Memoirs of a Hindu princess by Françoise Levie( Visual )

4 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This biographical portrait of Gayatri Devi, the outspoken daughter and granddaughter of the Maharajas, spans modern India's history from British rule, through the struggle for independence to today's modern state. It is enriched with archival footage and home movies showing scenes of colonial splendor from a vanished way of life. Born in 1920, Gayatri was married at twenty to the dashing Prince of Jaipur, with whom she lived a glamorous life on an international scale. After independence and the slow dismantling of princely powers, she continued to stay in the limelight, and was hostess to the Kennedys, the Queen of England and Nikita Kruschev. Always dedicated to the welfare of her people, the Princess sought to emancipate girls living in Purdah by starting India's first public school. She was elected as a state senator in 1962, and held that seat until 1978. During Indira Gandhi's rule, the Princess was jailed along with other political opponents and her palace was ransacked for its treasures. Today, known as Rajmatah Sahiba, the mother of the people, she continues to look after her schools and rebel against injustice and corruption

The man who wanted to classify the world by Françoise Levie( Visual )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2015 in English and French and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1934, a Belgian visionary named Paul Otlet conceived of a library with no physical books whose contents could be viewed on a screen. His obsession was to classify, encode and unify books and documents published all over the world. Over the years, he and his staff would fill in 12 million index cards. His classification system is regarded today as similar to hypertext, which enables us to navigate the internet. A pacifist and an internationalist, Otlet was one of the driving forcesbehind the League of Nations. He persuaded the architect Le Corbusier to design a World City dedicated to Peace, Knowledge and Fraternity. This beautiful film interweaves a vast fund of recently discovered documents from his archive with autobiographical material to create a fascinating piece of intellectual history
