Musings of a 20-something lethargic IITian on India and Catholicism.

From the pages of Zenit:
The symposium was organized by the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue under the motto "Spiritual Resources of Religions for Peace". What interested me most was the list of religions represented - Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Sikhism, Jainism and Zoroastrianism. Who's missing?
Hinduism. I really cannot say whether this was because scholars invited from the various maths and peeths could not turn up for practical reasons. Or whether it's because the Sangh Parivar has managed to defame the Church to such an extent in India (and not always with truth, as I've argued earlier) that no-one wants to participate in an event organised by the Vatican.
I just don't know. After recent events in Kerala, I just hope for the best.
