Savitri and The Life Divine as guiding lights

Economists and their forecasts based on mathematical modeling suffered a severe drubbing in the wake of the recent financial meltdown. The SR/OOO camp attempted an upsetting paradigm shift in the arena of Western philosophy. The Heehs imbroglio exposed many fake faces and lowered the respect for the Westerners. Gadamer or Godard perhaps will never be short of fans, but the Asian upsurge is likely to push them outside focus.

Universities in India have admirably furthered the cause of Western culture and literature even at the risk of neglecting the indigenous diversity. What emerges from the melting pot of globalization in India is not at all clear at the end of the first decade of the 21st Century. For Savitri Erans, however, Savitri and The Life Divine will be the guiding lights for a long time to come where the East and the West cohere. [TNM]
