This simple and comprehensive book on Parliament presents in easy, non-technical language basic facts and authentic upto-date information about our Parliament. It seeks to briefly narrate the story of how our Parliament came to its present form, what it is, what it does, why it is needed, how it is constituted and how it functions. In fact, it covers the entire gamut of facts pertaining to the Indian Parliament. The concluding chapter is a resume of the working of Parliament during the last half-a-century and more.
Our Parliament is for all the citizens of India. It is written for the non-academic, non-professional, non-expert layreaders, for adult literates, for boys and girls of all ages in schools and colleges. It is hoped it will be widely read with great interest and benefit and will help to bring the Parliament nearer the People by providing to them a better understanding of the institution.
