This is a collection of editorials in reputed news papers; enjoying wide readership. They cover a wide compass of 44 years’ of experience, starting with the cold hands of emergency in 1975 to the gusto of authoritarianism that wafts the air at present. The overwhelming thrust of the edits has been to celebrate the spirit of liberal democracy in all its hues. With the author’s familiarization with a cross section of disciplines, economics, law and politics, it’s an intellectual potpourri; that is likely to be relished by a wide cross section of readers.
