1. What is so valuable about Indian culture? In particular, does it have any practical value in everyday life?
2. We Indians may have achieved something in the sp

I was actually disappointed with the book when I realized that it is a political manifesto for Indian nationalism. Similar nationalistic religion-based trends can be see in many parts of the globe these days, e.g. E ...more
