This book attempts to decode the European representations of Indian body, emotions and mind in diverse representational discourses.
Efforts have been made to counter the mind-centered approaches to body and emotions reassessing the body's role in intellectual insight and insisting on the centrality of the body in the reproduction and transformation of cultural experiences. The volume is of interest to anyone concerned with Indian and Cross-cultural studies.
