23 November 2020, Kolkata: Politician-author Shashi Tharoor’s latest book “The Battle of Belonging” was formally launched at the Prabha Khaitan Foundation’s signature event Kitab by Chief Guest Mr Hamid Ansari, former Vice-President of India, Farooque Abdullah, Chairman J&K National Conference, David Davidar, novelist and publisher, Pavan K Varma, former Rajya Sabha MP and diplomat, Makarand Paranjape, Director IIAS. Author Shashi Tharoor shared details of his inspiration for writing “The Battle of Belonging” and made a passionate plea to read this deeply-researched work. The online event, organized by Prabha Khaitan Foundation in association with Aleph Book Company, was flagged off by Ms Apra Kuchhal of Ehsaas Women and moderated by journalist Karan Thapar. Guests from the country and abroad joined in at the web event for a stimulating discussion and critical appraisal of Shashi Tharoor’s 22nd book which delves into current social, political and cultural issues confronting India. All the guests lauded Shashi Tharoor’s latest book and its potential to trigger serious debate on many issues pertaining to India but did not shy away from contesting some of the core concepts like nationalism, patriotism, civic nationalism, the idea of India and others elaborated in the book. Mr Hamid Ansari opened up the lively discussions saying, “This is a passionate plea for an idea of India that was taken for granted and is now seemingly endangered by ideologies that seek to segment it on imagined criteria of us and them. Shashi Tharoor has dilated on the essential ingredients of Indianness as understood in the freedom struggle and in the subsequent seven decades of the Republic of India. I found the essays on identity and patriotism particularly enlightening. The book’s analysis is comprehensive, yet it stops short of suggesting a doable recipe for correcting the shortfalls.” David Davidar of Aleph Book Company, publisher of the book, said, “I hope every Indian will read the book. It is a remarkably learned, even-handed and lucid study of foundational ideas and concepts and national values. This book falls in the rarest-of-rare `Indispensable’ category – books you cannot do without. I hope people will be reading and discussing “The Battle of Belonging” fifty years from now.” Describing the reasons for penning this book, Shashi Tharoor said, “This book is the culmination of a lifetime’s thoughts, readings and arguments on issues of nationalism and patriotism which are not just theoretical or academic but intensely personal too. The book was prompted by the rise of a fundamental challenge to the very essence of Indian nationalism. The book offers...
