About the Book :

The duo of Gandhi and Nehru has been at the core of contemporary Indian political thought. While the ideology, morals and values of nationalism nurtured by the two remain at the centre of the major political organizations the challenges posed by the latest surge of globalization and the consequent aftermath has splintered the compactness of the traditional view. However, the ecological disaster, cultural retrogression, social alienation, human rights, growing economic disparities, and the current economic depression are the challenges which need to be observed through a distinct perspective. The thought and the vision of Gandhi and Nehru can be significantly useful in managing the affairs. While the need of local industry, swadeshi and the proper management of labour has been seriously felt the role of planned development is equally significant. The current volume presents a series of paper regarding the relevance of Gandhi and Nehru in the globalized era. Scholars from different disciplines have contributed the papers and it is hoped that the volume would be a significant addition to the field.
