Buddha has returned not only to India but to all of South Asia, through the a book by Prof. Himanshu Prabha Ray. She had titled it 'Return of the Buddha. Ancient Symbols for a New Nation'. I came to know about the book after she had presented a paper at the National Archives, New Delhi, on 'Archaeology of Buddhism in India: Sourcing the Archives', in June 2015. Because I did not have the good fortune to listen to the presentation, I wrote to her requesting a copy of her paper, and she wrote to me that it was based on her book, 'Return of the Buddha'.
