In one sense, the history of Ayodhya is a microcosm of the history of the north Indian heartland. In another sense, it is a history of the evolution of Vaishnavism in the Hindu consciousness. In a third sense, it stands for the formation and propagation of an aggressive Hindu cultural and religious consciousness that can be traced all the way back to the advent of the East India Company as a military power in north India in the eighteenth century. Over the last two decades or so, a singular fixation on corruption and misgovernance has cloaked the rise of communalism and majoritarianism. In India today, secularism and socialism have become contemptible ideas that many liberals have stopped defending. In this sense Ayodhya has come to stand for ground zero in the battle between secularism and religious fundamentalism in India. One city, many histories.
