Renowned author K. C. Agrawal’s forthcoming book, “India in Chaos, Only Judiciary Can Save” lay hands on the challenges and issues India confronts today and demonstrates why the judiciary is key in bringing an accountable system of governance.
The author is an electrical engineer and senior member of IEEE, USA and has had more than 33 years of experience in different capacities – in Academics, PSUs, and Multinationals.
Greatly moved by the country's highly deplorable condition of the people and an insensitive system, Agrawal had written several books on issues India is facing on multiple fronts. His previous works include, “Shaping India of Our Dreams” and “Industrial Power Engineering and Applications Handbook” which were greatly acclaimed worldwide.
The book, written in three parts, makes a deep introspection into the various factors hampering India’s progress and attempt at comprehensive diagnosis of maladies and their total cure. It provides a unique opportunity to transform the nation by establishing Governments that are sensitive to human sufferings and capable of fulfilling the ‘basic objectives’ of the Constitution.
It is 71 years since India got independence. Though we have come a long way since independence, none of the basic objectives of the Constitution is fulfilled. About 116 crore of India’s population exists under highly impoverished and wretched conditions. The possible reasons are known: corruption at high levels, caste and class bias, rising communalism with riots and clashes between communities, terrorism, influence and power of the rich, failure of our legislatures, etc.
At the same time, one cannot ignore the role of the judiciary in enforcing the constitutional values. Today people look at the judiciary as a bulwark against executive excesses and legislative caprice. Agarwal believes that since the judiciary is the custodian, final arbiter and implementer of the Constitution it must rise to the occasion and set all wrongs right.
The book is a rare interpretation of India’s Constitution. Part I of the book tells how we have failed in these 71 years of our independence. Part 2 talks about the making of India’s Constitution and causes of our failures. In Part 3 the author provides unique and holistic development plans and road-maps to accomplish unbounded progress of the nation and happiness for our people.
The depth of the research and the ideas presented in this book explains how we can make the nation amongst the most prosperous and powerful in the world. This single volume reference source is a rarity in today's times and will be a great value for readers. It’s must read for everyone.
