WHY SO MANY LITERATURE :  This is a question asked by many. The answer is very simple, scientific, logical and rational.  No scholar / expert / god man can give all the knowledge needed for human beings. It cannot be given in one book as one subject that too during a particular period time.

Human beings always  cherish the diversity in each and every aspect of their life. Hence one book, written by one scholar, during a particular period of time CAN  NEVER  cater the FULL / INTEGRATED need of human beings in the world.  Hence  Hindus knew pretty well that diversified knowledge, in diversified literature on diversified   subjects are to be written, refined, edited, updated always  when the human culture and civilization progress.

That is why Hindus have more than 2000 foundation literature.  More than  10,000  commentaries  having quality equal to the foundation  literature and  more than one lakh sub commentaries in various languages.   (Where as Muslims, Christians and others have only one.  More than one is not permitted, nor permission given for addition, deletion, modification and correction.  Even improvement is not permitted. (More than one is strictly prohibited)
