Overview

Universities divide, separate and fragment. Life, however, incorporates everything - poetry and politics, religiosity and economics, reason and intuition. Here is a book that is in tune with the flow of life - not the way universities conduct discrete departments and branches of knowledge. It moves with sociology, political philosophy, literature and spirituality, and undertakes a journey that takes you beyond the narrow boundaries of an academic discipline. Neither fatalistic pessimism, nor shallow optimism; instead, it whispers into the ears of the reader: 'Understand the reality of constraints; yet, dare to celebrate your eternal longing' No matter whether you are Gandhian or a Marxist, an Ambedkarite or a fan of Tagore, a young student or an old professor - you can't afford to miss the book: its argumentation, its intuitive flash, its refreshingly different mode of communicating the tales of life.
