India became independent in the year 1947. Our independencewas vitiated by partition. Pakistan was created. Creation of Pakistanwas neither an accident nor a simple, mutually agreed division. Pakistanwas founded on religious basis. Since the idea of Pakistan was mooted, parties fighting for freedom, except Muslim League, had opposed it.Mahatma Gandhi himself was so against the division of the countryon religious grounds that he said, it can be done only on my dead body. Since its creation, Pakistan has waged covert or overt war onour country.It is more than sixty years now. Citizens of any country expectthat their government would protect them. The situation in India is so precarious that we are only safe between two terrorist attacks. Everysuch attack is blamed on Pakistan ; its conception, planning andexecution is controlled and directed by ISI. Attacks with suchconsistency and on such scale could not have been carried out withoutthe support of local elements. Mumbai witnessed a massive attack inthe year 1993. Now it is 2009 and yet the, master minds abscondingand those who are arrested have not been brought to book andadequately punished. Such continues to be the case with all other incidents. Even those who assisted the attack on our parliament andconvicted by our Supreme Court are not punished yet. After everyterror attack our political leaders and government exhort people to becalm, exercise self control and maintain communal harmony, but tono avail.60 years of independence are not without “ achievements”!We have the highest number of criminals in our law making bodies-assemblies and parliament now. Corruption is so rampant that no wordin the dictionary will be adequate to describe and condemn it. In our  public life, socio-cultural space, we are being led by people who take pride in breaking age-old principles of morality and decency. Needlessto say that our film industry, whose heroes and heroines are role modelsfor our youth, is at the forefront of this ignoble endeavor! A glaringexample of this is Sanjay Dutt, a convict in the Mumbai Serial Blastsof 1993 and who in his life has committed every sin that Gandhiji hadcondemned. It is a great irony that he preaches and we listed toGandhian principles from him. Now, he has been offered candidaturefor a seat in Parliament. Law will take its own course! But the unholyhest with which we are bestowing legitimacy and respectability onconvicts and criminals is a disgrace to any civilized society.

is not an isolated example. Can a country survive with such putrid public life?Pakistan may be our enemy, but it is not to be held responsiblefor such deterioration of our society. If somebody is to be heldresponsible, it is our political leaders since 1947. It is they who havelegitimized criminalization of politics for electoral gains. All the ink spilled to describe this state of affairs will be futile.Vidya Prasarak Mandal, an educational institution, offeringtraditional courses to the students has started about a year back aDefense and Strategic Study Department. A retired Intelligence Officer, NT Ravindran, heads this department. This book is the product of hisceaseless efforts and commitment to the nation.If the contents of this book do not disturb you, it will be atragedy. That also will confirm that our prime enemy is not Pakistan but our inaction and failure to respond to the attacks on our decency,dignity and culture. The only civilized response we can muster isthrough our democratic apparatus. Enlightened citizens alone can makeresponsible democracy possible. It is no more a choice of this or that political party now. If we choose to elect parties that give tickets tocriminals and corrupt individuals, soon we may lose the very spirit of democracy. This is a country of 100 crores people and in every partydynastic rule prevails.This book should at least inspire you to introspect and act to preserve and respect honest and selfless individuals and institutions inthe country. It will also caution you against all those voluntaryorganizations which, under the pretext of human rights, environment,minority rights etc., are trying to oppose every developmental activityand weaken our nation from within. This book has unmasked all suchindividuals and institutions who are otherwise enjoying respectabilityand government patronage.I am sure the book will serve its purpose i.e. to awaken youfrom slumber of inaction.
