Reservation and Affirmative Action: Models of Social Integration in India and the United States
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8178298589; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book examines the principles underlining the policies of reservation and affirmative action adopted by two non-homogeneous and multi-ethnic societies—India and the USA. Despite the fact that the governments of both countries have, for over fifty years now, applied these measures to overcome discrimination based on caste and race respectively, the author maintains that there is no comprehensive account of the grounds on which either reservations or affirmative action can be intellectually justified. Addressing the key question—What is being affirmed through affirmative action?—the author seeks the answer along four lines: - What is the religious component of such an affirmation, if any? - Is there a moral principle (or principles) underlying this affirmation? - Is this affirmation being advocated on the basis of ethical principles with which modern liberal thought is imbued? - Is the doctrine of human rights invoked in such an affirmation?

Hinduism and Its Sense of History
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2003; 0195665317; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
It is virtually an axiom in the study of Hindu religion and culture that the Hindus lived in a mythic universe and lacked a sense of history. This book, which is in four parts, examines this proposition in detail. The book begins by considering the emergence of the axiom itself, and goes on to explore the pervasive role this axiom has played in virtually all fields of Indian studies, from historiography to literature studies. The author then catalogues and examines the various responses this alleged absence of a historcal sense on the part of the Hindus has evoked. He concludes, however, that despite its pervasiveness, the assumption cannot be sustained in the light of historical evidence, and contends that the proposition that the Hindus lacked a sense of history is misleading in the extreme and should be abandoned. Convincingly argued, eminently readable, and bearing Sharma's signature style, this compact study will attract scholars and students of Indian religions, compa rative religion, Indian history, and Indic civilization, as well as general readers interested in Hinduism.

Advaita Vedanta: An Introduction
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8120820274; Second Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
The novelty of this book consists of the fact that it introduces the reader to the basic tenets of Advaita Vedanta in three independent but complementary ways: scripturally, rationally and experientially. All the three elements are usually found intertwined in accounts of Advaita Vedanta. They are presented distinctly here in the hope that each perspective will enrich one`s understanding of Advaita Vedanta as a whole and also allow the reader to form his or her own opinion about the relative merits of each approach.Printed Pages: 125. 102126

Decolonizing Indian Studies
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8124608326; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The present Indian academic self-understanding of its history and culture is largely Western in origin. This Western intellectual enterprise, however, went hand in hand with a Western political enterprise, i.e. the colonization of India. This raises the question: To what extent, if any, did the two developments influence each other? It also raises another question: To what extent did West’s cultural presuppositions influence its understanding of Indian civilization?The central epistemological issue which these questions raise is the following: What significance does the fact that the self-understanding of a culture is mediated by that of another culture, over which it was culturally and politically dominant, possess for the votaries of the culture whose self-understanding has thus been mediated in this fashion?This question is not merely of historical but also of contemporary interest, for in an increasingly globalizing world, in which power is unevenly distributed at various levels, the self-understanding of all cultures is likely to be influenced by how they are being presented by other cultures. Furthermore, in such a world, shifting political alliances may generate new intellectual configurations, whose legitimacy may require constant examination. The essays in this book address these and similar issues. Printed Pages: 306. 107443

Hinduism on its Own Terms
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8124608393; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Hinduism, due to its proteanness, is more a way of life rather than a creed. The Hindu tradition recognizes the Vedas as its foundational scripture, Hinduism itself being indigenously known as Vaidika Dharma. Shruti and Smriti are the primary sources of Hinduism, where the former connotes the Vedas that stand for the revealed wisdom and the latter stands for tradition. Smriti texts include law books like the Manusmriti, epics (Itihasa) like the Ramayana and Mahabharata, Puranas, Agamas, Darshana literature (philosophical systems), sometimes Buddhist and Jaina works, other than the numerous religious works in regional languages.Hinduism was challenged by the rise of heterodox movements in the sixth century bce, especially Jainism and Buddhism. Their prolonged encounter and interaction led to the development of the philosophical schools of Hinduism. The advent of Islam and Christianity, and the origin of Sikhism, led to further developments in the Hindu thought system. This book defines and surveys Hinduism, and elaborates its keywords. It consists of two parts. The first part is a general survey of Hinduism. It describes its primary sources of information and the historical trends within its study; the Great Tradition with its basic teaching and practices; the Little Tradition; and modern developments. Many terms which appear in the first part are elaborated in the second part, along with some additional terms.This volume enables readers to grasp the fundamentals of Hinduism.

Goddesses and Women in the Indic Religious Tradition
Brill; Leiden, The Netherlands; 2004; 9004124667; First Edition; Hard Cover; Brand New; 16.5 x 25 Cm 
Goddesses and Women in the Indic Religious Tradition goes beyond the traditional sources that lie at the basis for determining the position of goddesses and women in India. Following the lead of a “hermeneutics of surprise” the book identifies, indeed, surprising new material – and conclusions; for example the analysis of Vedic Srauta ritual. Or by offering surprising conclusions, when the location is obviously one involving women and goddesses, or anthropology discovers that the worship of the Great Goddess temporarily elevates the position of women. Other examples of the effectivity of the “hermeneutics of surprise” are seen when applied to the role of ?akinis, Sakti worship, the Marathi Sant tradition,and to Sa?kara’s commentaries.

Public-Interest Journalism: A Guide for Students
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125056726; Hardcover; New; New; 
In the context of increasing corporatisation of the media, this volume shows why public-interest journalism is crucial to a healthy democracy. It also introduces aspiring journalists to the main methods of the craft. Those methods are sorely needed in the contemporary news media, and will be be a considerable an asset for those interested in public-interest writing or broadcasting. The author begins by setting the context in the English-speaking countries. Pressures on the media to reduce public-interest work stem from governments, from the increasingly corporatised and cartelised news media, and from journalists’ own professional techniques. Furthermore, media organisations in the public and the private sector often cut staff to save money or increase profits, but that makes the news media progressively more dependent on official and corporate sources and press releases. One consequence is that the news media severely reduce their coverage of significant public issues, such as global warming, mass poverty, policy failures, corporate illegalities and corruption. The second chapter focuses on the Indian news media, and includes selected examples from other South Asian countries. It also addresses some of the questions raised by proposed broadcasting regulations in India. The analysis moves on to journalists’ professional self-conceptions, with examples showing among other things that the process whereby issues are selected for coverage goes largely unexamined within the media.Printed Pages: 232. 101855

India's Turn: Understanding the Economic Transformation
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2008; 019569354X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
India’s economic turnaround is now well known. However many questions still remain. When did the economy start turning around and why? What is so special about India’s pattern of economic development and what are the consequences? Are India’s public institutions deteriorating or improving? What is India’s economic future? These essays, both analytical and prescriptive, offer fresh and unconventional answers to questions relating to the turning point of India’s economy, its pattern of economic development, the status of its public institutions, and its economic future. Two broad themes underlie the volume. The first cluster relating to India’s current and future growth analyses the Indian experience in the last three decades. The second dealing with the integration of India into the world economy describes the global trading context and the opportunities and constraints that India faced, and how quickly these change. 028513

The Bodhisattva Path to Unsurpassed Enlightenment: A Complete Translation of the Bodhisattvabhumi
Snow Lion/TBI; New Delhi, India; 2016; 1559394293; Hardcover; New; New; 
Arya Asanga’s Bodhisattvabhumi, or The Stage of a Bodhisattva, is the Mahayana tradition’s most comprehensive manual on the practice and training of bodhisattvas—by the author’s own account, a compilation of the full range of instructions contained in the entire collection of Mahayana sutras. A classic work of the Yogacara school, it has been cherished in Tibet by all the historical Buddhist lineages as a primary source of instruction on bodhisattva ethics, vows, and practices, as well as for its summary of the ultimate goal of the bodhisattva path—supreme enlightenment.Despite the text’s seminal importance in the Tibetan traditions, it has remained unavailable in English except in fragments. Engle’s translation, made from the Sanskrit original with reference to the Tibetan translation and commentaries, will enable English readers to understand more fully and clearly what it means to be a bodhisattva and practitioner of the Mahayana tradition.

2632 Arya Maitreya; Translated By Rosemarie Fuchs
Buddha Nature: The Mahayana Uttaratantra Shastra with Commentary
Snow Lion Publications; Boston, USA; 1559391286; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 Cms x 24 Cms 
All sentient beings without exception have buddha nature?the inherent purity and perfection of the mind, untouched by changing mental states. Thus there is neither any reason for conceit in deeming oneself better than others nor any reason for self-contempt, thinking of oneself as inferior and unable to reach enlightenment. This seeing is obscured by veils which are removable and do not touch the inherent purity and perfection of the nature of the mind as such. The Mahayana Uttaratantra Shastra, one of the Five Treatises said to have been dictated to Asanga by the Bodhisattva Maitreya, presents the Buddha's definitive teachings on how we should understand this ground of enlightenment and clarifies the nature and qualities of buddhahood. Jamgön Kongtrül Lodro Thaye (1813?1899), the profoundly learned and realized master who compiled what are known as the "Five Great Treasures," wrote the outstanding commentary to the Mahayana Uttaratantra Shastra translated here. Called The Unassailable Lion's Roar, it presents Maitreya's text as a background for the Mahamudra teachings in a way that is especially clear and easy to understand. Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche provided the annotations and the explanations on which the present translation is based. A renowned scholar and highly accomplished yogi, he is a living example of the ongoing tradition of oral transmission. He first visited the West in 1977 at the request of H.H. the Sixteenth Karmapa. Rosemarie Fuchs has been a student of Khen Rinpoche since 1978, and this translation was done upon his advice. Printed Pages: 416. 037313

2633 Aryaman Dalmia
Graham Buffett and Me
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380942254; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
This book outlines with real-world examples the basic tenets of investing, as enunciated by Benjamin Graham, the father of scientific investing. It further analyses how his master student Warren Buffett has navigated through the complexities of the investment world by following a few simple but extremely effective guidelines and become one of the three richest men in the world. It demonstrates how detailed analysis, independent thinking, and discipline can reap rewards and how one should control emotions and ignore market sentiment. It deals with examples from the Indian markets and goes through case studies of extraordinarily successful investors like Ashish Dhawan, founder of Chrys Capital; Madhav Dhar, former head of Emerging Markets at Morgan Stanley; Chaitanya Dalmia, whose own in-house performance beats that of most investment funds; and Sanjay Bakshi, who teaches value investing and runs an India-specific hedge fund. These examples demonstrate how the investors have followed Graham's and Buffett's approaches and made extraordinary profits from rational thought in a seemingly irrational world.Printed Pages: 126. 104666

The Red Stamp
Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789382711193; Softcover; New; 
The book, set against the backdrop of the onset of a civil war, is the story of a young boy, Keev, who discovers the vagaries and purpose of life in the most unexpected of situations. The protagonists of the book must overcome the tussle between their dangerous circumstances and their instinctive judgment to come out unscathed during the trials that they are faced with. As the forces on either side move in for what they determine to be the final debilitating offensive to bring the war to a close, they are both caught up in a bizarre swap of positions. The commander of the Alliance and the rebels, Cantilly and Bilal respectively, recognize this but are also resigned to it. The novel communicates the repercussions of neo-colonialist conflicts on the quotidian intellect of an individual and society, and its futility. Printed Pages: 268. 107229

The Regional Roots of Developmental Politics in India: A Divided Leviathan
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0195685113; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book argues that the success or failure of India as a developmental state cannot be attributed to policies of the central government alone. They are the combined products of central–local interactions and political choices made by the regional elites. Regional elites insert their agendas into the central framework—modifying and circumventing policy. The author re-evaluates national developmental trajectories differently and stresses the need to evolve a disaggregated, multilevel framework to understand economic policy, development, and globalization. Through in-depth analyses of Gujarat, West Bengal, and Tamil Nadu, the author presents two main arguments: sub-national developmental states can co-exist with the overarching national state and, these sub-national states are the products of struggle with a dominant centre, and shaped by regional political competition. Globalization makes these interventions even more crucial as local actors modify and reorder global priorities for regional ends. The author tests her thesis by studying four other large nation-states—China, Brazil, the former Soviet Union and democratic Russia. She demonstrates that in each of these countries, regional elites interact with central rulers and significantly influence national policy. 019692

Islam Restructuring Theology
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789380828640; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
The author argues forcefully, supported ably by citations from the scriptures as well as their interpretation by scholars, how Islam has by and large been misinterpreted as a code of regression. From explaining how banking is allowed by the religion to the redundancy of the burqah, from providing the real definition of kafir to enumerating the rights of married and divorced partners in a couple, from putting jihad in the correct perspective to questioning the authenticity of any story that goes in the name of Hadith… Asghar Ali Engineer offers an issue-by-issue rebuttal of the uneducated notion that Muslims are an obscurantist lot. Of course, he has no kind words for the ulema that earn the faith a bad name; he might well have stuck his neck out to invite their ire by lambasting their tendency to interpret the Qur'an in the most unlikely, yet convenient, manner that suits a patriarchal, male chauvinist and sectarian mindset. Neither Allah nor His Prophet, the author insists, would approve of the injustice a motley group of monopolyists in the faith have unleashed on humanity. For all practical purposes, Islam is as modern as it gets.Printed Pages: 236. 104827

Rational Approach to Islam
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8121207258; Hardcover; New; New; 
There are gross misunderstandings about Islam among Muslims as well as non-Muslims. There are several stereotypes about Islam which have got wide currency. Some orthodox Muslims refuse to change, while standing rigidly by theology, developed by the Ulema of the early period. Many extremists organisations among Muslims are giving Currency to rude ideas about Islam which are not in keeping with the real Teaching of Islam. Sometimes the media also misrepresents Islam and projects it as if it stands for Violence and suppression of human rights.Dr. Asghar Ali Engineer, an internationally known scholar of Islam approaches Islam rationally and projects Islamic teachings in its right spirit. He has taken up several issues in his Essays on Islam, some of which have been collected in this volume. He rationally and objectively deals with various issues, which are of contemporary significance. Whatever he writes, he writes with force of his scholarship. In this volume he deals with issues like interfaith approach of Islam, Islam and Gender justice, Islamic ethics, meaning of Prayer in Islam, core teaching of Islam, Islam and concept of jihad, etc., which are all highly relevant issues. This book will help scholars as well as lay readers to capture the real spirit of Islam and its teachings. It will help dispel misconceptions about Islam. The Author has also argued forcefully that Islam is far from being an anti-diluvion Religion and is as modern as any system of thought could be.Printed Pages: 300. 106026

Islam: Misgivings and History
Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 9789380828008; Softcover; New; 
Islam is often misunderstood because of certain fundamentals who have turned jihad into a misnomer and lead the youth astray. This book digs the truth out of the closet and clears the haze off the myths which have been passed off as Holy Preachings. The articles reflect the author's impeccable understanding of Islam and Qur’anic teachings. Sensitive issues like gender and feminism along with other commonly debated theories on science, corporal punishment, Hindutva, cow slaughter and violence have been astutely dealt with.Ali discourses on several disputed issues and quotes extensively from Qur’an. He unravels the mystery of the “Missing Verse” in whose guises people take undue liberties and also demystifies the word kafir. He refutes those who preach that science and Islam are oxymorons and unveils the hidden similarities between the two. He gives even arguments on the shortcomings of people in interpreting them. He dives into the unfathomable and rediscovers the origin of Islam. This Compilation is a must-read for all those who want to understand the preachings of the religion which has for long been unjustly associated with fanaticism. Printed Pages: 238. 107258

Development, Decentralisation and Democracy: Essays for M.A. Oommen
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2015; 812505877X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Bringing together essays critical in contemporary development discourse, this volume addresses the broad themes of development as freedom, equality and human ascent within the framework of democracy and decentralised governance. The first seven essays interrogate and critique the ideas of democracy, development and its translation into the pursuit of growth that is market driven and measured exclusively in terms of GNP. They search for possible, more inclusive reconceptualisations of ‘development’. The other seven look at issues like primary education, food security, metropolitan finance, caste and gender parity, technology as freedom, decentralisation and innovation in governance in particular, the Kerala model of development, Latin American experiments in democracy and China’s growth story-all of which offer valuable comparisons and lessons for India and the world. Eclectic in their range of concerns, perspectives and insights, the common thread binding the essays is the accent on human development and social inclusion-a fitting tribute to developmental economist Professor M. A. Oommen whose influential writings and teachings reflect a lifelong commitment to equity.With contributions by well known economists from India and abroad, this volume will be useful for students and scholars of economics and development studies, finance, public policy, governance and sociology.Printed Pages: 376. 102269

D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8124608334; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Manu-Smriti is one of the most coveted and popular works of ancient India. It comprises codes that are needed for an ideal, peaceful and harmonious society. The entire Manu-Smriti revolves around the Vedic concept of rita or dharma. The concepts of purusharthas, ashramas and varnas have their roots in dharma. These concepts were meant to make the life of every member of the society fruitful and purposeful. The codes prescribed by Manu became an authority on ancient laws and were put in practice. The scholars working in different fields of sociology, religion, philosophy, ethics, ancient laws and politics are bound to consult Manu-Smriti for some reason or the other.The present book is an effort to bring together all scattered materials related to different topics contained in Manu-Smriti. The book also aims to diffuse many of the doubts related to certain topics contained in Manu-Smriti, for example, status of brahmana, shudra and woman. The analysis of topics such as human values, raja-dharma and Manu’s codes on crime and punishment has been presented in this book in a lucid style. All these topics bear great relevance even in modern times. The volume tries to maintain the originality of Manu’s concepts through rational and honest approach. The book also includes few modern subjects like economics, ecosystem management and biodiversity conservation that have been dealt by Manu in a scientific manner.This book will benefit all those who want to know about the rules and practices that governed our ancient history, pertaining to all the aspects of human life.

Second Language Learning in a Foreign Language Environment: A Pragma-Discoursal Account
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8192047598; Softcover; New; 
The aspects of written discourse addressed in this collection of nine papers are represented in terms of the defining informational constraints on their standard use, and the associated pragma-discoursal impact on the message. Each of the first seven papers individually addresses a core feature of written discourse of challenge to the high–intermediate English as a Foreign Language learner, by examining how s/he tackles the very particular information-packaging directives that govern it. These seven papers cover a range of such features, from the micro- to the macro-level, including, reference framing, the marking of time and temporal passage, key intersentential relations and discoursal developments, and the signaling of genre. The eighth paper attempts a more general assessment of the information-design challenge that these facets of composing collectively constitute, and the last paper identifies, and accounts for, a common learning strategy that the typical foreign language context gives rise to. As a whole, the collection is a comprehensive but also deeply probing, first-of-its-kind pragma-discoursal study of how second-language writing is learned in a foreign language environment.

The Magic Web and Other Stories: Ashapurna Debi on the Widow and Her World
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125047085; Softcover; New; 
The Magic Web and Other Stories is a collection of eighteen of Ashapurna Debi’s short stories on the lives of widows. One of the most prolific creative writers in Indian literature, Ashapurna Debi is known for her incisive chronicles of the Bengali middle-class. With women as her chosen subjects, her stories voice suppressed histories of intimate lives, and probe into the familial and social dynamics of relationships analysing the play of gender, caste and class. Through these stories, we are introduced to ritual-oriented drudges and gossip-mongering women, and to unbecoming women who refuse to hear the voice of everyday morality and silence the promptings of received values. One finds in the stories the rational, sensible, modern, urban gentleman all but merely the camouflaged victims of patriarchy. There are also tales where traces of deeply entrenched desires, expressed through gestures and silences, signify the buried yet pulsating emotions in the lives of women.Printed Pages: 244. 101877

2677 Ashapurna Debi; Translated By Indira Chowdhury
The First Promise
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2009; 812503790X; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
The First Promise is a translation of Ashapurna Debi’s novel, Pratham Pratisruti , originally published in Bengali in 1964. Celebrated as one of the most popular and path-breaking novels of its time, it has received continual critical acclaim: the Rabindra Puraskar (the Tagore Prize) in 1966 and the Bharitiya Jnanpith, India’s highest literary award, in 1977. Spanning the late eighteenth and early twentieth centuries, Ashapurna tells the story of the struggles and efforts of women in nineteenth-century, colonial Bengal in a deceptively easy and conversational style. The charming eight-year old heroine, Satyabati is a child bride who leaves her husband’s village for Calcutta, the capital of British India where she is caught in the social dynamics of women’s education, social reform agendas, modern medicine and urban entertainment. As she makes her way through this complex maze, making sense of the rapidly changing world around her, Satyabati nurtures hopes and aspirations for her daughter. But the promises held out by modernity turn out to be empty, instigating Satyabati to break away from her inherited world and initiate a quest that takes her to the very heart of tradition. Indira Chowdhury’s confident translation, with its conscious choice of Indian English equivalents over British and American colloquialisms, carries across the language divide the flavour of Ashapurna’s unique idiomatic style. This edition also includes the translator’s reflections on the process of translation itself. Printed Pages: 600. 031640

Islam Woman and Gender Justice
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2001; 812120755X; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Muslim Women in India Face a host of problems.

2689 Ashis Nandy in Conversation with Ramin Jahanbegloo
Talking India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0195678982; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Multifaceted thinker and prolific author, Ashis Nandy is considered to be one of India’s leading intellectuals. For someone trained as a clinical psychologist and later as a sociologist, he continues to capture the imagination of the reading public and those interested in ideas, for his fertile mind, myriad and unpredictable ways of thinking and the essential humanism which all his writings signify. This book is a series of comprehensive interviews conducted by Ramin Jahanbegloo at Teheran and organized over six sessions. The interviewer questions Nandy within the context of his own ‘Indian-ness’ as also his affinity (and criticisms) for things Indian: whether it be thought, religion or pluralistic tendencies. The essence of Ashis Nandy and his perspectives on a wide range of things include political philosophy, democracy, India and Pakistan, globalization, Indian culture and tradition, and Gandhi, are all revealed. Throughout the interview, Nandy brings to bear his formidable intellect on these questions, which is always challenging and engaging. Printed Pages: 160. 015914

2690 Ashis Nandy; Introduction By Imtiaz Ahmed
A Very Popular Exile: An Omnibus Comprising 'The Tao of Cricket'; 'An Ambiguous Journey to City'; Traditions, Tyranny, and Utopias'
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2010; 0195693221; First Paperback Edition; Paperback; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This is a collection of three significant works of Ashis Nandy - The Tao of Cricket, An Ambiguous Journey to the City, and Traditions, Tyranny, and Utopias. In The Tao of Cricket, Nandy shows how a game once identified with the British Empire and a preserve of the British gentry - is now more South Asian than English. He examines the sneaking entry of the modern urban industrial ethic and mass culture into a game that used to thrive on its ability to be a living critique of modern life. Through the story of Indian cricket, he attempts a systematic analysis of world-views, ideologies, cultural exchanges, and political choices. An Ambiguous Journey to the City - concerned with the apparently territorial journey between the village and the city - captures some of the core fantasies and anxieties of Indian civilization over the past century. Nandy argues that the decline of the village from the creative imagination of Indians in recent decades has altered the meaning of this journey drastically, and that the true potentialities of Indian cosmopoloitanism cannot be realized without renegotiating the myth of the village. Traditions, Tyranny, and Utopias is a collection of essays on the modern West and its cultural and psychological impact on the East. Nandy analyses, brilliantly and insightfully, aspects of East-West relationship - from Western visions, which have displaced all other ideals of a good society, to Western histories that have displaced all other posts of the East. Yet, the apparently defeated have, through the likes Gandhi and Senghor, tried to subvert the West's construction of the rest and to ensure cultural survival and on open-ended future. This volume is essential reading for social scientists, policymakers, activists and anyone interested in the way Indian politics and culture are now enmeshed with a global struggle to protect human dignity and democratic values. This is the third omnibus edition of Ashis Nandy's writings, the first two being Exiled at Home and Return from Exile. 033872

Body Language: What Words don't Reveal
Goodwill Publishing House; New Delhi, India; 8172453299; Softcover; New; 
Though we are often not cognisant of the signals that our body sends out to other people, yet unconsciously we are able to decode the body language of others. We rely on our intuitive feelings to interpret and read between the lines of what the other person is saying to us.Movement is also a part of body language. All movements such as that of our head, our legs, our feet and various other body parts along with facial expressions and our gestures, combine to make our body language harmonious.Our face is the most visually expressive part of our body. There are six universal facial expressions - happiness, sadness, surprise, fear, anger and distrust.Sending out good and positive body language is like having two voices showering praises on you. But how does one go about getting better body language?The reason that body language is given such a high reliability value might be due to the fact that a lot of non-verbal behaviour that we pickup is hereditary, or is learnt by us at a very young age. Without necessarily learning it, we can convey our feelings of love, hatred, fear, enjoyment, boredom, sadness and other primary human feelings to other people. Printed Pages: 144. 108120

their preservation and protection before they disappear forever. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is one of the four provinces of Pakistan, located in the northwestern region of the country. It was formerly known as North-West Frontier Province (NWFP) and commonly called Sarhad, which in Urdu means “frontier.” Its provincial capital and largest city is Peshawar, followed by Mardan. It shares borders with the Federally Administered Tribal Areas to the west; Gilgit–Baltistan to the northeast; Azad Kashmir, Islamabad and Punjab to the east and southeast. The NWFP was later incorporated as a part of Pakistan through a referendum. After its incorporation, the aspiration of provincial autonomy still loomed large on the minds of the elites in this region who had almost reconciled to the fact that an independent Pushtunistan1 consisting of the Pushtun dominated area is virtually impossible This work is essentially useful for scholars researchers social activists academics government functionaries and the general reader alike.
