84 – Jayant Bhandari: Midnight’s Children

Gabriel Custodiet speaks for a third time with the cultural philosopher Jayant Bhandari. They continue previous threads about what reason and honor are and how they manifested exclusively in the West. They talk about Indian Independence in 1947, the threat of BRICS to the West, how Hinduism is a modern Western construct, whether the Hippocratic Oath exists in India, why Indians stockpile gold, and what book most influenced Bhandari. Listen and learn.
