About the contents of the website:

We are called Hindus today just because the Persians could not pronounce Sindu preciesly. Hindus are therefore those who live in the land where the river sindu flows. and Hinduism is the sum total of the spiritual tradition of this land; that is why 'SINDULAND'. And the thought is truly genius.

Today there great flux in the intellectual sphere in India. While there is surely a cacophony of barking wild dogs (which we can ignore), there is also no sufficient clarity amongst those who seek to truthfully reason out. There are pulls in all kinds of directions because of a multitude of ideologies, systems, religions, methods, parties, loyalties, classes, castes, ethnicities... Much of this confusion can also be attributed to the shrinking of the world and the coming of the global village. Is there a way out of this in a way that the nation can clear its mind and team up? Did our ancient sages have ideas that could cut through the maze and bring forth harmony? And if they did have answers, how would these answers translate on ground to make sense in the present time and age?

The website seeks to present the answers to these questions... The author presents his findings just as a scientist would seek to present his work to a general audience. Having probed these questions for years, and having found the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle fall into place, the author seeks to present the solutions to those that can make a difference.

The two basic ideas that come through as relevant in making that difference are:
1) the true nature of Ancient Indian learning and wisdom and
2) the true nature of decentralization of political power, the way it was traditionally practiced in the Indian Sub-continent.
