The Forum of Free Enterprise is a non-political organization founded in 1956 by A. D. Shroff and has been established to educate public opinion in India on free enterprise and a democratic way of life. The Forum publishes booklets to further its objects. The following booklet titled “India In The Nineties- The Most Dangerous Decade” was published on June 15, 1992, and was authored by Dr. Karan Singh. The author begins by describing Indian independence as a watershed moment in human history. He further characterizes the decade of the nineties as one of tremendous turbulence for India. According to Dr. Singh, the four basic assumptions on which the Indian State was founded – Democracy, Socialism, Secularism and Non-Alignment- are all in various stages of collapse and what is needed is a reinterpretation and reformulation of the basis of Indian polity. In his concluding remarks, Dr. Singh revisits some of the teachings of the late visionaries like Gandhi, Nehru, Vivekananda and others to stress the need for a renewed vision of India which is not based on any narrow chauvinistic ideas.
