Book Excerpt :

Blending diverse genre elements, the book offers an innovative narrative structure to voice the fears and warnings of an apocalyptic end caused by the thoughtless destructions of nature. Interfusion of thrilling adventures in the forest, tales of romantic dalliances, passionate depiction of the splendors of nature and the fine display of the local milieu makes the otherwise serious theme of the book an irresistible read. The book poses an unswerving witness of the author of an era in the city of Guwahati and the foreboding dangers that lurks on its people. The ceaseless developments done at the costs of the forests, the hills and the wet-lands are turning us the helpless witness to the clashes of the forest, man and the city. Bringing within its purview the various ecological concerns combined with the callous, thoughtless actions of the political leaders, corrupt government official and the ignorance and carelessness of common people, the book traces all the nemeses that lead to the annihilation of the ecological balance. The emotional fervor, the personal appeal, the tiny special narratives within the bigger framework of the book, the swiping panorama of the city and the beckoning to a nostalgic past of a, bygone green era of the narrator gives the book its distinctive flavor.

Book Short Summary:

Masira Singh considers herself, an ordinary teenager with an ordinary life until bizarre dreams and unexplainable chills begin plaguing her. As her dreams lead her into a mountain village where she is greeted by a boy, a series of unimaginable incidents slowly begin to turn her life upside down. While she attempts to learn why she is being tested, Masira is left with agonizing choices. Unsure of her place in the giant scheme of things she seeks help, only to find herself alone in a place where even her best friend refuses to trust her. In a battle between the logical and the probable; between the established and the intuited, Masira was torn, alone and in danger. She must determine if she was making the right choices or was simply being misled only to put herself and those she loves in danger by taking a risky course. But how will she decide where her duty lies, especially when everything is at stake and no one believes her story? In this shadowy tale, an ordinary teenager has to make extraordinary choices in a challenging battle between reality and a dream world to learn the truth, before it is too late.

Book Short Summary:

The issue of saints is a difficult and complicated problem in Buddhology. In this magisterial work, Ray offers the first comprehensive examination of the figure of the Buddhist saint in a wide range of Indian Buddhist evidence. Drawing on an extensive variety of sources, Ray seeks to identify the "classical type" of the Buddhist saint, as it provides the presupposition for, and informs, the different major Buddhist saintly types and subtypes. Discussing the nature, dynamics, and history of Buddhist hagiography, he surveys the ascetic codes, conventions and traditions of Buddhist saints, and the cults both of living saints and of those who have "passed beyond." Ray traces the role of the saints in Indian Buddhist history, examining the beginnings of Buddhism and the origin of Mahayana Buddhism.

Book Short Summary:

Diploma Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Earth Science / Geography - General, Basics, grade: 79%, Jadavpur University, course: Post Graduate Diploma in Remote Sensing and GIS, language: English, abstract: In the ancient Hindu literatures Ramayana, Mahabharata and several Puranas two spiritually significant forests were mentioned namely Naimisharanya in the northern India and Dandakaranya in the south central India. The word Dandakaranya is formed by joining the two separate words Dandaka and Aranya according to a rule of Sanskrit grammar. Aranya means a forest and Dandaka means punishment and Dandakaranya means Forest of Punishment. It was described in Hindu mythology that Dandakaranya region was extended from Vindhya hill range, Narmada river and Mahanadi river in the north to Godavari river (in some mythology Krishna river) in the south, from Mahendragiri mountains of Eastern Ghat hills in the east to Wardha river in the west. Near about the beginning of Treta yuga Dandaka was a country ruled by a king named Danda who was the youngest son of the legendary king Ikshvaku, son of Manu Vaivasvata and founder of the Solar Dynasty of kings. Ikshvaku, finding Danda a great fool and the most useless, banished him to this region because he was highly anxious of his actions. Ikshvaku got a capital city built for him from where Danda ruled. But Danda continued to lead a voluptuous life. Danda’s kulaguru (royal guru) was Shukracharya who lived in an ashram located in the jungle surrounding Dandaka kingdom. Once, when Shukracharya was away, Danda visited the ashram and molested Shukracharya’s daughter Araja, then left the ashram leaving Araja in trauma. When Shukracharya returned, Araja told the entire incident to him. This made Shukracharya very angry and he cursed Danda: "In 7 days, you and your kingdom, all your people and army, shall die. For a hundred yojanas around your city, all life will be consumed by a rain of dust and death shall rule this sinner’s kingdom." Things happened as per the curse. All life was extinguished. Danda perished. Dandaka kingdom was laid waste; in consequence the kingdom became Dandakaranya - the forest of punishment, a region of dense wild forest through which even sunlight did not pass. Later, Dandakaranya became part of colonial state of Lanka under the reign of Ravana. Khara, a man-eating rakshasa (demon) and younger brother of Ravana was governor of the Dandakaranya province. Dandakaranya became a stronghold of the Rakshasa (demon) and then Dandakaranya was called the forest of demons. In the epic Ramayana, many of the events described in Aranya Kanda were happed in Dandakaranya.

Book Short Summary:

Aranya and Ishan are neighbours. They are in the autumn of their lives. She is impulsive, anarchic and fiercely feminist. He is gentle, sensitive, orderly and believes in the institution of family, even though he has no one to call his own. Aranya thinks about the many Delhis, from the older one glimmering on the other side of the river to the trans-Yamuna residential complex where she lives now. Ishan is deeply spiritual and draws strength from his Danish guide in the Himalayas. The two of them banter about time, existentialism, changing landscapes, food, music and human nature. They think aloud about aeging and death, and wonder living the way they do amounts to biding time. Krishna Sobti's Samay Sargam is a novel about sharing solitudes and growing old in a city that is at once keenly private and aggressively collective. This is as much a portrait of the changing times as it the story of a beautiful romance that thrives on companionship.

Book Short Summary:

Agroforestry in Karnataka – A Golden Opportunity for Green Growth highlights various aspects of agroforestry – a system of introduction, or rather reintroduction, of trees in and around agricultural lands in order to restore the ancient, organic relationship that existed between forest and agriculture. The book traces the evolution of agroforestry in the state of Karnataka in India and recounts the strides that have been made in this direction in the recent years. It dwells upon the multifarious beneficial effects of agroforestry on forest conservation, soil and water conservation, and development of agriculture, horticulture, sericulture, animal husbandry, apiculture, etc. Although agroforestry is seen as a very pragmatic step to increase the forest or tree cover, its benefits go far beyond: it has the potential of transforming the entire rural/agrarian landscape in terms of economic, ecological and environmental development. It is also likely to be the most befitting response to the challenges posed by climate change. It is difficult to visualize a climate-smart agricultural system without trees having been accorded a complementary but important role in it. In the coming days, agroforestry may hold the key to an overarching development in the agricultural sector, more particularly in the vast and expanding parched regions, where signs of desertification, drought, poverty, hunger and death are becoming increasingly ominous.

El món dels éssers mitològics és ple de misteri i de màgia. Has sentit mai a parlar d'Anansi, l'aranya transformista de l'Àfrica occidental? O del Tanuki, una espècie de gos amable però entremaliat del folklore japonès? Amb aquesta enciclopèdia com a guia, emprendràs un viatge màgic en què coneixeràs multitud de criatures fabuloses i llegendes d'arreu del món. Els mites i les llegendes són antigues històries tradicionals que han anat passant d'una persona a l'altra, sovint generació rere generació. Aquestes narracions expliquen històries d'éssers màgics i misteriosos que viuen entre nosaltres. Alguns d'aquests éssers es podrien confondre amb animals comuns com les llebres, els cavalls i els esquirols, però a vegades es delaten quan parlen, canvien de forma, llancen encanteris o, de sobte, creixen fins a aconseguir una dimensió gegant. D'altres són d'aparença fantàstica i és més fàcil descobrir-los, per exemple, els dracs i els unicorns, el basilisc amb el seu verí mortal o la immensa serp irisada, que no se separa de l'aigua. Per què s'expliquen aquestes històries? Algunes ens adverteixen de criatures terrorífiques com el Grootslang, meitat serp meitat elefant, mentre que altres simplement ens entretenen. Sovint aquestes interessants històries ajuden a explicar com les coses han arribat a ser el que són ara: com l'ocell del tro crea les tempestes o com Anansi, el déu aranya, va transmetre les històries als éssers humans.

Book Short Summary:

Discussions on globalization now routinely focus on the economic impact of developing countries in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, the former Soviet Union and Latin America. Only twenty-five years ago, many developing countries were largely closed societies. Today, the growing power of “emerging markets” is reordering the geopolitical landscape. On a purchasing power parity basis, emerging economies now constitute half of the world’s economic activity. Financial markets too are seeing growing integration: Asia now accounts for 1/3 of world stock markets, more than double that of just 15 years ago. Given current trajectories, most economists predict that China and India alone will account for half of global output by 2050 (almost a complete return to their positions prior to the Industrial Revolution). How is higher education shaping and being shaped by these massive tectonic shifts? As education rises as a geopolitical priority, it has converged with discussions on economic policy and a global labor market. As part of the Routledge Studies in Emerging Societies series, this edited collection focuses on the globalization of higher education, particularly the increasing symbiosis between advanced and developing countries. Bringing together senior scholars, journalists, and practitioners from around the world, this collection explores the relatively new and changing higher education landscape.

Book Short Summary:

As the title indicates, this book is a critical study of an Indian epic, ëThe Ramayanaí. It proceeds in the same order as that of Sanskrit original consisting of : Bala kanda, Ayodhya kanda, Aranya kanda, Kishkindha kanda, Sundara kanda, Yuddha kanda and Uttara kanda. While Valmikiís Ramayana is composed of about 24,000 slokas (verses), ëRamayana the Poisonous Treeí consists of 16 stories, long and short, accompanied by 11 ëlinksí (narratives that ëlinkí the stories) and 504 foot-notes that show evidence from the Sanskrit original in support of the critique. Besides the main components of the text, this book has a long ëPrefaceí discussing the social essence of the epic in the context of history of evolution of human society from the ancient times to the modern times. The book also offers a critical review of the works of ësome earlier critics of Ramayanaí. The authoress describes Ramayana as a Poisonous Tree because it defends the autocratic rule of the kings against the people, their imperial expansion by invading other weak kingdoms, exploitation of the poor by the rich, oppression of lower castes by upper castes, aggression of the civilized non-tribal communities against primitive tribal communities, male chauvinism against women, superstitious beliefs against the rational thinking, fathersí domination over sons, elder brothersí superiority over younger brothers and so on. She substantiated her arguments by providing hundreds of foot notes from the Sanskrit original. She characterizes the culture of Ramayana as predominantly ëfeudalí in nature with an admixture of remnants of primitive ëtribalí culture. The book, it is hoped, will be of interest to both academic and non-academic circles. It is relevant to the students, teachers and researchers who are connected with such disciplines as South Asian Studies, Cultural Studies, Comparative Literature, Comparative Religions, Indology, Literary Criticism and so on. It is also relevant to the social and political activists who would like to disseminate ëprogressiveí ideas among the people who are subjected to various forms of inequality: Class, Caste, Gender, Race, Ethnicity. Ranganayakamma (born 1939) is a writer of novels, stories and essays in Telugu. She has published about 60 books.

Book Short Summary:

This book analyses the role of women in the films of one of the leading filmmakers of the ‘Third World’ in the 1950s, Satyajit Ray, a national icon in filmmaking in India. The book explores the portrayal of women in the context of the creation of national culture after India became independent. Gender issues were very important to India under Jawaharlal Nehru in the 1950s – with the enactment of inheritance and divorce laws. Ray’s portrayal of women and his films anticipate much of the theorizing of later-day feminism. This book analyses cinematic texts with special reference to the women characters using feminist film theory and representation along with a study of the socio-political and economic conditions pertinent to the times – both relevant to the film’s making and its setting. The primary texts studied are films spanning over four decades from Pather Panchali (1955) to his last trilogy and are based on a categorization of the broad feminine ‘types’ represented in the films – based on the socio-political situations in which they are placed – and their relationships with the other characters present. Ray’s portrayal of women has an enormous bearing on our understanding of how modern India evolved in the Nehru era and after, and this book explore just that: the place of the woman as it is and should be in a young nation encumbered by patriarchy. Gendered Modernity and Indian Cinema will be of interest to academics in the field of World cinema, Indian and Bengali cinema, Film Studies as well as Gender Studies and South Asian culture and society.
