Sanjay Prakash Sharma (Author)
Synopsis Accelerating urbanization is powerfully affecting the transformation of Indian society. In numerical terms, India’s urban population is second largest in the world after China, and is higher than the total urban population of all countries put together barring China, USA and Russia. Urban centres present tremendous opportunities for all people, including the poor. Cities are important vehicles for social and economic transformation in India. The prominent features of urbanization in India have been the increase in population, growth of slums, swelling labour force and its marginalisation, and increasing pressure on the urban space and infrastructural services. Congestion, noise, traffic jams, air pollution, and major shortages of key necessities characterize urban life. Very major city of India faces the same proliferating housing, transformation, sewerage, electric power, water supplies, schools, and hospitals. The present publication provides a portrayal of urban life in India. It deals with the means and mechanism through which people in urban India cope with their lives. The book will be highly informative to anthropologists, sociologists, human geographers and town planners.
