This biography acquaints us with the author’s Indian Aryan genesis and important events in his life in the context of India’s joint family system, both the struggles and the triumphs as they came under foreign rule. The children were raised in traditional Hindu values at home. Outside, they mimicked the British-European culture and thought patterns. Overtime the impact of modern Western life superseded the essentially native quintessence of Hinduism. Outside forces caused havoc as a sense of fear and insecurity developed with the impending collapse of the Zamindari system, symbiotically related to British colonialism. Dispossession and disintegration between the two groups of people, one domestic and the other external ensued. Hence, it became inevitable for some to disengage from their Hindu joint family morals. Nonetheless, the conclusion is not that a few members of the joint family were evil in essence. Rather, they just annulled their ancestor’s religious and moral principles. This sociological and anthro-political work is a comparative cross-cultural narrative that highlights the mind regarding Indian values and the introduction of foreign teachings. In the end, the modern Indian man has become more acquisitive and inclined toward narcissism. There are copious footnotes, ample bibliography and an index. Also it contains ten colored images.
