The Evolution Of Gods @ Ajay Kansal • RM 61.00 😁 N E W • • Paperback • 230+ pgs • 2012Pub • • Preordered • Patience Necessary • ❄ D M • U S •  2 • P U R C H A S E ❄ ⚡ Did gods create mankind, or did mankind create gods? Why, when and how did mankind begin to worship gods? Religious scriptures the world over claim that one or the other god made man, but science has not yet identified any supernatural power that created and governed human beings. Was it man who came up with the idea of gods to help him cope with his own fears? Could it be that ancient people attributed natural phenomena-unfathomable and frightening to them-to the working of invisible gods? What kind of sufferings or bewilderments made people bow before unseen powers or gods as we call them? When were these gods created? Who invented morals and methods of worship? Who wrote the ancient scriptures such as the Bible and the Vedas? Most crucially, have gods and the scriptures shaped our responses to the world around us? The Evolution of Gods seeks to answer these questions, and explains scientifically how, when and why religions and gods came into being. Ajay Kansal marshals anthropological and historical facts about the development of religions in a simple and straightforward manner to assert that it was mankind that created gods, and not the other way around.⚡ #malaysia #booklover #bookstagram #musthave #readingforlife #readergram #readreadread #seriousreading #selfhelpbook #lightreading #mustread  #manuscriptsbymukthi #bestseller

Storywallah : Mandali @ Neelesh Mishra • RM 61.00 😁 N E W • • Paperback • 270+ pgs • June 2018 Pub • • Preordered • Patience Necessary • ❄ D M • U S •  2 • P U R C H A S E ❄ 🌸 In 2011, the screenwriter, lyricist and journalist Neelesh Misra started mentoring a handpicked group of writers called the Mandali. These were men and women of all ages, backgrounds and dispositions. The Mandali soon started writing radio stories in Hindi, for Misra's show Yaadon Ka Idiotbox-short, pithy, bittersweet narratives that immediately struck a chord with listeners across the country.  Translated for the first time in English, this collection represents the Mandali at the height of its powers. These stories are blessed with a keen sense of place, attuned to the rhythms of both small-town India and rapidly expanding mega-cities like Delhi or Mumbai. Homesick yuppies reconnect with their hometowns, old lovers reconcile against all odds, and parents learn to get along with their grown-up children. A mother-in-law uses questionable tactics to bond with her distant daughter-in-law, a war widow learns to stand up to family, and a life-threatening mountain slope brings two strangers together. These are fresh, untamed voices aided and abetted by a master storyteller.🌸 #malaysia #booklover #bookstagram #musthave #readingforlife #readergram #readreadread #shortstories #seriousreading #lightreading #mustread  #manuscriptsbymukthi #bestseller

Missing Presumed Dead  @ Kiran Manral • RM 74.00 😁 N E W • • Paperback • 260+ pgs • Jul 2018 Pub • • Preordered • Patience Necessary • ❄ D M • U S •  2 • P U R C H A S E ❄ 🌷 In a dysfunctional marriage, it may seem convenient when the wife commits suicide, but things aren’t always what they seem. Battling both a fractured marriage and the monsters in her cranium, Aisha leads a sequestered life on the outskirts of a town in the hills of North India. She struggles to stay functional and tries to wean herself off the pills that keep her from tipping over the edge. Meanwhile, Prithvi, the husband she once loved, seems as eager to be rid of her, as she is to flee from him. Only her children keep her tethered to her hearth. One rainy afternoon, Heer, Aisha's half-sister, her father's illegitimate daughter from another woman, appears. Despite her misgivings, Aisha goes into town and never comes back. Seemingly unperturbed, Heer slips into her missing sister's shoes effortlessly, taking charge of the house, the kids-even Prithvi, who responds to her overtures willingly. A note found in Aisha's wallet states that she has killed herself, although strange happenings leave room for doubts. But, if she is not dead, where is Aisha? Did she really commit suicide? has she been abducted or is she hiding? Why does Prithvi not grieve for his deceased wife? And why does Heer vanish without a trace one day, leaving no forwarding address? Examining the destruction a dystopian marriage and mental illness leave in their wake, 'Missing Presumed Dead' confronts the fragility of relationships, the ugly truths about love and death and the horrifying loss of everything we hold dear, including ourselves.🌷 #malaysia #booklover #bookstagram #musthave #readingforlife #readergram #readreadread #thrillerbooks #seriousreading #mustread  #manuscriptsbymukthi #bestseller

The Kamba Ramayana  @ Kamban @ Translated by PS Sundaram • RM 82.00 😁 N E W • • Paperback • 4010+ pgs • Pub 2002 • 🔥 R E A D Y • S T O C K • L I M I T E D 🔥 • Cover page may differ - slightly • ❄ D M • U S •  2 • P U R C H A S E ❄ 📚 Collector's Item 📚 🌹 A masterly translation of the Tamil version of Ramayana the epic story of Rama, which is part of the Indian collective consciousness, has been retold in many regional languages. Pre-eminent among the many vernacular retellings of the Ramayana is the twelfth-century Tamil version by Kamban. The son of a temple drummer, Kamban is reputed to have had an impressive mastery of Tamil and Sanskrit classics. Fascinated by the lore of Ramayana, he immersed himself totally in it. Though Kamban acknowledges his indebtedness to the Sanskrit version of the Ramayana by Valmiki, his is an independent work, enriched by various religious, philosophical and literary influences. The Kamba Ramayana differs from Valmiki’s in significant ways. Though cast in the heroic mould of a Purushotama or ‘the best among men’, Valmiki’s Rama is still a man. Kamban, on the other hand, never allows the reader to forget the godhood of Rama. His Ravana too, though flawed, is a heroic figure. While Valmiki’s diction is sparse and direct, Kamban’s exuberant prose sparkles with wit and inventiveness. Translated into English by the late P.S. Sundaram, this edition has been abridged and edited by his long-time friend N.S. Jagannathan. Though pared down from the original six volumes to a single one, this translation retains the magic and poetry of the original.🌹 #malaysia #booklover #bookstagram #musthave #readingforlife #readergram #readreadread #mythology #seriousreading #mustread  #manuscriptsbymukthi #bestseller

Selected Poems (English) @ Subramania Bharati @ Translated by Usha Rajagopalan • RM 78.00 😁 N E W • • Paperback • 170+ pgs • 2012 Pub • • Preordered • Patience Necessary • ❄ D M • U S •  2 • P U R C H A S E ❄ 🌹 In the melody that is heard all day long, In the teeming city and in nature's wilderness, In all these notes I have lost myself.' Honoured at a public function when he was a mere boy of eleven with the title 'Bharati' (one blessed by Saraswati, the Goddess of Learning), C. Subramania Bharati (1882-1921) is renowned as the herald of the renaissance of Tamil literature.The simplicity and lyricism that marked his poetry reflect a clear shift in sensibility and craft from the classical tradition, which had adhered to strictures of style, imagery and language for over 2000 years. Ranging from the fiercely patriotic and the deeply romantic, to the humbling intensity of devotion and the sharp criticism of self and society, this selection brings together poems that reflect the very essence of Bharati's broad philosophy. 🌹 #malaysia #booklover #bookstagram #musthave #readingforlife #readergram #readreadread #poetry #notsoancientwisdom #seriousreading #mustread  #manuscriptsbymukthi #bestseller
