One of twenty-first century’s most influential minds in Brain Science investigates the molecular underpinnings of one of the youngest religions of the world - Sikhism. With the tools of modern Neuroscience at his disposal, Abhijit Naskar, a globally acclaimed author delves deep into the neuronal basis of the origin of Sikhism. He coaxes us to look behind the curtain of a legendary divine experience that led to the rise of this less known religion from India. In his peerlessly lucid explanatory ways, Naskar takes us inside the protoplasmic realm of the brain of Guru Nanak—the founding father of Sikhism, and reveals to us how a conscientious man from the 15th century stepped outside the primeval cocoon of religious orthodoxy in order to restore humanism in the heart of humanity. Neurons, Oxygen & Nanak is the work of a twenty-first century humanitarian thinker about another humanitarian thinker from the fifteenth century.
