"HINDU ETHOS - CAPSULES" as the title suggests, brings out the
quintessence of Hindu way of life and Indian Culture. Prof. K. K. Moorthy with
his vast experience and profound vision translated into scintillating poetry
the wisdom of Vedas, Upanishads and Puranas for the benefit of the modern
generation, which is unfortunately getting alienated from the supreme source of
knowledge in the world. Everyone admits that the spiritual Ethos of Indian life
and tradition provide the greatest unifying force for mankind, but
unfortunately, the myths and rituals associated with it have obscured its light
and distorted its vision. It is Indian philosophy and Hindu Spiritualism that
can explain the coot, tent and the purpose of life for happy living in this
is gratifying that Prof. Moorthy has done yeoman service to the modern world by
presenting the complex dynamics of life in capsules of condensed thoughts at a
time when the world is facing crisis of values and character in the midst of
gigantic material achievements. No wonder Dr. Krishna Srinivas, president of
World Poetry Society International, USA, has extolled the clarity, piety and
inebriating appeal of this book. Prof. Moorthy, an erudite prose writer, has
verified the episodes, Concepts and Tales "from our immortal sacred
Lore" and offered them to the inquisitive readers, with equally valuable
Bonus pieces, very generously. Three could be no better introduction to this
book than the penetrating explanatory note the author himself wrote for the
benefit of the readers. I was so absorbed in reading this book that I forgot
about writing my opinion on the book, till I was seriously reminded by the
author. I congratulate the author for this monumental work.
