Harry Aveling and India: A Conversation

Vanashree .


During my tenure at Monash University, Australia, as the Indian Council of Cultural Relations (ICCR) chair in Indian Studies, I had the opportunity to get to know the faculty in Monash University and it was indeed gratifying to note that in the western countries there is not just fascination with India but also a genuine quest to know India.  Professor Aveling has been looking almost zealously in esoteric books, far corners, and inner reaches for an explanation of himself and in this journey his engagement with translation has had a significant role. It is his profound interest in Indian classical texts and the translation of Bhakti poetry that lifted the veil. I am giving here an account of my conversation with Professor Aveling on 12 May 2017.
