I disagree with the author about the amount of intellectual work done by the right. It may "seem" so when compared to the stuff produced by left. However, the work of left is actually nothing more than trash value.
Having said that the points brought out are valid and there is a need to awaken the right mins with more and more writings, which also appeal to young minds.
The lack of foresight in promoting intellectuals and sponsoring research by the Hindus cost them dearly and continue to be one of the biggest hurdles in the acceptance of Hinduvta across the board and its being twisted by the intellectual elite and the socialists into implying it as a derogatory word!Thhe few thinkers which Hinduism produced in the twentieth century, their writings remained obscured from the majority of the population by the Western-oriented publishing houses due to their refusal in publishing the works. It was left to remote editors to publish the works, which had limited reach and now these books are not available in print. An effective strategy to curb thought!
Every student of Hinduism must read the book to learn the truth!
