New Delhi - Arab Today

Author M.B. Lal was shocked to see a government-sanctioned housing cooperatives intended for working-class citizens and professionals in New Delhi become rich overnight while people in neighboring slums starved. In his new autobiography, “Going Back to Gettysburg: Autobiography of a Corrupt Indian” (published by Partridge India), Lal draws stark contrasts between the war waged by Americans and led by Abraham Lincoln to abolish slavery with today’s attitude of the Indian middle class, which he says has forced millions of Indians to live in slave-like conditions. Lal regards Lincoln as one of the founding fathers of the modern concepts of democracy and human rights. Lal claims the real liberator of India was not Gandhi but Norman Borlaug, who saved a large part of the Indian population from starvation deaths by his discovery of high-yielding hybrid grains. Likewise, Lal predicts that the rampant corruption in India can only be destroyed by the information technology revolution, which he believes will replace currency notes with digital currency. In comparing Civil War-era America to modern-day India, Lal demonstrates how the norms practiced by Indian democracy relate to, and differ from, the norms of Western governments – political rules without which he feels no democracy can truly survive. “Where is India heading – doom or prosperity?” Lal asks. “The question affects the whole world, not just India.” “Going Back to Gettysburg” By M.B. Lal Hardcover | 6 x 9 in | 302 pages | ISBN 9781482819434 Softcover | 6 x 9 in | 302 pages | ISBN 9781482819427 E-Book | 302 pages | ISBN 9781482819410 Available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble Source: PRWEB
