28315 Saad Ashraf
The Postmaster: A Novel
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 014303152X; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
Ghulam Rasool is barely eight years old when his father, a superintendent in the Indian Posts and Telegraphs Department, passes away in 1901, ostensibly unable to cope with the demise of Her Majesty Queen Victoria. Brought up by his spirited and pragmatic mother, Noorani Begum, Ghulam Rasool imbibes two of his father's maxims unfailingly: The British are the most intelligent race in the world, and as such they deserve unswerving loyalty. Battling tremendous odds, financial and social, Ghulam Rasool gets himself a proper English education thanks to the sure guiding hand of his mother and a series of fortuitous breaks. Over the next thirty years, his single-minded devotion to his career in the postal department, to the exclusion of the momentous changes sweeping the socio-political scene in the country, sees him scale the heights of success as his job takes him through a kaleidoscope of experiences in the cities of Lahore, Rawalpindi, Amritsar and Simla. Saad Ashraf's quaint and charming prose traces a man's journey from the alleyways of Old Delhi of the early 1900s to post-Partition Pakistan, seamlessly weaving into the text a series of memorable vignettes and characters: Ghulam Rasool's first infatuation; his lifelong friendship with Ahmad, the son of the Imam, who falls in love with a courtesan and distinguishes himself in the First World War; his marriage to Sara which leaves him intellectually unfulfilled; and, finally, his one magnificent obsessionKiran, the Hindu wife of his subordinate which threatens to undo everything that he has achieved in his lifetime ...

28316 Saad Bin Jung
Subhan and I: My Adventures with the Angling Legend of India
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174368779; Softcover; New; 
Set in the heart of Indian bush, Subhan and I is about angling for the hump-backed mahseer, the greatest fresh water fighting fish in the world, under the most harrowing circumstances, in a swim which many experts believe cannot hold big fish whilst others state that even if they were there landing them would be impossible. It is against this challenging backdrop, two men— Subhan and the author—from socially different backgrounds battle hard to outwit and land the elusive mahseer in the turbulent waters of River Cauvery.The book is not just a treasure trove of information on angling and life in the bush, it is also about the life and trials faced by the two men, lost in the madness of trying to save the mahseer against all odds. Of special interest to the readers will be the tips on angling. The many anecdotes related to the author’s family and life experiences lend the book its heart and soul. It also traces the position of the fish in history as it flirts with the Gods of our world.The book is a must-read for not only anglers but also wildlife enthusiasts. Printed Pages: 256. 108563

28319 Saadat Hasan Manto
Naked Voices: Stories and Sketches
IndiaInk/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8186939423; Hardcover; New; New; 
Naked Voices, Stories & Sketches is one of the most authentic collection showcasing the best of Saadat Hasan Manto as a great storyteller and an honest commentator of all times.In this collection of sixteen stories and three sketches, Manto brazenly celebrates the warts of a seemingly decent society, as well as its dark underbelly - tired and overworked prostitutes in The Candle's Tears or Loser All the Way; ruthless as also humane pimps in The Hundred Candle Watt Bulb and Sahay; the utter helplessness of men in the face of a sexual encounter in Naked Voices and Coward; and the madness perpetrated by the Partition as witnessed in By God! and Yazid. In one of the three sketches, which form part of this collection, the author brilliantly reveals himself to the world in a schizophrenic piece titled Saadat Hasan, calling Manto the Writer a liar, a thief and a failure! And in another titled In a Letter to Uncle Sam, Manto superbly couches his anti-imperialistic views in an innocent letter from a poor nephew to a capitalist and prosperous uncle in America.

Like every good, dog-eared and much-used family cookbook, Annapurni has been compiled with careful deliberation and bears the look and feel of what could have been one's grandmothers' diary of recipes. This volume will have readers salivating as it takes them on a mouth-watering journey across the flavours of India’s south-eastern coast with its spices, seafood, and sweets, ending with a stainless-steel tumbler of freshly-brewed filter coffee. 108514

The Past of the Outcaste: Readings in Dalit History
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789386296658; Hardcover; New; New; 
Are you fit for political power even though you do not allow a large class of your own countrymen like the untouchables to use public school? … the use of public wells? … the use of public streets? … to eat any food they like? These questions, raised by Dr Ambedkar roughly a century ago, still hold true. The prevalence of caste-based violence and rising Dalit assertion has led to a revival of the movement spearheaded by luminaries such as Phule, Ambedkar and others. To comprehend this rising revolution, it is important to trace writings of the public intellectuals and social scientists through history. The Past of the Outcaste brings together historical narratives of the ‘outcastes’, which together throw light on the economic, civil, cultural and political exclusion and discrimination that is caste-based.This collection includes statements on untouchability by leaders of the freedom movement—for example, Gokhale, Lajpat Rai, Ambedkar and Gandhi; essays on the history of the outcastes in the pre-colonial period; on the beginnings of Dalit consciousness and organised resistance to caste oppression; on the relationship between the nationalist movement and Dalits; and finally, essays locating the Dalits in the post-independence polity in India. This carefully edited compendium will be of use to students and scholars of history, sociology and political science in general and those in the area of ‘exclusion studies’ in particular.

Bhutan: New Pathways to Growth
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 019947401X; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Kingdom of Bhutan has gone through a remarkable socio-economic transformation over the past five decades. It has progressed from a traditional stage of economic development with limited production rooted in one primary sector, to achieving the preconditions for an economic take-off. However, Bhutan is still confronted with a number of development challenges, including a narrow economic base, limited private sector development, underdeveloped credit markets, and a build-up in economic inequality with significant youth unemployment. This book chronicles Bhutan’s development story and discusses a range of policies that can unlock the country’s economic potential and overcome its limitations. It consolidates a body of knowledge accumulated by the Asian Development Bank while working with the Royal Government of Bhutan on monitoring and strengthening its macroeconomic management framework, and through support to development activities throughout the country.

The Hindu Temples in South East Asia: Their Role in Social, Economic and Political Formations
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8173054282; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 22 x 28 Cm 
Many thousand temples built within a time span of about thousand years, before the fourteen century, stand as witness to the creative genius of different communities of Southeast Asia. They also testify to the cultural dialogue between India and Southeast Asia centered on the architectural and planning experiences as coded in the silpasastra texts of India. The present monograph looks at the Khmer temples of Hindu inspiration spread over mainland Southeast Asia both at the level of ideology and praxis, and attempts an integrated account of their symbolical as well as functional aspects. In the selection and regrouping of temples for the present study the three key words-social, economic and political formations have been the driving motive. The temples or the group of temples which explicate their role in these basic formations of human civilization have, therefore been taken up in this monograph. This monograph offers a chapter devoted to various aspects of temples in the Khmer mainland of Southeast Asia. The first chapter examines the evolution of temples in the region from the open air sacred spaces. The following chapter sees the temple as an architectural search for the centre, analyses the ideology of Meru and presents 13 examples of temple mountains. The temple's catalytic role in the formation of village and city forms the theme of the next two chapters.

The Tribal Village in Bihar: A Study in Unity and Extension
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1968; 8121504317; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
From the early fifties there was a spurt of interest among social anthropologists, both Indian and foreign, in village studies, however, covered the tribal communities with this focus. This study seeks to fill this gap for the Chhotanagpur tribal area. It embraces in its wide sweep an extensive coverage of the tribal scene in Bihar. Taking villages predominantly inhabited by different tribes on various socio-economic levels, the author tries to set up the model of an average tribal village in Bihar. He examines the extent to which such a village can be viewed as a unity and also its extensions in various social fields. The danger of studying a village in isolation from its neighbourhood or from its history has been avoided. The entire social process has been analyzed in the background of the history of the region.

People at the Bottom: A Portrait of the Scavengers
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8170229065; Hardcover; New; New; 
Scavengers in India constitute the lowest rung of Indian society. They are, in fact, the people at the bottom. They are the real Antyaja as conceived by Mahatma Gandhi. Although the scavengers are with us from the beginning of civilisation, there are no detailed study of their living and working conditions, their troubles and tribulations, their hopes and frustrations. The cluster of castes engaged in this profession has been looking to the Indian civil society for their salvation. In spite of the recommendations of many committees and commissions they have not bee liberated from the shakles of poverty and pollution. They have been forced to live a life of degradation bereft of human dignity. Their state is indeed a living disgrace for the country. The work is based on an empirical study covering 5200 households in urban and rural settings in Bihar. It is intended to give a glimpse of the living and working conditions of the scavenger castes and to bring out the impact of different welfare programmes for their liberation and rehabilitation in the gender and human rights perspectives. Efforts to bring the scavengers form the margin to mainstream of Indian society and ultimately to empower them have also been assessed in terms of the success achieved. Towards the end of the study and number of steps have been suggested to speed up this process. Printed Pages: 226. 112555

The Lost World of Sarala Devi: Selected Writings
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 019946667X; Softcover; New; 
A multifaceted personality and a prolific Odia writer, Sarala Devi (1904?1986) was a noted freedom fighter, feminist, and social activist of her times. Her work covers many forms, including prose, fiction, play, literary criticism, and biography. This book brings together some of Sarala Devi?s best writings, including her charming tales for children with fascinating characters. Far ahead of her time, and completely forgotten now, she voiced important social and political concerns through her works and advocated a larger role for women in the public sphere. Edited by Sachidananda Mohanty, this compilation of lucid pieces translated from Odia not only enables us to grasp the development of Indian feminism but also offers a glimpse into the lost world of a reformer with a fiery spirit. Mohanty does justice to this complicated woman by his selection from her writings and recognition of changes in her position on certain issues. This book will encourage additional research of value to women?s history.

28361 Sadanand Deshmukh; Translated By Vilas Salunke
Baromaas: Twelve Enduring Months
Popular Prakashan; Mumbai, India; 2013; 8179917770; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Baromaas: Twelve Enduring Months, a Sahitya Akademi Award winning novel of 2004, presents a gripping tale of a farmer's family in contemporary India. Its realism is so convincing, content so genuine and near perfect, form so aesthetically pleasing that it could become one of the best regional novels in World Literature. A representative tale of Indian farming that depends on the erratic rain-god on the one hand and the expectancy of high market returns on the other both of which rarely come to the farmer's aid the tale develops a point of no return. Deeply rooted in the Vidarbha soil, Sadanand Deshmukh, a regional novelist of repute in Marathi, captures the tragedy of the honest, god-fearing but hard working Tanpure family so faithfully that it could even be compared to the poignancy and realism of the Joads in John Steinbeck's Nobel Prize winning American regional novel The Grapes of Wrath. The tragic inevitability of the plot, its down-to-earth characters and its near perfect realism helps reach the novel to a pinnacle of artistic achievement. Printed Pages: 384. 037663

Myths From the Mahabharata (Volume 2: Study in Patterns and Symbols)

The present Book forms part of the bigger plan of studying the Mahabharata, from a different point of view, the Vol. I being Myths from the Mahabharata - quest for immortality. The various mythical accounts, concerning awkward looking tests and Supranormal Birth, collected and faithfully preserved by the tradition of the suta-s with a belief of iti-ha-asa ("This happened so' or "This was so'), are studied in this volume, taking into account the Mythological patterns and symbols they present. The chapter on "Tests" deals with the tests taken of the disciples breathing the 'gurukula'-atmosphere as also the tests taken of the royal personages by the whimsical sages, the chapter not leaving off the point of sexual hospitality asked by the guest as a test of the householder. The pattern of myths woven round the motif of "Supranormal Birth" is seen unfolding many an interesting symbol concerning birth-phenomenon, which had remained unearthed up to this time.

Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8173052166; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The book forms the third and final part of the plan of studying the Mahabharata, from a different point of view, Vol. 1 being-Myths from the Mahabharata-Quest for Immortality, Vol. 2 being- Myths from the Mahabharata-Study in Patterns and Symbols. In this volume are unearthed through myths some iti-ha-asa records, which shed light on the facts and incidents of the hoary past, as yet shrouded in mystery. The iti-ha-asa records through myths, such as those gathered round the sage Agastya and those of the advent of the river Ganga, can be taken as breathing the 'true history' from the modern day point of view. Some iti-ha-asa records in the Mahabharata as seen through the tales of "Metamorphosis" and the "Miscellaneous Tales" lead us to the study of 'patterns' and are a help to explain many a myth. The Appendices serve as searchlight on some myths and folktales. Printed Pages: 304. 100238

Vedic Sacrifices: Early Nature, 2 Vols.
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2000; 817305195X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 22 Cm 
The book is meant to mark the state of ritual as found in the Samhita and Brahmana texts. This is much before the Srautasutras, which in later times codified every matter of the then developed elaborate ritual. The glimpses from the Rgveda do not correspond to the details of the ritual found in these later texts. With the Brahmanas, the so called Srauta type of Vedic ritual was almost fixed, through the Srautasutras at some places show changes - omissions or additions. Even at the Samhits-Brahmana period, the institution of Vedic sacrifices evolved to such a level as to make a labyrinth of rules, options and explanatory myths. Without the knowledge of ritual of this stage, the picture of the ritual got from the Srautasutras would remain incomplete. The present book is meant for both scholars and those elite readers, who are interested in knowing the main sacrifices without getting lost in the net of rites. Printed Pages: 584. 100240

"The book deals with variety of concepts, images and beliefs in the Vedic tradition, revealed through Vedic hymns and rituals. Several images and symbols, at times, are influenced by folk-beliefs at that period, some of which are current even to-day. "The complex image of 'Aksara' not only having a rain-symbolism but also getting a dimension of proto-philosophy, that of the Son-husband current even today, that of the "crying worlds" not restricted only to the Vedic literature, the images centering round Soma as a ritual-drink, the 'eye' of Prajapati, the problematic "Sasarpari", divinity of the banners, Vana though a war-trumpet changing into ritual musical instrument, the unique birth of Vasistha and Agastya from a jar, the words 'Dvibarhas' and 'siprin' indicative of power and status, the riddle of the black antelope, dance of Indra and Chaya giving a glimpse of ancient war-dance - these and many more, delvings in the Vedic hymns and rituals display a treasure of myriad images."

Towards Understanding Hindu Myths
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1996; 8173050805; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 22 Cm 
The Book takes a survey of important opinions and schools regarding the meaning of myths, such as the nature-myth school, the ritual-myth school which believed that all myths and rituals are intimately connected to each other and that they are counterparts of each other, the functional school and the structural approach to the understanding of myths. It also takes note of the historical and the typological method. It examines all these methods and evaluates the role of metaphor and symbol in the formation, and hence understanding, of myths. Dwelling on some of the tribal and classical myths studied by such scholars as Kramer, Malinowski, Claude Levi-Strauss, Kirk and others, it tries to throw fresh light on the meaning of these myths by further comparison. Non-Hindu myths are put to comparison with those from The Hindu context. This forms part I of the book. In part II it presents a study of some Hindu myths and legends, explaining the various symbols, motifs and patterns therein and tries to arrive at the meaning of these myths and legends. Thus, the 'bones of the sage Dadhici' get related to the ribs of the sacrificial horse. The avatara of Narsimha (Visnu Man-lion) gets related to the actual practice of showing lion-heads on thrones and pillars from ancient middle east to India, and Burma. The myth of Trisanku's bodily ascent to heaven has its source in a ritual at the Vajapeya sacrifice. The motif of the 'eighth', in relation to Krsna, has its source in early Vedic beliefs. Fresh light has been thrown on the myth of Renuka and Yellamma. The myth and ritual of Mahisasura-mardini gets a fresh scrutiny with new evidence from the Veda and south Indian folk-tales.

It is a theme which, until now, has not been adequately explored nor written about in detail. Hence the importance of this work which truly fills a great need in many ways. 102488

Philosophy of logic and philosophy of language are closely interrelated areas of research. Many of the philosophical questions arising from logic cannot be fully addressed without taking into consideration certain issues associated with the concerned language. The philosophical issues, e.g. concerning validity of an argument, proof for the validity of an argument are philosophical problems, which are generated from the study of logic.The book makes it explicit on how certain important philosophical questions generated from logic are, in the ultimate analysis, rooted in the area of philosophy of language. It also suggests certain means of settling these issues of philosophy of logic. In addition to certain issues in philosophy of logic the book extensively deals with certain issues in philosophy of language such as the issue concerning holism, semantic inferentialism, realism, objectivity of statements and representationalism.Those who are engaged in advanced research in philosophy of language and philosophy of logic will benefit immensely from reading this book. It will also be of great use to the students of philosophy and to the general readers as well. Printed Pages: 182. 110951

Objectivity and Communicability of Meaning
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8192611442; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Introduction. 1. Indeterminacy thesis and the naturalized semantics: a critique from the first-person perspective of meaning/Amitabha Dasgupta. 2. Communication, scepticism and triangulation/Kausik Bhattacharya. 3. Word, sentence and meaning/Nirmalya Narayan Chakraborty. 4. Meaning internalism vs meaning externalism can meaning holism be defended?/R.C. Pradhan. 5. The theory of Anvitabhidhana the Dvaita perspective/D. Prahlada Char. 6. How to apprehend the meaning of a word?/Gangadhar Kar. 7. Can the term Akasha Be meaningful in the Jatipadarthavada framework?/Madhumita Chattopadhyay. Index.This collection begins with the assumption that communication through language is possible. The moot question it is engaged with is whether the communicability of meaning entails the objectivity of meaning or not. The nuances involved in the idea of objectivity are deciphered and in what sense meaning is objective, if at all, is discussed in the volume.The articles included in this volume are written from the Western as well as from the Indian philosophical perspectives. Philosophical views of Wittgenstein, Searle, Putnam, Davidson, Quine, McDowell and many such eminent philosophers from the West, and the views of scholars of Nyaya, Buddhism and Mimamsa schools of Indian philosophy are studied closely in these articles. Researchers interested in the issue of objectivity and communicability of meaning of language will find food for their thought in reading this book. Students of philosophy, linguistics, logic, mathematics and the allied subjects in Western and Indian traditions will have a clear grasp of the nature of meaning that is made explicit in this collection.

28385 Sadhana Amte; Translated By Shobha Pawar
Samidha
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8125034048; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
A fairy tale romance and a blueprint for anyone who wants to venture into social service, this autobiography of Sadhanatai Amte – a woman who chose to marry a frenzied man and a dreamer, Baba Amte – is also a tale of her willing surrender in love without the slightest loss of her identity. It is a document of the dreams they dreamt for humankind and their struggle to put life into them. These memoirs present the portrait of a woman beside a man; a perfect consort who has the ability to tame the living storm, Baba Amte. Written without a stance, the distinctive simplicity of this transparent narrative, as compared to other similar writings by women, it has the power to stir its readers with its salty sea-air tang, and the warmth of a fruitful mad pursuit of a goal—at once personal and impersonal. A book like this – a saga of suffering, hopes, tensions and success, as well as the thrill of pleasure of work the two experienced while pursuing their goal – will serve as the beacon of light for posterity, and as a model in human relationships.

In Quest of Indian Folktales: Pandit Ram Gharib Chaube and William Crooke
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8125034501; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
In Quest of Indian Folktales publishes for the first time a collection of northern Indian folktales from the late nineteenth century. Reputedly the work of William Crooke, a well-known folklorist and British colonial official, the tales were actually collected, selected, and translated by a certain Pandit Ram Gharib Chaube. In 1996, Sadhana Naithani discovered this unpublished collection in the archive of the Folklore Society, London. Since then, she has uncovered the identity of the mysterious Chaube and the details of his collaboration with the famous folklorist. In an extensive four-chapter introduction, Naithani describes Chaube's relationship to Crooke and the essential role he played in Crooke's work, as both a native informant and a trained scholar. By unearthing the fragmented story of Chaube's life, Naithani gives voice to a new identity of an Indian folklore scholar in colonial India. The publication of these tales and the discovery of Chaube's role in their collection reveal the complexity of the colonial intellectual world and problematize our own views of folklore in a postcolonial world.

Kavyamimamsa of Rajasekhara: Original Text in Sanskrit and Translation with Explanatory Notes
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8124606943; First Edition; Softcover; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
As a body, Sanskrit writings unfold India’s millennia-long, almost unbroken intellectual tradition: not only of philosophy and grammar, but of literary theory as well. The concepts and critical theories, which the Sanskrit poeticians advanced or the issues they sought to address, inhere both universal appeal and validity. And, with certain modifications, these can well live up to the demands of modern literature. In this long and powerful tradition of Sanskrit literary theory that marked a definitive begining with Bharata’s Natyashastra (first century ad), Kavyamimamsa is a monumental work. Written sometime during 880-920 ad by Rajashekhara: an eminent poet, dramatist and critic, it is a kind of practical treatise for poets: kavishiksha manual -- highlighting, as it does, all possible attributes that go into the making of a good poet and a good poetic composition. Among other relevant aspects, Rajashekhara also includes here a systematic exposition of the views/opinions of his predecessors, with illustrations of the literary practices of various times and climes put down after careful empirical observation. Now, when there is a growing scholarly interest in the study of Sanskrit literary theory and how it is positioned vis-a-vis the Western critical tenets, Dr. Sadhana Parashar brings Rajashekhara’s classic within everyone’s reach -- offering the first-ever, complete English translation of Kavyamimamsa, with its original Sanskrit text and comprehensive explanatory notes. For sure, it is invaluable to the scholars of linguistics and literary criticism.Printed Pages: 350 with 2 maps 100474
