3 An Angel in the Cockpit

Dr Vijaypat Singhania

Roli Books, New Delhi, India, 2005, 81-7436-427-7 / 9788174364272, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 8.5 x 5.5 Inches 
It began with a photograph in a magazine of an odd little aircraft that looked as though it had an upside-down tail. When Vijaypat Singhania, chairman of Raymond, leading industrialist and a respected pillar of society, saw the picture, it inspired him to take off on an adventure that could only end in disaster, if it didn’t end in glory. For, like his hero, JRD Tata, Singhania had a passion for flying, and the aircraft he saw was a Shadow microlight ?a twin-seater aircraft with a two-stroke engine akin to a motobike’s. An aircraft so small that, in his own words, sitting in it ‘felt less like being in an aircraft than wearing one? In this tiny vehicle, Singhania flew 5000 miles from England to India, in 22 days ?from 18 August to 8 September, 1988. In doing so, he broke the existing record of 34 days over the same distance, set the previous year by a British pilot, Brian Milton, and earned himself a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. As he prepares to set yet another record ?by flying to over 70,000 feet in a hot-air balloon in November 2005 ?Vijaypat Singhania recounts his adventures both hair-raising and hilarious, as he fights his fear of sharks, finds himself on a nudist beach in Iraklion, encounters Greek beauties in Milos and tough-talking Pathans in Gwadar ?with only an angel and three gods for company.

Karmapa: The Politics of Reincarnation, Lea Terhune
17 Karmapa: The Politics of Reincarnation

Lea Terhune

Wisdom Publications, Boston, USA, 2004, 0-86171-180-7 / 9780861711802, First Edition, Paperback, New, New, 15.5 Cms x 23 Cms 
While only a young man, Orgyen Trinley Dorje''s life has been marked indelibly by devotion, intrigue, and transformation. Karmapa: The Politics of Reincarnation is his amazing story. For Westerners, Tibet is a land of powerful spiritual teachings, staggering mountain vistas, and geopolitical intrigue. The country''s resistance to Chinese occupation, and also the growing presence of Tibetan Buddhism in the West, are not just part of our daily news but of the Western consciousness as well. In January 2000, interest hit a peak as fourteen-year-old Orgyen Trinley Dorje was thrust upon the world stage. Recognized as the Seventeenth Karmapa-arguably the second most powerful figure in the Tibetan Buddhist religious hierarchy-he made a dramatic escape from his Chinese Communist overseers to the land of the Buddha''s birth, India, so that he could study with the masters of his religious lineage, follow his conscience, and be a leader to his people. Through wide-ranging research and interviews with key figures, including the Karmapa himself, award-winning journalist Lea Terhune unlocks the riveting tale of the Karmapa''s disputed incarnation, and traces the roots of the Kagyu tradition and the history of the previous Karmapas in order to illuminate the tale of the young man born to play a key role in the future of Tibet.

The only eyewitness account of the US-led war to topple the Iraqi President, Saddam Hussein. A day-by-day retelling from the battlefield by Satish Jacob, the only Indian correspondent in Baghdad. From Baghdad’s Hotel Palestine, Satish’s spirited reports were the only eyewitness accounts of the drama of those days on Indian television. They were also special in that his perception of the events differed significantly from that of the Western media more prone to accept uncritically the invading armies?version of events. From Hotel Palestine, Satish Jacob writes of a nation devastated on a whim, and explains Iraq’s role in the Arab world, the complex relationships that divide the region’s Muslims, Christians and Jews. Above all, he applauds the courage of the Iraqis in this war of unequals, and shows us that while Saddam may be a loathsome monster for some, he is a nation-builder like Turkey’s Ataturk to others.

Sonia: A Biography, Rasheed Kidwai
29 Sonia: A Biography

Rasheed Kidwai

Penguin, New Delhi, India, 2003, 0670-049557 / 9780670049554, First Edition, Hardbound, New, New, 
The rise of Sonia Gandhi to leader of the venerable Congress party is one of the most remarkable stories of recent times, even in the unpredictable world of Indian politics. The story of how an apolitical housewife—who was dead set against the entrance of her husband, Rajiv Gandhi, into the political arena—emerged as an astute player of the game herself is one that has never been told. Adding to the enigma is her reserve—she has given very few interviews and remains a very private person. In Sonia: A Biography, journalist Rasheed Kidwai offers the first close look at the person and the transformation that circumstance and tragedy brought about in her. He recounts the period of shock that followed Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination, her ascent to leadership in 1998, the revolt by party stalwarts Sharad Pawar and P.A. Sangma, the controversies she has had to face, and he unravels the true story of her dealings with leaders such as Sitaram Kesri, P.V. Narasimha Rao, Arjun Singh and others. Sonia also gives a fascinating insight into the inner world of Congress politics and the frustrations and jealousies that ensue as various leaders, powerful in their own right, vie for the honour of being part of the inner circle. Extensively researched and crisply written, this is a compelling portrayal of a leader who is seen by many as a future Prime Minister. Printed Pages: 256. 003085

30 T'an Ssu-T'ung, 1865-1898: Life and Thought of a Reformer

E.J. Brill, Leiden, The Netherlands, 1996, 90-04-10471-2 / 9789004104716, First Edition, Hard Cover, Brand New, New, 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
The first full-length study in English on T'an Ssu-t'ung, a well-known scholar-reformer in late-Ch'ing China. Based on a rich variety of primary sources, it traces T'an's progress from his early years to his summary execution during the palace coup in 1898. The Introduction explains the premises and sources pertinent to this study, while the Epilogue provides an overall interpretation of T'an's life. The remaining eight chapters are organized in such a way as to allow a chronological and thematic appreciation of the book's subject matter. This is more than a biography of a remarkable individual. By placing T'an's personal experience in the larger social and political contexts, it also sheds light on an emergent intellectual community in modern China.

Timeless Rapture: Inspired Verse of the Shangpa Masters, Jamgon Kongtrul; translated and Introduced By Ngawang Zangpo
44 Timeless Rapture: Inspired Verse of the Shangpa Masters

Jamgon Kongtrul; translated and Introduced By Ngawang Zangpo

Snow Lion Publications, Ithaca, New York, USA, 1-55939-204-5 / 9781559392044, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 6 x 9 Inches 
Throughout history awakened ones have celebrated the rapture of mystical states with inspired verse, sung extemporaneously. This book offers a rare glimpse into the mysticism of the Shangpa Kagyu lineage, a tradition based mainly on the profound teaching of 2 women. This compendium of spontaneous verse sung by tantric Buddhist masters from the 10th century to the present includes translations as well as short descriptions of each poet's life and a historical overview of the lineage. "Our lineage's past spiritual masters used songs to express their manifest experience and realization of the spiritual path's vital subjects, such as the trio of basis, path, and result; or view, meditation, and conduct; as well as dispelling hindrances and enriching meditative experience. The blessings of the lineage enter our heart, the very best technique to realize our mind's abiding nature, Great Seal. I pray that all who see, hear, or read this book be blessed."-- Bokar Rinpoche "Only a fraction of Tibet's vast literature of mystical poetry has yet been translated into other languages. Now, with the gift of Ngawang Zangpo's inspired English translations, the exquisite expressions of inner experience sung by the greatest men and women of the Shangpa lineage of Tibetan Buddhism are available to the world."-- Cyrus Stearns, author of The Buddha from Dolpo, Hermit of Go Gliffs, and Luminous Lives "Ngawang Zangpo's fluid translation and rich commentary truly brings us into the presence of the extra-ordinary masters of the Shangpa Kagyu tradition. As we listen to their verse, we are transported by their devotion, awakened wisdom, and blessing to the Vajra world that has become their home."-- Lama Drupgyu Tenzin "Ngawang Zangpo has given us, for the first time in English, the complete translation of the Songs of Realization of the Shangpa masters. This is a living, unbroken lineage, of fully realized mahasiddhas, both female and male, whose teachings burst forth in spontaneous song. Through the centuries these pith instructions have inspired and brought to full realization generations of yogis and yoginis. I highly recommend Timeless Rapture for its illuminating and joyful transmission."-- Lama Palden Drolma, Sukhasiddhi Foundation Printed Pages: 416. 001689

46 Truth, Love and a Little Malice: An Autobiography

Khushwant Singh

Penguin, New Delhi, India, 2002, 0-14-302957-6 / 9780143029571, First Edition, Paperback, New, 14 x 22 Cm 
Born in 1915 in pre-Partition Punjab, Khushwant Singh, perhaps India’s most widely read and controversial writer, has been witness to most of the major events in modern Indian history—from Independence and Partition to the Emergency and Operation Blue Star—and has known many of the figures who have shaped it. With clarity and candour, he writes of leaders like Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi, the terrorist Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, the talented and scandalous painter Amrita Shergil, and everyday people who became butchers during Partition. Writing of his own life, too, Khushwant Singh remains unflinchingly forthright. He records his professional triumphs and failures as a lawyer, journalist, writer and member of Parliament; the comforts and disappointments in his marriage of over sixty years; his first, awkward sexual encounter; his phobia of ghosts and his fascination with death; the friends who betrayed him, and also those whom he failed. 012925
