Dr. J. S. Patil, Vice-Chancellor, Karnataka State Law University (KSLU) was the chief guest in the National Weekly Discussions through Amrita University's A-VIEW envisaged by MHRD under NME-ICT mission on June 6, 2012.

The topic of the session was Indian Renaissance.

Dr. Patil seating from his office at Karnataka said "By utilizing Amrita University's e-learning platform A-VIEW and NME-ICT connectivity, India can be developed as intellectual super power."

India: A powerful nation

While speaking about Indian Renaissance, he said India has been a great civilization for almost 5000 years. "Our country was known for its unity in diversity. However, we lost our legacy due to foreign invasion," he pointed out.

He added that Indians in modern India are still under the influence of colonial distortions.

Points to ponder

  • Understand western viewpoint about India
  • Shun the distortions in western interpretations
  • Relearn the learnt and forgotten aspects of Indian traditions
