Congratulations Joe Velam!

Recently, Fr. Joseph Velamkunnel’s two books on Manjhis were released.

Book 1: Musahar Musings- This book contains experiences of achievements of the Musahars, told in the form of stories.

Book 2: March of the Manjhis and the Discovery of their Original Face - This book portrays the grim realities of their dehumanization at various levels of life. The contours of their Original Face got distorted through socio-cultural exploitations. Various agencies are engaged in a process of reconstruction of the Original face. Mathan, a social action centre of the Patna Jesuits, is one such organization. A detailed study of the activities of Manthan for empowerment of the Manjhis/Musahars is given in the book. The book concludes with some exploration into the divine dimension of such human activities.

Congratulations Tom!

Tom Chillikulam “Seeking Wholeness in a Globalized World: Interpreting the Doctrine of Purushartha for Today” is the first book of Thomas Chillikulam S.J. The book is a work of research on the doctrine of Purushartha. In Indian philosophy Purushartha or the goal of human life has been interpreted as Dharma (moral values), Artha (wealth), Kama (sexual pleasure) and Moksha (salvation). Moving away from the traditional ethical interpretation of purushartha, the book treats the doctrine from an ontological perspective with a view to derive a more holistic understanding of the fourfold aims of life.
