History & Politics

The Republic of India, the India that this book talks about, is a composite states. A reality that is extremely complicated made up of many different layers that make it very difficult if not impossible to simplify or try to describe in few words. Contemporary India is a country of great contrasts; vast riches side by side with the most absolute misery, primitive agricultural practices with the latest technology, giant cosmopolitan cities next to tiny villages that are continually threatened by natural disasters and famine. This something is the Indian culture, the traditional base on which thousands of years of social organization rests. The cultural precepts contained in the Vedic and successive sacred texts, have remained strong in spite of long periods for do reign domination.
