Dream Psychology by Sigmund FreudIndia 2 subscribers add
From the dawn of human consciousness, dreams have always fascinated us. Do they mean something? Do dreams help us see into the future? These questions have intrigued us for centuries. Sigmund Freud was one of the first people to examine dreams seriously and interpret them in the context of our waking lives. In Dream Psychology: Psychoanalysis for Beginners, the Austrian psychoanalyst, Dr Sigmund Freud shares his exciting early discoveries that there was indeed a connection between his patients' dreams and their mental disturbances.
Sigmund Freud was educated to be a neurologist, but went on to revolutionize the world of human psychology by establishing the theories of psychoanalysis. This is a clinical therapeutic method for dealing with mental disturbances. He considered dreams as extra information that the patient was unable to convey to the analyst during the waking state.
Dream Psychology, first published in 1921, and translated by MD Eder, is a definitive work which changed the climate of treatments and handling of different neuroses and dysfunctional people. The book is divided into nine chapters. In many of them, Freud uses his own dreams as subjects for interpretation, while in others, he uses his patients' dreams to elucidate his theories of psychoanalysis. While some of the theories may no longer be relevant or valid in today's world, this book is indeed one of the foundation stones of Freudian psychoanalysis and marked a water-shed in the attitude towards dreams. He refuted the purely medical and purely spiritual interpretations that had been prevalent till then and proposed a completely new theory.
Some of the most interesting parts of the book deal with symbols and language in dreams. Freud developed a standard system of symbols and their actual meaning based on his studies and used it to interpret and decode what his patient was really thinking and conveying. Many of the dreams he recounts were analyzed in the context of Victorian attitudes towards sexuality, repressed desires and unfulfilled wishes. By analyzing and understanding these dreams, Freud's patients were able to get a better understanding of their underlying, unexpressed motives and this set them on the path to healing.
We spend nearly one third of our lives sleeping and during some of that time we dream. Some dreams are vivid enough to be remembered, others are forgotten the moment we wake. This book is an interesting and thought-provoking read that appeals to both people interested in psychology and the casual reader.

Marbo is the driving force behind a revolution in music attitudes driven by a need to counter the recycling of old music and self-destructive behaviour so common in the clubs these days. Since the beginning of the acid house movement 1988 in the UK Marbo delivered genre destroying sets alongside DJ Harvey. That was a time when people found simple happiness, enjoyment and community in the music, much of which has been lost in the contemporary club scenes.
While disco has been enjoying a resurgence and the edit scene has been re-engineering old tracks into more contemporary house grooves, Marbo has uniquely extracted and untangled the soul, beauty and bass out of hi-tech trance and restructured it into futuristic disco powered soundscapes. It’s simple to listen to, highly emotive and brings us back to the roots of dance music – the feeling of just hearing a track that makes you want to move your body without thinking. This is the future of disco, and the beginning of a positive music revival.
The innovators and pioneering music makers such as YMO, Giorgio Moroder, Larry Levan (R.I.P.) Paradise Garage and Ron Hardy (R.I.P.) led us out of the darkness in the past and now we need to head into a brighter future. Whether we are in Tokyo, Beijing, Pyongyang, Paris, Baghdad, Kabul, Berlin, Barcelona, London or New York the world must find a common language.
Those in Tokyo being at the forefront of the technology devolution have created the new language of 120BPM Trance. Typically psychedelic or rave style Trance surges forward at 140+ BPM crushing all in its path and lashing people who demand an escape from reality with noise. It creates dissenters and turns people off but within its details lies a secret and infinite possibilities are unlocked by lowering the BPM and reclaiming the funk, tuning it to a natural human tempo. By learning from our past our DJ crew is rewriting our common language creating a new brighter future with a sound like no other. The Sound.
Bhagavad Gita by Sir Edwin Arnold (Translator)India 2 subscribers add
One of the world’s most valued scriptures, the Bhagavad Gita is a Hindu scripture which is a part of the Indian epic Mahabharata. Undeniably, it is also one of the most important texts in the history of literature and philosophy. The scripture offers a guide on how to achieve a self-sufficient life and clarification of Indian theology. Written in the form of a poetic dialogue between Krishna and Arjuna, the piece is comprised of 700 verses. It depicts the relationship between man and God, a divine purpose, and the omnipresence of God that serves to reward good.
The literary piece takes place on the eve of a great battle which promises to be violent and with definite casualties. On the scene of the battlefield, Prince Arjuna is inspecting the area while in doubt and morally insecure about whether or not to go ahead with the battle against his very own kin. In response to the prince’s indecisiveness, Krishna explains his duties as a prince as he proceeds to address certain philosophies using examples and analogies. For that reason, the dialogue has been presented as a concise guide to Hindu philosophy and attainment of self-contentment. Most inspiring is the purpose of the sacred Hindu text, whose aims are not merely to enlighten and instruct on the scope of religion, but also try and reach out to humanity in general in order to incite a better life for everyone and promote coexistence. By means of its philosophies and knowledge, the document presents profound wisdom which is sure to leave an eternal impression through its powerful and perpetual message.
A work offering comfort and enlightenment, the Bhagavad Gita is regarded with much respect and love as it directs its readers towards a fulfilling and joyous life. Translated by Sir Edwin Arnold, the book presents a translation magnificently written and true to the original, as it alluringly stirs up emotion and strong imagery within its audience.

Relativity: The Special and General Theory by Albert EinsteinIndia 2 subscribers add
Einstein wrote this book for people who are interested in understanding the Theory of Relativity but aren't experts in scientific and mathematical principles. I'm sure many people have heard about Einstein's Theory of Relativity, but most of them don't really know what it is all about. This book gives them a chance to know more about this very famous theory without the need to take a Physics course first.
This book is divided into three parts. The first part explains what special relativity is all about. The second part discusses general relativity thoroughly and the last part deals with the considerations of the universe as a whole.
The first part explains the principles of the special theory of relativity. Here the relationship between space and time are thoroughly discussed. The derivation of Einstein's most famous formula which is E = mc2 is also explained in this part in a very simple way. The second part which is about the general theory of relativity is about the generalization of the special theory, Einstein's thoughts about Newton's Universal Law of Gravitation and how they affect the space time continuum. The last part explains how the universe actually works on a cosmic scale. These things may sound too complicated at first glance but Einstein was able to explain them to his readers in the book without sounding too technical.
Reading Einstein's “Relativity: The Special and General Theory” may not sound very attractive at first. We've all heard of Einstein's equation but how many people can actually explain what it means. This book will elucidate all the iconic thoughts of Einstein without requiring a physics degree from the reader.
Comic History of the United States by Bill NyeIndia 2 subscribers add
For American journalist and humorist Edgar Wilson Nye who wrote under the pen name Bill Nye in the late 19th century, facts are not to be presented in their newborn, bare state. They should be properly draped and embellished before they can be presented before the public. Hence, in the Comic History of the United States published in 1894, he gives his readers the facts. But in a bid to make the historical figures more human he describes them as “people who ate and possibly drank, people who were born, flourished and died, not grave tragedians posing perpetually for their photographs.”
Nye was educated in rural Wisconsin and moved to Wyoming to study law. His light-hearted, flippant takes on the serious questions of the day became extremely popular and he moved into journalism. Later, he established his own newspaper, the Laramie Boomerang.
Beginning with the discovery of America, a chapter in which he describes Queen Isabella and her advocacy of Christopher Columbus' famous voyage in lighter vein, Bill Nye takes a tongue in cheek look at Balboa, Cortez and the discovery of moonshine whiskey. He further delves into such serious matters as the Drawbacks of Being a Colonist, The Personality of Washington, The Dutch at New Amsterdam, The American Civil War and its alleged causes and the final Reconstruction by Johnson and Grant.
Nye maintains his sly humor and irreverence for honored figures like Stonewall Jackson, Generals Lee, Grant and Sherman, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington and others. Bill Nye's technique of taking hold of the facts and dressing them up with his own brand of playful banter is quite amusing and entertaining. The Comic History of the United States is quite appealing to readers of all ages, especially when they know the “real facts.”
However, present day readers may find some of the passages and Bill Nye's remarks quite offensive and politically incorrect for the more enlightened times we now live in. His remarks on African Americans and American Indians can be quite jarring. The Comic History of the United States can become a platform for discussing attitudes and perspectives that were present in the last century.
Besides being a journalist and humor writer, Bill Nye was also very popular on the lecture circuit and regaled audiences all over the country with his humorous speeches. In today's time, he would probably be regarded as a standup comedian and as such, his views would certainly not be taken as grounds for an offense.
