807 Abu'L-Fazl (Author) & Wheeler M. Thackston (Ed. & Tr.)
The History of Akbar, Volume 2
Harvard University Press/IBD; Noida, India; 2016; 0674495217; Softcover; New; 14 x 20 Cm 
Akbarnama, or The History of Akbar, by Abu’l-Fazl (d. 1602), is one of the most important works of Indo-Persian history and a touchstone of prose artistry. Marking a high point in a long, rich tradition of Persian historical writing, it served as a model for historians across the Persianate world. The work is at once a biography of the Mughal emperor Akbar (r. 1556–1605) that includes descriptions of his political and martial feats and cultural achievements, and a chronicle of sixteenth-century India. The second volume details the turbulent reign of his father Humayun, his years in exile, his return to power, and his untimely death that brought Akbar to the throne as a youth. The Persian text, presented in the Naskh script, is based on a careful reassessment of the primary sources. Printed Pages: 588 with 8 maps. 107397

Fertility Transition in Rural South India
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1989; 812120268X; Hardcover; New; New; 
This work reports the socio-economic correlates of the recent fertility decline in the Rural areas of South India. After an in-depth discussion of the social and economic explores the aspects of Differential fertility, Effects of changing Family structure, and intra-family Relationship on fertility and Pattern of fertility decision-making. A micro-demographic Research Methodology was used to undertake this Investigation in a cluster of four villages about 65 km. Away from Bangalore. A Beginning of fertility decline in this area was found running parallel to profound economic and social changes which have occurred especially since independence. Besides an important effect of declining infant and Childhood mortalilty, the fertility decline was a function of material fertility associated with changes in the intrinsic behaviour of individuals. The behavioural changes were due to recent modification in intra-and inter-family relationship the unilinearly extended family system appears to have given way to a bilateral extended system in which affines (wife's side relatives) are playing a greater role in decision-making. The Young are assuming decision-making responsibilities relatively early and Women have progressed to a Higher Level of participation in the family and fertility decision making. The pattern is that such changes are more frequent in the Large Heterogeneous villages while the smaller and remote villages are yet to experience these Forces of social change. A moderate increase in literacy, an exposure to Urban influence and the growing Importance of monetization have enabled villagers to think and act more independently than in the past and this has made them more secular. The Study is an important reference work for academics and students of Demography sociology, family welfare and rural development. Planers and development workers will find invaluable fact and figures to Help in their policy-making.Printed Pages: 360. 105710

821 Acarya Dr Sadhvi Sadhana with a Foreword By Shri Shivraj V. Patil
The Universe of Acharya Sushil Muni: The Philosophy of the World Religion
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8121510910; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
Acharya Sushil Muniji Maharaj gave spiritual guidance to the humanity at large and inspired them to realize peace through non-violence. He propagated religion for peace, fully conscious of the fact that peace and harmony were essential for the survival of mankind and its abode-the planet Earth. The assiduous Saint Sushil Muni founded World Fellowship of Religions in order to project the humanitarian aspect of religion to meet multifarious challenges faced by the suffering humanity. He emphasized the need to save religion from distortions and misuse. As harbinger of world peace, he defined non-violence as the absence of hatred, tension, anger and discontentment. He enjoined upon all human beings to protect environment, help maintain ecological balance which is essential for the survival of humanity as well as plant and animal life. He was a strong votary of pollution-free mind and surroundings. His cherished dream for a peaceful and non-violent world can be realized by the pursuit of religion for universal peace in conformity with the noble ideals of Lord Rsabhanatha to Lord Mahavira. The humanitarian aspects of religion and the theory of non-violence with the perspective of "World Religion" of Muni Sushilji have been extensively described in this book-a biographical sketch of Muniji, the leader of humanity.

The Tibetan Corpse Stories
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8120836316; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
In the center of Asia and the southwest part of China lies the Tibetan plateau, which is about 4,500 metres above sea-level. Given its high altitude, this area is popularly known as the Roof of the World. It is also the source of the major rivers of Asia, these are the Indus, the Salween, the Mekong, the Yangtze, and the Huang Ho river. In the past, on the plateau there was a country called Tibet and it was divided into three provinces, U-Tsang in the west and Kham and Amdo in the east. The people who lived there were called Tibetan. They were introduced to Indian culture as early as the year 600 CE and Indian Buddhism played a major influence. These people established their own individual Tibetan Buddhism which later spread to Mongolia and to other Himalayan regions.Most of the early Tibetan literature was derived from ancient Indian Buddhist literature. However, one popular non-Buddhist literature that came from India was Vetala (Vetalapancavimsatika) or corpse stories. In Tibet it is called, Ro sgrun (pronounced Ro Dun) also called, Siddhivad corpse stories, it means stories told by a dead body. Tibetans memorized the corpse stories and transmitted them orally to all parts of Tibet. During that time, the Indian Vetala (corpse stories) changed into Tibetan stories. They became one of the most important literature in Tibet. Many years later, after the stories had traveled to all of the areas in Tibet, hand-written manuscripts (U Med) were made of them. This is why there are a few different versions of the same stories, because people in different areas remembered them differently. Printed Pages: 262. 102039

The second fabel, The Legend of the Birds and Monkeys, involves us in a dispute between a group of monkeys and a flock of birds. The way the dispute is resolved highlights the WISDOM of a fair-minded and logical approach in the face of argument and aggression.

826 Acaryadeva Sri Gunaratna Suriji M.S.
Illustrated Jain Ramayana: A Unique Combination of Universal Philosophy and Jain Culture
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2004; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Ramayana is an integral part of the Indian culture since ages. Therefore, we find it published in all the Indian languages. Many Jain versions of Ramayana are available. Some of them have picture in black and white, but the TV age or computer age demanded something more than this. The modern time demands attractive four colour pictures; for they make a book not only attractive but also interesting. "One picture is more than a thousand words." Diksadanesvari Acaryadevasri Gunaratnasurisvaraji m.s. had conceived and nutured a dream of Ramayana since past fourteen years. His sermons on Ramayana have stirred and touched innumerable hearts at Jodhpur, Pali, Nagore, Jalore, Sirohi, Bikaner, Ahmedabad etc. When he narrated the events from the life of Anjanasundari and Sitaji at Bikaner, artist like sri Dilip Soni and many other followers of non-Jain faiths also couldn't control their tears. Jain Ramayana: The Jain pantheon states that Lord Munisuvrat Svami, a Tirthankara, was born more than 11,75,000 years ago. Suvrata Muni, the spiritual teacher and master of Sri Rama, was a descendant of Munisuvrat Svami. King Anaranya, the grand father of Rama, was born during his regime. The average life span of a man at that was much longer. Rama must have been born much later. The Jain pantheon mentions that Lord Mahavira Svami learnt about Ramayana with his Kevalagyan and narrated it to his disciple Ganadhara Gautama, who compiled it in the form of sutras. It reached Sri Vimalasuri through the oral tradition.Printed Pages: 128. 102440

Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8180691403; Hardcover; New; New; 
This English version of Acharya Nagrajji's book' Agama aur Tripitaka: Ek Anusilana' presents an exhaustive study of the Agama, also known as Ganipitaka of the Jains and the Tripitaka of the Buddhists, putting together some common topics.

For this work Acharya Nagrajji was awarded D.Litt. by Kanpur University and Murti devi Awad by Bhartiya Jnan Pith, New Delhi. Studying the history and traditions of both the Jains and Buddhists, Volume One surveys all the accessible materials and provides authentic information about the life and times of Mahavir and Buddha, with special reference to their Nirvana.Volume Two deals with language and literature. Besides references of Yask, Panini, Katyayan and Patanjali, Acharya Shri has produced illustrations and conclusions from Greek, Latin and Hebrew languages. He has referred to Vedic, Bodh and Jain ideologies with critical evaluation. In addition to exposing the short-sighted attitude of religious doctrinaires towards languages, he deals with geographical, historical and cultural backgrounds of ancient languages. Also, Acharya Shri makes a comparative and meaningful discussion on Digamber and Shwetamber beliefs with regard to divine language Ardh Magadhi, Prakrita and Agama scriptures, as also he provides critical analysis of phonology, morphology, semantics and syntax.Volume Three covers philosophy and ethics. It highlights the best traits of human beings, such as righteousness, truth, non-stealing, good conduct, simplicity, purity, kindness, penance, renunciation, softness, humility, selflessness, contentment, non-possession, fraternity, universal brotherhood, equanimity, equality of living beings and control over sensuousness. It also provides deep insights into the legendary of Agama and Tripitaka traditions. Generally, all the religious expositions seek expressions through emulative examples like folktales and imaginary stories. Printed Pages: 672. 112042

Postal Systems in the Pre-Modern Islamic World
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2007; 0521858682; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 155 x 240 Mm 
Adam Silverstein's book offers a fascinating account of the official methods of communication employed in the Near East from pre-Islamic times through the Mamluk period. Postal systems were set up by rulers in order to maintain control over vast tracts of land. These systems, invented centuries before steam-engines or cars, enabled the swift circulation of different commodities - from letters, people and horses to exotic fruits and ice. As the correspondence transported often included confidential reports from a ruler's provinces, such postal systems doubled as espionage-networks through which news reached the central authorities quickly enough to allow a timely reaction to events. The book sheds light not only on the role of communications technology in Islamic history, but also on how nomadic culture contributed to empire-building in the Near East. This is a long-awaited contribution to the history of pre-modern communications systems in the Near Eastern world. • The first book in the English language to analyse the official methods of communication employed in Near Eastern history, from pre-Islamic times through the Mamluk period • Will appeal to scholars in Islamic history, and to those interested in the history of pre-modern technology in general and communications-technology in particular • Includes detailed maps of postal routes Contents Part I. The Pre-Islamic Background: 1. Pre-Islamic Postal Systems; Part II. Conquest and Centralisation - The Arabs: 2. al-Barid: the early Islamic postal system; 3. Diwan al-Barid: the middle Abbasid period; Part III. Conquest and Centralisation - The Mongols: 4. The Mongol Yam and its legacy; 5.

Hilariously funny, this is a breath of fresh air for parents new, old and expectant. Audio versions of the book have been done by American actor Samuel L. Jackson and German director Warner Herzog.

Tehzeeb: Culinary Traditions of Awadh
Lustre Press/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174369821; Hardcover; New; New; 
In a Lucknow famous for its art, craft, and way of living, food was the single element that united the prince and peasant alike. This book provides a peek into the resplendent Lucknow of yore. Into the kitchens where food and art became synonymous, where simple rice dishes were fashioned to look like glowing pearls, and where some of the world’s most famous dum and tandoor recipes were invented. A world defined by grace, beauty, and a heightened culinary aesthetic – where every meal required a perfectly appointed table, and where each ingredient was circumscribed to a particular time of day. It is nostalgia for this sensual city of the past that defines Adil I. Ahmad’s life and work, and is palpable in the pages of Tehzeeb. Printed Pages: 240. 108644

Rustic Ragas: Inner Melodies of Thota Vaikuntam
Timeless Books/TBI; New Delhi, India; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book presents fifteen new dramatic paintings by Hyderabad-based artist Vaikuntam. Vaikuntam's Telangana folk meld the memory of his eyes and his fingers. They embody a unique world, of daily rites of life couched within an imaginative terrain.The monumentality of Vaikuntam's figures in rich primary colours of the earth assume a mythical dimension, enhanced by the solidity of their execution in acrylic. They seem like demigods, not village folk - looming, tantalizing, almost unapproachable. Vaikuntam voices the collective yearning for a separate Telangana identity, beyond politics, beyond couched cultures. His rich palette and easily recognizable faces and figures have given his work acceptability; paintings that are strikingly modern without any allegiance to anything usually associated with modernity. In these huge canvases, Vaikuntam immortalizes his earthly icons for all time. Printed Pages: 147. 112933

Local Cells, Global Science: The Rise of Embryonic Stem Cell Research in India
Routledge; London, UK; 2009; 0415396093; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The book examines for the first time the extent of transnational movements of tissue, stem cells, and expertise, in the developing governance framework of India. It documents the impact of local and global governance frames on the everyday conduct of research, by tracing the journey of ‘spare’ human embryos in IVF clinics to public and private laboratories engaged in isolating stem cells for potential therapeutic application. The empirical research is informed by a comparative analysis of the ethical, religious and social issues in North America and Europe, and compared with other tissue and organ donations already prevalent in India. The discussion also examines the gender dimension as a potential site for exploitation in the sourcing of embryonic and other biogenic materials, and suggests that a moral economy has developed in which the ethical values of the global North support and encourage the donation of abundant and ethically ‘neutral’ embryos by the South. Contents Acknowledgements 1. The local, the global, and the contextual: an introduction 2. Dis-locations: local cultures of cells, global transactions in science 3. Biosociality to bio-crossings: encounters with embryonic stem cell in India 4. Sacrificial gifts: infertile citizens and the moral economy of embryos 5. ‘Miraculous stem cells’: the liminal third space and media rhetoric 6. One ethic fits all? Complexities in cross-cultural standardization, bioethics and regulatory protocols 7. Conclusion Notes Bibliography Index. Printed Pages: 148. 031504

RSS, School Texts, and the Murder of Mahatma Gandhi: The Hindu Communal Project
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8178298546; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
RSS, School Texts and the Murder of Mahatma Gandhi undertakes the novel experiment of juxtaposing three apparently quite different issues, the nature of the RSS school textbooks, the murder of the Mahatma and the basic ideology of Savarkar and Golwalkar. While deeply delving into all three aspects, it brings out the deep connection between them. The book, which brings out the basic ideological underpinnings of the Hindu Communal Project, is divided into three parts. Part I discusses how this ideology is propagated among young impressionable minds through school textbooks. Part II studies the role of the Sangh combine in the murder of Mahatma Gandhi and Part III analyses the basic elements of the Hindu communal ideology, as propounded by some of its founders like Savarkar and Golwalkar. The book brings home to us in a dramatic manner the great threat communalism poses to our society, thus making it a must-read for the general educated reader, including politicians, political workers, social activists and journalists.
