DURBAN, SOUTH AFRICA: The first two in a series of books on Hinduism in indigenous languages were released at a conference focusing on commonalities in Indian and African culture. The books written in Zulu and several pamphlets in Xhosa were launched as part of the 75th anniversary celebrations of Africa's Arya Pratinidhi Sabha (APS). For the first time, the South Africans of African culture have the opportunity to discover the cultural background of the Indian people and the basic tenets of Hinduism in their own languages. South Africa Home Affairs Minister Mangosuthu Buthelezi lauded the books and the Indian community for its cross-cultural exchange and promoting a greater tolerance, acceptance and affinity among the people of South Africa.
