Mitra (2001) attributes this success to a fuzzy definition of both the Indian nation as such and multiculturalism itself. The founding fathers of India, he argues, evaded a very precise definition in order to avoid narrow interpretations that would lead to the exclusion of certain groups and to the hegemonic rise of others. For India to be truly multicultural, its own self-understanding must be fuzzy enough to allow for its various groups to imagine themselves as its members. Others, such as Bhattacharyya (2003), take a more institutional view, holding that India’s multicultural success is due to the political decision to form a federation comprising different states.
