Organizations are very often conceptually mediated as we understand and value them in a variety of, and often diverse, ways. RSS has been quintessential part of Indian intellectual semiosis (the making of meaning) for decades and has played a critical role in Indian social and intellectual life. Ironically, plagued by the distorted views, RSS has persistently struggled amid the barrage of unqualified representation and misconstrued illustration. Dr. Rakesh Sinha, in this study cogently and convincingly provides the factual narratology on RSS. Tracing from pre-Independence phase to its continued significance in contemporary times, the book is a brilliant assortment of Dr. Sinha’s writings. An in-depth historiographical account of an archetypical organization like RSS is not always straightforward and unproblematic endeavor. It is invariably laden with meticulous and painstaking research, independent of discursively shaped understandings and views. Having the ontological sophistication to catalog the accurate entity of RSS, Dr. Sinha methodically structures the book to dispel numerous ill-conceived conflation of falsification and fabrication, intentionally weaved by pseudo intellectuals about RSS for decades to discount its contribution to Indian political body. About the Author Dr. Rakesh Sinha is an eminent thinker who has been credited for articulating alternative ideas on secularism, nationalism and decolonization.
