The essays in this book seek to provide the reader an alternative to the “left-liberal” narratives that dominate Indian media and academia.

‘The Cultural Landscape of Hindutva: Historical Legitimacy of an Idea’, the title piece of this volume, seeks to establish that Hindutva is no artificial contrivance but an ethical concatenation of Dharma, dharā and rajya rooted in the Indic civilisational ethos and representative of a cultural landscape, or lifeworld.
It is followed by eleven more essays pertaining to various political, cultural and historical themes. Like the title piece, they all are attempts at ‘counter-narrativity’. Citing facts, evidence and drawing upon academic works, they seek to provide the reader an alternative to the standard, disingenuous ‘left-liberal’ narratives that dominate Indian media and academia.
