Namaste AmIHinduji,

TTA wrote a great review of the book here (http://hindudharmaforums.com/showthread.php?t=7753). Everything I've heard about it has been positive. I haven't gotten around to reading it yet, but it's on my list.

Jai Sri Ram

Thank you for proving me link to the review. I want to read this as I heard about this book on Hindu Summit by Forum for Hinduawakening.

every hindu should read this book to know various machinations of anti-hindu (in essence anti-india) forces. especially if you are from the south :) I strongly recommend. I would go out further and say even if you have not read the Bhagavad Gita, read this book first.

Namaste,

When we, a handful of native Hindus on the HDF, have such (uncompromising) divergent views about Hinduism, that full scale egotistical wars erupt over trivial things, what chance do we have of saving the motherland from disintegration? Would reading a book change us overnight? Would we drop our differences and fall in line to recognize the views of a leader to be the final word on Hinduism? And, just who would that leader be? When we shake hands with clenched fists, how do we reach a consensus and become friends? As I have said before in this forum, Hinduism, in all its hues and colors and incarnations, is the glue that binds the people of Bharat. In the absence of that, we will disintegrate without any outside help. We don't need to look outside to find a villain. The devil resides within us. Oh, never mind the thoughts of a senile old man!

Pranam.

If someone wants to follow Dharma, then there is not negotiation. But people call themselves Hindu mere by birth, and negotiate with spiritual practices. We are so less on HDF, at-least doing one or two spiritual practices but what about others. Indian is argumentative (Arguementative Indian by Amartya Sen), every Hindus person is granted independence to question other person, but now a days too much of bureaucracy entered in Hindus. We forgot out motive, and indulge in person motives.

So many chiefs but no one Indian.
