About The Book

The Bharatiya Janata Party’s steady advance over the last three decades – from two Lok Sabha seats in 1984 to 282 in 2014 – has been accompanied by the mushrooming of organizations that stir up trouble, polarize communities, incite violence and even kill – all in the name of Hindutva. There has been little to no insight into the structure of these organizations and their evolutions. Dhirendra K. Jha investigates and profiles eight such organizations across India, from Sanatan Sanstha, whose members have been charged with the brutal murder of journalist Gauri Lankesh, to Yogi Adityanath’s Hindu Yuva Vahini.

About The Book

Two lost souls retreat from the inhumanity of urban life in 1990s India, deciding to shed their names and become hermits in a remote forest abode, living among animals and planting trees. However, they soon discover that the serenity that surrounds them is deceptive – that the land and the people around them are slowly succumbing to a slow poisoning. Man and Woman realize that they must re-enter the world of humanity and join the struggle against the corporations and governments turning paradise into hell. Moving from myth to history and back again, Swarga is the tale of the early days of the people’s epic struggle against endosulfan-spraying in north Kerala.

ABOUT THE BOOK : A year before his death, my revered Guru MM Gopinath Kaviraja called me and said, “Recently one translation of Siva-Sutras into Hindi and another into English have been brought to my notice. I have been both pained and shocked by the flagrant errors committed by these translators. It is my earnest wish that you prepared another translation of this great book into English”.

The Saiva system of Philosophy and Yoga is generally known as Agama. The world Agama means a traditional doctrine or system which commands faith.

The Saiva system, in general, is known a Siva-sasana or Sivagama. The non-dualistic Saiva system of Kashmir is known as Trika-Sasana or Trika-sastra or Rahasya-sarnpradaya. The world sasana and sastra are very significant. Both contain the root sasa which means discipline. A Sastra or Sasana in India never meant merely an intellectual exposition of a particular system.

THE PITCH
The first authorised biography of Soli Sorabjee Abhinav Chandrachud, one of India’s foremost legal scholar

THE BOOK
The first authorised biography of Soli Sorabjee ‘A gripping life story of a Goliath who strode the Indian legal canvass for nearly seventy years.’-Mukul Rohatgi, former Attorney General of India
How does a Parsi lawyer, deeply influenced by the principles of Roman Catholicism, fall in love with a Bahai and go on to become the Attorney General of India for a Hindu nationalist BJP government? How does a boy with a broken leg, who studied in a Gujarati medium school and lost his father at the age of nineteen, go on to mount a heroic defense of the Janata government’s decision to dissolve Congress state legislatures in the Supreme Court in 1977? How does a newspaper columnist who admires Nehru, who criticizes the BJP for
being ‘obsessed’ with ‘demolishing mosques’ and advises them to replace ‘Hindutva’ with ‘Bharatva’ or ‘Indianness’, get chosen by Prime Minister Vajpayee to represent the government in the Supreme Court in many cases including the Ayodhya case? How does a lawyer with a humdrum customs and excise law practice, whose grandfather sold horse-drawn carriages in Bombay, become a U.N. human rights rapporteur, and repeatedly defend the fundamental right to free speech and expression in the Supreme Court of India? Authorised, comprehensive and absolutely unputdownable, this first biography of Soli Sorabjee opens a window to life and times of India’s foremost constitutional experts.

QUOTES
‘A gripping life story of a Goliath who strode the Indian legal canvass for nearly seventy years.’’ Mukul Rohatgi, former Attorney General of India
‘Soli Sorabjee was undoubtedly a doyen of the Bar. His life is a history of the post-independence era of India, and one can, in these pages, find not only a window into the life of a legal legend, but also an examination of some of the key social, political, and legal developments of the last century. … I would invite the reader therefore, to take this journey through the life of a legal luminary, a connoisseur of music, poetry and fine food, and above all a good human being.’’ K.K. Venugopal, Attorney

General of India
‘Superbly researched, this book by Abhinav Chandrachud is a must read. In the backdrop of Sorabjee’s incredible journey which every aspiring lawyer should want to know, is the story of the Supreme Court’s strides and setbacks over five formative decades. The relevance of this book transcends the legal fraternity.’’ Madhavi Goradia Divan, Additional Solicitor General in the Supreme Court of India ‘This isn’t merely the story of a remarkable lawyer but it also provides a window to many defining moments of the India’s legal history. Soli Sorabjee wasn’t just a top attorney but was also a symbol of a more cosmopolitan India. Abhinav Chandrachud skilfully captures the values that a multi-hued Sorabjee came to represent in a lifetime at the bar and beyond.’’ Rajdeep Sardesai, well-known author and news

Saraswathi 

Edited by R.K.Madhukar

 

About the Book:

Dashavataram refers to the Ten Avataras or incarnations of Lord Vishnu. Dasha in Sanskrit means ten and avataram means incarnation or embodiment. Lord Vishnu is one of the Three Holy Trinities of the Hindus – Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva (Maheshwara). 

Lord Vishnu has taken different births on the Earth (Bhuloka) to guide the human beings on the path of righteousness and virtuous living. The progressive nature of the avataras or incarnations also provides an insight into the Evolution of Human Life. The Ten Avataras of Lord Vishnu are mentioned in the Hindu Puranas. They are Matsya (Fish), Koorma (Tortoise), Varaha (Boar), Narasimha (Man-Lion), Vamana (Dwarf), Parashurama (Brahmin Warrior), Rama (Ideal Human Being), Balarama (Shesha, the Serpent), Krishna (Universal Supreme Being), and Kalki (in Kali Yuga). 

The Author of this fascinating book has presented all the Ten Avataras with beautiful illustrations in an endearing manner, appealing both to the children and the adults. 

 

Saraswathi is the pen name of Late Shri C.B.Ravi, also known as Cheerath Bhaskaran Ravi. He was a linguist with good knowledge of Hindi, Tamil, Marathi, Telugu, Bengali, and Gujarati, in addition to English and the East African language, Swahili. He worked for the British Government in Tanzania, East Africa from 1951 to 1967 and retired as a Revenue Officer of PWD. He retired early to come   back to his country and settled in Chennai. In Chennai, he started and successfully ran a typing institute from 1968 to 1996, following which he retired and donated the institute to a charitable organization. 

Shri Ravi exhibited a desire to write dramas and stories even at a very young age of 10 years. Many of his stories have been published in his native tongue Malayalam. He was a great storyteller and reveled in telling stories from Hindu Puranas to his young friends. Shri Ravi spent his life in a worthy manner imparting education, good moral values, and above all a love for the Indian culture and tradition. In this fascinating book, Dashavataram, Saraswathi has brought to life the Ten enchanting Avataras of Lord Vishnu in an engaging tradition of storytelling.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Telgi and the stamp scam? Didn’t that happen a quarter of a century ago?
Why now?

Because the complete story of the counterfeiter and scamster has never
been told before. Because the story of the sheer innovation and audacity of an underdog needs to be told. Because the complex web of corruption involving lawmakers and law-keepers continues. Because the crime has all the overtones of a Bollywood potboiler, replete with chases, corrupt government officials and policemen, political chicanery, bar dancers and yes, a murder too! Because of the many unanswered questions that remain, so many years after the crime and the death of Abdul Karim Ladsaab Telgi in 2017. How was it possible for a man like Telgi to establish a pan-India ‘business’ in 74 cities and reach such dizzying heights of power and pelf, amassing a personal wealth of over Rs 17,000 crore while swindling the economy to the tune of Rs 25,000 crore? How did he manage to undermine the hallowed institutions of India? What was the size of the scam? How did CBI peg the figure at a mere fraction of the guesstimated amount? The Counterfeiter… chronicles the audacious swindle by the flamboyant mastermind in a blow-by-blow account of its execution, investigation, charge sheets, legal developments, Telgi’s incarceration, trial, death – and finally exoneration. An unputdownable true-crime dossier!

Patrick Lyons grew up reading crime novels, so it was only a matter of time before he started creating is own stories…

Times are tough for Samson Ryder, a Melbourne-based, Anglo-Indian private investigator who likes his facts cold and his curries hot. A secret guilt over the death of his sister has left him guarded and closed, costing him his relationship with his girlfriend, his parents and his faith.

When a wealthy Indian industrialist engages him to investigate how his daughter, a rising Bollywood starlet, died on a location shooting in Australia, Samson treats it as easy money. After all, the police had ruled out foul play. He soon comes to realise that this is also his opportunity for redemption, to help a family find the answers to their grief, the answers he couldn’t give to his own parents.

To uncover the truth, Samson goes back to the city of his birth, Mumbai and teams up with Mabel, his interpreter, Godmother and second-best cook in the world. Together, they prise off

the glittering mask of Bollywood and unveil an industry where friendships are fickle, affairs are currency, black magic and curses are rampant and hidden dangers lurk all around. Will Sam uncover the truth or will he be the next victim?
