Hi Anand,

This seems to be a plea for feedback - so I'll just give it: in your online communication you are very much like other Indian men I've met online. And the style of your website too has an Indian feel. 

But thanks for clearing that up - it does explain some of the things I had not understood about you. And yes, you are very un-indian (or un-Hindu) in some ways. 

As for Europe and the US being Christian - true, in a sense. Our culture HAS been influenced by Christianity a lot. But Frank has a point too: a large proportion of European citizens don't believe in God in the old fashioned sense anymore at all. Many are 'vaguely spiritual', instead of believing Christians. And of the believing Christians, less are identified with a specific Christian tradition.

But, the youth are more religious than their parents, so things may be changing (change IS the primary force in the universe :) )
