ECONOMIC GROWTH

Title : Can India grow without Bharat?
Author : Shankar Acharya
Pub. Details : Academic Foundation : New Delhi , 2007

Can India grow without Bharat? Can we reap the "demographic dividend" of a young population? How should we revive industrial employment? Is the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act affordable? Why have reforms sputtered despite the "dream team"? How is growth so strong though reforms have stalled? How can populism be restrained? Can 8 per cent growth be sustained? Should we deploy forex reserves to build infrastructure? What must we do to renew our decaying cities? What is the solution to the coming water crisis? Who are India's tax reformers? Can bilateral trade agreements substitute for the Doha Round? Should SAARC have a common currency? Is "fiscal responsibility" working? Does monetary policy work? Can we really aspire to China's economic league - or is it all hype? How good is our foreign policy? The eminent economist Shankar Acharya provides forthright and provocative answers to these key issues about India's development.

Title :

The Appeal

Author : John Grisham
Pub. Details :

Arrow Books : London , 2008

Notes :

The story centers on a small Mississippi law firm who wins a big verdict over a chemical giant, Krane, that has spread carcinogenic pollutants. Krane, fearful that this verdict, if not overturned, would set a precedent that would eventually destroy it, goes into action. It files an appeal that will find its way to the state supreme court, and hires a "dirty tricks" firm to unseat a sitting justice believe to be unfriendly. This is a viable strategy since Mississippi elects their Supreme Court justices and 69% of its voters know little about the court's candidates. The "Appeal" provides a believable primer on how to rig an election - pick a victim; promote an unknown candidate with no visible record; and ambush the victim by painting him/her as a extreme ideologue (this liberal judge will destroy the family). Done well...and the election process is subverted.

Title :

The Calcutta chromosome

Author:  Amitav Ghosh
Pub. Details : Penguin, New Delhi, 1996
Notes :

The Calcutta Chromosome is one of those books that's marketed as a mainstream thriller even though it is an excellent science fiction novel (It won the prestigious Arthur C. Clarke Award). The main character is a man named Antar, whose job is to monitor a somewhat finicky computer that sorts through mountains of information. When the computer finds something it can't catalog, it brings the item to Antar's attention. A string of these seemingly random anomalies puts Antar on the trail of a man named Murugan, who disappeared in Calcutta in 1995 while searching for the truth behind the discovery of the cure for malaria. This search for Murugan leads, in turn, to the discovery of the Calcutta Chromosome, which can shift bits of personality from one person to another. That's when things really get interesting.

FICTION

Title : The shadow lines
Author :  Amitav Ghosh
Pub. Details : Penguin Viking : New Delhi , 2008
Contents :

The Shadow Lines is a novel by Amitav Ghosh, published in 1988. It is a book that well captures the perspectival view of time and events, of lines that bring people together and hold them apart, lines that are clearly visible on one perspective and nonexistent on another. Lines that exist in the memory of one, and therefore in another's imagination. A narrative built out of an intricate, constantly criss-crossing web of memories of many people, it never pretends to tell a story. Rather it invites the reader to invent one, out of the memories of those involved, memories that hold mirrors of differing shades to the same experience.

Keywords : Fiction , Novel

FICTION

Title :

In an antique land

Author : Amitav Ghosh
Pub. Details : Penguin, New Delhi, 1992
Notes :

In a leisurely blend of travelogue, history and cross-cultural analysis, Indian writer Ghosh reconstructs a 12th-century master-slave relationship that confounds modern concepts of slavery. Abraham Ben Yiju, a prosperous Tunisian Jewish merchant based in medieval Cairo, resettled in Aden, then spent two decades on India's Malabar Coast, where he hired a slave or servant, probably of Indian origin, named Bomma. Bomma acted as Ben Yiju's business agent and made overseas trips for him. In medieval India and the Middle East, Ghosh points out, servitude was often a career opportunity, the principal means of recruitment into privileged strata of the army and bureaucracy. Researching in letters and documents in Egypt, where he lived for several years, Ghosh ( The Shadow Lines ) evokes a world of mud-walled houses and class warfare between Egyptian laborers and landowners. He also writes vividly of southern India, a tapestry of castes, cults and worship of spirit-deities.
