About The Book:- A Gigantic Country Like India With A Mammoth Population, Fast Going Downhill, Should Be A Matter Of International Concern. For The First Time After Independence, The Country Has Reached A Zero Growth Rate. There Have Been Such An All-Round Deterioration-Ecomomic, Social, Cultural, Political, Educational And Even Moral-That This Country With A So-Called "Glorious Cultural Heritage" Is Now Being Called The 'sick Man Of Asia'. While The Plight Of The Untouchables And Tribals, Forming One-Third Of The Country's Population, And The "Other Backward Classes" Has Dipped To Rock Bottom, The Other 10% Of The Elitist Population Is Enjoying Unprecedented Prosperity Monopolising The Whole Gamut Of Day-To-Dayactivity. And Yet The Whole Mass Of Humanity In This Subcontinent Has Shown No Sign Of Unrest-Let Alone A Desire To Better Its Lot. The Country Looks A Picture Of Contentment And Perfect Peace. This Is The Wonder Of All Wonders At A Time When Country After Country Is Getting Liberated Indramatic Sequence., About The Author:- V.
