The Ultimate Brexit Diary

by S.L.C S.L.C

THE ULTIMATE BREXIT DIARY

Britain first joined the EU in 1973. On the 23rd of June 2016, in a Brexit referendum, the people of Britain voted to leave the EU. The votes were 17,410,742 (51.89%) to 16,141,241(48.11%), in favour of leaving the EU. Such a tight result for a major decision!

This is an Ultimate Brexit diary and it is a journey of the events that led to the â??British Exit’ vote from the EU. I will share facts and true feelings of mine and the opinions of other people in this journal.

The diary covers Brexit news, month by month until the 29th of March 2017, when the Prime Minister of Britain, Theresa May, triggered Article 50 which begins the formal 2-year process of leaving the EU. There are still so many questions that remain unanswered for both British and EU citizens.

The diary looks at major news and the effects of the Brexit vote in Britain and the EU. It explores questions asked by many and the concerns about the future. It looks at the economy, politics, immigration and employment. What are the rights of EU citizens that have lived and worked in Britain for many years? What will a future Britain look like?

Surveillance, Privacy and Security: Citizensâ?? Perspectives (PRIO New Security Studies)

This volume examines the relationship between privacy, surveillance and security, and the alleged privacy-security trade-off, focusing on the citizen’s perspective.


Recent revelations of mass surveillance programmes clearly demonstrate the ever-increasing capabilities of surveillance technologies. The lack of serious reactions to these activities shows that the political will to implement them appears to be an unbroken trend. The resulting move into a surveillance society is, however, contested for many reasons. Are the resulting infringements of privacy and other human rights compatible with democratic societies? Is security necessarily depending on surveillance? Are there alternative ways to frame security? Is it possible to gain in security by giving up civil liberties, or is it even necessary to do so, and do citizens adopt this trade-off? This volume contributes to a better and deeper understanding of the relation between privacy, surveillance and security, comprising in-depth investigations and studies of the common narrative that more security can only come at the expense of sacrifice of privacy. The book combines theoretical research with a wide range of empirical studies focusing on the citizen’s perspective. It presents empirical research exploring factors and criteria relevant for the assessment of surveillance technologies. The book also deals with the governance of surveillance technologies. New approaches and instruments for the regulation of security technologies and measures are presented, and recommendations for security policies in line with ethics and fundamental rights are discussed.


This book will be of much interest to students of surveillance studies, critical security studies, intelligence studies, EU politics and IR in general.

Art of Spiritual Living

by Saravana Rajasena K

A digest of spiritual life as mentioned in Thirukural(a two lines poetic form book), a book written by great tamil scholar and sage Thriuvalluvar long back, 2000 years back in palm leaflets. Thirukural was considered to be the handbook guide for the whole humanity to live a perfect life in terms of spirituality and righteousness.

This digest of Thirukural deals with all aspects of spiritual life in a crisp manner. This is not the translation of Thirukural but conversion of the actual essence of its verses into quote form. Righteous principles and importance of living a spiritual life as mentioned in Thirukural has been presented in this book.



Bhagavad Gita

by C Radhakrishnan

Modern reading, comprehensive study of the science of the Self, in-depth discussion on ancient Eastern philosophy and scientific correlation of Vedantic cosmology – this new book has all these and a lot more. In contrast to old and monopolized religious interpretations on the Gita, this book brings out the essence of Vedanta in its clear and pristine form, devoid of all superstition and standing on its own under strict scientific scrutiny. This is the first ever scientific reading of the Gita. It is our guide, friend and companion to a new age – an age of oneness devoid of sectarianism and divisive tendencies – the future of mankind.

This mega work incorporates major features of earlier great commentaries on the Gita, researches hitherto obscure aspects of Vedantic knowledge (the author’s related scientific research on Avyakta was recently published in January 2017 in the Prespacetime Journal Vol 7 Issue 16 – a physics journal focusing on studies in space-time, fundamental forces including gravity and related topics), interprets the entire Bhagavad Gita is the light of the True Self within ourselves with focus on Union, establishes how the wisdom provided in the Gita can help anyone lead a successful and happy life (no self-help books required anymore!) irrespective of religion, gender, nationality, caste or creed, and successfully integrates the Vedantic path with modern life in unbiased, simple and practical manner. There is a common misconception that Upanishad wisdom is reserved for monks and it is neither practical nor possible for the ordinary man to follow in life, but this work convincingly clears that notion.

The book contains the Sanskrit text of the Gita in roman script plus simple translation of every verse. Sanskrit terms used in the Gita are retained at all levels in the commentary. All concepts however deep are presented lucidly making it very easy for objective interpretation even for the beginner.

Originally written in Malayalam (one of the Classical Languages of India), the work was serialized in Mathrubhumi daily – the leading newspaper of Kerala – over a period of two years. Published as book titled â??Gitadarsanam’ in Malayalam language, the work is a bestseller in that language.
