What is the best book by Rajiv Malhotra and why?

I consider Breaking India as his magnum opus.

Reasons:

His other books like ‘Indra's net', ‘Invading the Sacred' and ‘Being Different' are equally good in original research, but they were topics touched upon by other authors in the past. Breaking India is a novel books in a sense that it opens up a global arena where superpowers nations and superpower religions compete with each other for global dominance, which although happens right under our nose but we seldom take note of mostly because no one talks about it.

Breaking India holds the premise that India as a nation which survived 60 odd years of it becoming a nation state after independence from Britain survived even after repeated attempts at compromising the sovereignty of the nation and her people. But for how long?

The book builds upon a series of threats from different external and internal agents like communism, Abrahamic religious fanaticism and their quest for global domination, Dalit issue and it's nexus with Christian lobby groups and also Dravidian separatism. Malhotra ties up a grim picture of macabre realpolitik around these seemingly separate and misrelated ideas which is not really far from truth.

This is a book which every civil servant and public administrator needs to read to understand who are they dealing with and what are the consequences of their action or inaction. But unfortunately, I too hold the same distrust for civil servants (most notably foreign service officers) as does Malhotra.
