Pahari Paintings: The Horst Metzger Collection in the Museum Rietberg
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789385285721; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Horst Metzger was a dedicated German scientist and avid collector with a deep and abiding passion for Indian art. Pahari paintings, with their delicate colours and intricate detailing, were his particular favourites. When Dr Metzger passed away, he left his collection of close to 250 paintings, as a bequest, to the Museum Rietberg in Zurich. It was his conviction that his paintings would find their ideal home in its welcoming environs.Pahari paintings features 60 chosen works from Horst Metzger's collection at the Museum Rietberg, which depict the allure of these Rajput paintings from the hill states of India. Redolent of the enchanting beauty and many-splendoured nature of this art form, the present work showcases the delicate aesthetics of Pahari painting, as well as the collector's labour of love in putting together this rare and priceless collection.

Indian Art: Forms, Concerns and Development in Historical Perspective (History of Science, Philosophy and Culture in Indian Civilization: Vol. VI, Part 3)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8121509041; Reprint; Hard Cover; New; New; 23 Cms x 29 Cms 
Volume VI Part 3: History of Science, Philosophy and Culture in Indian Civilization. The volumes of the PROJECT ON THE HISTORY OF SCIENCE, PHILOSOPHY AND CULTURE IN INDIAN CIVILIZATION aim at discovering the main aspects of India's heritage and present them in an interrelated way. These volumes, in spite of their unitary look, recognise the difference between the areas of material civilization and those of ideational culture. The Project is not being executed by a single group of thinkers and writers whore are methodologically uniform or ideologically identical in their commitments. In fact contributions are made by different scholars with different ideological persuasions and methodological approaches. The Project is marked by what may be called 'methodological pluralism'. In spite of its primary historical character, this Project, both in its conceptualization and execution, has been shaped by many scholars drawn from different disciplines. It is for the first time that an endeavour of such a unique and comprehensive character has been undertaken to study critically a major world civilization like India. This volume offers essays by some of the most eminent art historians of India. The subjects range from Gandhara to Kerela, classical to folk arts and ancient times to the place of traditional arts in the world of today. Each essay is an authoritative work by an expert in the field. Although they cover a wide range, the contributions share an interest in the artist, and the social and philosophical context of his work. The proceedings of the seminar, distinguished by lively discussions, have been transcribed and included here. The exchanges between scholars, as recorded here, and the essays presented, contain fresh insights and much new material. There are assessments here of work done, and pointers towards the direction in which the volume of art history in India might lie. The volume with its fifteen papers and index is a source book of great value to interested scholars of fine arts and general readers alike.

3513 B.N. Goswamy; Foreword By Karan Singh
Nala and Damayanti: A Great Series of Paintings of an Old Indian Romance
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789383098897; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 293 x 230 Mm 
Three things come magically together in this remarkable series of paintings - a great text, a delectable old romance and the work of one of the most talented families of painters known to Indian art. The text is the 12th century Naishadhacharita of Sriharsha, one of the last great kavyas of Sanskrit literature. The story, told with the utmost delicacy, centers around the intense love that grew mutual sights heard of, but yet unseen between King Nala and Princess Damayanti and the painter family that produced this exquisitely painted series came from the small principality of Guler in the Pahari hills - todays Himachal Pradesh. The intent of the painter/s was to cover the story in close to 110 paintings, but for reasons unknown, the work was interrupted - only 47 paintings could be completed all of them now in the collection of the Amar Mahal Museum and Library at Jammu and here published the remaining having survived only in the form of highly finished drawings. But none of this interferes in the slightest with the magic that the paintings weave. Printed Pages: 264 with 279 colour illustrations. 038117

Pandit Revisited
Chaukhamba Publications; New Delhi, India; 1991; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Pandit also called Kasi-Vidya-Sudha-Nidhi, was a monthly journal of The Benares College (presently the Sampurnanand Sanskrit University, Varanasi) devoted to Sanskrit literature. This pioneering journal in the field of Sanskrit appeared from 1866 till 1917. After being published regularly for almost fifty years, it was withdrawn owing cheifly to the lack of support in 1917. The journal mainly aimed at publishing unpublished Sanskrit texts, but it also contained gleaning from reports, research articles, book-reviews etc., both in English and Sanskrit. Sampurnanand Sanskrit University has taken up the much awaited task of bringing out reprints of such selected materials from the file of The Pandit which are Not Available outside its pages. The first part of the Pandit Revisited contains a selection of articles in English originally appeared in The Pandit, old series, volume I-X (1866-1876). Some of the important articles are : (i) Ballantyne : On the Nyaya System of Philosophy; The Pandits and Their Manner of Teaching, On the Ontology of the Vedanta, (ii) Fitz-Edward Hall : Benares, Ancient and Medieval, (iii) A E. Cough : Widow-Marriage; Ancient Indian History, (iv) Sivaprasad : The Benares Pillar Inscription; Prophecy in Favour of the British Government etc. The Volume projects a plain picture of Indological studies in the later half of the 19th century. These are also significant sources of academic research in Indology.Printed Pages:247. 100601

Specific Principles of Kashmir Saivism
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8121507294; Third Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Specific Principles of Kashmir Saivism throws a clear light on the aspects of Trika Saiva philosophy that remain either untouched or not well-clarified in other schools. Starting with a discussion of the theistic absolutism of the Trika system, B.N. Pandit guides us through Abhinavagupta's critique of the primary cosmogonic theories of his time-the materialist realism of Samkhya, the momentary-idealism of Vijnanavada, and the vivarta theory of Advaita Vedanta-en route to establishing the Kashmir Saiva theory of theistic reflectional manifestation as a unique and supremely logical cosmogonic system. Like the topic of cosmogony, several other important principles are unique developments of the Trika system. These topics include: Spanda, Saktipata, the classification of beings, aesthetics, the notion of Sabdabrahman, the relation of the five pranas to the four states of consciousness, and Trika yoga. This book illuminates these topics on the basis of the writings of the primary masters of the school, including Vasugupta, Kallata Bhatta, Somananda, Utpaladeva, and Abhinavagupta. In addition, the author has included a chapter on the vilasa principle as expounded in the Neo-Saiva philosophy (Abhinava-Saivadarsana) of Acarya Amrtavagbhava. This work also includes an index, extensive glossary, and appendix of Sanskrit quotations, making it an invaluable source-book for beginners and scholars alike. Printed Pages: 224. 033146

3530 B.N. Parimoo
The Ascent of Self: A Reinterpretation of the Mystical Poetry of Lalla-ded
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8120803051; Third Reprint; Softcover; New; 
The book deals with the spiritual evolution of a mystic saint-poetess of Kashmir of the 14th century. The work is based on the verses of the poetess collected from old manuscripts and other sources. The verses have been rearranged, translated and commented upon and the thesis made out that Lalla-Ded, as the poetess is called, attained yogic perfection. The verses have not only been rendered into English but also critically analysed and examined. The commentary on each quatrain has been supported extensively by quotations and texts from the Indian scriptures such as the Bhagavad Gita, the Upanisads, the Brahma Sutras, the Saiva-Tantras of Kashmir, etc., besides references to sacred books and philosophies of the West. In a way it may be considered as a treatise on practical yoga-the 'ascent' of the individual self through subtle planes of the absolute being. The teaching of Lalla-Ded has a great bearing and significance today, as ever. The spiritual salvation helps rise above the narrow considera tions of selfishness, greed and, more than anything else, above religious bigotry. Those who doubt the efficacy of Yoga and Tantra should really read this book for its sound philosophizing and as a fresh account of the so-called esoteric practices, meant for transformation of means of perception. The book is relevant to the present times when there is over-all demand for reviewing traditional oriental practices meant for enriching our present cultural life which is overshadowed by mechanistic ideology - Sambodhi, vol.8, December 1980. Prof. B.N. Parimoo has made a laudable attempt...to trace the spiritual evolution of Lal Ded, the path of the ascent of her self, in the Vakhs by rearranging them in a sequential order. Not only this, but has also tried through painstaking scholarship to do a careful sifting of the Vakhs which have been mixed up with the shrukhs of Nunda Rishi. - Prabuddha Bharat, September 1982. Professor Parimoo's scholarly study of Lalla Vakhs has a distinctiveness about it that makes it invaluable to a student of spirituality in general and to the student of Kashmir Saivism in particular. In his own words, he has attempted a reconstruction of the verse sayings of this great saint-poetess to indicate the stages of her ASCENT to the highest pinnacle of spiritual evolution. - Kashmir Herald, Vol.III, 26 April 1981.Printed Pages: 249. 102166

Kusanas in India and Central Asia
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8121511542; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The present study covers the political and cultural history of India and Central Asia between the first and fifth centuries AD. The earlier work entitled India under the Kusanas (1965) was, of course, a specialized study, but restricted in time and space. During the last thirty years, additional information has been made available and several conferences and seminars relating to the Kusanas have been organized. The UNESCO project, History of Civilizations of Central Asia, has highlighted the importance of Kusana studies. This comprehensive study relating to the history and culture of India and Central Asia in the Kusana period is objective in approach, clear in perspective, and critical in treatment. It is expected to cater to the interests of both the specialist and the generalist. Printed Pages: 408. 037917

History of Indian Administration: Volume III: Modern Period
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1982; 8121501636; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
During the reign of Aurangzeb, Bihar had the status of an independent administrative unit of the Mughal Empire. The Bihar governors then were in no way subordinate to the governors of Bengal. After Fakhr-ud-Dowla, its last independent governor, Bihar was, however, annexed to the Bengal Suba and it remained as an appanage of Bengal thereafter for about 200 years (1733 to 1912). The battle of Giria in 1740 made Alivardi the undisputed ruler of Bengal and Bihar, and was succeeded by Siraj-ud-Dowla in 1765. The period between 1757 and 1765 was marked by the growth of the British influence in Bengal and Bihar also was thereby exposed to the same influence. The leading officers and Zamindars of Bihar were, however, not prepared to accept the new challenge: they opposed to the English dominance over Bihar and fought single-handedly against the English before allowing Bihar to go the Bengal way. After the receipt of Clive, of the Diwani Grant over Bengal, Bihar and Orissa on August 12, 1765 from Shah Alam II, the unfortunate and shadowy Emperor of Delhi, the East India Company got a definite legal status in the system of the Mughal Empire and another phase of Bihari resistance began. During the period when Raja Shitab Roy was the Naib Nizam of Bihar the Zamindars of Seres and Cotomba and Maharajah Fatah Sahi of Husainpur, fought against the company's troops but they lost against heavy odds. The author has described these various Bihari resistances and also the company's exploits in Bihar prior to their acceptance of direct responsibility for the administration of the province in 1772 after the infamous Bengal famine of 1770.

Western Political Thought
Kaveri Book Service; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8174791442; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This book is an energetic, engaged and lucid account of the most important political and social thinkers and the enduring themes of the last two and a half millennia. The book traces the development of political thought from Plato to Marx. It focuses on individual thinkers and texts and offers original views of theorists and by highlighting those which may have been unjustly neglected. It develops the wider themes of political thought and relations between thinkers over time. Each chapter is intended to present a coherent political theory derived from the works of a classical political thinker. All chapters share a common organizational structure, a feature that should facilitate comparison, accentuating the distinctive implications of accepting one of these alternative ways of looking at political reality for understanding and evaluating political possibilities. Although each of the subsequent chapter can stand by itself, none should be considered a substitute for reading the original work of a great political thinker. The book presents a fascinating history of Western political thought in a witty, confident and sometimes extremely poetic style. It will inform, challenge, provoke and entertain in what people have had to say about politics in the last two and half thousand years.Printed Pages: 663. 104164

Manual Scavenging in India: A Disgrace to the Country
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1997; 8170226392; Hardcover; New; New; 
India is the only country in the world where a particular section of the society is traditionally responsible for keeping the habitation clean by removing the waste products of the society including the human excreta. This is a disgrace to the country, Instances are not rare even today when one can see people carrying night-soil in buckets on their heads or removing human excreta by physical touch. Who are these people? Why they are compelled to do such type of inhuman and dirty work and how long these neglected sections of society will remain under such bondage? Is there any solution to liberate them before we enter the 21st century? These are some of the complex questions which are agitating the minds of the well-meaning people in the country. The country which won freedom from the slavery of the British people 49 years ago is not able to liberate from human bondage more than one million people who are called Bhangis, Mehtars, Balmikis, etc., and are still engaged in their traditional occupation of sweeping and scavenging. Is it not a shame on us when we force a person to clean excreta of others. The author based on his 35 years of experience about the various regions of the country and its people, has tried to answer these questions in this book. An attempt has been made to trace out the origin of scavengers in India, their social and economic status, caste organisations, cultural heritage and territorial distribution. An evaluative study of then initiatives taken by the Central and State Governments, prominent non government organisations like Harijan Sewak Sangh, Sulabh International Social Service Organisation etc., and the progress made so far for the liberation and rehabilitation of scavengers, have been made. The book is a holistic approach to the problem of manual scavenging in India. Printed Pages: 178. 112536

The Brahmasutras and Their Principal Commentaries: A Critical Exposition, 3 vols.
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2017; 812150032X; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Brahmasutras and Their Principal Commentaries is a vigorous, animated and thought-provoking treatise on the interpretation of the Vedantasutras of Badarayana. Dr Sharma has delved deeply into the three principal traditions of their interpretation established by acaryas: Sankara, Ramanuja, and Madhva. This is the first work on the Sutras to give parity of treatment to all the three principal traditions of interpretation by placing them in their own melieu and bringing them into close thematic relation with one another, allowing full scope for each one to speak in its authentic voice. The exegetical, the expository and the analytic aspects of the interpretations have been given the fullest attention in a coordinated form, for the first time. Besides the bhasyas of the acaryas, we are here treated to a sumptuous feast of the niceties and nuances of their exposition and reinforcement by their distinguished subcommentators like Vacaspati Misra, Amalananda, Sudarsana Suri, Jayatirtha, Vyasatirtha, Vadiraja, Raghuttama, Raghunatha, Raghavendra Svamin, and others whose works are not available to us in English translations. The disquisitions from these unexplored classics of the Vedanta system are sure to regale the tarkarasikas among students of philosophy in the East, in the West, and in the Far East. It is only such a thoroughgoing study of the Sutras and their classical commentaries that can help us in our voyage of discovery to where the Sutras of Badarayana intend to lead us.

The Buddha and his Dhamma: A Critical Edition
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2011; 0198068670; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Buddha and His Dhamma was B.R. Ambedkar’s last work. Published posthumously, it presented a radical reorientation of Buddhist thought and literature, aptly called navayana. . It deals with Ambedkar’s conceptualization of Buddhism and the possibilities it offered for liberation and upliftment of the Dalits. It presents his reflections on the life of the Buddha, his teachings, and the spread of Buddhism by interweaving anecdotes with detailed analyses of the religion’s basic tenets. The author also includes important elements of the Buddhist canon and tradition to make the teachings more accessible. In the first critical and annotated edition of this work, the editors address the on-going debate on Ambedkar’s interpretation of the Buddha’s dhamma by focusing on the accuracy of his citations and providing missing sources. They also discuss Ambedkar’s modification of source materials. The introduction contextualizes the scholarly work related to the text. Printed Pages: 356. 110232

India China Relations: Future Perspectives
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789381411155; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
India and China had a glorious history of cultural and material exchanges, which developed into friendship and subsequently into camaraderie during first half of the twentieth century when both India and China fought western imperialism. Owing to serious misconceptions and misjudgements the relations remained under the shadow of animosities and mutual distrust for over three decades until Rajiv Gandhi's China visit in 1988. After 62 years of diplomatic relations between the two, there is a certain maturity in the relations, as both are sharing new responsibilities in the stupendously changing global architecture. India-China Relations: Future Perspectives is a collection of eighteen essays by eminent Indian and Chinese scholars, diplomats and political personalities, who look at the complex and multi-layered relationship from different perspectives covering various domains such as civilizational dialogue through history, the 1950s brotherhood, the border, and various other issues pertaining to education, agriculture, security, defense and economic complementarities etc. The complex and multi-layered character of the relationship makes it difficult to define as an adversarial or competitive, for there has been cooperation at various levels between the two, such as climate change and many other multilateral forums like G20 and BRICS. Notwithstanding the cooperation, there have been incremental yet cautious approaches towards cooperation in various fields from both the sides. As the global economic and political scenario is undergoing a tremendous change, and its shift to Asia is visible, the contributors feel that India and China need to handle the hypersensitive issues with care and tap the existing complementarities appropriately, or else the Asian century would not only be a distant dream, but could also endanger the peace and stability of the region and the world.Printed Pages: 302. 103194

The Ancillary Literature of the Atharvaveda: A Study with Special Reference to The Parisistas
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1993; 8121506077; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
The present work seeks to focus attention on the richness and variety of the Atharvanic literature. It undertakes to give at one place a comprehensive and connected account of the profuse ancillary literature belonging to the Atharva-Veda. This book also aims at bringing to the foreground the vast and important but mostly neglected literature in the Vedic field, namely, the Atharva-Veda Parisistas. The Atharvaveda Parisistas deal with a number of subjects like the lore of constellations, royal ceremonies, rituals, religious observances, magic, philology, omens and portents, etc. The present study is divided into two parts. The first part describes in brief the nature and contents of the Atharva-Veda Samhita and then takes up the ancillary texts, other than the Parisistas. The second part deals exclusively and exhaustively with the Atharva-Veda Parisistas. All the Parisistas have been studied in detail and their contents have been critically and systematically restated. Some general questions such as those relating to the date, the style, etc. of the Parisistas have also been discussed. The study concludes with an index of the Atharva-Veda mantras referred to in the Gopatha Brahmana, the Kausika Sutra, the Vaitana Sutra, the Parisistas and other Vedic texts.

The 29 essays cover a vast territory: Gandhi s formative years his struggle against racism in South Africa and imperialism in India his attitude to religion and the partition of India his public life and his relations with colleagues, disciples, and opponents and the continuing relevance of his political and economic thought for India and the world, even in the twenty-first century. In Search of Gandhi presents in compact and lucid form, the major events and personalities of Gandhi s long public life. This comprehensive and scrupulously researched selection wil l be of immense interest to scholars of Gandhian studies and the history of the Indian freedom movement. It has much to offer those who want to know more about the man whose ideas and methods are recognized as being increasingly relevant in a world racked by ethnic conflict, religious fundamentalism and international terrorism.

The Balti: A Scheduled Tribe of Jammu and Kashmir
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1993; 812120402X; Hardcover; New; New; 
Traditionally, the Baltis are believed to be descendants of Celtic Communities settled in Scandinavia. When the Water Level in the Baltic Sea rose and inundated their arable lands, they were forced to flee the area. Even after the flood subsided, the land appeared to be unusable for agriculture, having been heavily saturated with mineral salts. Migration started in many directions. The Baltis of Ladakh are related to many other communities in Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine.The highlands at the approaches of the Korakaram pass, inhabited by former Buddhists converted to Shi-ite Islam by Mir Shamsuddin Iraqi around the turn of the 16th century, are currently receiving great attention from the News media. The present-day dispute over Kashmir may be an indication that Asia is going back to its land-based trade activities that were terminated in the 16th century.Dr. Baqar Raza Rizvi's careful documentation of the Baltis in Kargil is likely to lay the foundations of a series of scholarly Research on this community. The work is to be commended for its comprehensive data and insight in concept.Printed Pages: 156. 105774
