Book Summary :

Shivaji is a well-known hero in western India. He defied Mughal power in the seventeenth century, established an independent kingdom, and had himself crowned in an orthodox Hindu ceremony. The legends of his life have become an epic story that everyone in western India knows, and an important part of the Hindu nationalists' ideology. To read Shivaji's legend today is to find expression of deeply held convictions about what Hinduism means and how it is opposed to Islam. James Laine traces the origin and development if the Shivaji legend from the earliest sources to the contemporary accounts of the tale. His primary concern is to discover the meaning of Shivaji's life for those who have composed-and those who have read-the legendary accounts of his military victories, his daring escapes, his relationships with saints. In the process, he paints a new and more complex picture of Hindu-Muslim relations from the seventeenth century to the present. He argues that this relationship involved a variety of compromises and strategies, from conflict to accommodation to nuanced collaboration. Neither Muslims nor Hindus formed clearly defined communities, says Laine, and they did not relate to each other as opposed monolithic groups. Different sub-groups, representing a range of religious persuasions, found it in their advantage to accentuate or diminish the importance of Hindu and Muslim identity and the ideologies that supported the construction of such identities. By studying the evolution of the Shivaji legend, Laine demonstrates, we can trace the development of such constructions in both pre-British and post-colonial periods.

Book Summary :

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From the author of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? and creator of The Mindy Project and Never Have I Ever comes a hilarious collection of essays about her ongoing journey to find contentment and excitement in her adult life. “This is Kaling at the height of her power.”—USA Today In Why Not Me?, Kaling shares insightful, deeply personal stories about falling in love at work, seeking new friendships in lonely places, attempting to be the first person in history to lose weight without any behavior modification whatsoever, and believing that you have a place in Hollywood when you’re constantly reminded that no one looks like you. In “How to Look Spectacular: A Starlet’s Confessions,” Kaling gives her tongue-in-cheek secrets for surefire on-camera beauty, (“Your natural hair color may be appropriate for your skin tone, but this isn’t the land of appropriate–this is Hollywood, baby. Out here, a dark-skinned woman’s traditional hair color is honey blonde.”) “Player” tells the story of Kaling being seduced and dumped by a female friend in L.A. (“I had been replaced by a younger model. And now they had matching bangs.”) In “Unlikely Leading Lady,” she muses on America’s fixation with the weight of actresses, (“Most women we see onscreen are either so thin that they’re walking clavicles or so huge that their only scenes involve them breaking furniture.”) And in “Soup Snakes,” Kaling spills some secrets on her relationship with her ex-boyfriend and close friend, B.J. Novak (“I will freely admit: my relationship with B.J. Novak is weird as hell.”) Mindy turns the anxieties, the glamour, and the celebrations of her second coming-of-age into a laugh-out-loud funny collection of essays that anyone who’s ever been at a turning point in their life or career can relate to. And those who’ve never been at a turning point can skip to the parts where she talks about meeting Bradley Cooper.

Book Summary :

This is a product of my life-long reseach to unearth the facts that Lord Indra, the King of the Gods o Hindu Gods Pantheon was a human being only, and was a proven historical person of the 15th Cenrury BC, which so far remained covered under the imposed Indian Mythology of millennium after millennium. This is the first-time unearthing of the top-most Vedic Hindu God, Indra, from the Myth of Celescial figure to the real facts of proven and recorded history of Mesopotamia, and duly corroborated by the TEXT OF RIG-VEDA, the most ancient Holy Book, written in a language of Pre-Sanskrit Indo-Aryan Language, an written in the Cunneiform Scripts, and later on shited in Sanskrit Devanagari Scripts. This Research Publicaton of the present author is a Flagship-Book, on the other revelations, that [1] Rig-Veda was a sudden and forced creation to give birth to a totally NEW RELIGION, now called " Vedic Hinduism" just started in 1432 BC: [2] and all the major Gods of Rig-Veda, except Agni, Vayu etc, were all living humans of the 15th Cenrury BC, two of them, namely Varuna, the Emperor of Babylon, whose Emperial Title in Mesopotamia History was" Burna Buriash" and other God, Mitra, [ alternative name of Sun] was King of Mitanni Kingdom, having official title, Paratarrna Parashastra, and all the 13 New Gods, rarrated in the 62% Hymns of 1028 Hymns of Rig-Veda were used to make them king, [ Vide, the next book of this Series, written by this Aouthor, titled as " All Indo-Aryan Vedic Hindu Gods were of Mesopotamina Origin", followed by the " Life and Career of Indra as per Rig-Veda" re-created with the help of recovered and well-preserved historcal records, and ancient archaelogical evidences, including Indra's own Inscription, statue, Royal Seal, Indra's Clay tablets, and traced out locations of his lifes [the Mesopotamian Part] and Indra life and Career in the-then Greater India, including Afghanisthan and Eastern Iran, has been re-constructed by the well-preserved oldest Text of Rig-Vedic Hymns, wriiten in the life-time of Lord Indra as trustable tesimonies as good as wriiten Inscriptions on the stones. The last 10-years of labors of the author on studies of the Oldest Religious Text of Rig-Veda and contemporary historical and archaeological records, brough a fresh new revealations on the begining of the Hinduism in it's first phase, and threw new lights of Indilogy of India and it's polical history and kingdoms of that relevant times, massive destructions of Pre-Arryan people and their civilisation and culture, and fisrt big-bang of the Arryanisation of India, that controlled the remaining history of Indian political, religious, cultural, social life in the mainstream of Indian till today.

Book Summary :

Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?” Perhaps you want to know what Mindy thinks makes a great best friend (someone who will fill your prescription in the middle of the night), or what makes a great guy (one who is aware of all elderly people in any room at any time and acts accordingly), or what is the perfect amount of fame (so famous you can never get convicted of murder in a court of law), or how to maintain a trim figure (you will not find that information in these pages). If so, you’ve come to the right book, mostly! In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Mindy invites readers on a tour of her life and her unscientific observations on romance, friendship, and Hollywood, with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls. Mindy Kaling really is just a Girl Next Door—not so much literally anywhere in the continental United States, but definitely if you live in India or Sri Lanka. This enhanced eBook includes an audio introduction from the author; audio commentary from Mindy’s friends, including The Office costar B. J. Novak and Parks and Recreation creator Michael Schur; bonus photos, including an exclusive “Avalanche of Awkwardness” slideshow of never-before-seen childhood photos with audio commentary; and three full chapters read by the author.

Book Summary :

The way people encounter ideas of Hinduism online is often shaped by global discourses of religion, pervasive Orientalism and (post)colonial scholarship. This book addresses a gap in the scholarly debate around defining Hinduism by demonstrating the role of online discourses in generating and projecting images of Hindu religion and culture. This study surveys a wide range of propaganda, websites and social media in which definitions of Hinduism are debated. In particular, it focuses on the role of Hindu nationalism in the presentation and management of Hinduism in the electronic public sphere. Hindu nationalist parties and individuals are highly invested in discussions and presentations of Hinduism online, and actively shape discourses through a variety of strategies. Analysing Hindu nationalist propaganda, cyber activist movements and social media presence, as well as exploring methodological strategies that are useful to the field of religion and media in general, the book concludes by showing how these discourses function in the wider Hindu diaspora. Building on religion and media research by highlighting mechanical and hermeneutic issues of the Internet and how it affects how we encounter Hinduism online, this book will be of significant interest to scholars of religious studies, Hindu studies and digital media.

Book Summary :

Hinduism is one of the world's oldest and greatest religious traditions. In captivating prose, Shashi Tharoor untangles its origins, its key philosophical concepts and texts. He explores everyday Hindu beliefs and practices, from worship to pilgrimage to caste, and touchingly reflects on his personal beliefs and relationship with the religion. Not one to shy from controversy, Tharoor is unsparing in his criticism of 'Hindutva', an extremist, nationalist Hinduism endorsed by India's current government. He argues urgently and persuasively that it is precisely because of Hinduism's rich diversity that India has survived and thrived as a plural, secular nation. If narrow fundamentalism wins out, Indian democracy itself is in peril.
