About this Item: Penguin Books India, 2012. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. ?If people have lost their lives in a storm, it is a different matter; but how can a massacre be forgotten? Especially when there?s been no justice?? The three days of 1984, when over 3000 Sikhs were slaughtered, have indelibly marked the lives of thousands more who continue to exist in a twilight of bitterness and despair. It was outrage at this state of affairs that led Jarnail Singh?an unassuming, law-abiding journalist?to throw his shoe at Home Minister P. Chidambaram during a press conference in New Delhi. He readily acknowledges that this was not an appropriate means of protest, but asks why, twenty-seven years after the massacres, so little has been done to address the issues that are still unresolved and a source of anguish to the whole community. I Accuse . . . is a powerful and passionate indictment of the state?s response to the killings of 1984. By exploring the chain of events, the survivors? stories and the continuing shadow it casts over their lives, Singh seeks answers to some relevant questions. Who initiated the pogrom and why? Why did the state apparatus allow it to happen? Why, despite the many commissions and committees set up to investigate the events, have the perpetrators not been brought to book? Because, finally, 1984 was not an attack on the Sikh community alone; it was an attack on the idea at the very core of democracy?that every citizen, irrespective of faith and community, has a right to life, security and justice. Printed Pages: 176. Seller Inventory # 51124

About this Item: Jaico Publishing House, 2011. Softcover. Condition: New. Murad Ali Baig questions, not the importance of faith, but the capturing of all religions by the vested interests of professional priests claiming to be God?s sole selling agents leading to distortions, superstitions and religiosity that the founding sages would have abhorred. He analyzes the patrons of religion ? the founding prophets, apostles, priests, rulers and the rich ? and the common people whose offerings make the places of worship so rich. Murad provides interesting insights into how people the world over, especially in India, have been influenced by geography, sources of food, technological change, trade and by political and religious forces. He presents provocative questions and answers allowing readers to draw their own conclusions. Writing on religion can be volatile but fortunately he cannot be accused of prejudice when his answers equally impact Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, Sikhs and others. Printed Pages: 256.

About this Item: Lustre/Roli Books, 2007. Softcover. Condition: New. The author, one of India`s best-known journalists, visited numerous riot-torn cities, towns and villages - Jamshedpur, Moradabad, Sarhupur, Meerut - to discover what lay behind the outbreaks of communal and caste violence that have taken place in India after Partition. In Riot after Riot, he finds that the basic cause for communal frenzy is the same: poverty, economic deprivation and a history that has been perverted and misused by religious zealots. M.J. Akbar has the journalist`s eye for the revealing instance, but he also possesses the historian`s sense of the deeper trends - and he uses these gifts to provide an illuminating study of the violence beneath and on the surface of the land of Gandhi.

About this Item: Orient BlackSwan Pvt. Ltd, 2009. Softcover. Condition: New. Umrao Jan Ada was first published in 1899. Based on the life of a courtesan of Lucknow?a woman of great charm with a reputation as a very fine poet and singer?the novel recreates the gracious ambience of old Lucknow and takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the palaces of wealthy nawabs, the hideouts of vagabonds, to the luxurious abodes of the city?s courtesans. It captures the culture and decadence of a lifestyle that has now vanished for ever. It was adapted into a hit Bollywood film in the year 1981. This translation preserves the full flavour of the original narrative. The poetry, as well as the prose, retains the finesse of the original Urdu, and the translation is therefore as affective as it is comprehensible. Printed Pages: 188. Seller Inventory # 14144

About this Item: Hay House India, 2011. Softcover. Condition: New. An anthology of Khushwant Singh?s best writings on his favourite subjects, Women, Sex, Love and Lust is at once witty, informative, thought-provoking and flagrant. Definitely a book you can?t afford to miss! If you are looking for answers to eternal questions like which came first ? love or lust, or debates pertaining to celibacy, chastity or arranged marriages, Khushwant Singh delivers his unique exposé. Whether he is analysing the fine dividing line between obscenity, pornography and erotica, describing sex from ?Chaturbhani? (200-350 B.C.) or his ideas of a composite Indian woman, Khushwant holds the reader?s attention effortlessly. But that isn?t all ? years before terms such as ?gender issues? or ?gender divide? became popular, he was writing, thinking and sharing his views on them. His deliberations reveal an unexpected side to Khushwant . . . in these pages you?ll also find a rare glimpse of Khushwant the feminist. Women, Sex, Love and Lust abounds with Indian as well as foreign myths, legends, proverbs, and poems ranging from Chaucer, Shakespeare, Whitman to Kalidas, Iqbal and Faiz. Almost each page offers you delectable quotes from Russell to Wodehouse along with special anecdotes which could only come from the inimitable Khushwant. Only he could share with you his intense experience of nudo-phobia suffered in Sweden, his acute observation of Indian whoremongers when abroad, scandals amongst the literati and glitterati ? H. G. Wells as a compulsive fornicator or Georges Simenon hammering away at his typewriter (and his women) at the age of eighty are only a few revelations. Printed Pages: 220. Seller Inventory # 49487

About this Item: Lustre/Roli Books, 2007. Softcover. Condition: New. The author, one of India`s best-known journalists, visited numerous riot-torn cities, towns and villages - Jamshedpur, Moradabad, Sarhupur, Meerut - to discover what lay behind the outbreaks of communal and caste violence that have taken place in India after Partition. In Riot after Riot, he finds that the basic cause for communal frenzy is the same: poverty, economic deprivation and a history that has been perverted and misused by religious zealots. M.J. Akbar has the journalist`s eye for the revealing instance, but he also possesses the historian`s sense of the deeper trends - and he uses these gifts to provide an illuminating study of the violence beneath and on the surface of the land of Gandhi. Printed Pages: 168. Seller Inventory # 45368

About this Item: Orient BlackSwan Pvt. Ltd, 2009. Softcover. Condition: New. Umrao Jan Ada was first published in 1899. Based on the life of a courtesan of Lucknowâ€"a woman of great charm with a reputation as a very fine poet and singerâ€"the novel recreates the gracious ambience of old Lucknow and takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the palaces of wealthy nawabs, the hideouts of vagabonds, to the luxurious abodes of the city’s courtesans. It captures the culture and decadence of a lifestyle that has now vanished for ever. It was adapted into a hit Bollywood film in the year 1981. This translation preserves the full flavour of the original narrative. The poetry, as well as the prose, retains the finesse of the original Urdu, and the translation is therefore as affective as it is comprehensible. Printed Pages: 188. Seller Inventory # 14144

About this Item: Hay House India, 2011. Softcover. Condition: New. An anthology of Khushwant Singh’s best writings on his favourite subjects, Women, Sex, Love and Lust is at once witty, informative, thought-provoking and flagrant. Definitely a book you can’t afford to miss! If you are looking for answers to eternal questions like which came first â€" love or lust, or debates pertaining to celibacy, chastity or arranged marriages, Khushwant Singh delivers his unique exposà . Whether he is analysing the fine dividing line between obscenity, pornography and erotica, describing sex from ‘Chaturbhani’ (200-350 B.C.) or his ideas of a composite Indian woman, Khushwant holds the reader’s attention effortlessly. But that isn’t all â€" years before terms such as ‘gender issues’ or ‘gender divide’ became popular, he was writing, thinking and sharing his views on them. His deliberations reveal an unexpected side to Khushwant . . . in these pages you’ll also find a rare glimpse of Khushwant the feminist. Women, Sex, Love and Lust abounds with Indian as well as foreign myths, legends, proverbs, and poems ranging from Chaucer, Shakespeare, Whitman to Kalidas, Iqbal and Faiz. Almost each page offers you delectable quotes from Russell to Wodehouse along with special anecdotes which could only come from the inimitable Khushwant. Only he could share with you his intense experience of nudo-phobia suffered in Sweden, his acute observation of Indian whoremongers when abroad, scandals amongst the literati and glitterati â€" H. G. Wells as a compulsive fornicator or Georges Simenon hammering away at his typewriter (and his women) at the age of eighty are only a few revelations. Printed Pages: 220. Seller Inventory # 49487
