"Dr. Sunil Gupta's book, ‘Thoughts Gallery ’, is a compilation of articles on different issues of society and economy. The book contains 125 articles on subjects ranging from Indian political and economic milieu to environmental and social state of affairs.
These articles are worth reading for students and researchers in the field of social sciences since Dr. Gupta has digested the issues and placed it for the readers in a simple language and sharply focused. For example he correctly brings out that more than Article 370 of the Constitution it is Article 35A that is pernicious for national integration. He also gives crisp advice in his essays such as on the economy to the people: 'Stop Expecting. Start Participating'.
Thus, I warmly welcome this book and recommend that all interested in socio-economic issues read the book."
