  • THE ‘OTHER’ SHANGRI-LA:: Journeys through the Sino-Tibetan frontier in Sichuan- Shivaji Das

    Sale! 284.00 240.00

    The ‘Other’ Shangri-La is a work of narrative non-fiction based on Shivaji Das and his wife’s journey through the SinoTibetan frontier land of western Sichuan.It describes the rugged landscape of this region that comprises 7,000-metre-high mountains, deep gorges, vast grasslands and the world’s most dangerous roads. It also explores the region’s history and the peculiarities of its scattered settlements: Litang—the world’s highest town that is also the birthplace of important lamas; Larung—the world’s largest monastery and highest slum; Danba—a ‘Beauty Valley’ famed since antiquity for its good-looking and strong-minded women; Yading—a pilgrim circuit once terrorized by bandit monks; and Kangding—a small town that gave birth to China’s favourite love song.

    Along their journey, the travelling duo indulged in several adventures that are written about humorously in this book—staying with nomad families, debating with monks on reviving Buddhism in China, getting spooked by a bone-collector at a sky-burial site, becoming investigators in a love triangle in the ‘Beauty Valley’, and running away from paparazzi tourists who mistook the travellers as participants in a local beauty contest.

    Above all, this book explores in detail the lives and cultures of the people inhabiting these remote lands who are now subject to turbulent socio-economic factors. It also explores the testy relationship between Hans and Tibetans in what is arguably the most restless of the Tibetan-inhabited areas in China.

  • The Babri Masjid Ram Mandir Dilemma- Madhav Godbole

    Sale! 600.00 449.00

    The Babri Masjid-Ram Mandir Dilemma: An Acid Test for India’s Constitution forcefully asserts that the Babri Masjid could have been saved by the timely intervention of Rajiv Gandhi in the initial years before political positions hardened, V.P. Singh remaining firm after promulgating an ordinance vesting the specified area in and around the Babri Masjid in the Central government, and, P.V. Narasimha Rao taking timely action when the Babri Masjid was under serious threat.

    Written by Madhav Godbole, former Union Home Secretary and Secretary, Justice, who was closely associated with the events when the Babri Masjid was demolished, the book provides rare insights through its comprehensive and detached analysis. It throws light on how all major Constitutional bodies failed in discharging their responsibilities.

    After the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, India is being perceived by some as a Hindu country. Strengthening secularism is its foremost challenge. The book is a must-read for leaders of public opinion, parliamentarians, jurists, media stalwarts, professionals, administrators, and the young generation. For, what is at stake is India’s future.”

    Dr Madhav Godbole was Union Home Secretary when the Babri Masjid was demolished in December 1992. He subsequently took voluntary retirement in March 1993. Pune-based Godbole, who also served as Justice Secretary, has held several high positions in the bureaucracy in the 1980s and early 1990s.

  • The Perfect Encounter- Arun Harkare

    Sale! 238.00 200.00

    ‘The Perfect Encounter’ has been a dream and ambition especially after seeing the court proceedings. Since last 30 years I have been writing police stories. I have seen many criminals caught by police. Police department do lot of hard work to catch hold of criminals. Years get investigated during investigation but when these criminals are taken to court, they get bail and even clean chit in many times. That’s because nobody is ready to speak against them. Criminals do out of court settlement with witnesses by threatening them or paying them and if that doesn’t work, even by killing them. People are aware of this so nobody comes forward. All the hard work done by police goes in vain.
    In some cases, police gets witness and criminals get punishment. The gangsters or criminals go in jail but they pay money or put pressure on jailor and enjoy the life in jail. At times, some powerful forces from outside make sure those criminals get all the comforts of life within jail. The money people pay in taxes is spent on salary of judges, government lawyers and jail people and this investment is not for a week or month but for 10 to 15 years.
    We don’t have sufficient jails so judges give criminals bail. Criminals come out and do crime again. Police again start investigation and cycle goes on.
    Comparing to other countries, we have huge population but limited police force. There is lot of political interference too. Against all the odds, police is expected to control the crime and maintain law and order.
    What we should do to stop crime? The novel tries to address the same issue.
