My Religion - Hindu in the records

As per government records my religion is hindu.I was born to hindu nair parents and they raised me up in that fashion.But i could not identify myself to the religion the hindus follow around me.They do all the wrong doing, drink, steal , cheat and then go to a temple and put some money in the box kept there.They offer some offering to the god and think that god is pleased.By the way they are offering the things to god in exchange of some favours, like more income from bribe for a person working in a Road Transport Office.I could not visualize god as a person offering material benefits inexchange of a bowl of gold coins, poojas etc..

I believe in god and i believe in the scriptures.But i do not believe the whole part of it.I imbibe what i feel comfortable for me.I can understand that Lanka was once a rich and prosperous country but i cannot understand that sun rotates the vindya mountain every day.I can understand that lord hanuman jumps over the sky to eat the sun god or bhagiradha praying and striving to bring mother ganga back to earth.But i cannot accept Lord Ram leaving Mother Sita in the dense forest since some rascal has told some rumours linking her stay at Lanka.

My hinduism is different.I can identify it with what Swami Vivekanandan's description of my religion.But cannot identify with the vulgar groups who paint Ohm in the public road disrespecting it.
