Christian Lee Novetzke is a College of Arts and Sciences Term Professor in the South Asia Program, the Comparative Religion Program, and the International Studies Program at the University of Washington’s Jackson School of International Studies
Christoph Emmrich (PhD University of Heidelberg, 2004) is a associate professor at University of Toronto, Department for study of Religion.
Sunila S.Kale is Associate professor, at University of Washington’s Jackson School of International Studies.
Washington choose Toronto to present a discussion on their forthcoming book as above. We at Dwarapalakas exchanged a series of letters with all three above and this is our summary,
” There is no doubt that there is a fascination about Hindu studies given the rich legacy of texts. There also seems to be a strong desire to provide a new interpretation of ancient Hindu texts. This meet in our opinion sounded like a testing session. To evaluate public response to their initiative.”
When we raised a few queries, they sounded not equipped to answer our queries. Further the book release was cancelled.
We at Dwarapalakas felt amused that the 56 Inch chest of the Prime Minister of India, Shri Modi was discussed at the meet. Quite academic.
In our email with Prof Christian Lee Novetzke he promised us to meet Dwarapalaka team on his next visit, over “Chai and chercha” .
