28006 Roji T. George
Paul's Identity in Galatians: A Postcolonial Appraisal
Christian World Imprints/B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789351481539; Hardcover; New; New; 
In this book, George rejects articulating an essentialised identity of Paul in Hellenistic or Jewish background as done through the Christian centuries by Paul's interpreters. With his lucid, precise, and cogent argumentation, George articulates Paul's postcolonial identity in non-essentialist, transcultural hybrid, and `impure' terms. He argues that the apostle occupied a cultural-political interstitial space between the Jewish, Hellenistic, and Roman cultures from where he spoke in `forked tongue' subverting, simultaneously, all the three cultures.Borrowing cultural-political tools of literary praxis from the literary critics like Said, Spivak, and Bhabha, an exegetical study of Paul's letter to the Galatians is undertaken in the context of the first century Galatia. It enables unraveling Paul's strategic imagination in a postcolonial hybrid context. It is argued that his self-representation and the community identity formation within the christological-ekklesial space subvert competing power discourses emanating from the colonial `centre' and `margins,' at the same time. For Paul, it is in Christ, the `Third space,' that one is emancipated from all oppressive binaries.This book is sure to interest every serious student of Paul and his theology who wishes to hear multiple meanings of Paul's utterances in the then colonial context subverting dominant power discourses, seeks relevance of his writings in the present cultural-political world, and is interested in reading his writings from multiple interpretive ventage points like Postcolonialism.

Scholars and Prophets: Sociology of India from France 19th -20th Centuries
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2013; 818735870X; Hardcover; New; New; 
This is the first book in the Series. Scholars and Prophets deals with the historical genesis of the long and rich scholarship on India in France since the beginning of 19th century, with particular reference to the work of Louis Dumont It considers the works of scholars and the essayists, poets, or esotericists who published on India and shows that Dumont has been influenced by both groups. This understanding illuminates the main criticism that is still addressed to Homo Hierarchicus, which is that in this book Dumont mistook the internal, Brahminical view point on the caste system for a sociological view.

Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2000; 0761994327; Revised Edition; Paperback; New; 
The second volume in the set addresses the needs of hands-on practitioners of training, and program developers who focus on the training process.

The last section is about managing programs—developing group and climate, trainers and styles, building in post-training supports, and evaluating training to modify programs in light of it. The volume ends with a chapter on action research. Every chapter has examples from the authors` actual practice, others` formulations, and relevant readings. Printed Pages: 432. 028702

Forever Ladakh: The Crown Jewel of India (A Guide to Ladakh in the Himalayas)
Lustre Press/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789351941774; Softcover; New; 15 x 22 Cm 
Forever Ladakh is the definitive guide for the new millennium. Based on countless interviews with locals and the latest in academic scholarship, this travel guide is a fun yet penetrating snapshot of today’s Ladakh. Here you will find crucial visitors’ information, as well as folklore, local histories and details on legendary sites, never before published. This is the result of immeasurable grassroots support in the Ladakhi community and is part of a greater effort to celebrate the diversity and treasures of the Himalayas. Despite Ladakh’s remote location in the high-altitude mountain desert of northern India, a new and infectious wave of interest in its culture and history has emerged. With that, adventure is abounding. In a region where the history is still being uncovered and where all nooks have yet to be charted, the magic of discovery still lingers. With Forever Ladakh, a compendium of special access information, you will be guided through the best parts of the region in refreshing detail and with a sense of the region’s true spirit. More than a travel guidebook, Forever Ladakh is a tribute to the people of the region and the treasures they have safeguarded throughout time. In line with that ethos, the photographs in this guide are almost entirely the work of local photographers and several present-day artisans, athletes and professionals of Ladakh are also featured throughout the book.

Vedanta-Parijata-Saurabha of Nimbarka and Vedanta-Kaustubha of Srinivasa (Commentaries on the Brahma-Sutras)-English Translation, 3 Vols.
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8121511216; Reprint; Cloth; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Nimbarka's commentary on the Brahmasutras known as the Vedanta-Parijata-Saurabha, and that of his immediate disciple Srinivasa styled the Vedanta-Kaustubha are the chief works of the school of philosophy associated with the name of Nimbarka. The latter is not, however, a mere commentary on the former, as is sometimes wrongly supposed, but a full exposition of the views expressed in the Vedanta-Parijata-Saurabha which is very terse and concise and is not always clear. Both the treatises are therefore essential for the proper understanding of the doctrine of Nimbarka. Printed Pages: 1216. 021540

Exhalations Poems
Abhinav Publications/Kaveri Books; New Delhi, India; 8170174848; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The word is a free bird, and it is not possible to cage it within the departments of literature or languages. The word belongs to all and to nobody. You may groom too wild a word in the classroom, but you cannot give birth to it there. World is nature, human nature at its moments of awakening. Thus, though Romen Basu has pursued an entirely disparate discipline in life than the plough of the pen, he nevertheless has been driven by inner necessity to cast into words his awakenings to consciousness. A brush with the larger reality throws up brighter sparks, and by and by the circumference of our vision widens. Printed Pages: 90. 107870

28042 Romen Basu
Big Little World (Poems)
Abhinav Publications/Kaveri Books; New Delhi, India; 8170174570; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
"Romen Basu' s verse cannot be rushed into the reader's heart. So, since he only persuades and hints at life truths, with a gracious indirection, nothing frontal. Those who are familiar with his earlier volumes of poems would readily agree with this. Certainly some of these readers would have derived much pleasure and profit from those. Like the finesse that is palpable in the prose and substance of his novels, his poems too gleam with an expressive beauty. There is rarely a page that lacks in vivid imagery and the memorable phrase. Basu's work then is not the offering of a slick journalist, nor that of the timid intellectual, nor yet is it modeled like the intricate jewellry of the aesthete. What it attempts is a crystalline vein despite struggling through the torpid substance of modem day existence. Not being writing for writing's sake, it invariably circles round our prime human concerns. In sum, these verses are echoes of the author's own running pulse even as it progresses through life's varied passage. 107880

28043 Romen Basu
Whistle in the Wind
Abhinav Publications/Kaveri Books; New Delhi, India; 8170174368; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
"The author in Romen Basu actualizes a rare order of awareness in his verses. A multi-universe of experience is indeed reflected in his words. The poet in him is often all praise and obsessed with the symbol of the heart's ascent. His words are quietly recharged with an unusual, confiding intimacy, as well as firmly expressed intensity. Even then the usual struggle of a poet with his demon is nowhere evident in any of his verses. By and large they express the moment when he has passed through diurnal uncertainty into the region of peace and wherein everything has as if miraculously become as clear as sparkling crystal washed by torrents of snowflakes into dazzling purity. Thus, one of the salient features of his speech is its psychic atmosphere. The secret of the work lies in its underlying themes, whose framework is imagined no matter which way any of the verses have been individually written. Thus they invariably retain the atmosphere of life's sacred mystery of us. 107881

Preoccupied throughout his long prolific career are images that reveal the nature of being alive in the twentieth century. Many of his novels speak out his innermost feelings through form and metaphors of much power. As he has matured over the years his concern for truth and the realities of everyday, life in India have led him in new directions, as for instance his novel on the Punjab, the one on Bengal, and the one in the offing on the tragedy of Kashmir. 107935

The long years he spent at the United Nations have not only afforded him a keen insight into the intricacies of the instruments of Power, but also the mind of a humanity groping for light in the gathering darkness. 108011

He also carried on correspondence with British administrators to Press on them his suggestions for redress.The present volume comprises his speeches and writings on Indian questions, during 1897-1902 and also includes his letters to the then Viceroy Lord Curzon on Indian famines and land tenures. In these speeches and writings he has discussed, threadbare, the causes of famines/ drawbacks of the British system of land tenure and Taxation and suggested fruitful remedies. The contents of this volume not only are very authentic source material for the Study of the economic History of India, but also provide ample guidelines for the present Policy makers and administrators.

The Past Before Us: Historical Traditions of Early North India
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8178242958; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
It has so often been said that Indian civilization lacks historical writing and therefore a sense of history that this notion passes for a truism. There has been little attempt to show up the falsity of the generalization. In the present book a magisterial historiographical survey of every major form within which ancient North Indian history is embedded or evident Romila Thapar shows an intellectually dynamic ancient world profuse with ideas about the past, an arena replete with societies constructing, reconstructing, and contesting various visions of worlds before their own. She argues that to possess history a civilization does not have to reveal writing in forms regarded as belonging to the established genres of history. In fact, a variety of ancient Indian texts reflect a consciousness of history; and, subsequently, there come into existence recognizable historical traditions and forms of historical writing. Both varieties of texts those which reflect a consciousness of history and those which reveal forms of historical writing were deployed to reveal the past, and drawn upon as a cultural, political, religious, or other resource to legitimize an existing social order. The Vedic corpus, the Ramayana, the Mahabharata, the itihasa-purana tradition, the Buddhist and Jaina canons, the hagiographical and biographical literature, the inscriptional evidence, a variety of chronicles, and dramatic forms such as the Mudrarakshasa are all scrutinized afresh in this book: not as sources for historical data, but instead as a civilizations many ways of thinking about and writing its history.

The Penguin History of Early India: From the Origins to AD 1300
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2003; 0143029894; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
A largely rewritten version of a classic history of early India concerned not only with the past but also with the interaction of the past and the present. Romila Thapar’s Penguin History of Early India brings to life many centuries of the Indian past. Dynastic history provides a chronological frame but the essential thrust of the book is the explanation of the changes in society and economy. The mutation of religious beliefs and practices, the exploration of areas of knowledge in which India excelled, its creative literature, are all woven into a historical context. In this version, the opening chapters explain how the interpretations of early Indian history have changed. Further, although the diversity of sources and their readings are well known, nevertheless, this narrative provides fresh readings and raises new questions. Romila Thapar gives a vivid and nuanced picture of the rich mosaic of varied landscapes, languages, kingdoms and beliefs, and the interaction between these that went into the making of a remarkable civilization.

India: Another Millennium?
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 0670896454; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The concept of the millennium encompasses a sense of progress and the hope for a better future. Pursuing this notion, the present collection of essays edited by Romila Thapar, and accompanied by her introduction, explores the challenges before twenty-first-century India in its quest for a democratic and just society. Globalization and the revolution in information technology provide a new context to the problems faced in contemporary times by Indians. But will globalization ensure rapid economic growth and development in the face of low literacy, rising population, the gradual withdrawal of the State from social commitments and the hesitant formation of a responsible civil society? Will imitation westernization and the consumerism that comes with it, further a just society? Political institutions will require strengthening in order to manage the delicate balance of democracy. What are the strains that it will be subjected to in the struggles for empowerment by groups currently marginalized, and the growing social and economic disparities, accompanied by violence and terrorism? How will India’s multiculturism be affected by the upsurge of various identities and the attempts of exclusionist nationalism to play a hegemonic role? Will the family as an institution be transformed to enhance gender justice? Will India become a world-class IT player? Will new technology ensure the autonomy of the media, where such an autonomy can become a pre-requisite for democratic functioning? Can the mauling of the Indian landscape be halted? Fourteen of India’s foremost scholars and specialists in various fields reflect upon these diverse issues in the essays collected here. Thought provoking and incisive, displaying an optimism tempered with caution, the essays in this collection are by Bina Agarwal, Javeed Alam, Kaushik Basu, Rustom Bharucha, Dipankar Gupta, Gopal Guru, Sunil Khilnani, Krishna Kumar, N.R. Narayana Murthy, Prabhat Patnaik, Dhruv Raina, N.Ram, Mahesh Rangarajan and P.Sainath. Covering a large canvas, India: Another Millennium? compels us to look at the hard choices before India in the early decades of this millennium.

Boldly reinterpreting the age-old Tibetan and Nepalese art form known as Thangka, Celestial Gallery offers beautifully detailed representations of mandalas, or celestial spheres. Simply gazing upon the mandalas is meant to inspire in the viewer a heightened state of intention and clarity. Master painter Romio Shrestha and his team of artisan monks have created postmodern versions of these enlightened Buddha realms from hand-ground malachite, lapis, marigolds, and other rare substances. Painted at times with a mere three hairs from the tail of a cat, these multifaceted scenes of otherworldly deities are rich with hauntingly powerful detail. Depictions of White Tara, Green Tara, the Medicine Buddha, and many other celestial beings invite and inspire meditation and reflection. Printed Pages: 61. 038016

Family and the Courts in Modern Egypt: A Study Based on Decisions by the Shari'a Courts 1900-1955
E.J. Brill; Leiden, The Netherlands; 1997; 9004107428; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
This important new study describes and analyzes the response of Egyptian society, as reflected in court decisions, to legal reform pertaining to matters of personal status and succession during the first half of the twentieth century. The main issues in this regard are the extent to which traditional law and legal reform are implemented or circumvented in daily practice, and the role of the judges in this process. Family and the Courts in Modern Egypt contains three parts: marriage, divorce, and intergenerational relations. Scholars and the general reader will find its main contribution to be its systematic analysis of court records relating to the application of modern reforms in family matters; and its attempt to situate the legal aspects of family life within the larger context of socio-economic development in Egyptian society.

Adorning Maitreya's Intent: Arriving at the View of Nonduality
Snow Lion/Shambhala Publications/TBI; New Delhi, India; 2017; 1611803667; Softcover; New; 
According to tradition, Distinguishing the Middle from the Extremes (Madhy?ntavibh?ga) was revealed by Maitreya to Asa?ga, and the radical view it presents forever changed the way Mahayana Buddhists perceive reality. Here, the Tibetan master Rongtön unpacks this manual and its practices for us in a way that is at once accessible and profound, with actual practical meditative applications. The work explains the vast paths of the three vehicles of Buddhism, emphasizing the view of Yog?c?ra, and demonstrates the inseparability of experience and emptiness. It offers a detailed presentation of the three natures of reality, an accurate understanding of which provides the antidotes to confusion and suffering. The translator’s introduction presents a clear overview of all the concepts explored in the text, making it easy for the reader to bridge its ideas to actual practice. Printed Pages: 176. 112652

Entering the Way of the Great Vehicle: Dzogchen as the Culmination of the Mahayana
Snow Lion/Shambhala Publications/TBI; New Delhi, India; 2017; 1611803683; Hardcover; New; New; 
Rongzom Chökyi Zangpo wrote this treatise in the eleventh century during the renaissance of Buddhism in Tibet that was spurred by the influx of new translations of Indian Buddhist texts, tantras, and esoteric transmissions from India. For political and religious reasons, adherents of the “new schools” of Tibetan Buddhism fostered by these new translations cast the older tradition of lineages and transmissions as impure and decadent. Rongzompa composed the work translated here in order to clearly and definitively articulate how Dzogchen was very much in line with the wide variety of sutric and tantric teachings espoused by all the Tibetan schools. Using the kinds of philosophic and linguistic analyses favored by the new schools, he demonstrates that the Great Perfection is indeed the culmination and maturation of the Mah?y?na, the Great Vehicle. The central topic of the work is the notion of illusory appearance, for when one realizes deeply that all appearances are illusory, one realizes also that all appearances are in that respect equal. The realization of the equality of all phenomena is said to be the Great Perfection approach to the path, which frees one from both grasping at, and rejecting, appearances. However, for those unable to remain effortlessly within the natural state, in the final chapter Rongzompa also describes how paths with effort are included in the Great Perfection approach.

Islam Translated: Literature, Conversion, and the Arabic Cosmopolis of South and Southeast Asia
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8178243334; Hardcover; New; New; 
In Islam Translated, Ronit Ricci uses the Book of One Thousand Questions—from its Arabic original to its adaptations into the Javanese, Malay, and Tamil languages between the sixteenth and twentieth centuries—as a means to consider connections that linked Muslims across divides of distance and culture. Examining the circulation of this Islamic text and its varied literary forms, Ricci explores how processes of literary translation and religious conversion were historically interconnected, mutually dependent, and creatively reformulated within societies making the transition to Islam.

Social and Gender Analysis in Natural Resource Management: Learning Studies and Lessons from Asia
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0761934626; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Asian societies are not only complex but are undergoing rapid change in the face of the forces of globalization and privatization. Issues of gender, class, caste, ethnicity and age are central to understanding power relations and decision-making processes concerning the access to, use of and management of natural resources.This necessitates a sound understanding of social realities in order to ensure proper participation in, and the equitable distribution of the benefits of, development interventions and policies. Written in this framework, this volume documents and reflects on the steps being taken by researchers of natural resource management to implement social and gender analysis in South and Southeast Asia. Grounded in empirical reality, the six case studies are drawn from India, Nepal, China, Viet Nam and Mongolia. The volume concludes with a comparative analysis of the six cases. This analysis highlights the key common issues and challenges identified by the research teams. These include organizational change, mainstreaming social and gender issues, the enduring inequities facing women, and improving the quality of participation. Printed Pages: 252. 028792

Learning from the Field: Innovating China's Higher Education System
Foundation Books; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8175966017; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 160 x 240 Mm 
Scholars have long studied classical Sanskrit culture in almost total isolation from its courtly context. As the first book-length study to focus exclusively on the royal court as a social and cultural institution, this book fills that gap in the literature. Using both literary and inscriptional sources, it begins with the rise and spread of royal households and political hierarchies from the Gupta period (c. 350–750), and traces the emergence of a coherent courtly worldview which would remain stable for almost a millennium to 1200. Later chapters examine key features of courtly life which have been all but ignored by the previous literature on ancient Indian society: manners, ethics, concepts of personal beauty, and theories of disposition. The book ends with a sustained examination of the theory and practice of erotic love in the context of the wider social dynamics and anxieties which faced the people of the court. Contents Introduction Part I. The Rise and Structure of Courtly Life in Early Medieval India: 1. The people of the court 2. The culture of the court 3. The protocol of the court Part II. Aesthetics and the Courtly Sensibility: 4. Beauty and refinement 5. The education of disposition Part III. Anxiety and Romance: 6. Courtship and the royal household 7. The battle of love Postscript. Printed Pages: 318 with 5 line diagrams, 15 half-tones, and 1 table. 022834

Makkabi: Helsingin juutalaisen urheiluseuran Historia
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2016; 9522227056; New; 
Helsingin Makkabi on tiettävästi maailman vanhin keskeytyksettä toiminut juutalainen urheiluseura. Seuran vaiheikas historia 1900-luvun alusta nykyaikaan kertoo sen laajasta lajikirjosta, menestyksestä ja panoksesta suomalaiselle urheilulle. Alun perin Stjärnan -nimellä aloittaneen seuran perustivat ennakkoluulottomat nuoret jo 12 vuotta ennen kuin viranomaiset antoivat juutalaisyhteisölle toimiluvan. 110-vuotiaalla Makkabilla on ollut perustamisestaan lähtien tärkeä tehtävä Helsingin juutalaisnuorison kasvattajana. Seura on tuottanut monia kansallisella ja kansainvälisellä tasolla menestyviä urheilijoita, kuten olympiavoittaja Elias Katzin, maajoukkuejalkapalloilija Roni Porokara nja jääkiekkoilija Kim Hirschovitsin.
