30306 Shanti Bhushan
Courting Destiny: A Memori
Penguin/Viking; New Delhi, India; 2008; 067008218X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
"Born in 1925, Shanti Bhushan was witness to the formative years of the Indian republic. Courting Destiny traces the remarkable story of his life—the family’s origins in the town of Bijnor in the United Provinces, the experience of growing up in a joint family in Allahabad, initial encounters with the law when the Constitution of India was being framed, the distinguished career as a lawyer and law minister, culminating in the campaign for judicial accountability. These memoirs provide a participant’s account of some of the most interesting and seminal cases that laid the foundations of India’s constitutional history. They include the Keshav Singh case of 1964 which led to the first standoff between the executive and the judiciary; Indira Gandhi’s election case which unseated her as prime minister, leading to the imposition of the Emergency; the habeas corpus case where the Supreme Court declared that during an emergency there is no right to life or liberty and hence no recourse against illegal detention; and the parliament attack case in which the Supreme Court, while acquitting Shaukat Guru of all charges of conspiracy, convicted him on a charge for which he was never accused. Together, they offer a broad perspective of the evolution of Indian law and the interpretation of the Constitution. Courting Destiny affords us a glimpse of the many fundamental and far-reaching political and constitutional changes that took place in the decades following independence. The descriptions of Shanti Bhushan’s brief involvement in party politics and his time as law minister in the post-Emergency Janata government make for a fascinating insider’s account of an important phase of the nation’s life. In this narration of the author’s life and work, the personal, the professional and the public unfold seamlessly, never at the cost of one or the other. Written in a direct and engaging style, laced with gentle humour, Courting Destiny will appeal to all those interested in India’s legal, constitutional and political history. At a time when both the Bar and the Bench are under a cloud, the illustrious sixty-year career of Shanti Bhushan will be a source of inspiration for young advocates.

30310 Shanti Kumar
Gandhi Meets Primetime: Globalization and Nationalism in Indian Television
University of Illinois Press; Urbana and Chicago, USA; 2006; 0252072448; First Edition; Paperback; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Shanti Kumar's Ghandi Meets Primetime examines how cultural imaginations of national identity have been transformed by the rapid growth of satellite and cable television in postcolonial India. To evaluate the growing influence of foreign and domestic satellite and cable channels since 1991, the book considers a wide range of materials including contemporary television programming, historical archives, legal documents, policy statements, academic writings and journalistic accounts. Kumar argues that India's hybrid national identity is manifested in the discourses found in this variety of empirical sources. He deconstructs representations of Mahatma Gandhi as the Father of the Nation on the state-sponsored network Doordarshan and those found on Rupert Murdoch's STAR TV network. The book closely analyzes print advertisements to trace the changing status of the television set as a cultural commodity in postcolonial India and examines publicity brochures, promotional materials and programming schedules of Indian-language networks to outline the role of vernacular media in the discourse of electronic capitalism. The empirical evidence is illuminated by theoretical analyses that combine diverse approaches such as cultural studies, poststructuralism and postcolonial criticism.

Madhava Kandali Ramayana: Composed in Assamese by Sage Madhava Kandali, the great son of the soil in the fourteenth century AD translated into English, 2 Vols. (Ramayana in Regional Languages Series, Vol. I)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8121509351; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
Though the scholars in the country have tried to trace the genesis of the Ramayana from the Vedic and post-Vedic literature, with the fragments of the story of Rama found scattered in these texts, but the most important job in the composition of the story of Rama was done by the sage Valmiki, who happened to be the foremost of the Indian Sanskrit poets. He composed the work on the basis of the brief of Rama's story provided to him by the sage Narada, as well as the fragments of the story collected by him with the extensive travelling of the country which immensely added to its popularity with the masses. After the sage Valmiki, several subsequent poets brought out Ramayana texts in Sanskrit as well as in the regional languages. The work composed by Madhava Kandali in Assamese language happens to be one of the earliest works of medieval period, having been composed in the fourteenth century AD. The Ramayana of Krttivasa was composed in the fifteenth century, while the Ramacaritamanasa by Tulasidasa in the sixteenth century AD. The work of Madhava Kandali was composed on the basis of the Valmiki Ramayana, though some variations are noticed here and there. The present work is an English translation of the Madhava Kandali Ramayana in Assamese. Printed Pages: 600. 022163

Surya and Sun Cult: In Indian Art, Literature and Thought
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1995; 8173050562; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 18 x 25 Cm 
The Sun has been illumining it and has impressed not only the human race but also all other creatures. His name occurs in the records of the Kassites and Mitanni but in the Indian context, he enjoys an important position in the Vedic as well as the post-Vedic literature. In the epics some of the rulers like Dasaratha, Rama and Others claimed their origin to the Sun. The Buddhist and Jain literature too provided him an important place in their respective religious treatises. In the Puranas however, he became a an important cult- god and not only regular system of his worship is found prescribed therein, but also his images were required to be lodged in exclusive shrines dedicated to the deity. The Epics and the Puranic texts present Surya in human form and also define the Family of Surya as well his progeny. The wife of Surya is described as Sanjna (or awakening), daughter of Visvakarman, besides Chaya (shadowy; and Revanta and Sani as his sons Surya is also conceived as a great healer and quite generous to his devotees. He is the prominent leader of the entire solar system and the Navagrahas, the panels of which are frequently found in the Brahmanical shrines. He is also believed to be the controller of time, and the maker of days and nights. The twelve Adityas are supposed to represent the twelve months of the year. The present work aims at providing glimpses of the various aspect of the Sun- god and the different angles from which he has been viewed by the ancient sages, the artists, the thinkers besides those involved in the study of the sciences of astrology, Astronomy and the connected subjects.

Varaha: In Indian Art, Culture and Literature
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1993; 8173050309; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 18 x 25 Cm 
In the Indian context, the animal, though occasionally appears in the Vedic and post-vedic literature, but its reverence achieved a great boost after its association with the incarnation of Visnu, a strong and powerful Brahmanical god. In this form the boar, it is stated, rescued the earth-goddess submerged under the deep sea-waters. The reasons for the drowning of the earth have been quite convincingly given in the texts. The Mahabharata is quite vocal in this regard, wherein, it is stated that the earth was submerged in water because of its over population. "The salient features of the episode are (i) the Deluge, (ii) the Earth, (iii) the Demon Hiranyaksa, besides the boar. With the passage of time the theme of the rescue of the earth became symbolical with the rulers of the country, who after having conquered a territory or overthrowing the foreign domination, equated the event with the rescue of the earth by the boar incarnation of Visnu. Such events were celebrated by erecting an image or a temple of the god. "The present work aims at highlighting the various aspects of Varaha form of Visnu, in the background of the literary as well as the archaeological evidence, available in the country.

Parimal Publications; Delhi, India; 2008; 8171103162; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
The story of Rama has been dominating the Indian religious scene from the time immemorial. The complete story of the Ramayana was hardly popular with the masses in complete form till it was composed by the sage Valmiki in a book form. The Ramayana which is known as the Adi-kavya or the first ornate poem according to the indigenous estimation is ascribed to the sage Valmiki, the Adikavi or the first author of the ornate poetry. The Ramayana deserves to be called as the Adikavya because of the characteristics of the ornate poetry, such as the description of nature and the presence of the figures of speech, both of words and the sense are quite auspicious. A number of Ramayanas were composed in different parts of the country. The regional Ramayanas were composed not only in the north but also in the south, in Tamil, Telugu and Kannada languages. Of these regional works, the Kamba Ramayana which was composed by Maharshi Kamban, possibly was the earliest. The Kamba Ramayana comprises of six kandas instead of seven of the Valmiki Ramayana.Printed Pages: 1001. 100608

Hanuman: In Art, Culture, Thought and Literature
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1995; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Ever since the dawn of civilization in the country, several deities emerged on the Indian religious scene, while some of them vanished into oblivion as suddenly as they had mushroomed, sone of them left and indelible impression in the minds of the people and are adored in one form or the other even during the modern times. Hanuman happens to be one such deity. Though scholars have tried to trace the presence of Hanuman in the Vedic literature in the form of Vrsakapi, the Braham Purana, how-ever, recognises Vrsakapi to be none else than Hanuman himself. Hanuman, as such however, was introducted by Valmiki for the first time in the Ramayana where initially he had an insignificant role as a minister of Sugriva. His personality indeed got a great boost soon after his coming in contact with Rama and Lakshmana, the Ayodhya princes. In fact most of the episodes in the Kiskindha, Sundara and Yuddha Kandas of the Ramayana hover round Hanuman. There, he is presented as an excellent warrior, a devoted servant, a diplomat par excellence, most intelligent person and the one, who possessing all the virtues, could render selfless service to one and all. He never had any aspirations of his own and his entire performance in the epic was dedicated for the service of others. He could perform such heroic deeds, which none else even Rama and Laksmana could do.Printed Pages: 604. 102065

Indian Monoliths
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1992; Hardcover; New; New; 
One of the glorious aspects of the Ancient Indian art and Architecture had been the creation of Monoliths which were hewn out of solid rocks. Though the presence of these monoliths could be traced in the Vedic and later Vedic texts, but no specimens beyond the Mauryan period could be traced. The Indra Sabha of Chandragupta Maurya at Kumrahar near Patna was credited with having eighty-two monolithic pillars with the glazed polish. However, with Asoka's ascending to the throne of Magadha, the art of chiselling in India received a great boost. During his times a number of monolithic pillars with capitals including those at Sanchi and Sarnath were created. The pillars of the Mauryan period were circular in their design but during the subsequent period the stress on circular monoliths was almost abandoned. In their place, the square, hexagonal, or octagonal monolithic pillars were patronised. In centuries that followed the artist besides continuing the activity of monolithic pillars, also started the chiselling of the monolithic cave stupas, which served the cause of Buddhism, followed by the creation of monolithic temples, like those at Ellora, Mahabalipuram and Masrur (Kangra). These Monoliths have their own importance in the Indian Art and Architecture. The present work deals with the subject in detail, highlighting the salient features of the Indian monoliths.Printed Pages: 204. 102503

Deities in Terracotta Art: From Earliest Times to Late Medieval Period (Indian Gods and Goddesses), Vol. V
B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8176466379; Hardcover; New; New; 
Terracotta Art has attracted the mankind from the time immemorial. Be it the household or child`s play cart it dominated the human society impressively. A school of thought treated it to be the poor-man`s art but it was patronised in fact by the higher strata of society as well, While with the poor it was like the lifeline who used it for cooking and other domestic purposes besides making the toys for their children and more often than not as the deities for adoration, the most popular among them being the Mother Goddess. Such figurines have been found in abundance in the pre-historic sites of Harappa and Mohenjodaro and they continued during the historical period as well. Gradually the number of deities in Terracotta Art went on increasing and the sites like Bhumra, Ahichchhatra, Rajghat, Mathura etc. of the historical period produced a large number of deities. Interestingly the types of such deities in the earlier period was restricted to only a few deities like Siva. Mother Goddess, the sun or some composite forms but reaching the historical period their number was multiplied. Even those figures of the historical period which included the goddesses like MahisasuramardinI, Sarasvatl, Durga and others started attracting the provisions of the Silp-Sastras in making of the terracotta figurines. Though there had been a number of books on Terracotta Art in India but a work exclusively dealing with the Indian deities represented in Terracotta Art are not quite common. In the present book an effort has been made to project the deities so commonly found from the earliest times in the Indian Terracotta Art, and it is hoped that the readers will find it interesting.

30342 Shanti Lal Nagar
Buddha in Gandhara Art and other Buddhist Sites
Buddhist World Press/B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8190821210; Hardcover; New; New; 
The genesis of the Buddhist art in India, is traceable in the stone art of Bharhut dating back to the second century B.C. followed by the art of the Buddhist stupa at Sanchi, the art of Mathura and Amaravati dating back to a century or two later. Numerous stone artefacts relating to the life of the Buddha were discovered from these sites. The early tradition of the Buddhist art and Bharhut and Sanchi does not project Buddha in human form. He is projected at these sites in symbolic form of empty throne, a chariot with a rider, a Bodhi tree or a horse without a rider. This was ostensibly done by the followers of the Buddha, out of the great reverence and respect, they had for the master. The Buddha, however, started appearing in human form in Gandhara Art, which starts from the 2nd-3rd c. A.D. onwards. The projection of Buddha here at Gandhara in human form is so wider spread, as if it had been started with a vengeance. In early Buddhist sites of Bharhut, Sanchi, Mathura, Amravati and Nagarjunakonda, the Buddhist art was executed in the hard stone. But in Gandhara the religious art was not restricted to the stone sculptures alone but its excellence was projected in terracotta and stucco at Taxila, the Cave at Bamiyan, in Afghanistan and other sites, where two standing images of the Buddha were found, one of which is the tallest in the world with a height of 177 feet. The life scenes of Buddha right from the dream of the queen Maya to his parinirvana started appearing in the Buddhist art from Bharhut onwards, and Gandhara started doing so by about the 2nd - 3rd c.A.D. In the present work an attempt has been made to portray as many life scenes of Buddha as possible from Gandhara and while doing so the evidence of some other ancient Buddhist sites, like Bharhut, Sanchi, Amaravati, Nagarjunakonda, Mathura, etc. has also been included with the twin purpose of comparative study and to supply the missing link.

Giradhara Ramayana: Composed in Gujarati by Giridhara, the great son of the soil in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries AD translated into English (Ramayana in Regional Languages Series
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8121510309; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
The Ramayana or the story of Rama, has been dominating the Indian religious scene from the time immemorial. Before composition of the work of poetic excellence to be the pioneer of the same, the story was available in fragments in different parts of the country. Though the sage Valmiki was inspired by the sage Narada for composing the Ramayana but Valmiki had to collect several fragments of the story from various regions of the country. Once the story was composed in poetic form, there was a great boost in the popularity of the theme and soon there arose the urge with the people to listen or to recite the Ramayanas in the languages they spoke. As a result of this, several Ramayana in the regional languages were brought out from time to time in the past particularly in the medieval period. The Giridhara Ramayana in Gujarati comes under such types of works, which was composed by Giridhara, a great son of soil, in Gujarati language. The most astonishing aspect of this work has been that it provides occasionally the study of the selected events as discussed in other works, which highlights its unique nature. The English version of the text now produced, will securely interest the readers in country and abroad. Printed Pages: 517. 000102

30348 Shanti Swarup Gupta
Integrated Development Plan for India: Goals Tools and Strategies
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1992; 817022411X; Hardcover; New; New; 
It appears, lately the western world is reconciling to three ideas. First, life is one. In the name of specialisation, to take a sectarian view is not correct. So, now inter-disciplinary researchers are increasingly becoming popular. Secondly, progress cannot sort from zero. It must be linked to the past. Culture cannot be suddenly asked to go. Thirdly, materialism alone is not a satisfactory answer to happiness. Dr. S.S. Gupta has incorporated all the three aspects in the present work, which predominantly belongs to the discipline of economics. While defining Goal, he has talked of an all round, integrated and balanced growth of life. He has called it Anand, i.e. permanent happiness. While dealing with Tools, he has tried to bank upon the traditional tools of family, family function and national festivals, mass media, etc. And while discussing Strategies, he has discussed along with economic strategy and supporting social and political strategies. His ideas of District States for maximum decentralisation of power and Samrasta for social rejuvenation are thought provoking. His suggestion to take up selected areas, instead of the whole country, for a planned integrated development and saturate it with resources in a period of time, say five years, and take it to the take off stage within this period and then leave it to its fate, deserves serious attention. This is a readable book, full of challenging ideas. Printed Pages: 274. 112378

The Temples of Himachal Pradesh
Aditya Prakashan; New Delhi, India; 1990; 8185179484; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Indian History sh has been known from the time immemorial as the 'Land of Gods', who have their abodes in the entire length and breadth of the state. The deities enshrined therein, belong to different cults and creeds, of the Hindu, the Buddhist and the Jaina pantheons. These shrines belong to the different periods of Indian history, portray different schools of art and Architecture and have been handed over by the past in the form of stone as well as wooden or even brick structures of sikhara, pagoda, pentroof and dome shaped temples and monasteries. An attempt has been made in this work to project a descriptive account of nearly three hundred such religious edifices belonging to different periods of Indian History in the twelve districts of the state, arranged in a chronological order, also classifying them in (i) Sakti temples, (ii) Siva temples, (iii) Vaishnava temples and (iv) temples of the other deities. While doing so, an effort has been made to correlate the copper plate grants concerning the different temples, which highlight the importance of each one of them. Another interesting feature of the work is, the account concerning the various temples dedicated to the Puranic sages like Vyasa, Markandeya, Parasurama and others, besides the local deities (not related to any of the renowned faiths) which include Deosiddha Balakanath, Shirgil, Devatas and Nagas.

30375 Sharada Dwivedi
The Maharaja & the Princely States of India
Lustre Press/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174365753; Hardcover; New; New; 
The coveted Jacob diamond - all of 62 carats and used as a paperweight; the mind-boggling beauty of the diamond necklace of Maharaja Pratapsingh Gaekwad of Baroda - in which sparkled the famous 'Star of the South'and 'The Star of Dresden'; the crystal collection at Shiv Niwas Palace in Bikaner-the largest in the world; the 27 Rolls Royces owned by the Maharaja of Patiala; the dog kennels in Harasar that were fitted with electricity and telephones; the car collection in Udaipur that was used for ceremonial processions and collection of garbage (!); the jauhar committed by 40,000 women in Jaisalmer and Chittoran - unparalleled landmarks in the annals of history. The mirage becomes a reality when the reader recreates the awesome magic and scintillating wonder of a world gone by . the stuff that fairy tales are made of - tales of heroism and valour, the pulsating excitement of secret liaisons, the dark intrigues of the zenana, the opulence and sheer beauty of princely treasures - the world of the Maharajas - a world immortalized by poets, painters and musicians . a life away from common lives that was so near its subjects and yet, so far. That world is no more. But its romance lives on, indelible and dreamlike. Nostalgic memoirs of the passions, idiosyncrasies, visions and lifestyle of the princely order still fascinate and enthral. The Maharaja and the Princely States of India captures the lives and times of the privileged few - those who were 'born into greatness'. Even though they no longer wield the royal sceptre and have merged their heritage into the well-spring of democracy today, they remain 'living legends'of the exoticism of the India that was. This book is perhaps the last visual record of princely India. A cross-section of old and rare photographs juxtaposed with contemporary cameos make it a collector's pride. Printed Pages: 155. 108649

30382 Sharat Kumar
The White Marble Burji and Other Stories
Aakar Books; New Delhi, India; 9789383723188; Softcover; New; 
“This collection of short stories is an assimilation of ideas, characters and language. It makes one embark on a journey that is thought-provoking, beautiful and real, all at the same time, and leaves one feeling both fulfilled yet hoping for more. The author is a man of many talents and wide experience. He started his career as a commissioned officer in the Indian Navy. After nine years of service, including a year spent on deputation to command a Company of the Border Roads in North Sikkim, he resigned his commission and joined a private sector industry in Kolkata. He went on to become its Managing Director, and then switched to be the President of a Joint Sector Company in Srinagar, Kashmir. Subsequently, he was the Director of a prestigious MBA school (IMT Ghaziabad), when he wrote his book Mind your Management which won the ‘Best Management Book of the Year Award’ from NTPC-DMA. Irrespective of the jobs he was doing, Sharat Kumar always upheld his love for literarture. Besides many short stories, his first novel Shikhar aur Seemayen based on his experiences in Sikkim won the literary award of the Delhi Hindi Committee. His other Hindi novel, Lal Kothi Alvida was made into a TV serial and eighty-two half hour episodes of it were telecast at prime time by Doordarshan. He also directed a full-length art film based on this novel which received Certificates of Special Merit at International Film Festivals at Strasbourg and Philadelphia, and a Mejor Actriz, Rashi B Award at Festival de Granada, and was screened at Festival du Cinema de Bruxelles.” -Dr. Sonal Parmar, Editorial Consultant, National School of Drama “What we find in these stories are documentations, and careful unfolding of the everyday events around us, and how the disturbed individual in the modern world continues to struggle against odds. Sharat Kumar’s collection of deep, insightful narratives do not just disturb the reader. But in doing so introduces them to a world where serenity does not come as a marching platoon of motivational ideas, but as a series of sonorous drops resulting from an individual struggle in life. Kumar’s collection of stories are about the common man’s life. There is no heroic feat by any of the characters, no other worldly inventions, if there are gods, demons and apsaras, then they are humanized. These stories are about the common that is thrown into the chaos of a fractured modernity.” -Arijeet Mondal, PhD (literature) scholar, University of Delhi “The White Marble Burzi and Other Stories by Sharat Kumar is a collection that will leave the readers with a calming sense of the indecipherable beauty of life, love and remembering. The writing sustains a languid grace throughout the stories. Several of Kumar’s stories espouse a travelogue style description of places and situations with minute attention paid to details. These stories are a charming ode to love, longing and many mysteries of life that cannot be solved but only enjoyed.” -Rituparna Sengupta, Freelance Journalist. 111684

The Puppeteers of Palem
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789384030681; Softcover; New; 
The village of Rudraksha Palem awakens and tells her tale. Five friends return to the village of their childhood to find that nothing seems to have changed and at the same time everything has. Whose voice is it that called them back and whose hand is it that now hunts them down, one by one? Palems grand old man, a Brahmin landlord, their childhood storyteller, makes one last ditch attempt to save his village from ruin at her hands. Will he succeed or will his past catch up with him and demand fair price? Two boys, one blind and the other lame, skirt the village borders at the old Shivalayam, listening, staring. On their faces they wear smiles of contentment. They sleep well. They see happy dreams. A TV reporter arrives to study the village, only to sink deeper into the mystery with each passing day. And hovering above all of these is the shadow of Lachi, who is believed to haunt the old Shivalayam on full moon nights. Some say shes consumed by lust, others call it madness, but all catch the red glint in her eye and the icy calm in her voice as she croons a sad, lonely song. The one thing she hungers for, that will satisfy her soul, is the fire that will burn Palem down to ashes. 109695

The labour movement in India with a focus, among others, on labour legislations, viz., the Factory, Trade Union, and Industrial Disputes Acts. The unorganised/ informal sector, which employs an overwhelming majority of the working population. The author looks at how the lowering of trade barriers and the move towards liberalisation, privatisation and outsourcing, have affected the working class. He shows how providing labour rights can be a more effective way of ensuring productivity. In this context, he examines the notion of ‘Decent Work’ as promoted by the International Labour Organization (ILO) that deals with rights and social protection of/for children, women workers and those belonging to socially oppressed groups in developing countries.Printed Pages: 224. 102002

Discounted Life: The Price of Global Surrogacy in India
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8125060472; Softcover; New; 15 x 24 Cm 
India is the top provider of surrogacy services in the world, with a multi-million dollar surrogacy industry that continues to grow exponentially, as increasing numbers of couples from developed nations look for wombs in which to grow their babies. Some scholars have exulted transnational surrogacy for the possibilities it opens for infertile couples, while others have offered bioethical cautionary tales, rebuked exploitative intended parents, or lamented the exploitation of surrogate mothers. However, very little is known about the experience of and transaction between surrogate mothers and intended parents outside the lens of the many agencies that control surrogacy in India.Drawing from rich interviews with surrogate mothers and egg donors in Bangalore, Discounted Life focuses on the processes of social and market exchange in transnational surrogacy. Sharmila Rudrappa interrogates the creation and maintenance of reproductive labor markets, the function of agencies and surrogacy brokers, and how women become surrogate mothers.The author argues that this reproductive industry is organized to control and disempower women workers and yet her interviews reveal that, by and large, the surrogate mothers in Bangalore found the experience life affirming. Rudrappa explores this tension, and the lived realities of many surrogate mothers whose deepening bodily commodification is paradoxically experienced as a revitalizing life development.A detailed and moving study, Discounted Life delineates how local labor markets intertwine with global reproduction industries, how Bangalore’s surrogate mothers make sense of their participation in reproductive assembly lines, and the remarkable ways in which they negotiate positions of power for themselves in progressively untenable socio-economic conditions.This book would be useful to students and scholars of Sociology and Women and Gender Studies.

Scripting Lives: Narratives of 'Privileged Women' in Kerala
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8125036806; First Edition; Paperback; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
How does one examine the lives women script in the intimacy of diaries, letters and other personal narratives and how can one relate these to the social worlds in which they are produced? Centring its investigation on contemporary Kerala, it examines a range of diverse and seemingly disconnected discourses around the Kerala model, tourism, AIDS and sexual violence and argues that present-day Kerala maps two opposing worlds. It imagines itself as a perfected utopia and, simultaneously, also as a dystopiaa society that is on the edge of collapse. The book attempts to explore these divergent self-descriptions of Kerala. Concurrently it also analyses a range of personal narratives to trace how “dominant women” configure their selves. It deploys the term “dominant women” to signal women of relative privilege, whose experience speaks simultaneously of devaluation and dominance. Their lives also signal the asymmetries, the instabilities and the inequalities within the category “woman”. These women are, in many ways, the subject of the development narratives of the state. The book reveals how discourses apparently removed from women’s everyday shape their personal experiences and, in turn, how women’s self-formations overwrite, extend and rework these “larger” discourses. Sreekumar’s writing is compelling and textured. Her research, based on a wide range of women’s narratives, makes this a riveting journey into the makings of modern-day Kerala.
