Every sixth person on this Planet is a Hindu and Hindus still constitute the overwhelming majority in India – nearly 80 per cent of the population. Humanity needs thus to re-discover the wonder that is Hinduism, the oldest spirituality still in practice in the world. This book is then about the story of the Hindus, their scriptures, their history, the bloody invasions that they faced over the centuries and the menaces that still threaten their very survival.
