Living surrounded by violence, we have probably become immune to its impact and substituted the civilized culture with what may be called a “culture of violence” – terrorism, conflicts, domestic, communal and gender violence, violence in its psychological and physical forms, socio-economic injustice, systemic, state and institutionalized violence, rape, arson, killings. You just name it and you see it in its myriad manifestations, diverse human contexts and various dehumanizing forms. Violence signifies ‘force’ as well as ‘violation’. Over the past several decades, due to the rap... View more info

Tagore-Nama explores de novo some of the less chartered domains of Tagore’s plays, poems and rhymes. In the genre of symbolic drama, the exploration areas are the absence of hero in the play; death used not as termination but starting point in life and action; Tagore’s terpsichorean persona; and their overall semiotics. The plays analysed are: Sharadotsav (1908), Raja (1912), Dakghar (1912), Achalayatan (1912), Falgunee (1916), Muktadhara (1922), Rakta Karabi (1924), Natir Puja (1926), Kaler Yatra (1932), Tasher Desh (1933), and among dance-dramas, Shapmochan (1931), Chitrangada (1936), Ch...

Janakiharana of Kumaradasa is the first Sanskrit Mahakavya, so far as the extant literature goes, to deal solely with the whole of the Ramayana-story. Its further interest is that it was produced in Ceylon, showing thereby the wider world over which Sanskrit had its sway. After manuscripts of the full text of the poem in twenty cantos had to come to light in South India, what is now presented was the first systematic and critical study to be undertaken to the author and the text and its position vis-a-vis other Mahakavyas. In addition to the above study and the critical edition of the cantos ... View more info

Development has been the dominant theme of the international discourse in the decades following the second world war. It has been a search rather than an achieved goal a continued quest for better quality of life for the deprived and the disadvantaged sections of the population. At the time of independence India made a tryst with destiny and pledged to have a society free from poverty, ignorance and disease. To what extent we have been able to redeem our pledge or translate our vision into reality. The grim reality is that even today thirty-five per cent of the population is below the poverty ...

This book deals with the functioning manifested by Elected Women Representatives (EWRs) on Gender Issues in Grassroots Governance. The study shows that indicators of women functions range from raising consciousness of women issues to changing institutional structures and processes and influencing the governance discourse itself. But they have to perform all these functions amidst several hurdles and problems. The expectations on women politicians are higher; they do not necessarily do so and cannot, because they do not have equal access and control as do men to the means for political particip...

About the Book A history of English literature is a chronological account of the books which have been written in the English language and their authors. Since literature as a whole grows and changes from generation to generation, in tracing this growth, history must show the place which each writer occupies in it, and also his relation with those who went before and those who came after him. Every great writer brings some absolutely new thing into what he writes, and his work bears its own special hallmark. A writer of exceptionally powerful personality is certain to stamp his impress upon hi... View more info
