Description

This sensational book will be debated in slums as much as in palaces. What makes this writing different from those of V S Naipaul and Nirad Chaudhuri is that it retains faith, love and hope for India to change for the better.

Indian civilization is in tectonic transition. Caste cannot co-exist with democracy. Modern constitutional democracies are built on the biblical principles of justice and equality. Caste, Karma and reincarnation have entrenched today's Hindu hierarchy. Democracy is driving Dalits and other caste Hindus to rise up again 3,000 years of Hindu 'apartheid'. These cultural revolutionaries seek a religious philosophy to buttress democracy to promote liberty and dignity, human rights and servant leadership. The author shows the way.

These moving stories are a must-read for everyone who cares for India.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK:

I cannot think of any other person who is better equipped to write on liberty and dignity for our people in India. Vishal Mangalwadi's depth of knowledge of Hindu society comes not only from his intellectual training in Hindu philosophy but also from his living working and suffering with the lower castes and outcastes.
_ Dr Rochunga Pudaite

Mangalwadi has a blunt tongue, a solid intellect and a storyteller's warm heart.
_ Prof. Prabhu Guptara
