It has taken me a considerable number of years to determine what is Hindutva, in actual fact, for I was brought up within the Hindu tradition but had no gurus from the age of 18 when my parents returned to India and I was left in the United Kingdom to make my way in life.
I was enamoured by the British way of life and learnt the proverbs, most notable among them that springs to mind right now is that 'a man without a aim or ambition is a ship without a rudder'. So I set ambitions to do certain things. However when all these ambitions were actually put to the rest of what the Reality would accommodate they amounted to fools paradise to the point that today I am living on my pension which is meagre and rely on the charity of my wife to fund my hobbies, most important of which is writing. I have written 7 Books in eBook and print format and have plans to write more as I have my own Publishing Company, The Conservative Libertarian Publications Limited, registered with Companies House of the United Kingdom. But plans do not necessarily materialise, I have learnt the hard way and one needs to adopt a free way of navigating Nature which gives one peace of mind and freedom from mental disturbances such as paranoia, paranoid schizophrenia and persistent delusions, all these I have suffered from over the 23 years since losing my scientific career at the University of Greenwich in its Natural Resources Insitutue. Now I seek my path in total contentment each moment of the day carrying on nonchalantly, spontaneously and unpremeditatedly towards the next moment to see what that would bring in material terms for spiritually, I am enlightened enough to know what is true and what is false now.
It is with this in mind I have reacted to a post in Facebook this morning on the report at certain American Universities are minded to have a conference on dismantling Hindutva. If they know Hindutva, I would like to know what they mean by it for Hindutva simply means the essence of Hinduism, in the same way the Islam has its five pillars of rituals and practices.
