This book contains a part of my Ph.D. thesis, updated and adapted for generalpublication. It can best be read in conjunction with the main part of the thesis, now inprint under the title *Decolonizing the Hindu Mind*.
My thanks are due to Mrs. Yamini Liu, Mr. Gopi Maliwal, Mr. Krishan Bhatnagar, Mr.Pradeep Goel, Mr. Satinder Trehan, Dr. Tushar Ravuri and Mr. Vishal Agarwal, as wellas to the late Prof. Kedar Nath Mishra. But any mistakes are of course due only to myown oversight. Corrections and other feedback are welcomed.
