Columnist, author and TIME and Esquire magazine featured political commentator Saurav Dutt provides a comprehensive study of how and why Narendra Modi's India offers a powerful and unsparing bulwark against anti-Indian and anti-Hindu sentiment in a country fractured by minority vote-bank politics, national-populism and ethno-religious division by left-wing supremacist ideologues, specifically tackling the emerging threat of Hinduphobia both in India and beyond.

Dutt examines why Hindu nationalism and the growth of Hindutva brings India towards a stronger form of ethnic democracy, one that has propelled India's economy, national security, federalism, foreign relations, legislative reach, judiciary, media and civil society despite the overreach of communities and political group-think that seeks to relegate Hindus to second-class citizens who are fair targets for Hinduphobia.

The book explains why muscular Hindu nationalism is the best attack against the demagoguery of victim-hood led secularists, intellectuals, universities, and NGO's that want to govern not only in New Delhi, but also in the states, constantly striving to threaten the just, secular, inclusive vision of India's Constitution-makers.

Writer and activist Saurav Dutt peels back layer after layer of cause and effect through the modern attempts to denigrate Hindu nationalism, religion, and the emergence of Hindutva that he argues is a self-corrective means to combat the institutional collapse that lies ahead for the future of Indians if the anti-establishmentarian populism of Narendra Modi, the BJP and the RSS does not continue to flourish.

Thought-provoking, controversial and pulling no punches, this book is an essential read for anyone who wishes to understand the nature of politics in India, decoloninization and the very real threat of Hinduphobia.

'Tiger' is the biographical account of Parminder Singh Nagra, a trailblazing Sikh boxer who fought successfully for the right to compete in the ring with his beard, an essential part of his faith.
