A Lament: Was Partition Inescapable?
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2007; 817822206X; Softcover; New; 
All of us have heard stories of partition and have also read about it in history books. Here is a real life story of a man who had gone through all hose circumstances. The author has penned down in the books his memories of the lost culture, the pain and agony caused by partition, his movement from the other side of the shadow life i.e., Pakistan to India, his post-partition struggles and his tussle with life. The book is in explicit picture of all those who had to leave their hearth and home and adjust to the multifarious demands of the new land and situations. Thought the book is the author’s autobiographical account, it actually epitomizes all those who have suffered, struggled and survived the tyranny, chaos and pain of partition. The book depicts the angst of the people who were trapped unaware into the violence created by the Muslim League of India and which finally led to their migration from the land of their forefathers. It would be of special interest to the generations born and brought up on both sides of the border line, after the Great Divide.Printed Pages: 433. 102544

Defence Offsets: International Experience and Implications for India
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2010; 9789380502052; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
‘Defence Offsets: International Experience and Implications for India’ is a book about India's defence offsets policy and an outline of international experience on implementing defence offsets. India’s defence offsets policy is nascent. The country’s defence expenditure has been growing considerably in recent years, and so is its defence capital acquisition budget that caters for the procurement of defence platforms and associated equipment. In the absence of sufficient indigenous capability to meet its defence requirements, the country is dependent on imports for a long time now. It has become one of the leading arms importing nations among the developing countries, with its burgeoning arms import bill having enormous scope for leveraging offsets. Self reliance in arms imports has been a long cherished aspiration of the country for several decades now, and offsets are expected to pave way for improving the self reliance quotient of the country significantly. The country offers huge opportunity for leading arms manufacturing companies of the world, from whom India imports its defence equipment, to undertake a variety of offset activities such as foreign direct investment in joint ventures involving India’s public and private sector companies; subcontracting work in the country; and, investment in country's defence research and development efforts etc. The book highlights whether defence offsets indeed deliver intended results and difficulties associated with such assessment. The perspectives of the United States, the leading arms manufacturing and exporting country of the world, have been brought out in detail. Similarly the views of European Union, whose members are both major providers as well as beneficiaries of defence offsets, have also been brought out. Finally, a few suggestions have been made for improving India’s defence offsets policy in the years to come. In sum, the book provides an overall view of defence offsets and relevance of international experience in this field for India’s defence offsets policy.Printed Pages: 252. 104415

Pre-Conceptional Care in Ayurveda (A Trial to Procure a Better Next Generation/Progeny)
Chaukhamba Sanskrit Pratishthan; Delhi, India; 2007; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
This Book highlights the pre-conceptional care of Ayurvedic basis, a recently developed contemporary where people now believe that the care of foetus should be given to a couple planning a Pregnancy well before the time of actual conception. It is developed as an extension of antenatal care to provide optimal Health to mother and foetus before completion of organogenisis. Even though the human bodies evolve as a routine part of human reproductive physiology, to lead a productive (Hita) and healthy (Sukha) life efficient body and mind are required which work as instruments in the hands of inner consciousness. To elevate the physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual status of foetus and to promote the multifaceted health status of next generation centuries back Ayurveda fixed some rules and regulations in the form of purva samyoga vidhi and garbhadhana in the Shareera Sthanas of all the Samhitas which is a little focussed topic in clinical and academic practices and the concept of including the conscious element 'the Atman' makes Ayurvedic Embryology a salient feature, more intricate, more complicated. Pre-conceptional care discusses care of future parents before conception in different planes, physical plane, psychological plane, to maintain the state of equilibrium in Doshas, Dhatus (physical entities), Mano-Gunas which is necessary in promoting the physical traits like Prakriti, Sara, Samhanana, Pramana etc. and the psychological qualities like intelligence (Dhi, Dhriti, Smriti) etc. Care in the plane of consciousness is advocated in the form of sacrifices and oblations to invoke the soul of higher origin.Printed Pages: 200. 101067

31131 V.P. Menon
Integration of the Indian States: With an Introduction By Asha Sarangi
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125054510; Softcover; New; 
Merging the 554 princely states with the Indian state was one of the most structurally monumental tasks that the Indian administration faced after Independence. V. P. Menon worked closely with Sardar Patel to help integrate the princely states with India. The book details the negotiations he carried out with each of these states. He has taken up the case of each state and shown how they were persuaded to sign the Instrument of Accession which made them a part of the Indian union. He also shows how various states were grouped together to form new administrative units. This reissue of the volume has a new Introduction that contextualises it for contemporary readers. It gives us a brief account of the author, the book and the background in which it was written. It tells us how the process of carving out states from the jigsaw puzzle that India was after Independence is something that continues.Printed Pages: 534. 101905

Vivaha Samskara in Grhya-Sutras of the Four Vedas
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8124607494; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Vivaha (marriage), in Hindu society, is one of the most important samskaras, out of the sixteen sacraments, which a person steps in with full understanding/consciousness. Marriage is a fascinating experience that stays alive in one’s mind throughout the life. The mantras and shlokas of the Grihya-Sutras of the four Vedas, chanted in this ritual, are in Sanskrit and a vast majority is unaware of their meanings and just follows the instructions of the celebrant priest, purohita. The author delves deep into the Grihya-Sutras of Vedas and brings forth the details of vivaha samskara — principles, philosophy, practices, rituals and so on. Grihya-Sutras — Ashvalayana, Shankhayana and Kaushitaki of Rigveda; Paraskara (Sukhla Yajurveda), Apastamba and Hiranyakeshin (Krishna Yajurveda), Baudhayana, Varaha, Manava, Agniveshya, Bharadvaja, Kathaka and Vaikhanasa of Yajurveda; Gobhila, Khadira and Jaimini of Samaveda; and Kaushika of Atharvaveda — are well explored and seriously analysed, having given the original mantras in Sanskrit with their English translation. Of a rare kind, this book does comparative analyses of the number and type of rituals in each Grihya-Sutra and the order of performance of rituals. This scholarly work creates a sudden seriousness and sanctity to vivaha samskara through the detailing of mantras and the rituals. Being in it, one is not far off the Vedic period, giving a new meaning and dimension to our understanding of Hindu vivaha samskara and its sanctity. Printed Pages: 493. 100335

Conflict in Sri Lanka: Internal and External Consequences
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380177960; Hardcover; New; New; 
Sri Lanka militarily defeated LTTE after two and a half decades long drawn out war which killed over 70,000 persons and left many more homeless. Though the war is over, the conflict will be far from being resolved unless its underlying political and constitutional complexities are addressed. Enormous mistrust has deepened between political, religious and ethnic groups. The implications of the perception of injustice to the Tamil minority have complicated the political situation in neighboring India and have led to anguish in many countries where Tamil Diaspora is concentrated. The indications are that the Sri Lankan Government is addressing these issues to resolve the conflict and ensure equity and justice to all its citizens. The conflict contains elements of economic, ethnic, political and use of state power. India’s involvement in this conflict included military, economic and political initiatives. These factors offer a valuable case study with relevance to South Asian region.Printed Pages: 280. 103204

Global Nuclear Disarmament: Geopolitical Necessities
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789381411315; Hardcover; New; New; 
The DPG was chosen as a research institution to assist in the deliberations of the International Commission on Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament, constituted by the Australian and Japanese governments. The support of the NTI to DPG's efforts has been immense and definitive.The first decade of 21st century has seen a resurgence of support for global nuclear disarmament. A cascade of nuclear disarmament proposal has emerged from different sources. India has consistently favored complete global nuclear disarmament, even as it laid the foundations of a nuclear energy programme. Notwithstanding the nuclear tests, Indian policy on global nuclear disarmament has not been disavowed.Global nuclear disarmament is closely linked to geo-political conditions. Unless such conditions are favourable, states are unlikely to take initiatives to either reduce or eliminate their nuclear weapons stockpiles. This book examines the geopolitical necessities which will encourage nuclear disarmament globally. It also contrasts them with the geopolitical realities currently prevailing which impact on nuclear disarmament. The papers in the book bring forth both the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead."Printed Pages: 142. 103225

Nuclear Disarmament: India -EU Perspectives
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380177441; Hardcover; New; New; 
Indian policy on nuclear disarmament has been one of long standing support and approval of measures leading to it. The first decade of 21st century has seen a resurgence of support for global nuclear disarmament. A cascade of nuclear disarmament proposals has emerged from different sources. There has been little interaction between India and Europe on nuclear issues. The seminar on Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament held in June 2010 in New Delhi was one such attempt to build awareness on Indian and European perspectives on nuclear disarmament. This book is based on the seminar held in New Delhi. The position of Germany and Poland were of special interest to the discourse and this volume offers an excellent insight into it.Printed Pages: 140. 103226

Internal Conflict in Nepal: Transnational Consequences
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380177649; Hardcover; New; New; 
Neglect of socio- economic needs, inequality and injustice in Nepali society attributed to the genesis of the Maoist insurgency in Nepal. In early 1990, a mass upsurge Jana Andolan paved way for multi party of governance in Nepal. The opening up of the polity increased the awareness of inequality which helped Maoist insurgency to grow dramatically. However, in November 2005, a Comprehensive Peace Agreement was reached between the Communist Party of Nepal (CPN-UML) and other main stream political parties. Monarchy was abolished. Election to the Constituent Assembly was held and a coalition government was been put in place. Inadequate steps to address the ethnic, economic and political aspirations of multi- ethnic groups have caused further unrest and created conditions for newer conflicts. Nepal shares border with India particularly with Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, there is free movement across the borders. This facilitates movement of mafia groups, drug trafficking and political activities. Control of cross border activities remains difficult and led to serious cross border implications.Printed Pages: 284. 103239

Policy Choices in Internal Conflicts: Governing Systems and Outcomes
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789382652052; Hardcover; New; New; 
In the course of the research project Internal Conflicts and Transnational Consequences, the CSA has published eleven volumes. These books cover three internal conflicts in India and those in Nepal, Myanmar and Sri Lanka. Each of the conflict was studied in detail with the help of experts from different disciplines and different countries. This is the final volume of the Project which consolidates the studies done earlier, aims at crystallising some useful lessons for the countries studied and also others who continue to have long running internal conflicts. The constraints in trying to resolve the conflicts by the states and addressing the nuances of the consequences are quite complex. This volume attempts to analyse these issues and helps in identifying positive and negative outcomes of the way different governing systems have addressed the conflicts. The study highlights the importance of not only understanding the major internal conflicts but also anticipating and identifying the problems and difficulties that arise from the consequences and throws up useful policy pointers.Printed Pages: 272. 103240

Internal Conflicts: A Four State Analysis (India-Nepal-Sri Lanka-Myanmar)
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789382573883; Hardcover; New; New; 
In a new approach to conflict management and subsequent resolution, instead of focusing on the causes of the conflicts alone, Centre for Security Analysis (CSA) explored the consequences of the protracted conflicts Northeast of India, Jammu and Kashmir, Naxalism, Myanmar, Nepal and Sri Lanka to examine the way consequences undermine the states' efforts to bring stability, development and peace in the region. Six conflict specific studies done in the four countries established the need to analyse three major issues in greater detail ethnic/cultural identity, political management and economic factors. CSA engaged experts from India, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Myanmar to analyse as to how and what role the identity factor played out in each of the four countries and how their respective governments tried to politically manage the conflict and the consequences.Printed Pages: 286. 103241

Internal Conflicts: Military Perspectives
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789381411339; Hardcover; New; New; 
Internal conflicts have replaced interstate wars in the 21st century. The scale and intensities of these conflicts have widened. Many of these conflicts are protracted and intractable resulting in security, economic and political implications not only within the country but also in neighborhood resulting in internationalization of these conflicts. In many cases the consequences have turned into the causes of continuing conflicts. These developments have made the resolution of internal conflicts complex and stretched the capacities of the states affected by them. As the states face internal conflicts, they are inclined to depend on the armed forces to curb these conflicts followed by a slew of other approaches, viz, development & economic and political. This volume comprises of papers written by a former governor and retired armed forces officials from India and Nepal who had vast experience in handling these conflicts. The observations and views put forward by them provide valuable insight for policy makers, academia and researchers.?Printed Pages: 336. 103242

Jammu and Kashmir: Impact on Polity, Society and Economy
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789381411216; Hardcover; New; New; 
The problem in Jammu and Kashmir, having caused three major wars between India and Pakistan, has since late 1980's become a serious internal security problem. This is a politico-religious conflict reflecting elements of secession, self rule and greater economic control. Its effects are not only across the border but also global, with its potential to lead to war between two nuclear weapon states. The CSA study focuses on the consequences since causes remain historical while consequences are realities which societies and the government have to face. In long lasting internal conflicts, consequences tend to influence the conflict and even become the drivers of conflict. The generation which has been born and brought up facing the consequences also develops stakes in them. This volume focuses external and internal consequences of the conflict exploring the impact on governance, economy, interprovincial and interreligious relations, and specific segments of the society. It comprises of twelve research papers presented at the seminar held in Jammu in September 2010 in collaboration with the Department of Strategic and Regional Studies (DSRS), University of Jammu.Printed Pages: 398. 103243

Post Conflict Sri Lanka: Rebuilding of Society
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789381411322; Hardcover; New; New; 
CSA in collaboration with think tanks in Sri Lanka has organised studies and seminars over the years to address the internal conflict in Sri Lanka at its various stages. The end of the armed conflict in Sri Lanka brings a new era of hope and optimism to millions of Sri Lankans. It also poses formidable challenges to the Government of Sri Lanka in the nation building process. Sri Lanka is fully engaged in rebuilding its society. At this juncture, it is worthwhile to reflect on its achievements, shortfalls and gaps and take stock of the current state of affairs, look closely at some of the variables that would speed up the post war rehabilitation, reconstruction and rebuilding and explore as to how these processes can be made sustainable and lasting. To address these issues, CSA engaged nine experts from India and Sri Lanka to carry out research on themes managing political challenges in rebuilding the society, socio-economic challenges and challenges of harmonising ethnic diversity. This volume comprises of the papers presented by these nine experts at a seminar jointly organised by CSA and RCSS Colombo.Printed Pages: 206. 103244

Internal Conflicts in Myanmar: Transnational Consequences
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380177632; Hardcover; New; New; 
In the recent years, the interstate wars have declined and intrastate wars/ internal conflicts are on rise. Impacts of internal conflicts are no longer limited within a nation state, they incur international consequences of disturbing magnitude.Myanmar (Burma) is affected by two types of internal conflicts. The first is between the military government and various ethnic groups spread along the international borders with India, China, Laos and Thailand. These ethnic minorities speak different languages, have different cultures and have taken up arms. They seek to have a say in the political process, economic development of their regions and the right to practice their language, culture and religion without constraints. They have been operating across the international borders. In the absence of economic security, law and order and effective governance to meet their needs, they tend to indulge in various illegal activities like arms smuggling and drug trafficking having effect on the neighbourhood. The second internal conflict is due to the aspirations of the people demanding democratic government which is being severely put down by the military junta. The conflict arising out of the democratic aspirations of the people and the approach of the military government has serious implications to the neighbouring countries.Printed Pages: 274. 103248

Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380177779; Hardcover; New; New; 
Naxalism or Left Wing extremism is a major internal security threat faced by India. Though Naxalism predates independence, it was limited to small pockets of areas but now has spread to underdeveloped areas from Bihar to Tamil Nadu. It is a well organized underground movement with an ideological base in rural areas spread over in the interior of many states. The Naxal movement is a complex socio- politico- economic phenomenon. Their violent methods against the government officials, law and order agencies and business community are causes, needing immediate and serious attention.Printed Pages: 190. 103304

Jankiharana of Kumaradasa: A Critically Study (Cantos. 16-20)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 8120809750; Hardcover; New; New; 
Janakiharana of Kumaradasa is the first Sanskrit Mahakavya, so far as the extant literature goes, to deal solely with the whole of the Ramayana-story. Its further interest is that it was produced in Ceylon, showing thereby the wider world over which Sanskrit had its sway. After manuscripts of the full text of the poem in twenty cantos had to come to light in South India, what is now presented was the first systematic and critical study to be undertaken to the author and the text and its position vis-a-vis other Mahakavyas. In addition to the above study and the critical edition of the cantos which were at that time unpublished, the book offers an examination of the large number of extra-verses found in some MSS of the text and showing them as interpolations. 102590

Maratha Confederacy: A Study in Its Origin and Development
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1993; 81-215-0570-2; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
This is a pioneering work in which the nature of Maratha power in eighteenth century in India has been carefully analyzed. The political domination of the Indian subcontinent by the Maratha sardars was so comprehensive that the terms Maratha history and eighteenth century Indian history are, by and large, synonymous. However the transformation of the real authority at the centre from the Chatrapati to the Peshva and then to the Karbhari weakened the Chatrapati, the primary cohesive force of Maratha power. The relationship of the central government with the Maratha sardars had different significant facets; administrative, financial and military features of the Maratha confederacy, which are vitally significant in understanding the nature of Maratha power. These developments and relationships are explored in this penetrating work by V.S. Kadam with particular reference to provinces like Gujarat, Malva, south Rajputana and Bundelkhand which has been meeting grounds of the north and the south. The roles of the most prominent Maratha sardars like Shinde, Holkar, Pavar, Gaikvad and Nagpurkar Bhosale, in addition to the not-so-prominent sardars, in the Maratha confederacy and their changing relations with the central authority have been analyzed with the help of unpublished documents from Pune, Kolhapur, Baroda and Sitansu archives.

Married to seductively beautiful Devyani, in love with her maid Sharmishtha, and father of five sons from two women, yet Yayati unabashedly declares, 'My lust for pleasure is unsatisfied...'.His quest for the carnal continued, sparing not even his youngest son, and exchanging his old age for his son's youth...Printed Pages: 254. 106646

Handbook of International Humanitarian Law in South Asia
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0195685849; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
To date our society has failed to abolish the use of violence both in inter-community and international relations. Accepting this fact as a given, international humanitarian law (IHL) maintains a focus on the protection of victims of violence, on the basis of the principle of 'elementary considerations of humanity'. It does not concern itself with questions about the legitimacy, or otherwise, of actions taken by parties to an armed conflict. In South Asia since the 1940s, there have been numerous occasions of bloodletting demanding humanitarian assistance. In this handbook specialists from around the region present studies on various facets of IHL, both doctrinal and empirical. They explore the evolution of the principles of IHL in South Asia, deeply embedded in the religious and cultural traditions of the region. They go on to analyse contemporary national attitudes of individual South Asian countries to IHL and various relevant events including the Partition and mass migration, 'police action' in a princely state, instances of insurgency, emergence of a new country from a bloody war, influx of refugees, internal and international armed conflicts, and the setting up of new National Red Cross Committees boosted by the presence of a Regional Delegation of the International Committee of the Red Cross. The handbook has separate sections on the role of humanitarian organizations in the promotion of IHL in the region, the relationship of IHL to states of emergency, to military law, and to UN Peace Operations. In two useful appendices it offers a factsheet on the status of IHL treaties in South Asia and a chart of the status of IHL treaties around the world. 019725

Magic Seeds: A Novel
Picador; London, UK; 2004; 0330485202; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
Willy Chandra - whom we first met in Half a Life - is a man who has allowed one identity after another to be thrust upon him. Now, in his early 40s, after a peripatetic life, he succumbs to the demanding encouragement of his sister - and his own listlessness - and joins an underground movement in India ostensibly devoted to unfettering the lower castes. But seven years of revolutionary campaigns and several years in jail convince him that the revolution "had nothing to do with the village people we said we were fighting for," and he feels himself further than ever "from his own history and...from the ideas of himself that might have come to him with that history." When he returns to England where, 30 years before, his psychological and physical wanderings began, he finds the fruit of another unexpected social revolution (more magic seeds), and he comes to see himself as a man "serving an endless prison sentence" - a revelation that may finally release him into his true self. Magic Seeds is a masterpiece, written with all the depth and resonance, the clarity of vision and precision of language that are the hallmarks of this brilliant writer. Printed Pages: 294. 033265
