Description: Three essays by a long-time student of Indian culture, probing various facets of Indian culture and some of the challenges it has to face today. First two look at the Indian mind at two extreme periods of India’s history: at the time of the Indus valley civilization with a discussion of the divisive Aryan invasion theory and the second, in post-Independence era, with a study of the deep imprint left by the colonial rule and how the Indian mind has been momentarily deprived of its self-confidence and creativity. The thrid text contrasts attitudes toward Nature in Western and in Indian traditions, and argues that an approach to Nature rooted in the Indian world-view can best reverse our course to self-destruction.
