About the Talk
The modern European idea of equality made its entry in India in the late nineteenth century, leading to a paradigm shift in the pre-existing imagination of spiritual equality before god. This paradigm shift was followed by a period of free translations when received ideas about socialism, Marxism or the Russian Revolution were selectively and imaginatively grafted onto Indian reality. M N Roy, and in a limited way Jawaharlal Nehru brought this phase to an end and set up an official doctrine. This was followed by long phase in which this ideological orthodoxy was played out in the real world of politics with modest returns. This phase was also marked by various creative and heterodox encounters represented, for example, by Rammanohar Lohia. The collapse of the Soviet Union was something of a dead end for this journey; this challenge also created an opportunity for re-imagining the received idea of equality and its reintegration with alternative traditions of thinking about equality. Such an attempt, reflected in Kishen Pattnayak’s writings, set the stage for contemporary recasting of the idea of equality.
