Book Review: The Modern Day Hindu

The title of the book caught my instant attention. Though I am not too fond of reading religion-centric books, I could instantly connect with the book and got curious to read the story. Though I liked the concept of this book, it was an average read overall. I give it 3 stars out of 5 and here is my review of it.

The book gives a striking comparison between how Hinduism used to be in ancient times and how it is in modern times. There were times when the people used to meditate to lead peaceful lives. However, things are not the same these days and the people find it difficult to take out time for a break in their busy lives. This is a knowledgeable book and gives you ways in which you can still follow today’s world. There is too much to learn from this book, only if you want to learn.

Aarohy Kapoor, review, the modern day hindu

Firstly, I would like to say that the author did a great job of picking up this unique subject. Many people do not like to attempt something in such genres because of fear of making mistakes or hurting the sentiments of people. Hats off to the courage of the author. The title is catchy and I liked it instantly. I did not like the cover too much. It seemed more like a yoga and meditation book to me from the cover. The narration is plain and simple which was the reason I could not get too much involved in the book. Though I am a Hindu, I could not connect myself to some places.

Pick this book up with a neutral mind. If you are orthodox, you might find it difficult to complete this book.

Plot- 3.5 / 5
Cover- 2.5 / 5
Title- 4 / 5
Narration- 3 / 5
Overall- 3 / 5

    This looks interesting – I really enjoyed studying Hinduism at school so I know a bit about the religion but I think I’d like to know more about how modern day society has impacted Hindus. I love reading books about religion so might check this one out!
