To best understand and address the inequality in India today, Arundhati Roy insists we must examine both the political development and influence of M.K. Gandhi and why B.R. Ambedkar's brilliant challenge to his near-divine status was suppressed by India's elite. In Roy's analysis, we see that Ambedkar's fight for justice was systematically sidelined in favor of policies that reinforced caste, resulting in the current nation of India: independent of British rule, globally powerful, and marked to this day by the caste system. This book situates Ambedkar's arguments in their vital historical context-namely, as an extended public political debate with Mohandas Gandhi. 'For more than half a century-throughout his adult life-[Gandhi's] pronouncements on the inherent qualities of black Africans, untouchables and the laboring classes remained consistently insulting,' writes Roy. 'His refusal to allow working-class people and untouchables to create their own political organizations and elect their own representatives remained consistent too.' In The Doctor and the Saint, Roy exposes some uncomfortable, controversial, and even surprising truths about the political thought and career of India's most famous and most revered figure. In doing so she makes the case for why Ambedkar's revolutionary intellectual achievements must be resurrected, not only in India but throughout the world.

In this book, I provide a practical solution for 'Annihilation of Caste' from India. I also provide practical solutions for all burning socio-economic problems of India. By writing this book, I appeal to all Indians to change their surname to Gandhi irrespective of their caste, creed and religion. This will stop any caste based discrimination in India immediately. I also appeal to government of India to waive off affidavit fees to change surname to Gandhi. To help all Indians to understand my ideas, I wrote this book in form of short stories. This is an unparalleled love story between Saint Kanha Kumar (recipient of "most honest Indian" certificate from UN, the best orator, best PhD student, best political leader, bestselling author in India) and Dr. Kana Gayyub (the best doctor, best journalist and most promising author in India). Love started in PANU Campus Hostel room. Love flourished in the demonetization bank queues. Would they be able to break the barrier of religion, politics and "cash crunch" and live happily ever after?

This is the compelling and inspirational true story of a medical doctor who lived in the 20th century and is now a canonized saint. Giuseppe Moscati, physician, medical researcher, and teacher in Naples, Italy, came from an aristocratic family and devoted his medical career to serving the poor. He was also a medical school professor, and a pioneer in the field of biochemistry whose research led to the discovery of insulin as a cure for diabetes. Moscati regarded his medical practice as a lay apostolate, a ministry to his suffering fellowmen. Before examining a patient or engaging in research he would place himself in the presence of God. Moscati treated poor patients free of charge, and would often send them home with an envelope containing a prescription and a 50-lire note. He could have pursued a brilliant academic career, taken a professorial chair and devoted more time to research, but he preferred to continue working with his beloved patients and to train dedicated interns. To his many medical students he taught by the witness of his life to practice their profession in a spirit of service, because "suffering should be treated not as just pain of the body, but as the cry of a soul, to whom another brother, the doctor, runs to with the ardent love of charity . . . They are the faces of Jesus Christ, and the Gospel precept urges us to love them as ourselves." "This man whom we will invoke as a saint of the universal Church appears to us as a concrete realization of the ideal of the Christian layman. Giuseppe Moscati, head physician of a hospital, a renowned researcher, a university instructor of human physiology and chemistry, performed his many and various tasks with all the commitment and seriousness that the practice of these delicate lay professions requires." - Pope John Paul II, Homily at the Canonization of Giuseppe Moscati

The jazz cats call him Saint Sullivan, but he’s far from pious. Musician Barry Sullivan drinks too much, can’t keep a job, and fights with his fiery Mexican wife. Ceci, their young daughter, witnesses their fury from the shadows. The child finds comfort with plaster saints and the spirits of her ancestors—until a tragic accident threatens her body and soul. Great-aunt Pilar fears the Evil Eye and decides to intervene, taking Ceci and her family to a traditional Mexican healer, a curandera. Even in the ultra-modern Los Angeles of 1960, ancient ways survive in the barrio. The curandera prescribes an unconventional pharmacopeia of folk remedies, compassion, humor, and stories, which charm the ailing child. Barry is caught between two worlds—the jazz scene, where he speaks the lingo, and the barrio, where he is a clueless foreigner stumbling into a dangerous feud. He teeters on the brink of peril, while the curandera asks of him a sacrifice few men of the era know how to make, even for the sake of love.

Maigret's past comes to life in this vivid new translation of this evocative novel, set in the Inspector's home town. Book thirteen in the new Penguin Maigret series. Maigret savoured the sensations of his youth again: the cold, stinging eyes, frozen fingertips, an aftertaste of coffee. Then, stepping inside the church, a blast of heat, soft light; the smell of candles and incense. The last time Maigret went home to the village of his birth was for his father's funeral. Now an anonymous note predicting a crime during All Souls' Day mass draws him back there, where troubling memories resurface and hidden vices are revealed. Penguin is publishing the entire series of Maigret novels in new translations. This novel has been published in a previous translation as Maigret Goes Home. 'Compelling, remorseless, brilliant' John Gray 'One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century . . . Simenon was unequalled at making us look inside, though the ability was masked by his brilliance at absorbing us obsessively in his stories' Guardian 'A supreme writer . . . unforgettable vividness' Independent

It is 1953 in the tight-knit Italian neighborhood in Wilmington, Delaware. Maddalena Grasso has lost her country, her family, and the man she loved by coming to America; her mercurial husband, Antonio, has lost his opportunity to realize the American Dream; their new friend, Guilio Fabbri, a shy accordion player, has lost his beloved parents.

With great authenticity and immediacy, The Saint of Lost Things evokes a bittersweet time in which the world seemed more intimate and knowable, and the American Dream simpler, nobler, and within reach.
