Description
About the Book

DAULAT DARBAR is an autobiographical account of a common Indian citizen who worked in the Railways in various positions-from that of a simple marker of packages to a station master. From his vantage point can be seen the social change that India has undergone in the past eight decades, particularly in Mewar-a former princely state in southern Rajasthan. Simply told, this story is an anthropological exercise exemplifying the use of the life-history technique combined with participant observation for more than 50 years!! This was possible because the author of Daulat Darbar happens to be the son of the principal character of the story.

The reader, as he goes along, will smoothly move from the past to the present. He will get a glimpse of old Mewar-its villages and the capital city, of the caste structure, of life in roadside railway stations. He will see the process of upward ascendancy of a lower middle class Brahman family, and the crises of values and conflict of generations that characterize a modern parvenu family. A good sociological case study, an anthropological life history, the book reads like a novel.

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
