Abstract

In his book The Argumentative Indian  (2006) the Noble Laureate Indian economist, a scholar extraordinary Prof Amartya Sen who is also one of the pioneers of ‘social choice ‘theory, according to his own choice, selectively discusses myriad issues, basically cultural, and in the course of his discussion Indian heterodoxy or openness and argumentative nature plays a kinkier role as a thread, thereby giving the book a uniformity beneath multiformity. Following the same trajectory of Prof. Sen in this paper I would also selectively comment on Sen’s presentation of Indo-China cultural history, thereby showcasing the cultural relationship as voices of Indian argumentativeness and heterodoxy or for that matter openness.
