Pankaj Mishra (Journalist)

"Indian journalist Pankaj Mishra pursued the history and meaning of the Buddha -- not as a religious figure, but as a critical social thinker. In an intellectual and personal adventure, he pondered the Buddha's ideas in Kashmir and Afghanistan, Europe and post 9/11 America -- and found a new way to critique and live in the modern world." - NPR website
