Coalition Politics in India - Problems and Prospects (Hardcover): Mahendra Prasad Singh Coalition Politics in India - Problems and Prospects (Hardcover)
Mahendra Prasad Singh; Edited by Anil Mishra

With the replacement of the dominant party system in India, minority and/or coalition governments in New Delhi have become the order of the day. Except for the Congress minority government of P.V. Narasimha Rao and National Democratic Alliance government of Atal Behari Vajpayee, all such governments since 1989 have been unstable. Yet instability apart, coalition governments have been effective in enhancing democratic legitimacy, representativeness and national unity. Major policy shifts like neo-liberal economic reforms, federal decentring, and grass roots decentralization, in theory or practice, are largely attributable to the onset of federal coalitional governance. Coalition governments in states and at the centre have also facilitated gradual transition of the Marxist-Left and the Hindu-Right into the political establishment, and thus contributed to the integration of the party system as well as the nation. The same major national parties which initially rejected the idea of coalition politics have today accepted it and are maturing into skilled and virtuoso performers at the game. In a rather short span of over a decade, India has witnessed coalition governments of three major muted hues: (a) middle-of-the-road Centrist Congress minority government of P.V. Narasimha Rao, going against its Left of Centre reputation, initiated neo-liberal economic reforms in 1991; (b) three Left-of-Centre governments formed by the Janata Dal-led National/United Front; and (c) two Right-of-Centre coalition governments formed by the Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Aliance under Atal Behari Vajpayee, a votary of secular version of Hindu nationalism. In the wake of the decline of Congress dominance, the fragmentation of the national party system and the emergence of party systems at the regional level have turned India into a chequered federal chessboard. The past and likely future patterns of coalition governments in New Delhi are suggestive of at least three models of power sharing: (a) coalition of more or less equal partners, e.g. the National Front and the United Front, (b) coalition of relatively smaller parties led by a major party, e.g. National Democratic Alliance; and (c) coalition of relatively smaller parties facilitated but not necessarily led by a prime minister from the major parties formed in 2004 around the Indian National Congress, avowing secular Indian nationalism. The fifteen papers in this book analyse the various dimensions of coalition government at the Centre and in some of the states of the Indian federation against the background of a theoretical framework that seeks to integrate coalitions among parties, castes and communities and tribes, as well as classes at electoral, parliamentary, and cabinet levels.

R1,607 Discovery Miles 16 070 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Vesiculobullous diseases are immunologically mediated disorders that cause blisters, erosion and erythema of both skin and mucous membranes. They are uncommon clinicopathologic syndromes whose diagnosis depends on identification of characteristic causative agent and clinicopathologic features. None of the histopathologic patterns of vesiculobullous conditions is absolutely specific for any of them. For a variety of reasons, these conditions represent the most difficult challenge for clinical diagnosis. Bullous diseases can mimic one another clinically and histologically. These lesions are quite distinctive in early stages, but after "blisters" rupture and disappear, the resultant ulcerative lesion is quite non-specific in appearance. Originally surrounded by red rims these lesions appear white, while the vesicles or blebs are intact. When the blebs fully rupture and become emptied, their white appearance usually disappears. In the oral cavity both vesicle and bullae are more flattened, with a smooth gelatinous surface. When attempting to differentiate between a vesicular from a bullous lesion, the size of the individual lesion is the key to diagnosis.

G X E Interaction and Genetic Divergence Study in Aromatic Rice (Paperback): Praveen Singh, Anil Pandey G X E Interaction and Genetic Divergence Study in Aromatic Rice (Paperback)
Praveen Singh, Anil Pandey
R1,395 Discovery Miles 13 950 Special order

Present study was undertaken with thirty aromatic rice genotype grown in four environments (24 June and 14 July sown for two years; kharif 2008 and 2009) in randomized block design following standard package of practices for aromatic rice at rice research field, RAU, Pusa, Bihar. Observations were recorded on twenty one morpho-physiological and quality traits. NDR 6235 was the best and significantly out yielded with an average yield of 2965.37 kg/ha followed by Narendra Lalmati (2889.94 kg/ha), NDR 9542 (2868.12 kg/ha) and Birsamati (2708.5kg/ha) over all environments. Among the different date of sowing, E3 (24 June, 2009) gave the highest grain yield followed by E1 (24 June, 2008) and it was minimum in E2 (14 July, 2008) followed by E4 (14 July, 2009). Thus to realize optimum yields, sowing should be done in second fortnight of June. Four crosses, Badsahbhog X Pusa Sugandh 3, Badsahbhog X Jasmaine, Badsahbhog X Sanwal Basmati and Badsahbhog X Rajendra Kasturi have been suggested for the improvement of yield and quality characters through selection breeding programme. Farmers can adapt cultivation of premium quality aromatic rices viz. Sanwal Basmati, Pusa Sugandh 3 and Jasmaine

R564 R465 Discovery Miles 4 650 Save R99 (18%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The Maoists have taken up arms. Their focus is on tribals and lower caste people for support. Stress is on militarisation with hierarchy and building of 'People's Guerrilla Army' capable of destroying the state machinery. Violence and breakdown of law and order is causing loss of innocent lives and damage to property. The book has been covered in five chapters by the contributors. The first chapter deals with the Maoist insurgency in India and analyses the reasons that led to the Communist Party of India (CPI) taking up the cause of the lower castes and scheduled tribes. The second chapter deals with use of air power in combating the Maoist insurgency. The author has suggested deployment of drones to detect insurgent camps in the forests and use of helicopters for evacuation of casualties and other measures to facilitate logistics support for Countering Insurgency. An appraisal of India's Intelligence agencies has been covered in Chapter Three. The fourth and fifth chapters are concerning the manner in which the United States has reacted after the 9/11 terrorist attack in the USA and how India reacted after the terrorist attack in Mumbai on 26 November 2008. The author has suggested the need to evolve a Comprehensive Internal Security Policy covering all dimensions and all levels -- political, economic and social.
