Escape from Taliban : a true story( Visual )

2 editions published in 2000 in Hindi and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sushmita and Jaanbaz live in India, and they are in love. They intend to marry, but Sushmita's family is strongly opposed to the marriage, since Jaanbaz is a Muslim and they are Hindus. But Sushmita and Jaanbaz do get married, and Jaanbaz takes her with him to his country--Afghanistan. On the way there, Sushmita is horrified to see mutilated corpses, bomb explosions, and armed militants. She is terrified and asks Jaanbaz to take her back, but Jaanbaz takes her to his home. Jaanbaz's family is delighted with Sushmita and welcomes her. But some members of his family regard her as a non-believer. Soon, Sushmita is given a Muslim name, Sayed Kamal and, later, gives birth to a baby girl. Sushmita's attempts to flee with her daughter are all in vain. Is she destined to live in a country where women have no rights, bear abuse all the time, and cannot even leave the threshold of their dwelling without a male escort? How can one woman and a child escape from the Taliban? A rivetting drama that confronts the unspeakable truth of Afghanistan under the rule of the Taliban
Conceptualising the past of the Muslim community in the sixteenth century: A prosopographical study of the Ak̲h̲bār al-Ak̲h̲yār( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This article studies a sixteenth-century sufi taz̠kirāt (biographical dictionary), Ak̲h̲bār al-Ak̲h̲yār written by 'Abd al-Haqq Muhaddis Dehlawi (1551-1642), an 'ālim (scholar), who was also a sufi. The text is frequently cited as the earliest, most comprehensive and reliable biographical compilation of South Asian sufis and 'ulamā' (learned men in religious sciences) from the thirteenth to the sixteenth century. Indeed 'Abd al-Haqq is best remembered for his scholasticism as a mūḥaddis̤ (a person well-versed in Prophetic traditions) which is also supposed to have made him into a rather staid scholar of Sufism. But what of him in his own society of elite Muslim intellectuals in the early seventeenth century? 'Abd al-Haqq was networked into the elite circles of the Mughal court, but he stayed away from Mughal patronage, communicating his ambivalence regarding its political experiments by espousing alternative paradigms. My article studies the structure of the Ak̲h̲bār al-Ak̲h̲yār to comprehend how a Muslim intellectual constructed a history of his peer group at a critical juncture in the making of Mughal authority. My article follows a prosopographical methodology to explore the innovative structure of the Ak̲h̲bār al-Ak̲h̲yār and its complex projection of the past of the piety-minded in Hindustan. As I argue, the Ak̲h̲bār al-Ak̲h̲yār is a carefully structured, remarkable history of sufis and their networks, providing them with contexts and significance that questioned both, inherited paradigms of moral authority present in the fourteenth- and fifteenth-century sufi texts as well as those emerging in the statist renditions of the past from the courts of the Mughal emperors Akbar and Jahangir

Synthesis and characterization of a novel SnFe2O4@activated carbon magnetic nanocomposite and its effectiveness in the removal of crystal violet from aqueous solution( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Highlights: Outline of preparation and characterization of a novel SnFe2 O4 @activated carbon magnetic nanocomposite. SnFe2 O4 @activated carbon magnetic nanocomposite is used for the removal of crystal violet. Adsorption isotherms, kinetics, and thermodynamic parameter have been studied. Results showed good potential of magnetic nanocomposite for the removal of crystal violet. Magnetic nanocomposite exhibits good reusability. Abstract: In the present study, SnFe2 O4 @activated carbon magnetic nanocomposite was synthesized via co-precipitation route. The as-prepared magnetic nanocomposite was characterized by BET surface area analyzer, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray diffractometry (XRD), vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM), and through the determination of pHzpc . The performance of magnetic nanocomposite was further evaluated for its potential in adsorptive removal of cationic dye, crystal violet (CV). The effect of various parameters such as initial dye concentration, contact time, pH, and temperature were also investigated. The adsorption equilibrium data were analyzed by Langmuir, Freundlich, and Dubinin–Radushkevich isotherm models and Langmuir model found to be the most appropriate one. The maximum sorption capacity for the removal of CV was calculated as 158.73 mg/g at 323 K. The adsorption kinetics was analyzed using pseudo-first order, pseudo-second order, and intra-particles diffusion models. Adsorption kinetics reveals better agreement with pseudo-second order model. Investigation of thermodynamic parameters suggests endothermic and spontaneous nature of dye removal process. All these results revealed that the as-prepared magnetic nanocomposite has a remarkable potential for the removal of CV from aqueous solution

Music in New York City : economic impact, trends, and opportunities by Sushmita Banerjee( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"New York City is home to one of the world's largest--if not the largest--and most influential music ecosystems.... This music ecosystem is composed of four key pillars: local artist communities, mass music consumption, the global record business, and infrastructure and support services.... One of the main reasons New York City's music ecosystem remains strong, is that these pillars are interrelated and mutually reinforcing.... This report takes a closer look all four pillars of the music ecosystem and how economic impact is created"--Executive Summary
