The paper starts with the following statements : “Though I have “fundamental “ “original” knowledge, I am not a fundamentalist.” This paper explores the aporia of the term “fundamentalism” and takes its recourse to anekantavada (theory of many perspectives) to escape the trap of intolerant fundamental essentialist existence of homo consumens, trapped within the domain of market fundamentalism.
