Product Details

To look at Bharat from Western, Marxist or Greeco-Roman lenses is fraught with the risk of distortions, And these distortions have been imposed upon us. An Anthology of Discourses on Bharat: Essays in the Honour of Pof Kuldip Chand Agnihotri is a collection of essays elaborating on the unique aspects of Bharatiya history, culture and polity including Bharatiya Dharma and its religions, ancient language Sanskrit and the present geopolitics based on things Bharatiya that have shaped Bharat—which is often to be denied by those who adopt a completely alien lens to know it.

The essays ranging from a wide array of topics like the concept of nationalism in Bharat; the influence of Dharma in the Bharatiya national movement; how the pursuit of ethical acquisition of wealth (artha) was welcome in ancient Bharat; Sanskritic traditions in Punjab; to Bharat’s current foreign policy; geopolitics and China; to Buddhism’s influence in Bharat; and much more. The essays are meant to decolonize the marketplace full of narratives inimical to Bharat.

These essays are dedicated to Prof Agnihotri, an academician, an author and nationalist thinker who has vociferously emphasised on the inclusion of national and indigenous thoughts to be made a part of institutional knowledge system. Apart from his contribution to academia, he has worked extensively on the issues of separatism in Kashmir, Punjab and North-East. He also strives to revive the ancient nomenclatures for Bharat; for instance, Jambudvipa, Sapt-Sindhu, Dashguru Parampara.
