Indian Multiculturalism; The Contemporary Scenario

Sharan Kumar [3]

Abstract: All democratic states in third-world nations fight silently for recognition of their national identities in international forums, believing that ethnicity and culture serve as the foundation for nationalism. However, Due to their diverse cultural identities, after gaining independence or liberation from colonies, they had to fragment and disperse, but this process was halted by the centralist government and globalization, which gave rise to the myth of cultural homogeneity. Every nationalist throughout history has fought solely for the self-rule of the people, but they have never defined that self-rule in detail. Instead of being recognized, those nationalists who had defined it have disappeared. This study tries to highlight the two aspects of multiculturalism in India, which has to adopt multiculturalism policies to alleviate the minority concerns. The evolving difficulty in nationalism is minorities are threatened to survive in majoritarian state.
