Description

Meera Nanda’s book is an impassioned plea for secularization of mentalities. She compares the polities of India and America to argue that, faced with the current right wing assault, secular constitutions alone cannot guarantee secularism.

She examines how India’s major ecological movements have been reframed by Brahminical Hinduism with some help from those within these movements. Her work shows the interconnections between the Hindutva scientism and national chauvinism, a factor crucial for its middle class support and its reactionary modernism.
