Product Description

The difficulty of finding solutions After six decades of policy-making and planning that appear perfect on paper vast pockets of poverty persist across the country accompanied by low human development indices. In Poor but Spirited in Karimnagar Sumita Dawra recounts her experiences as collector in the district of Karimnagar in Andhra Pradesh and grapples with the question of why even with crores of rupees of government funding well-meaning implementing agencies and constructive action this wide gap between intention and results continues. The stories cover diverse populations from child labour to cotton farmers from coal miners to malnourished power loom weavers. They traverse the thick Naxal-infested forests course along the Godavari and meander through the 'multiple urban worlds' of Ramagundem and the dry upland areas of Sircilla examining the key issues that need to be addressed. Each chapter divided into three sections - identifying the problem providing the context and offering the solution along with a useful statistical guide that provides a quick overview - looks at the key points of lacunae in service delivery in the concerned areas and provides a starting point for a more effective engagement in the tackling of the problems. Based on successful models of governance within the country and elsewhere this book from a seasoned bureaucrat offers a fresh contemporary perspective on administration and governance.
