Class presentation on Why I am not a Hindu

A presentation was made by a group of students from PSEco on the much discussed and debated work of Kancha Ilaiah, titled Why I am Not a Hindu. Each one of the group members took a few aspects of the book and explained them thoroughly – starting from the status of women among the dalit bahujan society in contrast to the relatively oppressed status of women in the brahminical society; to the stark difference between them and the mainstream Hindu society with respect of modes of worship or deities. Not only this, they were also able to bring out the passion with which Kancha Ilaiah wrote this book, and the passion with which he believed in his ideals. All in all, it was a very informative and well structured presentation.
