A student from the HUA course – Critical Issues in Hindu Studies shares her thoughts about the course as we showcase some talks by the faculty for the course, Dr. Kundan Sigh.
" We are into the 6th week of our Critical Issues of Hindu Studies Course, offered by Hindu University of America, and so far, I have been amazed at learning just how much I had to unlearn in these few weeks. Just wrapping my head around the fact that even with all my ‘wokeness’, my thinking was so colonized, that I didn't even know that it was colonized. People often talk about paradigm shift. I, as a student, am watching that shift happening inside my head as we speak, watching my own ideas about things, unalign and realign. It’s mind-boggling and awe-inspiring, both at the same time. And we have not even experienced the tip of the iceberg yet. This looks like a long and arduous journey of self-discovery." - Jyoti Suravarjula. Student – MA-PhD - Hindu Studies
