India an example of a State nation- 

  • State-nation where ‘nations’ -be they ethnic, religious, linguistic or indigenous identities-coexist peacefully and cooperatively in a single state polity. 
  • Indian state has ruled out both assimilationist and integrationist model from the very beginning after independence. 
  • The constitution declares India as a secular state but religion language and other factors are not banished from the public sphere. Citizens are given the institutional and political space to identify with both their country and their cultural identities. 
  • Thus a successful strategy is to build state-nations that accommodate diversity constructively.
