"Hinglaj Devi: Identity, Change and Solidification at a Hindu Temple in Pakistan", by Jurgen @JSchaflechner amzn.to/2vcwc9u
"11 Beloved Books With Shockingly Bad Reviews"
- "Dull, dull, dull in a pretentious, florid and archly fatuous fashion [...] repulsive."
- "Mr. [...] never writes naturally. His sentiment is forced, his wit is forced, and his enthusiasm is forced."
"Indian Culture and India's Future", by Michel Danino
"Can Indian civilization be compared to a thousand-branched tree? What have been its outstanding achievements and its impact on the world? These are some of the questions this book asks."
Sri Aurobindo on 'educated Indians' - "They will not allow things or ideas contrary to the European notions to be anything but superstitious, barbarous, harmful & benighted, they will not suffer what is praised and practised in Europe to be anything but rational and enlightened."
"The educated Indian,particularly the Hindu,suffers from such a deep loss of self-respect that he's unwilling to be recognized as such.He feels,in fact,deeply threatened by any surfacing or manifestation of the identity that he has worked so hard to, & has been trained to reject"
"..It is these people wearing various garbs - liberal,left,secular,modern - who oppose,more often than not from sheer ignorance, any attempt to introduce Indian traditions of thought in the mainstream education system - a classic case of self-hate taking the form of mother-hate."
The two tweets above are of Prof Kapil Kapoor, quoted in "Indian Culture and India's Future", by Michel Danino.
