Objects of Inquiry and Curiosity – Meera Baindur

In Indian thought, there is a strong resistance to aimless reasoning. Even before you begin asking questions, you ask yourself if there is a purpose to it. So there are limits imposed on thought even before you raise questions. You ask yourself if your teacher has the skill to answer, if there is a purpose, if this is the right time to do it. Therefore, there is a cultural reluctance to dig deep and ask questions about people’s deep experiences.
