    schema:description ""Multifaceted thinker and prolific author, Ashis Nandy is considered to be one of India's leading intellectuals. For someone trained as a clinical psychologist and later as a sociologist, he continues to capture the imagination of the reading public and those interested in ideas, for his fertile mind, myriad and unpredictable ways of thinking and the essential humanism which all his writings signify. This book is a series of comprehensive interviews conducted by Ramin Jahanbegloo at Teheran and organized over six sessions. The interviewer questions Nandy within the context of his own 'Indian-ness' as also his affinity (and criticisms) for things Indian: whether it be thought, religion or pluralistic tendencies. The essence of Ashis Nandy and his perspectives on a wide range of things include political philosophy, democracy, India and Pakistan, globalization, Indian culture and tradition, and Gandhi, are all revealed. Throughout the interview, Nandy brings to bear his formidable intellect on these questions, which is always challenging and engaging."--Jacket."@en ;
