Subject: Petition to withdraw an offensive and factually grossly misleading book on Indian and Hindu history
Dear Dr Venkatram Reddy:
The Penguin Group has published a book titled, “The Hindus-An Alternative History” by a professor of religions at Chicago University by name Wendy Doniger. This book contains not only many factual errors in Indian history but also misrepresents the beliefs, traditions and interpretations of a whole people.
Below is the text of a petition addressed to the President of the Penguin Group which lists some of the factual errors and offensive interpretations rampant in the book. The petition requests the Penguin President to withdraw the book immediately.
I have signed the petition. If you can spare a moment, please take a look, and consider signing it yourself.
Please also consider forwarding this message to all your friends and relations living anywhere in the world

This edition is a very special one. Exactly one year ago we started with the first edition of Pravasi Herald. It has been an amazing journey. Each month as more of you joined Pravasi family, more alive it came. Your active involvement breathes life into Pravasi.
For Pravasi to be a reflection of happenings in all our communities and to get active participation from all the community members, Pravasi needs “Ambassadors” in as many communities as possible. If you would like to make a difference in your group or community by sharing its progress and giving it more visibility, we would love to have you as a “Pravasi Ambassador”. You can be the conduit of information to and from Pravasi. Please call me to discuss your interest and questions - 205-516-2797.
