Presented to

SHRI RAJDEEP SARDESAI

with the hope

that this thesis against election-based democracy will be found to make some sense and that the Television Media will help to persuade the Political Parties, the Parliament and the Judiciary to reject election-based legislatures and governments, to be replaced by Selection-based legislatures and governments, peacefully, intelligently, lovingly.

SELECTOCRACY HAS THE POTENTIAL TO MAKE INDIA A GREAT AND NOBLE COUNTRY. SELECTOCRACY MAY TURN OUT TO BE THE TRUE DESTINY OF MANKIND.

[inscription in pen]
Dear Rajdeep Sardesai,

I am happy to present this book to you, especially because you take up such causes as “Criminalisation of Politics” in your “Big Fight” programmes. I do hope you will take up the cause of the Best Possible Governance for India which perhaps only SELECTOCRACY can provide, for all time to come.
