Idea's of India

As I have said before there are three competing idea's of India - Gandhi, Golwalkar and Ambedkar. We experienced Gandhi's idea of India all these years and are now experiencing Golwalkar's idea of India. All this while, Ambedkar's idea of India (substantially) lie in written but unimplemented form. Our actions are shaped by our views  about the desired future. Our  views of the desired future are shaped by the social and cultural messaging that we are exposed to. True free choice of our common future would involve systematically discussing and debating the alternative idea's of India and choosing the one we all feel comfortable with.

So what do you understand as the similarities and differences between the three ideas of India. What kind of India do we want?
