The Hindu Way
The Hindu Way: An Introduction to Hinduism, the new book by bestselling author Shashi
Tharoor, whose last three books have sold over a quarter of a million copies in hardback,
is the perfect introduction to one of the world’s oldest, largest and most complex religions.
Although there are hundreds of books on Hinduism, there are only a few which provide a lucid,
accessible, yet deeply layered account of the religion’s numerous belief systems, schools
of thought, sects, tenets, scriptures, deities, rituals, customs, festivals and philosophies.
This book is one of them. In the tradition of classics of the genre like K. M. Sen’s Hinduism
and Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan’s The Hindu View of Life, this book captures the essence of
Hinduism with brevity, insight and an enviable grasp of the myriad layers and intricacies of
one of the world’s greatest religions.
