Overview

With the fragmentation of knowledge and narrow specialization, we often miss the ecstasy of connectedness; the creeative eyes of a wanderer, or the eyes that see political philosophy in a Guru Dutt film, religiosity in a cup of coffee, or reflecxive sociology in a walk with a monk and a revoltionary. Indeed, here is a refreshing departure. Beyond footnotes and references - the book does not burden the reader with thee heavy baggage of 'knowledge'; instead, it communicates; it heals, and it inspires her/him to reflect on the aesthetics of living; mountains and rivers, celluloid imageries and poetry, and pedagogues and thinkers.
