By Aditya Pradhan

MARK Tully?s first book on India is now becoming prophetic.

And the controversies are so scholarly that soft-brained Satiricus finds it as hard to understand Christianity as he has found it to understand Islam. In fact, this Hindu simpleton who has no problem bowing to Rama and Krishna without question is not a little taken aback to see that all sorts of doubts have dogged Christ?s footsteps for centuries.    more >
