Description

An incisive look at the men and events that shaped the country in the post-independence era, and identifies the areas where self-interest of the privileged few has taken precedence over the welfare of the millions.

The author pinpoints the highly disturbing causative factors underlying the malady that today afflicts the nation, and goes on to suggest measures, which if taken seriously, may help alleviate the people's privations and hardship. The ubiquitous phenomenon of corruption, indiscipline and deteriorating work culture, excessive interference by political masters in administration and near-absence of social activism by the intelligentsia are among the factors which have favored incompetent men to come to power and to rule the country.

He argues that the intelligentsia can, no longer, afford to run away from the hustings which determine the leadership in a democracy.
