The Last Durbar
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174365834; Softcover; New; 
The existing histories of the Partition of British India have very little chance of capturing the moods and mindsets, the helplessness and the frustration of those who steered the course. The histories written thus far have either focused on political narratives or on the ideological analysis. More recently, the spotlight has turned towards the madness and pathology of hatred and mass murders. The Last Durbar tells it as it was - without the epic quality of conventional writing filled with the rhetoric of freedom and greatness, and without the legalese and constitution-making vocabulary of the Transfer of Power. The personal and political meet and separate at the last durbar, with Louis Mountbatten on the throne, and the modern, constitutional 'durbars'hail the advent of freedom and bid farewell to each other. The play is based on private papers of Mountbatten, including verbatim records, testimonies, and discussions of the leading political figures. It is a nuanced and multi-layered account of the months and days that eventually led to the independent nations of India and Pakistan. Drama is the only genre of written history that allows us to fully portray the complexity of such a process and frame the atmosphere to the concentrated moment. The history of Partition has never before been told in this way. Printed Pages: 194. 108571

Women in Agriculture: A Socio-Economic Analysis
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1992; 8170223636; Hardcover; New; New; 
There is hardly any activity in agricultural production except ploughing in which women are not actively involved. The crucial role of women in agriculture, allied occupations and household activities have, however, been underestimated and valued. There is hardly any appreciation and recognition of their extensive contribution. By and large, they have remained as "invisible workers". This study investigates the nature and extent of involvement of rural women and men in agriculture and home activities as well as the extent of exposure of modern crop technology to farm women. It prepares a comparative drudgery index for agriculture operations and examines the impact of employment, displacement, work load and income. The author has also studied the income. The author has also studied the extent of contribution of women in cultivation of major crops, role of women in decision-making in farming and the utilization pattern of savings in the family. Providing an insight into a typical agrarian profile of farm women, the study suggests several far-reaching implications to the planners, policy makers, administrators, scientists and change agents for transforming an agricultural based rural society.

31206 Shashi Kapoor and Deepa Gahlot
The Prithviwallahs
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8174363483; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 10 x 10 Inches 
On 15 January 1944, Prithviraj Kapoor, already a film star, realized a long-cherished dream, and Prithvi Theatres was born. Over the next 16 years, Prithviraj Kapoor’s repertory toured the country, giving one remarkable performance after another: Shakuntala (1944), Pathan (1947) and Paisa (1953) among them—a total of 2662 performances over 5982 days in 112 places! This was theatre history in the making, as stars were born and legends created. Uzra Mumtaz, her sister, Zohra Segal, Prithviraj’s cousins, Premnath, Rajindernath, Sajjan and Mohan Saigal, L.V. Prasad, and the young Kapoors—Raj, Shammi and Shashi, made sterling appearances on the Prithvi stage. It remained for Shashi, his wife Jennifer and their children, Kunal and Sanjna, to fulfil Prithviraj’s last dream and give Prithvi Theatres a home of its own. On 5 November 1978, the curtain rose on G.P. Deshpande’s Uddhwasta Dharmashala, directed by Om Puri, and Prithvi Theatres, the travelling theatre company, was reborn as Prithvi Theatre, the building that has become a landmark in Mumbai. The passion that drove Prithviraj continues to inspire one hallmark performance after another from actors and directors like Naseeruddin Shah, Nadira Zaheer Babbar, Feroz Khan, Dinesh Thakur, Makarand Deshpande and a host of others who form the galaxy of stars in the world of theatre. This book is the story of a theatre that has become a living legend, and the men and women who made it happen. Printed Pages: 153. 007305

Riot: A Novel
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2001; 0143030906; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 14 Cms x 21 Cms 
Who killed twenty-four year old Priscilla Hart? And why would anyone want to murder this idealistic American student who had come to India to volunteer in a women’s health programme? In this novel, the author experiments brilliantly with narrative form, chronicling the mystery of Priscilla’s death through the often contradictory accounts of a dozen or more characters. Intellectually provocative and emotionally charged, Riot is a novel about the ownership of history, about love, hate, cultural collision, religious fanaticism, and the impossibility of knowing the truth.

31212 Shashi Tharoor
India: From Midnight to the Millennium and Beyond
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0143103245; Revised Edition; Paperback; New; 14 Cms x 21 Cms 
India: From Midnight to the Millennium and Beyond is an eloquent argument for the importance of India to the future of the industrialized world. Shashi Tharoor shows compellingly that India stands at the intersection of the most significant questions facing the world today. If democracy leads to inefficient political infighting, should it be sacrificed in the interest of economic well-being? Does religious fundamentalism provide a way for countries in the developing world to assert their identity in the face of Western hegemony, or is there a case for pluralism and diversity amid cultural and religious traditions? Does the entry of Western consumer goods threaten a country’s economic self-sufficiency, and is protectionism the only guarantee of independence? The answers to such questions will determine what the nature of our world is in the twenty-first century. And since Indians account for almost one-sixth of the world’s population today, their choices will resonate throughout the globe. Shashi Tharoor deals with this vast theme in a work of remarkable depth and startling originality, combining elements of political scholarship, personal reflection, memoir, fiction, and polemic, all illuminated in vivid and compelling prose.

Bookless in Baghdad: And Other Writings About Reading
Viking; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0670058203; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Shashi Tharoor began reading books—Enid Blyton’s Noddy series—when he was three. By the time he was ten, he had published his first work of fiction, Operation Bellows, a credulity-stretching saga of an Anglo-Indian fighter pilot. In between were years when he read a book a day. And in the years since, he has published eight books and written for many Indian and foreign publications. Bookless in Baghdad brings together pieces written over the past decade by this compulsive reader and prolific writer on the subject closest to his heart: reading. In these essays on books, authors, reviews, critics, literary festivals, literary aspirants, Empire, and India, Tharoor takes us on a delightful journey of discovery. He wanders the ‘book souk’ in a Baghdad under sanctions where the middle-class are selling their volumes so that they can afford to live; analyses the Indianness of Salman Rushdie; discusses P.G. Wodehouse’s enduring popularity in India; and drives around Huesca looking to pay an idiosyncratic tribute to George Orwell. There are excursions into the pitfalls of reviewing, explorations of the ‘anxiety of audience’ of Indian English writers, and a wicked account of how Norman Mailer dealt with a negative review.

Nehru: The Invention of India
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0143104047; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This short biography examines a great figure of twentieth-century nationalism from the vantage point of the beginning of the twenty-first. Deftly weaving personal facets with historical happenings, it tells the fascinating story of Jawaharlal Nehru's life. Finely portrayed is the unremarkable youth who found his calling in politics and followed Gandhi into British jails; the aristocrat born to privilege who was moved by the plight of peasants because of his socialist convictions; the cosmopolitan who became the hero of the nationalist youth; the die-hard secularist who confronted Hindu mobs, trying to stop the Partition violence; and the Prime Minister who desired to educate the poor, illiterate and idolizing Indian masses in democracy by his own personal example. The book also analyses the principal pillars of Nehru's legacy to India: democratic institution building, staunch pan-Indian secularism, socialist economics at home and a foreign policy of non-alignment. Tharoor sees the first two as having been indispensable to the survival of our pluralism, and non-alignment to preserving our self-respect, though socialist economics, he believes, was disastrous—boosting poverty, stagnation and widespread corruption. All of these, however, were integral to a vision of Indianness that is fundamentally contested today. Beautifully written and sparkling with fresh insights, full of anecdotes retold with a novelist's pen, this book offers us a reinterpretation of an extraordinary man and his times.

The Homecoming
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0143065017; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 x 20 Cm 
Javed Sharif returns home to Srinagar for his father’s eighty-fourth birthday. He returns with a sense of well-being, despite troubles, the violence and the bitterly cold weather. Unexpectedly, his dreams of retiring and settling in Kashmir again are shattered by a knock on the door on the day of the birthday party and, as he watches his life unravel, his world will never be the same again. The Homecoming is the story of one family, but also of the many families in Kashmir whose lives have been destroyed by decades of violence and uncertainty. Deeply moving and disturbingly honest, this is a haunting tale that is political yet profoundly personal, and tells of the pain and suffering that is a result of the cruelty—and ultimately the indifference—of the state.

Kumarajiva: Philosopher and Seer
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789380935614; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
Kumarajiva, (Jiumóluóshi in Chinese), a philosopher and seer, had a long cherished mission: propagation of the true spirit of Buddhism. He broke political, geographical, cultural and linguistic barriers; travelled through barren lands and rivers, mountains and forbidding terrains to bequeath to us a casket of sacred sutras as the most authoritative presentations by translating them from Sanskrit into Chinese. He created pure, boundless and unthinkable versions of the sutras as an obeisance to the sacred voice so that one could bathe in the pure pond of the Dharma. “Kumarajiva: Philosopher and Seer” is a compendium of recent researches on the brilliance that ushers through his legacy, enshrined in thousands of monasteries in China, Korea and Japan, preserving the heritage - his translations of the sacred Sanskrit texts copied over the last sixteen centuries. The life of Kumarajiva was unique in every aspect. His works inspired members of Imperial houses, Emperors, writers and artists, pilgrims and philosophers. His angelic presence can still be felt in the monastic establishments, in the sound of recitation of sutras and in the lives of the people that have been inspired over the centuries by his translations. The researches done by scholars from world academia are included in the present volume on his date of birth, the towns and villages where he spent his life from childhood to nirvana, historically important events of his life, his contemporaries, his contribution to the cultural sphere of East Asia especially defining a new road for Mahayana Buddhism, philosophical theories and vision, comparative studies of his translations and echoes of his translations in Chinese literature.Printed Pages: 361. 100548

Insurgent Sepoys: Europe views the Revolt of 1857
Routledge; London, UK; 2011; 0415597994; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The Revolt of 1857 in India has been seen primarily as an event that had repercussions in Britain and the Indian subcontinent. Little attention has been paid to its impact in other parts of the world. This path-breaking volume offers an insight into how the Revolt was viewed in non-English speaking Europe, where it was followed with keen interest. While liberals and conservatives defended or criticised British policies, emerging nationalist movements felt compelled to position themselves vis-¯-vis this tumultuous event in distant Asia. Arguing about whether it was a mere 'mutiny' or a nationalist 'revolt', whether it was justified or an execrable outburst of a barbaric people, they all saw the Revolt as a threat to Britain's future and dominance not only in India but also in Europe. The Revolt continued to engage the interest of European readers long after its suppression, appearing in various kinds of writings. This volume introduces this significant and till now neglected strand of Europe's encounter with India, including the extensive coverage of the Revolt in newspapers and journals in several European languages (French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Hungarian, Czech and Bulgarian), as well as its numerous fictional representations. About the Author Shaswati Mazumdar is Professor of German Studies at the Department of Germanic and Romance Studies, University of Delhi. Table of Contents 1. Introduction Part I: News and Views 2.

Traditional ways of developing ideas for the market are becoming less relevant. Today, the time-to-innovate ratio is compressed to respond quickly to a changing, fluid business environment. Increasingly, organizations recognize that a new foundation for problem-solving and innovation is required to respond rapidly to changes in their business. The solution: accessing a broad array of talent wherever it exists in and order in order to outperform the competition. This requires organizations to find a new infrastructure to organize their work using extended communities.Printed Pages: 240. 104597

Chandigarh Revealed: Le Corbusier's City Today
Mapin Publishing; New Delhi, India; 9789385360138; Hardcover; New; New; 
The unlikely story of Le Corbusier and Chandigarh has proven itself to be one of modernism’s boldest experiments. Born of a vision of a modern India, Chandigarh—designed by Le Corbusier—was created as a statement for an emerging modern nation–state. Its Capitol Complex, considered by many as Le Corbusier’s masterpiece, was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2016.Like all visionaries, Le Corbusier was adept at taking the iconic and symbolic and using them to fashion his own unique vocabulary. This volume explores the way in which his ideas created fertile grounds for architecture and urban planning.in Chandigarh, and in India, that encapsulated the visions of the post-war and post-colonial era.With insightful analyses of buildings across Chandigarh, the author illuminates the compositional poetry evident in Le Corbusier’s structures and the ways in which the patina of time has changed the city. A visceral journey through a remarkable modernist landscape using the photographic medium, Chandigarh Revealed pays homage to the works of a master with reflective observations of a living city.

Art as Medicine: Creating a Therapy of the Imagination
Shambhala Publications/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1992; 0877736588; Softcover; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
"Whenever illness is associated with loss of soul," writes Shaun McNiff, "the arts emerge spontaneously as remedies, soul medicine." The medicine of the artist, like that of the shaman, arises from his or her relationship to "familiars"—the themes, methods, and materials that interact with the artist through the creative process. Art as Medicine demonstrates how the imagination heals and renews itself through this natural process. The author describes his pioneering methods of art therapy—including interpretation through performance and storytelling, creative collaboration, and dialoguing with images—and the ways in which they can revitalize both psychotherapy and art itself.

The Tiger Claw: A Novel
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0143032895; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
When her father, the Sufi mystic and musician Hazrat Inayat Khan, dies, Noor is forced to bow to her uncle’s religious literalism and ideas of feminine propriety. Yet, while at the Sorbonne, she falls in love with Armand, a Jewish pianist and composer, and when her uncle forbids her to see him, continues their relationship in secret. As the Germans invade France in 1940, Armand persuades Noor to leave him for her own safety. Noor flees with her family to England, but volunteers to serve in a special intelligence agency. Trained as a radio operator for a group that, in Churchill’s words, will “set Europe ablaze” with acts of sabotage, she is sent back to Occupied France. Unwavering courage is what Noor requires for her assignment, and for her deeply personal mission—to unite with her beloved again. As her talisman, she carries her grandmother’s gift, an heirloom tiger claw encased in gold… In its portrayal of intolerance, The Tiger Claw eerily mirrors our own times, and progresses with moments of great beauty and tension towards a moving and unforgettable denouement.

Print and Power: Confucianism, Communism, and Buddhism in the Making of Modern Vietnam
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8121512166; First Indian Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
In this ambitious and path-breaking book, Shawn McHale challenges long held views that define modern Vietnamese history in terms of anticolonial nationalism and revolution. McHale argues instead for a historiography that does not overstress either the role of politics in general or Communism in particular. Using a wide range of sources from Vietnam, France, and the United States, many of them previously unexploited, he shows how the use of printed matter soared between 1920 and 1945 and in the process transformed Vietnamese public life and shaped the modern Vietnamese consciousness. Print and Power begins with an overview of Vietnam's lively public spheres, bringing debates from Europe and the rest of Asia to Vietnamese studies with nuance and sophistication. It examines the impact of the French colonial state on Vietnamese society as well as Vietnamese and East Asian understandings of public discourse and public space. Popular taste, rather than revolutionary or national ideology, determined to a large extent what was published, with limited intervention by the French authorities. A vibrant but hierarchical public realm of debate existed in Vietnam under authoritarian colonial rule. The work goes on to contest the impact of Confucianism on premodern and modern Vietnam and, based on materials never before used, provides a radically new perspective on the rise of Vietnamese communism from 1929 to 1945. Novel interpretations of the Nghe Tinh soviets (1930-1931), the first major communist uprising in Vietnam, and Vietnamese communist successes in World War II built an audience for their views and made an extremely alien ideology comprehensible to growing numbers of Vietnamese. In what is by far the most thorough examination in English of modern Vietnamese Buddhism and its transformations, McHale argues that, contrary to received wisdom, Buddhism was not in decline during the 1920-1945 period; in fact, more Buddhist texts were produced in Vietnam at that time than at any other in its history. This finding suggests that the heritage of the Vietnamese past played a crucial role in the late colonial period. Print and Power makes a significant contribution to Vietnamese and Asian studies and will be of compelling interest to those in the fields of comparative religion and European colonialism.

Snow Lion Publications; Ithaca, New York, USA; 2013; 1559393971; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Vajra Wisdom presents the commentaries of two great nineteenth-century Nyingma masters that guide practitioners engaged in development stage practice through a series of straightforward instructions. The rarity of this kind of material in English makes it indispensable for practitioners and scholars alike. The goal of development stage meditation in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition is to directly realize the inseparability of phenomena and emptiness. Preceded by initiation and oral instructions, the practitioner arrives at this view through the profound methods of deity visualization, mantra recitation, and meditative absorption.

Eons ago, the Gods faced off a rebel among their number. The god Bala threatened the very existence of the universe, and the gods themselves could do nothing to stop him.

In the present age, Bala stands a chance to regain his lost power. And the only one who can stop him is an unsuspecting young woman named Tara Mehta whose fate may yet see her drawn to the forefront as the eternal emissary of death to all who threaten the fabric of the universe: Devi. 109603

The Sansis of Punjab: A Gypsy and Denotified Tribe of Rajput Origin
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1965; 8121504198; First Edition; Hardcover; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The Sansis of Punjab-whose gift the famous Ranjit Singh was to Indian History-are one of the most important tribes of North India, mistakenly branded as 'aborigines' by ill-informed anthropologists in the past and classed under "Criminal Tribes" by the British administrators during their regime. A proper anthropological study of their life was till now a desideratum. For the first time now, this book which is the result of deep concern and painstaking research of its author, gives an authentic and exhaustive account of this sadly neglected ethnic group. The Sansis being one of the Indo-Aryan people who settled in Punjab, this book describes as a whole, the social customs, manners, beliefs and practices of the peoples of the land of the five rivers. The author proves in it that the Sansis are no aborigines but of Rajput origin, dispossessed of their homeland by Muslim invasion in the 13th century and scattered over in the Punjab. It contains original chapters on their dialect, demography, their relations with the gypsies, found outside India and other Indo-Aryans peoples, and their socio-economic and cultural life including the present and future of their socio-economic and political life.

High Religion: A Cultural and Political History of Sherpa Buddhism
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8120809491; Second Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
An eminent anthropologist examines the foundings of the first celibate Buddhist monasteries among the Sherpas of Nepal in the early twentieth century--a religious development that was a major departure from "folk" or "popular" Buddhism. Sherry Ortner is the first to integrate social scientific and historical modes of analysis in a study of the Sherpa monasteries and one of the very few to attempt such an account for Buddhist monasteries anywhere. Combining ethnographic and oral historical methods, she scrutinizes the interplay of political and cultural factors in the events culminating in the foundings. Her work constitutes a major advance both in our knowledge of Sherpa Buddhism and in the integration of anthropological and historical modes of analysis. At the theoretical level, the book contributes to an emerging theory of "practice", an explanation of the relationship between human intentions and actions on the one hand, and the structures of society and culture that emerge from and feed back upon those intentions and actions on the other. It will appeal not only to the increasing number of anthropologists working on similar problems but also to historians anxious to discover what anthropology has to offer to historical analysis. In addition, it will be essential reading for those interested in Nepal, Tibet, the Sherpa, or Buddhism in general.Printed Pages: 259. 102367
