“How the British Re-wrote Indian History”
The Vedic Foundation travelled to ten different U.S. cities this past weekend in order to show their proud support for the country of India. Colorful posters (click on the names for enlargement) explaining “The Amazing Facts about India” and “How the British Re-wrote Indian History” caught everyone’s attention while, thousands of Indians shared their opinions about “What Makes Indian Heritage Unique?”
Among the places attended were Dallas, Houston, Austin, Atlanta, Chicago, Columbus, Orange County, Washington D.C., New Jersey, and Fremont. Despite the fact that each city’s event was unique, The Vedic Foundation goal remained the same...“To Re-establish the Greatness of Hinduism”.

A decorated booth was set up at each location featuring the newly released "Amazing Facts About Hinduism". This book was printed for college-age youth as a quick reference guide about the greatness of Indian history, religion and civilization.

In addition, more than 250 people around the country signed up for Vedic Foundation study groups based on "The True History and the Religion of India". These study groups will begin in the Fall of 2003 around the country. To sign up for these courses, please go to http://www.thevedicfoundation.org/register.

are still fighting for our intellectual and religious independence. The effects of Great Britain’s far reaching plot to suppress our religion and distort our history still linger even today in the 21st century. The newest and most powerful tool in this battle for our complete independence is authentic knowledge about the true origins of India and of Hinduism which this book describes in detail.”
