This book examines the ways in which Gandhi, Ambedkar, and Savarkar viewed and interpreted Hinduism. Based on their autobiographical accounts and biographical narratives, first, it traces the origin and development of their ideas about Hinduism. Second, reading through the original writings of these three geniuses, it attempts to reconstruct their interpretations of Hinduism. It argues that these three geniuses offer three different worldviews on Hinduism that are nonnegotiable.
