    Nice

    This book is well written like all of Tharoor's books. The first half of the book is about our ancient traditions and evolution of our relegion and philosophy. The Second half is a detailed history of the Hindutva movement starting from Hindu Mahasabha, RSS, Janasangh, and BJP and how they succeeded in dividing the people of this country. But the most surprising thing is that there is not a single word about Congress which ruled for over 60 years when more scams and atrocities were encourag...

    Great product

    Why I Am A Hindu is a well-researched exposition and is yet a charming personal account -- and it floats seamlessly in rich prose and diction synonymous with one of the most widely-read and revered authors of our times.

    The book is divided into THREE SECTIONS:

    The first of which is titled My Hinduism

    The Second section is titled Political Hinduism and this is where Hindutva comes into play.

    And The Third Part is all about the Politics of Division.

    Worth the money

    Eventhough I disagree with the views of Dr Tharoor this book is a must read. He narrates the surge of Hindutva politics and carefully analyses the Hindutva theories of Veer Savarkar and M.S Golvalkar aka Guruji. The ideology of RSS has been analysed and his definition of Hindutva is also shared through this book. I feel that he is bit more cautious about his views becoz being a congress leader he has a lot of limitation in going deep into the contribution of Sangh to Hindu society.
