Plinius replied to Milind Srivastava's discussion Arguments against Hinduism
"The Hindus I spoke to told me that their gods each stand for a characteristic or centre of attention. That sounded rather detached to me. But then I never knew if I had spoken to a fundie Hindu or not, so I have no idea what is average for a Hindu."

"My primary problem with hinduism is the caste system and how it locks people into arbitrary life tracks.  Other than that, I'm not certain I know enough to have a valid opinion."

"I really do not know, but if it is a religion that has a deity it is not believed by anyone on this site. You might have to find another Hindu (or ex-Hindu) to find answers to your question."

Greets and salutes, Milind.  I had the privilege of visiting India back in 1985, on a field service trip to Semiconductor Complex Ltd. in S. A. S. Nagar in Punjab state.  Also had a chance to sight-see, eat excellent curry and visit the Taj Mahal after all the work was done (WOW!).  Had a great time there.

Hope you have a terrific time HERE!
