dhruv chak uses the medium of the short story to instantly transport the reader to a world where anything is possible and one could so easily think two impossible things before breakfast.
dhruva chak was born in allahabad and educated at la martiniere college, lucknow. He has a master’s in political science from lucknow university - where he captained the lawn tennis team - and an mba from iim ahmedabad.

The Black Silk Road Book

Get Price

In contemporary fiction The Black Silk Road connects the dots across the world landscape illuminating in harrowing clarity the path to 9/11.


A French journalist who had covered the Afghan war is assassinated and a child brutally maimed over evidence of U.S. weapons provided to the Middle East amounting to billions of dollars paid for by heroine. Eight years later (1998) in a search for the truth, the journalist's young American widow, a Pakistani BBC journalist and son of a wealthy shipping magnate, his sixteen-year old one-handed cousin now a terrorist in training, his brother and the beautiful wife he abuses, and two CIA Station Chiefs-one now in India and the other in Dubai, but both formerly posted in Pakistan-converge in love triangles and dangerous intrigue as the world erupts with nuclear tests, terrorist attacks, covert intelligence operations, corporate power chess, attempted assassinations, and murder.

As this very human, yet action filled journey unfolds across India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Dubai, London, Washington DC, Houston, Palestine, and southern Italy, it paints on the broader landscape the West's proliferation of weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East, government agents trafficking heroin out of Afghanistan to cover the cost of those weapons, and laundered profits in the billions making their way to corporate Wall Street. In addition to the drug profits, the primary end justifying those means is ownership of the drilling rights and the pipeline from the Caspian Sea to route the black silk east and control the profits in providing oil and LNG to energystarved India and China. When the coveted Caspian Sea region, thought to be the last great reserve of untapped oil is found to be a bust, the story ends on a chilling note of the options facing the Western world-options spelled out in a CIA hypothetical war-game known only to a very few.

Ayala

Ayãla has at its core the theme of incest.
The book is the story of Ayala who at the age of eleven is raped by her uncle. The incident is pushed back to the nether recesses of her memory and instead the book focuses on her growing up years where her mother is the dominant figure and her sister is a by product of an over active imagination, a safety valve on which to cushion her inner turmoil.

Ayãla gets married and looks forward to a different life with new beginnings and hope. But in a bizarre twist of fate, she spends her wedding night not with her husband but....... On one level this book is about abuse, about being dormant and the consequences that result from inaction hence the many vignettes on life, women and families in urban cities.

In one night, veiled by the invisibility offered by her radio show in Karachi, Maniza Naqvi's thoroughly modern heroine explores her own identity and that of her country. Unexpected and swift, her journey 'On Air' takes this modern Sheherezade into possible pasts, and imagined futures, as she spins tales to save, or at least understand, her life" Mohsin Hamid, Author of Moth Smoke

"Post -nuclear Pakistan is a medley of voices- the enigmatic female host of a phone-in talk show discovers as opinions abound, pizza, hijab, recipes which are a part of culture and not sectarianism, come together in a compelling narrative…A welcome addition to the stunted list of Pakistan's writers in English, Maniza Naqvi is a name to look out for."Asif Farrukhi.

Two effervescent worlds are evoked by a family of game-bird hunters –“shikaris” – in a dustbowl town of northern India. “Poets can talk about ‘spots of time,’ but it is really hunters who experience eternity compressed into a moment.” Writes Norman Maclean in A River Runs Through It. Badhwar’s free flowing, experimental style evokes these moments repeatedly in The Chamber of Perfumes.

A Woman Forgotten Reference Book

A woman falls in love with an artist who comes sketching by the sea; the woman is married, in her late-thirties, and has turned deeply religious, having been affected, like so many educated, modern Muslim women, by the preaching of the fundamentalist Wahabi sect of Islam, and she takes to wearing the hijab with defiance. And then she finds love with a man who is slightly younger and very different to her.
The story explores how erotic audacity can transform women and elationships, of what happens when this transformation ineluctably leads to the discovery of so many hidden possibilities.
This love story is used to explore the conventional view of Islamic teachings on women, how they misguidedly mould relationships and lives so that no transformation or psychological evolution can take place. This point of view is just a spark hidden in the story and the real thrust is on the love between the man and woman, of how what seems so black and sinful is yet so full of light.
The setting of the story is a place by the sea because there is a strange, compelling beauty to any place by the sea; an old, feudal family that once ruled over the area and still retains their heritage fort by the sea.

Peacemakers Pyre Book

The Conspirator's identity is unveiled to some as Perduellis. He was the Barue's friend in Book 1, cupbearer and advisor to the late Emperor, and tutor of the present Emperor. Working through a web of blackmail and backstabbing (so no one knows who's behind it), Perduellis forces C.O.K.E. to form an Inquisition army and appoint him its leader. It is meant to be directed at the Cult of Insanity. Perduellis has full control of the troops, and appoints the best soldiers from the Empire's army to his personal retinue.

Perduellis grows in public esteem because he is seen to be fighting the Cult. He controls the only newspaper to his advantage.

In reality, because Perduellis is allied with Ayactan anyway, the Inquisition is looking for pieces of Dattu's Book - it is so ancient and contains such powerful knowledge that a single page is worth a fortune and a lifetime of searching.

Resistance to Perduellis is formed at Eisenfels, the hidden fortress of living rock. Perduellis is quick to portray them as terrorists, but they receive support from underground newspapers and many soldiers join them. There are, of course, spies for both sides.

The Pinnacle Of Insanity Book

It turns out that the portal is only a local gateway for all Ostentum, who come from Calaspia itself, not an alien world. Nequam, the sorcerer who had "brought the Ostentum to Calaspia", appears to have been a good man after all. But is this really the case? The allies are bitterly divided over the issue, and, as Ayactan mounts his offensive, each of them faces a tough choice. They end up opposing each other. Friend kills friend, bitter hatred replaces the trust and cooperation of Book Two.

One side believes Nequam is innocent, and that he is the only one who can help them repel the threat and defeat Insanity forever. The other side believes they are foolish, and keep to the traditional belief that Nequam was the one responsible for the Wars of the Gate (which he was, but not in the way people think). Both forces use forbidden powers that are supposed to be used only by unanimous agreement.

So although they are both against Ayactan, they are split over the issue of whether to reactivate the portal to bring Nequam back from the Spiritworld. Bryn, who wields Culmus, is distraught by his friends' strife. For a long time, he refuses to fight on either side, but he ends up with those who believe in Nequam's goodness. Nequam returns, proves his innocence, and the allies of Book 2 are reunited. Together they drive out Ayactan and banish him to the Spiritworld from whence he came. They don't need to kill the Ostentum, for Nequam can control them as he did during the Wars of the Gate (see below) via the power of Insanity.

Arcane Students Book

Nequam, a young boy, is discovered by talent seekers from Itrim, an Order dedicated to the learning of magical and scientific lore, because of his natural talent and extraordinary knowledge of mythology. Eridanus is a young shepherd who lives near Itrim. He regularly helps a student of magic there. The Lore- Masters soon find out about this and, amazed at Eridanus' talent, they take him up to Itrim. Nequam and Eridanus quickly become best friends, and Itrim's best students. They are the youngest people ever to be promoted to the rank of Lore-Master, and excel at all they do.

Nequam believes there is more to the myths than meets the eye, and after years of research reaches the conclusion that the myths are in fact true. If that is so, then Brogan, the great scientist, must still be alive (the story of what really happened to Brogan is related in Sentinel of Fate). However, Nequam thinks that Brogan must not be in Calaspia, but rather in the Spiritworld. Nequam determines to find out. Taking a huge gamble, he travels there with his spirit, abandoning his body and entering a shadowy world of supernatural beings whom he meets. After searching for what appears to be a very long time, Nequam finds him - or rather, Brogan finds Nequam. At this stage, the Order of Itrim becomes aware that Nequam is doing something forbidden by entering the Spiritworld. They offer him his life if he stops, but he is unwilling to do so having discovered the truth about Insanity. He tries to persuade them of his discoveries, but they cling stubbornly to the rules, and do not listen. For: "anyone who enters into collaboration with Insanity is surely corrupt, and must be put to death".

Insane Wisdom Book

Nequam returns to Calaspia from the Spiritworld to find that Ayactan is waging full-scale war against the Empire. Weakened by the separation from his body, Nequam is easily convinced by the demon that the Empire made the first aggressive move, and that it was they who tried to destroy his uninhabited body. Ayactan shows him an exaggerated vision of his relatives cursing his name and "burying" him - declaring him dead to them - and of Eridanus, his best friend, hunting him with an army of Lore-Masters and Culmus Sangui.

Blind with grief, Nequam takes over his army, and with Ayactan as his champion, he launches a series of violent attacks against the Empire. He even travels as far inland as the cultural capital of Armaah and burns it to the ground (it was because of this that the manmade island was built to replace the old capital). Many Lore-Masters from Itrim join Nequam: this is a unique chance to do whatever they want, without the rules and limitations prescribed by the Order of Itrim, and there hasn't ever been a dark sorcerer strong enough to stand up to the establishment up till now.

Nequam again travels to the Spiritworld, having done most of what Brogan told him to do. In a freak raid against his stronghold by Culmus Sangui, led by his once best friend, his body is found staring unseeing, and is promptly killed. Without their leader, the Ostentum quickly crumble and are hunted down. Ayactan goes into hiding, and is thought dead.

Sentinel Of Fate Book

This is the story that sets everything in motion. It is the tale of the ancestors of the heroes of Bryn, thousands of years earlier, and focuses amongst others on Brogan the genius scientist-magician. His theories lead to the discovery of the multi-verse and Insanity, and later to the many misconceptions that would confuse future generations. The Avatars were placed by God in Calaspia to govern the Races; one Avatar per race. Ikuyl was given the Barue but he disowned them, furious at God, because he saw them as weak and pathetic compared for example to the strong, elegant Nephelim. Ikuyl was, after all, the first and best of God's Avatars. Instead he takes it upon himself to create something even more powerful to triumph over the races - including his own Barue, which had been adopted by another Avatar.

The other Avatars, at Ikuyl's suggestion, took part in a Battle to prove which of the Avatars is the strongest: all of them and their races against Ikuyl. Of course, they assumed Ikuyl would make a race of brutal fighters, and this he did: the Nurgor and, later, the Ostentum - both of which could be controlled by his use of Insanity. It was at this time that Brogan first opened a portal to other universes and the Spiritworld, which is why people thought the Ostentum had come through the gate. Ikuyl was quick to encourage this tale, even constructing a fixed portal himself and pretending that this was Brogan's Portal. Later, when the Ostentum had scattered all over Calaspia, Ikuyl always summoned them to one location through this Gate, reinforcing most people's belief that the Ostentum were summoned from other worlds.

Feng Shui means "Wind and Water" and has been used for thousands of years in China and the Far East as a method for determining the most appropriate locations for a harmonious life. These locations can be the site of a building, the floor-plan of a house or just the layout of a room.

What can Feng Shui do for me?
Feng Shui affects every aspect of our life and the way it is applied can be both beneficial and detrimental to the way you live and the surrounding environment. Feng Shui is not a religion, although some of its advocates may consider it part of their religious practice. It is not necessary to follow any religion to understand or practice Feng Shui. Feng Shui is not just a philosophy as it also encompasses many practical tools and techniques. It is not a belief system: asking someone if they believe Feng Shui is like asking them if they believe in the weather. It is not a question of faith, but a fact of life.

On a summer day, the temperature can rise up to 50º C, and the night temperature can drop down as low as 2º C - with chilly winds blowing. The vastness and the stillness of the desert can open your mind to that spirit which lingers on the distant horizon. At the same time you close yourself into space which are dark and fight the intense heat. You shrink your space from that endless vastness - to a mud cell, where you can almost touch the walls by simply extending your arms.

This duality of contradiction, perhaps, is the ruling deity of life in the desert. And if you are close to the people, in sharing - and in attempt to comprehend their life, you start oscillating between this duality and feel somewhat lost.

Thematic Space in Indian Architecture represents an attempt to understand the spatial order that apparently runs right across the enormous spectrum of building types in India. This spatial order seems to emerge more from its own meanings rather than the specificity of any function. This very ambiguity creates a range of spaces that are similar in form and yet diverse in character.

An effort to understand space in Indian architecture can draw on the simple and direct physical conditions of the environment prevailing at any place, thus giving a meaning to the creation of spaces within specific physical parameters. This discussion is, therefore, an attempt to understand and explain the ideas of space as observed in various essential, functional and structural expressions in the architectural traditions of India. It is not based on mythical beliefs or romantic versions of ‘notion of space’.

This book presents a number of the finest and best-preserved murals1 still extant in the temples
and palaces of Kerala. I was fortunate in being authorized to take photographs of these murals and most of them will be seen for the first time. Through these visual treasures many will thus be able to penetrate in the sacred atmosphere of Kerala Hindu temples. Apart from devotees who consider these images as worthy of worship as the consecrated images inside the sanctum, these paintings will also be appreciated by all art lovers interested in mural painting and iconographic depictions of the gods of Hindu mythology.

The murals are introduced here in their historical, architectural, iconographic, and mythical contexts. I hope that their underlying sacred value will come to light through the presentation of the aesthetic, religious and spiritual background which has gone into their making. The exceptional beauty of these murals comes from an intense devotional feeling experienced by the painters of the past, and hopefully of today’s painters as well in the continuing tradition, feeling which instills them with life. This is true of all forms of traditional and ritual performing arts of Kerala. Many of these arts are gaining recognition worldwide and it is hoped that by making these works of art
available to a larger public it will help to show the variety and wealth of Kerala's cultural heritage.

the travel writer’s darling, the travel photographer’s favourite muse and the travel agent’s most lucrative land — that is ladakh. And by that description, the region’s foremost appeal, whether through photographs or articles, remains its isolation. The grand land of nothingness. This same vision finds itself in countless books, over and over again. In talking about the same places and the same events and people, ladakh has
been reduced to a just a handful of destinations and portrayed as a land caught in a time warp.

trance himalaya is an attempt to break that mould and cover hitherto uncharted territory. The vision of this book is not blocked by the mountains, but spreads all over ladakh. The writer has travelled extensively — living with the nomadic chang-pas on some occasions, and with monks in cavernous monasteries at others. Over nine years, he has walked this land and on frozen rivers to find a fast vanishing culture and a region under siege from modernity.

This book is not a polemic - the resolution of the Kashmir issue is long past such argumentation. Nor has the Author aimed the book at policy makers and experts, who are already aware of most of the details it contains, but to the average interested reader, especially of the younger generation, born after the Simla Agreement was signed and has heard mainly the strident Pakistani version, amplified by the events of the past decade-and-half’s militancy in the state. The Indian case in Kashmir is strongly rooted in legality, as well as a profound emotion that may not
be visible at first sight, but quickly comes to the fore when the state is threatened by physical danger.
