    River of flesh and other stories brings together twenty-one stories about trafficked and prostituted women by some of India's most celebrated writers - Amrita Pritam, Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay, Indira Goswami, Ismat Chughtai, J. P. Das, Kamala Das, Kamleshwar, Krishan Chander, Munshi Premchand, Nabendu Ghosh, Qurratulain Hyder, Saadat Hasan Manto and Siddique Alam, among others. Jugnu, in Kamleshwar�s 'River of Flesh' ('Maas ka Darya') - stares at a lifetime of servitude as age and disease take hold, Ismat Chughtai creates the unforgettable character of Lajo in 'The Housewife', a carefree young woman who must conform to society's idea of decency, or risk being branded a whore, in 'Heeng-Kochuri', by Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay, a boy growing up near a red-light area discovers the adult world of patrons, connoisseurs and customers - as well as savouries offered to young boys as bribe, and in Manisha Kulshrestha's 'Kalindi', a son looks in through a window and his life falls to pieces around him. An unprecedented anthology - for its subject, as well as for the range of authors and translators who are part of it - River of Flesh and Other Stories offers a harsh indictment of this practice of human slavery, too often justified - and occasionally glorified - as the 'world's oldest profession'." About the Author Ruchira Gupta is a writer, feminist campaigner, professor at New York University and founder of the anti-sex-trafficking organization, Apne Aap Women Worldwide. She won the Clinton Global Citizen award in 2009, the Sera Bangali Award in 2012 and an Emmy for outstanding investigative journalism in 1996.

    A sharp insider's account of the many political and economic decisions that shaped the future of modern India The Turbulent Years opens in the 1980s. Sanjay Gandhi is dead under unexpected, tragic circumstances, not many years later, Indira Gandhi is assassinated, Rajiv Gandhi, 'the reluctant politician', abruptly becomes India's Prime Minister. Pranab Mukherjee was witness to (and, sometimes, a participant in) the momentous events of the 1980s and the 1990s, a period that was indisputably the most turbulent in India's post- Independence history. An insider, he sheds new light on every major political occurrence of the time - from Rajiv Gandhi's ascendance as India's Prime Minister to the emergence of P. V. Narasimha Rao as a leader of the nation, from Operation Blue Star to the Babri Masjid fiasco. Equally, Mukherjee is candid about each of the professional crises that marked this period of his career - the rumours that he wanted to elbow aside Rajiv Gandhi for the top post, the possible reasons for his ouster from Rajiv's Cabinet and later the party and the allegation that he aided and abetted the Left by not imposing President's rule in West Bengal and Tripura in the late 1980s. The second volume of Mukherjee's autobiography is not only an honest account of his years in power (And in the wilderness), but also a cogent analysis of the political and social turning points of a key period in the evolution of modern India. Features: Candidly written, this book is an insightful peek into the political as well as personal lives of some of the most celebrated leaders of India, like Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi and P.V. Narasimha Rao Presents a revealing picture of how a democracy functions, covering one of the most controversial periods between 1980 and 1996 Gives a blow-by-blow account of Mukherjee's return to Delhi from Contai alongside Rajiv Gandhi on 31 October 1984, the day Indira Gandhi was assassinated Openly talks about the incidents leading to Mukherjee's expulsion from the Congress party, and the years of struggle that followed as well as his failed attempt at starting a political party Narrates in great detail the infamous tussle between Swraj Paul and DCM/Escorts Chronicles the shocking demolition of the Babri Masjid and presents Mukherjee's candid views on whether the Narasimha Rao government could have done anything differently to prevent it The most-awaited second volume of Pranab Mukherjee's memoirs, after the bestselling The Dramatic Decade About the Author Pranab Mukherjee assumed office as the President of India on 25 July 2012. He was elected to the Rajya Sabha five times from 1969, and twice to the Lok Sabha from 2004 - a Member of Parliament for thirty-seven years. He has unparalleled experience in governance, with the rare distinction of being Minister for twenty-two years. He has served as Foreign, Defence, Commerce and Finance Minister, as also Deputy Chairman of the Planning Commission and, on several occasions, held charge of more than one portfolio. A recipient of the Padma Vibhushan, Pranab Mukherjee's intellectual and political prowess is widely admired. He has been long acclaimed for his role as a consensus builder on difficult national issues Learn More

    While much work has been done on exploring the communal tensions of the Independence era and the lode of ‘partition stories’ has been sufficiently mined, the more recent past has not been examined in any systematic way. In this collection of nineteen stories, edited and introduced by the well-known writer and translator Rakhshanda Jalil, we get a glimpse of the different hues and shades of communalism as well as different ways of accepting and interpreting this grim reality of recent times. A detailed Introduction contextualises the stories and the concerns raised therein and attempts to clarify what communalism means in India. Significantly, this collection does not restrict itself to stories that deal with Hindu-Muslim tensions; it includes stories about the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley, marginalisation of Hindus in Punjab and the persecution of Sikhs in the anti-Sikh riots of 1984. A collection such as this is timely and important. Sixty years after the communal violence of the Partition, once again the fabric of secular India is being challenged and contested; these stories present us with cameos of conflict and fear and also offer us vignettes of hope and resolution.
