    KHUSHWANT SINGH, India's iconic journalist and writer, whose works secured largest readership in the country, remains an enigma beyond his writings. His immense popularity and connectivity with his readers made him the common man's idol but his real persona remained in wraps. The 'dirty old man' ensconced in a bulb with a wicked grin and a fountain pen in hand was a far cry in real life.
    This collection of interviews and articles attempts to bring to light the real Khushwant as his family and close friends knew him. 
    A man who was constantly surrounded by beautiful women but remained faithfully wedded to his wife Kaval for 62 years  till she passed away, a man who wrote about wine, women and sex, but lived a life more simple and austere than a commoner, a man who was more disciplined in his fitness regime than men even half his age, a person  who wrote more books, articles and columns than any other journalist or writer in this country, and in a language, so simple that the common reader could comprehend. 
    Little do his readers know that the man famous for his jokes, his love for wine and women and his fierce agnosticism, was a great scholar in real life who wrote classics like A History of the Sikhs, taught comparative religion at Princeton University, was a passionate nature lover who wrote books like Nature Watch, was an art critic and had dabbled in sitar and painting at Shantiniketan in his youth.
    Khushwant Singh voiced his opinions openly and spoke his mind fearlessly through his column's for which he was honoured in 1998, with 'Honest Man of the Year Award and later in 2007 with Padma Vibhushan award.
    He remained reticent about his personal life while he lived. It is about time his loyal fans knew who the real Khushwant was.

    Availability: In stock

    A face we see all around us… everyday, even if we do not visit government offices. Teachings people swear by and entertained to in films. We still see his style being imitated in the political circles—that is Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. One of the influencers of the millennium, the ‘half naked’ Indian man who shook the mightiest empire of the modern world, has a story to tell—his story. 
    An autobiography of Gandhi, the book starts with his birth, and ends with his experiences till 1921. The original manuscript was written in weekly installments in Gujarati by Gandhi, and was published weekly in his journal Navjivan from 1925 to 1929. It was later translated by Mahadev Desai in English, which too was published in installments in his other journal Young India.
    Unlike most autobiographies or biographies, Gandhi’s autobiography speaks about his fears, regrets, failures, struggles, and all that went through his mind while initiating and going through the experiments he conducted, in his and his immediate family’s lives. Gandhi hides nothing from his readers; he wants his experiences and experiments to reach out to people so that their life becomes worth living.
    Gandhi, through his lucid and simple style of writing, honest opinions, and candid narrations, takes us to the man who was ‘mahatma’ in his thoughts and actions.

    “Chaaron Jug Parataapa Tumhaaraa, Hai Parasidha Jagata Ujiyaaraa.”
    “Your glory is sung far and wide, and in all four ages; and, your radiance known to illumine the whole universe.”
    Shree Hanuman Chalisa (The Forty Verses of Hanuman) written towards the end of Tulasidas’s life is, perhaps, one of his last works. By this work, the great poet-cum- saint takes the reader back to a time where Truth is still pure, undiluted, free, and its movements not restricted by human logic and facts of the physical world.
    Shree Hanuman Chalisa brings us closer to the mysteries and myths of life. It is the acceptance of life as it is. Here, doubts are no longer entertained. There is no attempt to demystify life, for the mysterious can never ever be demystified.
    In this life-changing book, Lord Hanuman is extolled as the most successful spiritual Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of all times. One may ask, what is so mysterious about that? There is no dearth of successful CEOs in the world. And, spiritual beings are not scarce either. So, what is so special about Hanuman?

    Nick Carraway, the narrator of the novel, takes us back to the spring in 1922, when Wall Street was booming, and bootleggers were in business due to the alcohol ban. Nick travels to New York from the mid-west in order to become a bondsman. He takes residence in West Egg, next to a huge mansion which belongs to a mysterious Mr. Gatsby.  Nick is reacquainted with Daisy and Tom Buchanan, a wealthy couple who lives across the bay from him. Nick befriends Gatsby, who is revealed to be infatuated with Daisy. Nick arranges for them to meet, and they began to have an affair.  Tom, who is also having an affair with a married woman, confronts Daisy and Tom, and Daisy is forced to return to Tom. As Daisy and Gatsby drive off afterwards, they run over and kill Myrtle Wilson, Tom's mistress. Tom lies to Myrtle's husband, and tells him that Gatsby was the driver, when in reality, Daisy was driving. Wilson shoots Gatsby at his home afterwards, and then commits suicide. Nick is disillusioned with the life he planned for in New York, and returns west to his home town.
    Nick reflects that just as Gatsby's dream of Daisy was corrupted by money and dishonesty, the American dream of happiness and individualism has disintegrated into the mere pursuit of wealth. Though Gatsby's power to transform his dreams into reality is what makes him “great,” Nick reflects that the era of dreaming—both Gatsby's dream and the American dream—is over.

    The contents of this volume are essentially an attempt to catch up with the stakeholders in education, study and analyze their perceptions and the manner these are articulated. These are primarily based on observations, interactions and analysis that emerged from the lecture tours, discussions with experts, teachers, parents and informed citizens. There is a general impression that even when major educational reforms are planned and announced, there is little motivation in the system ensures that these are effectively implemented in the right spirit. It would be seen that the major national concerns in education centre on quality improvement, skill orientation, and value development and nurturance. Everyone expects an environment in school that would be attractive to the learner and let him interact with his 'role models'. It would be a place where every teacher realizes that he is being watched and observed by the innocent young ones who imitate him and treat him as an icon!
    The education system must create learning conditions that lead to the internalization of the democratic values enshrined in the Constitution of India. The process of teaching and learning must consistently strive to inculcate the eternal and universally accepted values of Truth, Peace, Nonviolence, Dharma (Righteous Conduct) and Love. This is necessary to sustain social cohesion and religious amity in the country. Education alone has the unique strength to promote the desire to live together which is critical to the unity and identity of India. Citizenship education must begin at the right stage and can continue all along during education as it would become an asset in the working life. India would enhance its cognitive capital manifold if all of its children get good quality school education of comparable and acceptable quality. It would lead to improvement in the quality of research and innovations which at present is an area of considerable concern.

    Malviyana is a worshipful homage to the father—angel and architect of the pilgrims of knowledge to the temple—shrine called Banaras Hindu University. Banaras, because it is a Kashi of culture; Hindu, because it flows like the Mother Ganges of cosmopolitanism; and University, because it is a universal city of congregating diversity.
    Homage to Radhakrishnan is homage to the majesty and stature of lndia’s philosopher king, to the teacher and liaison luminary of the East and the West, to one whose voice reverberated across the seas as the voice of India with the ageless wisdom of its sages and seers. It is a homage in soul’s indebtedness to all gurus through a sublime symbol of him.
    Compliments to Kalam should be read as the heart's low bow to the ace patriot and Mother India’s ideal son today. It is homage to eyes lit with a vision of India’s march ahead and glory tomorrow, to a sense of belongingness above all barriers and cramping cabin of spirit, and finally to one for whom knowledge is a ceaseless quest, dynamic as life itself and inspired like love that embraces all.
    My prostrations to each as the symbol and synonym of the son of modern India.
    Please listen with compassionate affection to the lispings of this child. Bless him where he is child-like. Forgive him where he is childish.

    Benaras – A city so beautiful, even the Ganges changed course and flowed north to be able to swing by it. Lord Shiva located this beautiful city on the tips of his trident, and came here to live the life of a householder with his wife. He is in the very spirit and very soul of the city. With Moksha promised to those that die here, Benarasis, it is said, want to make the most of their last life on earth. Eat, drink and be merry, for never again shall you live. Amazingly, in this day and age, a lot of those ‘eats’ and ‘drinks’ have still not travelled out of the city. With unique flavours, a distinct gharana of classical music, deep-rooted traditions of dance, a spectacular riverfront, a world-renowned seat of learning, a tolerant social fabric as rich as the luxurious saree, and the fabled Benarasi banter, life in Benaras is not the same as everywhere else.
    What is it like to live here? With local insight, Roli Jindal takes you beyond the tourist guides deep inside the heart of Benaras and shows you how this bustling, crowded city retains its spiritual core and its unique culture, while staying perfectly in sync with modern times. This is a personal, insider view of what life is like in this very interesting city.

    An excerpt...
    My dreams had always been extravagant and seemingly more enjoyable to me than my real life. The strange world of 
    imaginations where I rescued the POWs from Somalia to making love to the 
    Hollywood babes was like a daily chore. 
    I would often reach the climax on a high note and would wake up with my heart pounding and sinking like the low-high tides of the moving ridges of the sea.
    My dreams were the answers to my real life questions. I was more than me, a kind of superhero, the Robin Hood alike in my dreams. Like the Iraqi shoe-throw journalist Muntader al-zaidi who was renowned for his dare devil act on Bush, I would somehow find ways while stargazing to flutter woman’s heart or make political revolutions worthy of being termed and credited for cultural turnarounds too. 
    Maybe I always dreamt in lieu of waking up as someone else. Maybe I wanted to be somebody that I wasn’t already now. 
    I loved my dreams more than I loved myself.

    Like an artist who expresses herself on canvas with colors, our thoughts do so on the canvas of life (health included). Health or diseases, therefore, do not come by chance; they are created through our mental processes—though unknowingly.
    As per Psychoneuroimmunology, a new branch of science that studies the mind-body connection, the thoughts and emotions that we choose get instantly transformed into chemicals. These chemicals are, effectively, either self- administered injections of ‘slow poisons’ or of ‘healing medicines’ that eventually freeze into and become our physical states, i.e. the way we feel physically in our bodies—dis-eased or eased (i.e., healthy).
    Reverse Your Thoughts, Reverse Your Diseases is your guide to retrace your path back towards health from diseases through the same route whence these came from, i.e. through the route of your thoughts, emotions, beliefs and imagination. The book shares with you symptoms, emotional causes, metaphysical reasons, affirmations and dietary suggestions for averting and curing over 150 diseases . . . along with power-packed strategies for liberating you from corrosive thoughts and emotions.

    A first ever Novel on an Untouched Subject
    The Tantra, its cults and practices have always attracted attention worldwide due to its strange disciplines and various hidden secrets. Chiefly because of its use of esoteric practices— in acquiring siddhis (supernatural powers), spiritual perfection and other material gains—Tantra came to be regarded as anti-social and unethical, forcing it to go underground.
    The present novel explores an unusual aspect of the tantric discipline, which makes it quite interesting. The author has taken up a subject inherent to the sub-culture of the Himalayan regions to which he belongs, and tried to weave it into a quite probable story, realistic as well as readable.
    ‘Tiger Tantra’ or the Tantra which changes the practitioner into a tiger or Bokshu and makes him immortal, lies buried under the ruins of a temple in the village of Jaled, the centre of an isolated Tantric Peeth in the Himalayan region.
    A scholar in search of the Tiger Tantra visits the village, to uncover the secret and to find the hidden mantra, finds a swami engaged in some strange practices . . . and the story unfolds in its fantastic dimensions . . . till the virgin offers herself to the scholar to corrupt the swami’s sadhana.

    Despite the growing presence of multinationals and the ongoing emphasis on work-culture in the corporate world, if the first preference of the Indian middle classes continues to be government service even today, it is largely related to the pleasures of irresponsibility, idleness, graft, bribery and other forms of corruption. So in the last six decades since independence, government service has turned into a synonym of all the above vices. This is how transfers and postings among the services have become an ‘industry’ which is thriving and flourishing among us more than many others, from government offices to the bungalows of politicians in power.
    The finer details of this ‘industry’, which only an insider can access, are presented to us by this novel with a satire so trenchant and powerful that we begin to look at our bureaucracy during recent years with something close to despair. A delightful reading as it offers, the reader is compelled to begin asking whither we as a nation are headed.

    While Leo Tolstoy was called the ‘greatest writer of Russia’ by Turgenev, and ‘second Shakespeare’ by Flaubert, Mikhail Saltykov, wrote under the pseudonym ‘Shchedrin’ and achieved the great success and popularity. 
    Aleksandr Kuprin was called the Russian Kipling by Vladimir Nabokov for his stories about pathetic adventure-seekers, and Ivan Turgenev’s A Sportsman's Sketches was a milestone of Russian Realism.
    While Fyodor Sologub gave us the namesake of a favourite snack today—Hide and Seek, Anton Pavlovich Chekhov’s famous line is still quote-worthy: “Medicine is my lawful wife and literature is my mistress.”

    Only he whose hands are steady on the steering wheel of his mind and body and is in full control of his desires, can carry the wisdom's mark on his forehead. To such an enlightened mind, the darkness of the night glows like a sunlit day, dark ignorance yielding to bright knowledge. Nothing can hoodwink his all-perceiving eyes. A genuine saint is such a man blessed by the Gods.
    Like the deep sea, he absorbs an insurgent flood but does not let its shore-line be deflected. It welcomes rivers from all directions but is not overwhelmed by them—its underworld remains undisturbed because its centre can always hold.
    So, O blessed Prince, throw away the yoke of your impulses, their oppressive burden, regaining your suzerainty over them. Disengage yourself from man's prime infirmities—his ego and passion.
    This, O Prince, is the only way to merge into God, the individual soul's union with the Oversoul. Once you are up there on the heights, you will never slide down to the dark valley below. It will then be the same for you—living or dying, waking or dreaming, gaining or losing.
    This is what the sages call Moksha—release from the bondage of birth and death—basking forever in the sunshine of Life Divine, of peace eternal.

The Reiki energy can be felt by the sender and receiver both, and when photographed by scientists through Kirlian photography it appears to be a laser-like beam emanating from the practitioner’s hands.
    Working from the idea that all human problems and diseases result from the illusion of separateness, Reiki re-establishes our lost connection with ourselves and the oneness that surrounds us in a multiplicity of forms. Reiki can be used to heal yourself and others. When practiced regularly, Reiki begins to bring an all round change in life’s quality and does not leave any aspect of life untouched with its blessings.
    The uses and applications of Reiki are limited only by our own imagination, which is why it is being acquired and practiced by doctors, engineers, healing practitioners, masseurs, physical therapists, psychologists, students, house wives, executives, corporate leaders, people who are interested in personal growth and by people who are simply curious.

Regular reading of the Gita promotes positive thinking (be good to all loZHkwr fgrs jrk) rejects negativity (v}s"Vk loZ Hkwrkuke~), promote devi sampada and reject asuri sampada. The Gita guides us to promote collaborative activities (ijLija Hkko;Ur) and work for the social good (yksd laxzg). above all it helps us to improve and uplift ourlselves by our own efforts (m¼jsr vkReuk vkRekue~) and develop manly quality (ikSj"ka u`"kq).

    Imagine reading a 20-page introduction about an author and their times before we even start reading a story. Wait… do not imagine… just pick up any classic available, and the imagination will transform into reality. In all possibility, we 'reject' these classics outright but our grandparents still swear by their narrations and their plots. They say a good story can never be put down… what happened to these? Younger generation, wrong choices—is it?
    A good story lives and touches our hearts but only in the form the author wrote it, and not with editorial notes. What is an enjoyable tale today is a classic tomorrow. Over generations, each piece of literary classic has received newer interpretations, perceptions and proportions.

    Keeping this thought in mind, each classic in this collection comes to the reader just as the original piece; meaning, neither the publisher nor the editor have tampered with the authors' original writings. Each classic stands untouched and unabridged—just like it was years back, fresh from the author, fresh from the press!
