Nilanjana Das (Author)
Synopsis This study is another step forward in our understanding of the wonder that is India. It offers meaningful information, critical perspectives and theoretical reflections in the realm of religion. It also offers a double critique of those who transform and use religion into an instrument of exploitation and communal politics, as well as those who mechanically associate religion with fundamentalism. In modern India, where the masses are grouped into secularists and fundamentalists; where people of every religions identity adheres to a vote bank, where the politicians get political mileage from killing the minorities, where religious zeal is equivalent to communal frenzy; academic ambivalence of the thinking people seems redundant, if not reactionary.
