Look Inside

In the late 1960s, Louis Armstrong raised the American and British spirits by his immortal song ‘What a Wonderful World’. It was a wonderful world then. Galloping and trotting, the world advanced to prosperity; but it also ran into scarcity. Who or what is placing hurdles in our way, and how these are to be overcome are the questions that are explored in this book.

There exists an impregnable wall between the ruler and the ruled. Political paradigms like capitalism, communism, socialism, dictatorship and even democracy and crony-capitalism have failed to bring them closer. For the first time, this book proposes the paradigm of Revised Socialism as a solution for this impasse.

The book transcends the boundaries of traditional disciplines − politics, social sciences, economics and philosophy, to investigate:

• The manner in which international power circles, domestic political equations, financial imperialism and economic policies moderate a country’s governance
• How best the controversial issues like population, reservations, poverty, discrimination, polarization and corruption can be tackled
• The equation between real consumption of natural resources and proclaimed progress to achieve environmental sustainability
• How the modern mindset that is impinged by religions, cultures, technology media and social media simultaneously, can still be led towards professionalism
