Language: English . Brand New Book. Outside the Lettered City traces how middle-class Indians responded to the rise of the cinema as a popular form of mass entertainment in early 20th century India, focusing on their preoccupation with the mass public made visible by the cinema and with the cinema s role as a public sphere and a mass medium of modernity. It draws on archival research to uncover aspirations and anxieties about the new medium, which opened up tantalizing possibilities for nationalist mobilization on the one hand, and troubling challenges to the cultural authority of Indian elites on the other. Using case-studies drawn from the film cultures of Bombay and Kolkata, it demonstrates how discourses about the cinematic public dovetailed into discourses about a national public, giving rise to considerable excitement about cinema s potential to democratize the public sphere beyond the limits of print-literate culture, as well as to deepening anxieties about cultural degeneration. The case-studies also reveal that early twentieth century discourses about the cinema contain traces of a formative tension in Indian public culture, between visions of a deliberative public and spectres of the unruly masses.

The Bhagavad GitaThe Bhagavad Gita
The Bhagavad Gita Song of the Lord is considered the most influential of all the Hindu scriptures and is one of the greatest spiritual classics of the world Comprised of eighteen chapters taken from the great Sanskrit epic Mahabharata the Gita presents a conversation that takes place on a battlefield just as two groups of relatives are about to wage war against one another Facing the forces of greed anger and hatred the warrior-prince Arjuna loses heart and refuses to fight his own kin His friend and charioteer Lord Krishna who represents the Divine within tells him Your very nature will drive you to fight In the ensuing dialogue Krishna teaches Arjuna and all of us how we can face bravely the unavoidable challenges and conflicts of life-and win the greatest of all battles against the tumultuous emotions within our own hearts Eknath Easwarans eloquent translation and Diana Morrisons chapter introductions which summarize major religious concepts make this edition especially accessible for modern readers of any religion

Be Here NowBe Here Now
NAFrom Amazon:It's easy to dismiss Be Here Now as the relic of a whacked-out '60s acid tripper. Paging through the center section of the book, with its inch-high print and psychedelic drawings, you come across lines like: Magic Theatre For madmen only price of admission your mind Then you turn to the first page of the book, and you are suddenly sucked into the story of a Harvard psychiatrist who has reached the pinnacle of success, discovers the mind-expanding powers of acid, and ends up trooping through India with a 23-year-old holy man from Laguna Beach, California. In the story, you see all the trappings of your own life and begin to wonder if India might hold the answers after all. Before booking your ticket, turn to the last section of the Be Here Now, "Cookbook for a Sacred Life." Ram Dass saves you the trouble by proffering a sober introduction to the basics of Hindu religion. Although he still can't resist CAPITAL LETTERS, he has done his homework, presenting a whole range of concepts and practices having to do with yoga postures, meditation, renunciation, dying, and sexual energy. So, for the most part, Be Here Now stands the test of time, and if you can entertain the center section in a retro kind of a spirit, it might be just what you're looking for: "The opposite of craving is saying, baby, this is the way it is, yeah, OK, here and now, this is it. I ACCEPT THE HERE & NOW FULLY." --Brian Bruya
