Arts of India sought inspiration in Philosophy of Non-violence and inclusiveness. Europe on the other suckled on the grandeur of regimented war-mongering Roman Empire. The art of Cholas, Chalukyas, Vijaynagar,Buddhists, Hindus and Jains in India is far superior to that of 'Renaissance' Europe. Humanism is predominant in arts of India while European art was based on a slave owning and trading,Colonial and Racist society. The kings, nobility and the Church patronized idealized sham 'Humanity'in European art but actively and ruthlessly destroyed all non-European arts, cultures and people.
The book is written not by European Colonist glasses but from the fair study of most humane of Humanism of India's religions, cultures and philosophy.
