Title Author Summary
  Electromagnetic Field Theory

Kshetrimayum Rakhesh Singh

Electromagnetic Field Theory aims to give a solid foundation on electromagnetic fields, waves, and radiating systems. It is targeted as a textbook for electromagnetic field theory course for undergraduate electronics engineering students. Besides strong fundamentals on Maxwell's equations, this book provides in-depth discussion about the basics of electromagnetic waves (wireless communication channel modeling requires this knowledge), transmission lines (microwave engineering course requires a background of this topic), and antennas (antenna is a component of any communication system; any communication cannot happen without this).
  Multispectral Image Analysis Using the Object-Oriented Paradigm

Kumar Navulur

Bringing a fresh new perspective to remote sensing, object-based image analysis is a paradigm shift from the traditional pixel-based approach. Featuring various practical examples to provide understanding of this new modus operandi, Multispectral Image Analysis Using the Object-Oriented Paradigm reviews the current image analysis methods and demonstrates advantages to improve information extraction from imagery. 
MEMS Reliability

Hartzell, Allyson L., Da Silva , Mark., Shea, Herbert

Successfully bringing MEMS-based products to market hinges on engineering the component to have sufficient reliability for the intended application, yet the reliability and qualification methodology for MEMS based products is not widely understood. Companies that have a deep understanding of MEMS reliability because of specific high volume manufacturing experience generally view the details of a reliability program as a competitive advantage and are reluctant to share it. MEMS Reliability focuses on the reliability and manufacturability of MEMS at a fundamental product engineering level by addressing process development and characterization, material property characterization, failure mechanisms and physics of failure (PoF), accelerated testing and lifetime prediction, design strategies for improving yield, design for reliability (DfR), packaging and testing. 

Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering

(2nd Edition)

Hasmukh P. Oza and Gautam H Oza

This completely revised edition of the book, written with a design bias, is an outcome of vast experiences of practicing engineers. Besides the treatment of the theories, designs of foundations have been extensively covered. Suitable changes have been incorporated in chapters on “Earth Retaining Walls”, “Foundations” and "Machine Foundations". Since “Roads” are very much “foundations”, there is a chapter on “Roads and Runways”. Keeping in mind the technological advancement and changing techniques, chapters on “Instrumentation”, “Shallow Foundations”, “Deep Foundations”, “Tiebacks & Anchors”, “Reinforced Earth”, “Slabs on Grade”, and “Soil Stabilisation” have been added in this edition. The book fully covers the degree courses in civil engineering and, also, partly covers the curriculum for post-graduate studies.

Your Shadow Wants to Walk Alone Sandeep Kishore

Your Shadow Wants to Walk Alone is a book of poems. Originally written in Hindi, these poems have been translated by the author himself into English to connect with one and all. Emotions are universal and they transcend all barriers of geography or age. The book passionately captures the imagination, thoughts, dreams and life through its various phases. All of these connect with one another, even though they appear disjointed many a time. They capture multiple shades. Some of them drive the simplicity of dreams and aspirations, while others contemplate a different way of thinking. Some reflect from deep within and some look far away.

The Best of GA Kulkarni Shrikrishna D. Pandit

The book includes four of the best known stories by the legendary Marathi writer GA Kulkarni.

Deliverance (Mukti) too takes place over a single evening, but is shaped by events of more than one lifetime. Orpheus re-tells the well-known legend, as seen in a very different light by GA’s imagination. The Seeker (Yaatrik) is a take-off on the well loved story of Don Quixote, but reveals its characters – Don and Sancho- in a completely new light. Each of the stories takes the reader on a voyage of discovery, to a new world, new atmosphere, among different people. What one discovers though, are timeless insights about life, man and destiny.

Devi - A Journey through Photo Poetry Arnapurna Rath Women are an enigma of creation. They combine the dichotomies of existence, with a desire to be liberated as well as a wish to be bound by the chains of love and admiration. Devi: A Journey through Photo-Poetry,captures in words and images these dualities that exist within women whom we meet in our everyday lives. The set of forty-five poems and pictures are designed to map the internal landscape from their birth to the twilight years of their lives. This poetic journey is a tribute to the free-spirited dreamer that lives in every woman. From tea gardens to stuffy glass chambers of office cubicles, from dreams of fairy tale lives to domestic violence, from the vivacious professional to the intimate world of the homemaker, from the innocence of a new born to the manipulator and seductress, from the urbane soul to the village girl, these poems and images empathize with struggles, pain, highs and lows of time, and celebrate the joy of freedom as the greatest achievement in a woman's life.

Knowldege Management A Forward Looking Approach to Project Management: Tools, Trends, and the Impact of Disruptive Technologies Nikhil Gurjar This book is intended as a basis for advanced treatment of concepts in project
management. In the current scenario where most questions are answered through the internet, the knowledge element in project management has come under the influence of disruptive technologies.

The present day project managers need to orient themselves to newer benchmarks of what is required for success on the business front. This book deals with a few such advanced concepts in project management. This book is not designed as an elementary primer to the field of project management, rather it is an advanced level treatment on the subject, to be read after the preliminary study has already been completed.

  The Golden Tap

Kashyap Deorah

Ever wondered why global investors are willing to write million dollar cheques to young and inexperienced entrepreneurs? Why are companies no longer judged on their ability to make profits? How can the valuation of a startup dwarf that of its well-established counterpart? Is it a bubble? Or have the rules of the game changed? Can these hyper-funded technology driven companies become global superpowers? Or is it an unsustainable phenomenon?

The Golden Tap gives you the answers. In a remarkably honest, no holds barred account Kashyap - himself a serial entrepreneur - demystifies the technology ecosystem that exists in India today.

The Dean’s Perspective: Issues in Academic Leadership in Schools of Business Dr.Krishna Dhir The role of a business school dean is one of the most complex academic administrative positions found in higher education. B-school deans normally take on the roles and responsibilities of a chief executive officer (CEO) without the formal power found in such positions. Though the dean has limited formal position authority, the post does carry tremendous amounts of informal power and responsibilities. Furthermore, with the complexities of a position with limited formal but high informal authority, there is no other role in higher education, short of an institutional CEO, that is at crossroads of so many competing demands and tremendous opportunities. It is within this context that The Dean’s Perspective: Issues in Academic Leadership in Business Schools becomes such an important new resource for learning. Fortunately, most of the skills and knowledge needed to support a successful deanship can be learned and improved, and in that spirit, a business school dean must continuously seek to enhance his/her skills. This book shares the perspectives and insights of an impressive array of current and former deans as well as faculty members about the role of a business school dean in all its dimensions. The book is appropriate for sitting deans as well as for aspiring deans, and is an important addition to the literature on business school leadership.

RTI Act. Authentic Interpretation of the Statute. Shalilesh Gandhi & Pralhad Kachare

The Indian RTI Act as passed by parliament has been ranked third worldwide, but is number 66 in terms of implementation! Shalilesh Gandhi wrote this ebook to interpret the words of the law passed by Parliament.  His co-author is Mr. Pralhad Kachare who is a bureaucrat and was heading the RTI training cell at YASHADA.

A unique feature of this book is that its draft was shared with former Chief Information Commissioner Mr. Satyananda Mishra and Mr. Toby Mendel who is one of the leading international experts in transparency laws. They gave their views on the interpretations and the authors incorporated most of them. After that there were some differences in interpretations and nuances which have been mentioned in the footnotes in the book.  The authors claim that this is the most authentic interpretation of the RTI Act. The book could empower citizens and is a plea to all adjudicators to follow the words of the law.

The ebook can be downloaded from this link.  The hardcopy version will be available soon.

Bittersweet lessons of a startup guy Sudipto Majumdar We go through life accumulating experiences, and from them we learn lessons. Some lessons are happy ones we learn from our successes and others from our failures (at least that's the way it is supposed to be). An entrepreneur struggles at two levels. One is at professional level and other at a personal level. This book is not about the professional struggle at all. There is no attempt at analyzing any business techniques. This book is about the emotional struggles of an entrepreneur.
Rambles into Sacred Realms Krish V. Krishnan Rambles into Sacred Realms is the beautiful and inspiring chronicle of author and artist Krish V.

The Third Curve Mansoor Khan The Third Curve is a book that is NOT directly about morality, justice, equity, environmental consciousness and other noble human values. It is about the head-on collision between:Our total acceptance of an infinite economic growth model which is not possible and our total denial of the finiteness of the earth which is evident. We need a new lens to understand this inversion of economic reality. The Third Curve provides us that lens. It identifies the root cause of the malady by reminding us of the forgotten relationships between money and energy, capital and resources, concept and reality. Only through recognizing the pitfalls of perpetual growth can we truly map a secure future for our business enterprises, ourselves, our children and the planet at large.

The Inner I Tejas Suma Shyam Myriad emotions, enriching experiences and boundless ideas-life is truly a wonderful journey. Ironically, in today's mad race for survival, we sometimes forget to live. And as the precious moments float by, we remain mere spectators; perhaps feverishly praying for time to pause awhile, that we may savour the beauty of the moment. 'The Inner I' is an observational account of those ephemeral inner feelings. Each poem herein attempts to explore the gamut of emotions that flood your being from time to time. Bit by bit, 'The Inner I' poetically recreates the essence of those precious moments. Joy, sorrow, anger, anger, pain, inspiration, frustration, love, friendship, helplessness, delusion, excitement, humour....The poetry traverses a wide spectrum of themes.
