This book tries to debunk many of the pet ideas that some of us have cultivated in recent decades. There is a genuine, honest effort made in this book to define Secularism, from the Indian standpoint, to show what it embraces and what it does not, so as to make it obvious to an average Indian that this concept is highly creative, and a sine qua non for a multi-religious, multi-lingual, multi-cultural society like India's; whereas communalism is destructive, divisive and disintegrating. There is no attempt here to take sides or to camouflage the shortcomings or failures of anyone. It is a book that all true patriots should take serious note of if this madness of communalism is to march forward as a civilized nation.
