Written in the late 1950s, Democracy in India is Atulananda Chakrabarti’s attempt at redefining democracy. It covers two articles, “Role of Universities” and “Democracy for New India- Give Us the Definition.” In the former, he talks about universities as the central figures in shaping people’s ideas and thoughts. He says that a government’s way of functioning affects the way people live. In “Democracy for New India- Give Us the Definition,” he talks about the challenge of co-relating democracy and socialism. Atulananda urges universities and academicians from various fields to jointly work, discuss, and publish, providing the government with evidence for desirable actions and warning against misleading ones.
