Stephen Alter: An American Author

Stephen Alter (born 1956) is an American author, primarily of non-fiction but also of fiction, who was born and raised in India, where he grew up as the son of missionaries. Accordingly, he was a Third Culture Kid (TCK), and his writings are generally described as Indo-nostalgic. His childhood was spent primarily in the small British Raj-era hill station of Landour in the Lower Western Himalaya -- which has, conveniently, provided a catchy title for one of his more successful (autobiographical) titles: "All the Way to Heaven: An American Boyhood in the Himalayas". Attention-grabbing titles would appear to be an Alter hallmark -- "Sacred Waters: A Pilgrimage Up the Ganges River" is another of his titles. More Info

Shakespeare: An English Writer

William Shakespeare is considered by many to be the greatest writer in the English language, as well as one of the greatest in Western literature, and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. For over 400 years, his work has been performed, read and analysed by millions.

Shakespeare is believed to have produced most of his work between 1586 and 1616, although the exact dates and chronology of the plays attributed to him are often uncertain. He is counted among the very few playwrights who have excelled in both tragedy and comedy, and his plays combine popular appeal with complex characterisation, poetic grandeur and philosophical depth.

Matthew MacDonald is one of my favorite technical authors so I was very happy to hear that he was writing a book on WPF. I've been a big fan of one of his other books (Pro ASP.NET 2.0 in C# 2005) for many years. I use it like a bible. To cut to the chase, Matthew has done it again. Pro WPF, though doesn't fit in your pocket very well since it's 980 pages is great. It carefully explains topics in WPF that are not easy to explain. I have to say I did not understand dependency properties very well until I read that section and it really cleared things up for me. Read More

D. H. Lawrence: An English Books Writer

David Herbert Richards Lawrence (11 September 1885 – 2 March 1930) was an English writer of the early 20th century, whose prolific and diverse output included novels, short stories, poems, plays, essays, travel books, paintings, translations, and literary criticism. His collected works represent an extended reflection upon the dehumanizing effects of modernity and industrialization. In them, Lawrence confronts issues relating to emotional health and vitality, spontaneity, human sexuality and instinct.

Lawrence's opinions earned him many enemies and he endured official persecution, censorship, and misrepresentation of his creative work throughout the second half of his life, much of which he spent in a voluntary exile he called his "savage pilgrimage."[1] At the time of his death, his public reputation was that of a pornographer who had wasted his considerable talents. E. M. Forster, in an obituary notice, challenged this widely held view, describing him as, "The greatest imaginative novelist of our generation." More Info

Thomas Hardy: An English Novelist

Thomas Hardy, OM (2 June 1840 – 11 January 1928) was an English novelist, short story writer, and poet of the naturalist movement, though Thomas Hardyhe saw himself as a poet and wrote novels mainly for financial gain only. The bulk of his work, set mainly in the semi-fictional land of Wessex, delineates characters struggling against their passions and circumstances. Hardy's poetry, first published in his fifties, has come to be as well regarded as his novels, especially after The Movement of the 1950s and 1960s.

Thomas Hardy was born at Higher Bockhampton, a hamlet in the parish of Stinsford to the east of Dorchester in Dorset, England. His father worked as a stonemason and local builder. His mother was ambitious and well read and for the most part, educated Thomas as a boy until he went to his first school at Bockhampton at age 8. His schooling ended at the age of 16 when he became apprenticed to John Hicks, a local architect. Hardy trained as an architect in Dorchester before moving to London in 1862. There he enrolled as a student at King's College London. He won prizes from the Royal Institute of British Architects and the Architectural Association. He never truly felt at home in London and when he returned five years later to Dorset he decided to dedicate himself to writing. More Information

Murphet and his wife travelled to India to visit the international headquarters of the Theosophical Society in Adyar, Madras and also wanted to discover if there was any deeper spiritual dimension in the life of modern India.

During those days, it was a very difficult journey to the village of Puttaparthi; he had to travel by bus from Madras to Bangalore, followed by journey through roads of broken rocks ending with a ride on bullock-cart, or on foot across slushy fields of paddy.

One of the first people he met at the ashram was Narayana Kasturi. During the next few days, he was invited to several group interviews. Read More

Joseph Conrad: An English Novelist

Joseph Conrad (born Jozef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski, 3 December 1857 – 3 August 1924) was a Polish-born English novelist. Many critics Joseph Conradregard him as one of the greatest novelists in the English language—a fact that is remarkable as he did not learn to speak English fluently until he was in his twenties (and always with a Polish accent).

Conrad is recognized as a master prose stylist. Some of his works have a strain of romanticism, but more importantly he is recognized as an important forerunner of modernist literature. His narrative style and anti-heroic characters have influenced many writers, including Ernest Hemingway, D. H. Lawrence, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Graham Greene, William S. Burroughs, Joseph Heller, V.S. Naipaul, Italo Calvino and J. M. Coetzee. Read More

Ashok Desai: An Indian Books Author

Ashok Desai  shows how Indias industrial structure differs from the structure in industrial countries, and how the proliferation of small firms leads to a fragmentation of the Indian demand for technology and cuts down the benefits of technology imports.

Martin Bell and Don Scott-Kemmis wonder whether a commercial and shortsighted approach to technology imports leads Indian firms to miss opportunities of growth and exports.

Charles Cooper finds that multinational corporations are happier with their experience than smaller exporters of technology to India, and asks whether Indian policies and procedures favour big firms against small and reduce technology supply to India.

Osho: A Professor Of Philosophy

"Rajneesh" Chandra Mohan Jain (December 11, 1931 – January 19, 1990), also known as Acharya Rajneesh from the 1960s onwards, callingOsho himself Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh during the 1970s and 1980s and taking the name Osho in 1989, was an Indian mystic and spiritual teacher.

A professor of philosophy, he travelled throughout India in the 1960s as a public speaker, raising controversy by speaking against socialism, Mahatma Gandhi and institutionalised religion. He advocated a more open attitude towards sexuality, a stance that earned him the sobriquet "sex guru" in the Indian and later the international press. In 1970, he settled for a while in Mumbai (Bombay). He began initiating disciples (known as neo-sannyasins) and took on the role of a spiritual teacher. In his discourses, he reinterpreted writings of religious traditions, mystics and philosophers from around the world. Moving to Pune (Poona) in 1974, he established an ashram that attracted increasing numbers of Westerners. Read More
