This divide between India and Bharat existed before as Nagara and Grama — the city and the village — in Sanskrit literature. Pupul Jayakar has written about it in her book, The Earthen Drum. There is an India of the city and India of the village and the two are different.
Migrants bring Bharat into India, and take India into Bharat. Both nourish each other. You keep talking about Subjective Reality and its importance in the Indian world view. Objective Reality is dehumanising monotheism, where truth lies outside the individual in measurements. This view of the world is classic Abrahamic, which seeks commandments for a tribe from a supernatural force — God.
Science also locates truth in measurement, which is independent of human gaze. In fact, human gaze is seen as bias or prejudice, almost a pollutant in the sciences. This way of thinking works very well with material sciences but not with social sciences where human imagination plays a key role, where political and economic views of the world are but opinions and theories, and not truth. There is nothing objective about capitalism or communism; they are just different ways by which the world is explained.
I feel this obsession with Objective Reality is a veneer used to hide the truth of human psychology, the animal instincts to dominate and be territorial. Subjectivity is what makes us human. Rejecting it has made the global village a place where technology is more valued than people. This trend is dangerous. Do you think Greek mythology is less intricate and more linear than Indian mythology?
But it is linear.
This is why modern discourse is also linear, our yearning for creating a better world, our seeing the world as problem chaos that needs to be solved order in this one lifetime before crossing Styx, the river which forms the boundary between earth and the underworld. Modern thought thus aligns well with the Greek mythic structure, but of course, we want to believe we are objective and rational. Indian mythology is based on karma. Every moment is a fruit of seeds sown in the past and every moment we are sowing seeds for the future. This is not the way Europe and America think.
They are too busy fighting the monster to see themselves as the mother of the monster. Who is your most favourite Greek hero or mythical character? Is there any Indian counterpart? I love the monsters of Greek mythology — Minotaur half-bull and half-man , Medusa woman with snakes for hair , Chimera part-lion, goat and snake. They are killed by Greek heroes, or feared as the cause of pandemonium as in the case of Pan half-human, half-goat.

In Indian mythology, we worship beings that are a combination of multiple animals. So we worship Narasimha half-lion, half-bull and Yali part-lion and elephant and the Nagas. The core of Indian mythology is dharma. And dharma is related to the divide between humans and nature prakriti. Dharma makes no sense unless you appreciate karma concept of rebirth. That makes Indian mythology unique, for no one is born with a clean slate. We are born with baggage and we die with baggage that is carried forward to the next life.
