Indians In Mirror View of a Common Man: Politics, Governance, and Religious Identity

Author Name: Laljee Verma | Format: Paperback | Genre : History & Politics | Other Details

Indian governance has lacked in public oriented administration. Politicians, and the administrators seem to have been working in self-interest rather for public. National interest appears the last priority. Bureaucratic attitude has resulted in deficient result oriented development in almost all fields, such as polity, scientific development, and healthcare delivery. Adoption of Westminster democracy has resulted in undue concentration powers in the hands of elected representatives with lack of ‘checks and balance’.

Indic religions and culture may have a lot to give to the world. A chapter is devoted to discussion on religion, and what India could contribute to the world. The world recognises India as the spiritual hub, and looks forward to its contribution.

The book is a cross sectional discussion on different aspects of governance, and India’s religious identity from the standpoint of a common man or woman. Looking at Indian democracy and policy one wonders if there is a conflict of interest between those who govern and those who are governed, the public!
