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.

Animisha karu manu govinda keerthan
Animitha bandu kali kalmasha hara (Animisha)

Every minute sing about Govinda,
The relation without cause who destroys ills of Kali age.


Amrutha vakya adbutha roopa
Ananda shravana jyothi swaroopa (Animisha)

You have nectar like words and a wonderful form,
You are a joy to hear and are the form of a flame.


Pavamana sahitha anumanu rahitha
Paripoorna govinda ananda roopa
Parandama sadanu nischala nirmala
Sri Krishna dasa samadi nidanam (Animisha)

Without any hesitation accompanied by Hanuman,
You are complete form of Joy, Oh Govinda,
You are the great God who is stable and pure,
And you are the goal of the samadhi of Krishna dasa
