Rashtra is a cultural and spiritual concept. It is not created; it is born. In contrast to the West, where a nation is seen of as the result of social, economic, and political causes, in Bharat it is an organic, living, and dynamic entity that is constantly evolving. The Hindu Rashtra is not a jumble of diverse peoples based on the convergence of blind historical forces.
It is neither a ‘melting pot’ wherein communities of people are melted into one single whole nor a ‘multi-cultural entity’ in which different people mechanically co-exist. It is an inclusive idea capable of embracing in its universality the entire world as one family.
