Parliamentary Avenues and Alleys

Parliamentary Procedure in India, by A R Mukherjea; Oxford University Press, Calcutta 1967; pp 497,
"PARLIAMENTS are of the nature of cats", Charles I once wrote to one of his aides, Wentworth, "they ever grow cursed with age". With the parliamentary system maturing in India, one sees, these days particularly, fights almost of the 4Kil- Kenny cats' (whatever that might precisely mean) variety, so much that one recalls a British quip about the House of Lords that the best cure of an admiration for that ancient body is to go and have a look at it. Even so, parliaments are a part, quite often irritating but always indispensable, of our life in India and it is welcome that A R Mukherjea's widely acclaimed study of procedure in our legislatures now appears in a revised edition.
