you were right on both points-
i'm an undergraduate and a hindu.
and i am a little distanced from my tradition.
but i like to find out more about it.
as far back as i remember i've always had what i call
'existential questions' - who i am, what i'm , what is
reality and more in the same vein.

But bid life sieze the present?
it lives less in the present
than in the future always,
and less in both together
than in the past.the present
is too much for the senses,
too crowding, too confusing-
too present to imagine.
