Quick Overview

The present book - Strokes on Law and Democracy in India: An Eye Witness, is a unique attempt by the author. It deals with all facets of the post independence era of the country. The author has a versatile personality. He has been closely associated with two Prime Ministers; he has been in legal profession for more than forty years and has also been associated with academic institutions as a law teacher.

He opposed the Emergency and remained under detention in Tihar Jail under MISA for about 19 months. He has thus been able to focus almost every incident in the book which he had practically seen and observed in the post independence era of the country. He has been able to keenly observe the functioning of the executive, legislature and the judiciary in its true colour.

The book is divided into nine parts.

Part I of the book contains, His Family Tree, The Partition of the Country, Role of Destiny and the beginning of his Career. Parts II and III of the book contain the Declaration of Emergency, Midnight Arrests, Censorship of the Press and Champions of the Emergency. Parts IV, V and VI of the book contain Chapters on Judicial Discipline and Accountability, Questionable Conduct of the Judges of the Supreme Court and the High Court, Outbursts of some public spirited persons and voices against Emergency. Part VII of the book contains the visits of the author in various places in India and abroad, and his meeting with the President of India on the question of abolition of death penalty and his power of pardon, under the Constitution. Part VIII of the book contains author`s ink flow and the book reviews published in various journals and magazines. The last part of the book contains annexures in the shape of letters and documents which have their own significance and importance.
