The RSS: Roadmaps for the 21st Century (HB)

Sunil Ambekar is a high-ranking pracharak and the national organizing secretary of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), a responsibility he has held since 2003. A swayamsevak since his childhood days, he pursued the study of sciences and is a master’s in zoology. Ambekar rose through the ranks, from organizing secretary of ABVP in the Vidharbha region to national secretary, regional organizing secretary (West), joint national organizing secretary and onto his current position. His unique initiatives for educational sector reforms, making it inclusive, nationalist and pro-student, and his agitations for affordability, employability, social justice and quality education earned him the respect and gratitude of his peers, seniors, and juniors. At the invitation of the China Association for International Friendly Contact (CAIFC) under the International Department of the Communist Party of China, he was part of a three-member delegation to China. He was also an international observer for the 2018 presidential elections in Russia.

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) continues to make headlines, despite several books tracing its journey. Curiosity about the functioning of the RSS has increased phenomenally as swayamsevaks have risen to top positions in government and the Sangh’s core ideas of Hindu Rashtra and Ekatmata have become the mainstream lexicon of our social and political space.
So, what is the RSS’s imagination for India? If India becomes a Hindu Rashtra, what will be the place of Muslims and other faiths in it? How big is the RSS project of history writing? Will Hindutva override caste politics? And what is the RSS view of social issues pertaining to the changing nature of family, the rights of people with different sexual orientations and the third gender?
These contentious questions are just a few of the myriad political and social issues that Sunil Ambekar, a high-ranking pracharak, analyses in his book, The RSS: Roadmaps for the 21st Century.
Displaying a deep understanding of facts, clarity of thought and attention to detail, Ambekar presents a blend of past milestones, present achievements, and future ideas. Having worked at the heart of the Shakha system, he also highlights the internal working of the Sangh—the decisionmaking process, the effective coordination system and means of expansion.
