Corruption has always been at the centre stage of the Indian economy and polity. In fact, corruption has become a monster in way of India’s socio-economic progress. Various laws, social and political campaigns since independence have failed to curb the menace.

He gives a clarion call that India needs a huge churning of thoughts towards the subject matter of corruption, which requires its solution in terms of weeding it out from the society and that has been described in this book intelligently.
