This week I decided to sort through some of Audible original titles and I came across a new story from Mindy Kaling entitled “Kind of Hindi”. I found it to be an exciting title as I often make similar comments on my own religious status. I think as adults we are frequently asked about our religion and often can’t find the right words to label exactly what we are. We often give a vague description that starts with what religion we were raised on, we follow up with other religions we have been exposed to, and then end with some final thought of what we kind of are now.
Religion is such a personal experience nowadays that it often leaves mothers confused when it is time to teach and pass on our religion to our children. In this audiobook, Mindy describes her struggles of passing on her religious beliefs even when she doesn’t feel she is that Hindu. The book is funny, light-hearted and truly explains the importance of religion and cultural ties for children. It will have you sitting back and thinking about your own religious choices, culture, and how you want your children to develop their own religion.
