Overview:

Any arrangement for the allocation of social positions and goods should ... proceed on the basic assumption that everyone has a right to equal concern and respect. Any arrangement that pays unequal respect or shows unequal concern towards any one violates the basic right of all.

-Mahendra P. Singh

The Festschrift is in honour of a renowned teacher and scholar, Professor Mahendra Pal Singh. For a man who has established himself as an acclaimed academician, the book contains a set of academic writings from learned authors and friends on the subject of societal inequalities and law. Further, the Festschrift contains memoirs from his students providing an insight into the down-to-earth and humane personality of this great man.

The subject of equality has been close to Professor Singh's heart and is one, among others, on which he has written extensively. The authors honour him and accordingly address issues like substantive equality; inequality faced by the poor, children and women; conflicts and clashes arising out of diverse religious beliefs; the role of the judiciary in society; the role of education in redressing inequalities; and the necessary conditions for the operation of principles of constitutionalism and respect for international law.
