Cultural Communication in India: Role and Impact of Phonograms
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1992; 8170223679 / 9788170223672; Hardcover; New; New; 
The book is perhaps the first ever attempt in India to view the phonogram as an instrument of cultural change and development. Most of the studies so far, though not many, were confined to the narration of its historical and technical aspects. This empirical study, based on a detailed survey and several interviews, therefore, assumes importance for at least two reasons: firstly, for ushering in an age of audio-visual mass media (while the visual media in the form of print had already existed, the film-media appeared almost concurrently) which brought the music in general, and our great musical tradition and masters in particular, almost at the doorstep of the people, and secondly, for opening up of a music industry which a few years after the invention of the gramophone, unleashed a great source of business and gave rise to what has become a flourishing cultural industry especially after the introduction of audio-cassettes in the mid-sixties. This book deals not only with the history of the phonogram industry in India beginning from about 1902 when the gramophone was introduced, with the first recording following soon thereafter, but also the status of the industry in terms of Releases (classified according to the type of music), Sales, Production, and Export-Import, etc., as also the problems this growth has brought for it. In this connection it also discusses the problems and status of the artists. The study was sponsored by UNESCO in cooperation with MEDIACULT, Vienna, an affiliate of the UNESCO.

Encyclopedia of Indian Philosophies: Vol. XV: Bhedabheda and Dvaitadvaita Systems
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8120836375 / 9788120836372; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
All too frequently the term Vedanta is used when what is meant, whether recognized or not, is Advaita Vedanta and more specifically, the philosophical system associated with Sankaracarya. Yet in fact Vedanta, literally meaning "the concluding portions of the Veda", i.e., the Upanisads, is properly used in Indian philosophy to designate those systems that take such texts as the Upanisads authoritatively along with a few others such as the Brahmasutras, alternatively known as the Vedantasutras. There are a goodly number of philosophical systems, other than Sankara's, that fall into the classification of Vedanta systems, many of them virtually unknown to most students. The names of many of the Vedanta systems derive from their respective theories concerning the relation between Brahman, celebrated in the Upanisads as the highest principle, and Atman, the individual self. Advaita argues these are identical, non-different (abheda); Dvaita says they are completely different (bheda). Other Vedantic systems resist these extremes and argue that the relation between Brahman and self is one of identity-in-difference (bhedabheda). The best-known such system is the Visistadvaita system of Ramanuja and the Srivaisnavas, but there are many others. Here in this Volume the literature of several others of this bhedabheda persuasion-those associated with the names of Bhartr-prapanca, Bhaskara and Srikantha- are explored.

Freedom of the Soul: A Post-Modern Understanding of Hinduism
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8180690024 / 9788180690020; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book claims that in the age of scientific realism, Hinduism is probably the most reasonable faith available to mankind. Hinduism recognises the presence of apparently opposing concepts in man?s religious knowledge. But unlike other religions, instead of dogmatically asserting one of the opposites, Hinduism maintains that both are necessary for a complete knowledge of Reality. Thus, both, the one impersonal divine reality Brahman and the personal God Ishwara, the transcendental self Atman and the empirical self Jivatman, freedom and determinism in action or Karma, the eternal and the temporal in the incarnation of God or Avatar, death and the continuing existence of the individual in rebirth, and devotion and atheistic meditations in approaching the divine are necessary for comprehending God as the eternal Truth. This book brings a clear and insightful presentation of the wisdom of Hinduism in all its fundamental principles. Another interesting feature of this book is the inclusion of J. Krishnamurti, who is shown to be carrying forward the spiritual quest of Hinduism?the quest of everlasting freedom from bondage to life in the temporal world. For anyone who is seriously interested in understanding this most ancient and comprehensive religious experience of man, this book is an indispensable introduction. Printed Pages: 146. 112077
