The book is an interesting read. It proposes that with neo-liberal economic regime India(and even many other countries like US) are becoming more and more religious. In short, with globalization India is becoming more religious(Hindu).
The book tries to build on the hypothesis of temple-state-corporate complex that has developed in India post 1991 reforms by quoting results of various surveys. It also shows how the Indian State is colluding with the temple and the corporate sector to promote Hin

Highly recommended reading.

Written before the current Hindu government came into power this book is prophetic in its predictions of the direction India is heading in and why.

A good introduction to the temple-state-business complex.

Several insights offered but not persuasively taken to completion. Some of the key points seem inconclusive at the end of the argument. The fresh perspective on several facets of hinduism (and the challenges they pose) is valuable and thought provoking.

Although the book itself reads more like a research paper (for most parts), it does throw up interesting facts, information and of course thoughts to consider.

It helps me understand a lot of what is going around in the world. Very insightful. A trifle academic and preachy in the writing style though.
