The Tenets of Hinduism


Most of the problems faced by Indian society today are due to lack of proper understanding of Hinduism. This causes lack of self confidence, immoral life, differences between people etc. Swami Vivekananda was very clear in his conviction that India can be rejuvenated only by reviving Hinduism in its purest form as presented in the Upanishads.

This small book is a small contribution to the Hidnu community to aid better understanding of Hinduism. All the ideas here are from Upanishads and Gita only. Only the presentation is slightly different in some places.

Hinduism is an art of leading a satisfied and justified life. It is an all- inclusive philosophy for betterment of society.It is beyond dogmas and discrimination. It is for all  human beings and living and non living entities of this world.It talks about peace and coherence among all. It never proclaims its superiority over any religion or thought process. These are some of the eye opening facts about pure Hinduism which is essential for understanding of all Hindus.

Reaping the demographic Dividend: A case of Youth Leadership development


India has vast youth population but it should not be taken as an accomplishment as such. Indeed, it may emerge as an asset in due course but it needs a strategy to promote this youth population as a potential human resource, engaged in nation building. Young Indians need proper nurturing to emerge as youth leaders, taking responsibilities of future. Youth Awakening Festival 2011, organized at Pantnagar university was an effort to share this vision around possible avenues of Youth Leadership in the forthcoming days. We met some very successful Youth Leaders of the country in the National Symposium and saw the participation of large number of students from different universities of India in both the debate and symposium who put forth their thoughts and ideas on the subject. The outcome of the entire process of mental churning was to explore the need and ways for Youth Leadership Development, which has been included in depth in this book.

A read of this book will enable one to have an idea of our proposed model of youth leadership development which, we believe, can generate ideal Indian youth. This is based on the outcomes of our decade long experiment carried out on the soil of Pantnagar.

 Antarnaad The Inner Voice


This book is a collection of feelings of the author who is also our mentor and guide, Dr. Shivendra Kumar Kashyap, written in a poetic way. He has delved deep inside his self to bring out the pearls of wisdom on various themes ranging from life, nature, divine love, suffering, death and even on the art of writing and expressing feelings. In his words,

" Life is to live, to share, to get and give. I don’t know if life is anything else than that. I earnestly oppose all diplomacy of countries, races, sects, segments who talk anything more than mere and mere humanity. Smile is the bliss and it comes when hearts are convinced that this earth is really a place worth living. Let the life be free from all isms and dogmas, to remain liberated from bigotry and segmentation. Let it remain in most beautiful nascent state."

One can find this freedom and feeling of universal acceptance in his way of writing too in which he didnt bend the words purposefully to create rhymes but rather focused on free expression of the heart's feelings. Each article gives a glimpse of some aspect of his own way of life which entails embracing everyone and everything alike. It is worth reading for sensitive souls who will find their own inner voice echoing through the words of the author.
