Rude Food: The Collected Food Writings of Vir Sanghvi
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0143031392; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
Star journalist and popular television anchor Vir Sanghvi wears many hats. By day he writes serious political columns, in the evenings he's at a studio interviewing a celebrity, and sometime in between he is both gourmet and gourmand. And when Sanghvi writes on food, he pulls no punches. Celebrating what is good and savagely attacking what is bad, he combines culinary history, travel and culture to rank among the best food writers of today. Inspired, erudite and wonderfully witty, Rude Food is a collection of Sanghvi's essays on food and drink. From breakfast rituals to sinful desserts, airlines khana to what our favourite film stars love to eat, from chefs at five-star hotels to food critics, Vir Sanghvi has his finger on the pulse of what we put into our stomachs and why. If you want to know how tandoori chicken arrived in India, the Three Golden Rules of sandwich making or the three kinds of bad service you should absolutely not put up with, who eats out the most in Bombay and where you are most likely to find Prime Minister Vajpayee tucking into his favourite cuisine, then this is the book you must have. Full of culinary secrets and gastronomic tips, Rude Food tells you the key to the perfect pizza, the easiest way to make risotto, what the nation's fast food of choice is, the truth about your cooking oil, and much much more. A feast of sparkling prose that entertains as it informs, this is a book to be read, consulted and savoured. Printed Pages: 368. 003041

Pilgrimage and Faith: Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam
Serindia Publications; Chicago, USA; 2010; 1932476474; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 26 x 26 Cm 
Pilgrimage and Faith: Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam explores pilgrimage as experienced in Buddhist, Christian, and Muslim faith communities. It addresses shared goals of personal development and communal solidarity as deep human needs. Unique in scope, this richly illustrated catalogue addresses religious diversity in a global perspective. Dating from the 12th century to the present day, ninety-five historical objects and mementos of present-day pilgrimages are beautifully presented in their context with a collection of essays by leading international scholars. Fine examples include sculptures in wood and limestone from France and copper and bronze from Tibet, a pilgrimage itinerary book from Japan, stained glass from the Middle Ages, a Renaissance enameled chalice from Italy, a lavish embellished Quran from Iran, and Islamic prayer scrolls in silver amulet casings. By studying objects of supreme artistic skill along with mass-produced objects and personal acquisitions such as stones or soil from the holy place, the scholars shed new light on the continuity of pilgrimage and faith – the past and the present and the motivations and experiences of persons of all social strata. The exhibition starts at the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Art Gallery, College of the Holy Cross, Worcester MA, then travels to the Loyola University Museum of Art, Chicago, the University of Richmond Art Museums, Richmond, VA, and finally the Rubin Museum of Art, New York City. This accompanying catalogue offers unique contributions that combine both general and specialist appeal – an important addition to any private and public library.

The Early Modern Ottomans: Remapping the Empire
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0521520851; First Edition; Paperback; New; 150 x 230 Mm 
A groundbreaking reinterpretation of the middle years of the Ottoman Empire, from the conquest of Byzantium in 1453 to the establishment of the Tanzimat in 1839. This period saw the evolution of the Empire from the height of its powers to - as the traditional view has it - an empire in decline, unable to modernise in the face of globalisation and European ascendancy. The contributors challenge this view, demonstrating how the Ottomans came to be modern on their own terms. They explore the Ottomans as politicians and diplomats, military reformers, artists and historians. They also map out and redefine the material worlds which they inhabited - the courthouse, the cemetery, the Turkish garden. This book, which represents a turning-point in the intellectual history of the Ottoman Empire, promises to become a key text for students, scholars and anyone interested in the Ottoman world. • Major contribution to the field of early modern Ottoman history, challenging the traditional view of the period • Designed for classroom use, with specific topics studied such as mapping, concepts of loyalty and disloyalty, imagined and real justice, diplomacy • Wide chronological and geographical coverage Contents Situating the early modern Ottoman world Virginia Aksan and Daniel Goffman; Part I.

Manage Your Problems: The Gopal Bhand Way
V & S Publishers; New Delhi, India; 9789381588550; Softcover; New; 
Gopal Bhand, the barber, was the chief jester at the Rajbari (Royal Court) of Raja Krishna Chandra Rai, the famous Emperor of Krishnanagar (Nadia), West Bengal during the 18th century. Gopal was a genius and is included in the genre of Birbal and Tenali Raman. Countless stories of his exploits where he outwits other fellow courtiers and men are narrated in Bengal and Bangladesh even to this day. Gopal as a court jester was able to influence the King in many matters. He always had wit at his disposal, whether in the form of puns, riddles, doggerel verse, antics or babble which he used to soften the blow of a critical comment or edgy moment in a way that prevented a dignified personage from losing face. A hilarious bouquet of Gopal`s timeless anecdotes are presented in this book which really are eye openers ? imparting new thoughts, new dreams, new solutions, new ideas, new wordplay, newer takes on humour, parodies, satire and a window to a whole new world of imagination and basic wisdom. The stories of the book are short with a heady mix of wit, comedy, funny description and wonderful characterisations dusted with Gopal`s inimitable sprinklings of humor which provoke one to think beyond the seemingly simple things. The book offers tales of wise men and their battles of wit during the medieval royal Bengal; stories of knotty problems with ingenious solutions and mind fertilizing anecdotes which not only inform, advise, enthuse, inspire and amuse but impart specific and terse wise lessons appropriate to the issues at point to `Manage the Problems` neatly. The author has taken great care to narrate the anecdotes in the most descriptive manner focusing on wise lessons at the end of each account laced with equally fascinating illustrations. The presentation of the book is unique as it can be read from any chapter, but still it will stimulate the reader ? like a pealed banana, which can be eaten from any side, thus enjoying its sweetness. It`s a fascinating assortment of entertaining anecdotal short stories guaranteed to hold the reader till the last page. Printed Pages: 264. 108717

Dragon in the Air: Transformation of Aviation Industry and the Air Force
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904268; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Dragon in the Air: Transformation of China’s Aviation Industry and Air Force is a comprehensive and multidimensional study of the air force and the emerging aviation industry in PRC. The author has made a bold effort to trace the changing character of Chinese Air Force from the time of nationalists and perspicuously hunted down the history by dividing PLAAF into three distinct periods. The first stage from 1949-1979 has been characterized by the early blues of PLAAF under Mao’s leadership. Deng then had an overbearing influence in the second stage from 1979-1993, also instrumental in initiating the process of transformation from an ancillary of PLA into an independent arm. The third stage was however the defining moment which witnessed the start of modernization of PLAAF under the leadership of Jiang Zemin. The author has very lucidly tried to explain the strong link between modernisation of PLAAF and the emergence of China’s aviation industry and therefore divided the book in two parts. While the first part of the book maintains focus on the air force and the process of modernisation; the second part dwells with the evolution of the aviation industry and the changes in the organisation structure. He has pointedly highlighted China’s increasing defence spending and growing military capabilities resulting in China developing new aerial platforms, ballistic missiles and modern firepower. As a result China is enhancing strategic power projection by building capabilities to carry out air strikes, reconnaissance and early warning and air and missile defence to put together a potent military force by the middle of this century.Printed Pages: 266. 104314

Governance of Water: Institutional Alternatives and Political Economy
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0761936076; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
An oft-quoted, modern adage is that the next major global conflict will be over water. In many areas of the world the present is already marked by an uneasy competition among different water users and use sectors, often leading to conflicts. India particularly stands on the brink of an uncertain future, its ever-growing population putting pressure on its increasingly meagre water resources. Governance of Water: Institutional Alternatives and Political Economy is a timely, relevant book that makes a case for reforming water governance in India through not only re-orientating policy priorities and approaches, but also restructuring the institutional framework away from the state and village dichotomy. The book has eminent scholars explore the issue from various angles—neo-classical and institutional economics, deliberative democracy, public administration, collective action and political economy perspectives. Divided into four sections, the 17 thought-provoking chapters in this volume contend that the challenges facing water governance in India cannot be addressed in the current policy framework. The book argues that a possible link between the larger structure of the economy and the transaction costs in water governance, as well as relations with the democratic polity as it actually functions, need to be understood clearly; the research on the transformation of water governance requires in-depth analysis to make the process more transparent, participatory and accountable to the larger society. The book makes a strong case and will contribute immensely to the study and discussion of water governance in India. It will interest environmental and agricultural economists, ecologists, policy-makers and planners and those in the development sector, as well as the media and the general reader.

Durgasaptashati Evam Saundaryalahiri ka Tulnatmak Anusheelan
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8124605793; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Since the inception of Creation, woman has always been adored as a symbol of strength (Shakti) and beauty (Saundarya). In reality, the importance of woman begins in the foremost ancient text of the Rigveda in its Vak Sukta. Upanishads also mention "Usha Devi" as eternally young woman. This trend continues in Puranas too. History of ancient India has been described in Puranas, and sanskriti (culture) shown therein is the sanskriti of a comman man. Markandeya Purana, one of the eighteen Mahapuranas, consists a collection of thirteen chapters in 700 shlokas named Durgasaptashati, depicting that form of Goddess Bhagavati, the Universal Mother, which explores woman's dignity with its constructive power. In the same tone, Saundaryalahari mentions about Bhagavati who is simply Kundalini, and her depiction as aesthetically beautiful woman is manifested by Shankaracharya. This scripture reveals that the worshipping power inspires us for continuous creation, and discusses about philosophical (Tantric), cultural and literary "trinity." In this deliberation antiquity manifests itself into modernity and ultimately into science. When meaningfulness of "word-Brahman" takes divine form, then it becomes humanity and there itself we realize the concept of Shiva-Shakti. The light of Brahman exists in this world. This exact realisation of Brahma is the subject-matter of this book. The sources of Indian culture are found in Darshan and Tantra. This expounds the expression of Tantra philosophy in the comparative appreciation of Durgasaptashati and Saundaryalahari. This book appreciates poetry, culture and literature and at the same time, there is also beautiful assimilation of aesthetic sense, Tattva-Darshan and literature.Printed Pages: 288. 100483

The Sun Never Sets: South Asian Migrants in an Age U.S. Power
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8125052364; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Sun Never Sets presents the work of a generation of scholars who are shifting the orientation of South Asian American studies. In its early years, the field centered on literary and cultural analyses and focused predominantly on the immigrant professionals who arrived in the United States after changes to immigration laws in the 1960s. Here, the contributors focus on the political economy and long history of South Asian migrations to the U.S.—and upon the lives, work, and activism of often unacknowledged migrant populations—in ways that not only challenge preconceptions about the South Asian presence in the United States, but illuminate continuities between British Imperialism and U.S.-led globalization. These essays track changes in global power that have influenced the paths and experiences of migrants—from the Indian farmers, seamen and radicals who sought work and refuge in the U.S. in the 1910s to Indian nurses sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation during the Cold War to the post-9/11 detainees and deportees caught in the crossfire of the “War on Terror”.Printed Pages: 408. 101768

Dalit Leadership in India
Kalpaz Publications/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8178350874; Hardcover; New; New; 
Conceptualisation of Dalit Leadership in Indian Democratic Policies is a difficult preposition. The book is a modest attempt to understand the same and many other related issues with the Dalit leadership in India. The facts and figures about the origin, growth and development of Dalit Leadership in Indian Society are missing from the main stream academia though the Dalit Leadership has a long History of struggle. An examination about the Nature and dynamics, strategy or strategies adopted for mobilisation and Empowerment of the Dalit masses, is also not found in different streams of discipline taught at the universities and colleges. Therefore, it is imperative to explore the aforesaid unexplored facts, issues, mysteries etc. about the Dalit Leadership at this crucial juncture when Dalit Assertion has become a socio-political reality. The present book successfully answers most of these queries regarding the Dalit Leadership in a very lucid manner.Printed Pages: 290. 106047

Secular Thoughts of the Sikh Gurus
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1988; 8121202310; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Sikh Gurus sang the glory of a universal God and brotherhood among men. They recurred to the theme in an idiom appropriate to the times and climates they lived in. The lyrical Sikh hymns and songs stimulate the faithful to grow big in spirit, tolerance and fraternity. The Sikh faith did not build walls around itself, but became open and outreaching. The secular foundation of Sikh religion has been acknowledged by many non-Sikh saints, savants and poets. But a thoughtfully studied exposition was due till Dr. Vivek Ranjan Bhattacharya took up the task out of his deep conviction. He presents a warm appreciation of the secular thoughts of the ten Gurus who transmitted divine light to humanity. The sublime thoughts also hard-working men and women, free from the constraints of caste, social injustice, superstition and parochialism. Guru Nanak and the Gurus following him added a new dimension to the heritage of India?s secular thought. Teachings ot as may as nineteen non-Sikh saints form an integral part of the holy Guru Granth. The Vedas, the gods, the goddesses and the prophets of Hinduism occur frequently in the discourse and writings of the learned Gurus. Which other organized religion has a base so generous in spirit and so tolerant to other religions? This book uncovers the underlying message of universal love, amity, tolerance and social justice inherent in Sikh faith. Authenticated by quotations from oral and written works of the Gurus, the work is a testament of faith in secularism with in the framework of a great world religion. The way the world is going the secular thought of Sikh Gurus needs wide broadcasting. There is hardly any other choice for survival.Printed Pages: 153. 105701
