My results shows that the indian identity is changing and developing over time but the main characteristics still remains the same. I have noticed that Druckmans three dimensions all are important for the negotiability of identity, which was my purpose. Reeds ideas about fastening and unfastening identity complete Druckmans dimensions and therefore also my analyzis. (Less)
