Trautmann's analysis and rendering of Arthashashtra is a unique exercise' - Business Standard This book is a definitive introduction to the classic text, the Arthashastra, the world's first manual on political economy. The 2000-year-old treatise is ascribed to Kautilya, the prime minister of King Chandragupta Maurya, and is as important to Indian thought as Machiavelli?s The Prince is to Europe. Arthashastra, or 'the science of wealth', is a study of economic enterprise, and advises the king-entrepreneur on how to create prosperity. Thomas Trautmann?s exploration of this seminal work illuminates its underlying economic philosophy and provides invaluable lessons for the modern age. Printed Pages: 206. 107406

3 Scott C. Levi (Author) & Gurcharan Das (Frwd)
Caravans: Indian Merchants on the Silk Road (The Story of Indian Business)
Allen Lane/Penguin Books; New Delhi, India; 2015; 0670087300 / 9780670087303; Hardcover; New; New; 
Caravans tells the fascinating story of tens of thousands of intrepid Multani and Shikarpuri merchants who risked everything to travel great distances and spend years of their lives pursuing their fortunes in foreign lands.From the sixteenth through the nineteenth centuries, these merchants lived as 'guests' in cities and villages across Afghanistan, Central Asia, Iran and Russia. Setting aside beliefs that caravan traders were simple peddlers, Scott C. Levi examines the sophisticated techniques these merchants used to convert a modest amount of merchandise into vast portfolios of trade and moneylending ventures.Caravans also challenges the notion that the rising tide of European trade in the Indian Ocean usurped the overland 'Silk Road' trade and pushed Central Asia into economic isolation. In fact, as Levi shows, it was at precisely the same historical moment that thousands of Multanis began making their way to Central Asia, linking the early modern Indian and Central Asian economies closer together than ever before.

7 Tirthankar Roy (Author) & Gurcharan Das (Intro.)
The East India Company: The World's Most Powerful Corporation (The Story of Indian Business)
Penguin Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 0143426176 / 9780143426172; Softcover; New; 
The East India Company is an interesting inspection of how a colonial company defined the way we do business today'-BusinessWorld this groundbreaking study examines how the East India Company founded an empire in India at the same time it started losing ground in business. For over 200 years, the Company's vast business network had spanned Persia, India, China, Indonesia and North America. But in the late 1700s, its career took a dramatic turn, and it ended up being an empire builder. In this fascinating account, Tirthankar Roy reveals how the Company?s trade with India changed it - and how the Company changed Indian business. Fitting together many pieces of a vast jigsaw puzzle, the book explores how politics meshed so closely with the conduct of business then, and what that tells us about doing business now. 'One of the first major attempts to tell the company's story from an Indian business perspective' - Financial Express. Printed Pages: 264. 107407

8 Thomas A. Timberg (Author) & Gurcharan Das (Intro.)
The Marwaris: From Jagat Seth to the Birlas (The Story of Indian Business)
Penguin Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 014342405X / 9780143424055; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
In the nineteenth century, a tiny community from the deserts of Rajasthan spread out to every corner of India. The Marwaris controlled much of the countrys inland trade by the time of the First World War. They then turned their hand to industry and by the 1970s, owned most of Indias private industrial assets. Today, Marwari businessmen account for a quarter of the Indian names on the Forbes billionaires list. What makes the Marwaris so successful? Is it their indomitable enterprise or their incredible appetite for risk? In this new book, Thomas Timberg shows how the Marwaris rely on a centuries-old system for conserving and growing capital which has stood them in good stead, alongside a strong sense of business ethics which has earned them respect. Family businesses in general and the Marwaris in particular might have a vital role to play in shaping Indias economic future. Printed Pages: 214. 107405

9 Arshia Sattar (Author) & Gurcharan Das (Intro.)
The Mouse Merchant: Money in Ancient India (The Story of Indian Business)
Penguin Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 0143424726 / 9780143424727; Softcover; New; 
Even in ancient India, money is always a good thing and everyone wants it. The stories in The Mouse Merchant selected from the Sanskrit universe, from the period of the late Rig Veda to the twelfth century tells us how money was dealt with in everyday life in ancient and medieval Indian society. At the heart of these tales is the merchant. Sometimes gullible, sometimes greedy ingenious at some moments, dim-witted at others and hopelessly in love with courtesans but also loyal to their wives, our merchant heroes show how innovation in business is sometimes more important than capital. The Mouse Merchant puts these stories into the context of Indian business history, giving not only rare insights into the romance of the ancient seafaring life but also great wisdom about money.

11 Gurcharan Das
Three English Plays: Larins Sahib/Mira/9 Jakhoo Hill
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2003; 019566633X / 9780195666335; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This volume brings together a collection of three plays written by Gurcharan Das during his twenties. An introduction by the renowned playwright himself, adds to its value. Larins Sahib is a historical play set in the confused period after the death of Ranjit Singh when the British first arrived in Punjab. This prize-winning play explores the development of the hubris, which brings about the hero’ s downfall. Larins Sahib has been performed in major Indian cities, and at the Edinburgh Festival. Mira, ‘ a rite of Krishna for five actor-dancers’ , premiered at the La Mama Theatre in New York in 1970. It explores the phenomenon of sainthood through the story of Mirabai, the sixteenth century Rajput poetess-saint. The New York Times called it ‘ remarkable in the way it combined Indian legend with the sophistication of Western total theatre … [it] has something of the quality of a dream ritual’ . 9 Jakhoo Hill, the third play in this series, is set in the aut umn of 1962 in Shimla. It examines a number of themes— the changing social order with the rise of a new middle class, the incestuous obsessions of an ageing uncle, the hold of Indian mothers on their sons, and the eventual betrayal of sexual love. This is a book that both the general reader and the theatre buff would love to read and possess. Printed Pages: 208. 013926
