India is the largest functioning democracy in the world. After centuries of foreign rule and exploitation, we became one amongst the poorest countries in the world when we achieved independence. We have successfully managed to overcome the basic problems of survival and feeding the vast population of our country, but on the other hand, we still have the largest number of poor and illiterates in the world. We have achieved remarkable economic success and have emerged as one of the fastest-growing and largest economies in the world, but we are amongst the most unequal societies in the world with the share of the bottom half of the population in the nation's total income being only 14.70 % – the lowest in the world.
The most dismal aspect of our functioning as a nation is that we have one of the most inefficient and corrupt governance systems in the world and all the critical problems faced by our country are a direct result of this failure. This book puts forward a proposition that the malaise of corruption and misgovernance can be fully cured and removed, for there is a set of causes at the root of this problem and they need to be carefully identified and removed.
