Summary "With unheard of access to the Sangh Parivar (a family of organizations comprising the Hindu right), The Greater India Experiment explores the ideologies at play in this notorious group, documenting their quotidian activities. Longkumer argues that it is here that we truly see the full picture of the Sangh movement, not through the politicized lens of high-profile campaigns or activities, but through the gradual process of influencing social and cultural politics, and the eventual entanglement of the Hindu Right in the everyday politics of the region"-- Provided by publisher
