These are books that I have got hold of recently. The district human development reports were given by the planning department to study. A new State Human Development Report is being planned. What is unique about the State Human Development Report 2004 and the district reports is that they were written by locals in their respective fields. It is usually outsourced to some organization to write, but not so in the case of Nagaland.And the layout designs done by Merimvu Doulo of Artworks Kohima is really good. Various government reports being published in recent years are nice. We are very good at that. The content of such reports is a different matter :-). The District Human Development Reports are too costly. Three district reports published in 2009 are priced at ₹ 1200 (or 1300?) and 8 district reports published in 2013 are priced at ₹1000 each. This is too costly and will discourage people to buy. The content also does not justify the price, for it is not a picture book.
There are five thematic reports on Livelihood and Employment, Traditional Agriculture, Communitization and Health, The Role of Women, and Rural-Urban Migration.
The other books that I bought online are:
1. JESUS AND MONEY: BEN WITHERINGTON III
2. ICHABOD TOWARDS HOME (THE JOURNEY OF GOD'S GLORY): WALTER BRUEGGEMANN
3. BUSINESS AS MISSION: MICHAEL R. BAER
4. WHO IS JESUS?: SCOT MCKNIGHT
5. TURNING POINTS (DECISIVE MOMENTS IN THE HISTORY OF CHRISTIANITY): MARK NOLL
6. AFTER YOU BELIEVE (WHY CHRISTIAN CHARACTER MATTERS
These six books were bought at a total price of just ₹1212. They were bought at www.christianstore.in which were much cheaper than flipkart, amazon, infibeam, etc. And therefore the price of the book influenced the book selection. I won't have bought NT Wright's book even if I wanted to, if it is too costly. And I bought I bought Ichabod although the title is not attractive to me at the moment, because it is cheap and it is by Brueggemann. I have heard of him and have wanted to read his work.
