Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 8172241283 / 9788172241285; Softcover; New; 
The ancient Hindus believed in the wisdom of the dictum: If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing well. What they believed to be wise, they practiced in thought and in deed.When they set out to acquire knowledge any subject, they spared no pains, to explore every avenue. The relationship between the two sexes is something that cannot be ignored or treated in a surreptitious or haphazard way, because it is the very essence of existence and the means by which life is perpetuated. Vatsyayana's Kama Sutra is an essence of their vast studies on sex and love.Printed Pages: 220. 105320

Sind Revisited is an account of Sind and is a unique work by the indefatigable Richard Burton. Having visited Sind more than once and with his keen observation, Richard Burton has provided much useful information about this very ancient land in his own inimitable style. The description of places and people inhabiting the "Young Egypt"-the nick name applied to Sind-the legends and myths, history, society and social mores, religious beliefs, politics and of course, the ruins which Sind abounds in, food habits, the Anglo-Indian army, railroads and several other subjects are narrated in the distinctive style of the author. His remarks on the character of the inhabitants and their peculiar traits as well as idiosyncrasies make interesting reading. The incidents recorded in the book are marked by wit and humor so very characteristics of Richard Burton, the versatile raconteur. Conveniently bound together, the two volumes of Sind Revisited should interest students of history as well as those who are fond of travelling in the past. Printed pages: 692. 022782

7 Richard F. Burton
Sindh and the Races that Inhabit the Valley of the Indus: with notices of the topography and history of the Province
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8121508231 / 9788121508230; Reprint; Cloth; New; New; 
The present work is the culmination of Richard Burton's five-years stay in Sindh, where he had the opportunity to learn the manner and customs, the domestic details, and the religious opinions and language of the people among, and with whom, he lived. He found the previous descriptions of Sindh and its inhabitants of little use; they were either too popular in nature, or written with a view of imparting a superficial knowledge of the language. Richard Burton has narrated in this work long descriptions of the studies, religion and ceremonies peculiar to the race inhabiting Sindh, the first specimens of language, and notices of the literature ever printed, and also the first detailed account of native habits and customs, manner and ceremonies. This work would be useful to not only linguists, ethnographers, and historians but also general readers who are fond of travelling in the past. Printed Pages: 430 with 1 map. 029207
