Default Need help locating a particular book, dvd, cd... post here!

I am looking for this book "90 minutes at Entebbe" by William Stevenson for my collection. If you know any bookshop where it is available, it will be of great help.

If any of you have this book, I might need your help in a photocopy of the same, in case I do not get to buy the book.

I have a small powerpoint presentation on the raid carried out.
I can send it across if you are interested.
I have some photos of Entebbe airport also, but somehow they do not cover the building where the raid was carried out.

Default Looking for the DVD of Discovery of India

I have been searching for the DVD/VCD of Bharat Ek Khoj a serial on DD by Shyam Benegal. This was based on Pandit Nehru's Discovery of India. The serial was telecast in late eighties (1988 -1990 sometime then) on DD. Its a fine picturisation of our history. I need it for my daughters.

Any help in getting the DVD/VCDs of the serial will be highly appreciated. If I cannot buy (for reasons of non-availability), I am OK copying it from someone's personal collection (i.e. only if they allow).

Arindam, try the "blossoms book house" (church street, opp amoeba). they keep most books and also their rare book collection is quite good. Important thing is, they prevent piracy by buying books from people and sell those second hand books. That way, you prevent pirated books. You can buy from them, read the book, keep it if you like it, otherwise return them at a slightly lower price than the buying price.

Address:
#84/6, Opp to Amoeba,
Church street, B'lore-560001.
Phone: +91.80.25320400,25559733

Sorry Arindam, a 'relative' has borrowed it and I still haven't got it back. Turned the house upside down though, and found some old car parts.

@v1p3r: hmm! I too have some friends/relative like you and, you know what, once one of them claimed the book is his . Problem is I do not deface books, writing my name or identification anywhere.
