RSS and Gandhi
The Idea of India



January 2022 | 352 pages | SAGE India
RSS and Gandhi: The Idea of India analyses the ideas of Gandhi and the RSS to understand how and where they converge on and diverge from each other in key questions that India continues to debate even today. The discourse on Gandhi and the RSS encompasses a fascinating debate in social, civilizational, cultural, political and religious questions which affianced the Indian minds towards nation building, both before and after independence. This book also examines their positions on issues and themes, where they may seem standing on the same page but reflect a tangential dispersion regarding means and methods. It discounts and dispels the predominant view that Gandhi and the RSS are diametrically opposed in their ideas on India and the Indian nation.
