Islam in India and Pakistan: A Religious History
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 9789385505638; Softcover; New; 
The history of Islam in South Asia is as diverse as the millions of individuals across India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh who consider themselves Muslim. There nonetheless are significant and controversial debates over the nature of Islam’s expansion in South Asia - whether Hindu communities were forced into conversion, whether it was a peaceful process of intermarriage, whether it was the desire for freedom from the Hindu caste system, or the influence of Sufi missionaries. This book highlights the development of Islam and poses many questions about the correct interpretation of the Islamic Religion. Printed Pages: 334. 113721

Treatment and Phonology in Dayananda
Bharatiya Vidya Prakashan; Delhi, India; 2000; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Book 'Treatment of Phonology in Dayananda' is divided mainly in three parts i.e., Intro duction, Atha Varnoccaranasiksa (including eight chapters) and Dayananda's Vicissitudes of missi-on. Dayananda compiled sixteen books on Sanskrit grammar. Out of them Varnoccaransiksa, is the first book, a treatise on the same is in hand. Phonology is one of the rarest form of human behaviour. The child first of all uses the phonology to convey something to parents, the same is ultimately converted into the language and then child learns to speak and write. Everyone in life is concerned with phonology and uses it frequently without paying any atten-tion to it. Dayananda gave more stress on it. He considered sixty three letters (thirty three consonants, twenty two vowels and eight ayogavaharups) in his description of phonology. The main aim of this treatise is to provide An Introduction to general and specific principles of phonology. Through this presentation students should become acquainted with the various techniques used in treatment of phonology. The deep-rooted things about phonology, which mean most to all of us, are usually ignored in all but very advanced studies, this treatise tries to tell about them in simple terms and to show their becoming on human affairs. Dayananda considers 63 sounds in all (Athavarnoccarana siksa), whereas Macdoncll considers 52 sounds (A vcdic grammar for students, Oxford, 1916). From the standpoint of Dayananda, there are 22 vowels, 33 consonants and 8 Ayogavaharupas. And from the point of view of Macdonell, three arc 13 vowels and 39 consonants. There is difference of 9 vowels and 2 consonants. Macdonell does not consider the nine protracted forms of the vowels and two consonants i.e., sign of Anunasika ( ) and sound of. It is worth meantioning here that Dayananda's approach is quite reasonable as these are available in Sanskrit language and Macdoncll did not notice the variations of these sounds available in different branches of the Vedic texts.Printed pages: 188. 103757

Caught by the Police is the story of a talented, public-spirited and erudite man, with a multidimensional personality, a republican bent of mind, Indian values and English sensibilities. After a brilliant academic career, he joined the Royal Air Force in 1934 at the age of 19, unfortunately, he was forced to leave on contrived medical grounds. He got into the Indian Police due to a providential combination of circumstances and events, somewhat against his inclination. But once in it, he gave his all to his profession. A brave and intrepid police officer, he went on to become a celebrated police historian. He also wrote spiritual poetry, which forms a part of the book and interestingly, could recite Shakespeare, Ghalib and the Bhagvad Gita with equal facility. Spanning a century of changing times, this book provides a unique account of the last decades of British Rule and the emergence of a new India, woven into the story of an extraordinary life lived in ordinary places and a compelling family chronicle.

Ayurvedic Management of Stroke (Hemiplegia) (Krishnadas Ayurveda Series: 88)
Chowkhamba Sanskrit Series Office; Varanasi, India; 2003; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The term stroke or cerebro-vascular accident (CVC) have fallen into disrepute; the first because it carries no information, the second because of concern about whether the disorder is actually accidental. Stroke is defined as a rapidly developed clinical signs of focal disturbance of cerebral functions of presumed vascular origin and it may be due to cerebral haemorrage, thrombosis, or embolism. There is more or less sudden paralysis affecting one side of the body; motor, sensory visual or speech functions are affected. The term paksha means half of the body and loss of function of paksha is seen in Pakshaghata. It is mainly a vata vyadhi and pitta and kapha doshas also associate vata in the causation of the disease. Charaka observes that sira snayu vishoshana leads to pakshaghata, but sushruta notes the involvement of dhamani in the pathogenesis of Pakshaghata. Chakrapani says that without understanding the prakruti (physiology) correct knowledge of vikruti (pathology) is not possible. The implications of sira, dhamani and srotas are very essential to understand the pathogeness of pakshaghata. A critical and careful study of Ayurvedic classics confirms that the structures like sira and dhamani convey vascular structures of the body.Printed Pages: 75. 100827

Forts of Andhra Pradesh
Bharatiya Kala Prakashan; Delhi, India; 1996; 8186050035; Hardcover; New; New; 
Preface. Part I : 1. Physiographical features. 2. Historical background. 3. Sources. 4. Definition, concept, evolution and classification of forts. 5. Forts in ancient Andhra. 6. Forts in medieval Andhra. 7. Administration and maintenance of forts. 8. Qutub Shahi forts in A.P. Part II : Study of select forts : 1. Warangal. 2. Gandikota. 3. Gutti. 4. Chandragiri. 5. Penukonda. 6. Udayagiri. List of important forts. Bibliography. Index."Unfortunately, there is dearth of authentic source material dealing with forts and fortifications reflecting the military architecture of India. Inspite of its abundant wealth, save few reports here and there in the Memoirs of Archaeological Survey of India and District Gazzetteers and few publications on the subject (viz) Forts of India by Verma, Amrit (1985); Forts of India by Fass, Virginia (1986) and Defence Architecture of Early Karnataka by S.K. Joshi (1985), which appeared in recent years. However, in the case of A.P., inspite of its being rich in the remains of forts--on the plains, river banks and hill tops, no such work appeared till now. In this context comes the book Forts of Andhra Pradesh, which emphasises on this much neglected aspect in the architectural and historical studies of Andhra Pradesh. It attempts to critically examine the rise and evolution of forts coupled with the concept of defence and classification of forts based mainly on the data available in archaeological excavations, extant remains, literary texts both Sanskrit and Telugu and local records from pre-state to state societies in Andhra Desa. The book also examines the nature and functional role of the forts in ancient and medieval periods in the context of contemporary trends of warfare and the way how the forts evolved themselves taking into account, the methods of attack and defence and the different kinds of weapons and strategies employed in warfare.

Parimal Publications; Delhi, India; 2005; 817110262X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The spiritual thought, in vast and vivid manner, propounded by the great Indian seers is called Darsana. At the same time Darsana also means 'vision of truth and reality.' Indian thinkers were mainly concerned with the fundamental questions of existence : what is real or reality? What is the real nature of human being?. 'How has the world come to be?.' Is it created?. If it is created then who is the creator? What is knowledge etc.?. Basically all these questions and their answers are mere blend of all those contemporary concerns which couldn't be answered by this worldly people. Tarkabhasa, a text, presents a detail discussion on Nyaya theory. It is known as an elementary treatise, a key for the beginners of the Science of Nyaya. (P 160 of the present book). It presents the subject matter in an easy language. The Tarka-bhasa with the commentary of Govardhana and critical and explanatory notes of S.M. Paranjape was first published in 1894. In the present edition, the editor has given a brief introduction of the subject matter and has put forward the useful notes of S.M. Paranjape alone with the text so that the students and advanced scholars could refer to the notes directly while reading the text.Printed Pages: 184. 100613

8640 Dr. Shiv Mohan Mishra
Helplessness
Gen Next Publication/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789380222523; Softcover; New; 
The novel 'Helplessness' is a strong exposition of highly educated, gentle husband men's suffering their inner conflict, their heartfelt anguish, their chest rendering pain and the wail of their miserable condition in a very pathetic manner living among the civilized human society of the world. It well exposes the helpless condition of a gentle husband person in t he society which is known as the man dominant one. It has also a slight satirical attack upon the modern legal system prepared particularly for women security, its drawbacks and its negative aspects. The expression of vehement mental anguish and poignant wail of most prestigiously gentle husband man like Dr. Nilay is the key note of the novel. Besides these things the novel contains a very superb glorification of womanhood as well as of a good wife in the life of any man. Several allusion s and quotations are full of enormous practical wisdom. It also deals with the unique description of love, its power, it s validity and its all pervasive force. I hope every sensible reader will appreciate this work. Wishing for the bright future! , About the author:- lt is possible to say something about the man who lives in the worldly • boundaries. But a person who has gone beyond the conventional reach how a man like me can describe him. But as he urged me to write something about him, so I am telling as I have been seeing him for last 20 years in his friendly guidance.

Archaeology of Karnataka (Pre and Proto History of South Western Region)
Bharatiya Kala Prakashan; Delhi, India; 2011; 9788180900969 ; Hardcover; New; New; 
Foreword. Acknowledgement. Abbreviations. 1. Introduction. 2. Lower Palaeolithic sites. 3. Middle Palaeolithic sites. 4. Upper Palaeolithic sites. 5. Mesolithic sites. 6. Neolithic sites. 7. Megalithic sites. 8. Chronology. 9. Some aspects of the pre and proto, historic cultures: observations. Appendixes: i. Catalogue of the archaeological sites. ii. Description of the figures. iii. Trial digging at Benakanahalli (Illustrations). iv (a). Report on the fossil sample. iv (b). Report on the faunal remains from Benakanahalli trial digging. Bibliography. Index.Archaeological research in different parts of Karnataka has come a long way over since Meadows Taylor (1842) and Robert Bruce Forte (1881) brought to light sites of pre-historic appendage. Subsequent explorations carried out by various scholars in different geographical zones of Karnataka particularly in the Krishna, Malaprabha, Ghataprabha valleys has revealed significant evidences relating to different category of Palaeolithic, Neolithic and Megalithic cultures. However, comparatively such studies were wanting in the south-western part of Karnataka particularly in the central mountainous region of Western Ghats comprising the districts of Hassan, Chikamagalur and Shimoga popularly called the Malnad Region. But for sporadic discovery of Palaeolithic or Neolithic sites here and there, no systematic studies had been attempted till recently in this monsoon belt of Karnataka.In the light of the background, extensive explorations undertaken by the author in the river valleys of the Upper Cauvery, Tunga, Bhadra, Upper Tungabhadra, Hemavati, Kumudvati, the Vedavati and their tributaries have provided welcome light on various chronological stages of the Palaeolithic cultures and occurrence of a upper Palaeolithic site in the Upper Tungabhadra valley is very significant.Mesolithic tools found as surface finds in different physiographical situations ranging from river valleys to hill tops or gravel beds near dried up water bodies denote a unique characteristics of this culture in the south-western part of Karnataka and exhibits similarity in their typo-technology, rock material to Mesolithic tools reported form sites in the Northern Karnataka region or in the adjacent Tamilnadu, Kerala regions.Interestingly, systematic explorations in the Upper Tungabhadra Valley has yielded substantial number of Neo-Chalcolithic habitation sites with adequate assemblage of pottery of Neolithic-Chalcolithic, Megalithic appendage indicating clearly that these regions were continuously inhabited and helps in reconstructing the processes of transformation from the hunting gathering stage to the food producing or village economy stage, particularly in this hilly country covered with dense forest.The efforts of the author to locate different types of Megalithic Sites in the Upper Cauvery and Upper Tungabhadra region and an occasional site at a higher-altitude of Malnad Hills throws significant light on the selection of locations depending on the availability of suitable rock material, security and economic needs of the erstwhile Megalithic People of the region.This book provides an excellent background for further studies in the region under reference and would be of great interest to the students of pre and proto-history in understanding the lesser known archaeological aspects of the south western part of Karnataka.

Gender, Violent Conflict and Development
Zubaan; New Delhi, India; 8189013602; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The last few decades have witnessed growing theoretical and practical concerns with intersections between violent conflict and development. Links between poverty and natural resources have been minutely explored, and attention has also been given to how state collapse and bad governance have contributed to violent conflict. However, gender relations and ideologies have often been overlooked in theorization of these interconnections, as well as in designing development strategies meant to mend the devastating impact that war leaves on a society. This book looks at the intersections between development practice and violent conflict from an explicit gender perspective and situates the fields of inquiry within a global condition of neo-liberal economy and militarism. Using the notions of femininity and masculinity as analytical tools, contributors question theoretical, political and policy approaches pertaining to specific development strategies in times of prolonged violent conflict, transitions to peace, and post-conflict periods. They further analyse various social, cultural, economic and political processes and relations of power that impact upon different groups of women, men and children in the contexts of militarization and violence.

Honorary Tiger: The Life of Billy Arjan Singh
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174364056; Hardcover; New; New; 
Popularly known as India's latterday Jim Corbett and 'tiger man', 87-year-old Billy Arjan Singh is by any standards an extraordinary man. At Tiger Haven, his home in a magical spot on the edge of the jungle in UP, Singh's experiments with bringing up three orphaned leopards, and also Tara, a tiger cub that he imported from a zoo in England, shot him into both limelight and controversy. His aim was to see if Tara's instincts would make her revert to the wild when she became mature. They did, and over the years, she produced four litters of cubs, thus proving his contention that it is possible to supplement dwindling wild stocks with zoo-born animals. But when it was discovered that the tigress had Siberian genes in her ancestry, he was accused of having introduced a 'genetic cocktail'into the jungle. Undeterred, Singh remained a champion of the forest and its denizens. It was almost entirely due to his advocacy that in 1973 the then Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi, authorized the creation of the Dudhwa National Park. Now, in his eighties, comes recognition for his efforts. In March 2005, he received the J. Paul Getty Wildlife Conservation award - a global honour administered by the World Wildlife Fund, that serves to recognize outstanding contributions in international conservation. In this affectionate biography, the British author Duff Hart-Davis tells the story of a man absolutely dedicated to the cause of animals, who has given fifty years of his own life to their conservation.

8675 Durgabati Ghose; Translated from the Original Bengali Paschimjatriki By Somdatta Mandal; with a Foreword By Ashis Nandy
The Westward Traveller
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8125039910; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
In 1923, Durgabati Ghose, an upper middle-class Bengali woman accompanied her husband on a trip across Europe. The Westward Traveller (originally Paschimjatriki) is an enchanting written record of this four-month long sojourn. Filtered through her upper middle-class upbringing and perceptions, the narrative is observant—not only emphasising on a sense of place, space and landscape, but also an aesthetic, intrinsic appreciation of every destination. The writing comes alive in the author’s everyday interactions with ordinary people, be they fellow travellers or hotel owners or even beggars. Focussing on an accurate description of the ‘real world’, she is always concerned with verisimilitude. An interesting fact about this travelogue is that even within its set pattern, it offers nuggets of history. What makes the account endearing is the various examples of intercultural encounters and wry comments, often arising from not knowing the language and making value judgments that can be cited at random. As Ashis Nandy says in his Foreword to this translated work, ‘the way Durgabati recounts her adventures in Europe makes them variations on familiar Bengali domesticity, interpersonal patterns and femininity played outside their natural locale. This gives the travelogue a stamp of predictability and at the same time, a touch of robust, irreverent charm and self-confidence.’ To translate this depiction of Europe in colonial times through the eyes of a modernising Bengali woman has been a ‘labour of love’ for translator Somdatta Mandal. Simple and lucid in style, the work retains the traces of the times in which it was originally written and is faithful to the intention of the narrative. Coloured in the expanding consciousness of an individual woman, exploring previously unknown areas of the world, away from the home and hearth characterised by conventionality, conservatism and domesticity, this travel narrative will be a significant contribution to the history of women’s travel narratives from colonial Bengal.

Deprivation: Its Social Roots and Psychological Consequences
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1995; 8170221625; Hardcover; New; New; 
Socio-cultural and economic disadvantage has emerged as a focal theme of study in recent years. Psycho-social deprivation and its consequences have scarcely been systematically studied in the Indian social context where widespread poverty and socio-cultural inequalities play a decisive role in the growth of human personality. The present book brings together a collection of 14 papers by eminent psychologists, sociologists and political scientists read at an interdisciplinary symposium on ‘Psycho-Social Deprivation held at the U.G.C. Centre of Special Assistance on Psychological Study of Social Change and National Development, and Department of Psychology, Allahabad University. The papers included in the book deal with conceptual and methodological issues involved in the study of deprivation and psycho-social consequences of cultural and economic disadvantage in several relevant areas of human functioning. The effects of deprivation in diverse contexts, viz., nutritional deficiency, language deficits, development of congnitive skills, school achievement, motivational and personality changes have been analysed. Finally, and attempt is made to suggest intervention strategies to cope with the problems of socio-economic disadvantage. The book, therefore, should be of immense value for social psychologists, child development and educational psychologists apart from the social scientists who are engaged in studying wider problems of socio-economic inequalities in our country.

Rethinking Western India: The Changing Contexts of Culture, Society and Religion
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125055827; Hardcover; New; New; 
While investigating the cultural, social and political dynamics in Maharashtra, Rethinking Western India looks into the relations and processes that make up what are usually thought to be regional problems. The essays show how the regional must be understood in contexts that supersede the region and geographical determinism. The opening essays not only contextualise Maharashtrian texts as coherent wholes, but also the meanings contained within these texts, thereby addressing “the semantics of the social”. A focus on “the mechanics of the social”—the interface of actions that articulate societal relationships at different levels, and of different characters—is attempted by the next set of essays. The concluding essays emphasise how local dynamics are as much a part of forces ostensibly “beyond Maharashtra”, as they are products of dynamics within Maharashtra. There is, therefore, a deep analysis of the social and cultural referents upon which collective identities are built.Printed Pages: 308. 101924

Electoral Processes and Governance in South Asia
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0761935770; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Most South Asian countries—following independence from British rule in the late nineteen forties, and in the case of Nepal, liberation from the autocracy of one family group in 1950—have enjoyed democratic systems of governance at least at some time or the other, often for extended periods of time, and, in a few cases, over the course of their post-independence history. Electoral processes have, however, been found wanting to greater or lesser extents in all these countries. Electoral malpractices are of critical concern to all South Asian countries. It is in this background that the International Centre for Ethnic Studies, Kandy,Sri Lanka, with funding from the Ford Foundation, organized in 2002, an international conference on electoral processes and governance in South Asia. The South Asian countries selected for study were Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, and papers were presented by experts in the area of electoral processes and governance in these countries. This book, based on the papers originally presented at that conference, seeks to understand electoral processes as they actually operate in South Asia, to discuss the reasons for the flaws in these systems and the degrees of success or failure in attempts at reform.

Rising Sun Melting Mists: Knowledge of Self dispels Ignorance
Zen Publications/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 9789382788850; Softcover; New; 
This book is a collection of articles written over a period of a few years and later put together. The astounding first intimation to the effect that, by the word GOD, all saints and sages of all times have implied the realizable truth of oneself, was received by the author when he was a 35 years old man-of-the-world. The revelation broke upon him with explosive wonderment and delight. How could such an inheritance be forfeited through indifference? He questioned, searched foranswers, contemplated, and tried to shape his life as prompted by the ascending reality of self-enquiry. “In each article, reflection and spontaneous inspiration mingle inextricably” - The Heritage “Enjoy the poetic prose of his soaring thoughts. Each article an Upanishadic Canto” - Swami Chinmayananda, international exponenf of Vedanfa and spirihial master “Beauty of style and power of thought... autherrticity of experience... precision of expression...” - M.R Pandit, Sri Aurobindo Ashram “...conveying profound ideas effortlessly... marvellous book... Each article is a treasure” - The Hindu, leading national daily “Small but profound. One line, one thought, enough to drive one to contemplation, A book to be savoured line by line.” - M.V. Kamath in Bhavan’s Journal “A book of great value... sincerity and intense spiritual aspiration.” - The Theosophist. Printed Pages: 206. 111650

The Dicey Problem of New Age Science
Zen Publications/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 8188071641; Softcover; New; 
Order flows from consistent laws. Our understanding of our universe is changing, but Reality behind it is unchanged. Einstein’s relativity amended Newtonian determinism, and was in turn amended by quantum mechanics. Einstein saw a harmonious advance in knowledge, and said, “God does not play dice”; but Stephen Hawking later saw a radical departure, and said, “God is a gambler”.This author, a deep student of philosophy with a moderate background of science, sees in these conflicting conclusions the inevitable distortion when “the relative” is projected on to “the Absolute.” Therefore he says, “Do not worry about God. He is not a visiting player like you and me, but the absolute owner of the casino. When He plays, His ieft hand picks up what His right hand loses, His status remains unaltered. We had better be looking out for ourselves.” The serious point made is that the Absolute includes and exceeds the time-space-causation frame of relativity, and these parameters cannot cross the border.The limitations must be clearly understood.“Time” of physics is enough to study kinetic processes but not to locate the creative potential. That requires “time” of our conscious awareness. But bio-science mistakes consciousness to be a product of brain-cells. In truth, consciousness is the energy, and brain is the equipment through which it manifests.Thus TIME is the Achilles’ heel of physics, and MIND is the Achilles’ heel of biology. The name of Reality is Total Consciousness. It is eternal, Death was never born, and life never died. Printed Pages: 189. 111668
