The millenia-old texts and interpretations of Hindu, Buddhist, Jain, Muslim, agnostic, and atheistic Indian thought demonstrate, Sen reminds us, ancient and well-respected rules for conducting debates and disputations, and for appreciating not only the richness of India's diversity but its need for toleration. Though Westerners have often perceived India as a place of endless spirituality and unreasoning mysticism, he underlines its long tradition of skepticism and reasoning, not to mention its secular contributions to mathematics, astronomy, linguistics, medicine, and political economy(less)

Algal species index. "The mangrove ecosystem in Indian Sundarbans has great role in the estuarine fish production and sustenance of large number of aquatic, amphibious and terrestrial forms of living organisms; this is because an ideal mangrove habitat releases more than 6,000 tons litter (on dry weight basis per hectare per annum) and this huge volume of organic matter after mineralisation or after complete decomposition releases nutrients to the estuarine, in shore and off shore water and the soil phases, as well.
As such, the soil and water in the estuaries and delta regions dominated with dense mangrove vegetation are considered as one of the most nutrient rich and productive areas(less)

Yet there are only a few books which provide an unbiased and authentic view of this world. One reason for this is that the study of Indian science through the ages involves the complex integration of the knowledge of many languages and diverse scientific disciplines.
Through the years, there has been growing interest in this study as an important aspect in understanding man's interaction with nature, his material life and cultural patterns. The Indian National Science Academy, through its History of Science Board (1958) and the National Commission for the Compilation of History of Sciences in India (1967) renamed in 1989 as the Indian National Commission for History of Science sought further means to stimulate this interest among(less)

The Indian economy is already the fourth largest in terms of purchasing power parity. It is in the top ten overall GNP.
Yet at least 200 million Indians remain desperately poor. Illiteracy rates are high.
Communal violence is widespread; corruption endemic. Brides are still tortured and burnt for dowries; female infanticide is common.
The caste system has lost little of its power and none of its brutality. How are we to make sense of these apparently contradictory pictures of India today?(less)
When we stand before the immutable presence of the Trimurti at Elephanta or the sensuous yakshis from Mathura or the coupling Mithunas from Khajuraho, we are mesmerised. Life flows from within these images as though they were living, palpable beings.
Radhakrishnan's sculptures in bronze build truly upon the foundations of this heritage. He is engaged with the human figure and the figure alone.
Yet he has moved far far away from the bounds of iconography, of what a figure can or cannot do. He has escaped from rigid textual prescriptions for pratima, the icon in worship.
Indeed, he does not distinguish between the sacred icon and the profane. He is not concerned with proportions of anatomy and canons of measurement his torsos can be bulky, bulging, roughly textured;(less)
This book, the outcome of a two year long research study, tracks the lives of nearly 3,000 of these evicted households who were relocated to Bawana on the margins of the city, and describes their struggle to live with dignity in the face of assaults on their identities, homes, rights and lives. The book presents data and evidence on a wide range of social and economic indicators to show how eviction and resettlement have eroded the rights and undermined the livelihoods of resettled families, leaving them in a state of permanent poverty from which escape seems unlikely if not impossible.

Glossary. "A new iconography of the Indian woman seems to be emerging which challenges the traditional "images" and roles of women.
Dramatic changes in projecting the woman reflect changes in societal norms and taboos—in a country which has both defiled the woman and idolised her. These roles for the modern woman are subversive, mapping out bold new frontiers for her to explore.
The effects are persuasive in being projected through the media, the fourth estate in society and through the popular genre of Hindi cinema. Set against the feminist discourse, these images raise different questions about "seeing" the Indian woman.
Traced over the century, they suggest an extraordinary transformation in(less)

From the foreword: "In the present publication, the authors have followed the international nomenclature while describing the genetics of coal, in brief, and the constituents of different types, in detail. Such documentation of the constituent components namely macerals and microlithotypes of Indian coal will provide the necessary guidelines for students and researchers in the field.
The authors have made an attempt to establish the palaeodepositional environment, vis-a-vis geochemistry of the mire, palaeodepth and palaeotemperature of Indian coalfields. This treatise will provide the basis for further delineation of potential areas for exploration.

Indeed, the world is increasingly taken to be divided between religions (or 'cultures' or 'civilizations'), ignoring the relevance of other ways in which people see themselves through class, gender, profession, language, literature, science, music, morals or politics, and denying the real possibilities of reasoned choices. In Identity and Violence he overturns such stereotypes as the 'the monolithic Middle East' or 'the Western Mind'.
Through his penetrating investigation of such subjects as multiculturalism, fundamentalism, terrorism and globalization, he brings out the need for a clear-headed understanding of human freedom and a constructive(less)
