Excursions in Past and Present is a collection of twenty short stories and essays which the author wrote over a period of the last two decades. They cover a widely diverse range of topics such as problems of faith, general village life as the author saw before as a child and sees now as a senior person, human relationship and solidarity, teachers as authorities for the author in his later life, author’s yearning for food items of his childhood, and nuances noticed by the author in the languages he came across.

We live in a world where we follow ideological, social, religious or philosophical concepts of life. They determine our attitude or behavior towards others. This is what this collection of short stories and essays is about. In the collection the author has tried to present his vision of events and observations which he heard from his elders or which he himself witnessed, remembered and imagined during his life. Characters and events in these short stories and essays span over a period starting from the twentieth century up to the present. Each story is a narration of strong and weak sides of human behaviour.

The present collection of the short stories and essays is author’s first non-scientific work.

Solvents and Solutions is a systematic compilation of important problems and developments in the investigation of selected properties of solvents and solutions published during the last three decades. The author places emphasis on explaining the basic concepts involved in understanding the properties and behavior of various solvents and solutions of electrolytes and nonelectolytes in a consistent manner. After a description of general characteristics of structure of solvents and solutions and the solubility of electrolytes and nonelectrolytes under normal temperature and pressure conditions, the book first deals with different aspects of the density and the refractive index of solvents and dilute as well as concentrated solutions, and finally with the transport (i.e. viscosity and electric conductivity) and thermal properties of solvents and solutions. Contents of different chapters are not only self-contained but are practically independent of each other.

The book is written as a practical guide for researchers who are looking for an up-to-date overview of the physical and transport properties of solvents and solutions, and as a reference source for workers in chemical industries and related fields and for graduate students of chemical engineering and physical chemistry.

The subject matter of the book deals with the description of metastable zone width and processes and phenomena associated with metastability of solutions and melts. Main emphasis is placed on low-temperature solutions which are usually involved in crystallization in different industries but melts are considered in view of the fact that crystallization of fats usually occurs from melts. Starting from the basic knowledge of solutions and fundamentals of crystallization processes, different topics are organized and discussed in a general and unified way with appropriate support of published literature and illustrative figures. The presentation of contents of different chapters has been kept at elementary level, with emphasis on the interpretation of different observations using basic concepts of nucleation and growth of crystals and undergraduate level mathematics.
