She presents her recipes in clear, accessible language that allows both the novice and the accomplished cook to achieve authentic flavors again and again. -Michele Anna Jordan, from the Foreword to Cooking Along the Ganges Reviews for the Ganges Restaurant: …Hindu vegetarians ascribe important healing properties to certain foods… Too complex for me, I ignored therapeutics at the Ganges and concentrated on the pure pleasure of eating. Malvi Doshi, it turned out, is a genius. -Sharon Silva, San Francisco Focus Magazine I’d been enjoying Indian food for more than 30 years, but in this unheralded restaurant on a dark, cold street I tasted dishes I’d only read about. -Jim Wood, on the Ganges Restaurant, San Francisco Examiner Image Magazine.

Winner of the 2006 Gradiva Award A collection of new and previously-published essays that sheds light on the intersections between psychoanalysis and Indic Studies. While Indian academics and clinicians have been familiar with psychoanalysis for many decades, they have kept this Western model of the mind separate from the spiritual and philosophical traditions of their own country. Freud Along the Ganges bridges this important lacuna in psychoanalytic and Indic studies by creating a new theoretical field where human motives are approached not only psychoanalytically but also from the perspective of the teachings of Buddha, Tagore, Ghandi, and Salman Rushdie. The authors of this collection show how the insights of these Indian masters give a new force to the Freudian discovery by providing a basis to better understand the social and psychological Indian makeup. The book begins by questioning the applicability of the psychoanalytic method to non-Western cultures. It then traces the history of the psychoanalytic movement in India from its onset while it emphasizes the intricate overlap between Indian existential and mystical traditions and psychoanalysis. Freud Along the Ganges offers a unique study of the ways that Indian thought and psychoanalysis illuminate and enrich each other.
