When studying world religions, it is always interesting and enlightening to analyze a religion's definition of "God." Though on the surface it may seem that all would have the same definition of God, analysis may reveal that this is not so. If it is not so, if various religious define God differently, what do the differences signify? Are they thus defining different gods?

You might like to think about the way in which Hinduism can be compared favourably or otherwise with other world religions in relation to religious intolerance and disturbances. Is Hinduism at its core a religion of religious intolerance or is it more or less intolerant than other world religions?

Obviously, we have no access to your film or your texts so we cannot really have much chance of presenting a thesis in these ways.

One aspect of the religion that you might discuss in these ways, though, is whether it is monotheistic or polytheistic.  For some religions, this would not be a higher-level issue.  However, with Hinduism, you would need to think about their system and try to decide whether all of the gods are really just manifestations of one god.

You could also try to think about the societal impacts of Hinduism.  Is the Hindu belief system, for example, compatible with democracy or with capitalism?  Either of these would be very interesting things to write about.
