Book synopsis/description:

Since Independence in 1947, India has faced a multitude of issues connected with economic growth, social change and political development. Political and social thinkers and leaders in the country have spoken out their views and thoughts on many occasions over these years touching upon these subjects. How has the language of political communication and public discourse in the choice of phrase and idiom changed over these 60-odd years and why that is what this work has attempted to unravel. Relying on contemporary newspaper reports quoting these leaders that add an immediacy to the remarks - from Jawaharlal Nehru in 1947 through Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi and P.V. Narasimha Rao to Atal Bihari Vajpayee to Dr. Manmohan Singh in 2010, this gives a ring-side view of these personalities, and how they reacted to the various national issues and events through their remarks. Other related articles, studies and books have given valuable inputs in a search for insights into these political thoughts and trends. These provide considerable food for thought as much to the general reader as to academics.
