Philosophy of education

Dr Rammanohar Lohia is known as a freedom fighter, a founder of the socialist movement in Asia, and a fearless politician always ready to fight for fundamental human rights. However, he was also a deep scholar, philosopher, a champion of the Indian tradition, and a visionary humanist with strong creative and imaginative powers. About the Author S.R. Nene, in this definitive biography, brings to focus Dr Lohia's prescience for human possibilities - human coexistence, mankind's common genealogy, and its need to tame itself to survive its own creations such as climate change, armaments, religious fanaticism and authoritarianism. A tribute to one of India's great sons in his birth centenary year, 2010, this book delves into the mind of a man who spent a lifetime fighting against injustice and who had the vision of a prophet. S.R. Nene is a biologist by profession. He has worked for a British MNC for thirty-one years in various senior positions. He is the former vice-president of the Pesticides Association of India, and has participated in several national and international seminars and conferences on the bio-efficacy and environmental effects of bio-chemicals used in public health and agriculture. This is his second literary work.
