Bhabani Bhatacharya Is Unquestionably One Of The Celebrated Indo English Fiction Writers. Notwithstanding His Rather Scanty Literary Output, He Has Caught The Fancy Of Quite A Large Reading Public And Academics Both At Home And Abroad. No Wonder, Then, If His Latest Novel, Shadow From Ladakh, Has Won For Him The Much Coveted Sahitya Akademi Award For 1967. Besides, He Is A Much-Translated Indian Novelist Writing In English. His Books Have Been Translated Into Twenty-Six Languages Including Fourteen European Languages. In Spite Of The Global Fame That Has Come To Him Spontaneously, He Has Not Yet Been Explored And Evaluated Thoroughly Well With The Empathy Of A Scholar. Only Two Full Length Studies And A Few Articles In Journals And Books Have Appeared On Him, And These, Too, Are Just An Introduction To His Writings, And Do Not Examine Comprehensively Either The Thematic Or The Technical Side Of His Fiction. Hence The Need And Justification For A Book Such As This. The Present Book Undertakes To Make A Thorough And Objective Study Of Bhabani Bhattacharya S Vision, His Dominant Themes And His Concept Of A Creative Writer S Concern With Social Reality. It Has Been My Sincere Endeavour To Make This Study Really Useful And Interesting For Scholars In General And For University Students In Particular. Since There Is A Paucity Of Critical Works On The Contemporary Indian Novelists Writing In English, The Book, It Is Hoped, Will Surely Help The Reader To Understand, And Develop Genuine Interest In, Bhabani Bhattacharya As Well As The Indo English Fiction Of The Recent Decades.

For B.E./B.Tech. Students. This book is intended as an introductory text on MICROWAVE and RADAR ENGNEERING. The fundamentals priciple on microwave theory and techniques are thoroughly expalined in the simplest language. IT contains comprehensive up-to-date text for a standard course on transmission lines, waveguides, passive waveguide components, ferrite devices, microwave tubes, microwave semiconductor devices, microwave measurements, microwave antennas, and various microwave communication systems. This book also covers the RADAR system and microwave propogation at length. This written text is supplemented with a large number of suitable diagrams, photographs and a good number of solved examples for better understanding of subject.
Optics clearly explains the principles of optics using excellent pedagogy to support student learning. Beginning with introductory ideas and equations, K.K. Sharma takes the reader through the world of optics by detailing problems encountered, advanced subjects, and actual applications. Elegantly written, this book rigorously examines optics with over 300 illustrations and several problems in each chapter. The book begins with light propagation in anisotropic media considered much later in most books. Nearly one third of the book deals with applications of optics. This simple idea of merging the sometimes overwhelming and dry subject of optics with real world applications will create better future engineers. It will make ‘optics’ jump off the page for readers and they will see it take shape in the world around them. In presenting optics practically, as well as theoretically, readers will come away not only with a complete knowledge base but a context in which to place it. This book is recommended for optical engineers, libraries, senior undergraduate students, graduate students, and professors. Strong emphasis on applications to demonstrate the relevance of the theory Includes chapter on problem solving of ray deviations, focusing errors, and distortion Problems are included at the end of each chapter for thorough understanding of this dense subject matter
