4 Upendra Thakur
On Karttikeya
Chaukhamba Oriental Studies/Chaukhamba Orientalia; Delhi, India; 1981; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The present monograph contains a brief study of the various facets of Karttikeya Cult which was widely practised throughout India in early periods and is, even now, quite popular in South India. Though known by various names in early literature, Karttikeya does not seem to have been known directly to the Vedas. He is, however, included in the Vedic divinities represented in the form of Vedic symbols, by the name of Kumara who is described as the wonderful hero and leader of the divine army. In the present work, efforts have been made to trace the origin and development of the cult of Karttikeya, materials for which have been gleaned from literature, epigraphs, COINS and art-objects. In this connection it is interesting to note that this cult had, in the course of centuries, travelled far beyond the frontiers of India and made a remarkable impact on the religious life of the people in almost all the countries of the Asian continent. Among the gods, he symbolised vigour and prowess par- excellence and his decisive victory over the asuras accorded him a revered place among the gods of Hindu pantheon. A study of Hindu divinities worshipped in South-East Asia would show that Indian ideas and 'practices passed into those lands almost unchanged and were accepted in their totality.

The History of Suicide in India: An Introduction
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1963; 8121503809 / 9788121503808; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
There is no human phenomenon which is more baffling than Suicide. It has always puzzled and intrigued the thinking mind that man, in a moment of frenzy, should kill himself and in one stroke end that mighty dream of his-the life-which he has so selfishly built. To this day, there is not a single undivided opinion on suicide. Some have commended it: others have condemned it. Even our ancient seers and philosophers have taken sides on the issue. But suicide has continued unabated and so also its implications on society. Here is an illuminating book which has this unusual subject as the topic of its study and tackles it from every conceivable angle. In it, origins of suicide have been traced in history, both remote and recent; its religious manifestations have been discussed in detail; its modes, past and present, as current in various lands, have been outlines; views, for and against, have been presented and statistics quoted. More than all, it emphasises the need for positive action in India in planning and executing measures to curb the evil of self-annihilation. Printed Pages: 250 with 8 b/w illustrations. 002599
