About the Book

The term ‘tribe/tribal’ is at the heart of several contentious issues of contemporary Indian society. For centuries the tribal communities have been subjected to domination and control by the outsiders and been victims of cultural genocide. As a result, their relationship with forests has been violated, their lifestyle that epitomised harmony with Nature, stands denigrated causing colossal disruption of the everyday practices. Does the process of subjugation and assimilation imply a complete disintegration of tribal practices and tradition? What are the challenges posed by modernisation, sankritisation, and globalisation on linguistic realities and its effect on tribal identity and culture? What happens when the indigenous language faces threat from the outside world? Does it succumb to the pressure and becomes extinct?

This book offers critical insights into questions that are fundamental as well as contemporary in the field of tribal research. From oral cultures and language issues to the radical aspects in tribal Ramayanas and Mahabharatas, to ethnographic studies on tribal monetary traditions, textile, and handicrafts, not to mention the chapters on literary studies of authors like Mamang Dai, Hansda Sowvendra Shekhar, and Mahasweta Devi, the book encompasses a variety of research work that is multidisciplinary, heterogeneous in scope and yet, incisive in argumentation.

Ananda: Happiness Without Reason

Ananda: Happiness Without Reason by Acharya Prashant

Price: £8.99

ASIN:B0B1FR184R

Publisher: ‎ Harper Collins India (June 27, 2022)

Publication date:June 30, 2022

Language:English

What is that one fundamental thing for which we go about toiling all our lives – sacrificing, negotiating, scheming, praying? Intuitively, one might answer: happiness. But do we really know what happiness is?

Most of the existing literature paints a fuzzy picture of happiness, beautiful in words but lacking in practicality. In this book, Acharya Prashant shatters all misconceptions about happiness jargons like ‘loving unconditionally’ and ‘living in the present’. He explains how what we commonly understand as happiness exists only in the backdrop of sadness, and what man is really looking for is not just happiness, but Ananda – an unconditional joy free from both happiness and sadness. Discarding multiple myths that burden our consciousness, the book draws from scriptures like the Gita and the Upanishads, revealing the true meaning of Ananda.

If you have the courage to question your deep-rooted beliefs and enter an unfathomable territory beyond the duality of happiness and sadness, this book is for you.

Dear Stranger,

Everything we do in life is for love. Why? I don’t know.

Maybe love is what keeps us going. Maybe love is the means and ends to this life. Maybe the Universe runs on love. Whatever may be the reason, love is what we all demand, and love is what we all want. But very often, we find ourselves without love. Some of us have lost love, some of us have lost ourselves in love and some of us don’t believe in love. And for so many of us, it’s worse because we don’t feel we deserve to be loved. Right? I know how it feels to feel unloved for many years. I know how difficult it is to find light, hope, and healing amidst the darkness, pain, and suffering. And that is why I’m writing you again. Thirty letters and poems of realizations and lessons about loving yourself, loving others, and loving the world.

I am with you and I am rooting for you. Let’s do this together? Shall we, my dear stranger?

Love and light,

A stranger who knows you.

Synopsis

This book covers all areas and issues that are important for the management of universities. It gives the history of the establishment of Manipur University, its conversion to a Central university, various difficulties faced, and the indefinite strike launched by the students, teachers and staff members from 31 May 2018. It narrates the efforts made by the Central and the state governments to resolve the impasse, restore normalcy and start the academic session. As normalcy could not be restored, the Hon’ble High Court of Manipur, after hearing Public Interest Litigations, appointed the author, Jarnail Singh, as Administrator of the university to restore normalcy and fully empowered him to discharge the functions of the Vice-Chancellor as provided under the Manipur University Act, 2005 and relevant statutes.

In the book, the author has analysed all issues, matters, actions and non-actions which had affected the functioning of the university and required immediate attention. The author mentions the initiatives taken by him to restore normalcy as well as the difficulties he faced from different quarters in respect of general administration, academics, promotions and recruitment of faculty/non-faculty members, holding of Executive Council meetings, financial management, account keeping and in construction of buildings. As most of the issues mentioned in the book are relevant to all universities, this will be useful to all those who are involved in the management of universities. The author recommends that if the VC, Registrar, Finance Officer and the University Engineer are well conversant with all the rules and regulations, and follow these strictly, the university administration can be run efficiently.

Advance Praises

This book on Manipur University by Shri Jarnail Singh IAS (Retd) is an important guidebook for all university officials on how to improve the functioning of universities. It underscores the need to follow the University Grants Commission (UGC) guidelines as well the university rules, ordinances and statutes in all spheres, and especially for the timely promotion of faculty members, which also goes a long way in improving its functioning. …

—DR NARENDRA JADHAV

Member of Parliament (Rajya Sabha) & Educationist

 

Shri Jarnail Singh IAS (Retd) deals with his historic initiatives to bring back normalcy in Manipur University, a truly Herculean task. The challenges faced by him were not unfamiliar to education administrators, but he was undaunted by them and succeeded in restoring order and making it a successful institution. Having made an effort to reform higher education in Kerala for nearly five years, I was convinced that most state universities had congenital problems, which could not be resolved easily. The experience of Shri Jarnail Singh is valuable for all educationists around the country who are struggling to reform higher education to suit the requirements of the 21st century.

—T.P. SREENIVASAN

Former Ambassador & Executive Vice-Chairman,

Kerala State Higher Education Council

 

Manipur University: Restoring Normalcy by Jarnail Singh is the best thing to have come out of Manipur University in recent times. This is going to be the most important book in the annals of Manipur University and hopefully help set a corrective course for this university which has been described by one of its own as a ‘Controversial University’. Anyone interested in the welfare of MU should and must read this book. It may also serve as a handbook on how to administer Manipur University or for that matter any university. …

ABOUT THE BOOK

The present Dictionary is an attempt to give a rational account of values and meaning of words in Tibetan Language, to distinguish the various transitions in periods of literature and varieties of dialect, and to make sure of each step by the help of accurate and copious illustrations and examples.

The author has not restricted himself only to the Classical Period of the Tibetan literature. He has endeavoured to deal with the Tibetan language as a whole. His dictionary derives its matter and principles equally from the literature and from the speech of the people. Each word has been made the object of observation in its relation to the content as it occurs in books, and in its value and place among other when it is used in common conversation. But in the latter case it has been an uphill task since the spoken language has as many dialects as the county its provinces. However an attempt has been made to define the range and fix the meaning of current words as far as possible.

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Heinrich Jaschke (1817-1883), a missionary of the Moravian Mission Society, went to Lahaul and Ladakh and become well-versed in the Tibetan language. Jaschke wrote a number of text books for Tibetan children and began translating the Bible into Tibetan. He wrote a short practical Grammar of the Tibetan Language with special reference to the spoken dialects, 1865, Romanized Tibetan-English Dictionary, 1866, and Introduction to the Hindi and Urdu Languages for Tibetans. He published the Dictionary of the Tibetan Language in German. He translated it into English and published it in 1881 in London. Jaschke also contributed papers on the pronunciation and phonetics of the Tibetan language. He translated some of the songs of Milaraspa into German.
