Sanskrit non-Translatables takes fifty-four indisputably foundational concepts, arranges them in a fourfold typology that moves from terra firma to terra cognita to the cosmos, and contests the irrationality, the untenability and the ‘design’ of their widely employed English equivalents. With its well-thought out prefatory essays, this is a book that every English-educated Indian must read to further ‘decolonise’ his mind and stand up to the hegemony of Western thought.

This is a memorable book (Being Different) asking us to put aside modernity's tired categories and lazy comparisonism and at last to take seriously the Indian perspective on history and our world today. Being Different is here a necessary virtue, essential to understanding our neighbors and ourselves. Much reflection and many a good argument should follow upon Malhotra's unique achievement.

This highly original book (Being Different) leads its reader on an epic journey of self-discovery especially for those of us in the West. A fitting and major response to Samuel Huntington's position on "Who are we" as the West; one that can perhaps best be provided by someone reversing the gaze on the West through a non-Western lens. This deserves to be one of the defining books of the age.

This book Breaking India is the only well researched work on the global nexus of anti-India players and their Indian agents, covering the past two centuries. Probably the best book I have read recently.

This is a thoughtful, reasoned, yet passionate plea (Invading the Sacred) that the perspectives and sensitivities of Hindus be considered in the presentation of Hinduism in scholarship, textbooks and the media. What is remarkable is that many western academics are so resistant to it.
