If the future is full of hope it is largely because of Soviet Russia.

A young man who isn't a socialist hasn't got a heart;
an old man who is a socialist hasn't got a head.
—David Lloyd George, the British PM in 1920

This permit-licence-raj is not a bee in my bonnet but a great boa-constrictor that has coiled itself around the economy.
—Rajaji in Swarajya of 15.1.1966

It has been said that the road to hell is often paved with best intentions, and despite the probable best intentions, ‘The Nehruvian Era, 1947–64’ unfortunately laid the firm foundations of India’s misery. The same are detailed in this book.

This is the second part of the two-part book on the Nehruvian era (1947–64). First part covered Kashmir botch-up, Tibet, India-China War, Hyderabad, Foreign Policy, and External Security. This part covers the rest—Economic Policies; Internal Policies; “Secularism”; Mental & Cultural Slavery; Dictatorial, Feudal & ‘Dynacratic’ Tendencies, etc.— followed by thorough evaluation of Nehru and the Nehruvian era.
