Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs₹499.00Add to CartBuy Now
Uncover the secrets of the universe with the original New York Times bestselling book from the world’s most respected astrological authority.
Embark on your cosmic path to self-discovery with this comprehensive guide to the twelve signs of the zodiac.
Your sun sign is determined by the day and month of your birth and dictates your zodiac personality. Taking each of the twelve signs in turn, world famous astrologer Linda Goodman explains the importance of the sun – the most powerful of all stellar bodies – in astrology. She describes the characteristics of each sign and how these can be used to really get to know the men, women, children, bosses and employees in your life. This newfound knowledge allows us to feel closer to one another and to understand that, as Goodman says, ‘Not all Capricorns are meek, not all Leos are outwardly domineering and not all Virgos are virgins.’ Learn all this and much, much more from the world-famous astrologer who has helped millions divine their way to success, happiness and love by studying the sun signs.
Before publication of Sun Signs in 1968, astrology as we know it had a very limited following in the United States and around the world. With this book, Linda Goodman changed that forever, bringing metaphysical consciousness to millions of readers around the world for the first time. Newspapers began running astrology columns, and Goodman herself contributed to these in the larger mass circulation women’s magazines. An increasing number of people knew their sign and how to interpret the signs of others, introducing the study of astrological tendencies as we now know it.
501 FACTS FACTORY: AMAZING THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT SPACE₹299.00Add to CartBuy Now
Did you know * We’re moving through space at a speed of 3,000 km in ONE second! * The sun once had a twin! * When some stars die, they turn into black holes. Humans have been peering at the skies for ages, trying to figure out just what lies beyond us. And over these years, we’ve managed to figure out a lot of stuff. For instance, we now know that the Earth goes around the sun; and that the sun goes around a supermassive black hole. We’ve calculated the speed of light, the brightness of stars and the temperature of the universe at the very first moment of its existence. And there’s some stuff we’re still figuring out – like the quantum foam in an atom; the power of dark energy that’s fuelling the universe; the ingredients of the soup that once filled the universe. This book is filled with many such fascinating facts about our planet and our surroundings. You’ll learn about what makes up everything in the universe, from stars to you (hint: it’s the same stuff!). You’ll learn about our universe’s past and what might happen to it in the future. And you’ll learn about the scientists, astronomers and physicists who made these amazing discoveries (and weird mistakes) that help us make sense of all the mysteries around us.

THE NEXT ENLIGHTENMENT₹899.00Add to CartBuy Now
Do you feel that humanity is in crisis? We have all the tools to create a healthy, harmonious society. Advances in science, technology, management, human rights and democratic governance have ushered in an era of unprecedented accomplishment and prosperity. They have given us the means to greatly reduce suffering from disease, poverty and conflict. At the same time, the ideas and social covenants that brought us to this point seem unable to meet the challenges of our overpopulated, globalized world. Signs of dysfunction are all around us: racial, ethnic and religious hatred seem to be on the rise; our natural environment is degrading rapidly; violence and mass migrations threaten stability everywhere; and the gap between rich and poor only grows larger. In much of the world loneliness, depression, drug abuse and a profound sense of loss of purpose have become pervasive. How did we get here? The Next Enlightenment argues that most of humanity’s problems are the result of a limited level of consciousness – an underdeveloped capacity for self-awareness that encourages utilitarian, self-centred behaviour while curbing our higher faculties. From this understanding it presents a compelling case for an alternative future based on the development of consciousness. It is both a political manifesto and a practical manual on how to create social conditions that will allow each of us to achieve our true purpose and script a new future for humanity.

Detective Carl Mørck of Department Q is charged with solving the mystery. Back at headquarters, Carl and his team are under pressure to deliver results: failure to meet his superiors’ expectations will mean the end of Department Q. Solving the case, however, is not their only concern. After a breakdown, their colleague Rose is struggling to deal with the ghosts of her past – a past seemingly connected to one of the division’s most sinister case-files. It is up to Carl, Assad and Gordon to unearth the dark and violent truth plaguing Rose before it is too late.

* Easy-to-understand explanations of what constitutes a ‘workplace’, an ’employer’, how hostile work environments get created, and the obligations of employees, team leads and heads of organizations;
* Detailed key processes, from creating organizational policies to constituting anti-sexual harassment committees and handling complaints;
* Case studies illustrating roles and responsibilities of committee members for effective, unbiased redressal;
* Sample letters, reporting formats, outlines and draft policies to aid reporting for internal and external compliance.

SEARCHING FOR HOME₹399.00Add to CartBuy Now
A compelling chronicle of what it means to be Indian in a foreign land.
In an age when India is one of the strongest emerging markets and a developing superpower, tens of thousands of Indians leave the country each year to seek new lives on distant shores. What are they looking for and what do they really find?
In a first-of-its-kind narrative, journalist and American expat Simran Chawla documents the contemporary Indian immigrant experience in various corners of the world – from Alaska to the UK, Europe to Africa, the Americas to the Middle East. In this book, she tells the story of families like the Singhs who farm in the heartland of Italy just south of Verona; discovers the lucrative Indian wedding industry in the Gulf or United Arab Emirates; learns about the community of ?aunties’ in Orlando who have found meaning in their lives once again by organizing sewing get-togethers; watches a cricket match between diamond traders in Antwerp; and explores the heartbreaking price of living illegally in London.
In lucid, affecting prose, Searching for Home tells the stories of people who, though separated by thousands of kilometres, share experiences that continue to bind them to their homeland.
