Review: House of the People by Ronojoy Sen

Politics in India is often compared to cricket, with fans following and arguing over their favorite teams. Winning elections is prioritized over the functioning of parliament. Ronojoy Sen's book on India's Lok Sabha examines the institution at the heart of Indian democracy, tracing its origins and highlighting its decline in recent years. The book sheds light on the underrepresentation of women, Muslims, and marginalized communities in parliament, as well as the prevalence of criminal records among MPs. Sen concludes that India's parliament is in need of strengthening.
