This introductory chapter begins by briefly considering the 'constitutional problem' that exists in India. It argues that neither one of the major institutions and high offices established by the Constitution has worked satisfactorily; be it the President, Parliament the Prime Minister, the Council of Ministers, or the Supreme Court of India. This is followed by discussions of how India's federalism suffered grievously at the hands of successive governments and the drafting as well as drafters of the Constitution of India. The chapter concludes by calling for a renewal of India's political life and in the revival of the political culture which once produced men of stature and worth in our public life.
