4 Victoria Terrace: Memoirs of a Surgeon
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8187358637; Hardcover; New; New; 
4 Victoria Terrace: Memoirs of a Surgeon covers tumultuous times in recent history, beginning from the later years of British Rule. Rarely does one come across a doctor''s account of what it meant to experience and handle human tragedies of the magnitude of the Bengal Famine or the Partition of the country.Apart from being a doctor''s travelogue, there is hardly any major city in the world that Dr Chatterjee has not visited, this book also unfolds an extremely perceptive description of one of our most important social institutions: medical colleges and hospitals. We also get an inside view of the medical profession itself, one of the most politicized at every level, but not without enduring friendships and knowledge sharing.hese pages contain some tragic stories of dedicated brilliant doctors, who become the victims of their own profession. There are also accounts of almost miraculous surgery that saves patients, all but dead, and often just a few hours old.Printed Pages: 288. 101930

1857 in North East India: A Reconstruction From Folk and Oral Sources
Akansha Publishing House; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8183701310; Hardcover; New; New; 
An attempt is made in this volume to delineate how history is carefully blended with the oral tradition to construct a picture of the past. n nThe balled Jangiyar Geet, the `Song of the warriors `, is a very valuable source material in formulating the appropriate history of our glorious past--the War of independence, 1857. n nThe common people, primarily the fishermen community and the peasantry, till today, recite in mass gatherings commemorating the sacrifice of the patriotic soldiers of the 34 N.I. regiment, who embraced martyrdom to liberate the motherland from the British. The events and the reaction and the attitude of the people as reflected in these songs and folk-ballad help us reconstruct the so called history of the power and his allays, and can make the history of the voiceless, -- a popular history of our own.

Encyclopaedia of Upanishads and Its Philosophy, 4 Vols
Chaukhamba Publications; New Delhi, India; 2002; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In the long History of man's endeavor to grasp the fundamental truths of being, the Metaphysical treatises known as the Upanisads hold an honoured place. They represent the earnest efforts of the profound thinkers of early India to solve the problems of the origin, the nature, and the destiny of man and of the universe, or-more technically-the meaning and value of 'knowing' and 'being'. They are replete with sublime conceptions and with intuitions of universal truth. Here are found intimations of the inadequacy of mere nature-worship and of the falsity of ritualistic ceremonialism. Here are expressed the momentous discoveries that the various gods of polytheistic belief are but numerous special manifestations of the One Power of the universe, and that the supreme object of worship is this variously revealed, partially elusive, all-comprehending Reality. Here in the Upanisads are set forth, in concrete example as well as in dogmatic instruction.In the long history of man's endeavor to grasp the fundamental truths of being, the metaphysical treatises known as the Upanisads hold an honoured place.

Here are expressed the momentous discoveries that the various gods of polytheistic belief are but numerous special manifestations of the One Power of the universe, and that the supreme object of worship is this variously revealed, partially elusive, all-comprehending Reality. Here in the Upanisads are set forth, in concrete example as well as in dogmatic instruction, two opposing theories of life: an ignorant, narrow, selfish way of life which seeks temporary, unsatisfying, unreal ends; and a way of life which seeks to relate itself to the Supreme Reality of the universe, so as to escape from the needless misery of ordinary existence into undying bliss. The Upanisads attract as many devoted readers as they have for the past twenty-five centuries. The Upanisads appeal to the student of the history of philosophy who desires to know some of the earliest answers reached in India for the ever insistent problems of man and the universe and for the ideals of the higher existence; the special student of India who strives to understand the essence as well as the externals of its culture and traditions; the religious teacher and worker in East and West who seeks to apprehend the aspirations and spiritual ideals of The Hindu soul; the educated Hindu who feels a special affection for, and interest in, the sacred writings of his land; and the deep thinker who searches in arcane texts for clues to the solution of life's mysteries-all of these students will turn constantly to the Upanisads as an authoritative compendium of Indian meta-physical teachings. This pioneering reference work wishes to present a rendering of the fundamental philosophy and truths the Upanisads talk of. With contributions from some of the foremost scholars in the field of Indology and philosophical contemplation, the set should be a welcome addition to any collection on Indian studies.Printed Pages: 1600. 100647

Encyclopaedia of Vedic Philosophy: The Age, Religion, Pantheon, Philosophy, Traditions and Teachers of the Vedas, 9 Vols
Chaukhamba Publications; New Delhi, India; 2002; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The orthodox Hindu regards the Vedas as his highest written authority. Any subsequent scripture, if he is to regard it as valid, must be in agreement with them, it may expand them, it may develop them, and still be recognized, but it must not contradict them. They are to him, as nearly as any human document can be, the expression of divine truth. At the same time it would be a mistake to suppose that his allegiance to their authority is, in the final analysis, blind and automatic. If he considers them the word of God, it is because he believes their truth to be verifiable, immediately, at any moment, in his own personal experience. If he found, on due examination, that it was not so definable, he would reject it. If he found that any part of it was not so definable, he would reject that. In short, he conceives that his faith in the Vedas is as well founded, and on grounds exactly as critical as is the natural scientist’s belief in any physical law. In other words, the study of the Vedas, is first-hand experience of God. The Vedas teach the knowledge of God, and lay down work as a means to that knowledge---the word work here signifying both sacrificial rites and unselfish performance of secular duty. When through work our hearts are purified, we are ripe for divine knowledge. Work and knowledge these two are the subjects of the Vedas, and name the parts into which Rg, Sàma, Yajur and Atharva are each divided. Against the background of these conceptions the orthodox view of the origin of the Vedas may be quickly sketched. At the very beginning of each cycle, holy seers are born into the world, men who in previous universes have ascended far towards the supreme goal and are therefore especially capable of perceiving divine truth. These blessed saints---ûŸis, the Hindus call them---meditate on God, and while so meditating discern the everlasting laws of the spirit, and it is the concrete record of these laws, so discerned, that constitutes, in each cycle, the most authoritative or sacred writings. The record of the meditations of the ûŸis born at the beginning of our own cycle is, then, what we know as the Vedas. This Encyclopaedia of Vedic Philosophy fulfills the need for a vast introductory work of reference to this diverse philosophical subject. The nine-volume set, with contributions from some of the foremost Indological scholars from around the world, incorporates the finest writings on the Vedas and the philosophy they propound. This work is perhaps the largest comprehensive reference source on the subject.Printed Pages: 3150. 100648

Philosophy of Saivism: History, Philosophy and Literature of Saivism
Chaukhamba Publications; New Delhi, India; 2004; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
"Saivism, may be defined as the setting aside of the triune equality of Brahma, Vishnu, and Siva, and the merging of the former two Gods in the God -- Siva. But it is also more than this. It is supreme being, infinite, eternal, an exempt from subjection to the law of ultimate absorption into the universal spirit. Rudra appears quite early in the Veda with a well-recognized and well-marked personality of his own. He is an important deity, whose anger is to be dreaded and whose favour is to be propitiated. Probably the first office or function connected with him was that of directing and controlling the rage of the howling storms. As God of gale and tempest, he is father of the destructive storm-winds, who are also called Rudras, and generally identified with the Maruts. He is also nearly relate to time (kala), the all-consumer, and indeed afterwards identified with him. Siva became to his worshippers the great God (Maha-Deva) and lord of the universe (Jagat-pitri, Visva-natha) who, although he has numerous forms, is generally worshipped under one mystical shape -- a plain upright stone, the sign or symbol (Linga) of generative and creative power -- scattered in millions of shrines over every part of India. Unquestionably all Hindus, even the strictest Vaishnavas, are ready to pay homage to Siva in his characters of dissolver and regenerator. The book is designed to be an informative treatise devoted to Siva."Printed Pages: 608. 100656

The Bengal Renaissance: Identity and Creativity from Rammohun Roy to Rabindranath Tagore
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2006; 8178242796; First Edition; Paperback; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Scholars have long debated the very idea of a ‘Bengal Renaissance’. Their controversies have dwelt almost entirely over whether there was anything like a ‘renaissance’ at all, and its significance or otherwise from social, political, and cultural perspectives. This book addresses the issue from a very different framework. Subrata Dasgupta—an eminent scientist and author of a highly regarded intellectual biography of the scientist Jagadis Chandra Bose—approaches the topic from the perspective of philosophy of science and the psychology of creativity. His intention is to show that the phenomenon of the Bengal Renaissance is characterized by a certain collective cognitive identity, which had its roots in the work of the British Orientalists, beginning with William Jones, and which took form amidst a small but remarkable community of highly creative individuals in nineteenth-century Bengal. The most notable figures in this creative community were the social reformer and savant Rammohun Roy; the poet Henry Derozio; the scholar-poet Michael Madhusudan Datta; the novelist Bankimchandra Chattopadhyay; pioneering scientists and medical men such as Mahendra Lal Sircar, Jagadis Chandra Bose, and Prafulla Chandra Ray; the mystic Sri Ramakrishna, the pedagogue Swami Vivekananda; and the all-encompassing literary figure Rabindranath Tagore. The core work of each of these major figures is outlined for its distinctive style, analysed for its contribution to an intellectual milieu, and assessed for its effect on cultural life. The author unveils in detail the precise cognitive nature of the respective creative endeavours of these key figures, especially in the realms of Indology, theology, literature, science, and practical religion. He demonstrates the ‘cross-cultural mentality’ and the interest in ‘universalism’ that characterize the work of these cultural icons. He argues that the creativity manifested by these individuals and the resulting shared cognitive identity were sufficiently radical and represent a genuine cognitive revolution in Indian history. Written in completely accessible and elegant English, this is a work for general readers. Those unfamiliar with the basics of the Bengal Renaissance will find it an excellent introduction to the area; scholars familiar with the area will find this perspective on cultural history from the perspective of science and psychology quite novel, unusual, and compelling.

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

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

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

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

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

‘Go, kiss the world’ were Subroto Bagchi’s blind mother’s last words to him. These words became the guiding principle of his life.

Through personal anecdotes and simple words of wisdom, Subroto Bagchi brings to the young professional lessons in working and living, energizing ordinary people to lead extraordinary lives.

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

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

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

The book embodies the research findings of the militant politics of the state of Tripura.

The book is the first attempt of its kind to pin-point the complex problems confronting Tripura even today. The author very earnestly pleads for the widening of our mental horizon and to think more in terms of national interest rather then petty party politics.Printed Pages: 188. 105742

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

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

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

A Beginning to an End: Darimbari
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904350; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
An era, when the flavour of British rule was still strong upon our palates. Maharajas and beautiful Maharanis were still not yet tales of the yore...a new breed of men had emerged...the office babus, clad in crisp dhoti and kurta with a flair for British English. Beral babu a clerk in a discrete bank was well settled into an uncomplicated and confortable life. His wife Binodini, sweet natured and ever accommodating...her whole life revolved around serving others and making her husband happy. Life for them was like the calm surface of a village pond...no ripples...no disturbances but for a bunch of ghosts who decide otherwise. Destiny changed hands one afternoon when a bond of friendship blossomed and this opened portals into the lives of the royal Raibahadurs. Lady Sreelatas horse is spooked by a dark mysterious figure. The Berals alone leave for Darimbari. They are received by Patta Nath and the fierce Khan. The majestic war horse Nestor draws the royal carriage to the Grande Hindol Kothi. The Maharaja and the beautiful Maharani of Darimbari welcome them with open arms. Binodini enters the maze to bring back sacred water from the fountain of Gautama, this saves the Maharanis life. Beral babu leaves on a quest with the handsome and dashing prince...to save the elder prince who had been kidnapped long ago by the demons of the underworld. Dolly D. a sharp shooting reporter is hot on the trails of the mysterious disappearances from the train; she knows somehow that these are connected to the world famous writer. Investigations by the DCP Avinash Bakshi reveal nothing except for the puzzling photos on Dollys camera. On such dark nights they say, the train still screeches to a halt...footsteps are heard and passengers are known to disappear. As for Beral babu and Binodini both of them display such courage and wisdom beyond extraordinaire. Fame, wealth and immortality were just rewards for their good deeds. What they actually earned as experience from their friends beyond this mortal world...changed their world forever.Printed Pages: 172. 104323

A story of how money corrupts the way people look at one another and how it can almost tear a family apart Vinuta marries Girish, a bank clerk, and starts living with his family in Bangalore. She adjusts to her new family well, looking after her husband, father-in-law and mother-in-law Gouramma, not taking to heart her mother-in-law’s constant picking. But when Girish’s elder brother Chandru, who is in the US, decides to get married, Vinuta has to listen to the constant comparisons made between her and Chandru’s wife, the ‘Dollar Bahu’, whose husband earns the valuable dollars that has brought the family its recent affluence. Vinuta slowly loses her peace of mind and health. Then Gouramma decides to visit her US-based son and daughter-in-law. Once there, she sees how liberating life can be, away from the strict norms that govern Indian middle-class life. But she also begins to understand that mere dollars cannot buy the love and respect that she gets as her due back in India. Does Gouramma forge a new relationship with Vinuta and can Vinuta forgive and forget the past? Printed Pages: 152. 020907

He works relentlessly and reaches the pinnacle of his industry, while Shrimati abandons her academic aspirations and becomes his uncomplaining shadow, silently fulfilling her duties as a corporate leader’s wife. But one day, while talking to an old professor, she starts examining what she has done with her life and realizes it is dismally empty . . . Gently Falls the Bakula is the story of a marriage that loses its way as ambition and self-interest take their toll.

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

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

Buddhism in the Classical Age
Sundeep Prakashan; New Delhi, India; 1985; 8175740221; Hardcover; New; New; 
There are quite a great number of books on Ancient Indian History by many scholars, both big and small Buddhism became a very popular topic for the last twenty-five years or more, i.e., after the 25th centenary celebrations of Buddha jayanti. although there was no dearth of scholars of Buddhism before that also. Encouraged by the new enthusiasm from that time many scholars produced different works on different aspects of Buddhism, As a result we have a rich harvest of books on Buddhism. The present work intends to project a picture of Buddhism during the Gupta. post-Gupta and prePala period, in all the aspects of history, art, architecture, inscriptions, literature, philosophy as well as the intercourse with China, which; by this time, became more interested in India (though it had received Buddhism much earlier) and was exchanging Buddhist scholar with India. A such, it is a work away from the trodden path, As yet, no such comprehensive work covering all the aspects of Buddhism has been produced and it is hoped that this book will cater to the needs of both scholars and research students as well as lay people who would like to have a clear picture of this period in all its details in a single volume.

The book is indispensable to those advanced students of oriental philosophy and religion who are devoted to research work, since no knowledge of oriental philosophy and religion will be complete without a clear understanding of Vedanta and the different types of Vaisnavism.

Along Deep Lonely Alleys: Baul-Fakir-Dervish of Bengal
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789385285691; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Are we truly familiar with the deeper connotations of the terms 'Baul-Bairagi-Dervish-Fakir-Sahajiya' or for that matter the Sufi and the Udasin-terms that we often loosely apply to certain people or sects while ploughing through the routine walks of life? H.A. Wilson (The Various Religious Cults of India) or Akshaykumar Dutta had rightly spotted these people and produced seminal works on this community more than a century and a half ago. In Along Deep Lonely Alleys: Baul-Fakir-Dervish of Bengal, the author opens the doors to a new vision of this unique world of wandering minstrels. Having travelled through the districts of Nadia, Murshidabad, Birbhum and Bardhaman - cutting across tiny hamlets and settlements tucked away in the farthest corners of Bengal - he completed an intensive research over a period of time spanning two decades. These spiritual communities and cults are unique as well as varied; the language they use and the norms of living they follow are remarkably mysterious and tinged with a certain rarity. The obscure mysticism in their songs and nuanced bends in their train of thoughts and philosophy have been portrayed in the book through an inclusive approach, with singular clarity and totality. A relatively unknown world thrives parallel to the extensive studies in folk sociology and rural cultural anthropology. Tracing this distinctive strain of folklore, music and spiritual beliefs, this book throws up certain characters which have no archetypes, lending a composite structure to it all.
