About Book :
It is a very intelligent display of how the oldest faith on this planet can be very easily merged with recent qualities as compared to any other Semitic faiths, because the very basis of our faith is questioning ourselves and changing along with times.
Away from the raucous debate around religions, this is the journey of a common Hindu, an attempt to understand why for so many Hindus their faith is one of the most powerful arguments for plurality, unity in diversity and even more than the omnipresent power of God, the sublime courage and conviction of man.
