About LexisNexis Cross Current Series
The Indian citizen today is witness to a baffling array of issues in public and personal life. The sources of the problems around us are many, including societal attitudes, conflicts rooted in history, the weakness of institutions, financial complexity, and economic inequality. However, what is undeniable is that law, and in particular the importance of the rule of law, are constant themes in all public discussion. This series is meant for people interested in the myriad ways in which law and legal institutions affect society and vice-versa. The series, while, clearly of interest to readers in law oriented professions, will be of equal interest to readers from other backgrounds. Through Cross Currents: Law & More we hope to document the concerns of our times and to contribute to the contemporary public debate.
About the book
This book contains a selection of articles and speeches by PP Rao a distinguished senior advocate, as well as greatly respected teacher-scholar. In it he shares his thoughts, deeply cherished beliefs, and concerns about critical facets of law, governance, and constitutional leadership in India. He reminds us that those who framed the Constitution had a vision of inclusive justice and progress for all. He suggests that the Constitution has been inadequately administered in India and throws light on a wide range of issues.
Mr. Rao forcefully argues for radical and comprehensive reforms in governmental functioning. He throws light on key unresolved contemporary challenges such as the reality of gender discrimination, corruption in the judiciary, and the system of judicial appointments. He explains how famous, but little understood cases, like Kesavananda Bharati , TMA Pai, Indra Sawhney, Sajjan Singh, Sankari Prasad, Indira Nehru Gandhi, IR Coelho have made a major impact on governance. Keenly aware of the important role of the legal profession in tackling the problems facing the country, he calls uncompromisingly for a return to high professional standards and values. A unique collection, this book will be of interest not only to members of the legal profession, the judiciary, political scientists, social activists, students and journalists, but all those who wish to understand what our Constitution stands for and the challenges that lie ahead.
