It was this very nationalism that Pandit Nehru so vividly expressed in the book 'Discovery of India', he wrote - 'I am convinced that nationalism can only come out of the ideological fusion of Hindu, Muslims, Sikhs and other groups in India' - Indian nationalism emanated from universalism, we see the whole world as one family... We believe in collective conscience for centuries... For us, democracy isn't a gift but a sacred trust. The Indian Constitution isn't an instrument for administration but a Magna-Carta for social transformation: Our nationalism flows from our Constitution and this gives us the ability to self-correct ourselves,
