The writer is a businessman who came up the hard way. A time came when all the spent up feelings found a practical way to resolve things which had been troubled him as though an inner voice gave instructions as to what was to be done. The result is this small book. He felt that democracy is the best way to govern us but its shortcomings are a great source of our worries. Resolution of problems by reasonable arguments seems to fail and the ever present greed seems to be perpetually present in all aspects of life. He felt that it is unjust to allow people to go hungry and there was an urgent need to cut the shackles that bind us and to be truly able to hold our heads high. Wars, we know, have not improved our situations and have only brought sorrow and destruction and yet we continue to build killing equipment as though they would bring us peace and happiness. In spite of all the goodness of all religions which we have been following for thousands of years, our divisive ways keep on multiplying. He felt that there has to be a break somewhere otherwise situations are going to make us so very individualistic that we will become truly lonely in a crowded world. The dangers we are facing from climate change, possibilities of a 3rd world war, financial conditions where we live on loans, all gave an impetus to the writing of this book. The writer feels that this is possibly the only solution we have.
Breaking away from something is never easy. The writer, a firm believer in God, also believes in the goodness of his creations including mankind. He feels that circumstances will one day make us take a better road to our happiness. This road has perhaps been laid out in this book.

Through this book Mr. Jan Goopta tried to alert us, make us conscious about side effects of blind speed of development. It`s great effort. All of us should think and do the needful to avoid the foreseen problems.
