6504 Daya Krishna; with a New Introduction By Mrinal Miri
The Nature of Philosophy
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8189963066; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The Nature of Philosophy is a reprint of the very first book published by Daya Krishna. It is based on his doctoral work, completed in 1951 in the Department of Philosophy of Delhi University. The book is a critical examination of the presuppositions of the philosophical enterprise; it considers with admirable clarity and critical acumen diverse styles and genres of philosophical reflection: analysis, phenomenology, existentialism, and other historical modes of doing philosophy. Daya Krishna moves from one mode to another with great facility and seamless ease. Although written more than fifty years ago, the book is an impressive example of philosophical modernity. The present reprinted version consists of the original twelve chapters and has an Introduction by Mrinal Miri as well as a Bibliography and an Index. The book is an outstanding contribution in philosophy and would be beneficial to scholars of various areas of philosophy, humanities, social and the natural sciences. Printed Pages: 360. 028831

6506 Daya Mukherjee
Subhas Chandra Bose: Accelerator of India's Independence
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1997; 8121205662; Hardcover; New; New; 
Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose was a freedom fighter with a difference. He was a radical, a revolutionary and, above all, a missionary, whose only mission in life was to secure India's freedom, for which he lived and died. The Means he applied raised conventional eyebrows the were certainly unorthodox and his forthright opinions and clash of Views with Mahatma Gandhi ultimately led to his Alienation from the Congress mainstream, which found his approach a Little too militant.Unfazed, even though he was sidelined and expelled from the Congress, Bose continued his struggle from abroad, trying to harness the Military powers of that time Germany and Japan to fight against British imperialism. Single-handedly, he carried on the propaganda for India's independence across Europe and later in South-East Asia, exposing to the World the true state of affairs in his enslaved motherland. A little-conceded fact is that it was ultimately Bose and his INA who put the final pressure on the British Government to hasten the transfer of power, by sparking off the Naval Mutiny which convinced the British like nothing else could that the days of the Raj were well and truly over.This book endeavours to portray and highlight Subhas Chandra Bose in the light of this single most important contribution of his to the national freedom struggle.Printed Pages: 306. 105844

Rural Politics in India: Political Stratification and Governance in West Bengal
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2013; 1107042356; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book discusses the forms and dynamics of political processes in rural India with a special emphasis on West Bengal the nation’s fourth-most populous state. West Bengal’s political distinction stems from its long legacy of a Left-led coalition government for more than thirty years and its land reform initiatives. The book closely looks at how people from different castes religions and genders represent themselves in local governments political parties and in the social movements in West Bengal. At the same time it addresses some important questions: Is there any new pattern of politics emerging at the margins? How does this pattern of politics correspond with the current discourse of governance? Using ethnographic techniques it claims to chart new territories by not only examining how rural people see the state but also conceiving the context by comparing the available theoretical frameworks put forward to explain the political dynamics of rural India.Printed Pages: 289. 101463

6509 Dayal N. Harjani
Kabir Speaks
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 812460813X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Sant Kabir was a great mystic and poet of the Bhakti era in India. His dohas (couplets) reverberated the consciousness of both the Hindu and Muslim populace alike, and helped in mitigating the superstitions and hypocrisies extant in the society during the time of Sant Kabir. Through his devotion-inspiring dohas, this secular poet rejuvenated the dormant spirituality of the people of his time. This unique book, a compilation of 300 original dohas of Sant Kabãr that has been translated into English with a perfect rhyme and an erudite provision of elucidation, following each couplet, addresses the varied aspects of human life and behaviour, and poses challenges to the established belief and social systems of his time. By interpreting these rhyming dohas, which are permeated with devotion, surrender, love, good conduct and satsang, while reminding people of good social behaviour, charity, vision, control on lust, among many core aspects of life, the author makes a sincere effort to give out the message of Kabir to every reader, deciphering it in simple English. This enables the new generation to understand, grasp and imbibe social, ethical and spiritual values, and empower themselves to face many challenges that may circumvent them in their day-to-day life. The most outstanding feature of the book is that the author painstakingly tried to bring out the rhyme in translation of both the lines of each couplet. Printed Pages: 215. 100313

An Introduction to the Advaita Saiva Philosophy of Kashmir
Indica Books; Varanasi, India; 2009; 8186569898; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The concept of purnahamta (pure I-experience) symbolizing the fullness-nature of the Supreme Experient, i.e. Siva pramata different from the ego-experience ahamkara of the limited embodied beings, has been explained in this book in esoteric terms as it marks a unique contribution of Kashmir Saivism to Indian philosophical thought. The Advaita Saivas describe the nature of the Supreme Reality, one without a second, in different ways namely, as Caitanya or Samvidas an abstract metaphysical principle (nirakara tattva) as well as Parama Siva and Paramesvara possessing a form (sakara Being). They also describe the Supreme Reality as the transcendent Absolute (anuttara) and at the same time as all-pervasive Reality (visvatmaka).Printed Pages: 180. 101265

Kalidas Bhattacharyya: (The Builders of Indian Philosophy Series Gen. Ed. R. Balasubramanian)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8121510767; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Among the academic philosophers who built up that edifice of contemporary Indian philosophy, Kalidas Bhattacharyya holds a unique position in respect of originality as well as breadth of creative thinking. Joining critical analysis and methodology with constructive insights, he introduced an in-depth comparative approach in interpreting the Indian philosophical tradition, while offering a framework of metaphysics on fresh grounds. The present author, in this study of Bhattacharyya’s subtle and wide-ranging thought from a close quarter, highlights its major strands and traces the course of its development in its different phases. The distinctive character of his philosophizing is brought into focus, while at the same time interpreting the significance and relevance of Bhattacharyya’s philosophical contribution for the present-day thinking and culture. The work combines sympathetic understanding with critical analysis in presenting Kalidas Bhattacharyya in the perspective of a total philosopher of his generation, and for generations to follow.

Theories of Illusion in Indian Philosophy
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8124608296; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Every school of Indian philosophy has prescribed its own ways to obliterate human sufferings in the best possible manner. More or less each of them has pointed out that the root cause of sufferings is false cognition of human being about the world and its objects. Only true cognition can eliminate the false one and like the destruction of a series in a chain, the sufferings will be automatically demolished at a point of time. Hence it is necessary to know the nature as well as the characteristics of false cognition. The term illusion is used to denote false cognition according to Indian philosophy. So it may or may not have similarities with the views of Western thought. Each major school of Indian philosophy has analysed the theory of illusion from its metaphysical as well as epistemological standpoint. As a result, major theories — Samkhya-Yoga, Buddhist, Nyaya, Mimamsa and Vedanta — regarding illusion (popularly known as Khyativada) and many more minor theories have originated.This volume thus extensively analyses how these schools have criticized their opponents’ standpoint to establish their own view, making it an interesting reading for everyone, be it a general reader, a student or a scholar in a simple and easy to understand format and language.

The WTO Deadlocked: Understanding the Dynamics of International Trade
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0761936068; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book analyses the contemporary state of affairs at the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and India`s negotiating agenda at its various forums. The WTO is important for all the countries as more than 96 per cent of world trade is controlled by bodies affiliated to it. This book identifies areas in the WTO agreements that require systematic reforms. It also discusses the negotiating history of GATT/WTO, especially after the conclusion of the WTO negotiations in 1995, while not overlooking the failures of the Seattle Ministerial and Doha negotiations. It delves into the rights and interests of different interest-groups within the WTO. Many WTO members nowadays believe that bilateral and regional trade agreements are the only ways to counter the problems involved with multilateral negotiations at the WTO. Concerned about this, the WTO has recently set up a committee to look into the increase in regional trade agreements and free trade areas. This book argues for multilateralism and therefore, a stronger WTO as a rule-based organisation. This is an opportune time for WTO members to examine what is at stake and reconsider their positions. In this context, the book adds considerable value and will be of immense help to Indian negotiators and the industry. It will equally interest those involved in research in the fields of Economics, Politics and Sociology. Printed Pages: 352. 028559

Can You Teach a Zebra Some Algebra?
Wisdom Tree; New Delhi, India; 8183283713; Softcover; New; 
This book asks what seems like a silly question—can you teach a zebra some algebra? You may in turn ask—what kind of a question is that? How can one teach algebra to a zebra? However, that is exactly what the education system that we have inherited is attempting to do. Teachers go on to teach a subject with very little knowledge of the real subject—the student. Our schools remind us of the story of a sports school for animals. Here the teacher is employed to train animals to compete for the Animal Olympics. The teacher looks at a rabbit and teaches it to fly. Then he gets hold of an eagle and forces the bird to run. The elephant is asked to swim and the tortoise is advised to practice a high jump. Finally, after fifteen years of training is over, the duck is declared the Olympic champion. Why? The duck can do a little bit of hopping, flying, jumping and swimming—a jack of all trades and master of none. Think of what’s happening in our schools today. Students, like the duck in the story are asked to do a bit of everything with no deep knowledge of anything. Yet, true education is about achieving mastery—it is about perfecting ourselves as a species. Each one of us was created in our unique human shape and form. We were not mass manufactured in a factory. Our mission in life is therefore to create and to give birth to our true genius—something that we are born to do.Printed Pages: 168. 106745

The Class Act: Learn. Teach. Be.
Wisdom Tree; New Delhi, India; 818328373X; Hardcover; New; New; 
Every Chandragupta needs a Chanakya. Why? We all need our missing halves to fulfill us. The day needs the night to refresh itself through sleep. The night needs the day to awaken to the world of new possibilities. When you are immature, you want maturity to be by your side. When you are too mature, you need somebody adventurous and innocent to be with you to learn how to mature. When you have a restless Arjuna, you need the stabilising wisdom of Krishna. When you have a Krishna, you need an Arjuna to awaken and arise to act on that wisdom. So, these complementarities have to come together—like day and night; spring and winter. A teacher can bring that missing touch in the evolving life of a student.Printed Pages: 168. 106750

Practical and Professional Ethics, Vol. 2 (Environmental Ethics)
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8180693163; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Series on Practical and Professional Ethics is an outcome of major research project funded by the U.G.C. in which the task of resolving some value-laden practical problems troubling the professionals and the non-professionals in India was undertaken. Apart from clarifying the nature, tasks and interrelation of practical and professional ethics, volume one considers five categories of ethical or value-laden practical problems such as Environmental, Biomedical, Educational, Economic and Business and Socio-Political Ethics. And their resolutions have been explained in volumes 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6, respectively.This volume, Environmental Ethics, takes up the task of nature analysis of environmental ethics. It details a number of justifications available to us to estabilise environmental ethics as a meaningful study in ethics and the distinct advantage of taking it as independent from practical and professional ethics though closely related to both. It further deals with a range of value-laden environmental issues and contesting methodologies to resolve them. Justification of inter-subjective corroboration as the desirable model in this regard and cases of practical urgency such as urbanization, harnessing rivers and building dams for power generation and nuclear options have been considered for value-resolution.

The Alternate Nation of Abanindranath Tagore
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8132102398; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Alternate Nation of Abanindranath Tagore provides a revisionary critique of the art of Abanindranath Tagore, the founder of a ‘national’ school of Indian painting, popularly known as the Bengal School of Art. It categorically argues that the art of Abanindranath, which developed as part of what has been called the Bengal Renaissance in the 19th–20th centuries, was not merely a normalization of nationalist or orientalist principles, but was a hermeneutic negotiation between modernity and community, geared toward the fashioning of an alternate nation, resistant to the stereotyping identity formation of the nation-state. It also establishes that his art—embedded in communitarian practices like kirtan, a-lpona-, pet-naming, syncretism and storytelling through oral allegories—sought a dialogic social identity within the inter-subjective contexts of locality, regionality, nationality and trans-nationality. This book is well-illustrated with many of Abanindranath’s creations. It will be a rich reference work for students, researchers and academics from various subject areas such as arts and humanities, sociology and cultural studies, and would be precious for artists, art collectors, connoisseurs, museums and art galleries.

Seven Quartets of Becoming: A Transformational Yoga Psychology Based on the Diaries of Sri Aurobindo
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8124606269; First Edition; Softcover; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Groomed in a modern academic tradition and post-Enlightenment ideals of creative freedom and social critique, Sri Aurobindo (1872-1950) turned his attention to yoga and the limits of consciousness in its ability to relate to and transform nature. In the process, he documented scrupulously his experiments and experiences based on a synergistic existential framework of practice. Debashish Banerji correlates the approach to yoga Sri Aurobindo took in his diaries with his later writings, to derive a description of human subjectivity and its powers. Banerji constellates Sri Aurobindo's approach with transpersonal psychology and contemporary lineages of phenomenology and ontology, to develop a transformative yoga psychology redefining the boundaries and possibilities of the human and opening up lines of self-practice towards a wholeness of being and becoming.

This book makes a philosophical analysis of the concepts of pain, suffering and evil for their nature and meaning. Drawing heavily on a vast body of positive and social sciences as well as on some branches and schools of philosophy such as Marxism, Existentialism, Buddhism, Jainism, the Vedas, the Upanisadas and the Gita, it presents an in-depth study of how these concepts are defined, and used, what they refer to, what meanings are conveyed to us by virtue of their use and reference, and how we should distinguish or evaluate these overlapping and often synonymously understood notions.

Houses of Madness: Insanity and Asylums of Bengal in Nineteenth-Century India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2015; 0199458871; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Houses of Madness is an intriguing analysis of the history of mental asylums in nineteenth-century Bengal. It explores these institutions through several phases of their development, which not only involved changes in medical treatment and its interpretation of the mentally challenged, but also in the social composition of and the spatial distribution within mental institutions. By also locating the asylums both socially and geographically, it explains how mental illness was defined within these confines. The book compares the medical practices in India and England and shows how changing definitions of 'insanity' led to changes in the social composition of asylum inmates. Through a narration of the inmates' daily life inside the asylums of colonial Bengal, Debjani Das addresses critical issues such as inmate labour in asylums and how male and female insanity were defined differently. These questions were directly related to, and also resulted in, the development of different types of treatments for mental illness, which ranged from the medical and moral to physical and mechanical restraint.Printed Pages: 304. 104492

Rethinking Gandhi and Nonviolent Relationality: Global Perspectives
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8125033882; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
Conceived, debated and written in the shadow of our new wartorn millennium, this work brings together an impressive and varied group of scholars across the disciplinary divide to rethink Gandhi’s legacy and nonviolent ethics. What traction do peace and Gandhi have in these violent times when religious fundamentalisms of various kinds are competing with the arrogance and unilateralism of imperial capital? In what possible registers can Gandhian moral vernaculars-ahimsa, stayagraha, sarvodaya-address the ravages of our contemporary world? In rethinking Gandhi’s relevance in the new world order, the contributors approach Gandhi, not purely as an ‘Indian’ figure, but as an activist-thinker whose transcultural nonviolent ethics of the everyday eminently translates across a range of political sites. The volume also gives us vignettes of Gandhi’s more eccentric aspects-his vegetarianism, his fasts and medical practice, and his experiments in communal living. Without deifying Gandhi, the volume sensitively explores the sheer worldliness and embodied nature of Gandhi’s thought, practice and legacy. Printed Pages: 372. 033343

Srishti Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8188575003; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 21 Cms 
This volume brings together Bangla stories from Bangladesh and West Bengal in a unique attempt to see how Partition has shaped the Narratives of the two regions that share a common languages, culture and heritage. Many of these stories have been translated for the first time into English and carry the evocative, ironic tone that is a special flavour of Partition stories from the east. Differing in many ways from the stories in Urdu and Hindi, these haunting narratives question the finality and resolution of the Partition, the unsufficiency of memories and the instability of borders. As they unfold a tragic tale of loss to the world, we once again come to see how every time narratives of the Partition are re-told, they point towards our changing values, our present and our future.

A Blue Hand
Penguin/Viking; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0670082287; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
In 1961, Allen Ginsberg left New York by boat for Bombay. He brought with him his troubled lover, Peter Orlovsky, and a plan to meet up with poets Gary Snyder and Joanne Kyger. He left behind not only fellow Beats Jack Kerouac, Gregory Corso, and William Burroughs, but also the relentless notoriety that followed the publication of Howl, the epic work that branded him the voice of a generation. Drawing from extensive research, undiscovered letters, journals, and memoirs, acclaimed biographer Deborah Baker has woven a many-layered literary mystery out of Ginsberg’s odyssey. A Blue Hand follows the poet and his companions as they travel from the ashrams of the Himalayan foothills to Delhi opium dens and the burning pyres of Benares. They encounter an India of charlatans and saints, a country of spectacular beauty and spiritual promise and of devastating poverty and political unease. In Calcutta, Ginsberg discovers a circle of hungry young writers whose outrageousness and genius are uncannily reminiscent of his own past. Finally, Ginsberg searches for Hope Savage, the mysterious and beautiful girl whose path, before she disappeared, had crossed his own in Greenwich Village, San Francisco, and Paris. In their restless, comic and oft-times tortured search for meaning, the Beats looked to India for answers while India looked to the West. A Blue Hand is the story of their search for God, for love, and for peace in the shadow of the atomic bomb. It is also a story of India—its gods and its poets, its politics and its place in the American imagination. ‘A fabulous book—comic, tragic, and written with great verve and nerve—about the Beats and their ‘passage to India’’—Michael Ondaatje ‘A passionate account of the Beats at home and in the world … A truly vivid, wonderful book’ —Kiran Desai, author of The Inheritance of Loss ‘A fascinating history of the weirdest moment in the long and ongoing European and American search for the answer to it all in India’—Wendy Doniger, University of Chicago ‘Baker evokes strange worlds and distant times in a narrative that never fails to flow and that, in the end, is admirably illuminating’—Kirkus Reviews ‘[A] thoroughly compelling work of illuminating literary and spiritual history’—Booklist ‘A piece of devoted scholarship and legwork’ –The New York Times.

In 1909 Charles Leadbeater, the leading member of the Theosophical Society, came across a young Brahmin boy on a beach in Adyar in Tamil Nadu. The elderly British cleric believed that the boy was special and would become the next avatar, the new messiah, who'll lead humanity into a new age. Jiddu was fourteen then. On 3 August 1929, Jiddu Krishnamurti was to be proclaimed the Head of an organisation formed in 1911 named the Order of the Star in the East... ...Also the day when he was to give the world the words that were to reverberate through time. Truth is a pathless land. It cannot be brought down, rather the individual must make the effort to ascend to it. You cannot bring the mountain-top to the valley.Printed Pages: 160. 106858

Other Landscapes: Colonialism and the Predicament of Authority in Nineteenth-Century South India
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8125042024; Hardcover; New; New; 
Other Landscapes investigates the ordering and disordering of colonial authority in South India during the nineteenth century. The colonisation of the Nilgiri hills required a landscape to be constituted within the colonial bureaucratic order. This landscape was organised by the imperatives of improvement and marked out by ethnographic, agricultural and arboreal typologies. It was against this scheme of people, property and resources that colonial legislation and settler occupation were to be consolidated. However, this imagined landscape over which legislation was passed could neither match nor capture the complexities of the many lives inhabiting the hills. In the spaces between legislation and the everyday, colonial authority was forced constantly to transgress of its own norms and principles. Violence, inefficiency, corruption and loss of profit seeped through the margins of colonial governance.Printed Pages: 256. 101948

The Courtesans of Karim Street
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789383098996; First Edition; Paperback; New; 140 x 216 Mm 
A spiteful anonymous letter. The promise of a redgold tree. And Megan Adams sets off on a ten thousand mile journey. From the scenic suburbs of Princeton and a high crime neighbourhood of Newark in USA, onwards to India, into the posh parts of New Delhi and the narrow bazaars of the old city, Megan's travel plucks her from the politics of American academia to bring her face to face with the lurking shadows of an untold past. On an entirely different journey is Naina, a young Indian woman who must navigate the stony, impenetrable divide between the old and new sides of Delhi every day. Inheritor of an ancient tradition, she can still hear - above the wail of bangle-sellers and kabadiwallahs, the smoky, guttural rasps of the newer factories, and the old city's metallic din of lathes - the music of the sarangi and the tinkling whisper of anklets. As their stories and cultures collide, a saga unfolds, of love, loss and liberation, of timeless friendships, and of impossible choices. Printed Pages: 218. 039174

The Oxford Dictionary of Dance
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0198607652; Reissue; Paperback; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
With over 2,500 entries covering all aspects of dance, this unique dictionary is the only one of its kind available. It is the most comprehensive and up-to-date dictionary of dance in paperback, ranging from classical ballet to the cutting edge of modern dance. It provides all the information necessary for dance fans to navigate the current diverse dance scene. During the last twenty years the boundaries of dance have been radically redrawn. There has been an explosion of new activity within traditional forms like ballet, a stream of new dance languages invented by fresh generations of choreographers, and there is a growing appreciation of cultural dance forms from around the world. Fans today are likely to attend performances as varied as Spanish flamenco, Indian bharata natyam, Japanese butoh, classical ballet, and post-modern dance. With an emphasis on performance - the dance we see in our theatres today - readers will find both fact and analysis on a wide range of subjects, from styles of dance and the history of dance companies and their productions, to dancers, choreographers, and technical terms.

Presidential Discretion
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 0199466564; Hardcover; New; New; 
Despite donning a constitutional mantle that essentially binds a president to accept cabinet advice in exercising all the powers formally bestowed by the Constitution, the president of India can, in extraordinary circumstances, exercise discretion in the choice of a prime minister, acceptance of cabinet advice, dismissal of a government, and dissolution of Parliament, among other such privileges. This book examines the scope and limitations of these discretionary powers through various examples from India, Britain, and the Commonwealth. The volume draws on biographical material of Indian presidents and British sovereigns to explain how they tackled diverse political situations, the lessons from which can be unmistakable signposts for the future. The author combines three approaches—analytical, comparative, and historical. He leans heavily on authorities as well as judgments of Supreme Courts and High Courts (of select jurisdictions) providing independent argument where required. Printed Pages: 340. 111601

The Nature and Genesis of Religious Experience
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1992; 8121204216; Hardcover; New; New; 
That Religious Experiences are an integral part of human life is evident from the fact that they have occurred in all places and at all times. Based on this premise the book attempts at making a comprehensive enquiry into/analysis of the Nature and genesis of religious experiences. The focus is on religious experiences in general. While it emphasizes on the explicit forms of religious experiences like Mysticism and revelation they are treated as phenomenon and not as occurrences specific to any Religion or creed. Essentially, this book provides a broad perspective and penetrating understanding of the nature of religious experiences which shows how these experiences are not always spontaneously received but may also be cultivated. It brings to the fore the interaction between mystical experience, on the one hand, and set and setting on the other; set meaning personal predilections and setting the other than personal, i.e., physical, social, hereditary and Cultural surroundings. The place of psychological Bases and extra-mental agents like psychedelic Drugs and Music (Hindustani Classical Music) that may instigate religious experiences have been explored as both of them have occupied a significant position in most religions. The question of expression of religious experiences comprises the concluding part of the enquiry.Printed Pages: 305. 105758
