A public personality on everything concerning current affairs, religions and east to west intercultural affairs, Rajiv Malhotra is the highly acclaimed writer of Breaking India: Western Interventions in Dravidian And Dalit Faultlines. He has gained immense knowledge about the social condition of the Tamil people, through the research he conducted in those regions. His Tamil writings in science are quite popular too. He is also a columnist with UPI-Asia, which is a well-known news portal.
The book Breaking India: Western Interventions In Dravidian And Dalit Faultlines is one which chooses to focus on the part played by various bodies such as the US and European church bodies, foundations, researchers, thinkers, government groups, as well as human rights organizations, in bringing about a clear distinction between the identities of Dravidian and Dalit communities and the remaining part of India.
The book, published on 1 February, 2011, has been written after five years of intense research and acquiring information in the West, concerning funding from abroad, which comes for these India-based initiatives. The research closely followed the money tracks that initially start off, claiming to be used solely for good reasons, but end up funding programs which are tailor-made to breed a race of angry young people, who feel disqualified from ever gaining a real Indian identity.
The recent development, in this scenario, is that of the 'Dravidian Christianity' drive. Breaking India: Western Interventions In Dravidian And Dalit Faultlines has clearly named people and various organizations as well, which include well-known Western organizations, along with their Indian connections.
The hardcover edition of this book is popular with the masses around the world. The main aim of this book is to kindle a rather transparent discussion, concerning the degree of these so-called human rights and other such training programs.
