“Annapurna Circuit Trek: Fairy Tale of Love with Nature” is a compilation of author's unforgettable memories of his unconsummated love affair with nature. You can call it a travelogue, but it’s more than that. A traveller visits a place and returns, but the author has not yet returned. Though his body has pulled his mind towards Delhi, but the memories well crystallized inside the mind are making it wander even now. The author has tried breaking this discordant by penning down his experiences of the trek and loading them on to the readers with a hope that they will carry forward the fairy tale in their love with nature. Motivation: Magnificent waterfalls, towering mountains, pleasurable pine forests, picturesque lakes, meandering rivers/streams, snow clad peaks, slithering pathways, wide valleys, beautiful villages, quivering suspension bridges, docile-yet-petulant yaks, shy blue sheep, cute kids, pretty ladies, smiling men, bright sunshine, dark clouds, cold nights, enthralling views, and everlasting unconditional love.

The mass migration of the Boer farmers from Cape Colony to escape British domination in 1835-36 - the Great Trek - has always been a potent icon of Africaaner nationalism and identity. For African nationalists, the Mfecane - the vast movement of the Black populations in the interior following the emergence of a new Zulu kingdom as a major military force in the early 19th century - offers an equally powerful symbol of the making of a nation. With their parallel visions of populations on the move to establish new states, these two stories became part of divided South Africa’s separate mythologies, treated as unconnected events taking place in separate universes. For the first time, in this groundbreaking book, accounts of both migrations are brought together and examined. In uniting these separate visions of African and Afrikaaner history, Norman Etherington provides a fascinating picture of a major turning point in South African history, and points the way for future work on the period.

But they eventually had to go into hiding and were sheltered by families in the region who risked their lives by doing so.In June of this year, several members of the family returned to the region to dedicate a granite bench in honor of the courageous efforts of its people.

This book addresses the practices and challenges of innovation in business. It is for those in large organizations that seek a way to re-imagine how they do business as well as smaller companies looking for competitive advantages. The book proposes a new design perspective which challenges ideas about the right way to succeed in business. The ultimate goal is to show organizational leaders the value of creativity, and inspire the right-brain thinkers to expect a position at the boardroom table when innovation is a must. The authors provide an innovation model to work from and guidelines to follow, but ultimately the answers reside in the people and infrastructure designed to promote creativity. Promoting the value of right-thinking at the right time is the primary message and we explain why. Innovation is not magical, mystical or available to the creative few, it is a perspective that must be nurtured, supported and encouraged. This book shows you how.

Will southern Africa explode? Are there alternatives to violent revolution? Can other countries assist South Africa, Namibia, and Zimbabwe in achieving majority rule? Or can the problems be solved only by the peoples of each nation? And what should be done by the West to aid development, encourage racial harmony, and promote the general welfare? For more than a generation Robert Rotberg has visited and written about southern Africa. He has not only studied the history and politics of the area but also has steeped himself in the economic, environmental, and geographic factors that have helped create conflict there. Rotberg has blended sophisticated political knowledge with personal experience to recount the past and make possible an understanding of the future. The result is a timely, wise, and lucid portrait of three nations in search of a destiny. Suffer the Future is a balanced account aimed at making general readers, as well as students of international problems, aware of the realistic alternatives for policy in and toward southern Africa.
