This section tells about tradition Hindu people have like Why do Hindu put a tilak on their forehead?, Why is the Shankha sacred in Hinduism? etc.

I liked the book as I got to know about the science behind Hindu rituals which I was doing mindlessly because we are told to do it as it is since out childhood without being told the reason behind every rituals and rite.
So Go ahead and find the reasons behind rituals and rites.....
