The mythical image of India had cast her spell on the Western man since the beginning of history. The present book is a brief account of the response of German intellectuals to India in its difficult phases-from its initial romantic attitude to its more mature and critical appreciation of the languages and literatures, philosophy and religion of India. The discovery of ancient wisdom by German indologists added a new dimension to disciplines of Linguistics, Religion and Mythology. The present writer also points out the subtle and significant impact of the labours of German poets and philosophers, grammarians and sociologists in understanding Indian culture on Indian intelligentsia. Printed Pages: 76.
