About the Book

 

Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, (1888-1975) is universally recognized as modern India's greatest philosopher. He was also a statesman of distinction, and even compared to Plato's ideal of the philosopher-king. As a creative thinker and a distinguished interpreter of Indian though he philosophized in the true Indian tradition. His notion of religion was spiritual, and not institutional or denominational.

Born in the pilgrim soil of Tirutani (now in Andhra Pradesh), he imbibed lasting impression of India's Vedic heritage during his formative years. Starting with his first teaching appointment in the Department of Philosophy at Madras Presidency College in 1909, he quickly established his reputation, and in 1921 became George V. Professor of Philosophy in Calcutta University and the Spalding Professor of Eastern Religion and Ethics at Oxford University in 1936. In 1952 he accepted the office of India's first Vice President, and in 1962 assumed the office of the President of India.

He was knighted in 1931 and conferred the Bharat Ratna Award in 1954.

 

From the Book:

 

Dr. Radhakrishnan sketches the lives of fourteen individuals who have influenced India's life and culture significantly, and altered the course of its history. Among these are social reformers like Swami Dayanand and Raja Ram Mohan Roy, political thinkers and activists like Lala Lajpat Rai, Sardar Patel, Tilak and Gokhale, and a giant among scientists, Jagdis Bose.

All of them had one thing in common, they broke the barriers of tradition and normalcy, and strove for noble ideals…They dreamt, and had the courage and tenacity to turn their dreams into reality.

'They truly are great who testify to the truth in them and refuse to compromise, whatever the cost…' - Dr. S. Radhakrishnan

I finally got my nearly $300 Meenakari earrings today. They were promised in 4-6 days but it took a week for them to be shipped. Then it was 4-6 days. When I saw them I had mixed feelings. They are cute but it took me a half hour to get them in my ears as the posts are really large in diameter. I had to use vaseline and force them through and then the screw on backs (a good thing) wouldn't line up. There seems to be something inside the screw on locks that act as a securing agent. Any way most of the things I've got from ExoticIndia were gifts and acceptable.
