In her forthcoming book, Rujuta talks about how food that is healthy for you is linked to your cultural and genetic history and how we are today essentially repackaging 5000-year old wisdom that has come down to us through the ages. She says that the secret foods for health, vitality and weight loss lie in our own kitchens and backyards.According to Rujuta research today is being guided by what your grandmother always knew.

Rejuvenate Yourself AbstractRejuvenate Yourself Abstract
“Rejuvenate Yourself-Abstract” is a Dreamland’s publication. It’s a beautiful colouring book meant for all age-groups. This is a new consideration which is being adapted around the globe. The basic idea behind this concept is to de-stress oneself through simply colouring the pages given in the book. Colouring, which is a great pastime or hobby for the kids, is being viewed as a stress buster for the adults today. Through “Rejuvenate Yourself”, a person can express his/her true self within the ambit of the world of colours. It’s a great way of achieving inner calm and serenity. Besides, one can explore his/her creative side as well. The book has the potential to put a positive impact on mothers-to-be and in turn their babies. It will help relax the woman’s mind while she is going through the most stressful 9-month phase of her life. A relaxed approach towards life will ensure healthy babies. Colouring has been recommended as a relaxation technique by the psychologists all over the world. They generally prescribe colouring in a calm environment. The activity briefly frees a person from the daily pressures and burdens. Although the problems do not go away, but at least the person’s brain gets a break from the continuous stress that one goes through in today’s fast paced lives. Colouring has lowered people’s blood pressure problems. It has to a large extent cured insomnia. Colour and mental health have been linked to each other since ages. As a result, psychologists recommend colouring for banishing anxiety and even come out of certain kinds of trauma. So, a colouring book in itself is a solution to many health issues and is said to be as effective as meditation. The number of leafs given in 1 set is 64. The Binding style of the book is paperback. The book is currently available on Amazon India, so the consumers can directly order their edition from the official website. About the author: Dreamland Publications has been publishing some very good literature books especially for the children. The authors at the publication house are teachers or educationists who are technically sound and experienced in handling children issues, so they are capable of delivering good quality literature for the children.

Ivory Throne: Chronicles of the House of TravancoreIvory Throne: Chronicles of the House of…
In 1498, when Vasco da Gama set foot in Kerala looking for Christians and spices, he unleashed a wave of political fury that would topple local powers like a house of cards. The cosmopolitan fabric of a vibrant trading society - with its Jewish and Arab merchants, Chinese pirate heroes and masterful Hindu Zamorins - was ripped apart, heralding an age of violence and bloodshed. One prince, however, emerged triumphant from this descent into chaos. Shrewdly marrying Western arms to Eastern strategy, Martanda Varma consecrated the dominion of Travancore, destined to become one of the most dutiful pillars of the British Raj. What followed was two centuries of internecine conflict in one of India's premier princely states, culminating in a dynastic feud between two sisters battling to steer the fortunes of their house on the eve of Independence. Manu S. Pillai's retelling of this sprawling saga focuses on the remarkable life and work of Sethu Lakshmi Bayi, the last - and forgotten - queen of the House of Travancore. The supporting cast includes the flamboyant painter Raja Ravi Varma and his wrathful wife, scheming matriarchs of 'violent, profligate and sordid' character, wife-swapping court favourites, vigilant English agents, quarrelling consorts and lustful kings. Extensively researched and vividly rendered, The Ivory Throne conjures up a dramatic world of political intrigues and factions, black magic and conspiracies, crafty ceremonies and splendorous temple treasures, all harnessed in a tragic contest for power and authority in the age of empire.

Hicky's Bengal Gazette: The Untold Story of India's First NewspaperHicky's Bengal Gazette: The Untold Story of…
Late eighteenth century Calcutta. The British are well-ensconced in Bengal, but not yet an empire. Indian princes pose a danger to the East India Company’s plans of commerce and domination. Warren Hastings, the British governor-general, is attempting to consolidate his power in the Company. Johann Zacharias Kiernander is on a mission to convert heathen souls in a land far from his native Sweden though he is not averse to lining his pockets while doing ‘God’s work’. Into this steaming cauldron of skullduggery and intrigue walks James Augustus Hicky, a wild Irishman seeking fame and fortune. Sensing an opportunity, he decides to establish a newspaper, the first of its kind in South Asia. In two short years, his endeavour threatens to lay bare the murky underside of the early British empire. Does it succeed? This is the story of the forces Hicky came up against, the corrupt authorities determined to stop him and of his resourcefulness. The product of five years of research by Andrew Otis in the archives of India, UK and Germany, Hicky’s Bengal Gazette: The Story of India’s First Newspaper is an essential and compelling addition to the history of subcontinental journalism.

Jewels of the NizamsJewels of the Nizams
One of the most outstanding collections of gemstones and jewellery was acquired by the Indian government in 1995. Sometimes worn but never shown, these jewels once belonged to the Nizams of Hyderabad, reputed to be the richest men in the world.Jewels of the Nizams is a study and documentation of this collection. Once part of the Nizams' state regalia and personal heritage, the ornaments date from the early 18[superscript th] century to the early 20[superscript th] century. Finely crafted from gold and silver and highlighted with exquisite enamelling, the jewels are set with Colombian emeralds, diamonds from the Golconda mines, Burmese rubies and spinels, and pearls from Basra and India.Though only a fraction of the legendary wealth of the Asaf Jah dynasty, the collection is breathtaking when translated into gem weights. There are over 25,000 diamonds weighing in excess of 12,000 carats, more than 2,000 emeralds weighing over 10,000 carats, and pearls exceeding 40,000 chows.Jewels of the Nizams documents this unique collection of jewels that give credence to legends, apocryphal tales and fading memories of a fabulously wealthy dynasty that ruled the Deccan for seven generations.

The One-Straw Revolution: An Introduction to Natural Farming (New York Review Books Classics)The One-Straw Revolution: An Introduction to…
Call it “Zen and the Art of Farming” or a “Little Green Book,” Masanobu Fukuoka’s manifesto about farming, eating, and the limits of human knowledge presents a radical challenge to the global systems we rely on for our food. At the same time, it is a spiritual memoir of a man whose innovative system of cultivating the earth reflects a deep faith in the wholeness and balance of the natural world. As Wendell Berry writes in his preface, the book “is valuable to us because it is at once practical and philosophical. It is an inspiring, necessary book about agriculture because it is not just about agriculture.” Trained as a scientist, Fukuoka rejected both modern agribusiness and centuries of agricultural practice, deciding instead that the best forms of cultivation mirror nature’s own laws. Over the next three decades he perfected his so-called “do-nothing” technique: commonsense, sustainable practices that all but eliminate the use of pesticides, fertilizer, tillage, and perhaps most significantly, wasteful effort.Whether you’re a guerrilla gardener or a kitchen gardener, dedicated to slow food or simply looking to live a healthier life, you will find something here—you may even be moved to start a revolution of your own.

The Design of Everyday ThingsThe Design of Everyday Things
The ultimate guide to human-centered design Even the smartest among us can feel inept as we fail to figure out which light switch or oven burner to turn on, or whether to push, pull, or slide a door. The fault, argues this ingenious-even liberating-book, lies not in ourselves, but in product design that ignores the needs of users and the principles of cognitive psychology. The problems range from ambiguous and hidden controls to arbitrary relationships between controls and functions, coupled with a lack of feedback or other assistance and unreasonable demands on memorization.The Design of Everyday Things shows that good, usable design is possible. The rules are simple: make things visible, exploit natural relationships that couple function and control, and make intelligent use of constraints. The goal: guide the user effortlessly to the right action on the right control at the right time.The Design of Everyday Things is a powerful primer on how--and why--some products satisfy customers while others only frustrate them.

Indian Nationalism: The Essential WritingsIndian Nationalism: The Essential Writings
How do we define nationalism? Who is a good nationalist? Do you become anti-national if you criticize the government? These are questions that overwhelm most debates today, but these discussions are not new. And while the loudest voices would have us believe that Indian nationalism is (and has always been) a narrow, parochial, xenophobic one, our finest political leaders, thinkers, scientists and writers have been debating the concept since the early nineteenth century and come to a different conclusion. Nationalism as we understand it today first came into being more than a hundred years ago. Studied by historians, political scientists and sociologists for its role in world history, it remains one of the strongest driving forces in politics and also the most malleable one. A double-edged sword, it can be a binding force or a deeply divisive instrument used to cause strife around political, cultural, linguistic or, more importantly, religious identities. In this anthology, historian. Irfan Habib traces the growth and development of nationalism in India from the late nineteenth century through its various stages: Liberal, religion-centric, revolutionary, cosmopolitan, syncretic, eclectic, right liberal the views of our most important thinkers and leaders—Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru. Rajagopalachari, Bhagat Singh, Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Sarojini Naidu, B. R. Ambedkar, Rabindranath Tagore, M. N. Roy, Maulana Azad, Jayaprakash Narayan and others remind us what nationalism should mean and the kind of inclusive, free and humanistic nation that we should continue to build.

Don't Loose Your Mind Loose Your Weight (Marathi)Don't Loose Your Mind Loose Your Weight (Marathi)
Is it really possible to lose those kilos without starving and by snacking every two hours? The answer is yes, if done with scientific study. This is what the author tries to do. By stressing on the importance of proper diet, correct exercise and recreation, she advises readers on the tricks behind having a balanced and healthy body. The book is a first in many ways. By going to little details that one rarely thinks of, she shows that losing weight is a cumulative process of many small but important things. For example, she recommends the use of an Indian style toilet rather than the western one. She also stresses on aspects like visiting the dentist once a month, something we rarely do. To a society and generation obsessed with stick thin bodies and dieting, this book is nothing short of a revelation. Told by a specialist by citing examples and studies, the book also gives valuable guidance on good eating habits. Rujuta Divekar needs no introduction; as the personal trainer and dietary advisor to people like Kareena Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, Lisa, Sonali and others, she has also been voted as the Best Personal Trainer. From guiding Anil Ambani's marathon effort to writing this book, her experience and knowledge is invaluable particular in this hectic lifestyle that we all have to follow. The Marathi version has been authored by Ujjwala Barve.

Axis Armoured Fighting Vehicles of the Second World War (Images of War)Axis Armoured Fighting Vehicles of the Second…
During the Second World War the Axis powers, most prolifically the Germans, deployed a vast array of armoured fighting vehicles to support their tanks and infantry. These included tank destroyers, reconnaissance vehicles, self-propelled artillery pieces, flame-thrower vehicles and self-propelled artillery pieces. Armoured tank destroyers, such as the Marder series, the Nashorn, Jagdpanther, Jagdtiger and the turretless German Stu III series (based on the Panzer III medium tank), helped the Nazis overcome their shortage of tanks. Copying the Stu III series the Italians created the turretless Semovente da 75/18 assault gun and the Hungarians the turretless Zrinyi. In the role of self-propelled artillery the German fielded the Hummel, the Wespe and the Grille while the Brummbar and the Sturmtiger performed in the dedicated assault gun role. For armoured reconnaissance German industry came up with a series of capable armored cars; examples were the eight-wheel Puma and the full-tracked Luchs reconnaissance tank. The Italians developed the impressive four-wheel Autoblinda armoured cars. Specialized anti-aircraft tanks such the Mobelwagen, Wirbelwind and the Ostwind gave some protection against the ever more powerful Allied air forces. This fine book covers all these variants and many more besides in words and rare images and will delight readers, collectors, model-makers and war-gamers.

From his appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show to his roster of celebrity clients to his reality television series, Cesar Millan is America’s most sought-after dog-behavior expert. But Cesar is not a trainer in the traditional sense—his expertise lies in his unique ability to comprehend dog psychology. Tracing his own amazing journey from a clay-walled farm in Mexico to the celebrity palaces of Los Angeles, Cesar recounts how he learned what makes dogs tick. In Cesar’s Way, he shares this wisdom, laying the groundwork for you to have stronger, more satisfying relationships with your canine companions.

Taking readers through the basics of dog psychology and behavior, Cesar shares the inside details of some of his most fascinating cases, using them to illustrate how common behavior issues develop and, more important, how they can be corrected. You'll learn: • What your dog really needs may not be what you’re giving him • Why a dog’s natural pack instincts are the key to your happy relationship • How to relate to your dog on a canine level • There are no “problem breeds,” just problem owners • How to choose a dog who’s right for you and your family • The difference between discipline and punishment • And much more! Filled with fascinating anecdotes about Cesar’s longtime clients, and including forewords by the president of the International Association of Canine Professionals and Jada Pinkett Smith, this is the only book you’ll need to forge a stronger, more rewarding connection with your four-legged companion.
