Women and Nutrition in Himalaya

B.R. Pant (Author)
Synopsis The fascinating Uttarakhand Himalaya has always been a matter of curiosity for saints, philosophers, tourists, filmmakers, mountaineers etc. However, the problem and hardships of this region and women in particular have hardly been a subject of constant interest. The Uttarakhand has 49.10% (4163161) women of its population. More important is the factor that women in this region contribute major share in family's income and livelihood. Their participation is found in almost all fields of the rural occupations. As a result the women in Uttarakhand are overburdened with the work load, which leads them to work since early hours of morning till late night. Not having been supplemented with adequate nutritious suffer from chronic energy deficiency, malnutrition, pre-and post-delivery problems. The present book is an effort to find out the problems of women health in Uttarakhand. This work is based on the empirical survey and first hand information. For that purpose the Uttarakhand Himalaya has been comprehensively surveyed. The book begins with an introduction of the Demography of Indian Himalaya which includes urban-rural population, density, sex-ratio, literacy etc. It moves forward in geo-physical, economic, cultural, food habits, nutritional and environmental aspects of the region with investigating the problem through sample surveys. The study concludes with the measures and suggestions for the improvement of the women status in the region. Since the present work deals with the burning aspects of social setup in Uttarakhand, therefore, it is hoped that this book would be useful for geographers, sociologists, anthropologists, economists, students and for everyone, who has a little concern for the Uttarakhand Himalaya.
