Akula's transformation from activist to entrepreneur to corporate executive parallels that of each SKS Microfinance member from pauper to customer to business woman. In creating a high-performance enterprise of true professionals, Vikram has done what other microfinancing models have failed to do, which is to achieve the scale, the scope, and the profitability necessary to sustain its efforts without ongoing fundraising.
It is a remarkable entrepreneurial journey, populated by a colorful cast of characters including India`s political star, Rahul Gandhi. A FISTFUL OF RICE, the lively and sharply told narrative of Vikram's entrepreneurial journey.

"This book provides a fascinating study of Hindustani music in its sociological perspective. It is a wonderful study for depicting the social interaction that takes place in Guru-Shishya parampara handing down the tradition of music and strictly preserving a style through pedagogy.
The book also explains the social status and organisation of the musician-community and a psycho-social analysis of the journey of a musician from an individual being to a social being. The author has carefully traced the history of Hindustani music in its socio-political perspective.
She has amply proved what an interdisciplinary study can achieve for a great art like Hindustani music. It is a treat to(less)

And this makes the situation extremely ticklish. Even an inadvertent omission of one or two names here and there will send wrong signals leading people to think that it might have been deliberate! Hence, in the dictionary segment we have avoided allotting individual entries to all composers both past and present, except six.
They are; the trinity for the very special and unmatched place they hold, Swati Thirunal for being the most popular multi-lingual composer, Purandaradasa for being the creator of Abhyasa Gana (Music lessons) and Gopalakrishna Bharati for being the trendsetter by introducing Tamizh compositions. Of course, other composers' names have been mentioned wherever it is relevant in that context.

Index. "Hindustani music has become one of the most sought-after musical systems of the world.
The interest exhibited for this music is continuously on the rise. With its basic foundation on devotion and Indian philosophy, it clearly exhibits a superb quality of tranquility and meditation.
This quality alone has fascinated the music connoisseurs of the world. As a Hindustani vocal musician and instructor, I was afforded the privilege of performing and teaching this music to a vast audience in India, Canada and the USA over the last three decades.
I found most of the students and listeners, especially outside India, to be quite curious and interested in this music. Their genuine inquisitive nature and somewhat(less)

"All rich, durable and varied cultural traditions thrive because of their presence in multiple contexts. Hindustani music is no exception.
Arts, culture and life have shaped the multi-faceted personality of Indian music. Through this mechanism the performing and scholastic streams of Hindustani music have evolved to crystallize the totality of inherited and practiced musical knowledge.
The resulting musico-cultural profile is both rich and complex! Therefore the author thought it useful to combine two approaches of presenting source material, namely, the thesaurus and dictionary approaches. While the thesaurus approach seeks to provide larger contexts, the dictionary format supplies factual information and meanings.
Together, the approaches make it easier to appreciate the larger map of Indian music. Through three hundred entries grouped in three main sections and six subsections, the author deals with etymological, historical, musicological and cultural aspects of Hindustani music.
The reader can quickly find out enough about each musical style to appreciate its subtleties, and is also directed to the best available CDs for further listening. Unlike the massive Rough Guides or MusicHound volumes, this book is designed to be concise and easily digested, covering the essentials on each style, rather than encyclopedically listing every possible recording.
It is a perfect introduction for the student, scholar, or general listener(less)

For western music, there are such standard works as Grove’s Dictionary of Music and Musicians, The Oxford Companion to Music, the Macmillan Encyclopaedia of Music and Musicians and Riemann’s Lexicon. No such ambitious work has so far been attempted for Indian music either in English or in the Indian languages.
The author is glad that the publication of volume I of this Dictionary of South Indian Music and Musicians, synchronises with the completion of twenty-five years of his career as an author of music books. The other three volumes of this Dictionary of South Indian Music and Musicians will be published shortly.

Index. "With its roots in the Samaveda (which treats it as a "divine art"), music in India has a long, splendid tradition.
Over the centuries, it has absorbed fresh influences and experimented with new forms to finally evolve into two meticulously codified classical systems: Hindustani and Carnatic. In today’s growing library of writings on Hindustani music, Anjali Mittal’s research is yet another valuable addition adopting, as it does, a viewpoint which has been neglected so far, namely, the viewpoint of contemporary western aesthetics.
It is for the first time that this monograph examines the concept of form in Hindustani classical music. In this context, analytic attention has been focussed on some select compositions in dhrupada, dhamar,(less)

The author wishes to analyze the extent and scope for Abhinaya leading to dramatic potentials, as available in most of the Kritis of eminent composers of Carnatic music. Both Carnatic music and dance have prominent place in the cultural and fine arts set up.
This has not only swayed the hearts of the ethnic Indian community but also the hearts of the universe breaking all barriers. Together they have a great role in the cultural diplomacy to make the world a better and befitting place to live.
