...Guru Dutt was a master. See the way he handled the camera, the actors and the lighting...The black and white movies always managed to capture the mood. Maybe the fascination for Guru Dutt has lasted for two reasons: his early death and that he made genuinely interesting films. If you see Pyaasa or Sahib Bibi aur Ghulam, the subjects are contemporary, it's not like, "tabhi hota tha abhi nahin. (That was the old days, it never happens now.)" Guru Dutt's films were about human emotions and they don't change.' -- Farhan Akhtar, Film Director Nasreen Munni Kabir traces the life of this ... View more info

The captain of the Indian cricket team has to be a man of a different breed. Cricket evokes such tremendous passion among its followers in India that every action of the cricket team, particularly of its captain, is assessed under a microscope, and public reaction can swing from the highest praise to the harshest and often personal criticism. The position evokes respect, admiration and even a certain awe, just as it is also a hotbed of intrigues, jealousies and rivalries, often having nothing to do with the game itself. India's Captains is a comprehensive account of the various aspects of cri... View more info

The rise of Sonia Gandhi to leader of the venerable Congress party is one of the most remarkable stories of recent times, even in the unpredictable world of Indian politics. The story of how an apolitical housewife—who was dead set against the entrance of her husband, Rajiv Gandhi, into the political arena—emerged as an astute player of the game herself is one that has never been told. Adding to the enigma is her reserve—she has given very few interviews and remains a very private person. In Sonia: A Biography, journalist Rasheed Kidwai offers the first close look at the person and the ... View more info
