 Indiaclub.com Description

This book endeavors; not only to show that India was great in all respects, spiritually, socially, culturally and even politically, but also that this greatness is still there today, waiting for India to awaken to Her true destiny.

For most historians, whether Indians or foreigners, India's greatness - if there is a greatness at all - lies in its past, in the golden period of pre-Muslim conquests. But even that greatness, they often limit to a cultural or else a spiritual grandeur. There also have been throughout the centuries, conscious attempts, at propagating false theories on India's history, such as the famed Aryan invasion and its imposition on the good Dravidians of the hateful brahmanic caste system. Or the inference of a benevolent Muslim rule in India, which negates the holocaust, which the Arabs wreaked on the peninsula from the 7th century onwards. And most unfortunately, many of these theories have resulted in a wave of denigration of the greatness, which is Hinduism and a conscious attempt at stamping it out from Indian life today.

India today is facing grave dangers both from within and without. And it only after She has recovered Her true soul, recouped Her Dharma, that She will become united again, and become the Greater India that She was centuries ago, and fulfill her Destiny as the spiritual leader of the world.


 


 About the Author

FRANCOIS GAUTIER, born in Paris in 1950, is a French journalist and photographer. He is the political correspondent in India and South Asia for ' Le Figaro ', the newspaper, which has the largest circulation in France and 'Le Nouveau Quotidian', one of Switzerland's foremost dailies. He is married to an Indian and has lived in India for the past 25 Years, which he says has helped him to see through the usual clichés and prejudices on India, to which he subscribed for a long time as most foreign journalists, writers and historians do. Francois, who writes the 'Ferengi's column' in the Indian Express, shuttles between Delhi and the international city of Auroville near Pondicherry, where he resides most of the time.
