About Kedar Joshi
Kedar Joshi (born 31 December 1979, in Mumbai) is a precocious philosopher renowned for his hundreds of incisive thoughts and quotations. He has been quoted several times in newspapers such as The Times of India (alongside people like Paramahansa Yogananda and Mahatma Gandhi), in journals such as the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, in books, in scientific magazines, on the websites of famous businesses, on wide-ranging blogs, in quote repositories, on add-ons, etc. He is being quoted since his early twenties, and as such he is probably the only Indian writer, and perhaps one of the few writers in the world ever, to have been so widely and variedly quoted at such a young age. Joshi is also a noted astrologer and a critic of the Maharashtra Andhashraddha Nirmoolan Samiti (MANS)'s campaign against astrology. He has been interviewed by some of the prominent Indian newspapers regarding his opinions on the MANS issue, and he has lectured on astrology at some of the reputed institutions in India. Joshi has collectively named his philosophical works as "Superultramodern Science and Philosophy". Various well-known encyclopedias have articles about his research on the Bhagavad Gita. Scholars and notable personalities, such as Ruán Magan and Reginald Massey, have had dialogues with him, some of which have been published in academic journals.
Kedar Joshi and his works have been praised by over 25 to 30 independent, published sources. A sample of such praise is as follows:
"Kedar Joshi, a Hindu philosopher of just 28 years but stunning lucidity, has ruled that the failure of previous philosophy is essentially the failure to see the self-evident." — Pedro Oller, ''Fracaso'', La Republica PREMIUM, 8 December 2009 (Spanish)
