Hearty kudos to R.K. Mehra, his son Kapish Mehra and Rupa Publications for having published their 11-volume set of Encyclopedia of Hinduism, which Indrajit Hazra, the reviewer of these volumes has described in the Hindustan Times as “a startlingly good treasure trunk for any one interested in the history of ideas to dip into.”


hinduisumHazra quotes R.K. Mehra telling him that he considers the Encyclopedia to be “the most important publication of his career.”  The H.T. has displayed the review prominently under the bold heading: “Hinduism is an Intellectual System, not a Religion”.
