^Like I said -- you're talking about the present and recent past, while I'm talking about a history that covers thousands of years. The way any culture is in the here and now is only a narrow cross-section of its development over millennia. Hindu culture in the present is understandably conservative and traditional as a reaction to centuries of colonial domination by the West; after all, it's only been 62 years since independence. But it would be a grave mistake to assume that it or any other culture has always been exactly like it is now.
