This is a collection of informed arguments on Gujarat edited by Teesta Setalvad.
A lie, repeated a hundred times dons the respectability of truth, said Goebbels. Today a concerted orchestration of selective statistics and distortions cloaked within the parameters of a falsely constructed discourse that strips the word 'development' of vital elements that enrich human, societal and even state endeavour, is being used to project a mirage, of Gujarat.
The Essays in this volume, representing different perspectives, seek to look beyond this projected mirage. Gujarat throws a challenge for India and Indians as its political economy and its proponents threaten a replication of this experiment. At such a critical juncture, to understand and expose its endeavour, this volume is dedicated.
