The Practical Sanskrit English Dictionary from the Author: Vaman Shivaram Apte. This Dictionary has been undertaken to supply a want long felt by the student, f a complete and at the same time cheap Sanskrit-English Dictionary. Very little need, I think, be said with regard to the necessity of bringing out a work like this, when the study of Sanskrit has received such a strong impetus during the last twenty five years. There have been four or five Sanskrit-English Dictionaries published till now; but very few of them fulfil the two essential conditions of the popularity and usefulness of such works: satisfying all the requirements of students and at the same time being within their easy reach. The Dictionaries of Professors Wilson and Monier Williams are very useful and valuable works, but their prices-particularly of the latter-are prohibitively high, and they do not also meet many of the most ordinary wants of Sanskrit readers. A student, while reading Sanskrit at School or College, generally expects that the Dictionary which he uses will give will give appropriate equivalents for such words and compound expressions as may have peculiar meanings or shades of meaning in particular passages.

A Practical Sanskrit Dictionary With Transliteration Accentuation And Etymological Analysis Throughout from the Author: Arthur Anthony Macdonell. This Dictionary includes the vocubulary of Post-Vedic literature wuth emphasis on philosophical, grammatical and rhetorical terms. Further this is the only handy dictionary of its kind which breaks a word into its mponenet parts and refers to the roots deducible from sanskrit derivatives alone by way of comparative derivatives alone by way of comparative philosogical analysis. The work is therefore highly useful for the etymological analysis and linguistic training.

It Is Much More Copious And Contains Nearly Double As Much Material As Other Sanskrit Works Of The Same Character. Another Merit Of The Work Is That It Is The Only One Of Its Kind That Is Transliterated And Can Thus Be Used With Advantage By Comparative Philologists Not Conversant With The Devanagri Alphabet.

An Indian Tartuffe from the Author: Prahlad Keshav Atre. Molieres 'Tartuffe' gehort zu den popularsten Theaterstucken Europas - nicht ohne Grund, denn Heuchler, insbesondere religiose, enttarnt zu sehen ist ein Vergnugen der besonderen Art. Auch in Indien bestand zu keiner Zeit ein Mangel an entsprechenden Studienobjekten, so dass die Adaptation des Stucks durch P.K. Atre (einem der bekanntesten Autoren des indischen Bundesstaats Maharashtra) aus dem Jahr 1963 gut in das Bild kritischer Texte und volkstumlichen Witzes seit dem indischen Mittelalter passt. Die sudasiatische Tartuffe-Version ist fur westliche Leser aus verschiedenen Grunden reizvoll: Tartuffes indisches Gegenstuck ist ein Guru, d.h. er gehort einer Spezies an, die inzwischen auch hierzulande anzutreffen ist. Geschickt hat der Autor das franzosische Szenario des 17. Jh. in das Indien des 20. Jh. eingepasst, naturlich mit einigen charakteristischen Veranderungen. Diese betreffen teils die gesellschaftlichen Verhaltnisse, teils die ausseren Formen der Religiositat, von denen auch einige der altehrwurdigsten von Atres Witz nicht verschont bleiben. Um westlichen Lesern den Einstieg in die hinduistische Welt zu erleichtern, sind der Ubersetzung ausfuhrliche Noten und eine Einfuhrung beigegeben. Fur diejenigen, die ihre Kenntnisse des Mara - h - (der Sprache Maharashtras) aufbessern wollen, enthalt der Band zusatzlich das Original des Stucks.Molieres 'Tartuffe' is one of the most popular plays of Europe - not without reason, because it is a pleasure of the special kind to see unmasked hypocrites - religious in particular. As is the case in Europe, a lack of appropriate study objects also never existed in India. The adaptation of the piece by P.K. Atre (a well-known author of the Indian Federal State Maharashtra) from the year 1963 therefore fits well into the tradition of critical texts and popular jokes since the Indian Middle Ages. The South Asiatic version of Tartuffe is delightful for Western readers for different reasons: Tartuffe's Indian counterpart is a Guru, i.e. he belongs to a species, which can be found also in Europe in the meantime. With great skills the author has adapted the French scenario of the 17th Century into the India of the 20th Century naturally with some characteristic changes. These concern partly social and religious conditions, of which even some of the most patriarchal do not remain exempted from Atres jokes. In order to facilitate the entrance into the Hindu world for western readers, the translation is accompanied by detailed notes and an introduction. For those, who want to improve their knowledge of the Marahi (the language Maharashtras), the volume contains additionally the original of the piece.

Rethinking Hindu Identity from the Author: Dwijendra Narayan Jha. The book provides an antidote to the virulent version of Hindu communalism and cultural chauvinism and seeks to expose the hollowness of the xenophobic claims about Hindu religious identity. It identifies some of the stereotypes about Hinduism and shows them to be without any basis in historical evidence. Contrary to the belief popularized by the Hindu jingoists, it shows that Hinduism, far from being eternal and monolithic, is the youngest of religions and that its supposed tolerant nature is a myth.
