At about the age of 19, I began to realize that my formal education was separating itself off from my philosophical education. Of course, at the time, I did not know it in this way. I experienced it as a split between what I was being taught and my experience of what I learnt. I now realize, the philosophical experience of formal schooling. It was not until I met Dr Gururaj Karajagi at 19 that came across the idea of duality-pairs of opposites that always appeared together but were never reconciled. In him, it was the duality of the Individual and Social Manner which I could recognize. The question most of them asked me was always regarding which aspect of the dualism that I inteded to learn and be. The answer I always used to say was that both were mutually affected by the other. The real answer seemed to lie somewhere in the middle.
