I am a born Hindu and I dont accept All Brahmans are intellectuals as you say. Of course, some are intellectuals as they are in all the communities. And we have got to understand, Hinduism is a SANATHAN DHARMA not literally a religion (Though we call it a religion). We have great concepts and great explanations with great contradictions too. In our Dharma, we have the freedom to think, talk and follow what we like the best in it. Unlike other religions, we are the most democratic one in the world because we have our choices. If understand our religion better, not all Brahmans are intellectuals, ALL INTELLECTUALS ARE BRAHMANS. So Basically we have to understand what is the meaning of sacred scriptures rather than giving an external coat of decorations up to one's whims and wishes.
