This collection of essays effectively reflects the ongoing debate around the ideas of syncretism, synthesis, and pluralism in South Asia today. It discusses various aspects of syncretism in India while problematizing the very concept of syncretism. The essays pose a number of pertinent and relevant questions, even as they focus on various individuals, moments, and encounters in Indian history. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of medieval and modern Indian history as well as lay readers interested in the question of Indian pluralism as reflected in its history.

"The book is essential reading for anyone interested in the history of Islam in modern India and for anyone working on modern India who is interested in this important question of 'living together separately'." --Times Higher Education Supplement
