Book Description Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2007. Hard Cover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. 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.
