Part-1 of the week's summary can be found here.
"Rajiv ji but your blogs and talks (in u-tube) have been very very useful. I have
been able generate a lot of interest amongst my friend circle.
Surprisingly/sadly there is very little coverage in Indian media about your
books and your other work (correct me if I am wrong). But certainly lot of
people have started to take note of your videos of late."
Rajiv comment: The number of views for my youtube videos is very small when you compare with popular thinkers on similar topics. Regarding Indian media's lack of coverage - you are correct. One can understand the posture of the media who are ideologically opposed. But the tragedy is that even those who think along similar lines are more interested in plagiarizing and turning it into their own works no matter how diluted or poorly argued. Also, there is frenzy among the so-called hindu activists to boost personal careers and status by using whatever ideas they can quickly pick up and start throwing out as one-liners, even if they dont really get it. All this causes dilution of support for the heavy research and publishing work that remains mostly undone...
