ABOUT THE BOOK: In 'The Idea of Being Indians and the Making of India, ' author George Varuggheese has attempted what no other author has tried so far in the independent India. The great question that had puzzled millions of Indians was why India is still behaving like the colony that was ruled by the British feudal-fascist government. In this book, the author had tried to answer that question very lucidly and convincingly. And the result? A million dollar scam of a sociological nature, nurtured and sustained by the middle class leaders who acted as the founding fathers of Indian Republic, had come to the surface of Indian history of the past 67 years. With anecdotes from Jawaharlal Nehru's writings, he has established that the Indian middle class leaders who were products of the union between the bad sections of the British middle class and the bad sections of the Indian middle class, had decided that they were capable of taking the control of government from the British personnel and therefore fought for India's freedom from foreign rule. They succeeded in driving the British colonial rulers away and taking over their control systems of police, judiciary and administration for running the Republic of India. Now, where is the scam in all these? Well, In modern vocabulary, a scam stands for a fraudulent act or set of acts involving personal gains of the perpetrators of such acts. When a group of leaders after openly declaring democratic and republican goals for their country in the Preamble to the Constitution of their country, make detailed provisions for continuing with the feudal, oppressive governance systems of their erstwhile colonial masters, that can be called a socio-economic-spiritual scam sculpted on behalf of the Indian middle class against the 80% of the population which was excluded from the development agenda of the country. What is more surprising revelation in this book is the fact that it was Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel who led the majority group of capitalist leaders of the Constituent Assembly of India to draft the Constitutional provisions for retaining the feudal fascist governance structures of the erstwhile colonial government for running the Republic of India. While the Modi government in Gujarat had decided to erect a 600-ft statue of Sardar Patel in reverence to the heroics he had shown in uniting the small princely states of pre-independent India and named the statue as Statue of Unity, author Varuggheese had denounced Modi's effort as statue in remembrance of the feudal-fascist mind set of Indian middle class. Though Nehru opposed the feudal-fascist governance structures of the British colonial government, he could not do anything to prevent Patel from having his way, as Nehru's socialist group consisted of only a minority. Author Varuggheese gives a 12-point sarvodaya good governance model in the book based on the Mission Statements of the Indian Republic as given in the Preamble to the Constitution of India to recover the lost chances of Indian Republic at the hands of the founding fathers. It is for the first time that an author has tried to present the Preamble to the Constitution of India as the Mission Statements of the Republic of India. He also feels that the new political party emerged in India, i.e. the Aam Aadmi Party led by Arvind Kejriwal and Yogendra Yadav will be able to redeem India from the feudal-fascist governance structures foisted on the Republic of India by the founding fathers of India as their party is driven by the ideology of 'swaraj' or the rule by people. In fact, he is sure that the Aam Aadmi Party leaders will be called the makers of a new India, as India is all set to walk the path of 'swaraj. The Idea of Being Indians and the Making of India is a book meant for every Indian home or those who cares for India.
