Independent India is engaged in a many-sided renaissance and reconstruction more or less consciously directed to what may compendiously be called nation making (or re-making) in an image more adequate to the needs of the present and future of India as a strong, creative nation guiding the destinies of its people in accordance with a worthy and inspiring charter of life.

This era commenced roughly with the emergence and work of Raja Rammohun Roy in the beginning of the nineteenth century and has continued to the present day through the life-effort of notable thinkers in many fields, like Swami Vivekananda, Swami Dayananda, Shri Aurobindo, Lokmanya Tilak, Mahatma Gandhi, Gurudev Tagore, Veer Savarkar and Dr. Hedgewar. These are only typical names and do not exhaust the galaxy.

In the phase of the struggle (and triumph) with the British Power (typifying the entire gamut of foreign ideas and ideals), we have a similar period as in many periods in the past of the self- recollection and re-assertion of the national self-consciousness and of a conscious search for the roots of our culture as the living points on which we may re-graft current life and foster it to vigorous growth and power. In this many-sided effort, the image of Indian culture as the pattern of nation building is laid over with many confused notions from the West and from distorted ideas of the past of our own life.

It is too often forgotten that Hinduism is not merely a sect, a small religious fellowship concerned exclusively with modes of worship or social customs peculiar to it. The word Hindu in this context has a national character. It is tantamount to the word Indian, i.e. pertaining to a people living beside the river Sindhu.
