Swadeshi Indology Conference 1 was held in Chennai in July 2016. Swadeshi Indology Conference 2 was held in Delhi in February 2017. Both events were very successful. As per Swadeshi Indology website,”The Swadeshi Indology Conference series has been envisioned to counter the 250-year-old narrative of Western Indology, the genre of Orientalism that focuses on India. As is well known, Western Indology helped formulate and legitimise the British colonial policies and played a very crucial role in the successful colonisation and oppression of the Indian peoples; it very nearly destroyed the Sanātana Saṁskrti.”
