how will we be able to benefit from his teaching, as he surely wanted fervently? In the entire history of mankind very few men have been so acutely sensitive to our multifarious suffering, and so keen to show us the way to transcend it for good, as Guru Nanak was. This makes the authors approach this holy work in a new perspective. This volume tries to interpret Mul Mantra in such a way that the celestial attributes listed in it come to be interrelated, as they must be taken to be. It also attempts wherever possible to explain the order of Guru's prolific utterances, be they invocatory or just eulogistic. However ebullient the Guru's utterances may seem to be, they are always significant vehicles of some profound meaning; and also warranted by the running context. Guru Nanak's Japuji is a great work, yet this volume is expected to do some good to every thoughtful reader. At the end, the entire text of Japuji in Punjabi, Devnagari with Roman transliteration is given, making the text accessible to the masses who live outside India and need this prayer to be read in English.Printed Pages: 147. 100399

The book, “Self Offerings”, deals with the Hindu Scriptures such as Vedas, Upanishads and Bhagawad Gita.

The university of Isvarah, the God, as said in Upanishads, states that all that is in this universe is in Oneness with Isvarah, the Lord. Understanding this reality, and living in harmony with the world, is recognizing Isvarah. Then the actions, thoughts, and words are archana (offering) to Isvarah. These harmonious offerings of one’s actions with an understanding of the Lord, is one’s Self Offerings to Isvarah.Printed Pages: 140. 102106

Chandragomin's Twenty Verses on the Bodhisattva Vow
Paljor Publications/Library of Tibetan Works & Archives; New Delhi, India; 1997; 8186470115; Softcover; New; 
Candragomin's Twenty Verses on the Bodhisattva Vow is short, clear and simple. Acharya Candragomin himself was a great Indian lay practitioner (upasaka) of the 7th century, famous for his extensive learning and practice. The commentary to the Twenty Verses was also by a learned Tibetan lay practitioner of the Sakya School of Tibetan Buddhism. He was Sakya Dragpa Gyaltsen ("1147-1216), the third son of Jetsun Kunga Nyingpo, and is believed to have been a direct disciple of Manjushri for seven lifetimes.Famous for his mastery of both sutra and Tantra traditions, Dragpa Gyaltsen's commentary to the Twenty Verses on the Bodkisattva Vow is lucid and very popular within the Sakya School of Tibetan Buddhism. It covers not only a discussion of the basic vow, but also explains the arrangement of the ceremony and provides guidelines for taking the vow. Both the root text and its commentary have been able translated by Dr. Mark Tatz according to an oral commentary given by Khenpo A-pad of the Sakya College.Printed Pages: 80. 103545

Apad - Dharma in the Mahabharata: How to Face Calamities at Personal, State, and Global Levels (When people's Lives Everywhere are Endangered by too much Violence, how can you say, "This is not my problem"? - Mahabharata 12.175.7)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8178223619; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
The literal meaning of the Sanskrit word "Apaddharma" is "dharma appropriate at the time of calamity". The Mahabharata's use of this expression implies that, in the opinion of the author of this epic, the traditional varnashramadharma would not prove to be strong enough to protect the society, if and when there is a calamity. Therefore, Vedic scholars ought to have welcomed the messages of Apad-dharma when the society was actually attacked by external forces during the premodern period. The historical background of the present study poses an important, academic question: "How could the Indian society have protected itself against external attacks during the pre-modern period?" Research-based answers to such Indiarelated questions occupy the initial part of this book to which a global dimension has been added by digging deep into Mahabharata's innumerable stories. Results of innovative investiga-tions into the general question "How to face calamities at personal, state and global levels", are presented here in terms of a modern, scientific framework, and expressed in a non-denominational.Printed Pages: 220. 102043

The World Peace Agenda: Based on Shanti-Parva of the Mahabharata
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2007; Based on Shanti; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
This book presents Shanti-Parva`s peace-messages for consideration by everyone else. With the hope that plenty of purposeful discussion (with an open mind) will be held, to arrive at new proposals which can help bring world peace within the reach of humankind in the twenty-first century. Readers will discover that the peace-promoting messages of Shanti-Parva (when suitably interpreted) have universal appeal even today. These messages envisage the launching of a new peace-initiative, based on the explicit declaration of the Mahabharata verse 12.94.1 that says "wars cannot provide a satisfactory solution to any dispute", and incorporate several novel features which are summarized in the last chapter of this book.Printed Pages: 231. 102123

The Social Message of Mahayana Buddhism (Bodhicaryavatara 4.40 Why Shall I not Persevere, Whole-Heartedly, in Working for the Good of the World, Undeterred by Difficulties?)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8178223848; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
The conceptual origin of this book is linked with the study and research that the authors did in USA from 1953 onward in association with Alan Watts who laid open vast field of research opportunities connected with Buddhism.The research on 'Lokasamgraha' (Good of the world) - which has similarities with Sarvodaya - picked up steam in 1987. Their first book on Lokasamgraha was published in 1993, under the title The Social Role of the Gita: How and Why. The main finding of that book, viz. that the social message of 'Bhagavad-Gita', was 'Lokasamgraha', which received strong support from Gandhian scholars as well as university professors. This prompted them to extend the coverage of research to books which have been influenced by Bhagavad-Gita.While looking for other texts that could be included in the research program, the authors came across Dr. Radhakrishnan's remark (made in 1948) that the most important Mahayana text (The Lotus Sutra) is indebted to Bhagavad-Gita. In fact, quite independently of this remark, their research inevitably meant taking a close look at the important phenomenon of 'Engaged Buddhism'. In this process, they discovered that, while many of the engaged Buddhists had been inspired by the Lotus Sutra, some of them had been inspired by Shantideva's Bodhicaryavatara. The outcome of the consequent enlargement of the scope of the research is presented in this book.Printed Pages: 190. 102409

Practical Vedanta Movement: Prasthanatraya widened to "Panch-Shastra"
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Private Limited/Research India Press; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8178224771; Softcover; New; 
While performing the last rites of his mother (in the face of opposition from other Vedantins), Shankaracharya must have realized that some of the Vedantic messages were not ìpracticalî. In 1823, Rammohun Roy was deeply hurt to see Vedantic scholars promoting ìescapismî. In 1896, Swami Vivekananda gave talks on his vision of Practical Vedanta, to fulfil which he established, in 1897, Ramakrishna Mission as a non-political organization. The scope of Practical Vedanta was widened in the 20th century, by the contributions of TilakAurobindo-Tagore-Gandhi. The whole world admired this great Vedantic movement. In the beginning of the 21st century, Western scholars and activists (drawing inspiration from Vedanta and other philosophies) have taken the lead in further updating of Vedanta, by attaching high priority to the welfare of non-human beings. This pioneering book studies, not only these five contributions, but also three later ones, the most recent being the campaign for ìLiving Vedantaî (presented by Will Tuttle in his own words). Finally, specific suggestions are put forward to answer the question: What does Practical Vedanta mean today? 110015

Psychopathology in Indian Medicine: Ayurveda (With Special Reference to Its Philosophical Bases)
Chaukhamba Sanskrit Pratishthan; Delhi, India; 2000; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Humanity has been toiling hard to conquer pain and death since the dawn of human civilization. Pain occurs in different forms. We are sometimes spiritually pained where as on several occasions we are mentally perturbed and there are occasions when we are physically attacked by pain through various diseases.Ayurveda considers the mental and physical diseases as two separate specialised subjects. However no line of demarcation have been drawn between the mental and psychological diseases and a flexible psychosomatic approach has been worked out. The present work deals with the theoretical and curative aspect of mental health and diseases. The first part deals the nature of mind in Ayurveda, and controversies regarding the location of mind in human organism. While the second part deals with the personality treatment. It also tells about the ideal human personality in Ayurveda. Different mental diseases, their causes, their line of treatment has also been dealt with in detail in the second part.Printed Pages: 586. 101068

The Social Role of the Gita: How and Why
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8120815246; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Although the Bhagavad-gita has traditionally been regarded as a poem of primarily religious significance, Dr. Agarwal shows that with the proper interpretation its message may be ransformed into a set of practical ethical guidelines. This practical aspect of the Gita’s teaching, its insistence that involvement with the world is an ethically correct function of human behaviour, is the focus of this book. That involvement with the world’s is expressed by the term 'Lokasamgraha'. The term covers a multitude of social and political forms of behaviour and attitudes of mind and is perhaps more central to the meaning the Gita should have for modern man than its traditional other-worldly interpretation.Printed Pages: 488. 102217

Vedic Vision of Consciousness and Reality (History of Science, Philosophy and Culture in Indian Perspective: Volume XII, Part 3)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8187586184; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 23 Cms x 29 Cms 
The volumes of the PROJECT ON THE HISTORY OF SCIENCE, PHILOSOPHY AND CULTURE IN INDIAN CIVILIZATION aim at discovering the main aspects of India's heritage and present them in an interrelated way. These volumes, in spite of their unitary look, recognise the difference between the areas of material civilization and those of ideational culture. The Project is not being executed by a single group of thinkers and writers whore are methodologically uniform or ideologically identical in their commitments. In fact contributions are made by different scholars with different ideological persuasions and methodological approaches. The Project is marked by what may be called 'methodological pluralism'. In spite of its primary historical character, this Project, both in its conceptualization and execution, has been shaped by many scholars drawn from different disciplines. It is for the first time that an endeavour of such a unique and comprehensive character has been undertaken to study critically a major world civilization like India.Vedic Vision of Consciousness and Reality is an attempt at a systematic presentation of the visions of Vedic seers concerning consciousness in relationship to reality. The relevance of this attempt has got enhanced today due to latest discoveries in quantum physics tending to accord some sort of substantiality to consciousness. This is the position Vedic seers held long ago as is evident from the Vedanta. The Vedanta, however, has ignored the Vedic Samhitas on metaphysical issues including consciousness. The present work has come in fulfillment of this lacuna in the tradition of Vedic thought. It has been shown here strictly on the basis of textual evidence how the Vedic seers were involved in the search for consciousness in its purest form coinciding with Reality. The coincidence of the modern science in its latest developments with the Vedic viewpoint in this regard, suggests the necessity of a paradigmatic shift in the human thinking at this juncture from matter to consciousness as the most fundamental reality. These issues have been discussed here from various viewpoints including scientific, philosophical, psychological, theological and epistemological. Printed Pages: 530. 006977

26871 Satya Sundar Sethy
Meaning and Language
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8124608547; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Preface. 1. Two conceptions of meaning. 2. Frege and atomistic theory of meaning. 3. Early Wittgenstein and atomistic theory of meaning. 4. Logical positivistism and atomistic theory of meaning. 5. The untenability of atomistic theory of meaning. 6. Quine and meaning holism. 7. Davidson and meaning holism. 8. Later Wittgenstein and meaning holism. 9. Conclusion: towards an idea of a moderate meaning holism. Bibliography. Index.This volume explores the nature of meaning and the way it functions in language. Philosophers such as Aristotle, Thomas Acquinas, John Locke, Immanuel Kant and David Hume had keen interest in the study of meaning, though it was not central to their philosophical inquiry. But the contemporary philosophy takes a radical twist towards language which is characterized as linguistic turn in philosophy. Meaning and its correct characterization are the foremost concerns of contemporary philosophy.Study of two semantic perspectives - meaning atomism and meaning holism - is the core content of this book and it mainly focuses on contrasting these two perspectives or models of meaning and evaluates them with a view to arrive at an explicit conception of meaning that will correctly reveal the semantics of natural language.In doing so, it vividly discusses the two perspectives of meaning along with the atomistic theory of Gottlob Frege, Wittgenstein’s approach to meaning, logical positivists’ conception of meaning, why meaning atomism fails to capture the uniqueness of meaning, Quinian theory of meaning holism, Davidson’s approach to meaning holism, and Later Wittgenstein’s view on meaning holism, thus covering a wide gamut of the topic.

The Avestan: A Historical and Comparative Grammar (Linguistics)
Chaukhambha Oriental Research Studies/Chaukhambha Publications; Delhi, India; 1979; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
"In Phonology the work presents several tables for illustrating the complicated treatment of several Avestan sounds like a, a, s etc., showing a perfect classification of the situation for the variant treatments. Treatment of sounds are also briefly presented in the reverse order (viz. Avestan-Indo-Iranian-Indo-European) to help beginners and researchers. In Morphology the declensions and conjugations have always been presented in the tables, which include cognotes and explanations, thus avoiding the foot-note system."(vide Preface). "The impact and implication of the work of Dr. Misra will be far-flung, not only on account of its up-to-date up-grading, but for its being the first-ever Historico-Comparative Grammar of Avestan in the real sense of the nomenclature as well, peruse for instance the array of reconstructions, Indo-European, Indo-Iranian and Old Iranian, assembled together and furnished in an adequate supply, thus marshalling with a fuller comparative evidence."Printed Pages: 301 with 1 table (folded). 100697

The Ramayana: A Linguistic Study
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1964; 8121504112; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The Ramayana is always a fascinating study. This Adi Kavya coming from the pen of one of India's greatest poets has exercised a very powerful influence on the life and thought of millions of people of India over the ages. A voluminous work like the Ramayana can certainly be expected to be a good repertory of all kinds of information, historical, social, religious and cultural. So can it be a good index of the language as it obtained in contemporary society. The present study is the first attempt of its kind analysing and critically evaluating the language of the Ramayana in all its varied aspects and, therefore, fulfils a long-felt desideratum. The twenty-four thousand verses of this great epic of India have been given here the most searching treatment and fresh ground broken in more ways than one. The study of the Ramayana synonyms, phonetic tendencies, onomatopoeia, prepositional verbs, usage, etymologies and un-Paninian forms, to mention only a few of the many topics dealt with exhaustively here, is bound to interest students of Sanskrit language in general and Linguistics in particular. The treatment of the subject is scientific throughout. The work is well-documented. Printed Pages: 314. 000427

26880 Satyajit Das
The Age of Stagnation: Why Perpetual Growth is Unattainable and the Global Economy is in Peril
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789385724268; Softcover; New; 
Essential reading for anyone interested in the future of the global economy and their own prospects, The Age of Stagnation incisively explains the problems confronting us, how we’re making those problems worse, and what the real solutions are. For ordinary individuals, the goal of a steady job, a home of one’s own, a comfortable retirement and a good life for our children is receding. In this brilliantly clear-eyed account, Satyajit Das links past, present and future to show that it’s not just unrealistic expectations, but the poor performance of those governing us that are to blame. The strategies and policies deployed to promote economic growth after the Great Recession have failed, not least because such growth cannot continue indefinitely. The solution – structural change – is electorally unpopular and therefore ignored. The Age of Stagnation explains why the ultimate adjustment, whetherstretched out over time or in the form of another sudden crash, will be life-changing.An internationally respected commentator on financial markets, credited with predicting the Global Financial crisis and featured in the 2010 Oscar-winning documentary Inside Job, Satyajit Das is our finest writer about money and the global economy. Informed, impassioned, lively and witty, The Age of Stagnation is the only book you need to understand what the future will bring. 109750

26888 Satyajit Ray; Translated from the Bengali By Gopa Majumdar
Speaking of Film
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0144000261; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 x 20 Cm 
Exactly fifty years ago, in 1955, the release of Pather Panchali heralded the arrival of a master in the world of cinema. Over the next forty years, Satyajit Ray came to be regarded as one of the world’s finest film-makers ever. Today, more than a decade after his death, he continues to be India’s most respected name in international film circles. Apart from his achievements as a director, Ray was also a prolific writer of novels, short stories, and essays on cinema. Speaking of Films brings together some of Ray’s most memorable writings on film and film-making. With the masterly precision and clarity that characterize his films, Ray discusses a wide array of subjects: the structure and language of cinema with special reference to his adaptations of Tagore and Bibhuti Bhushan Bandopadhyay, the appropriate use of background music and dialogue in films, the relationship between a film-maker and a film critic, and important developments in cinema like the advent of sound and colour. He also writes about his own experiences, the challenges of working with rank amateurs, and the innovations called for when making a film in the face of technological, financial and logistical constraints. In the process, Ray provides fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpses of the people who worked with him—the intricacies of getting Chhabi Biswas, who had no ear for music, to play a patron of classical music in Jalsaghar; the incredible memory of the seventy-five-year-old Chunibala Devi, Indir Thakrun of Pather Panchali, and her remarkable attention to details. This first-ever translation of Bishay Chalachitra, a seminal collection of essays on cinema, Speaking of Films retains the lucidity and simplicity that is a hallmark of Ray’s writing, and gives an invaluable insight into the mind of a genius.

Iran's Relations with Pakistan: A Strategic Analysis
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380177656; Hardcover; New; New; 
Both Iran and Pakistan represent two distinct patterns of political systems and navigating their relationship is a very difficult task indeed. However, new developments between them in recent years have created salutary interest among scholars of international relations to focus on their long term relationship. This book focuses on various facets of this relationship in a long term perspective by analyzing them under various phases.The period from 1947 to 2010 has been chosen to analyse this relationship, particularly from an Iranian angle, in the context of different ruling systems such as monarchy and theocracy so as to understand the overall state pattern of Iranian foreign policy. The book traces the Iranian independence in a modern state system, the entire gamut of Iranian foreign policy towards Pakistan followed under a monarchial system, an analysis of the relationship of the Islamic Republic of Iran with Pakistan from 1979 to 1989, an in-depth study that covers the period from 1990 till the current regime to understand the tone and tenor of a modified theocratic foreign policy pursued under various Iranian Presidents and its approach towards Pakistan and finally leading on to a total assessment of the relationship between the two states with some fresh and prognostic thoughts.Printed Pages: 168. 103206
