|I have always
written about whatever subjects I studied from poetry and philosophy to medicine and
astrology. Not surprisingly Dr. Vashta encouraged me to write a series of articles on
issues facing Hinduism today. I had an inside position on these topics that few Westerners
had access to. Answering his request I wrote a series of articles in 1989. Of these most
notable was a short piece called "Arise Arjuna", which appeared in late 1989 in
the twenty-fifth anniversary issue of Hindu Vishwa, the journal of the Vishwa Hindu
The same trend developed back in America.
In 1991 I wrote several pieces for India Times, a small Indo-American newspaper, starting
with a short article on the Myth of the Aryan Invasion. My articles eventually appeared in
a number of Indo-American newspapers including News India Times and India Post. Other
Indo-American publications like India West gave favorable reviews of my books.
Shortly thereafter I began to submit articles to the
Organizer, the main English language publication for the RSS in India, and became a
regular contributor. In time I wrote for many other publications in India as well. This
began my career as a Hindu journalist, which I never planned or got paid for.
