    In Why I Am a Hindu, one of India?s finest public intellectuals gives us a profound book about one of the world?s oldest and greatest religions. Starting with a close examination of his own belief in Hinduism, he ranges far and wide in his study of the faith. He talks about the Great Souls of Hinduism, Adi Shankara, Patanjali, Ramanuja, Swami Vivekananda, Ramakrishna Paramahamsa and many others who made major contributions to the essence of Hinduism. He delves deep into Hinduism?s most important schools of thought (such as the Advaita Vedanta). He explains, in easily accessible language, important aspects and concepts of Hindu philosophy like the Purusharthas and Bhakti, masterfully summarizes the lessons of the Gita and Vivekananda?s ecumenism and explores with sympathy the ?Hinduism of habit? practised by ordinary believers. He looks at the myriad manifestations of political Hinduism in the modern era, including violence committed in the name of the faith by right-wing organizations and their adherents. He analyses Hindutva, explains its rise and dwells at length on the philosophy of Deen Dayal Upadhyaya, its most significant ideologue. He is unsparing in his criticism of extremist ?bhakts? and unequivocal in his belief that everything that makes India a great and distinctive culture and country will be imperilled if religious ?fundamentalists? are allowed to take the upper hand. However, he also makes the point that it is precisely because Hindus form the majority that India has survived as a plural, secular democracy.
    A book that will be read and debated now and in the future, Why I Am a Hindu is a revelatory and original masterwork.
    Why I Am A Hindu is as balanced a book on religion as one can hope to write in these tumultuous times. It is also a necessary reminder to all Hindus that plural is the way they were, and plural is what they should continue to be-Scroll.in
    Why I Am A Hindu is a robust defence of Hinduism in all its vibrant, pluralistic glory. It is a must-read for every politically curious Indian, and not only for janeu-dharis-Times of India
    Why I Am A Hindu must be read by all, especially in trying times like ours- Mail Today
