A Constitution For A Democracy by Rohit Kajaria is an illuminating non-fiction book seeking a way to establish a perfect democracy devoid of the ills of the prevalent governments of the world. Kajaria cites the examples of two of the most powerful nations of western civilization, the United States of America and the United Kingdom, and uses their government structure to showcase the advantages and shortcomings of modern democracies. The author offers an alternative constitution that harbors none of the perceived deficiencies of the aforementioned institutions and may very well lay the groundwork for an ideal republic. Amongst the author's list of solutions for a robust government in the modern era is a need for the number of senators allocated to a state to be directly proportional to the population.

As seen in recent years, even democracies are not exempt from the ills of corruption and abuse of power. Author Rohit Kajaria visualizes an ideal democracy where the power of the constitution itself negates the corrupt influences or power-hungry ambitions of a single individual who finds himself in a position of authority. The author insists upon a secular republic with one's religious practice being a private matter and the retirement age of individuals in public offices set at 70. Personally, I found myself agreeing with almost every single solution suggested by Kajaria. A Constitution For A Democracy is an enlightening read that anyone seeking knowledge about how major western democracies work should take a look into. Highly recommended.
