Abhinav Publications/Kaveri Books; New Delhi, India; 8170175283; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Tagore-Nama explores de novo some of the less chartered domains of Tagore’s plays, poems and rhymes. In the genre of symbolic drama, the exploration areas are the absence of hero in the play; death used not as termination but starting point in life and action; Tagore’s terpsichorean persona; and their overall semiotics. The plays analysed are: Sharadotsav (1908), Raja (1912), Dakghar (1912), Achalayatan (1912), Falgunee (1916), Muktadhara (1922), Rakta Karabi (1924), Natir Puja (1926), Kaler Yatra (1932), Tasher Desh (1933), and among dance-dramas, Shapmochan (1931), Chitrangada (1936), Chandalika (1938) and Shyama (1939).

Encyclopaedia of Astrology, 5 Vols
Chaukhambha Publications; New Delhi, India; 2002; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Astrology is the Science which classifies and correlates causes and effects. It is the science which demonstrates that the celestial bodies are the prime movers (causes) which exert forces on the Earth and upon things on the Earth, thus producing patent effects of an eventful character. Astrology is the science which explains the natures laws that connect stellar dynamic causations with mundane events, and which traces out the systems of chains of causes and effects. But Astrology is not only a science. It is also a philosophy. For it seeks to show that each and every human being has an appointed and pre-ordained DESTINY to fulfil. It is by means of the scientific principles on which the practice of Astrology is based, that a competent astrologer can proceed to show the individual the path of her personal destiny through the process of interpreting the native's horoscope. It is from the study of the elements of a birth chart that a modern astrologer can accurately determine the CHARACTER, OPPORTUNITIES, and DESTINY, of the owner of the horoscope. Monsieur G. L. Brahy (a well-known Belgian astrologer) says in his Book Confessions of an Astrologer. "It will be seen that astrological diagnosis ought to be understood in the same .sense as that of a lawyer, for example, or that of A Doctor of medicine. It consist essentially of putting the patient on guard against risks which he would not have suspected in time had he been left to his own resources, and of indicating the precautions which should be taken. It ought to have as object the facilitation of the undertaking of responsibilities, to show the individual the extent of his duties towards himself, towards his family, towards his superiors, and even towards his inferiors. If one reflects deeply, one can see that the field of utility which presents itself therein is truly immense!" The Encyclopaedia of Astrology is arranged thematically in five broad catagories : - An Introduction to Astrology - Scientific Astrology. A Complete Guide to the Art of Erecting a Horoscope - Casting Horoscopes. Practical Meth Odology - The Message of the Stars. Stars and Their Role in Astrology - Reading Horoscopes. Detailed Study of Famous Horoscopes The Encyclopaedia of Astrology is possibly the first such attempt to deal with the subject in a comprehensive yet simple manner.Printed Pages: 1542. 100643

Industrial Relations in India: Towards a New Socio-Political Approach
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8125062335; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Industrial Relations refers to the social relationships that people enter into to produce material goods and services. In an inegalitarian society such as India, the unequal relationship between capital and labour leads to inequality in the industry. The struggle for equality often expresses itself in various forms—for example, unionisation.This volume focuses on the sociology and politics of the relations between management and workforce, and details the highly statist and legalist Industrial Relations ‘system’ in India. It discusses the role of dominant institutions, such as managements, unions, and law and jurisprudence in the way this system evolved. Drawing on a broad corpus of literature on capital-labour relations, and detailed analyses of case law on retrenchment and closures, the volume argues for building and strengthening labour unions, and an independent politics of the working class in India.At a time when a comprehensive Indian Industrial Relations theory is yet to be formulated, this book advocates for a new socio-political approach, as against the widely prevalent techno-managerial view. It fills a lacuna in the extant literature, which is either excessively theoretical—thereby glossing over realities such as conflict—or rooted in Western examples, with no reference to the Indian context. Students and scholars of sociology, economics and law, and organisations working on labour issues will find this book very useful. Printed Pages: 223. 108405

The Vedic Epiphany: The Vedic Action, 2 Vols
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1994; 8185853029; Softcover; New; 
The Vedas are the ancient-most and profound esoteric mysteries. They are authentic and immutable, inspired and infallible, sempiternal and supernatural, apaurmseya. They are the origin and the basis of Indian ethos and culture, and through the centuries have exerted a lasting influence on the life and thought of India. They are expressions of the most illumined minds overflowing with supreme realisations of the Truth. They uphold a still earlier Tradition of great awakening in consciousness; they once again kindle the Vaishwa-nara Fire in the hearts of men... The Vedas speak of the eternal truths inherent in Nature mostly revealed to them in their meditations. They embody the age long quest of the Soul for Immortality as well as its absolute fulfillment. The Rishis with their dynamic power of vision not only give the Creative Word but also carve out the Way leading to Immortality. By performing sacrifice, by Lupus and consecration, the Rishis realise the highest of all the lights, the Light Supreme, the all-pervading Knowledge, idamsrestham jyotisamm. They experience the whole of Creation as a single phenomenon, and see the-yonder sky-nay, the entire Universe as an extension of their inner being.Printed Pages: 572. 102115

Fiction as Window: Critiquing the Indian Literary Cultural Ethos since the 1980s
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8125036571; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Fiction in India has witnessed great changes since the 1980s. Written, critiqued, read, patronised and translated from the myriad subject positions that Indian culture is teeming with, fiction is a valuable site from which to critique the Indian literary cultural ethos. Fiction as Window, in its first part, uses the fiction produced across languages in India during this vibrant period to critically look at the issues that criticism, patronage and translation of fiction throws up. Cutting across languages, in its second part, the book analyses novels from various Indian languages and those written or translated into English in an attempt to see how these issues are fictionalised. The book cuts new ground with its blend of the literary and the aliterary and its analyses of awards foundations as sites of production of a cultural tradition. The field of literary studies in India since the 1980s has seen a decisive shift towards greater interdisciplinarity. Neither is literature any longer merely a connoisseur’s delight nor is literary criticism any more barely an exercise in aesthetic interpretation. Subversive conceptual changes have made it impossible for literature to remain an isolated creative activity. Literary criticism has perforce to encompass these changes and study their relation to the prevailing forms, themes and techniques in literature today using an integrated methodology. Even as creative literature is fast becoming a discursive space where pressing issues and concerns can be debated and discussed, literary criticism is compelled to turn ideological and is showing an increasing awareness, in a self-reflexive manner, of the paradigms and assumptions that inform its own activity. This study aims at examining the literary cultural ethos in India during this stimulating and perhaps even turbulent period. Printed Pages: 262. 026759

Games Indians Play: Why we are the Way we are
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0143063111; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 Cms x 19 Cms 
In a rare attempt to understand the Indianness of Indians—among the most intelligent people in the world, but also, to a dispassionate eye, perhaps the most baffling—V. Raghunathan uses the props of game theory and behavioural economics to provide an insight into the difficult conundrum of why we are the way we are. He puts under the scanner our attitudes towards rationality and irrationality, selflessness and selfishness, competition and cooperation, and collaboration and deception. Drawing examples from the way we behave in day-to-day situations, Games Indians Play tries to show how in the long run each one of us—whether businessmen, politicians, bureaucrats, or just plain us—stand to profit more if we were to assume a little self-regulation, give fairness a chance and strive to cooperate and collaborate a little more even if self-interest were to be our main driving force.

Third Man: Recollections From a Life In Cricket
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789384030827; Softcover; New; 
Revelling in the challenge of his position as Third Man, Ramnarayan was an integral part of many Hyderabad victories in the Ranji Trophy, performing alongside names like Abbas Ali Baig, Abid Ali, ML Jaisimha and MAK Pataudi. He also had the opportunity to bowl to stalwarts of Indian cricket like GR Vishwanath, Ashok Mankad, Brijesh Patel and the Amarnath brothers and rub shoulders with the likes of V. V. Kumar, Bishan Bedi, Salim Durrani and Hanumant Singh in the vibrant first class scene of a largely amateur era.The stories featured in this fine book are recollections of a life spent playing and observing cricket. They are stories of a time when sheer love for the game drove people to cricket grounds. At a time when rampant commercialization has overtaken the game, these stories bring back memories of a simpler time. Nostalgic and insightful, Third Man is a welcome addition to cricketing lore contributed by a former cricketer who, as a journalist today, straddles the worlds of sports and arts. 109701

Analysing Social Opposition to Reforms: The Electricity Sector in India
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8178298589; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book examines how market contexts shape the opposition of people to public sector reforms, with evidence from the Indian electricity sector. Based on a survey of 7,000 households in 14 Indian states and following a rational choice framework, it analyses the response of households to the prospect of privatization of electricity utilities. Analysing Social Opposition to Reforms: The Electricity Sector in India discusses the possibility of compensating losers and sequencing reform strategies. It uses empirical evidence from the Indian electricity sector to suggest that much of the opposition can be explained in terms of the (short term) losses due to reforms. The book uses insights gained from Indian data to discuss the likelihood of opposition to reforms in other public services and also to examine the performance of electricity reforms in other Asian countries. It is one of the few empirical studies on how gains and losses affect opposition/support to economic/institutional reforms globally and as such is a valuable contribution to development studies, political economy and governance. The book will be of great interest to development professionals, policy makers and researchers. Printed Pages: 248. 028565

The National Mission for Manuscripts was established in February 2003 by the Ministry of Culture, Government of India with the purpose of locating, documenting, preserving and disseminating the knowledge content of India's handwritten manuscripts, said to be the largest collection of handwritten knowledge documents in the world. While looking ahead to reconnect with the knowledge of the past, the Mission is in the process of trying to re-contextualize the knowledge contained in manuscripts for the present and the future generations. The Mission launched a lecture series titled “Tattvabodha” in January 2005. Since then, a monthly lecture series is organized in Delhi and other academic centres all over the country. Tattvabodha has established itself as a forum for intellectual discourse, debate and discussion. Eminent scholars representing different aspects of India's knowledge systems have addressed and interacted with highly receptive audiences over the course of the past few years. This volume, fifth in the series, contains eleven papers presented by well-known authors in different Tattvabodha lectures organized by the Mission. These papers are in English, Hindi and Sanskrit, covering a variety of subjects of Indian knowledge system. The authors deliberate on topics such as the closeness of the Rigvedic language to the Proto-Indo-European language; different branches of learning in medieval Bengal; unique manuscripts of Asiatic Society; eighteenth-century Calcutta based on the leads from the British Official Records; Sanskrit as the mind of Silk Route; formation of Kashmiri language; a comparative study of Bengali, Hindi and Malayalam Ramayanas; Arabic manuscripts and Arabi-Malayalam literature of Kerala; Bhakti Literature of Rajasthan; manuscripts on Ayurveda; and published and unpublished commentaries of Bhagavata Purana.These scholarly articles should invoke keen interest among academicians, scholars and students of Indology.

Anatomy of an Abduction: How the Indian Hostages in Iraq Were Freed
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0143103857; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
In July 2004, a convoy of KGL trucks drove into Iraq from Kuwait carrying electronic equipment for the American occupiers, when the worst happened—three Indian drivers, three Kenyans and an Egyptian were ambushed, detained by unknown Iraqi dissidents and accused of collaborating with the Americans. A deadline was set for their execution. The countdown had begun. The abduction drama that ensued had all the ingredients of a thriller: nail-biting suspense, high profile media coverage, international outrage at the plight of these humble workers, and political tightrope-walking. This gripping behind-the-scenes narration recounts what really happened in Baghdad when a team of negotiators was sent there and entered into secret talks through an intermediary whose very existence was not in public domain. Anatomy of an Abduction reveals for the first time the Indian crisis management team's handling of the situation over forty-four days in occupied, lawless Iraq. The book gives an insight into the pressures that governments have to face as more and more innocent people become pawns in global chess games. Printed Pages: 248. 021455

Sociology of Health and Medicine: New Perspectives
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2014; 0198099134; Hardcover; New; New; 
Health and medicine have so far not constituted a significant area of study within the social sciences in India. Given that the experience of disease and its detection are deeply embedded in social settings, foundational questions on the meaning and understanding of health and the role of medicine need to be raised. How do we distinguish between health and ill-health? How do we differentiate between a medical problem and a lifestyle issue? Does the medical establishment diagnose lifestyle problems as diseases and treat them through medication? What is the impact of privatization and corporatization of medicine on health? Sociology of Health and Medicine discusses these and other, essential questions. This work introduces medical pluralism into the social theory of health and medicine, which has hitherto worked with the idea of medicine and body in the singular. It draws insights in a comparative perspective, going beyond purely biomedicine to consider the significance of Indian, Asian and African medicinal systems. Encompassing both theoretical writings and empirical studies, this is a timely addition to the discourse on health and medicine in our times. Printed Pages: 332. 110217
