Ravi Chandra Singh is the last guy you'd expect to become a private detective. A failed religious scholar, he now works for Golden Sentinels, an upmarket London private investigations agency. His colleagues are a band of gleefully amoral and brilliant screw-ups: Ken and Clive, brutal ex-cops who are also a couple; Mark Chapman, a burned-out stoner hiding a great mind; Marcie Holder, a cheerful former publicist; Benjamin Lee, a techie prankster from South London; David Okri, an ambitious lawyer from a well-connected Nigerian family; and Olivia Wong, an upper-class Hong Kong financial analyst hiding her true skills as one of the most dangerous hackers in the world - all under the watchful eye of Roger Golden, wheeler-dealer extraordinaire, and his mysterious office manager, Cheryl Hughes. Thrust into a world where the rich, famous, and powerful hire him to solve their problems and wash their dirty laundry, Ravi finds himself in over his head with increasingly bizarre and complex cases - and the visions that he's been having of Hindu gods aren't helping. As Ravi struggles to stay ahead of danger, he wonders if the things he's seeing are a delusion - or if he might, in fact, be an unrecognised shaman of the modern world.... 1. Language: English.

British India ultimately covered some 54 percent of the landmass and 77 percent of the population. By the time the British began to contemplate a withdrawal from India, 565 princely states were officially recognized, in addition to thousands of zamindaris and jagirs, which were in effect feudal estates. The stature of each princely state was defined by the number of guns fired in salute upon a ceremonial occasion honoring one or other of the princes. These ranged from nine-gun to 21-gun salutes and, in a great many cases, no salute at all.The princely states were reasonably evenly spread between ancient Muslim and Hindu dynasties, but bearing in mind the minority status of Muslims in India, Muslims were disproportionately represented. This tended to grant Muslims an equally disproportionate share of what power was devolved to local leaderships, and it positioned powerful Muslim leaders to exert a similarly unequal influence on British policy.It stands to reason, therefore, as India began the countdown to independence after World War II, that the Indian Muslim leadership would begin to express anxiety over the prospect of universal suffrage and majority rule. At less than 20 percent of the population, Indian Muslims would inevitably find themselves overwhelmed by the Hindu majority, and as the British prepared to divest themselves of India, ancient enmities between Hindu and Muslim, long papered over by the secular and remote government of Britain, began once again to surface.While the conflict between India and Pakistan is multifaceted, there has always been great division over the Punjab. The word “Punjab” derives from the Persian words “Punj”, meaning “five”, and “äb”, meaning "river", combined into the “Land of the Five Rivers”. These rivers are the five major tributaries of the River Indus - the Jehlum, the Chenab, the Ravi, the Beas, and the Sutlej. They flow southwest off the southern slopes of the Himalay 1.

Londonstani

'Londonstani', Gautam Malkani's electrifying debut, reveals a Britain that has never before been explored in the novel: a country of young Asians and white boys (desis and goras) trying to work out a place for themselves in the shadow of the divergent cultures of their parents' generation. Set close to the Heathrow feed roads of Hounslow, Malkani shows us the lives of a gang of four young men: Hardjit the ring leader, a Sikh, violent, determined his caste stay pure; Ravi, determinedly tactless, a sheep following the herd; Amit, whose brother Arun is struggling to win the approval of his mother for the Hindu girl he has chosen to marry; and Jas who tells us of his journey with these three, desperate to win their approval, desperate too for Samira, a Muslim girl, which in this story can only have bad consequences. Together they cruise the streets in Amit's enhanced Beemer, making a little money changing the electronic fingerprints on stolen mobile phones, a scam that leads them into more dangerous waters. Funny, crude, disturbing, written in the vibrant language of its protagonists -- a mix of slang, Bollywood, texting, Hindu and bastardised gangsta rap -- 'Londonstani' is about many things: tribalism, aggressive masculinity, integration, cross-cultural chirpsing techniques, the urban scene seeping into the mainstream, bling bling economics, 'complicated family-related shit'. It is one of the most surprising British novels of recent years.

Kashmir, Gujarat, and the Punjab: The Ancient a...

Gujarat is one of the most storied sites in a storied area. Many groups and empires ruled India or tried to, and Gujarat was the power center for the region’s oldest of all, the Indus Valley Civilization. It also played an instrumental role in India’s greatest ancient empire. During the last centuries of the first millennium BCE, most of the Mediterranean basin and the Near East were either directly or indirectly under the influence of Hellenism. Although some of the Hellenistic kingdoms proved to be powerful in their own rights, no single one ever proved to be dominant. They battled each other for supremacy and attempted to claim new lands, especially to the east, in lands that the Greeks referred to generally as India. But a dynasty came to power that put most of the Indian subcontinent under the rule of one king.At less than 20 percent of the population, Indian Muslims would inevitably find themselves overwhelmed by the Hindu majority, and as the British prepared to divest themselves of India, ancient enmities between Hindu and Muslim began once again to surface. At the heart of the geopolitical dispute that resulted is Kashmir, which has often been described as the most beautiful place on earth, but also the most dangerous. Nestled between the Karakoram mountains to the north and the Himalayas to the south, the Vale of Kashmir is a place of mythic beauty, in part the inspiration for James Hilton’s Shangri-La, and certainly one of the most unspoiled and lovely regions of South Asia. It also, however, happens to be the fault line of a bitter conflict between two major regional powers, India and Pakistan.While the conflict is multifaceted, there has always been great division over the Punjab. The word Punjab derives from the Persian words Punj, meaning “five”, and äb, meaning river, combined into the “Land of the Five Rivers”. These rivers are the five major tributaries of the River Indus - the Jehlum, the Chenab, the Ravi, the 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Johnston.

The book is a result of 2 years of my research at a prestigious institute of India - Banaras Hindu University, along with my guide Prof. Ravi Tandon and co-guide Dr. SP Mishra. Diabetes and hypertension are two most common non-communicable diseases affecting the human race. India has a huge number of people affected with these two diseases. There have been a lot of studies on type-II diabetes and also on hypertension but studies are scanty when both the diseases are present in the same person. So we designed and conducted a study to look into the status of oxidative stress (major culprit of organ damage) and antioxidants (the protective entity) in the Indian population.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Sri is a Sanskrit word, with a primary meaning of radiance, or diffusing light. It is often used as a title of veneration. In Sanskrit grammar, Sri has the feminine gender but nowadays it is used as a masculine name prefix, equivalent to ''Mister'' in English. It is gender-specific in Sanskrit, but the assumption that it is masculine has resulted in the titles of Shrimati (abbreviated Smt) for married women and Sushri for women (independent of marital status). Sri, along with the forms Srimati and Susri, is often used by Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs and Jains as a respectful affix to the names of celebrated or revered persons. There is a common practice of writing r as first word centralised in line at the beginning of a document. Another usage is as an emphatic compound (which can be used in multiple: sri sri, or sri sri sri, etc.) in princely styles, notably in Darbar Sri, Desai Shri, and Thakur Sri or as in Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, a Hindu spiritual Guru and leader.
