4701 Bruno Dagens (Tr.)
Mayamata: An Indian Treatise on Housing Architecture and Iconography
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2017; 8178224976; Softcover; New; 
The Mayamata is a Vastusastra, that is to says a ’treatise on dwelling and as such it deals with all the facets of gods’ temple dwellings, from the choice of a site to the iconography of temple walls. It contains many precise descriptions of villages and towns as of temples, houses, mansions and palaces. It gives indications for the selection of a proper orientation, of right dimension and of appropriate building materials. It intends to be a manual for the architect and a guide-book for the layman. Well thought of by the traditional architects (sthapati-s) of South India, this treatise is of interest at a time when technical traditions, in all fields are being scrutinized for their possible modern application. The Mayamata has so for been translated into Tamil and into French. The present English version is based upon the edition, with French trans-lation, previously published by Dr. Bruno Dagens in the Publication Series of the French Institute of Indology (Pon-dicherry).

4702 Bryan J. Cuevas & Jacqueline I. Stone (Eds)
The Buddhist Dead: Practices, Disources, Representations
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8120834240; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In its teachings, practices, and institutions, Buddhism in its varied Asian forms has been-and continues to be-centrally concerned with death and the dead. Yet surprisingly "death in Buddhism" has received little sustained scholarly attention. The Buddhist Dead offers the first comparative investigation of this topic across the major Buddhist cultures of India, Sri Lanka, China, Japan, Tibet, and Burma. Its individual essays, representing a range of methods, shed light on a rich array of traditional Buddhist practices for the dead and dying; the sophisticated but often paradoxical discourses about death ad the dead in Buddhist texts; and the varied representations of the dead and the afterlife found in Buddhist funerary art and popular literature. The paradigmatic figure of the historical buddha, his death, the symbolism of his funeral, and his relationship to the impurity of the dead are treated in the opening essays by John S. Strong and Gregory Schopen. The deaths of later remarkable adepts, following the Buddha's model, and their significance for Buddhist communities are investigated by Koichi Shinohara, Jacqueline I. Stone, Raoul Birnbaum, and Kurtis R. Schaeffer. A dramatic, often controversial category of exemplary death, that of "giving up the body" or Buddhist suicide, is examined by James Benn and D. Max Moerman. Moving from celebrated masters to ordinary practitioners and devotees, Bryan J. Cuevas, John Clifford Holt, and Matthew T. Kapstein take up the subject of the "ordinary dead" and the intimate relations that often persist between them and those still living, while Hank Glassman, Mark Rowe, and Jason A. Carbine shed light on Buddhist funerary practices and address the physical and social locations of the Buddhist dead.Printed Pages: 401. 102341

4719 Bullhe Singh (Author) & Christopher Shackle (Ed. & Tr.)
Sufi Lyrics
Harvard University Press/IBD; Noida, India; 2015; 067442784X; Softcover; New; 13 x 20 Cm 
The poetry of Bullhe Shah (d. 1758) is considered one of the glories of premodern Punjabi literature. Born in Uch, Punjab, in present-day Pakistan, Bullhe Shah drew profoundly upon Sufi mysticism in his writings. His lyrics, famous for their vivid style and outspoken denunciation of artificial religious divisions, have long been held in affection by Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs and they continue to win audiences today across national boundaries and in the global Punjabi diaspora. Indeed, many young people in South Asia are already acquainted-albeit unknowingly at times-with the iconic eighteenth-century Punjabi poets words through popular musical genres of the twenty-first century.The striking new translation in English is presented alongside the Punjabi text, in the Gurmukhi script, re-edited on the basis of the best modern Pakistani and Indian editions. Bullhe Shahs Sufi Lyrics thus offers at once the most complete and most approachable version of this great poets works yet available.The Murty classical library of India makes available original texts and modern English translations of the masterpieces of literature and thought from across the whole spectrum of Indic languages over the past two millennia in the most authoritative and accessible formats on offer anywhere.

Essays on South India
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1997; 812150760X; Reprint; Cloth; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The essays of this volume were first presented to a conference of South Indian specialists convened at the University of Wisconsin on 7-9 April 1970. This was the second such conference of the Society for South Indian Studies, the first having met at the University of Texas on 5-7 December 1968, from which came a valuable set of essays entitled Symposium on Dravidian Civilization (1971), edited by Andree F. Sjoberg. Robert E. Frykenberg, Department of History, University of Wisconsin, the convenor of the second SSIS conference, intended that the papers and discussion should be a comprehensive "stock-taking" of scholarship on South India. Each of the scholars invited to present papers was specifically asked to make such an assessment in the field of his or her competence and was also asked to suggest potentially useful lines of future research in the light of that assessment. The scope of the essays is broad; they reflect the range of interests and scholarship of Americans in South India. And, though each of the writers accepted the charge of Professor Frykenberg to survey some portion of the totality of knowledge of South Indian society, culture, and history, some essays provide new and sometimes startling formulations. This was an unexpected dividend of the conference. Printed Pages: 220. 030593

The Vimalakirti Sutra (Buddhist Tradition Series)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8120816722; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Vimalakirti Sutra, one of the most influential works of the Mahayana Buddhist canon, is of particular importance in the Ch'an or Zen sect. Originally written in sanskrit, probably in the first century C.E., it claims to record events of more than four hundred years earlier. Noted for its eloquent, orderly exposition of the basic tenets of Mahayana, the text is also remarkable for the liveliness of its episodes and frequent touches of humor, rarities in a religious work of this type. The Vimalakirti Sutra is unusual in that its central figure is not a Buddha or Buddhas, but a wealthy townsman, Vimalakirti, who epitomizes the ideal lay believer. For this reason, and because of the Sutra's enduring literary appeal, it has been particularly popular among lay Buddhists in China, Japan, and the other Asian countries where Mahayana doctrines prevail, and has exercised a marked influence on literature and art. Beautifully translated by Burton Watson from the Chinese version of Kumarajiva, The Vimalakirti Sutra is the first-ever translation into englishfrom the popular Chinese version. Including notes to the translation and a glossary, as well as a brief history of early. Buddhism and an introduction to the doctrine of nondualism-a key tenet in Mahayana thought -this translation will delight not only those familiar with the text but also a new generation of readers.Printed Pages: 159. 102429

Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 0198094884; Hardcover; New; New; 
For long, the fight against insurgency has been seen mainly as a domain of military forces, and not of the police. The vast literature on counterinsurgency, both historical and contemporary, therefore, tends to focus solely on combat strategies, organizational issues, and politico-military relations. However, national leaders and governments, in a variety of settings, are beginning to grasp the important role played by a neutral, competent, and reliable police force in quelling insurgencies. But there remains an inexplicable dearth of scholarship on this dimension of internal security. This volume, part of the Oxford International Relations in South Asia series, corrects this imbalance, bringing together a series of case studies from Africa, the Middle East, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. It examines the conditions in which police forces have either succeeded or failed in contributing to the resolution of an insurgency situation in a particular society. Each study presents the history of the specific insurgency, the attempts made and reform measures undertaken by the police force to confront it, and the efficacy of those measures, thereby offering insights into a geographically and socially diverse typology of insurgency and counterinsurgency operations from across the world.

The Srikara Bhashya: Being the Virasaiva Commentary on the Vedanta-Sutra , 2 Vols
Aditya Prakashan; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8188643009; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
"Though the existence of Sripatipanditacharya's Bhashya on the Vedanta Sutras of Badarayana has been long known, it has not so far been available in print. An incomplete Telugu edition was published many years ago but this is the first time the whole text is offered in the Devanagari script. The circumstances under which the edition has been undertaken have been set out at some length in the introduction. "The work is published in two volumes, the first being devoted to the introduction in English and the second to the text, with appendices. "Volume I and contains preface, table of contents and introduction. In translating passages, clearness has been preferred to elegance. Philosophical terms have been rendered on an uniform basis, all attempts at subtlety being avoided. Well-known philosophical terms have, however, been retained. The use of Sanskrit terms and phrases which have acquired a definite significance, has more than mere utility to commend it. While it is difficult to find exact English equivalents for them, their frequent use is likely in the long run to popularise Indian thought in the west. Footnotes have been given chiefly with a view to elucidate the text or the Sruti passages quoted. " Volume 2 contains the Text of the Commentary of Sripatipanditacharya on the Vedanta Sutras. The several appendices included in it will, it is hoped, prove useful to readers. Special attention may perhaps be invited to certain of these appendices which furnish a comparative idea of the division of the work into Adhikaranas and Sutras by certain.

Laghudharmaprakasika (A Study with Sanskrit Text)
New Bharatiya Book Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8187418885; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Laghudharmaprakasika satisfies the characteristics of a Smrti or Dharma Sastra. In twelve chapters it deals with the origin of the four stages of life, the sixteen customary rites of purification, the duties of a king, the duties of women and allied topics. The work has drawn upon earlier works like Manusmrti and Yajnavalkyasmrti, though it does not quote stanza from them. The mode of punishment for adultery is novel in that a proper trial by authorities well-versed in Vedic lore is enjoined to establish the guilt beyond doubt. It has the approval of the king since the presence of his representative is a must for the trial called Smartavicara which was in vogue upto the beginning of the twentieth century AD.The peculiar customs enumerated here are a part of the life of the people of Kerala even at present. The work supplies a mine of information to a historian since it sheds much light on the history, culture, Sociology and Anthropology and allied fields.Printed Pages: 189. 104059

Urban Governance in India
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789351281832; Hardcover; New; New; 
The importance of efficient urban governance needs no elaboration in an increasingly urbanising world. Cities with high population densities throw significant challenges of transportation, safety, urban revitalisation, social inclusion and cohesion, environmental protection, water, air, energy, sanitation and climate changes which will magnify in the near future if not properly addressed now. These socio-economic changes necessitate augmentation of urban finances for investment in well-planned urban development and to bring about reforms in governance to enforce efficient urban governance at all levels to cater to the needs of urbanites and to make cities inclusive, congestion-free, safe, resilient and sustainable in which all people have access to basic services, housing and mobility. The urban local governance structures, mechanism and arrangements should aim at facilitating the adoption and implementation of successful policies to meet the challenges of sustainable, safe and equitable urbanisation. This book discusses measures to stimulate revitalisation and foster better economic and social development through developing cooperation mechanism between local and national governments so that the challenges of urbanisation can be best utilised as opportunities of innovation, economic growth and employment.

Housing, Rural Poor and their Living Conditions
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1987; 8121200881; Hardcover; New; New; 
The main theme of the book deals with the shortage of Housing among the lower Income Groups and the Poor besides those without a house in Rural areas. The authors view that a pragmatic planning will Help in Meeting the challenge of housing need in rural India. The Cultural History of man viewed house as a place of safety and an important determinant of personal and Family satisfaction. Modern housing includes for more than the living space and shelter. Its Nature and value are determined by the facilities like neighbourhood, access to education, Health amenities, security and availability of community facilities, Employment and so forth. Only very few Societies have been Successful in providing adequate housing. A number of developing Countries have come to recognise the magnitude of the problems and are adopting different strategies for housing and building policy. The main theme of the book which is based on a Research project completed in 1981 at the University of Mysore deals with the shortage of housing among the lower income groups and the poor besides those without a house in rural areas. In rural India housing poses a different problem. There is acute shortage of housing in village. The present shortage is put at twenty million units with an Annual backlog of two million units due to Population growth. An attempt is made by the authors to analyse the efforts of one of the Governmental Measures to the benefit of rural houseless population in Karnataka, one of the states of the Indian union. Much of the conclusions are based on the implementation of the Peoples (Janata) housing scheme during 1970s. The findings are revealing. The socio-political situation in rural areas of the state militates against the welfare schemes undertaken to the good of the poor and the needy. Nearly seventeen per cent of the village residents are without a place of their own to live. Plan allocation towards rural housing are meager. Land Reforms and land ceiling Laws are simply not helpful in tackling the problems effectively. Interestingly the state government has taken initiative through various schemes to house the poor and houseless with priorities and yearly targets. The strategy is working fairly well. The authors view that with pragmatic planning it would go a long way in meeting the challenge of housing need in village India.Printed Pages: 144. 105673

Samudra Manthan: Sino-Indian Rivalry in the Indo-Pacific
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2013; 0198092334; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Rising China and emerging India are becoming major maritime powers. Beijing and Delhi arebuilding powerful blue water navies to secure their vital interests far beyond their immediate shores. Beijing is looking beyond the Pacific to seek military access and special political relationships in the Indian Ocean. Delhi, in turn, is deepening its security partnerships with China’s neighbours in the Pacific. As the naval footprints of China and India overlap, their maritime competition has begun to roil the waters of the Indo-Pacific, the vast littoral stretching from Africa to Australasia. Invoking a tale from Hindu mythology—‘Samudra Manthan’—C. Raja Mohan tells the story of Sino Indian rivalry spilling over from the Great Himalayas into the Indian and Pacific Oceans. He examines the prospects for reducing Sino-Indian mistrust in Asia’s waters and expanding their maritime security cooperation. The unfolding of Sino-Indian rivalry inevitably draws in the United States, until now the dominant power in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Despite the massive differences in the current naval capabilities of China, India, and the United States, the three countries are locked in a triangular dynamic that is shaping the strategic future of the Indo-Pacific.

Living Traditions of Natyasastra
New Bharatiya Book Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2002; 818741846X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Most of the papers collected in the present volume have a common theme : they deal with the amazing persistence and continuity of the Natyasastra tradition even in the contemporary theatre. Most of the papers were originally presented in a U.G.C. Seminar on "Living Traditions of Natyasastra in India" conducted by the Department of Sanskrit, University of Calicut in November, 1995. A Few items had to be included to the volume to cover areas left out in the Seminar. There are some other papers also which deal with peripheral problems related to Natysastra tradition, especially its text and meaning.The term contemporary theatre is used in the present Context in a broad sense to include not only classical art forms like Kathakali and Kutiyattam, but even modern experimental theatre. Natyasastra, ascribed to the mythical Bharata, is encyclopaedic in its scope and range. Its authorship, date, and even textual details may be problematic. But there can be no denying of the fact that it represents an Indian attempt to give shape to its own theatrical philosophy which was never lost sight of until the advent of modernity ushered in by colonialism. Hence, we just cannot imagine a genuine Indian theater without a reference to the broad theoritical framework outlined in this extra-ordinarily rich store-house of indigenous theatrical knowledge. Regional art forms like Kutiyattam, Kathakali, Krisnanattam, Yaksagana, Bharatanatyam or even folk forms like the Yatra of Bengal are tied to the Natyasastra through an umbilical chord. For that matter, even modern experimental theatre makes use of the stagecraft of Bharata and concepts like that of the Sutradhara.Printed Pages: 200 with 16 Plates. 104061

Vyakiviveka: A Study
New Bharatiya Book Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2003; 818741877X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The present work aims at an analytical and interpretive study of Vyaktiviveka, a Great Classic in Sanskrit poetics written by Mahimabhatta, the 12th Century Kashmiri poetician. Mahimabhatta is famous in Indian poetics as the doughty polemist logician who endeavored hard to divest Anandavardhana's Dhvani theory of its halo of mystery. His thought is of astounding originality and depth. In his masterly exposition, Professor Rajendran analyses the intricate philosophical and linguistic questions raised by The Author in all their ramifications and puts the work in proper perspective. For the first time, Vyaktiviveka is here treated as an original work propounding its own philosophy rather than a polemical text simply criticizing Anandavardhana's dhvani doctrine. Professor Rajendran also explores fascinating areas like Mahimabhatta's orientation to various philosophical systems, especially medieval Buddhistic logic. Translations of some key passages of Vyaktiviveka are also appended to the work.Printed Pages: 303. 104125

Demonetisation and Black Money
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789386392619; Softcover; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
On 8 November 2016, India took the dramatic and unprecedented step of demonetising its high denomination Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes in an effort to ‘fight black money, eliminate counterfeit notes and stop terror funding’. The decision has prompted fierce and widespread debate. While proponents and opponents have argued on specific aspects of the policy, a holistic view has been absent from the debate.This timely book takes a close look at the various facets of the demonetisation story. What was the rationale for Demonetisation 2016? Can it stamp out black money as promised? Were there other options, which would have avoided causing immense grief to countless Indians? What next after demonetisation?The book also explores the drive to digitalisation of payments which post-demonetisation has emerged as an important point on the agenda of the government. This book has been written for every Indian—from the policymaker who would like to understand the lessons to be learnt from this exercise, to the scholar who wishes to understand the whys and whereof, to the citizen, who, bewildered by the turn of events, wants to know if the inconvenience that Demonetisation 2016 has caused will help the nation in any way.
