    My Experiences in Government

    G.V. Ramakrishna


    About the Book

    <p>Rarely does a civil servant have such a wide variety of assignments over a period of fifty years, that include key posts offered, after retirement, by four different Prime Ministers. Even more rare is &nbsp;to find an officer who has acted so independently and come out unscathed. This is the story of G.V. Ramakrishna, who held some of the sensitive and high profile jobs in the last twenty years of his service.<span style="line-height: 1.6em;">Well known as the redoubtable Chairman of SEBI, he was a crusader for protecting the interests of the small investor.&nbsp;He took strong measures to ban badla.</span><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">As the first Chairman of the Disinvestment Commission he charted the road map for successful disinvestments.&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">He was the only one to have successfully thwarted Quattrochi in his efforts to grab a major project.</span><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">Throughout his career G.V. Ramakrishna has upheld the best traditions of his service and has been acknowledged as the role model for others.&nbsp;</span></p> <p><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">In this book, Ramakrishna provides a first hand account of how Government functioned at high levels in the States and at the Centre. The subtle methods of utilizing Government institutions for unconstitutional, political and bureaucratic ends, have been brought out with modesty and sensitivity.</span><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">In a rather unusual style, the book employs multiple elements of presentation. An easy-read narrative (born out of the autobiographical impulse of a senior bureaucrat turned author) is well supported by extensive references, relevant media clippings and other annexures. This is followed by a select set of articles on varied themes of general and current interest, where Ramakrishna does not hesitate to voice his views on some interesting and debatable issues. Plus, interspersed with the text are pictures, cartoons and photographs from the author’s personal collection — all of which contribute towards making the book truly worth possessing.</span><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">Concerned citizens, civil servants, students and the faculties of institutions, will find this book of absorbing interest.</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>In this book G V Ramakrishna talks about : <strong>the scam of 1992, the HBJ pipeline, the Enron imbroglio, the Oman Gas pipeline, disinvestment issues, relations between politicians and civil servants, corruption, coalition governments and hung parliaments and much more ....</strong></p>

    Selections from Selected Speeches of Dr. Manmohan Singh

    Raj Kapila (Ed.)


    About the Book

    <p>All prime ministers deliver speeches. What makes Dr. Manmohan Singh's speeches exquisite is that they bear the imprint of true statesmanship, vast knowledge and above all the rare patriotic fervour of a visionary leader.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>This book offers a glimpse.</p> <p>These 'selections' begin with : "There comes an occasion, though rarely, in the life of a nation, when it can be said that the time has come to make history. We are today at the threshold of such an era... Our political system and leadership must show sagacity, wisdom and foresight so that we are able to make the best of this moment and make India a truly great nation, an India where there are no barriers between the government and the people."</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Such are the exhortations that really goad you, on and on...</p>

    A Bunch of Fragrant Roses

    P.P. Ramachandran


    About the Book

    <p>Here is a delightful medley of essays, articles, speeches, travelogues, book reviews and correspondence with the greats. The author, P.P. Ramachandran belonged to the world of banking, retiring as Deputy General Manager in Reserve Bank of India, where he worked for 40 long years. But he is a rare type of bird—a literary banker. His first love is literature and thus we find his pieces suffused with literary allusions. His encyclopaedic reading has enabled him to recall a whole host of anecdotes and stories of a racy kind.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The book is divided into five sections.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The first section includes his tributes to great personalities at various functions. We have a chance to read his tribute to Vinda Karandikar, Durga Bhagwat, Albert Einstein, Dwaram Venkataswamy Naidu, M.S. Subbulakshmi, Mumbai’s bookseller T.N. Shanbag, and S. Chandrasekhar.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Section two consists of 16 book reviews. Ramachandran is a regular reviewer of books for Free Press Journal and “Shanmukha”. He covers a variety of subjects with an authority that is impressive.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The third section is dedicated to travelogues. These are based on his travels to Europe, America, Ashtavinayak, Uttaranchal and Konkan and contain vignettes of a delightful nature.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The fourth section covers essays on a variety of subjects such as religion, science, mythology, and light articles on a number of interesting subjects.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The fifth section covers his correspondence with great personalities like Rajaji, Radhakrishnan, Abdul Kalam, Khushwant Singh, H.R.F. Keating and Paul Gallico.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>In sum, this book is a veritable feast.</p>

    The Milk Break

    And After


    About the Book

    <p>A commemorative volume celebrating 50 years of a glorious institution, the Raghubir Singh Junior Modern School (RSJMS), this record is packed with rich archival material, including anecdotes, photographs, and messages, woven into a crisp commentary. Offering the reader an interesting and picturesque glimpse into the life and times of one of India’s most sought-after schools, this book attempts to answer questions such as: Why Modernites from different walks of life consider them-selves so connected to each other? and Why do they feel privileged to have been a part of this institution? From its beginnings in an old bungalow in Daryaganj to the founding of the RSJMS at Humayun Road in 1961, this comprehensive history will be interesting, not only to ex-students, parents, teachers, and others associated with the school, but also to anyone connected with education</p>

    Vicereine

    The Indian Journal of Mary Minto

    Anabel Loyd (Ed.)


    About the Book

    <p>Mary Minto was a woman of her times. Some of her opinions would make contemporary feminists, egalitarians of all sorts, gasp in horror but her extraordinary charm and passion for life, her sense of humour and sharp eye and ear for place, person and dialogue make her irresistible. The people she met, the sights she saw and wrote of from her ringside position are part of all our histories most deliciously described in her journal. Even Lord Kitchener, stiff image on a poster, comes to improbable life playing parlour games at Simla and winning, to general hilarity, a baby elephant at the Minto Fete. There is so much more—maharajas, palaces, tigers and bears, pet dogs, Afghanistan and Burma, kings, queens and princes, a vast brigade of servants... this is a vivid slideshow of a particular life in India at the beginning of a century of change illustrated with previously unseen photographs…riches indeed.</p>

    Curated by Abha Narain Lambah

    Malvika Singh (Series Editor)

    Ageless India Book 5



    About the Book

    <p>The material, man-made heritage of India rests in the extraordinary range of ancient and contemporary cities and historical forts; in the grand palaces and private <em>havelis,</em> the mansions and homes; in the temples, shrines and places of worship dedicated to all faiths and religions; in the gardens and tombs; even great institutions of learning. The architectural expertise spanning millenia, embellished with fine surface decoration representing time, age and purpose, makes this legacy of India unsurpassed, precious and fragile. This collection of photographs by conservation architect Abha Narain Lambah establishes the urgent need for conservation and preservation. India must take ownership of her varied and layered past to conquer the future. This compendium is merely the tip of a formidable <em>khazana.</em></p>

    A Shared Destiny

    My Journey with CHETNA

    Indu Capoor

    Offer: INR 200 off



    About the Book

    <p>It was in the early 1980s that a young nutritionist, Indu Capoor, had a vision — of an India where the health and nutrition of marginalised women and children mattered. So when she was asked by a multilateral funding agency to write a proposal, she wrote a note going well beyond a project. She proposed an institution that would work as a bridge between policy and practice. And CHETNA, or Centre for Health, Education, Training and Nutrition Awareness, was born. Chetna means awareness in Hindi and several other Indian and Asian languages. This book is as much about Indu’s own awakening as it is about CHETNA, the engendered organisation. &nbsp;</p> <p><br /> <strong>A Shared Destiny: My Journey with CHETNA,</strong> is the story of a woman committed to a cause, and of how she has built a uniquely shaped organisation that has clear engendered work spaces, policies, structures, practices and proce-dures. It is about taking strong feminist leadership to build and run a civil society organisation that has acquired huge credibility and reputation. It is about a founder-leader moving on after three decades at the top of an organisation,&nbsp;<br /> and supporting the next generation to take charge.&nbsp;</p> <p>Entrepreneurs, leaders, indeed all working women and men, in the social sector and the corporate world, will find lessons in this book to help make the world of work more gender equal.</p>

In doing this, it offers a uniquely illustrated, practical and concrete guide to conducting your business life more positively and to becoming a better manager.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>It was a conventional belief that one has to learn in classroom theory, to become a manager. But, the target keeps moving; events and people do not always conform long enough to be planned and controlled. The ways and means of management, therefore, involve continual experimentation with new approaches to old and new problems. Remember the maxim: “Try it, fix it, do it”.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Learning by doing is the best and the only way of gaining knowledge as classroom learning is nothing but the mental exercise of established knowledge attained through practice. But over a period of time classroom learning has become the primary means of learning due to lack of proper persuasion of knowledge through practical exposure and inadequacy of appropriate knowledge of instructors because of their sole dependency on theory and text rather than practical experience. So this book will help you to get the practical exposure through learning by doing rather than classroom learning.</p>

    Second Edition

    Dr Swami Parthasarathy


    About the Book

    <p>From the time immemorial, India has discovered the fourth and unique faculty of human life that is ‘value system’, which defines and leads towards the Dharma (Righteousness). This is what makes a human being different from an animal. The quality and quantum of values in practice transforms an ordinary human being into an extraordinary sage or saint.<br /> These values take the primary role of driving the human consciousness, lead humanity towards righteousness, and ultimately make them sustain in their real nature. Human values in modern management is nothing but practising management by conscience in modern world. Since the most solicited agenda in human life is sustainability into its real nature, human values only can lead oneself towards this direction and reach the ultimate goal of human life, the peace and solace.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">Man has no other option than inculcate these values for achieving certain goal through the path of righteousness. This would not only make our life better but would also help in maintaining progress and prosperity of business and corporate management, or whatever progress one aspires for a meaningful life.</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Today, the essence of human values no doubt is the lifeline of ‘the management capability’ of a person who is the key and leading figure of the entire management functions. The alarming rate of erosion of human values in management practices is a threatening factor to all round development of a nation. So, the development and practice of values is the only option for overcoming varied mental challenges in corporate life. Thus, values in practice in management shall surely transform an ordinary executive to an outstanding role model in management.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>This book, Human Values in Modern Management describes the principal values of human life and its prospective effect in management practices, its application and inculcation in the field of corporate management practices.</p>

    Transforming Personality

    Third Edition

    Dr Swami Parthasarathy


    About the Book

    <p>It is the people who constitute the nation rather than the enchanting scenic beauty of a vast and varied piece of land. People reflect the true character of a nation. The country is powerful, if the people are strong and dynamic; civilized, if the people are cultured and wise, and vice versa. The strength and glory of a nation depends on the sum total of the character of each individual constituting the nation.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The cycle of birth, growth and finally death is common to all living beings. In this cycle, birth and death are beyond our control. But with regard to growth, by disciplined effort, we can achieve systematic development of our personality and attain fulfilment&nbsp;in life. We just need to learn the technique of developing our personality in a comprehensive way.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>A comprehensive and powerful personality comprises five important elements, i.e. physical, emotional, intellectual, moral and spiritual. All these aspects are equally important to manifest the true and complete potential of a human being.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>This book is a roadmap of learning the technique for transforming our personality. It helps in understanding: (a) the basic truth behind these aspects, (b) successful implementation in day-to-day life, and (c) the techniques to sustain the effects for a happy and meaningful life.</p>
