India's Liberalisation Experience: Hostage to the WTO?
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0761936572; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book reviews India`s liberalisation measures in the last decade, in cognisance of the impact of the country`s World Trade Oraganisation (WTO) membership on the same. The collection of articles by subject experts recognises that the changes mandated by WTO membership are but one of the three-pronged liberlisation measures that the country has been subjected to—in the external, domestic (industrial policies) and financial sectors. The lucid analyses bear out that rather than being WTO-induced, external liberalisation of most sectors has been part of India`s general economic reform programme, having been shaped by domestic compulsions. India`s Liberalisation Experience: Hostage to the WTO? also analyses how the country has coped with and benefited from its obligations and rights as a WTO member. It attempts to evaluate the impact of the domestic reforms on the country`s economy and the implications thereof on its performance as a WTO negotiator. It tries to dispel the myths regarding the impact of international trade negotiations on India`s ongoing reform processes and its developmental and poverty/livelihood concerns. Thus, it will appeal not only to WTO experts, but also to trade policy analysts, academicians, research students, policy-makers, scholars and economists. Printed Pages: 416. 028564

The Writer's Feast: Food and the Cultures of Representation
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8125041958; Hardcover; New; New; 
Sharing food, eating salt, breaking bread, raising a toast, picnics in the wild, formal dinners—all have certain ideological, political and social significances. Some foods are taboo, whereas others endow the eater with purity. The means of preparing or processing food in different cultures each symbolise something. The Writer’s Feast is a collection of essays that discuss the various symbolic representations associated with food. The essays in this volume show how food is a system of signs through which human societies give meanings to the material world they inhabit. The book is divided into four thematic sections. The first section eating cultures looks at social practices and systems relating to food and its consumption. The second section gendering food, focuses on the gender implications of cooking and serving food. In the third section, migrancy, diaspora and the cosmopolitan gourmet, the overwhelming importance of the symbolic function of food is discussed in immigrant narratives, as cuisine comes to be associated with the lost or abandoned homeland of the refugee or migrant. The last section of this book, the body and its limits, looks into the implications of excessive appetites on the human body and what drives them. It also speaks of healthy eating practices. By way of contrast, it also examines what happens to human beings, their bodies when driven to the limit by extreme physical conditions or by famine and want. The Contributors featuring in this book are scholars from all over the world.Printed Pages: 256. 101867

Globalization and Money: A Global South Perspective
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125051120; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is about how men and women, particularly the poor and the unbanked in the global South, use money in ways that empower them and their families. Money as a medium of relationships across cultures is at the center of this inclusive story of globalization. It includes interconnected markets and half the world that is unbanked, particularly women. Globalization and Money covers new and old currencies and ways of banking and payments. Men and women’s banking patterns connect with the way they display their management of money in the joint family or nuclear household. Migrants send money home to show they care for their families and communities left behind. Yet these remittances are worth more than three times official development assistance. The mobile phone transforms communication, as well as ensuring people in the Global South can send money instantaneously to their family in the village.Printed Pages: 248. 101807

Policy Options to Achieve Food Security in South Asia
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8175968095; Hardcover; New; New; 
Agriculture in South Asia and many other parts of the world is apparently caught in a low equilibrium trap. The features of this trap are low productivity of staples supply shortfalls higher prices low returns to farmers product diversification causing further shortage of staple food. The question of food security has a number of dimensions that go beyond production availability and demand for food. Food availability does not ensure food security. Thus distribution and access of population to food is equally important for food security. Food availability can be achieved through better distribution mechanisms and alternatively through imports to ensure food security. This book identifies major issues of food security in the South Asian countries. Each chapter of the book throws light on issues such as initiatives and policies taken up in a particular country to achieve the goal of food security and also critically evaluates the effectiveness of these policies. Discussing the SAARC food bank to ensure food security in South Asia the book also suggests measures to overcome the identified current constraints and make the policies more effective.Printed Pages: 242. 101420

Indira Gandhi: The Final Chapter
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8189738895; First Edition; Paperback; New; 18 x 22 Cm 
Indira Gandhi is perhaps one of the few Indian leaders whose recognition factor has not diminished with time. Her legacy, both in terms of politics and progeny continue to impact the future of this country. In Indira Gandhi—The Final Chapter Suraj ‘Eskay’ Sriram, through his cartoons and illustrations, presents a snapshot of the Indian political and social scene at the time. Presented with tongue-in-cheek humour and cynicism, ‘Eskay’ has an uncanny knack of getting to the heart of the matter with just a few swift strokes of his pen. He brings to light some of the serious problems which faced (and continue to face) India in a witty and lighthearted matter. What better way to reacquaint ourselves with the good, the bad, the ugly—and the humourous!—events that took place during the ‘final chapter’ of Indira’s reign?

West Bengal's Jyoti Basu: A Political Profile
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1992; 8121204208; Hardcover; New; New; 
Among the present Chief ministers in the different regions of India, Jyoti Basu happen to be holding the reins of power in region for the longest period at a stretch. He is unparallel in many ways. His life history indicates how being committed to destroy a system one can still become an upholder of that system. Right now Jyoti Basu has become the ?great mediator? of our national politics. However, the purpose of this book is not to indulge in unalloyed adulation or biased panegyrics born out of an overwhelming infatuation but to present in a highly readable and thought-provoking manner a balanced and level-headed, impartial and thoroughgoing evaluation of his regime for the last 14 years, highlighting both the positive and negative contours of this long period with the help of a massive amount of carefully collected data : historical, economic, political and statistical. In various chapters the author has wielded his pen almost like a sword and made a shrewd and sardonic, insightful and intriguing and also perhaps a heretical and iconoclastic anaysis of the jig-saw puzzle which is known as leftist politics in West Bengal or for that matter, India, at the present moment.Printed Pages: 268. 105760

India-Uzbek Relations: Past, Present and Future
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380502762; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
India has been so historically linked with Central Asia that the region is known in Indian diplomatic parlance as its ‘extended neighbour’ or an ‘immediate and strategic neighbourhood’. In this paradigm Uzbekistan, sharing a common boundary with other Central Asian Republics of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan, occupies a crucial place. British colonialism interrupted this historic link between India and Central Asia. During the Soviet regime, too, the interaction between the sub-continent and, what we now call the CIS states, was tempered through Moscow. But even within these constraints India and Uzbekistan retained a special relationship. The post-Cold War period, however, opened up new possibilities of direct contacts between India and Uzbekistan, especially when the latter reoriented itself to Asia and not Russia. It is in this context that the current Indo-Uzbek relations need to be seen. This paper tries to address that very need.Printed Pages: 22. 104370

Sur's Ocean: Poems from the Early Tradition
Harvard University Press/IBD; Noida, India; 2015; 0674427831; Softcover; New; 13 x 20 Cm 
Surdas has been regarded as the epitome of artistry in old Hindi religious poetry from the end of the sixteenth century, when he lived, to the present day. His fame rests upon his remarkable refashioning of the widely known narrative of the cowherd deity Krishna and his lover Radha into lyrics that are at once elegant and approachable. Surdass popularity led to the proliferation, through an energetic oral tradition, of poems ascribed to him, known as the gar.Surs ocean-poems from the early tradition presents a dramatically new edition in Devanagari script and a lyrical English translation. This remarkable volume reconstructs the early tradition of Surdass verse-the 433 poems that were known to the singers of Surdass own time as his. Here Surdas stands out with a clarity never before achieved.The Murty classical library of India makes available original texts and modern English translations of the masterpieces of literature and thought from across the whole spectrum of Indic languages over the past two millennia in the most authoritative and accessible formats on offer anywhere.

The Intelligent Person's Guide to Good Governance
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8178299313; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
As good governance becomes more and more important with societies all over adjusting to the reality of the emerging world, the good governance discourse paradoxically seems to be exhausting itself. This is the time to revive it. The Intelligent Person’s Guide to Good Governance is unique in that it takes the discourse on governance beyond its self-inflicted narrow perspective by providing an integrated treatment of various relevant issues, for example, the role of the state or the idea of civil society. In carrying out a lucid analysis of a fluid concept, this book offers a ‘one-stop’ resource for understanding the subject. The central argument of the book that any serious engagement with good governance must go beyond an exclusive reliance on the state or the market and explore different modes of partnerships, including public participation, is relevant and indeed timely in the present crisis. Is there one book on good governance that you can read to acquire the basics on the subject? The Intelligent Person’s Guide to Good Governance is written with just this question in mind. It is written for all those who may be interested in exploring the subject for academic or practical purposes. Surprisingly, in the vast literature that exists on good governance, there is no such book, nationally or internationally. Printed Pages: 212. 028585

Clinical Antomy in Ayurveda (Banaras Ayurveda Series: 45)
Chowkhamba Sanskrit Series Office; Varanasi, India; 2007; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Authors realized the need to write a Book on ?Clinical Anatomy in Ayurveda?, when they were involved in teaching Anatomy to the post graduate students of Sharir Rachna at state Ayurvedic College, Lucknow. They not only felt the need to write this book but also felt nice to write a book on the subject. Having realized this fact, they started tracing the Insight vision concerning Clinical Anatomy available in Ayurvedic literature like that in Charaka, Sushruta, Vagabhat and Sharangadhar Samhita. They succeeded in their attempt and could find out rich subject matter concerning clinical anatomy in Sanskrit quotations mentioned in these texts. Though in many diseased conditions Nidan and Samprapti have been elaborately discussed based on Tridosh theory. But the detailed change in the structural pattern of Anatomy involved in the disease has not been highlighted. Therefore authors have made strenuous efforts to correlate the effects of vitiated Dosh on the diseased organs and their neighbouring structures. Therefore every Ayurvedic professional must know something about the anatomical changes or variations, which follow the process of samprapti before and after the onset of Roga (Disease). He should also know what changes have actually happened at the anatomical level before he plans Chikitsa of a Chikitsa Purush. Because of these lacuna in the knowledge, authors resolved to write this book not only for graduates or postgraduates students but also for Ayurvedic clinicians. Authors are happy to present this book in the hands of Ayurvedic scholars and hope that the book will prove most useful. The present book is the most exploring book on the human anatomy from Ayurvedic point of the view while correlating the same with the modern knowledge acquired over the period of time. The book is one of the most delightful treats for an inquisitive mind wishing to understand the anatomy of the human body with the deep rooted knowledge as described in Ayurvedic texts by great scholars of all times including Sushurta Samhita Charak Samhita, Ashtang Hridaya and others. This book is an earnest attempt to explore the knowledge to its deepest origin based on the principle of ?believe in what you see? or in other words how Ayurvedic scientists look into the body, what they conceived, perceived and observed. The Author has critically taken not of all the descriptions and after correlating the same with his own experienced acquired over five decades of his association with Ayurveda and has tried to present the most impartial and acceptable view regarding the mysteries of human body. The whole book has been prepared on the basis of different disciplines of human anatomy such as Garbh Sharir, Sira Dhamni Sharir, Srotas Sharir, Asthi Sharir, Marma Sharir, Peshi Sharir, Indriya Sharir, Tantrika Sharir, etc. This chapterwise description is again important for graduate and postgraduate level scholars of Ayurveda. From the examination point of view of the book covers the syllabus approved by the Central Council of Indian Medicine, Delhi and a number of other Universities and Colleges imparting the education in the faculty of Ayurveda. Attempt has been made to provide a systematic stream of knowledge which may be able to develop scientific intent in the minds of the readers. The author feels that with the changing global scenario and transformation of the world into global village, it becomes imperative to come up with an authorartive text on Ayurvedic, which may be able to provide opportunity to those coming from non-Hindi speaking regions of India as well as from abroad. Understanding of human anatomy is the very basis for initiating a study into any healthcare system. Ayurveda is no exception, however there has been an earnest requirement for providing A Good Ayurvedic text book on human Anatomy with pictorial presentation. The present book fills the void.Printed Pages: 208 with 108 pages of plates. 100832

The History of Education in Ancient India c. 3000 BC to AD 1192
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8121509769; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
In Ancient India education was religion and religion as education. However, we have very little idea till now about how our education system in Ancient India had emerged out of our religious scriptures, how it had changed in response to the changing conditions in our past society and how it had contributed to the development of a prosperous and glosrious civilisation which has now become our proud heritage. Based on a critical study of our religious scriptures, Vedic, Buddhist and Jaina, as available in English, German and French translations, this book attempts to delineate these developments. Written largely for a non-specialist audience in India and abroad, this book will be useful not only for the students of history but also for those interested in our Ancient Indian history and culture.

Dalhousie in India 1848-56: A Study of His Social Policy as Governor-General
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1975; 8121504406; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
Scholarly interest in Dalhousie has for a long time concentrated on his wars and annexations, conquest and consolidation, and his responsibility for the Mutiny which swept the Indian sky in 1857. Few know about his care for the people of India and his concern for their moral and material upliftment. Drawing his inspiration from a utilitarian philosophy, he strove for its fulfillment in India. He reformed the educational system of India, improved the position of women in the society and introduced railways, electric telegraph, and uniform postage, which he described, in his final minute in 1856, as 'the three great engines of social improvement.' Only the posterity knows how prophetic this description was! Yet when he left India, he felt, he could have achieved more in this direction, if only he was blessed with a good health and given a longer tenure as Governor-General. It was his regret that he could not complete the various measures he had initiated as part of his mission. Nothing reflects this more poignantly than the remark he made to his friend, Couper, on hearing of Canning's selection as his successor in August 1855. 'I shall mourn over many things undone, or only half-done, when I go.' This work throws fresh light on the significance of Dalhousie's reign in the evolution of modern India.

The History of Education in Modern India 1757–2012, presents an overview of the education system in India from its colonial beginnings through Independence till the present day. It examines crucial issues that have shaped India’s education system, like the introduction of English education, the Education Despatch of 1854, the genesis of Curzon’s university reform of 1899–1905, and the education policy of post-Independence India. In addition, this fourth, revised edition includes the latest discussions and debates around the major changes planned for and already implemented in the education sector, including the recommendations of the National Knowledge Commission, the Yashpal Committee Report on the functioning of bodies in higher and technical education, and enactment of the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009. These are analysed against the background of the huge socioeconomic and political changes brought about in post-liberalisation India. Meticulously researched and lucidly written by a leading authority on the subject, this book is essential reading for students at the graduate and postgraduate levels and anyone with an interest in the history and present state of education in India.Printed Pages: 416. 101830

Modern Indian Short Stories
ImprintOne; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8188861065; First Edition; Paperback; New; 120 x 175 Mm 
Despite there being such brilliant practitioners of the craft in almost every Indian language, the short story has failed to generate the kind of interest in contemporary times that the novel did. Yet, there have been writers in India as well as in the West who have used the medium of short story both as a means of entertainment and socio-political protest; used it as a vehicle for dissent; for dissemination of knowledge and information; for understanding human psychology, attitude and behaviour patterns. The present anthology has not been governed by any specific theme, concern or yardstick, except, perhaps, brilliance of the craft. It also represents the unity in diversity in another way. It draws upon the curious momentum in human psychology. It is replete with different shades of human emotions, which in turn are also universal. No two writers seem to use the same narrative style, and yet the narrative pattern is uniquely Indian. Contents Pre-Preface Preface to the Second Edition Introduction 1. Death of a City 2.

Origins of Civilization: New Light and Fresh Perpective on Ancient History
Bharatiya Kala Prakashan; Delhi, India; 2011; 8180902730; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book was initially conceived after some starting archaeological discoveries began to be made in the second half of the twentieth century. At the same time, a new computer software was developed, which could verify astronomical dates given in many ancient texts. Once the astronomical data was verified to be correct, it added to the overall credibility of the concerned texts. This work takes cognizance of some of the new data, and discoveries, and attempts to correct some clearly, unacceptable concepts about ancient history, handed down to us from the colonial period of the 18, 19 and 20 centuries. In doing so, the authors have also tried to show the various pathos of cultural development that had taken place prior to the current era of our history. Indeed they could claim to even show the initial origins of human civilization as it exists today.This book arrives at some challenging conclusions, and claims to solve puzzles of our ancient history, that had been induced in the textbooks of the colonial period. It also calls for the cleansing of political and religions prejudices from the pages of earlier historical works, which had scant attention to developments considered to be politically unsavoury. This work calls for the recognition of truths about our ancient past, even if they had not been favoured in the past. Printed Pages: 304 with 18 plates & 94 figures. 110672

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1996; 8121503027; Second Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
In this short treatise on Sikh Ethics, the Adi Granth has been taken as the basic and main sourcebook of the Sikh moral-code. The path of life enunciated by the Sikh Gurus is the path of self-realisation or perfectionism; it is neither self-gratification or hedonism nor self-denial or rationalism. Emphasis in Sikh Ethics is laid on the practice of godly qualities. Their observance makes a human being godlike. The field of the body is to be cultivated for truthful life and spiritual advancement. All the senses are to be harnessed properly and the virtues of body, speech and mind are to be inculcated. The discipline enunciated by the Sikh Gurus is a universal discipline and requires the disciple to perform his worldly duties alongwith his spiritual progress; he has not to become a one-sided personality. He has to remain alert on all the three planes, i.e., physical, mental and spiritual. The Sikh Ethics, in practice, brings before us an ideal person, thoroughly balanced in physical, mental and spiritual cultures. Whereas he works as a healthy constituent of society, he also rises to spiritual zenith. In him, we find an exact combination of action, knowledge and devotion. Printed Pages: 96. 021112

The complete life of the Guru has been presented through two sources, viz., Bachittar Natak, an autobiography of the Guru upto AD 1696 and Sri Sur Sobha by the court-poet Sainapat, who completed his work in AD 1771, three years after the passing away of the Guru. The ideals of the Guru are revealed through the anecdotes of his life given in Sau Sakhi and Parchian Sewa Das, through the injunctions, Rahat Namas recorded by Bhai Prahlad Singh, Bhai Nand Lal, Bhai Desa Singh, Bhai Chaupa Singh and Bhai Daya Singh, and through the poetic compositions of the great preceptor which include Jap Sahib, Chaupai, Ten Sawayyas, Shabad Hazare, Zafar Nama, and Fateh Nama. These works have been rendered into English by the author himself. Thus this book brings forth the personality of the Guru through his own sayings and reveals him as a great reformer, litterateur, spiritual leader and an unparalleled warrior.

Quit Smoking: Why and How
Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8189766295; Softcover; New; 
Nobody knows why Dinosaurs became extinct? A joke says they started smoking. It is the causal entity for most diseases. Most people start smoking by way of fashion before it becomes a habit. This explains why role models should not make a public display of their habits that have dangerous consequences for the health of the youth. Once addiction develops, it becomes extremely difficult to quit. People then do not mind even being pushed away from nosmoking areas whenever their urge to be deviant gets the better of them.Knowing the way smoking interacts with our body and the adverse impact it produces will perhaps help even the diehard advocates of individual freedom to get rid of this scourge. This is all the more necessary since the public space for smokers is shrinking day by day as the society is becoming more conscious. Dr Jindal’s book is based on findings backed by research. He makes a brilliant analysis of the problem and suggests measures to quit. Coming from a specialist in chest and lung diseases, this book aims to touch a chord with those who want to quit but fail every time like Mark Twain. 107259

Handbook of Law, Women, and Employment: Policies, Issues, Legislation, and Case Law
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2009; 0195699416; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Despite innumerable laws and regulations to protect the interests of women at work, there is much cause for concern about actual conditions on the ground. Women comprise about 30 per cent of the total workforce in India, according to the National Commission on labour. This figure does not reflect the reality of the disproportionate burden of unpaid labour on women and girl children. Women’s labour is also not reflected in statistics because huge numbers work in the informal and home-based sectors, and as irregular and casual workers. This handbook examines gender friendly provisions of the Constitution of India and all major legislation relating to women’s employment. On the basis of archival as well as field research, Mediratta contends that existing legal measures are either not implemented or are inadequate for meeting the challenges posed by the fast-changing economic environment today. He demonstrates how vast numbers of women in India face problems of low income, unequal pay, lack of access to legal aid and advice, poor working conditions, long working hours, insecurity of tenure, as well as social and sexual harassment. This handbook is a veritable treasure trove of data on critical issues, including the enforcement of the Minimum Wages Act, wage rates, maternity benefits paid, time spent on paid and unpaid activity, and women workers in rural and urban areas. It also covers the evolution of government policy on empowering women, and the role of other bodies such as the National Commission for Women. 033756

Hindu Places of Pilgrimage in India: A Study in Cultural Geography
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8121508975; Second Indian Edition; Cloth; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
Combining historical analysis with his own fieldwork, Dr. Bhardwaj not only established the importance of the institution of pilgrimage in Indian history and the persistence of similar distribution patterns of sacred places over long periods, but also furnished the normative background for contemporary practices. He is concerned with the relationship of the rank-order of a shrine to its degree of sanctity, kind of deity, and caste and motivation of the pilgrim. Using both objective statistical surveys and the pilgrims' subjective perceptions (as reflected in a special questionnaire), he posits the existence of two models of religious circulation: a "general pattern" characteristic of the pilgrimages of the religiously-oriented upper castes to all-India and supra-regional shrines in pursuit of religious merit, and a "specific pattern" more characteristic of lower-caste visits to local and regional shrines for specific, practical purposes. Unlike earlier writers on the subject, Mr. Bhardwaj examines both the historical and the contemporary patterns of pilgrimage at various levels-pan-Hindu, supra-regional, sub-regional, and local.

Interrogating India's Modernity: Democracy, Identity, and Citizenship
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2013; 0198092075; Hardcover; New; New; 
Over the last four decades, Indian society has undergone significant changes in terms of its structure, processes, and dynamics of social institutions. This process of change, however, has not followed predictable directions. While modern institution of democracy and the idea of citizenship have gradually become popular, ethnic identities and religious beliefs have remained strong. Even when old identities persist, India has witnessed the rise of new identities and aspirations common to the modern times. What does it mean to be modern in India? How do `pre-modern` identities negotiate with the process of rapid social change? How do different sections of society participate in the emerging India? The volume seeks to answer some of these questions by dealing with issues ranging from social class, urban spaces, global branding, changing social hierarchies, and health care to the dynamics of Indian democracy, civil society, religion and politics, and the violence of law. Dipankar Gupta is among the distinguished social scientists who have shaped the way sociology has evolved and is taught and practiced in India. This collection of essays by commentators on modern Indian society brings together the key thematic concerns of Gupta`s several decades-long scholarship, and goes beyond his work on the dynamics of India`s engagements with modernity. Charting new perspectives and debates, the essays will be of great value to those interested in sociology, social anthropology, and politics in contemporary India. Printed Pages: 356. 110228
