Four Seasons Gardening in India

By Aruna Ludra

New Delhi, India: Low Price Publications/D.K. Publishers Distributors Pvt. Ltd. Gardening is being pursued in a very unscientific way in India. That is because the Malis still call the shots. The information available in gardening books is relevent to the temperate climates of Europe with no consideration shown to the climates of tropical countries like India. The vacuum existing between the books and the needs of India is too obvious. In between spaces are being filled with heavy botanical information.Gardening is an art of co-relations of vision and of creativity; of seasons and scenes and of spirit and of mind. Gardening in India needs to be rescued from catalogue guidance. Hopefully this book will do that by bridging the gulf.An outstanding publications of tropical plants meant for home gardening. This book follows the plants seasonwise and gives practical tips on whom gardening at the level of the amaeur gardener. Guidance is available on Seasonal plants,Shrubs, Flowering trees, Climbers, Cacti, Succulents and most fascinating of the subjects on Decorative and Ornamental Gardening. Printed Pages: 150 with 16 colour plates.. Hardcover. New/New.

Past Lives Quantum Lives: A Journey through Time with Hypnotic Regression/Regressive Hypnosis

By Federica Brambilla

New Delhi, India: Low Price Publications/D.K. Publishers Distributors Pvt. Ltd. `My faith is in Christ: Master of path, truth and life. That first seminar changed my life, widened my spiritual dimension and changed my clinical practice. The people who came into my studio opened me to the contact with the eternal soul, with which we can get in touch through regression. At first, the patients were mostly of Christian religion, then Buddhists also came, believers of other faiths and atheists: they all wanted to get in touch with their souls through a search path that is complementary to the traditional one of care and treatment, to give meaning to the pain and tests that life continuously threw at them. With them I started my journey and, thanks to the desire to share their own experience, I can tell you about our work experience. Thanks to all and... thank you Elena!` Printed Pages: 111..

Stress to Serenity

By Amar Chandel

New Delhi, India: Konark Publication/D.K. Publishers Distributors, 2014. Stress is the scourge of the 21st country. Almost everyone has it. Victims blame it on the busy, competitive, cut-throat lifestyle but the blame actually lies somewhere else. The fact of the matter is that only about 20 per cent of it is caused by external factors. The other 80 per cent is the result of how we react to persons, places or situations. The key to moving from stress to serenity is observing and modifying one’s own thinking process and responses. Aided with beautiful illustrations, handy exercises, examples and case studies, the book shows you how. Printed Pages: 228.. New.

Healthcare Communications and Services For Mother and Child

By Satyajeet Nanda

New Delhi, India: Konark Publication/D.K. Publishers Distributors, 2012. While communication components reflect the demand side of existing health care, the service components represent the supply side of the same. In spite of the fact that communication and service share a proportional relationship, the actual mechanism behind the process is hardly understood in its totality. This book endeavours to disentangle the complex web of the supply-demand framework involving communication and service and management components of health care with special focus on the mother and child. It has looked at the effects on mother and child particularly when there is a resource crunch, where services are not easily available due to poor access to service centres, unavailability of well equipped/trained service providers and a host of other reasons. Added to these factors are the cross-cultural (communication) gaps in the form of culture-induced hesitations like the collective shyness of women to visit male gynaecs that contribute towards the greater 'culture of poverty'. As this book provides a holistic picture of mother and child health in India across communication, management and service aspects, it is useful for a large number of readers, users and stakeholders. It not only provides a conceptual framework for systems related studies but also warrants researchers and program managers to conduct further disaggregate investigations at micro and macro level; and helps policy makers, program managers and community level workers to design and implement focussed interventions.
