4601 Birgit Abels
The Harmonium in North Indian Music
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8178223090; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
The harmonium holds an ambiguous reputation in India as well as in its "home continent" of Europe. There is an abundance of clear statements made by distinguished Indian musicians, theoreticians and also politicians who time and again would decry the instrument. Rabindranath Tagore's famous description of the harmonium as "that bane of Indian music" is just one example. And yet, the harmonium is arguably the instrument most widely used for accompanying the foremost medium of North Indian classical music, i.e. the human voice. Thus, by all appearances the anxiety about the harmonium's potentially destructive impingement on traditional music, is not shared by the majority of the musicians. This book seeks to understand the complex history of the harmonium in North India, analyse the apparent conflict between musical theory and practice and describe how the instrument is used in musical practice. Is the harmonium an instrument suitable for Indian music? Can it live up to the requirements of Indian music? Can it live up to the requirements of Indian music? These questions pervade the whole book, at the end of which, they will appear in a whole new light.Printed Pages: 154. 102613

Nine Degrees of Justice: New Perspectives on Violence Against Women in India
Zubaan/Atlantic Publishers & Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8189884506; Hardcover; New; New; 
From an early focus on rape, dowry and sati, feminist struggles against violence on women in India have traversed a wide terrain to include issues that were invisible in the1980s. In Nine Degrees of Justice, second- and third-generation feminists share their perceptions on violence against women through a series of thought-provoking essays that establish that justice for women has not even reached double digit figures (hence nine degrees). Has using the law led to justice for women who face violence? What does ?justice? mean for an individual survivor? How can we address violence in public spaces and cyberspace without demonizing either? How do women in armed conflict move from being victims to actors? How can we start to speak about lesbian suicides and violence among women loving women? How do we ensure that women have a ?right to choose? when love is seen as a crime? Is prostitution a form of violence against women? What is the violence of stigma? And who is a ?woman? deserving representation from the women?s movement? Printed Pages: 300. 109523

Mystic Eros (Troubadours and Vaisnava Poets of Medieval India)
Bharatiya Vidya Prakashan; Delhi, India; 2010; 8183900615; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Mystic Eros is designed a cultural document on comparative medievalpoetry, philosophy, religion and esoteric thoughts after anexhaustive analysis of the concepts of Eros and Kama in the Westernand Indian traditions respectively. Eros as longing of thesickening soul in Neoplatonism is metamorphosed into mystic-Eros inthe Middle Ages, and while ascending the various steps of the chainof Eros, the soul experiences a constant oscillation between thesacred and the profane. With the Troubadours of medieval France,Eros is viewed as a binding force that trends to bridge the gapbetween sense and spirit within the periphery of country love(amour courtois)-a powerful plea for refined sensuality. Passion,ofter treated by preachers and theologians a a notorious element,is viewed as a pure and purifying emotion by the Troubadours. Lyingthe Troubadours, the Buddhist-Tantric-Sahajiya Vaisnava poetsmetamorphosed kama into prema and devised an eleborateerotic-mystic ritual of ragasadhana (culture of love). TheTroubadour technique of donnoi deification of courtly lady (domna)and esoteric progresssion (Eros-Amor-Jois) has been finallyjuxtaposed with the Vaisnavite ladder of kama-prema-maha-sukhaafter a comparative analysis of the lyrics of Trobadours andVaisnava poets of medieval India.Printed Pages: 292. 103815

4612 Bishwanath Ghosh
Chai, Chai: Travels in Places Where You Stop but Never Get Off
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789380032863; Softcover; New; 
Biswanath Ghosh paints an amazing and mystical picture in this book, where he starts his journey from the Itarsi Station, Madhya Pradesh. Chai, Chai: Travels in Places Where You Stop But Never Get Off allows the reader to join the author-narrator while he experiences new places and faces. The beautiful sun, the rich cultural history and the people are all rendered with humor and love. One can almost feel the narrator going through the little lanes in Kanpur and then end up in Madras.Whether one is drinking tea at a local café or sitting with numerous people in a local train, Ghosh breathes life into every moment. While speculating on life’s little moments, the author also realizes the amount of hours spent in waiting at railway junctions. The destinations are not just stations and stops for trains to drop commuters off. They represent a different life and a new adventure everyday. There are little towns that people have never heard of which Ghosh talks extensively about such as Shoranpur, Arakkonam, Itarsi, Jhansi and Mughal Sarai. What makes this work unique is that these places are described in terms of the people encountered. Trains play an important role in bringing people from all parts of the country and all walks of life together. This is where the true story lies.Ghosh enriches this story with various descriptions and personal insights. The book is witty, humorous and helps rediscover those areas of India which most have forgotten about due to commercial tourism. No matter how obscure a town maybe, it still holds a rich cultural history which Ghosh describes with avid details. 109542

Of the People: Essays on Indian Popular Culture
Chronicle Books; New Delhi, India; 2006; 8180280276; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Why is all of India so obsessed with cricket and what are the reasons for the fall of hockey from its Olympian height and the decline of football? What explains the continuing convention of singing and dancing in Hindi films? Why has everything desi suddenly become fashionable and hip? This collection of essays is based on the premise that such questions about Indian popular culture need to be examined if we are to make sense of the twenty-first century India. Following the growth of cable television, the rise of new technologies and the emergence of a culture of consumption; the products of contemporary culture have come to play an increasingly important role in shaping some Indian social practices. The book argues that the incredible draw of cricket can be understood in terms of a postcolonial anxiety about “catching up” with the West; the ubiquitous song-dance in Bollywood film must be seen not as escapist fare but rather as a device that enables the articulation of modernity; the quest for identity on part of the Indian diaspora has contributed to the rise of a global desi culture. What these and other instances demonstrate is that, far from being mindless diversion, popular culture serves as both a crucible and an agent for the formation of national consciousness and social identity. As the popular goes, so goes the nation. Printed Pages: 252. 031556

Channeling Cultures: Television Studies from India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2014; 0198092059; Hardcover; New; New; 
Television plays a very important role in constructing and presenting images of Indian modernity. Channeling Cultures brings together scholars from various disciplines to locate television within multiple histories of the nation as well as current trajectories in global culture and politics. Building on analytical frameworks of postcoloniality, citizenship, democracy, development, globalization and consumerism, this volume addresses questions in televisual form, genre, identity, politics, affect, gender, body and sexuality, and explores regional, national, and global itineraries of Indian television. Focusing on the genres of news, reality show, and soap opera, the book interrogates some of the standard assumptions of television studies and more broadly global media studies. It provides fresh perspectives on the transition of Indian television from a state monopoly to a market-driven system and liberalization`s nuanced relationships with Indian media in general. The arguments invite the reader to critically engage with many theoretical perspectives ranging from political economy to cultural studies that energize the field of research on Indian television. The book will interest all those looking to critically engage with television, media theory, and popular culture. Printed Pages: 344. 110227

Tribal Myths and Legends of Orissa (The Story of Origins)
Pratibha Prakashan; Delhi, India; 2005; 8177021001; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The myths and legends presented here are all new field collections. The purpose of the book is twofold. First it will try to correct the popular urban belief or the belief of the educated elitist belief to be exact that our tribal people are ignorant uneducated and uncultured and that the little culture etc. they have is the gift of the mainstream civilization. And second it will attempt to bring out the richness of tribal culture carried in their myths and legends and to establish its antiquity in the context of the prime civilizations of the world the Mesopotamian the Babylonian the Hindu the Egyptian the Greek and the Judeo Christian. The book introduces a competitive reading to evaluate degrees of being civilized if such things are possible. Finally it examines myths as a fossil field which is layered and in which ancient facts are trapped and held as fossils. The book suggests ways of identifying recovering and studying these fossils in order to construct the tribe's prehistory and ethos. Printed Pages: 316. 101355

The glacial striae have been rubbed off from the fluted surfaces at most sites and replaced by comparatively deep and narrow erosion marks. Printed Pages: 39. 115261

This is a book about the erotic art of Nepal in its various forms. It is also a book about the Kathmandu valley, its strange, mysterious, magical and enchanting powers. Whether we speak of the odd-looking, carved stone representations at Pashupatinath, or the colourful wooden imagery that is found on many of the temples of the valley, you are sure to be completely surprised in more ways than one. * What do these exotic and erotic art forms really represent? * Why have such images been placed on the external structure of so many sacred temples? * Who do these erotic depictions serve? This book goes a long way to providing an insight into these questions. It gives us glimpses of life depicted as explicitly as it may without hurting the sentiments of more conservative societies. "this 'Naughtiness' of Nepalese art may send blushes to the furthest periphery of your senses. If you like your art to be saucy, sexy and straight to the point, read on.

Beyond the Robe
Power House Book/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1576876381; Hardcover; New; New; 
Beyond the Robe tells the story of the Science for Monks program and what it reveals about the larger role Tibetan Buddhist monks and nuns can play in their monasteries, in their communities, and in the world at large. Science for Monks represents the first time in the 1,500-year history of Tibetan Buddhism that Western science is being taught as part of the monastic curriculum. Beyond the Robe is a collection of essays containing the first insights and observations that have come out of that historic effort. The heart of the book is the perspectives of the monks and nuns themselves as well as reflections from the scientists who teach the workshops. The story of the monks’ journey through science to leadership is told by many contributors. More than 30 people have contributed essays, quotes, and photographs. Bobby Sager embraces his role as a convener of their voices and uses his photography to draw the reader into the dialogue. Printed Pages: 312. 113103

Karma and the Rebirth of Consciousness
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2006; 8121511003; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This book is the first volume of a series entitled Unveiling the Esoteric in Buddhism that aims to reform many aspects of Buddhist heuristics and gnoseology. In this volume the nature of the karma that governs all phenomenal appearances in the three worlds of the samsara is examined. From the basic premises the thesis proceeds logically to expound the intricacies of the mode of manifestation of all aspects of this basic law. Many traditional beliefs are simplified "truth" that had their genesis in the infancy of humanity's ability to logically enquire. The Buddha utilised a similar primitive belief system concerning karma without any alteration. The simplified elementary beliefs are all that have been perpetuated, and Buddhist have never really queried inherently flawed logic, such as the belief of transmigration of human consciousness into the animal Kingdom after death. They have asserted a near adamantine faith in the writings of those that have simply reiterated the exoteric teachings. The text presents a series of syllogisms rectifying the flaws, bringing to light part of the Buddha's own agenda for the education of humanity. Printed Pages: 308. 014449

In 1988-89 he published a series of books (The Revelation in three volumes and Divine Causation) concerned with explaining various esoteric subjects, such as the teachings of karma and rebirth that is found in the Christian Bible, as well as the nature of the path to liberation by following the curricula of the Council (on Hierarchy) of Bodhisattvas. In 1996 he gained a degree in science from the University of Western Sydney. He is currently teaching at the Maitreya Sangha Dharma Centre (near Sydney), which he founded. Printed Pages: 151. 039861

Servant Master Mistress
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8186939237; First Edition; Paperback; New; 8.5 x 5.5 Inches 
The Sanjanas had planned to enjoy the tiger cub and surrender the adult to the zoo, but no plan had been made for the adolescent. The family is breakfasting in the compound of their bungalow when the cub gets its first taste of blood from a cut on Sohrab Sanjana’s hand. Also in attendance are Daisy (Sohrab’s English wife, married when she was stranded by World War II in India); Rustom (Sohrab’s brother, infatuated by Daisy, challenging his brother for her affection); Dolly (their mother, afraid the rivalry between her sons may erupt into violence echoing the rivalry between two brothers whom she had married in succession); and Savak (Dolly’s husband, still paying the price for his own infatuation thirty years earlier). Their story spans the years from 1910 to 1945, encompassing scenes in which a yogi’s ‘spirituality’ is exposed by a monkey, a ten-year-old English girl seduces an eight-year-old Indian boy, and a young Englishwoman meets her first lover at the Silver Jubilee of George V. A family secret lies at the heart of the story, but the periphery is no less thrilling: two lovers escape from Stalin’s Soviet Union to India and a soldier meets with tragedy during the Kut-al-amara campaign of the Great War in Mesopotamia.

A Woman Madly in Love
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8174363076; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 8.5 x 5.5 Inches National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi 
Farida Cooper is too shocked by her husband's treachery even to talk about it, but in hiding her shame succeeds only in denying the damage to herself and making casualties of others, among them an infatuated seventeen-year-old boy. Farida is vivacious, voluptuous, intelligent, and rich, not to mention spoiled, selfish, and talented (she paints, writes novels, plays the piano), but her life is hardly as rosy as the appearance suggests. Her father, too wealthy to care what others think, makes a hobby of chasing women. Her mother grows rigid and unloving in consequence. Farida's saving grace is her Kaki with whom she lives after her sixth birthday, but this also heightens the sense of her parents' indifference, and she learns to show nothing of her feelings. Instead, her feelings erupt later in a series of disastrous choices. Her story shuttles between Bombay and Chicago, spanning the years from World War II to the Eighties, illuminating along the way themes of love and marriage, feminism and friendship, art and academia.

Khyal: Creativity within North India’s Classical Music Tradition
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8121507650; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
This book is a study of khyal, the genre of North Indian classical music which has dominated in performances by highly trained vocalists for at least the past 150 years. It is also a study of cultural history. Spanning as it does a good portion of the periods of the British raj in India, the struggle for independence, and the flourishing of India as a republic, the history of khyal and of khyal singers is a story of generous patronage by native princes, of the loss of this patronage when courts were dissolved, and of the resilience of musicians in adjusting to the vicissitudes of contemporary artistic life. In performing khyal, the singer presents a brief composition, and then improvises from twenty to forty minutes according to certain guidelines. One chapter of this book describes the compositions, the modal and metric materials, and the improvisational guidelines utilized by the khyal singers. Descriptions are illustrated with musical examples in transcription (in Western notation and also in a modified Indian notation) and on accompanying CDs. Because khyal was developed by musicians employed at courts scattered throughout North India, the manner of performing it varies among different groups of musicians (gharanas). Bonnie Wade considers six major group traditions—Gwalior, Agra, Sahaswan/Rampur, Alladiya Khan, Kirana, and Patiala—tracing the personal histories of singers (both members of lineages and other disciples), presenting the statements made in Indian sources about their musical styles, and considering those statements through analysis of recorded performances by leading musicians of recent decades. Since individual artistic achievement is so important among musicians in the Hindustani tradition, and in the development and performance of khyal, this perspective is also considered. The book contains an extensive bibliography and discography, as well as illustrations of khyal in performance, genealogical charts, and maps. It also has 2 Audio CDs. Printed Pages: 337 with 2 Audio CDs. 039771

The Illustrated History of Indian Cricket
Lustre Press/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174364498; Hardcover; New; New; 
Cricket has been the binding spirit for a fractious India; it has been opium and adrenalin, valium and vitamin. It has been a vehicle for social mobility and has helped promote tolerance and secularism. The story of Indian cricket is the story of a society, a tapestry woven as a permanent work in progress by a nation in search of a definition. This special updated edition of The Illustrated History of Indian Cricket is an attempt to tell that story, through pictures, many of which have not been seen in public before. The story of the highs and lows of Indian cricket, with all its oddities and eccentricities - how we reinvented a game and found ourselves reflected in it. A mine of information for sports buffs, connoisseurs and academicians alike, the book is a frame-by-frame unfolding of an institution whose history is a fascinating tale of passion, drama, intrigue, scandal, agony and excitement spread over a century. All the brightest stars of Indian cricket can be found here, from Ranji and C K Nayudu to Vijay Merchant and Sunil Gavaskar; and from Kapil Dev and Sachin Tendulkar to Saurav Ganguly and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Every major milestone along the journey is covered, from reducing England to 19-3 in India's very first Test at Lords in 1932, to the famous victories against West Indies and England in 1971; and from winning the 1983 World Cup to repeating the performance at the inaugural T20 World Cup in South Africa in 2007. It describes how innovations like the IPL have contributed to the game's popularity and financial fortunes, and ends with the prophecy that come March 2010 when the IPL returns to India, the global constituency cultivated in 2009 will help make the tournament a truly global Indian export - India's only truly international sporting brand.
