Should young men and women not consciously ask themselves what they consider to be a fulfilled life when choosing an academic or career path? Should not conscious thought about yardsticks of happiness and success also drive their relationships? Don't most of them jump into fields because of existing trends? The title story looks at these questions through the eyes of an NRI and his Indian classmate. Should a tragedy and resulting emotional upheaval be the trigger to begin the search for a purpose in life? Is Vedanta and its teachings a valid means to finding peace? Do young terrorists indoctrinated to kill in the name of religion find peace? The story, Religion of Love answers this question. Read also about a budding author and his interactions with a mysterious foreigner in a small town. How do highly qualified men and women professionals see life and marriage in big cities? Do we not take simple people like a seller of greens for granted in our lives? The book seeks answers to these questions in fictional stories based on the author's imagination and experience.
