About the Book

Seventy-five years after having achieved independence there are still millions of Indians who live, eat, beg, work, romance, marry, produce children, fall sick, and die without a shelter and without any inkling of where the next meal is going to come from. People are losing faith in the judiciary and the police are mere pawns, handcuffed by politicians and bureaucrats. Where did we go wrong? Would India have been a different country if it had a Presidential form of government rather than a Parliamentary one? Why was the Presidential form of government not debated in the Constituent Assembly in right earnestness? Was it because of a lack of understanding or sheer indifference or just an attempt to cater to vested interests? The authors, as conscientious citizens, have tried to look at these issues in an unbiased and objective manner. The uniqueness of this book lies not in the relevance of the issues but the practical solutions being offered. The title Diminishing India is meant to be a wake-up call and not an expression of doom or frustration.
