Motilal Banarsidass

Welcome to the largest bookstore on Indology, from the oldest Publishing House in India: MLBD. You've just entered an amazing world of books. Whether you know the title you're looking for or simply want to know about informative Books on India, you're sure to find it here. Motilal Banarsidass (MLBD) is a leading Indian publishing house on Sanskrit and Indology since 1903, located in Delhi, India. It publishes and distributes serials, monographs, and scholarly publications on Asian religion, philosophy, history, culture, arts, architecture, archaeology, language, literature, linguistics, musicology, mysticism, yoga, tantra, occult, medicine, astronomy, astrology and other related subjects, and to date have published over 5,000 works.[1] Its noted publications are the 100 volumes of the Mahapuranas, Sacred Books of the East (50 Volumes) edited by Max Müller; Bibliotheca Buddhica (30 Volumes in 32 pts); Ramcharitmanas with Hindi and English translation, the Manusmriti in ten volumes and the Sanskrit lexicon, and Encyclopedia of Indian Philosophies (7 volumes). It also brings out books based on research and study conducted at organisations such as ICHR, IGNCA, ICCR [2][3], and has a turnover of approximately Rs 5–6 crore, roughly 75% coming from exports [4]. Motilal Banarsidass Publishers was first established in Lahore in 1903 by Lala Motilal Jain, a descendant of the family of court jewellers to Maharaja Ranjit Singh in Amritsar. Motilal borrowed Rs. 27 from his wife's savings that she had earned from her knitting work, to start a bookshop selling Sanskrit books in 'Said Mitha Bazar' in Lahore. He named it after his eldest son Motilal Banarsidass Jain, who later took charge of the publishing business. The interior of Motilal Banarsidass, in Delhi In 1911, MLBD opened a branch at Mai Sewan Bazar, Amritsar, under the supervision of Lala Sundarlal Jain, another son of Lala Motilal Jain, though after the untimely death of Lala Banarasidass in 1912, Sundarlal Jain, his only surviving brother had to close this establishment and relocate to Lahore to look after the family business. Soon he was joined by his young nephew Shantilal Jain, who had just finished school, who eventually became the company's chairman. Soon a printing unit was also set up and the publishing house was established.[5] In 1937, a branch was started in Patna at the suggestion of Rajendra Prasad. Subsequently during the Partition of India a riot burnt down the Lahore shop. Post independence, the family moved to India and initially stayed at Bikaner and Patna, before moving to Varanasi in 1950, where it set up shop in 1951, and finally shifted base to Delhi in 1958. In 1992, Shantilal Jain was awarded the Padma Shri by Govt. of India, the first ever Padma award for outstanding community service through publishing [3]. Today Shantilal's son Rajendra Prakash Jain and his four brothers and their sons, along with their mother, Leela Jain, who is company's Chairperson, run the business [1][2]. In 2003, the company celebrated its centenary at a function in Chennai, where Kanchi Sankaracharya, Jayendra Saraswathi, honoured three Sankrit scholars: R. Balasubramaniam, B.M.K. Sharma and K.V. Sharma.[6], at function held at Bangalore, Governor of Karnataka, T.N. Chaturvedi, felicitated centenarian, Sudhakar Chaturvedi, S.M.S. Chari, and B.K. Krishnamurthy of Hyderabad for their contribution to Indology, and eminent astrologer, B.V. Raman, was honoured posthumously.

Oxford University Press

Oxford University Press is the world's largest university press, publishing more than 4,500 new books a year; it has a presence in more than fifty countries and employs some 3,700 people worldwide. OUP in India is an integral part of the Press's worldwide organization. Like OUP internationally, it propagates the liberal objectives of the University to further education and learning through publications that reflect the specific needs of the country that it serves.

History OUP India was established in 1912 in Bombay (now Mumbai). After Mumbai, offices were established at Chennai and Kolkata, and an office at Delhi was opened in 1972. With the opening of the Delhi office, the headquarters of OUP India shifted from Mumbai to Delhi.

Publishing OUP India's publishing operations currently fall into three distinct areas: academic, general and reference, higher education, and school education.

Its academic list, in the humanities and social sciences, is widely acknowledged to be the most distinguished in the world on subjects relating to South Asia. Its growing reference publishing in India is considered a pioneering effort in this exclusive field.

Recently, OUP India has embarked on an ambitious higher education programme aimed at meeting the requirements of Indian college and university students with special focus on the disciplines of engineering, computer science and management.

OUP India has a well-established educational publishing programme to cater to the key curriculum requirements of Indian schools from the pre-primary to the higher secondary level. It is acknowledged as a foremost English Language Teaching (ELT) publisher in the country. OUP India also has a rapidly growing list of texts in the humanities and social sciences as also in science and mathematics.

OUP India also publishes atlases and bilingual dictionaries in various Indian languages. Across the entire spectrum of OUP publishing in India, there is a specific regional component, fulfilling the vision of the Delegates of the Press, and serving the needs of the region's academic and educational community as their major university press.

Operations As one of the largest publishers in India, OUP has four regional sales offices at Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata with independent warehouses and showrooms in Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Pune, Lucknow, Patna, Hyderabad, Guwahati, Ernakulam, Chandigarh and Jaipur.

These showrooms cater to the growing requirements of academics, school, college and university students, professional and research institutions, as also general readers.

OUP India has established a modern all-India Central Warehouse at NOIDA, near Delhi, which is spread over 25,000 sq. ft. Its business is supported by SAP with on-line connectivity with all offices and warehouses in India.

Penguin

Penguin Books is a publisher founded in 1935 by Sir Allen Lane and V.K. Krishna Menon.[1][2][3] Penguin revolutionised publishing in the 1930s through its high quality, inexpensive paperbacks, sold through Woolworths and other high street stores for sixpence. Penguin's success demonstrated that large audiences existed for serious books. Penguin also had a significant impact on public debate in Britain, through its books on politics, the arts, and science.[4] Penguin Books is now the flagship imprint of the worldwide Penguin Group and is owned by Pearson PLC.The first Penguin paperbacks were published in 1935, but at first only as an imprint of Bodley Head (of Vigo Street) with the books originally distributed from the crypt of Holy Trinity Church Marylebone. Only paperback editions were published until the Pelican History of Art was undertaken: these were unsuitable as paperbacks because of the length and copious illustrations on art paper so cloth bindings were chosen instead. Penguin Books has its registered office in the City of Westminster, London, England.[5][6] Four Pelican book covers, showing the gradual shift in the design. From left - 1937 (three bands), 1955 (grid), 1969 (illustrated), and 2007 (a "Penguin Celebrations" throwback edition) The publication of literature in paperback, then associated mainly with poor quality, lurid fiction, did not appear viable to Bodley Head and the deliberately low price of 6d. made profitability seem unlikely. This helped Allen Lane purchase publication rights for some works more cheaply than he otherwise might have done since other publishers were convinced of the short term prospects of the business. The purchase of 63,000 books by Woolworth paid for the project outright, confirmed its worth and allowed Lane to establish Penguin as a separate business in 1936. By March 1936, ten months after the company's launch on 30 July 1935, one million Penguin books had been printed. From the outset, design was essential to the success of the Penguin brand. Eschewing the illustrated gaudiness of other paperback publishers, Penguin opted for the simple appearance of three horizontal bands, the upper and lower of which were colour coded according to which series the title belonged to; this is sometimes referred to as the horizontal grid. In the central white panel, the author and title were printed in Gill Sans and in the upper band was a cartouche with the legend "Penguin Books". The initial design was created by the then twenty-one-year-old office junior Edward Young, who also drew the first version of the Penguin logo. Series such as Penguin Specials and The Penguin Shakespeare had individual designs (by 1937 only S1 and B1-B18 had been published). The colour schemes included: orange and white for general fiction, green and white for crime fiction, cerise and white for travel and adventure, dark blue and white for biographies, yellow and white for miscellaneous, red and white for drama; and the rarer purple and white for essays and belles lettres and grey and white for world affairs. Lane actively resisted the introduction of cover images for several years. Some recent publications of literature from that time have duplicated the original look. From 1937 and on, the headquarters of Penguin Books was at Harmondsworth north of London and so it remained until the 1990s when a merge with Viking involved the head office moving into London (27 Wrights Lane, W8 5TZ).

email me bro dery[dot]kurniawan1[at]gmail[dot]com An ambitiously programmed venture of specialized publishing in Indic/Indological Studies, D.K.

Together with a fairly large team of professionals and highly experienced personnel, who are ever alive to the latest developments on the publishing scenario, we today — in a span of a little over ten years — count among the leading publishers of Indological works in India, with a nearly worldwide recognition for our uncompromising standards. D.K. Printworld: the Publishers Over these few years, we have brought out hundreds of research-oriented titles by authors/institutions of national and international repute. Already, we are running ten series on key areas of Indology/Indic Studies — which, in terms of their coverage, embrace diverse subjects relevant to Indian archaeology, history, arts (including fine arts, performing arts), religion, philosophy, literary classics, linguistics, Islamic heritage, Buddhist and Jaina studies, and the like. We, as ever before, welcome authors with manuscript details. D.K.
