This volume is a workbook of the Secular Nationalists who profess that today the India is a composite of Vedic, Mughal and Western traditions, each fusing seamlessly into the other, as music and dance demonstrate.

In this well organized and perceptive book the author analyzes the concepts of Nationalism, Secularism and Hindutva and holds the view that since the tragic assassination of Mahatma Gandhi in 1948, "Nationalism" has subliminally equated with communal stance on societal issues, while" Secularism" has inevitably paired with an internationalist approach that concentrates on" World Opinion" at the cost of Indian interests.

Indutva represents the fusion of the essential concept of secularism and nationalism into a single, coherent, dialogue structure that combines a practical approach. It is a framework that accepts the need to accept; adjust to the virtue of adjustment. The world outside is a necessary part of Indian life, but the fit needs to be molded in a way that domestic interests get enhanced by the interaction. It envisages security structure of diamond strength, and domestic policies fashioned out of silk, so as not to harm the Indian people even while they are encouraged and protected.
