Darklands

Darklands

The timeless tale of love retold
India is reeling from an environmental catastrophe, water has replaced oil as the most valuable commodity and our cities have become nightmarish places infested with gangs, secretive corporations and powerful Religious figures. An advanced form of Technology enables the manufacture of humans in laboratories. In this ever-frightening world, Haksh, born in a lab, does what he shouldn’t have: he falls in love with a human. Darklands—a radical reworking of Emily Brontë’s classic, Wuthering Heights—is a coming-of-age novel about violence, revenge, transgression, boundaries and, above all, love: both all-consuming and redemptive. Dark and bleak, it heralds Arnav Das Sharma as a major new voice in Indian YA fiction.

I’m Rivanah Bannerjee, a young and independent girl living alone in Mumbai. My parents love me, my boyfriend adores me and I have a great job. But here’s the thing: my life is in danger. Someone’s been following me, watching my every move, trying to control my life.
At first I thought it was a harmless prank to gain my attention. My roomie thinks he is a secret admirer. Is he? BTW, I call him Stranger.
But why am I, of all people, of any Interest to him? Unless there is something about my own story that I do not know . . .

India’s War: The Making of Modern South Asia 1939-1945

Between 1939 and 1945 India underwent an extraordinary and irreversible change. Hundreds of thousands of Indians suddenly found themselves in uniform, fighting in the Middle East, North and East Africa, Europe and something simply never imagined-against a Japanese army poised to invade eastern India. By the end of the war, the Indian Army had become the largest volunteer force in the conflict, consisting of 2.5 million men, while many others had offered their industrial, agricultural and Military labour.
In India's War, historian Srinath Raghavan Paints a compelling picture of battles abroad and of life on the Home front, arguing that World War II is crucial to explaining how and why colonial rule ended in South Asia. The war forever altered the country's social landscape and when the dust settled, India had emerged as a major Asian power with her feet set firmly on the path toward Independence. From Gandhi's early support of Britain's war efforts to the crucial Burma Campaign, Raghavan's authoritative and vivid account shows how India's economy, Politics and People were forever transformed, laying the groundwork for the emergence of modern South Asia.

This trauma, accompanied by his Personal losses, informs his poetry, evidenced in Divan-EGhalib, containing 235 Urdu ghazals redolent with a sense of loss, grief and a plangent longing for a vanished way of life. Yet, what sets his Poetry apart is an
irrepressible sense of humour, Energy and linguistic delight that drive his darkest lamentations.
In A Tribute to Ghalib, Azra Raza and Sara Suleri Goodyear select twenty-one ghazals that illustrate the astonishing range of Ghalib's many voices and the ideas that populate his poetry. Every ghazal is accompanied by an introduction, a literal translation and a detailed commentary, shedding light on the complexities of the individual sher as well as the ghazal as a whole. This book will be invaluable not only to the Ghalib aficionado but also the lay reader.

Philosophia Perrenis Series 2: Osho on Pythagoras

My message to humanity is a new man. Less than that won't do. Not something modified, not something continuous with the past but utterly discontinuous.'

Osho named Pythagoras 'a seeker of truth par excellence'.
In this second collection of talks on the timeless laws of existence (Philosophia Perennis), Osho talks about how the combination of these seemingly polar opposites creates a unique meeting of Religion and science. With the wisdom of Pythagoras, Osho blends in his insight to topics that include psychoanalysis, education, politics, revolution, sex and religion, making this book an extraordinary read.

A lion on the loose; a barking cat; smoke and a bridal veil.
In an indeterminate Future in Toronto, People can now live lives of two or three ‘generations’; when the Time feels right, a person can transition into the next generation. Current Personal History becomes irretrievable, replaced by an ideal life story of choice: a neatly concocted fiction which aids in constant rejuvenation. But one day, a strange-looking man—Presley Smith—arrives in the office of Dr Frank Sina one day, presenting symptoms of Leaked Memory Syndrome or Nostalgia; random scenes from a previous generation flash persistently through his mind. When the Department of Internal Security begins to take an Interest in Presley’s case, he goes into hiding and a public search ensues. Who exactly is Presley and what does this mean for life as his fellow citizens know it?
Dr Sina—rejuvenated in his second or third generation and feeling financially secure but sexually inadequate—struggles to solve this difficult case, even as he deals with his own life. And through it all there is the spectre of the Long Border, separating the rich North and the violence and famine of the failed states. Readers will enjoy this refreshing new turn for Vassanji, as one of the finest Indian writers in English takes us into exciting new territory.

The Last Vicereine: A Novel

The Last Vicereine: A Novel

It was the spring of 1947 when Lord and Lady Mountbatten arrived in New Delhi. India was on the brink of civil war. The reluctant Vicereine was a rebel, a rule-breaker. She was a troubled soul, a great beauty, a firecracker. But there was more to Edwina than met the eye. The glamour was a façade; behind it was a highly intelligent woman of influence and power.

The only one to truly understand her for who she was was Jawahar, her friend, confidant and so much more. No one could have imagined the maelstrom of intrigue, and the Events and Relationships that would change their lives and those of millions of Indians forever. Set amid the turmoil of Partition, The Last Vicereine is a heartbreaking story of the birth of two nations, of love, grief, tragedy, inhumanity and the triumph of hope.

Ghaffar Khan: Nonviolent Badshah of the Pakhtuns

Ghaffar Khan: Nonviolent Badshah of the Pakhtuns

Born into the Muhammadzai tribe, from the Charsadda valley in the Pakhtun heartland, Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan was a passionate believer in the nonviolent core of Islam and sought to wean his people-the fierce warrior Pakhtuns or Pathans of the North-West Frontier Province-from their violent traditions and fight for a separate Pakhtun homeland that would no longer be a buffer between Russia and Britain in the Great Game. In 1929 came Mahatma Gandhi's call for nonviolent resistance against British rule and Badshah Khan responded by raising the Khudai Khidmatgars (Servants of God), an army of 1,00,000 Men who pledged themselves to the service of mankind and nonviolence as a creed. For this and for his steadfast devotion to his principles, this towering figure was imprisoned for a total of twenty-seven years, first by the British and later by the Pakistani government. This is a perceptive Biography that offers fresh insights into the life and achievements of an extraordinary man, Drawing close parallels with the life of Mahatma Gandhi, his brother in spirit. The author looks at Ghaffar Khan 'with the spectacles of today rather than those of 1947', emphasizing that for People in the twenty-first century who live in the shadow of 9/11, Badshah Khan's unwavering commitment to nonviolence and Hindu-Muslim unity offers valuable lessons.
