Islam ki Buniyaad

Islam ki Buniyaad

पुस्तक की शुरूआत होती है इस्लाम के प्रवर्तक मोहम्मद के निधन के तुरंत बाद की घटनाओं से। उनके निधन के बाद तुरंत सत्ता संघर्ष शुरू हो जाता है कि खलीफा कौन बनेगा। सबके अपने-अपने तर्क थे और अपने-अपने दावे। कोई धमकी दे रहा था तो कोई विद्रोह कर रहा था। अंत में सहमति इस पर बनी कि खलीफा कोई अरब का होना चाहिए और मोहम्मद के कबीले का होना चाहिए। पुस्तक बताती है कि इस्लाम के पहले चार खलीफा 'सही निर्देशित खलीफा, कहे गये। उसके बाद ज्यों-ज्यों इस्लाम फैलता गया, सत्ता का संघर्ष अपने विकृत रूप में सामने आता गया और धर्मपरायणता पीछे छूटती चली गयी। यह भी वर्णन है कि विभिन्न खलीफाओं के प्रश्रय से इस्लाम में नृत्य, गीत, संगीत और विज्ञान को बढ़ावा मिला।

The Himalayan Face-off: Chinese Assertion and the Indian Riposte

The Himalayan Face-off: Chinese Assertion and the Indian Riposte

In April 2013, Indian troops sighted an advance patrol of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) 19 km deep within Indian territory, a considerable distance from the Line of Actual Control, the de facto border claim line that was drawn up after the 1962 war between the two countries - a war that still traumatizes the mind of India's political and military establishment.Protracted negotiations led to the withdrawal of the Chinese troops but the incursion laid bare the intent of the world's largest standing army. Despite recent advances in the bilateral relationship, highlighted by the nearly $70 billion trade between the two countries, China continues to regard Indian interests as secondary and India as a regional adversary. In this breakthrough work, seasoned journalist and author of the bestselling Indian Mujahideen Shishir Gupta details the various advances made by Beijing, particularly the PLA, in encircling India and stifling the latter's bid to break out as an aspiring superpower. Gupta discusses Indian political, diplomatic and military responses to China's assertion in the subcontinent and beyond and the various course corrections India must undergo in its foreign and defence policies to counter China's might and influence on matters of India's national security. In describing how India must realize and counter China's clout over its friends and enemies if it is to achieve superpower status, Gupta sheds new light on Indo-China relations. The Himalayan Face-Off: Chinese Assertion and the Indian Riposte is an important reminder of the realigned geopolitics of the modern world, where the two most populous nations on the planet are essentially battling each other over their share of the global pie - sometimes on the world's highest battlegrounds.

Foundations of Misery: Blunders of the Nehruvian Era

Foundations of Misery: Blunders of the Nehruvian Era

Foundations of Misery focuses on the blunders of the Nehruvian era, many of which still affect and vitiate India's present. It is hoped that once there is an enlightened understanding of the past, free from the pervasive fiction, India would be better able to tackle its present and future. The book attempts to unravel the mystery and the truth in-depth on why India remains a poor, pathetic, third-rate, third-world country. How's it that India got so left behind? What was it that India did, or did not do, after independence, that everything is so abysmal and pathetic? Why an overwhelming majority of millions of Indians continue to be condemned to a life of unmitigated misery? What are the foundations of this misery?And why all this unmitigated misery despite the overwhelming advantage of India as a nation with first-rate people, plentiful natural resources, grand civilisational heritage, rich culture and languages, unmatched ethical and spiritual traditions and relatively much better position in all fields and mdash;infrastructure, trained manpower, bureaucracy and army and mdash;at the time of independence compared to many east-Asian nations who have since overtaken us? Why did India fail to leverage such rich assets of a gifted country?Incidents, information and revelations would shock readers and make them exclaim: and ldquo;Oh God, was this so? I didn't know! and rdquo; Not that the facts or revelations are new; only they are not commonly known.The book will appeal to a wide cross-section of people, especially those who are concerned about the framing and implementation of right policies for India's development.

Highway 39 : Journeys Through A Fractured Land

Highway 39 : Journeys Through A Fractured Land

In Highway 39: Journeys through a Fractured Land, Sudeep Chakravarti attempts to unravel the brutal history of Nagaland and Manipur, their violent and restive present, and their uncertain and yet desperately hopeful future, as he travels along Dimapur, Kohima, Senapati, Imphal, Thoubal, and their hinterlands-all touch points of brutalized aspiration, identity, conflict and tragedy. These are the lands that nurture deadly acronyms-like AFSPA, an act of Parliament that with impunity hurts and kills citizens. Lands where militants not only battle the Indian government but also each other in a frenzy of ego, politics and survival, and enforce 'parallel' administrations. Sudeep Chakravarti's journey introduces the reader to stories that chill, anger and offer uneasy reflection. A fourteen-year-old Naga girl who dies resisting a soldier's attempt to rape her-and is now an icon. An eleven-year-old girl abducted by police in Manipur because they want to trap her parents. A faked encounter in Imphal that kills a former rebel, and also an innocent lady and her unborn child. A family in Kohima still trying to come to terms with the death of their youngest child in a mortar attack. Chakravarti also interacts with security and military officials, senior bureaucrats, top rebel leaders, and human rights and social activists, to paint a terrifying picture of a society and a people brought repeatedly to breakdown through years of political conceit and deceit, and stress and conflict. In prose suffused with a rare understanding of the region and its people, and with remarkable insight into its convoluted politics, Highway 39 brings into focus a region long neglected and often forgotten by Mainland India, a region surrounded by nations historically inimical to India-and yet, which offer a dream gateway to the markets of East Asia. A region India can continue to ignore only at the peril of the very idea of India.

Islamic Rajya Ka Bhram

Islamic Rajya Ka Bhram

खरी-खरी बातें कहने के लिए बहुचर्चित लेखक तारिक फतेह ने अपनी इस किताब में बताया है कि इस्लामिक राज्य एक भ्रम मात्र है। खलीफाओं के समय से ही धर्म को पीछे धकेलकर राजनीतिक सत्ता को प्रमुखता दी जाती रही है। अरब के रेगिस्तान से यह धर्म पूरी दुनिया में फैला, लेकिन धर्म केवल मुखौटा रहा। असली संघर्ष तो गद्दी पर बैठने के लिए था। इसी के लिए रक्तपात हुआ और गर्दने उड़ा दी जाती रहीं। आज जो तत्व इस्लामी राज्य की बात करते है, वे बड़ी चालाकी से इस्लाम के इतिहास पर पर्दा डाले रहते हैं। पुस्तक में बताया गया है कि जब-जब खलीफा उदार रहे, तब-तब समाज में चौमुखी प्रगति हुई, लेकिन जैसे ही धार्मिक कट्टरता बढ़ी, परिस्थितियाँ बिगड़ती गयीं। इस्लाम के विकास को समझने के लिए यह पुस्तक अनिवार्य है।

Europe's India

Europe's India

When Portuguese explorers first rounded the Cape of Good Hope and arrived in the subcontinent in the late fifteenth century, Europeans had little direct knowledge of India. The maritime passage opened new opportunities for exchange of goods as well as ideas. Traders were joined by ambassadors, missionaries, soldiers and scholars from Portugal, England, Holland, France, Italy and Germany, all hoping to learn about India for reasons as varied as their particular nationalities and professions. In the following centuries they produced a body of knowledge about India that significantly shaped European thought. Europe's India tracks Europeans' changing ideas of India over the entire early modern period. Sanjay Subrahmanyam brings his expertise and erudition to bear in exploring the connection between European representations of India and the fascination with collecting Indian texts and objects that took root in the sixteenth century. European notions of India's history, geography, politics and religion were strongly shaped by the manuscripts, paintings and artifacts--both precious and prosaic--that found their way into Western hands. Subrahmanyam rejects the opposition between "true" knowledge of India and the self-serving fantasies of European Orientalists. Instead, he shows how knowledge must always be understood in relation to the concrete circumstances of its production. Europe's India is as much about how the East came to be understood by the West as it is about how India shaped Europe's ideas concerning art, language, religion and commerce.
