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 that there is an intimate connection—an almost exact correspondence—between James Mill’s colonial-racist discourse (Mill was the head of the British East India Company) and the current school textbook discourse. This racist discourse, camouflaged under the cover of political correctness, 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.

1.Hey dear lady see how nicely the king of mountain,
Gave his daughter in marriage
Hey dear lady he thought shiva who destroys all ,
Was a great dear and appreciated him.

2,The home that he has is the cremation ground,
And he is seen wearing the hide of an elephant , my dear lady,
He does not have any cash in his hand,
For see the begging bowl in his hand, my dear lady.

3.He rides on a bull, his neck is blue , he does not have emotions , please see my dear lady,
See my lady , he is the one who belongs to Sri Purandara vittala the dear of Goddess Lakshmi.
