Rural Industrialisation in A Modern Economy

N.K. Puri (Author)
Synopsis Rural Industrialisation in a Modern Economy provides the reader, particularly the reader interested in rural economics and handicrafts, a detailed insight into the functioning of a District Industries Centre of a state government. The Alwar DIC, set up as a model unit, has performed remarkably well considering the limitations of finance, distance and illiteracy. The author, Dr. Puri, has honestly describe the successes and shortcomings of the industrialization of rural Alwar district, with the aid of a wealth of tables and illustrations. Rural Industrialisation in a Modern Economy should prove an eye-opener to skeptics who believe India will remain backward. This book tells a story that should prove inspiring in its straightforward advocacy of raising the standard of living of the rural poor, by means of encouraging the modernization of the traditional crafts to bring the craftsmen prosperity without the attendant evils of industrial societies.

About the author

N.K. Puri

Dr. N.K. Puri is at present working as a Senior Executive with the Rajasthan Small Scale Industries Corporation. Born in 1942, he has had his education at the University of Delhi where he successfully underwent the MA and MBA programmes of study. Dr. Puri’s career and his interest in the rural scene happily coincide, and the result of his sincere interest in the rural areas of Rajasthan and its handicrafts. He will shortly be publishing a book on Tribal Arts and crafts of Rajasthan which is bound to interest the reader. Dr. Puri’s travels outside India have given his writing a measure of objectivity that adds maturity to his writing. His study of the problems and prospects of the wood and metal crafts of Alwar should be regarded as a model for other such studies.
