From Zeus and Europa, to Diana, Pan, and Prometheus, the
myths of ancient Greece and Rome seem to exert a timeless
power over us. But what do those myths represent, and why
are they so enduringly fascinating? Why do they seem to
be such a potent way of talking about ourselves, our
origins, and our desires? This imaginative and stimulating
book goes beyond a simple retelling of the stories to
explore the rich history and diverse interpretations of
classical myths. It is a wide-ranging account, examining
how classical myths are used and understood in both high
art and popular culture, taking the reader from the
temples of Crete to skyscrapers in New York, and finding
classical myths in a variety of unexpected places: from
Arabic poetry and Hollywood films, to psychoanalysis, the
bible, and New Age spiritualism.

In this book, bureaucrat extraordinaire D.N. Ghosh offers
an eyewitness account of perhaps the most important event
in India-s banking history post-Independence, baring the
manoeuvrings behind the enabling ordinance and the pickle
over fair compensation for the dispossessed bank
owners.But that-s not all. Years later, he enters the
portals of the State Bank of India as its chairman, at a
time when the stirrings of change have just begun to be
felt in the Indian economy. Anticipating the future, he
goes for a paradigm shift: to rid -profit- of its -dirty
word- tag and place it at the core of the bank-s
operating strategy. Gradually, he takes SBI into the
capital markets, establishes its credit standing
globally, launches India-s first mutual fund and, above
all, cajoles the trade unions into accepting full
computerization.Post-retirement, he steps into the
corporate world. During this period he deals with
scarcely veiled threats from a mighty corporate house and
even finds himself verbally assaulted by the promoter of
an erstwhile bank. In between, the could-have-been-
academic tills the soil for certain reputable management
institutes to bloom and grow even as he sets up the
credit rating agency, ICRA.

On 21 November 1963, the first rocket took off from
Thumba, a fishing hamlet near Thiruvananthapuram,
announcing the birth of India-s space programme. The
rocket, the payload, the radar, the computer, the
helicopter - all that was required for the launch - came
from outside the country. Fifty years later, on 5
November 2013, when ISRO launched its Mars Orbiter
Mission (MOM) from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre,
Sriharikota, all of it had been indigenously
manufactured. Ten months after the launch, on 24
September 2014, India became the first country in the
world to put a satellite around the Red Planet in the
very first attempt.From Fishing Hamlet to Red Planet
tracks this stupendous journey through articles,
interviews and reminiscences with contributions from
intellectual giants like Dr Vikram Sarabhai, Satish
Dhawan, M.S. Swaminathan, Jacques Blamont, Dr A.P.J.
Abdul Kalam, U.R. Rao and Dr K. Kasturirangan, among
others, this is the story of India-s space journey from
its modest beginnings to its rendezvous with Mars.

The early 21st century has witnessed an erosion of trust
in business leaders - in their capacity to deliver
sustained growth and in the integrity which underpins
their decisions. In responding to these challenges, this
book puts forward a new leadership paradigm, asserting
that relationships are the primary asset of a business.
Drawing on a diverse array of case stories from their
coaching work, the authors demonstrate how successful
leaders apply touch point principles to building critical
business relationships - between individuals, teams and
business entities - with significant results. They
provide a developmental framework through which
individuals can scrutinise their own leadership, inject
it with new life and meaning and release the energy and
creativity necessary for collective learning and growth.

Over the past four decades, a series of PR campaigns have
helped to shape popular culture and influence public
opinion. This book provides the inside story on the
pivotal PR campaigns of the past four decades, following
and celebrating the maturation and expansion of the PR
industry towards today-s practice. It examines ten of
these campaigns in detail from the 1970s to the present
day: - explaining their strategy and tactics - looking at
the imagery and icons they created - interviewing the
powerful, flamboyant personalities who crafted and
executed these seminal projects. Each chapter is built
around extended case studies including Thatcherism
(1979), New Labour, The Royal Family, The Rolling Stones
(1981), David Beckham, London 2012, Product [RED], The
Obama Campaign (2008) and Dove Real Beauty. Featuring
campaigns by Saatchi and Saatchi, Bell Pottinger, Ogilvy,
Freuds, Pitch and other well-known agencies, Campaigns
that Shook the World grapples with PR-s uneasy place at
the nexus of politics and celebrity, holding the best
campaigns up to scrutiny and showcasing just how powerful
PR can be as an instrument of change, for the good, and
at times for the less than good. It contains insights
from Alastair Campbell, Lord Tim Bell, Alan Edwards,
Paddy Harverson, Matthew Freud and many others.

This book explores comedy both as a literary genre, and
as a range of non-literary phenomena, experiences and
events. The author studies the classics of comic drama,
prose fiction and poetry, alongside forms of pantomime,
comic opera, silent cinema, popular music, Broadway
shows, music-hall, stand-up and circus acts, rom-coms,
sketch shows, sit-coms, caricatures, and cartoons. Taking
in scenes from Aristophanes to The Office, from the Roman
Saturnalia to Groundhog Day, he also considers comic
theory from Aristotle to Freud and beyond, tracing how
comic achievements have resisted as well as confirmed
theory across the ages. This book takes comedy seriously
without taking it solemnly, and offers an engaging study
of the comic spirit which lies at the heart of our shared
social and cultural life. .

This book breaks new ground as it critiques Tagore-s non-
conformism, radical outlook and occasional ambivalence as
seen in his novels and short stories. In its re-readings
of his works, it meticulously analyses issues such as
sexual desire, repression, and jealousy on the one hand,
and nation, politics, family and gender on the other. It
also shows how, amidst changing social structures, his
women protagonists are motivated by promptings of self-
discovery and self-realisation, as well as a compulsive
need to recreate their identities. The book includes
readings from selected film versions of Tagore-s fiction.
These trace the deviations from the original texts to
highlight how pre- and post-independence Indian/Bengali
film-makers have appropriated Tagore-s literary texts by
emphasising gender positions, the politics of the sexualised
body and body images.

For four centuries Britain was an integral part of the
Roman Empire, a political system stretching from Turkey
to Portugal and from the Red Sea to the Tyne and beyond.
Its involvement with Rome started long before the
Conquest launched by the Emperor Claudius in 43 AD and it
continued to be a part of the Roman world for some time
after the final break with Roman rule. Bringing together
archaeological investigation and historical scholarship,
the author explores some of the key issues arising from
this period in Britain-s history, discussing the question
of identity at this time and analysing the importance of
widespread literacy in Roman Britain. Covering the period
from Julius Caesar-s first forays into Britain and
Claudius- subsequent conquest, as well as Britain under
the later Roman Empire, he outlines the key events of
this time period, providing a focus on society in Roman
Britain and offering a thoughtful consideration of the
aftermath of Roman rule.
