  1. Dear Sir,

    I wish to register for the course, Hindu studies. I’m a 57 yr old, Indian lady and hope that my age will not debar me from joining. I have always wanted to know more about my religion but couldn’t gain much due to my convent education etc. I’m afraid that my ignorance is such that should there be a basic screening, I may not meet the mark. Please help me to finally overcome this huge gap.

    Please direct me to the correct entity so that I may be able to take this further.

    Thanks and regards,
    (Mrs.) Kiran Malaviya
