In those forest labs, the brightest thinker–philosophers contemplated the universe, reflected on ancient texts called the Vedas and came up with startling insights into questions we still don’t have final answers to, like:
• What is the universe made of?
• How do I know I’m looking at a tree when I see one?
• Who am I?
My body, my mind, my intelligence, my emotions, or none of the above? And where did they put those explosive findings? In a sprawling body of goosebumpy and fascinating oral literature called the Upanishads! Intimidated? Don’t be! For this joyful, fun guide to some of India’s longest-lasting secular wisdoms, reinterpreted for first-time explorers by Roopa Pai, is guaranteed to keep you turning the pages.

Combining in himself the passion of an entrepreneur, the mind of a nerd, the discipline of an athlete, the curiosity of an explorer, the heart of a patriot and the soul of a philosopher, Milind has made the stunning-and apparently seamless- transition from champion swimmer to supermodel to actor to extreme sportsperson to women's fitness activist, enabler and proselytiser, all in one lifetime.
How does he do it? What makes him tick? On the twenty-fifth anniversary of 'Made in India', the breakout pop music video of the 1990s that captured the apna-time-aagaya zeitgeist of post-liberalization India and made him the nation's darling across genders and generations, Milind talks about his fascinating life-controversies, relationships, the breaking of vicious habits like smoking, alcohol, rage, and more-in a freewheeling, bare-all (easy, ladies-we're talking soul-wise!) memoir.
Co-authored with bestselling author Roopa Pai, MADE IN INDIA is a rare glimpse into the mind and heart of a very unusual man that will leave you thoughtful, awed and inspired.
At it stop, is the home of the absolute Ruler of Mithya, the brave and kind Shoon Ya. He rules over the eight worlds that bob peace fully in Dariya, lit by the Tarasun and its 32 stars that light each world in different colours –emerald green, amethyst purple, ruby red… But danger lurks beneath the surface. In the fiery lands under the ocean bed, is imprisoned Shoon Ya’s evil twin, the fearsome demon Shaap Azur, just as powerful but All Bad.
How much longer can Shoon Ya keep him under control? Not too long. When Shaap Azur escapes, he seizes all the stars, leaving Mithya’s eight worlds in darkness. The people of Mithya are horrified and separate, until three young, brave children of Mithya, gifted with special abilities come to their rescue.

Over 150 years ago, in 1870, a public park was inaugurated in Bangalore.
Designed by British engineer Richard Sankey, it spread over 100 acres and
encompassed features typical to the city—granite outcrops, lush greenery,
wide avenues and government buildings. Originally named Meade’s Park, it
has been known to generations of Bangaloreans as Cubbon Park—sanctuary,
lung space, thoroughfare, battlefield, picnic spot, repository of urban
biodiversity, and public park.
In this book, the first of its kind about Cubbon Park, author, columnist and
true-blue Bangalorean Roopa Pai, attempts to decode the enduring appeal of
the Park. Historical sketches trace the story of not just Cubbon Park, but that of
Mysore state and the city itself. Her conversations with Bangaloreans of today
show the Park in all its contested glory, even as she writes about the open music
spaces it once hosted and its diverse flora and fauna, the powerful lurking at its
fringes, waiting to gobble it up, and the citizen activists who tirelessly protect it.
Heart-warming and meticulously researched, Cubbon Park is an enduring
snapshot of a precious green space that is as much an idea as a physical entity,
as fragile as it is powerful, as divisive and as it is unifying, and always central
to the city’s imagination.
