Dharmendra Pradhan Launches Book 'India: The Mother of Democracy'

  • Releasing the book, "India: the mother of democracy", Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said that it was an attempt to showcase the democratic ethos ingrained in India since the beginning of the civilisation.

  • The book has 30 articles written by 30 different authors tracing India's democratic history, starting from the Harappan civilisation. It has been divided into six parts: archaeology, literature, numismatics and epigraphy; gana, mahajanapada, rajya: a legacy of 'Loktantra'; bhakti and sampraday: visualising democratic traditions; the blossoming of democratic 'Ism's: Jainism, Buddhism and Sikhism; the idea of 'Loka': Janjati and Khaps; and tracing the ethos of democracy: humanity and colonialism.
