Chaudhuri begins the book with an elegant and beautifully remembered account of his childhood in rural Bengal and lakes us 111 rough the Calcutta of his youth. In addition, he gives the reader a lucid exposition of Hinduism beginning with its birth in the Yedic ages, lie examines the nineteenth-century Hindu revivalism of Swam Vivekananda. and probes the Roots of the chronic Hindu-Muslim antagonism that plagues Indian Society even today.
