This study examines the relationship between state, society and democracy in India over the last decade of the 20th century, by exploring how the Indian state has fared vis-a-vis its three major goals in independent India: welfare, secularism and development. In exploring some aspects of the discursive terrain of Indian politics, the book provides a narrative which bridges the gap between political theory and empirical political analysis.
