This collection of interviews conducted by Ramin Jahanbegloo looks at India and Indias place in the world today through the experiences of twenty-seven leading Indian personalities. Jahanbegloo, as someone attempting to understand India, questions the contradictions of life in India: the long history of religious tolerance and growing religious fundamentalism, democracy and caste, equality and the low status of women, the affluent urban areas and the impoverished rural tracts. But looking beyond these contradictions, Jahanbegloo finds that after sixty years of Independence, the society, economy, and culture of India continue to develop in many ways. Including interviews with Romila Thapar, Partha Chatterjee, Ashis Nandy, Mushirul Hasan, M.J. Akbar, Vandana Shiva, the Dalai Lama, Mrinal Sen, Sonal Mansingh, and many others, this book is a one-of-a-kind view of contemporary India, for Indians as well as for non-Indians.

Ramin Jahanbegloo:

India Revisited: Conversations on Contemporary India - First edition

2007, ISBN: 0195689445

Hardcover, ID: 11061771670

[EAN: 9780195689440], Neubuch, [PU: Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India], INDIA HISTORY, In India Revisited, Ramin Jahanbegloo converses with twenty-seven leading Indian personalities––social scientists, journalists, activists, artists, and sports persons— to gain an understanding of contemporary Indian society. Jahanbegloo, an Iranian-Canadian philosopher and Gandhi scholar, raises interesting questions about the seeming contradictions of life in India: the long history of religious tolerance juxtaposed with growing religious fundamentalism, democracy being challenged by a persistent caste system, the Indian ethos of equality contested by the low status of women, affluent urban areas that contrast with the impoverished rural tracts, among other issues. The responses to these questions presented in the conversations in this book, present a unique and hopeful view of India sixty years after independence. Breaking new ground in the East-East dialogue, this book reveals that something more than economic wealth, political power, and technological ambition is needed to combat corruption, poverty, and inequality in India. This, for all of Jahanbegloo’s interviewees, is in line with the the social thinking of great thinkers like Mahatma Gandhi and Rabindranath Tagore, and the strength of the pluralistic Indian religious and cultural framework. 14 Cms x 22 Cms
