In chapters 1 and 2, I have pointed out: first that the Indian and the Western ethnocognitive and cultural styles are very divergent, the former being what has been aptly characterised as non-modern (Nandy 1983; Banuri and Marglin 1993), and second, that the mandala is an all-pervasive and potent cultural design for living in the pan-Indic civilisation. In this chapter, I expatiate on my first, non-modern theme, namely Indic individuality, which I variously call mandalic and ‘holonic’ as I elucidate its various aspects.
