Dr. Kashyap's Indian Constitution: Conflicts and Controversies is a book on Indian politics and reveals the issues which came to light during the framing of the constitution of the largest democracy of the world.
Summary of the Book
Written to address the multi-faceted views and opinions on Indian constitutional theory, this book brings to light some of the controversies which surrounded the earliest situations involving the constitution. Speaking from his large experience as the Lok Sabha Secretary-General, Dr. Kashyap explains how the Constitution of India has survived all the pressures and strains of regular assaults against it. The constant strain has emboldened the constitution, he says, and it proves that it is a staunch example of democracy at work. The constitution hasn't been the mere effort of one man but a continually changing result of over 60 years of dedicated work by hundreds of people.
