In the spirit of Khaled Hosseini, Nadia Hashimi, and Shilpi Somaya Gowda comes this powerful debut from a talented new voice - a sweeping, emotional journey of two childhood friends in Mumbai, India, whose lives converge only to change forever one fateful night. India, 1986: Mukta, a 10-year-old village girl from the lower-caste Yellama cult, has come of age and must fulfill her destiny of becoming a temple prostitute, as her mother and grandmother did before her. In an attempt to escape her fate, Mukta is sent to be a house girl for an upper-middle class family in Mumbai. There she discovers a friend in the daughter of the family, high-spirited eight-year-old Tara, who helps her recover from the wounds of her past. Tara introduces Mukta to an entirely different world - one of ice cream, reading, and a friendship that soon becomes a sisterhood. But one night in 1993, Mukta is kidnapped from Tara's family home and disappears. Shortly thereafter, Tara and her father move to America. A new life in Los Angeles awaits them, but Tara never recovers from the loss of her best friend or stops wondering if she was somehow responsible for Mukta's abduction. Eleven years later Tara, now an adult, returns to India determined to find Mukta. As her search takes her into the brutal underground world of human trafficking, Tara begins to uncover long-buried secrets in her own family that might explain what happened to Mukta - and why she came to live with Tara's family in the first place. Moving from a traditional Indian village to the bustling modern metropolis of Mumbai to Los Angeles and back again, this is a heartbreaking and beautiful portrait of an unlikely friendship - a story of love, betrayal, and ultimately redemption. 1.

Random House presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of A State of Freedom by Neel Mukherjee. What happens when we attempt to exchange the life we are given for something better? Can we transform the possibilities we are born into? A State of Freedom prises open the central, defining events of our century - displacement and migration - but not as you imagine them. Five characters in very different circumstances, from a domestic cook in Mumbai to a vagrant and his dancing bear, and a girl who escapes terror in her home village for a new life in the city, find out the meanings of dislocation and the desire for more. Set in contemporary India and moving between the reality of this world and the shadow of another, this novel of multiple narratives - formally daring, fierce but full of pity - delivers a devastating and haunting exploration of the unquenchable human urge to strive for a different life. 1.

Home- based industries in India are small scale enterprises, labour intensive and capital saving in nature. They are a solution generated by opportunity deprived (poor or uneducated) families for their living, and sometimes are an important instrument for the growth in the city, like Mumbai, Ludhiana and various other Indian cities, including Meerut of Uttar Pradesh. In Meerut city, HBI proves that a house is not only for residential purpose only but also serves as a production place and market place. Both home and community derive vitality from the multiplicity of uses. In this book, an attempt has been made to develop a strategy on the basis of the problems identified and the existing situation. The findings of the study have revealed that the problems of the users/ inhabitants are multidimensional that cannot be isolated in terms of housing or economics alone. An interesting read for the Town Planners, Architects and Sociologists who think that planning framework and standards must result in affordable and sustainable housing for HBIs. This book s recommendations may guide the existing as well as new design parameters for the future settlements.
Scientific Study from the year 2014 in the subject Biology - Micro- and Molecular Biology, , course: Post Doctoral Research Work, language: English, abstract: Tylophora indica (family Asclepeadaceae) is experimental plant that has been used in the present study. The leaves and roots of Tylophora indica have emetic, cathartic, laxative, expectorant, diaphoretic and purgative properties.
