Full of new insights

In the Preface to the book, Prof. Nair has clearly spelt out the five strategies that he has followed in order to remain absolutely disciplined and focussed, and entirely faithful to the original, even while following the non-literal route. And these translation techniques, driven by such single-minded devotion and loyalty to the spirit of the original, have really helped Prof. Nair throw, for the first time in the Bhagavad Gita-related studies, a flood of light on a large number of difficult verses in the original, till now considered obscure by many.

This is a feature that all Bhagavad Gita scholars will be quick to notice and appreciate.

Most other translators who have translated the Bhagavad Gita into English have, for many of the key terms in Sanskrit, blindly adopted the same English terms as were adopted by the first few English translators, even though several of these English terms do not convey the real sense in which Sanskrit terms have been used in the Bhagavad Gita. But by being able to see the Bhagavad Gita as a homogeneous whole – and not as a strange mixture of disparate teachings – and by remaining steadfast in following the five translation strategies, Prof. Nair has been able to re-examine the real significance of these key terms and the appropriateness of the English terms often used as their equivalents, and to introduce new English terms as better translations. Some of these key Sanskrit terms are sat-tva, budhi and tyaga.

   
 
   Prof. Kev Nair

• “One of the world’s most respected English language scholars... Perhaps more innovative in method than Roget and more modern in approach than Fowler, Prof. Kev Nair is... one of the foremost Indian scholars who wield great influence on the thinking of the English-educated people around the world.”
– General Knowledge Today.

• “Prof. Kev Nair is regarded the world over as the father of fluency lexicography... Fluency lexicography came into existence as a separate branch of dictionary writing with the publication of Prof. Nair’s Dictionary of Active Fluency Combinations in 1986.”
– Competition Success Review.

• “Nair was the first person in the world to give shape to the area of study now known as ‘English fluency development’ and to systematize it into a distinct teachable subject... So he is better known as the father of fluency development.”
– General Knowledge Today
.

• “An eminent scholar of international repute and a renowned English language lexicographer”
– The New Sunday Express.

• “A towering English language expert”
– Competition Success Review.

"KEV Nair has been at it for more than ten years. Extensive research on the content, language used in translations and the interpretations gave shape to this version... Nair slogged for years, rewriting and discarding many versions... Years of hard work... LAUDABLE EFFORT..."

"A product of 10 years of the professor’s intense research... On the whole, the translation does not force you to see the Gita from a particular angle and then make you think that the partial picture is the complete picture..."
