Book Description: Orient BlackSwan, 2010. Softcover. Book Condition: New. . (illustrator). . This three-volume English translation by Ratan Kumar Chattopadhyay called Selections from Galpaguchchha is a collection of sixty-one of Tagore?s short stories broadly grouped under the themes of parting of ways, the relationship between men and women, and the power within the woman, respectively. In Volume 2, we find the ever- popular ?Ramkanai?s Folly?, ?The Ghat?s Story?, ?Woman Bereft of Jewels?, ?Grandfather?, and ?The Matronly Boy?, among other stories. The travails of a timid man of indomitable honesty who attains a tragic heroism are narrated in ?Ramkanai?s Folly?, while the theme of ?The Ghat?s Story? is the unstated, forbidden love of a young woman for a hermit who may or may not be her long-lost husband. The frisson in the haunting climax of the ?Woman Bereft of Jewels?, a horrifying morality tale of egotism and greed, is justly famous. Printed Pages: 312. Bookseller Inventory # 14028

Book Description: David Crumm Media, LLC, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 203 x 127 mm. Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Interfaith Heroes is an inspiring 31-day reader, showcasing short biographies of men and women throughout history who have crossed traditional boundaries of religious groups to build stronger communities. The dramatic story of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is included as well as biographical sketches of Mahatma Gandhi and St. Francis, among the more famous names in the book. But most readers will discover new uplifting stories, including the recently documented efforts by Albanian Muslims during World War II to hide Jews in their attics. Sketches of other famous leaders include Baptist pioneer Roger Williams, the Sufi poet best known simply as Rumi, Hindu writer Rabindranath Tagore, Jewish theologian Martin Buber, the American evangelist Howard Thurman and the French Catholic Cardinal Aaron Jean-Marie Lustiger. These stories were written and edited by Daniel Buttry, an international peace negotiator for American Baptist Churches - but the style of the book is balanced and educational. This is an exploration and a celebration of diversity, not a book aimed at converting anyone to anything other than peacemaking itself. The book includes questions for daily reflection that are designed to spark creative thinking by people of all faiths. The sketches and daily questions could be used by discussion groups or students in classrooms studying history, global culture or the sociology of religion. Also included is a Study Guide for individuals, groups and classrooms. Plus, suggestions for organizing new, regional interfaith groups. The book is supplemented with online content at and readers are invited to read this book - and nominate more heroes whose liveswill be honored and explored in future editions of this series.

Book Description: Orient BlackSwan, New Delhi, 2011. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. This three-volume English translation by Ratan Kumar Chattopadhyay called Selections from Galpaguchchha is a collection of sixty-one of Tagore?s short stories broadly grouped under the themes of parting of ways, the relationship between men and women, and the power within the woman, respectively. Volume 1 includes memorable stories like the ?The Pedlar from Kabul?, ?Broken Nest?, ?Punishment? and ?The Postmaster? In the first, an Afghan hawker, Rahmat, comes to Calcutta and befriends five-year-old Mini, who reminds him of his own daughter back home. While ?Broken Nest? is a story of a lonely urban housewife?s friendship with her brother-in-law and her overwhelming sense of loss when the relationship ends abruptly, ?Punishment? set in rural Bengal is a poignant story of young Chandora and her grim resolve when her husband, to save his brother, persuades her to own up to a murder she did not commit. In Volume 2, we find the ever- popular ?Ramkanai?s Folly?, ?The Ghat?s Story?, ?Woman Bereft of Jewels?, ?Grandfather?, and ?The Matronly Boy?, among other stories. The travails of a timid man of indomitable honesty who attains a tragic heroism are narrated in ?Ramkanai?s Folly?, while the theme of ?The Ghat?s Story? is the unstated, forbidden love of a young woman for a hermit who may or may not be her long-lost husband. The frisson in the haunting climax of the ?Woman Bereft of Jewels?, a horrifying morality tale of egotism and greed, is justly famous. Volume 3, the last in this series, is studded with gems such as ?Hungry Stones?, ?The Wife?s Letter?, ?The Story of a Muslim Woman?, ?Hidden Treasure? and ?At Dead of Night? The theme of ?Hungry Stones? is a tale hovering between dream and reality involving palace intrigue and unrequited love, and in ?The Wife?s Letter?, Mrinal breaks free from the stifling marital ties of fifteen years in what is an indictment of existing gender relations. A traditional Hindu girl out of gratitude for her elderly Muslim protector embraces his religion and falls in love with his son in ?The Story of a Muslim Woman?. Bookseller Inventory # 048342

In 1946, Paramahansa Yogananda (January 5, 1893-March 7, 1952), published his life story, Autobiography of a Yogi, which introduced many westerners to meditation and yoga. It has since been translated into 25 languages, and the various editions published since its inception have sold over a million copies worldwide. The book describes Yogananda s search for a guru, and his encounters with leading spiritual figures such as Therese Neumann, the Hindu saint Sri Anandamoyi Ma, Mohandas Gandhi, Rabindranath Tagore, Nobel Prize-winning physicist Sir C. V. Raman, and noted American plant scientist Luther Burbank, to whom it is dedicated. Amelita Galli-Curci, one of the most famous opera singers of the early twentieth century, said about the book: Amazing, true stories of saints and masters of India, blended with priceless superphysical information-much needed to balance the Western material efficiency with Eastern spiritual efficiency-come from the vigorous pen of Paramhansa Yogananda, whose teachings my husband and myself have had the pleasure of studying for twenty years.

While ?Broken Nest? is a story of a lonely urban housewife?s friendship with her brother-in-law and her overwhelming sense of loss when the relationship ends abruptly, ?Punishment? set in rural Bengal is a poignant story of young Chandora and her grim resolve when her husband, to save his brother, persuades her to own up to a murder she did not commit. In Volume 2, we find the ever- popular ?Ramkanai?s Folly?, ?The Ghat?s Story?, ?Woman Bereft of Jewels?, ?Grandfather?, and ?The Matronly Boy?, among other stories. The travails of a timid man of indomitable honesty who attains a tragic heroism are narrated in ?Ramkanai?s Folly?, while the theme of ?The Ghat?s Story? is the unstated, forbidden love of a young woman for a hermit who may or may not be her long-lost husband. The frisson in the haunting climax of the ?Woman Bereft of Jewels?, a horrifying morality tale of egotism and greed, is justly famous. Volume 3, the last in this series, is studded with gems such as ?Hungry Stones?, ?The Wife?s Letter?, ?The Story of a Muslim Woman?, ?Hidden Treasure? and ?At Dead of Night? The theme of ?Hungry Stones? is a tale hovering between dream and reality involving palace intrigue and unrequited love, and in ?The Wife?s Letter?, Mrinal breaks free from the stifling marital ties of fifteen years in what is an indictment of existing gender relations. A traditional Hindu girl out of gratitude for her elderly Muslim protector embraces his religion and falls in love with his son in ?The Story of a Muslim Woman? Printed Pages: 988.

Book Description: Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. Interfaith Heroes is an inspiring 31-day reader, showcasing short biographies of men and women throughout history who have crossed traditional boundaries of religious groups to build stronger communities. The dramatic story of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is included as well as biographical sketches of Mahatma Gandhi and St. Francis, among the more famous names in the book. But most readers will discover new uplifting stories, including the recently documented efforts by Albanian Muslims during World War II to hide Jews in their attics. Sketches of other famous leaders include Baptist pioneer Roger Williams, the Sufi poet best known simply as Rumi, Hindu writer Rabindranath Tagore, Jewish theologian Martin Buber, the American evangelist Howard Thurman and the French Catholic Cardinal Aaron Jean-Marie Lustiger. These stories were written and edited by Daniel Buttry, an international peace negotiator for American Baptist Churches - but the style of the book is balanced and educational. This is an exploration and a celebration of diversity, not a book aimed at converting anyone to anything other than peacemaking itself. The book includes questions for daily reflection that are designed to spark creative thinking by people of all faiths. The sketches and daily questions could be used by discussion groups or students in classrooms studying history, global culture or the sociology of religion. Also included is a Study Guide for individuals, groups and classrooms. Plus, suggestions for organizing new, regional interfaith groups. The book is supplemented with online content at www. InterfaithHeroes. info and readers are invited to read this book - and nominate more heroes whose lives will be honored and explored in future editions of this series.

Prelude to an autobiography/Amit Chaudhuri. 2. Sexual history of an accountant/Suketu Mehta. 3. Indian restaurant/Amitava Kumar. A new kind of Indian writing in English was in the air in the early 1990s. Vikram Seth Amitav Ghosh I. Allan Sealy and Upamanyu Chatterjee had written their early books. The new current was promising and Dharma Kumar historian and editor of the famous Indian Economic and Social History Review decided to publish a journal along the lines of Granta and The New Yorker dedicated to ferreting out the best literary talent. The journal Civil Lines New Writing from India first appeared in 1994 and quickly attracted attention by publishing literary pieces that were a cut above developing a cult following among readers of Indian writing in English. Till 2001 five issues had been published totaling sixty one individual contributions by thirty eight contributors. Some of the contributors were then far from well known and Civil Lines could be said to have given them a leg up towards subsequent fame. Sheila Dhar Susan Visvanatha Raj Kamal Jha Ruchir Joshi Siddhartha Deb Suketu Mehta Amitava Kumar and Manjula Padmanabhan went on to become established writers after Civil Lines had published their smaller pieces. Ramachandra Guha's first brilliant essay a five finger exercise in literary anthropology which seems with hindsight to presage his later work on Verrier Elwin appeared in the inaugural issue. A little known aspect of Amitav Ghosh is his interest in the short story. Ghosh contributed two pieces to the journal a reflective essay on the Indian practice of the short story and a wonderfully fluent translation of one of Tagore's most famous tales Kshudhita Pashan (The hunger of stones). The present anthology comprises a selection of the finest essays stories and poems that were published in the first five issues of Civil Lines. This anthology is a must for all those interested in the best practitioners of desi English. 392 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 75694
