2903 Aseem Singh Guru
The Red Stamp
Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789382711193; Softcover; New; 
The book, set against the backdrop of the onset of a civil war, is the story of a young boy, Keev, who discovers the vagaries and purpose of life in the most unexpected of situations. The protagonists of the book must overcome the tussle between their dangerous circumstances and their instinctive judgment to come out unscathed during the trials that they are faced with. As the forces on either side move in for what they determine to be the final debilitating offensive to bring the war to a close, they are both caught up in a bizarre swap of positions. The commander of the Alliance and the rebels, Cantilly and Bilal respectively, recognize this but are also resigned to it. The novel communicates the repercussions of neo-colonialist conflicts on the quotidian intellect of an individual and society, and its futility. Printed Pages: 268. 107229

Lyrical and tranquil, the stories in this collection revisit the life we live in the fast-paced world but forget to appreciate, and remember the joys of our everyday existence and shelved dreams.

The Regional Roots of Developmental Politics in India: A Divided Leviathan
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0195685113; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book argues that the success or failure of India as a developmental state cannot be attributed to policies of the central government alone. They are the combined products of central–local interactions and political choices made by the regional elites. Regional elites insert their agendas into the central framework—modifying and circumventing policy. The author re-evaluates national developmental trajectories differently and stresses the need to evolve a disaggregated, multilevel framework to understand economic policy, development, and globalization. Through in-depth analyses of Gujarat, West Bengal, and Tamil Nadu, the author presents two main arguments: sub-national developmental states can co-exist with the overarching national state and, these sub-national states are the products of struggle with a dominant centre, and shaped by regional political competition. Globalization makes these interventions even more crucial as local actors modify and reorder global priorities for regional ends. The author tests her thesis by studying four other large nation-states—China, Brazil, the former Soviet Union and democratic Russia. She demonstrates that in each of these countries, regional elites interact with central rulers and significantly influence national policy. 019692

2909 Asghar Ali Engineer
Islam Restructuring Theology
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789380828640; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
The author argues forcefully, supported ably by citations from the scriptures as well as their interpretation by scholars, how Islam has by and large been misinterpreted as a code of regression. From explaining how banking is allowed by the religion to the redundancy of the burqah, from providing the real definition of kafir to enumerating the rights of married and divorced partners in a couple, from putting jihad in the correct perspective to questioning the authenticity of any story that goes in the name of Hadith… Asghar Ali Engineer offers an issue-by-issue rebuttal of the uneducated notion that Muslims are an obscurantist lot. Of course, he has no kind words for the ulema that earn the faith a bad name; he might well have stuck his neck out to invite their ire by lambasting their tendency to interpret the Qur'an in the most unlikely, yet convenient, manner that suits a patriarchal, male chauvinist and sectarian mindset. Neither Allah nor His Prophet, the author insists, would approve of the injustice a motley group of monopolyists in the faith have unleashed on humanity. For all practical purposes, Islam is as modern as it gets.Printed Pages: 236. 104827

2910 Asghar Ali Engineer
Rational Approach to Islam
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8121207258; Hardcover; New; New; 
There are gross misunderstandings about Islam among Muslims as well as non-Muslims. There are several stereotypes about Islam which have got wide currency. Some orthodox Muslims refuse to change, while standing rigidly by theology, developed by the Ulema of the early period. Many extremists organisations among Muslims are giving Currency to rude ideas about Islam which are not in keeping with the real Teaching of Islam. Sometimes the media also misrepresents Islam and projects it as if it stands for Violence and suppression of human rights.Dr. Asghar Ali Engineer, an internationally known scholar of Islam approaches Islam rationally and projects Islamic teachings in its right spirit. He has taken up several issues in his Essays on Islam, some of which have been collected in this volume. He rationally and objectively deals with various issues, which are of contemporary significance. Whatever he writes, he writes with force of his scholarship. In this volume he deals with issues like interfaith approach of Islam, Islam and Gender justice, Islamic ethics, meaning of Prayer in Islam, core teaching of Islam, Islam and concept of jihad, etc., which are all highly relevant issues. This book will help scholars as well as lay readers to capture the real spirit of Islam and its teachings. It will help dispel misconceptions about Islam. The Author has also argued forcefully that Islam is far from being an anti-diluvion Religion and is as modern as any system of thought could be.Printed Pages: 300. 106026

Islam: Misgivings and History
Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 9789380828008; Softcover; New; 
Islam is often misunderstood because of certain fundamentals who have turned jihad into a misnomer and lead the youth astray. This book digs the truth out of the closet and clears the haze off the myths which have been passed off as Holy Preachings. The articles reflect the author's impeccable understanding of Islam and Qur’anic teachings. Sensitive issues like gender and feminism along with other commonly debated theories on science, corporal punishment, Hindutva, cow slaughter and violence have been astutely dealt with.Ali discourses on several disputed issues and quotes extensively from Qur’an. He unravels the mystery of the “Missing Verse” in whose guises people take undue liberties and also demystifies the word kafir. He refutes those who preach that science and Islam are oxymorons and unveils the hidden similarities between the two. He gives even arguments on the shortcomings of people in interpreting them. He dives into the unfathomable and rediscovers the origin of Islam. This Compilation is a must-read for all those who want to understand the preachings of the religion which has for long been unjustly associated with fanaticism. Printed Pages: 238. 107258

Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125045724; Softcover; New; 
For most of the seventy-one years of his life, Asghar Ali Engineer has been a tireless soldier to the cause of national integration and communal harmony.

It also documents his interactions with religious and political leaders of various hues across the world in the attempt to create a society that embraces all faiths.Printed Pages: 360. 101897

Development, Decentralisation and Democracy: Essays for M.A. Oommen
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2015; 812505877X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Bringing together essays critical in contemporary development discourse, this volume addresses the broad themes of development as freedom, equality and human ascent within the framework of democracy and decentralised governance. The first seven essays interrogate and critique the ideas of democracy, development and its translation into the pursuit of growth that is market driven and measured exclusively in terms of GNP. They search for possible, more inclusive reconceptualisations of ‘development’. The other seven look at issues like primary education, food security, metropolitan finance, caste and gender parity, technology as freedom, decentralisation and innovation in governance in particular, the Kerala model of development, Latin American experiments in democracy and China’s growth story-all of which offer valuable comparisons and lessons for India and the world. Eclectic in their range of concerns, perspectives and insights, the common thread binding the essays is the accent on human development and social inclusion-a fitting tribute to developmental economist Professor M. A. Oommen whose influential writings and teachings reflect a lifelong commitment to equity.With contributions by well known economists from India and abroad, this volume will be useful for students and scholars of economics and development studies, finance, public policy, governance and sociology.Printed Pages: 376. 102269

Manu Smriti: A Critical Study and Its Relevance in the Modern Times
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8124608334; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Manu-Smriti is one of the most coveted and popular works of ancient India. It comprises codes that are needed for an ideal, peaceful and harmonious society. The entire Manu-Smriti revolves around the Vedic concept of rita or dharma. The concepts of purusharthas, ashramas and varnas have their roots in dharma. These concepts were meant to make the life of every member of the society fruitful and purposeful. The codes prescribed by Manu became an authority on ancient laws and were put in practice. The scholars working in different fields of sociology, religion, philosophy, ethics, ancient laws and politics are bound to consult Manu-Smriti for some reason or the other.The present book is an effort to bring together all scattered materials related to different topics contained in Manu-Smriti. The book also aims to diffuse many of the doubts related to certain topics contained in Manu-Smriti, for example, status of brahmana, shudra and woman. The analysis of topics such as human values, raja-dharma and Manu’s codes on crime and punishment has been presented in this book in a lucid style. All these topics bear great relevance even in modern times. The volume tries to maintain the originality of Manu’s concepts through rational and honest approach. The book also includes few modern subjects like economics, ecosystem management and biodiversity conservation that have been dealt by Manu in a scientific manner.This book will benefit all those who want to know about the rules and practices that governed our ancient history, pertaining to all the aspects of human life.

Second Language Learning in a Foreign Language Environment: A Pragma-Discoursal Account
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8192047598; Softcover; New; 
The aspects of written discourse addressed in this collection of nine papers are represented in terms of the defining informational constraints on their standard use, and the associated pragma-discoursal impact on the message. Each of the first seven papers individually addresses a core feature of written discourse of challenge to the high–intermediate English as a Foreign Language learner, by examining how s/he tackles the very particular information-packaging directives that govern it. These seven papers cover a range of such features, from the micro- to the macro-level, including, reference framing, the marking of time and temporal passage, key intersentential relations and discoursal developments, and the signaling of genre. The eighth paper attempts a more general assessment of the information-design challenge that these facets of composing collectively constitute, and the last paper identifies, and accounts for, a common learning strategy that the typical foreign language context gives rise to. As a whole, the collection is a comprehensive but also deeply probing, first-of-its-kind pragma-discoursal study of how second-language writing is learned in a foreign language environment.

The Magic Web and Other Stories: Ashapurna Debi on the Widow and Her World
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125047085; Softcover; New; 
The Magic Web and Other Stories is a collection of eighteen of Ashapurna Debi’s short stories on the lives of widows. One of the most prolific creative writers in Indian literature, Ashapurna Debi is known for her incisive chronicles of the Bengali middle-class. With women as her chosen subjects, her stories voice suppressed histories of intimate lives, and probe into the familial and social dynamics of relationships analysing the play of gender, caste and class. Through these stories, we are introduced to ritual-oriented drudges and gossip-mongering women, and to unbecoming women who refuse to hear the voice of everyday morality and silence the promptings of received values. One finds in the stories the rational, sensible, modern, urban gentleman all but merely the camouflaged victims of patriarchy. There are also tales where traces of deeply entrenched desires, expressed through gestures and silences, signify the buried yet pulsating emotions in the lives of women.Printed Pages: 244. 101877

2935 Ashapurna Debi; Translated By Indira Chowdhury
The First Promise
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2009; 812503790X; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
The First Promise is a translation of Ashapurna Debi’s novel, Pratham Pratisruti , originally published in Bengali in 1964. Celebrated as one of the most popular and path-breaking novels of its time, it has received continual critical acclaim: the Rabindra Puraskar (the Tagore Prize) in 1966 and the Bharitiya Jnanpith, India’s highest literary award, in 1977. Spanning the late eighteenth and early twentieth centuries, Ashapurna tells the story of the struggles and efforts of women in nineteenth-century, colonial Bengal in a deceptively easy and conversational style. The charming eight-year old heroine, Satyabati is a child bride who leaves her husband’s village for Calcutta, the capital of British India where she is caught in the social dynamics of women’s education, social reform agendas, modern medicine and urban entertainment. As she makes her way through this complex maze, making sense of the rapidly changing world around her, Satyabati nurtures hopes and aspirations for her daughter. But the promises held out by modernity turn out to be empty, instigating Satyabati to break away from her inherited world and initiate a quest that takes her to the very heart of tradition. Indira Chowdhury’s confident translation, with its conscious choice of Indian English equivalents over British and American colloquialisms, carries across the language divide the flavour of Ashapurna’s unique idiomatic style. This edition also includes the translator’s reflections on the process of translation itself. Printed Pages: 600. 031640

Talking India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0195678982; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Multifaceted thinker and prolific author, Ashis Nandy is considered to be one of India’s leading intellectuals. For someone trained as a clinical psychologist and later as a sociologist, he continues to capture the imagination of the reading public and those interested in ideas, for his fertile mind, myriad and unpredictable ways of thinking and the essential humanism which all his writings signify. This book is a series of comprehensive interviews conducted by Ramin Jahanbegloo at Teheran and organized over six sessions. The interviewer questions Nandy within the context of his own ‘Indian-ness’ as also his affinity (and criticisms) for things Indian: whether it be thought, religion or pluralistic tendencies. The essence of Ashis Nandy and his perspectives on a wide range of things include political philosophy, democracy, India and Pakistan, globalization, Indian culture and tradition, and Gandhi, are all revealed. Throughout the interview, Nandy brings to bear his formidable intellect on these questions, which is always challenging and engaging. Printed Pages: 160. 015914

2950 Ashis Nandy; Introduction By Imtiaz Ahmed
A Very Popular Exile: An Omnibus Comprising 'The Tao of Cricket'; 'An Ambiguous Journey to City'; Traditions, Tyranny, and Utopias'
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2010; 0195693221; First Paperback Edition; Paperback; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This is a collection of three significant works of Ashis Nandy - The Tao of Cricket, An Ambiguous Journey to the City, and Traditions, Tyranny, and Utopias. In The Tao of Cricket, Nandy shows how a game once identified with the British Empire and a preserve of the British gentry - is now more South Asian than English. He examines the sneaking entry of the modern urban industrial ethic and mass culture into a game that used to thrive on its ability to be a living critique of modern life. Through the story of Indian cricket, he attempts a systematic analysis of world-views, ideologies, cultural exchanges, and political choices. An Ambiguous Journey to the City - concerned with the apparently territorial journey between the village and the city - captures some of the core fantasies and anxieties of Indian civilization over the past century. Nandy argues that the decline of the village from the creative imagination of Indians in recent decades has altered the meaning of this journey drastically, and that the true potentialities of Indian cosmopoloitanism cannot be realized without renegotiating the myth of the village. Traditions, Tyranny, and Utopias is a collection of essays on the modern West and its cultural and psychological impact on the East. Nandy analyses, brilliantly and insightfully, aspects of East-West relationship - from Western visions, which have displaced all other ideals of a good society, to Western histories that have displaced all other posts of the East. Yet, the apparently defeated have, through the likes Gandhi and Senghor, tried to subvert the West's construction of the rest and to ensure cultural survival and on open-ended future. This volume is essential reading for social scientists, policymakers, activists and anyone interested in the way Indian politics and culture are now enmeshed with a global struggle to protect human dignity and democratic values. This is the third omnibus edition of Ashis Nandy's writings, the first two being Exiled at Home and Return from Exile. 033872

Body Language: What Words don't Reveal
Goodwill Publishing House; New Delhi, India; 8172453299; Softcover; New; 
Though we are often not cognisant of the signals that our body sends out to other people, yet unconsciously we are able to decode the body language of others. We rely on our intuitive feelings to interpret and read between the lines of what the other person is saying to us.Movement is also a part of body language. All movements such as that of our head, our legs, our feet and various other body parts along with facial expressions and our gestures, combine to make our body language harmonious.Our face is the most visually expressive part of our body. There are six universal facial expressions - happiness, sadness, surprise, fear, anger and distrust.Sending out good and positive body language is like having two voices showering praises on you. But how does one go about getting better body language?The reason that body language is given such a high reliability value might be due to the fact that a lot of non-verbal behaviour that we pickup is hereditary, or is learnt by us at a very young age. Without necessarily learning it, we can convey our feelings of love, hatred, fear, enjoyment, boredom, sadness and other primary human feelings to other people. Printed Pages: 144. 108120

their preservation and protection before they disappear forever. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is one of the four provinces of Pakistan, located in the northwestern region of the country. It was formerly known as North-West Frontier Province (NWFP) and commonly called Sarhad, which in Urdu means “frontier.” Its provincial capital and largest city is Peshawar, followed by Mardan. It shares borders with the Federally Administered Tribal Areas to the west; Gilgit–Baltistan to the northeast; Azad Kashmir, Islamabad and Punjab to the east and southeast. The NWFP was later incorporated as a part of Pakistan through a referendum. After its incorporation, the aspiration of provincial autonomy still loomed large on the minds of the elites in this region who had almost reconciled to the fact that an independent Pushtunistan1 consisting of the Pushtun dominated area is virtually impossible This work is essentially useful for scholars researchers social activists academics government functionaries and the general reader alike.

Sociology of Sanitation: Themes and Perspectives
Kalpaz Publications/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789351281450; Hardcover; New; New; 
Exclusion from safe water and basic sanitation destroys more lives than any casualty . As an 'instrumental' exclusion it reinforces the deep inequalities in life chances and life styles that divide countries and people on the basis of spatial, wealth, gender, caste and other markers for deprivation. The works emphasizes that the idea of sanitation is a buzz word for various development policies and planning ensuring community participation. Intricacies of sanitation urgently need to be tapped in a holistic framework. The book presents the issues of sanitation in a jacketed configuration as follows: “I n a broader sense sanitation implies management, operation and maintenance of human/social ecology involving 'greater hygiene' and referring to scientifically derived people's capability to achieve their primal physical, biological, psychological, philosophical , social and economic needs and entitlements. It involves the well-being of individuals through exclusion or neutralization of elements (social or physical) dysfunctional to them and their community. Good sanitation is a 'way of life' and an effective tool for progress of one's mind, body and surroundings in terms of health, scientific temper , secular behaviour in an acceptable, affordable and sustainable way” . The present compilation modestly attempts to broaden the horizon of sanitation beyond physical and environmental cleanliness and hygiene. The social science academia needs to encompass sanitation discourse on diverse juxtaposed issues such as justice, empowerment, subaltern, multiculturalism and social inclusion. This book is a critique and systematic documentation of the experiences and discourses of the 'sociology of sanitation' across global world in general and South Asia in particular. Present stimulating inter disciplinary dialogue makes a more meaningful attempt towards theoretical orientation on the idea of 'sociology of sanitation'. Appropriating a considerable reader on sociology of sanitation across disciplines, this book provides deeper insights about inevitability of sanitation entrenched across contemporary developing and underdeveloped nations and provoking the advocacy for sanitation of individuals, society and the environment. Finally, this book will be tempting and pertinent to academicians, practitioners and scholars interested in development, health, social reforms, subaltern, inclusive policies, sustainability and overall well-being in South Asian perspective. About The Author: Ashish Saxena is engaged in teaching and research for over last fifteen years. Currently he teaches at Department of Sociology , University of Allahabad.

Early Historical Settlements of Setrunji River in India
Agam Kala Prakashan; New Delhi, India; 2017; 97878173201561; Hardcover; New; New; 
The book is the detailed study of the settlement archaeology of the lower Shetrunji river basin and coastal part of Bhavnagar district of Saurashtra in Gujarat during the Early Historic period. The Early Historic period of Gujarat in general and Saurashtra in particular was marked by a growth of large and small size towns such as Amreli, Akota and Valabhipur. The main theme of the present volume is the Early Historic settlements which were located in the lower part of the Shetrunji river basin, i.e. in and around Padri and Hathab. The archaeological importance of Bhavnagar district was established by the some importance discoveries in the field of Prehistoric, Protohistoric and Early Historic archaeology. The Shetrunji river basin and coastal part of Bhavnagar district in Saurashtra played an important role during the Early Historic period (2 nd century B.C.-2 nd century A.D.) as is evident from the excavations at Padri, Talaja Taluka, Bhavnagar District, Saurashtra. The site of Padri is located in the lower Shetrunji river basin and systematically excavated by Prof. Vasant Shinde. The site has yielded three-fold cultural sequence, Early Harappan (3000 B.C.-2600 B.C.), Mature Harappan (2500 B.C.-1900 B.C.) and Early Historic period (2 nd century B.C.-2 nd century A.D.). However, no systematic survey was undertaken in this area. An extensive survey was carried out by the present author along the coast and in the both sides of the lower part of Shetrunji river basin, Bhavnagar district in Gujarat on foot during the field seasons of 1996-98. A total numbers of twenty-two Early Historic as well as Harappan settlements were discovered in the course of explorations in this region. The book contains a detailed study of the development of settlement pattern in global perspectives. A detailed analysis of the pottery and other objects of the systematic excavated site of Padri are available in the book. Besides, the book contains the material cultures of the newly discovered sites. The site has yielded quite a number of terracotta objects such as discs, human and animal figurines, wheels, ear-studs, boat-shaped motifs, toy pots and a circular tablet with Brahmi inscription. This suggests that the peoples in this region knew several games and amused themselves in various ways. The tortoise-shaped Roman copper lamp that has been found at the site shows contact with the Western world in this region during the Early Historic Period. On the basis of occurrences of fishing hooks and others agricultural implements at the site it is assumed that fishing and agricultural activities must have played an important role in their subsistence pattern. The important contribution of this work is that the data from the excavation at Padri was used for dating precisely the Early Historic sites in this region. Besides, an attempt has been made for the first time to study the pattern of Early Historic settlements, function of each settlement and interaction between the various settlements.

Lady Nugent's East India Journal: A Critical Edition
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2014; 0198089724; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
In 1811, Maria Nugent left her four young children behind in England to accompany her husband, General George Nugent, on his posting as commander-in-chief in India. After a dizzying six months at the head of Calcutta society, the couple embarked on a 14-month tour of the British military stations in northern India, a journey that took them to the very edge of the imperial frontier. On these travels, Lady Nugent met a series of extraordinary figures from Indian history including Mir Jafar's widow, Munni Begum; the Indian grandmother of a British prime minister, the Begum Johnson; and the infamous adventuress and ruthless military leader, the Begum Samru. In Delhi, she enjoyed an audience with the Mughal Emperor, and in the royal zenana she was entertained by his wives and daughters, who were themselves politically astute women. An account of Lady and General Nugent's remarkable journey across colonial India, this critical edition contextualizes Lady Nugent's East India Journal in the history of India and the British Empire, and the tradition of travel writing. It offers a window into the rarely glimpsed intimate social and domestic worlds of colonial households in British India, and also connects and compares Lady Nugent's time in India with her earlier voyage to Jamaica recorded in her West India journal.

Emily Bronte, D.H. Lawrence and the Black Horse
Pragati Publications; New Delhi, India; 1997; 8173070466; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This is perhaps the only comparative study of Emily Bronte and D. H. Lawrence to date. It largely tries to do two things. First, it views the novels of Bronte and Lawrence as part of a European stream of protest against an idealistic civilization that exalts the spirit and degrades the body. To this stream also belong thinkers like Rousseau, Nietzsche, Freud and, in our times, Norman O. Brown and Theodore Roszak. Secondly, this Book takes the position that Bronte is pre eminently Lawrence's precursor. If the sense of non-human in humanity is the distinguishing feature of Lawrence's ceuvre (as he stated in his famous letter to Garnett), Bronte anticipates him even more than Hardy."What unites the philosophical writings of Rousseau, Nietzsche and Freud with the novels of Lawrence and Emily Bronte is their strong sense of the self and the belief affirmed with varying digress of emphasis that it is rooted in the body. Also, their dissatisfaction with western civilization stems from the realization that it negates the self. In fact, the violence and destructiveness of western civilization is seen by almost all of them to result from its denial of the body. Also, while no one exactly advocates a return to nature, not even Rousseau, they may be called primitivists in that they believe that primitive man was superior to 'Civilized' man since he lived a richer psychic life."Printed Pages: 128. 101196

Essays in Indian Ethnomusicology
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1998; 812150807X; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The book represents a major attempt to place music in India in wider perspectives offered by numerous music-traditions which deal with theoretical frameworks of music. It is music theory, pitched at an ambitious high. In twenty-seven closely argued essays, the author touches diverse music-centered studies such as religion, philosophy, linguistics, poetics, theatre-arts, folklore, aesthetics, musicology as grammar, history, intercultural inquiries, area-studies, oral traditions, inter-art relationships, and Indology. He insists on keeping performance at the centre of his investigations and hence succeeds in avoiding dangers of dry pedantry-which may excessively depend on the written material and methodologies developing with it. Further, all essays are permeated with an intense Indianness, intent on voicing the Indian view-point. However, the writing steers clear of scholastic chauvinism because of the author's genuine and unwavering regard for the world of fundamental concepts and ideas, whether indigenous or foreign, that has governed Indian musical behaviour. The effort is an invaluable guide to students of Indian of Indian music and culture-presented as mutually dependent entities. Printed Pages: 352. 000178

Saying's From the Vedas, Upanishad, Bhagvad Gita (Set of 3 Books)
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 8189738402; Softcover; New; New; 
The Vedas are considered the oldest scriptures of mankind. Their message transcends barriers of race, creed or religion. Today the nectar of the Vedas is restricted to scholars and priests. The present generation is unaware of the knowledge contained therein. There are two reasons for this—firstly, these are in Sanskrit, a language hardly spoken today, and secondly, their composition is terse, archaic and esoteric.In Sayings from the Vedas a humble attempt has been made to fuse the verses with Nature photographs and distill the essence of the Holy Books in as pleasant a manner as possible for the benefit of the common man. The main motivating factor is to highlight the thoughts contained in the Vedas, which will remain relevant to mankind forever.Printed Pages: 320 with 152 colour photographs. 106526
