  • Kedarnath af Tapan Mukherjee Spar 18%
    - 32 Days Before Devastation
    af Tapan Mukherjee

    This book may be considered as a book of records, showing the glorious past of one of the holiest shrines of the Hindus Kedarnath. While filming the ceremonial events at Kedarnath, I had never dreamt of such massive destruction that was about to take place there just after thirty-two days. The temple surroundings, shops, roads, property and thousands of lives were destroyed by the horrifying rage of nature. It wont be incorrect to say that this book has now become a historical evidence of the beautiful Kedarnath. During my recent visit to Kedarnath on 5th October-2013, I sincerely appreciated the endeavors of the state government of Uttarakhand and Shri Badrinath Shri Kedarnath Temple Committee for restoring the traditional rituals and allowing the pilgrims to visit the Shrine. It is also true that the past glory of Kedarnath that you may find in this book is no more present and there is hardly any chance of it being seen again as before.

  • Homo Sapiens to Homo 'X' af Lawrence Nyaguti Ochieng. Spar 15%
    - Why Our Children and Youth Are Different from Us
    af Lawrence Nyaguti Ochieng.

    Each successive generation of mankind since archaic times has been shown to exhibit significant difference in aesthetics, social behavior and physiological make up. These changes are evolutionary. This book is therefore a study of humans since archaic times and the changes that have since occurred in man. It seeks to convince the world that from apelike, Homo habilis, Homo erectus, and then Homo sapiens, we are now Homo x. By exploiting Charles Darwins organic theory of evolution and recorded historical developments (social, cultural, and biological) to date, the research has proved that your child or the youth around you is most likely a higher evolved human species, or different from you. He or she is Homo x. The book highlights historical, climatic, technological, and cultural adaptation by Homo sapiens since the exit of Homo erectus, which has catapulted evolutionary transformation of man within the shortest period making Homo sapiens the fastest of the hominids in the evolution succession to have undergone complete evolution by explaining the differences in lifespan experience of each hominid. It is therefore intended to help transform our policy and legislative and cultural perspectives on nurturing our children with clear knowledge that they are indeed different from us!
