5.0 out of 5 stars Sanskrit Non-Translatables: Ground yourself to your Sanskriti through your language
By Brijesh on 4 December 2020
Rajiv Malhotra ji is way ahead in his understanding of civilization battle that we are fighting today. Playing the games of our enemies is not a good strategy and we will always end up reacting. To change the game, we have to first ground ourselves to our Sanskriti and that starts with Sanskritization of our languages be it English and uncompromisingly Hindi. For those of you who are pessimistic and think this can't be done, we'll, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj got rid of Persian, Arabic vocabulary in his kingdom within few decades. It's a long battle but a battle which can be won by a few hundred Rajiv Malhotras and his true 100,000 shishyas (शिष्य).

Rajiv Malhotra was trained initially as a Physicist, and then as a Computer Scientist specializing in AI in the 1970s. After a successful corporate career in the US, he became an entrepreneur and founded and ran several IT companies in 20 countries. Since the early 1990s, as the founder of his non-profit Infinity Foundation (Princeton, USA), he has been researching civilizations and their engagement with technology from a historical, social sciences and mind sciences perspective. He has authored several best-selling books. Infinity Foundation has also published a 14-volume series on the History of Indian Science & Technology. His latest book on AI is titled, “Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Power: 5 Battlegrounds”, in which India is the case study to analyze the impact of AI in a variety of domains.

He founded Infinity Foundation in Princeton (USA) for this purpose in 1994 and has been its founder-director since inception. Rajiv has conducted original research in a variety of fields and has influenced many thinkers worldwide. He has disrupted the mainstream thought process among academic and non-academic intellectuals alike by providing fresh provocative positions on Dharma and on India. Some of the focal points of his work are: Interpretation of Dharma for the current times; comparative religion; globalization and India’s contributions to the world. He has authored a large number of articles, published 1,000 video lectures and provided strategic guidance to numerous organizations.

-Being Different: An Indian Challenge to Western Universalism

-Breaking India: Western Interventions in Dravidian and Dalit Fault lines

-Indra’s Net: Defending Hinduism’s Philosophical Unity

-The Battle for Sanskrit: Is Sanskrit Political or Sacred, Oppressive or Liberating, Dead or Alive?

-Academic Hinduphobia: A Critique of Wendy Doniger’s Erotic School of Indology

-Sanskrit Non-Translatables: The Importance of Sanskritizing English

He also serves as Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Center for Indic Studies at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, and is a visiting professor at Jawaharlal Nehru University. He is on the Advisory Board of the Indian Institute of Advanced Studies, Shimla.

Infinity Foundation has given more than 400 grants for research, education and community work. This includes strategic grants to major US universities in support of pioneering programs, including the following: visiting professorships in Indic studies at Harvard University; Yoga and Hindi classes at Rutgers University; research and teaching of non-dualistic philosophies at University of Hawaii; research at Center for Buddhist studies at Columbia University; development of a program in religion and science at University of California; endowment for the Center for Advanced Study of India at University of Pennsylvania; lectures at the Center for Consciousness Studies at University of Arizona.
