Ashis Nandy

Oxford University Press

Beginning with a discussion of Ashis Nandy's views about postmodernism in India, this section also presents his views about the colonized response to colonization; the issues of multiculturalism and deculturalization; and Nandy's support for Mahatma Gandhi in the Gandhi–Tagore debate—namely, Gandhi's claim, challenged by Rabindranath Tagore, that the Bihar earthquake in 1936 was due to the sin of untouchability. He also talks about globalization and our future; the price of progress; and human culture and national identities.

Keywords:   Ashis Nandy, postmodernism, colonization, multiculturalism, deculturalization, Rabindranath Tagore, Mahatma Gandhi, globalization, human culture, national identity
