What is true nationalism? What is pseudo-nationalism? What is anti-national? What is
patriotism? Is the shouting of nationalist slogans important to prove one s patriotism? Why

century. In this book, some of our finest thinkers and writers provide calm, measured
insights into the origins, nature, practice and future of Indian nationalism.
