Brown Girl Like Me
You might feel that this fight is too big for you. How on earth can you dismantle so many complex, long-standing systems of oppression? My answer: piece by piece. Brown Girl Like Me is an inspiring memoir and empowering manifesto that equips women with the confidence and tools they need to navigate the difficulties that come with an intersectional identity. Jaspreet Kaur unpacks key issues such as the media, the workplace, the home, education, mental health, culture, confidence and the body, to help South Asian women understand and tackle the issues that affect them, and help them be in the driving seat of their own lives. Jaspreet pulls no punches, tackling difficult topics from mental health and menstruation stigma to education and beauty standards, from feminism to cultural appropriation and microaggressions. She also addresses complex issues, such as how to manage being a brown feminist without rejecting your own culture, and why Asian girls – the second highest performing group of students in the country – aren't seen in larger numbers in universities and head offices. Interviews with brilliant South Asian Women of all walks of life as well as academic insight show what life is really like for brown women in the diaspora. Part toolkit, part call-to-arms, Brown Girl Like Me is essential reading for South Asian women as well as people with an interest in feminism and cultural issues, and will educate, inspire and spark urgent conversations for change.

See No Stranger

release date: Sep 07, 2021
See No Stranger
An urgent manifesto and a dramatic memoir of awakening, this is the story of revolutionary love. Finalist for the Dayton Literary Peace Prize • “In a world stricken with fear and turmoil, Valarie Kaur shows us how to summon our deepest wisdom.”—Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat Pray Love How do we love in a time of rage? How do we fix a broken world while not breaking ourselves? Valarie Kaur—renowned Sikh activist, filmmaker, and civil rights lawyer—describes revolutionary love as the call of our time, a radical, joyful practice that extends in three directions: to others, to our opponents, and to ourselves. It enjoins us to see no stranger but instead look at others and say: You are part of me I do not yet know. Starting from that place of wonder, the world begins to change: It is a practice that can transform a relationship, a community, a culture, even a nation. Kaur takes readers through her own riveting journey—as a brown girl growing up in California farmland finding her place in the world; as a young adult galvanized by the murders of Sikhs after 9/11; as a law student fighting injustices in American prisons and on Guantánamo Bay; as an activist working with communities recovering from xenophobic attacks; and as a woman trying to heal from her own experiences with police violence and sexual assault. Drawing from the wisdom of sages, scientists, and activists, Kaur reclaims love as an active, public, and revolutionary force that creates new possibilities for ourselves, our communities, and our world. See No Stranger helps us imagine new ways of being with each other—and with ourselves—so that together we can begin to build the world we want to see.

Further, it highlights the issues and questions relating to surrogacy arrangements that are so far unresolved and unanswered and suggests measures for improvements to the existing proposed surrogacy legislation in India and need for uniform international regulation.

Seeking Nanak
The eclectic mix of personal essays, poems and scholarly articles and the teachings of Guru Nanak that form this volume have come from contributors of not only the Sikh community in India, Pakistan and the diaspora, but also from people belonging to other faiths who have been touched by the mystique of the faith of Baba Nanak. By placing the personal records alongside with the scholarly insights into His teachings, what we have understood is that there is a Nanak for each one of us – a Nanak within each one of us – and it is this Nanak which abides in our consciousness and whom we need to seek out and discover. This book is, therefore, meant both for the initiated as well as the uninitiated. The lay readers will get a glimpse into the richness of thought and experience that an acquaintance with Guru Nanak brings with it. For the scholarly, the insights by the contributors who have dedicated their lives to an understanding of Sikhi will help in opening newer vistas of the Gurbani. The plurality of views expressed mirrors the free thinking and the respect for human beings and the upholding of human dignity that Nanakji propagated, practiced and stood for.

Brand New Nation
The early twenty-first century was an optimistic moment of global futures-making.

Brand New Nation reveals the on-the-ground experience of the relentless transformation of the nation-state into an attractive investment destination for global capital. The infusion of capital not only rejuvenates the nation, it also produces investment-fuelled nationalism, a populist energy that can be turned into a powerful instrument of coercion.

Dying Into Life
Death and loss are universal experiences, which we all face at some time in some form. For some, death is a wall, an ending; for others, it is a door, a beginning. For some, it is a tragedy for which they may never recover. For others, death and loss are an opportunity to make a change in their life for the better. How we experience death and loss is our choice. But, it sure takes some training. Dying into Life: The Yoga of Death, Loss, and Transformation offers you such a training. This book is a practical yogic guide to life, death, and transformation. It invites us to acknowledge that we all need to prepare for death as we are prepared and supported to be born. It teaches us that we can practice how to use our breath to maximize our energy in life and how to direct our energy in death. With practice, we can die with ease, grace, and fearlessness.This 2nd edition brings more materials, meditations, and reflections on topics such as The Infinite Exists Within, Karma, Dharma, Reincarnation, Heaven and Hell, Liberation While Alive, Types of Death, Children and Death, Spiritual Perspective on the Grief Process, Preparing for Death, Death Coaching, Leaving a Legacy, the Journey of the Soul, Developing a New Relationship with the Deceased, and Death Rituals. Besides helping yourself to train for your own death, the book includes how to help coach someone else in their death process, whether you are physically present or not. ------From the author's Preface Life is an unpredictable journey we all make, with death being the ultimate unknown. As we venture on our river of life, we encounter many things - joys, tragedies, gifts, and losses. Sometimes our way seems effortless, as though the current was carrying us with ease. Other times, the boulders in our way seem insurmountable and threatening. To bring meaning and try to make sense of this voyage, each of us has a belief system- our own boat - to more efficiently navigate our course.
