Actually, HInduvta per se is esoteric. However, there is no doubt, that when footloose cannons like Togadia, Singal and some wild elements of the RSS go on their gossamer wings of their self interpreted creativity bordering on scaremongering, Hinduvta takes a very onerous meaning. The same way as the Owassis of the Muslim world creates the scare psychosis. Notwithstanding these footloose cannons of either side Indian secularism has developed deep roots and cannot be shaken. Already the continuing attempt of both the Congress Party & now of the BJP to what the DMK terms as 'imposing Hindi and making others second class' has created a furore and exploitation of this by Political Parties for selfish gains has created a storm in a teacup. The issue has been deliberately muddied. What has been lost in the din and the smoke and mirror is that fact that while none minds learning Hindi as the link language, English should also be used for communication since notwithstanding nationalistic tendencies, it is an international ticket to keep the homestead fires warm. Omar Obdullah was discomfited and thought it was an imposition to make India one in culture, language and oddly, even religion! Thus, in all this din and Govt action therein, it indicates that the federalism and secularism remains the undying ember that engines India. Interestingly, a large majority of Indians, as one heard on TV, including leaders who should know better, Hindi is not the National Language as they thought it is. It is merely the Official Language. This misconception is another reason why people get het up & fear carazed whenever the issue of Hindi is brought in.
