Fb Discussions - Pollock, Indian scholarship, and the lost Indian liberal
I just read Ananya Vajpeyi's article and was surprised how she assumes that opposition to Pollock come only from the Modi camp. I am very far from any Modi camp !
But my main point is that do not Mr. Murthy and others realize that there is vast learning and erudition in India even today. Deeply read Sanskrit scholars are there who are also anchored in the ethos of this land and who are best equipped to translate Indian texts. Why search out a WhiteMan for this.
The EducatedIndian's disdain for all Indian wisdom and strengths is incurable.
(That Pollock has questioned the high handedness of our government on many occasions is good. I hope he also questions his own government. But that has no bearing on his appointment as the final word on sanskrit texts here.)
