About The Book

This book is a basic, broad-spectrum work on the twin topics of Values and Ethics. It is not a heavy, scholarly treatise. Except in a few chapters, temptations of polemics have been kept at bay. Instead, its purpose is to convey, as simply and practically as possible, the principal tenets and contents of these two allied subjects. They have been very much in the air all over the world since the 1980s, Society is desperately longing for `holistic integrity`, not truncated efficiency, from its myriad professions. The reader of this book could commence his/her journey, even within existing constraints, towards such a paramount responsibility in a comprehensible, practical manner. To be sure, such a courageous journey should also yield deep existential joy.
