Un buste de grès âgé de quatre mille ans d'un prêtre barbu le représente l'épaule gauche couverte d'un châle ou d'une cape. Les Indiens se drapent aujourd'hui encore de façon identique de leur châle. La tradition indienne de la laine s'étend sur plus de quatre millénaires, depuis l'époque de la civilisation de la vallée de l'Indus. Pashmina est une aventure considérable et audacieuse qui vous fera faire le plus grand tour des étoffes les plus fines du monde. Son sujet : l'histoire des textiles indiens, avec leurs motifs, leurs couleurs, jusqu'aux vêtements contemporains. Outre le patronage royal qui a nourri cette industrie textile, les techniques qui permirent la création des châles de pashmina, la lente et subtile évolution des brillants motifs, cet ouvrage présente une image détaillée sur les diverses ornementations, les différences de style, la continuité de la tradition et les nouvelles orientations. Brillamment et richement illustré, Pashmina vous donne une image vivante, colorée et détaillée de l'inspiration qui guide chaque fil des étoffes de pashmina.

Born in Jammu & Kashmir, Babar leaves his town for good with a promise of never coming back to the troubled land which is engulfed with terrorism and no opportunities for young people. In this book, he takes us on his life's journey from the corporate world to the world which is wild. He asks questions and tries to find answers and keeps responding to the problems around him which turn into a sequence of events that force him to come back. This is Babar’s journey to discover his true calling to become a Pashmina artist, activist and a Pashmina goat shepherd (the only one in the world) to save this magnificent specie in Himalayas and the Pashmina eco-system that preserves the ancient culture, religion and heritage of Himalayas. A journey to shed excess baggage (both internal and external) and become 6 times thinner, to bring in social positive change. Along the way he explains the Wisdom of Shepherds which he gets from this tribe which are lessons for businesses, stat-ups, students, home-makers, executives, consultants, policy makers, politicians and more. A simple yet inspiring journey, to save Authentic Pashmina, which is rare to see in these hyper times.

The Indian Constitution is the largest written constitution that guarantees equality to women and empowers the State to take affirmative actions in favour of women. India has adopted International conventions for protection of rights of women and granting them equality and ratified the Convention on Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) in the year 1993. The National Policy for Women Empowerment was presented in 2001, the goal of that policy to bring about the advancement, development and empowerment of women and enable women to become financially independent. Currently, India is the only country where the economic gender gap is larger than the political gender gap. Women are required to understand their own potential and overcome social barriers. With constant support of the government, change in stereotype mindset and skill development in women, India will continue witnessing gradual increase in women entrepreneurship in future. The aim of this book is to show the latest state of knowledge on the topic of women entrepreneurship, the role of women in business and women empowerment in India. Many aspects relating to role of women in business, sustainable business development and aspects going beyond economic empowerment of women are discussed in addition
