Abstract:

Indian society is often described as one with 'unity in diversity' and as a composite culture. Since independence, India has also been termed 'democratic' and 'secular'. However, the discernible cracks that have appeared in recent years in these conceptualisations have led to contentious debates about the very nature of Indian society. Focusing on different facets of this exacerbating crisis, this book analyses the various issues confronting India's society and polity today which can assume crisis proportions if not tackled judiciously and expeditiously.
