DESCRIPTION: 

महाकवि भवभूति द्वारा रचित उत्तररामचरित संस्कृत साहित्य की अमूल्य निधि है। रामायण के (उत्तरकाण्ड) कथानक को लेकर भवभूति ने अपनी प्रतिभा का सृजन किया। सार्थकता और संवादों की स्वाभाविकता इस नाटक की प्रमुख विशेषता है। मानवहृदय की वेदना को भवभूति ने बड़ी ही खूबसूरती से व्यक्त किया है। अपने पति श्रीराम द्वारा त्यागी गई सीता का मार्मिक वर्णन पढ़कर पाठक बरबस भावुक हो उठता है।

                                                  महात्मा बुद्ध के बाद यदि किसी महापुरुष ने धर्म, समाज, राजनीति और आर्थिक धरातल पर सामाजिक क्रांति से साक्षात्कार कराने का सार्थक प्रयास किया तो वह थे-डा. भीमराव अंबेडकर। उनका सूर्य-सदृश तेजस्वी चरित्र, चंद्रमा जैसा सम्मोहक व्यवहार, ऋषियों जैसा गहन गम्भीर ज्ञान, संतों जैसा उत्सर्ग-बल और शांत स्वभाव उनके चरित्र के विभिन्न पहलू थे। उन्होंने अपना सारा जीवन समाज के उपेक्षित, दलित, शोषित और निर्बल वर्गों को उन्नत करने में लगा दिया था। सच्ची घटनाओं पर आधारित, यह जीवनीपरक उपन्यास वर्तमान पीढ़ी को निराशा और दिशाहीनता की स्थिति से ऊपर उठाकर एक जीवंत चेतन धारा से जोड़ने की दिशा में विशेष भूमिका निभाएगा। ‘युगपुरुष अंबेडकर’ के लेखक राजेन्द्र मोहन भटनागर हिन्दी के सुपरिचित और सुप्रतिष्ठित लेखक हैं। अनेक महान् पुरुषों की जीवनियां प्रस्तुत कर वे जीवनी-विधा को भी समृद्ध करते रहे हैं। यह उनकी विशिष्ट कृति है।

In the last fifty years, many able and famous writers of Gujarat have started writing biographies depicting Krishna's life in a modern context. Unfortunately, instead of introducing or interpreting the ancient traditions of Krishna's life in these biographies, these Shabda swamis have blown up balloons of their own imagination. Has added fictional occasions, characters and dialogues that are not in the ancient tradition. One such character writer has made Krishna Madari to explain the occasion of Kaliyadaman. Whatever the literary value of such additions, it is true that such representations are corrupting the ancient traditions instead of making them clear. A humble attempt has been made here to collect the fragments of the scattered tradition in the scriptures of a thousand years ago and present them in an integrated form and to capture the image of the human form of Lord Krishna, the supreme devotee of the Hindus.

With near-universal name recognition and the promise to make history as the first female occupant of the Oval Office, all seems set for Hillary to secure the one role that has eluded her to date, but what drives this most intriguing and polarising of political figures? Will she be able to shake off her past mistakes and finally secure the Democratic Party’s nomination?

There is no more stunning example in history than Alexander the Great, whose leadership skills were so immense that they still resonate some 2,000 years later. Alexander the Great reveals four leadership processes distilled from the life and extraordinary accomplishments of Alexander, King of Macedonia. Readers will learn how he: Reframed problems in order to meet seemingly insurmountable challenges, Built alliances by using his strength to generate trust and respect, not just fear, Established identity and "branded" himself a unifier, thus keeping the home base secure while continuing to expand his empire, Recognized and assimilated the cultures and symbols of different peoples, becoming a powerful and trusted figure everywhere he went. This volume relates riveting episodes from Alexander's expansion through Asia Minor, Egypt, Mesopotamia, the Middle East, the Persian Empire and India. Each example, tied to a modern-day counterpart, imparts valuable lessons from the timeless legend of one of the greatest leaders in history.

His high-profile appearances and books have fueled the surging popularity of Buddhism in the United States and throughout the West. This new, up-to-date biography provides insight into the curious and winning personality of the Dalai Lama as a boy and his wisdom as a man. His story is revealed from early family life to his experiences in the world, his education as the 14th incarnation of the Lama, his exile in India and his current struggles to help Tibet regain its independence from China. Especially helpful is the historical overview of the Tibetan crisis after the Chinese invasion. A timeline and glossary supplement the text. Though the book is written especially for high school students, it will also immensely interest general readers.

This book tells us about Einstein's childhood, the time when he left school and how he debunked people's belief that he was dumb and lacked intelligence. The book describes his childhood in Germany and then his teens in Italy. Einstein took a diploma exam in Zurich and then failing to find a suitable job, he worked as a patent clerk in Switzerland. Here, he wrote some of the most important scientific papers in the field of theoretical physics.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              The writers go into a great detail about Albert Einstein's scientific contributions, which include the famous paper on the photoelectric effect. Einstein was later awarded a Nobel Prize for this work. Then, he wrote his famous paper on the theory of relativity which became a founding principal for the nuclear bomb. He was one of the scientists who convinced American President Roosevelt that the Nazis were attempting to make a nuclear bomb. In 1952, Albert Einstein was offered the Presidency of Israel. He was a pacifist his entire life and fought for civil rights. He died in 1955 of internal bleeding and his brain has been stored for study by the future generations.

To millions of people around the world, she is the embodiment of American spirit and entrepreneurial success. While there is a near continual barrage of information in the media about this larger-than-life woman, this biography of Oprah Winfrey takes readers past all the hype and hyperbole and presents a candid, balanced portrait of the flesh-and-blood woman herself. The dramatic events in her life, both the struggles and the successes, are detailed with factual accounts that guide readers through the complex and sometimes controversial, course of Oprah's life from her childhood in Mississippi, to her current position of extraordinary success. This penetrating book also examines the myriad areas of Oprah's immeasurable impact on the people close to her and the public at large, from her literary and political influences, to her candor about her own ups and downs with mental and physical health issues.

In this new biography, students will follow Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu from her humble Albanian birth to worldwide celebrity as Mother Teresa. The nun who attended to the dying and diseased in Calcutta, India and established her Missionaries of Charity around the world had to prove to the hierarchy in the patriarchal Catholic system, even in the Vatican, that she was capable of handling each project she proposed. With her vision to live and work among the 'poorest of the poor' was founded a new order that tended to society's outcasts. This narrative chronicles the expansion and success of Mother Teresa's order and the eventual recognition that was showered on her efforts. This increasing attention led to scrutiny and criticism of her ideology, methods of care and financing. The accusations of hypocrisy, among others, are discussed, as is her controversial beatification. Readers will be challenged to consider for themselves whether Mother Teresa deserves to be sainted.

The revolutionary, anti-Imperialist ideals he lived and died for now appeal to a new generation of 21st-century men and women. Che Guevara: A Biography provides an introduction to the famous revolutionary leader and reveals how his early life prepared him for leadership in the Cuban Revolution. It also explores his revolutionary activities in Africa and Bolivia, as well as the circumstances surrounding his tragic death on October 9, 1967. The book includes original information on the 1997 discovery of the hidden remains of his body and on the celebration of his life and ideals by the socialist regime in Cuba. It also looks at the reasons why leftist political leaders, movements and governments in Latin America and the Caribbean still pay homage to this charismatic man.

Following intense international pressure on the Apartheid government, he was finally freed in 1990. Everyone should know the life story of Nelson Mandela, one of the greatest leaders of all time, the first black president of South Africa and a major world statesman. His inspiring life receives a fresh retelling in this new biography written especially for general readers and students. This volume is an authoritative and enjoyable way not only to understand a great man, but also to understand a critical time in world history and race relations. Through the landmark presidency of South Africa and post Nobel Peace Prize years, up until today, he has continued as a peacemaker and agent for change. A timeline, photo essay and selected bibliography complement the narrative.

He is bold and audacious, his rhetoric fiery and compelling. He encourages cross-over appeal, discourse, affiliation and has drawn many Americans, including today's youth, into politics. This is the story of Barack Obama, a man of mixed race heritage who inspires, listens, compromises and is often bipartisan. From his childhood in Hawaii and Indonesia to becoming the fifth African-American senator in U.S. history and later, a presidential candidate, this well-researched biography traces his hardships and successes, the people who most influenced his career, his personal life and his meteoric rise to pop icon status. Rounded out with photos, a timeline, a bibliography and an index, here is a must read for high school and undergraduate students of current events and political science.

This biography is a stellar introduction to the foremost leader of the civil rights movement. In gripping narrative style, it describes young Martin as son and grandson of formidable preachers, drawn to his calling as a minister too, but as one who would take on the entrenched racism of the South and North, through a nonviolent movement that changed the course of American history. King's story is compelling, right from his early life in an insular community of blacks in Atlanta, to his education at Morehouse College, Crozer Theological Seminary and Boston University, to his courtship of Coretta Scott leading into the early days of the civil rights movement and his role of leadership in the major demonstrations and sit-ins that took place, mainly in the South. We gain critical insight into the Kennedy and Johnson Administrations, as King negotiated with the presidents for equal rights for blacks.

This book contains 39 powerful lessons of personal change, gleaned from Gandhi's life. It offers us invaluable advice on creating and leading an enlightened life, a more meaningful, purpose-driven, self-aware and socially responsible life. Drawing from a diverse range of fields such as psychology, management, leadership, philosophy and spirituality, Anand Kumarasamy explains and illustrates each of these lessons in language that is simple, vivid and highly interesting. These lessons are based on timeless principles which, if deeply reflected upon and integrated into our daily lives, can powerfully transform us while positively impacting the world around us.
