His conviction that doubt is the other side of belief emerged from an uncompromising negation of everything that can be expressed, not from a desire for some comfy dialectical thesis .
'The Other Side Of Belief: Interpreting U.G. Krishnamurti' is a candid and refreshing chronicle of UG's life and the evolution of his radical outlook and ideas. Tracing the development of UG's notion of enlightenment as a series of biological mutations devoid of mystical or religious connotations, Mukunda Rao weaves a complex portrait of a man who doesn't hesitate to challenge and demolish society's most cherished and comforting values and ideals, but nonetheless commands a most fervent respect and veneration from multitudes of admirers.
