in building and sustaining the modern nation. It examines
a particular expression of nation and manliness :
masculine Hinduism. This ideal, which emerged from
India-s experience of British imperialism, is
characterized by marital prowess, muscular strength,
moral fortitude, and a readiness to go to battle.

This book takes the "disappearance" as a starting point
to examine a history of untouchable migration amongst
Indians who arrived in Singapore from its modern founding
as a British colony in the early nineteenth century
through to its independence in 1965. It examines the
lives of untouchable migrants through their everyday
experience in an overseas multi-ethnic environment. It
examines how these migrants who in many ways occupied the
bottom rungs of their communities and colonial society,
framed transnational issues of identity and social
justice in relation to their experiences within the
broader Indian diaspora in Singapore. The book trances
the manner in which untouchable identities evolved and
then receded in response to the dramatic social changes
brought about by colonialism, war and post-colonial

The aim of the book is to understand how India-s Unique
Identification Number (Aadhaar) will make the poor free.
Although Aadhaar-s contribution to food security,
employment generation, education, and public health is
rather modest, it does create a platform for the
financial inclusion of the poor. Through this platform,
Aadhaar brings to the poor government subsidies directly
in cash, and thus gives them the wherewithal for being
consumers for the market. Through its focus on the
process dimensions, the book succeeds in providing a
stronger understanding of public policy processes in the

Asia-s civil servants, but remained a strictly impartial,
straightforward and incorruptible officer of - as he
formulated it himself - the - vernacular type-.

emerging on-demand platforms. He considers how this new
paradigm changes economic growth and the future of work.

In this book, the author cuts through the chatter to
focus on disruption in its initial use as a business
term, identifying new ways to understand it and
suggesting new tools to manage it. He looks at companies
that have proven resilient and those that have fallen,
and explains why some companies have successfully managed
disruption-Fujifilm and Canon, for example-and why some
like Blockbuster and Encyclopedia Britannica have not.
The author identifies two kinds of disruption: demand-
side, when successful firms focus on their main customers
and underestimate market entrants with innovations that
target niche demands, and supply-side, when firms focused
on developing existing competencies become incapable of
developing new ones. He shows business leaders how to
choose their strategy so their firms can deal with
disruption while continuing to innovate.
