For King & Another Country by  Shrabani Basu -60%

For King & Another Country by Shrabani Basu

Over a million Indian soldiers fought in the First World War, the largest force from the colonies and dominions. Their contribution, however, has been largely forgotten. Many soldiers were illiterate and travelled from remote villages in India to fight in the muddy trenches in France and Flanders. Many went on to win the highest bravery awards. For King and another Country tells, for the first time, the personal stories of some of these Indians who went to the Western Front: from a grand turbanned Maharaja rearing to fight for Empire to a lowly sweeper who dies in a hospital in England, from a Pathan who wins the Victoria Cross to a young pilot barely out of school. Shrabani Basu delves into archives in Britain and narratives buried in villages in India and Pakistan to recreate the War through the eyes of the Indians who fought it. There are heroic tales of bravery as well as those of despair and desperation; there are accounts of the relationships that were forged between the Indians with their British officers and how curries reached the frontline. Above all, it is the great story of how the War changed India and led, ultimately, to the call for independence...

From Home to House Writings of Kashmiri Pandits in Exile by Arvind Gigoo -60%

From Home to House Writings of Kashmiri Pandits in Exile by Arvind Gigoo

A moving portrait of a community reduced to being tourists in their own homeland. It has been twenty-five years since around 3.5 lakh Kashmiri Pandits were uprooted from their homes in the Kashmir valley due to militancy and changed circumstances. Many of them had to face the ignominy of living in tents, then in one-room tenements or flats, as refugees in their own country. They felt let down by both the state and central governments and by Indian society as a whole – as well as by the Muslims of the valley. There was to be no going back for them. From Home to House is an anthology of short stories, essays and writings by Kashmiri Pandits in exile, vividly bringing out their nostalgia for Kashmir, their sense of betrayal, their attempts to pick up the pieces and carve a new life for themselves. These are the reflections of a lost and scattered people in what for them is an alien land. The writings show both their vulnerability – their helplessness as they see their culture and way of life getting eroded – and their resilience – as the younger generation of Pandits spreads its wings and builds a whole new life for itself. This anthology holds a mirror to the troubled valley of Kashmir, a mirror from which the reflection of a section of its population is now missing...

SKIN by Paul, Sharad P.

An accessible look at skin – our most fundamental organ – by one of the foremost experts in the fieldThe story goes back to a flat and primeval earth, where the sun was dominant and the seas shallow. Fossils buried and unearthed, unicellular and multicellular, all told this evolutionary tale of the development of skin into an organ, and the changes it undertook every time the future of a species was at stake.’Skin: A Biography tells a complex tale with many unexpected connections in its exploration of our largest sense organ. It is a tale that lays bare a strange world: a mix of science, romance and mystery. Did you know, for instance, that one single chemically inert and stable pigment is responsible for all variations in skin colour among humans. That the top layer of our skin is essentially ‘dead’. Have you stopped to think why we need skin at all – or for that matter, why life even bothered to move from its uncomplicated unicellular state to these messy, energy-consuming, multi-cellular beings?Beautifully written and passionately researched, this book will fundamentally change the way we think about skin and skin colour. Combining scientific expertise with his credentials as an acclaimed writer of literary fiction, Sharad P. Paul peels away artificial divisions to lay open the genetic chains that bind races and species together, and draws us into a wonderful, uncertain world.About the AuthorSharad P.

Tamasha in Bandargaon Paperback – December 1, 2011 by Navneet Jagannathan (Author)

In the fictional suburb of Bandargaon, tucked away in Bombay, there s never a quiet moment. Dreams erupt, hopes shatter, in the heaving Sunrise Apartments, by a rickety tea-cart Jinias Chai Hause, inside a seedy Jaanam Desi Bar, and by the dilapidated Purana Qila. Chagan, the dashing hero, who shines like a film-star, spends hours wooing a beauteous Shalini. Shalini, ever fickle, oscillates between him and a pining Vinayak. Vinayak, in turn, tries desperately to win the favour of Shalini s mother, Lakshmibai. Elsewhere, the local politician, Sajjanpur, tries winning an impossible election; Miranda, a sullen mortician, seeks answers from an ailing priest; and Sultan, the irascible grocer contends with an overfriendly dog. Reminiscent of R. K. Narayan s Malgudi Days, Tamasha in Bandargaon, with its interlinked stories, with its effortless dialogue and wry humour, is at once enriching and entertaining. In the young debut writer s imaginary world, there s sound, fury, and the distant glimmer of hope...

The Man Who Knew Infinity by Kanigel Robert

This is the biography of a mathematical prodigy- Srinivasa Ramanujan, whose inhibited genius finally came to recognition when he stepped into Europe.Summary Of The BookSrinivasa Ramanujan was an enigma during his lifetime and continues to be one, even today. Ramanujan was born into a poor Brahmin family in Madras, and his parents were financially unable to support him after his initial schooling, which is one of life’s little ironies, since his contributions to the world of mathematics are inspiring and brilliant.Kanigel doesn’t stop with focusing on the protagonist, and provides a peek into the setting in which Ramanujan was groomed and raised.
