Oureconomic health is fragile, crime and corruption have become bywords of life, immorality and unethicalityare rampant in every aspect of societal living. Add to this neighbours such as Pakistan and China, wholooking for the merest crack through which to breach our defences-and we have a country that isteetering on the verge of a cataclysmic collapse. Yet, the greater part of the Indian electorate remainsignorant about these evils, and it is in this ignoble situation that we are heading into elections, aboutto vote into power leaders who can either make or break us.And so, in India Shining and Sinking, patriot, thinker and social commentator S.K. Shah takes onthe daunting task of informing the Indian citizen about the most crucial developmental and societalchallenges we face today. Through essays on a diverse range of subjects-ranging from politics andgovernance to poverty, crime and morality-Shah sounds a clarion call of awareness for the masses.Passionately argued, this timely book brings to the fore all that we are plagued by today and all thatwe must struggle to overcome to become a true and functional democracy.
