    Freud and Jung may be the pioneers of this esoteric art of psychoanalysis but Kakar shows how some of their analyses must be fine tuned to Indian context He proves that Indians sometimes referring as non westerners are really psychologically a different kind than the rest of the world These essays, along with the Inner world would de mistify many things.

    The book is well written by Mr.Kakar like his other books in this genre but one thing I want to add is that the case studies would have beendiverse if he included westerners as well.
