The multi-dimensional nature of the city and the exuberant continuity in spite of various hurdles have been the strong points of Mumbai. Every city expands with the political rules.

The term 'Bombay' in the British records enveloped the area of seven islands. In ancient and medieval times certain localities outside the later British 'Bombay' had got populated. The book shows that these areas had the sources of potable water supply and hence they got populated.

Book Description Aryan Books International, New Delhi, India, 2011. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. The city of Mumbai in India has generated a lot of curiosity among the scholars within India and abroad. The multi-dimensional nature of the city and the exuberant continuity in spite of various hurdles have been the strong points of Mumbai. Every city expands with the political rules. Today the municipal jurisdiction of Mumbai is identified with the term MCGM i.e., Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai. The term Bombay in the British records enveloped the area of seven islands. In ancient and medieval times certain localities outside the later British 'Bombay' had got populated. The book shows that these areas had the sources of potable water supply and hence they got populated. Later, the British officials identified many of these areas as having potential of providing water to the entire city. These were then considered for the major water schemes. Before the major water schemes like Vehar Water Works there were various efforts to conserve and preserve water because the existing water supply, as the official records reflect, by way of tanks and wells in South Bombay was inadequate to cater to the needs of the people. The book states such efforts towards early water management in the city. Water charities done by many philanthropists to the city came as a boon especially when there was inflow of population since the nineteenth century. The book takes a survey of these water charities. The book discusses the development of water till the Tansa Water Works. The present volume will interest people at large, in particular, specialists in water management and conservation, historians, architects, sociologists and anthropologists. Printed Pages: 192 with 4 figures & maps colours, 15 b/w, 117 colours & 2 b/w illustrations. Size: 22 x 28 Cm. Bookseller Inventory # 100152

Book Description Aryan Books International, New Delhi, India, 2014. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. This volume is a collection of papers presented in a seminar that was held under the auspices of the Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Shimla. It endeavours to offer an integral vision of Indian arts in their autonomous and related domains and is designed to meet the requirement of having an authentic and popular sourcebook to enlighten average readers on different manifestations of Indian arts down the ages. It underscores that despite the vicissitudes of history, Indian art in its different forms embodies a remarkably distinctive spirit of creativity that has remained alive through ages and has often been reinvented in various ways in legitimizing the tradition and enriching its nuances and connectedness in practice. The volume is divided into five sections: ‘Plastic Arts in Making’, ‘Beginnings and Efflorescence of Classical Idiom’, ‘Regional Inflexions: Bronzes, Sculpture and Architecture’, ‘Architectural and Painterly Tradition: Medieval, Modern and Folk’ and lastly, the ‘Performing Arts: Dance and Theatre-Tradition and Practice’. These five sections contain twenty one essays respectively on the heritage of Indian proto-historic phase, Mauryan pillars, Sanchi, the Karle chaitya, classical iconography, Ajanta and Bagh Paintings, Pallava and Chola Bronzes, Ellora, Khajuraho, Konarka, Chola temples, temples and sculptures of ancient Kashmir, temples of Uttarakhand, early medieval paintings, Mughal architecture, Rajasthani paintings, modern Indian paintings, loka chitras, classical dances of India and ancient dramatic tradition. Printed Pages: 296 with 108 colours & 114 b/w illustrations. Size: 22 x 31 Cm. Bookseller Inventory # 100101
