Guru Nanak in Western Scholarship
Guru Nanak in Western Scholarship
Description
About the Book:

This essay is based on three lectures given at the Indian Institute of Advanced Study on the treatment of Guru Nanak in the works of Western writers. The broad context for this essay is obviously the emergence of modern historical writing, particularly in relation to 'orientalism' and Indian studies. This context is not explicitly postulated in the essay, but it obtrudes here and there as the analysis develops. The basic point that appears to emerge from this analysis is the assumption of a close connection between cognition and praxis in the writings of Western scholars on the Sikhs. This was the common ground for the administrator, the missionary and the 'orientalist'. Academic or scientific study of Sikh history and Sikh tradition has arisen not as an alternative to but as a culmination of the earlier motivating interests.

It may be added that this common ground is by now shared by the Indian and the Western scholar alike. Differences of interpretation are still there, but they arise not so much from differences I national perspective as from differences of class, conceptualization, talent and training. His validity of 'new knowledge' is at stake because of its social implications, raising the all important issue of its intended and unintended consequences for different people and classes.

I am thankful to the Fellows who responded to the lectures with valuable comments and suggestions. Mr. S.K. Goel and Mr. T. K. Majumdar have been extremely helpful in preparing and finalizing the typescript, and Mr. N. K. Maini has seen it through the press. I am thankful to them

Testimonials

I love your site and although today is my first order, I have been seeing your site for the past several years. Thank you for providing such great art and books to people around the World who can't make it to India as often as we would like.
Rupesh
Heramba Ganapati arrived safely today and was shipped promptly. Another fantastic find from Exotic India with perfect customer service. Thank you. Jai Ganesha Deva
Marc, UK
I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.
