Three generation of Bhagavadsinhji continued their support [ citation needed ] for this mammoth task. The notable and unique aspect of Bhagavadgomandal is that it not only lists the spellings, grammar, usage and meanings of words, but it also provides historical facts and figures, diagrams, cross-references to other words and history of origin, wherever applicable.
This feature expands Bhagvadgomandal's scope from a dictionary to that of an encyclopedia. The other interesting feature is that Bhagavadgomandal describes the life and contributions of famous people, up to the time of the creation of the encyclopedia.
A second reprint was printed in by Pravin Prakashan ,  Rajkot. It was feared that people may not be interested in the encyclopedia anymore, but the response was really good, and that lead to the third reprint, that was printed in In August [ citation needed ] the first online edition of Bhagavadgomandal  was launched by Pravin Prakashan. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Her husband, blind Dhritashastra, had declined the divya caksus, preferring to hear secondary oral reports. Gandhari curses Krsna for having fueled the self-destruction of society condemning him and his clan to perish. Dhraupadi is described crucially as being both darsaniya beautiful and pandita learned.
Gandhari is an incarnation of Mati, the goddess of intelligence. The women are what the Mahabharata calls tapasvini suffering women , not as passive objects of the power of males or others, but rather as the activating grounds for their work to repair the world Hebrew tikkun olam9.
Working in the aftermaths of Partition, of the riots that followed the assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, and of the liberalization of the economy with its polarizing effects of inequality, Das turns, in Affliction, to health care and embodied inscriptions of pain amidst the production of poverty and disarray in the health care system.
The key exemplars are women saved after the bloody Partition, who are only partially reintegrated into society, their virtue tainted by suspicion.
Shiva thematizes the swallowing of pain to save the world, to allow relations with others, and society to continue. Amrit paane se pahle Vish pinna padta hai before one can get Amrit, one must drink poison is the daily idiom success follows many obstacles. Indeed the Mahabharata opens with an account of its own telling in the intervals of the Sarpa Satra sacrifice ritual. She is is a sine-qua-non of sovereignty and rituals of state kings like ordinary householders, and celebrants of Vedic rituals, must have wives, females who without whom their status has no legitimacy, and who act independently.
The sarpa satra rituals in the outer frame stories of the Mahabharata themselves have carnavalesque features, involving all the priests of the realm and their wives, making noise, lewd exchanges, and ritual copulation Hiltebeitel From these inauspicious births of the two kings begin the rivalries and mutual destruction that his family suffers.
Snakes, nagas, dangerous protectors across India and Southeast Asia, play a role in at least four of these conflict layers. It is interesting, Das notes, that when Yudhisthira is asked what is the highest dharma righteous conduct , he says noncruelty anrishansya , rather than non violence. In the debates between Jains and Hindu Brahmins, she reminds, the tendencies in Jainism towards absolute ahimsa, are countered by the Brahmins pointing out that life depends on eating and killing others, symbolized by the sacrifice in ritual, and that minimizing cruelty is a more realistic this-worldly principle.
And as David Shulman adds, The veils of ignorance about causes and motivations, chains of consequences and collateral effects, intensify ethical trials in Hindu and Jain stories, particularly given the transitive reverberations of reincarnation and karma over time and across generations.
The stories of Dhraupadi and Gandhari become ladders of instruction, phalasrutis instructional, beneficial tales. They are stories of the development of what Emmanuel Levinas calls ethical consciousness [conscience morale].
The phalasrutas addressed to women, on the surface are often conservative reminders of devotion to husband pativrata , but through careful managing of forms of power and ascetic self-restraint wives gain power.
It is the second time that Dhraupadi saves him. Both are dependent on the double valence of conscience as both consciousness and conscience, as intentional compassion and obligatory compulsion. This is a wonderful figuration: His sister, Gandhari to his dismay, was married off to Dhitrashastra, born blind.
She had been symbolically married first to a goat to cheat her destiny in which it was foretold that her husband would die soon after her marriage.
Learning of this earlier marriage, Dhitrashastra flies into a rage and imprisons all of her male natal relatives. Shakuni is the only brother to survive because all the others gave him their meager prison rations, so that he might avenge their deaths. The cry of the other should at least makes you stop and recognize it.
Even if you can do nothing, your conscience morale troubles you.
The conscience morale constantly points out the betrayals of the state, the gap between the law and justice as Jacques Derrida would say. So there is need for the work of Ghulam Ali. And further: I think that I could write the history of anthropology by looking at how it always comes into being in certain scenes of collapse. To speak of women as rights-bearing individuals in this context is to invoke a situation that does not exist in a meaningful way.
Yet the hospital decided that the amount approved [by the Central Government Health Scheme was insufficient, and refused to conduct any pre-operative tests or even attend to him until we changed his status to a private, full-paying patient.
They did not deign to inform us of this however;. The consulting doctor on morning rounds asked the nurse to have an x-ray taken; when he returned for evening rounds that day, the x-ray had still not been done in spite of our constantly badgering the nurse.
This hospital was a major destination for medical tourists from around the world. A French couple in the room across from [us] stood with us in the corridor, in sympathy and horror. It reveals a series of bureaucratic failures in making health care institutions responsive to the actual conditions of the impoverished. The case of Meena is a particularly galling example, casting questions as well on the compilation of statistics on which public health care planning and metrics of success depend.
He illustrates his review with a picture of a woman waiting with baby in arms outside Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital in New Delhi.
Even more painfully, Roma Chatterjee notes Bilu again comes to mind. Das focuses on the poor, but not only the poor suffer, nor is it only in the public sector, nor are these issues unique to India.
The problems of disaster response medical attention is iconically represented by Bhopal, but applies as well to Minimata, Love Canal, and many other toxic release and disaster sites Fortun , George , Harr , Reich Likewise which populations are recruited into clinical trials is an ethical issue crystallized in the case of unemployed or underemployed former textile workers in Central Mumbai, but is a concern globally Sunder Rajan , Petryna , Cooper and Waldby Highly trained doctors returning to India to set up specialty clinics sometimes trigger unintended consequences, for instance: The struggle over intellectual property regimes, drug pricing, and generic drug production is not only a problem in India.
Nor are the toxic environments in which the poor are often consigned, e. Kolatkar, Nilekani, Sinha constitute something of a contemporary urban folk Mahabharata, in which the characters are marginalized by poverty and the inequalities of innovation economies, structured from top to bottom by double-binds, caught in contradictory imperatives. We are beginning to have a series of important ethnographic studies of the fragmented Indian health care systems of the posts liberalization era that not only realistically put in their place contexts, and limits the claims of transformative technologies and political economies, but also, as in a mosaic, throw light on disconnections and missing pieces, e.
Bioavailability Cohen , , surplus health Sunder Rajan , drug harmonization Kuo , public-private leveraging, domestic commons versus global markets are emergent and urgent matters of concern.
India has long had social movements for social justice including Gandhian hygiene campaigns and cataract removal camps, government and philanthropy-based general hospitals, targeted disability and disease campaigns, and here and there world-class elite research institutes, amidst decayed state universities and entrepreneurial private ones of variable quality.
There are many ways to narrate the history of the life sciences in India. The usual ways are to pick key sectors, key institutional developments, key policy initiatives, or key scientific leaders. Anderson,  , but then branching out into biology, information technology, and ecology. The idea is to provide what in geology or archeology would be called a cross-sectional cut through historical strata. Among the initiatives at the time was a Parsi community-wide genetic survey in Pune and Bombay directed by a student of and in collaboration with human geneticist Victor McKusick at the Johns Hopkins University.
A decade later in I spent a tumultuous year in Ahmedabad —the year of communal riots against the Mandal Commissions increase of reservations in medical and engineering schools for Other Backward Castes, Scheduled Castes, and Scheduled Tribes; the assassination of Indira Gandhi and the subsequent riots, and the Bhopal disaster — researching the Jain community.
We, my wife and I, had occasion to need a doctor, and were carefully guided through the hospital and private clinic system, becoming aware of the practice of families providing basic food and care while members were in the hospital. In the s I returned on several short research trips to explore the genealogies of modern science in India, first those of physics — beginning in Ahmedabad again with the Physical Research Institute founded by the already deceased Vikram Sarabhai, and I interviewed, in Bombay, E.
In the meantime, from E. Chitnis I had learned that his son Chetan Chitnis was a malaria researcher at NIH in Washington, and went to meet him there we had overlapped at Rice University, where he got an MA in physics, but we did not meet then.
Through an MIT Parsi connection, on a subsequent visit to Bombay, I got an introduction to Yusuf Hamied CEO of Cipla Pharmaceuticals , and had a long interview with him on the changes in the patent system from the process patents that allowed the generics industry to grow in the s and caused the multinationals to withdraw from India at that time, to now in the s a new product patent regime to harmonize with the international rules of the GATT and TRIPS agreements. Hamied grew up with the Parsi symphony conductor Zubin Mehta and like Mehta had many connections in Israel.
Swati Piramal Chief Scientific Officer of Nicholas-Piramal Pharmaceutical Company and she provided a tour both of their soil and plant screening research facilities, and a clinical trial center that they were establishing. Her idea at the time was that with new cheaper diagnostics on a chip Nicholas Piramal could become a diagnostic service center for rural physicians across the country. I followed up in Bangalore with some new biotechnology companies, especially one that was pioneering the local production of reagents needed for basic pharmaceutical research.
I also did interviews at Tata Consultancies in Bombay. In Hyderabad, on the recommendation of Kaushik Sunder Rajan who was beginning to do his own work on the life sciences in India as well as globally I went to interview people at Dr. Kaushik was doing fieldwork in New Delhi, and I went to visit him. There were racks of new computers sitting around which would be built into powerful parallel processing machines. Brahmachari was full of social organization ideas: National laboratories were funded in ways that could not in fact create full translational systems from bench to bedside: So India would need to experimentally create new forms of private-public partnerships.
The first of these, as Sunder Rajan was to discover, was with Nicholas-Piramal. Sunder Rajan would also visit the clinical trial facility that I had seen in a much earlier stage, and came to understand that that it was a facility for the extraction of surplus health from a nearly captive population of unemployed former textile workers.
Among his continued imagination for social organizational innovation, he had prepared for the HUGO meetings by holding many satellite preparatory meetings with university students around the country, and invited them to the Hyderabad meetings. They came in large numbers. Controversially he would then recruit them and others to crowd source annotation of the tuberculosis genome, doing it much faster than more conventional laboratories could do.
Challenged, he would say that anyone who wished could verify the results, as they were posted on the web.
One final experience will close, for the moment, this rapid race through Indian developments in the life sciences: For India, the exercise was to be a seedbed to produce charismatic cohorts of biomedical leaders to transform health care nation-wide. Another axis of conflict was between the HST commitment to interdisciplinarity and creation of new hybrid fields on the one hand, and established inertial commitments by leaders in fields such as vaccine development to do what they knew how to do and to run institutions in the traditional top-down manner.
In the end, although MIT successfully helped hire a number of young professors, these conflicts stymied the transnational collaboration.
MIT withdrew. Much more remains to be said about each of the above mentioned initiatives, but for the limited purpose here, it is enough to point to the efforts at organizational change that it was hoped could bring biomedical competence to affliction.
Research and training institutes such NCBS and ICGEB, one a purely Indian national institute, the other a UN-associated international center, appear to be successful in part because they are new institutions staffed with young internationally trained professionals.
Within the Indian state and its older institutions, there are charismatic leaders such as M. The shift from a process to product patents intellectual property regime was profound and brought multinational companies back into India. The effort by Indian companies like Dr. Reddy, Ranbaxy, Nicholas Piramal, and Cipla to create their own research and development units to compete on the international stage involved acquiring units in the U.
More importantly, there has been an effort through the court system or judicialization to re-balance the TRIPS agreement to push back against patents as proprietary monopolies rather than as means of licensing for the public good notably the recent denial of a patent for Gleevac on the ground of failure to demonstrate any new biological mechanism of action [Sunder Rajan forthcoming].
These include struggles over patent and licensing to getting new vaccines locally produced IGEMB , generic drugs to patients at affordable cost Cipla, Dr. The terrain is varied, uneven, and calls for new forms, perhaps of financing, but more importantly new social organization for robust community public health, and sense of citizenship and responsibility from community clinics to five star hospitals.
Despite the Kalyuga age of which the Mahabharata is emblematic, there is energy and hope to be fostered and ignited. Life is always a counter-force to entropy and decay. The tales of the everyday are of intermediate structures and work practices, patient accompaniers23, patient advocates; training health care physicians, nurses, and biomedical scientists and engineers to think about robust communities as their metrics; and the peopling of technologies themselves as networks of care, compassion, and mutual responsibility Fischer Ramanujan Standing alone on the field of battle, O Hussein, never shall I forget Hussein!
Ya Hussein! Affliction is the flickering of life, fever and fire. I can now hear the fire. What must it have been like, that inferno? O who will speak now for the orphans? The marble balconies that surround the courtyard of fire are lined with women in dark robes.
On this night most of them have pushed back their veils, their faces are lit from below, the flow softly rouges their cheeks watching with unblindfolded eyes.
