Winter India by Eliza Ruhamah Scidmore

It is the work of an experienced traveler and writer of travels, a book of the pleasant, fluent, chattering variety, written frankly from the tourist’s point of view. The author cares little for foreigners, and less for foreign problems; she simply likes to see things, and is clever in describing them. A good illustration of her style, which is always animated and often amusing, is afforded by the account of her first impression of Nautch dancing….

Wisdom of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar by Ed. Karishma Bajaj

SKU: 9788184302431

“You don’t have to wake up at 4 o’clock and do practice, no. You do it when you’re complete with your sleep. Don’t strain yourself. Your inner connection can only happen when you are relaxed, not if you’re tense. —
Be like a child, unassuming, knowing the more you know there is so much more to be known. Knowing only leads to awareness that you do not know so much more. That brings humility I’m saying? —
Take past as a lesson, and see what you can do in the future. That is why we should take past as destiny and future as free will, that is intelligence. —
World peace comes with individual peace. If individuals become peaceful, communities become peaceful, then the leaders of the world will also become peaceful, and we can have world peace. We need to spiritualize the politics, socialize the business and secularize the religion. —
There is no doubt that you need some money for your day-to-day survival. But money cannot buy you happiness. It’s knowledge or wisdom that brings you happiness. — When you make a new mistake, it is not a mistake; you have learnt a valuable lesson. But when you keep doing the same mistake over and over, it is a BIG mistake. —
If you have to get angry, get angry at bigger things, not the small usual mundane stuff. Get angry at corruption in the system and injustice happening around you. Everyone should speak out against corruption. —
Ego is feeling uncomfortable in the presence of someone else. Self-confidence is, feeling at home. Being natural is antidote to ego, and being natural is so complementary to confidence. It goes with confidence and is inseparable from confidence. —
The test of your peace is only when there are obstacles. Be thankful to obstacles. —
Take the Challenge. Whenever someone is nasty towards you, do something so nice that it takes him by surprise. —
If anyone any time feels lonely, depressed, unhappy or sad, just remember that you are not alone. —
Trust in yourself. Have faith in your choice of actions and the path you would be following. If you don’t trust yourself, how can you trust the Master? —
Misunderstandings happen on this planet because of distance, because there is no closeness, no one ever ‘sits next to’ the other. In one house, people live on different planets. In a town, people live in different galaxies.

Wisdom of Vivekanand by Sachin Sinhal

SKU: 818430062X

What the world wants is character. The world is in need of those whose life is one burning love—selfless. That love will make every word tell like a thunderbolt. Awake, awake, great souls!

When we can attach the mind to, or detach it from, the sense at our will, we shall really possess character. Then alone we shall have taken a long step towards freedom; before that, we are mere machines.

Fear is death, fear is sin, fear is hell, fear is unrighteousness and fear is wrong life. All the negative thoughts and ideas that are in the world have proceeded from this evil spirit of fear.

The kingdom of heaven is within us. God is within us. He is the Soul of our souls. See Him in your own soul. That is practical religion. That is freedom.
Everything must be sacrificed, if necessary, for that one sentiment: universality.

With Axe and Rifle by William Henry Giles Kingston

SKU: 6235989716291

Some time after the termination of the long war which England had waged in the cause of liberty when well-nigh all the world was up in arms against her, my father, Captain Patrick Loraine, having served for many years as a subaltern, believing that he should no longer find employment for his sword, sold out of the army, and with the proceeds of his commission in his pocket, quitting the old country, came to the United States in the hopes of making his fortune more rapidly than he could expect to do at home.

With the British Legion by G. A. Henty

SKU: 9788184305369

A library in a city house. A dining-room opens beyond a portière. The dinner-table is set. The library is furnished in red leather and dark wood. Books run to the ceiling. The carpet is indeterminate in tone. The heavy curtains are of a rich, dark crimson. A window is to be seen. The library is littered a little with the signs of feminine occupation. At one of the tables sits Mrs. Thorne. She is a young and beautiful woman, of stately presence and modest, high-bred manner. She is well-dressed—but not over-dressed—in a tea-gown such as a lady might wear in her own home when guests are not expected. The dress is cream-white; it falls open over a crimson skirt. The lamps are shaded with lace of red or of white. One with a white shade is on the table by which she sits. Her sewing materials are lying about, among books and magazines half-cut. She tries to sew upon a little boy’s lace collar, but throws her work down restlessly. Her face wears a troubled expression.

With the Night Mail: A Story of 2000 A.D. by Rudyard Kipling

SKU: 9788184306307

“At nine o’clock of a gusty winter night I stood on the lower stages of one of the G. P. O. outward mail towers. My purpose was a run to Quebec in “Postal Packet 162 or such other as may be appointed”; and the Postmaster-General himself countersigned the order. This talisman opened all doors, even those in the despatching-caisson at the foot of the tower, where they were delivering the sorted Continental mail. The bags lay packed close as herrings in the long gray under-bodies which our G. P. O. still calls “coaches.” Five such coaches were filled as I watched, and were shot up the guides to be locked on to their waiting packets three hundred feet nearer the stars.” -an excerpt

With the World’s Great Travellers, Volume 2 by Alexander von Humboldt

SKU: 9788184306557

The reflective voyager, on his first sight of New York, is baffled when he attempts to catalogue his sensations. All is so completely in contrast with the capitals of Europe. The gloriously bright sky, air that drinks like champagne, the resultant springiness of life and movement, that overdoes itself in excitement and premature exhaustion, and the obtrusively visible defects of this surface enthusiasm, monotonous streets, unfinished or unbegun city improvements, and the conspicuous lack of play-spaces for children—this is the rough portrait sketch New York draws of itself for the newcomer.

Woman, and Her Place in a Free Society by Edward Carpenter

SKU: 6235989716564

What a word is this ! In its brief compass what thousand-year-long tragedies He enshrined! Since the far-back time when in the early societies the thought of inequality had hardly arisen, and the female in her own way—as sole authenticator of birth and parentage, as guardian of the household, as inventress of agriculture and the peaceful arts, as priestess or prophetess or sharer in the councils of the tribe—was as powerful as man in his, and sometimes even more so; down to to-day, what centuries of suffering, of repression, of slave-hood, of dumbness and obscurity have been the lot of woman!

Women of Early Christianity by Alfred Brittain Mitchell Carroll

SKU: 9788184307043

Christianity introduced a new moral epoch in the course of human history. Its effect was necessarily transforming upon those who came under its sway. Being cosmopolitan in its nature, we have now to study woman as being somewhat dissociated from racial type and national manner, and we shall seek to ascertain how she met and was modified by Christian conditions. These had a larger effect upon her life than upon that of man; for, by its nature, Christianity gave an opening for the higher possibilities of her being of which the old religions took little account. In the realm of the spiritual, it, for the first time, assented to her equality with man. That the women of the first Christian centuries submitted themselves to the influence of that religion in a varying degree, the following pages will abundantly show.

He went from one to the other, and they were so beautiful that each one he looked upon seemed lovelier than the last.

Words Have Power by Ashutosh Karnatak

SKU: 9789351862178

WORDS HAVE POWER is a self-help book that recognizes the importance of words in one’s life. Positive words are the raw material fed to the mind that processes it to produce the final product in the form of behavior and actions. The good material has to go through many stages and processes to become a great one, but the material that is itself flawed in the first place can never produce the first-class outcome. Therefore, it is very important to think, use and spread positive words or self-affirmations to lay a strong foundation on which your future life is built on. Each of the 26 English alphabets mentioned in this book stands for the 26 attributes that should be inculcated in the behavior. The word-list is not all encompassing but certainly diverse and indicative of most of the desirable qualities needed to lead a successful and fulfilling life. At the end of the book are some stories that are interesting as well as inspirational. Though the people of any age can gain by reading this book, but children and youngsters can find it particularly useful for their self-development.

ऑरविल और विलबर बचपन से ही उड़ान भरने की अवधारणा के प्रति आकर्षित थे। आकाश में उड़ने की प्रेरणा उन्हें अनेक स्रोतों से मिली, जिसमें जर्मन व्यक्ति ओटो लिलियेनथल और अमेरिकी नागरिक ओक्टावे चांटू का नाम सम्मिलित था। इन दोनों ने ही ग्लाइडर के साथ उड़ान भरने की अवधारणा पर व्यापक स्तर पर काम किया था। यहाँ पर संभवतः सबसे महत्त्वपूर्ण बात यह थी कि राइट ब्रदर्स के द्वारा किए गए काम के लिए सबसे बड़ी प्रेरणा बाजों व अन्य पक्षियों की उड़ान, आकाश में पलटने या अपने पंखों को फैलाने और सिकोड़ने के करतब बने, वे इस बात को अच्छी तरह से समझ चुके थे कि यह उनके पंखों का ही कमाल था, जो उन्हें आकाश में अपना संतुलन बनाए रखने हेतु मजबूत आधार देते हैं। राइट ब्रदर्स ने सन् 1900 में पहली बार अपने द्विपंखी विमान का निर्माण करने के लिए इस अवधारणा को आधार बनाया, जिसे उन्होंने ‘विंग्स वॉर्पिंग’ का नाम दिया। उन्होंने हवा में उड़ने के लिए तैयार विमान को बनाने से पूर्व अपने मॉडल विंग्स के 200 भिन्न-भिन्न संस्करण तैयार किए। अंततः 17 दिसंबर, 1903 को विलबर और ऑरविल को सफलता प्राप्त हुई। उस दिन ऑरविल ने आकाश में उड़ान भरने और पूर्ण रूप से चालक के नियंत्रण में रहनेवाले विमान पर सवार होकर इतिहास रचा। यह कारनामा उन्होंने उत्तरी कोरोलिना के किटी हॉक के रेत के टीलों पर किया। उन्होंने 12 सेकंड तक 120 फीट की ऊँचाई पर उड़ान भरी।

A wagon that comes from the night:
A stretcher—and on it a Case:
A surgeon, who’s holding a light.
The Infantry’s bearing the brunt—
O hark to the wind-carried cheer!
A mutter of guns at the front:
A whimper of sobs at the rear.
And it’s War! ‘Orderly, hold the light.
You can lay him down on the table: so.
Easily—gently! Thanks—you may go.’
And it’s War! but the part that is not for show.

डॉ. राम के व्यक्तित्व को कुछ शब्दों में बाँचना स्वयं में एक चुनौती है। उनके जीवन और व्यक्तित्व के इतने विविध आयाम हैं, उनकी कर्म-साधना के भिन्न-भिन्न स्तर हैं कि सभी को समग्रता व सहजता से समेटना संभव नहीं। एक सदाशय शल्य चिकित्सक, संस्कारों के सहज संरक्षक, परंपराओं के पोषक, शिक्षा के उन्नायक; वे इस युग में पुरुषोत्तम राम के पर्याय ही हैं। उनके बहुआयामी व्यक्तित्व के अनेकानेक आलोक दीप अंतर्मानस में झिलमिलाते रहते हैं।
‘यादों के झरोखों से’ डॉ. राम के जीवन का दस्तावेज है। स्नेहीजन, परिजन, सहयोगी और सहपाठी सभी ने अपनी भावांजलि, संवेदनाएँ, श्रद्धासुमन, हृदयोद्गार, कलमबद्ध कर इस स्मृति ग्रंथ को संपूर्णता प्रदान की है। अपने गुरु के प्रति श्रद्धा-मिश्रित निष्ठा के भाव का संज्ञान तो सभी करते हैं, किंतु राम ने तो इतिहास ही बदल दिया। एक गुरु की अपने श्रेष्ठतम शिष्य, सहयोगी और साथी के प्रति मार्मिक संवेदना की अभिव्यक्ति, श्रद्धेय गुरुवर स्वर्गीय डॉ. के.सी.महाजन का आलेख, पुस्तक की भूमिका में स्वत: ही परिणित हो गया। हमारे अग्रज श्री ओ.पी. गुप्ता ने जिस लगन व मनन से पल-पल दिन-रात एक कर आलेख, संस्मरण तथा श्रद्धा सुमन से संवेदनाएँ समेंटी एवं सजाईं, वह एक अग्रज के अपने अनुज के प्रति अटूट, असीम, अप्रतिम, अविस्मरणीय अपनत्त्व एवं आस्था का परिचायक है। उसी आशा एवं विश्वास के साथ ‘यादों के झरोखों से’ भावी पीढ़ी को प्रेरणा का स्रोत बन प्रेरित करता रहेगा।

उपन्यास-लेखन में एक एकदम नई विधा को लेकर ‘ यज्ञ ‘ लिखा गया है । यह उपन्यासपरक जीवनी न होकर जीवनपरक उपन्यास है । किसी महानायक के महानिर्वाण के तुरंत बाद लिखा गया यह शायद पहला ही उपन्यास है ।
मराठी में यह नई विधा पहली बार लाने का श्रेय ‘ यज्ञ ‘ उपन्यास को जाता है । वास्तव में सावरकरजी सरीखे महानायक के जीवन पर तो एक सशक्‍त महाकाव्य रचा जा सकता है । इस उपन्यास में महाकाव्य के सभी रस, साहित्य के सभी प्रकार, सावरकरजी के व्याख्यान, उनकी काव्य-रचनाएँ नाटकीय प्रसंग आदि का ताना-बाना ऐसी कुशलता से बुना गया है कि न तो उसकी रोचकता कहीं कम हुई है, न ही कथ्य के साथ कोई अन्याय ।
महानायक के प्रति असीम भक्‍त‌िभाव रखते हुए भी उसके जीवन की वास्तविकता के साथ पूरी प्रामाणिकता लेखकों ने रखी है । किसी महानायक के जीवन को ऐसी ललित शैली में एक नई विधा में बाँधने का ‘ यज्ञ ‘ अपने में पहला उदाहरण है । उपन्यास जहाँ विधा में अभिनवता लिये है, वहीं वह रसप्रधान एवं रोमांचक भी है । कल्पना से सत्य अधिक सुंदर एवं अद‍्भुत होता है, इस कथन को उपन्यास अपने पन्ने-पन्ने में चरितार्थ करता है ।
कथ्य और उसकी रचना, दोनों दृष्‍ट‌ियों से, ‘ यज्ञ ‘ अभूतपूर्व रचना है । मराठी सारस्वत के लिए तो यह एक ललाम है ही, हिंदी के माध्यम से भारत भारती के भंडार को भी समृद्ध करने की क्षमता इसमें है ।

SKU: 9789351865544

यह पुस्तक या कहें विमर्श से इस तथ्य को रेखांकित करता है कि स्वाधीन भारत की 6 वर्ष लंबी यात्रा की परिणति भ्रष्टाचार, सामाजिक विखंडन, घोर व्यक्तिवादी, सत्तालोलुप राजनैतिक नेतृत्व के उभरने का दृश्य देखकर अनेक मित्रों के मन में प्रश्न उठा कि यदि संविधान हमारे राष्ट्रीय लक्ष्यों को प्राप्त करनेवाला पथ है तो 26 जनवरी, 1950 को हमने जिस सांविधानिक मार्ग पर चलना आरंभ किया, वह हमें उल्टी दिशा में क्यों ले जा रहा है? वहीं यह प्रश्न भी उभरता है कि क्या यह संविधान हमारी मौलिक रचना है या ब्रिटिश सरकार द्वारा आरोपित तथाकथित संविधान सुधार प्रक्रिया की अनुकृति? संविधान गलत है या हमारे जिस नेतृत्व ने इसे गढ़ा वह किसी भ्रम का शिकार बन गया था?
हमारे दुःखों का मूल संविधान में है। जो लोग आजादी के बाद से ही व्यवस्था परिवर्तन की पीड़ा से गुजर रहे हैं, वे इस पुस्तक से निदान पा सकते हैं। वह यह कि भारत का संविधान सन् 1935 के अधिनियम का विस्तार है। सिर्फ दो महत्त्वपूर्ण परिवर्तन इस संविधान में हैं। एक, विभिन्न वर्गों के आरक्षण को हटाया गया। दो, वयस्क मताधिकार दिया गया। प्रो. देवेंद्र स्वरूप की इस पुस्तक से यह समझ सकते हैं कि क्यों आजादी के इतने सालों बाद भी समाज का राज्यतंत्र से मेल नहीं बैठ पाया है? क्यों राज्यतंत्र देशज निष्ठाओं से दूर है? क्यों आमजन की सोच और समझ से उसका नाता नहीं जुड़ पाया? इन्हीं और ऐसे तमाम सवालों के जवाब इस पुस्तक में मिलते हैं। यह राजनीतिक इतिहास की वह पुस्तक है, जो भविष्य के सूर्योदय का भरोसा देती है।

इस पुस्तक में उन प्रश्नों का उत्तर तलाशने की कोशिश की गई है, जो पिछले लगभग आठ सौ साल के इतिहास में से पैदा हुए हैं। ये प्रश्न इस देश में प्रेतात्माओं की तरह घूम रहे हैं। इन प्रश्नों का सही उत्तर न दे पाने के कारण ही देश का विभाजन हुआ और इसी के कारण आज देश में अलगाववादी स्वर उठ रहे हैं। ऐसा नहीं कि भारत इन प्रश्नों का उत्तर देने में सक्षम नहीं है। ऐसे प्रश्न हर युग में उत्पन्न होते रहे हैं और उस काल के ऋषि-मुनियों ने उनका सही उत्तर भी दिया, जिसके कारण समाज में भीतरी समरसता बनी रही; लेकिन वर्तमान युग में जिन पर उत्तर देने का दायित्व आया, उनकी क्षमता को संकुचित राजनैतिक हितों ने प्रभावित किया और वे जानबूझकर या तो इन प्रश्नों का गलत उत्तर देने लगे या फिर गलत दिशा में खड़े होकर उत्तर देने लगे। ऐसे उत्तरों ने भारत के सांस्कृतिक परिदृश्य को धुँधला किया और आमजन को दिग्भ्रमित किया। इस पुस्तक में राजनीति की संकुचित सीमाओं से परे रहकर प्रख्यात समाजधर्मी इंद्रेश कुमार ने इन प्रश्नों से सामना किया है। आशा करनी चाहिए कि इस मंथन और संवाद से जो निकष निकलेगा, वह देश के लिए श्रेयस्कर होगा।
वर्तमान सामाजिक-राजनीतिक परिस्थितियों का वस्तुपरक व चिंतनपरक अध्ययन व व्यावहारिक उत्तर देने का सफल प्रयास है यह पुस्तक।
इस पुस्तक में प्रख्यात समाजधर्मी श्री इंद्रेश कुमार द्वारा कश्मीर समस्या को लेकर अनेक सार्वजनिक कार्यक्रमों और विचार गोष्ठियों में जो विचार व्यक्त किए, उनका संकलन है। लगभग दो दशक तक जम्मू, लद्दाख और कश्मीर में रहने के कारण लेखक की सभी वर्गों के लोगों—डोगरों, लद्दाखियों, शिया समाज, कश्मीरी पंडितों, कश्मीरी मुसलमानों, गुज्जरों, बकरवालों से सजीव संवाद रचना हुई। इस कालखंड में पूरा क्षेत्र, विशेषकर कश्मीर घाटी का क्षेत्र पाकिस्तान द्वारा प्रायोजित आतंकवाद का शिकार रहा है। अभिव्यक्ति का अवसर मिला। कश्मीर की त्रासदी को उन्होंने दूर से नहीं देखा, बल्कि नज़दीक से अनुभव किया है। इस पूरे प्रकरण में उनकी भूमिका द्रष्टा की नहीं, बल्कि भोक्ता की रही है। आतंकवाद से लड़ते हुए जिन राष्ट्रवादियों ने शहादत दे दी, उसका चलते-चलते मीडिया में कहीं उल्लेख हो गया तो अलग बात है, अन्यथा उन्हें भुला दिया गया। सरकार की दृष्टि में इस क्षेत्र के लोगों की यह लड़ाई है ही अप्रासंगिक!
जम्मू-कश्मीर की विषम-विपरीत परिस्थितियों का तथ्यपरक एवं वस्तुनिष्ठ अध्ययन और विश्लेषण का निकष है यह पुस्तक जो वहाँ की सामाजिक-राजनीतिक-सांस्कृतिक पृष्ठभूमि पर विहंगम दृष्टि देगी।
