Working Women in India, 2 Vols

C.P. Rai

Anmol Publications Pvt. Ltd., 2002. Hardcover. New. Throughout history, the position of women has been crucial not only for social development, but for the survival of society itself.

Despite these provisions, working women in India suffer from a lot of problems-at home, at work place and in society. The present work compiles a number of crucial issues pertaining to working women. Organized in two volumes the well-researched information is contained in fifty chapters followed by an epilogue and appendices. The rich contents of the work will benefit students, researchers and teachers besides the policy planners and administrators. Printed Pages: 890.

Tradition and Modernity in Indian Arts: During the Twentieth Century

Neelima Vashishtha

Aryan Books International, Co-published with Institute of Advanced Study, Shimla, 2010. First edition. Hardcover. New. 21 x 27 cm. The present monograph, Tradition and Modernity in Indian Arts, is an exhaustive study of the concepts of tradition and modernism in visual arts of painting and sculpture. It tries to unveil the untouched and lesser known facets of Indian artistic tradition during the first half of the twentieth century. The author has discussed the efforts of groups of thinkers, social workers and artists for the search of identity and idiom of Indian artistic tradition and its transformation into modern. The work starts with the hypothesis that tradition and modernity are not opposed to each other but parts of a continuous process. It explodes the general view that Indian artistic tradition was lost before the advent of British education. The emergence of Bengal School and its attaining the status of a national modern school of painting has been illustrated with supportive arguments. This work highlights the role of the pupils of Abanindranath and Nandalal Bose as promoters and transformers of Indian tradition into modern throughout India. It also succinctly deals with the interaction of these artists with other art centres at Bombay, Delhi and Madras. The common thread between them was that artists at all centres resisted intervention of the British Government in art education. Some of the centres were inclined to adhere to tradition. Others opposed it in the beginning but after experimentation in Western idiom of art reverted to their roots and enriched Indian tradition by assimilating in it the western techniques of art. The book presents a comprehensive picture of the status and developments in painting and sculpture and other graphic arts in India during the first half of the twentieth century. It contains 79 coloured illustrations and 28 black and white figures Table of Content; Preface v Abbreviations xi List of Illustrations xiii 1. Tradition and Modernity in Indian Arts 1 2.

In Search of Change Maestros

Asha Bhandarker,Pritam Singh

Sage Publications, 2011. Hardcover. New. Gandhi said, “Be the change you want to see in the world.” In Search of Change Maestros is a book about leaders who chose to be that change. In Search of Change Maestros documents the contributions of seven great Indian wealth creators and institution builders who thought out of the box and had the vision and fortitude to create world-class Indian corporations that have set global benchmarks. The compilation includes case studies of Kumar Mangalam Birla, M. Damodaran, Sajjan Jindal, K.V. Kamath, Sunil Bharti Mittal, A.M. Naik, and Kiran Mazumdar Shaw. This book highlights: - The personae and leadership styles of the seven maestros. - The growth story and best practices of their corporations. - And, the essential difference that makes the maestros’ contribution and legacy different from others. This is a first-of-its-kind work that focuses on outstanding Indian corporate icons—their means, methods, and achievements—and in the process, creates an entirely new paradigm for evaluating Change Maestros and change leaders not only in the corporate world, but also in public life all over the world. With skilful integration of imaginative fables from different cultures into the case studies and synthesis of in-depth interviews, questionnaires, and anthropological analysis, the authors provide a glimpse into the intimate world-view of these Change Maestros and take the readers on a journey to discover how to be the change they want to see. Printed Pages: 532.

Theravada Buddhist Devotionalism in Ceylon, Burma and Thailand (Series: Emerging Perceptions in Buddhist Studies19)

V.V.S. Saibaba

D.K. Printworld (P) Lte. New Delhi, 2005. First edition. Hardcover. New. 15 x 23 cm. The monograph consists of two parts, of which the first examines the Buddhist devotional practices, from the historical and canonical perspectives of the evolution of the worship of caitya, stupa, relics, symbols and images. It provides a multi-dimensional account of caitya, thupa, relic, symbol and image worship in Theravada Buddhist tradition, in the Sinhalese Vamsa literature and as depicted in the records of the prominent Chinese travellers to India. It throws light on the Buddhist stupa, the Buddha`s relics viz, hair, nail, tooth and ashes; the symbols which pre-ceded the Buddha image viz., the bodhi-tree, wheel, bowl, staff, robe, crest, turban, shadow and the Buddha`s foot-prints as the objects of devotion and worship and the objectives and benefits of such devotional acts. Part two elucidates the rise and growth of Buddhist devotionalism in Sri Lanka with special reference to its ceremonies, rituals, pilgrimages as depicted in the devotional literature of Ceylon. Further, it provides an account of devotional Buddhism in Burma by tracing its antiquity; describes Buddha`s relics, images and pagodas as the objects of veneration. Similarly, it makes a brief survey of Thai Buddhist devotionalism with special reference to Wats, Thai offerings and prayers to Buddha images and their objectives. The work illuminates the historical and canonical significance of precept and practice of different aspects of Buddhist devotion and how they are demonstrated in the contemporary Buddhist religious life of Ceylon, Burma and Thailand.

Ananda K. Coomaraswamy

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd. , 2015. Reprinted. Hardcover. New. 15 x 23. Ananda Coomaraswamy's Hinduism and Buddhism, like all his writings, is a masterpiece. In this work he sets forth his ideas with his usual depth and insight to discard the wrong notions about the divergence in the basic philosophies of these two major religions that have been propounded by 'European scholars and by Indians trained in our modern sceptical and evolutionary modes of thought.' In Hinduism and Buddhism Coomaraswamy has tried to show that the essentials of these religions are the same and form what may be called as the Philosophia Perennis or the Eternal Philosophy. His contention is that Hinduism and Buddhism are not contradictory but the one is a development out of the massive foundation of the other. It is only to those who have made a superficial study that Buddhism seems different from Brahmanism; the more profound is the study, the more difficult it becomes to distinguish Buddhism from Brahmanism. Hinduism and Buddhism is divided into two parts with copious notes added to each part. In the first part, dealing with Hinduism, Coomaraswamy has examined in detail the fundamental concepts like karma, maya, reincarnation, the darsanas, the sacrifice, social order, etc., and in the second part, dealing with Buddhism, he shows that in essentials it was the same as Hinduism and that Buddha did not strive 'to establish a new order to restore an older form.' In sum, the basic philosophy of great religions is drawn from a common fount and the new religions are but the recognition of a common thought manifested under different forms.
