Steve Jobs bio may be Amazons top seller



The new biography of the late Apple Inc chief Steve Jobs is likely to be Amazon.com Incs top-selling book of 2011, a spokeswoman at the Internet retailer said on Monday. Steve Jobs, by Walter Isaacson, hit bookstores on Monday though the digital version was released earlier than expected late on Sunday on Apples iBooks online store and Amazons Kindle eBook store. The biography is the best-selling book on Amazon.com and is also listed as the top-selling electronic book on the Kindle.


The way things are trending, it could very likely be our top-selling book of the year, Amazon spokeswoman Brittany Turner said in a statement. She did not say how eBook sales compared to physical books, but James McQuivey, an analyst at Forrester Research, said that on average 50 per cent of bestsellers are digital and in some cases that can go as high as 70 per cent. Its very likely for the next six months this book will outperform the physical version, he said. Simon & Schuster, a division of CBS Corp and the publishing house behind the book, declined to give sales projections.


Years in the making

Jobs reached out to Isaacson in the summer of 2004 and asked the former Time magazine managing editor to consider writing his biography. At first, Isaacson turned down the offer on the grounds that Jobs was still in the heyday of his career. He reconsidered after realizing that the request came as Jobs was going to be operated on for a rare form of pancreatic cancer. Isaacson took two years to write the book, which drew upon more than 40 exclusive interviews with Jobs including one week before his death on October 5.


Simon & Schuster originally slated the bio first titled iSteve: The Book of Jobs, for publication in early 2012. It subsequently twice pushed up the date, first to November 21 and then finally to October 24. That is unusually quick in an industry where it normally takes publishers at least a year to take a book to market. There is some precedence though. Publication of the late Senator Edward Kennedys memoir True Compass, for example, was also brought forward and landed on shelves a few weeks after he died in 2009.
Normally it takes a year for a publication to prep the marketplace, said Robert Gottlieb, a literary agent who is chairman of the Trident Media Group. The special thing about (Jobs) book is its not a book that requires a year long preparation for a marketing campaign because the subject sells itself.


There are other factors to consider when pushing up a date including making sure the press run is correct, getting the books from warehouse to the stores, and making sure the stores have a place to trumpet the book. Even electronic distribution comes with its own concerns.


There is a huge amount of work sorting out the meta data, delivering the feeds and having to deal with quality control, said one publishing executive, who added it often takes a lot of human eyeballs to make sure the electronic transfer goes smoothly. Another publishing source who did not want to be named due to the sensitivity of the topic believes the Jobs bio had pretty much been completed when Simon & Schuster announced the publication back in the spring.

ORPHAN OF ISLAM
Alexander Khan
Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers
ISBN: 9780007444786
Price: Rs. 350.00
Born in 1975 in the UK to a Pakistani father
and an English mother, Alexander Khan
spent his early years as a Muslim in the
north of England. But at the age of three his
family was torn apart when his father took
him to Pakistan. Despite his desperate cries,
that were the last he saw of his mother – he
was told she had walked out and abandoned
them; many years later he learned she was
told he’d died in a car crash in Pakistan.
Three years on Alex is brought back to
England, but kept hidden at all times. His
father disappears to Pakistan again, leaving
Alex in the care of a stepmother and her
cruel brother. And it is then that his
troubles really begin. Seen as an outsider by
both the white kids and the Pakistani kids,
Alex is lost and alone. When his father dies
unexpectedly, Alex is sent back to Pakistan to
stay with his ‘family’ and learn to behave like
a ‘good Muslim’.
Now alone in a strange, hostile country, with
nobody to protect him, Alex realizes what it
is to be truly orphaned. No one would listen.
No one would help. And no one cared when
he was kidnapped by men from his own
family and sent to a fundamentalist
Madrassa on the Afghanistan border.
A fascinating and compelling account of
young boy caught between two cultures, this
book tells the true story of a child
desperately searching for his place in the
world; the tale of a boy, lost and alone,
trying to find a way to repair a life shattered
by the shocking event he witnessed through
a crack in the door of a house in an isolated
village in Pakistan.

NATURAL DISASTERS AND INDIAN HISTORY
Tirthankar Roy
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 0198075375
Price: Rs. 195.00
The Oxford India Short Introductions are
concise, stimulating, and accessible guides
to different aspects of India. Combining
authoritative analysis, new ideas, and diverse
perspectives, they discuss subjects which are
topical yet enduring, as also emerging areas
of study and debate.
This short and exploratory study is the first
to engage with a social and economic history
of natural disasters in India. Based on the
study of a number of events that occurred in
colonial India between 1770 and 1935, the
author argues that the impact of natural
disasters requires a graded sense of time.
The book draws on three themes-market,
politics, and knowledge, roughly
corresponding to three time scales-the
short, the medium, and the long run,
respectively. These frame the case studies of
famines, earthquakes, and storms covered in
the book.
These studies illustrate that disasters
become devastating events by impairing the
capacity of the state and civil society; they
create gainers and losers; and they destroy
cooperation. Yet, as the author points out,
disasters have also enabled new
understandings of nature, state, and society,
on the basis of which useful new knowledge
could grow.

Discusses a wide range of applications of
probability theory in science, economics,
and a variety of other contexts.
PROBABILITY: A Very Short Introduction
John Haigh
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 9780199588480
Price: Rs. 165.00
Making good decisions under conditions of
uncertainty - which is the norm - requires a
sound appreciation of the way random
chance works. As analysis and modelling of
most aspects of the world, and all
measurement, are necessarily imprecise and
involve uncertainties of varying degrees, the
understanding and management of
probabilities is central to much work in the
sciences and economics.
In this Very Short Introduction, John Haigh
introduces the ideas of probability and
different philosophical approaches to
probability, and gives a brief account of the
history of development of probability theory,
from Galileo and Pascal to Bayes, Laplace,
Poisson, and Markov.
He describes the basic probability
distributions, and goes on to discuss a wide
range of applications in science, economics,
and a variety of other contexts such as
games and betting. He concludes with an
intriguing discussion of coincidences and
some curious paradoxes.

GREAT GAME EAST:
India, China and the Struggle for Asia’s Most
Volatile Frontier
Bertil Lintner
Publisher: Harper Collins India
ISBN: 9789350293454
Price: Rs. 699.00
There was the 'Great Game', the complex
political machinations of Victorian Britain
and Tsarist Russia in the nineteenth century;
and there was the 'New Great Game', the
conflict between the Western powers and
Russia and China over Central Asia's oil and
natural resources. But there is another Great
Game that's playing out in Asia one that will
significantly impact the course of global
politics. Bertil Lintner calls it the 'Great Game
East'.
On the eastern fringes of the Indian
subcontinent, the rivalry between India and
China grows ever warmer. The call of the
Nehruvian era, Hindi-Chini Bhai-Bhai, was
drowned out by the resistance in Tibet and
the unrest in India's northeast, and the role
the two countries played in these. The rivalry
resulted in an on-the-ground battle in 1962,
and an undeclared war since. Spies and
agents from both countries have been
stirring up trouble in the volatile frontier
areas all these years.
Besides, intelligence agencies of various
other countries (the United States, among
them) have also been keeping a sharp eye on
the developments in the region, particularly
India's northeast. Strategically located at the
crossroads of the Indian subcontinent, China
and Southeast Asia, the northeastern states
of India and the continuing armed strife in
that sector hold the key to understanding
the true complexity of the hostilities and
political ambitions that Asia's two giants
harbour.
In the Great Game East: India, China and the
Struggle for Asia's Most Volatile Frontier,
Bertil Lintner - acknowledged as one of the
foremost experts on insurgencies in the
region - unpacks the layers and layers of
complex political intrigues and spy networks
that define the Great Game East. A must-
read for anyone who wishes to understand
the political future of a continent, or indeed
the world.
::
Bertil Lintner was a senior writer for the Far
Eastern Economic Review for more than
twenty years, covering Burma and related
issues. He now writes for Asia Times Online
and the Swedish daily Svenska Dagbladet.
Lintner has numerous books to his credit
and is a recognized expert on Burmese
issues as well as ethnic minorities,
insurgencies and narcotics in Southeast and
South Asia

A compelling and frank account of one of the
most extraordinary stories in recent literary
history: Salman Rushdie and the fatwa.
JOSEPH ANTON: A Memoir
Salman Rushdie
Publisher: Jonathan Cape
ISBN: 9780224093972
Price: 799.00
On February 14, 1989, Valentine’s Day,
Salman Rushdie was telephoned by a BBC
journalist and told that he had been
“sentenced to death” by the Ayatollah
Khomeini. For the first time he heard the
word fatwa. His crime? To have written a
novel called The Satanic Verses, which was
accused of being “against Islam, the Prophet
and the Quran.”
So begins the extraordinary story of how a
writer was forced underground, moving from
house to house, with the constant presence
of an armed police protection team. He was
asked to choose an alias that the police
could call him by. He thought of writers he
loved and combinations of their names; then
it came to him: Conrad and Chekhov—
Joseph Anton.
How do a writer and his family live with the
threat of murder for more than nine years?
How does he go on working? How does he
fall in and out of love? How does despair
shape his thoughts and actions, how and
why does he stumble, how does he learn to
fight back?
In this remarkable memoir Rushdie tells that
story for the first time; the story of one of
the crucial battles, in our time, for freedom
of speech. He talks about the sometimes
grim, sometimes comic realities of living with
armed policemen, and of the close bonds he
formed with his protectors; of his struggle
for support and understanding from
governments, intelligence chiefs, publishers,
journalists, and fellow writers; and of how
he regained his freedom.
It is a book of exceptional frankness and
honesty, compelling, provocative, moving,
and of vital importance. Because what
happened to Salman Rushdie was the first
act of a drama that is still unfolding
somewhere in the world every day.

THE LIBERALS
Hindol Sengupta
Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers India
ISBN: 9789350291436
Price: Rs. 350.00
1991. The year the Indian economy opened
up to the world and unleashed a billion
desires and dreams. But who are these
restless dreamers? This is a very private
story of a very public middle-class
consumption revolution.
From proselytizing American schools in
Calcutta to Page-3 parties in Delhi and
television studios in Bombay, The Liberals
brings to life unforgettable characters
spawned by the needs of the world's largest
democracy.
Communist Bob Dylans jam with murderous
villagers, girlfriends give lessons in
capitalism, TV stylists snarl over white shirts,
Amar Singh talks about love and Akshay
Kumar about what it takes to be the boy
next door. Through it all, Hindol Sengupta
lives to tell the tale of GDP rising.
This is the autobiography of liberalization,
entertaining and immensely relatable, and
an insider's account of finding one's place in
a newly liberalized India.
.................................................. ..........

'The Liberals tells us the story of an India in
transition from a very personal vantage

oyster € Hindol Sengupta's droll memoirs

An enthralling collection of motorcycle-rela
ted writing..
SONS OF THUNDER:
Writing from the Fast Lane, A Motorcycling
Anthology
Selected and Introduced by Neil Bradford
Publisher: Mainstream
ISBN: 9781780575247
Price: Rs. 499.00
Robert Pirsig, in his groundbreaking Zen and
the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, wrote
about the relationship of rider and machine,
the fact of 'seeing deeply into the nature of
things by direct experience'. T. E. Lawrence
described 'the lustfulness of moving swiftly',
the sensation of feeling 'the earth moulding
herself under me....heaving and tossing on
each side like a sea'.
Not all the contributors to this exhilaratingly
high-octane collection are quite so lyrical or
mystical. Hunter S. Thompson concludes his
review of the Ducati 900 Supersport with a
brutal comparison: 'A fool couldn't ride the
Vincent Black Shadow more than once, but a
fool can ride a Ducati 900 many times, and it
will always be a bloodcurdling kind of fun.
That is the Curse of Speed which has
plagued me all my life. I am a slave to it. On
my tombstone they will carve, It Never Got
Fast Enough For Me.'
Men don't have the monopoly on mufflers
or power-to-weight ratio. Melissa Holbrook
Pierson, Lois Pryce and Theresa Wallach
have full-throttle tales to tell. There are even
poems by Ted Hughes and Thom Gunn
about the pleasures and perils of riding this
awesome machine.
For the fanatic and even the armchair
traveller, Neil Bradford's collection of
motorcycle writing, Sons of Thunder, makes
the most persuasive case for the unique
excitement and emotional experience
offered by one of humankind's greatest
inventions.

THE CASE OF THE DEADLY BUTTER CHICKEN
Tarquin Hall
Publisher: Hutchinson
ISBN: 9780091937416
Price: Rs.499.00
Vish Puri is as fond of butter chicken as the
next Punjabi. And when there's plenty on
offer at the Delhi Durbar hotel where he's
attending an India Premier League cricket
match dinner, he's the first to tuck in. Irfan
Khan, father of Pakistani star cricketer
Kamran Khan, can't resist either. But the
creamy dish proves his undoing. After a few
mouthfuls, he collapses on the floor, dead.
Clearly this isn't a case of Delhi Belly.
But who amongst the Bollywood stars,
politicians, bureaucrats and industrialists
poisoned Khan is a mystery. And with the
capital's police chief proving as incompetent
as ever, it falls to Most Private Investigators
to find out the truth. Puri is soon able to link
Khan to a bald bookie called Full Moon and
all the clues point to the involvement of a
gambling syndicate that controls the illegal X
billion dollars betting industry.
The answers seem to lie in Surat, the
diamond cutting and polishing capital of the
world (where Puri's chief undercover
operative Tubelight meets his match) and
across the border in Pakistan, Puri's
nemesis, the one country where he has
sworn never to set foot. Or do they? A
certain determined, grey-haired lady with a
unique insight into the murder believes that
the portly detective is barking up 'a wrong
tree.'
Is Mummy-ji right? Is there more to the
murder than meets the eye? And why, to
make life even more complicated for Vish
Puri, has someone tried to steal the longest
moustache in the world - from right under
the nose of its owner? Literally.

How the digital turn and 9/11 have changed
motion picture history.
SFILM AFTER FILM: Or, What Became of 21st
Century Cinema?
J Hoberman
Publisher: Verso
ISBN: 9781844677511
Price: 16.99 / Rs. 1568.00
In this sly and thought-provoking volume, J.
Hoberman turns an erudite eye to the study
of twenty-first-century cinema and finds
that, only a dozen years into the new
millennium, the world of movies has already
experienced a revolutionary transformation.
The advent of new digital technology has
displaced the medium of photographic film
—and, perhaps, the reality on which it once
depended. With locations, sets and cameras
now optional, the history of motion pictures
has become the history of animation.
This sea change in filmmaking spanned the
2000 American presidential election and the
trauma of 9/11, events that reshaped world
politics and left an indelible imprint on the
emerging aesthetic of the new century’s
cinema. A rupture opened up in the
evolution of film, presaging, as Susan Sontag
forlornly predicted a few years earlier, the
death of cinephilia, or at least cinephilia as
we know it.
Witty and allusive, in the style of classic film
theorist/critics such as Andr Bazin and
Siegfried Kracauer, Film After Film expands
on a much-discussed era-defining Artforum
article by Hoberman before moving on to a
chronicle of the Bush years in cinema
(featuring reviews from Hoberman’s final
decade at the Village Voice).
The book concludes with considerations of
the twenty-one central movies of the twenty-
first century, which include works by Lars
von Trier and Jia Zhangke as well as the hi-
tech spectacles WALL-E and Avatar.

And the empty seat left by Barry on the

Book Summary of The Casual Vacancy

When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock.

Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty faade is a town at war.

Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils…Pagford is not what it first seems.

And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations?

Blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising, The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling’s first novel for adults.

DIGITAL COOL: Life in the Age of New Media
Pramod K. Nayar
Publisher: Orient BlackSwan
ISBN: 978-81-250-4730-8
Price: Rs. 545.00
You email your report, check the position of
your stocks, play your favourite Rahman, and
upload new patches for your favourite
simulation game-all using the same three-
inch-by-five device that fits into your palm.
You chat, share, play and blog, even check
for directions to the new Italian restaurant in
town online. Everyday life is now digital.
Digital Cool examines life in the age of New
Media. From Facebook to Internet dating,
tablets to Twitter, cyber avatars to Wikis-it
tells the story of how human lives today are
heavily mediated by ‘cool’ technologies, and
how the technologies themselves are
mediated by our ways of living, playing,
working.
‘Digital Cool’ is simultaneously about
individualisation, with its make-believe
detachment (‘Cool’), and the fierce
collectivism facilitated by New Media. There’s
the young woman waiting for the tube while
swishing through the bestseller she’s just
bought on her iPad, indifferent to her
surroundings; there is also the fury of the
mainly online Pink Chaddis campaign of
2009, the collaborative radical political
critique of kafila.org, or the arrival of Spring
in Tahrir, with its unforgettable images of
Google executive Wael Ghonim coordinating
revolution on Facebook, accessed on his
smartphone.
US Congressmen tweeted President Obama’s
first State of the Union address as he spoke,
the world was alerted to Andres Iniesta’s
World Cup-winning goal on Twitter, and the
incredible landing of US Airways Flight 1549
on the Hudson was first reported on the
microblogging site. Twitter is today the cool
way to update ‘followers’; YouTube is the
platform on which a participatory culture
and the sense of belonging to a community
play out.
Digital technology empowers, enthuses,
informs and mediates new forms of
community, activism and identity. Culture
jamming, participatory journalism and
commons knowledge are all components of
the activist new media, but also of popular
culture.

A compelling and frank account of one of the
most extraordinary stories in recent literary
history: Salman Rushdie and the fatwa.
JOSEPH ANTON: A Memoir
Salman Rushdie
Publisher: Jonathan Cape
ISBN: 9780224093972
Price: 799.00
On February 14, 1989, Valentine’s Day,
Salman Rushdie was telephoned by a BBC
journalist and told that he had been
“sentenced to death” by the Ayatollah
Khomeini. For the first time he heard the
word fatwa. His crime? To have written a
novel called The Satanic Verses, which was
accused of being “against Islam, the Prophet
and the Quran.”
So begins the extraordinary story of how a
writer was forced underground, moving from
house to house, with the constant presence
of an armed police protection team. He was
asked to choose an alias that the police
could call him by. He thought of writers he
loved and combinations of their names; then
it came to him: Conrad and Chekhov—
Joseph Anton.
How do a writer and his family live with the
threat of murder for more than nine years?
How does he go on working? How does he
fall in and out of love? How does despair
shape his thoughts and actions, how and
why does he stumble, how does he learn to
fight back?
In this remarkable memoir Rushdie tells that
story for the first time; the story of one of
the crucial battles, in our time, for freedom
of speech. He talks about the sometimes
grim, sometimes comic realities of living with
armed policemen, and of the close bonds he
formed with his protectors; of his struggle
for support and understanding from
governments, intelligence chiefs, publishers,
journalists, and fellow writers; and of how
he regained his freedom.
It is a book of exceptional frankness and
honesty, compelling, provocative, moving,
and of vital importance. Because what
happened to Salman Rushdie was the first
act of a drama that is still unfolding
somewhere in the world every day.

THE USE AND ABUSE OF LITERATURE
Marjorie Garber
Publisher: Anchor Books
ISBN: 9780307277121
Price: Rs. 499.00
In this deep and engaging meditation on the
usefulness and uselessness of reading in the
digital age, Harvard English professor
Marjorie Garber aims to reclaim “literature”
from the periphery of our personal,
educational, and professional lives and
restore it to the center, as a radical way of
thinking.
But what is literature anyway, how has it
been understood over time, and what is its
relevance for us today? Who gets to decide
what the word means? Why has literature
been on the defensive since Plato? Does it
have any use at all, other than serving as
bourgeois or aristocratic accoutrements
attesting to one’s worldly sophistication and
refinement of spirit? What are the
boundaries that separate it from its
“commercial” instance and from other more
mundane kinds of writing? Is it, as most of
us assume, good to read, much less study-
and what would that mean?
.................................................. ..........
......................
“An immensely readable yet vastly erudite
reflection on the history of literary writing,
literary criticism and the social value of
both.” -The San Francisco Chronicle
“Erudite and stimulating. . . . Garber is
warmly clarifying and acerbically entertaining
as she convincingly defends the academic
study of literature as an essential facet of
culture. . . . A welcome, wise, and edifying
call back to literature itself rather than the
paper versus digital debate.” -Booklist
“Garber claims for literature a sort of stem
cell-like power to generate fresh and new
imaginative experiences in those who read
it” -Associated Press
“Garber seems to have read everything, and
this book offers, in addition to seductive
argument, a complete anthology of
quotations and engagements with poets,
playwrights, novelists, biographers and
literary theorists. Her book is a testament
not simply to Great Books but also to a great
conversation between ourselves and the past
and among ourselves as present readers.
Why read? In the end, the answer to the
question is as complex and compelling as
‘why live?’” -San Francisco Chronicle
“If anyone is qualified to rescue literature
from the threat of irrelevancy it’s Garber. . . .
She simply knows everything there is to know
about the history and practice of literature
and criticism.” -Laura Kipnis, Wilson
Quarterly Review
“A leisurely and learned ramble through
dozens, if not hundreds, of texts and
topics.” -Boston Globe
“Garber argues convincingly . . . that
literature is ‘a status rather than a quality.’
She provides elegant summaries of various
reading methods that have gone in and out
of academic fashion over the years, among
them New Critical textual analysis,
historicism and deconstruction, and she is
sympathetic to each to varying degrees. Her
final judgment . . . is that ‘it is how the story
means, rather than what it means, that is
the literary question.’ Garber is a sensitive
guide to this how, explicating metaphor,
allusion, self- reflection and other ways in
which literary works go about meaning what
they mean. Her own range of reference is
astonishingly wide. . . . She provides an
implicit proof of a point made explicitly in
the book, that there need be no conflict
between loving literature passionately and
studying it academically.” -The New York
Times Book Review
“[Garber] succeeds brilliantly at
demonstrating that true literary reading is
the demanding task of asking questions, not
of finding rules or answers. . . . Garber’s
erudition serves to educate general readers
willing to embark on a moderately difficult
trek with an authoritative guide.” -Publishers
Weekly, starred review
“Chockablock with examples and in-depth
analysis, this can be savored by academics
and lay readers alike.” -Kirkus Reviews

CELL8
Roslund & Hellstrom
Publisher: Quercus
ISBN: 9781849161497
Price: Rs. 325.00
A convicted murderer dies awaiting
execution on Ohio's death row. Six years
later, the same man walks into a Stockholm
police station. He's defeated death. He's
played the unplayable system. And now
Detective Superintendent Ewert Grens must
discover how.
A cheap crooner by the name of John
Schwarz earns his keep on a ferry between
Sweden and Finland, singing evergreens for
drunken passengers. One night, he loses his
temper with a man harassing women in the
crowd, beating him unconscious. As drunken
brawls are commonplace on the Baltic
cruising ferries, no one raises an eyebrow.
No one, that is, but Detective
Superintendent Ewert Grens. Concerned by
the details of the case report, Grens can't
help but think someone capable of such
violence must have a history of it.
As a precaution, he orders Schwarz arrested:
one that is seemingly justified when Schwarz
provides such resistance that he has to be
sedated. Suspicion turns to shock when
Grens discovers that John Schwarz does not
exist. When he learns that the man in his
custody is in fact John Meyer Frey - an
American citizen from Marcusville, Ohio - he
is even more astonished. John Meyer Frey
cannot be sitting in front of him: John Meyer
Frey died on Death Row six years earlier.
This mystery will initiate the most remarkable
criminal investigation of Ewert Grens's
career, the reverberations of which will
reach the highest tier of international
politics, and blow the worldwide debate on
the death penalty wide open.

TIME WARPED: Unlocking the Mysteries of
Time Perception
Claudia Hammond
Publisher: Canongate Books
ISBN: 9781847677907
Price: Rs. 650.00
Have you ever tried to spend a day without
looking at a clock or checking your watch?
It's almost impossible. Time rules our lives,
but how much do we understand about it?
And is it possible to retrain our brains and
improve our relationship with it?
Drawing on the latest research from the
fields of psychology, neuroscience and
biology, and using original research on the
way memory shapes our understanding of
time, the acclaimed writer and broadcaster
Claudia Hammond delves into the mysteries
of time perception.
Along the way, Claudia introduces us to an
extraordinary array of characters willing to
go to great lengths in the interests of
research, such as the French speleologist
Michel, who spends two months in an ice
cave in complete darkness. We meet one
group of volunteers who steer themselves
towards the edge of a stairwell, blindfolded,
and another who are strapped into a
harness and dropped off the edge of tower
block.
Time Warped shows us how to manage our
time more efficiently, speed time up and
slow it down at will, plan for the future with
more accuracy and, ultimately, use the
warping of time to our own advantage.

ISBN: 9788125049357
Price: Rs. 695.00
This volume situates the phenomenon of
migration from Kerala to the Gulf in its
economic and social contexts. It is based on
a comparative study made by the authors of
migration surveys carried out in 1998, 2003
and 2008. It looks at the changes migration
has brought about in the lives of the families
left behind by the migrant.
It also carries a two-part epilogue. The first
analyses panel data from the 1998 and 2008
surveys.The second evaluates the results

THE GREEN ROOM
Wendell Rodricks
Publisher: Rain Tree
ISBN: 9788129120229
Price: Rs. 595.00
Epicurean, travel addict, voracious reader,
art appreciator, astonishingly talented
designer-Wendell Rodricks is a man who
wears many hats. From growing up in a
‘glorified Bombay chawl’ crowded with
eccentrics, to building homes in Muscat,
Istanbul and the French Riviera; from
quenching childhood hunger pangs with
water, to feasting on the canard au sang at
La Tour D’Argent in Paris; from falling in
love with the man with whom he would sign
a civil union, to putting his ancestral land of
Goa firmly on the global fashion map; from
being a novice in the hospitality industry, to
exhibiting at Pret-a-Porter Salon de Paris
and IGEDO, Dusseldorf; from designing
clothes for his family, to dressing style icons
such as Catherine Deneuve, Meg Ryan, Lisa
Ray and Freida Pinto Wendell’s life has been
an extraordinarily rich and exciting one.
Peppered with wry observations and
startling insights, The Green Room is not just
the story of one man but also of the
evolution of the Indian fashion industry over
twenty-five years. It is both a deeply
personal journey and a window into the
enchanting yet fickle world of the rich and
the famous, the beautiful and the neurotic,
the gossips and the bores.
Candid, irreverent and unfailingly
entertaining, this is a memoir of the man
who gave India minimalism, resort wear and
eco-friendly clothing long before these
words became fashionable. It is a sparkling
piece of writing that tells the story of a
fascinating life lived with unusual courage
and flair.
: :
Wendell Rodricks spent his childhood in
Bombay and started his working life in
Muscat. He then moved to Los Angeles and
Paris to study fashion design and couture.
He returned to India in 1988 and quickly
gained repute as a designer, working with
renowned brands such as Garden Vareli,
Lakme and De Beers. He established his own
label in 1990 and moved base in 1993 to
Colvale, Goa.
A pioneer in the world of Indian fashion,
Wendell is considered one of the most
influential designers in the country and has
received international acclaim for his work.
Wendell also writes about fashion and
lectures on world costume history. His book
on the history of Goan costume, Moda Goa,
was published in 2012. He is passionate
about art, music, literature, food, travel and
Goa’s environment.
Tells the story of how the sex, drugs and
rock n roll generation changed the world for
ever.

WILDINGS
Nilanjana Roy
Publisher: Aleph Book Company
ISBN: 9788192328096
Price: Rs. 595.00
Nilanjana Roy’s dazzlingly original The
Wildings zeroes in on the mysterious and
danger-filled lives of cats in a Delhi
neighbourhood. The narrative, like the
domain it is set in, is strikingly unique, if you
discount Indian-American writer Rajesh
Parameswaran’s The Infamous Bengal Ming,
about a lovesick tiger who mauls his
zookeeper out of misplaced affection.
But that was a short story. The Wildings is a
full-fledged novel about both affection and
animosity, neither of which is misplaced. It
makes for compelling reading. Roy draws the
reader quickly and effortlessly into the world
of the feline creatures that live and wage a
daily battle for survival in and around the
alleyways and ruins of Nizamuddin. Prabha
Mallya’s evocative black-and-white
illustrations provide visual spine to the
readable prose about the secret life of cats.
The novel opens with a reference to Mara,
an orange kitten that creates quite a stir in
the wilds around the canal and the dargah.
The loveable little ball of fur that has been
adopted by a human household is no
ordinary cat she is a Sender, blessed with
powers of communication that go beyond
mere “linking”, a telepathic web that enables
cats to stay in touch with each other no
matter how far they might stray from the
clan.
We are told: The cats of Nizamuddin were
used to linking across long distances, as all
animals in the wild did. Mews reached only
so far; scents and whisker transmissions
formed an invisible, strong web around their
clan and dargah cats. But linking allowed
them only to listen to each other. A true
sending, where the Sender’s fur seemed to
brush by the listener, its words and scents
touching her listener’s whiskers, was rare.
From time to time, strangers might breach
the web, accidentally linking but it had been
years since the Nizamuddin clan had a
Sender in their midst, or had a sending as
strong as this.
The context is thus set for the chain of
events that unfold in this remarkable
parable about growing up, staying on one’s
feet and discovering the true thrills of being
a cat. Seen from a few inches off the
ground, from under parked cars and from
rooftops all from the POV of the cats the
universe that Roy conjures up is magical, full
of surprises and utterly exhilarating. The
novel does have unnamed humans
collectively called Bigfeet stomping about
quite freely around here, but the core
narrative space belongs squarely to the
animals.
The wildings are stray cats of the area. In a
Shuttered House nearby is a bunch of feral
felines, bloodthirsty and always spoiling for
a bloody brawl. Among others, the
Nizamuddin clan has Hulo, Beraal, Miao and
Katar, besides Southpaw, the kitten for
whom staying out of trouble is life’s biggest
challenge.
Some of the most gripping moments in The
Wildings are provided by the Southpaw’s
misadventures he is targeted by a cheel and
a dog in quick succession. And then, in the
Shuttered House, he finds himself in danger
of being killed by the ferals, led by the
ruthless white cat Datura.
The novel proffers stories of many other
animals Ozzy the tiger, Tantara the langur
that is friends with Rudra the tiger cub, Kirri
the mongoose, to name only a few but does
not follow them through as the focus shifts
to the central plot-line.
The hostility between the wildings and the
feral cats forms the crux of the novel.
Beyond these skirmishes, the most intriguing
passages are those that deal with Mara. She
is looked upon with a great deal of suspicion
by some members of the clan, which has
little respect for “inside cats”, but she finds
a protective mentor in Beraal and a friend in
Southpaw.
Life is a constant learning curve for these
animals. When Southpaw is cornered by the
feral cats, every scary second is a process of
grasping the tricks of survival. Southpaw
tried to remember what Katar had told him
about using his whiskers to sense predators,
but though he could raise his black whiskers
up just as the tomcat had, he felt nothing in
the air. He hadn’t learnt the finer points of
sensing, and the kitten hoped his unseen
enemies wouldn’t be able to guess how
vulnerable he was.
Later, Southpaw watches Mara make her first
kill a large Atlas moth and then agonise over
the act: “Mara put her head down on the
floor and mewed sadly. She nudged the
moth once with her mouth, willing it to
come back to life. ‘I’M A BAD KITTEN, I
DIDN’T MEAN TO KILL YOU MOTH. I’M SO
SAD THAT I DID,’ she said forlornly. Living by
her instincts, it is apparent, does not come
easy to a house cat. But Southpaw is
instantly impressed by “the speed with which
(Mara) made her kill.
If a debut novel can be equated with a cat’s
first kill, The Wildings is as perfect a strike as
Mara’s. Gripping, humorous and truly
immersive, it is well worth a sequel.
::
Nilanjana Roy spent most of her adult life
writing about humans before realizing that
animals were much more fun; The Wildings
is her first novel. Her column on books and
reading for the Business Standard has run
for over 15 years; she also writes for the
International Herald Tribune on gender. Her
fiction and journalism have appeared in
several journals and anthologies, including
Caravan, Civil Lines 6, Guernica, the New
York Times India blog, Outlook and Biblio.
Some of her stories for children have been
published in Scholastics Spooky Stories, &
Science Fiction Stories and BeWitched. She is
the editor of A Matter of Taste: The Penguin
Book of Indian Food Writing. At one time,
she used to blog as Hurree Babu at
Kitabkhana, Indias first litblog; and some of
her writing is available at Akhond of Swat
(Akhond of Swat (http://akhondofswat.blogspot.com/) ).
Nilanjana Roy lives in Delhi with two cats
and her husband, and on Twitter at

വര - വരി - വി.എസ്


ഡി.സി ബുക്സ്

എ.വി. ഷെറിന്*

രാഷ്ട്രീയ സ്വാതന്ത്ര്യം ഇന്ത്യയില്* യാഥാര്ഥ്യാമായിത്തീരുന്നത് 1947ല്* ആണെങ്കിലും അതിനും വര്ഷങ്ങള്ക്കു മുമ്പേ
ഇന്ത്യന്* കാര്ട്ടൂണ്* രംഗം പൂര്ണടവളര്ച്ച കൈവരിച്ചിട്ടുണ്ട്. അതില്* മലയാളി കാര്ട്ടൂണിസ്റ്റുകളുടെ സംഭാവന
എടുത്തുപറയേണ്ടതാണ്. പത്രപ്രവര്ത്തനംതന്നെ ഒരു കരിയറാകാന്* ബുദ്ധിമുട്ടുള്ള കാലത്ത് പൊളിറ്റിക്കല്*
കാര്ട്ടൂണ്* വര ഒരു സമ്പൂര്ണ തൊഴിലായി സ്വീകരിക്കാനുള്ള ആര്ജവം കേരളത്തില്നിളന്ന് ദല്ഹിയിലേക്കും
ബോംബെയിലേക്കും മദ്രാസിലേക്കും ചേക്കേറിയ കാര്ട്ടൂ ണിസ്റ്റുകള്* കാണിച്ചിട്ടുണ്ട്. ആ തലമുറയിലെ
പ്രമുഖനായിരുന്ന കെ.പി.എസ്. കുട്ടി എന്ന കുട്ടി ഒരിക്കല്* പറഞ്ഞത് കേരളത്തില്* കാര്ട്ടൂ ണിസ്റ്റുകളുടെ
പ്രതിശീര്ഷക ഉല്പാദനം അല്പം കൂടുതലാണ് എന്നാണ്. നര്മവും പരിഹാസവും പരമ്പരാഗതമായിത്തന്നെ
സമ്പൂര്ണ് കലാരൂപങ്ങളായി വളര്ന്ന ഒരു പ്രദേശം എന്ന നിലക്ക് കേരളത്തില്* കാര്ട്ടൂ ണിസ്റ്റുകള്*
കൂടുതലുണ്ടാകുന്നു എന്നതില്* അതിശയോക്തിയില്ല.

മേല്* സൂചിപ്പിച്ച കുട്ടി ഏതാണ്ട് അര നൂറ്റാണ്ടുകാലം കാര്ട്ടൂണ്* വരച്ച വ്യക്തിയാണ്. അദ്ദേഹത്തിന്റന
ആത്മകഥയുടെ പേര് ചിരിയുടെ വര്ഷങ്ങള്* എന്നാണ്. തൊഴിലിന്റ് മര്മ പ്രവൃത്തി ജീവിതത്തിന്റത
അടയാളമുദ്രയാക്കി സ്വീകരിക്കുന്ന ഒരു പരിണാമ യുക്തി ഈ പേരിനുണ്ട്. ചിരിയില്ലാതെ കാര്ട്ടൂണ്* ഉണ്ടോ?
ഇല്ല. ചിന്തപോലെത്തന്നെ പ്രധാനമാണ് കാര്ട്ടൂണിലെ ചിരി. ചിരിയും ചിന്തയും വരയില്* സന്നിവേശിപ്പിക്കുമ്പോഴാണ്
മികച്ച കാര്ട്ടൂകണുകളുണ്ടാവുന്നത് എന്ന് വ്യക്തമാക്കുന്നതാണ് വേറിട്ട കാര്ട്ടൂണുകളെല്ലാം.

സുധീര്നാഥ് എഡിറ്റ് ചെയ്ത്, ഡി.സി ബുക്സ് പ്രസിദ്ധീകരിച്ച പുസ്തകമാണ് വര-വരി-വി.എസ്.
ഏതാണ്ട് 100ലധികം പേജുകളില്* കേരള രാഷ്ട്രീയത്തിലെ ഏറ്റവും തലമുതിര്ന്ന നേതാവായ
വി.എസ്. അച്യുതാനന്ദനെ വ്യത്യസ്ത കാര്ട്ടൂ ണിസ്റ്റുകള്* വരച്ചതിന്റര സമാഹാരമാണിത്.

1923ല്* ജനിച്ച വി.എസ് 20 വയസ്സ് തികയും മുമ്പേ രാഷ്ട്രീയ പ്രവര്ത്തനം തുടങ്ങിയ ആളാണ്.
കടുത്ത ജീവിത സാഹചര്യങ്ങള്* അദ്ദേഹത്തെ നന്നേ ചെറുപ്പത്തിലേ തൊഴില്ശാലയിലേക്കയച്ചെങ്കിലും
നാടിനുവേണ്ടി പ്രവര്ത്തിളക്കാനുള്ള പി. കൃഷ്ണപിള്ളയുടെ ഉപദേശം അദ്ദേഹം സ്വീകരിക്കുകയായിരുന്നു.
ആദ്യകമ്യൂണിസ്റ്റ് മന്ത്രിസഭ അധികാരത്തില്* വരുമ്പോള്* സി.പി.ഐ സംസ്ഥാന സെക്രട്ടേറിയറ്റ് അംഗമാണ് വി.എസ്.
അന്നേ നേതാവാണെന്നര്ഥം. പിന്നീട് എം.എല്*.എ ആയി. എണ്ണമറ്റ സമരങ്ങള്ക്ക് നേതൃത്വം നല്കിം. ജയിലിലടക്കപ്പെട്ടു.
1964ല്* സി.പി.ഐ ദേശീയ കൗണ്സിലില്നിന്ന് ഇറങ്ങിപ്പോന്ന് മറ്റ് പ്രമുഖര്ക്കൊപ്പം സി.പി.എം രൂപവത്കരിച്ചു.
വര്ഷേങ്ങളോളം ആ പാര്ട്ടി യുടെ സംസ്ഥാന സെക്രട്ടറിയും പോളിറ്റ് ബ്യൂറോ അംഗവുമായി.

ഇക്കാലയളവിലൊന്നും കിട്ടാത്ത ഒരു രാഷ്ട്രീയ ഇമേജ് ആണ് വി.എസിന് പിന്നീട് കിട്ടുന്നത്. 90കളുടെ
അവസാനത്തോടെ കേരളത്തില്* ഒരു വി.എസ് ഫാക്ടര്* തന്നെ രൂപപ്പെട്ടു എന്നു പറയാനാകും. അന്നുമുതലാണ്
യഥാര്ഥ്ത്തില്* വി.എസ് കാര്ട്ടൂ ണിസ്റ്റുകളുടെ പ്രിയങ്കരനാവുന്നത്.

പിണറായി വിജയനാണ് ഈ പുസ്തകത്തിന്*െറ അവതാരിക എഴുതിയത്. പിണറായി-വി.എസ് ഏറ്റുമുട്ടലുകള്* പരസ്യമായപ്പോള്പോലും
പിണറായി പൊതുസമൂഹത്തിനുമുന്നില്* വി.എസിനെക്കുറിച്ച് സംസാരിക്കാന്* സ്വീകരിച്ച ഒരു ജെന്റിളല്മാന്* ശൈലിയുണ്ട്.
ആ ശൈലിതന്നെയാണ് ഈ അവതാരികയും പ്രകടമാക്കുന്നത്.

കാര്ട്ടൂണുകള്ക്കൊപ്പം ഉമ്മന്ചാണ്ടി, എം.എ. ബേബി മുതല്* വി.ടി. ബല്റാം എം.എല്*.എയുടെ വരെ കുറിപ്പുകളും
ചെമ്മനം ചാക്കോയുടെ കവിതയും പുസ്തകത്തിലുണ്ട്. പലതും ആത്മാംശമുള്ള കുറിപ്പുകള്*. ഇത് കാര്ട്ടൂണ്* കാഴ്ചക്ക്
കൃത്യമായ ഇടവേളകള്* നല്കാകന്* സഹായിക്കുന്നു. ഒപ്പം, ഡി. വിജയമോഹന്ററ വി.എസും അദ്ദേഹത്തിന്*െറ ഭാഷയും
എന്ന ചിന്തോദീപ്തമായ ലേഖനവുമുണ്ട്.

പുസ്തകത്തില്* ഗോപീകൃഷ്ണന്* മുതല്* വേണുവരെയുള്ള പ്രമുഖരുടെയും വലിയ പേരില്ലാത്ത ഒട്ടുമിക്ക കാര്ട്ടൂണിസ്റ്റുകളുടെയും
സൃഷ്ടികള്* ഉള്പ്പെടുത്തിയിട്ടുണ്ട്. പലതും ഒരു ദിവസത്തെ മുഴുവന്* ചിരിക്ക് വകനല്കും. സുജിത്തിന്റള എന്*െറ ആരോഗ്യരഹസ്യം യോഗ
എന്ന കാര്ട്ടൂ ണ്* അത്തരത്തിലൊന്നാണ്. പരസ്യശാസന എന്നെഴുതിയ കടലാസുമായി (നഗ്നരായി) വരുന്ന പിണറായിയോടും കാരാട്ടിനോടും
രാമനോ തോര്ത്തില്ല... ലക്ഷ്മണനോ മുണ്ടില്ലാ... എന്ന് പാടുന്ന വി.എസിനെ വരച്ച ഗോപീകൃഷ്ണന്റാ കാര്ട്ടൂ ണ്*, വരവഴക്കംകൊണ്ട്
ഉന്നത നിലവാരം പുലര്ത്തുന്ന പി.വി. കൃഷ്ണന്റ് കാര്ട്ടൂവണുകള്*, വി.ആര്*. രാഗേഷിന്റ് ഒഞ്ചിയം പശ്ചാത്തലത്തിലുള്ള വര്ക്കുകള്
തുടങ്ങിയവ ശ്രദ്ധേയമാണ്.

പുസ്തകത്തിന്*െറ ഒടുക്കം വി.എസിനെ വരക്കാന്* പഠിക്കാം എന്ന തലക്കെട്ടില്* പി.വി. കൃഷ്ണന്* വി.എസിനെ കാര്ട്ടൂ ണിന് അനുസരിച്ച്
വരക്കേണ്ടതെങ്ങനെ എന്ന് ഘട്ടംഘട്ടമായി വിവരിക്കുന്നത് ഈ മേഖലയിലെ വിദ്യാര്ഥി്കള്ക്ക് ഉപകാരപ്പെടും. താന്* ഏറ്റവും ഭയക്കുന്നത്
ഐഡിയവിളിച്ചുപറയുന്നവരെയാണെന്ന് കാര്ട്ടൂണിസ്റ്റ് ഗോപീകൃഷ്ണന്* ഒരു അഭിമുഖത്തില്* വ്യക്തമാക്കിയിട്ടുണ്ട്. കാര്ട്ടൂ ണിസ്റ്റുകളെ
സംബന്ധിച്ച് ഇതൊരു പ്രതിസന്ധിതന്നെയാണ്. മലയാളത്തിലെ ഒട്ടുമിക്ക കാര്ട്ടൂ ണിസ്റ്റുകളും എഡിറ്റോറിയല്* ജീവനക്കാരുടെ ഐഡിയകള്കൊണ്ട്
പൊറുതിമുട്ടിയ അവസ്ഥയിലാണെന്നതാണ് വാസ്തവം. അതത് ദിവസത്തെ രാഷ്ട്രീയ വാര്ത്തടക്ക് ചിത്രംചമക്കുന്ന ഏര്പ്പാിടായി കാര്ട്ടൂ ണ്*
മാറാനുള്ള ഒരു കാരണവും ഇതുതന്നെയാണ്. കാര്ട്ടൂ ണിന്റ് സ്വതന്ത്രാസ്തിത്വത്തെ അംഗീകരിക്കാനുള്ള മനസ്സ് പത്രസ്ഥാപനങ്ങള്ക്കുണ്ടായില്ലെങ്കില്*
എഡിറ്റോറിയല്* വിഭാഗത്തിന്*െറ ധൃതരാഷ്ട്രാലിംഗനത്തില്* കാര്ട്ടൂ ണിസ്റ്റുകള്* തരിപ്പണമായിത്തീരാനാണ് സാധ്യത.

ഈ പരിമിതിയെ അതിജീവിച്ചവരാണ് ഇതിഹാസകാരന്മാരായിത്തീര്ന്ന് നമ്മുടെ കാര്ട്ടൂ ണിസ്റ്റുകള്*. അബു എബ്രഹാമിന്*െറ അടിയന്തരാവസ്ഥ
കാര്ട്ടൂ ണുകളുടെയോ ശങ്കറിന്റി നെഹ്റു കാര്ട്ടൂയണുകളുടെയോ ചരിത്രപരതയും ചൂടും ചോര്ന്നു പോകാത്തതെന്തുകൊണ്ട് എന്ന് നമ്മുടെ
കാര്ട്ടൂ ണിസ്റ്റുകള്* ചിന്തിക്കണം. അതോടൊപ്പം മനുഷ്യരാശിയെ എക്കാലവും പിടിച്ചുലച്ച പ്രശ്നങ്ങളായ യുദ്ധം, അതിര്ത്തി തര്ക്കം , പലായനം
തുടങ്ങിയ വിഷയങ്ങളില്* വരകൊണ്ട് മനസ്സിളക്കുന്ന രചനകള്* നടത്താനും എന്തുകൊണ്ട് മലയാളത്തിലെ കാര്ട്ടൂ ണിസ്റ്റുകള്ക്കാവുന്നില്ല എന്ന്
ചിന്ത ഉയരുകയും വേണം. ചാപ്ളിന്* സിനിമകളുടെ കോമഡി ഗൗരവചിന്തകളുയര്ത്തിയ സിനിമകളേക്കാള്* ഗൗരവകരമായിത്തീര്ന്ന്ത് അത്
തീവ്രവ്യഥകളുടെ ഓര്മ് പുതുക്കലുകളായതുകൊണ്ടാണ്. ഹാസ്യം, സ്വതന്ത്രാസ്തിത്വമുള്ള ഒരു രംഗമല്ല. അത് രാഷ്ട്രീയേതരവുമല്ല. കേവല
ഹാസ്യത്തിന്*െറ അല്പാമയുസ്സില്നിണന്ന് കാര്ട്ടൂ്ണിനെ ഇരുതല മൂര്ച്ചതയുള്ള ഖഡ്ഗമാക്കി മാറ്റണമെങ്കില്* ഈയൊരു രാഷ്ട്രീയബോധം
നമ്മുടെ കാര്ട്ടൂണിസ്റ്റുകള്* പ്രകടിപ്പിക്കേണ്ടിവരും. വരയുടെ അല്പായുസ്സിന്റി പരിമിതി ബോധ്യപ്പെടാന്* കാര്ട്ടൂ ണിസ്റ്റുകള്ക്ക്
കൊണ്ടുനടക്കാവുന്ന കൈപ്പുസ്തകം കൂടിയാണ് വര-വരി-വി.എസ്

After its publication, The Immortals of Meluha received mostly positive response from contemporary critics for its concept but the prose received mixed reviews. Pradip Bhattacharya from The Statesman (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Statesman) felt that the "plot skips along at a brisk pace, the characters are well etched and the readers attention is not allowed to flag. It will be interesting to see how the trilogy progresses. One cannot but admire the creative drive that impels a finance professional to embark on such an ambitious odyssey on uncharted seas."[27] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Immortals_of_Meluha#cite_note-27) Another review by Gaurav Vasudev from the same newspaper wrote that "the book is a gripping mythological story written in modern style."[28] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Immortals_of_Meluha#cite_note-state-28) Devdutt Pattanaik from The Tribune (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Tribune) commented that "the writer takes us on a sinister journey with the characters, who frequently sound as if they are one of us only."[29] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Immortals_of_Meluha#cite_note-29) Society magazine complimented Tripathi's writing by saying, "Reading this beautifully written creation is like plunging into the icy and venerable waters of the Manasarovar Lake (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Manasarovar). One can actually sense the beats of Shiva's dumru (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Damaru) and fumes of intoxicating chillum (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chillum_%28pipe%29). Simply unputdownable."[30] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Immortals_of_Meluha#cite_note-30) Nandita Sengupta from The Times of India (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Times_of_India) felt that "while the author spins a tale of adventure, it could have been a slightly snappier, tighter read. Some crunching of thoughts that tended to overlap and repeat would be welcome in the next two books." However, Sengupta was most impressed by the author's crafting of Shiva as a "rough-hewn, hot-headed, a great dancer, smitten by Sati (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dakshayani)... Shiva's our definition of a hero, ready to fight for a good cause anytime."[31] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Immortals_of_Meluha#cite_note-31)
Lisa Mahapatra from 'The New Indian Express (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_New_Indian_Express) was impressed with the story and Tripathi's writing and praised "the interactions between Shiva and Sati, [which were] intriguing. Age-old thoughts and philosophies were delivered in a very modern context, which I thought made for an interesting juxtaposition."
