One of our most brilliantly iconoclastic playwrights takes on the art of profession of acting with these words: invent nothing, deny nothing, speak up, stand up, stay out of school. Acting schools, “interpretation,” “sense memory,” “The Method”—David Mamet takes a jackhammer to the idols of contemporary acting, while revealing the true heroism and nobility of the craft. He shows actors how to undertake auditions and rehearsals, deal with agents and directors, engage audiences, and stay faithful to the script, while rejecting the temptations that seduce so many of their colleagues. Bracing in its clarity, exhilarating in its common sense,  True and False  is as shocking as it is practical, as witty as it is instructive, and as irreverent as it is inspiring.

Rabindranath Tagore wrote, "In love all the contradiction of existence merge themselves and are lost. Only in love are unity and duality not at variance. love must be one and two at the same time. Our heart ever changes its place till it finds love and then it has its rest. Bondage and liberation are not antagonistic in love, for love is most free and at the same time most bound."love is indeed the most complex and yet the most basic and universal emotion which is understood across all languages and whose expression often needs no words. But for those rare times when you do need words to express your love, dip into this selection of quotations expressing innumerable dimensions of।ove.

An enthralling retelling of India's greatest epic, the Mahabharata,  Jaya  seamlessly weaves into a single narrative plots from the Sanskrit classic as well as its many folk and regional variants. With clarity and simplicity, the tales in this elegant volume reveal the eternal relevance of the Mahabharata and the complex and disturbing meditation on the human condition that has shaped Indian thought for over 3000 years. Sita  approaches Ram and the Ramayana by speculating on the titular character: her childhood with her father, Janaka, who hosted sages mentioned in the Upanishads; her stay in the forest with her husband, who had to be a celibate ascetic while she was in the prime of her youth; her interactions with the women of Lanka, recipes she exchanged, the emotions they shared; her role as a goddess, the untamed Kali as well as the demure Gauri, in transforming the stoic prince of Ayodhya into God. The Bhagavata is the story of Krishna, known as Shyam to those who find beauty, wisdom and love in his dark complexion.  Shyam  tells the story of Krishna's birth and his death, bringing together the fragments of this great epic composed over thousands of years, first as the Harivamsa, then as the Bhagavata Purana, and finally as the passionate songs of poet-sages in various regional languages.
