About the Book:
Our constitution, devised between 1946 -1949 for a highly feudal country of 350M people - illiterate (84%), desperately poor (75%) and hurting (a bloody partition of two important British Provinces), has served very well to entrench democratic values in the decades thereafter.
The emerging middle classes succeeded in ‘compelling and bending’ the polity (through 120+ amendments) to create self-serving structures leaving a vast majority of our compatriots ‘out in the cold’, nay, heat and dust of tropical Bharat.
A ‘modified monarchy’, that now masquerades as “Democracy”- where The Executive has come to overpower all other organs of the state, needs to be “Factory Reset” by restoring the ‘separation of powers’ and ‘checks and balance’.
The “Factory Resets” aims to re-create the Governance play fields, that will allow very capable people manning it to creatively solve the issues confronting us and ensure a ‘pleasant journey of life’ for all of us. The implementation prescriptions are duly computed for feasibility; costs and other resources.
About the Author:
An alumnus of IIT Kharagpur and IIM Ahmedabad, Vinod Kumar Dhall has worked in managerial positions in many companies - Engineering Companies, Tea Plantations, an IT major (now), Auto Ancillaries, and a Farm Equipment & Engineering conglomerate. He worked as a CXO with a prominent business group in East Africa with interests in FMCG, Engineering, Banking & Insurance, Reality & Construction, Plantations & Mining and Logistics.
Vaanprastha years started in 2015; a few events in our public life threw up a challenge to work on transforming a much larger and even humongous “Governance System” - by Resetting the Structures Systems Processes and incentives, of all organs of the State and Media - the fourth pillar. And above all The Democratic Citizen.
It has taken seven and half long years and surely this work will help us realise the ‘constitutional ideals’ stated so well in the Preamble to the Constitution, implying a pleasant life-journey for ALL Indians (humanity).
