About the Book:

The desire for the ?good governance? was perhaps the moving spirit behind the emergence of the state. People struggled relentlessly for the attainment of the objective all through the tortuous path of the history. Philosophers, historians and scholars have penned down this saga of the mankind, which is preserved in the scriptures, epics and immortal writings. In modern India, since independence umpteen numbers of efforts have been made to attain the elusive goal of good governance. However, we have seemingly failed in achieving the target particularly in the context of poor, the deprived and the disadvantaged section of the society which constitutes about one third of our population. To ensure a responsive and transparent governance to this section of the society in changing national and global environment, the need of periodical thinking about the concept and (institutions of governance) is desirable. In the present volume, an out come of UGC sponsored seminar, the scholars of repute have discussed different facets of the concept and its prospective impact on the immediate environment. Tracing the history of the concept and its prospective impact on the immediate environment. Tracing the history of the concept right from the ancient times, the contributors have exfolded its changing form, parameters for evaluation of a good government and from this from this point of view ascertaining the desirability of reviewing the constitution while finding out the ways and means for improving the quality of politics and public life and the removal of barriers coming in the way of sustainable human development. The contributors suggest that the goal of good governance can be achieved if the institutions, leadership, political parties and bureaucracy are committed to the ideological values, accountable to the masses, efficient and proactive is to create an enabling environment wherein the people may realize their dreams.
