We called Winston Churchill a racist when he asserted, “A day would come when even air and water would be taxed in India,” then followed numerous squabbles that are attributed to the money and power seekers. We remain paying taxes even for our basic needs proving Churchill’s statement. And no more he remains a racist to this generation that encounters endless economic problems, he sounded right. Whom are we going to blame? The politicians or ourselves who elected them? What would we do if we represent people in the legislatures? What is democracy by the way, that struggles in the hands of those who misuse it and those who are unaware of it? This book is a journey to find answer for these intriguing questions that traces the nation’s voyage since 1947 with reference to democratic statesmanship embellished in Winston Churchill’s Thoughts and Adventures and Khushwant Singh’s The End of India. The book discusses the problems of a common man and his duties as a democrat.
