Dear Reader,

We are pleased to invite you for a Symposium on the launch of Mr.Rajiv Malhotra’s new book ‘BEING DIFFERENT’ (pub.HarperCollins) which was released in Nov.2011. 

Mr.Malhotra is an Indian-American researcher, scholar on current affairs relating to civilizations, cross-cultural encounters, religion and science.  A scientist by training and now full-time founder-director of the Infinity Foundation in Princeton, New Jersey, U.S.A. He was previously a senior corporate executive, strategic consultant and finally an entrepreneur in information technology and media.  Currently he also serves as Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Centre for Indic Studies at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, and as adviser to various organizations.

Mr. Malhotra is the main author of the book “BREAKING INDIA:WESTERN INTERVENTIONS IN DRAVIDIAN AND DALIT FAULTLINES” published by Amaryllis in 2011.  His forthcoming book BEING DIFFERENT is an Indian Challenge to Western Universalism.  It reverses the gaze to look at the West, repositioning dharmic civilization from being the observed to being the observer.  In the words of Prof.R.Vaidyanathan of IIM, Bangalore “Being Different provides intriguing answers to some of the questions that perplex both Indians and other India watchers, such as, how are Indian businesses able to thrive despite our country’s weak infrastructure?”. The book attempts to signify the Indic culture from the point of view of Indian intellectual tradition and its uniqueness in integrating diverse streams of humanity.     

For presentation of his book ‘Being Different’, Mr.Rajiv Malhotra apart from other Indian cities also plans to visit Mumbai on 19th November, 2011. The event includes presentation by Mr.Rajiv Malhotra followed by a panel discussion and Q&A session. The other panelists are Dr.Meenal Katrnikar of Philosophy Dept., University of Mumbai, Mrs.Vimla Patil, veteran journalist and eminent scholar, Dr.Shrinivas Tilak
