The Puzzle of India's Governance: Culture, Context and Comparative Theory
Routledge; London, UK; 0415348617; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
India no longer gets an easy ride as the world's largest democracy. Spectatcular terrorist attacks on India's Parliament and places of worship, communal riots of unprecedented ferocity, lingering separatist insurgency and violent caste conflict in impoverished regions have combined to cause a closer appraisal of India's capacity to sustain the rule of law. This book examines how India has been able to sustain democratic governance while undergoing substantial social, economic and political changes through a neo-institutional rational choice model of governance, bounded by local culture and context. The author applies the central logic of bounded rationality to fresh data derived through quantitative and qualitative methods from a geographically diverse, multi-ethnic post-colonial state. It sheds light on governance in India and generates findings relevant to cross-national studies of governance. The book shows how elites, by drawing on the logic of human ingenuity, driven by self-interest rather than mechanical adherence to tradition, and innovating new procedures when it suits them, can enhance governance through appropriate policies, institutions and processes. This book will be invaluable to researchers and students of South Asia and will be of special interest to those studying governance and the rational actor model.

When Rebels Become Stakeholders: Democracy, Agency and Social Change in India
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8178299453; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
When Rebels Become Stakeholders: Democracy, Agency and Social Change in India explores the agency of ordinary men and women in the making of democratic social change in India. The study is specific to India, but the issues that it examines are of wider significance. The authors join the debate on democracy and development on the basis of case studies that showcase the opinions and attitudes of the Indian voter. They assert that mass perception of institutions, policies and processes—so often dismissed as mere false consciousness or as the conditioned reflex of a gullible public, manipulated by the rhetoric of populist politicians—is our only window to the inner dynamics of democracy and social change. The authors have used the public opinion data from three national surveys of the Indian electorate held in 1971, 1996 and 2004 to focus on the political understanding of India’s voters and their leaders. While agency is a much-discussed theme in contemporary social sciences, connecting the rationality of ordinary men and women to explain electoral participation and rapid structural change in the lives of people of this country is specific to this study. This book argues that the cohabitation of democracy and social change in India is not merely incidental or coincidental; rather the two are institutionally linked in a manner that is fundamentally causal, to the extent that the weakening of the one renders the other ineffective. This book would be of interest to researchers and scholars of political science, international relations, democracy, Indian politics, political analysts, sociology, development studies, journalism, comparative politics and public administration.

Copper-Plate Inscriptions of Odisha: A Descriptive Catalogue
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8124607540; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
Odisha is well known for its epigraphical wealth. More than 400 copper-plate grants and 1,000 stone inscriptions ranging from the fourth to the sixteenth century ce have been discovered so far. In this volume, the author has taken extreme care in documenting all the published and unpublished copper-plate grants including the stray plates, spurious charters and the palimpsests. These epigraphs are grouped under different dynasties and the relevant data in each copper-plate inscription have been systematically classified making the volume a descriptive catalogue of the copper-plate inscriptions of Odisha. It, thus, painstakingly furnishes detailed information about the rulers and the beneficiaries, religious persuasion of kings, occasion and purpose of the grants, eras and other astronomical details, officers and persons present at the time of the grants, rights and privileges transferred to the donees, land measures, prevailing currency system of the period, administrative and revenue terms, topographical details, development of language and scripts, and so on. These inscriptions, mostly in Sanskrit, also delineate the system of numeration while specifying the era or days of a month, amount of tax to be paid, land measures, etc. While adopting a comprehensive approach in treating the subject, the book deals with the technique of preparing copper plates for writing the royal deeds; flattening of the metal sheets into rectangular plates, their sizes, positing of the seals, the symbols and legends on the seals, amidst many more pieces of information. This innovative and scholarly work should entice the spirit of students, historians and researchers, especially those who are interested in the history and culture of Odisha. The bibliographical details furnished in the volume will prove to be of immense help to serious scholars working in the field. Printed Pages: 601. 100328

Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789386296306; Softcover; New; 
The modern study of Comparative Politics emerged in the late nineteenth century, and since then has evolved largely due to the research in US universities. Comparative Politics is one of the three core components of political science, the other two being political theory and international relations.

Since then, it has undergone tremendous transformation in terms of its nature and ambit of study.Theoretical Foundations of Comparative Politics analyses in depth the theories and concepts that form the foundation of comparative politics. Concentrating on the study of this sub-discipline in the context of the developing world, this book. Analyses core concepts from a non-Western perspective.Explains new modifications to the study of comparative politics, for example, through the theories of Skocpol and Wallerstein. Analyses various forms of government—federal system, parliamentary and presidential systems.

Go Kiss the World: Life Lessons for the Young Professional
Penguin Portfolio; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0670082309; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
‘Go, kiss the world’ were Subroto Bagchi’s blind mother’s last words to him. These words became the guiding principle of his life. Subroto Bagchi grew up amidst what he calls the ‘material simplicity’ of rural and small-town Orissa, imbibing from his family a sense of contentment, constant wonder, connectedness to a larger whole and learning from unusual sources. From humble beginnings, he went on to achieve extraordinary professional success, eventually co-founding MindTree, one of India’s most admired software services companies. Through personal anecdotes and simple words of wisdom, Subroto Bagchi brings to the young professional lessons in working and living, energizing ordinary people to lead extraordinary lives. Go Kiss the World will be an inspiration to ‘young India’, and to those who come from small-town India, urging them to recognize and develop their inner strengths, thereby helping them realize their own, unique potential.

Zen Garden: Conversations with Pathmakers
Penguin Books India Pvt. Ltd.; Delhi, India; 2013; 067008705X; Softcover; New; 
For the immensely popular column ‘Zen Garden’, which he published in Forbes India for over three years, bestselling business author Subroto Bagchi spoke to some very interesting people. Many, though not all, of the visitors to ‘Zen Garden’ were, like Subroto himself, high-performance entrepreneurs. But the one thing that was common to every guest was that they were pathmakers—rather than choosing to follow the well-trodden path, they had charted new paths that others could tread on. This book features the very best conversations from ‘Zen Garden’, including those with the Dalai Lama, Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, Nandan Nilekani, Aamir Khan, Dr Devi Shetty, Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, Ekta Kapoor, social entrepreneur Harish Hande, Sanjeev Bikhchandani . Deep Kalra , Café Coffee Day’s V.G. Siddhartha, Vikram Bakshi (the man who brought McDonald’s to India) and India’s top winemaker, Rajeev Samant. In their own words, these game changers reveal what it was that made them think differently, what gave them the courage to step off the beaten track, and how they sustained their vision in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. Zen Garden is a book that every young Indian should read.Printed Pages: 344. 103446

Day’s End Stories: Life After Sundown in Small-Town India
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789383260812; Softcover; New; 
The night has a thousand eyes and the day but one, Francis William Bourdillon the nightscape of the Indian metropolis has been eulogized in film and literature. But what of small-town India? Day’s End Stories, through a series of essays, chronicles nightlife in the towns of this country, covering not just dance and drinks, but also night-time activities that fall outside the conventional. Once darkness descends, Amitava Kumar visits the forgotten cultural spaces of Patna and Bettiah, Sumana Roy journeys with women carriers, past Siliguri, to the Indo-Nepal border, Shiladitya Sarkar takes a midnight rickshaw through the firefly-lit lanes of Puducherry and Vinod K. Jose recollects, with awe and longing, the late-evening film screenings in Mananthavady. The writers uncover, at dusk, the topography of small-town India, sprinkled with taverns, temples, cafés and cinema halls. Equally, they delve into the nocturnal public cultures and subcultures of these spaces, their wonders and trappings intact. They ask, how best can the nightlife of a small town be defined? How do social mores and beliefs impact late-evening wanderings? What pursuits are acceptable under the cover of darkness and what kind is deemed strange and subversive? How does the political climate color the hours after sundown? Most importantly, has nightlife here come to define a rather parochial idea of modernity in India, that is attached to the metropolis? Tabish Khair, in a crucial essay in this collection, studies Jejuri and Gaya and attempts answering the last question. He says: ‘The metropolis need not be cosmopolitan, similarly, the small town can be cosmopolitan in its own ways, as I discovered while growing up in Gaya, the interest we had in other spaces and different cultures was often in excess of what I have encountered among some people who have grown up in London or Copenhagen or Delhi. Day’s End Stories wishes to acknowledge precisely this, the cosmopolitanism of small-town India’s nightlife. It impels us to reconsider the metropolitan gaze. 109644

Trans-Himalayan Buddhism: Reconnecting Spaces, Sharing Concerns
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904480; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Trans-Himalayan Buddhism is not simply a cultural spectacle across spaces north and south, east and west of the Himalayas. It is also a subject of interactive behaviour among Buddhist communities who have been dispersed over the Kunlun mountains or the Kashgar markets that have been the meeting points of pilgrims, traders, merchants, envoys, military men, artists and scholar travelers. The northern reach of Buddhism is incomprehensible without reflections on shared histories and common concerns which the book tries to focus on.The ambit of Buddhist studies reflects not only the spiritual and philosophical domain of Buddhism but also a symbiotic relationship between the monastic establishment and protectors of cultural tradition-a trend that one sees in the context of Buddhist revivalist projects in Mongolia and Buryatia. The presence of a Buddhist order in the political realm has revived intellectual debates about the relationship between spiritual and temporal authority. The interface between South Asian and South East Buddhism on the one hand and Central Asian Buddhism on the other is also delicately balanced in Buddhist cultural discourse. The relevance of Buddhism in a globalized world has also given a new direction to the realm of Buddhist studies.This book takes into account the competing discourses of preservation and revival of Buddhism in the trans-Himalayan sector. It not only deals with the cultural ethos that Buddhism represents in this region but also the diverse Buddhist traditions that are strongly entrenched despite colonial intervention. Juxtaposed to the aesthetic variant is the extremely sensitive response of the Buddhist communities in India and Asiatic Russia centred round the issue of displacement. It is this issue of duality of common traditions and fractured identities that has been dealt with in the present volume.Printed Pages: 130. 104317

Genesis of Tribal Extremism in Tripura
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1991; 8121203953; Hardcover; New; New; 
The book embodies the research findings of the militant politics of the state of Tripura. While dealing with the tribal uprisings, the author focuses attention on the burning issues of the TWV insurgency and its aftermath. The basic quest of the author has been not only to find out how to strike a balance between the tribals and non-tribals but also to amongst them. The book is the first attempt of its kind to pin-point the complex problems confronting Tripura even today. The author very earnestly pleads for the widening of our mental horizon and to think more in terms of national interest rather then petty party politics.Printed Pages: 188. 105742

Vayu Mahapurana (An Exhaustive Introduction, Sanskrit Text, English Translation, Notes and Index of Verses), 2 Vols
Chaukhambha Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
A person who has learnt the Vedas and the Upanishads, but has not bothered to study the Puranas, can never be wise. The knowledge of the Puranas supplements that of the Vedas and the Upanishads. As such, the Puranas contain many stories and history. There is no race on Earth that does not have its own history. But the immense volume of the Puranas is unsurpassed anywhere else in the world. The Vayu Purana itself states that the Puranas were originally recited by the great God Brahma and that one has to understand the Puranas if one is to appreciate the Vedas and the Upanishads. Vayu Purana is named because it is believed that it was recited by the Wind-god Vayu. The Vayu Purana has twenty-four thousand shlokas. These are divided into two parts (bhaga)- a first part (purva-bhaga) and a subsequent part (uttara-bhaga). There are one hundred and twelve chapters in Vayu Purana. These chapters describe in details about various solar and lunar dynasties, development of Cosmic Egg, birth of progenies, description of various mountains and sacred rivers, duties of four castes and stages of society, measurement and the respective distance of luminary bodies, the Science of Yoga and Meditation, enumeration of various kings and sages, method of performing Shraddhas and the relative benefits, number of Yugas and Kalpas, description of various continents and sub-continents, the way to ultimate liberation (Moksha) and so on. There are two chapters specifically dedicated to the science of Music and Alamkaras. Vayu Purana presents the most comprehensive details of various dynasties, the names of various kings, their successors as well as their kingdoms. This edition of Vayu Purana in two volumes is the most unique as compared to all other editions published so far from various sources. It includes original Sanskrit text and verse by verse English translation. There is an exhaustive introduction at the beginning of the first volume and an index of all Sanskrit verses at the end of the second volume for ready reference of the scholars and readers.

Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2010; 813210238X; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Skill Training for Social Workers: A Manual, which integrates social development in social work education, responds to the demand of indigenous textbooks and teaching materials for social work educators, scholars and students. Unlike theory books of social work which list the skills required for the practice of social work methods but do not enable the development of these skills, this manual bridges the gap by giving concrete exercises for the development of method-linked skills. Some of its main features are: - Includes theoretical inputs, games and exercises on the theme of understanding perception, self-awareness, sensitivity, communication and working with individuals and groups. - Covers a variety of topics, role plays, songs, case studies, street plays and exercises on self-awareness, self-development, SWOT analyses, communication, goal setting, time management and stress management. - Allows for flexibility to adapt modules to the local realities, drawing from students’ field experiences and using indigenous agency case records or material. This manual carries a continuous discourse on developing interactive work ability in individuals, ensuring the holistic professional development of the trainees. It helps them understand their values and capacities as professionals and equips them for skilled intervention for working at different levels, with a variety of client groups. It facilitates the inculcation of professional and global competencies essential for social workers. It will also be useful to trainers in other fields who seek to develop skills in working with people and their problems. Printed Pages: 308. 031073

Kutiyattam: The Heritage Theatre of India
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8189738828; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
Kutiyattam: The Heritage Theatre of India, is the first major book on this vibrant theatre tradition that existed in India from the times of the Natya Sastra. It traces the history and evolution of Kutiyattam through different ages, its aesthetics and theatre grammar as well as the challenges in its transmission to a new generation of artists and viewers. Kutiyattam is widely acknowledged as the only living link to India’s ancient theatrical tradition. While its origins are hazy, it is said to have an unbroken history of around two thousand years, combining old Sankrit theatre with the regional forms of Kerala. It has its own distinctive theatrical conventions and improvisations, with highly sophisticated facial expressions and a fluent vocabulary of gestures. Kutiyattam elaborates action by extending the performance score to heights of imaginative fancy. Ever since it ventured outside Kerala’s temple-theatres in the 1950s, it has been appreciated by a wider circle of connoisseurs, and challenged by shifting systems of patronage. This book discusses the theory and practice of the art form and aims to introduce Kutiyattam to a larger readership. It includes the translation of the performance manual of ‘Asokavanikanakam’, from Saktibhadra’s play Ascharyachudamani, as an illustrative example.

An era, when the flavour of British rule was still strong upon our palates. Maharajas and beautiful Maharanis were still not yet tales of the yore...a new breed of men had emerged...the office babus, clad in crisp dhoti and kurta with a flair for British English. Beral babu a clerk in a discrete bank was well settled into an uncomplicated and confortable life. His wife Binodini, sweet natured and ever accommodating...her whole life revolved around serving others and making her husband happy. Life for them was like the calm surface of a village pond...no ripples...no disturbances but for a bunch of ghosts who decide otherwise. Destiny changed hands one afternoon when a bond of friendship blossomed and this opened portals into the lives of the royal Raibahadurs. Lady Sreelatas horse is spooked by a dark mysterious figure. The Berals alone leave for Darimbari. They are received by Patta Nath and the fierce Khan. The majestic war horse Nestor draws the royal carriage to the Grande Hindol Kothi. The Maharaja and the beautiful Maharani of Darimbari welcome them with open arms. Binodini enters the maze to bring back sacred water from the fountain of Gautama, this saves the Maharanis life. Beral babu leaves on a quest with the handsome and dashing prince...to save the elder prince who had been kidnapped long ago by the demons of the underworld. Dolly D. a sharp shooting reporter is hot on the trails of the mysterious disappearances from the train; she knows somehow that these are connected to the world famous writer. Investigations by the DCP Avinash Bakshi reveal nothing except for the puzzling photos on Dollys camera. On such dark nights they say, the train still screeches to a halt...footsteps are heard and passengers are known to disappear. As for Beral babu and Binodini both of them display such courage and wisdom beyond extraordinaire. Fame, wealth and immortality were just rewards for their good deeds. What they actually earned as experience from their friends beyond this mortal world...changed their world forever.Printed Pages: 172. 104323

Revisiting 1956: B. R. Ambedkar and States Reorganisation
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125055142; Hardcover; New; New; 
When the Indian identity was in its embryo, he feared that fostering cultural identities would result in separate nationalities. By 1953, after the formation of Andhra State, he pointed at the lack of proper thinking that had gone into the merger. In 1956, when the States Reorganisation Commission submitted its report, he identified its flaws, and famously laid down his ‘One state, one language’ principle.The speeches, tracts and articles that Ambedkar produced on these lines were soon forgotten. And now, as new states are being formed, Ambedkar’s works find renewed relevance. When he called the merger of Telangana and Telugu-speaking areas of Madras Presidency as ‘artificial’, Ambedkar showed remarkable vision that administrators can learn from. In laying criteria for reorganisation of states—viability, size, economic feasibility, equality, federal balance, and the divisive issue of language—he has already addressed concerns that the contemporary common man now asks.Printed Pages: 256. 101933

Proto-Historic Pottery of Indus Valley Civilisation: Study of Painted Motifs
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8124600309; Hardcover; New; New; 
In the 1920s was found one of the world’s oldest, most mysterious civilizations: the Indus Valley. Which, in view of the relatively more recent archaeological evidence, could possibly have evolved from a much older, indigenous culture: of about nine millennia ago — some 6000 years before the growth of Mesopotamian urbanism or about 2000 years before the Egyptian’s. Among a variety of excavated material remains, pottery affords a significant clue that influences archaeologists’ conclusions.Despite many a scholar’s avowed fascination for the pottery of the Indian subcontinent — since John Marshall’s days, Dr. Satyawadi’s book becomes the first-ever, exclusive study of its art motifs: from the earliest times to 1750 bc Marshalling a whole diversity of painted-pottery motifs: from potsherds, from excavatory reports, and from as many as twenty archaeological museums of India, it explores the genesis of popular themes/forms and how they developed from their most primitive character to mature Harappan period — with sharp focus on their creative purpose, stylistic/formal variants and their spatial-temporal parameters. Also surveying extensively the painted pottery of Indus Valley: of both pre- and post-Harappan cultures, the author painstakingly classifies art motifs into their different genres: religious, ritualistic, decorative, superstitious, and personal. And into their different forms too, like geometrical, floral, faunal, other.In her effort to probe the beginnings of pre-Harappan pottery motifs, the artist in Dr. Satyawadi visualizes their continuity not only in mature Harappan cultures, but even in contemporary folk and tribal art of India: almost in their pristine, primitive form -- keeping alive, from generation to generation, an insistent, inherently powerful tradition, despite the ravages of time. The author also tries to trace the linkages between the painted motifs (on pottery) of Indus Valley and other old-world cultures, notably, Mesopotamian, Egyptian, Afghan, Iranian, and Baluchi.With one hundred thirty six photographic reproductions, this study is supplemented by over 650 line-drawings which, (all beautifully copied by the author herself straight from museum exhibits), try to capture the panorama of protohistoric art motifs in their essential variety and pristine splendour.

The Heritage of Buddhist Pala Art
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8173052395; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 22 Cms x 28 Cms 
Buddhist art was not created primarily for aesthetic considerations. Most of the works of art were devoted to the revealing of the divine personality of the gods and goddesses. The present book attempts to present a sketch of Buddha's life as well as well-known and important gods and goddess as represented in the art of eastern India of which the Pala art was an important product. The present study will, it is hoped, unfold many unknown facts of Pala art to students of art. Besides, some of the regional factors are found determining the art forms of the extensive region of eastern India where the Pala art made itself felt in a big way. An impetus was given to new iconographic forms which influenced the Buddhist art of the neighbouring countries such as Nepal and also beyond, like Kashmir. Wherever possible, the degrees of correspondence between the textual descriptions and iconic representations have been duty noted. The Heritage of Buddhist Pala Art, is thus an important step towards iconographic studies, is an expression of author's concern and appreciation for the traditional indigenous art. These works of art, devotion and faith, though deprived of their immediate context, make a significant contribution to the field of sculptural art of the last phase of Buddhist art in India. How passionately the author is involved in the subject, is clear from this book which gives a deep insight into his pursuits. His detailed observations of progression in the creation of Buddhist works of art and richly/profusely illustrated plates help one to understand, recognize and experience them as the masterpieces of art and also as objects of everyday worship. The book is an attempt to explore new images, new forms and new icons and also understand them in their proper time and space contexts - pan-Indian and regional as well as pre-Pala scenario. Students, scholars and general readers will find this remarkable book of immense use. Printed Pages: 317 with illustrations. 002884

Mira and the Mahatma
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 067005805X; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
It is 1925 and India's struggle for independence is in disarray, impeded by factionalism among its leaders and rising incidents of communal disharmony across the country. Meanwhile, having withdrawn himself from active politics, the Mahatma is in the Sabarmati ashram in Gujarat, immersed in what he considers the most important undertaking of his life: the creation of an ideal community that is dedicated to the highest standards of self-discipline, tolerance and austerity. Into this world comes Madeline Slade, the daughter of a British admiral, who has set her heart on being Bapu's greatest disciple. Thus begins an extraordinary association between two individuals driven by distinct passions. For Gandhi, true spirituality lies in `self-rule'—a mastery of the self that liberates the being from all forms of craving, physical and emotional—and total dedication to practical work in service of society; Mira, as Gandhi renames Madeline, believes that the path to ultimate truth and perfection is complete surrender to the human embodiment of the Eternal Spirit, and this she perceives in Gandhi himself. It is not long before Mira's all-consuming desire to serve Bapu translates into a desperate need to be close to him at all times and clashes head on with the exacting moral and spiritual codes he has laid down for himself and those around him. And as the self-doubting Mahatma, seeking to distance himself from Mira yet loath to let go of her love, wrestles with his inner phantoms, Mira's life begins to take another dramatic turn... In his bold, fictionalized exploration of this complex and tumultuous relationship, Sudhir Kakar displays once again his skill at handling delicate material with remarkable sensitivity, instinctive empathy and high imagination.

Indian Love Stories
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174362797; Softcover; New; 
An anthology of contemporary love stories that depicts how disgust can be as much part of erotic love as violence, physical and mental.Disgust can be as much part of erotic love as violence, although the evocation of disgust has rarely reached the extremes portrayed in the fiction of Marquis de Sade. In de Sade's stories, erotic unions are routinely preceded, accompanied or followed by the smearing and eating of faeces, drinking of or bathing in urine, the licking of spit and vomit, a revelling in bodily odours -all in the service of heightening the excitement of erotic union. Violence, too, physical or mental, is part of many contemporary depictions of love. (From the author's Introduction. Printed Pages: 128. 108539

Comparative Politics and Crisis of Governance: The Russian Conundrum
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380177663; Hardcover; New; New; 
Democracy as a political system, its creation and evolution and implications on the people and the states has been the dominant subject matter of the comparative politics in the last five decades. The litmus test of such explanations has been the societies undergoing political transition, switching over from authoritarian political systems to democratic ones. This book is an attempt to critically analyze the theories which have come up in the case of post-Soviet states’ political transition began after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The book argues that democratization should be seen as a broader phenomenon with the objective of building an equal and just social order. Secondly, the dilemma of explaining democracy in theory and in practice can be better explained with the analysis of the nature of state i.e. who governs and how. Thirdly, the nature of any state should be measured on the principles of democratic governance. Here three major indicators of democratic governance have been selected: participation, transparency, and accountability. Analysing Russia within this research framework the book argues that despite having all the capabilities to be a strong state the Russian state has been facing acute crisis of governance being reflected in violent separatist movements, violation of constitutional laws and increasing crime rate. A major reason behind the crisis of governance in Russia is the lack of application of principles of democratic governance at various levels of transition: from the constitution making process to implementation of welfare and other public policies.Printed Pages: 176. 103205

Disinvestment in India: Policies, Procedures, Practices
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2004; 076199825X; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 5.5" x 8.5" 
In India the path chosen to reform the public sector has been to first deregulate and liberalise the economy and then to privatise public sector enterprises. Debates have raged on since then on: whether reform of state-owned enterprises is necessary; the choice of strategy and method; and the social and economic consequences of such policies. Sudhir Naib has incisively analysed, from a theoretically informed perspective, crucial aspects of this topical issue. Among the important aspects he discusses are: - Whether the failure of Indian public enterprises has been exaggerated. - Can public enterprises be reformed from within or are they intrinsically inefficient? - Is a change in ownership the only solution? - Impact of ownership and competition on the efficiency of Indian enterprises. - Methods of privatisation and the experience of other countries. - Impact of divestiture on performance of disinvested enterprises. Dr Naib provides a firm-level analysis through case studies of seven partly disinvested enterprises (SAIL, BHEL, IOC, ITI, BEL, BEML, NFL). Impact of post-reform policies on enterprises is analysed in terms of changes in market share, cost structure, profitability and work culture. The strategic response of these enterprises is examined in terms of cost reduction measures, change in product portfolio, restructuring, innovation and institutional arrangement for diagnosing environmental changes.

Leela was scorned and thrown away like a fly from a glass of milk by a villainous, greedy and a selfish Menon. She vents her fury on him by seeking the ultimate revenge a woman can come up with. A story told by a fiend who is first just a witness to the bizarre goings-on between Leela and her divorced husband, but later becomes a part of the dirty quagmire. Both of them take recourse to tantriks, plot murders that don't work, and in the end an exasperated and frustrated Leela takes an unheard of course. The friend initially looks on in an indifferent and uninterested way at a marriage gone wrong. But he too is drawn into the drama as both sides dangle the ultimate bribe - money. His scruples are thrown to the winds as the lure of filthy lucre traps him in the web woven by a scheming Leela. Printed Pages: 175. 108481
