3 Manohar Singh Gill (M.S. Gill)
Himalayan Wonderland: Travels in Lahaul and Spiti
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2010; 0670084131 / 9780670084135; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In the summer of 1962, a restless young Indian administrator, Manohar Singh Gill, made an arduous journey from the north Indian plains to the farthest reaches of the Indian Himalayas—the Lahaul and Spiti valleys—and spent a year there, living and working amongst the people. Gill went on to a distinguished career in the civil services and government, but his experience of the relentless beauty of these spectacular Himalayan deserts and the generosity of the people of this land changed him for life. Part memoir, part travel book and part anthropology, Himalayan Wonderland is a witty, opinionated account of Gill’s lifelong affair with this extraordinary region. The book, however, is much more than one man’s account of a place … it is a hopeful and enlightening view of the practice of administration and the joy of working with people. Illustrated with more than forty photographs taken by Gill himself, and including detailed contour maps and information on trekking routes in Lahaul and Spiti, this is a remarkably illuminating and accessible account of this faraway land—from the 1960s, when few knew about the place, to today’s unpredictable world of receding glaciers and lost cultures. Printed Pages: 296 with 8 colour and 16 b/w illustrations. 031820

5 K.P.S. Gill (Intro.)
Most Wanted: Profiles of Terror
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 817436207X / 9788174362070; Softcover; New; 
Terrorism is often referred to as India's threat number one. Indeed, the country has seen serious assaults on its democratic institutions, including on the Red Fort and Parliament House; both symbols of independent, democratic India. Two of her most protected Prime Ministers - Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi - have been assassinated. Punjab chief minister Beant Singh was blown to pieces, while others like Farooq Abdullah in Jammu and Kashmir and Prafulla Kumar Mahanta in far away Assam have had narrow escapes. Terrorism has spread its tentacles far and wide, be it through the groups operating in Kashmir in north India or the ULFA in the northeast or even the LTTE, whose lethal capabilities have ensured that J. Jayalalitha retains tight security irrespective of whether she is in power. Planes have been hijacked and blown up, foreigners kidnapped and killed and vital installations bombed. The lethal Chinese assault rifle has often given way to improvised explosive devices that have been used to blow up bridges and army convoys; just as suicide bombers have now raised the threat of terrorism to alarming proportions. The Indian government has its own list of twenty 'Most Wanted'terrorists whose extradition it is seeking from Pakistan. This book profiles six militants who through their respective organizations hold out the maximum threat to India's unity and integrity. Interestingly, five of the six - with the exception of Paresh Barua, commander in chief of ULFA - are operating from outside the country's geographical boundaries. Some, like Professor Hafiz Saeed, the Lashkar-e-Taiba chief, have been never even set foot on Indian soil but yet control and command one of the most lethal terrorist outfits. Well-known counter terrorism expert KPS Gill's introduction gives an insightful overview, while the other authors have profiled leaders of six important militant organizations to provide rich, often frightening details of their modus operandi. The six are 'most wanted'not only because of their past activities, but also because of the threat they continue to pose. Printed Pages: 144. 108552

The Punjab Story
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8174363319 / 9788174363312; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 
6th June, 1984: The Indian Army storms the Golden Temple in Amritsar. Called Operation Bluestar, the historic and unprecedented event ended the growing spectre of terrorism perpetrated by the extremist Sikh leader Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale and his followers once and for all. But it left in its wake unsolved political questions that continued to threaten Punjab’s stability for years to come. How, in a brief span of three years, did India’s dynamic frontier State become a national problem? Who was to blame: the Central Government for allowing the crisis to drift despite warnings, or the long-drawn-out Akali agitation, or the notorious gang of militants who transformed a holy shrine into a sanctuary for terrorists? First published two months after Operation Bluestar, The Punjab Story pieces together the complex Punjab jigsaw through the eyes of some of India’s most eminent public figures and journalists. Writing with the passion and conviction of those who were involved with the drama, they present a wide-ranging perspective on the past, present and future of the Punjab tangle, the truth of many of their conclusions having been borne out by time.
