  Kakar - LoveToKnow 1911
KAKAR, a Pathan tribe on the Zhob valley frontier of Baluchistan.
The Kakars inhabit the back of the Suliman mountains between Quetta and the Gomal river; they are a very ancient race, and it is probable that they were in possession of these slopes long before the advent of Afghan or Arab.
During the second Afghan War the Kakars caused some annoyance on the British line of communications; and the Kakars inhabiting the Zhob valley were punished by the Zhob valley expedition of 1884.

 India Travelog: Bookshelf - Sudhir Kakar's The Colours of Violence   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Kakar is fully aware of a basic problem in studies of such social phenomena: the bias of the observer.
Kakar criticizes several prominent contemporary Indian historians, such as the Marxist historians Romila Thapar and Gyanendra Pandey, for having "underestimated the extent of the historical rift between Hindus and Muslims and have thus invited a backlash to their Panglossian view of the past.
Kakar quotes Muzaffar Alam, a contemporary Muslim scholar at Jawaharlal Nehru University: "Indeed in relation to Hindus, it is difficult to distinguish between an orthodox theologian and a liberal mystic [Sufi]....

 The Ascetic of Desire - Sudhir Kakar
Kakar's novel is told by a young man who comes under the influence of Vatsyana, the author of the Kamasutra, and who comes to record his life.
This allows Kakar to invent a history and background for the mysterious author about whom practically nothing is known except his name, the area where he lived, and the book he wrote.
Kakar also fleshes out the characters, and particularly the young narrator relates his own story and concerns and confusion convincingly.

 rediff.com Special: Ashok Banker reviews Sudhir Kakar's new novel, Ecstasy
But Kakar's exercise was a fascinating one because it enabled us to examine our own Indian history of sexual behaviour and attitudes in the light of modern psychoanalytical practice.
Kakar clearly tells us in his note at the outset that Gopal's story is based on incidents taken from Ramakrishna's life.
The final dream of despair he experiences is as thin and cardboard-like as the rest of the novel, unconvincing in its humanity and unfulfilled in its storytelling.

"Kakar is more than just a recording angel: as a professor in history at Kabul University he was at the centre of events from 1979 until his arrest by Karmal's regime in 1982.
Because of his prominence Kakar was at first treated with deference by the Marxist government and was not imprisoned, although he openly criticized the regime.
Kakar brings firsthand knowledge and a historian's sensibility to his account of the invasion and its aftermath.

 Kakar, Afghanistan: The Soviet Invasion and the Afghan Response
The position of the Kabul regime (as Kakar calls it, refusing it the dignity of ``state'' or ``government'') was not strengthened by the internal struggles of the communists, in which Taraki was overthrown by Hafizullah Amin.
Kakar was trained first at Kabul University, and then at the University of London, where he took his Ph.D. in history; he returned to become a professor of history at Kabul University.
Kakar's political sympathies are quite clear --- he is a modernizing, Muslim, democratic nationalist --- but I can find no point at which they have distorted his narrative or conclusions (and I am a cosmopolite atheist, and looked).

In the just-released Mira and the Mahatma, psychoanalyst Sudhir Kakar delves into the complex relationship between a remarkable Englishwoman and the man she worshipped.
Kakar?s Mira and the Mahatma was released by Penguin exactly three days before Mahatma Gandhi?s 135th birth anniversary, a semi-factual, semi-fictional study of the complex relationship between Gandhi and Mirabehn, the most favoured inmate of his ashram at Sabarmati.
Mira is the heroine of Kakar?s book, the one person in Gandhi?s later life who leads him to clash with his self-imposed moral and spiritual codes.

 Ecstasy - Sudhir Kakar
In his preface Sudhir Kakar explains that many of the incidents in his novel are based on the life of a "great Bengali mystic" and his chosen successor (Ramakrishna Paramahamsa and Swami Vivekananda).
However, Kakar has clearly not merely fictionalized the stories of these two guys, the most striking difference being that he has transposed their stories from the nineteenth to the twentieth century.
Kakar seems, much of the time, to approve of this energy-sapping "irrational emotionalism", but it is unclear what he is trying to convey in this novel.

 IndiaStar Review of Books. Sudhir Kakar, "The Colors of Violence," reviewed by C.J.S.Wallia
Kakar, a psychiatrist in New Delhi, notes that his study is not grounded in psychoanalytic theory; it is a trained clinician's cold-eyed analysis of a complex, emotionally charged, social problem.
Kakar accurately diagnoses the major malady as symptomized in Azmi's repeated assertion of Muslims' having come from the outside.
Accordingly, Kakar devotes an entire chapter in recalling his childhood memories of the Partition riots in the Punjab.

The Toba Kakar Mountains are a Southern offshoot of the Himalayas in the Balochistan region of Pakistan.
The historical route through the mountains is known as the Bolan Pass, and though the mountains are sometimes inaccurately referred to as the "Brahui Mountains", Brahui is the term for an ethnic group that lives in the region, and their language.
In late 2004, John Lehman announced that the United States now had the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden narrowed down to a 16-square kilometre area in the Toba Kakar mountains; though they were hesitant to enter the area, Lehman using the reference that it would be "another Vietnam".

QUETTA, March 17: Pakistan Workers’ Party has called for immediate arrest of the killers of the party’s leader, Nasrullah Kakar, and threatened to block highways connecting Balochistan with Punjab and Sindh if the culprits were not arrested immediately.

 Salon.com News | Has bin Laden made himself expendable?
The American ultimatum to the Taliban to hand over bin Laden "comes at a point in time when it would be relatively easy for the Taliban to hand him over because their main opposition leader is dead and the Taliban's dependence on bin Laden has decreased," says Kakar.
Kakar says that it shouldn't be very difficult for the Taliban to "get rid of" bin Laden because it's "the sensible thing for them to do if they want to keep Afghanistan under their power.
Kakar describes this meeting of clerics as "a make or break moment for the Taliban." Afghanistan is ringed by countries anxious to knock them out of power so that they could exert their own influence over the mineral- and resource-rich region that they view as their own backyard.

In The Ascetic of Desire, Sudhir Kakar tells the story of its author, Vatsayana, and his times -- the fourth century A.D., considered the golden age of Indian history -- in a way that promises to make this debut novel a major literary event.
In Kakar's masterful account, we see Vatsayana through the eyes of his pupil, the son of a Brahmin scholar who is embarking on his first exploration of the sensual life.
