The Thinking Indian – What is it About?

That’s the title of my new e-book, to be shortly released. With this e-book, we commence our self-publishing work at matriwords.

The full title reads:

THE THINKING INDIAN

Essays on Indian Socio-Cultural Matters in the Light of Sri Aurobindo

When you read the Prelude and Introduction to the book, you will know why this title makes sense.

Here is a short description of the book:

“This book invites all those concerned with India’s future as a nation and as a civilisation to start thinking and investigating carefully what is said about India in the social-cultural-political discourse and come to one’s own conclusions. For India to rise to her full potential Indians have to start thinking, freely and independently of all ideological preferences and fashionable academic theories, and instead must examine all the data points in the light of the truth of the Indian spirit. Indians must start a personal journey of discovering the Indian spirit, in the Indian way.

“The sociological and cultural observations which form the basis of the eight essays in this volume are such that even a most casual observer of India can’t miss. Concerned with popular culture, literature, group identity, religious diversity and the growing consumerist mind-set these essays explore one key question — how can Sri Aurobindo’s insights help us understand some of these outer sociological-cultural phenomena in a deeper way? But in a deeper sense, this aim is inspired by the author’s interest in making sense of the collective Indian socio-cultural experience using an Indian framework, not one that harks back to some golden age of the past, but one that is evolutionary, futuristic and yet firmly rooted in the eternal truths of Indian civilisation and culture. Such a framework is found in Sri Aurobindo’s sociological and cultural writings. His vision helps us see beyond and behind the surface phenomena and uncover some of the deeper truths being expressed through their outer forms.”
