This book is an attempt towards constructing a paradigm of Patristic Theological wealth and Indian Philosophical traditions. In doing so, the author conveys the profound concept of Autarchy as in Clement of Alexandria (4 C.E) with all its intrinsic values, while also illustrating parallels from Indian context. The text is dialectic, treading the paths of a post-modern narrative and situating a moral and theological basis for `greed line' in all its forms contemporarily.
