Letter to BS: India needs more doses of inclusive patriotism

For all the hype, the impoverished masses may not be swayed to accept virulent nationalism as 'patriotism'

Business Standard 

It is now clear that the (BJP) is keen on making the upcoming election all about nationalism and not aboutvikas. The phrases sabkasaath, sabkavikasand achhe din are no more heard. With nothing tangible to show on the economic front, it is understandable that the ruling party is determined to go all out to fight the election on nationalism. Sadly, it does not occur to many that a great nation cannot define itself purely in terms of another country. For all the hype, the impoverished masses may not be swayed to accept virulent nationalism as ‘patriotism’. What the country needs is more doses of inclusive and not of skewed
