This isn’t a book about election time rhetoric, fiery speeches, insensitive and provocative comments, controversies about freedom of expression and bans on books, films, beef and foreign artists that hit the headlines and are discussed ad nauseum in Prime Time TV debates. Instead it flags some of the burning social issues which cry out for attention but don’t interest well-known writers of by-lines or the diplomats turned columnists as they aren’t sexy enough and talking about them might not be politically correct. Yes, it offers much more to chew and digest such as continuing atrocities against the weak and the women, deep rooted caste prejudices, influence of the electronic media, irresistible lure of the Civil Services, cut off marks for admissions, Swachh Bharat, Bharat Mata ki Jai, meritocracy, enlightened education, Corruption, discovery of Ambedkar, myth of reservation, social Influence of films, Olympic medals etc . The book also offers somewhat unconventional perspective of influential personalities like Vivekananda, Pt Ravi Shankar, Narendra Modi, Rahul Gandhi, Anna Hazare, Baba Ramdev and Arvind Kejriwal.
