The articles in this volume reflect the ethos and aims of public administration as visualised by the founding fathers of free India and to what extent various social political and economic developments have realised their hopes and expectations. Has public administration become quite the reverse of what was fondly visualised. Does it lack sensitivity to the sufferings of the deprived masses and spirit of self less public service. Do people still have some choice or are they destined to live with rampant corruption. Readers may find answers to such and other vexed questions from among the writing of some promi.
