About this Item: Penguin Books India/Puffin, 2007. Softcover. Condition: New. I was then about seven or eight. I had no useful role to play in this world; and that old palki, too, had been dismissed from all forms of useful employment . . .? Hidden inside an ancient palanquin on a hot, lonely afternoon, a young boy sets off on an imaginary adventure. He encounters gangs of bandits, arrives at palaces where kings bathe in sandalwood-scented water, and the hunter accompanying him gets rid of the tiger lurking in the forest with a bang! of his gun. The boy, gifted with a vivid imagination and a sensitive mind, grew up to become one of India?s greatest poets and thinkers. In Boyhood Days Rabindranath Tagore recounts his growing up years with gentle wit and humour. He describes life in nineteenth-century Kolkata when the only light in the evening came from castor-oil lamps; when hackney carriages raced through the city?s streets and women travelled in palanquins to the Ganga for their bath. He writes about his early love for music and poetry, the myriad influences that shaped his thinking and about the other members of his large, gifted family. Boyhood Days brings to life an era long past and traces the journey of an icon from childhood to the time he takes his first steps in the world of literature. Printed Pages: 144.

About this Item: Seagull Books, Kolkata, India, 2004. Hard Cover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. '. . . one day, Sharan arrived. His virile body, his golden hair, the look that glowed in his pale eyes, intense, brooding-all of this threw her into a turmoil. Subhadra fell madly in love.' A beautiful young man condemned to death for a crime of passion; his lover, the beautiful courtesan whom he kills but continues to mourn and yearn for; and a lonely young widow burning with unrequited desire. This love triangle set in twelfth century Bengal, moving between the royal city of Gaur and the forests and rivers of rural Bengal, centres on the fate of the romtha, the branded criminal who awaits his own death. Ironically named Sharan-refuge-there is no refuge for the protagonist of this tale of passion, vengeance and the overwhelming hunger for life. MAHASWETA DEVI is one of India's foremost writers. Her powerful, satiric fiction has won her recognition in the form of the Sahitya Akademi (1979), Jnanpith (1996) and Ramon Magsaysay (1996) awards, amongst several other literary honours. She was also awarded the Padmasree in 1986, for her activist work amongst dispossessed tribal communities. PINAKI BHATTACHARYA is a consultant, teacher, writer and actor who lives and works in Calcutta. In the Name of the Mother : four stories Intro. and Tr. by Radha Chakravarty ISBN 81 7046 211 8 Fiction/Women's Studies Price : Rs 275 ?9.95 $ 14.95 His mother's gone, there's no one to cook hot rice when it's evening . . . No one to say, 'Son, sit near my lap and eat.' 'Ma, from Dusk to Dawn' is the story of a woman from a nomadic tribe, catapulted by her circumstances into the role of a spiritual mother whose so-called mystical powers depend upon her denial of maternal affection towards her own son during daylight hours. 'Sindhubala' describes the anguish of a childless woman forced to play the role of a semi-divine healer called upon to save other people's offspring. 'Jamunabati's Mother' offers a stringent critique of a consumerist society indifferent to those on the margins and 'Giribala' presents the plight of a village woman whose daughters are trafficked by their own father, to pay for the house he dreams of building. The stories in this volume are linked by a common thread: the idea of the mother. They represent a range of responses to the concept of the maternal, exposing how the traditional deification of motherhood in India often conceals a collective exploitation and attempt to restrict women to their socially prescribed roles while denying them the right to articulate their individual needs and desires. At the same time, they also show the strategies evolved by women to survive and circumvent the repression inflicted on them by social norms. The maternal thus emerges as an ambivalent concept, with both restrictive and emancipatory potential Twist in the Folktale Jokumaraswami/CHANDRASEKHAR KAMBAR Pebet/H. KANHAILAL Charandas Chor/HABIB TANVIR With an Introduction by Ananda Lal ISBN : 81 7046 229 0 Playscript Price : Rs 200 ?14.95 $ 20.95 'What could possibly ally a southern fertility drama from Karnataka, an eastern tale from Manipur about a bird family fighting a cat, and a northern story rendered into Chhattisgarhi about a truthful thief?' -Ananda Lal Each of the playwrights in this collection takes a folktale and turns it into a contemporary experimental play, intervening in the traditional material and reshaping conventions from an urban perspective. Although the folk and rural elements remain embedded in the body of the narratives, it is interesting to note the shifts and intersections which occur in the process of rendering folklore as a present-day performative text. Jokumaraswami by leading Kannada playwright and poet CHANDRASEKHAR KAMBAR is a vibrant, earthy play which creatively reworks the folk myth of a phallic god of fertility into a powerfully contemporary anti-feudal message. Pebet is a folktale about a mother bird fighting to protect her children from a predatory cat politicized by H. KANHAILAL, who transforms this famili. Seller Inventory # 000986

About this Item: Penguin Books India/Puffin, 2010. Softcover. Condition: New. Poet, novelist, painter, musician and Nobel Laureate, Rabindranath Tagore was one of modern India?s greatest literary figures. This collection brings together some of his best works?poems, short stories and plays in one volume. Be it the wit, magic and lyricism of his poetry or the vividly etched social milieu of his stories, or the sheer power and vibrancy of his plays, Tagore?s versatility and unceasing creativity come alive in these writings. The title play ?The Land of Cards? is a satire against the bondage of orthodox rules, while in ?The Post Office?, a child suffocated by his confined existence dreams of freedom in the world outside. From a son?s cherished desire to protect his mother in the poem ?Hero? to a fruit-seller longing for his daughter faraway in the story ?Kabuliwala?, Tagore?s works convey his humanism and his deep understanding of human relationships.

About this Item: Cambridge University Press/Zubaan Publication, 2007. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. The body as social and cultural text provides a rich site for creative experimentation in this collection of short stories by contemporary women writers of South Asia. In a world that tends to equate the body with biology, and femininity with the reproductive function, these writers from Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka interrogate these assumptions and reinscribe the body as a source of resistance and self-empowerment. Identity, history, myth, scientific experiment, social heirarchies, sexuality, nationalism, violence, ethics and ecology are interwoven issues for which the body in these stories becomes a powerful signifier. Together, these bodymaps chart a subversive female geography that startles with its boldly inclusive vision. Contents Acknow1edgements Introduction The Offspring Dim Light The Bell The Flower Vase Sindhubala Once Again A Matter of Choice The Photographs Fire Unfaithful Servants Double War Abyss The Man Who Became a Bear Achilles? Heel The Sandal Trees Contributors Printed Pages: 216. Seller Inventory # 11094
