Can India ever swing back from its current sojourn in la-la land to a position Left of Centre? Former parliamentarian and minister, Kamal Morarka has always been someone who speaks his mind. Left of Centre, a collection of his speeches in Parliament, reflects his extensive knowledge on a variety of subjects, his clarity of thought, his oratorical excellence and, most importantly, his concern for the ordinary citizen. Although economic and financial matters were his forte, as the speeches in this book will reveal, he was extremely well-versed on all the hot topics of his time. With witty observations and practical suggestions, this thought-provoking collection showcases Morarka's views on tumultuous and significant events of the 1990s, including the Bofors scam, the liberalization of the economy, the Babri Masjid demolition, the Harshad Mehta scam and more.
