Commissions and Omissions by Indian Presidents and their conflicts with the Prime Ministers under the Constitution (2 Volumes)
Commissions and Omissions by Indian Presidents and their conflicts with the Prime Ministers under the Constitution (2 Volumes)
Description
From the Jacket

It is the general impression of the people that the President of India is merely a rubber stamp; he is powerless, and is always bound by the advice of the Cabinet. But it is not so. Dr. Rajendra Prasad the first President of India had an encounter with the First Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, and spelled out the power of the President under the Constitution.

The present work is a unique effort successfully made by the author to adequately expose the in depth functioning of the Presidents and the Prime Ministers. There have been many occasions during the tenure of certain Presidents when differences on matters of grave public importance arose, and it was established that the President was not a glorified cipher or a mere 'rubber stamp'. The differences however were resolved constitutionally. But unfortunately there had been some occasions when the Presidents chose to surrender to the authoritarian command of the Prime Ministers in violation of the letter and spirit of the Constitution.

The sensational revelations on Constitutional conflicts between the Presidents and the Prime Ministers are rare pieces in the Indian history. The present work throws a flood of light on such encounters of which the general public is completely unaware. The book is, thus exciting, stimulating and most informative. A must for every shelf.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
