By: Godbole, Madhav.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: New Delhi Konark Publishers 2020Description: xiii, 322 p.ISBN: 9788194201823.Subject(s): Policymakers | Lawmakers | Youth - Civil society leadersDDC classification: 320 Summary: Politicisation and communalization of every issue has become the bane of public life in India. In such an environment, writing fearlessly, objectively and apolitically is neither easy nor common, but this is precisely what the author has done in his incisive commentaries on some of the burning issues of the day. This collection of 37 select essays, written between 2006 and 2018, brings out some of the prime concerns facing India. As for the solutions, the wheel does not need to be reinvented. What is required is the political and administrative will to put the wheel in motion. The writings bring into focus the importance of safeguarding secularism if India is to remain at peace with herself; strengthening and empowering institutions for the sustenance of democracy; and meeting the menacing challenges to the rule of law in the country. Good governance must be made a fundamental right of every citizen. In the increasingly globalised and fiercely competitive world, India cannot afford to be caught off guard on any front. The book will be of interest to policymakers, officials, lawmakers, civil service aspirants, NGOs, corporates, media, youth and civil society leaders. https://konarkpublishers.com/books/956
