Views of Dr. Kundan Singh Dhillon
Extract from the Selected Comments about the small book:
Why India is Devoid of Rule of Law.
Annexure 1: Comments: I
"Why India is devoid of Rule of Law?", S. Balbir Singh Sooch
has made a detailed differential diagnosis of the malady which
is eating away the vitals of Indian society. Issues raised in
this article are thought provoking and predictions for future,
along with remedies to be undertaken if someone be interested
to eliminate these evils. Certainly the dragons of inequality
and exploitation go hand in hand. Unless the menace of
inequality is mended (though there seems to be little chance
for it) tranquility in this society cannot be expected.
healthy society, three things, namely, truthfulness,
contentment and thoughtfulness are vital but all the three
have taken to wings. So there is a race to amass wealth (Laxmi)
by hook or crook. Even the most rich are not content with what
they have. Unhealthy competition to amass wealth and property
at any cost has knocked out the brains of the common citizens.
Criminalization of politics has played a vital role for the
present state of sagging standards in all spheres of life.
This article of S. Sooch is a timely warning for the well
wishers of this society (if there be any) and something needs
to be done right away.
