Book Description:India has lived over sixty years of its independence, but it still seems to be floating rudderless. It does not know what to accept and what to discard. The well known Astrophysicist and science writer Jayant V. Narlikar provides in this significant work well thought out ideas in various life and work-areas for us to take up in right earnest and do the needful to build up the nation as well as our own lives. He is a rare Indian who writes science fiction which is closer to the truth. A few of his ideas have already come true. Like the social problems created by the possibility of knowing the sex of the child while in the womb which he wrote up in a story in the 1970s.
