American Education too Objective,
Says Swami Raimohan Indra Dutla
- ♦,-1
Calcutta Lecturer Visits
Eugene on U. S. Tour;
Makes Investigations
Eugene can boast of a distin
guished visitor for the next fort
night in the person of Swami Rai
mohan Indra Dutta of Calcutta,
India, who is delivering a series
of lectures in this city.
A diminutive, modest-appearing
man is Swami Indra, yet he pos
sesses a most remarkable mind.
In order to investigate the educa
tional situation in this country, he
is touring the United States by
automobile, visiting every state in
the Union.
“Education, as a whole,’’ says
Swami, "is too objective, and so
subject to requirements that it al
most defeats its own purpose. It
should deal rather with the devel
opment of the soul.”
Swami Indra received his A. B.
degree from the National College
of Calcutta in 1905, and in 1920,
he took post graduate work at
the University of California.
Literature was his major sub
ject throughout the years of his
academic training, and he is ex
j tremely well-read in modern as
well as in classical literature. His
favorite American author is Em
erson, because the latter adheres
to practically the same philosophy
and conceptions as prevail in In
