A trenchant critique of the rise of Hindutva nationalism in India by one of India's best known writers and thinkers.





The very last work of Jnanpith award winner and preeminent writer U.R. Ananthamurthy is a timely reading and trenchant critique of the rise of Hindutva nationalism in India. Juxtaposing Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh founder V.D. Savarkar's idea of Hindutva with M.K. Gandhi's concept of Hind Swaraj the book examines two directions that were open to India at the time of Independence.

Born out of a meditation of the idea of the nation state and nationalism and what the new power structures and centres mean for the very idea of India the essay uses shifting tones and styles to make a deep elegant and heartfelt point about the human cost of radicalization.
