1 B. Sambasiva Prasad (Ed.) & Sudhir Kakar (Frwd)
Consciousness, Gandhi and Yoga: An Interdisciplinary, East-West Odyssey of K. Ramakrishna Rao
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 812460715X / 9788124607152; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Consciousnes, Gandhi and Yoga explores the cross-cultural and interdisciplinary Odyssey of K. Ramakrishna Rao spanning over a period of sixty years. Rao's journey is a voyage of discovery of hidden treasures of consciousness in both the East and the West; and this volume is an authoritative sourcebook detailing and discussing that voyage by scholars from around the world. We find here reflections on the extensive contributions of K.R. Rao which contain a rare, and in some ways unique, blend of theory and empirical research, leadership and scholarship, and classical and contemp-orary perspectives of Eastern and Western thoughts in a trans-disciplinary setting. Ramakrishna Rao has carried out extensive empirical research collecting data on hidden human potentials and is engaged in providing for them appropriate conceptual framework and theoretical base in cross-cultural consciousness studies. Further, he creatively anchors Gandhian thought and practices to the current developments in consciousness studies. The authors include Prof. Rao's colleagues and contemporaries scattered around the globe and experts in consciousness studies, Gandhian thought, Yoga and parapsychology. They provide interesting insights into the life and work of Prof. Ramakrishna Rao. The present volume is offered as an academic tribute as Prof. Rao crosses the 80th milestone in life's journey and completes sixty years of professional engagement as a teacher and researcher.Printed Pages: 392. 100447

2 Sudhir Kakar
Culture and Psyche: Selected Essays
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2003; 0195665988 / 9780195665987; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This book is a collection of Sudhir Kakar's essays on cultural psychology, a discipline, which studies the interplay of culture and individual psyches. Professor Kakar draws upon his rich experience as a practising psychoanalyst and attempts a study of Indian identity through sources as diverse as case studies, Indian myths and legends, and popular cinema. While most of these essays have earlier been published in leasing international journals, the book also contains two that have been written specifically for this volume. With these essays the author continues his project, begun with the publication of the Inner World (OUP, 1978), of exploring and understanding the Indian psyche through a cultural and psychoanalytic investigation if ideas concerning identity and sexuality.

3 Sudhir Kakar (Ed.)
Indian Love Stories
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174362797 / 9788174362797; Softcover; New; 
An anthology of contemporary love stories that depicts how disgust can be as much part of erotic love as violence, physical and mental.Disgust can be as much part of erotic love as violence, although the evocation of disgust has rarely reached the extremes portrayed in the fiction of Marquis de Sade. In de Sade's stories, erotic unions are routinely preceded, accompanied or followed by the smearing and eating of faeces, drinking of or bathing in urine, the licking of spit and vomit, a revelling in bodily odours -all in the service of heightening the excitement of erotic union. Violence, too, physical or mental, is part of many contemporary depictions of love. (From the author's Introduction. Printed Pages: 128. 108539

6 Sudhir Kakar
Mira and the Mahatma
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 067005805X / 9780670058051; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
It is 1925 and India's struggle for independence is in disarray, impeded by factionalism among its leaders and rising incidents of communal disharmony across the country. Meanwhile, having withdrawn himself from active politics, the Mahatma is in the Sabarmati ashram in Gujarat, immersed in what he considers the most important undertaking of his life: the creation of an ideal community that is dedicated to the highest standards of self-discipline, tolerance and austerity. Into this world comes Madeline Slade, the daughter of a British admiral, who has set her heart on being Bapu's greatest disciple. Thus begins an extraordinary association between two individuals driven by distinct passions. For Gandhi, true spirituality lies in `self-rule'—a mastery of the self that liberates the being from all forms of craving, physical and emotional—and total dedication to practical work in service of society; Mira, as Gandhi renames Madeline, believes that the path to ultimate truth and perfection is complete surrender to the human embodiment of the Eternal Spirit, and this she perceives in Gandhi himself. It is not long before Mira's all-consuming desire to serve Bapu translates into a desperate need to be close to him at all times and clashes head on with the exacting moral and spiritual codes he has laid down for himself and those around him. And as the self-doubting Mahatma, seeking to distance himself from Mira yet loath to let go of her love, wrestles with his inner phantoms, Mira's life begins to take another dramatic turn... In his bold, fictionalized exploration of this complex and tumultuous relationship, Sudhir Kakar displays once again his skill at handling delicate material with remarkable sensitivity, instinctive empathy and high imagination.
