Reset: Regaining Indias Economic Legacy
Author - Subramanian Swamy, Type - Hardcover, Language - English, About The Book - In 1970, at the request of a few Jan Sangh leaders including Nanaji Deshmukh and Jagannathrao Joshi, Subramanian Swamy prepared and presented a Swadeshi Plan. The monograph vociferously demanded that socialism be sacrificed for a competitive market economic system, so India can grow at 10 percent per year, achieve self-reliance, full employment, and produce nuclear weaponry. The then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi denounced the plan as dangerous. Fifty years later, Swamy redefines his path-breaking ideas on India-specific economic development in his seminal work, Reset. It undertakes a nuanced analysis of how the highly prosperous Indian economy witnessed a long, accelerated decline due to persistent British imperialist aggression, and compares the distinctive manner in which Asian giants India and China suffered at the hands of imperialism. He critically analyses the highs and lows of the Nehruvian model of centralized economic planning borrowed from the Soviet Union, and the debilitating circumstances that impelled him, as Commerce Minister in Prime Minister Chandra Shekhars government, to draw up a blueprint for economic reforms.

Backstage: The Story Behind Indias High Growth Years
Author - Montek Singh Ahluwalia, Type - Hardcover, Language - English, About The Book - Tracing the spectacular trajectory of Ahluwalias life from its humble beginnings in Secunderabad to the corridors of power in New Delhi, this book is a classic insiders account of how the India story was shaped and scripted. Ahluwalia played a key role in the transformation of India from a state-run to a market-based economy and remained a constant fixture at the top of Indias economic policy establishment for an unprecedented period of three decades. The book traverses the politics, personalities, events, and crises in Indias recent history. It goes behind the numbers to bring alive the politics of reform and how policy change was pushed through at first, slowly, under Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, and then much more boldly in 1991 when the opportunity provided by a severe balance of payments crisis was seized for wide-ranging reform. Ahluwalia, who served as commerce secretary and finance secretary during this crucial period, makes a convincing case for why, contrary to the accusations at the time, the reforms that formed part of the conditionality of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) program in 1991, were home-grown and not thrust upon a reluctant India by the IMF. Ahluwalia discusses the successes and failures of the UPA regime during which period he served as deputy chairman of the Planning Commission, a Cabinet-level position. He presents the story behind Indias spectacular economic growth in the first half of the UPAs tenure as well as its historic achievements in poverty alleviation. He also candidly discusses the policy paralysis and allegations of corruption that came to mark the last few years of UPA 2. Narrated with wit, humor and remarkable intellect, Backstage is a definitive contribution to Indias economic and political history by one uniquely positioned to write it.

Indias Lost Frontiers
Author - Raghvendra Singh, Type - Paperback, Language - English, About The Book - The northwest Frontier Province (NWFP), now Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa, has always remained tactically important. In the years leading up to Indias Partition and Independence, it significantly engaged the attention of British and Indian political figures. This province negated Jinnahs two-nation theory, for the NWFP was overwhelmingly Muslim and yet elected a Congress government in 1946. This upset calculations, primarily of the British. It became imperative to snatch the province away from Congress. A referendum was ordered and the elected Congress government dismissed on 22 August 1947, within a week of Indias Partition. The Congress leadership had allowed NWFP to be lost to India. Only Mahatma Gandhi and the Khan brothers Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan and Dr. Khan Saheb had resisted surrendering this claim over NWFP. It was in Britains strategic interest to partition India. It was also in Britains interest that NWFP and Baluchistan, the two frontier provinces of undivided India, join Pakistan. Why then, even after more than seven decades of Indias Independence, do we still question the inevitability of Partition In this exhaustive study of the NWFP and its adjoining area of Afghanistan, Raghvendra Singh argues that with an increasingly powerful China knocking on Indias door, it is imperative to recognize that the docile acceptance of NWFPs loss in 1947 may have serious consequences for Indias security in times to come.
Indian Nationalism: The Essential Writings
Author - Edited By S. Irfan Habib, Type - Paperback, Language - English, About The Book - How do we define nationalism Who is a good nationalist Do you become anti-national if you criticize the government These are questions that overwhelm most debates today, but these discussions are not new. And while the loudest voices would have us believe that Indian nationalism is (and has always been) a narrow, parochial, xenophobic one, our finest political leaders, thinkers, scientists, and writers have been debating the concept since the early nineteenth century and come to a different conclusion. Nationalism as we understand it today first came into being more than a hundred years ago. Studied by historians, political scientists, and sociologists for its role in world history, it remains one of the strongest driving forces in politics and also the most malleable one. A double-edged sword, it can be a binding force or a deeply divisive instrument used to cause strife around political, cultural, linguistic or, more importantly, religious identities. In this anthology, historian S. Irfan Habib traces the growth and development of nationalism in India from the late nineteenth century through its various stages: liberal, religion-centric, revolutionary, cosmopolitan, syncretic, eclectic, right libera The views of our most important thinkers and leaders Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, C. Rajajgopalachari, Bhagat Singh, Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Sarojini Naidu, B. R. Ambedkar, Rabindranath Tagore, M. N. Roy, Maulana Azad, Jayaprakash Narayan, and others remind us what nationalism should mean and the kind of inclusive, free and humanistic nation that we should continue to build.

With a childlike eagerness in his eyes, he too was looking at the digital counter. As soon as the counter hit the target, the whole office erupted in euphoria. It reached 8.8 crore members, surpassing the Communist Party of China. The ambitious membership drive was Shahs idea. The next day every leading newspaper reported it bold and clear BJP becomes the largest political party in the world.

Several Political Regimes And Political Leaders Have Little Time And Respect For Liberal Values But It Is Important To Understand That In Many Cases They Have Been Empowered By Popular Social Attitudes That Have Turned Against Liberalism. In Order To Understand This Phenomenon, Rudrangshu Mukherjee Goes Back To The Origins Of Liberalism To Understand Its Substantive Ideas And Lineage. He Shows How Liberalism, A Western Doctrine, Flourished When Western Empires Dominated Much Of The World. Ironically, While Values Like Freedom, Democracy And Citizenship Were Nurtured In The West, They Were Denied To The People Of The Countries That Had Been Colonized By Western Nations. Liberalism In The West Thrived By Being Illiberal Elsewhere. The Contradictions Within Made Liberalism Vulnerable To Attack. Totalitarian Regimes Swept It Aside And Other Doctrines Replaced It With Increasing Frequency. In The Twenty-First Century, In Both The East As Well As The West, Liberalism Appears To Be Fast Disappearing. This Important Book Tells Us Why.

Business Sutra: A Very Indian Approach To Management
Author - Devdutt Pattanaik, Type - Paperback, Language - English, About The Book - Business Sutra: A Very Indian Approach to Management is a radical, nuanced approach to management, business, and leadership in a progressively polarized world. In this landmark book, bestselling author, leadership coach and mythologist Devdutt Pattanaik shows how, despite its veneer of objectivity, modern management is rooted in Western beliefs and obsessed with accomplishing rigid objectives and increasing shareholder value. By contrast, the Indian way of doing business, as apparent in Indian mythology but no longer seen in practice accommodates subjectivity and diversity and offers an inclusive, more empathetic way of achieving success. Great value is placed on darshan, that is, on how we see the world and our relationship with Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth. Business Sutra uses stories, symbols, and rituals drawn from Hindu, Jain, and Buddhist mythology to understand a wide variety of business situations that range from running a successful tea stall to nurturing talent in a large multinational corporation. At the heart of the book is a compelling premise: if we believe that wealth needs to be chased, the workplace becomes a Rana-Bhoomi - a battleground of investors, regulators, employers, employees, vendors, competitors and customers, if we believe that wealth needs to be attracted, the workplace becomes a ranga-Bhoomi - a playground where everyone is happy.Book Features: By Devdutt Pattanaik, the author of more than a dozen bestselling books on mythology and management, a leading columnist for business newspapers and one of the countrys foremost motivational speakers The book takes a practical and distinctive look at management and business practices, using stories, symbols, and rituals from Hindu, Jain, and Buddhist mythologies Devdutt Pattanaik hosted a widely popular TV show Business Sutra on CNBC. His TED talk on mythology and management received over 8, 10,000 hits online Business Sutra carries creative and informative illustrations by the author that elaborate the concepts being discussed Plenty of insightful anecdotes and examples of people from all walks of life that readers can relate to Booklets with excerpts, business cards, posters and an extensive tour by the author to top management institutes, business schools and leading corporations as part of the marketing plan to promote the book

Bharat is in chaos. While the kingdoms fight each other, Alexanders forces gather for the assault, their leader lured by tales of supernatural weapons and the elixir of immortality. Only one man can save the subcontinent from domination by the Greeks: the young Chandragupta Maurya, trained under the aegis of the dark Brahmin, Chanakya. When an ancient seal is found, sharing the secrets of the brahmastra, the redoubtable weapon of the Mahabharat, it is up to Rudra, young commander of the Mauryan Nava Yuva Sena and lifelong friend and confidante of Chandragupta, to decode it.

How To Become Rich: 12 Lessons I Learnt From Vedic And Puranic Stories
Lakshmi is worshipped as the goddess of wealth. Her arrival is considered auspicious, while her departure is bad and inauspicious. In temples, gods are bedecked with jewels; during festivals, our houses are decorated with flowers, lamps and Lakshmis footprints. Clearly, she is a much-desired goddess. Yet, some friends and relatives, even gurus, tell us not to be money-minded, or that it is wrong to equate Lakshmi with money because Lakshmi is spiritual and money is material. Why this mockery of money? Why are we driving Lakshmi out of India instead of inviting her lovingly into our lives? How to Become Rich is a simple retelling of the stories of Lakshmi found in the Vedas and Puranas.
