Beyond the Binary: Books and Bylines, Authors Press.

Covid-19 has capsized the life and livelihood, as never before. Masks have become ubiquitous and despondency has become the new normal. In India, besides the swirling economic uncertainty, there is wide degradation of Indian democracy, where institutional independence is getting emasculated. Judiciary, which is expected to exercise checks and balances on legislative and executive excesses, is being perceived to be ‘speaking the language of the executive’ and displaying a’ combination of avoidance, mendacity and lack of zeal’. This book tries to capture the myriad anguish of our times on different issues like constitutional morality, challenges to the economy in terms of teeming migrant workers on the street, widespread unemployment, vulnerability of children nutrition and the binary manner in which each issue is being perceived. It also contains a number of fascinating book review.
