A CALL FOR AN INTELLECTUAL (BAUDDHIKA) KSHATRIYA

Hindu intellectuals have generally failed in the modern information revolution. They have not articulated their views in a clear way. They have produced little by way of books, and almost nothing by way of magazines and newspapers to express what they hold to be true, even in India. While other religions have given clear views on various social and political topics, Hinduism is often without a voice. The most notable exception to this trend is the magazine Hinduism Today coming out of Hawaii (USA), organized and written mainly by Western Swamis. Yet such a magazine has no real counterpart in India or its different dialects.

Even pro-Hindu political parties like the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) have failed to produce any important or widely circulated newspaper or magazine to promote their views. The result is that distorted views of Hinduism prevail and are often promoted without question. When Hindus have taken to defending their tradition, which is the exception, they often do it in an uncritical way, using blind faith or rhetoric rather than clear thinking, writing books and articles mainly for a Hindu audience that already accepts such views. This is no way to influence intellectuals of a non-Hindu persuasion.

The language of modern discourse, perhaps unfortunately, is English. This should be of some advantage to Hindus as English is often their second language. However Hindus seldom learn to write good English.
