It seems a little proselytising of the hindu faith is OK even if the victim doesen`t want to hear it. The truth is faith is a volitile subject regardless of its base, be it secular humanism (which has really taken over modern science) Islam, Hinduism, wicca, or any other. To suggest yours is the faith of the enlightened is pure rubbish. They are very bright folks of all faiths, and we shouldn`t be so thin skinned as to be offended by their defence of their faith. To really be enlightened is to respect the faith of the others and convince with truth, logic and love and be willing to accept the fact that some folks can`t be convinced!
