Yes, in past decade India has shown a tremendous pace in growth and among one of the fastest developing nations. But, these issues need an immediate attention. There are laws made in regard but mere making laws do not solve the problems; they need strict implementation and amelioration of them and above all, the participation from the countrymen.
He is worried looking at the growing corruption in the politics and irresponsible behaviors of the politicians, the degraded standard of education which only imparts a degree and not making a better human, the speed of populations’ growth which only flights every year despite the laws and efforts not yielding any results, the role of media in society and religion which is considered an important arm of the society.
He discussed the issues at length in his book and wants everyone and not just readers and those who are occupying the higher posts of leadership and decision-making to think with him and act before it is getting too late. He suggests some solutions which could be implemented for the benefit and prosperity of the nation.
