The Fifty-50 Marriage : Return To Intimacy
by Vijay Nagaswami
Young couples who have read The 24 X 7 marriage: Smart Strategies for Good Beginnings, Dr. Vijay Nagaswami's 2008 bestseller, may be asking themselves: 'What now? What if the magic leaves us?' Couples married for more than 3 years may be asking themselves:'where has our marriage gone?'

The Fifty-50 Marriage: Return To Intimacy, the second in Nagaswami's series on the 'New Indian Marriage', caters to such readers as have moved on - to committed relationships that may have nevertheless lost some of their earlier spark.

But it is never too late to reignite it, says this self-help book.

Nagaswami, trusted counsellor to thousands of couples around the country, once more leads his readers with a firm hand (and gentle wit) to new places they can take their marriage. Where romantic love cedes to intimate love and where passion morphs into sexual love. Where the relationship becomes an equal partnership - a Fifty-50 Marriage.

The Man Who Knew Infinity: A Life of the Genius Ramanujan
by Robert Kanigel
In 1913, a young, unschooled Indian clerk wrote a letter to G.H.Hardy,begging the pre-eminent English Mathematician's opinion on several ideas he had about numbers.Realizing the letter was the work of a genius,Hardy arranged for Srinivasa Ramanujan to come to England.Thus began one of the most improbable and productive collaborations ever chronicled....

With a passion for rich and evocative detail,Robert Kanigel takes us from the teeming slums of Madras to the courts and chapels of Cambridge University,where the Devout Hindu Ramanujan,"The Prince of Intuition," tested his brilliant theories alongside the sophisticated and eccentric Hardy,"the Apostle of Proof."In time, Ramanujan's creative intensity took its toll:he died at the age of thirty-two and left behind a magical and inspired legacy that is still being plumbed for its secrets today.
