A Hindu Education: Early Years of the Banaras Hindu University
A Hindu Education: Early Years of the Banaras Hindu University
Description
From the Jacket :

What makes an individual or institution Hindu? What is a Hindu education? Can religious identity co-exist with modern western institutions? What is the role of religion and higher education in nationalism? A Hindu Education provides a comprehensive account of the nature of education at Banaras Hindu University (BHU), one of the most influential Indian institutions during the late colonial period.

BHU played major role in the creation of a nationalist sentiment during India's independence movement. Situating the institution in the larger context of a movement to foster Hindu Identity, the author investigates the designs of British Officials and Indian founders of the university for uniting students from diverse backgrounds under a common banner of Hinduism. She discusses the administration, academics, publications, student life, and political atmosphere in the early years of BHU. She also shows how the university responded to various challenges faced by the institution in the context of colonialism, Hindu-Muslim relations, and the independence movement.

The book explores the complex inter-relationships between religion, education, identity formation, and resistance patterns. It re-examines the general view of most modern scholarship on religious nationalism grounded in the assumption that nationalism thrives only in modern, secular cultures. It also offers a different perspective on university education in colonial India.

This book will be useful for students and scholars of modern Indian history, sociology, educationalists, and those interested in religious nationalism and Hindu identity in colonial India.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
