About this title


Positing the quest for self-respect as democracys deepest apsiration, this essay explores how inequality and the crisis of accountability have together impeded collective action to achieve such an end. To recover the sense of moral well being and responsibility, the author suggests, is the core of the democratic challenge before India.
