Infinity Foundation is organising Swadeshi Indology Conference (Part 3) in IIT Madras, Chennai, Tamil Nadu from 22 Dec – 24 Dec 2017. For those who will not be able to attend the conference and for the wider audience, all the conference sessions will be video-graphed and uploaded to YouTube.
Infinity Foundation’s founder Rajiv Malhotra is an internationally known researcher, writer, speaker and public intellectual on current affairs as they relate to civilizations, cross-cultural encounters, religion and science. After a very successful career in the computer and telecom industries, he took early retirement in 1994 to found The Infinity Foundation, which focuses on Indic studies.
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.”
