This India album brings together over twenty years of Raghu Rai's work in color. Trained in the competitive melee of Indian newspaper photography, Raghu delighted his editors from the earliest days of his career by returning from assignments with images that were different, expressing in dramatic form and intensity the essence of the story -- and capturing human emotions in images that imprinted themselves on the conscience of India. For Raghu Rai India is a continuum of heightened experience and he savors each moment by intensely observing details in the kaleidoscope of humanity and nature, the changing forms and colors and patters that move and reshape themselves until they present an image that satisfies his critical and masterly eye. "India is to be experienced," he tells young, aspiring photo-journalists. "Only then can your photographs have meaning." His India is everyday India -- the life of his rural childhood. His photographs talk about the simple people, the village people, the rituals and routines that make up the rhythm of their days, their spiritual fervor, their dignity and sense of color and self-adornment as well as the earthy beauty of their humble homes and the unconscious artistry of their agricultural labor. This album is his personal experience of India -- his reflection of the land that continues to absorb and surprise and satisfy his continuous creative search.

Burning The Dead

Burning the Dead traces the evolution of cremation in India and the South Asian diaspora across the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Through interconnected histories of movement, space, identity, and affect, it examines how the so-called traditional practice of Hindu cremation on an open-air funeral pyre was culturally transformed and materially refashioned under British rule, following intense Western hostility, colonial sanitary acceptance, and Indian adaptation. David Arnold examines the critical reception of Hindu cremation abroad, particularly in Britain, where India formed a primary reference point for the cremation debates of the late nineteenth century, and explores the struggle for official recognition of cremation among Hindu and Sikh communities around the globe. Above all, Arnold foregrounds the growing public presence and assertive political use made of Hindu cremation, its increasing social inclusivity, and its close identification with Hindu reform movements and modern Indian nationhood.

Raghu Rai, India`s best known photographer, first shot a series of memorable photo essays on the masters of Indian classical music for India Today magazine in the mid- 980s. Since then, he has ever stopped shooting them in concerts, in their homes, with their gurus, and in special locations. Rai profiles only thirteen masters the greatest of the great nayak musicians who went much beyond their gharanas and broke new ground with their approach to music. They include Ravi Shankar, Ali Akbar Khan, M.S. Subbulakshmi, Mallikarjun Mansur, Kumar Gandharva, S. Balchander, Alla Rakha, Zakir Hussain, Vilayat Khan, Bismillah Khan, Kishori Amonkar, Hari Prasad Chaurasia and Bhimsen Joshi. Eight of these masters have passed away, so these portraits in turn affectionate, intense, playful, and reverent will remain their definitive ones, a precious and unsurpassable record of Indian musical heritage. Only a true rasik like Rai could have taken these pictures, for they required someone who possessed not only an understanding of classical music but also complete humility. Both aspects are evident in the extraordinary images that follow. The book is accompanied by a perceptive text written by noted writer and music expert Ashok Vajpeyi, chairman of Lalit Kala Akademi. His profiles of these musicians show what makes them great, alongside giving us remarkable snapshots of their lives, on and off the stage. A fonder photographic tribute to the custodians of Indian classical music could not have been possible. This is undoubtedly a collector`s edition.
