This is not to deny the frowth that India has registered over the last 63 years, especially over the last two decades, India has been growing at rates fairly higher than the world average.

In spite of this high economic growth rate, the issues of poverty, unemployement, malnourishment of children has not been adequately taken care of. These are some few details that the book discusses. This book is based on articles written by well known economists and covers all aspects of the Indian Economy.
