Dr. Dhirendra Sharma spent years discussing Philosophy with Vedantic scholars in ashrams, Lamasaries and with Bishops and the Catholic monks in the Austro--Swiss Alps. He trekked through the Himalayan heights to Tapovan, Panch-Kedar, and to Mt. Kailash and Manasarovar, crossed over the Pacific and the Atlantic Oceans. In England, he worked in a night factory and was awarded Ph.D. at the University of London.
In the Evolving Global civilization, he found no Passage to Paradise. But in the Uncharted Life’s Journey, he observed synergic effects of Science, Technology, and Society (STS) reduced the life threatening pain and sufferings. The narratives of social activists Life’s Journey had led the author to ever-advancing Frontiers of Knowledge.
"I have known Dr. Dhirendra Sharma for almost 20 years. He was a courageous and effective participant in the American anti-war movement, and has since done important and highly-valued academic work in the area of science policy while continuing with his engagement in defence of civil and human rights in India and elsewhere in the world. His active opposition to the Indo-China war apparently cost him a US. government research fellowship in the year 1969-70. No stranger to controversy, Dr Sharma has always conducted himself with great honor and integrity, both in his scholarly work and his activities in connection with problems of freedom and justice.”
The author repeats what the Denise the Menace said:
If I went only where I’m invited,
I wouldn’t have gone to go anywhere!
