This book presents a collection of articles, from some of the finest thinkers, which throws light on what we need to do to restore values in all walks of life.
This volume is a wake-up call to Indians to shape their country as an ethical nation. The articles in the compilation have been written by some of the most eminent thinkers and leaders of India, in various fields, all of whom are known for their commitment to living and working with integrity. It addresses the reasons for the absence of honest, ethical and transparent dealings in all sections of the society, including the legislative, executive and judicial branches of the government.
The articles present a credible and practical set of ideas and approaches to raise standards of integrity, ethical behaviour and governance in the institutions of our country. Some of the articles were presented at a two-day conclave organized by the Foundation of Restoration of National Values in New Delhi in November 2008. The compendium not only captures the essence of the conclave, but goes beyond it by providing a roadmap for initiatives that can be taken at the individual and collective levels to transform India into an upright nation – free from corruption, deception and opaqueness in decision making.
