Subhash Gatade focuses on the right wing thrust in Indian polity during the first decade of the 21st century. His writings show that the ultra-right and Hindu nationalist political formations may have temporarily lost out in the race to form the government at the Centre and may appear in disarray, but the agenda of the RSS sponsored Hindutva project for the Hindu rashtra is very much in the reckoning and enjoys widespread State complicity. The impact of neo-liberalism and majoritarianism and their consequences for democracy and for the Indian people are meticulously documented. Above all, he shows what happens when dreams are deferred. No concerned citizen or student of contemporary India can afford to miss reading this book.
