ABOUT THIS BOOK

India is the world’s largest, most vibrant and stable democracy. This is largely because of Nehru’s vision and firm commitment and his careful nurturing of it in the formative years. But there is a widespread disenchantment in the country today about parliamentary democracy. This book provides comprehensive analyses of critical issues and concerns, and suggests well considered and sound reforms with a view to improving the functioning and time management of Parliament and its public image, credibility and relevance. The author argues that this will not be possible unless a stake is created for all political parties in the orderly functioning of Parliament. This perceptive, analytical and topical book is a must-read for parliamentarians, politicians, academics, researchers, media persons, opinion-makers, bureaucrats and civil society.
