3802 Basu Rai
Basu Rai from the streets of Kathmandu
Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789382711407; Softcover; New; 
A little boy climbs down the stairs and runs out of his house. Most little ones do that. But this little boy has no one to stop him. He does not have a name. He only has the memory of a story his father has told him over and over again, from the time he was just six months old until his dying day, when the child was about four years old. It is the story of his father's love affair with his mother and betrayal.From the streets of Kathmandu, this is the story of a child who names himself Basu Rai, and who travels the corridors of the world, takes part in the Global March against child labour and arrive finally in the country he identifies as his own—India.Though Basu has found his country, his quest for family is not over. His search for identity begins with his book which maps the step by step progress of a reticent toddler from a welltodo family through being a violent street child and a child labourer returning from the jaws of death several times, to his fights to go to school, being school captain and finally at 26, with the telling of his story in a book.This is an inspirational story which tells about nurturing by a father. It is also a story that tells us here was a case for nurturing by the state, which was completely missing. It, instead, points to the loopholes in the systems in place, the social welfare systems, the education systems and the family systems that the subcontinent so boasts about but in reality, does not exist. It directs us to the vacuum children are often forced to grow up in. To get an enlightened and educated young citizen from nothing is nothing short of a miracle. 107218

3819 Bela Lal
The Night of Kaamini
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0143101552; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Old sins have long shadows. Thakur Ram Prasad’s enchantment with a pair of beautiful eyes triggered series of events—love, anguish and, finally, redemption—which unfolded over four decades and affected the lives of all who were close to him. His daughter, Kaamini, betrayed by the very people who should have loved her best, turned her back on the past and made a life for herself and her daughter, Mita, in Ram Prasad’s rambling old kothi, looking after the lands she inherited in the small town of Mukundganj. Mita grew up unaware of the secrets that that lingered in the walls and courtyards of the kothi. But once she went to engineering college and met and fell in love with a fellow student, Amit, she had to confront the reticence and sorrow that surrounded her mother’s life, and to bravely lay the ghosts of the past. Bela Lal’s beautifully crafted tale weaves effortlessly between the turbulence of the 1940s—the time of Kaamini’s youth—and the sweeping social changes of the1980s, as Mita and Amit try to plan their future in the face of silence, opposition and mistrust. Lal’s authentic characters, her ability to evoke recent historical periods with vividness and authority and, above all, her unmatched ability as a storyteller, make The Night of Kaamini an unforgettable read.

3820 Bela Lal
For Honour
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 9789381523834; Softcover; New; 
HONOUR means different things to different people. For the Khimjas honour is the purity of their race, the continuity of their orthodox traditions, the maintenance of the rules of caste, gotra and clan. The quick and summary justice that is meted out to those who flout these unwritten, but implacable rules is part of their known and accepted culture. Om Prakash Khimja, the sarpanch of the village of Angratta and the undisputed leader of the Khimjas of the village, is instrumental in the destruction of the love affair between a Khimja girl, and a boy from a lower caste. But what will he do when his own daughter falls in love with a non-Khimja. Anant, the outsider with a past, an enigma that even Om Khimja could not unravel, plays his part with finesse, managing, manipulating, and finally escaping from the politics and rivalries of village life. But does he really escape the Khimja retribution? With a masterful pen, Bela Lal has drawn an authentic sketch of the horizon where urban and rural lives merge, mix and conflict. Her vividly drawn characters, her authoritative description of contemporary Gujjar history brings to life a canvas of the complexities of our modern times.Printed Pages: 228. 106546

Interest Rates and Coupon Bonds in Quantum Finance
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2009; 0521889286; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 180 x 255 Mm 
he economic crisis of 2008 has shown that the capital markets need new theoretical and mathematical concepts to describe and price financial instruments. Focusing on interest rates and coupon bonds, this book does not employ stochastic calculus – the bedrock of the present day mathematical finance – for any of the derivations. Instead, it analyzes interest rates and coupon bonds using quantum finance. The Heath-Jarrow-Morton and the Libor Market Model are generalized by realizing the forward and Libor interest rates as an imperfectly correlated quantum field. Theoretical models have been calibrated and tested using bond and interest rates market data. Building on the principles formulated in the author’s previous book (Quantum Finance, Cambridge University Press, 2004) this ground-breaking book brings together a diverse collection of theoretical and mathematical interest rate models. It will interest physicists and mathematicians researching in finance, and professionals working in the finance industry. Contents 1. Synopsis 2. Interest rates and coupon bonds 3. Options and option theory 4. Interest rate and coupon bond options 5. Quantum field theory of bond forward interest rates 6. Libor Market Model of interest rates 7. Empirical analysis of forward interest rates 8. Libor Market Model of interest rate options 9. Numeraires for bond forward interest rates 10. Empirical analysis of interest rate caps 11. Coupon bond European and Asian options 12. Empirical analysis of interest rate swaptions 13. Correlation of coupon bond options 14. Hedging interest rate options 15. Interest rate Hamiltonian and option theory 16. American options for coupon bonds and interest rates 17.

In 9.5 Theses on Art and Class, Ben Davis takes on a broad array of contemporary art’s most persistent debates: How does creative labor fit into the economy? Is art merging with fashion and entertainment? What can we expect from political art? Davis argues that returning class to the center of discussion can play a vital role in tackling the challenges that visual art faces today, including the biggest challenge of all—how to maintain faith in art itself in a dysfunctional world.

In the Club: Associational Life in Colonial South Asia
Orient BlackSwan; Hyderabad, India; 2015; 8125059083; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Clubs in India are often regarded as antiquarian institutions left over from a bygone era with little to teach us about the past or present. Yet, In the Club presents a different picture of India’s clubland. This book offers a comprehensive examination of social clubs across India. It argues that clubs have been key contributors to India’s colonial associational life and civil society, and remain important nodes in public culture today. Using government records, personal memoirs, private club records, and club histories themselves, In the club explores colonial club life with chapters arranged thematically. Legal underpinnings bind clubs within, and to each other, across regional and national borders. Many clubs occupy prime locations and maintain their historic interiors. All clubs faced financial crises as they increasingly entered the global marketplace. No club could function without servants and staff, while issues of race and class in clubs continues to be debated today. Women’s clubs occupy an important place in clubland, while many clubs continue to thrive today in their postcolonial milieus. This book will be critical reading for scholars of history and sociology as well as social scientists interested in colonialism, associational life and civil society in India. It will also be of interest to intellectually engaged club members, aspiring members, or just those curious about the inner-workings of clubs across India and beyond. Printed Pages: 224. 038350

Psychology and Experience
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 052101199X; First Paperback Edition; Paperback; New; 150 x 230 Mm 
If personal experience is the basic raw material for psychology, why do all the major psychologies of the past century marginalise or deny it? In this thought-provoking new book Benjamin Bradley shows how our everyday experiences need to be at the core of the scientific discipline. He calls for a move away from attempts to reconcile the many contrasting and often opposing theories and philosophies of contemporary psychology, and instead puts forward a scholarly and exciting new vision for psychology which focuses on the ‘here-and-now’ and the importance of others as equals in teaching and research. He encourages the reader to reconsider the very basis of our understanding of what experience is. This uniquely inspiring and practical text will prove an invaluable resource for all those interested in teaching, learning and researching about the mind. • A thought provoking study which reclaims the psychology of experience • Realigns assumptions made about the discipline of psychology • Professor Bradley is a well respected psychologist who has published widely in the areas of developmental and social psychology Contents Preface; 1. Introduction; 2. Learning from experience; 3. From here to synchrony; 4. What to make of coincidence; 5. The topography of intersubjective space; 6. The two axes of psychological explanation; 7.

Fingerprint/Prakash Books; New Delhi, India; 8175993286; Softcover; New; 
An apprentice to his brother at twelve, a writer at sixteen, a printer at twenty-two, and an inventor at thirty-six, Benjamin Franklin was a renowned polymath and a scientist extraordinaire.

The Concept of Dharma in Valmiki Ramayana
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1983; 8121501342; Second Edition; Cloth; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The Ramayana of Valmiki is the first and the most ancient epic of India. If seers of the past wished that it should live as long as hills and dales' it is because the epic, on the main, concerns with Man and his life in this world. Its emphasis is on Dharma or righteousness in its varied forms as bind man-to-man in day-to-day social relationships. It contains precepts for the regulation of our conduct in all actions and conditions. It makes us alive to what we owe to others-to our parents, wife and children, to our friends, to mankind and to our country at large. It also teaches us to love and practice virtues and how, that way, the good ultimately becomes victorious over evil and peace reigns on earth. This study is calculated to show to the present generation how in this age of seething doubts we may still draw inspiration from that ancient epic and how most of the problems that are baffling modern society can be solved by understanding and following the precepts held out by it. It also shows how the western ethics compare with the ancient ethical notion of the Ramayana. Printed Pages: 229. 001230

Hindu World: An Encyclopedic Survey of Hinduism, 2 Vols.

Never before has the fabulous world of Hinduism been dealt within its entirety in a single work. This book presents the vast pageant of India in all its teeming variety. It is the first general encyclopaedia of Hinduism covering every major aspect of Hindu life and thought, embodying the results of recent scholarship, yet not ignoring the traditional point of view. Of absorbing interest, it will be found to contain a wealth of information not readily available to the general reader. It is astonishingly wide in range: besides religion, philosophy, yoga, art, music, architecture, history and mythology, it deals in fascinating detail with scores of lesser-known subjects such as dress, diet, festivals, handicrafts, psychology, science, alchemy, magic, tantrism, medicine, erotics, dance, social observances and cult cites. As a reference book Hindu World is unique, and will appeal both to the layman and the scholar. It contains over 700 lucidly-written articles, each of which gives a comprehensive account of the subject, and by a system of cross references interlinks all topics related to it, so that a single theme may be traced in all its ramifications through the whole book. An Index of over 8000 items, which in itself forms a veritable treasury of Sanskrit terms and names, will further assist the reader in finding his way among the lesser topics treated in the work.

Indira Gandhi: A Political Biography (1966 - 1984)
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380828626; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Twenty years after her death, study on Indira Gandhi still exercises an interest. A chronicle of the years between 1966 and 1984 during which, except for two or three years, Indira Gandhi was India's Prime Minister. The book is a historical study of the tumultuous events in which Indira Gandhi played a dominant role. The author has tried to piece together these momentous events into an integral narrative so that it reads like a story Father Benny Aguiar delves into his memory to write about the period when Indira Gandhi dominated the Indian politics. Indira became the Prime Minister of India in 1966 and remained so, barring the period 1977-79, till her assassination in 1984. She had a colossal presence and the history of India of this period got closely interwoven with her story.It is in this sense that the book is important. It is not a historical record of events, which many other books have already done. Father Aguiar recounts from his experiences of the period to produce an emotional history that helps understand the situation as it existed then. It is a close brush with reality and tries to make an assessment about the various feelings that shaped Indira’s decision-making. He does not justify the Emergency but tries to understand why Indira Gandhi, who was a democrat, imposed a system that she was going to denounce when she came to power again in 1980. She spoke about the country needing a healing touch. Not in a thousand years, she said, would the need arise for another Emergency. Indira Gandhi was an enigma for most of her colleagues. She was politically smarter and could see through the events. This is why she upstaged most of them during her struggle for political survival. In doing so, she kept losing friends one after the other. Gradually her son Sanjay Gandhi was the only one she could rely on. The mother and son duo used to coordinate their activities for running the affairs of the country. But fate snatched away Sanjay from her and left her crest-fallen. She gathered the loose strings and began the task of governance. Indira Gandhi took tough and controversial decisions during her premiership. It is natural for people to dissect them post facto. A real understanding, however, will emerge only if the situation of that time is simulated. Father Aguiar tries to do that.Printed Pages: 230. 104690

Rajiv Gandhi- The flight of the Scion
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380828411; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
An accidental in politics, Rajiv Gandhi took the nation by storm with his vision of information technology. He adopted Gandhian swaraj by espousing grass roots democracy.On the flip side, Rajiv proved a poor judge of the company he kept. His minister VP Singh deserted his on the Bofors kickback issue. A whole lot of other colleagues in his cabinet abandoned him before the 1989 elections. He was also impatient for peace, signing accords in rapid succession with the respective secessionist groups of Mizoram, Assam and Punjab, and going on to persuade Sri Lanka to allow the deployment of Indian Peace Keeping Force in its territory. India and Rajiv too had to pay a heavy price for this last accord.In Rajiv Gandhi's assassination, the country lost a great leader. No doubt he made some mistakes, but he also had the uncanny ability to learn from them. What would have been the fate of the nation if Rajiv Gandhi were living? It is for the reader to draw this conclusion.Printed Pages: 163. 104792

Northern Frontiers of Buddhism: Buddhist Heritage of Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Kalmykla, Tibet, China, Mongolla and Siberia
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8120838130; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
One of the seeming miracles in the story of man is the spread of ideas, across the barriers of formidable mountains, vast oceans and national boundaries. The warm acceptance of concepts from distant lands goes to underline the deep similarity of human nature and aspirations everywhere. one of the greatest examples of the dissemination of philosophic and artistic ideas is the spread of Buddhism from the Indian subcontinent to the many countries of Asia. (We must remember that these ideas spread entirely without the use of the sword.Buddhism has a great vision of the eternal harmony of the world. This faith, with its message of compassion, spread far and wide and shaped the culture of a continent. This is a culture of peace and gentleness which continues, even in the midst of the materialistic world of today. From earliest times of Buddhism, the influences of the faith reached Afghanistan, Uzbekistan and other parts of Central Asia. It was both the Theravada and Mahayana orders that traveled far and wide across this region. The concept of samsara, of maya and mithya, the illusory nature of the material world around us, was crystallized in the Upanishads by the 8th or 9th century BCE. The high purpose in life was to be able to see beyond the veils of illusion, to the eternal truth. Persons who were able to achieve this were known as Buddhas or Enlightened Ones and Tirthankaras or Victors over the Fear of Death.Printed Pages: 148. 102035

The Indian Buddhist Iconography
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8173053138; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
This volume is an attempt to present a comprehensive work on Buddhist iconography of India, and is mainly based on Sanskrit text prepared from seven recensions of the Sadhanamala alias Sadhanasamuccaya. The text has been illustrated by pictures representing images in several luseums in India and elsewhere in the collection of numerous Nepalese monasteries. In the present work endeavour has been made to identify the images of I Buddhist deities by means of Dhyanas I given in the Sadhanamala. Wherever images could not be procured, the Sadhana bas been illustrated with the help of sketches or drawings prepared by Nepalese chitrakaras of Buddhist origin from the ancient albums of their forefathers. Where no drawing could be obtained only the original text has en quoted with a translation. The importance of Indian Buddhist Iconography lies not only in its being one the earliest authentic account but as one-of the most outstanding ark on the subject not withstanding le change in perception due to new material and research. The work which long been out-of-print is being re-issued for the use of art-historians, archaeologists, conservators and also pr the lay readers.

The present volume is a sincere attempt to have a critical and exhaustive study of the maritime trade and overseas activities of early India, particularly that of Odisha.

The Philosophical Understanding of Human Rights
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8124607141; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Human rights is a topic that gets vividly and seriously debated at varied platforms, globally. The concept of human rights has a rich philosophical and theoretical tradition, and its philosophical dimension deserves proper attention. Having given an account of the origins and historical development of the idea of human rights, the book investigates the doctrine of natural rights and its critiques, and assesses the world-view that has affected its formulations. The work also presents a clear exposition of some contemporary philosophical theories of rights developed independently of the natural rights paradigm and discusses the theories wherein the conception of rights is found to be compatible with utilitarianism. And, finally, while briefly arguing for discursive understanding of human rights based on the diversity of morals that is embedded in different cultural traditions of the world and for reconstruction of the conception of human rights in more inclusive and cross-cultural terms, the author analyses the conception of human dignity from the Vedantic perspective as a case study, which is regarded as an important underlying principle of human rights. The volume is intended to introduce students and practitioners of human rights, and general readers to the philosophy of human rights. 100422

Media By Mediation
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0761934286; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This volume, the first in a three-book series titled Communication Processes, is devoted to understanding the politics in, and of, communication. It explores both the ground on which processes of communication unfold and the political configurations implied in communication processes. This two-pronged approach questions the preoccupation in Indian scholarship with the `deployment` of communication technology, and the `impact` of mass media, and suggests a repositioning of `communication` as an interdisciplinary domain of enquiry. Like in the ensuing volumes, the editors of this book juxtapose a pluralist universe of conceptual articulations, theoretical constructs and empirical validations. In addressing these questions, the contributors steer through, on the one hand, the modernization-inspired tradition of communication research in India—predominated by impact and reception studies—and, on the other, global trends that shaped the glut of fashionable writings—coincidental with and spurred by transnational television and the internet—during the 1990s.

The Social and the Symbolic
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0761934464; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book argues that communication – an exchange of symbols – is the essence of society and that this exchange is the foundation on which the human collective is based. It explores how the collective sense of the self is defined either with reference to, or in defiance of, dominant existing traditions. The various essays highlight the links between culture studies and the use of communication in binding together a community as also to provide a voice to the unheard and the unsung. Beginning by describing the pertinence of communication to grasping the overall substance of social reality, the volume is divided into the following three parts: - Forms of self-identity: This section looks at the emergence and construction of personal and collective identities through myths, religious idioms, stories and traditions of marginalized communities. - Grounds of work relations: Here, the contributors focus on occupations and vocations of the peasant and artisan communities of western India. - Bonds of health practices: The focus of this section is on healthcare practices and knowledge of traditional communities. The second in a three-volume series titled Communication Processes, this book will be of considerable interest to scholars of communication and media studies, oral studies as also social workers dealing with health practices.

Communication, Culture and Confrontation
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8132102274; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The third and final volume in the series on Communication Processes, Communication, Culture and Confrontation is a bold attempt at breaking conceptual and methodological impasses which stifle communication studies. Departing from established frameworks and dated technological metaphors such as ‘transmission’, the present volume explores and analyses different forms of communication media in relation to the cultural configurations and contending forces that permeate them. Positioned at the interface of culture and communication studies, the discourse in the book engages with multiple voices, bringing together academic scholars and grassroot social animators. Exploring seven different popular cultural forms, such as rituals, songs, narratives, calendar art, pamphlets, and so on, through 18 case studies, it goes on to suggest a complex model of communication. In this framework, cultures cannot be viewed as items exchanged in the hegemonic space of global communication. Cultural configurations display themselves as ‘evolutive’ forms of social communication that weave human beings into collectives and bind these collectives with one another—all permeated with the power parameter. Cultures ‘perform’ viable collectives when they come to be apprehended in a field of contending forces: a milieu of exchange, encounter, confrontation and possibly conflict. This volume will be invaluable for students of communication, culture studies, sociology and journalism. Printed Pages: 504. 029604

Goodbye to Gandhi?: Travels in the New India
Penguin/Viking; New Delhi, India; 2007; 067008168X; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 16 Cms x 23.5 Cms 
Gandhi did not survive even six months after India gained independence. Yet no other Indian in the twentieth century has had the kind of impact on India’s destiny that he had. In more ways than one, Gandhi defined India’s political, social, cultural and moral imagination. In his last years, and certainly after his assassination on 30 January 1948, India set itself on a course which was different from Gandhi’s vision. Bernard Imhasly, anthropologist, journalist and writer, journeys from Imphal to Cyberabad and Bangalore, and from Champaran to Porbandar, looking at a new India keeping Gandhi’s ideas and values in mind. He finds a society where Gandhi is alive but his virulence is missing, a polity which worships him but easily forgets his guiding principles, and a morality which thrives on oppression rather than on the search for truth, a principle Gandhi held paramount. While many of his interlocutors decry Gandhi, there are a surprising number of people for whom he remains a yardstick of their life and work. Goodbye to Gandhi?: Travels in the New India examines how the choices that India made as an independent nation have shaped the country’s politics, its culture and its people. While India acquires a new-found confidence and optimism in its economic future, Bernard Imhasly, in his engaging travels through current-day India, listening for echoes of Gandhi’s voice, finds a cacophony of voices—alluring, exciting and sometimes exasperating.

The Modern Condition of Educational Thought
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2000; 812120688X; Hardcover; New; New; 
This inquiry attempts to address one problem that Teachers hardly ever clarify the meaning of the Knowledge they teach. They are not inclined to have a hard look at the rules for the Construction and use of knowledge. Instead, they prefer to operate with vague but nevertheless fixed ideas about the Nature and the selection of knowledge and thus do not do Justice to a possible analysis of meaning. Too often are they satisfied with 'ordinary' educational thought. Against this, the present inquiry tries to Advocate 'reflective' educational thought by employing a clearer view of essentialist and contextualist concepts used in daily practice of Teaching and learning.Printed Pages: 184. 105976

Education in Ayurveda: A Re-Constructional Analysis
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1992; 8121203996; Hardcover; New; New; 
Ayurveda was a system in Ancient India which had its supreme duty in preventing Diseases and maintaining health, rather than in curing diseases. In this it followed the principle of congruence between content and form, content Meaning a particular Corpus of Knowledge and the Ways of imparting and acquiring it, form meaning life and the forms of life. It was not a special discipline which made Ayurveda preventive but a way of life which enabled people to create conditions for a healthy (and happy) life. If this was true and possible in the past, then we shall think of adopting this principle of congruence between content and form to modern life as well. For this, the author has developed a theoretical Framework in which primary Prevention in its widest Sense takes the centre as a strategy of Health promotion. In this contribution to a Philosophy of education, the Sutra Sthana of the Caraka Samhita, one of the main ayurveda texts, is analysed. Though much emphasis is put on life-long self-education, it is also made clear that a modern Ayurveda Health Education has to become community education in order to Help people perceive their World by conscientisating their situation and by this empower them to create new social circumstances. This education, then, can become an integral part of popular education by, amongst other things, employing P. Freire's concept of Dialogue which cannot exist in the absence of profound Love for the world and humankind.Printed Pages: 228. 105753
