In Portraits of Hindutva: From Harappa to Ayodhya, the author traces the growth of what has today become a deeply polarizing issue. He recounts events which shaped the phenomenon and personalities that were its torchbearers and explores the evolution of Hindutva from religious to spiritual to political, spanning a period beginning from the Indus-Saraswati civilization, and rounding it off with the demolition of the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya.
