Sri Aurobindo said on 15 August 1947 regarding the partition of India, "This must not be; the partition must go."
This book is an attempt to trace the political history of India from the ancient times to the modern day. It looks at the partial success and failure of unification in the past and tries to analyse the causes of the failure. Great importance has been given to the psychological and deeper cultural unity, which is the foundation of political unity.
Suggestions have been made to move towards spirituality in order to harmonise all the religions in India, and to lead to the final solution of the problem of political unity of the Indian subcontinent.
