    A necessary reading for every right leaning Indian citizen This book should also be read by people who associate intellectualism exclusively with the Left, while shunning the Right to be conservative, ineffectual and narrow minded.The book is a wholesome combination of author s POV followed by a series of historical essays speeches by Vivekananda, Savarkar, Patel, Vajpayee etc.I really liked the chapters on Shivaj

    The seeds of modern day Hindu India were sown many decades ago And every tree which has grown from then tiny seed , now casts a forlorn shadow on this mighty nation The author presents a bipartisan view of iconic lectures and debates and leaves the reader to connect with current state of the nation From Swami to Poets From Politicians to Presidential address The book highlights some very poignant seeds of thought.

    Okayish, difficult to read, bunch of essays, Swapan s PoV is not significantly included..Book is okayish in the reading In first three chapters, author set good amount of context of Right wing of India but in the later parts, it just includes bunch of essays by prominent right wingers of India I don t understand why only those essays have been selected Book lacks significant PoV of Dasgupta..Essays in book have too much poor writing style which make them arduous to rea

    If you are on right read to understand it better If you are on left read it to understand right There are not many intellectuals on right who can deliver their thought process in english For that this book is unique and deserves space in anyone trying to understand right wing The book itself though is a tough one to read Its not lucid Its grandiloquent and arcane sometimes However with some patience and labor you will get through it Its thought provoking, reflective of eruditi
