Kapil Kapoor

Video- 1: In this talk, Dr. Kapil Kapoor shed light on psychology of Indian Intellectuals with especial focus on their obsessions. He is also worried about:  caste, sati, superstition, minorities, gender and the environment.


Video- 2: In this talk, Dr. Kapil Kapoor observes that Indian intellectuals are to be distinguished from Hinduism's traditional men of knowledge, or Rishi-s. The Rishi-s were devoted to the welfare of society, and they encouraged responsibility, self-reliance and cheerfulness. By contrast, our present "intellectuals" are only Buddhi-Jivi-s, those who "use their intellect to make a living".
