Rural Transformation and Peoples Entitlements

G. Palanithurai (Author)
Synopsis Indian society has witnessed a cataclysmic change, both externally and internally, due to the implications of modernization, westernization, industrialization and the initiatives of the government sponsored development programmes. The change witnessed in the society does not reflect the positive elements for achieving peace and prosperity. As a result, one could witness social conflict in the Indian society despite the functioning of democracy to achieve development. Government machinery has involved in development activities in a massive way to alleviate poverty and to achieve prosperity. But still the question remains unanswered as to what extent basic entitlements of the poor are secured. This book tries to analyse the process of social transformation and evaluate the role of government in ensuring the entitlements of the people. The issues are analysed not in the backdrop of any theory but from the perspective of the people. The discussion on the issues is being visualized in a futuristic way.
