D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8124604606; First Edition; Softcover; New; 15 x 22 Cm 
It is often taken for granted that Independence from the British rule also ushered an era of cultural and social freedom in India. The author wishes to examine if that is true or if a cultural decline set in soon after. Based on a verse in the Pancatantra, the book has been divided into six parts: Eka (person), Kula (family), Grama (habitat), Janapada (land), Prithvi (earth) and Atma. Issues of education; conflicts between the classes, regions, jatis, languages and religions; expansion of proselytizers; lack of governance; tensions between the legislators and judiciary; rise of unbridled consumerism; falling standards of democracy; dilemmas created by notions of dharma challenged by Westernized modernity; and the problems of attaining universal harmony, are all put into a perspective under these six categories. While examining the state of affairs the author also suggests a way for the pursuit of happiness through unselfish transcendence.Printed Pages: 254. 100389

3810 Bharat Jhunjhunwala (Ed.)
Governance and Human Rights
Kalpaz Publications/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8178351242; Hardcover; New; New; 
The papers presented in this book explain the Indian approach to Governance and Human Rights. Little literature is presently available which can explain the system of governance which enabled the Indian civilisation to survive for 5,000 years. This book makes a path-breaking contribution in the direction. It shows that there were many methods of checking the excesses of the government. One among such Measures was people's resistance which has been formally established in the form of Adult franchise or democracy. It is shown that this is but one small subset of the total system of governance of the Indian civilisation. A plea is made to understand and incorporate of governance into the modern Democratic structure.The Movement for the protection of human rights has come to the fore after the perpetration of great atrocities upon the Jews by the Nazis during the Second World War. But such violations would have occurred throughout history. The second part of the book deals with the Indian approach to human rights. It is shown that performance of duties by one secures the rights of others. The Focus on rights detracts individuals from performing their duties. A plea is made for greater stress on duties than rights.Printed Pages: 260. 106059

3813 Bharat Karnad
Why India is Not a Great Power (Yet)
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2015; 0199459223; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Since the economic liberalization of the early 1990s, India has been, on several occasions and at different forums, feted as a great power. This subject has been discussed in numerous books, but mostly in terms of rapid economic growth and immense potential in the emerging market. There is also a vast collection of literature on India's 'soft power'—culture, tourism, frugal engineering, and knowledge economy. However, there has been no serious exploration of the alternative path India can take to achieving great power status—a combination of hard power, geostrategics, and realpolitik. In this book, Bharat Karnad delves exclusively into these hard power aspects of India's rise and the problems associated with them. He offers an incisive analysis of the deficits in the country's military capabilities and in the 'software' related to hard power—absence of political vision and will, insensitivity to strategic geography, and unimaginative foreign and military policies—and arrives at powerful arguments on why these shortfalls have prevented the country from achieving the great power status.Printed Pages: 568. 104490

An Incredible War: Indian Air Force in Kashmir War 1947-1948 (Second Edition)
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789381904527; Second Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
If the Indian Air Force had not put our troops airlifted in the early hours of 27th October, 1947 from Delhi on the ground at Srinagar which was menacingly threatened by Pakistan forces, the history and map of India might well have been quite different. In those momentous hours the Indian Army and Indian Air Force, in a heroic joint operation, began to roll back the blatant aggression of Pakistani military and save Jammu & Kashmir from the marauders. Independent Indias first war started with no other means available to assist the beleaguered local forces and Indian Army troops were moved by air under grave emergency conditions from Delhi to stem the enemys advance. From this point started the saga of the an almost forgotten war: the first and the longest war independent India was forced to fight and where the fledgling air force, emaciated by partition and preoccupied with relief and rescue operations following massive riots and demographic movements played a crucial role in Indias defence.Indian Air Force continued to play a vital role during that most incredible war and this book chronicles the history of its role, where all the bits and pieces have been brought together by the painstaking persistence of the author to share the glorious record of the Indian Air Force. The men in blue, knowing the challenges of an aggressive military, the weather and terrain of high altitude and the difficulties of supplying our troops, working closely with the army knew that it executed one of most brilliant military campaigns in its history under the most daunting circumstances feats that it has continued to repeat ever since then. But time and again the air force moved troops into critical battles and provided extensive combat support in uncharted areas to turn the tide. Within the IAF the deeds of pilots, engineers, technicians and other personnel during that war became legend and inspired succeeding generations. But little has been written or known in and outside the service about how our inheritance was shaped by so few. This volume tells the story for the first time, painstakingly put together from extensive research and interviews by the author.Printed Pages: 472. 104285

Unknown and Unsung: Indian Air Force in Sino-India War of 1962
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904411; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
One of the many neglected chapters in the Indian military history is the role played by the Indian Air Force in the Sino-Indian War of 1962. The only document on the subject is a 25-page chapter in the unpublished Official History, which fails to do justice the vital and remarkable role played by the IAF in some of the most hostile operating conditions found anywhere in the world. This work attempts to fills this vital gap. Indian Air Force had been involved in buildup in Ladakh and N.E.F.A. right from the time the first of many posts was set up in 1950. Thereafter, it was its responsibility to support and sustain the posts set up in both the sectors as well as various patrols that were sent forward to show the Indian flag. The IAF was also involved in Armys build-up.This was one continuous operation for the IAF day in day out the only break that aircrew could get was due to bad weather. The main test for the IAF came when the Indians and the Chinese came to face-to-face at Thagla ridge and the Chinese invasion commencing soon thereafter. The demand for airlift increased manifold suddenly with an urgency associated with forces that have been caught unprepared. The IAF met the challenge, the ground crews working round the clock and the aircrews flying in conditions that are difficult to imagine. There is no other instance in the aviation history wherein any Air Force has been able to increase its effort almost ten times the IAFs resources were already stretched even before September 62. Each and every Armys demand was met without any murmur and there is not a single adversity that can be attributed to the inability of the IAF to deliver.What is not surprising is that the credit that is due to the IAF for its efforts has eluded it so far because no attention has been paid to the role played by the IAF in this War. The story would have been altogether different if the combat elements of the IAF had been utilized the reasons for the same still remain shrouded in mystery. Another chapter in the IAF history about very little is known is its efforts to modernize post 1962. This work attempts to unravel these mysteries as well as describes the valiant efforts of the air warriors of the IAF.Printed Pages: 422. 104322

3825 Bharati Krsna Tirthaji Maharaja (Author) & V.S. Agrawala (Ed.)
Vedic Mathematics: His Holiness Jagadguru Sankaracarya Sri Bharati Krsna Tirthaji Maharaja of Govardhana Matha, Puri (1884-1960)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8120801636; Seventeenth Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Vedic Mathematics or 'Sixteen Simple Mathematical Formulae from the Vedas' was written by His Holiness Jagadguru Sankaracarya Sri Bharati Krsna Tirthaji Maharaja of Govardhana Matha, Puri. It deals mainly with various Vedic mathematical formulae and their applications for carrying out tedious and cumbersome arithmetical operations, and to a very large extent, executing them mentally. In this field of mental arithmetical operations, the works of the famous mathematicians Trachtenberg and Lester Meyers (High Speed Maths) are elementary compared to that of Jagadguruji. Some people may find it difficult, at first reading to understand the arithmetical operations although they have been explained very lucidly by Jagadguruji. It is not because the explanations are lacking in any manner but because the methods are totally unconventional. Some people are so deeply rooted in the conventional methods that they, probably subconsciously, reject to see the logic in unconventional methods.An attempt has been made to explain the unconventional aspects of vedic methods. Once the reader gets used to the unconventional in the beginning itself, he would find no difficulty in the later chapters. Therefore, the explanatory notes are given for the first few chapters only.Printed Pages: 401 102121

3826 Bharati Puri
Engaged Buddhism: The Dalai Lama's Worldview
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2009; 0198062486; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
This volume elaborates on, examines, and understands the Dalai Lama's thought on various current issues such as non-violence, human rights, and the political issue of the autonomy of Tibet. This is one of the first books in spite of the range of books on the Dalai Lama to actually seek out the conceptual foundations of his thought. The Dalai Lama's ethical teachings have gained worldwide recognition primarily because his actions and writings reflect a concern for combining ancient religious traditions with a contemporary political, social, and religious cause. His thought extends to the arena of international politics and human relations.By categorizing the Dalai Lama's thought under various headings and sub-themes, the book attempts to articulate and carry out an analysis of this thought. Allusions to other thinkers and writers have been made in order to draw parallels to the thought of the Dalai Lama. Such a comparative approach helps to bring out the significance of the eclectic dimensions of the Dalai Lama s thought. The author collates in this work perhaps the most comprehensive bibliography ever put together of the Dalai Lama's works. She also provides the entire transcription of an interview with the Dalai Lama which she conducted personally in August 2001. Printed Pages: 263. 015269

Heartfelt
Om Books International; New Delhi, India; 9789380070155; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Attractive Medha Gujral and renowned filmmaker, Shekhar Kapur, ended their high-profile marriage in a us Hazari divorce court in New Delhi. Bhajan Samrat Anup Jalota had two infamously unsuccessful marriages behind him. When Medha and Anup met, a series of failed relationships and a passion for music was the only common ground between them. But as man and woman, they became inseparable. The arrival of precious baby Aryaman multiplied their happiness. However, this unbridled bliss was rudely truncated when Wedha was diagnosed with a debilitating congenital heart disease in 2000. Since then the Jalotas have seen it all a chordae of her mitral valve cut by mistake in a US hospital, an emergency open-heart surgery, a lifesaving heart transplant and a hospital check-in scheduled in New York on, believe it or not, 9/11 in 2001. But, despite a decade and more of dwindling health, near-encounters with death, emotional oscillations and spiralling medical bills, Anup and Wedha celebrate every moment of their life together. Heartfelt: The Inspirational Story Of Medha Anup Jalota is a living statement of how the mind can baffle, even heal the body, when medical science gives up on you.Printed Pages: 232. 105176

Madhubani Art
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789385285080; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 245 x 210 Mm 
Madhubani, literally meaning madhu (honey) and ban (forest), i.e., a forest of honey, is a folk art form of the Mithila region of Bihar and parts of Nepal. Its origin is believed to go back to the ancient era of the Ramayana, when the town was decorated by inhabitants of the region for the wedding of Lord Rama and Sita with elaborate wall paintings and murals. The philosophy of Madhubani art is essentially based on the principle of dualism. The artscape appears inundated with divine deities, the sun and moon, and flora and fauna along with features found in Buddhism, Islamic Sufism, tantric symbols and classical Hinduism. Primarily a significant socio-cultural engagement for the womenfolk of Bihar, this art was a welcome break from their daily drudgery. Immersed in the folklore of Mithila, fresh forms and figures are painted and repainted on walls and floors of their homes to mark special occasions. Well-established procedures are followed and techniques are passed on from one generation to the next, keeping the ephemeral art form and ancestral tradition and its lore alive. Madhubani artists today are seen to work more with brushes and acrylic paint rather than natural dyes and pigments. They now also work on paper, cloth, canvas and wood to create art and artifacts, besides painting on walls and floors. Printed Pages: 112 with numerous colour illustrations. 039136

3834 Bhasa; Translated By A.N.D. Haksar
The Shattered Thigh and Other Plays
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0143104306; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
Bhasa is one of the most celebrated names in classical Sanskrit literature. He lived and wrote about two thousand years ago. Though his dates have not been conclusively established, it is certain that Bhasa preceded Kalidasa, the great poet and dramatist of ancient India, who has praised Bhasa by name in one of his own plays. Bhasa's works were considered lost and it was only in the beginning of the twentieth century that some of his plays were recovered. Six of these, which form the present collection, are based on the Mahabharata, which provides a thematic unity to the plays. Bhasa's strengths were his skilful melding of dialogue, legend and dramatic action. The comparatively short and fast-paced plays in The Shattered Thigh are remarkable in their nearness to modern idiom despite their antiquity. Of the six plays in this collection four—The Middle One, The Envoy, The Message and Karna's Burden—are one-act plays evoking tragic and heroic emotions. Five Nights and The Shattered Thigh have three and two acts respectively. The latter is a tragedy in which the hero dies on stage, an innovation that is very unusual in Sanskrit drama.

3836 Bhaskar
The Collision of Culture
Bharatiya Vidya Prakashan; Delhi, India; 2000; Softcover; New; 
There has hardly been a year in the twentieth century when war was not being waged somewhere on the globe. Mankind seems to have evolved in shunning imperialism and colonialism. Yet the conflicts go on perennially and the grounds for collisions have also evolved. The ethic and cultural identity often deriving its Roots from the archetypal symbols incorporated in the Religion has superceded the national boundaries. Bhaskar Vyas and Rajni Vyas in this psycho-philosophical treatise explore how people world over endeavor to beautify life by evolving finer expression of their culture. They succinctly paraphrase the identity of self with cultural symbols through archetypal images. They examine the instinct of aggression particularly under the population pressures as well as childhood deprivation. Deriving support for their hypothesis from the empirical data from historical perspective of the conflicts of the century, they identify a teleological evolution of man. parallel with but far more accelerated than, the Darwinian. In the concluding chapter, they evaluate various software systems that our civilization has evolved for the conflict resolution. Thought all religions arc full of such a repertoire, they arc more often the cause of the collisions than resolution. Politics has come to be the first and last resort of a scoundrel; though there is A Hope from the statesmen of distinction: Activists organizations and Fourth Estate have only limited roles. Resting on the holistic view, they envisage an omega point where the participatory anthropic principle seems to be Driving the intelligence over the entire universe. A definite programme to keep the individual intelligence-pragyana and the collective consciousness clear is elucidated. 103711

Participation at the Crossroads: Decentralisation and Water Politics in West Bengal
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8125063080; Hardcover; New; New; 
There is a trend the world over to make governments more accountable and responsive to local people through decentralisation of authority. Such an effort is aimed at overcoming inefficient allocation of natural resources by centrally administered agencies. The objective is to encourage participation of people in the decision-making process at the grassroots level. In India, the 73rd constitutional amendment of 1992 decentralised agriculture, irrigation and management of drinking water to the Panchayats. In West Bengal, the Panchayats were revitalised much before the constitutional amendment, soon after the Left Front government came to power. While the initial phase of Left Front rule saw enthusiastic participation by the village poor, when the water crisis reached a peak during the last years of Left Front rule, relatively few people in villages took part in government-sponsored initiatives. This leads to the core question: Why do more people not participate? Why are small cultivators and agricultural labourers, who are most profoundly affected by decisions regarding water management, even less inclined to be involved in decision-making? Participation at the Crossroads discusses decentralised governance and the politics of water management in India, with specific focus on West Bengal. Through fieldwork in villages during the last years of Left Front rule in the state, the author highlights the little studied aspect of local participation in decision-making processes relating to allocation of water. Through his case studies, the author shows how the unavailability of water is causing small cultivators to turn away from agriculture; the reasons behind the low turnout of small cultivators and agricultural labourers at village meetings; and how political interference at various levels in decentralisation creates problems, often leading to a skewed access to water.This timely and important book will be very useful to students and scholars of development studies, political science, public administration, anthropology, and sociology. It will also be invaluable to practitioners working in the fields of water policy and rural management. Printed Pages: 156. 110979

Mourning the Nation: Indian Cinema in the Wake of Partition
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8125040501; First Indian Edition; Paperback; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
The political truncation of 1947 led to a social cataclysm in which about a million perished and some twelve million became homeless. Combining film studies, trauma theory and South Asian cultural history, Bhaskar Sarkar follows the shifting traces of this event in Indian cinema of the next six decades. He argues that Partition remains a wound in the collective psyche of South Asia, and its screen representations foster an affective historical consciousness that supplements standard history-writing. Tracking cinema’s reluctance to deal with the Partition in the 1950s and 1960s, and the eventual ‘return of the repressed’ from the mid-1980s, Sarkar draws attention to a gradual and complex process of cultural mourning. Even the initial ‘silence’ was never complete, not only because of atypical Partition films such as Lahore, Apna Desh and Ritwik Ghatak’s trilogy, but also because the trauma frequently surfaced in indirect, allegorical forms. He points to the split families, mutilated bodies, amnesiac protagonists, and foundlings of Adalat, Waqt, and Deedar; the melancholic sensibility and style of Aag or Amar; and the obsessive search for happiness in the romantic films starring Uttam Kumar and Suchitra Sen. Sarkar relates the recent proliferation of films about Partition and its aftermath—including Tamas, Gadar, Border and Naseem—to a rising disillusionment with the postcolonial state, the anti-Sikh riots of 1984, economic liberalisation and the emergence of a Hindu-chauvinist nationalism. Covering Hindi and Bengali commercial cinema, art cinema, and television, Mourning the Nation provides a striking history of Indian cinema that will be of interest not only to specialists of media, literature, and cultural history, but also to lay readers with an investment in the psychobiography of the nation.

Nyayakusumanjali: Hindu Rational Enquiry Into the Existence of God
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1999; 8173051518; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 22 Cm 
Nyayakusumanjali is a classic work on the logical enquiry into the existence of God by Udayanacarya, A Hindu philosopher-theologian of the 10th - 11th century. Exhaustive interpretative exposition of Udayana's auto-commentary has been a demanding necessity, owing to the difficult nature of the work involving terse logical subtleties, for the students of Hindu theology. The text has been divided into five chapters. In the first four chapters objections advanced by the opponents against the existence of God have been analysed and refuted, and the proponent's standpoint is stated. The fifth, the last chapter of the text, advances the positive proofs for the existence of God. In the translation of the karikas and in the interpretative exposition of Udayana's auto-commentary main emphasis is laid on bringing out the contents of the text, some of which is known but most of which is hidden behind the text, due to the difficult nature of expression, analysis and methodology followed in the composition of the work.

The Eight Limbs of Yoga: Pathway to Liberation
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8120834690; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
One of the greatest ancient texts of yoga is the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Here in this book the focus is on the centrepiece of Patanjali's work known as Ashtanga, the Eight Limbs of Yoga. The Ashtanga system is articulated in the Sadhana Pada. It provides a blue-print for living a conscious life, engendering personal transformation and ultimately experiencing self-realization. It is not the only system in Yoga. There are many different pathways and techniques in this sacred science. The limbs do, however, give us great guidance and insight into the heart of Yogic practice and philosophy, while offering us the opportunity to grow, heal and thrive. They are synergistic and as we weave them into our lives there arises a tapestry of spiritual awakening. Patanjali's Ashtanga provides a proven and time-tested pathway for this self-extraction, like a prescription from the Divine for what ails us in body, mind and soul. In exploring the Eight Limbs of Yoga, the author delves into how relevant this ancient system is for our modern times, and provides observations and, most importantly, practices to help you embody, live and benefit from this wisdom. The author provides both a modern perspective on the Sutras and a series of practices to bring them into your everyday life.

Amitabh Bachchan has long since sublimated the language of cinema that is peculiar to Hindi films. He has worked its verbs, overwhelmed its adjectives, brought to life its nouns, subjugated its predicates and predicated its subjects. One realises that nearly every word in the English language could find its place in the cinematic vocabulary of Amitabh Bachchan. Amitabh Lexicon is a compilation of selective words from the alphabets of the English language associated with different scenes from the actor's body of work – scenes where he made you cry, laugh, and all shook up. This colourful dictionary is a joyride to nostalgia for everyone who has grownup on a staple diet of Hindi films and Amitabh Bachchan. Printed Pages: 352. 036490

Hema Malini: The Authorized Biography
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174366504; Softcover; New; 
Hema Malini, the quintessential 'Dream Girl'of Hindi cinema, has truly nurtured a dream and followed it to its realization. After being unceremoniously dropped from her first Tamil film as the director felt that she didn't have 'star quality', Hema signed the Hindi film she was offered opposite Raj Kapoor. Just eighteen, she soon conquered the hearts of all moviegoers with her beauty, grace and charisma. From Johnny Mera Naam to Sholay, from Meera to Baghbaan, she has portrayed a diverse range of characters that will always remain a part of film legend. Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand, Sanjeev Kumar . she worked with all the leading stars, but it was with Dharmendra that the chemistry on screen was palpable. The special bond she shared with Dharmendra set the rumour mills buzzing, and defying all conventions, Hema married her Jat hero in May 1980. Striking a perfect balance between her personal and professional life, Hema maintains a dignity about the little world she shares with daughters Esha and Ahana. This intimate portrayal, the first authorized biography, by Bhawana Somaaya is a result of her long years of association with Hema as a film journalist and critic. Hema speaks to Bhawana more candidly than ever before about her life, with and without Dharmendra, her children, her mother and her twin passions of dance and acting. Printed Pages: 218. 108533

A treasure-house of recipes and customs that define the Parsi way of life Celebrations, rituals and food inevitably go together. And so it is with the Parsis. From Navroz, the dawn of the Parsi New Year, to Navjote, the initiation ceremony of a young child, lagan or marriage, jashans and ghambhars, there is a variety of food to suit every occasion. In this unique book, Bhicoo J. Manekshaw takes the reader on a journey far beyond the traditional stereotypical dhan sakh recipe. For those who love fish, there is a choice of patrani machchi (fish in banana leaves), masala ni machchi or the famed tarapori patio made with sookha boomla (Bombay duck), amongst many others. The Parsi weakness for eggs, on the other hand, has created a range of mouth-watering dishes from the kera per eeda (eggs cooked on bananas) to the humble scrambled egg. There are also teatime snacks, sweets, and desserts and a chapter on kitchen medicine straight from grandmother’s recipe book. Interlaced with the recipes is the author’s piquant description of the customs, rituals and ceremonies that form the Parsi way of life. Printed Pages: 240. 032936

The Buddha’s Teachings on Prosperity: At Home, At Work, In the World
Wisdom Publications; Boston, USA; 2009; 0861715470; First Edition; Paperback; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Money and investing. Family. Relationships. Work and business. Sex. What could the Buddha tell us about such worldly concerns? Actually, quite a lot, and you'll find it all here. Some of it might well surprise you. All of it will guide you toward a more prosperous, more fulfilling, and truly happier way of life. The Buddha had an unusually keen insight into what people with everyday concerns need to know, and The Buddha's Teachings on Prosperity delivers the actual teachings that he gave to all those many people he encountered who were not monks or nuns-or even, meditators. This is practical advice on the important stuff of life, those things nearly all of us must deal with in order to enjoy a meaningful, lasting happiness: * Taking care of children and aging parents * Providing for our families * Working with employees and business partners * Finding and maintaining love relationships and marital partnerships * Making responsible, ethical financial decisions * Cultivating the best in your personality These very do-able teachings are specifically for those who can't or (for whatever reason) won't be devoting their lives to meditation or any kind of religious practice-but who nonetheless wish to minimize their suffering, maximize their joy, and help create a better world.

Boyhood
Penguin Books India Pvt. Ltd./Prakash Books; New Delhi, India; 0143420070; Softcover; New; 
In a bustling town in Punjab before the Partition, a sickly but restless child longs to play with the neighbourhood youngsters. He is constantly thwarted by his mother?s anxious need to coddle him at home. When not being punished for using foul language, he is fighting with his siblings or being teased by the servant. As time passes and his curiosity of the wider world deepens, he discovers that his father is not invincible, that his long-held derision of girls vanishes with the first bloom of sexual longing and that the playground battles of old are no match for life's cruelties. Boyhood is a haunting portrait of the inescapable agonies and unfathomable desires of childhood by one of Hindi literature's most towering luminaries. Printed Pages: 240. 107270

3892 Bhkikhu Parekh
Debating India: Essays on Indian Political Discourse
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2015; 0198060459; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
India has had a long tradition of public debate going back to around 1000 BCE. But surprisingly, the knowledge of its existence has largely remained confined to a small field of critics or specialists. Debating India traces the origins and development of the Indian tradition of public debate and the various forms it took at different times in Indian history. It examines some of the major debates that occurred during the independence struggle and the ways in which they structured the conceptual and moral parameters of the Indian political imagination. The debates involved Gandhi, Tagore, Nehru, Ambedkar, and Hindu militants, and centred on the kind of country India was and should aspire to be.Gandhi's non-violent struggle claims to provide an answer to deep differences of views and conflicts of interest. Presenting riveting accounts, such as of Einstein's views on Gandhi's philosophy of Ahimsa or of Gandhi-Tagore debates, and through an imaginary dialogue between Gandhi and Osama bin Laden, Parekh critically examines the strengths and weaknesses of Gandhian philosophy. In the process, the book points to a richer and politically more realistic approach to public debate than are currently on offer.Printed Pages: 400. 104487

3897 Bhojraj Pokharel & Shrishti Rana
Nepal Votes for Peace
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789382993032; Softcover; New; 
Nepal has a long history of political struggle and popular uprisings have often threatened the existing regimes of this landlocked predominantly Hindu state. In 1996 radical Maoists launched what would become the protracted armed struggle known as The People’s War with the aim of replacing the parliamentary system and the constitutional monarchy with a people’s republic. Thousands of people died and even more were injured over the next ten years in bitter fighting which ravaged the country and shocked the world. The gruesome murder of King Birendra his wife and seven other royal family members in 2001 prompted more international concern about the future of Nepal. The violence eventually came to an end in 2005–2006 when the demand for a Constituent Assembly election was agreed upon. The election was finally held on 10 April 2008 marking one of the most significant events in Nepal’s political history because it abolished the country’s 239-year-old monarchy and established a multiparty democratic republic. This book penned by the former Chief Election Commissioner of Nepal narrates the country’s transformation from a kingdom to a multiparty democratic republic holding Constituent Assembly election. It also discusses the roles of national and international organizations including the United Nations in the ongoing peace process of Nepal.Printed Pages: 280. 101459

3900 Bhrigupati Singh
Poverty and the Quest for Life: Spiritual and Material Striving in Rural India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2015; 0199459665; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Indian subdistrict of Shahabad, located in the dwindling forests of the southeastern tip of Rajasthan, is an area of extreme poverty. Beset by droughts and food shortages in recent years, it is the home of the Sahariyas, former bonded laborers, officially classified as Rajasthan`s only `primitive tribe`. From afar, we might consider this the bleakest of the bleak, but in Poverty and the Quest for Life, Bhrigupati Singh asks us to reconsider just what quality of life means. He shows how the Sahariyas conceive of aspiration, advancement and vitality in both material and spiritual terms and how such bridging can engender new possibilities of life. Singh organizes his study around two themes - power and ethics, through which he explores a complex terrain of material and spiritual forces. Authority remains contested, whether in divine or human forms - the state is both despised and desired, high and low castes negotiate new ways of living together, in conflict but also cooperation - new gods move across rival social groups, animals and plants leave their tracks on human subjectivity and religiosity and the potential for vitality persists even as natural resources steadily disappear. Studying this milieu, Singh offers new ways of thinking beyond the religion-secularism and nature-culture dichotomies, juxtaposing questions about quality of life with political theologies of sovereignty, neighborliness and ethics, in the process painting a rich portrait of perseverance and fragility in contemporary rural India.
