Namaskāra to all! Below is the itinerary of Rajiv Malhotra through India on his new book, "Battle for Sanskrit,” which is a MUST-READ for everyone about the learning environment in today’s academic Indology departments. You must be aware, or become aware of the danger of becoming a footnote in history (like the Native Americans, dispossessed of their way of life, their language, their culture, and their beliefs, especially the lands they lived on). The book is to be released for sale next month.
These events are open to the public, January 15 – Feb 2, 2016.
The themes are related to my new book, The Battle For Sanskrit. All my books will be on sale at the venues.
Formats vary. Some are academic style panel discussions with top scholars in the field. Others are my solo lecture followed by extensive Q&A, or long workshops. Some are formal book launches by a prominent chief guest.
