Breaking India: Western Interventions In Dravidian And Dalit Faultlines talks about the formation of the Dravidian Movement and the Dalit Identity, and how these identities have been created by the West with support from individual Indians to further Western interests.
The integrity and unity of India as a country is being broken up by three institutions and ideologies. These include Islamic radicals supported by Pakistan, Maoists funded by China and the creators of distinct Dravidian and Dalit identities, all of which are being supported by Western Institutions in the guise of Human Rights.
Breaking India: Western Interventions In Dravidian And Dalit Faultlines focuses on the third method being used to drive a wedge between the various kinds of people in India. The book has been compiled after over five years of intensive research. Money trails of institutions which appear to promote education, welfare, human rights, empowerment and leadership training have been looked into to expose their real intention, which is to create a separate group of identity conscious youth who do not identify themselves as Indians, but prefer to ascribe to a separatist regional identity.
Breaking India : Western Interventions In Dravidian And Dalit Faultlines reveals how outdated Western constructions and separatist identity theories have no historical basis, but are still used in academic research.
Breaking India: Western Interventions In Dravidian And Dalit Faultlines not only exposes the master plan of Western Institutions, it also names particular people and organizations involved, both Western and Indian. Since its publication in 2011, it has been the site of many debates and controversies. In 2011, Breaking India: Western Interventions In Dravidian And Dalit Faultlines was in the top 10 list of bestsellers in the country.
