Format: Paperback
Puniyani does a fine job of reviewing the origins of communal divides in Indian society as has been documented by front ranking scholars in the subject. His thesis on the rise of the RSS as a right wing counterpart to the relatively egalitarian nationalism of Gandhi, Nehru and Tagore is richly illustrated by a cornucopia of factual detail. His work is relevant to anyone interested in the social psychology of fascism and communalism, regardless of their political orientation. Itis worth reading for the rich facts and pithy arguments alone.

Format: Paperback
People like Ram Puniyani are known Communist propagandists, who are working overtime against Indian Religions, and Traditions. People like this, by their one sided denigration is causing immense crack to the Socially derived Tolerance, unique to Indian Society.

These are throughly Westernised people, who have little clue to Gandhi, Tagore, Bankimchandra or other Great Indian Nationalists. Being totally urban people, they have little idea how tolerance works.
