Product Details

Bhārat: India 2.0 is a brilliant vision for the nation by one of India's most prominent scientists. Through a meticulous analysis of the proceedings of the Constituent Assembly, Prof. Desiraju demonstrates the limitations of the Westminster model of governance for a country that has nurtured the longest extant human civilization. Specifically, the Indian Constitution of 1950, with its subsequent amendments, has many fault lines related to federalism, secularism and caste-based reservations that will lead to problems in the future. Going beyond conventional analyses, Desiraju argues for changes that acknowledge the civilizational aspects of a deeply religious country and proposes a unique solution to this problem. — Padma Shri Subhash Kak (Scientist, Indologist, Vedic Scholar)
