Chanakya’s New Manifesto to Resolve the Crisis within India, by Pavan K. Varma, attempts to figure out what one of classical India’s greatest thinkers and strategists would do if confronted with the numerous crises that plague today’s India.
Summary of the Book
This book is both a call to action as well as an insightful account of the issues that India is facing today. The author asserts that there is a practical and thorough plan, based on the seminal work of Chanakya, the Arthashastra, to bring about transformation in the five key areas that need immediate attention – governance, democracy, corruption, security, and the creation of an inclusive society. Whether it is setting up the groundwork for a self-governing and active Lokpal or effectively weeding out the corrupt politicians, the answers this book recommends, are practical and well within the constitutional structure.

Wish our Politicians read thisThis is really something our Politicians should read. I know it will be hard (very very hard) for them to digest and implement (even 5%) but still I would want them to read ... just to realise what a mess they have created.

Interesting Book on Current IndiaReading a non-fiction at times boring as lots of description, analysis with technical terms and jargon. I found this book interesting.

Does Hinduism Connive at CorruptionPavan Varma comes up with an absurd theory which seeks to stereotype the Hindu religion and millions of its followers as morally loose and ‘corruption friendly.’

Insightful readWhile buying this, I first felt that the author is just riding on brand "Chanakya" to sell this. But within the first few pages you will realize that it not only pin points the present day problems for India, but also provides a comprehensive and realistic agenda on how to bring about change.
