Journalistic Work
A few years later I added Awaken Bharata that continued the themes of Arise Arjuna. I took a tone not simply to inform but also to motivate and to inspire. Hindus not only lack the information but also lack the will to stand up and present their views, however salutary, in the modern world. They have been too beaten down by centuries of foreign ruler and also confused by their own efforts to equate all religions regardless of their actual practices and beliefs.

I hoped to energize a samkalpa shakti or will power among Hindus and a sangha shakti or power of association to bring it about. Fortunately I was able to get Ram Swarup to write the forward to this book as he passed away within the year. He left a profound gap in Hindu thought that will only with difficulty find another spokesperson of such a caliber.

My journalistic work became read by a number of important Hindu leaders, as well as Hindu thinkers from different backgrounds. This led to various contacts, conversations and new information from many sources. Eventually I met with various important journalists in India like Arun Shourie, S. Gurumurthy, Varsha Bhosle and others active in the field. Though a minority among journalists in India today they have produced important works on a wide variety of topics.

In the space of the last few years I have seen several new writers taking up similar themes, making this Hindu journalism into a real voice in the Indian media. But it has yet to overcome the more prevalent anti-Hindu tone even in India. I expect that this victory will be achieved within the next decade as we can now discern the light at the end of the tunnel.
