For the sake of objectivity, why couldn't obtain the perspective of Hindu leaders from America who could explain the significance of the beliefs, rituals, traditional respect and tolerance of Hinduism to Kanika? For example, a Hindu can respect Jesus far more than a Christian can "tolerate" any other religious tradition. Also, there are several irrational elements in Christianity as well(Virgin giving birth, walking on water). That goes with the territory for any religion.

Also, could her embarrassment stem from a need to fit into mainstream culture (friends)?
