In a knowledge-sharing scenario, argumentation can be based on the construction of arguments and counter arguments and the selection of the most acceptable of them in reaching new conclusions. This type of procedural approach of argumentation becomes possible only when the representational facts of world knowledge are well captured and represented. Indian philosophy suggests various agreed upon rules of classification to represent the world knowledge to enhance the procedure of argumentation in reaching new inferencing. In this paper, a new mathematical model that caters to the special requirements of classification and argumentative reasoning techniques based on Indian philosophy has been described. The main focus of this model is the emphasis given to relation descriptions between concepts and the foundation of invariable connection between concepts / relations that is dictated by the philosophy.
