The introductory chapter of this volume showed how, in the founding vision of the Indian republic, different institutional strategies were deployed to ameliorate different types of social disadvantage. This chapter describes and reviews the institutions and mechanisms provided for in the constitutional design to deal with the diversities of language, religion, caste and tribe discussed in the previous chapter. It also attempts a broad synoptic survey of the political articulation of conflicts around these cleavages, by instantiating a select number of important conflicts of this kind, and examining the way in which they have been managed by state agencies and the polity.
