Example text

When Hinduism is distorted, by either ignorance from outside or complacence from within, a very smart way of knowing the world--perhaps we could even call it nature's way of knowing the world--is distorted. Conversely, a world in which nature is demeaned and destroyed cannot understand Hinduism accurately either, and resorts to low and mean tactics against it. * Hinduism has travelled very far down the depths of time. Its future is now wide before us too, and it is a promising one. That future is in each and every child who lives on this earth today, and wonders: what exactly is this world of gods and goddesses that my parents so revere?

It forced Hindus in academics into a strange limbo; a continuation of the uneasy equation between successful Hindus and Euro-American elite intellectual society; you are like us, as Kennedy once told Nehru, Indian-Irish brothers in colonialism, maybe; but an Indian sticks out in ways Irish don't. You are told you are privileged. You are told you must now suffer the same liberal guilt white society suffers for its past. If you don't agree, you must be a racist, casteist, creationist, Hindu fundamentalist.
