About this Item: Hind Pocket Books Pvt. Ltd, 2003. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. Pinjar, written by Amrita Pritam, is set against the backdrop of Partition of India. This Hindi book was originally a 1950 Punjabi novel. It has been translated into several languages, including Khushwant Singh?s translation into English. Summary of the Book Puro, a Hindu girl, is kidnapped by Rashid, a Muslim boy. She somehow manages to return to her parents from Rashid?s home, but her parents refuse to accept her. They claim that her return might make Rashid?s clan slaughter them all, as his family has an ancestral rivalry with theirs. Puro returns to Rashid and she gradually develops affection towards him. The novel not only depicts the troubled times during the Partition, but also poignantly describes the battles a woman has to fight with the outside world and within herself. It highlights the state of Indian woman in rural areas as well. Pinjar was adapted into a major motion picture in Hindi, Printed Pages: 160. Seller Inventory # 100432

About this Item: Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd, 2009. Softcover. Condition: New.

It is a practical guide and reference work in language curriculum and evaluation. The Dictionary is divided into three parts. Part I includes 6 discussion papers, 3 each on curriculum and evaluation which provide support material for users, in these two disciplines. These papers describe in brief the nature, purpose and scope of each discipline reflecting the major constructs, academic issues and focal points of reform. Part II consists of the main reference material intended to give short definitions of selected terms?which cover all the four major curriculum components as well as cognitive and non-cognitive areas of assessment?ranging from achievement and ability testing to?interests, attitudes and personality testing. Besides, many terms from the related fields of educational statistics, educational research and psychometrics?having relevance to the measurement theory?are also included. Part III of the book contains a list of 12 acronyms and abbreviations relevant to these disciplines as well as various organisations referred to, for ready reference of the users. The book includes over 155 entries covering all the curriculum components as well as areas of educational evaluation. An attempt has been made to select all the significant terms, define them in a simple, concise way?reflecting their central meaning?and present them in a lucid, easy-to-use manner. By and large, the terminology selected has international use, application and accessibility. It is expected that curriculum developers, examination agencies, evaluators, teacher educators and those who follow special courses in curriculum and evaluation through regular or corresponding courses would find this book handy for reference, while teachers under training and those in service would find it useful as a material resource and for reference purpose.

About this Item: Ebooks2go Inc, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The book relates to the period as back as 1893 when my 50 years grandfather married my 22 years old grandmother. My ancestors were extremely poor since there was not sufficient yield from the agricultural land, it having gone barren for want of adequate sources of irrigation, and also due to the low prices of the produce. My grandfather passed away in 1901 when my father was just 3 years old and there was nothing left behind to enable the family to make both ends meet. Consequently, my father, on turning 7 years, was deployed by my grandmother as a domestic servant in various houses to clean dirty utensils and clothes. Subsequently in the year 1921 my father, when he was 23 years old, was taken to the nearby town Rukkan (District Mandi Bahauddin) and allowed to join a partnership business by his cousin (father s sister s son). My father got married in 1930 and we three brothers were born. In the year 1939, my father was expelled by his cousin from the business since his own sons had grown up and thus he did not need my father s services. It was then that my father started his own business. It was a great success and my father was now among rich persons. To his bad luck, the partition of the country took place in 1947 and consequently, our family had to flee from Pakistan empty handed. We finally reached Delhi in 1955. We faced very bad days here in Delhi but ultimately, with the concerted hard work put in by my family, we achieved a very comfortable position. My next generations now comprise of doctors, lawyers and Managers. One of my sons has since settled in Australia and is well placed there. My granddaughter has taken up studies to be an eye specialist in a reputed University in Melbourne. Seller Inventory # APC9781618137388

About this Item: Viva Books Private Limited, 2004. Softcover. Condition: New. This book is portrait of modern day India through the eyes of Alexandra Sanchez Gavito, a foreigner who came to the country two years ago as the wife of Julio Faesler Carlisle, the Mexican Ambassador to India. She is deeply interested in gender issues but, unfortunately, in India and abroad, Feminists tend to focus mainly on its most dramatic aspects. Very little is said about what women have had to endure in male societies, which usually categorize them as a specific sub caste. Forever Focusing on their trials and tribulations, however, we tend to ignore their endeavours that have transformed many to archetypes of strength, courage and creativity. Their deeds and achievements constitute a legacy for future generations. The author takes us by the hand on her personal ?discovery? of the Indian woman as Shakti, the everlasting female energy, without which the world cannot find due order and balance.

About this Item: Ebooks2go Inc, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The book relates to the period as back as 1893 when my 50 years grandfather married my 22 years old grandmother. My ancestors were extremely poor since there was not sufficient yield from the agricultural land, it having gone barren for want of adequate sources of irrigation, and also due to the low prices of the produce. My grandfather passed away in 1901 when my father was just 3 years old and there was nothing left behind to enable the family to make both ends meet. Consequently, my father, on turning 7 years, was deployed by my grandmother as a domestic servant in various houses to clean dirty utensils and clothes. Subsequently in the year 1921 my father, when he was 23 years old, was taken to the nearby town Rukkan (District Mandi Bahauddin) and allowed to join a partnership business by his cousin (father s sister s son). My father got married in 1930 and we three brothers were born. In the year 1939, my father was expelled by his cousin from the business since his own sons had grown up and thus he did not need my father s services. It was then that my father started his own business. It was a great success and my father was now among rich persons. To his bad luck, the partition of the country took place in 1947 and consequently, our family had to flee from Pakistan empty handed. We finally reached Delhi in 1955. We faced very bad days here in Delhi but ultimately, with the concerted hard work put in by my family, we achieved a very comfortable position. My next generations now comprise of doctors, lawyers and Managers. One of my sons has since settled in Australia and is well placed there. My granddaughter has taken up studies to be an eye specialist in a reputed University in Melbourne. Seller Inventory # APC9781618137388
