schema:description"In India Revisited, Ramin Jahanbegloo converses with twentyseven leading India personalities-social scientists, journalists, activists, artists, and sports persons-to gain an understanding of contemporary Indian society. 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 Jahanbeglioo'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. India Revisited gives a one-of-a-kind view of contemporary India, seen through the eyes of those who have engaged ith the country, her people, and culture through their work and lives."@en
