Agnihotri’s story is a behind-the-scenes look at the making of “Buddha in a Traffic Jam”, the violent resistance to its screening, and an expose of the world’s largest extreme-left terror movement and its penetration into urban India.
Thank You India is an ode to India and its wisdom. Stumbling into India on an accidental layover in 1980, Maria Wirth got drawn into a seeker’s journey, searching for truth and encountering the many remarkable men and women, gurus and teachers, who would act as guides for her decades in India. From Sai Baba to Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, from Anandamayi Ma to Amma, she records her close personal encounters and experiences.
The journey will take us to secluded and unknown yogis in the Himalayas to the famous celebrity gurus, to colourful festivals and ascetic caves. But her real journey is the inner voyage to Yoga or union, a union with the Self. As we travel with and through her, we get to reflect on love and death, rebirth and liberation, the necessity and the limitations of the guru, and through it our own. Finding both inspiration and disillusionment, she returns again to her own Self and to the wisdom of India, a treasure for all of humanity.

What did Mountbatten actually think of Nehru and Patel. Why did Nehru do such a poor job of defending India’s interests in J & K? How was Nehru compromised?
Nehru’s Himalayan Blunders: The Accession of Jammu and Kashmir documents the major errors of Nehru, diplomatic and military, that led to India losing a portion of Jammu and Kashmir to Pakistan’s military occupation and to continued conflict between the two states even after the legal accession of Jammu and Kashmir. Justice S N Aggarwal’s painstaking research uncovers gems from the archives including Lord Mountbatten’s personal diaries and documents the series of events around Jammu and Kashmir’s accession, including the conflict between Jawaharlal Nehru and Sardar Patel.
Sardar Patel managed the accession of the remaining 500 states without lingering dispute. Read about Nehru’s blunders in Jammu and Kashmir that led to a reference to the UN, and why Sardar Patel could not intervene to prevent the mis-handling. An enduring view into what actually happened, and Nehru’s culpability, will leave you stunned.

The 1965 Indo-Pak war was a landmark conflict. Pakistan gambled desperately to grab J&K by force and failed. It launched Op Gibralter to start a revolt in Jammu & Kashmir which backfired. Pak then launched an all out attack in the Chhamb sector to cut off state of J&K. India hit back hard with major counter-offensives in the Lahore & Sialkot sectors which forced Pak to recoil. The war saw some of the biggest tank to tank engagements after the Second World War, and also fierce air combat. The much famed assaulting Pakistani armoured division was trapped and destroyed. Pakistan lost the war. The victory was paved by the heroism and gallantry of India’s warriors – sung and unsung!
There is a new awakening in India that is challenging the ongoing Westernization of the discourse about India.
There can be no single universalism, even if it assimilates or, in the author's words, “digests”, elements from other civilizations' – Kapila Vatsyayan In Being Different: An Indian Challenge to Western Universalism, thinker and philosopher Rajiv Malhotra addresses the challenge of a direct and honest engagement on differences, by reversing the gaze, repositioning India from being the observed to the observer and looking at the West from the dharmic point of view. In doing so, he challenges many hitherto unexamined beliefs that both sides hold about themselves and each other. He highlights that while unique historical revelations are the basis for Western religions, dharma emphasizes self-realization in the body here and now.
