[ZESTCaste] Post-Hindu India by Kancha Ilaiah

Post-Hindu India
Kancha Ilaiah
Sage, 2009, pp 302, Rs 295

A thought-provoking critique of Brahmanism and the caste system in
India, while anticipating the death of Hindusim as a direct
consequence of what the author says is, its anti-scientific and
anti-nationalistic stand. This work challenges Hinduism's
interpretation of history with a virulent attack on caste-politics and
also takes a refreshing look at the necessity of encouraging
indigenous scientific thought for the sake of national progress.
