27206 Shandana Minhas
Tunnel Vision
IndiaInk/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8186939377; Softcover; New; 
Ayesha Siddiqui, 31 and independent, has just proposed to the man she loves. His silence makes her crash through the windshield of her car. In her comatose state, Ayesha floats between Time Past and Time Present. The narrative meanders through Ayesha's life, throwing up startling facts about her immediate family, relatives and friends. It brings to the fore her anguish, her love-hate relationship with her mother and her failed relationships with men, as she struggles to survive and build a career and an identity in a male-dominated society. The story is set against the backdrop of Karachi - a city where the past, present and future battle it out on billboards, TV and the backs of rickshaws. The throes of flux, fluidity and transition being witnessed by the country provide a parallel to Ayesha's own angst. Printed Pages: 288. 108503

27207 Shankar Acharya
India After the Global Crisis
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125045090; Hardcover; New; New; 
India after the Global Crisis assesses India’s resilience in the face of the global financial crisis but then shows how the global crisis and our domestic policy failures have taken a toll on India’s economic performance: growth has slowed significantly, inflation has remained high, the external current account deficit has more than doubled, and the rate of domestic investment has fallen. Drawing upon four decades of experience in the World Bank, the Central Government, academia and India Inc., Shankar Acharya probes deep into the daunting challenges that lie ahead for India. This volume is written against the backdrop of renewed global economic turmoil—stalled economic revival in 2011, mounting problems of sovereign fiscal stress and banking fragility in Europe and US—and clear signs of economic slowdown amid political weakness and indecision in India. The author also outlines the priorities that the government must focus on to overcome these challenges, and debunks several myths that weaken current policies.Printed Pages: 240. 101817

Yogi Impressions; Mumbai, India; 8188479012; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 8.5 x 5.5 Inches 
As a striving entrepreneur, Shannon Duncan had always thought that money and success would bring him happiness. But when he retired a multimillionaire before the age of thirty and could buy almost any possession or experience he wanted, he realized that the source of happiness was definitely elsewhere. Through a series of realizations, brought about by self-exploration and study, Duncan realized that what he was really searching for was to feel good about himself, and thus feel safe and peaceful in the world. Once he gained the opportunity to realize what wouldn't bring him peace, he began to understand that peace was always within him, underneath the turmoil, if only he would surrender enough to see it. Duncan’s book, 'Present Moment Awareness', is garnering early praise for its practical, down-to-earth advice for living in the present. Filled with easy, accessible anecdotes and exercises, 'Present Moment Awareness' shows readers how they can drop their emotional baggage, calm their worries about the future, and start enjoying the peace and happiness that can only be found in the present moment. Through a series of simple but enlightening concepts, Duncan shows how we can discover the true causes of our stress and discontent, transform our emotions from rulers into advisors, and start enjoying our lives, right here and now.

Waging: A Silent War
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789380828718; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
"Waging a Silent War" covers the heroic story of a family caught up in the grip of revolutionary fevour that overtakes pre independent India in the 1940s. The story, a throwback to the past, is narrated by members of the Talukdar family, each episode dealt with by one of them, the prime discovery having been unfolded by the surviving matriarch, Julie Talukdar, who makes a final trip to the Ballygunj ancestral home along with her three children, Tanu Tara and Abhi, before it is put up for sale.A Virtual Pandora's box opens up when they discover the 'shinduk', an iron box, which lies abandoned in the house with its mysterious contents. It is an eye opener for the three: from its contents - sepia tinted letters, notes and a diary whose pages are rusted with age - they discover an astonishing world, a bygone era, where loyalty, treachery, courage, war and romance all take centre stage.Printed Pages: 240. 104518

Satyadev Dubey: A Fifty-year Journey Through Theatre
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 8189738992; Hardcover; New; New; 
Satyadev Dubey: A Life Lived Through Theatre documents the work of Satyadev Dubey—director, actor, teacher and playwright. Dubey has been passionately involved in theatre full time since the early sixties. Along with the late Shyamanand Jalan in Kolkata and Rajinder Paul, publisher-printer of the theatre magazine Enact in Delhi, Dubey was responsible for the great exchange of plays that happened between Hindi, Bengali, Kannada and Marathi theatre in the sixties and seventies. Amongst the playwrights who came to national recognition during this energetic exchange were Vijay Tendulkar, Mohan Rakesh, Badal Sircar and Girish Karnad.This book brings together essays, interviews and reviews by playwrights, actors and theatre critics as well as a selection from amongst Dubey’s prolific output of articles in the Mumbai press. It brings to light the phases of Dubey’s work, his style and method of direction, his system for actor training, the furious debates about theatre and the freedom of expression that he was involved with, the manner in which he managed his economics without ever applying for government or corporate funding to put on the boards over a hundred plays in a career spanning over 50 years.Along the way, the book reveals what a theatre practitioner must give up when he commits his life to doing non-mainstream, non-spectacular plays in a theatre world that was once led by idealism but has since moved on to a more pragmatic approach to life and work. It also reveals the creative energy that drives Satyadev Dubey, propelling him to continue finding ways to do theatre, regardless of the circumstances.Printed Pages: 312 with 35 b/w photographs. 106610

Searching for Non-Western Roots of Conflict Resolution Discourses, Norms, and Case Studies
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904718; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Conflict resolution, as a defined field of study, has been facing stiff challenges in the post Cold War world. The multipolar setting of the globalised world with rising incidence of intra-state conflicts and growing convergence between security and development issues have generated fresh as well as severely mutated old challenges which most often do not fit well within traditional theoretical explanatory categories evolved within Peace and Conflict Studies. This disjunction is often generated by the fact that the modern conflict zones are mostly located in the developing and underdeveloped parts of the global South whereas the discourses of Conflict resolution continue to be largely western in origin and focus. Dissatisfaction with this process led to the search for alternative values in non-western discourses either philosophical such as Buddhism, or Gandhian methodology of peaceful satyagraha. Attempts made by Peace and Conflict resolution theorists to borrow and integrate non-western concepts within the paradigm, however important, are but small steps which indicate the growing complexities associated with the process as well as academic analyses and discussions related to conflict resolution. More micro-level studies of attempts towards conflict resolution from primarily non-western conflict zones as well as alternative theorisations about no-western norms(if any) and discourses would be necessary to ascertain whether a non-western alternative paradigm for conflict resolution is possible, desirable, and whether it could be integrated and absorbed successfully within the already established theoretical models of conflict. The present edited volume represents some of these viewpoints. It includes nine essays which try to look into the process of conflict resolution from various angles, the primary aim being to discover whether it could be done through non-western prism and would be of interest to both practitioners and academics and, ofcourse, students.Printed Pages: 230. 104306

Reappraising India's Look East Policy: Time for a Human Security Oriented Agenda
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380502663; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
India’s expanding links with the countries located in Southeast Asia and East Asia along with her burgeoning influence in the Asia-Pacific and Indian Ocean zones since the 1990s have come under the collective analytical framework of ‘Look East Policy,’ and have been scrutinized and analyzed from every possible scholarly dimension over the years. The purpose of this paper is to attempt a reappraisal of India’s Look East as it has evolved through these various twists and turns trying to find out whether it has developed a degree of strategic coherence and whether it would be appropriate to recast and project it within an alternative ‘human security’ oriented paradigm.Printed Pages: 30. 104377

Issues and Perspective in the Securitisation Process: Perceptionsfrom the India and Europe
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789381904091; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The present volume of essays has come out of an international conference organised by the Institute of Foreign Policy Studies (IFPS), University of Calcutta, as a part of its United Nations Academic Programme (UNAI) on Peace and Conflict Studies. As a part of the UNAI initiative, the IFPS held a one day international conference on January 19, 2012, on the theme Issues and Perspectives in the Securitisation Process: Perceptions from India and Europe for research scholars from the IFPS and the University of Warsaw. The theme was found to be relevant and appropriate as a part of the UNAI initiative particularly because the IFPS is engaged in the task of acting as the global hub for Peace and Conflict studies as a part of the UNAI initiative. In the essays compiled in this volume, the contributors have tried to grapple with the securitisation process and its impact, by looking at various aspects of both traditional and non-traditional security issues.Printed Pages: 120. 104343

KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789380502885; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
In the light of India emerging as a leader in the IT and communication fields, efforts must be made to optimally exploit available expertise to develop an appropriate C4I2SR system with innovative technology to the Indian Army.

It offers practically implementable solutions and merits cognizance at appropriate levels for its incorporation in the contemporary transformational matrix.

27252 Shanti Bhushan
Courting Destiny: A Memori
Penguin/Viking; New Delhi, India; 2008; 067008218X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
"Born in 1925, Shanti Bhushan was witness to the formative years of the Indian republic. Courting Destiny traces the remarkable story of his life—the family’s origins in the town of Bijnor in the United Provinces, the experience of growing up in a joint family in Allahabad, initial encounters with the law when the Constitution of India was being framed, the distinguished career as a lawyer and law minister, culminating in the campaign for judicial accountability. These memoirs provide a participant’s account of some of the most interesting and seminal cases that laid the foundations of India’s constitutional history. They include the Keshav Singh case of 1964 which led to the first standoff between the executive and the judiciary; Indira Gandhi’s election case which unseated her as prime minister, leading to the imposition of the Emergency; the habeas corpus case where the Supreme Court declared that during an emergency there is no right to life or liberty and hence no recourse against illegal detention; and the parliament attack case in which the Supreme Court, while acquitting Shaukat Guru of all charges of conspiracy, convicted him on a charge for which he was never accused. Together, they offer a broad perspective of the evolution of Indian law and the interpretation of the Constitution. Courting Destiny affords us a glimpse of the many fundamental and far-reaching political and constitutional changes that took place in the decades following independence. The descriptions of Shanti Bhushan’s brief involvement in party politics and his time as law minister in the post-Emergency Janata government make for a fascinating insider’s account of an important phase of the nation’s life. In this narration of the author’s life and work, the personal, the professional and the public unfold seamlessly, never at the cost of one or the other. Written in a direct and engaging style, laced with gentle humour, Courting Destiny will appeal to all those interested in India’s legal, constitutional and political history. At a time when both the Bar and the Bench are under a cloud, the illustrious sixty-year career of Shanti Bhushan will be a source of inspiration for young advocates.

27256 Shanti Kumar
Gandhi Meets Primetime: Globalization and Nationalism in Indian Television
University of Illinois Press; Urbana and Chicago, USA; 2006; 0252072448; First Edition; Paperback; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Shanti Kumar's Ghandi Meets Primetime examines how cultural imaginations of national identity have been transformed by the rapid growth of satellite and cable television in postcolonial India. To evaluate the growing influence of foreign and domestic satellite and cable channels since 1991, the book considers a wide range of materials including contemporary television programming, historical archives, legal documents, policy statements, academic writings and journalistic accounts. Kumar argues that India's hybrid national identity is manifested in the discourses found in this variety of empirical sources. He deconstructs representations of Mahatma Gandhi as the Father of the Nation on the state-sponsored network Doordarshan and those found on Rupert Murdoch's STAR TV network. The book closely analyzes print advertisements to trace the changing status of the television set as a cultural commodity in postcolonial India and examines publicity brochures, promotional materials and programming schedules of Indian-language networks to outline the role of vernacular media in the discourse of electronic capitalism. The empirical evidence is illuminated by theoretical analyses that combine diverse approaches such as cultural studies, poststructuralism and postcolonial criticism.

Though the scholars in the country have tried to trace the genesis of the Ramayana from the Vedic and post-Vedic literature, with the fragments of the story of Rama found scattered in these texts, but the most important job in the composition of the story of Rama was done by the sage Valmiki, who happened to be the foremost of the Indian Sanskrit poets. He composed the work on the basis of the brief of Rama's story provided to him by the sage Narada, as well as the fragments of the story collected by him with the extensive travelling of the country which immensely added to its popularity with the masses. After the sage Valmiki, several subsequent poets brought out Ramayana texts in Sanskrit as well as in the regional languages. The work composed by Madhava Kandali in Assamese language happens to be one of the earliest works of medieval period, having been composed in the fourteenth century AD. The Ramayana of Krttivasa was composed in the fifteenth century, while the Ramacaritamanasa by Tulasidasa in the sixteenth century AD. The work of Madhava Kandali was composed on the basis of the Valmiki Ramayana, though some variations are noticed here and there. The present work is an English translation of the Madhava Kandali Ramayana in Assamese. Printed Pages: 600. 022163

Surya and Sun Cult: In Indian Art, Literature and Thought
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1995; 8173050562; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 18 x 25 Cm 
The Sun has been illumining it and has impressed not only the human race but also all other creatures. His name occurs in the records of the Kassites and Mitanni but in the Indian context, he enjoys an important position in the Vedic as well as the post-Vedic literature. In the epics some of the rulers like Dasaratha, Rama and Others claimed their origin to the Sun. The Buddhist and Jain literature too provided him an important place in their respective religious treatises. In the Puranas however, he became a an important cult- god and not only regular system of his worship is found prescribed therein, but also his images were required to be lodged in exclusive shrines dedicated to the deity. The Epics and the Puranic texts present Surya in human form and also define the Family of Surya as well his progeny. The wife of Surya is described as Sanjna (or awakening), daughter of Visvakarman, besides Chaya (shadowy; and Revanta and Sani as his sons Surya is also conceived as a great healer and quite generous to his devotees. He is the prominent leader of the entire solar system and the Navagrahas, the panels of which are frequently found in the Brahmanical shrines. He is also believed to be the controller of time, and the maker of days and nights. The twelve Adityas are supposed to represent the twelve months of the year. The present work aims at providing glimpses of the various aspect of the Sun- god and the different angles from which he has been viewed by the ancient sages, the artists, the thinkers besides those involved in the study of the sciences of astrology, Astronomy and the connected subjects.

Varaha: In Indian Art, Culture and Literature
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1993; 8173050309; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 18 x 25 Cm 
In the Indian context, the animal, though occasionally appears in the Vedic and post-vedic literature, but its reverence achieved a great boost after its association with the incarnation of Visnu, a strong and powerful Brahmanical god. In this form the boar, it is stated, rescued the earth-goddess submerged under the deep sea-waters. The reasons for the drowning of the earth have been quite convincingly given in the texts. The Mahabharata is quite vocal in this regard, wherein, it is stated that the earth was submerged in water because of its over population. "The salient features of the episode are (i) the Deluge, (ii) the Earth, (iii) the Demon Hiranyaksa, besides the boar. With the passage of time the theme of the rescue of the earth became symbolical with the rulers of the country, who after having conquered a territory or overthrowing the foreign domination, equated the event with the rescue of the earth by the boar incarnation of Visnu. Such events were celebrated by erecting an image or a temple of the god. "The present work aims at highlighting the various aspects of Varaha form of Visnu, in the background of the literary as well as the archaeological evidence, available in the country.

Parimal Publications; Delhi, India; 2008; 8171103162; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
The story of Rama has been dominating the Indian religious scene from the time immemorial. The complete story of the Ramayana was hardly popular with the masses in complete form till it was composed by the sage Valmiki in a book form. The Ramayana which is known as the Adi-kavya or the first ornate poem according to the indigenous estimation is ascribed to the sage Valmiki, the Adikavi or the first author of the ornate poetry. The Ramayana deserves to be called as the Adikavya because of the characteristics of the ornate poetry, such as the description of nature and the presence of the figures of speech, both of words and the sense are quite auspicious. A number of Ramayanas were composed in different parts of the country. The regional Ramayanas were composed not only in the north but also in the south, in Tamil, Telugu and Kannada languages. Of these regional works, the Kamba Ramayana which was composed by Maharshi Kamban, possibly was the earliest. The Kamba Ramayana comprises of six kandas instead of seven of the Valmiki Ramayana.Printed Pages: 1001. 100608

Hanuman: In Art, Culture, Thought and Literature
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1995; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Ever since the dawn of civilization in the country, several deities emerged on the Indian religious scene, while some of them vanished into oblivion as suddenly as they had mushroomed, sone of them left and indelible impression in the minds of the people and are adored in one form or the other even during the modern times. Hanuman happens to be one such deity. Though scholars have tried to trace the presence of Hanuman in the Vedic literature in the form of Vrsakapi, the Braham Purana, how-ever, recognises Vrsakapi to be none else than Hanuman himself. Hanuman, as such however, was introducted by Valmiki for the first time in the Ramayana where initially he had an insignificant role as a minister of Sugriva. His personality indeed got a great boost soon after his coming in contact with Rama and Lakshmana, the Ayodhya princes. In fact most of the episodes in the Kiskindha, Sundara and Yuddha Kandas of the Ramayana hover round Hanuman. There, he is presented as an excellent warrior, a devoted servant, a diplomat par excellence, most intelligent person and the one, who possessing all the virtues, could render selfless service to one and all. He never had any aspirations of his own and his entire performance in the epic was dedicated for the service of others. He could perform such heroic deeds, which none else even Rama and Laksmana could do.Printed Pages: 604. 102065

Indian Monoliths
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1992; Hardcover; New; New; 
One of the glorious aspects of the Ancient Indian art and Architecture had been the creation of Monoliths which were hewn out of solid rocks. Though the presence of these monoliths could be traced in the Vedic and later Vedic texts, but no specimens beyond the Mauryan period could be traced. The Indra Sabha of Chandragupta Maurya at Kumrahar near Patna was credited with having eighty-two monolithic pillars with the glazed polish. However, with Asoka's ascending to the throne of Magadha, the art of chiselling in India received a great boost. During his times a number of monolithic pillars with capitals including those at Sanchi and Sarnath were created. The pillars of the Mauryan period were circular in their design but during the subsequent period the stress on circular monoliths was almost abandoned. In their place, the square, hexagonal, or octagonal monolithic pillars were patronised. In centuries that followed the artist besides continuing the activity of monolithic pillars, also started the chiselling of the monolithic cave stupas, which served the cause of Buddhism, followed by the creation of monolithic temples, like those at Ellora, Mahabalipuram and Masrur (Kangra). These Monoliths have their own importance in the Indian Art and Architecture. The present work deals with the subject in detail, highlighting the salient features of the Indian monoliths.Printed Pages: 204. 102503

Deities in Terracotta Art: From Earliest Times to Late Medieval Period (Indian Gods and Goddesses), Vol. V
B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8176466379; Hardcover; New; New; 
Terracotta Art has attracted the mankind from the time immemorial. Be it the household or child`s play cart it dominated the human society impressively. A school of thought treated it to be the poor-man`s art but it was patronised in fact by the higher strata of society as well, While with the poor it was like the lifeline who used it for cooking and other domestic purposes besides making the toys for their children and more often than not as the deities for adoration, the most popular among them being the Mother Goddess. Such figurines have been found in abundance in the pre-historic sites of Harappa and Mohenjodaro and they continued during the historical period as well. Gradually the number of deities in Terracotta Art went on increasing and the sites like Bhumra, Ahichchhatra, Rajghat, Mathura etc. of the historical period produced a large number of deities. Interestingly the types of such deities in the earlier period was restricted to only a few deities like Siva. Mother Goddess, the sun or some composite forms but reaching the historical period their number was multiplied. Even those figures of the historical period which included the goddesses like MahisasuramardinI, Sarasvatl, Durga and others started attracting the provisions of the Silp-Sastras in making of the terracotta figurines. Though there had been a number of books on Terracotta Art in India but a work exclusively dealing with the Indian deities represented in Terracotta Art are not quite common. In the present book an effort has been made to project the deities so commonly found from the earliest times in the Indian Terracotta Art, and it is hoped that the readers will find it interesting.

The genesis of the Buddhist art in India, is traceable in the stone art of Bharhut dating back to the second century B.C. followed by the art of the Buddhist stupa at Sanchi, the art of Mathura and Amaravati dating back to a century or two later. Numerous stone artefacts relating to the life of the Buddha were discovered from these sites. The early tradition of the Buddhist art and Bharhut and Sanchi does not project Buddha in human form. He is projected at these sites in symbolic form of empty throne, a chariot with a rider, a Bodhi tree or a horse without a rider. This was ostensibly done by the followers of the Buddha, out of the great reverence and respect, they had for the master. The Buddha, however, started appearing in human form in Gandhara Art, which starts from the 2nd-3rd c. A.D. onwards. The projection of Buddha here at Gandhara in human form is so wider spread, as if it had been started with a vengeance. In early Buddhist sites of Bharhut, Sanchi, Mathura, Amravati and Nagarjunakonda, the Buddhist art was executed in the hard stone. But in Gandhara the religious art was not restricted to the stone sculptures alone but its excellence was projected in terracotta and stucco at Taxila, the Cave at Bamiyan, in Afghanistan and other sites, where two standing images of the Buddha were found, one of which is the tallest in the world with a height of 177 feet. The life scenes of Buddha right from the dream of the queen Maya to his parinirvana started appearing in the Buddhist art from Bharhut onwards, and Gandhara started doing so by about the 2nd - 3rd c.A.D. In the present work an attempt has been made to portray as many life scenes of Buddha as possible from Gandhara and while doing so the evidence of some other ancient Buddhist sites, like Bharhut, Sanchi, Amaravati, Nagarjunakonda, Mathura, etc. has also been included with the twin purpose of comparative study and to supply the missing link.

Giradhara Ramayana: Composed in Gujarati by Giridhara, the great son of the soil in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries AD translated into English (Ramayana in Regional Languages Series
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8121510309; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
The Ramayana or the story of Rama, has been dominating the Indian religious scene from the time immemorial. Before composition of the work of poetic excellence to be the pioneer of the same, the story was available in fragments in different parts of the country. Though the sage Valmiki was inspired by the sage Narada for composing the Ramayana but Valmiki had to collect several fragments of the story from various regions of the country. Once the story was composed in poetic form, there was a great boost in the popularity of the theme and soon there arose the urge with the people to listen or to recite the Ramayanas in the languages they spoke. As a result of this, several Ramayana in the regional languages were brought out from time to time in the past particularly in the medieval period. The Giridhara Ramayana in Gujarati comes under such types of works, which was composed by Giridhara, a great son of soil, in Gujarati language. The most astonishing aspect of this work has been that it provides occasionally the study of the selected events as discussed in other works, which highlights its unique nature. The English version of the text now produced, will securely interest the readers in country and abroad. Printed Pages: 517. 000102

The Temples of Himachal Pradesh

Indian History sh has been known from the time immemorial as the 'Land of Gods', who have their abodes in the entire length and breadth of the state. The deities enshrined therein, belong to different cults and creeds, of the Hindu, the Buddhist and the Jaina pantheons. These shrines belong to the different periods of Indian history, portray different schools of art and Architecture and have been handed over by the past in the form of stone as well as wooden or even brick structures of sikhara, pagoda, pentroof and dome shaped temples and monasteries. An attempt has been made in this work to project a descriptive account of nearly three hundred such religious edifices belonging to different periods of Indian History in the twelve districts of the state, arranged in a chronological order, also classifying them in (i) Sakti temples, (ii) Siva temples, (iii) Vaishnava temples and (iv) temples of the other deities. While doing so, an effort has been made to correlate the copper plate grants concerning the different temples, which highlight the importance of each one of them. Another interesting feature of the work is, the account concerning the various temples dedicated to the Puranic sages like Vyasa, Markandeya, Parasurama and others, besides the local deities (not related to any of the renowned faiths) which include Deosiddha Balakanath, Shirgil, Devatas and Nagas.
