00. BHARATHIYA WISDOM
HOME MENU PREVIOUS NEXT
Still working with contents; not final yet.

This topic may be quite 'strange' to people with non-Bharath background and mind-set and also to most 'educated' and 'Westernised Indians'.

TRADITIONAL WISDOM:
Every Society has its 'tradition & culture' comprising of all the beliefs, practices, values, morals, do's and don'ts, skills, etc. Every member of the Society diligently and meticulously believes and follows these. This 'Traditional Wisdom' takes care of every aspect of their (both the individual and the community), lives. This Traditional Wisdom of any society is preserved as this is passed down the generations.

THE SOURCE OF THIS WISDOM:
From where did these come? What is their source? I don't think any one has a simple and clear-cut answer![1] The driver of a vehicle need not and so, does not, bother about the technology of the vehicle; enough if he knows a few essentials of driving.

So to start with: 'Don't look for the source of the river or the Rishi!.

BHARATHIYA WISDOM:
Bharath(iya) Wisdom, the Wisdom of Bharath is a living culture, dating back to undatable times. Bharathiya Wisdom is Highly Logical and Scientific [2]. It is fully relevent even today.

Let us not confuse this with the Indian Wisdom which is hardly a couple of centuries old, driven by the Colonizers. Thanks to Sir Thomas Babbington Macaulay,

[You may google-search for "Minute (to the British Parliament) by the Hon'ble T. B. Macaulay, dated the 2nd February 1835."]

the Indian Wisdom is almost a carbon-copy of the Modern, Scientific or Western wisdom which is mostly 'Reverse Engineering' that is severely constrained by so many factors like the observer's capabilities, the equipment, etc.!!! Obviously, and also by its record so far, this 'rational, scientific, Western' wisdom is never final, nor complete.

"I have no knowledge of either Sanscrit or Arabic. But I have done what I could to form a correct estimate of their value. I have read translations of the most celebrated Arabic and Sanscrit works. I have conversed, both here and at home, with men distinguished by their proficiency in the Eastern tongues. I am quite ready to take the oriental learning at the valuation of the orientalists themselves. I have never found one among them who could deny that a single shelf of a good European library was worth the whole native literature of India and Arabia. The intrinsic superiority of the Western literature is indeed fully admitted by those members of the committee who support the oriental plan of education."

"We must at present do our best to form a class who may be interpreters between us and the millions whom we govern, --a class of persons Indian in blood and colour, but English in tastes, in opinions, in morals and in intellect."

"To that class we may leave it to refine the vernacular dialects of the country, to enrich those dialects with terms of science borrowed from the Western nomenclature, and to render them by degrees fit vehicles for conveying knowledge to the great mass of the population."
