    I&#39;m writing an essay countering Thomas Macaulay&#39;s ideas about how India should be developed, and I need some indian intellectuals to use as examples. If anyone could point me in the right direction, for as the ignorant american i am, i really havn&#39;t a clue about who to look for. Thanks.

    The term "intellectuals" confuses me, why post here then?

    Good luck anyway

    I feel your sig may reduce your potential sources of information.

    However that is really a matter for you.

    Good luck with the essay btw.

    Salman Rushdie springs immediately to mind. I do rate him as a great Indian author. Though, some would argue this, I specify his prose and not his politics.

    thanks, i just need some examples. As for why I am posting it, I knew i would get a bunch of replies quickly, as I see now. I realize my sig is probably a turn off for many, but atleast I hope there are some that can ignore it.. im not talking about ukman and jpaul.. just wanted some info.

    i hate to be picky.. but he was born at the end of british rule.. i was looking more for someone who lived in the 19th or early 20th century, or earlier, perhaps even thousands of years ago.

    Perhaps, UKman, but I refer really to Midnight&#39;s Children which is a work worthy of any 20th century novelist and quite on topic. It deals with, as I&#39;m sure you&#39;re aware, Indian independence and heritage and worth reading for the pure richness of culture spawned during and after the Raj.

    Except maybe for Clocker and JP, I am nearest your age requirements but I have never authorised anything of note. Sorry.

    I did work once for an engineering firm. Though I did not understand why jewellry was not the end product.
