Which deity to worship involved an element of local choice and different Jatis might worship different deities. Local versions of the to hundreds of different versions in circulation. Unlike in Islam, pilgrimages were undertaken under less pressure and with greater individual volition. Al-Biruni also noted how the Hindus were remarkably flexible and willing to change customs and traditions they no longer felt to be relevant or essential.

No doubt, the chapters given in this book shall help the teachers, students and social scientists to understand and explore more in the subject.
