Journalistic Work
Spirituality is a domain that has great dangers as well as great opportunities for the soul. Unless we approach it with critical insight and self-introspection we may get caught in various illusions or prejudices that will cause more harm than good.

Ram Swarup was not alone in his work but had an able colleague and friend who complemented his work on many levels. Sitaram Goel was actually the main writer in Voice of India. He was a more researched scholar than Ram Swarup and produced many more books. Sitaram followed a strong rationalistic point of view that did not compromise the truth even for politeness sake. His intellectual rigor is quite unparalleled in Hindu circles where soft, syncretic and apologetic tones prevail. He took Swarup’s key insights and developed them into a profound and incisive historical and political analysis.

I admired Sitaram’s honesty, directness of expression and fearlessness. He complemented the mystical vision of Ram Swarup with a practical side. He would not compromise truth for anything. He wouldn’t bow down before any personalities, however great, or indulge in hyperbole and fantasy like many Hindus. Nor would he seek to escape from existent problems into some idealistic future. He remained focused on actual issues and dealt with them with detail and depth.
