Description

The political and institutional void that globalization caused created conditions which seem to be pushing fascist forces closer to State power. The rise of Modi without any pro-poor stand or any track record of welfarism is patronized by the media which is tied to the global capital in nexus with monopoly capital. Modi can successfully polarize social forces on any ground except economic. Modi’s rise is also fully backed by the Sangh Parivar whose worldview is reactionary and backward looking. This time, therefore, it is not merely the re-enactment of authoritarian Mrs. Gandhi’s style, but backed by a range of intolerant, organized anti-social forces entrenched in the womb of so-called civil society. It is at this turning point that India needs Balagopal and his penetrating intellect as a counterforce to protect, promote and defend democratic processes, institutions and values. He was opposed to these communal forces to a point of being contemptuous. We also miss Balagopal who was not an academic intellectual but an activist intellectual who made a difference to the theory and practice of democracy and contributed immensely to the enrichment of the form and content of peoples struggles engaged in the transformation of Indian social structure. This book, we hope, will help enliven the society in containing the aggressive march of fascist forces.

- G.Haragopal
