About the Book :

Here is a rich haul of articles on Nehru, his multi-coloured, many dimensional personality and the planned economy of India by academicians so distinction. The collection is not a bouquet of parasitic adulations; rather it seeks to put the reader on a process of sincere self-introspection and rigorous self-criticism; the collection draws our attention to the little done and the vast undone. It offers a history of India freedom movement from a perspective that is a departure from the traditional and the official. It presents an objective assessment of our greatness and glory and our moments of achievement. But it does not cease there. It refers also to our various pitfalls, our limitations, our failures leading to the country disintegration and driving the land into the abyss of darkness. The collection aims at enthusing the readers to strive to build a new India shorn of deceit, duplicity and demagogy. That will be the best tribute to the Man with socialist commitments, the man Alive and the Man Immortal.
