sanatana Dharma

Swapan Dasgupta writes in his column in Sunday Times of 26th Septembar 2010, “The irony is that this New India is more religiously and assertively Hindu than ever before. Judging by the sharp increase in middle class pilgrimages, the exaggerated sindoor of the new bride, the frequency of car pujas in temples and the holy wallpaper in the laptops of the young and successful, the sharp rise in national self-confidence has come in the wake of a spectacular revival of the Sanatan Dharma”.
He is a regular columnist, and I presume is well informed of what he writes. Is sanatan Dharma all about this. My understanding of Dharma was about social, economic and political justice. I thought being good was Dharma.
