About the Book

A collection of poems, America Arise and Awake is a spectacular experiment in American literature. On one hand, it represents a marvelous blend of politics, philosophy, and spirituality. It is equally an exquisite creation of amour and aesthetics, on the other. Most importantly, the way it has tried to identify the intrinsic personality of America with the fundamental message of Eastern philosophy—universality of soul—is not only momentous, but also revolutionary in spirit. It might arguably be the first poetry book ever written in American soil that has peered so profoundly into the soul of this great country, and suggested—with extraordinary boldness—that America, as the greatest philosophy of freedom and liberty, realize its sovereignty over the entire world. No less mesmerizing is its vision that calls for the whole mankind to transcend the present order, created by major religions, and create a new one, consistent with dramatic change in ambience and popular consciousness.

About the Author

Ramesh Sharma, an iconoclastic thinker, has a deep insight into the Vedic philosophy, known as ‘Universality of Spirit’. In his previous book ‘America Tattwamasi’, he has tried to trace US Constitution and the Declaration of Independence to the fundamental ethos of the Upanishads. Much to the consternation of many, Sharma has also proposed that the United States of America be formally declared a Hindu State. A journalist with outstanding career of more than two decades, he is credited with giving a new direction to the struggle for democracy in Nepal, by exposing the grand conspiracy of then monarch in 1990. A pioneering advocate of Republican Democracy in that country, Sharma, had played a leading role in creating various organizations, including trade union. He has been living in the United States since 2004 alongside his family.
