The central subject matter of this book is the Vedas. While it is a book that is written primarily for a layman's audience, this work is for anyone wishing to consider and follow the path of Hindu dharma. The Vedas are more a subjective than an objective science. It is true that when practising Hindu dharma, one needs to be logical and subjective. But being logical is not the same as using formal logic. The work is intended to demystify various (if not all) terminologies and nomenclature of Hinduism, and to break the myth that the 'Puranas' and 'Itihasa' are not meaningless mythologies or absurd Indian history but technical commentaries on Vedas. This will help the readers in understanding the various practices and rituals.
KV Vishwanathan (Vish), 54 is a Business Performance Consultant and an Executive Coach who lives in Hyderabad.
He was always intrigued and interested in Indian mythology through listening to and reading the stories as a child. He later passed on these stories to his children as they were growing up. But the constant questions thrown by them are what lead to his further research on the Ancient Indian History. This slowly evolved into a passion for the Vedas and their application & implication in our everyday lives.

While it is a book that is written primarily for a lay audience this does not necessarily mean an audience not versed in the ways of practising Hindu dharma. Rather, this work is for anyone wishing to consider the nature and to follow the path of dharma.
Some readers may find it strange that many questions are raised. But this is the common view of Hindu dharma which encourages Poorva Paksha- i. e. the art of enquiry and debate. Many readers will be aware of the Hindu dharma but, some may not be aware of the technical aspects of it, the Tatwams or the philosophical analysis of which is almost always an analysis of the Supreme Being who resides within you.door.
High-class philosophical religion is ingeniously made to penetrate into everything connected with the daily transactions of the religious Hindu. It is this innocent and pious Hindu that is now surnamed a Heathen, through sheer ignorance and insolence by all the alien non-religious Heathens. According to the western religious order, a Heathen refers to someone who does not follow one of the major world religions, and who may or may not specify any other religious affiliation. More specific meanings include a pagan, someone who does not follow one of the Abrahamic religions (Christianity, Islam, and Judaism);
