Dr. Radhakrishnan's Writings

Guest Author - Preena Deepak

Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan is known to have worn several hats all through his illustrious career. He was the first Vice President and subsequently the second President of independent India. He has served as Professor in several National and International institutes of repute and was the Indian Ambassador to the Soviet Union. His philosophical mind and gifted pen added to yet another role; that of a writer.

Born in a poor Brahmin family in South India, Dr. Radhakrishnan had a flair for the English language even at a young age. His profile as a writer emerged even before he graduated from the Madras Christian College where he did post graduation in Philosophy. Dr. Radhakrishnan’s MA thesis titled ‘The Ethics of the Vedanta’ which he submitted with much hesitation went on to open the door to his literary accomplishments. Besides receiving the highest appreciation from his tutor, this work became Dr. Radhakrishnan’s first publication.

Dr. Radhakrishnan authored around 40 books in his lifetime, each a masterpiece crafted with intellect, displaying the depth of his knowledge in Philosophy and unique writing style. One of his earliest books, “The Philosophy of Rabindranath Tagore” portrays his respect and adoration for the Indian Nobel Laureate. Dr. Radhakrishnan went on to pen several other books on philosophy and religion in the years that followed.

In 1923, Dr. Radhakrishnan brought out yet another classic titled “Indian Philosophy” as a first of its kind in depth guide on Indian Philosophy. This work also won Indian philosophy a prominent position in the world’s philosophic forum.

Some of his much recognized works include, “The Hindu view of life”, “The Idealistic view of life”, “Eastern Religions and Western thoughts”, “The heart of Hindustan”, “Freedom and Culture”, “Mahatma Gandhi”, “India and China”, “Great Indians” and “The Creative Life” among others.

Dr. Radhakrishnan also had the distinction of delivering several speeches in National and International platforms. He used many such occasions to voice the need for Indian independence. He spent a large part of his life before entering the political arena in the field of teaching and lecturing and his birthday is celebrated as Teacher’s Day in India.

In 1975 Dr Radhakrishnan breathed his last in Madras where he lived after retirement. However he continues to inspire readers through the collection of writings he left behind as a legacy to the world.
