Colonial Discourse and the Suffering of Indian American Children Book Cover.webp

In this book, we analyze the psycho-social consequences faced by Indian American children after exposure to the school textbook discourse on Hinduism and ancient India. We demonstrate expose the correspondence between textbooks and the colonial-racist discourse. This racist discourse produces the same psychological impacts on Indian American children that racism typically causes: shame, inferiority, embarrassment, identity confusion, assimilation, and a phenomenon akin to racelessness, where children dissociate from the traditions and culture of their ancestors.

This book is the result of four years of rigorous research and academic peer-review, reflecting our ongoing commitment at Hindupedia to challenge the representation of Hindu Dharma within academia.

By Swami Harshananda

Ariṣṭanemi literally means ‘the felly of whose wheel is unhurt’.

  • Ariṣṭanemi was one of the five sons of Vinatā and Kaśyapa, and a brother of the famous Garuḍa. Sometimes, the sage Kaśyapa himself has been known by this name.
  • The Pāṇḍava prince Sahadeva had assumed this name when he lived in Virāṭanagara, in disguise.
  • It is also the name of the twenty- second Tīrthaṅkara of the Jains.
