People's participation and innovative initiatives at the community level for environmental improvement give a special thrust to the local government's efforts. The contributions from different countries reiterate in the book the significance of the partnership between the local government and the community in urban environmental management for sustainable development.

Education is a very comprehensive term. It applies not only to the knowledge of the three R's but much more beyond that. That's why a person despite having sufficient knowledge of reading and writing is sometimes called uneducated or educated unpadh i.e. so called educated. In fact the very first education starts ipso facto from mother's lap. Here a child learns the fundamentals of behaviour or conduct. Apart from school or college the informal education picked up from home and society plays a major role in building one's character. It includes social interaction religion different isms political influences individual efforts and intellect motivational factors cultivation of education educational methods and teachers contribution etc. All the above mentioned factors go in making a person educated in the real sense of the term. With the passage of time a child grows physically and mentally. Simultaneously other factors also keep influencing him or her. Academically and technically education's roots are in philosophy and different theories formulated by various educationists and scholars over the years. Strictly speaking one's education gets its approximate completion after obtaining certain certificates or diplomas. But unless and until one acquires a little knowledge of social norms of behaviour traditionally practiced rites and rituals and effective co operation of teachers or guardians one's education cannot be called proper. That is to say studying beyond syllabus is as necessary as anything for proper growth and development. But apart from all these essential factors the foundation of education gets its strength from the familial environment. That's why the initial period is of crucial importance for a child's development. The more solid and firmer the foundation the stronger the edifice. The present comprehensive book aims at throwing light on all those issues relevant to the foundation of education. Hopefully it would prove to be an asset for educationists scholars and students alike. 385 pp. Seller Inventory # 60105

In simple terms education is the process through which one becomes able to express one's inner feelings and thoughts properly. It is one of the most valuable and precious gifts of the divine creator for mankind as it distinguishes man from animal and thus establishes his position at the top inter alia. If we cast a glance on the religious scriptures there are a number of instance which are ample proof of the importance of education. Religion apart we also see in the day to day life that man is scaling ever new heights in every walk of life very rapidly. All the achievements we know now would not have been possible if man was ignorant or unable to read or write. Education of a person is supposed to start from the lap of mother itself. That's why whatever a child learns during infancy becomes indelible and influence directly or indirectly his/her actions every now and then. Since the inception of the universe down to the present day man has witnessed numerous ups and downs. The present form of educational edifice is the consequence of painstaking and toilsome efforts of our forefathers through whose efforts the system of education could reach us in the present shape. This comprehensive book encompassing various principles of education and all that has gone in making it rich to a great extent is but an humble attempt to carry forward the same torch which was passed on to us by our ancestors. Similarly it will benefit and cultivate the minds of the present generation for obtaining more valuable and worthy produce. This work despite its limitations would prove to be beneficial for scholars educationists researchers and students alike. 380 pp. Seller Inventory # 60394

Indraprastha Revisited is a book of the papers presented at the first ever International conference held on this most ancient and first planned city that now lies within the confines of the present Delhi, India’s National Capital. This conference was organised by Draupadi Dream Trust on 22nd and 23rd November 2016, as part of the 1st Indraprastha Festival (18th -25th Nov 2016) and was supported by Ministry of Culture, ICCR and National Museum. Renowned scholars from various fields such as Archaeology, Art, Science, Sanskrit, History, Astronomy and others participated in the conference. Their papers present to us the identification of Indraprastha, and its antiquity by way of archaeological evidence and astronomical data. Papers were also presented on inscriptions and government records identifying Indraprastha, the erstwhile Indrapat or Indapat, as being the one integral and part of the Purana Qila. Papers give insight into the governance, culture, history and legacy during Mahabharata period, and ancient Indraprastha, and the conflict between good and evil and Dharma and Adharma. The conference papers highlighted the gaps that exist in knowledge of that period. Scholars also stated unequivocally the need to showcase Indraprastha to the country and to the world, so that a correct history of Delhi and this Purana Qila, which have antiquity of several thousand years, and is not limited to 500-800 years, as apparent from existing structures and monuments of medieval era. Scholars suggest that this wrong impression needs to be corrected by exposing the site excavated by archaeologists since 1950s till 2014, and creating an exposition of international standards. Some papers threw interesting light on this aspect. Valuable recommendations given are also included here. The book will be liked by all appreciators of our ancient culture, heritage, art and history. Indraprastha revisited is a book for the Ministry of Culture to Revisit Indraprastha. (jacket).
