1 Ilija Trojanow; Translated from the German By The Author with Ranjit Hoskote
Along the Ganga: To the Inner Shores of India
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0-1460-3165-1; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
From icy Gaumukh, the source of one of the world’s most celebrated rivers, Ilija Trojanow began a remarkable two-month journey: down the Himalayas, past the great cities of Allahabad, Varanasi and Patna, to Gangasagar, where the river meets the sea. Travelling by inflatable boat, on foot, by bus and overcrowded trains, he moved through landscapes where the past and the future, mythic imagination and hard reality come together, and in this book he recounts for us the stories that he heard and experienced during the journey. The glacier at Gaumukh is receding, he tells us: is it due to global warming or, as the Brahmavaivarta Purana foretells, is the Ganga going underground, having taken her share of sins, to await the next golden age? Has the demon Taraka taken over the earth again, he wonders, or will the Tehri Dam really bring succour to the lives of millions? As he observes and investigates, Trojanow also offers prayers to his ancestors, meets Naga sadhus at the Kumbh Mela, witnesses death ceremonies, and talks to engineers and activists with divergent views on how best to live with the Ganga. A travel book that is an unusual mix of reportage and storytelling, Along the Ganga is a vivid portrait not only of the mighty, sacred river but also of a deeply traditional as well as a vibrantly modern India.Printed Pages: 184. 039734

4 Ranjit Hoskote
The Dancer on the Horse: Reflections on the Art of Iranna GR
Mapin Publishing; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8188204927 / 9788188204922; Hardcover; New; New; 
Iranna G.R.’s art is thought to be a stylistic challenge to postmodernism, using instead the representative, idealistic and modernist language of contemporary Indian painting. This book is a meditation on the life and work of the artist, emphasizing the spirituality of the artist’s work and the importance of his Guru. Frequently Iranna depicts a solitary figure in an unreal landscape, and this has been interpreted by the author as a self-portrait of one who feels estranged from his context.The Dancer on the Horse refers to a self-portrait by this name. The dancer must maintain both his own logical plan and take into account the movement of the horse which is unpredictable. This balancing act is a metaphor for the artist’s obligation to find the appropriate relationship between the inner and outer realities and the private solace in the studio and the public space of the gallery. According to the author, Iranna is immensely successful in achieving this equilibrium. Printed Pages: 128 with 180 colour illustrations. 112008
