  • Authentic Existence

    ₹ 425.00

    GEORGE PANTHANMACKEL, MSFS

    ACPI, an ‘Association of Christian Philosophers of India,’ was conceived in 1975 and was born as an informal group in 1976.  It had a humble origin, stable growth and reasonable achievements.  The academic identity of the ACPI is born and nurtured by its specific way of ‘Indian Christian philosphizing.’ Standing rooted in the twofold Indian and Christian heritage, ACPI has been philosophizing with a difference, which has already given birth to thirteen books in its Annual Series, and three in its Special Series, including the two-volume ACPI Encyclopedia of Philosophy.

  • CASTE VICTIMIZATION

    ₹ 350.00

    A Study on The Dalits (Arunthathiyars) of Dalits

    The book exclusively focuses on Arunthathiyars and sheds light on the evils of victimization encountered by them in the hands of dominant castes, State and other Dalit communities. The study is commendable particularly because it has provided us with an action plan to work against caste victimization and discrimination of the Arunthathiyars. No doubt this path-breaking research will further the cause of the liberation of the Arunthathiyar community in Tamil Nadu and elsewhere in the country.
