Abstract

This paper seeks to explore the role of digital media and other forms of networking in the development of Hindu activism in a diaspora environment. It asks how the opening up and development of new digital media environments has impacted on Hindu activism, its potential for growth and its resonance in broader social and political spaces. The paper focuses on a case study of one Hindu activist movement that has emerged in the UK in recent years, Sewa Day, and reflects on its significance for our understanding of Hindu activism as it develops in these expanded contemporary environments
