Kanak is one of Houston’s most respected and successful doctors. Neil is the charming Head Boy from St. Teresa’s and her first childhood crush. Fate had reunited the two young lovers during their medical residency at the Baylor College of Medicine. In a life that had an extraordinary ability to leave her unfulfilled, Neil and her Pa, Keshav, were the only two men who had brought peace and happiness to the motherless Kanak. They had supported her, applauded her, and held her close through the turns of life. Rukhsar is the beautiful twenty-four-year-old daughter of Barqat Malik, the noor of her Abbu’s eyes. Ashar is the handsome lover, who yearns to make his Rukhsar smile. Unlike Kanak, Rukhsar did have a caring Ammi. She also had a proud Abbu. However, she was eager to cast them off, along with the traditional values that she was expected to represent. Ashar was the only thread that still reeled her in, but even that could never be enough for a girl who just wanted to fly away. Black, White and the Grays in Between is an emotional saga of hope, betrayed dreams, and the endless shades of gray. Set across three generations and three cities - Houston, Hyderabad, and the Bombay of the ‘70s - this is a story about love that is often selfless and self-doubting, and the unexpected virtue of listening to your heart.

A wildly fantastical and ever relevant dramatic masterpiece that reinvented modern theater in the twentieth century. In the midst of a war-ravished city, a brothel caters to the elaborate role-playing fantasies of men from all walks of life. A of the gas company employee pretends to be a bishop, another customer dons a judge’s robe, and still another acts a victorious general, while a bank clerk defiles the Virgin Mary. These perverse costumed masquerades parody and stylize the nature of the anarchic political struggle that rages outside, eventually convincing even the revolutionaries that the illusions are preferable to reality. In a stunning series of macabre scenes, Genet presents his caustic view of man and society. Deeply influential and widely acclaimed, Genet’s play maintains a profound and critical reflection of contemporary society.

What woeful maternal fancy produced such a monster? This was once the question asked when a deformed infant was born. From classical antiquity through to the Enlightenment, the monstrous child bore witness to the fearsome power of the mother's imagination. What such a notion meant and how it reappeared, transformed, in the Romantic period are the questions explored in this book, a study of theories linking imagination, art and monstrous progeny.

This file includes Jefferson's presidential papers from "A Compilation of the Messages and Papers of the Presidents" edited by James Richardson and all four volumes of "Memoir, Correspondence, and Miscellanies from the Papers of Thomas Jefferson" edited by Thomas Jefferson Randolph. According to Wikipedia: "Thomas Jefferson (April 13, 1743 – July 4, 1826) was the third President of the United States (1801–1809) and the principal author of the Declaration of Independence (1776). An influential Founding Father, Jefferson envisioned America as a great "Empire of Liberty" that would promote republicanism. Jefferson served as the wartime Governor of Virginia (1779–1781), barely escaping capture by the British in 1781. Many people disliked his tenure, and he did not win office again in Virginia. From mid-1784 through late 1789 Jefferson lived outside the United States. He served in Paris initially as a commissioner to help negotiate commercial treaties. In May 1785 he succeeded Benjamin Franklin as the U.S. Minister to France. He was the first United States Secretary of State (1789–1793) under George Washington and advised him against a national bank and the Jay Treaty. He was the second Vice President (1797–1801) under John Adams. Winning on an anti-federalist platform, Jefferson took the oath of office and became President of the United States in 1801. As president he negotiated the Louisiana Purchase (1803), and sent the Lewis and Clark Expedition (1804–1806) to explore the vast new territory and lands further west. Jefferson sponsored embargo laws that escalated tensions with Britain and France, leading to war with Britain in 1812 shortly after he left office. He idealized the independent yeoman farmer as exemplar of republican virtues, distrusted cities and financiers, and favored states' rights and a limited federal government. Jefferson supported the separation of church and state and was the author of the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom (1779, 1786). Jefferson's revolutionary view on individual religious freedom and protection from government authority have generated much interest with modern scholars. He was the eponym of Jeffersonian democracy and the co-founder and leader of the Democratic-Republican Party, which dominated American politics for 25 years."
