When the spring came the people - what was left of them - moved back by the old paths from the sea. But this year strange things were happening, terrifying things that had never happened before. Inexplicable sounds and smells; new, unimaginable creatures half glimpsed through the leaves. What the people didn't, and perhaps never would, know, was that the day of their people was already over...

Our family legacies, both positive and negative, are passed down from one generation to the next in ways that are not fully understood. This secondary form of trauma, which Gita Baack calls “Inherited Trauma,” has not received adequate attention—a failing that perpetuates cycles of pain, hatred, and violence. In The Inheritors, readers are given the opportunity to reflect on the inherited burdens they carry, as well as the resilience that has given them the power of survival. Through engaging stories and unique concepts, readers will learn new ways to explore the unknowns in their legacies, reflect on questions that are posed at the end of each chapter, and begin to write their own story.

In 1969, Harold Robbins began his "trilogy of greed" with The Inheritors, a tell-all novel about the entertainment industry. Spanning the years 1955 to 1965, and based on the lives of actual network executives and movie moguls, the novel exposes the sex, power, and politics of mass media. Steve Gaunt is working hard to build his television empire. He's a visionary and a bit of a rebel, making him a hit, both in the ratings and with beautiful women. Sam Benjamin, meanwhile, is building his career through the movies. When they join forces, the partnership has the potential to make them very wealthy and powerful. But it's a dirty business and a rogue industry, and friendships can fall in a heartbeat when money is on the line. In its initial publication, The Inheritors was a timely indictment of an industry on fire. Today, it is a fascinating look back at a time when television was just coming into its own, and how the movie industry dealt with this new threat.

Lohia & Co—one of India’s largest commodity traders, the country’s biggest jute supplier, owner of tea estates, as well as cement, steel, shipping and motor cycle firms, and its own insurance arm—is in trouble. Now a strike, led by ageing Marxist trade union leader Hirenmoy Chakroborty, is destabilizing its Calcutta headquarters—and Aruna the bitter, power-hungry sister of Hari Lohia, the head of the dynasty, is using the opportunity to launch a covert takeover of the business with the help of her two ambitious sons. But Hari Lohia, who single-handedly built up Lohia & Co from a tiny jute trader in the crowded alleys of Barabazar to a sprawling global conglomerate, is not willing to let go of his empire so easily. He comes from a family of survivors, ancestors who moved across the country from Rajasthan with nothing and built their fortunes from scratch. And he discovers unlikely allies in this last great battle he has to fight—Anjali, his tough, cynical sister, a fiery opponent of Aruna’s; and Shivani, his beautiful, rebellious daughter who has always been too busy having love affairs to pay attention to her father’s business. Who will lose? Who will win? And most importantly—will the house of Lohia fall like a pack of cards? Moving from the crumbling offices of Calcutta to hedge funds in Hong Kong, from the Mumbai stock market to nineteenth century Rajasthan, and boasting an enormous cast of characters, The Inheritors is quite simply sensational.

Human activity has irreversibly changed the natural environment. But the news isn't all bad. It's accepted wisdom today that human beings have permanently damaged the natural world, causing extinction, deforestation, pollution, and of course climate change. But in Inheritors of the Earth, biologist Chris Thomas shows that this obscures a more hopeful truth--we're also helping nature grow and change. Human cities and mass agriculture have created new places for enterprising animals and plants to live, and our activities have stimulated evolutionary change in virtually every population of living species. Most remarkably, Thomas shows, humans may well have raised the rate at which new species are formed to the highest level in the history of our planet. Drawing on the success stories of diverse species, from the ochre-colored comma butterfly to the New Zealand pukeko, Thomas overturns the accepted story of declining biodiversity on Earth. In so doing, he questions why we resist new forms of life, and why we see ourselves as unnatural. Ultimately, he suggests that if life on Earth can recover from the asteroid that killed off the dinosaurs, it can survive the onslaughts of the technological age. This eye-opening book is a profound reexamination of the relationship between humanity and the natural world.

Why did Harsh Mariwala leave his family business? Why did the Burman family quit the day-to-day operations of Dabur? How did the Dhingras turn a collapsing business into India's second-largest paint company? The Inheritors offers a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at what goes on in Marico, Dabur, Keventers, Berger Paints, Select Group, Antara, Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas, Luxor and Motilal Oswal. The book focuses on culture, family politics, ego battles, business rivalries and a lot more. And then, of course, there are the inheritors themselves-some take the businesses to even greater heights while others lead them to doom.

There'S Insanity In Our Family & It Runs In Our Blood The Blood Of The Vaidic Brahmins & One Or Two Of Us Go Mad In Every Generation.' From The Ritual-Bound Household Of An Orthodox Scholar In A Small Village In Bengal In 1897 To Germany And Mumbai At The Turn Of The New Millennium, The Inheritors Follows The Shifting Life Patterns Of A Family Through A Melange Of Narratives, Memories And Characters. The Unrelenting Puritanism Of Nyayaratna Bishnupada Deb Sharma Drives His Daughter Radharani To Insanity And Throws Into Sharp Relief His Grandson Shibkali'S Feeble Attempt To Break Free. Giribala Voices Her Resentment Against Her Circumstances Through A Lifetime Of Silence, Her Destiny Finding An Echo In Her Daughter Alo, Tragic Victim Of Her Husband'S Sexual Perversions. And Pramatha'S Depraved Radicalism Is Set Against Shashishekhar'S Progressive Outlook Which Symbolizes The Most Significant Departure From The Stifling Constraints Of His Community. Even As It Inherits The Deadwood Of The Past, Each Generation Strives To Liberate Itself, Setting The Stage For The Eternal Conflict Between Tradition And Change, Between A Legacy And Its Inheritors. Aruna Chakravarti Draws Upon History And Myth, Religion And Folklore, Rituals And Culinary Practices To Create A Vivid Portrait Of A Community Of Vaidic Kulin Brahmins. The Narrative, Oscillating Back And Forth In Time, Weaves A Vibrant Tapestry Of Life Differing Ideologies And Sensibilities, Suicides And Desertions, Marriages And Infidelities, Bigotry And Liberalism Set In The Larger Context Of A Nation'S Inexorable March Towards Independence And A Society Caught On The Cusp Of Conservatism And Modernity.
