    Description

    The State Of The Nation by Fali S. Nariman is a meticulous and analytical account of the present scenario of the nation from a constitutional perspective.

    Summary Of The Book

    This engaging book by Nariman focuses on the many common problems of the executive, legislature, and the judiciary. The book highlights the high levels of corruption and the many consequences that the common man has to face due to it. In his daring book, Nariman attacks the various levels including the judicial system. The book highlights the incompetency and failures of the elected representatives.

    Divided into six parts, the book also focuses on pertinent problems like India's concept of unity in diversity, higher judiciary and general polity, and federalism and the higher judiciary. The State Of The Nation highlights the demerits of the reservation system, the actual role of the Constitution, and the merits and demerits of the constitutional system over the years.

    Who will judge the judges? How are the judges appointed? Who recommends and selects them? Why are judgements delayed or remain undelivered? Nariman, in this engaging account, seeks to find the answers to many such disturbing questions.

    The author also reveals the problems of the Indian government. He points out how we have failed in the implementation of the directive principles of the state policy, which are fundamental to the right governance of India. Nariman also focuses on the law makers and the luxury that they have misused and over-indulged in.

    In the book, The State Of The Nation, Fali S. Nariman also highlights the increasing divide between the poor and the rich. He also discusses why neglecting the poor and marginalised sector is a great threat to the country. The State Of The Nation was published in 2013.

    An exemplary perspective of things

    An excellent read - its like borrowing perspective of a erudite man.
    Very well researched commentary building up to its critical mass steadily never losing sight of the running commentary progression on the current "state"of affairs.
    It is content heavy(with equally vibrant 'references' approx 20% of the volume!). It deals with topic like corruption, the coalesce of states into a nation, strength/falling of national leaders etc. Few topics but thoroughly dealt with.
    A measured pace of narra...

    Good book but...

    The State Of Nations isn't totally related to a federal nation state.
    But the book gives a good retrospect of our judicial system.

    Touches your heart, Piques your mind!

    I had heard Mr Nariman on TV, was impressed by his insight and I immediately ordered this book off flipkart. Boy! I was not disappointed at all. I am an applied math Ph.D student and I was worried originally whether I would follow the judicial jargons, the court cases and the technical terminologies. Now that I have read half of the book, I am very happy I picked it up. The book is written in a very simple language and he does not beat around the bush.

    He explains what the country stood for ...

    Lucid and informative

    The book is easy read and understand; the author has consciously attempted to avoid legal jargons and the arguments are pretty simple and straight and not legalistic. The work takes us through land marks judgments and event in the history of our constitution.

    A must read

    Mr. Nariman has utilized his vast experience here to dwell upon the state of our nation. He has made a dispassionate assessment of the various issues confronting the nation.It is an essential reading for someone to know the thought processes of the a leading legal constitutional luminary and his frank analysis of his own actions.
