About this Item: D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd and N.K. Bose Memorial Foundation, 2006. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. The volume presents views on life from the traditional as well as modern perspectives to come up with many interpretations. Indologists, anthropologists, sociologists, philosophers and physical and social scientists profess that traditional thought and modern science offer two different world-views on life: the first encompassing a wholeness of life, and the other explaining the universe and life with ideas of the realm of matter alone. Referring to various ancient texts as well as thoughts of social scientists based on empirical studies, the contributors delve into the Upanishadic and Vedic concepts of life, and the Hindu astrological and ayurvedic perception of life. They examine the Christian perspective of life as well. Discussing the theme from the viewpoint of physical law, the book surveys evolution of life and extinction theories, focusing on development of life over 600 million years from simple to complex. It ponders over questions like radical difference between living and non-living matter though both consist of molecules. Connecting science to societal development, it deals with ancient community theories on life and nature taking specific ethnic communities like the Mesoamericans and the Santals in India as examples. The book is an all-inclusive and extensive study of traditional and scientific perspectives on the life origin, urges and responses, meaning and essence of life, and its development.

Transnational migrants: Punjabi women in Canada/Gurpreet Bal. 16. Family abuse against Punjabi women in Canada/Neelu Kang. Index. The process of globalisation has been affecting the Indian society in various ways. Though it is primarily an economic phenomenon, its impact in other walks of life is being strongly felt and there seems no possibility of its disappearance. Taking the northwest region of India as the focus of analysis, this volume brings together sixteen contributions made by the scholars working in this area to focus on four issues, namely, identity formation, development, gender and the diaspora. Within the large perspective of each aspect that has been examined, various issues and controversies have been provided scholarly treatment. In the backdrop of the fact that globalisation is here to stay, the issue of how to handle it so as to benefit from its positive aspects is a normative one that requires certain policy measures. In the process, the political economy of development and the role of the state have remained the major focus of investigation. The transnationalisation of the Indians has gained recognition in the light of the recent announcement by the Prime Minister that the government was taking into consideration the issue of granting dual citizenship to diasporic Indians. The growth in the studies on the Indian diaspora has also lent credence to the view that diaspora communities are important components of the globalisation process. 302 pp. Seller Inventory # 50089

The steering committee. Towards a Functional Competition Policy for India comes at a time when the country is poised to implement a new competition law whilst there is a lack of understanding of the nature and extent of prevalence of different types of anti competitive practices. The study helps in getting a better understanding of the competition and economic regulation scenario in India. Contrary to popular perception the study does not treat competition policy as just adoption and implementation of a competition law but looks at it as a broader policy framework where competition is encouraged as a market process to generate competitive outcomes. Accordingly the report comprises 22 chapters giving comprehensive treatment to competition policy in India covering both systemic as well as sectoral issues. The study tracks the evolution of competition policy and law in India discusses the interface of competition policy with Government Policies (at the federal as well as State level) and consumer welfare and identifies competition and economic regulation issues in agriculture manufacturing and services. Towards a Functional Competition Policy for India is the result of the effort put in by top experts in the country. The study will be useful to all those who are interested in economic policies in general and competition policy in particular. The report itself is being published as two separate volumes. This one is an overview which carries all papers in a prTcis form so that a busy reader can go through them easily and get a flavour of what the issues are. The second is a more detailed report carrying all chapters in greater depth and is meant for the policy community particularly those involved in research. Both the reports will serve as curtain raisers and as a road map for future more in depth work. 248 pp. Seller Inventory # 56403

Index."Muslims constitute the second largest group of people after the Hindus. Their participation in the socio-economic as well as political process is considered of vital importance. Since the post-independence, India opted for a planned approach for growth and development encompassing all sectors of the populace it is matter of concern as to how far the Muslims have benefited from the state intervention in the growth process. The proposed book makes an attempt to look into the different segments of this problem. This theme is discussed under four broad parts-introduction, employment scenario, socio-economic status and general. The papers included are the contributions of eminent people belonging to different vocations, viz. academics, administration, who have presented their concern vividly. Some of us have been arguing for quite sometime now that though there may be general backwardness but the Muslims as a class have been left out for one reason or the other from the main stream. In view of this we have tried to take up the issue for discussion and this volume is a result of that. It is hoped that this would generate further debate for a better tomorrow."

About this Item: Orient BlackSwan, 2016. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. About the Book Revisiting India?s Partition: New Essays on Memory, Culture, and Politics is a contributory volume on the Partition of India on the eve of Independence. There are 19 essays in the book drawn from interdisciplinary backgrounds on several topics pertaining to the Partition, including decolonisation and post-colony, economic development and nation-building, cross-border skirmishes, terrorism, and nationalism. The volume covers areas beyond Punjab and Bengal and includes analyses of Sindh, Kashmir, Hyderabad, and more broadly South India, the Northeast, and Burma.

Useful for scholars in literary and cultural studies, history, political studies, sociology, Asian/South Asian studies, and women?s studies, the book has a thought-provoking introduction which provides a multi-vocal, multi-focal, transnational commentary on the Partition in relation to motifs, texts, and regions that have earlier been ignored.

Social development of late has been accepted as a strong and vital component of economic development. The five decades of development experience in the country had clearly brought home its relevance. The experience of other developed nations also substantiates that without developing the social sector a country cannot attain the status of a developed nation because it is only through the process of social development the element of sustainability could be provided to the process of growth. The anomalies and disparities that have cropped up during all these years of planning have largely been on account of the mismatch between the level of economic and social development. The level of social development in general has been at quite low levels across board. The present volume seeks to critically examine and evaluate the performance of some of the aspects of development that come under the purview of social sector and suggests appropriate policy interventions. 264 pp. Seller Inventory # 57959

Recent debates on postcolonial literatures have increasingly come to resort to the term hybridity. The present volume seeks to discuss the concept of hybridity in relation to (expatriate) Indian writing. The individual essays are partly theoretical and partly practical. They trace a variety of hybrid constellations in literary texts attempt to relate the concept of hybridity to postcolonialism and seek to illustrate typical developments within Indian literature in English in their relationship to the hybridization of cultural processes in a (post) colonial environment. Authors discussed include Salman Rushdie V.S. Naipaul Hanif Kureishi Sara Suleri Bharati Mukherjee and many others. Among the topics on which individual essays focus are feminist issues the use of exoticist and oriental clichTs (for instance the topos of Eastern chaos) of ritual and community of displacement and migrancy. The collection accommodates a variety of methodological approaches but emphasizes the theoretical perspectives particularly postcolonial and feminist theory. Homi Bhabha's theories figure prominently in the volume but also give rise to some critical comments and rewritings. The collection unites voices from Europe with scholarly contributions from the United State thereby formally instituting a kind of cross Atlantic hybridity of the scholarly discourse on India hybridity and postcolonialism. 294 pp. Seller Inventory # 61701
