Description
Even as we celebrate Nani Palkhivala's birth centenary on 16th January, 2020, we need to remember that his life spanned  most crucial period in our country's history, when we unburdened ourselves of the yoke of colonial rule and took our rightful place in the comity of nations as one of the world's largest functioning democracies. We also need to note that the initial four decades following independence, when, having won freedom, we laboured to translate that freedom into the economic betterment of our people, coincided wit the most productive period of Nan's life. In a period when a plethora of controls and bureaucratic red tape stifled the growth of the economy and there was a marked decline in public morality, Nani, through his speeches and writings, waged a lone battle to educate the public and generate a debate on vital matters of national interest which ultimately influenced Government policy, including the economic reforms of 1991. Even more importantly, he fought valiantly against repeated parliamentary onslaughts on the Constitution ans succeeded in ensuring that our fundamental rights were not destroyed.
