Somewhere deep inside, my intuition, my sixth sense, which is an exceptional gift from GOD to me, indicated that I already had the answer. I knew the person who may have orchestrated this …? My thoughts were repeatedly drawn to the statement I had heard a few days back; “DSP Saheb, God Almighty has granted a hidden charisma to a beautiful woman, who has the power to change the world and much depends on the women who exercises such influence for better or for worse. Women are the progenitors of entire creation, yet history justifies that its often a woman that has led to the bloodiest of wars. Man is but a conduit for the will of a woman”. I was further stunned to hear his views, when he added: DSP Saheb; “Unbelievably she is an outstandingly beautiful woman, with a regal upbringing; but off-late I realised she is the personification of hate, envy, greed and has the soul of a serpent. She very effectively uses her beauty and sensuality as potent weapons.” I do not have any hesitation in making this statement in confidence; probably till then, I was in her emotional captivity…

In all honesty, I am obliged to accept that it may be a misnomer for me to claim authorship of this book. Rather, may be I should just settle for the title of a "Compiler". This is because I was only challenged to share the contents and lessons of most of the resource materials which had actually had far-reaching effects on me and subsequently imparted me with renewed understanding, vigour and approach to life. Such contents actually got me thinking whether it was possible to achieve God's purpose in life without some commensurate innate gifts to serve as the underlining background for success, and to overcome the challenges of his commission on earth. Besides, God was said to have created man in His own image, and this same God to whom all the wealth and riches of the world belong is both Omni-potent, and Omniscient. As a liberal, and kind, God of love, could He also have allowed a man in His own image to come to face the rigour of the world empty-handed and totally unprepared. To solve this riddle and expose the readers to a better understanding of the controversy, this book has attempted to serialize the trends of life and the role of man in it, vis-à-vis the qualities he possesses to impact positively on what God has placed in his care, for him to be able to return home triumphantly if he did the right things here during his earthly sojourn.

A 2021 National Jewish Book Award Finalist One of Smithsonian Magazine's Best History Books of 2021 "An uplifting tale, suffused with a karmic righteousness that is, at times, exhilarating." —Wall Street Journal "A gripping narrative that reads like a page turning thriller novel." —NPR In the summer of 1942, the Rabinowitz family narrowly escaped the Nazi ghetto in their Polish town by fleeing to the forbidding Bialowieza Forest. They miraculously survived two years in the woods—through brutal winters, Typhus outbreaks, and merciless Nazi raids—until they were liberated by the Red Army in 1944. After the war they trekked across the Alps into Italy where they settled as refugees before eventually immigrating to the United States. During the first ghetto massacre, Miriam Rabinowitz rescued a young boy named Philip by pretending he was her son. Nearly a decade later, a chance encounter at a wedding in Brooklyn would lead Philip to find the woman who saved him. And to discover her daughter Ruth was the love of his life. From a little-known chapter of Holocaust history, one family’s inspiring true story.

“A sharp and compelling memoir” of a feminist icon who forged positive change for herself, for women everywhere, and for the world (Rosemary G. Feal, executive director of the Modern Language Association). Florence Howe has led an audacious life: she created a freedom school during the civil rights movement, refused to bow to academic heavyweights who were opposed to sharing power with women, established women’s studies programs across the country during the early years of the second wave of the feminist movement, and founded a feminist publishing house at a time when books for and about women were a rarity. Sustained by her relationships with iconic writers like Grace Paley, Tillie Olsen, and Marilyn French, Howe traveled the world as an emissary for women’s empowerment, never ceasing in her personal struggle for parity and absolute freedom for all women. Howe’s “long-awaited memoir” spans her ninety years of personal struggle and professional triumphs in “a tale told with startling honesty by one of the founding figures of the US feminist movement, giving us the treasures of a history that might otherwise have been lost” (Meena Alexander, author of Fault Lines).

Fundamentals of Water Treatment Unit Processes

Carefully designed to balance coverage of theoretical and practical principles, Fundamentals of Water Treatment Unit Processes delineates the principles that support practice, using the unit processes approach as the organizing concept. The author covers principles common to any kind of water treatment, for example, drinking water, municipal wastewater, industrial water treatment, industrial waste water treatment, and hazardous wastes. Since technologies change but principles remain constant, the book identifies strands of theory rather than discusses the latest technologies, giving students a clear understanding of basic principles they can take forward in their studies. Reviewing the historical development of the field and highlighting key concepts for each unit process, each chapter follows a general format that consists of process description, history, theory, practice, problems, references, and a glossary. This organizational style facilitates finding sections of immediate interest without having to page through an excessive amount of material. Pedagogical Features End-of-chapter glossaries provide a ready reference and add terms pertinent to topic but beyond the scope of the chapter Sidebars sprinkled throughout the chapters present the lore and history of a topic, enlarging students’ perspective Example problems emphasize tradeoffs and scenarios rather than single answers and involve spreadsheets Reference material includes several appendices and a quick-reference spreadsheet Solutions manual includes spreadsheets for problems Supporting material is available for download Understanding how the field arrived at its present state of the art places the technology in a more logical context and gives students a strong foundation in basic principles. This book does more than build technical proficiency, it adds insight and understanding to the broader aspects of water treatment unit processes.
