about

This book narrates how Ayodhya's inhabitants experienced the events that led up to and followed the destruction of the Babri Masjid, the end-product of a century's effort to convert Hindus into a 'proper' modern nation. Woven into the narrative is an analysis of the culture of communalconflict, the nature of organized mass violence, and the political psychology of Hindu nationalism.
Ashis Nandy is at Centre for the Study of Developing Societies, Delhi.
