This is a report on the 3-days conference, “Dispassionate Churning of Indology Conference” held in January 2019. The event was organized by Bharatiya Vidvat Parishad and the Tattvasamshodhana Samsat, with support from Indian Council for Philosophical Research (ICPR), New Delhi and Indic Academy, Hyderabad in Udupi. It was pure serendipity that the conference, with a title that was carefully coined by Prof Ashok Aklujkar, was held in a city just a few km away from the Arabian Sea connecting to the Indian Ocean. Reminiscing the sagar manthan in purana, not only the title but the location also, seemed to fit the theme nicely. Not withstanding the practical challenges of combining modern expectations with spiritual ambience, the number of person-hours of knowledge, wisdom, kindness, humanity that were collected at “RajanganaPrangana”, could make one feel the spandanam, the under-current, waves of positive energy flowing, as scholars debated, presented and discussed various aspects of Indic studies. Out of 305 persons attending the occasion, 180 papers were presented in 3 days. The recordings of the sessions are available on YouTube.
After 20 years of successful career in Information Technology(IT), Warija Adiga has switched over to aesthetically rewarding Sanskrit literature.She finds pleasure in decoding Sanskrit texts, to get the perspectives of the ancient sages and understand the world they lived in.
