Madras Then is an extensively researched collection of pictures showcasing the city as it once was. From images documenting the construction of the artificial Madras harbour to the fateful day when the German cruiser Emden attacked Chennai (making it the only Indian city to have sustained a direct attack during the Great War). The beginnings of modern Madras culture have been well documented with alluring pictures of some of Indias earliest businessmen, industrialists, parliamentarians, actors and actors turned politicians. This book features images sourced from the private archives of the citys prominent families with some of them being published for the first time. Be it politics, sport, movies, education or even the independence struggle, Madras then features pictures and paintings of almost every event and sociocultural phenomenon that has left an indelible mark on Indian history. Awarded the title of the best metro by a magazine survey conducted in 2013, Chennai is a city of dichotomies home to some of Indias glitziest malls and retail chains and yet a city where the streets still come alive with kolam drawing competitions. The proud base of some of the countrys premier software companies but where the highly educated techie employees still enter office with vibhuti on their foreheads. A place often written off as being conservative but located in the region that hosts the largest festival of transgenders in the country. Chennai Now perfectly captures the many ironies of Chennai, featuring aerial photographs (unpublished thus far) of the city that document its changing skyline. A fascinating insight into India's most livable city. Printed Pages: 240 with numerous colour photographs. 037990

Redeeming Calcutta: A Portrait of India's Imperial Capital takes a fresh look at one of Asia's great cities, a metropolis of hope and decay that was once the Second City of the British Empire after London. In this storied colonial metropolis, National Geographic photographer and educator Steve Raymer discovers a city of high culture, leftist politics, and ambitions to reclaim its past grandeur. With around 200 photographs, including historic black-and-white images, the book takes us through the streets, ghats, and corridors of Calcutta to capture the imperial/historical city, the city in motion, commerce and business, the practice of faith, the country's cultural hub, and politics.

The volume also includes a Foreword by acclaimed historian, Dipesh Chakrabarty. Printed Pages: 208 with numerous colour illustrations. 037712

22 The Light Within: A Different Vision of Life

Sipra Das

Niyogi Books, New Delhi, India, 2013, 9789381523629, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 23 x 27 Cm 
When Sipra Das first envisaged a book that would capture the lives of the visually impaired, she did not want it to inspire the usual blend of sympathy and pity, instead she wanted the book to evoke a sense of awe and empathy. The book presents the stories of individuals who have survived to not only pursue their interest but also excel at it. Sangeeta, the daughter of an iron trader in Muzaffarpur, Bihar, is sightless but she runs a residential school for the visually impaired and is also the brains behind Shubham, an NGO dedicated to help poor children in the neighboring villages. Like her, there are several others who have shown tremendous perseverance in their lives. It is their story that is told in this book. In The Light Within, readers get a glimpse of such lives which inspire one to look at life in a new way. Printed Pages: 202. 037878

30 Visual Histories: Photography in the Popular Imagination

Malavika Karlekar

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2013, 0198090269 / 9780198090267, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 16 x 24 Cm 
32 essays document history through photographs and the history of photographs in India Maps changes in photographic protocols and discourse Includes around 36 rare archival photographs Author, well-known researcher Not much is known about how the coming of photography changed visual discourse or affected people's lives. Divided into two sections, this selection of 32 essays, each illustrated with archival photographs, looks at the camera in the colonial era and in post-independent India. In the nineteenth century, the camera and the studio became necessary prostheses in the new engagement between the colonized and the rulers. Europeans in India-of whom the British were the largest in number-were the initial users of the photographic studio. Early studio images of the sahib-civil servant, lawyer, tea planter, missionary, and so on-are among the first available visuals; soon the memsahib appeared at his side with or without self-conscious offspring. The events of 1857 marked a watershed in photography in India. By this time, as the urban middle classes started patronizing photographic studios, these became instrumental in fracturing notions of space and visibility: where the use of public space was governed by the discriminatory practices of race and gender, the photographic studio became a shared locale. Interestingly, Indian entrepreneurs started investing in studios and some like Lala Deen Dayal became noted photographers. The second section looks at some such moments, and studio photographs initially focused on the new Indian professional-the doctor, lawyer, engineer, and civil servant-and then with wife and children. It moves on to the emergence of the emancipated Indian woman, the horror of Partition, and finally to independent India and the work of Sunil Janah and Homai Vyarawalla. Together the 32 essays included in the volume document both: history through photographs and the history of photographs in India. Printed Pages: 208. 037949
