Hinduism is the world’s oldest religion. Rich in history, mythology, literature and practiced as a lifestyle by its hundreds of millions of contemporary adherents, it has a dark side. It socially divides Hindus into four distinct castes.
Some facts I discovered after writing the novel. In English language fiction based in India or Indian’s there is little with about the Shudra castes, the untouchables of the Hindu faith. My protagonist Karam is the only contemporary fictional lead in an English book that I could find. It both shocked and surprised me.
