Scholarship or prejudice?
India does not need people like Witzel to save its soul, any more than it needs Christian missionaries to do so. It doesn't need them to teach it what dharma, truth or civilisation really are. Similarly, the world of Vedic scholarship does not require them to explain the secrets of the Vedas, which clearly they don't even suspect, much less know.
The joy of giving
More than 75 million households give for charitable causes annually in India. Interestingly, two thirds of all givers live in rural areas. A study brings out that people at large inherently feel that they have a moral obligation to give something back to society.
