Thinking on Sunday: Humanism in India

Babu Gogineni talks about Humanism in India


The Story of how the Dalai Lama conspired to sacrifice a child for his political ambitions and spiritual beliefs; of what happened as a culmination of nearly three years of campaigning by Humanists; and of how the story unfolded on TV as a soap opera that gripped the imagination of South India.
What is happening in India, and what are the implications of the recent
developments in the country for the future of Indian Secularism? A look at the forces at play in the country.
