9781461118626: Why I am Not a Hindu

Inspired by Bertrand Russell's "Why I Am Not a Christian", which the author, Dr. Ramendra admired, and M. K. Gandhi's "Why I Am a Hindu", with which he disagreed; the author explains why he is not a Hindu by conviction, though he is a Hindu by birth. "Why I Am Not a Hindu" was first published in print edition in 1993 (second edition 1995). It has been translated into Hindi, Oriya and Malayalam. This is the third revised edition of the book.

"For the students of religion on the one hand and for agnostics and atheists on the other, this book is priceless, and for the ordinary reader it is thought provoking to say the least." --The Hindustan Times, Patna, India.
