F50 Films That Changed Bollywood

Rs 399 / PieceGet Latest Price

Hindi cinema was trapped in formulaic clichés for decades: lost-and-found themes, sacrificing mothers, brothers on opposite sides of the law, villains lording over their dens, colourful molls, six songs, the use of a plot pivot, and cops who always arrived too late. It hit an all-time low in the 1980s. Then, in 1991, came liberalization, and a wave of openness and aspiration swept across urban India. Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge was released in 1995 – and Hindi cinema became Bollywood.

A new crop of film-makers began to challenge and break away from established rules. Over the next twenty years, a number of Hindi films consistently pushed the envelope in terms of content and technique to create a new kind of cinema. Among other innovations, film-makers came up with ways of crowd funding a film (Ankhon Dekhi), did away with songs if the narrative did not need them (Gangaajal), addressed different preferences (My Brother … Nikhil) and people with special needs (Black) like no one had ever done before.

As film critic with The Indian EXPRESS, Shubhra Gupta has stayed the course these twenty years and more and experienced the transition first-hand. In 50 Films That Changed Bollywood, 1995–2015, she looks at the modern classics that have redefined Hindi cinema – from DDLJ and Rangeela to Satya and Dev D to Queen and Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Gupta offers a fascinating glimpse into how these films spoke to their viewers and how the viewers reacted to them – and, ultimately, how they changed us and how we changed them.

Fearless In Opposition

Rs 500 / PieceGet Latest Price

What is the BJP’s definition of nationalism? Why did the UPA government follow a policy of ‘strategic restraint’? Why is Mgnrega an important instrument in the larger context of India’s transformation? How has the ‘surgical strike’ on currency resulted in difficulties for millions of people? These contentious questions are just a few of the myriad political, strategic and economic issues that former Union Minister P. Chidambaram analyses in his latest book.

Written in inimitable style and characteristic wit by one of India’s most influential political commentators, this book brings together a selection of the finest and most incisive essays published as a weekly column in the Indian EXPRESS in 2016. This is as much a showcase of P. Chidambaram’s impeccable writing as it is a thought-provoking commentary on the state of the nation.

Standing Guard A Year In Opposition

Rs 500 / PieceGet Latest Price

Authored by P. Chidambaram, one of India’s best-known politicians, Standing Guard offers a keen economic and political analysis of India@2015—the tumult of the 2015 Bihar election, the debates surrounding the Land Acquisition Amendment ordinances and the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Bill, and the alarming rise of intolerance.

In this rare collection of essays, a selection from his columns in The Indian EXPRESS, Chidambaram refuses to shy away from any subject, no matter how contentious. With characteristic candour he examines issues as varied as the true mandate of the Reserve Bank of India, the implications of the Union Budgets, the successes and failures of the United Progressive Alliance governments, and the formidable challenges that lie ahead of the Modi regime. Equally, the author presents a compass for the future— underscoring the need for humility while administering a complex nation and for accommodating Opposition voices for the greater common good.

In presenting, at once, a critique and a constructive road map, this book plays out the true meaning of a vibrant democracy—a system of governance
in which the Opposition stands guard and remains as responsible as the government of the day. Standing Guard is evidence why P. Chidambaram is considered not just an accomplished economist and administrator, but also a statesman of the finest calibre.

Modi S World

Rs 499 / PieceGet Latest Price

Modi’s World tells the story of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vigorous diplomacy and his aspiration to elevate India’s place in the world. It offers insights into Modi’s foreign policy inheritance, his efforts to build on the foundations laid by his recent predecessors, Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Manmohan Singh, and set more ambitious international goals of his own for India. The book, based on Raja Mohan’s columns for The Indian Express, examines the new opportunities that Modi’s energy has generated for India’s relations with the major powers and its neighbours in the subcontinent, Asia and the Indian Ocean.

Raja Mohan reviews India’s new initiatives under Modi to put diplomacy at the service of economic development, deepen the ties with the diaspora, and develop a new vocabulary for Indian foreign policy. He takes a close look at Modi’s attempts to end Delhi’s defensiveness on the world stage, inject greater flexibility into India’s positions on trade and climate change, discard past slogans like non-alignment, and construct a new framework of pragmatic internationalism. At the same time, Raja Mohan takes a critical look at some of the domestic constraints that could limit Modi’s ambition to make India a ‘leading power’ in the world.

Crisply argued and written, Modi’s World provides the reader a sharp focus on an area of intense activity.

How many, in a Mumbai room full of Hermes ties and finance whizkids, are Dalit? What if Mahesh Bhatt's son, David Headley's friend, had been a Muslim? Why is Delhi getting better as a city and Mumbai going downhill?

When did the Congress first start shrinking its Prime Minister? When did it become clear that Narendra Modi would take over his party? Who are the HMTs? And what does an angry Arvind Kejriwal say about us?

Raising such questions is the hallmark of Shekhar Gupta's National Interest, the most eagerly awaited news and current affairs column in Indian journalism. Informed by three decades and more of formidable reporting and a credibility that gives Gupta unrivalled access to decision-makers in government, politics and business, the best of these columns in Anticipating India explain and interpret, provoke and predict change for more than a billion people.

A riveting first draft of modern Indian history, Anticipating India interprets the successes and failings of Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Manmohan Singh to the ascent of Rahul Gandhi, Narendra Modi and Arvind Kejriwal, the forces that have deepened Indian federalism and constitutionalism to the public mood that keeps a check on excesses in the use of political power.

Each chapter in Anticipating India, in its questioning of power, its use and abuse, carries within it ideas of India that challenge conventional wisdom, shatter stereotypes and, in the end, question our long-held assumptions of who we are as a nation and people.

Transforming Our Cities Postcards Of Change

Rs 599 / PieceGet Latest Price

Transforming Our Cities by Isher Judge Ahluwalia presents an aankho-dekhi and ankon-jaanchi story of the change in some of India’s cities that the author has observed in the course of her extensive travels in the past 4 years. The author traveled to small towns, medium cities and large mega- cities of India in search of what works to improve service delivery.

She has documented the stories of innovation and enterprise that have transformed governance and the quality of life in these cities. Whether it is water supply, wastewater disposal and treatment, solid waste management, systems of public transport, or city planning.

Ahluwalia launched 'Postcards of change' , a series of monthly columns in The Indian Express and THE FINANCIAL EXPRESS in January, 2010.

The book provides an overview of the challenges of urbanization in India and specific issues in individual sectors such as drinking water, solid waste management, etc. While applauding human leadership which stands out in each case, the individual case studies highlight the role of the enabling environment provided by the state government which was a key factor in driving change, leadership provided by the government of India in general and the catalytic role of JNNURM, in particular.

The author recognizes that these success stories may be few and far between, and much remains to be done in the close to 8000 cities and town of India. But the fact that they can succeed in an environment which is fraught with the challenges of governance, holds out hope for the future. There is no getting away from a systemic reform of institutions of governance and of policies.

The book should have a wide-ranging appeal-policy makers at different levels of government, academics, students, researchers, civil society, concerned citizens, and the media !
