Product Description

India in the World: Trials of the Republic is a compilation of Kanti Bajpai's widely read monthly column in The Times of India. The columns deal with four key areas of national life – foreign policy, social policy, politics, and the ideas of India. They span the last four years of the UPA government of Manmohan Singh and the first 30 months of the BJP-led NDA government under Narendra Modi. Bajpai is a committed liberal. Not surprisingly, his writings are often indignant and hard-hitting. His aim is to shake the middle class out of its complacency and its unwillingness to admit that India is in a precarious condition, politically, economically, and socially.
Bajpai does not let us forget that India is one of the poorest countries on earth (about one-third of the world’s poor are Indians) and that as a rising power it has failed to deliver security, welfare, and democracy to its people. Indeed, as he tries to show, in several respects India’s immediate neighbours – and other poorer countries in various parts of Asia and Africa – are faring better. Kanti Bajpai tells us bluntly where India stands and insists we cannot simply blame our political leaders and officials. As citizens, we have a responsibility to see the trials of the Republic for what they are and to think more earnestly about what we can do to build a better society. A must-read for anyone who is invested in the future of India.
