On July 8, 2001, the Chicago Sun-Times reported on Kalki and Kanta Holbrook. "As Kalki and Kanta have grown, as a family and as individuals, so too has the spiritual movement to which they've devoted their lives," the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON). ISKCON, "which is viewed as a mainstream Hindu tradition in its native India, has begun to serve the broader population of Hindu immigrants in the United States." A professor of religion said "the movement has matured. They realize that not everyone is going to practice the kind of lifestyle located in the early years of the movement."
