Gandhi's Hind Swaraj: Retrieving the Sacred in the Time of Modernity

Gandhi's approach to history is civilisational - normative and value-centric. It is a blend of cosmological and historical time, which strongly resists the fullfledged secularising tendencies within historical interpretations. This essay revisits Gandhi's Hind Swaraj, which depicts a "clash of civilisations" between values and since it deals with normative systems it maps the political terrain differently. The attempt here is to reinterpret Gandhi in the time of modernity.
