About The Book

Democracy and Good Governance reminds us of the true meaning of good governance and what democracy entails. Subhash Kashyap details practices and protocols followed in the Indian Parliament and the deviations and aberrant behaviours of legislatures, noting what their actual duties are and ought to be. The author also brings out in a series of biographical sketches his encounters with some remarkable parliamentarians during his long tenure in the Parliament Secretariat.

His essays on value-based education, included in his book, encourage the nurturing of democratic values that are syncretic with India’s Constitution enshrined tenets of equality, secularism and life of dignity for all its citizens. This book is a guiding light for all students of democracy, constitution and governance modules.
