This omnibus is a collection of essays that focuses on issues concerning the president of India, along with parliament, the judiciary, the states, the armed forces, the process of accountability, the Election Commission, and the civil services. It brings together two volumes, Constitutional Questions in India and Citizens' Rights, Judges and State Accountability, published in 2000 and 2002 respectively. The first volume looks at the politically tumultuous years between 1989 and 1999, while the second examines the elections, institutions, and various commissions of enquiry created by the government. The two volumes revolve around a central theme, the rule of law in democratic society, and discusses issues ranging from Parliament's powers and responsibilities, respect for federalism, judges' powers and duties, and citizen's rights as well as the corresponding duty of accountability that devolves on the state. Other topics covered by the omnibus include freedom of information and the citizen's right to know, foreign policy, the sanctity of the Constitution, parliamentary resolutions, the court's powers of contempt, and the right to strike. While the volume highlights the process of accountability across India's institutions, it demonstrates how citizens can assert their rights in the face of institutional disinterest and injustice.
