South Asia New in Fall 2014

New books for the Fall of 2014 from South Asia. Cook with new books, one the Jewels of the Nizam and the other "Oh! Calcuatta". History and politics - partition, colonial clubs, Ghadar, Habib on economics, Bengal Zamindar. Then social aspects of Anglo-Indians, Dalits, social scientists. Literature - Ruskin Bond and others English.  Delhi in the eyes of a Pakistani, Delhi's architecture, also Kolkata and Mushidabad.  A graphic book of the legend of Karna. Early portrait photography, and some stunning photos of tigers and an anthology of almost 100 writings (V. Thapar's Tiger Fire). Finally a kids' colorful picture book on Diwali.  And, of course, many more, too many to list. Check them out, have a look.
