The idea of knowledge production through Śabda philosophy, while subsuming the native experiences of a society, is the motivational influence underpinning the launch of Makrand. The decline of classical modes of knowledge production including Marxist philosophy, although dissuaded by many, has nevertheless paved the way for emergence of alternative voices in historical unfolding. These alternative voices have propounded for engagements with traditional modes of knowledge production along with propagation of liberal progressive views in increasingly complex societies and subjectivities. One such voice gets enunciated with productive engagement of Śabda in the domains of science, literature, art, philosophy, and critical theory. Nevertheless, many historical projects have taught us that it is perhaps impossible for any philosophical tradition to enunciate a world view without engaging empirically with temporal cannons of knowledge. Considering these empirical stances, Makarand is indeed the point of contact where an exploratory dialogue of Śabda tradition is being initiated through a newspaper. This corresponds to the advent of a new age, a dawn of a fresh perspective that does not focus only on turning a next page in the advent of history, rather in encompassing, [re]formulating, engaging, and reattempting a productive discourse to unfold on the pages of a shared living history without any disavowal of existing modes of knowledge.
In the very spirit of our nativist stance, we seek the blessings of our readers to encourage our sincere efforts that are undertaken behind the scenes for these publications. We look forward to your ongoing readership.
