JUSTICE AVULA SAMBASIVA RAO

Lok Ayukta, Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad

I have gone through the drafts of your books 'Hindu Ethos' and also `Mighty Atoms for Tiny Tots'. As you said, edification is the principal aim of this collection of poems. You have covered quite a large area of Hindu and Buddhist way of life. As we all know, Hindu Ethos took shape in the wake of Vedas and Upanishads and has been growing ever since in depth and width. Though it did not take kindly to Lokayata and Chavaka, it is amazing to find that it has accepted Buddha even as an Avatar. Paradoxically after the Advaita movement gained force, Buddhism has been largely forsaken and forgotten.

It is interesting to note that the Puranas or epics are as powerful and influential even to-day as Vedas and Upanishads and the Bhagavadgita. In no other country, mythology and Puranas still continue to have such tremendous influence as in India. Learned scholars like you, as you analyze Hindu Ethos, are requested to find the reasons for this continuing tremendous influence of the Puranas on the Hindu mind, including a highly intellectual one. I wish scholars like you should go into comparative study.

Your zeal in teaching the Hindu attitude towards religion and Dharma is very impressive, I suggest to you that you should go deeper to the roots and give to the public your views on the relevance of the Hindu faiths, traditions and aspects of Dharma in the modern context .......

(sd.) A. Sambasiva Rao
