The deep-dark period of autocracy (1975-77) in India imposed by a 58-year old Indira Gandhi. Those were months of draconian laws, extinguished freedom, Gestapo type arrests, severe press censorship, forced sterilization, impotency of intellectuals and abject surrender marked by terror of the minions and slavery of the elites that made India a fascist-type police state. The return of the sunlight of democracy due largely to the defiance of a 73-year old Jayaprakash Narayan (JP) popularly called Loknayak, a congenital democrat. Emergency was not merely the defeat of JP and his Movement against corruption, inflation and misrule, but that of the entire people. The state power of Indira Gandhi lost where as the moral authority of Jp Won. Vulnerability of India 's Institiutions Of governance and how effectively the president, Union Cabinet, Parliament, Supreme Court, Governors, State Assemblies, senior civil servants, police and intelligence agencies and the Press were manipulated by a determined prime minister and exploited by an unprincipled son 'operating from behind her sari. Above all, the crucial chapters of India 's post-Independence history – JP Movement, Emergencyy and Second Freedom that have been blacked-out from school-texts, books, forums, media and other avenues – placing it before the people of India in its true perspective.

Which they all take for granted was virtually extinguished and then restored by the indomitable spirit and sacrifice of a patriot called Jayaprakash Narayan.Printed Pages: 288.
