State Religion and Politics- Selected Writings of Satyapal Dang (An Old and Rare Book)
|Gyan Publishing House, New Delhi
Old-age infirmity has not prevented him from continuing his work. His wife Vimla Dang has been a source of much inspiration and support for him. The renowned pen pusher has now published his second work. Past, present and future of State, religion and politics are woven in ten thematic chapters over 300 pages. Written in simple yet idiomatic English, the book is repository of factual and documented goings on in the largest democracy of the world. Hopefully, posterity will learn memorable lessons from an erudite statesman who would not sacrifice his principles and convictions for any short-term advantage, for any reason for that matter.
He and his wife stuck to Amritsar throughout the tragic years of terrorism, organising people to fight it, giving relief to victims of terrorism and working for and strengthening communal harmony.
The Dangs set another example by voluntarily withdrawing from elective posts in the CPI and outside. In 1997, he was honoured with the Padma Bhushan award while Vimla Dang had been earlier bestowed the Padma Shree Award in 1991.
Mr. Amit Garg of Gyan Publishing House, New Delhi 110002 asked me if I had written or could write a book to be published by them on the topic of kidney market in Amritsar.
Selection is entirely mine. Topics dealt with are varied but all are topical and are likely to remain so, for quite some time. There are in this book some of my writings on topics like Ram Janam Bhumi and Ram Mandir in Ayodhaya on the one hand and Kashmir on the other. Corruption including that of Prakash Singh Badal and the fight against it as also morality and ethical values, etc, of course. There are also writings about topics like need of Communist unity, etc. Kidney market too of course, is there.
