    $3.99$12.99

    Once a kingdom in its own right, Zanskar is now a unique part of Southern Ladakh, and comprises less than 16,000 inhabitants.
    Cut off entirely from the rest of the world for at least 7 months every year by heavy snow, with no road access or airport, the people are still resilient, hospitable and hard working. Their adversity gives rise to one of the most exciting treks in the world, known as the Chadar Ice Trek in January and February each year, going from Padum in the South, up the frozen Zanskar River, to Nimmo near Leh, a distance of some 105 Km.

    Chris Hertzog, a well known researcher in Anti-aging Medicine (AAM), has visited the area many times, and wanted in this brief book, to dedicate it to a very special community with their unique way of life, in an area known as ‘The Top of The World’.

    Buddhism is the religion of more than 500 million people around the globe. The majority of those people live in Asia but there are substantial Buddhist communities in other continents. There are two main Buddhist traditions, Theravada (The School of the Elders) and Mahayana (The Great Vehicle). Buddhism is not strictly a religion and is often described a philosophy of life.

    According to Theravada scripture the Buddha (Siddartha Gautama) was born in the 5th century BCE. He was the son of King Śuddhodana, the ruler of a small kingdom in what is modern day Nepal. Shortly after his birth, eight Brahmins were called upon to predict the child’s future. Seven Brahmins prophesised that the young prince would either be a great ruler, or renounce worldly pleasures and live the life of a holy man.

    One however, was sure the child would be a holy man. The King had great worldly ambitions for his son therefore kept the Prince within the confines of the royal palace. At age 29 the prince escaped confinement and had several encounters with the outside world. These encounters became known in scripture as the four sights.

    Seducing Goddess Durga During The Clinton Era

    Our perception of recent history has been warped by three big events: the over-hyped millennial change (20th to 21st century) that got intertwined with the Dotcom Bubble; the traumatic “9-11” outrage with its catastrophically aggressive responses; and the creepy arrival of our “always on” connectivity to the “hive mind” … in the form of Facebook, Twitter, and Google. Added to which (gasp!) there’s the 2008-09 collapse of our financial system!

    With those 18 roller-coaster years tormenting our minds we’ve allowed (through neglect) the 1990s to slip into obscurity. Might “Monica Lewinsky” be the first thing you recall about the 1990s? Turns out those Clinton years are pockmarked by far more political and economic corruption than the sex, race, and LSD obsessed 1960s!

    From 1991 forwards a slew of reckless geopolitical manoeuvres were initiated, which taken together completely upended a western world that had just enjoyed 45 stable years. The catalyst, but not the cause, was the official (December 26, 1991) dissolution of the Soviet Union. An event long anticipated by a psychotic Elite who had grabbed ownership of the West while JFK’s corpse was still warm.

    The military “New World Order” was begun by Operation Desert Storm. But the economic “New World Order” did not emerge until after 1st January 1995: the day the World Trade Organization was declared ‘international law’. For your benefit, those two major developments have been intelligently integrated into this book’s main narrative: the Author’s sudden confrontation with a radically transformed employment landscape.

    One of the great appeals of this 210 page book — perfect for a weekend read, or long-haul flight — is the accessible way in which real geopolitics have been interwoven with the Author’s own 1996 predicaments, as viewed from Abu Dhabi and Kuala Lumpur.

    The reader also gains unique anthropological insights as the Author recounts (in explicit detail) his lustful encounter with two Muslim females. Believe it or not, the 1990s offered a uniquely relaxed sexual atmosphere in several of the more progressive Islamic nations. Increasing numbers of Muslim women were quietly seeking out sexual thrills (e.g., oral sex without vaginal penetration), Western boyfriends, and even Western husbands. Yet by year 2000 this trend was being vehemently opposed by Saudi-sponsored Islamic radicalism.

    Read this book to celebrate not only what was, but also what might have been. Precious few new titles manage to both educate and entertain like this one does. Whether male or female, you will be thrilled by Outsourced World [Book-1]

    It is 327 BC and Alexander the Great ventures into India. He fights Rajah Porus and his raging elephants and soon befriends a yogi named Calanus. Alexander also sends for his wife Roxanne, the Afghani princess, one of the world’s loveliest women. This novel of ancient India evokes war, romance, the quest for truth…
    Tigers, snakes, monkeys, dark forests, monsoons and sacred rivers, raging elephants in chariot-led armies, walled cities, ornate temples, yogis and fakirs and Brahmins and the exotic panorama of India: this is what Alexander the Great and his army encountered. It was one of the earliest clashes of East and West. Although it was very destructive, cultural fusion and new ideas came about.
    This historical novel features Philip and Olympias, Alexander’s companions, eunuchs, oracles, deserts, floods, philosophy, the underworld, and much more. The writer was inspired by accounts from Plutarch, Arrian, Strabo, various modern accounts, The Upanishads, The Bhagavad Gita, etc.
