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.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
