Becoming Indian. The focus of this study does not fall exclusively upon Tāranātha himself, although that is the main context. It also examines two Indian siddhas, Sāntigupta and Buddhaguptanātha, through whom Tāranātha authenticated and legitimized his own sense of 'Indian-ness'. Two chapters are dedicated to the lives of these figures, but always with an accent upon their relevance to Tāranātha himself. Tāranātha's Life of Buddhaguptanātha is presented as a translation in Appendix II. Finally, the thesis shows how the complex lives of prelates such as Tāranātha' were inextricably involved with the purely practical world of realpolitik, a world which ultimately, Tāranātha' was unable to extricate himself from."--Abstract, leaves iv-v.

The Silk Road Rediscovered. A roadmap for understanding the business challenges and opportunities in China By 2025, China and India will be two of the world's four largest economies. By then, economic ties between them should also rank among the ten most important bilateral ties worldwide. Their leaders are well aware of these emerging realities. In May 2013, just two months after taking charge, Premier Li Keqiang left for India on his first official trip outside China, a clear signal of China's foreign policy priorities. The Silk Road Rediscovered is the first book ever to analyze the growing corporate linkages between India and China. Did you know that: India's Mahindra is the fifth largest tractor manufacturer in China? Tata Motors' Jaguar Land Rover unit is the fastest growing luxury auto seller in China? India's NIIT is the most influential IT training brand in China? China's Huawei has its second largest R&D center in Bangalore and employs over 5000 people in India? Shanghai Electric earns its largest revenues outside China from India? As these developments illustrate, pioneering Indian and Chinese companies are rediscovering the fabled Silk Road which joined their nations in ancient times. Winning in each other's markets is also making them stronger and whetting their appetite for further global expansion. This book examines how Indian companies such as Tata Consultancy Services, Mahindra Tractors, NIIT, Tata Motors/Jaguar Land Rover and Sundaram Fasteners have figured out how to win in China. Their experiences may inspire and offer lessons to other Indian companies. The book also examines how Chinese pioneers such as Lenovo, Huawei, TBEA, Haier and Xinxing have made a strong commitment to India and are beginning to realize the fruits of this commitment. The key lessons that emerge from these analyses are: the odds of success go up dramatically when executives adopt a global rather than local-for-local perspective and are skillful at learning on the ground.

Becoming A Global Audience. What does globalization mean for the television audience? <I>Becoming a Global Audience examines concerns of cultural imperialism in relation to the actual experience of television reception in a postcolonial context. The rise of satellite television in India in the context of economic liberalization in 1991 has been marked by the localization of global music television networks like MTV and Channel V. This book argues, however, that this -Indianization- is no cause for celebration. Using in-depth interviews with Indian music television viewers and theoretical approaches drawn from political-economic, cultural, and postcolonial studies, it argues instead that the reception of -Top Ten- shows and nationalistic music videos is part of a profound reordering and appropriation of common sense under the changing social relations of globalization."
