  • Description
    India is more than a nation state. It is also a unique civilization with philosophies and cosmologies that are markedly distinct from the dominant culture of our times the West. Indias spiritual traditions spring from dharma which has no exact equivalent in Western frameworks. Unfortunately, in the rush to celebrate the growing popularity of India on the world stage, its civilizational matrix is being co-opted into Western universalism, thereby diluting its distinctiveness and potential.

    In Being Different: An Indian Challenge to Western Universalism, thinker and philosopher Rajiv Malhotra addresses the challenge of a direct and honest engagement on differences, by reversing the gaze, repositioning India from being the observed to the observer and looking at the West from the dharmic point of view. In doing so, he challenges many hitherto unexamined beliefs that both sides hold about themselves and each other. He highlights that while unique historical revelations are the basis for Western religions, dharma emphasizes self-realization in the body here and now. He also points out the integral unity that underpins dharmas metaphysics and contrasts this with Western thought and history as a synthetic unity.

    Erudite and engaging, Being Different critiques fashionable reductive translations and analyses the Wests anxiety over difference and fixation for order which contrast the creative role of chaos in dharma. It concludes with a rebuttal of Western claims of universalism, while recommending a multi-cultural worldview.

    Appalling Translation

    I had watched Rajiv Malhotra's speeches on youtube and found him to be very logical person so I decided to give his books a try. I ordered Breaking India and this one. VIbhinnata was cheaper than Being Different and Hindi being my mother tongue I thought this was a good idea. Flipkart delivered it pretty quickly so that was good.
    I have read almost half of the book. The content is good. I have never studied world religions in such comparative fashion. One gets a different perspective of thing...

    Daring to be different !

    Was delivered in 5 days to Indore(MP) for Rs. 210 (paperback). This is the Hindi translation of Being Different by the author. The translation is done nicely and is a reasonably lucid read. As far as the content of the book is concerned, Rajiv's work has been hailed as well as trashed depending on the reviewer's ideological disposition. Rajiv's youtube lectures are very interesting and his articulation forceful and penetrating.This book tries to examine the causes of differences between diffe...

    Very Very Important Book

    Thanks flipkart.com (very own swadeshi company) for delivering this book in just 24 hours of placing the order and accepting payment of COD using the new Credit Card machines. This book is awesome. If a Bharatiya/Indian cares about his culture and heritage he should definitely read it and also gift it to the individuals who are connected with him and do not know about the truth. It's also very very important for scholars in different universities of Bharat/India and abroad which is dominated ...

    Vibhinnata

    This book presents original ideas researched by the author to try to turn colonized minds of Indians to be able to think independently without the influence of western pressure that many Indians are under influence of without even knowing about it. The book examines the west through 'Purva Paksha' using Indian civilization as a bench mark, and then shows with evidence and strong arguments about many un-examined fallacies of so called western universalism. The book uncovers many western memes,...
