  • Thank You Idi Amin (Paperback)
    Mohezin Tejani
    395

    Item Code: #KGP-324

    Availability: In stock

    Through adversity, a new life emerges
    Bouncing back from one of the horrific episodes of world history—Idi Amin’s expulsion of 80,000 Asians from Uganda— Mohezin Tejani presents a collection of true stories about being a global Muslim refugee.
    Liberated from the confines of his own culture by political realities, Tejani sets out to learn how to be rooted in the absence of a place to call home. His writing is a hypnotic bhangra dance through time and space where he deftly explores both geographical and psychological displacement. Yet it is precisely through such disorientation and a host of intercultural encounters that he eventually finds solace in being a ‘global village on two legs.’
    Thank You, Idi Amin portrays the intersecting points of congruence among humans that are neither from the East nor the West, nor the North or South, but are all part of a global compass navigating the new world of tomorrow.

    It is one of the three goals of Hindu life. It is what the west called ‘erotica’. It is the one we consider sacred. It is Kama. And this is its manual—The Kama Sutra.
    A compilation of seven books, starting with the description of general principles of mortal life that Brahma laid down when he created men and women—dharma (fulfillment of duty), artha (accumulation of wealth), and kama (pleasurable experience of the five senses, to moving forward about the ‘right’ way of life where it talks about many issues including the behaviour and actions during copulation between a man and a woman. A 4th century guide to a virtuous and gracious living, still valid in the 21 century and beyond.    
    Vatsyayana unbashingly talks scientifically and spiritually about what is a taboo today, and emphasises that this book is a must for both men and women. It lays more stress on the fact that women, especially, should be knowledgeable in the arts complimentary to Kama Sutra
    The physical beauty of Khajuraho is the manifestation of the beauty trapped in this book, which the west unknowingly calls the ‘manual of sex’. 
    Discover the knowledge of the gods translated for the mortals by the mortals.

    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.

    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.

    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.

Petterson also skillfully invokes higher levels of deeper thought in the reader, chiefly by inviting them to consider the deeper spiritual ramifications of the issues with which his characters are forced to contend—issues that rest at the core of our collective existence.

    To find Dr. Ross’s killer, the agents want the expat to assume the identity of his dead friend at an auction of rare books soon to be held at a faraway palace in India.

He’s in far more danger than he anticipated when he learns his fellow guests at the palace are consumed with being the first to acquire the Text of Akbar . . . and one of them will gladly kill for that chance.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    “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?

    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.

    What a time for a transfer!
    He had not collected even a tenth of the money he had invested in getting this posting, not to talk of saving anything. And so, Kamalakant Varma, who is called Bara Sahib in the office, was downcast, and was in the process of discussing with his specially chosen juniors and subordinates, behind closed doors, the transfer order which a messenger from the Head Office had handed to him just now.
    In this state, transfer orders in the bureaucracy were on auction anyway: there could be a change in the order several times in course of a day!
    Like other government offices, in this one too, whether work was done or not, politicking was quite rampant. Thousands of years ago, Kautilya had defined the relationship between politics and spying, and this office here believed in it too, with full faith. Unlike the state intelligence agencies, secret information here were not produced from newspaper clippings, but were rather obtained with great labour, and therefore had often some worth in them.

    Reiki is an ancient Japanese energy-healing system of remarkable ease and efficacy that heals at the very causal level. 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.

    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 shake-up and change are caused by The likes of These meteors:
    • ‘India that is Bharat…..’ – Why two names?
    • Get rid of the scientifically rejected superstitions.
    • No more Ramans, Boses, Sahas – Why?
    • Ignoring higher education–Why?
    • Science is significant, develop its temper.
    • Come out of the population trap.
    • Don’t litter, clean up your surroundings, it’s easy.
