A Tribune Debate

India has achieved a lot in the 60 years since Independence and now it is poised for playing a bigger role in the 21st century. But these 60 years have also seen many shortcomings and failures.

The Constitution itself is under strain; Parliament, the executive, the judiciary, political parties and other institutions engaged in the governance of the country of over a billion people are not functioning as they ought to. While India’s ambitions have soared high, the quality of democracy has sadly declined. Coherent policies that can take India into a different league are yet to be evolved.

To mark the 60 years of Independence, The Tribune is coming out with a special supplement India at Sixty on the Independence Day. It will carry articles by eminent writers and thinkers reflecting on some of the issues requiring national attention. The idea is a part of The Tribune’s effort to make the people think about these issues and policies the country needs at this juncture.

Among the eminent writers who are participating in the debate are: Fali S. Nariman, Maharajakrishna Rasgotra, Bhanu Pratap Mehta, T N Ninan, B G Verghese, N N Vohra, Dipankar Gupta, Balveer Arora, S D Muni, Subhash C Kashyap, M R Srinivasan and Pushpa M Bhargava.

The special supplement India at Sixty will be available along with The Tribune on Wednesday, August 15, 2007.
