Baroque India: The Neo-Roman Religious Architecture of South Asia (A Global Stylistic Survey)
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8173051615 / 9788173051616; Hardcover; New; New; 
Baroque India is the fruit of over forty years of research and is the work of one professionally trained in the history of Indian art (Hindu, Buddhist and Jain). In addition, he is the author of a survey of Islamic architecture worldwide, which includes, of course, the Indo-Islamic traditions. It is his belief that Indian Baroque-or, more correctly, Indian Neo­ Roman -cannot be properly appreciated without an understanding of the architectural styles that preceded it on the subcontinent, and which exercised a significant impact on it.In so doing, the author has tried to outline a consistent aesthetic theory of Neo­ Roman, to portray its five major modes - Renaissance, Mannerism, Baroque, Rococo and Neoclassicism - as expressions of the Neo-Roman essence, immanently developing, in the indicated sequence, one from the other, and pullulating a rich variety of spatial themes that both display a marked originality and manifest a capacity for assimilating the spatial nuances of the other architectural styles.Printed Pages: 101639

Baroque India: The Neo-Romen Religious Architecture of South Asia: A Global Stylistic Survey
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8173051615 / 9788173051616; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
"Baroque India is the fruit of over 40 years of research, and is the work of one professionally trained in the history of Indian art (Hindu, Buddhist and Jain). In addition, he is the author of a survey of Islamic architecture world-wide, which includes, of course, the Indo-Islamic traditions. It is his belief that Indian Baroque--or, more correctly, Indian Neo-Roman--cannot be properly appreciated without an understanding of the architectural styles that preceded it on the subcontinent, and which exercised a significant impact on it. To produce the book the author not only visited the various sites which contain the monuments of Indian Neo-Roman, but has travelled as an architectural pilgrim over much of the Neo-Roman world, in Europe and the Americas. He has also familiarized himself with the art-historical theories on the various styles of architecture, in particular, the Neo-Roman. He has thus prepared himself to contemplate Baroque India's contribution against the Neo-Roman background. In consequence, the method adopted in this book has been that of summarily describing the distinctive spatial modalities of the various Neo-Roman styles, as reflected in their major monuments, especially the styles which impacted on India: a method that facilitates the discernment of the specific Indian contribution to Neo-Roman taken as a whole. In so doing, the author has tried to outline a consistent aesthetic theory of Neo-Roman, to portray its five major modes--Renaissance, Mannerism, Baroque, Rococo and Neoclassicism--as expressions of the Neo-Roman essence, immanently developing, in the indicated sequence, one from the other, and pullulating a rich variety of spatial themes that both display a marked originality and manifest a capacity for assimilating the spatial nuances of the other architectural styles. This theory, he believes, has enabled him to distinguish the originality of Indian Neo-Roman, and describe what it has absorbed from the subcontinent's Indian and Indo-Islamic styles, while integrating the absorbed material into its Neo-Roman substance."Printed Pages: 518 with 67 figures & 217 halftone illustrations. 100171

Folk Songs of Goa: Mando-Dulpods and Deknnis (Song of Goa, no.3)
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8173052808 / 9788173052804; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Konkani Song, of which Goan Song is the preeminent branch, is a treasury of the traditional music of the Indian subcontinent. It has at least 35 types, monophonic and harmonic, the former prevalent before the Portuguese brought Western music into India, and the latter, consequent to the Western impact. It was in Goa that Indian musicians first began to compose in Western musical forms, incorporating into them motifs and nuances of their own immemorial tradition. Among these 35 types four were created to accompany social dancing: the Mando, the Mando-dulpod, the Dulpod, and the Deknni. The Mando, the finest creation of Goan Song, is a slow verse-and-refrain composition, in six-four time, dealing with love, tragedy and contemporary events, both social and political. Aryan Books International has published two volumes on the Mando, entitled, Song of Goa, vol. 1: Mandos of Yearning (2000); and vol. 2: Mandos of Union and Lamentation (2003).While the Mando is an art song, the remaining three types represent Goan folk song. The Mando-dulpod is a slower variety of the Dulpod (or a quicker sort of Mando), also in six-four time, facilitating the transition from the slow rhythm of the Mando to the quicker one of the Dulpod. The Dulpod itself, in six-eight time, is typically descriptive of everyday life in traditional Goa, particularly that of the Christians. The Deknni ("song of the Deccan" ?) is a song imitating Hindu music in the musical idiom current among the Christians, in two-four or six-eight time, descriptive mostly of Hindu life, with special attention given to the temple dancers. The present volume contains examples of the Mando-dulpod and the Deknni. Hopefully a future volume will be devoted to the Dulpod.Printed Page: 112. 100280

Song of Goa: Mandos of Union and Lamentation
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8173052476 / 9788173052477; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Konkani Song, of which Goan Song is a pre-eminent branch, is a treasury of the traditional music of the Indian subcontinent. Its 35 types include the monophonic and harmonic varieties, the former prevalent before the Portuguese brought Western music into India, and the latter, consequent to the Western impact. It was in Goa that Indian musicians first began to compose in Western musical forms, incorporating into them motifs and nuances of their own immemorial tradition. Among the 35 types figures the Mando, a dance song typically of quatrains, often having appended choruses, set in six­four time. Its main themes are love and events, the latter social and political in nature. But its favorite theme is love, oriented toward marriage, where the lover yearns for union with his beloved, achieves it, or laments his failure to realize it. The melody of the Mando is uniformly melancholic, but the text scintillates with luminous imagery, as of suns, stars, flowers and diamonds. As a dance, the Mando, India's ballo nobile, was the last aristocratic dance created anywhere. Printed Pages: 198. 100279

Song of Goa: Mandos of Yearning
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8173051666 / 9788173051661; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Konkani song, or which Goan song is a preeminent branch, is a treasury of the traditional music of the Indian subcontinent, containing as many as 34 identifiable types of song. They include the monophonic and harmonic varieties, the former in existence before the Portuguese brought western music into India, and the latter, consequent on the western impact. It was in Goa that Indian musicians first began to compose in western musical forms, incorporating into them motifs and nuances of their own immemorial tradition. "Among the 34 types figures the Mando, a dance song typically consisting of quatrains, frequently having appended choruses, set in six-four time. Its main themes are love and events (fobro), the latter social and political in nature. But its favorite theme is love, oriented toward marriage, where the lover yearns for union with his beloved, achieves that union, or laments at his failure to realize it. The love Mandos are thus of three types: yearning (utrike, the theme of this book), union (ekvott) and lamentation (villap). The melody of the Mando is uniformly melancholic, but it scintillates with luminous imagery, as of suns, stars, flowers and diamonds. The Mando evidently originated in the 1830s, but its period of high achievement extends from around 1870 to 1950. It was given expression to by numerous composers, of which four are particularly remarkable: Paulo Milagres Silva (1855-1931), Arnaldo de Menezes (1863-1917), Gizelino Rebelo (1875-1931) and Torquato de Figueiredo (1876-1948). As a dance the Mando, India's ballo nobile, was the last aristocratic social dance created anywhere."Goans not only initiated the westernization of Indian music, but from the late 19th century, also pioneered in Indian ethnomusicology, providing a model for the preservation and interpretation of the rich folk music of India. The present work aspires to represent that model. Printed Pages: 244. 100278
