Insightful success story & journey of ECI.
22 February 2019
Story of successful journey of independent India could not be completed without mentioning the institution of ECI.This book provides overall dynamics of ECI,its functioning,working,structure,challenges etc. Through this book I realised that this constitutional body not only fulfilled its duty but went beyond the duty to preserve democracy in India.This book will rightly convince you the importance of ECI for India.This book presents contributions from various activists,politicians,media personalities,bollywood actors,acamedicians etc. who have observed and monitored various elections in India.Chapter on brief history of ECI.Nice essay on why does india vote with contribution from mukulika banerjee is very impressive.It presents picture on why voting is not only exercise of political right but also influences social equality.Ornit shani and milan vaishnav discusses about functioning of ECI and abuse of money power in elections and challenges faced by ECI because of this.Chapter on how TN Sheshan strenthened position of ECI with his leadership and working.One could understand with help of this book how ECI not only strenthened Indian democracy but also democracy in other parts eg nepal,bhutan etc.Some chapter discusses about impact of civil society,women,bollywood etc in elecfion process.Last chapter gives idea about whether India could go for public funding for elections or not.For me this book opened my eyes and made me realise to salute the efforts of ECI in fulfilling aspirations of millions of indians by giving us free and fair elections .
