"The philosophical significance of Jainism extends far beyond its statistical presence in India and the world, for it lies in the unique quality of its thought. This book is an attempt to take its insights into account for the light they shed on issues customarily debated in the Philosophy of Religion as it has evolved in the West.
It is in line with other works of the author of a similar nature: A Hindu Perspective on the Philosophy of Religion (1990); The Philosophy of Religion: A Buddhist Perspective (1995) and The Philosophy of Religion and(less)

"This book was first published in Urdu in 1963. It was written at a time when Islamic fundamentalism was being aggressively propagated among the Indian Muslims.
The author counters the time space independent and eternal vision of bookish Islam with historical perspective, in which Islam emerged and spread, to explain the reasons why Islam turned into a hurricane of change and why today it is not so. It is underlined by(less)

Subject Index. "Gandhi's struggle for the Indian independence will ever remain in the mind of all generations but no less significant was his fight for social equality of the untouchables.
He himself had suffered its pain as he was excommunicated by his caste on his return from England. For Gandhi, untouchability was that vicious aspect of Hinduism that must be eradicated.
He had his own interpretation of Hinduism and called himself a "Sanatani Hindu" who believed in the equality of all castes and religions. An attempt has been made in this book to interpret Gandhi's "Hinduism" in terms(less)
It discusses material from classical Hindu texts relating to the themes of the divine realm such a brahman, devi, ishvara, trimurti, and so on, as well as of the mundane realm, such as jiva, samsara, karma, dharma, and so on. It also covers the concepts which link the two realms, such as those of maya, and the overcoming of it through yoga, to attain moksha.
Some selections also throw light on what classical Hinduism has to say about the human being as a social being, through such concepts as varna, ashrama, and the purusharthas(less)
" Chopra takes us on a series of events affecting the Chopra households, including a hilarious cross-country plane trip with an untranquilized dog, an expensive trip to Italy, and the events surrounding an elderly relative's grave illness. Along the way, we learn the valuable lessons that man's best friend can teach us: "dogs-like the universe-don't hold grudges.
They forgive and evolve." The younger Chopra even relates an incident in which his dog was a better judge of character than he was.
The one sour note is a lengthy detour on Michael Jackson, whose death occurs while Gotham is on a bike trip in Italy, contributing little to the book(less)

Index. "Biotechnology is the culmination of more than 8,000 years of human experience using live organisms and the process of fermentation to make useful products.
It can be viewed as a group of useful, enabling technologies with wide and diverse applications in the industry, commerce and environment. Historically, biotechnology evolved as an artisanal skill rather than a science, exemplified in the manufacture of beers, wines, cheese etc.
Today biotechnology is applied to manufacturing processes used in health care, food and agriculture, industrial processes and environmental cleanup, among other applications. This book offers a comprehensive description of the applications(less)
