Book Excerpt :

A narrative that's shaped like a fable, but in which we recognize the various features of life in India today' - Amit Chaudhuri 'An unusual and readable chronicle of an abstract Poet's journey, veering from the salacious to the sacred' - Romesh Gunesekera. The human self has come before religion, nations and boundaries - what is the self? This is the question. The poet, just sixteen, moves to a new city with his recently divorced mother. It is a new beginning; there is the promise of a new life away from endless domestic squabbles. But ghosts of the past still linger... The poet joins college, meets his first love, his sweetheart, makes new friends - through his relationships, separations, and experiences we enter his world. Thoughtful, sensitive, observant, he is not one who shies away from life. He journeys into different spaces, both in the physical world and within the realm of thoughts. His relentless efforts are to know and to understand ideas - his own and those of the thinkers of the past. There are moments of confusion, contemplation, ennui, ecstasy, happiness, and hidden amidst them lie little nuggets of truth and those rare moments of epiphany. But epiphany knows no time and place, it can come knocking anywhere, at any moment - be it on the balcony of a hotel in Benares or in the squalid room of a prostitute. Anatomy of Life is an engaging contemporary story of urban experience and a fascinating journey of discovery.

Book Short Summary:

Life in a Spacesuit presents a holistic view of the human body as a container of multiple universes, all interacting, and interpenetrating - a context that unites the premises of quantum physics and Qabala, and honors the sacred traditions of mysticism and science. The visionary work of Lewis Thomas, James Lovelock, Wilhelm Reich, and Fred Alan Wolf brought the body, and the Universe in which it lives to new dimensions of understanding. Using the image of an astronaut's spacesuit as a container, the early chapters begin with a description of the microcosmic realm of atoms and energy exchange, the smallest, measureable level of magnification contained within our spacesuit. The atomic level expands into a realm of cooperative beings called cells - or as I like to think of them, cell people: once-unicellular beings who expanded into a cooperative realm of organs and systems. Middle chapters describe our spacesuit's interactions with the planet. Our body's skin is a barrier from the outer world, whose atmosphere is itself a container of Life - replete with its blessings and curses. Yet we breathe in the out-breath of the plants, while we breathe out to feed the plants and return the blessings. We interact with the earth as it does with us. From the empirical worlds, the later chapters enter the realm of subtle energies and spirit, being reminded of the spiritual imperatives that accompany us on this planet. The writings of Paramahansa Yogananda proposed the complementarity of mysticism and science, and as an advocate of Yoga, viewed the body as a vehicle to know these subtle, spiritual realms through the energy and meditation methods offered by yoga, acupuncture, bodywork, chi kung, pranayama, prayer, dance, and countless other possibilities. Mysticism, theology and philosophy from East and West are presented alongside and complementary with the observations of empirical sciences. The body is viewed as a material metaphor of the subtle energy realm. Life in a Spacesuit

Book Short Summary:

“A substantive contribution to the history of ethnic strife and extreme violence” (The Wall Street Journal) and a cautionary examination of how genocide can take root at the local level—turning neighbors, friends, and family against one another—as seen through the eastern European border town of Buczacz during World War II. For more than four hundred years, the Eastern European border town of Buczacz—today part of Ukraine—was home to a highly diverse citizenry. It was here that Poles, Ukrainians, and Jews all lived side by side in relative harmony. Then came World War II, and three years later the entire Jewish population had been murdered by German and Ukrainian police, while Ukrainian nationalists eradicated Polish residents. In truth, though, this genocide didn’t happen so quickly. In Anatomy of a Genocide, Omer Bartov explains that ethnic cleansing doesn’t occur as is so often portrayed in popular history, with the quick ascent of a vitriolic political leader and the unleashing of military might. It begins in seeming peace, slowly and often unnoticed, the culmination of pent-up slights and grudges and indignities. The perpetrators aren’t just sociopathic soldiers. They are neighbors and friends and family. They are also middle-aged men who come from elsewhere, often with their wives and children and parents, and settle into a life of bourgeois comfort peppered with bouts of mass murder. For more than two decades Bartov, whose mother was raised in Buczacz, traveled extensively throughout the region, scouring archives and amassing thousands of documents rarely seen until now. He has also made use of hundreds of first-person testimonies by victims, perpetrators, collaborators, and rescuers. Anatomy of a Genocide profoundly changes our understanding of the social dynamics of mass killing and the nature of the Holocaust as a whole. Bartov’s book isn’t just an attempt to understand what happened in the past. It’s a warning of how it could happe
