About the Book

In the early part of the twentieth century, Sri Aurobindo wrote: For this thing is written in the book of God and nothing can prevent it that the national life of India will meet and possess its divine and mighty destiny" Sri Aurobindo had taken an active part in the Freedom movement and on 15 August 1947, Indian got its freedom but it was a fissured freedom. On that very same day with regard to the partition, Sri Aurobindo said: "This must not be; the partition must go. Let us hope that this may come about naturally, by an increasing recognition of the necessity not only of peace and concord but of common action, by the practice of common action and the practice of common action and the creation of means for that purpose.

This book is an attempt to trace the political history of India from the ancient times to the modern day. It looks at the partial success and failure of unification in the past history of India and tries to analyse the causes of the failure. It is important to note a few points that have been stressed in the book.

Firstly, great importance has been given to the psychological and deeper cultural unity. No sound and lasting political unity can be build without this strong psychological foundation.

Secondly, this psychological oneness has to be manifested in the political system as well as in the religious field. Therefore suggestions have been made to bring about a national government and to move towards spirituality in order to harmonize all the religions in India. The aim of this book is to initiate a dialogue among all those who believe in the higher destiny of India to further the cause of unity and harmony in the subcontinent.
