After living some years out of the country, I can more easily see how much one encounters religion in India. I really don't see what is all the fuss the Sangh parivar is making. Hinduism is alive and well. You visit hotels, company guest houses, hospitals, auto rickshaws - there are chubby Ganeshas smiling at you. (Ganesha seems to be the favorite of everybody, the designer versions rampant in all sorts of materials from Gold to Chalk is worth another blog). Inside the office too, on the desks, walls, there is invariably a religious picture along with Aishwarya Rai screen savers.

Is it possible that there are other colorful countries like India?
