DESCRIPTION:

How horribly wrong can a boy’s dream of owning a pair of full pants go? Set in a small town in Andhra Pradesh, Ranga Half-Pants is a breath-taking, coming-of-age tale of courage, love and friendship.

Ranganathan aka Ranga, 14, goes to school after Dasara holidays to discover that he is the only boy in his class still wearing half-pants. All the other boys have moved on to full trousers making Ranga the butt of cruel jokes and bullying. Things reach a real low when his arch-nemesis, Joel, becomes friends with Ranga’s best friend, Kaivalya.

Prasad, 24, is a man forced to live by the sword. Now he wants to give it all up for the love of his life, Tabassum. His rivals, however, have other plans for him.

The worlds of Ranga and Prasad clash on a fateful, violent night. Will Ranga get his full pants? Will Prasad outwit his foes?

                                        A NOVEL Meet Raj Kumar Reddy and his brother in life, Iqbal Ali Mohammad Khan. They are Gandhians. Peace-lovers. Truth-seekers. At least in intention if not yet in action. Means what? As Iqbal puts it, “how can we say we are pursuing truth if we do nothing but drink tea and go to office and eat dinner and love our families? If we say pursuit, then we must pursue.” And so, when the price of onion increases by hundreds of percents, they set about pursuing the truth. After all, an onion problem is never a small problem in India. Goverments have fallen because of the onion problem. Murders have been committed because of onion problem. And these are just the facts. The rumors are much, much worse. They say that the 1947 partition between India and Pakistan was thirty-five percent due to onion problem. Current border disputes with China are minimum eighty percent related to onion problem. After all, China is the number one producer of onion and India is number two. Onion requires land for cultivation, and therefore any land dispute is almost definitely related to the desire to move ahead in the onion rankings! Shamelessly trivializing everything from Indo-Pak relations and terrorism to food-shortage and foreign-policy, The Gandhian Adventures of Raj & Iqbal is a quirky, desi satire about friendship and patriotism in the Indian subcontinent. Zubin J. Shroff writes unique, entertaining, eclectic novels, many of which contain elements of satire, drama, and surrealism.

Young and beautiful Mayuri, wife of affluent businessman Vimal, is crushed as she fails to conceive even with medication. Deeply in love with his wife, Vimal gives in to her plea to seek help through reproductive technology. The treatments tax the couple physically and emotionally, straining their relations. While Vimal grapples with his business challenges, Mayuri plods along, restless, depressed, painfully aware of her growing age and convinced she cannot be content unless she has a child. In her desperation, she turns to religion and even hurtles to the edge of infidelity. What makes a couple’s life complete? Are children the indispensable glue binding a family? And does motherhood and fatherhood have to be biological?

The talented and passionate Urmila Karmarkar has recently married into a wealthy, politically connected family in suburban Mumbai. When Urmila’s brother-in-law is compelled to move to Dubai, her husband leaves her behind and chooses to follow him instead. Fuelled by this rejection, Urmila seeks solace in her art as she battles to keep her dreams of love and motherhood alive, waiting for her husband to return.

Something happened here a very long time ago – an ancient tragedy – that ripples into present lives in unexpected ways. We meet Boman, a pedantic and lovelorn Parsi. Idris, a successful photographer whose happiness is about to be shattered. Ashwini, a famous actress who carries the secret regret of a lost love. Attempted murder, illegal money, infidelity, kidnapping, abuse, love and bereavement – all these and more find their paths entwined, as a holy man gathers together the threads of their lives and by so doing frees himself. By turns outrageous, amusing and poignant, Heaven’s Above offers an intimate and affectionate view of these everyday inhabitants of Mumbai.

Is this male domination? Kali stands on Shiva's chest. Is this female domination? Shiva is half a woman. Is this gender equality? Why then is Shakti never half a man? Taken literally, stories, symbols and rituals of Hindu mythology have much to say about gender relationships. Taken symbolically, they reveal many more things about humanity and nature. Which is the correct reading? The third title in the bestselling 'Hindu Trinity' series focuses on the Goddess, and respected mythologist Devdutt Pattanaik tries to unravel the secrets locked within her stories, symbols and rituals.

Last Poem) was published in 1929. The author draws an amusing picture of an ultra-modern Bengali intellectual whose Oxford education, while giving him a superiority complex, has induced in him a craze for conscious originality which results in a deliberate and frivolous contrariness to all accepted opinion and convention. His aggressive self-complacence, however, receives a shock when as the result of an accidental meeting he falls in love with and wins in return the heart of, a quite different product of modern culture - a highly educated girl of fine sensibility and deep feelings. This love being more or less genuine and different from his previous experience of coquetry, releases his own submerged depth of sincerity, which he finds hard to adjust to the habits of sophistry and pose, practiced so long. In the process he manages to strike a new romantic attitude. The struggle makes of him a curiously pathetic figure -one who is being worked against his grain. The tragedy is understood by the girl, who releases him from his troth and disappears from his life. The last poem which she addresses to her lover gives evidence of the depth of feeling of which she was capable.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            The present selection is an attempt to represent the wide range and variety of Mulk Raj Anand's short stories. The first group represents the stories of 'lyric awareness'. As in all poetry, the themes are elemental, such as birth and death, beauty, love and childhood and the treatment often reveals a symbolic dimension added to realistic presentation. The prevailing mood of the second group of stories in this selection is of the 'tears at the heart of things'. These stories are naturally allied to the brief tales of 'lyric awareness' but with a difference. Through his acute understanding of the complex social forces at work, Anand describes an India where tradition clashes with modernity. The range and variety of Anand's short stories are not only in mood, tone and spirit but also in locale, characters and form. The setting ranges from the Punjab (as in the Parrot in the Cage) to Uttar Pradesh (as in the Price of Bananas) and Kashmir (as in Kashmir Idyll). Both the village and the city get almost equal representation. Mulk Raj Anand's stories are a museum of human nature. Among the Indian writers of the short story in English, he has few peers.

Each separate story is embedded in a framework, which forms the story of the present. The present selection brings together the Jataka stories of the most widespread interest.

This is a story of people, hungry and semi starved, yet hopeful and optimistic in the truest spirit of the age it represent.

These stories were meant to impart worldly wisdom to the dull-witted sons of a king and have since travelled the world, awakening intelligence in readers across centuries. Arthur Ryder, a Professor of Sanskrit at the University of California, translated the Sanskrit original into English in 1925. This re-write of the Ryder translation is aimed at today's busy reader and the original interwoven stories are presented separately. Archaic English prose makes way for modern language. The "Principle" clearly and simply summarizes the wisdom imparted at the end of each story. Arthur Ryder's brilliant introduction and charming verse translations remain untouched. This book is a rare coming together of simple format, rich poetry, practical wisdom and lofty ideals, a vehicle to transmit the simple and timeless truths of the Panchatantra in a concise manner to a modern audience.

Though not necessarily representative of the authors' complete works, the stories have been carefully chosen to showcase their versatility and skill as storytellers. The collection covers an extraordinary range of themes, styles and settings, allowing the reader a glimpse of another world gone by. Yet, these stories seem timeless and the characters in them show the same foibles, fears and hopes as do people in the brave new world of the 21st century.

It tells the much beloved tale of the young bride Scheherazade, who spun enchanting stories to escape death at the hands of her husband, King Shahryar. Scheherazade would begin a new tale each evening but always withhold the ending; a thousand and one nights later, the king found his true love and her life was spared forever. Magical Tales of the Arabian Nights includes timeless favorites such as Aladdin, Sinbad the Sailor, Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, and even lesser known gems like the whimsical Story of the Three Sisters and the more intricate one of The Three Calendars. The mystical tales of this collection have long contributed to popular imagination, demonstrating that Scheherazades spell remains unbroken even to this day.

'Please. . .' I gasped. 'I've come from England to study!' 'Well, let this be your first lesson, English boy. . .' Eager to start a new phase in life, Rahul Saxena, 27, a half-Indian British citizen, recently out of job and rejected in love, lands in Mumbai from London to study filmmaking. But little does he know that Mumbai, the city of dreams, will turn his life inside out. From the dark corners of the streets as a professional rat killer to the vermin-infested confines of a jail, from shady dance clubs to the homes of Mumbai's rich women where he is paid to provide pleasure-fate takes him on a roller-coaster ride that challenges his very will and determination to survive. When his secret life threatens to destroy even the love that he finds, Rahul seeks recourse in spirituality. Inspired by India's synergetic religious traditions, Rahul fights back internal and external demons to write his own destiny.
