Iniyan, Lemurian

by Ruud Lohman

Part prose, part essay, this book is about the discoveries of an inquisitive Western mind that knows itself surrounded by Indian reality. In the course of getting his own questions answered, Lohman has interesting things to say about what it means being an expatriate, and at that working for an ideal, Auroville and the building of Matrimandir. Describing the meeting between a western and eastern man in a real life situation, Lohman's scholarly prose reaches into both the Dravidian culture and the writer's quest of building yet another structure for the unity of mankind.
