British during their rule over India pillaged it and took away entire wealth and art pieces of immense valve to Britain. On getting independence, India adopted parliamentary system of governance, based on Westminster model, which without proper reforms is not suiting to Indian conditions and is further seemingly dividing us. Rather than narrowing down our diversities, it is further widening the same which is against the unity of the country. Democracy is our strength but its four basic pillars of stability and continuity of the government, its accountability, responsibility and transparency are not being secured.
The book is an attempt to analyse the effects of British ‘Divide and Rule’ Policy on us all and specially our armed forces.
