Living in India from 1961 to 1970 I intensively and extensively participated in Hindu-Christian dialogue at various levels, academic as well as existential, and I came to know personally most of the then leading figures. While Hindu friends even then kept regularly imploring their Christian counterparts to persuade their churches to desist from proselytizing, they welcomed and encouraged dialogue. During the last decades the relationship between Hindus and Christians in India has visibly deteriorated.
