Awadh Kishore Saran
Awadh Kishore Saran (1922-2003), who wrote under the name A. K. Saran, was an Indian scholar, editor, and writer and one of the most important voices in the Hindu world on traditional thought. A. K.

Coomaraswamy, whose writings Saran first encountered when he was ten. Saran's books include Hinduism in Contemporary India, Illuminations, On the Intellectual Vocation, On the Theories of Secularism and Modernization, Traditional Vision of Man, Traditional Thought, and Sociology of Knowledge and Traditional Thought.
