HARIVANSHA GATHA (Hindi)
The essence of Jinasena's "Harivansha Purana"
By Amrita Bharati
2004 220 x 142 mm 289 pp
81 263 1080 4 Hardcover Rs. 170

Acarya Jinasena's elegant Sanskrit kavya, "Harivansha Purana" is one of the finest examples of Jaina contribution to Sanskrit literature. Jinasena lived in the 8th century CE, and wrote his Harivansha Purana in 66 sargas, using different chandas.

This Purana, part of the Universal History of the Jainas, relates the life of the 22nd Tirthankara Neminatha, and the lives of his contemporaries, the Narayanas, Prati-Narayanas, Balbhadras, and the lives of the Mahabharata protagonists, the Kauravas and the Pandavas.

The perfect vitaraga of the Tirthankara is contrasted vividly with the temporal longings of the Cakravarti kings. The passion of Mahabharata is contrasted with the tranquility of the meditating Tirthankara.

A great epic, beautifully composed 1200 years ago, lucidly retold.

VADDARADHANA (Hindi)
By Bhrajishnu
Hindi tr. by TG Prabhakar Premi & Jayalalitha
2004 216 x 138 mm 192 pp
81 260 1063 0 Paperback Rs. 100.00

Bhrajishnu was a Digambara Jaina ascetic, who lived in the 9th century in Karnataka. He composed the Vaddaradhana, a collection of nineteen stories connected with devotion.

These stories, fine examples of old Kannada literature, tell us about the lives of Jaina monks and give intuitive insights into their minds. The stories qualify as literature, and are very readable. They also shed light on fundamental Jaina values, and the four Aradhanas of faith, knowledge, conduct and tapa, ascetic practice.

The protagonists are Jaina ascetics, and their interactions with the surrounding world is perceptively depicted. Written in an allegorical fashion, these tales tell us of the wisdom and the serene lives of the Jaina monks.

Light is thrown on many Jaina concepts, such as sallekhana, or voluntary death; and the four kinds of dhyana as described in the Jaina scriptures.

But what adds colour, richness, and depth to these stories are the lay characters, and one finds fascinating descriptions of village defense at times of civil war; the art of thievery; the widely held beliefs of the people in that era; and other varied topics! It is fine example of Kannada literature at its best, and a must-read for the savants of Indian literature as well as Jaina literature.

There are nineteen stories, and in the Kannada original, each story would start with a Prakrit gaha. The original Prakrit gaha is reprinted here, with its meaning given in modern Hindi.

The Hindi translation is competent and insightful. For the lay reader, the translators have also added a glossary of Jaina terms used in the book.

INDIAN PAPER MONEY, TheStandard Reference Guide to
By Kishore Jhunjhunwala
Currencies & Coins
Rs. 3000.00

This book endeovours to present thefascinating world of Indian Bank Notes. The history of Indian BankNotes dates to 1770, when the Bank of Hindoostan, a private banksituated at Calcutta issued its notes on premise of paper moneyprevalent in Engand. This book includes a comprehensive listing ofall Indian bank notes since that date.

The spectrum of the book covers notesissued by the semi-Government and Presidency Banks, which functioneduntil 1861. In that year the Government of India took the issue ofnotes in its own hands. In 1926 the India Security Press at Nasikbecame functional and took over the printing of notes from the Bankof England Press.

In 1935 the reserve Bank of India wasestablished and since that date it has been the chief currencyissuing authority and monetary agency for India.

This book deals with bank notes ofthis entire period and also with Indian bank notes sinceindependence. These include the specialised notes issued for the Gulfcountries and Haj pilgrims. However, it does not limit itself to theBritish issues and their successors. The scope of the book extendsbeyond, and covers the issues of Indo-Portuguese and Indo-Frenchterritories. The Cash Coupons the Indian princely states issued tocounteract the shortage of coins during World War ll. What's more,the coupons used by the prisoners of war interned in India, and otherprivate coupons have also have been included.

Oxford History ofArt

Indian Art
By Partha Mitter
Pounds Sterling 11.99

This lively new survey guides the reader through 2000 years of Indian art and architecture. A rich artistic tradition is fully explored through the Hindu, Buddhist, Islamic, colonial and contemporary period, incorporating discussion of modern Bangladesh and Pakistan, tribal artists and the decorative arts.

Combining a clear overview with much fascinating detail, Mitter succeeds in bringing to life the true diversity of Indian culture. The influence of Islam on the Mugal court, which produced the world- famous Taj Mahal and exquisite miniature paintings, is closely examined. More recently, he discusses the rise of female artists, the stunning architecture of Charles Correa and the vibrancy of the contemporary Indian art scene.

Partha Mitter is Professor of History of Art at Sussex University.

Australian Art
By Andrew Sayers
Pounds Sterling 12.99

This unique survey covers both Aboriginal art and that of European Australians, providing a revealing examination of the interaction between the two. Painting, bark art, photography, rock art, sculpture, and the decorative arts are all fully explored to present the rich texture of Australian art traditions.

Well- known artists including Margaret Preston, Rover Thomas, and Sidney Nolan are all discussed, as are the natural history illustrators, Aboriginal draughtsmen, and pastellists, whose work is only now being brought to light by new research. Taking the European colonisation of the continent as his starting point, Sayers highlights important issues concerning colonial art and women artists in this fascinating new story of Australian art.

Andrew Sayers is the Director of the National Portrait Gallery, Australia.

Classical Art from Greece toRome
By Mary Beard & John Henderson
Pounds Sterling 10.99

The stunning masterpieces of Ancient Greece and Rome are fundamental to the story of art in Western Culture and to the origins of art history. The expanding Greek world of Alexander the Great had an enormous impact on the Mediterranean superpower of Rome. Generals, rulers, and artists seized, imitated, and re-thought the glorious legacy of Greek painting and sculpture, culminating in the greatest art-collector the world had ever seen, the Roman emperor, Hadrian.

This stimulating new look at Classical art begins with the excavation of Pompeii and moves on to investigate the grandiose monuments of ancient tyrants and the sensual beauty of Apollo and Venus. Concluding with that most influential invention of all, the human portrait, this work highlights the rediscovery of Classical art in the modern world.

Both Mary Beard and John Henderson are Readers in Classics at Cambridge University.

Medieval Art
By Veronica Sekules
Pounds Sterling 10.99

This refreshing new look at Medieval art conveys a very real sense of the impact of art on everyday life in Europe from 1000 to1500. It examines the importance of art in the expression and dispersion of knowledge and ideas, including notions of the heroism and justice of war, and the dominance of Christianity.

The book highlights the attitudes and events specific to the sophisticated visual culture of the Middle Ages, and goes on to link the period with the Renaissance. This work disproves the commonly held views of Medieval art being primarily about church art, and successfully establishes the importance of art in all aspects of life in this period.

Veronica Sekules Is Head Of Education At The Sainsbury Centre, University Of East Anglia.

A CONCISE HISTORY OF INDIA(English)
A History of Modern India
By Barbara Metcalf and Thomas Metcalf
2002 215 x 140 344 pp 52 b/w plates and 4 maps
0 521 63974 3 Paperback Rs. 350.00

"Barbara Metcalf and Thomas Metcalf come together to to write a concise history of modern India. While early histories were often composed as handmaids of British imperialism or as products of emerging nationalist identities, this book challenges the notion that a continuous meaning can be applied to social categories such as 'caste', 'Hindu', 'Muslim', or even 'India'. The narrative focuses on the fundamentally political theme of the imaginative and institutional structures that successively changed and sustained both colonial and independent India. It also documents the social changes and the rich cultural life that were constituted in interaction with that political structure and vision. Earlier chapters focus on the period of Muslim dynasties that preceded colonial conquest, and the book concludes with the dramatic recent events of the 1990s, including economic change, religious nationalism and India's emergence as a nuclear power. Illustrations and quotations from historical sources are integral to the narrative."

Barbara D. Metcalf is a Professor in the Department of History, University of California, Davis.

Thomas R. Metcalf is Professor of History and Sarah Kailath Professor of India Studies at the University of California, Berkeley.

The study of disease commenced with the dawn of intellect. The cave man surely resorted to the plant kingdom as his therapeutical agents and remedial measures. There is no record available for the medicines used by primitive man. The knowledge of medicinal plants must have been accumulated over centuries. The ancient peoples of India were acquainted with medicinal herbs to a larger extent than the natives of any other country. The Indian materia medica consists of the Raja Nighantu, the Madanapala Nighantu and the Bhava Prakasha.

This work studies all the available India herbs and medicinal plants scientifically, and explains their uses. Also, a disease wise break up is given. The book is a must for any serious student of medicine, allopathic or ayurvedic.

MERI IKYAVAN KAVITAYEN
Poetry in Hindi by Atal Bihari Vajpayee
Ed. Dr. Chandrikaprasad Sharma
2003 220 x 140 mm 168 pp
81 7016 255 6 Hardback Rs. 60.00

India's former Prime Minister needs no introduction. His love for poetry is well known. This is a collection of his best verses. Edited by Dr. Sharma, it has genuine poetic value, which is why it has sold twenty editions in the space of nine years! (It was published first in June, 1995)

Some of these poems have been rendered by Jagjit Singh ji, and each poem captures a different mood of the writer. The 51 poems by Vajpayee have been divided into the following categories:

1. Anubhuuti ke Svar
2. Raashtriiyata ke Svar
3. Cunauti ke Svar
4. Vividh Svar

The book also has an appendix where a brief introduction to the poetic career of Vajpayee is given, and his poetry has been critically examined. Also, a short interview with Vajpayee is given, where the poet very frankly discusses his own poetry, and that of others. He also articulates his views on Hindi literature and contemporary Hindi writers.

A must read for all poetry lovers.

ABHYUDAYA in 2 volumes (Hindi)
Hindi Novel based on the Ramayana
By Dr. Narendra Kohli
2004 216 x 138 mm 1292 pp
81 284 0003 7 Softcover Volume One
81 284 0027 4 Softcover Volume Two
Rs. 400 for the set

Narendra Kohli took the entire material of the Ramayana and wrote a huge 1300 page novel "Abhyudaya" in four parts (now published in 2 volumes). This was perhaps the first novel in any language that dealt with the entire Ramayana. It is a novel and therefore must be contemporary, progressive, modern, and logic based. Its basic story line comes from the cultural tradition of India and therefore it portrays the higher values of life.

Abhyudaya shows the greatness of human kind, and the boundlessness of life. It frees the reader from all dilemmas of his intellect and traditional values. He got answers to his defiant questions, and solutions for his doubts. This book has been hugely welcomed has succeeded in changing the direction of Hindi novels.

Narendra Kohli is a novelist, short story writer, playwright, and satirist. Despite being all this, he is very different from his contemporary authors. His contributions towards enrichment of literature and society's progress are obvious. He has written some famous tales, but he is truly original; he is modern, but does not simply follow the west; he reaches for the roots of Indian-ness, but he is not old school.

A great novel, worth reading time and again.

His school of method acting was popularised by some of the greatest Hollywood Stars.

His books have, for the first time, been translated into Hindi. We are proud to sell them.

The study of disease commenced with the dawn of intellect. The cave man surely resorted to the plant kingdom as his therapeutical agents and remedial measures. There is no record available for the medicines used by primitive man. The knowledge of medicinal plants must have been accumulated over centuries. The ancient peoples of India were acquainted with medicinal herbs to a larger extent than the natives of any other country. The Indian materia medica consists of the Raja Nighantu, the Madanapala Nighantu and the Bhava Prakasha.

This work studies all the availableIndia herbs and medicinal plants scientifically, and explains theiruses. Also, a disease wise break up is given. The book is a must forany serious student of medicine, allopathic or ayurvedic.

From the 6th to the 15th century, Apabhramsa has been predominantly, the lingua franca of India. For about 900 years, Apabhramsa was the principal langauge in many regions of India. Many modern Indian langauges like Hindi, Guajrati, Marathi, Bengali, etc. owe their origin to Apabhramsa.

This Dictionary is the first work of its kind on Apabhramsa taking into account the science of words and etymological, grammatical and linguistic aspects of Apabhramsa. Light is also shed on the intricacies of Apabhramsa grammar, the innnate difficulties in deciding the gender of certain words, common usages illustrate multiple meanings of words. Etymological roots are traced, the alphabet is discussed. Various references add to the reliability of the meanings, and citations are liberally used.

This dictionary is highly useful for the linguistics scholar as well as the Jaina scholar.

Dr. Nareshkumar is a celebrated Kosakara, and specialises in vyutpatti, kosa vijñana and has also edited the Hindi Vyutpatti Kosa. He is a recognised expert in Hindi, Sanskrit and Apabhramsa.

SANSKRIT - WORTERBUCH IN KURRZERERFASSUNG (Sanskrit - German)

Review:Verily, the SANSKRIT - WORTERBUCH IN KURRZERER FASSUNG is a milestone in European Indological scholarship and a signal achievement in lexicography. Also known as the Smaller Petrograd Dictionary, this work was completed in the penultimate decade of the nineteenth century. The 7 volumed Larger Petrograd Dictionary was completed by Otto Von Bohtlingk in co operation with RV Roth. This work is meant "to improve where something ought to be improved and to add where something was missing, and to always remind hte reader, by leaving out all the quotations and references, that the larger dictionary had to remain the main source."

This work is such a great improvement both in terms of substance and quantity that it has become the tool for all those who wish to read Sanskrit texts; in fact most of the later Sanskrit dictionaries are heavily indebted to this work directly or indirectly. Monier Williams' is a little more than a translated abridgement.

This is a fresh reprint. Unfortunately, the old typeface has been retained, the value addition being that it has been reprinted on good quality paper and is handsomely bound.

A HANDBOOK OF SARVODAYA in 2 Volumes(English)
GANDHI, VINOBA & JAYAPRAKASH : THE TRIUMVIRATE OF SARVODAYA
By Subhash Mehta
Geeta Prakashan
2005 216 x 135 mm 486 pp in 2 vols.
Paperback Rs. 100

This book describes in brief the turbulent and eventful lives of Mahatma Gandhi, Vinoba Bhave and Jayaprakash Narayan, the three giants of the Sarvodaya movement.

Sarvodaya is explained comprehensively and the dynamic roles played by the triumvirate of Gandhi, Vinoba and J.P. are described lucidly. Written for the youth of India, the author attempts to set before them the ideals and the example of the Sarvodaya movement as a means of pro-active nation building.

The Sarvodaya movement had two objectives :
1. More equitable distribution of agricultural land
2. The strengthening of democracy in India through social awakening

Championed by Vinoba Bhave and Jayaprakash Narayan, the Sarvodaya movement was the successor to the non-violent independence movements pioneered by Mahatma Gandhi and its long-reaching success is evident today.

This is a very low priced edition, as its cost has been subsidised by the author who is an eminent Gandhian and Sarvodayi.
