Governor H.R. Bharadwaj released 'Bahuda and The Post 9/11 World and India's Culture: The State, Arts and Beyond, a set of two books authored by Sikkim Governor Balmiki Prasad Singh.
The book published by the Oxford University Press (OUP), were released at an event jointly organized by OUP and National Institute of Advanced Studies at the Raj Bhavan.
The book consists of two sets: Bahudha and Post 9/11 World and India's Culture. The first propounds the concept of Bahudha-an eternal reality or continuum-a dialogue of harmony and peaceful living. The second explores the fascinating aspects of India's diversified cultural base and examines the relationship between the state, market, and arts.
Commenting on the books, the former Chief Justice of India M.N. Venkatachaliah said they were a reflection of the way humanity has conducted itself.
"The 20th Century has been the bloodiest in the history of mankind with over 220 million people killed in wars, civil strife and others. This book talks about that we have created and the way out of it", he added.
M.V. Nadkarni, Honorary visiting professor of the Institute for Social and Economic Change, was also present.
