Dr N. Bhaskara Rao is uniquely qualified to write this book. For over 60 years, he has been fascinated with elections at different levels from village panchayat to Parliament and studying the process of Parliamentary democracy. His insights on poll campaigns are based on his involvement with 17 general elections in different capacities, mostly as a researcher.
He was in the panel of 20 eminent persons with whom the then Lok Sabha Speaker, Somnath Chatterjee, organised a Speaker’s Roundtable (2008). With postgraduate degrees from two Indian and two US universities, Dr Rao has analysed and written extensively on public policies and poll politics.
He has founded half a dozen research institutes that have gone on to earn national repute. He is credited for reviving social audit in public services (1995-2007).
Written by veteran public policy analyst Dr N. Bhaskara Rao, The Green Puzzle tells the story of how India has approached environmental issues that affect our daily lives and offers a ray of light while reminding the world of the challenges and opportunities that we face.
Rejuvenating the Republic examines the very idea of the Republic, the various perceptions about it and the ambiguities and dilemmas associated with it. The book not only identifies the problem areas but also suggests much-needed initiatives in the form of ‘transformational interventions’.
Chronicles of a village boy in New Delhi is a first person account of the transition that most youth are experiencing today: from one age to another, one place to another and one value system to another. The book elucidates what factors influence that process and unleash the potential in individuals (even those without a godfather!), with thoughts that inspire and direct destinies.
