    1. Before I begin to review, it is necessary to keep in mind that this book was published in the year 2000, nearly a decade ago and India was then under the rule of BJP - Vajpayee regime. The Bharatiya Janata Party has raised to power with a comfortable majority after years of political instability and most of the intellectuals attributed their rise to the demolition of Babri Masjid in 1992.

Rating: 4.5 starsA powerful argument for secularism, this essay's only flaw is that it spends more time denouncing the BJP's and RSS' brand of nationalism (even if it makes its case eloquently and logically) than articulating a need for secularism.
