The main drift of Indian thinking ever since yore has been towards the search of an integrated, harmonious and authentic existence of the individual, both in his personal as well as social life. This preoccupation has lasted to this date.

The Indian thinkers, ancients and modern alike, have sought to evolve man’s personal rights and liberties and his ethico-social obligations not from any extraneous raison d’etat but from his spiritual nature that has universality and infinity innate in it.

In the modern Indian thinking a conscious endeavour has been made to save the individual from isolation, abstraction and narrowness that at times overshadows him in the Western Liberal tradition when viewed only as an empirical subject or agent of materialist ends and objects.
