  • Karakarthaprabodhini

    Kaumud? (water lily) is the primer to study Sanskrit grammar, yet an ardent reader might find it a maze to untangle from its complexities. There is a need of Kaumud? (moonlight) to blossom it and show the light to reach its core. K?rak?rtha-prabodhin? is such an attempt. K?raka, a factor that determines the relation between verb and the constituent words of a sentence, enables the reader to understand the intent of the sentence and thus critical discourses too. The Sanskrit grammatical texts and discourses have elaborated on the subtleties of K?raka. Due to its profundity, there was a need for a lucid writing for the scholars and students for easy comprehension, which can be a reference book. Dr Potti made this possible for the Malayalam readers. Dr Shivani presents it for the Sanskrit fraternity too, with an introduction by Dr Varakhedi.

  • U-Turn

    The Marathi play. U-Turn has won millions of hearts with more than 585 shows across Maharashtra and beyond. Its translation in Gujarathi has seen more than 115 shows and the one in Hindi over 50 shows. This success encouraged Prof Neeta Inamdar to take up the translation of this work in Kannada with the support of Mrs Savita Sastri. The play has only two characters throughout and has a couple of voices other than the two who are on the stage for the entire duration. The central idea of the play is the differences in the acceptance of modernity and the conflicts associated with this in two different generations. A companionship between a divorced army Major and a widow both in their late 50s is resisted by their children and expressed in different ways though they embrace modernity for themselves. Neeta Inamdar is the Head at the Department of European Studies (DES) at Manipal University (MU) and the Chief Editor of Manipal University Press (MUP). Music and theatre are her interests that made her take up this work with the assistance of Mrs Savita Sastri. Savita Sastri is a woman entrepreneur from Manipal, who also facilitates funds for Baba Amte?s Anandavana. She is a voracious reader of books and plays in Marathi, Hindi and English, who extended her support towards this translation project.

  • The Multivalence of an Epic: Retelling the Ramayana in South India and Southeast Asia

    The R?m?ya?a traditions of South India and Southeast Asia are examined at multiple levels in this volume. The research presented here offers in-depth investigations of chosen moments in the development of the epic tradition together with broader trends that help in understanding the epic?s multivalence. The journey and localization of the R?m?ya?a is explored in its manifold expressions ? from classical to folk, from temples and palaces to theatres and by-lanes in cities and villages, and from ancient to modern times. Regional R?m?ya?as from different parts of South India and Southeast Asia are placed in deliberate juxtaposition to enable a historically informed discussion of their connected pasts across land and seas. The three parts of this volume, organized as visual, literary, and performance cultures, discuss the sculpted, painted, inscribed, written, recited, and performed R?m?ya?as. A related emphasis is on the way boundaries of medium and genre have been crossed in the visual, literary, and performed representations of the R?m?ya?a.These are rewarding directions of research that have thus far received little attention. Bringing together 19 well-known scholars in R?m?ya?a studies from Cambodia, Canada, France, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, UK, and USA, this thought-provoking and elegantly illustrated volume engages with the inherent plurality, diversity, and adaptability of the R?m?ya?a in changing socio-political, religious, and cultural contexts and with shifting norms, tastes, traditions, and ideologies.

  • COVID-19: A Multidimensional Response

  • The Semi-detached European

    The European Union has emerged as a world economic power from the ashes of the Second World War. Starting with the post-war settlement, the book takes a broad and informed view of Britain?s changing relationship with this dynamic development. The successful attempt to revive democracy and establish economic recovery in Western Europe was fuelled by Franco-German reconciliation but Britain remained benevolently aloof. Britain?s own recovery was not as successful as that of the emerging ?Common Market?, and so Britain?s political elite looked to Europe to replace the markets it was losing worldwide only to be spurned by her long-time rival France. Thereon, Britain played an influential role, especially in the development of the ?internal market?. However, Britain never quite lost the tag of being semi-detached ? wanting to take the benefits but always wary of surrendering national sovereignty for the alleged greater good. This book reviews the vital role played by major actors in Europe?s integration, including the decisive duel between Margaret Thatcher and Jacques Delors about the nature of the Europe. It provides an assessment of the epoch-making events of the fall of Berlin Wall which opened the possibility of a reunited Europe.In this book, the author also describes his own ?Europeanization? as a student, then as an active politician who engaged in Europe?s transformation first-hand.

  • English Drama on the Bombay Stage in the Late Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century

    Theatre in Mumbai or colonial Bombay emerged at a time when the city was still finding its own contours and taking shape. ?Theatre? in the sense of the art form and the word that we know today, which has been comfortably incorporated in almost all Indian languages also took shape during this early period. Kumudini Arvind Mehta?s doctoral dissertation, submitted to the University of Bombay, now known as University of Mumbai is being published in the form of this book. It navigates the journey of ?theatre? starting with the early ?amateur theatre? at Bombay Green in the late eighteenth century. Today we know this area as the Horniman Circle in Mumbai. She traces the origins of professional theatre in colonial Bombay to the amateur exercises of the English inhabitants, the Parsi businessmen and the English educated local inhabitants of the city. She painstakingly goes through newspaper articles and announcements, old journals, property papers, old maps etc., to weave the narrative of ?theatre? that shapes the legacy of the art form that was either inherited or rejected by later artists. Mehta?s work is significant not only for the study of ?theatre? but also to understand colonial sociability and the role of the English language in this regard. Sharmistha Saha, the editor of the book has given it its present shape. She has primarily updated citations, incorporated information on current research as also images of the erstwhile theatre districts wherever applicable.
