Keywords:Grassroot Governance, Everyday Politics, , Participatory Governance, Decentralized Democracy, Gandhian and Nehruvian perspective etc
The focus of governance studies among academics has gradually shifted to grassroots and decentralized governance. While everyone acknowledges the importance of political participation in local governance, not much focus is placed on the invisible and covert forms of political interaction that frequently intrude into formal research. This paper aims to investigate the scope and character of traditional perspectives, primarily focusing on Gandhian and Nehruvian perspectives, as well as everyday politics.
