Ghosts of Makara

Growing up Down-Under in a Lost World of Yesteryears

Ghosts of Makara: Growing up Down-Under in a lost world of yesteryears, is the moving memoir of a son of an Irish-German immigrant family growing up during the 1920s and the Depression-wracked '30s in a wind-blasted, yet picturesque, Pacific corner of colonial New Zealand. Makara Beach could have been Middle-Earth of the Lord of the Rings, the Academy Award-winning movie which 70 years later used Makara as one of its filming locations. In this sepia-tinted, nostalgic, first-person family album, the author evokes a lost era Down Under, one without television, the Internet, or (early on) even radio, when he and his younger brothers and sisters acted out their own stories and dreamed their own dreams. It was truly a different world, where barefoot Bobbits grew up with a deep love of nature and respect for family--a world we can learn much from today.

A ROOKIE & The Passage of The Mental Health Law: The Indonesian

Nova Riyanti Yusuf. MD, psychiatrist, was a Member of Parliament for the House of Representative of the republic of Indonesia in 2009-2014. She initiated the mental Health Bill in 2009, advacated the urgency, created model projects, and successfully chaired the Mental Health Bill Working Committee until it’s passed into law on July 8, 2014. The Law of the Republic of Indonesia No. 18/2014 on Mental Health has been enacted since August 8, 2014. However, the process was a winding road therefore this memoir is born. Once the bill was passed into law, she did the ever-surprising gesture of relief by fountain dipping in the parliament complex. It was her vow and when she executed her vow she was accompanied by the Health Ministry officials, psychiatrists, members of consumer group, people with mental disorders, expert staffs, etc. In 2012-2014, Democratic Party Faction appointed her as Deputy Chairwoman of Commision IX overseeing health, manpower and transmigration, food and drug, and family planning and population affairs. Her task was not only to deal with the Mental Health Bill but also other duties as one of the commission leaders. But the Mental Health Bill was her personal indicator as a legislator who lives up to what she believes in. And one of the urgencies of the Mental Health Law is to eradicate the violations of human rights in Indonesia, which the Basic Health Research 2013 indicates the heartbreaking practice of approximately 56,000 people with mental diorders being shakled. And she dreams that the Mental Health Law can also play an important role in reviving the noble values of the great nation and building the next generation of Indonesia with formidable character. Her passion for mental health is in line with her educational background. She’s a certified psychiatrist graduating from Psychiatry Specialization Program, Faculty of Medicine, University of Indonesia, Jakarta. Her forensic psychiatry thesis was focusing on the Biopsychosocial Aspects of Suicide Among Two Painters in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. She graduated as a Medical Doctor from Faculty of Medicine, Trisakti University, Jakarta. Currently she still lectures at the Psychiatry Department, Trisakti University, Jakarta. She also established Metaforma Institute in 2007 and it is now in charge of running her free mental health services outreach with Mobile Mental Health Service (MMHS) units. She’s an avid speaker for conference/workshop/talk show with topics ranging from mental health, human rights, population & development, health policy, youth participation, literature, and so on. A passionate psychiatrist, a lecturer, a prolific writer, and a retiring young legislator, this memoir is her 11th book.

I had a very serious discussion with Eka Viora a senior psychiatrist, who was also
my ally in fighting for the passage of Mental Health Law. She still holds her post
as the Director of the Directorate of Mental Health,the Ministry of Health.

Mahatma Gandhi

The Historical Biography

Quite distinct from the abundant literature available on Mahatma Gandhi, this historical biography attempts to articulate the historiography of India's freedom struggle, of which Gandhi was undoubtedly the central figure. Relooking at key issues and themes that have been raised in the research conducted over the past few decades, this is an interpretative essay that seeks to contextualize Gandhi and his ideology of ahimsa and satyagraha. Instead of focusing merely on Gandhi's personal life, Prof Bidyut Chakrabarty conceptualizes the evolution of his ideas in the context of anti-colonial nationalism. A nationalism of the Mahatma that for the first time in the history of the independence struggle reached every village and taluk of the state. A nationalism for a country and a society based on his principles of nai talim (new education) and sarvodaya (upliftment of all). But was it the right path and ideology for a new and emerging nation? Despite being Gandhi-centred, the biography is thus imbued with questions, which it attempts to answer. Through a unique study of one of the most prominent personalities of the twentieth century, it addresses areas of human concerns, which will always remain universal in scope and content.

Social and Political Thought of Mahatma Gandhi

During his campaign against racism in South Africa, and his involvement in the Congress-led nationalist struggle against British colonial rule in India, Mahatma Gandhi developed a new form of political struggle based on the idea of satyagraha, or non-violent protest. He ushered in a new era of nationalism in India by articulating the nationalist protest in the language of non-violence, or ahisma, that galvanized the masses into action. Focusing on the principles of satyagraha and non-violence, and their evolution in the context of anti-imperial movements organized by Gandhi, this fascinating book looks at how these precepts underwent changes reflecting the ideological beliefs of the participants. Assessing Gandhi and his ideology, the text centres on the ways in which Gandhi took into account the views of other leading personalities of the era whilst articulating his theory of action. Concentrating on Gandhiâe(tm)s writings in Harijan, the weekly newspaper he founded, this volume provides a unique contextualized study of an iconic manâe(tm)s social and political ideas.

Mahatma Gandhi, Nonviolent Liberator

A Biography

The story of Mohandas Gandhi, one of the world’s best-loved and most important promoters of freedom and justice, fascinates every generation. Thrown off a South African train for sitting in a “whites only” compartment, Gandhi resolved to oppose injustice wherever he encountered it. His life of resistance led him to a remarkable philosophy of nonviolence that culminated in the freedom struggle in India. Part 2 of the book features a selection of quotations from Gandhi’s essential writings. “Albert Einstein observed, ‘Generations to come ... will scarce believe that such a one as [Mohandas K. Gandhi] ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth.’ Richard Deats’ account of Gandhi’s life and message could not be more timely. It is accessible, concise, and compelling. Read it.” Scott Kennedy Cofounder, Resource Center for Nonviolence Mayor, City of Santa Cruz, California “Richard Deats’ analysis of Gandhi’s search for God and the value of nonviolence is very readable and insightful. Gandhi always believed one cannot find God without first understanding and living a nonviolent lifestyle. This book shows us the way to higher thinking and higher living.” Arun Gandhi, Founder and President M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence, Memphis, Tenn.

In 1914, at 44 years of age, Gandhi returned to India. The fame that preceded him
produced a tumultuous welcome. Nevertheless, he needed time to get
reacquainted with his motherland. He had been away for twenty-one years ...

Mahatma Gandhi

The idea of nonviolent resistance is still as essential and almost as radical today as it was when Mahatma Gandhi (1869–1948) first pioneered in India the protest of political tyranny—in his case against British colonialism—through massive displays of civil disobedience. Gandhi’s ideas of peaceful protest went on to inspire the marches and sit-ins of the American Civil Rights movement and continue to be the foundations for political and social demonstrations around the world. This biography by leading scholar Douglas Allen presents a new and challenging approach to understanding Gandhi’s life—the time in which he lived, how he shaped history, and how his philosophy and practices can be reformulated in ways that are significant and effective today. Allen analyzes his continuing relevance by addressing key issues of truth and ethics, violence and nonviolence, equality and freedom, as well as ideas of exploitation, oppression, religious conflict, and environmental crises. Allen provides a much needed new perspective on Gandhi that allows us to rethink our basic values and priorities. By helping us understand Gandhi’s life and message, he creates a new paradigm for evaluating truth, nonviolence, peace, and morality; and he offers new criteria for assessing our modern approach to standards of living, development, progress, and meaningful human existence.
