Classic Fiction

Man's Search for MeaningMan's Search for Meaning
Man's Search for Meaning was first published in 1946. Victor Frankl was a leading psychologist in Vienna when he was arrested for being a Jew during the Nazi regime. He survived holocaust and used his experiences to write this book. He propounded the theory that it is Man's constant search for meaning that allows him to survive even the most brutal, the most degrading situations in his life. He said there are only two races in the world, the decent and indecent. They will maintain their innate beliefs, no matter which side they are on. The decent ones will try to help the fellow human beings and the indecent ones will be selfish and serve themselves at the cost to the others. Frankl's views were different from those of the leading psychologist of his times, Freud and Adler. His research was intensely personal and unique. His findings of human behaviour were based on the most extenuating circumstances that humans face. He suffered holocaust along with several other inmates and he observed their behaviour closely. He found that those with a capability to focus on love were the ones that survived. He based this observation on a long walk he was forced into by his captors. His companion spoke about his wife. This made Frankl think about his wife and the thought of her took his mind away from his current agony of being hit with rifle butts by his captors for dawdling. The book has been listed as one of the 10 most influential books. It has a message of hope that has continued to inspire readers down the years. About the author: Victor Emile Frankl was a successful neurologist and psychologist dedicated to saving people from suicidal depression. He was born into a Jewish family because of which he was prosecuted by the Nazi regime after they took over Austria. He was banished to Nazi Theresienstadt Ghetto along with his family in 1942. He continued to practice as a Psychologist there and continued to treat people with depression. He was sent to Auschwitz in 1944 where he spent several months before they were liberated in 1945. He watched his family die in concentration camps. He used his experiences as a holocaust survivor in his bestselling book Man's search for meaning. He worked at the Vienna Polyclinic for Neurology. He lectured extensively and conducted seminars all over the world. He lectured at the University of Vienna and Harvard. He wrote 39 books which were translated in several languages. He died of heart failure in 1997.

The Immortals of Meluha (Shiva Trilogy)The Immortals of Meluha (Shiva Trilogy)
An intense story 'The Immortals of Meluha' draws heavily from stories and legends of Hindu mythology that have been passed on from generation to generation. First book of the trilogy, the Immortals tale unfolds in Meluha, a land that is ruled by the Suryavanshi tribe that firmly believes in the prophecy of 'Neelkanth' Shiva being their saviour. The Suryavanshi’s (Sun worshipers) are of the firm belief that it would be Shiva who would save them from the wrath of Chandravanshi’s (Moon worshipers). Blending mythology and philosophy drawn from Hindu traditions, the gripping narrative moves with speed to have Shiva step up to take it upon himself about banishing evil from society. As the tribal leader of Meluha, somewhere in Tibet, Shiva decides to help the Suryavanshi's in their fight against the Chandravanshi, who have allied with the Nagas, a cursed tribe. As the drama unfolds, Shiva, the tribal leader from Tibet, gets caught up between the two warring groups, where a realization dawns upon him of how his choice was affecting the war outcome as well as of aspirations of rising above the conflict and its actors begins to dominate the narrative. The author has creatively woven the legend of Lord Shiva; His marriage to King Daksha's daughter Sati is this first part of the trilogy. 'Secret of Nagas' and 'Oath of the Vayuputras' the second and third part of the same narrative take the story forward as the first part ends with Shiva charging to save Sati from being taken captive by the Naga's. Spread out in 415 pages, 'The Immortals of Meluha' was first published in 2011. After a slow start, the book soon turned a bestseller and more than two million copies have been sold. Till date it has been translated in fourteen languages. About the Author: Amish Tripathi, an IIM Calcutta graduate, gave up a successful bankers’ job of fourteen years to pursue his passion for writing. Born and brought up under Hindu traditions, the writer draws inspiration from the legend of Lord Shiva, something that he has famously woven into a bestselling fantasy fiction trilogy. As an author of best sellers, Forbes India has even included him among the top hundred celebrities of India.

Tumhare Baare MeinTumhare Baare Mein
मैं उस आदमी से दूर भागना चाह रहा था जो लिखता था। बहुत सोच-विचार के बाद एक दिन मैंने उस आदमी को विदा कहा जिसकी आवाज़ मुझे ख़ालीपन में ख़ाली नहीं रहने दे रही थी। मैंने लिखना बंद कर दिया। क़रीब तीन साल कुछ नहीं लिखा। इस बीच यात्राओं में वह आदमी कभी-कभी मेरे बग़ल में आकर बैठ जाता। मैं उसे अनदेखा करके वहाँ से चल देता। कभी लंबी यात्राओं में उसकी आहट मुझे आती रही, पर मैं ज़िद में था कि मैं इस झूठ से दूर रहना चाहता हूँ। इस बीच लगातार मेरे पास फ़ोन था, जिससे मैं यात्राओं में तस्वीरें खींचता रहा। फिर किसी बच्चे की तरह यहाँ-वहाँ देखकर कि कहीं वह आदमी आस-पास तो नहीं है? मैं अपने फ़ोन में नोट्स खोलता और ठीक उस वक़्त का जो भी महसूस हो रहा है, जिसे मैं छू भी सकता हूँ, दर्ज कर लेता। इन दस्तावेज़ों को उस वक़्त खींची तस्वीरों के साथ इंस्टाग्राम पर पोस्ट कर देता। मानो अंतरिक्ष में संदेश छोड़ा हो। शायद मैं इस तरह का लिखना बहुत समय से तलाश रहा था, जो न कविता है, न कहानी है, वह बस उस वक़्त की सघनता का एक चित्र है जिसमें पतंग बिना धागे के उड़ रही है। इस किताब में यात्राएँ हैं, नाटकों को बनाने का मुक्त अकेलापन है, कहानियाँ हैं, मौन में बातें हैं, इंस्टाग्राम की लिखाई है और लिखने की अलग-अलग अवस्थाएँ हैं। एक तरीक़े का बाँध था, जिसका पानी कई सालों से जमा हो रहा था। इस किताब में मैंने वह बाँध तोड़ दिया है।---- मानव कौल

As A Man ThinkethAs A Man Thinketh
James Allen's books have their source in the teachings of religions across the world, especially the New Testament, the Old Testament, Buddhism, and the thoughts of World's great philosophers. *As a Man Thinketh*, the widely acclaimed book is second in the list of inspirational books written by Allen. Echoing the Buddhist teaching that all that we are is the result of our thoughts, Allen tries to establish in this book that, as a man thinks in his heart, so he is. Allen drives home the two essential truths of life through this book. First, that we are what our thoughts have made us because thought leads us to action. Second, that we are the architects of our future. If we believe in this, we can transform our dreams into realities.

Sudha Murty-through the exceptional work of the Infosys Foundation as well as through her own youth, family life and travels-encounters many such stories... And she tells them here in her characteristically clear-eyed, warm-hearted way.

From the quiet joy of discovering the reach of Indian cinema and the origins of Indian vegetables to the shallowness of judging others based on appearances, these are everyday struggles and victories, large and small. Unmasking both the beauty and ugliness of human nature, each of the real-life stories in this collection is reflective of a life lived with grace.

Vanara: The Legend of Baali, Sugreeva and TaraVanara: The Legend of Baali, Sugreeva and Tara
Baali and Sugreeva of the Vana Nara tribe were orphan brothers who were born in abject poverty and grew up as slaves like most of their fellow tribesmen. They were often mocked as the vanaras, the monkey men. Sandwiched between the never-ending war between the Deva tribes in the north and the Asura tribes in the south, the Vana Naras seemed to have lost all hope. But Baali was determined not to die a slave. Aided by his beloved brother, Sugreeva, Baali built a country for his people. The capital city, Kishkindha, became a beacon of hope for emancipated slaves from across the world. It was a city of the people, by the people, for the people, where there was no discrimination based on caste, creed, language or the colour of skin. For a brief period in history, it seemed as if mankind had found its ideal hero in Baali. But then fate intervened through the beautiful Tara, the daughter of a tribal physician. Loved by Baali and lusted after by Sugreeva, Tara became the cause of a fraternal war that would change history for ever.The love triangle between Baali, Tara and Sugreeva is arguably the world's first. Written by Anand Neelakantan who gave a voice to Ravana in Asura, Duryodhana in the Ajaya series and Sivagami in the Baahubali series, Vanara is a classic tale of love, lust and betrayal. Shakespearean in its tragic depth and epic in its sweep, Vanara gives voice to the greatest warrior in the Ramayana-Baali.
