Description

The book offers a fascinating panorama of the people of India, their faiths, castes and communities, beliefs, traditions and practices - a profusion probably unequalled anywhere in the world.

The home of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism, India also has a very large population of Muslims. There are, too, different sects, one of the oldest settlements of Jews in the world, Zoroastrians and animists, together forming the rich texture of Indian life and living.

Interestingly, the Hindu caste system has influenced the people of other faiths in India. Thus, it is not Hinduism alone which has various sects and subsects. Other religions also have a number of similar groups, which is a unique feature of Indian society.

Here, then, is a rich introduction and handy reference to the people of India - - a mosaic of many hues.
